Tapping for healing is self-explanatory is it not? As the name implies, all you need to do is tap the desired energy and meridian points on the body to achieve the outcome you are seeking, correct? Well, this may be correct for some but it is not a 100% accurate assessment of how all tapping techniques processes work. There can be other elements added to the mix and these elements could have a significant impact on whether or not you attain the desired outcome.
One such addition to the process would be the inclusion of positive affirmations. As the name implies, as you tap on the proper meridian points of the body, you would make a positive and helpful affirmation regarding your healing.
For example, if you wished to reduce pain in your leg, you would perform the appropriate tapping will affirming “I will live a pain free life.” The inclusion of such positive affirmations to the mix is not exactly complicated or difficult to engage in. Yet, many dismiss the inclusion of positive affirmations and such a casual dismissal is unwise to say the least. There is nothing to lose from making positive affirmations and much to gain.
Be Positive. Negative Affirmations Barely Ever Work
Just take the appropriate steps to ensure your positive affirmations are indeed positive. Negative motivation is rarely helpful and those who employ such strategies will likely be disappointed because negative motivation rarely works. Saying “This will improve now or my life will always suffer needless pain” is such a downer that it is doubtful you can draw a positive outcome from it at all. So, stick with affirmations which are positive in their nature.
Whether discussing positive or negative sentiments, naysayers may note that making a “mere” verbal affirmation is insignificant. Why bother with making statements at all when it is the actual tapping on the meridian points that is truly valuable? Again, such shortsightedness does not help the cause of healing. To leave affirming statements off the table when seeking to heal via tapping can make the process of healing a bit more difficult than it needs to be.
It is no secret that where the mind goes the body will likely follow. Affirmations of a positive nature are intended to enhance the likelihood your body experiences and undergoes desired helpful changes when performed in concert with tapping techniques.
Tapping Meridian Points Is Most Important
Obviously, positive affirmations cannot take the place of the actual tapping on the meridians. Nor will positive affirmations be able to overcome any “misses” if the correct meridian points are not tapped. This is not the purpose of the affirmations and this leads to the inaccurate assumption that the positive affirmations are of no value. To take such an attitude would do little more than completely remove the more valuable aspects of positive affirmations from the tapping technique equation.
When you are tapping on your meridian points, you are taking steps to alter the energy flow that runs through the meridians. Obviously, you will want the alteration in energy flow to be of a positive nature. By adding affirmations to the equation, you may enhance the positive aspect of the energy flow through the body. The benefits to this could turn out to be quite pronounced which, in turn, could mean that whatever holistic benefit that you seek could be more likely attained.
You are employing tapping techniques for the sole purpose of attaining a desirable outcome. It would make logical sense that you would like to enhance the healing process since this will result in the desired improvements you are seeking in your mental and physical wellbeing.
