The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system. For instant, when you feel fear, phobias, anger, grief, anxiety, depression, traumatic memories, trauma, worry, guilt and all limiting emotions in sport, business and the performing arts, the energy flowing through your stomach meridian are disrupted. That energy imbalance is what causing emotional intensity, not the experience itself. In other words, unwanted emotions are caused by energy disruption. Tapping under the eyes etc. (meridian points) sent pulses through the meridian and fixes the disruption.
EFT addresses the true cause – a disruption in the body’s energy system. The client has not to relive all those horrid details of emotional, painful memories. These memories may contribute to an unwanted emotion, but they are not the direct cause. With EFT, there is relatively little emotional suffering involved. It is relatively painless. The client briefly recall’s the problem, but that’s all. No energy disruption – no negative emotions. That is why some people are bothered by their memories and others are not. The difference is, that some people have a tendency for their energy systems to become imbalanced under such a memory, while others do not.
