  • Tapping For Panic About Global Issues (Pod #438)

    Tapping For Panic About Global Issues (Pod #438)

    11/03/2020 Duration: 13min

    At the time of the recording of this podcast the COVID-19 virus is starting to impact daily life around the world. The number of cases is spreading. Sporting events are being canceled. People are being encouraged not to travel. Because of the constant stream of news and information on our social media feeds, it is easy to feel panicked. This panic is rooted in two factors. The first is the fear about getting sick. The second is the fear caused by knowing we can't do anything about the big picture problem. It's as if it is something that is slowly creeping towards us and we are powerless to stop it. This week I have for you a simple tap-along audio and script to help you to feel calm in the face of a global problem that we don't feel like we can do anything about. [Note: Here is a tap-along audio and script to help you to stay healthy. If you are feeling sick, make sure you reach out to your primary care provider. Tapping is a great tool to augment and support your health, but should not be the only tool you u

  • The Most Misunderstood Part Of Tapping? The Words You Say (Pod #437)

    The Most Misunderstood Part Of Tapping? The Words You Say (Pod #437)

    09/03/2020 Duration: 06min

    The most common question I hear about tapping is "Will tapping work for [insert issue]?" The second most common question is "What are the right tapping phrases to use for [insert issue]?" I understand why that question is so often asked. In most tapping trainings you are taught that your tapping phrases need to be as specific as possible to get the most out of tapping. This concern is compounded when you hear an experienced tapper effortlessly come up with what seem to be the perfect phrases. In reality, there is no such thing as the "exactly right words" to tap along to. The words themself aren't magic. In this short audio I explain how best to approach the words and phrases that you can tap to AND the most effective way to come up with the perfect phrases for you. The good news is that it's much easier than you would think. Support the podcast! Subscribe in: Apple | iPhone | Android | Google | Spotify | Pandora

  • Tapping To Be Comfortable With Pride (Pod #436)

    Tapping To Be Comfortable With Pride (Pod #436)

    04/03/2020 Duration: 21min

    Pride is on the list of the seven deadly sins and whether explicitly and implicitly, our culture discourages us from displaying pride or egotism. Instead, we are taught to do our work and keep our heads down. It is true that some people have outsized egos that cause them (and others) problems, but just because there are egomaniacs in the world doesn't mean that we shouldn't feel pride. Feeling a sense of pride in our work and our capabilities is healthy. It helps us to stay motivated and continue to do good work and it allows others to see what we can do, what is possible and how we can help them. Tap along with this week's podcast to cultivate a healthy sense of pride in who you are, what you can do, and what you have accomplished.

  • How To Get More Out Of Your Goals With Tapping (Pod #435)

    How To Get More Out Of Your Goals With Tapping (Pod #435)

    02/03/2020 Duration: 12min

    Multiple studies have shown that stating clear goals makes it more likely that we will be successful. They help us to stay on track and maintain our focus. But simply having goals is not enough. At one extreme it is easy to become disconnected from our goals because they are too abstract. At the other, we can find ourselves in a situation where we are so focused on our exact goals that we miss other opportunities. This week's podcast explores the one simple idea that you can add to any named goals that will increase your likelihood of success AND in many cases in a much easier way than planned.

  • How To Tap When You Dont Feel Anything (Pod #434)

    How To Tap When You Don't Feel Anything (Pod #434)

    26/02/2020 Duration: 20min

    One of the keys to effective tapping is having an emotion to tap for, but sometimes we aren't able to feel anything deeply. We may feel numb or ambivalent and even though these two experiences are not the same, they have much in common. This week's podcast will give you strategies for tapping when you find yourself in a state where you feel disconnected from your emotions. It includes two separate tap-alongs for each of these sensations. You can find both tapping scripts as downloadable pdfs over at Tapping Q and A Podcast Scripts and Transcripts. Support the podcast!

  • What does forgiveness really mean? (Pod #433)

    What does forgiveness really mean? (Pod #433)

    24/02/2020 Duration: 16min

    One of the most difficult ideas that my clients wrestle with is that of forgiveness and I have found that they often lack a clear understanding of what forgiveness is and what it is not. When we forgive someone else it can feel like we are saying it is okay, that they don't have to take responsibility for their actions, or that they are allowed to hurt us again. This is NOT what forgiveness is! Instead forgiveness is the process of choosing no longer to be stuck in the past emotionally. In this episode I define what I understand forgiveness is and what it is not. This will help you to embrace forgiveness in a healthier way. I also demonstrate how I tap for this idea of forgiveness to make it even easier to integrate.

  • Using Metaphor To Supercharge Your Tapping (Pod #432)

    Using Metaphor To Supercharge Your Tapping (Pod #432)

    19/02/2020 Duration: 25min

    The tool that I use the most often from my hypnosis training while doing tapping and EFT is metaphor. The subconscious mind often works in imagery as a way of presenting struggle, trauma, and limiting beliefs. Since this is the language of the subconscious mind, it makes sense that when we are doing work on this level that we would use metaphor as well. In this episode I share with you: How I understand metaphor How our subconscious mind uses it How we can use metaphor to create faster transformation How to integrate it into tapping I have also included some of my favorite metaphors to use when doing inner child work.

  • My Favorite Tapping Tool: Talk About, Talk To, and Talk As If (Pod #431)

    My Favorite Tapping Tool: Talk About, Talk To, and Talk As If (Pod #431)

    17/02/2020 Duration: 15min

    The majority of the issues that I work on with my clients have something to do with the people in their lives. Sometimes the issue concerns someone we interact with now, and at other times it is about the limiting beliefs people have given us in the past. The struggle with issues that have to do with someone else is that we can't change another person and we can't take responsibility for their transformation. And even if someone else wanted us to take on their transformation and we were willing to do so, it can't be done. To that end I have created a tool called Talk About, Talk To, Talk As If. It is a framework for tapping that allows us to look at a relationship from three different vantage points, giving us the ability to tap on any issue from each of these points of view. Two important notes: First, I think this tool is so powerful and useful that it's the very first tool I teach people after I have taught them the basics of tapping. Second, this is also the tool I teach people when they ask about surroga

  • Its Not Intuition, But It Is Your Superpower (Pod #430)

    It's Not Intuition, But It Is Your Superpower (Pod #430)

    12/02/2020 Duration: 20min

    When I am asking my clients why they have made certain past choices, they often say something like, "I don't know. I just had this gut feeling." OR "I just had this sense of intuition that it was the right thing to do." I know exactly what this sensation feels like because I experience it all the time when I am working with clients and also when I am making decisions about my life. But I don't believe in intuition – well, at least not in the way most people understand it. When we define our intuition as something mysterious or magical that's somehow beyond our understanding, I believe we undermine what is really happening and prevent ourselves from getting the most out of these feelings. This week I share with you: What I believe intuition actually is How to get the most out of it How to cultivate it so that is even more powerful I realize that I am flying in the face of convention on this one and I'd love to hear your thoughts on my interpretation of intuition in the comments below.

    Using Tapping To Improve Metabolic Function - Or Any Other System In The Body (Pod #429)

    [Note: This is part 10 of a 10-part series on using EFT/Tapping for weight release with a new article or podcast being added every 10 days. The complete series can be found @ weight release series.] Tapping can be used to help manage the functions and systems of our bodies where our systems can often be over- or under-functioning. Here is a great little tool I use to help tune into the body to gain a sense of how it is working and how we can tap to improve its function. It is called a scoreboard. In this audio I demonstrate the tool using the example of metabolic function, but the same technique can be used for any of the body’s functions or systems. Support the podcast!

  • How To Supercharge Your Tapping With Visualization (Pod #428)

    How To Supercharge Your Tapping With Visualization (Pod #428)

    06/02/2020 Duration: 16min

    I have always found the law of attraction's teaching of "visualizing a positive outcome and somehow the universe will just magically make it happen" a little suspect. My doubt was a prompt for me to do some research and when looking into visualizing an outcome without action, this is what I found: During the course of four experiments, Kappes and Oettingen demonstrated that conjuring positive fantasies of success drains the energy out of ambition. When we imagine having reached what we want, our brains fall for the trick. Instead of mustering more energy to get “there”, we inadvertently trigger a relaxation response that mimics how we would feel if we’d actually reached the goal. Physiologically, we slide into our comfy shoes; blood pressure lowers, heart rate decreases, all is well in the success world of our mind’s making. The research also uncovers that the more pressing the need to succeed, the more deflating positive visualization becomes. via Forbes.com This is not to say that visualization doesn't h

    The Most Effective Way To Start A Tapping Session (Pod #427)

    03/02/2020 Duration: 10min

    One of the great things about tapping is that we can jump right into doing work any time and anywhere. Even though we can start a tapping session without any preparation, I have found that if we give some thought to how we begin a session, then we will get more out of it. Here are five easy things to do at the beginning of a tapping session to make sure that you are grounded in your body and in the moment AND that you are fully present to the work you are going to do. You don't have to do all five, so you can mix and match to the ones that make the most sense to you. Support the podcast! Subscribe in: Apple | iPhone | Android | Google | Spotify | Pandora

  • Tapping For The Next Best Emotion (Pod #426)

    Tapping For The Next Best Emotion (Pod #426)

    29/01/2020 Duration: 22min

    When we sit down to tap we are doing it because we want to feel better. It is easy to fall into the trap of feeling like the only way our tapping will be successful is if we feel absolutely wonderful when we have finished. In truth, that isn't always possible but there are many times when we can gain relief without achieving total relief. If we set the standard for tapping that it is only successful if we gain total relief and we only have partial relief, then we will be disappointed with our tapping even though we feel better. In this podcast I talk about a simple four-step process that you can use to get the most out of your tapping and feel satisfied with your results. Using a process like this means you will get more out of an individual tapping sessions, have a better sense of your transformation, and feel encouraged to tap again in the future.

  • How A Small Amount Of Work On Big Issues Can Make All The Difference When Tapping (Pod #425)

    How A Small Amount Of Work On Big Issues Can Make All The Difference When Tapping (Pod #425)

    27/01/2020 Duration: 20min

    There is an interesting phenomenon that crops up as we become more experienced tappers and more experienced with healing and change work. We start to recognize what is possible with healing! There are two sides to this. On one hand we can become excited about having such useful tools, while on the other hand it can feel daunting to recognize how much we actually have to do. Feeling daunted can prevent us from wanting to tap because it feels like we have too much to do and it's too big a task even to begin. The good news is we don't have to do all the work at once AND even only doing a small amount of work on a big issue can make a useful difference in how we feel. This week I share a simple tap-along to help you to start the healing process when it feels too big. Support the podcast! Subscribe in: Apple | iPhone | Android | Google | Spotify | Pandora

    How Thinking Of Your Body As A Factory Can Speed Healing And Transformation (Pod #424)

    22/01/2020 Duration: 24min

    If you have ever worked with me one-on-one or listened to an audio of me working with a client, then you know I spend a lot of time asking different parts of your body for feedback. I regularly have my clients ask questions of the physical sensations they are feeling. That is not a metaphor for something else. I really have them ask questions of the physical sensations they are experiencing (like tightness in the chest that comes up with worry) as if the sensations can talk back. Moving the focus to bodily sensations helps clients to get out of their conscious minds. The conscious mind can be inaccurate when it is trying to understand why we are the way we are. It can make an educated guess, but sometimes that is inaccurate. Pretending that a physical sensation can talk back to us gives the subconscious mind an opportunity to share information it has about the issue we want to address with tapping. Based on the success of this type of work, I have a tool that you can use at the start of the day to set you up

  • Fix v. Transform (Pod #423)

    Fix v. Transform (Pod #423)

    20/01/2020 Duration: 09min

    When I am working with clients I pay particular attention to the words they use to describe what they are experiencing. That's because more often than not our emotional response is informed by how we describe what is going on, rather than what is actually going on. To that end I have created a number of resources to help you decode the language you (or your clients) are using. In this audio, you will hear me working with one of my clients as we discuss the difference between and "fix" and "transform" and how each of those words impacts the healing process. An audio transcript can be found below the player. Support the podcast! Subscribe in: Apple | iPhone | Android | Google | Spotify | Pandora Sue: Could you repeat that thought again? That was really profound…the difference between fix and transform. Gene: We so often say "I need to fix something" and for anything that we wish to "fix" we’re implying a sense of brokenness. It becomes a state that we're in that can have a lot of negative charge around it

  • How To Find Root Causes (Pod #422)

    How To Find Root Causes (Pod #422)

    15/01/2020 Duration: 21min

    Recently I was working with a client who was frustrated with the process of tapping. He felt angry. The process went like this: he felt angry he tapped for the anger he felt better some time would pass he felt angry again Dealing with the same issue over and over again had him feeling incredibly frustrated. As we did some work, it emerged that his anger was a symptom of a much deeper issue. The tapping for the anger was helpful in the short term, but since it wasn't the core issue, it kept coming back again and again. In my client's case, his anger was like a notification light on the dashboard of a car where the problem isn't the red light itself, but the light is pointing out the actual problem. For him, tapping for the anger was no different than turning off the red notification light. It wasn't responding to the problem. Identifying if what you are tapping on is the core issue or just a symptom can be tricky. Here are eight questions that you can ask while tapping to help you to go past the symptoms and

  • The Container Process (Pod #421)

    The Container Process (Pod #421)

    13/01/2020 Duration: 26min

    We know that the most effective way to tap is when we are able to be as specific as possible with the issue at hand. But a common misconception about this idea is that tapping is only useful if we are specific. But that is not what the statement above says. It says "as specific as possible". There are times when we can't be super specific because what we are feeling isn't super specific! Sometimes our experience is a collection of emotions and feelings that are much more general OR we are processing so much at once we can't be specific about any one issue or aspect. When that happens I use what I call the Container Process. It's a tool I regularly use with my clients. It is perfect for: when you are experiencing lots of emotions at once when you can't pin down exactly what you want to tap on letting go of everything at the end of the day Also, you will be able to master the process after hearing it just two or three times so you won't need the audio if you want to do it on your own.

    All The Choices You Make Are Functional (Pod #420)

    08/01/2020 Duration: 28min

    Working with clients has allowed me to understand a fundamental of human nature: All the choices we make are functional choices. In practical terms this means that all of the choices we make are the best choices that we can make in any given moment based on the information we have and our current resource state. This does not mean that we always make good choices, choices we are proud of, or choices that we would like to make again in the future. Instead it means that we are making choices for a reason. When we are able to recognize the emotional and intellectual reasons behind our choices, it highlights the areas we can address with tapping so that we can make better choices in the future. In this podcast I share how you can understand why on a subconscious level we are making "functional" choices AND how we can make better choices in the future.

    Recently I was working with a client on using tapping to help him to go after some major goals in his life. He didn’t need to address a particular issue, but instead he was looking for a good way to set himself up to pursue his goals. After we had done a few minutes of tapping, he felt at peace and was ready to pursue his goals for the day and in the long-term. He then said to me, “You need to share this as a podcast. Others will find it super helpful.” So here it is! The audio is less than seven minutes long and I hope it also helps you to go after your goals today. Support the podcast!
