I was very pleased to be given the opportunity to give a seminar on Emotional Freedom Technique at my local Pilates Studio.
Somethings really stood out, making it a transformative experience for myself and the participants;
I really saw the power of open-mindedness – when I stepped up to begin my talk, I saw a sceptical audience who gradually became more and more receptive to EFT tapping. I thought and saw that even though they may have had some preconceived notions (and let’s face it EFT doesn’t really fit into any box that we could label “normal behaviour” and does look and sound a little strange at first.), they didn’t let that stop them or limit them from exploring this new technique and experience. The fact that these individuals were willing to give Emotional Freedom Technique a chance really showed me their underlying curiosity and desire for personal growth!
I loved that they were willing to Overcome their Scepticism and give it a try! EFT, with its combination of psychological and physical elements, may appear unconventional to those unfamiliar with it. However, this initial scepticism can serve as a catalyst for profound transformation when approached with an open mind and a willingness to explore new possibilities.
The Value of Personal Experience: As the seminar progressed and we started tapping together, the audience members began to experience the benefits of EFT first-hand. Some people shared that they did feel a release of emotional tension, a sense of relaxation, or even a shift in their perspective towards certain issues. Personal experiences often carry more weight than mere theoretical knowledge, and in this case, they became instrumental in convincing the audience of the value of EFT. We had a lovely and sweet example of a mum with her baby in her arms, who started tapping gently on her baby. The baby immediately relaxed against Mum, giving us the most beautiful smiles!
Empowerment and Self-Awareness: EFT empowers individuals to take control of their emotional well-being. It provides them with a practical tool to address emotional blocks and negative thought patterns. Witnessing the audience recognizes this newfound sense of empowerment and self-awareness was truly gratifying. The realization that we hold the key to their own emotional healing and growth can be a life-changing moment.
Overall, a truly wonderful seminar that really highlighted the importance of open-mindedness, personal experience, empowerment, and the potential for positive change.
If you know of a group of people who you think the Emotional Freedom Technique may benefit, please reach out to me. I am very happy to come and share the technique and the ripple effect of transformation can gradually spread out, fostering a community of individuals achieving emotional healing and personal growth.
