Yesterday the miraculous happened: makeup, childcare, and my energy level all aligned, and I took the opportunity to create new tapping videos! About a week after I created the old one, I knew I could do better. Well, I finally have. While not any more comfortable on camera, I am at least more useful this go around.
(Aside: If you’re wondering what on earth this “tapping” thing is, check out my tapping article for a thorough explanation and instructions. But the short version is that it’s an acupressure technique for relieving anxiety, releasing trauma, and processing strong emotions. )
Here’s what I’ve got for you today:
3 Minute Hand Position/Acupressure Points Video
This is a quick way to get a visual for the first time or refresh your memory. You can use it along with the written instructions here.
13 Minute Tap-along-with-Me Video
If you’re new to tapping or feeling particularly distressed, just start the video and tap along with me, step-by-step. You don’t have to do this alone! All you need first is a glass of water and your clearing statement (instructions on this page).
Even though I still feel afraid of publishing videos like these online, two years’ growth has grown my courage. I know more than ever that tapping works, and I’ve gained confidence talking about it even in skeptical and Christian circles. Why not offer a tool that’s yielded only good fruit in my life? More and more I’m aware of the profound suffering around me and within. I hope these videos can be a small drop in the bucket.
On the fence? Wondering what you might tap about? Besides the ideas in my tapping post, here are a few situations I’ve tapped about recently:
- Recording videos and putting them on the Internet (!)
- My 3yo angrily refusing the food I cook
- An email from my nutritionist saying that what I’m doing isn’t enough
- Simply processing the day’s emotional ups and downs
- Judging myself for feeling rage and hate. Good Christian girls don’t feel like that, do they?
- My body looking different after babies/not living up to how I should look
- Feeling weak and sick
- Annoyed with my husband for _______
Whew. That’s probably more than enough self-disclosure for one day. Care to share what you tap about — or might try tapping about?
