Hi, I'm Trina Lee the founder of Radiant Meditation. I'm an EFT Practitioner and personally love having a daily meditation practice. However, over the years I've gone through times where sitting through a meditation just didn't feel possible. I've been too stressed, my mind too busy and all too often it can feel like wasting time. I know I'm not alone in these feelings, these are often the complaints I hear when I ask my friends, loved ones and clients about their own meditation practice. But, it's hard to ignore the phenomenal benefits of meditation. Personally, when I'm honoring my daily practice of meditation life feels easier and my days are filled with more grace and joy. Determined to find a meditation practice that's not only sustainable but enjoyable and sacred, I began playing around with using EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique (which is also known as Tapping). What I found is that meditation much more approachable when we calm the body and mind first. I began using this approach in my daily practice and then incorporating it with clients, friends and loved ones who were also needing a little help in their meditation practice... and what I found is remarkable.. well, actually Radiant!

What's EFT Tapping?
Emotional Freedom Technique, EFT (or often referred to as tapping) is an evidence based technique used to release physical pain, negative emotions, limiting beliefs, food cravings, fears, phobias, childhood traumas, anxiety, stress, and the list goes on! This gentle technique involves self-applied tapping on meridian end points (like acupressure) in combination with a specific type of modern talk therapy. By doing this simple yet powerful technique it allows you to heal your body naturally, bust through limiting beliefs about yourself, and no longer be defined by your past experiences. So then, you can start to live your life with freedom to be your true authentic self!
WHY USE EFT TAPPING WITH MEDITATION?
Since EFT Tapping is shown to lower cortisol (which is your stress hormone) and sends a calming message to the brain. It's a perfect marriage with meditation, allowing you to have a deeper more restorative meditation. Leaving you feeling fresh, calm, peaceful and most importantly... Radiant!
Q: What’s EFT Tapping and why do you use it in radiant meditation?
A: EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique, also referred to as Tapping, and is an evidence based technique that uses acupressure points and talking about how we feel in order to lower our stress, calm the body and the mind. Turns out EFT Tapping is a perfect way to set yourself up for meditation. Combining EFT Tapping and meditation leaves you feeling calm, peaceful and radiant!
Q: Why are we talking about the negative feeling while we’re tapping?
A: In order to truly release any negative feelings we have to first allow ourselves to feel them. I know, I know that’s not what you want to hear BUT stick with me… the good news is that because we are using EFT tapping while allowing ourselves to feel the negative emotion it will keep the intensity lower and will enable it to release more easily. That’s why these meditations feel so powerful, because you’re truly allowing yourself to release the negative and build a new beautiful positive emotion.
Q: What’s this hand over heart while filling the body with positive feelings?
A: Our hearts have a larger electromagnetic field than our brain. Which is why it feels so powerful to have our new positive feeling centered in our heart and then allow our heart to send it through the rest of our body.
Q: Why the quiet space?
A: This is your sacred space to allow yourself to focus on the new positive feeling, observe how it feels in your body and allow yourself to truly transcend.
