SFT: Tapping to honor balance
Have you heard of EMT - Emotional Freedom Technique - also referred to as tapping? We offer a Proactive Growth twist called SFT - Spiritual Freedom Technique. Here's an SFT tapping exercise designed to appreciate the balance in our lives; the balance of the good in the bad and the bad in the good.
The Polarized Universe
In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world; how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.
Tapping for Balance
In order to experience all that life has to offer, we must learn to value both the light and the dark, the masculine and feminine, love and judgement and all the other opposing forces in Nature. Start with this inspiring belief:
I choose to open my mind to the gift of light and the gift of darkness.
Take a moment to reflect on this statement. Pick a number between 0 and 10 that describes how strongly you believe the statement to be true, with 10 being absolutely true and 0 meaning the statement holds no truth for you.
Start tapping on the side of your hand (like a karate chop) while repeating the following affirmation three times:
Even though I am still learning, I deeply and completely accept myself.
Proceed through the tapping points in the order listed in the first column below, beginning with Eyebrows and ending with Top of the Head. At each point, repeat the associated phrases in the middle column, then repeat a second time through repeating the associated phrases in the last column.
Once you've tapped through each column, check back in to ask yourself where you now reflect on the inspiring belief on the scale of 0 to 10.
Do you notice a shift? Acknowledge whatever shifts that occur, along with self-critical thoughts, images or feelings that may arise. Chose to simply love and accept yourself while tapping.
