I Don't Understand Why

Sometimes it feels like the weight of the world is on our shoulders, like we could crumble under the pressure of it all. 
Those are the times that our head spins, we feel like we can't breathe and all we can think about is how bad things are. 

Until we step back, take a deep breath and try to make sense of impossible situations, nothing will improve. 

But, even doing that seems like a daunting task when your world feels gray and murky. When you are in that fight or flight situation, your body sends blood to your muscles for survival. Your brain doesn't function as well as it should to get you through emotional situations.

The tapping script below will force you to take 5 minutes to focus on your breathing, on your thoughts and help you to quiet your mind for a few minutes. You will be surprised how much better you feel after a few rounds of tapping. 

Change the words to make it fit for your situation so it feels right for you. Repeat as often as necessary to keep you grounded and in control.

Leave a comment below to let me know how your mood/feelings changed.

 If you are new to tapping please visit the "Introduction to Tapping" tab at the top of this page for a diagram and a short 4 minute "how to" video by Jessica Ortner. 

Start with the "KC" or karate chop point as shown on the diagram
