I have a very important decision to make. When I consider one of the options I have a very strong emotional reaction. I am not sure if this is my higher-self warning me about making the choice or if it is a limiting belief that I shouldn’t heed. I am worried that I am going to tap away my higher wisdom and make a bad choice. How do I know if I should use EFT/Tapping on this issue?

This is a great question. I am often asked if we can tap something useful away or something harmful in. The great news is we can’t.
When we are using EFT/tapping we are not tapping something in or tapping something out. We are bringing the system back into balance. This being true, we can’t do damage by tapping.
For example, if I have a very strong fear of tigers I can tap to get to the point where I can watch a tiger on TV and no longer get scared. But if I tapped non-stop for the next ten years I would never clear the fear I would feel if I was three feet from a tiger that was growling at me.
In this case balance exists between a natural fear that serves to keep me safe, and an excessive reaction to something that is not a real threat.
The emotions experienced by the questioner above are very useful to him. They could be the higher-self giving very important information or they could be arising from a limiting belief that is not accurate. If he takes the time to tune into these emotions and tap on them, he will achieve one of two possible results: either he will clear a limiting belief, making it easier for him to access a better choice on the matter; or he will be getting more information from his higher self, which will further clarify what is in his best interest.
Regardless of what the root is, by taking the time to tap, we are going are going to much clearer about our decisions.
Also, as a side note, I think it is important to point out that if we are receiving information from our higher-self and it has an emotional charge to it, then we are not congruent with that information. When we are congruent with the information from our higher-self, we see it as truth.
