If there was a reason why you haven’t created time to tap, what would it be?
Starting a question with “if”, is a great way of accessing information that normally is hard to find. If I asked you why you haven’t created time to tap, your answer would probably be “I don’t know”. But if I ask, “if there was a reason…”, you might be able to find one.
The answer might be:
- because there is so much else to do
- I haven’t got the headspace to do it
- every time I have a moment to myself, my head spins round with all the things I need to do and I can’t think of anything so I end up doing nothing!
- because it’s not a priority
- because I’m not sure it would work for me
- because I feel silly doing it
- or it still may be “I don’t know”.
Whatever the answer, use that to tap on.
So for example, a tapping round might look like this:
Side of hand: Even though I haven’t been tapping because there is so much else to do, I deeply and completely love and accept myself
Top of head: there is so much to do
Eyebrow: its overwhelming
Side of eye: and I want to find the time
Under eye: but there is always something more important
Under nose: and I feel a bit silly
Chin: especially if my family are around
Collar bone: and when I do have a moment to myself
Under arm: my head spins and I get nothing done
Top of head: So I am open to the possibility
Eyebrow: of being kind to myself
Side of eye: I’ve got a lot on my plate right now
Under eye: so I choose to stop giving myself a hard time
Under nose: I’m noticing my feet on the ground
Chin: I’m noticing my breath
Collar bone: I’m noticing how my body feels
Under arm: And I’m open to the possibility
Top of head: to become more present and centred in this moment
Eyebrow: I’m acknowledging the things I HAVE done today
Side of eye: I am tapping now
Under eye: and its only taking a few minutes
Under nose: and its helping me feel calmer
Chin: more focused
Collar bone: and more energised
Under arm: so maybe I can create another moment some time soon to tap again!
