WHAT IS EFT?
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques. Founder of EFT Gary Craig, explains, “the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.”
We have a physical body, but we also have an energy body and that is where the emotions of the past get stuck. The energy gets blocked in the body and only when you release the frozen energy pattern do you feel lighter and freer.
We cannot just talk about it, it will only increase the stress in the body. We need to go deeper at the level of the body’s energy system and release it..
No matter how long you try and repress, stuff it down, try and be positive like it never happened, the feeling will not go away until you release them with EFT. Talking about something just re- shuffles the stuck energy. EFT will clear the energy and allow healing to take place.
With EFT, you always have a key in your pocket to pull out and use anytime you feel overwhelmed.
what are the 5 personality patterns?
Steven Kessler, my teacher and founder of The 5 Personality Patterns, explains, “much of our suffering is not necessary. It is created by old patterns of feeling and acting that helped us survive the traumas of childhood, but then got stuck in our bodies. These patterns have shaped us so deeply that now we think that’s who we are. But these patterns are not your true self. In fact, they cover up your true self and prevent it from shining out unto the world.”
The problem is that you're caught in patterns of automatic thoughts and feelings and behaviors. They started out as ways to feel safer when you were young, but then got so conditioned into your body that now they control everything, from how you perceive to how you feel to how you behave. In fact, they control your life.
And you're not alone. Everyone's personality has been shaped by a few childhood safety strategies that gradually became so automatic that now they control their whole life. As we grow up, the strategies that we adopted to keep us safe gradually begin to confine and limit us. What once kept us safe becomes our prison cell.
So we live our lives caught in a prison that we don't even know is there. We feel caught somehow, but we can't see what confines us and limits us. We just think “That's how I am.”
But you don't have to stay caught in your prison cell. You don't have to let those unconscious patterns control you for the rest of your life. You can learn about the 5 personality patterns and see which ones are running your life. And you can discover how to get out of your patterns and open up once again to the freedom of being present in the moment.
WHAT IS SHOCK TRAUMA?
Shock Trauma can be explained in many different ways. It can be classified into anything from falling off a bike, getting yelled at to even being raped. Anything you sense that is life threatening. Your body feels it is in danger and you go from feeling calm to scared.
Imagine everything is going wonderful and then something happens and you are in shock. You literally grasp for air and at that moment the energy gets stuck in your body. We work to teach you how to release the trauma in your body, as it doesn’t go away. It will only continue to build. Overtime, it will cause stress and pain to your body.
