What is EFT?
EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique, works with psychological issues by tapping on meridian points, essentially very important acupressure points. Tapping works by retraining the limbic system. The limbic system is that part of our brain where we source our emotions and long term memory, and it is where negative experiences are encoded. By tapping, we can actually halt the stress response, so we don’t go into “flight or fight” mode either to a perceived threat or an actual threat. By tapping or stimulating a combination of acupoints, whilst thinking of an upsetting event/problem also retrains the limbic response. This is why EFT is so successful in stopping phobias, anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, and any emotional trauma past or present. Dealing with emotional trauma not only benefits us from a mental perspective but also from a physical perspective as it is now scientifically evident that emotion manifests in a physical way and affects our health and wellbeing.
What is Matrix Reimprinting?
Matrix Reimprinting is a fascinating extension to EFT. It takes another step into psychology and how our childhood, or emotional trauma in whatever sense of the word affects who we are today. We can limit ourselves by the beliefs we hold about ourself, we can possess a very low self esteem, or low self worth about ourselves, we may even be punishing ourselves time after time with repeated patterns of behaviour that we just can’t seem to break. This can all be a result of an event that took place in the past, a type of relationship – quite often a parent -child relationship, that still affects us and who we are to this day. Matrix Reimprinting can help by subconsciously finding the source of the issue held in your memory, dealing with that memory using EFT techniques and either by reframing the memory, or reducing its impact on you to a negligible or even non existent level thereby freeing you to break the chains of the patterns of behaviour, the fear, the phobia, the trauma from your past in a gentle but extremely effective way. Matrix Reimprinting can work on memories from birth, even the birth itself and in utero. We are not the blank canvas entering the world as a baby, we have already taken on our mother’s and even our father’s emotions and emotional responses by the time we are born.
