Do you make things harder than they have to be? I know that I sometimes do. There have been many occasions when I’ve struggled through a task, and on completion been amazed (and distressed) when I realize that it could have been much simpler or easier than I made it. Perhaps it is prior programming that taught me that things worth having require work, or maybe it is the number of past experiences when change was truly difficult. I suspect that I have just been getting in my own way much of the time. This tapping video is about letting things be easier whenever that is possible and at least not making them needlessly difficult.
I often find it hard to know when it is time to take action versus time to wait. When exactly is the right time? This tapping video was inspired by portions of the Tao Te Ching, Verse 8.
When acting, remember – timing is everything
One who lives in accordance with nature
does not go against the way of things
He moves in harmony with the present moment
always knowing the truth of just what to do.
Your decision to believe what others tell you is fact or what they tell you is possible may be preventing you from going after the things you desire and can stop you from being your authentic self. Although some people might disagree, I have had a strong tendency to believe what I’m told. Fortunately, this has been less of an issue as I’ve matured. Tap along with this video to gain more clarity about your tendency to believe what you are told.
What do you get when you combine tapping and complaining? Tap-plaining. Complaining doesn’t usually help much. It doesn’t fix anything and doesn’t usually make you feel better. When you tap while complaining you start to feel better, your persepctive shifts, and solutions become more obvious. Tap along with the video to experience how this can work.
When a feeling or behavior keeps repeating itself I often feel powerless to make a change. Getting to the feeling behind a behavior can be extremely valuable. One way to do this is by asking the question, “When have I felt this way before?” The technique can be utilized with any feeling. This video uses tapping on sugar craving to demonstrate how to chase down the origin of a current emotion.
It seems to be quite common to reach for sugary snacks when our energy seems to be a little low. Unfortunately, eating that snack is unlikely to address the underlying problem that caused you to want to eat. Tapping is a great solution for low energy. Tap along with the video to get a sense of how to use tapping when your energy crashes. This tapping can also be found in Don’t Diet: Reprogram Your Weight With Meridian Tapping.
