Emotional Freedom Technique, and it's a method where a person uses two fingers to tap various acupressure points while stating as emphatically as they can various affirmations. Not only does it cleanse the body's meridians and encourage a positive energy flow throughout a person's entire system, but it also rids the body of negative thought patterns and emotions that get in the way of our personal growth. The Root Chakra, represented by the color red, is what gives of the the ability to stand on our "own two feet" so to speak. It has to do with survival in all aspects of our life, but especially, emotionally, sexually and financially. A disruption in this chakra can show up as kidney problems, anemia, and sexual dysfunction to name a few. As I have anemia and a tendency towards kidney concerns I know I have to work to build up this chakra daily. Yoga and meditation has been helping greatly, but my secret weapon has definitely been EFT. In practicing EFT regularly, I have excised a lot of the thought processes that contribute to a weakened Root chakra and I've well on my way to having a stable 1st chakra. I feel really good about this.
