It’s that time of year again so out comes my Tapping routine to see you through the festive season with credibility intact!
A couple of helpful tips:
- girls never try to cover all bases; it usually doesn’t work
- accept help when offered or just ask 🙂
Ok when we rate our fear/anger/worry around the issue – O is low – 10 means Action Time!
We state very specifically where we feel distress in our body eg in our head, on our shoulders, in our legs e.g. this deep sickening feeling in my gut/ this headache that just won’t let up
Tapping Karate point say
Even though I think I may be trying to cram too much into my day, I Love And Accept Myself Deeply And Completely( at this point in the year you may well be unimpressed with yourself and/or your lot and only manage – I like myself as a person, whatever you prefer to say!)
Even tho I might seriously be attempting to do too much, I love and A M D A C
Even tho I’m actually knackered but pretending I’m not! I can still love and accept M D A C
Tap on all the following points gently with fingers
Top Head This isn’t good
Corner of Eye Gosh! I can’t do it all
Side of Eye What will they say if I can’t do it all?
Under Eye Maybe I can pretend I CAN do it all, just for a little longer 🙂
Under Nose Yes that’s what I’ll do
Under Mouth I WILL MANAGE
Collar bone I WILL MANAGE
Under Arm Oh dear, I’ve started telling lies!
Take a few deeps breaths. Consider what number of stress level and repeat
T H Why can’t I manage?
C E What’s going wrong?
S E I don’t believe this!
U E Why can’t I keep being Superwoman?
U N It’s still a blooming 9 on the stress scale
U L My (Whatever your discomfort is) Stomach is still churning
C B I just can’t believe this
U A Goodness me/Buggar me (or whatever word!), maybe I can’t DO IT ALL
Deep breaths- Allow reality to creep in and change the Karate phrase to whatever you want – but try this if it helps!
Even tho I seem to be just like everyone else and I can barely admit to it
I love and accept myself deeply and completely anyway.
Even tho I will admit that I need to totally slow down cos I’ll be wrecked before Christmas Eve I Love A A M D A C
Even tho I do admit I need to SLOW UP – I can STILL Love and accept M D A C anyway!
T H I need to slow down
C E I accept I need to slow down
S E Might have to admit defeat
U E I need a rest!
U N Easing up
U M Being kinder to ME
C B I choose to ease up and be kinder to me because I DO deserve to enjoy Christmas
U A I allow myself calm
Repeat and take Deep breaths.
T H I allow myself time
C E I give myself time
S E I need to ease up on all that I THINK I need to achieve
U E I want to survive Christmas
U N And I will tell my family how I feel because they need to know(but that could be very difficult for me!)
U M However, I have decided that I deserve some fun
C B Fun sounds good: gosh that feels nice
U A I could get used to this! Let them all get on with it 🙂
For those superwomen who know how to keep a balance repeat this routine regularly as back-up. For those lesser beings – repeat as required!
Happy Christmas Wishes to all
