How I Get Faster Results With EFT Tapping And Meditation To Facilitate Whole Brain Living
In today’s fast-paced and stressful world, finding ways to improve our mental and emotional well-being is crucial. Three powerful tools for achieving this are EFT Tapping, meditation, and the Whole Brain Living approach developed by neuroanatomist Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of these techniques and how they can help us lead happier, healthier lives.
EFT Tapping, or Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a form of energy psychology and a stress reduction tool that involves tapping on specific meridian points on the body while focusing on negative emotions or physical sensations. The original EFT technique is based on the idea that negative emotions and physical symptoms are caused by disruptions in the body’s energy system. The way I prefer to use Tapping is more closely aligned with the work of Robert Gene Smith and FasterEFT or Eutaptics. By tapping on these meridian points, we can interrupt habitual thought patterns that are creating our unwanted symptoms and utilize the brain’s neuroplasticity to alleviate these symptoms.
Studies have shown that EFT Tapping can be effective in reducing anxiety, depression, and stress. In one study, participants who received EFT Tapping therapy had significant reductions in anxiety and depression symptoms compared to those who received a placebo treatment. Another study found that EFT Tapping was effective in reducing cortisol levels, the hormone associated with stress.
Meditation is another powerful tool for improving mental and emotional well-being. It involves focusing the mind on a particular object, such as the breath, a mantra, or a visualization. The practice of meditation has been shown to reduce stress, improve cognitive function, and increase feelings of well-being.
Research has found that regular meditation can lead to changes in the brain, including increased gray matter in areas associated with emotional regulation and decreased gray matter in areas associated with stress and anxiety. Additionally, meditation has been shown to increase activity in the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain responsible for decision-making and attention.
Finally, the Whole Brain Living approach developed by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is based on the idea that we can improve our mental and emotional well-being by engaging both hemispheres of the brain. This approach involves using techniques such as visualization, movement, and creative expression to activate both the left and right hemispheres of the brain.
Research has shown that engaging both hemispheres of the brain can lead to improved cognitive function, creativity, and emotional regulation. Additionally, the Whole Brain Living approach has been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression.
In conclusion, EFT Tapping, meditation, and the Whole Brain Living approach are powerful tools for improving mental and emotional well-being. By tapping into the body’s energy system, focusing the mind, and engaging both hemispheres of the brain, we can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression and increase feelings of well-being. Whether you choose to incorporate one or all of these techniques into your daily routine, they can help you lead a happier, healthier life.
