We know that the most effective way to tap is when we are able to be as specific as possible with the issue at hand.
But a common misconception about this idea is that tapping is only useful if we are specific. But that is not what the statement above says. It says “as specific as possible”. There are times when we can’t be super specific because what we are feeling isn’t super specific!
Sometimes our experience is a collection of emotions and feelings that are much more general OR we are processing so much at once we can’t be specific about any one issue or aspect.
When that happens I use what I call the Container Process. It’s a tool I regularly use with my clients.
It is perfect for:
- when you are experiencing lots of emotions at once
- when you can’t pin down exactly what you want to tap on
- letting go of everything at the end of the day
Also, you will be able to master the process after hearing it just two or three times so you won’t need the audio if you want to do it on your own.
