Sometimes when I’m tapping I yawn a lot. Why do I yawn during tapping, and is it a good or bad thing?

Fear not! Yawning is good news.
There are a number of common physical reactions to tapping, such as feeling:
- Light and free
- Very relaxed
- Long signs
When we are doing tapping, especially around an emotional issue, I have found yawning means a great deal of energy is being moved. So when I see lots of yawning, I know progress is being made.
It is important to pay attention to your body. Lots of yawning also mean your body has less energy than when you started. If you feel very tired, it’s best to tap more later.
ALSO, if you are feeling drowsy after a tapping session you shouldn’t drive or do anything that requires intense concentration until your energy level is up again.
Remember, if your body is feeling pain or responding in a way that is not comfortable, stop tapping and consult a medical professional.
