Clients are often surprised when I tell them that I don’t sit and deliberately use EFT on myself. They imagine that I have a disciplined practice of 30 minutes a day tapping or something like that.
In fact, I rarely consciously use EFT. It’s just part of my life. If I am on the phone and find myself getting wound up, I’ll tap on the collar bone point.
If I find myself getting triggered in a conversation, I’ll tap on the points in the moment.
Once in a while, I’ll find myself stuck on something and you might find me pacing my bedroom, tapping and talking out loud.
Or if I have the sense that something deeper is brewing, I’ll get help from another professional. I actually don’t like doing the deeper work alone; I need the co-creative and safe space of another.
I also have the benefit of tapping along with clients – I indeed notice how much calmer I feel after a client session – and while part of that is indeed a sense of satisfaction with a job well done, how much of that calm feeling is from having an hour of my own tapping?
There is no wrong or right way to integrate tapping into your lives. I’d love to hear how you find yourself tapping during the day.
