I wonder if you’re like me? Sometimes I’m very decisive, and sometimes I’m not. In the wrong mood, I can dither for England, prevaricate till the cows come home. "Do I feel like going out / staying in? Should I walk dog now / walk dog later? Bite the bullet and join Twitter / put it off till tomorrow?” I can tolerate a certain amount of dithering, but eventually I annoy myself enough to raise two fingers and start tapping.
It’s remarkable what happens when you voice a question while tapping.
If you make a statement to yourself, such as “I don’t know if I want to do x,” nothing much happens. You don’t know, you recognize that you don’t know, and that’s it. If you ask a question, however, you’re innately programmed (with or without tapping) to try to answer it: if I randomly ask “have you ever seen a purple cow?” your mind will go there, whether you like it or not.
If you TAP a question — such as “how on earth can I resolve this issue?” — you open up a hotline to your subconscious and very quickly the relevant issues come popping up, followed by answers.
I use tapping to explore all manner of questions: “How can I figure out how to...” “Should I...?” “Do I want to...?” “Who could help me with this...?” “Where can I go to...?” If I feel low, and I’m not even sure what the issue is, I’ll go ahead and tap “what’s my problem? Why do I feel low?”
I think of it as summoning up my own little genie; most of the time he’s sitting there, swinging his legs, bored, waiting to be given a task. If I make a statement, he just sighs. If I ask a question, he’s delighted: he’s been given a job! He jumps right up and goes looking for the answer. And if I’m simultaneously tapping, it’s as if the little genie is turbo-charged!
Next time you’re going round in circles, try this: combine a) posing the issue as a question and b) tapping round the key* points.
*Key tapping points: Eyebrow, side of eye, under eye, under nose, under chin, collarbone, under arm, top of head. (See photo in my 30 March 2015 blog.)
PS: I did join Twitter, after tapping! I’m now known as @queenoftapping
