What is Dream Coaching?

“Your Dreams Matter… It’s Time to Make Your Dreams Come True!”

A dream is a wish that your heart makes, and then at times your head wants to take away from you, and do all that it can to remind you that it can’t be a reality. Does that sound familiar to you? If so, please keep reading. This is for you…I believe making your dreams come true and living a life filled with purpose and passion is your birthright, and I know that living the life of your dreams takes support, planning, and action steps. I also know that achieving the life of your dreams is a journey and at times can definitely be challenging. That is why I am prepared to support you through this journey and provide you with the proper tools to work through the obstacles, excuses, voices, or any other form of resistance that will appear along the way.

I know how it feels to be so bogged down by your inner critic that you feel completely paralyzed, and willing to do whatever you can to quiet your true inner calling and come up with every excuse in the book for not following through on a dream. However, with that said if you truly desire something in life, and are willing to do the work to manifest your dream life that I know is possible. Then taking the action steps toward achieving your dreams puts you within the realm of miracles where all dreams are possible. Where I have had the privilege and have done the work to experience a dream come true. I ask you to take this step forward and believe in your self and know truly know, that you are worthy to have all that you want in life. A dream that is ignored and never explored is like a letter, or part of you that will forever be left unopened.

So, what has not listening to your truth, and not following the whisper of your essence, of your soul’s yearning cost you? It cost me a lot of energy, time, and self-sabotage trying to ignore, numb out, and live a life that wasn’t on purpose or filled with passion. Life is too short not to be true to you and the unique gifts you were meant to find, hone, and then share with the world. Ultimately, when we are living our lives being in integrity with our true desires and radiating from our true spirit and essence we are in our most glorious and beautiful light. Now is the time to truly heal from the heart and radiate the best version of you because there is no one else in the world like you. If you are truly ready to transform your life and be supported in a safe, sacred, and compassionate space to propel you into taking back your power and the beautiful being you were created to be. I ask you to embark on this transformational journey of reclaiming your soul’s dream, and radiating in your inner and outer beauty.

What is an Ocean Cleanse, Negative Ion Foot Bath?

It is a self-contained, high-tech water detoxification treatment that enables the body to heal itself. It is a detox, water, foot bath that uses brass and stainless steel electrodes to cleanse, balance and the enhance the bio-energy (the vital energy force present in the breath of bodily fluids). This energy is the electro-magnetic force that is stored within the body and utilized by our cells.

Within Chinese medicine this energy is referred to as, “chi.” During this 30 minute negative ion foot bath the complex energy fields permeate and realign the body’s energy field while improving oxygen levels. This particular foot bath treatment is widely used to increase energy, (both physical and mental) vitality, and stamina, at the same time it purges (detoxifies) the body of toxins, chemicals, radiation, pollution, synthetics, and other foreign material trapped in the skin layers that have clogged up the body’s systems of elimination.

This detox, water, foot bath creates the correct frequency required for the cells to return to a healthy state, and to release waste that has been bonded to them over the years.

What are some of the benefits from an Ocean Cleanse, Negative Ion Foot Detox?
Most people should immediately experience an increased sense of well being and more energy. Approximately 95% of people in this culture experience a state of acidity; this is, their bodies contain an excess of hydrogen ions, and their blood pH is lower than 7.45. These people will greatly benefit from exposure to high concentrations of negatively charged ions. The ionic technique of cleansing thru the feet provides a full body purge for all vital organs, resulting in reduced: menopause symptoms, menstrual cramps, sexual health problems, wrinkles, acne & other skin problems, sleep problems, inflammation, body fluid retention, restlessness, stress, toothaches, vaginal dryness, candida, yeast infections, pain relief, headaches, gout and arthritis.

This internal cleansing process also results in faster disease healing and injury recovery as well as: providing a liver detoxification, purging of heavy metals, increase in energy, improved memory and sleep, kidney and parasite cleanse, enhanced immune system, greater bladder control, and a more balanced pH.

In today’s somewhat toxic environment, tissue acid wastes, chemical and heavy metal residues build up in the body faster than ever before, resulting in a greater incidence of allergies, and mental and physical incapacitation. Therefore, we have begun to hear more about herbal and homeopathic detoxification systems and programs by alternative health practitioners as a way of reducing symptomology and maintaining health. All healing traditions-Egyptian, Native American, Ayurvedic, Homeopathic, Chinese, Shamanic- except Western Medicine offer body purification as a means of healing and avoiding disease.

The Ocean Cleanse Foot Detox in combination with a healthy, low-stress lifestyle, provides a thorough and efficient way to maintain high energy levels and long term wellness.

How an Ocean Cleanse, Negative Ion Foot Detox Works within the Body
As believed in Reflexology, each foot is actually a channel, a conduit, through which your body attempts to cleanse itself of toxic wastes and heavy metals that are building up in many parts of your body. Ions are atoms or molecules that have lost or gained electrons (free radicals are unpaired electrons).

If the atoms or molecules lose electrons, they become positively charged ions, or acidic in nature. If they gain electrons, they become negatively charged ions, alkaline in nature. A water molecule is composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. When the molecule loses a hydrogen atom becoming a positive charge, the remaining OH molecule gains an electron therefore giving it a negative charge.

As you walk along the beach, your body absorbs millions of these negatively charged ions, which in turn alkalize the blood and tissue and leave you feeling invigorated and tranquil, similar to the effects of a foot detox. Therefore, a positive polarity generates a negative flow which, is believed to raise blood PH from acidic toward alkaline, one of the biggest benefits of this treatment. Studies show that an overall balancing effect occurs, along with a significant increase in the number of negative ions during the foot detox. Due to poor diets and high stress levels we tend to accumulate and store excessive quantities of waste products, such as: diabetic, lactic, pyruvic, uric, carbonic, acetic, butyric, and hepatic acids.

Thus avoiding disease and maintaining vitality, as we age, requires the maintenance of an alkaline environment throughout the body, which can be challenging at times in our high-tech, high-stress, at times toxic society, and the truth is we all don’t take a walk on the beach everyday. Therefore, we are not absorbing millions of negatively charged ions on a regular basis, and that is why a foot detox session can be very beneficial.

What to Expect During and After an Ocean Cleanse, Negative Ion Foot Detox
During the foot bath, you will actually see the cleansing process taking place as the water interacts with a compound electric current and magnetic field structure. The Ocean cleanse creates the same environment as the walk along the beach, only more powerfully because your feet are in direct contact with the ions being manufactured in the water. After the pretreatment consultation, you place your feet in the water.

The unit is turned on and within seconds millions of ions enter your body and begin to neutralize these tissue acid wastes. The particles, fat, and mucous residues found in the water after soaking reflect the wastes that have exited the body during the 30 minute session. Throughout the cleanse you will notice color changes in the water as toxins are being removed. The water color can range from yellow-green, orange, brown, black, to dark green; you may even notice white foam or white cheese-like particles floating on the water’s surface, and/or black or red flecks resting at the bottom of the foot basin.The color and texture indicates which organs or body systems are releasing toxins.

The particles, fat and mucous residues found in the water reflect the wastes that have left your body. (Most of this color is due to the toxin particles that are drawn out through the pores of the feet. However, some is from the leaching of the metal from the array and from the amount of sediment in the water.) On completion of the treatment, the feet are removed and rinsed and generally you feel very peaceful and relaxed.

Individuals who Should Not Use the Machine
The Ocean Cleanse should not be used by individuals who are Epileptic or Hemophiliac, or those with a pacemaker or any other battery-operated or electrical implant/organ, or those who are on blood thinners or any other type of heartbeat regulating medication. It should not be used by children under the age of 6, or during pregnancy and while breast feeding. Persons with having an organ removed, especially the colon or Persons taking a medication, the absence of which would mentally or physically incapacitate them (ex:psychotic episodes, seizures etc.)

What is a 30% AHA Pumpkin, Chemical Peel?

This is a superficial chemical peel and is the mildest of the peel formulas.

Superficial chemical peels remove skin through a portion, or all of the epidermal layers. These are considered the “refreshing” forms of skin peels. This particular chemical peel contains a 30% formulation of pumpkin (nature’s source for healthy, hydrated, and radiant skin), Glycolic and Lactic Acid, (also known as milk acid) White Willow Bark (a chamomile & yarrow derived extraction) and contains an approximate pH of 3.2.

This treatment is formulated to provide deep exfoliation to the facial area, allowing acids to effortlessly penetrate clogged pores by successfully destroying surface bacteria and oil, while assisting in cell proliferation. The oil from pumpkin seeds is uniquely beneficial for the skin. This type of superficial chemical peel is great for the treatment of fine wrinkles, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne.

Which Skin Types/Conditions can Benefit from a 30% AHA Pumpkin, Chemical Peel?
Many skin types and conditions can benefit from this treatment with its perfect combination of pumpkin and gentle, yet effective AHA. Pumpkin being so rich in essential fatty acids along with the perfect blend of AHA assist in improving the symptoms of oiliness by regulating proper, sebum (oil) production, making it beneficial for both oily/acne-prone skin and dry skin.

Pumpkin seeds are also a rich source of minerals, particularly zinc, which is a great antioxidant and skin healer. So, individuals with acne will benefit from this peels balancing and healing properties, as well as people with aging, mature, or dry skin will see a change due to its ability to promote healthy cell structure and cellular renewal. Individuals with a normal skin type will also enjoy and benefit from this peels gentle, nourishing qualities.

A series of treatments can also help with: reducing the appearance of very mild, blotchy skin discoloration, help lighten hyper-pigmentation, remnant acne discoloration, reduce the appearance of mild scarring, provide a thorough, deep cleansing of the pores and reduction of stubborn blackheads, softening and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and correcting the effects of sun damage.

How a H2t 30% AHA Pumpkin, Chemical Peel Works?
Acid peels are chemical treatments that are applied to the skin’s surface that then eat away at the exterior layer of skin cells, which are dead and appear dull. Often replacing the need for mechanical scrubs. All chemical peeling agents have a “keratolytic” action, meaning that the uppermost layer of the skin, called the epidermis, is removed. This stimulates the production of new epidermal cells which help to improve skin texture and color.

Pumpkin is the perfect ingredient because it contains enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and gentle acids that help to safely and easily remove the dead layer of skin from the face while rejuvenating and revealing the healthy, glowing skin underneath.

At our skin’s prime, the process of epidermal turnover, where older skin cells die off and new ones make their way up to the surface of the epidermis to replace the older ones can take as long as one month depending on the condition of one’s skin. However, as we age that process can be twice as long. However, the important elements found within pumpkin assist in this cellular rejuvenation process and in turn can strengthen weakened skin structures. This is especially important for aging or damaged skin, that does not renew itself as effectively and easily as our younger skin once did. So, in order to restore the process of natural exfoliation, we can use enzymes and gentle acids like those found in this pumpkin peel.

Removal of the top layer of dead skin cells proves to be very beneficial for many skin types and conditions. Providing for the perfect extraction opportunity if necessary. This particular peel can be used as an individual treatment, or in conjunction with other facial treatments such as microdermabrasion. It can also be used to pre-condition the skin for more aggressive treatment peels.

By using an acid peel you are tapping into your body’s own natural ability to replenish and refresh skin cells while binding moisture, antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients to the skin. This allows the fresh new skin cells below the surface to brighten up the skin’s appearance.

What to expect during & after a 30% AHA Pumpkin, Chemical Peel
The chemical peeling agent is applied to your skin and is left on for 5-10 minutes depending on your skin type and condition, and remains there until it is neutralized. This is the step that exfoliates and stimulates the skin. Within the first minute or two this peel may cause stinging, skin redness, mild skin irritation, and dryness. Due to the fact that this peel is more superficial than other, deeper peels, there is little to no downtime and you will notice immediate results.

It is important to properly moisture your face after a chemical peel. The top layer of the skin is typically protective and the bottom layer is exposed prematurely after a peel. Apply high-quality moisturizers, a broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF, and products to your skin because your skin will be more absorbent and susceptible after a peel. If your skin was dry or dehydrated prior to the treatment you may experience some flaking skin in the days to follow. As you shed the top layer of the skin, you also reveal dirt and bacteria that is buried into the deeper layers of the skin.

Although chemical peels due alleviate acne, excess oil, and reduce blackheads, these will also be brought to the surface first as they are purged from your skin and some individuals may experience their acne and congestion come to the surface two or three days after the treatment. If that is the cause a mud/clay masque can be applied to absorb and treat the excess oil and breakouts. In the days to follow your skin will feel and look beautiful guaranteed.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-chemical, non-invasive skin care treatment that offers safe and controlled results. This skin resurfacing treatment works by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells in order to rejuvenate the skin and reveal the fresher, younger cells beneath.

Over time, this repeated process stimulates the production of a new layer of skin cells, bringing with it an increased level of collagen and elastin, improving the skin’s appearance. These treatments remove damaged and unbalanced skin while they activate new cell growth. By removing dead skin cells and impurities, the skins texture and appearance will improve.

Which Skin Types/Conditions can Benefit from Microdermabrasion Treatments?
Microdermabrasion treatments improve and treat: aging and sun damaged skin, altered pigmentation, superficial lines & wrinkles, skin tone/texture & vitality, enlarged, or oily, clogged pores, blackheads, whiteheads, mild-moderate acne, acne scarred & blemished skin, pre & post-op to laser surgery.

Microdermabrasion treatments are most effective when purchased in a series; however, a noticeable improvement is seen after one treatment. Microdermabrasion works well with other skin care treatments and is usually part of an holistic skin care program designed specifically for your skin type and lifestyle needs.

Another benefit of the Imagederm Microdermabrasion treatment is within the tubular hand piece, there is LED (light-emitting-diodes) technology. So, it is like getting two treatments in one because LED technology is a painless, even relaxing skin-care treatment that plumps up aging skin by boosting collagen production and treats mild to moderate acne.

LED treatments are sometimes also called LED light therapy. First developed by NASA, LED work by sending energy-producing packets of light into the deeper layers of the skin. Red light LED stimulates the fibroblasts that produce collagen, which gives young skin its plump look. Professional LED machines assist in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, treating sun-damage, and reducing redness after more aggressive IPL or laser treatments. The results won’t be as dramatic or long term as plastic surgery, IPL or laser, but it’s a gentler, more natural, less expensive way to go. Blue light LED works by killing the bacteria deep in the skin that is responsible for acne.

What to Expect After a Microdermabrasion Treatment:
Most patients find the microdermabrasion treatment to be quite relaxing. This gentle, non-abrasive technique provides satisfying results with no downtime. Some clients may notice a tightening, tingling sensation, or immediate redness to the skin which usually disappears shortly after the treatment. Also, after a few days a light flaking of the skin may be noticeable, so a good moisturizer is helpful after the treatment and a broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF is a must.

The benefits of your microdermabrasion treatment will be noticeable after your first session, as your skin will feel smoother and softer. Your improvements will continue to progress throughout the course of your treatment program. Microdermabrasion treatments work synergistically with Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).

5 Steps to Thoroughly & Soulfully Cleansing your face …

As a make-up artist and Esthetician I am privileged to be up close and personal with women of all age groups and ethnic backgrounds. When prepping the face for a make over or when getting a client situated for a facial, the universal complaints and common issues I encounter the most are clogged, enlarged pores, black heads and fine lines.

Time and time again I have women asking me, “What can I do to diminish my pore size and get rid of these black heads and the wrinkles that are appearing on my face?” My first response is, “tell me about your beauty regimen, specifically tell me how you cleanse you face.” The responses I get are always very interesting to say the least. Let’s just say the problems are universal, but the ways in which people define and actually cleanse their faces are very diverse.

This is why I always feel the need to ask this question and to provide my insight on the importance of properly and thoroughly cleansing your face. I personally feel the cleansing process is one of the most important steps in anyone’s beauty regimen. I believe you have to thoroughly cleanse in order to maintain glowing, radiant skin and to prolong the aging process.

We encounter so many toxins and pollutants throughout the day from the environment and from some of the make-up and products that we wear, combined with the natural oils and sebum your skin produces. So, not properly cleansing that build up off daily with an effective and diligent regimen can really effect every aspect of your skin’s basic health and needs. The five steps are as follows:

  1. Finding the right cleanser

    The first step is finding the just right cleanser for you, and that is another blog in itself. So, please stay tuned for “Finding the Right Cleanser for your Skin Type.” Therefore, I will keep it concise and to the point here. Depending on your skin type and condition you want to look for active ingredients specifically targeted to meet your exact needs. For example, an oily skin type doesn’t want to use a moisturizing cleanser that is made for dry/dehydrated skin.

    Just like a dry/dehydrated skin type would not want to use a cleanser that contains active ingredients that are going to purify and create a mattifying feel and look to the skin. With that said, let me list some of the ingredients I believe should be avoided in your cleanser and can be drying agents or can end up irritating your skin.

    Some of the ingredients I avoid are: Sodium Lauryl Sulfates, artificial colorings, parfum and anything in the paraben family. A lot of people are finally realizing that some of the ingredients within a cleanser alone, can be causing unnecessary issues with their skin. Remember different skin types will require different active ingredients within the cleanser you chose. Also, my philosophy always leans toward chemical free and natural products.

  2. Prepping the skin for the cleansing process

    Cleansing the face to unclog pores and to prevent the enlarging of pore size and fine lines doesn’t constitute the ‘removing make-up properly’ part of cleansing your face. This is another common over site I see and hear over and over again.

    There are always two steps to the cleansing process, if you wear make-up. The first step is to always remove the eye area make-up and facial make-up prior to the cleansing process and these steps can be seen in my “5 Daily Steps to Achieving Radiant, Glowing Skin while Prolonging the Aging Process video.”

    So, assuming that you have a nice clear and clean face to cleanse this is where the fun begins. Allow 3 minutes for this entire process. Make sure you have you hair out of your face with a head band in order to be able to access your hair line. Very important, make sure you have clean hands. Next, use warm water and wet your entire face and if possible extend this to reach onto your neck and decolletage.

    Then distribute the cleanser into the palms of your hands and rub them together in order to activate the ingredients in your cleanser. I prefer to use my hands, especially my fingertips when washing my face. Washcloths can be too abrasive, can be carrying drying agents from detergents and unless you wash them after each use, harbor bacteria.

    I do recommend the Clarisonic if you are dedicated to cleaning it after each cleanse and replacing the brush as recommended.

  3. The actual cleansing process

    This is where the fun begins, and it is all about perspective. We can get so busy in just our daily life routines. So, all the things that us women would like to do in order to keep ourselves feeling beautiful and pampered at times can feel tedious and overwhelming, especially when we have other demands aside from ourselves, and most of us certainly do.

    So, I have turned this 2 minute process into a time for me to check in with myself, and to affirm the goodness within my day and my life. Therefore, incorporating in part of my daily spiritual practice to the often tedious chore of cleansing my face. Also, have you ever noticed that when you are cleansing your face and you are up close and personal with yourself, it can be a time when you may be the hardest on yourself. I know for myself it can be….

    At times, especially if I am tired, my ego can take over and I will catch myself saying and thinking negative things about myself while I tend to point out my flaws. Well, I have come to realize that it is just as important to clear the pores, prevent blackheads and fine lines as it is to clear the negative self-talk and prevent negative spiraling. We can be too hard on ourselves.

    As women we are very talented at multi-tasking so why not multi-task as we cleanse our faces and take the time to love, appreciate, and be gentle with ourselves. Days are so busy and it can be challenging to make time for all the things we want and should do for ourselves.

    So, if you can cleanse internally and externally in a total of 3 minutes, why not begin to use this time to make the internal shift to loving and affirming ourselves and our unique beauty. Straight from the mouth of the wonderful Dr. Wayne Dyer, “When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.”

    I start by rubbing the cleanser all over my face and extending it down to my neck and decolletage. With the pointer, middle, and ring fingertips and at times my entire hand, I rub the cleanser into each area using enough pressure to really work the cleanser into the skin, but not so much as to stretch, pull or irritate the area. ( I break this routine into 4 parts spending about 3o seconds on each:

    1. neck/decolletage,
    2. chin/lip area extend out,
    3. nose/t-zone extend out to cheeks and under & around eyes,
    4. forehead up to the hairline. You will come up with your own routine and what feels good to you.)

    First, I start at the neck and decolletage and then I move to the chin. Targeting the area on the chin and then moving to the crease between your chin and up to your lips and around the lip area and out to the ears. Simultaneously, I list 5 things that I am thankful for, and it can be anything that feels right for you in that moment: my health, the fact that I have water to wash my face, my family, the sun, something great that happened during the day, it can be anything.

    I dip my fingertips back into the water to activate the cleanser again and make sure I have enough water to allow the cleanser to slide and do its thing. I then move to the nose and t-zone area and really work it out because this is usually the area where the black heads love to grow and hang out, which in turn causes the pores to enlarge and be more noticeable. I move out to the cheeks and mid ears and circle the eye area.

    This is the time when I list 5 things that I am proud of myself for, they can be things that happened in your present day or things that happened in your past. It could sound something like this: I am proud of myself for not having seconds at dinner when I really wanted to; I am proud of myself for not overreacting to my husband when he asked me the same thing 3x’s today; I am proud of myself for getting to the gym today; I am proud of myself for getting my master’s degree; I am proud of myself for washing my face; are you catching my drift??? It can be anything.

    Next, I move to my forehead and hairline revisiting some water to reactivate the cleanser. I also like to revisit each area I covered just to rehydrate it and prevent it from feeling dried out. Also, a good cleanser will continue to cleanse while it is just sitting on your skin. This is the last section of the cleansing process and the time when I list 5 things that I will intend on working on being or doing better in the days that follow.

    This isn’t a time to be hard on oneself, it is a time to set an intention and to be extra loving and gentle by envisioning the things that will serve and make you feel better. Some examples are: I am going to bed earlier tonight, I am going to move my body for 20 minutes tomorrow, I am going to call my Mom to just say “Hello!”, I will only hit my snooze button 1 time tomorrow, I will cleanse my face for 3 minutes tomorrow.

  4. After you have cleansed and loved on yourself for 2 minutes, rinse the entire area you cleansed with warm water making sure you remove all of the cleanser. When you are sure all of the cleanser is removed you can complete the process with a nice splash of cooler water to close the pores and refresh the skin, and finally wash away all the dirt, debris, negativity and non-serving thoughts and say, “a bye-bye!”

  5. Then pat your face off with a towel and apply your anti-oxidant and anti-aging serums or moisturizers. Tell yourself and your beautifully cleansed face, “I love you _______,!” 5x’s…… I guarantee you and your skin will look and feel beautiful!

Come for beauty but leave with some soul and centeredness.

So BE Beautiful Now, because you already are!!!!!!!!

What is EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) / Tapping

“I see EFT as a method that stimulates the body’s electrical meridian system enabling a release of stuck patterns of emotions, beliefs and behaviors.”
By EFT Founder, Gary Craig.

EFT has been a remarkable healing tool for me personally. After years of soul searching and seeking help for persistent anxiety, limiting and negative beliefs, low self-worth/self-love, and a very loud and demanding inner critic. I have embarked on just about every journey to happiness and well-being. The strong decision to end the torment in my mind and to lessen the negative impact of earlier and negative situations that occurred in my life propelled me into: counseling, therapy, working with physics, energy healers, attending several personal growth seminars and reading numerous self-help books; you name it I have done it, or would be open to try it.

I have definitely benefited from all the time, effort, and money I have invested toward my personal growth and emotional freedom. However, not to long ago at my inner critic’s climax and when the disappointments of life hit me pretty hard. Feeling like I had the rug pulled from under my feet and I couldn’t seem to find relief. I was divinely guided to EFT/Tapping. The rest is history.

I got such great results and finally found a healing tool that had such great impact in supporting me in my personal struggles that I knew I needed to bring this remarkable healing tool to others. EFT can calm down and neutralize the anxious wanderings of the mind, that really like to distract us, lock us in procrastination and unhappiness, causing us to fret about the past and saturate us with fear about things in the future that may or may not even happen.

The beautiful thing about EFT is it can help turn down the volume of all this monkey mind chatter as well as soften grudges, taking away the need to blame other people or past experiences for our present circumstances. When you can get to the core of your emotional challenges and negative feelings and are ready to face them and name them, EFT/Tapping will assist you in ultimately clearing them. Then the universal law of attraction is ready to bless you with miracles and the dreams of the beautiful life you wish to create and deserve.

What is EFT(Emotional Freedom Technique)/Tapping
Emotional Freedom Technique was developed by Gary Craig and is based on the “Thought Field Therapy” of Roger Callahan. EFT is a healing tool that is used to clear any type of emotional conflict in our minds and in our bodies. It is a stress relief technique that combines modern psychology with some of the principles and theories from the ancient practice of Chinese Acupuncture.

It is referred to as Tapping because you are actually tapping with your finger tips on the acupuncture points that are located on the meridians on your face and your body while you are tuned into a problem that is bothering you and that you want to clear. Focusing on the problem sets up a disruption in the meridian system that is then cleared by the Tapping. Tapping can allow you to gain insight into how your mind and emotions influence your health, your energy, your vitality and ultimately your longevity.

Why Tap?
EFT Tapping PointsTapping gives you the power to learn from your emotions and be empowered by them, instead of being victimized by your emotions. It also allows you to really pin point what is happening when we are not feeling in flow, or not feeling very good about ourselves. When we are in this state of disharmony we generally just sort of stay there, feeling stuck, stressed, make a decision to check out, or just remain in a state of fear where or body begins to produce Cortisol (A stress hormone from the endocrine gland), which results in our “fight or flight” responses. As a result, and over time, this energy disruption can manifest in the form of physical pain, illness, or disease.

Chronic illness can also be caused by prolonged stress, so it is very important that we have the ability to manage it. When we are in stress mode, in that “fight or flight” reaction, we do what our subconscious minds tells us to in order to survive or be safe, again, all based on past events or experiences (usually between the ages of birth to 6 years old) when we developed our internal thoughts and feelings about ourselves and the world, all based on these experiences. EFT provides us with a powerful tool that allows us to access those subconscious beliefs, release the negative emotions they hold, and replace them with our desired state of being or belief that will bring about the change we want.

How EFT/Tapping Works
Gary Craig believes “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system”. So, the primary function of EFT is to release the disruptions in the energy systems by tapping on specific acupuncture points. When we deal with the stuck or conflicted emotions that show up in our life we provide relief and relaxation to the mind and the body.

With the Tapping procedure we get to the core place that we develop and hold emotional or physical symptoms which are in our energy systems. With Tapping we are clearing the core of the problem at an energetic level. So, Tapping clears the core of the problem, and that is why it can be used for a variety of issues.

New science and research is showing that the Amygdala, a small little part of the brain, which is basically our smoke alarm and has been shown to play a key role in the processing of our emotions. The Amygdala gets activated whenever we think or talk about a problem that we are really upset about. That is why when we are Tapping we must think about the problem so we can tap and relief it.

Research studies are showing that stimulating the Acupressure points that we use while Tapping calms down the center of the brain when we are thinking of something upsetting. So, it actually interrupts that typical reaction that we have that we refer to as the fight or flight mechanism that is built into our wiring. That is why some people refer to Tapping as a form of rewiring of the brain because you know longer have these dramatic reactions to a memory of a past event that use to be upsetting for you. So, Tapping seems to reprogram how the brain and body act and react.

Issues EFT/Tapping Can Address:
“Properly done, this frequently reduces the therapeutic process from months or years down to hours or minutes. And, since emotional stress can contribute to pain, disease and physical ailments, we often find that EFT provides astonishing physical relief.” Gary Craig

Tapping works extremely well for any type of emotional stress and often works where nothing else will, producing rapid, gentle, and long lasting results and no drugs are equipment are needed. Since emotions impact every area of our life Tapping helps with many emotions:

  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Anger and Frustration
  • Depression
  • All kinds of Fears and Phobias
  • Negative/Painful Memories and Inner Child Issues
  • Self-Doubt, Low Self-Worth, Love Pain
