One of my favorite aspects of the tapping community is how willing people are to share their wisdom and experience. Recently I asked a number of practitioners I admire about how they approach healing, client work, and their own journey. Below are some of my favorite answers to one of those questions. Make sure you check out all five questions]
If you were to start your own healing journey over again what would you do differently?
I would have moved at a faster pace and more consistently sought support and assistance along the way. I truly appreciated my first therapist, who helped me through a divorce crisis, but I didn’t continue ‘doing the work’ – I think I thought I was good to go. In a long second bout of therapy, I got out of danger. If I had it to do over, I think I’d appreciate and pursue the value of great and artful support to help me evolve and thrive along the way vs waiting until I hit a crisis point to seek help.

Less study, more practice. In the early days, I read every newsletter, attended classes, poured over each version of Gary Craig’s EFT Manual. I truly wish I had simply tapped more. Instead of trying to “get it right”, if I had tapped more and been present in my body, the energy of EFT would have shown me what I needed to learn. I would have gotten to know myself and my own energy field better, faster, and more effectively. Going from head to body has been imperative for my own healing. Kris Ferraro
Do more of my own personal formation and work around self-discovery and self-possession. Jake Khym
I’d get myself into a regular routine and maintain it. I’ve learned that although routine is boring and sometimes feels like a slog, it’s important for retraining our nervous systems and is worth maintaining. I was always looking for the excitement of feeling blissful, not understanding that the work is gradual, non-linear, and builds on itself if you keep doing it. Ange Finn
I would have liked to reach the understanding that lack of money is a symptom of something else sooner rather than later. I spent a lot of time and money trying to make more money when instead it would have been to understand what money meant to me and what the lack of it was protecting me from. Rod Sherwin
