Tapping for anxiety is a part of tapping technique developed by Mr. Gary Craig in 1995...
...that contains tapping on acupuncture points on the head and on the upper part of the body.
By doing this, we release negative emotions that have accumulated in us during stressful events.
Today, we suggest that you use the basic EFT tapping procedure when you feel anxious and fearful.
Whenever you feel apprehensive, you can always use the basic tapping process.
The basic tapping process consists of these 5 steps:
Step 1: First, inhale and then exhale and pay attention to your body.
Calm yourself down and feel your body.
Pay attention to the discomfort that you feel in your body.
Simply feel your body and recognize how you really feel. Maybe you are sad, frightened or angry.
Pay attention to both the negative emotions as well as the unpleasant feelings in the body.
Step 2: Now determine the intensity of all these negative feelings.
Use a scale of discomfort from 0-10, where 0 means you feel great and 10 is the greatest possible measure of discomfort. Therefore, 10 means the most critical situation and 0 means that you currently have no problems whatsoever :)
The karate point
Step 3: Now start tapping on the karate point on your hand and say the sentence you have designed as a combination of two parts:
Therefore, we are talking about the discomfort that we detected during the first step.
"Although I'm afraid, I love and accept myself."
"Although there is tightness in my chest, I love and accept myself".
"Although I am sad, I love and accept myself."
"Although I am angry, I love and accept myself. "
Continue tapping on the other points on the face and on the upper part of the body.
Repeat the sentence precisely about the discomfort that you detected in step 1
and then formulated an introductory
At this point, the sentence is brief. Just talk about the discomfort. Very simple and to the point:
Complete round and include all 8 points.
The tapping points are located
The 8 EFT tapping points that should be tapped on when tapping for anxiety
Once you have completed a full round of tapping,
Use the scale of 0-10 again in the same way you used it in step 2.
In so far as the intensity of your feelings has fallen, but you still feel them, you can still use the procedure over and over again until the negative feelings have completely disappeared.
