6 Point Energy Tapping Technique – Life coaching series

6 Point Energy Tapping Technique – Life Coaching Series.

 

I have continued this life coaching series with an energy tapping technique you can use anywhere. The whole point of this series is to empower you with skills that will change your current state and reality quickly.

 

This technique is completely new and from a  master of personal change and communication. Mike Mandel has been an expert in this field since 1975 so stay tuned for something completely new.

 

If you know anything about this I’m sure you will agree that many energy tapping regimes are complex, take time and mental effort to remember and apply so can be awkward to master.

The great news is this energy tapping technique is simple, powerful and easy to learn.

6 Point Energy Tapping Technique - Life coaching series

 

I will take you through it point by point then show you in a youtube video you can use if you prefer to reference it there.

 

The technique is usable for emotional issues as well as physical aches and pains as well.

Which makes this a great all round resource to carry with you in your back pocket and use.

So how to do the energy tapping technique.

Note: When tapping, tap in the spot I show you in the video around 7-10 times with a force that you know you are actually tapping with some force but won’t hurt or bruise yourself.

 

  1. Firstly score the thing/issue/problem/situation that you want to change. Use a scale of 0-10 where 0 is completely flat and has no pain or emotional intensity at all. 10 is the maximum discomfort it could possibly be.
  2. Tune into the physical and emotional feeling of the thing that is bothering you that you want to change and manifest it completely (also score it again) and keep it present.
  3. Tap on the top of your head 7-10 times saying “let it go, let it go, let it go” each time you tap. You can say this out loud or in your head.
  4. Tap on the front of your forehead with your 4 finger tips vertical 7-10 times saying “let it go, let it go, let it go” each time you tap.
  5. Tap on the edge of your eye right on the bone saying “let it go, let it go, let it go” each time you tap.
  6. Tap right under your eye on the radial part of the bone saying “let it go, let it go, let it go” each time you tap.
  7. Tap on your collarbone saying “let it go, let it go, let it go” each time you tap.
  8. Hold onto your wrist for the time it would take 7-10 taps saying “let it go, let it go, let it go” each time you tap.
  9. Breath in, then breathe out, dropping your arms saying “Peace”.
  10. Shake off your body and let go of the process completely.

 

Now score the thing you were working on again and once you have a number do the complete sequence over again.

Re score at the end and continue doing this until the thing you are working on is at a score of zero and completely flat.

 

Please see this video for the whole process of the energy tapping technique.

Mindfulness – Talking About It Is Not The Same As Doing It.

Could Mindfulness make a difference in your life?

 

Most people go through their day planning or remembering what they did but don’t often  pull over, stick on the hand brake and stop in the here and now to smell the roses and that’s such a loss.

 

So many people I meet say “I don’t have time to do that, life is just too short and I have so much to do. Ever heard something similar or said that because you are so stressed out?

 

Well that’s the story most of us create and we ignore it because it’s simpler to just keep going on head down getting on with things the way we usually do hoping we just manage and things improve.

 

Life can be so hectic or that’s what we believe and have been conditioned to say and yes you read that right! But what if that could be different by doing things differently by being more kind to ourselves?

 

Lots of people have heard of mindfulness and there are many opinions of mindfulness out there from a lot of people that have never even read a book or been on a training course about mindfulness. So please beware of well meaning ignorant people with advice based on opinions only.

 

Mindfulness is not going through life constantly floating on a cloud or sitting in bright orange monks robes humming “ommmmm” where you  plan nothing because you must live in the here and now!

 

Mindfulness is a proven scientific approach to greater physical, mental and spiritual well-being that is non religious and secular.

 

How we approach what we do can be done in a mindful way so as not to add time onto our day. Simple subtle shifts can make profound differences in your life by doing things slightly different and with relative ease.

 

A simple way to think of the way we do things that work against us is to think of our thoughts like a ping pong ball. The ball goes forward to the future and back to the past a lot right?

 

This is what’s known as the “doing mode” and has been scientifically proven that our conscious thought is only ever in the present a maximum of 47% which is unhealthy (proven by Harvard University)

 

To be in the “being mode” which is far more healthy we must be fully present and this has amazing restorative properties.

 

For me it’s like opening a tap where negative stress and pressure can drain out. But be assured you don’t have to stay consciously present continually.

 

If you did how would you ever plan anything or remember things?

 

So please remember talking about mindfulness and actually doing mindfulness are two very different things and can be learned with ease by going on training courses, reading books or youtube videoas to name but a few.

.

The following video in some way explains how to be more present and not add a second onto your day.

Yes part of mindfulness is non religious meditation but there is also a whole host of other things that make mindfulness easier to do than meditation but they are for other blog posts.

 

Thanks again for blogging with me on mindfulness and I hope this has helped. So keep tuned in for regular blog posts on mindfulness over the coming months.

 

Please feel free to comment below and share this post.

Is Mindfulness Your Swiss Army Knife Of Mental Performance?

Some People Talk About Mindfulness As If It’s The New Kid On The Block And It’s NOT!

Can Mindfulness Be Your Swiss Army Knife Of Mental Performance?

 

In fact it first appeared in 1979 and has really came to the fore in recent years because of the facts and scientific data we now have.

 

With the release of modern studies the efficacy of mindfulness has really made it more and more popular within homes and workplaces because of what we now know to be true.

 

In 2010 Harvard University carried out a study which proved that in general people think 46.9% outside of the present moment which is not healthy at all!

 

This has been termed the “Monkey Mind” where it is wandering and ill at ease or ruminating and creates stress.

Mindfulness Is Good For You If You Have Troubles Or Are Perfectly Fine!

 

Yes you don’t have to be in need of a tonic or a so called pick me up to benefit from it. Yes it’s good for unwell people and also people who are at the top of their game equally.

What Is Mindfulness In A Nut Shell?

Can Mindfulness Be Your Swiss Army Knife Of Mental Performance?

 

Mindfulness is a non religious and non threatening form of meditation in its simplest terms that can change brain activity by encouraging present moment observational awareness.

Some Very Simple Science Facts About Mindfulness

 

  1. Mindfulness positively affects the Amygdala which controls fear, anxiety and stress.
  2. Mindfulness positively affects the Hippocampus which controls learning and memory.
  3. Mindfulness positively affects the DMN (Default Mode Network) which is responsible for the wandering mind and decreases its activity.

Is It Time To Get This Into Workplaces like Schools?

 

Ever noted how this is now in schools quite prolifically?

Then why is it not mainstreaming at work considering the following:

  • £1.24 billion loss each year to business from stress.
  • Stress affects 1 in 5 employees.
  • Stress is the single biggest cause of sickness in the UK.

Considering how much time you spend at work and the ripple effect it has within the larger whole of your life then it’s worthy to consider is it not?

So Why Is Mindfulness Believed To Be So Good Then?

Can Mindfulness Be Your Swiss Army Knife Of Mental Performance?

It has a significant effect on anxiety and depression in the first instance and if you think about that it will make perfect sense to you when you read on.

To fuel depression or anxiety you have to be preoccupied with the past or worrying about the future.

With mindfulness you can apply a level of control by being fully present more than you ever have been which takes you out of future or past thoughts and reduces stress and a mind that is wandering unhappily.

What Is The Down Side of Mindfulness?

 

Absolutely nothing it is 100% safe!

Just on a last point whats your upside after reading this?

 

 

Thanks for blogging with me again and I hope you enjoy the editorial.

Are you connected with your mindfulness mojo?

mindfulness

Are you connected with your mindfulness mojo?

I was in the shower today and it struck me how incredible the smell of the shower gel was on my hands. This may seem a bit weird me even commenting on this and actually taking the time to even express it.

Well here’s the point! How often do you just rush about just functioning and superficially servicing your body rather than connecting with it?

Many people will probably be thinking what’s he on about has he lost it! Well here’s the reality of what’s been proven in our society. Almost 47% of our conscious thought is not in the present. You may be saying “big deal, so what” and that’s pretty normal too if there is such a thing as normal these days!

Good mental health is on the decline and that’s fact. Anxiety is on the up and so is depression. Stress is burning people out and we just think its normal these days. There I go again like a broken record “these days”.

Well let me let you into a growth industry and it’s mindfulness which is proving to be the guiding light for many. Mindfulness takes a little daily practice it’s true and for me the concept is very simple!

Stop – experience – relax – absorb – energise – continue.

In my own experience I realised that the mind had almost became an organic super computer that had gotten way too big for it’s boots draining my physical batteries.

So what’s the antidote? Are you ready for another big secret? Simplicity in itself is the answer!

It’s all about Smelling the shower gel, feeling the hot shower jet on your back, listening to your inner voice that says “Ahh that feels really good” and looking at the water coming out of the shower as it hits your face and body!

Do you get my point here? Enjoying the sensations from the body and taking the time to fully experience them can be truly enlightening. Hollistically this reconnection between the mind body and spirit holding us in the moment is a representation of mindfulness.mindfulness

Isn’t it so simple that thoroughly enjoying experiences can recharge your positive mental health batteries
and it’s 100% free? Yes this sounds so simple and easy because it is when you stop and think about it!

Here is a short list of things to consider that will improve your life if you dare to do them regularly…

  • Smelling a flower
  • Savouring  a square of chocolate without chewing
  • Watching a child play
  • Listening intently to your favourite piece of music with earphones
  • Feeling the sun on your face

Don’t you think its time to wake up and smell the coffee too??

Thanks for blogging with me and please leave comments as well as shower mindfully on a regular basis……
