I’ve been tapping with Essential Oils for about 6 months now!
I probably have been doing this even longer than I realize. You too have been in away probably been tapping without even realizing! How often do you hold your temples when you feel pressure in your head? Press your fingers to your upper lip? put your hand on your collar bone? Do you ever feel yourself pressing those places and feeling relief or trying to find relief?
There are many ways to practice and experience EFT (tapping for short). There is a sequence but there is also short cuts when in the moment and not having the time for a full sequence. Furthermore, tapping doesn’t have to be just about a negative emotion needing to be released. It can also be about appreciation and thankfulness. It can be part of prayer.
To learn more about EFT and the science behind it check out the Tapping Solutions site. It’s a very informative site. And full of great info, especially for beginners.
There can be so many sources out there that practice and teach others about EFT. For me making sure I have a Christian perspective was very important. When we start dealing with energy work and healing it is important that the person I am learning from and getting info from is Christ centered.
How does Essential Oils fit into this picture!?
Essential oils are supportive with physical issues and very effective for emotional problems as well. Essential Oils are energy….we are energy! There is plenty of evidence and backing to help us understand that Essential Oils do provide emotional release and support in healing.
So if Essential Oils can help us release emotions locked up inside of us and tapping releases emotions locked up inside of us via the meridian points…..then why wouldn’t we combine the two together!
Here is a basic understanding about how to combine the two together.
Once you have acknowledged the emotion you are struggling with rate your discontent, your angst with this emotion. Pick the oil that is going to address that emotion. You can diffuse that oil while you tap or put the oil on the tapping points or at the very least on your finger tips that you will be tapping with.
Now you are going to focus on what this emotion is. This doesn’t mean you stew on it, it means you are going to bring it to the conscience, acknowledge that it is there rather than stuffing it down.
Then you do your set up statement. It can be as simple as, “Even though I feel (fill in blank), I completely and totally love and accept myself.” This is said 3 times while tapping on the karate chop point. Now you are ready to start doing the sequence through all the points (The Tapping Solution has a fabulous 2 minute video about the points). By the time you have done 5 rounds you need to assess if your emotion has decreased, if you feel energy having opened up and flowing better. Some signs that things are shifting is if you find yourself yawning a lot, if you actually feel emotions welling up and crying, your body starts to relax, and so many other ways. Tapping is a chance for you to really check in with yourself and start noticing all these little ways your body tries to talk to you!
Don’t have any emotions to clear out? Or don’t think you do?! Then just began each day with: Thank you, thank you, thank you Lord for another beautiful day! Thank you for creating me to be wonderfully beautifully made!
