I discovered this incredible tool that I’m about to share with you, out of pure necessity. I would wake up in the mornings and feel so many emotions coursing through my body. There were so many times where I felt dizzy, ungrounded, angry and overall not good. SO… out of necessity I would sit my wild butt down on my meditation cushion and tend to myself.
What started happening intuitively as I sat with myself was tapping—tapping on my body, my heart, my arms, my stomach, I noticed all of the stagnant emotions would start moving and releasing. I moved my body around, made noises and did whatever felt good. Then just like that, an alternative to the traditional tapping technique was born that I like to call it Intuitive Tap.
Listen to Your Body, Not Your Mind
My new method is birthed from the traditional “tapping” technique. The traditional technique is pretty well known in the mainstream now, which is awesome because it really works! The traditional technique of tapping involves tapping on specific points on the body and repeating phrases along with it. What I do has a little bit of my own twist—a variation that feels good for me, so I recommend you choose what feels good for you as well.
With Intuitive Tap, the focus is on using your own intuition to feel where on your body wants your loving tap to move the energy. Your intuition will tell you if you need to stay in a place for a while and tap or move quickly over many areas, whatever feels right for you. You also may want to tap fast or slow. The key here is to feel into your body and let it guide you. If you can focus your attention enough on the body and less on the mind, it will. Once the energy starts moving, you may want to make sounds, make circle motions with your body or shake a little. Again, allow your body to guide you with what it wants—not your mind—which can sometimes take a little practice, so no worries!
Make It Special
After tapping, moving, and making sounds for a while you will start to notice a shift. You may notice a feeling of stillness, happiness, or a feeling of being more connected to yourself. This is what we want! Sometimes it may happen after a short time of tapping and others a longer time depending on where you are at—this is all perfect. You are simply moving the stagnant energy in your body that is ready to move.
This is your sacred time with yourself, so make it extra special with sage, candles, your yoga mat or whatever makes you feel supported. It’s such a beautiful process of unfoldment so INJOY, lovelies!
