Someone told me recently that they have a hard time reading the tapping exercises and doing the tapping at the same time. I listened. Here is a tapping video of the fox tapping meditation I posted recently so that you can perhaps follow along more easily.
When I put
out a survey a while back I asked whether you wanted a tapping exercise about
the cardinal or about the rabbit. The
survey was a tie, and I already gave you the one about the cardinal. Today we will consider the rabbit.
I’d love to do some tapping videos about animals you are interested in. Let me know what you would like to see next.
Have you ever become stuck because you were imagining all of the terrible things that could happen when you are faced with a pretty big challenge? While I think we all know that it is wasted energy, it is a natural freeze response that occurs, particularly when we are not in charge and not in control of the outcome. This tapping is intended to help you move on from fear/panic to confident/calm.
I love music. I have always enjoyed singing. I have usually also suffered from pre-performance jitters. Sometimes the excitement can improve my performance, but other times it really interferes. This tapping demonstrates using tapping to not only reduce the immediate jitters, but also to reinforce visualizations of optimal performance.
An old woman who is thin and ugly….archetypal figure.. keeper…. seer….. healer…… midwife…. a disagreeable malicious sinister old woman. These are all descriptions found for the word crone. Although some of those are quite positive, my being always feels “Don’t call me crone.” This is a totally irrational reaction. Many other women I have talked to feel the same way. The tapping that follows is an exploration of the internal dialogue that happens when I consider that word. While it is obvious that I no longer fit into the archetype of maiden or mother, I still want to scream “Don’t call me crone” because of the negative connotations in today’s mainstream society.
Have you ever had a stress headache? I don’t get headaches very often, but I’ve had quite a few of them recently. News Flash: I don’t like them. When stress is involved, I usually try to tap on the root issue – the stress itself. Sometimes, particularly when you need some quick relief, it can be effective to tap on the physical symptom first.
In the video that follows you will see an example of symptom tapping. First we will get a clearer picture of the symptom, then begin the tapping. There is also an example of two-handed tapping. Comments or questions? Let me know.
Tapping about feeling out of control continues. This video includes an update about progress, use of the 9-Gamut procedure, and an exploration of additional factors underlying the compulsive food behavior.
Are there any areas in your life in which you feel like there isn’t enough of something? If so, you might find this tapping very useful.
I hope you will tap along, even if this isn’t an issue that is currently a problem for you. Any tapping, even about other issues, can help you to unlock your own issues and bring relief.
What follows is an update on my tapping about being out of control with food. There were several positives, although baby steps, and a resolve to set myself up for more success by making tapping more automatic instead of relying upon myself to decide to tap when I need it. I also explore what might be some of the underlying issues that will need to be resolved in order to experience more success in managing my food more successfully.
Have you ever been out of control with food? This is an old problem that has re-surfaced for me. Please tap along with me in the video. If you have questions or comments about any of the content, I’d love to hear from you.
