The Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) is a simple process designed to help you get from where you are to where you want to be.
I found AFT accidentally when I signed up for an online wellness summit where Dr Perkus was interviewed. That was when I was first introduced to AFT. I was intrigued and skeptical at the same time.
I have always had a deep love for essential oils and I used them for myself, and my home on a daily basis. For a while now, I have been looking for a modality that can manage the blockages that are submerged in the client’s subconscious level that, as a life coach, is beyond my reach.
That desire came from my observation of several clients, who seemed to be unable to fulfill their commitment to follow up tasks, despite successful coaching sessions.
My instinct told me that there are some hidden barriers, that were also beyond their conscious awareness, that was hindering what would had otherwise been meaningful and sustainable progress.
I was reluctant to include energy modalities such as Reiki and EFT because it is not always accepted by the masses, and can sometimes be considered too intangible for clients to feel a sense of credibility and validity to their healing/empowerment process.
I attended a free webinar, where AFT was used to heighten intuition. I was blown away by my own experience. In a very short time, I felt a painful memory that had been my companion for a long time, fade away.
I even tried to ‘catch’ back the intensity and the pain of the memory that I was so familiar with, and was very surprised to find that, that was hard to do. That was when I felt a sense of excitement, that this could be the modality that I was looking for, to complement my life coaching work.
What I most appreciate about the process is how fast, how elegant and how non-intrusive it is. Unlike other modality such as psychotherapy where you need to have all the details in order to assist the clients, you can still facilitate an effective AFT session, no matter how much or how little was shared by the client.
That is just invaluable, especially to reach out to people who are not so prone to sharing too much, either out of fear or personality.
Having since my course, I have added AFT to my coaching work and I found it to be a beautiful match. Now the client not only can work through their goals and challenges with the conscious mind, they can at the same time, clear whatever barriers from the past that could hinder their active attempts in getting what they want.
Personal alchemy at its best!
There is also a sense of satisfaction, that I did the right thing to take the certification, since I took the course more out of impulse, instinct and excitement, rather than on deliberate contemplation and planning.
I am grateful to have encountered AFT in such an unexpected manner, even though I had been ‘waiting’ for it. I am looking forward to use this new modality to help women clear their blockages, that has been keeping them from feeling whole, and from celebrating all that it means to be a woman.
In the article ‘Whole brain coaching and the Merlin Effect Lessons from advancing neuroscience by Forbes 2006’, science writer Steven Johnson has proposed that the mind is an emergent property of the brain that results in a whole that is somehow greater than the sums of its parts.
Johnson suggests that human brains is designed to love and connect as much as they are constructed to fight and flee. He refers to the work of National Institute of Health researcher Paul McLean’s triune brain theory to help explain the complexity of how we think, feel and act.
McLean suggested that we actually have three brains in one, a primitive reptilian brain (brain stem and cerebellum), a mammalian brain (limbic system), and a human brain (neocortex).
This concept of a tri-part brain may better prepare as coaches for working with the sometimes perplexing and difficult-to-explain thoughts and actions of our clients as their different brain centers vie for control.
Now with AFT, I can address issues and challenges presented not just by the human brain, but also by the reptilian and the mammalian brain, bringing my coaching to a whole new level. I am truly excited about the developments.
Why be coached only on the 5% of your brain when you can strive towards whole brain coaching? After all, if you are paying for a coach, you might as well go all the way! 🙂
