Popular Trends in Energy Medicine is a work in progress. I am spending every spare minute I can find to get this book done. I call it a sequel to The Encyclopedia of Energy Medicine. While the encyclopedia was an informative book and received awards and rave reviews, it wasn’t what I would call overly friendly. The new book uses simpler language and contains lots of stories to encourage people’s interest and to show the value of energy medicine. What follows is a sample about Official EFT from Popular Trends in Energy Medicine. Please let me know what you think.
“The technique is quite simple. Clients mentally concentrate on a specific issue while stimulating certain acupressure points on the body by tapping on them using the fingertips. Over five thousand years ago the Chinese documented a system of energy circuits that circulate within the body. In English these circuits are called meridians. The goal of the tapping is to remove blockages and restore balance to the meridian system.
According to Craig in his Discovery Statement “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.” EFT does not treat the memory of a trauma, illness or injury. It treats the disruption in the energy system caused by the those events. It is his belief that the disruption in the energy system is the source of all negative emotions (fears, phobias, anger, grief, anxiety, depression, traumatic memories, PTSD, worry, guilt, and limiting emotions in sports, business and the performing arts and more). Vividly reliving a distressing memory may even cause further disruption to the energy system and intensify the situation.
Resolving underlying energetic or emotional contributors often aids in physical healing. “If there is an emotional contributor to the physical problem, what would it be?” is a question often posed by EFT professionals. Tapping on the symptoms of an issue does not solve the problem. The underlying causes of the symptoms present the real problems.”
