Maintaining Balance in Your Emotional Energy with EFT

Emotional Energy and What Impacts It

Emotions are energy. Actually, emotional energy is energy in motion. While it is true that the hours you work and the amount of sleep you get contribute to your energy levels, energy is derived as much from your emotional well-being as it does from all that is happening around you.

Your emotional energy is an energy thermometer and can often signal a personal energy crisis. Your life may be full and satisfying but it may also be too full. You may find yourself overwhelmed and running on empty.

We are told to take care of our bodies, but leave our souls to languish. It is not selfish to work at our soul health. Emotional energy is the fuel that powers our physical and mental engines.

Caring for our emotional energies start with a regular connection with nature and spending time alone if you are an introvert or time with others if you are an extrovert. Know that the most debilitating drain on energy is self-criticism. Be sure to catch any negative chatter that goes on in your brain and restate it. Turn negative self-talk into positives.

Emotions are energy and that energy is derived as much from your emotional well-being as it does from external sources. We live in a culture that tells us that winning and finishing is everything. However, quitting or admitting you made a wrong decision is a better course of action. Releasing what doesn’t work calms our emotions and frees us to experience an energy buildup for other things we need to do.

Another energy destroyer is a lack of boundaries—the inability to set parameters around how we want to be treated and how far we are willing to accept behaviors. You’ve heard the saying, “Get a life.” Personalizing your life increases your energy and fuels your well-being.

Pay attention to when the expectations of others interfere with your own wants and needs. Don’t allow their ideas of your duties and responsibilities to crowd your days and rob you of the joy of daily living. And, whatever you do, don’t worry. Worry is merely practicing over and over again, in relentless repetition, something without a solution that may never happen.

Tapping and Emotional Balance 

Imagine tapping away all that emotional burden you’ve been caring and even any chronic pain you’re experiencing. Yes, it’s absolutely possible! Imagine no acupuncture, no pills, no injections, and no doctor visits. Imagine a healing from emotional and physical ailments without the cost of a professional. EFT tapping may be the answer and often works where nothing else will to maintain emotional and even physical balance. EFT—emotional freedom technique—breathes fresh air into the healing process by borrowing from the Chinese, the meridian system. While acupuncture, acupressure and the like primarily focuses on physical ailments, EFT stands back from this ancient process and points it at emotional issues as well.

EFT is a way to heal the body, relieve physical pain, release emotional traumas and create a life of abundance and joy, and does it through this strange looking, but wildly effective technique, Nick Ortner calls “tapping.”

EFT is closely related to acupuncture, but it doesn’t use needles. Instead, it uses a simple two-pronged process that allows you to mentally “tune in” to specific psychological problems while stimulating the body’s meridian points by tapping on them with our fingertips.

Properly done, EFT appears to balance disturbances in the meridian system and often reducing conventional therapies from years to months, hours to minutes.

How Does EFT Work?

The basic Tapping process is easy to learn and can be performed anywhere, with impressive do-it-yourself results. Need a boost when psychologically challenged, concentrate on the problem and tap. The basic technique is portable and costs nothing. There is no special education or special tools required.

The body, like everything in the universe, is composed of energy. Restore balance to the body’s energy, and you will mend the negative emotions and physical symptoms that stem from energy disruption. Tapping restores the body’s energy balance, and negative emotions are conquered.

The Chinese discovered 100 meridian points that when stimulated, would heal. Acupuncture takes years to master. Acupuncture practitioners must memorize hundreds of meridian points along the body and the proper use of needles. Tapping requires no such education. It gives you the power to heal yourself, putting control over your destiny and health back into your hands. EFT operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional issues standing in the way of healing. It is common knowledge that any kind of emotional stress can impede the natural healing potential of the human body.

Research done at a prestigious university found that the brain’s stress and fear response is controlled by an almond-shaped part of your brain called the amygdala. It was discovered that stimulating the meridian points as used in acupuncture, acupressure, and of course, tapping, controls the affects stress and fear create. The points that have to be stimulating and the mental exercises that have to be practiced can be located on any number of websites.

Bottom line: Say, “yes” to yourself and be mindful of the fact that unmade decisions and postponed projects kill your energy stores. The quality and quantity of your emotional energy supply is completely within your control whether you employ EFT or any other modality. The quality of our lives directly correlates to our emotional energy. There are few things with which we have so much power. Take yours in hand and assume the responsibility of putting more joy in your life. When we have more joy, we give more away.

7 Steps to Harness the Power of Your Intuition

Intuition vs Instinct

Intuition, as important as it is, is not the same as instinct. The words intuition and instinct are often used inter-changeably but are completely different. Intuition is an innate knowledge or belief of something you can’t explain but you know is right. Instinct, on the other hand, is an autonomic response to stimuli without thinking. An instinctive human reaction is to raise your hand when you think someone might strike you. It is a natural behavior that functions according to fixed patterns, but intuition is a mental process that happens outside the realm of preset behaviors.

The Power of Intuition

Intuition is a process that takes place in the mind. It uses past events, and insignificant information and unrecognized trivia, to aid our perception. With intuition, you may find that somehow you are able to recognize things and situations not plainly evident. It is an unexplainable insight that nudges you to see beyond the obvious. For example, you may sense someone is not telling you the truth. You have no explanation for it, but your gut tells you something is not right. Intuition is the thoughts and feelings you have about a particular situation that can’t be explained or justified by logic, and is often correct.

Your spirit is disseminating emotions, experiences, feelings, and acquired knowledge that gives you what is called intuitive instruction. It is intuition that is prompting you—instructing you—to consider what you are feeling and what your other faculties are saying. Intuition has the ability to talk to us in unexpected ways. It works with both your conscious and unconscious mind. It also uses your body to send messages unique to you.

Our mind has the ability to archive all kinds of information not logged in on a conscious level. We often pick up information subconsciously without comprehending it, such as body language, tone of voice, or a particular look. It is quite possible that your intuition has been working for you your entire life and has always sent you messages you should have heeded.

The voice of intuition can be so strong and so persistent that it leaves you without rest until you carry out its dictates. You can learn to fully recognize your intuition’s nudging in time and with practice. And when you do, that feeling of persistent nudging should always get your attention. So, pay attention to your intuition and watch for any physical responses. It may be intuition sending you a message.

The Steps to Increasing Your Intuitive Power

The point to most everything in life is to become better at whatever talents and skills we were gifted. The same is true for anything within the psychic realm. Today we’ll discuss what foundational principles are essential for psychic growth.

Clairvoyants are those with an exceptional ability to gaze into the spiritual realm through their mind’s eye and detect things exhibited as nonphysical energies. Everyone is endowed with some measure of clairvoyance. The trick is to learn how to increase your clairvoyant power and make better sense of the world around you.

  • The first and foremost foundation for increasing any psychic power, regardless of the extent of that power, is to put self aside. It is essential that you rely on the power of the universe and not yourself. The universe is attempting to speak through you, so don’t limit it with self.
  • Take time to relax. Meditate and breathe slowly. Rid your mind of every thought. Meditation alone will change your brain waves, decrease your metabolic rate and relieve tension.
  • To increase your clairvoyant skills, be sure to maintain a positive attitude at all times and believe in what you are doing. A level of faith is essential. If you think it isn’t going to work, it won’t. You can’t be in tune with your mystic gifts unless you are at peace with yourself, your beliefs, and others.
  • Overcome any fears you have about being a psychic. Psychic contacts and other supernatural phenomena can be frightening, but fear can hinder your ability more than negativity. If you want to get in touch with your spiritual side, you can’t be afraid of what you will learn or see. Instead, think of the good you can do with the power you were given.
  • Practice. You need to become familiar with the process of connecting with the spiritual realm. You have to learn what to expect and what your skills are capable of doing. You can’t just have a fleeting experience with something as serious and as discerning as messages sent from the universe. Practice enough to learn to trust it and correctly interpret the messages you receive.
  • Take time to feel what it means to be in the moment and gain confidence in what you are learning. Move your familiarity with your clairvoyant skills from friend to companion.
  • And whatever you do, remember any use of your powers should be for the benefit of others, not for personal gain or recognition. People who become selfish with their skills tend to lose them, and your perceptions and interpretations will only be a projection of self—an unreliable reading.

You will hear me give this advice often. Forgetting self is the foundation of any psychic practice at any level. A serious and giving mindset is path to expanding your power. If you are unsure of what powers you may have, take a look at chapter six in Take the Leap. You’ll get a good introduction to what it means to be psychic.
