Woo Hoo! Let’s Tap!
How to get started with EFT…
It’s really easy to get started. Tapping has sometimes been referred to as emotional acupuncture, but instead of using needles, all you need are your fingertips!
Many people like to try tap-along-videos to build up their confidence until they feel ready to tap from audio or scripts. Follow the steps below and then check out my latest tap-along videos.
Step 1 – Find A Quiet Spot
Set yourself up to tap in a warm, calm place where you won’t be disturbed. You can be sitting in a chair or lying down; whatever feels most comfortable for you. You can watch and tap with your eyes open, or listen and tap with your eyes closed.
Step 2 – Drink Water
Tapping works with energy in the body, and as we are made up of approximately 60% water, it makes sense to ensure that you are fully hydrated. You may feel dry-mouthed or thirsty after tapping too, so have some water before and after you tap.
Step 3 – Go With The Flow
Do what feels intuitively right for you. Some people like to repeat the phrases out loud, some prefer to repeat them in their mind. The more specific, the better, so feel free to swap any words around to make them more personal to your situation.
Step 4 – Here’s one of my 100+ videos on YouTube, give it a go and let me know how you get on in the comments…
By following my tap along videos, you agree to take full responsibility for your own health and well-being
You might feel some physical and emotional effects from tapping, either during the session or afterwards, but don’t worry; it’s just the energy shifting and healing in your body. Here are some common signs that tapping is working…
- Tiredness / Yawning
- Knots or heaviness in certain areas
- Tingling/buzzing sensations
- Crying/sadness as you heal old wounds
- A feeling of ‘lightness’
- Muscles relaxing – usually areas that are tense due to stress, such as neck, jaw or shoulders
- Lump in the throat
- Movement of internal gas
- Increased energy/vigour
Tapping On The Heavy Stuff
Most issues are completely safe to tap on by yourself, however, if you have complex trauma/PTSD, or lots of issues to tap on, it may be more appropriate to work 1:1 with a trauma informed certified EFT practitioner, as there is a risk of re-traumatisation.
If you are currently under the care of your GP, please check with them before tapping.
Keep yourself safe and use your discretion about what you choose to tap on.
