Dr. Joe Dispenza Discussing Physiology of EFT

My take-away on this wonderful video interview with Dr. Joe Dispenza: This explains WHY tapping on negative past events is the KEY to change. It's all physiology!
We tap on the emotions that keep us stuck to changing the future.
Events are lodged in implicit memories (there is something called explicit memories, too) where the events are STORED in our subconscious mind & our life is run from there.
EFT produces the alpha/theta brains waves, as it does in meditation. This is where we heal and CHANGE.
In reality past events are irrelevant (they are PAST), but it's the emotions attached to them that keep us stuck. So past events are what we tap on because they are the VEHICLE to get us to the feelings that need changed.
"Dark Night of the Soul" is God allowing those circumstances and giving us an opportunity to change.
Emotions ARE the end product of life events, thus one of the EFT techniques is "future tapping." At about 42 minutes, Joe plows into meditation. We use EFT not meditation (you can if you choose to use that), but meditation is a similar process to tapping because we are PAYING ATTENTION to thoughts and body feelings (this is mindfulness).
Life change happens when we MAKE the effort to actually tap. Not thinking about tapping or consider tapping, but tapping! This is probably the "difficult" part of the EFT tapping process - doing it! Once you have a tapping habit instilled, it does pretty much become effortless!
In this interview, insert God for Joe's "universe" and think Biblically as Dispenza talks!
Science seems to prove WHY EFT actually works! Thank you, Lord Jesus, for this opportunity to change our life to more reflect You and who You want us to be.

Remember please! EFT is not a substitute for good medical care, so please consult your own personal physician when you need medical or psychological help!

Dr. Gabor Mate on Emotional Pain

A wonderful Dr. Gabor Mate video explaining why many of our negative behaviors - gambling, workaholic, alcohol & drug addiction, porn, sex, eating, nail biting, shopping, etc., etc. have underlying trauma driving it all.
It can take just one negative emotional episode, one comment, for us to begin a lifetime core belief (belief bomb) that transforms our life and sends us spiraling into some type of chronic life altering behavior, something we never asked for and cannot often understand how we arrived there.

Tapping is often the answer to this emotional pain. If you haven't begun your tapping journey, today might just be the day!

Remember, EFT is not a substitute for sound medical care, so please contact your own personal physician if medical or psychological care is needed.

Can Christians Use EFT Tapping?

Interesting article that addresses whether or not we Christians can use acupuncture. EFT is considered "needle-less acupuncture" because we tap on the acupressure points, not needle them.
I think this article succinctly says what I have tried to explain in the 5 EFT for Christians books I have written.
1). Chinese medicine and Chinese religion are 2 different things, just as Western Medicine and any western religious beliefs are completely different. Usually, when we show up in an ER, we don't ask the trauma physician if he or she is a Christian, we are just grateful for their help!
2). As a Practitioner in EFT when working with a client who has physical issues, our first question is, "have you seen a doctor?" There is definitely a place for both Eastern and Western medicine. If I have a gangrene gallbladder, probably caused by my reaction to abuse, where I carry around rage, anger, hatred, I'm not necessarily going to try to "cure" it with tapping. I want a competent surgeon to remove it before it bursts and I become septic. Then I will want to deal with the negative emotions that got me in the fix to begin with so something else physical doesn't go haywire!
3). Being a history buff, I agree with this author that not all early Western medicine researchers, such as William Harvey, Lister, Salk, etc. were Christians. They might have been. Who cares? Does that mean I reject all their findings? Of course, I don't. Their religious beliefs as they researched how God put together the human body has absolutely no bearing on what they personally believed about the Creator Himself!
4). Research surely now seems to show that there is a direct relationship between our emotions and our physical health. God is in the healing business. Jesus performed many miracles, as did His apostles. Miracles still happen today. Healing is God's purview, not satan's. satan never healed anyone! So, like the instructions to Apostle Peter in Acts, eat sacrificed meat, it doesn't matter what the original intent or belief system was, God blesses it and sanctions for our good because He created it for our well being.
Comments? Thoughts?
Remember, EFT is not a substitute for medical care, so please contact your own personal physician before tapping on any physical issues or problems.

Epigenetics and EFT

As I often do, I pulled out a copy of paragraphs of an article to comment on, but please read it in its entirety. It's not that long.

"We often do not take into account that epigenetically it has been shown that a father’s sperm literally carries the genetic residue of his traumatic experiences in addition to the life experiences of a mother who is carrying the eggs of her yet preconceived child. He references the traumatic lineage of affecting three generations with a singular traumatic event that is fascinating to really take into account."
My comment: This always amazes me as it confirms Scripture of the Exodus and Numbers references to the "sins of the fathers". Sins of the fathers isn't necessarily sins but epigenetic residues tagged ONTO DNA. DNA (gene) doesn't change, but they get tagged with a protein that marks them as important genetic information and is then passed down the generations. Some day I will take time and do a study of the OT word "sin" to see what God really meant here!
"Here are some questions from Mark’s book that you might ask yourself:
• Could you be feeling like, behaving like, suffering like, atoning for, or carrying the grief for someone who came before you?
• Do you have symptoms, feeling, or behaviors that are difficult to explain in the context of your life experience?
• Was there a trauma in the family (an early death of a parent, child, sibling or an abandonment, murder, crime, or suicide etc.), an event that was too terrible, painful or shameful to talk about?
• Could you be connected with that event, living a life similar to the person no one talks about?
• Could you be reliving this family member’s trauma as though it were your own? These kind of questions have us looking beyond our own life experiences and begin the expanded view of looking to how, for a variety of reasons, we have taken on a mission that in a sense has nothing to do with us."
My comment: When one understands emotionally that some of these questions are true in his or her life, most likely a Christian EFT Practitioner's help will be needed to dig to the bottom of the pain.
"Words act as carrier pigeons from the unconscious, fluttering forth with messages that need to be revealed, be it in metaphor or language that feels somehow estranged or belonging to another’s life experience."

My comment: I love this paragraph because METAPHORS and our OFT REPEATED comments or statements (or those of our family members) frequently give clues to what lies beneath the emotional surface. Pay attention to WHAT you say. If you have a saying you repeat over and over, tap and dig below it. Find why it is an important thing stuck in your vocabulary! And take some time this holiday season to ask older family members what life experiences they have had and what family stories they have been told. You might receive a greater gift that will expand your emotional healing than you ever imagined possible! God bless your healing!!

Remember, EFT is not a substitute for sound medical care, so please contact your own personal physician when you feel medical or psychological care is needed.

Annoyances, annoyances, oh, how I hate being "annoyed" which probably translates more into feeling "inconvenienced". Robo calls! How many of those do each of us receive every day?

A week ago, I was feeling "beside" myself with the constant home phone interruptions, none of which were anyone we knew.

I tapped on how I felt about all the excess noise and phone racket which lead me to a brilliant conclusion to have Brad dig out the phone operator's manual & figure out HOW to turn OFF the RINGER!

The answering machine still works, so we would get any important messages.

Conclusion? Calming myself, instead of whining and complaining about the rude phone calls, helped me ID a solution. And that is what tapping does! Calms us enough to help think through a problem, reaching a solution!

What has EFT helped you with recently to quiet down enough to fix a problem in your life?
