Emotional freedom is just about freeing one from various negative feelings like Anger, Jealousy, Stress, Strain and Anxiety. These negative feelings often put our total personality into total imbalance. One may not be able to behave properly if that person is under the deadly control of these negative factors.

Just imagine that in your office, your colleague is getting promoted from your rank to a higher one. How would you feel? Most of us feel desperate. We tend to lose ourselves, though we might not reveal our true feelings. We stitch on face to an artificial smile, though we are dying of pain inside. Similarly how does it feel when you are fired by your superior? Maybe you will return home and shout and make a fuss with your kids or your spouse.
Anger, Jealousy or other such negative feelings control our mind so much that sometimes we may even think that we are not in control of our true self.

Emotional freedom is something which can be of great help to people who are stressed, overwhelmed and discouraged. It makes us feel better and makes us love ourselves.
