Why Tapping works?
In this post I’ll give a simple explanation as to why it works. However, as I ask all clients, can you really explain to me exactly how the rushing water of a river ends up allowing the lights to come on when you flip a wall switch… No, I didn’t think so!
We all know it just works. It’s the same thing with tapping there is a reason, but just use it, it works!
For those of you still asking how it works here is an easy (for me) explanation.
The act of focusing on internal processes of “The problem”, also known as How Do You Know,(HDYK) then focusing on the tapping allows your neurons to “go someplace else”. Tapping on the acupuncture points for your organs adds your meridian system into the mix. Each point has a specific meaning & related organ. For more in-depth info check this link:
When you think a thought, a chemical reaction happens & a neural pathway is created. Imagine walking through a deep wood.
At first, it’s like moving brush & branches, blazing a trail, the more frequently you go there it becomes an animal trail,
then a footpath, trail, road & finally a super highway! Thoughts have created & attached to other like- minded pathways.
Now it’s a network of “The problem”. Your brain goes directly to that area when a trigger arises.
You tell yourself this is the day, “I’m going to eat healthy & get some exercise”.
Today is the day! But, that thought runs into that unconscious process of protecting what you already hold inside…
I’m fat, I look terrible, I’m lazy etc… A neuro network of thoughts & ideas already living in your brain.
It’s like trying to “Think” your way out of a deeply rooted problem.
You can gain insight and understand, but still have a difficult time getting past the emotions
and associations of all those times you used food to soothe yourself.
Imagine taking a needle and scratching a vinyl record, it wouldn’t play back the same way again.
That’s what happens when you tap on a problem,
it allows you to start begin dissolving the old associations, create new neural pathways and change the way you’ve always been
to how you want to be!
