I’m often asked, “but isn’t focusing on the negative just attracting more of the same?”
Well, not really, even if that’s what the law of attraction tells us.
In Meridian Tapping we’re thinking momentarily about the negative in order to release it; so it’s not the same as harping on about something, moaning day in day out without ever changing it. And you know, even if we’re not moaning or complaining, if there’s something that doesn’t sit well with us, or something makes us feel uneasy, the chances are it will be constantly popping up in our minds anyway in some shape or form.
We have our lovely amygdala to thank for that! Remember that it's just doing its job to protect us!
In EFT, yes, we focus on what’s bothering us, but when we tap on the meridian end-points we are sending a message to the amygdala telling it, “calm down, it’s okay.”
As Louise Hay once said, “If you’re going to clean the house, you have to see the dirt…” That’s such a perfect analogy! With EFT, we give what is bothering us a voice, we acknowledge the feeling and then neutralise the emotion.
