Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)

For some time I have been following the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) movement – an healing modality that utilizes the energy field of the body to address blocked aspects and contribute to emotional and physical pain and suffering. Believing that EFT is complementary to Christian spiritual traditions and pastoral practice I bit the bullet, jumped off the ledge and began training as an EFT practitioner. I have just completed level one training.

So many of the convictions about mind/body/spirit in EFT are already held in the ancient faiths of the great religious traditions. What EFT does is provide a very practical use of these insights and realities. I have been inspired by the way in which great progress is made around modifying pain, emotional duress, physical health and spiritual struggle. As a practicing pastor I am already adding it to my “toolkit” of resources.

During the past few days I not only found the benefits of EFT for myself but witnessed the rapid way in which people made concrete progress. It is strikingly different that conventional counseling approaches. And it provides a method that the person may continue to use on their own.

There are many things for which we may be thankful at this time of year. EFT is one more for me!
