We probably all know that insomnia is a condition that inhibits us from easily falling asleep or staying asleep. Some people ridden with insomnia may find that they have great difficulty falling asleep. Others have no trouble falling asleep at all, but they do tend to wake up all too soon. Still, others find that they fall asleep with difficulty, and during the few times that they do fall asleep, they have trouble being asleep for an appropriate amount of time. The bottom line is insomnia means poor quality of sleep. And we know what that does to us, we feel more tired than ever and usually very sleepy during the day. We are typically depressed, irritable, and have trouble concentrating, recalling, and learning. Thus, we are hardly ever at our optimum performance in school or at work.

Insomnia can take two forms. Primary insomnia is a disorder that is usually temporary. Generally, primary insomnia can last anywhere from one month to a few months. Secondary insomnia, on the other hand, is the most common type of insomnia. It usually comes as a symptom or an effect of some other veiled or overt problem. A person may suffer from secondary insomnia as a result of a disease, pain, anxiety, depression, medications that include lack of or disrupted sleep as its side-effects, intake of caffeine, tobacco, or alcohol, restless legs syndrome, inappropriate sleeping conditions, or a change in sleeping habits.

If you are one of the increasing number of people suffering from bouts of insomnia, you may be nearing the end of your rope looking for a cure that is foolproof, convenient, and that offers lasting results. Fortunately, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) will definitely be able to help you. EFT primarily deals with a person’s energy systems, easing blockages in energy channels that arise when a person contemplates or gets engrossed in a particularly disturbing circumstance. EFT releases the blockage through a remarkable but scientifically-based tapping routine.

How can you get EFT to relieve you of insomnia? First, determine exactly what type of insomnia you experience by pinpointing at which time the sleeplessness generally occurs. Do you wake up in the middle of the night and then usually cannot go back to sleep anymore? Do you wake up too soon after you’ve successfully drifted off to sleep? Or do you simply find it difficult to go to sleep? After this, determine the chief stressors in your life like a deadline, a crisis, a childhood trauma, etc. Proceed to write down emotions or issues you may have about trying to get rid of insomnia and then determine each issue’s level of intensity on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the highest in intensity. Formulate affirmations and reminder clauses regarding these issues, an example of which is “Even though I feel the need to worry incessantly, I totally and honestly accept myself just as I am”. Starting from the most intense issue, tap on corresponding meridian points or accupoints using your index and middle fingers while reciting the affirmations and reminder clauses. The accupoints include the karate chop point, eyebrow, side of the eye, below the eye, under the nose, chin, collarbone, armpit, and at the top of the head. The intensity level of each issue should decrease after one or several tapping routines.

Indeed, EFT is the popular cure for insomnia nowadays. It provides lasting results and has mostly positive side effects. Not only that, it can be learned and remembered easily and is completely painless.
