In this post you will find another tapping exercise inspired by the snail. When you think about snails, they could be considered very self-sufficient. They actually carry their home on their back. I don’t think we have to carry our houses with us to be self-sufficient, but many of us do need to consider how much we rely on others to get our needs met.
Setup (Karate Chop Point) – I think I rely too much on others. I would like to be more self-sufficient like the snail. It even carries its own home with it wherever it goes. It doesn’t have to rely on anyone else to survive. I choose to be more self-sufficient and choose to live like a snail when I am feeling overly dependent.
Eyebrow…I don’t like how much I rely upon others
Side of Eye…For things that I think I should be able to do myself
Under the Eye…It is ok to rely upon others sometimes
Under the Nose…But it would feel good to rely upon myself
Chin…It would feel good to know that I can be self-sufficient
Collarbone…When I want or need to be
Under the Arm…When I choose to be self-sufficient
Top of Head…I can think of the snail
Eyebrow…Carrying everything it needs
Side of Eye…And feel encouraged
Under the Eye…That I could be that way too
Under the Nose…I might not literally carry my house
Chin…But I can feel “at home” with my own abilities
Collarbone…I want to be more self-sufficient
Under the Arm…I can be more self-sufficient
Top of Head…I choose to be more self-sufficient
Take a deep breath and let it out gently.
