RISING STRONG – LEARNING HOW TO TAP
“Remember, we are the creators and we always create our lives from our inner references. I think this understanding of how the mind works and then using that to our advantage is the key.”
Robert G. Smith
Learning how to Tap is a gift to yourself!
It will help you move away from programs and patterns that are not yours, and towards your TRUE SELF and living your true purpose.
This is a self-help tool that you can draw on whenever you need to regulate your emotions. It calms down the amygdala, which is the stress centre of the brain and reduces emotional intensity. You can Tap while you are driving, while you are walking, in a quiet place at home or secretively in the midst of company. You can Tap in the heat of the moment when emotions are high, after the event or you can choose a past problem to Tap on. Once you have learnt the basic recipe you can Tap merely by touching the Tapping points or sliding your fingers over them. You can even do it in your mind. Your body will have a memory of what you are doing and respond accordingly.
Remember you are changing how you hold your problems in your mind by Tapping (de-fractionation/ disruption technique) and bringing yourself out of a subconscious trance – dwelling on a past event. You are reminding yourself that the event is over and only now is real. As you Tap notice how the picture/ feeling/ sound/ taste/smell you are Tapping on starts to change. You are instructing the subconscious mind to let go and choose a better feeling. Once your “problem” is replaced with a positive picture/ feeling/ sound etc. (however it shows up for you) this means it has “flipped” and you can start to Tap in positive statements like “I am so proud of myself”, “I choose peace and happiness”, “the past is over”, “life is amazing”. Be creative, you are listening! And best of all, you are gradually changing negative programs, patterns and beliefs, and filling the subconscious with positive, healthy references.
Here are the steps to Tapping success:
“When you are present in this moment, you break the continuity of your story, of past and future. Then true intelligence arises, and also love.” – Eckhart Tolle
