Releasing the Past

We know that working on specific events is the most effective and thorough way to get results with EFT. If something is bothering you in the present it is highly likely that there are specific events from your past that you need to clear. Working with EFT is a very effective and gentle way of releasing yourself from the burden of your past.

Release past
Release your past

You could have current beliefs that you formed as a child that no longer serve you. For example, you wouldn’t ask an 8-year-old for advice on money but you probably have beliefs about money that were formed when you were that age or even younger. You might have grown up in a household where money was tight and you learned things like “money is hard to come by” or “rich people are greedy” etc.

So next time something is bothering you, ask yourself what it reminds you of. Try to recall some times in the past when you felt the same way or similar events happened. Then use the Movie technique or tell the story to clear out those old events and release your past. Once you’ve cleared these specific events from your past you will find the present situation no longer bothers you. If it still does, do some more digging and see if there are other past events you need to clear or do some tapping on your current situation.

EFT is a wonderful tool to help us release our past and get rid of beliefs that no longer serve us.

“You have to know the past to understand the present.” —  Dr. Carl Sagan

World Mental Health Day

It was World Mental Health Day yesterday, 10th October. I was tweeting and posting on my Facebook page about it. I thought I’d write a blog post too, to help raise awareness.

There is still a lot of stigma attached to mental health issues, yet 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year (1).

For many people they are too scared of admitting a problem for fear of the consequences (e.g. at work) or the lack of understanding (“just pull yourself together” – it only it was that easy!).

So please, know that you are not alone.

There is plenty of help available.

It will get better if you seek and are willing to accept help.

In the first instance, it is advisable to contact your GP. They can diagnose and advise.

EFT is very effective at helping with stress and anxiety and even depression.

The more we talk about it the less stigma there will be! I used EFT to help me overcome my anxiety. I use it to help me manage my stress levels. I use it daily for my physical, emotional and mental well-being. I wouldn’t be without this incredible tool now.

Depression Awareness Week

It is Depression Awareness Week this week (15th – 21st April 2013). You can find out more at

Depression Awareness Week

I find it sad that in this day and age depression is still a taboo subject for many. Many people just don’t understand depression and cannot empathize with those who are depressed. If you break your leg people can understand that and see that your body needs time to heal itself. With depression there is often no outward sign and many people don’t want to talk about it for fear of being labeled, misunderstood or ridiculed.

Those suffering from depression cannot just “pull themselves together” or “snap out of it” (as much as they’d like to be able to). The Depression Alliance offers some great advice about what things you can say and do to help people with depression.  If you think you may be depressed yourself, there is great advice about where to get help.

Many things can help with depression e.g. diet, exercise and relaxation as well as antidepressant medication (as prescribed by your Doctor). EFT can help with depression. It is best to work with a practitioner with issues like depression as it can be difficult working by yourself. If you are on medication your practitioner should advise you to continue taking it and refer to your Doctor if you want to make any changes.

Depression Up

It was reported this week that depression rates are up in the UK by 40% since 2007. Wow! More and more people are turning to antidepressants, many of which have side effects.

Antidepressants can help you feel better initially but often the effect wears off and the dosage needs to be increased. Whilst I am not anti antidepressants per say, they do not address the underlying issues. This is where EFT can help. Working with an experienced practitioner is highly recommended for issues like depression. With help you can discover the underlying issues and work through them to create lasting changes.

EFT as a technique is always there for you when you need it, so it is perfect to use by yourself at home in between sessions with your practitioner. There is a great article about ways of helping tackle depression by Dr. Mercola. He recommends among other things exercise (important for boosting your endorphins), diet and getting enough sunshine (for Vitamin D levels).

If you are suffering from depression, do get help. It doesn’t have to be a journey you do alone.
