You are what your deep, driving desire is.
As your desire is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny.
— Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV.4.5
It’s time to reinforce some of the finer points of Tapping.
These are some common questions that clients ask:
What does Tapping work on?
How do I know I’m doing it right?
When should I Tap?
YES, TAPPING WORKS ON ALL PROBLEMS. IT CHANGES HOW YOU HOLD A PROBLEM IN YOUR MIND. DETERMINATION AND PERSISTENCE ALWAYS WIN OUT WHEN YOU DECIDE TO TAP AND BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
It’s the most zippy self-help tool because it helps regulate emotions and gives you back control. It calms the physical reactions in the body/ the stress response and transforms how you hold negative experiences and memories. As you Tap you guide yourself towards better beliefs. Thousands of people across the world have had great results and personal transformation. And most of them keep Tapping as problems arise.
Being a human being means we are constantly growing. Tapping helps us adjust.
It’s very simple and easy.
Choose a problem and decide what you DON’T WANT and WHAT YOU DO WANT.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IT’S A PROBLEM FOR YOU? HOW DOES IT SHOW UP IN YOUR LIFE? IDENTIFY WHAT IT IS.
Notice what is bothering you. How big is it? What sensations do you have in your body when you think about it?
AIM AT THE PROBLEM
Look at the image/ faces, tone of voice, feeling.
You can Tap on a sensation in your stomach or a headache. You don’t have to know where it came from.
Use two fingers to Tap the following points, while focusing on the feeling of your fingers on your skin:
- between your eyebrows
- beside your eye
- under your eye
- just below your collarbone
While you are Tapping, say “Let it go”.
You can also add “It’s safe to let it go. Just let it all go.”
Also, if you don’t know why you feel bad you can say: “whatever it means, whatever it represents. I let it go.” You are instructing the subconscious – it knows what it is.
Note: It doesn’t matter which side you tap – you can do either side, or both if you like. These points are where Chinese meridian points are located and connected to the bodies’ organs which produce a stress reaction.
Grab your wrist (more meridian points), take a deep breath, blow it away, and say “PEACE” – and go to a PEACEFUL MEMORY/ PLACE AND BE THERE. Run the good feeling through your body.
Go back to your problem and notice how it’s changed.
Do you feel different?
Is the intensity of the feeling different?
Does the memory look or sound different?
Usually your mind will lead you where you need to go and bring up memories. Tap wherever the mind leads you. You can go to a memory and just Tap on it, for example, when your father yelled at you. Remind yourself that it’s over and it’s not real anymore. Make a decision to release it. Keep Tapping and it won’t play the same eventually. You are changing the way you represent it. Tap till you “flip” it and everyone is happy in the memory. It can’t play the same way again.
Change your story and change your life. Your subconscious mind is working on your behalf. Choose a great story for your life. Your life will follow your new script.
Always repeat until the feeling or memory has ‘flipped” from negative to positive, and the pictures, words, sensations are positive.
YOUR WORLD IS CHANGING.
When to Tap….Tap in the heat of the moment, Tap after the event or choose a topic/ memory from the past to work on.
YOU ARE TAPPING YOUR WAY TO EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE.
