I thought I was fine; I was proud of myself for doing so well! But a year after my father died, I started to develop panic attacks, couldn’t sleep, and couldn’t go to the grocery store alone for fear of something happening to me – it was strange, but I knew it was all about my emotions. It was intense and uncomfortable. I went to a psychologist, but after a few sessions, I realised it was not for me.

I was looking for a tool that would help me at 3 a.m. when I couldn’t get to sleep or at noon when it felt like I couldn’t breathe. And just like this beautiful Universe does what we think about most, we get. And EFT came over my path!


What is EFT or Tapping?

Tapping can be a powerful tool to help you manage your emotions and improve your overall well-being. With practice, tapping can become a meditative skill that you can use anytime, anywhere.

Tapping, also known as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), is a powerful tool that can be used to improve emotional and physical well-being. Tapping involves gently tapping on specific acupressure points on the body while focusing on a particular issue or emotion. Here’s how to use tapping as a meditative skill:


How does it work?

I have found that using the app is terrific. The guided tapping is powerful! It covers a fast variety of topics to tap on. I can’t say this enough: it is one of the best habits I have the privilege to have learned for myself and now for my family too! It works like this:

  1. Settle into a comfortable position: Sit or lie in a comfortable position where you won’t be disturbed. Take a deep breath and allow yourself to relax.
  2. Identify the issue: Think about the issue or emotion you want to address. It could be stress, anxiety, fear, or any other negative emotion.
  3. Rate the intensity: On a scale of 0 to 10, rate the intensity of the emotion or issue you want to address. This will help you track your progress.
  4. “Create a setup statement: Create a setup statement that acknowledges the issue or emotion you want to address while accepting yourself. For example,””Even though I feel anxious about {specific situation}, I deeply and completely accept myself.””Create a setup statement: Create a setup statement that acknowledges the issue or emotion you want to address while accepting yourself. For example, “Even though I feel anxious about {specific situation}, I deeply and completely accept myself.”
  5. Tap on the acupressure points: Tap on each acupressure point while repeating the setup statement. The acupressure points include the eyebrow, side of the eye, under the eye, under the nose, under the mouth, collarbone, under the arm and top of the head.
  6. Take a deep breath: Take a deep breath and release it. Tune into your body and notice any changes in how you feel.
  7. Repeat the process: Repeat the tapping process, focusing on the issue or emotion you want to address. As you tap, notice any shifts in how you feel.
  8. “End with a positive statement: End the tapping session with a positive statement reinforcing self-acceptance and positive change. For example,””I am calm and at peace.””End with a positive statement: End the tapping session with a positive statement reinforcing self-acceptance and positive change.

If you are new to tapping, it may feel strange at first. But with practice, it can become a natural and influential part of your self-care routine.

Tapping is a valuable tool to help me manage my emotions and improve my overall well-being.

My husband is also hooked. He does his tapping first thing in the mornings, and my kids love it too! They ask for it. My son (7) before he goes to bed and my daughter (4) any time of the day – they have experienced that feeling of peace it gives.

I hope you will give it a try. It will change your life!
