Tapping (EFT) is a profound discovery that enables all of us, to “Tap” into our energy systems and direct our mind/nervous systems to HALT the fight or flight response and reprogram it to act and react differently. This survival response comes into play anytime you have a stressful experience. We are all the sum of our experiences and those experiences are recorded in a cellular and limbic system store house where they are encoded. It’s why we can have a terrible reaction or response to a seemingly benign encounter (such as a dog approaching us) and not understand where that reaction is coming from. Scientists have discovered that the start of the stress response happens in the amygdala, a tiny almond-shaped component of the limbic system. The amygdala is the “smoke detector” of the body. It signals the brain if it perceives a threat. An earlier encounter with a dog when you are small and felt afraid or threatened can program your response today. Research at Harvard Medical School over the past decade has shown that stimulation of select meridian points decreases the activity in the amygdala, the hippocampus and other parts of the brain associated with fear. They have also done studies with the hormone cortisol and found that tapping drops the stress hormone cortisol by an average of 24-50%! Reduced cortisol levels translates to reduced symptoms of stress, fear and anxiety. The bottom line is YOU can change your brain!
I have also found that the use of essential oils in conjunction with tapping has an even greater response to the limbic system. Want to know more?
