Feelings as a critical higher function

An understanding of the neurobiology of emotion and feelings is a key to the formation of principles and policies capable of reducing human distress and enhancing human nourishing ~ Antonio Damasio, The Feeling of What Happens, 2000

When favourable factors combine in unique ways, we experience harmony or perfection (Ackerman, 2004). We experience because we have the ability to feel (Damasio, 2000). As Deepak Chopra poetically describes it: Thinking doesn't lord it over feeling; feeling doesn't stubbornly resist the higher brain; doing occurs when both thought and feeling say, "This is right" (Chopra, 2004). Adding further weight to the proposed topic, neuroscience is increasingly showing us, by means of functional neuroimaging technologies, how emotional messages are encoded whenever a memory is processed for storage in the brain (Ochsner et al., 2002). In other words, feelings -whether positive or negative- experienced during the learning process are encoded along with a memory in the brain for long-term storage. Studies also show that the majority of connections between the billions of neurons in the brain are made after birth (Greenfield, 2000). Nature creates the brain and nurture makes it flourish.

Your point

If you pay close attention to when you're doing EFT, you'll notice a point where you feel more relief, a favourite point so to speak. This can also change with time as you clear certain issues and then others come to the fore and a different point becomes important. Two of my favourite points are under the nose and sanyinjiao. This point is found on the inner leg about 3 fingers width up from the ankle bone. You can search the web for more information.

I will know love when I realise ... the goodness of love is its presence!

From Until Today by Iyanla Vanzant
The voice of love is always calling out to you. It is whispering gently into your heart, reminding you, "I am here for you! I love you just as you are!" Love offers you everything you need and desire. Love wants to give those things and more because love recognises the jewel that you are. Do you recognise the jewel that love is and offers?

German New Medicine- How You Control Your Own Healing

One of the most important concepts in German New Medicine is resolving the conflict shock so healing can occur (what the body always wants and is trying to do). EFT can help us to resolve our conflicts and traumas easily, effectively and elegantly.

I've always flinched when I hear people being described as "damaged' because of what they have gone through in their lives. The greatest comfort to me in life has been seeing beyond the physical and the psychological and going to the spirit of things, it literally has been a life saver for me. What is on the surface is never the full or true story.

The beauty of EFT is that it clears all the "stuff" that we have believed and taken on about ourselves as a result of this or that or the other. It reveals the truth of who we are and always were at our core; divine, perfect, whole and complete.

The only power in the universe is God's Love.

Love is who you are. How you see yourself, how you treat yourself, how you express yourself is a direct reflection of your true beliefs about love. When you can be gentle and compassionate with yourself, you will feel love. When you can be nonjudgemental about yourself, you will experience love. When you can trust yourself and tell yourself the truth, you will express love. When you can see and celebrate your worth, value and beauty as a divine expression of life, you will be love.
