Tapping Your Self Talk

 Much of the time in EFT sessions, we focus on feelings and bringing the level of intensity down to a more comfortable level.

Since our *thoughts* often cause us to have certain feelings, it is equally effective to tap on the thoughts in addition to the feelings.

One easy way to do this is just to “tap your self talk.” When you are feeling emotional, listen in on your own thoughts, and tap through them.

For instance, if you are feeling angry, listen for the thoughts that are driving that anger. They might be things like –

It’s not fair.

I don’t deserve this.

I can’t believe he/she is acting this way!

I don’t know how I’m going to get this all done.

I can’t take this anymore!

Your self talk contains all the raw material you need to tap down your feelings.

Don’t make it hard! Just tap your self talk!

Your turn to play! What do you think the woman in the photo is saying to herself? What should she be tapping on??? Leave a comment to weigh in …
