One of the things that I have
learnt from my health coaching
programme is that as individuals,
foods that may work for one per-
son, may not necessarily work for
someone else. This concept I
believe applies to other solutions
in our lives.
This will explain why there are so
many solutions to problems written
by different people, which I think is
great. Because I may read a solution
from X and it will not resonate with
become excited about their solution.
In this context, I would like to talk
about a technique called "tapping"
and would like to share this infor-
mation with my readers.
What is tapping? Millions of peo-
ple are settling for lives filled with
poor health and emotional baggage.
Not knowing how to achieve the
joyful and satisfying lives they desire,
they re stuck accepting a lifestyle of
emotional trauma, chronic physical
pain, compulsions and addictions,
or perhaps just an empty feeling
inside. Along with these problems
come pills to kill the pain, sleep at
night, and suppress anxiety---but
this is hardly better than the disease.
If you re like many people, you
feel trapped, caught in this cycle.
You re tired of feeling sad, depressed,
anxious, discontent, and unwell.
You re sick of the expensive and
ineffective treatments. You re fed up
with relinquishing the power over
your health and happiness to psy-
chologists and doctors. You d like to
grow, flourish and thrive, putting
the past in the past. You want to be
your best, living a life that is filled
with peacefulness, joy and fulfill-
ment, from day to day and moment
to moment. With tapping, you can
You can discover the vital secret
for emotional wholeness and physical
relief. You can take your physical
and emotional well-being into your
own hands. It s simple for anyone
to master, and it s free.
Tapping provides relief from
chronic pain, emotional problems,
disorders, addictions, phobias, post-
traumatic stress disorder and phys-
ical diseases. While tapping is newly
set to revolutionise the field of health
and wellness, the healing concepts
that it s based upon have been in
practice in Eastern medicine for over
Like acupuncture and acupressure,
tapping is a set of techniques which
utilise the body s energy meridian
points. You can stimulate these
meridian points by tapping on them
with your fingertips---literally tapping
into your body s own energy and
healing power. Your body is more
powerful than you can imagine...
filled with life, energy, and a com-
pelling ability for self-healing. With
tapping, you can take control of that
So how does it all work? All neg-
ative emotions are felt through a
disruption of the body s energy. And
physical pain and disease are intri-
cately connected to negative emo-
tions. Health problems create feed-
back---physical symptoms cause
emotional distress, and unresolved
emotional problems manifest them-
selves through physical symptoms.
So, the body s health must be
approached as a whole. You cannot
treat the symptoms without address-
ing the cause, and vice-versa. The
body, like everything in the universe,
is composed of energy. Restore bal-
ance to the body s energy, and you
will mend the negative emotions
and physical symptoms that stem
from the energy disruption.
Tapping restores the body s ener-
gy balance, and negative emotions
are conquered. The basic technique
requires you to focus on the negative
emotion at hand: a fear or anxiety,
a bad memory, an unresolved prob-
lem, or anything that s bothering
you. While maintaining your mental
focus on this issue, use your finger-
tips to tap five to seven times each
on 12 of the body s meridian points.
Tapping on these meridian
points---while concentrating on
accepting and resolving the negative
emotion---will access your body s
energy, restoring it to a balanced
We will talk more about this fas-
cinating technique in Part II.
