What is EFT?

Emotional Freedom Technique is a modern innovative Energy Modality, based on the Pathways of Chi. Energy flows through our Meridians, used in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture.

EFT has the ability to address core self-limiting beliefs and deep-seated negative emotions. The ones that lie behind the fears that hold us back.

Emotional Freedom Technique, otherwise known as EFT or Tapping, is a type of emotional acupuncture that combines tapping or pressing on some of the key meridian acupressure points around the hands, face, upper body, and head with modern psychology to receive incredibly fast and impactful results.

EFT is known as Tapping and Emotional Freedom Technique, otherwise is a type of emotional acupuncture that combines tapping or pressing on some of the key acupressure points around the head, face, upper body, and hands, with modern psychology to get incredibly fast results. It works primarily by switching off the fight or flight response that goes to our Amygdala when under stress, and releasing cortisol and adrenaline.

These days no tigers are chasing us – most of the time – but low-grade constant stress can be very toxic if we don’t deal with it.

Scientists have measured cortisol levels dropped by 50% or more within about 6 minutes! And instead sends signals to release (the happy hormones) dopamine and serotonin. What’s great is these hormones are 27 times more potent than morphine! And our body can produce it naturally. Which can be super helpful for this really struggling with panic attacks, anger, limiting beliefs or severe anxieties.

It’s super easy, quick to learn, follow and very useful in resolving most emotionally charged traumas.

You don’t have to “believe in” tapping for it to work, because it’s based on science and the way the body systems work.

What does that look like in everyday life? What does that mean for you?
Well, it may mean you are currently struggling with your emotions, being emotional, have repetitive or negative thoughts. Maybe you are struggling with bouts of anger, anxiety or depression.

It might mean you are trying to achieve something, like weight loss, new business, or a new career, but you keep sabotaging yourself, and you can’t get to the bottom of why.

It could be that you have a history of bad relationships where you’ve been hurt in some way, and then you are judging yourself for not being able to “pick the right partner.” You CAN Change and shift It!

The brain is a beautiful thing, and it’s a programmable thing. You see, there’s this little thing called Neuroplasticity that means we can re-program our brains by getting rid of the negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions and replacing them with new positive ones.

The more we tap the positive ones in, the more positive our brains will become by default. It’s so effective that you will think you’ve learned some personal secret weapon or some kind of hidden magic trick.

I promise you it’s not and I seriously can’t wait to show you how easy and natural feeling better can be.

… all at your fingertips ✌️

… one technique to make what you want possible!

Energy Detox and Crystal Protection for Empaths

Energy Detox and Crystal Protection for Empaths

What are some excellent crystals for protection?
How do I clear ME, my space and my belongings?
What kind of herbs, oils, or crystals can I use for protection?

When people ask me, what are some “good crystals for protection?” I ask several more questions in return to understand why they are looking for protection. I ask what does that mean to you, exactly? I need to know if they are currently picking up other people’s stress or emotional debris, energy smog, or someone’s energetically cursing them with jealous or “haters.” Are they recovering from a narcissist? Do they have office politics going on or social media bullies in their field using some form of psychic attack? Alternatively, is it malevolent energies creating bad vibes in a job, home or building?

What is an Empath:

Empath’s are sensitive to other people’s emotions and sense or pick up their powerful energy as though it’s their own.

After much inner work, you’ll learn to let other people’s energies flow right through you; or absorb the darkness of all the energy in the room and transmute it into love and light to replace the energies in the location and disconnect or put up a clearing energetic field or what is called a, “light bubble.”

Ground and center yourself by visualizing a golden cord or tree roots growing from your feet/root chakra all the way down the center of the earth’s core.

The bubble of light – The “light bubble” is as big as you want to make it. Generally, a few inches beyond your arm and leg span if you were to stand with your limbs all spread out. Every morning you can set the intention to have divine energy sparkling white light to flow through your body like a waterfall, allowing it clear your unwanted cords of energy and to fill you back up and in divine white light. You can call in additional colors like pink for unconditional love, blue for protection, green for good health and prosperity, ultraviolet purple to transmute anything that isn’t of the highest levels of vibration and to also transmute it outside your bubble.

Pillar of light – It’s like a pillar of light that runs from Source, through your crown chakra all the way down your spine and down into the center of the earth. Breathe the divine white sparkling Source light into your crown and exhale out your feet and root chakra.

Clearing Shower – Purify your energetic field with a golden sparkling, energetic clearing hot shower. Visualize with your intention is to release anything that isn’t in your highest good. May the shower flow a golden white sparkling waterfall of divine light flowing through your body and flow through clearing anything that’s not in your highest good down the drain.

Salt Bath – If you’re lucky enough to have a bathtub fill it with 1 cup of sea salt or Himalayan salt, 1 cup of baking soda, 15 drops of lavender. (I’ll go into the benefits of lavender, later on).

Clear with Sound – Sound higher vibrational music solfeggio frequencies, angelic harmonics, crystal singing bowls, Tibetan singing bowls, bells, rattles, drums. Don’t worry if you don’t own any of these mentioned; you can clear energy by something we all have, hands! You can use your hands to clap, or clapping clockwise around a room.

Crystals for protection – Crystals that provide protection work in many ways such as blocking, deflecting, cloaking, transmuting (changing from negative to positive), to harness the energy of the crystal. They can be worn on you, placed in your environment, gridded and activated with a specific intention “protection” or clear energy force field.

Black Tourmaline – Black Tourmaline is an all-around protection or force field around you, your space or property. Any psychic debris will bounce right off. Grid the four corners of your property line, home, and your bedrooms.

Jet – Jet is perfect for empaths. Keeps the bearer from feeling other people’s energy. If you get “hit” with other people’s energy Jet will draw it out of you. It absorbs those vibes. Tip: Jet crystals need to be cleansed frequently. If Jet is working hard for you, be mindful to clear your Jet daily, or it will start to fall off you and break. Labradorite- protects against psychic attack, haters, gossipers that are desiring for your total ruin.

Labradorite – Acts as a shield of armor. Partner with rose quartz and kunzite to add a buffer of compassion and universal love.

Fluorite – Cloaks your aura and takes you off the radar of those who wish ill will towards you — guarding you to avoid curses, psychic attacks. It’s a good idea after you’ve had an energy clearing a professional healer or with a clearing shower/bath. Throw on your Flourite to keep your energetic field cloaked.

Black Obsidian – Matches the frequency of banishment. Returning energy to the sender. It is a powerful crystal use by witches, shamans and magical works that involve breaking hexes and curses. If someone’s cursing you, wear it 24/7 to resolve the issue. Clears your aura of psychic debris. Black Obsidian provides strong psychic protection and shields against negativity.

Clearing herbs, resins, and essential oils.

White Sage (Salvia Apiana) – Burning White Sage is also known as smudging.
Use it to clear and cleanse any person, place or thing. It’s an antibacterial and antimicrobial air purifier. It will adhere to negative energy and ions.

  1. Open all windows and doors, so the smoke from smudge and all negative energies and ions that have stuck to the smoke has an easy exit plan. Use a fire safe container such as an abalone shell, bowl or ashtray.
  2. Light tip of the bundle until you’ve got the end well lit, blow out flame until it starts smoking. Use your hand or feather to direct the smoke where you want it to go.
  3. Start outside the front door and smudge the doorframe and all window frames with smudge smoke. Once you enter your home, direct the smoke from your hand or feather clockwise allowing negative energy ions to release from the environment. Use smudge smoke to clear self, electronics, thrift store finds or hand-me-downs and your crystals.
  4. Say this statement or something similar- “I clear & cleanse this space of all lower energies, entities and anything less than the highest vibrational beings of love & light; are not invited or allowed in this space across, all timelines, spaces & dimensions.
    Amen, A’ho and so it is.

Palo Santo Stick – Means “Holy wood” in Spanish. When burned the smoke works much like smudge lightly clears. I recommend clearing with the “heavy hitter” White Sage first and following up with the smoke from Palo Santo stick. Burn in fire safe container it’s a tad challenging at times to light, but once lit, blow out its flame and smoke will flow from it. Relight as necessary to continue throughout your space, and it is said to invite the sweet and supportive spirits like our ancestors that only have our highest good in mind.

Frankincense Resin – Frankincense resins are like little golden nuggets. It removes negative energy, provides protection, elevates moods alleviates stress and anxiety. Assists in spiritual awareness, purification, and an anti-depressant use a charcoal burner and disk to burn the resins. Caution burners get extremely hot, and it stays hot for a good time afterward. Light the edge of the charcoal disk until it starts to hiss and make popping noises. Once it does that, it will heat across the whole charcoal disc. It will begin to smoke and popping sounds but will eventually die down. At that point, you can add your resin nuggets of Frankincense to burn on the top of the charcoal disk.

Copan Resin – The Mayans and & Aztecs used Copal. Copal comes in many forms including little nuggets, incense cones or sticks. Used as a spiritual cleanser provides clearing energy for space and energetic field. Rids negative thoughts that cause anxiety and depression. Helps to circulate stagnant energy, brightens the aura and area to feel lighter, and clears crystals. Direct the smoke throughout your people, place or things with a feather. Burn much like you do the Frankincense on a charcoal burner on top of a charcoal disk.

Essential oils – Use topically or aromatically via a diffuser while meditating, journaling, doing mindset work or affirmations.

Lavender essential oil – Lavender rids negative energy, clears the aura, calms and soothes, shifts mood from sadness to happiness and harmony. It is a very versatile essential oil that’s good with clearing out negative energy — profoundly relaxing for better sleep. Anoint a few drops lavender on our pillowcase; add to a clearing salt bath. Wipe down your door with a spray bottle with 15 drops of lavender essential oil.

Rose essential oil – raises the vibration. It’s the highest vibration frequency that you can attain. If you’re not a fan of this scent, blend with other essential oils to help to remove negative energy.

Vetiver essential oil – clears the aura, Root chakra fortifier. Vetiver banishes negative energy. Vetiver prevents hexes and curses. Balances central nervous the system. Calms mood assisting against depression and anxiety. It acts as a mild sedative to help with more restful sleep promoting battle struggles with insomnia. It’s also antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic.

Here’s a good start for you as you journey towards your path seeking more knowledge, guidance, and assistance from utilizing these tools.
