An Unconventional Way to Boost Self-Belief With EFT TappingApr 20, 2023
Self-belief is an essential ingredient for achieving our goals and leading a fulfilling life.
However, many of us struggle with self-doubt and negative self-talk that can hold us back.
While positive affirmations are a popular way to boost self-belief, there's another approach that's worth exploring: EFT tapping.
EFT tapping, also known as Emotional Freedom Technique, is an evidence-based, drug-free therapy that involves tapping on specific acupressure points on the body while focusing on unpleasant thoughts, feelings, and memories.
Unlike positive affirmations, EFT tapping takes an unconventional approach by first focusing on the negative thoughts, feelings, and memories that are suffocating your self-belief to process and release them from your mind and nervous system.
The key to EFT tapping is honesty.
Instead of brushing negative thoughts under the rug and focusing solely on positive affirmations, EFT tapping encourages you to be open and honest about your unpleasant emotions.
By acknowledging and tapping on unpleasant thoughts and feelings, we can process and release them, allowing us to move forward with a more balanced and empowered mindset.
As the renowned Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung famously once said, "What you resist persists."
The more we resist or ignore negative emotions, the more power they have over us.
But by acknowledging and processing these emotions, we can take back control and start to cultivate authentic self-esteem and self-belief.
Plus, EFT tapping has been proven to have lasting gains, meaning with just a few tapping sessions, your self-doubt can be diminished over time.
A clinical study published in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease found that EFT tapping reduced anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms in veterans.
The study also found that the benefits of EFT tapping lasted over time, with participants showing significant improvements in symptoms up to six months after treatment.
Personally, I have found EFT tapping to be a game-changer when it comes to managing self-doubt in challenging situations.
Before delivering a live online workshop and speaking at a conference, I used EFT tapping to air my self-doubts and anxieties.
I focused on all the negative thoughts and feelings that were circling my mind and the tension I felt in my body and tapped while acknowledging their presence.
By doing so, I was able to calm down and approach the situation with a more grounded and confident mindset.
EFT tapping may not be as pleasant as just repeating positive affirmations, as it can release trapped emotional energy you weren't expecting.
Still, it has been a powerful tool for me when it comes to managing self-doubt and boosting self-belief.
So next time you're facing a challenging situation, consider giving EFT tapping a try and see how it can help boost your self-belief.
With the lasting gains found in clinical research, the benefits of EFT tapping could have a positive impact on your life for months to come.
