A common question from newcomers to EFT is about reactions to EFT such as yawning, sighing, giggling, tears, burping, and laughing. Yawning can be a particularly confusing reaction, as we associate it with tiredness, boredom, and exhaustion. For some newbies to tapping, yawning can be alarming, especially if the person is in an exhausting physical or emotional condition. It may seem like a warning sign that they are about to get worse rather than better. Fortunately, nothing could be further from the truth.
A yawn or similar reaction simply means that your energy is rebalancing. Then definitely something is happening for you. Do not try to suppress yawning, tears, giggling, giggling, belching, etc. while tapping. These are releases that occur when your energy rebalances on any particular subject. This is really good. Sometimes you may yawn more than usual. This means that there was a great change.
Yawning is so powerful in helping you move forward that there is a whole meridian healing technique based on EFT and yawning. This is called FREEWAY-CER. It is short for Quick Release of Trapped Emotions with a Yawn – Energy Routine Change. Note the “with a yawn”. In other words, your natural EFT yawning is something that others spend a lot of time and money learning! You can certainly see it as a great gift. How wonderful is that ?!
In summary, 3 things a yawn during EFT is not:
A sign of tiredness;
A sign of boredom;
Anything to worry about or try to suppress.
And these are the top 3 things a yawn actually means during EFT:
A sign that your energy is rebalancing for the better;
A great gift to appreciate and develop.
If you don’t yawn when you do EFT, there are two explanations why this doesn’t happen to you. First and foremost, each of us has a different body that reacts in a unique and appropriate way for us. Some people yawn, others burp, or have other ways of breaking free. And all are totally and equally valid. The second reason, if you don’t have any bodily reaction to EFT, is that some of us may take time to flow with the energy. In that case, just take your time and play more often. You will soon find yourself experiencing the releases that you see in others or that you hear about.
And whether it’s accompanied by yawning or not, enjoy your EFT journey to health, success, and happiness!
