EFT: Get your freedom

Unlocking Healing with Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT):

Overcoming Betrayal and Hurt

Betrayal and emotional hurt can leave deep scars that affect our well-being and relationships. If you’re grappling with the aftermath of betrayal, you might feel overwhelmed, angry, or stuck.

Traditional therapy methods can be incredibly helpful, but there’s also a complementary approach that many have found transformative: Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).

What is Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)?

EFT, often referred to as "tapping," is a powerful holistic healing method that combines elements of traditional Chinese medicine with modern psychology. It involves tapping on specific acupressure points on the body while focusing on particular emotions or issues.

This practice aims to balance the body's energy system, helping to release negative emotions and physical pain.

How EFT Helps with Betrayal and Hurt

1. Releasing Negative Emotions: Betrayal often brings up a complex mix of emotions such as anger, sadness, and resentment. EFT allows you to acknowledge these feelings in a safe space and then release them, reducing their intensity.

2. Restoring Balance: When you experience emotional trauma, it can disrupt your body's energy flow. Tapping on specific meridian points helps to restore this balance, promoting a sense of calm and well-being.

3. Empowering Self-Healing: EFT empowers you to take an active role in your healing process. By regularly practicing tapping, you can continually work through layers of emotional pain, making steady progress toward emotional freedom.

Step-by-Step Guide to EFT for Betrayal and Hurt

1. Identify the Issue: Begin by focusing on a specific event or feeling related to the betrayal. It could be a particular incident or a recurring emotion.

2. Assess the Intensity: Rate the intensity of your emotion on a scale of 0 to 10. This helps track your progress as you tap.

3. Set Up Statement: Create a setup statement that acknowledges the problem and affirms self-acceptance, such as, “Even though I feel betrayed and hurt, I deeply and completely accept myself.”

4. Tapping Sequence:

- Start tapping on the Karate Chop point (the outer edge of your hand) while repeating the setup statement three times.

- Move through the following points, tapping about 7 times on each while repeating a reminder phrase such as—-

“this betrayal”

Tapping points :

- Top of the head

- Eyebrow

- Side of the eye

- Under the eye

- Under the nose

- Chin

- Collarbone

- Under the arm

5. Reassess the Intensity: After one round of tapping, reassess the intensity of your emotion. If it’s still high, repeat the process until you notice a significant decrease.

Integrating EFT into Your Healing Journey

While EFT can be incredibly effective, it’s important to integrate it with other healing practices. Working with a therapist can provide deeper insights and support. Journaling, meditation, and connecting with supportive friends and family are also valuable.

Remember, healing from betrayal takes time and patience. Be gentle with yourself and celebrate each step forward.

Emotional Freedom Technique is a tool that can help you reclaim your power and move toward a brighter, more peaceful future.
