How to EFT Tapping the benefits

The theory is based on the fact that issues occur in our lives when energy flow is obstructed. By tapping the meridian points aka pressure points, you release this energy and channel it positively. In mindfulness, we bring our awareness to the body and breathing. We distract ourselves and divert the awareness to a point that helps them in channelizing the energy positively. Similarly in EFT Tapping, we tap the meridian points so as to activate them and use them to deal with your issues.

How to EFT Tapping ?

How to EFT Tapping
  1. The first step in incorporating EFT Tapping in your life is to identify the issue.
  2. Be it anxiety, depression, PTSD, phobia, addiction, etc, you need to identify it and rank it on a scale of 10. See how much you are getting affected by the issue.
  3. Decide your statement: Before you start, you need to decide on the statement that you need to say. It is in two parts. The first part is the issue that you want to address and the second part is the positive statement or acceptance statement. Eg: I have a fear of spiders, but I profoundly love myself.
  4. After repeating a few rounds of tapping, write down the rank which would have come down. Repeat this process until you reach 0.

EFT Tapping sequence

The sequence of tapping is in the order of the meridian points that you want to stimulate.

Karate chop point, also known as the small interesting meridian is the first point in the EFT Tapping series. Use your four fingers excluding the thumb and tap the Karate Chop Point.

The portion between the eyebrow or the third eye region is also called the bladder meridian. This is the second point of the series.

3. Edge of the eyes

Gall bladder meridian is the next point and is located on the edges of your eyes on both sides of the forehead.

The stomach meridian is the 4th point of the series. It is situated on the bony area under the eye.
