The Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) is a simple process that uses the power of scent to gently shift awareness away from negative thoughts, feelings, and memories, and to initiate a permanent shift to a positive outlook and attitude resulting in greater confidence, clarity and inner freedom.
All of this within 30-60 minutes! Are you curious about how this happens? Read on…
What is AFT?
AFT is a fully guided step by step process based on multiple Psychology modalities - primarily EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) - and influences from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), NET (Neuro Emotional Therapy) and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, i.e. Tapping). Pure, potent and vibrational Young Living essential oils are used at key points in this process to gently clear out any blocks, cravings, or negative beliefs and memories - and anchor permanent and positive shifts.
Why go through an AFT process?
What I love about this process is that it begins with setting a positive intention, so it doesn’t feel like something needs to be ‘wrong’.
There may be some conscious patterns or unconscious blocks playing out in your life that you haven’t been able to identify, process or release. E.g. not getting picked for a sporting team as a child may play out as: I'm not good enough for this job, this relationship, this sport, or you've started emotionally eating or drinking to fill that feeling of lack.
There might be some cravings (e.g. food, shopping or social media!) that you haven’t been able to release and it feels like a constant struggle. You may then question your willpower and begin a downward emotional spiral – taking you further away from what you actually want to achieve.
Note: If you have a specific traumatic memory that has a high emotional charge that you would like to process, we recommend that you schedule a 1 on 1 personal session with Emmely or Merri rather than attend a group AFT clearing. This is so they can guide you through the appropriate process to gently reduce the emotional charge, leaving you with a positive outlook and freedom that can ripple through other areas of your life.
What is different about AFT?
After identifying an intention, craving or negative memory, the AFT process gently guides you to access memories that may be deep in your subconscious, or highlight what you thought were trivial memories – but they a profound impact on your life and on the intention, craving or negative memory you identified.
The scents of particular essential oils are then used to transform these memories, which often have a high emotional charge, in a permanent way. It is something that has to be experienced to truly see this MAGIC!
What to expect after an AFT clearing
Today you’re going to experience something very special. You will walk out of here feeling a TANGIBLE change in your mindset and outlook on life, and feel…lighter. Memories and experiences that used to upset you…no longer do! You don’t quite know why, and wonder if it will last. It doesn’t make ‘sense’ that the emotional charge of a lifelong memory can just be transformed like that!
So come and join us – experience AFT for yourself and see what it uncovers for you. Once the path has been cleared imagine the possibilities that may appear!
