As I promised you yesterday, here is the second part to the article on Energy Psychology. I am an EFT Practitioner (trained by Robert Najemy), and I am also a Reiki Master/Teacher. So, if after reading about energy psychology (EFT in particular) you would be interested in learning more please contact me.

10. The next step is to do something that changes our energy state while we are focused on the particular emotion, disturbance, physical pain or discomfort, desire or belief. This is done in various ways, depending on the particular technique and also the various versions of each technique. Below are some of the possibilities that can be employed alone and also in combination with the others. When any of the below mentioned techniques successfully change our emotional state in relationship to specific stimulus, that then changes how we react emotionally, chemically, hormonally and electronically to that specific situation. This means that our hypothalamus excretes different peptides and our brain creates new neuro-net synapses in relation to the same stimuli, which until now disturbed us. When this is done a number of times, this new more positive perception and reaction become our new norm. Here are some of the ways in which we can change the energy while focused on that, which bothers us.
a. Tapping on specific acupuncture points on the head, face, fingers and upper chest that cause a movement and alteration of the present energy structure we are focused on. The habituated energy structure is forced to change because of the movement in energy caused by the tapping on these specific points. This is used specifically in the methods TFT, EFT, BSFF and WHEE.
b. Placing our hands in a focused way on certain acupuncture points and energy centers also causes energy flow and a change in our energy state and emotions. This is used in the TAT method and can be in the Sedona Method.
c. Moving the eyes to the right and left or tapping on the right and left sides of the body can have the same effect. Used in EFT, EMDR and WHEE.
d. Breathing with a specific focus creates a similar result. (Freeze Frame, Ho'oponopono, Sedona.)
e. Changing our emotional state and heart rhythms by focusing on someone or something we love or feel gratitude towards also creates a change in our energy structure. (Freeze Frame, Ho'oponopono and Sedona.)
f. Bringing to mind or verbally expressing affirmations and alternative perceptions of the stimulus that is disturbing us can also change our state. This can also be done in combination with tapping or rubbing certain points or holding our hands over certain energy centers. (All of the above mentioned systems include this as an alternative.)
g. Simply letting go of what we feel as well as the needs that create our feelings is used in the Sedona Method and Ho'oponopono.
h. Positive visualization of how we would like to be and react towards certain situations can be used in conjunction with any of the above - usually after the emotional disturbance has been reduced or eliminated.
11. The next step for some of these methods is to now, having reduced or eliminated the old energy response, to program a new one. This is called Reprocessing in the EMDR and WHEE methods, and Choices in EFT. It is also used in TAT and Sedona. In this stage we now seek to introduce a new way of perceiving that, which until now was disturbing us. This is the essence of human harmony, maturity and evolution - the ability to allow our perceptions of ourselves, others and life itself change and evolve. With these forms of energy psychology we enable ourselves and our recipients to dissolve the old faulty energy fields so that we are now free to install our new updated version of reality on the hard drive of our mind.
12. Attempts to reprogram the mind solely with analysis and discussion is slow and limited and is much like recording a new song on an old cassette without erasing the previous recorded one. When we play the cassette (the mind chatter) we hear both songs (new and old). With energy psychology we are able to first erase the old songs before we record the new ones.
All of these methods can be combined with each other and all other forms of psychological, mental and spiritual support including analysis, cognitive therapy, behavioral therapy, psychodrama, gestalt, dream analysis, regressions to the past, hypnosis and spiritual study as well as all forms of energy work such as massage, physical therapy, reiki, spiritual healing an reconnection. In addition many thousands of doctors and psychiatrists around the world are now using them in their healing practices, as you can verify at the following internet addresses.
