Discover The Incredible You
into the habit of feeling a certain way, especially when we attempt to update our beliefs and improve
how we feel.
What we believe and how we feel have to be aligned for progress to be made i.e. there needs to be
coherence between our brains and hearts. I’m about to share with you an extremely powerful method
for removing unwanted feelings associated with an issue so that they can’t be activated again. With
regular use, you will be able to predominantly feel good as you begin to update your beliefs to support
the life you truly desire.
Introducing Meridian Tapping
How does it work?
Dr Bruce Rosen of Harvard Medical School experimented with needling the acupuncture point on the
hand known to help ease pain. What he found was that stimulating this acupressure point actually
caused immediate blood flow changes to the amygdala and areas of the brain that relate to mood, pain
and cravings. The reduction of blood flow to these areas leads to an increase in endorphins – the brain’s
natural pleasure chemicals. Other research within this field has found without doubt that certain
acupressure points correspond with precise areas in the brain. When our brain’s limbic system is
activated, our nervous system responds by activating our fight/flight response which is associated with
stress and primal feelings of danger. Therefore by stimulating certain acupressure points we can easily
reduce the impact of negative and persistent emotional patterns which may have been causing stress on
our nervous systems for years. Meridian tapping is one such method that is freely available for us to use.
It allows us to break limiting emotional patterns that prevent us from expressing our potential.
Basically the technique I’m about to share with you works by using your four fingertips to tap the
appropriate acupressure point whilst thinking of the offending emotion, issue or pain. The stimulation of
the acupressure point then sends signals to the brain and the neuro-pathway associated with this
emotional problem is disrupted. Instead, neuro-chemical endorphins are released and the e-motional
energy is diffused so the neuro-pathway will not activate in the same way again. This is an extremely
powerful tool which is available all the time as it requires nothing more than an awareness of the
acupressure points (which are highlighted in the following diagram) and your fingertips!
The Meridian Tapping Sequence
1. To start the process, by rubbing on your sore spot pressure point (see diagram) in a circular
motion. At the same time think of an issue, person or event that is causing you stress or an
emotional reaction. It should provoke an emotional charge or feeling that is undesirable.
2. Rate the level of emotional charge you have when you think about the issue from 1-10, with 10
being high intensity and 1 being not really an issue
3. Rub the sore spot in a circular motion with your fingers. Say to yourself (out loud or in your
head) what issue you have the intent of releasing, e.g. “anxious about business presentation
4. To get rid of the emotional and psychological stress tap each of the 9 acupressure points 10
a. You can tap with either the left or the right hand. Alternatively you can use both hands
to tap each side.
b. You don’t need to tap hard at all – it shouldn’t be uncomfortable!
