Everyday Tapping: Get Back On the Horse!

by | Aug 21, 2015

Afraid to do something again after an unsuccessful attempt?

We’ve all been there.

This weekend, I’ll be doing something again that didn’t go entirely well last time…

Coosa Kayaker

This is just a class I rapid!

I almost drowned!!

Watch me tap through it here!

I’m going rafting this weekend (that’s why this is a shortie post!) and the last time I went, there was a very scary part.  I actually could have drowned! I was bumped out of the boat in a class IV rapid called “Hell Hole.”

Here you can watch a kayaker surf Hell Hole and see what a monster of a rapid it is.

This seemed like a good time for me to tap through the event and clear out any remaining fear or shock that I might still have.

This is one of my favorite ways to tap – just telling my story out loud while I tap. You can do this, too. In the companion video you’ll here the story – and it’s a pretty good one!

You can use this to dispel emotions that are at about a 5 or less on a scale of 1-10. If you are dealing with something that should be above a 5 on the 1-10 scale, a phobia, or debilitating fear, work with a coach to clear it.

This technique is to iron out a little bit of discomfort or worry about success.

Here is how you do it

Find a friend who will sit and listen to you while you talk and tap through the event. This is useful because a good friend will notice when  parts of your story make you extra emotional.

Ask them to let you know when it happens so that you can dig a little bit deeper at that point. If you don’t have someone handy, use your phone to record it and play it back while you tap along with yourself.

Once you have your friend or recording device handy, think about a few things you learned from the event. How many positives came from it? Are you stronger? Smarter?

Imagine the event as vividly as possible. Recount it out loud as if you are an observer watching yourself experience the event. Be sure to forgive yourself and the other people involved. Release and let go of old emotions.

When you get to the end of your story, tap through the benefits. Remember that you are smarter. Think about what you might do differently next time. How do you want things to turn out next time?

End it with Tapping through your best-case scenario

Is your fear of getting back on the horse beyond the scope of this tapping protocol? Contact me and let’s work through it!

Have a fabulous weekend!
