Welcome to Day 2 of the Virtual Book Tour!


Today, I have the pleasure of introducing the blog of Fertility Expert, Heather Step. Heather read "No Problem. The Upside of Saying No" soon after publication, and she's written a review and is hosting it on her beautiful blog.

I met Heather at an EFT course. She has a really special story which she's blogged about for years. She walked a long and painful journey with infertility and through perseverance, a lot of EFT tapping for all the emotional stress and pain, and skilled physicians, she fell pregnant and is now the proud Mom of a beautiful 18 month old boy!

For those wondering what on earth EFT is, here's a short explanation.

Have you noticed how the brain tends to freeze up when we're stressed out, freaked out or in a panic? Well, EFT stands for "Emotional Freedom Techniques" and it's a remarkable stress-relief tool that helps us to get calm about any problem, so we can think about it clearly - and then get into appropriate action.

EFT was developed by a Stanford Engineer, Gary Craig, in the early 90's. He was (and still is) interested in personal performance and helping people to move past their blocks to success. He developed EFT after studying with the late psychiatrist, Dr Roger Callahan, combining elements of Eastern and Western techniques.

Craig brought the world an amazing, simple "healing tool" that anyone (even children) can use for stress relief. In it's simplest form, it can be described as a combination between talk therapy and body relaxation techniques.

It helps to calm the part of the brain that's always on the lookout for danger (the amygdala). When we calm and soothe this small  almond-shaped part of the brain, we can relax, feel safe and leave the panic behind. This makes calm action possible. In addition, the body's "relaxation response" kicks in, which gives it a chance to do it's own magical healing of physical issues.

There is a full chapter about EFT in "No Problem. The Upside of Saying No". You'll be able to use EFT for any challenge you face.

Visit Heather's blog for her full book review.

    Hi Nadine, thank you so much for your visit here and comment!

    A virtual book tour is a really fun way to bring the message of the book to people who may not have heard of the book otherwise. I've asked 14 "hosts" (wonderful people who own blogs or Radio Shows) and who are interested in my topic area, to host an article I've written. This way, their audience, who may have an interest in my book, find out that it is available. I also offer special gifts to those who buy my book during this virtual tour!

    Stay in touch, I'll keep posting on G+, Twitter, FB, Pinterest and even StumbleUpon. The message of "self-care" is vital, I believe, and I'm as passionate as ever about.

    Again - thanks for visiting! See you again soon! :)
