Tired After EFT?

Apr 14, 2008
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a form of energy self-help pioneered by Gary Craig, a Stanford engineer. By tapping on the end-points of different energy meridians in the body, we can bring relief from physical and emotional complaints. Although EFT is a new therapy, the acupressure points it uses were discovered by the Chinese thousands of years ago.

In practice, those who get results from EFT working themselves or with a therapist will sometimes experience tiredness, fatigue, dehydration, and other symptoms after a particularly intense or heavy session. Without knowing what these mean, it can be scary to move emotionally into such symptoms so fast.

We can understand what's really going on here if we combine some information from Meta-Medicine® and EFT together. Meta-Medicine® is a diagnostic tool based on the survival animal programs of our ancestors, still present in our genes today. Using the survival programming of the body, Meta-Medicine® correlates physical disease symptoms to their underlying emotional conflicts.

From the presuppositions of Meta-Medicine®, every emotional conflict has a conflict active phase, during which we see sleeplessness, obsessive thinking, cold extremities etc as the organism attempts to get over the conflict by repeatedly ruminating over the content. Then, later, if the conflict is resolved somehow, we have a healing or "conflictolysis" phase. During this phase, the organism "breathes a sigh of relief", feels very tired suddenly, has warm extremities, and normal appetite etc are restored. It is during this healing phase that most of the physical symptoms of pain, swelling, increase in body temperature, etc occur. So, contrary to the traditional medical viewpoint, pain, oedema, and similar symptoms, are in fact signs of healing rather than a sign of needing urgent medical attention or antibiotics or other drugs. The purpose of pain in Meta-Medicine® is in fact to ensure the organism stays still and has reduced activity enough, for full healing to complete. In the case of (e.g.) bone osteolysis, this can mean the creature must remain quite incapacitated for a prolonged period of time until healing is complete.

So, what is explained in EFT as a shift or release of energy after tapping, could in fact be the physical body moving very rapidly into the healing phase described in Meta-Medicine®.

Of course the exact nature of the symptoms you have will differ dependent on the nature of the original conflict you experienced. It's worth mentioning that the amount and intensity of pain and healing symptoms experienced are usually directly related to the duration and intensity of the emotional conflict during the conflict active phase.

Now for the good news. Like everything else, the pain and other symptoms of the healing phase are tappable with EFT! Not only can we now correct our previous beliefs regarding the purpose of physical pain, but we can bring relief to these symptoms also.

Tapping directly on the physical pain, or on the associations or emotional meanings behind it, with the usual EFT routines, will normally bring relief.

Please remember to consult a qualified EFT or Meta-Medicine consultant at all times.
