EFT For Weight Loss And Body Image
Recently, The Doctor’s daytime T.V. show aired a clip of a woman who went from a size 18 to a size 8 by “thinking herself thin”. Catchy right? Intriguing right? Of course – weight loss is a huge seller. There was a bigger message there that was lost though, so I want to clarify some things about EFT and the way she was able to “think herself thin”.
What they didn’t let her explain is that EFT is an incredible tool for releasing stuck emotions and that was what lead to her transformation. By the looks on their faces, they don’t actually seems to buy that explanation, but let me explain in a way that they didn’t allow her to.
Our bodies store emotions. If you understand that everything is energy in the world, then it isn’t too far of a leap to understand that heavy emotions manifest themselves as weight on the human body. On the vibrational scale of energy, heavy emotions like shame and sadness are the slowest vibrating emotions there are. Whereas, love and joy vibrate very quickly. It is these heavy and slow emotions that get trapped in our energetic systems and cause our bodies to hold on to weight.
This makes absolute and logical sense when you look at people that have lost huge amounts of physical weight (think the scam of The Biggest Loser) and then immediately start putting it back on again. It’s because the emotional cause of the original weight has not been released, and therefore the weight will keep presenting itself until those emotions are resolved.
Enter EFT. When you “tap” on the feelings of unworthiness, shame, sadness, lack of love, trauma etc. it releases those emotions from your energetic system and the weight is released with it. If you listen to what she was trying to convey (are you getting the sense that I am annoyed that they kept interrupting her?), she FEELS better. She FEELS lighter and more energetic and happy. When you don’t need food to deal with those trapped emotions, your body will start to crave the things that make it feel good. Like clean food, like fresh air and sunshine, like laughter.
There are many people who don’t believe in this connection, and the diet industry counts on this as they bank their millions of dollars, but I think all you have to do is talk to anyone who struggles with their weight, and you will clearly see energetic reasons for their body mass. There is no judgement – it is a universal truth to me and a very common understanding from energy workers.
So I am very happy that EFT was given a national stage, but I am disappointed in the superficial focus of this show. I am holding on to the hope that regardless of the catalyst for trying EFT, so many struggling individuals may find some relief and healing because of this clip.
Have a watch to see a true transformation that is way bigger than just her weight.
To your best, happiest and lightest self,
