Tapping is awesome #243.mp3

Everybody, Deborah Donndelinger here. Welcome back to tapping this week. This is a short and sweet podcast where we do some tapping on themes from the week or I introduce some tapping, some basic tapping approaches, or sometimes we just dive into the energies behind the Ching and Gene keys in Human Design, looking at the transits of the week. So you might find a combination of some very basic ideas here and also some more nuanced looks at the energies that we're noticing around us. My goal, my my inspiration, my passion is that I want everybody to know themselves and to know how they work in the world, what they contribute to the world, and that we each have our own little balls of positive energy, or stars of positive energy as we interact with the rest of the world. So that's what's important to me, and I imagine is also appealing
you. And we just want to feel better. And we know that we can feel better. I am, I'm going to a tapping conference this weekend. And I think it's the eighth time, it's been hard, I've managed to go to all but one. And there's something so reassuring about being in a room of 100 other tappers and I was out in about last week, and was running into a lot of people whose nervous systems for really amped up. And I have a very heightened awareness, people's energy, partly because I'd say mostly because of the work that I do with people, and also just the way I'm wired,
and how I operate in the world. So the contrast of running into people who, who are just amped up, who are nervous, who feel just shaky in their nervous systems, compared to what it feels like to be in a new of tappers. It's just stunning. And when you're when you're around other people who tap or this is also true for people who manage to have a spiritual practice,
there's this sense of a calmed roundedness that I notice. And the other thing is that if something does come up,
because you know, we want to do things all the time in our lives, people know what to do. So you're when you're at attacking workshop, you know, something comes up, people tap, and we have this common language. But it's also like, we have this common energetic place that we can enter. I don't know, you know, there's different brain waves, and they talk about like, Alpha Theta, I don't understand them on I haven't studied that, obviously. But when tapping is a regular part of your spiritual practice of your self care practice, you can drop into that relaxed state, so much quicker. So I hope to do an email series looking at how to tap how to get started with tapping, because I do get questions and I forget what it's like to be beginner sometimes. So I would let you know, as I make progress on that and make it available, they'll be two parts, one will be a free email series, and then that will be a paid series. Okay, so tapping, yeah, so this will be more basic calming, tapping routine. And I'm assuming you have the mechanics down. And what I mean by that is that you know what the tapping points are, we have the side of the hand point, we have the eyebrow side of the eye, under the under the nose, Chen point, collarbone, under the arm and top of the head. And there might be variations in that order. But that's the routine that I use. If you're not familiar with a physical location of the points, hop over to my website, EFT with Deborah calm. And there's a how to tap page as a written visual, video and audio description of the points. So for today is like what do you tap on? That's a very common question that people ask and one thing to do is to tune in to your body. And notice other any places where the energy feels stiff,
stuck or tight.
Perhaps you shoulders probably had a good workout yesterday, and you notice and lactic acid buildup, perhaps you're sitting too long yesterday and backfill staff, perhaps you've been worried or tense it up something that your shoulders it and sort of hunched up.
Soon as head to toe, notice your body.
And you can do around or two of tapping on that this will be a vet an excellent daily self care routine. So let's pick a spot and notice how tight it feels like it My back is sort of stiff three or four on a scale of zero to 10. And go ahead, notice what body part you want to tap on. And we'll do some tapping on the side of the hand point. So notice this stiffness in my upper body.
I deeply and completely accept myself.
As I noticed this stiffness in my upper body.
They don't have to know why or what it means I can just
easily and gently let it go.
As I noticed this deficit and my upper body.
I know that my body knows exactly what it what it needs. And I can listen to that. And I can hear this message.
It feels good to see it for yourself relaxing when you hear those words while you're tapping. Yeah, so moving to the eyebrow point. When we tap on the points on the face and torso, we're using a shorter phrase from the language from from the longer language from the setup phrase, some eyebrow the stiffness in my upper body,
side of the itis stiffness in my upper body.
under the eye, the stiffness in my upper body.
under the nose, this stiffness in my body,
chin point this stiffness in my body,
the stiffness in my upper body.
under the arm is stiffness in my upper body.
Ah right there, huge
sigh of relief,
top of the head, the stiffness in my upper body.
Stop there, relax your hand, and then go back to that stiff body part and notice does it feel any better didn't move. And sometimes that will happen it will move.
thing I want you to pay attention to a two things. One is, is there a particular point where all of a sudden you feel something relax,
just notice that something to control a hold on to just notice it.
And then to when you're done tapping has a thing you were tapping on changed and its intensity or feeling.
So if you want to keep tapping on the body part you can I personally, I don't enjoy tapping on body parts. I prefer the emotional world. Some people tap mainly on the physical and they get amazing results and insights and shifts on all levels. So if tapping on the body part, and I'm sorry, if tapping for the body part is helpful to you. Please keep going and do a few rounds.
second part of a daily self care practice can be noticing. How are you feeling?
We can get so busy in our days that we don't stop and pause and notice how are we feeling? And Gosh, our hearts really want us to pay attention to them just once in a while. And to notice what's there because there's such wisdom for us. If we can let ourselves settle into the heart and past all the the tension and hustle bustle.
For me, maybe there is something you're feeling nervous about? Or on an about.
And is it a generalized worry? Or is it something very specific? And the more specific the better? So for example, you might have a general worry about a child of yours like are they okay? What do they need next? like are they going to be okay in life. And notice that there's something more specific about that gentle worry that you can tap on.
Or might just be you notice they feel uneasy and so you feel uneasy as their parents or caretaker. And perhaps you have a presentation coming up or job to or you just you feel like your to do list is so long, you can't make heads or tails of it. You just feel this pressure to get things done. This is where the transits come in. This is Martin that subject.
the planetary transits really do affect our energy. And we can start to use that to our advantage. But the most important thing is to know for some of these feelings, they won't last they really are transitory. But if someone keeps coming back to you again, and again, that's something very tangible.
So what I noticed when I
tuned into sort of how I'm feeling is just the subtle unease of having things to do my to do list is too long. And there's a pothole I want to fix on our driveway. And I'm not sure how never done it before. So sort of new and I'm worried about getting, I want to get it down. And then I'm going away to the conference, and I'm speaking or not speaking, I'm participant running around table. That feels really easy. Okay, so for me, the pothole is what stressing me out is like I want it done. But I'm not sure I'm going to do a good job. So sometimes talking out loud even before you tap, and just sort of feel which one has the most tension for you. And you look at the week ahead. Okay, we're tapping, I'm go ahead and use the example I'm using of the pothole, but as you're tapping your borrowing benefits, and your issue can also shift and you might realize to this idea of wanting something done, but not knowing how to do it. Okay, well, on the side of the hand point,
even though I just want this pothole fixed.
So I'm just going to jump in and do it. But I'm feeling some tension about that.
I deeply and completely accept myself,
even though I just want this done.
And I don't think anybody else will do it.
They haven't yet.
So I'm just going to jump in and make it happen.
Even though I feel this pressure about getting this done.
deeply and completely accept myself.
living through the points on the eyebrow, there's pressure to get this down.
side of the eye, this pressure to get this done.
under the eye this pressure
to get this literal pothole fixed.
under the nose
it feels overwhelming. Oh, I'm yawning. Sorry. It feels overwhelming.
Chin point this pressure to get the pothole down.
collarbone this pressure
under the arm is pressure.
top of the head this pressure
relax your hand.
So yawning. Yeah, when we're tapping we can definitely on as a sign of relaxing. Some people cry, obviously some people cough. I find yawning is a very common one. And what happened for me I think was on the collarbone or Jim point i on and the first thought that came in is Wait, I can just take one step at a time. And whatsoever warming is my look at the whole project. If I just look at the next step, then I'm fine. And in this case, I've ordered the material and I have to pick them up tomorrow.
so notice for yourself this issue that might have you feeling pressure,
did anything shift as you tap along with me.
If not, go ahead and stop the recording and tap for yourself. I'm even though I'm feeling this pressure about this issue, I deeply and completely accept myself and then go through the point saying this pressure this issue this pressure this issue, alternating the phrases.
And and the third way we can tap as part of a daily self care routine is just noticing what thoughts are in your head. The one thing about it's just so amazing about tapping is that as we tap the thoughts change, we don't have to change the thoughts to begin with. But But looking at our thoughts as another doorway or an entry into tapping. So might be that
you have this running, you know, we all have this running commentary in our heads. Right now I'm completely relaxed. So I have no running commentary my head. But if there's something that's been
a thought that's been reoccurring for you, and it doesn't feel good.
That is excellent, tangible material.
So you know, I have a skip the car, as missions done, and I have back of my head, I have to get this done, I have to get this done, I have to get this done. That's not a very helpful thought. So this is a very small example. So let's tap on that. And notice if you have any thoughts that you want to tap on,
make a note of it and then tap along with me. Okay. Even though I keep thinking that I have to get the stupid emissions test done.
I deeply and completely accept myself.
Even though I keep reminding myself that I have to get this emissions test on.
I keep thinking about it.
Even though I keep reminding myself that I have to get the submission test done.
I wonder if I haven't put it on my schedule yet.
Hmm. I deeply, completely accept myself.
Even though I know I have to do this, but I haven't scheduled this.
I want if I feel better if I just put it on the schedule.
I have to get this done.
I don't know when I'm going to do it.
I have to get this done.
sort of silly to put keep putting it off.
I want to get this done.
But I'm not sure when
I know I'll get this done.
So right there,
that progression of thoughts as we were tapping from
I have to get done. I want to get this done. I know I'll get this done.
So those are three ways we can use tapping as part of our daily care routine. And honestly, just the fact that
and pause and you turn inside and you pay attention to yourself is incredibly helpful. But when you add in the tapping and what it does for our bodies and our brains and our nervous systems, it's like a supercharged boost to the self care reflection.
Okay, have a wonderful day and a wonderful week. I look forward to talking to you next time. I'll have lots of energy from the spring energy event. And if you have any questions about how to tap, please do email me. I find it very helpful for me as I'm creating this email series. Gosh, I have so many email addresses yet my website Debra and Linda calm or also known as EFT with deborah.com has a contact page and that's probably the best way to get ahold of me. Okay, thanks much
