This week’s episode is all about tapping and manifestion and how we need to release in order to receive. She brings on Jackie McDonald, creator of the MacDonald Manifestation Method, a Certified Advanced EFT practitioner. Jackie and Dr. Laura discuss what exactly EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is and why tapping is such a potent tool to release negative emotions, beliefs, and patterns and navigate you towards manifesting your best self. They talk about the recalibration that happens in your nervous system during a tapping session and how this activates your inner knowing. Jackie also shares how tapping gets in there at a subconscious level and soothes our brain, getting us unstuck from the patterns and behaviors that hold us back.  

What You’ll Hear In This Episode:

  • EFT, or the Emotional Freedom Technique, is often referred to as tapping. Jackie and Dr. Laura talk about why this healing tool is so potent to both clear traumas from the past and set you up for manifesting your future.
  • Proof that when you are ready, the teacher appears.
  • Jackie talks about how she found EFT after a very traumatic period when she was just 19, and it helped her clear up debilitating physical symptoms.
  • With EFT, you can release physical symptoms, beliefs, and the stories you tell yourself that hold you back.
  • Jackie shares some inspirational client stories who used EFT to get their life back on track and heal in unimaginable ways.
  • Tapping is safe and empowering because the client leads.
  • EFT taps on acupressure points, which connect through our nervous system much like a highway system. When we have trauma and stored emotions, those points can become blocked. EFT helps free up our energy from a deep and subconscious level.
  • Jackie walks us through a few of the prompts she uses on her clients so that they become the person they dream of being, in a relatively short amount of time.
  • Jackie shares her mission to bring the healing tool of tapping to underserved communities, and to empower women all over the globe.
