Live interview with Dr. Z (click her name)
August's Guest Speaker was the amazing Dr. Lynne Zimmerman. Our class was on "Heal Your Broken Heart" with EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). Children, as well as adults, experience a broken heart by our feelings getting hurt and sometimes feel that they don't have the power to change it. However, they do. Dr. Lynne introduced the Emotional Freedom Technique, reffered to as Tapping, to help our class release these pent-up feelings and change our vibrational frequency. Think of a satellite dish moving at a small degree, which may seem slight or like nothing. However, the frequency or ripple going out effects a greater degree, almost infinite.
EFT is an easy way to feel calmer and relaxed in a short amount of time. It is not costly and provides quick results in a matter of a few breaths. The one thing I really admired about this stress reducing exercise is you can do it anywhere, even in public, without others knowing that your on a verge of an emotional outbreak. Using your fingers to tap pressure points in the face, body or hand has been my savior during rough days at work. For children, it is fun especially when they do the underarm technique - tapping right under your armpits like a monkey.
Below, I have enclosed some interesting facts about EFT supplied by Dr. Z. Her classes always draw a great interest and I notice everyone leaves feeling lighter and happier. So, give it try! Teach your child or yourself a new tool to release your suffering and burdens. You will thank yourself later for it!
Some interesting facts of EFT or Tapping:
Reduces cortisol levels by 24% in just one session. Cortisol is a steroid hormone released by the adrenal glands when one experiences stress or low blood-glucose concentration.
Helps us to feel calm by connecting us with our inner self, our voice of wisdom.
Aids in stabilizing our heart; creating a smooth heart rhythm.
Calms the fear center in the brain. When the fear center is quiet, then the healing and helping systems in our body, in every cell of our body and our brain can go to work, helping us to feel better, calmer, happier, more like our True Self.
Assist us to see deeper answers for what’s bothering us.
