EFT or the Emotional Freedom Technique is a tool that can be used to help you reduce stress and promote a positive outlook during your fertility journey. Trying to conceive can be tiring both physically and mentally. It affects your spirit, mind and body. So, I would like to introduce you to a helpful and easy technique based on ancient Chinese medicine.
In theory, it is very similar to acupuncture. In this technique, the various energy points in the body are unlocked by gentle tapping. Either a practitioner can perform the tapping or you can be taught to perform the tapping alone.
How Does EFT Work?
The theory behind this technique is that all negative emotions are caused by a disruption in the body’s energy system. Therefore, by balancing the energy via the same system as used in acupuncture (the meridians), negative emotions are resolved which in turn can mean a change is brought about in the physiological condition of a person, hopefully helping her to conceive. The release of emotions such as fear, worry and sadness gives way to rational and logical thinking. It can also generate feelings of great relief and lightness.
This technique is great for those who have unexplained infertility or are experiencing a lot of stress on their fertility journey. It is one of the many infertility tools that are available to people who are having trouble conceiving. This technique is wonderful because it promotes both fertility and stress reduction at the same time. While the practitioners cannot guarantee conception, EFT has no known negative side effects and the reported success rates for resolving both emotional and physical issues is amazingly high with improvement for up to 95% of people. It is a relatively cheap or free technique that can be applied by a practitioner or on oneself.
How to Apply EFT…
This technique is promoted by a number of natural health advocates like Deepak Chopra and Dr. Mercola. The easiest way to learn how to perform EFT for fertility would be to learn the techniques found in the Overcoming Infertility with EFT eBook.
Basically, there are various points on your head, hands, body and face that you tap as you recite words or phrases related to your issue. Some points exist on both sides of the body, such as the eyebrow points and at the outside of the eyes, and there are some individual points like under your nose and on the chin.
The various points used are found on the outside of your hand below the little finger, the crown on your head, around the eye, under the nose, on the chin, under the collarbone, and below the underarm. However, just tapping the points alone is not enough. With EFT it is also vital to identify the emotion or physical symptom or problem, and focus on this while applying the technique.
Many women are using EFT for fertility and many other parts of their lives. This technique can be applied to anything you are experiencing. I personally use it to get over my fear of flying and it works great! I was able to travel around the world for a year, taking over 23 flights during that adventure. It’s a popular technique because, unlike other methods, it can be used as a self-help technique, can be done anywhere, and often works very quickly.
How Can EFT Help with Fertility Issues?
Anyone who has been trying for a baby for some time knows all about the roller coaster of emotions involved. Common emotions include jealousy, anxiety, panic, fear, worry, and guilt. And although you know that stress can further block your attempts at conception, it’s so difficult to switch off these emotions, especially when you get a negative pregnancy test, or your period shows up.
EFT is also a highly effective technique at removing psychological blocks to conception. Past traumas, memories, beliefs about pregnancy, birth, and parenthood, can all affect how you truly feel about having a baby. You may feel ready to be a parent, but are there any hidden blocks that are stopping you from conceiving? EFT helps you identify and resolve these blocks, and move you towards having your baby.
