Tapping or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a healing tool I have used for nearly a decade. At first, it was something I only did in therapy sessions with the therapist walking me through the process. As I became more comfortable with the technique, I started using it by myself at home, in the shower, at a stoplight, wherever and whenever.
Tapping is one of my top three self-healing techniques that I use all. the. time. In the beginning, I used it for anxiety and fear based emotions to help me function better emotionally, especially when I was pregnant with Penelope. Sometimes the only way I got through the day and not be paralyzed with fear that I was going to lose her was by doing tapping. I eventually began using it for food cravings and to heal financial patterns that were holding me back. The results have been amazing.
And I also use it with Penelope. When she is angry, frustrated, scared, or overwhelmed, we tap to bring the emotions down and get her back to a balanced homeostasis.
One of the most profound places we have used tapping together has been at Disney. As you probably know, from being the awesome, dedicated and loyal reader that you are, Penelope has Sensory Processing Disorder. SPD makes places like Disney a NIGHTMARE instead of the happiest place on earth. Tapping is one of the tools I use to help keep Penelope from getting overwhelmed and having a meltdown and to be able to really enjoy all the stimulation that Disney has.
Here is a quick video I made on what tapping looks like for us to reduce anxiety about Disney:
For more information about tapping, I highly recommend the book The Tapping Solution. The author, Nick Ortner, is hosting an online Tapping Summit RIGHT NOW that you can access for free till March 5th, or you can just purchase it all to assimilate at your own pace.
