Have You Tried Tapping?

When I was first introduced to the mysterious practice called “Tapping” or E.F.T. (Emotional Freedom Technique), I was very much in need of some new tools for feeling better fast. I met Nick Ortner, author of The Tapping Solution and creator and executive producer of the hit documentary film of the same name, at just the right time—because, of course, there are no accidents! As I always say to you and to myself, be open to everything and attached to nothing. Put away your skepticism and give tapping a try.

Here is Nick’s story about how tapping came into his life: 

I looked pretty silly. At least, I thought I did. It was the spring of 2004. I was sitting alone, staring at a computer screen, talking to myself, and tapping different parts of my body. If you’d glanced through my window and seen me, you might have thought I’d lost it.

In truth, I was going a little crazy. The neck pain I’d woken up with that morning was so bad I wasn’t sure how I’d get through the day. You know the kind of pain I’m talking about. You sleep in the wrong position and wake up with a crick in your neck. You spend a day, sometimes two, sometimes three, moving your head slowly and looking like a robot to the rest of the world. I was willing to do just about anything to make it go away.

Including trying something as seemingly strange as tapping. I had been hearing a lot about “tapping,” or EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). Said to be a combination of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology, proponents said it remedied a vast number of issues. I’d been reading one miraculous story after another, so I thought, Why not? Might as well try it aTheTappingSolutionnd see what happens. To my astonishment, the pain—which would normally have taken days to go away—vanished within ten minutes. Ah, relief! To be able to turn my head again like a normal person and not feel uncomfortable all day! This tapping thing actually worked.

Since that fateful day, Nick has become a champion of tapping—teaching the art and applying the science to help people around the world with a world full of incredibly varied difficulties and conditions. Recently, Nick’s best-selling book on the subject was released in paperback format for the benefit of a whole new cast of customers who like a lightweight, portable volume to refer to. I recommend The Tapping Solution for anyone who wants a powerful tool for help with issues ranging from anxiety, chronic pain, addiction and fear to weight control, financial abundance, stress relief, and more. The book helps you learn how to start tapping and begin to release all that is holding you back from creating the life you want.

Here’s a video that I did with Nick that will give you an idea of what tapping looks like and what it can do:
