Tapping Tips for Best Results

  1. Before beginning the tapping, tune into your present level of emotional discomfort regarding the situation. As well, see if you are feeling it somewhere in the body. Doing this before each new run of the tap-along is a good idea because with every run, the intensity of your discomfort will reduce or at least shift somewhat and you can gauge it before starting a new run.

  2. See if you can gauge your emotional or physical discomfort on a scale of 0 to 10. This will give you an objective measure of your progress with each run of the tap-along. Zero implies you're not bothered by the problem, you feel fine, and 10 means the problem is unbearable, you're suffering terribly. Doing this before and after each run of the tap-along is a good idea because with every run, this number will have reduced somewhat and you can gauge it before starting a new run.

  3. In certain cases you may feel a little worse after doing a run of the tap-along. Suppressed emotions get uncovered and they may temporarily cause you to feel worse than when you started. Continue to do the tapping, running the tap-along again until the intensity comes down and you start to feel better. Alternately, you can also stop the tap-along, focus on the emotions that have come up and simply tap on your points. You do not need any special wording for this because you are already feeling the emotional charge. Then resume the tap-along audio from where you left off.

  4. Remember that it is okay to acknowledge the existing state of things. Do not be alarmed by the use of negative language that merely acknowledges the present state of things - such as "I'm feeling overwhelmed" etc. Tapping is a cleansing technique - you acknowledge what doesn't feel good and clear it out using simultaneous tapping. Such thoughts are already going on in your mind. Tapping only helps you to safely verbalize and clear them out. Once negative emotional charge clears, it spontaneously makes space for positive thoughts and creative insight to arise.

  5. This tapping script has been carefully worded to hit all the right emotional spots and resonate with how you may be feeling in this situation. Still, it is possible that not 100% of the wording will fit everyone all the time. Feel free to modify the wording to better suit your particular circumstances. When you hear wording that doesn’t correspond exactly to what’s going on in your life, you can silently switch it up in your mind. Or if you are repeating the words aloud, say out the wording that better suits your circumstances.

  6. Any related or even unrelated memories that arise during the tapping could be clues to deeper issues that you may need to address. Make a note of them and come back to them later on to tap on them. Tapping on them will involve running through them in your mind while simultaneously tapping along.

  7. Yawning, thirst, tearing up, coughing, tightening in the throat or chest may be felt and this can indicate that energy is shifting and healing is taking place. Stop if you feel extremely overwhelmed or if you feel that you can’t handle all the emotional charge at the moment.

Let’s begin by taking a deep relaxing breath. Now you can repeat after me or stay silent as you tap along with me, while focusing on whatever it is that you are experiencing a feeling of longing for. This can be a longing for more time, more freedom, more money, ideal weight, better health or perhaps something that you used to have in the past but don’t anymore, or something that you hope to achieve in the future.

Take a deep breath and relax. Check in and see how you feel now. If there is any lingering emotional charge, or if something upsetting has surfaced, do some Tapping on your own, giving a voice to what specifically is bothering you. You may also repeat tapping through the script while focusing on the specifics of what’s still lingering.
