9 Ways to Tap into Big Results for Your Clients Freebie: https://www.efttappingmethod.com/9-ways-big-results
Rachel: Hey there, guys. I’m so excited to have my good friend Jason Winters here today. Now, I have done EFT tapping before, but I would say I’m not good at doing it consistently. And Jason is going to get my butt back into the chair of doing it consistently. So without further ado, Jason, can you introduce yourself and your business?
How EFT Tapping Can Change Lives
Jason: I’m Jason Winters. I don’t know when I met you, Rachel, but it’s been a journey. And you were a very integral part of my success. I just want to thank you for that. Well, let me do the quick and dirty version. I started coaching in 2014, I went through IN. So that’s what attracted me to you because we had some similarities there. And I love the work, because my journey was steeped in emotional eating, binge eating all this stuff. But I had all of these issues and trying to manage them when I went through it. I realized that it wasn’t emotional eating, I thought it was just self control, weight loss and things like that. There was a lot of cultural stuff and all of that. So once I started getting into this emotional work, the doors opened. It wasn’t just my eating issues and binge eating. It was my money issues. It was relationship issues. It was wide open.
So here I am now and I love tapping. I’ve gotten several certifications with EFT, it’s changed my money situation, my whole entire money story has changed. My relationship with food has changed, my relationship with myself, which was the number one thing has changed, and then how I interact and deal with other people, shame and the fears and the guilt and all that stuff is gone.
Rachel: Because a lot of times I hear that people are Oh, it’s gone. And I don’t have that anymore. There’s no emotional eating, or there’s no stress. That’s it. That’s all lies, right?
Jason: What it is, is that we understand and we realize that in life, things are going to happen. You’re going to have bumps, the ebbs and flows are normal, and they’re natural. This is part of my story, because there’s so many cultural beliefs that I held. And I held on to them tightly. And even though there’s still some remnants of them in my system, what I recognize now is that this is a process, it’s a journey. And that’s why I feel free. It’s not because I don’t have it anymore. It just no longer controls me. And that’s the biggest difference.
There is so much to say, but just summing it up, that’s my story. I do health coaching. I do live coaching, but my focus is really helping other coaches to be able to genuinely express themselves and get through this money stuff and their own personal traumas, because that’s what’s really holding us up in our business. If we didn’t have something holding us back, there would be no reason to not reach your goals.
Tapping As Interception: How To View & Understand EFT
Rachel: I want to say it’s been two and a half years since I’ve done a deep dive. But I really needed to do an overhaul of everything. And the last few years, all this trauma had come up actually during the pandemic and triggered this trauma where I just felt I couldn’t breathe anymore. So I started putting my butt back into therapy, found a really great person to work on, rewiring thoughts, but all of that stress, that impostor syndrome, inner critic, all of that came back up.
And my husband always says to me, Well, when you’re doing that deep work, and you’re so vulnerable, and you’re so raw, that stuff can come up. So I’m really excited for this session that we have together to really talk about how EFT tapping can come in and intercept. That’s the way that I look at it. Come in and say here, there is this practice that you can have that can instantly start to lessen some of these emotions and feelings.
Jason: Absolutely. I think that’s perfect. Because the reason I love that language is because I’ve never really thought of it as that word, intercept. What I think of it as is you’re clearing, right? You’re allowing things to process and it allows you to be but what’s really powerful about that word is that’s what it means to you. And so when we find what that means to me, I need an interception. That’s what I want, that’s what I’m gonna get right?
Rachel: You need an interception.
Jason: Exactly. And it’s what it means to you. You mentioned a pandemic, we’ve gotten so used to this is what you need to eat, or this is how you meditate, or this is what you should do. And really, we have to learn how to customize this healing process for our own being. Until we customize our own healing, it does not matter.
I think being there for our clients in that way, not coming with judgment, not looking down on people.
What Is EFT Tapping?
Rachel: So tell us a little about EFT tapping, and then maybe you can show me or we can find a way to this EFT.
Jason: Yeah, absolutely. So what I love to do is just keep it super simple. It is a stress reduction tool. The way we use it is we’re literally tapping on different parts of our body.
Now in the meridian system, I mean, we’re coaches, so we know that energy flows through the body. So if you think of goosebumps, if you think of chills, if you think of the hairs on the back of your neck standing, if you think of receiving a phone call when no one physically touched you. But after that call, you’re in tears, it could be for good reason. Or it could be for a bad reason. But that way the energy flows throughout our body is through the channels and our system.
So when you go for acupuncture, or acupressure, they’re activating those specific points that relate in that energy system, the spleen or the gut, or whatever it is. So when we’re tapping, instead of tapping on a specific point, we’re tapping on the energy channel. So the junction of where it meets.
It’s really quick, it’s really fast. I’m showing the tapping points, we’re going to guide you through them as we talk as well. But the reason that is so powerful is when we think of anything that we’re going through in life, the stress, the fear, you think about what us as coaches are really going through the pandemic. We’re still recovering from that because a lot of us have not addressed the pandemic.
You think of tech challenges. You talk a lot about tech challenges and keeping things simple. But if we really peel back the onion to tech challenges, when we peel it back to charging, when we peel it back to this imposter syndrome, it’s really fear, and it’s our worth. So our own value, our personal value is tied up in tech issues. Who knew? Because I don’t think that I’m good enough to get through this. This is the thing that’s going to make or break my business. That’s not what we necessarily think. But that’s energetically how we’re holding tight challenges.
Rachel: Well, it can be so easy for coaches to get caught up in this one part, when the truth is there’s always a solution. There’s always a video to watch. There may be something you’re not comfortable with. But there has to be practice in that to be able to get to that next place.
Jason: Yes. 100%. What I call that is being resourceful. So tapping helps you to be resourceful. When you’re having tech challenges, it helps you to calm these parts of the brain, the amygdala, you’re in fight or flight when it’s tech challenges, because it’s like, Oh, my goodness, you have to speak. Say you have to go up to speak or give a presentation or you’re on a summit or you always have to do your first workshop. All of that causes a visceral response.
Even when you’ve been speaking. I speak every week. I do public speaking, speaking in front of 1000s of people at a time, I still feel nervous. And that’s normal. If you start feeling nervous, something’s wrong. But it’s when things become so you don’t have any control. We should feel nervous. It keeps us humble, right?
It’s when it paralyzes you, when you cannot press the Go Live button, or there is no longer positive procrastination to writing your book. It’s procrastination that’s holding you back. It’s not that I need to put this off because I need to think a little bit more. This is like, Oh, I was supposed to write that book last year. That’s not positive procrastination.
A lot of these visceral responses come from the past. That’s what the amygdala is all about – from past experiences, or it’s trying to keep you protected. So how do we access that safely? We use tapping. Literally, we’re communicating to the brain that while I’m thinking about this traumatic thing, and I’m not talking about it, being abused as a child, I’m not talking about those things. We go there eventually when it’s safe.
What I’m talking about is just the idea of facing these tech issues, just the idea of charging your worth. That’s the entry point to our traumas. So when we can think about that, while giving our brain a signal that hey it’s safe. It’s okay. You’re good, it’s communicating. You think about your children. You tap in between your eyebrows. Yeah, I’m talking, out of the side of the eye.
Going Through A Live EFT Tapping Experience
Rachel: So what do you want to do?
Jason: Okay, let’s do it. Alright, so I want you, Rachel to think you’re going to be my echo. I want you to think of something, you don’t have to share it. But think of something that you would to work on. Maybe it’s your next level. And this is really good, especially when I work with people who are very successful, you are, it’s the next level, right? So you pick that what that is for you. And I want you to we’re going to do some resistance tapping if that’s okay. All right. So I want you to come to mind with something a goal that you have, this is what you want. Maybe it’s by the end of the year, maybe it’s something that’s maybe it’s almost there, I don’t know, I’ll let you pick that I would say and I’m more all be transparent with ever.
Rachel: I’ve had all these different signature talks, but I feel really honing in on getting better at my speaking skills, I have a tendency to speak and it’s all encompassing, instead of speaking to be linear. So I really want to work on this. I know that it’s stepping in the way of me going to that next level.
Jason: Okay, perfect. So tell me when you think about your speaking skills, and the fact that you’re going to get there to where you want to be to the next level, on a zero to 10 scale, meaning 10 is, I’m definitely going to get there and it’s going to be easy and it’ll be soon. Zero meaning Oh, my goodness, I don’t even want to think about it –where would you say you’re at?
Rachel: I would say I’m at a five. And it goes back to childhood stuff, of not being smart enough not being good enough. And then somebody told me, Oh, you’re not so linear. So it’s been that in my business as well. But I’m trying to get back to that place where I don’t care what others think. And to really hold on to what I used to do so eloquently and easily.
Global Tapping: What It Is & How To Move Through It
Jason: Okay, so let’s do some global tapping, because we have a lot there. Let’s go on the side of the hand here. And I want you to just tune into your body right now. And tell me where you feel that when I say not good enough? Or when you say that? Where do you feel that in your body? In your throat? And how uncomfortable is that on a zero to 10? 10 being extremely uncomfortable.
Rachel: I would say it’s a 5.
Jason: Okay, 5. I just want to pause for a second just to share that. It’s no coincidence that this feeling in the body, a lot of people carry in their stomach when it’s time to go live or give a speech or something. That’s how we’re actually carrying that energy in the body.
So on the side of the hand, you can just repeat after me and we’re tapping on this fleshy part of the side of the hand side of the palm. Yeah. And then we’re gonna start tapping on the top of the head, just so we can give everybody a visual of what we’re doing.
And then right on the eyebrow, right with the beginning of the eyebrow. Start with double tap or single tap. So you can do either one. But I typically show people both. So it’s right with the eyebrow start. And then on the side of the eye. So if you were wearing glasses, this is where it sits on the bone. And then staying on that bone, we’re gonna go under the eye. And then under the nose. And then on the chin. And then on the collarbone. And then under the arm. So if you are wearing a bra, it’s right at the bra strap. For men, it’s right along with the nipple, right under the arm there. So go on to the side of the hand. I want you to just repeat after me.
Even though I just don’t feel good enough. I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
We’re going to do two more rounds.
Even though I just don’t feel good enough, that’s really the root of what’s holding me from my next level. I choose to relax now and I’m okay.
One more time.
Even though I, at my core, I just don’t feel good enough. I choose to love and respect myself anyway. Because you also love to choose that.
So just tapping the top of the head, just being with that feeling in the throat. And just notice that feeling in your throat an eyebrow point, we can do both.
I’m just not good enough. Side of the eye. I’m just not good enough. Under the eye. I’m not good enough.And that’s in my throat. Under the nose. I just don’t feel worthy. On the chin. I’ve had some success, but go on to the next level. And the collarbone.
What do you feel about that? Rachel?
Rachel: It’s very scary.
Jason: So that throat area, notice that. What number would you give it?
Rachel: You mean now since we did that? A three.
Jason: So this comfort dropped two points.
Rachel: When we started tapping, I could feel my body just calm down. And that software stuff has always been with me my whole life. I felt it was the part that I didn’t charge enough and I remember getting to that part. What’s been interesting, there’s been a lot of change in the last few years for me, and working on this trauma therapy. And it’s almost re-invited, or reopened the door for some old stuff that I thought was there anymore. Y
Jason: Here’s where a lot of people start with tapping. And of course, this is a deeper thing. But what sometimes coaches don’t realize is the importance of getting to the powerful aspects of these things. So we tapped on some things and you came down at what 10%? I’m not the best at math.
But for us to get to the root cause, we need to get to that story on that deeper level of what it smelled like, what it looked like, what color was the room? What did their voice sound like? What senses are involved? Because when we get to that level, that’s where the true healing happens. When we tap around those things, it’s very deep.
Rachel: And it’s so powerful, because that’s where it’s like okay, there are no more memories, or sometimes a few memories, but we can start with one?
The Difference Between Big & Little T- Trauma
Jason: Yeah, you start with the biggest one, or the most intense. And that leads me to another thing is this big T little T trauma. I used to believe in that big T little T. It’s really how your body absorbed or didn’t. So how you experience the trauma.
I work with people who were raped, for instance. And it was really that abandonment was the aspect. When their dad left. That really wasn’t the fact that they raped. They partly enjoyed it. Not to be in any way insensitive, but this is exactly what happened. She was just like, oh, it was really that my dad abandoned me. And that’s what I felt at the end – abandoned.
Rachel: So we don’t know what our body’s actually holding on to exactly or how many moments.
Jason: Exactly. So we need to get to that trauma. Somebody told me that it was traumatic this way, but we don’t really know until we sit and we’re like, oh, actually, this is what it was. The brain can’t access it because it’s too scary.
A lot of times when we start with this global tapping, we would go deeper into that memory and really give it a color and age and really go through each of those and tap it out. And even if you’re making it up, I always tell my clients because especially with people who are not feelers, I work with and my wife is not a feeler, she’s very in her brain. It’s very hard for her to come so I do a lot of making up with her.
Even if you had to make it up, what color would it be? Even if you had to make it up, what feeling does it give your body? You’re not so attached to it because it’s like, Oh, I’m just playing make believe. But really this subconscious is pulling up exactly what we need.
Rachel: Are we still doing the same tapping when you’re going deeper?
Jason: So it depends. We go through all the points so that when you’re new to tapping, you’re not missing any points. But a lot of times, we will just go to the heart center or under the eye with that stomach meridian and at different points. After working with clients for a few times, I can just tell they’re really clearing because they’ll get to a point where they may start crying. So I can tell that that particular point may have activated something, and I will just stay there a little longer.
So this is also good for anybody if they’re feeling anxiety that day, and really having that quiet time after to reflect what was this original memory? You can do that self-reflection and journal through it and get clear.
Rachel: Why should you stay tapping and keep doing it?
Jason: So it’s different if you’re in a session versus whether you’re doing it on your own. Sometimes you can get to something that’s really, really heavy. And you can actually spiral. And so it just depends on where you are with this level of work.
But journaling is super powerful. We have something called a Personal Peace Procedure. So every day, you’re just making a long list of things that you constantly want to work on, or things that come up so that you don’t forget, because for me, it’s better to work on these deeper issues before I’m triggered, not when. So that when a pandemic hits, I’m relatively able to function.
Everybody was hit by the pandemic. And when something really big happens, you don’t want to go into a trigger because that’s where you end up getting paralyzed. The one thing I’ve always respected about myself is that no matter what the trouble was, or the pain or the fear, I found a way to move past that. And that’s the one thing, for anybody listening who doesn’t know me that great, it’s all these things I’ve talked about. They’ve always been a problem. But I still showed up and I hit that live button. I still did that recording of that workshop.
I think of coaches, like you or anyone else, it’s the same thing. You can have fear. But you don’t want that to drown your brain. We have to be resourceful because life is coming.
And I thought I had to show up perfect. I thought, Oh, if I’m an emotional eating coach, I can’t be doing any emotional eating, or if I’m working with other coaches and helping them implement tapping, I have to do it perfectly. I don’t want to be judged. But all that’s my issue.
My takeaway is, I realize how selfish it is to hold back from people because I’m thinking about myself and how I’m going to be viewed. And there are always going to be hurt people out there who are going to hurt people. So don’t worry about that. But in order to not worry about that, I have to do my own work. If I’m not doing my own work, I’m going to constantly worry about what other people are thinking and those judgments. And I’m going to be judgmental because the judgments that you pass on to other people are the judgments that you pass on yourself. And what you assume everybody else is judging you buy.
How Often Can You Start Tapping?
Rachel: Do you have to tap throughout the day? Or do you have a morning tapping and a night tapping?
Jason: I do morning and night and then I tap throughout the day. But if I’m super busy, I may not. I can tell sometimes if I’m not doing my work because I’ll be in a tapping session with a client. And I might get triggered a certain way. I know how to pull myself back. But we’re all going through the same things. But when I wake up, I do my tapping in the morning. And it’d be just five minutes and I can be doing other things too. It’s getting my butt out of and just starting and
This is a thing with tapping and breathwork and all the other things. If we do it – I used to tell my clients to do these deep sessions and stuff – all we need to do is communicate with our brain. It doesn’t mean we have to go deep into the childhood stuff every single day.
There’s a piece when we’re coaching, the integration has to happen. Meaning you have a session and then the following week you have another session. The growth happens in between. And that’s where the integration has happened. That’s where people can absorb and process.
If we’re doing super deep work, when our body is saying, hey, I need a break. It can be counterintuitive. So yes, tap every day, but just the act of tapping is communicating with the brain. That’s what the science shows.
So depending on where you are, a session every week can help. And also working with a coach. We can do a lot on our own. I always say we have that ability to heal. But sometimes we need an outside person to coach us to that next place.
So give yourself grace and evaluate, what are my goals? Where do I want to be? Do I have some deep stuff that I really want to work on? If I work with a coach for six months or whatever, will I really see a transformation? Do I have daily stress that I just want to manage? I can start tapping and see how it flows.
Coaches always need coaches. If you’re not having a coach, I feel you shouldn’t be one because who’s bringing you up? Who’s holding you accountable? And it wasn’t until I said, You know what, I’m not going without a coach anymore. Or when you’re like, I’m going to therapy, whatever it is, if you’re not doing something, then you get stagnant. So figure out what you need.
Why Everyone Needs To Start Tapping
Rachel: It’s hard for me to say you need this, but I really do believe everybody needs this. I say that. But that’s because I’ve seen you tap this entire time that we’ve been taught.
Jason: Yes, keep in touch with your brain. It’s just communication in my brain, I’m flowing. I’m trusting in what I’m saying, I’m not nervous to talk with you, but it’s certain points. Am I gonna say the right thing? I’m dyslexic and all this stuff. So it’s just it keeps me grounded. It keeps me focused on you. I’m engaged. I’m resourceful with things. I trust myself.
I didn’t have that, Rachel. I didn’t trust myself. I was black, overweight, not smart. No degree. And now, it’s just the story. All of that stuff might still be true. But it does not mean anything to me. It doesn’t control my life. And I’m able to move forward in the direction that I want.
Rachel: So we went through the tapping. How do you come up with the verbiage to say while you are doing it?
Jason: Oh, really good question. Okay. I love to encourage people to do tapping rants. So one of the things when I am asked the question again, because I want to talk about this. And then I want to talk about a different way.
So the first one is tapping rant. The reason I want to talk about affirmations is because of negative things that you say to yourself, a lot of people don’t believe in saying the negative, because it’s like, I don’t want to send that down in my brain. But when you’re tapping, you’re actually giving your brain a communication. And you’re being honest with yourself. So that’s why it’s happening. Rant is so powerful, because the things that we push down, what they do is they pop up in a different way.
So let’s just use “I’m not good enough,” for instance. I’m not good enough. Now, each of us listening to this, unless you’re a robot, has that belief in some area of their life, that I’m not good enough, right? So instead of saying I’m not good enough, I want to say something positive. I’m not gonna say I’m not good enough.
Well, what ends up happening is when we go to touch the go live button, or when we go to do the tech work, that’s when I’m not good enough is gonna show up, it’s the wrong time for it to show up. Right? We need I’m not good enough to show up when it’s time to do the work on that. And then instead of pushing it away, you actually pull it closer and say, in what areas? You get very curious about not being good enough, right? Then you can tap and rant in anger, my parents or I’m not good enough, whatever it is. You’re just really releasing all this negative stuff so it doesn’t stick.
If you have positive affirmations, it’s taking duct tape and putting it on a pile of dirt and then trying to stick it to something. You need that duct tape with that powerful stickiness so that those powerful affirmations can stick and stay with you.
When you’re doing your rant do you also at the end of it, say, but I love and accept myself completely?
Jason: It’s going to come up, and you’ll know when it’s time to switch. Your body is going to shift. Because a lot of us are dealing with anger. And underneath the anger is sadness.
I was an angry, angry kid, an angry young adult. I remember somebody saying to me, it was a man who really changed my life. He was a priest. And he had come out through his own journeys and struggles. And he was like, you are the angriest person I’ve ever met, which really means high-status person. And I remember he had given us an exercise where we took a bat to a punching bag. I remember just punching hard, and then breaking into tears. I cried the hardest that I ever cried and I was 25.
So underneath that level of sadness what we’re also looking for is compassion. Because that’s how we know that things are starting to shift when we have compassion for ourselves, or other people who have done things to us. It’s sad, we become sad for them and then we know that, okay, this is processing and an amazing grieving process.
I grew up with a lot of chaos happening in my house, divorce parents and just chaos with step parents, without getting into too much detail. But it really took me a long time not to feel empty, and to grieve what I’m not going to get and to realize that I can be that parent to my kids. But it’s still hard. And I still felt unsafe, certain days, and felt a little sad.
Rachel: And I think that that’s perfect, because we have been sold this idea that you should look this way you should feel this way. And sadness is a part of life.
How To Come Up With The Verbiage Of Tapping
Jason: So I want to just talk about at least one other way to come up with the verbiage because that’s really getting it out. Another thing that I would recommend is, it just depends on what you want to work on for yourself. If you’re dealing with anxiety, then you can make a list of all the things that you’re feeling anxious about.
Or in the morning list out what’s going to happen, as if it’s really going to happen. I’m gonna go this and then my boss is going to get on my nerves, and then my client is going to cancel, and then this is going to happen. You can really, because that’s what that anxious mind is always in the forefront saying what’s going to happen, right?
Or it could be a goal. We did a little bit of research, I think we did resistance tapping where it’s, “I want to make six figures by the end of next year and it’s your belief around that. Everything that you have to say about it. It’s not going to happen, it’s going to be too hard. I’m going to have to sacrifice time with my family. My son is so young, and I don’t want to be away from him. I can do it, but it’s going to be a big cost. My relationships are going to be on the line or my friends, I’m not going to be this core store.
Rachel: Yeah, these core beliefs.
Jason: Absolutely, Rachel. And so when you write these down, that’s your language to tap around. Because that’s what’s in your belief system. It’s your thoughts. It’s in your belief system. And now even though you can take them line by line, give them a number, give them a rating. This belief, I believe this at a level eight, even though I believe in my core, that in order for me to make six figures by the end of next year, I’m going to have to sacrifice my family, I’m going to have to sacrifice my friends. I gotta do all of this stuff. I’m going to be overwhelmed by the tech, whatever it is that you believe we’ve got to get that out. We need to put a number to it. If you so desire.
Where do you feel that in your body? Because it’s there. If you don’t feel it in your body, don’t force it. We start trying to feel it in our body. Just sit and relax. And then we can tap on that. Here’s a little pro tip for that. Even though I know this isn’t my body because this is the level I’m at and I can’t feel it anywhere in my body. I just choose to relax. And I deeply and completely love.
You’re giving, “I love and accept myself or I believe in myself.” And some people are not there to say I love and accept myself. You’re making a choice that even though this is here, this is not this is the truth of me. Right? Even through whatever, I am choosing in this moment to love and accept myself, to be there for myself, I’m choosing to relax, I choose to smile, whatever feels right for you. We don’t want to lie or make up stuff. We just want to be with what it is, and what feels good to us.
Because it frees you from the panic and brings you into a place of empowerment. Yes. And this doesn’t mean that the feelings aren’t going to go away or the fear. But it’s to be able to step in that place of empowerment, then have, as you said, choices. Absolutely. You become so resourceful. Because now instead of being in the fear spinning you can catch up with the logical because, let’s face it, we all know the logical brain.
We can all be millionaires, we can all do it. We know that we have all the things, we have the systems, we have coaches, it’s all there. It’s us. It’s not that we can’t do it. It’s energetically, we’re not in alignment with the goal. So once we get in alignment, it’s oh, now I can step in that direction.
Rachel: Oh, I love this. I mean, going through that coaching was so powerful, because I’ll tell you, I had one of those days where I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. It was just one of those days, and I worked all day to ground myself. Yeah, do a gratitude list, all these different things that I do. And I didn’t think to do tapping, but I was thinking I’m going to be seeing Jason. So I’m sure we’re gonna be doing something else. But that was such an amazing session.
Jason: Thank you. I mean, you made the session.
How To Set Up A Tapping Routine That Words For You
Rachel: So tell me, for somebody who’s brand new to tapping, would you suggest starting with a morning or evening routine?
Jason: I would suggest just set your alarm and do it. Just with anything else, it’s just about being consistent with it. I think that one big thing. Just be very gentle. Because we have so much like, Oh, I gotta meditate. I have to do this. I have to do that. This is something that when you integrate it on a regular consistent basis, and with all modalities, there’s so much power.
Be gentle, like water drops on stone, eventually they’ll bore a hole through it. Go exercise more or less, do it daily, but just be so graceful with yourself. This is a gentle, powerful tool that you can use every single day. And you just tap and you’re communicating with your body. It’s giving yourself love. It’s what we need, chill out.
The money is going to come, the stress is going to come, the better relationships are coming and the harder times are coming. It’s all coming in. We do not have control of everything that comes to us. That’s the definition of stress is trying to control that which you can’t. It causes friction. That’s in my book if and when I get that done.
What’s happening, right? So we all have it. We all have limiting beliefs. We all have stuff that we’re working on, and it’s just a matter of being gentle. But to really answer your question, when you where you can find a space on a daily basis. If it’s every morning, just do tapping. And if you are interested in seeing the results, set a powerful intention.
Which I would love to do sometime before we close out today, set that intention and say you know what, I’m going to do this for a month. I don’t know what’s going to come up and then look back on that month and see what intention you sat in. What actually manifested in your life? That sounds like an intention.
Rachel: I would love to commit to you doing this for a month. When I first started doing this many years ago, it was around the age of 25, I worked with an amazing woman who taught me about EFT tapping. And she was like, I don’t care if you’re driving, that you feel a little change in your fist, in your physical, the moment that you feel that anxiety coming, I want you to start tapping. I would be driving and tapping.
Jason: Let’s set that intention before we close up. And I agree with that 100%. I’m tapping all the time. I just feel one thing that my clients say is, Oh, I forgot to tap. Sometimes when we have something that we have to do. It’s hard. It puts that level of pressure, if this is a stress reduction tool, we want to make it so it’s easy.
Rachel: I have all these treatments. I have all these modalities. I’m not using them. I was saying this to my husband. Isn’t it wild how we’ll have resistance to doing something so great for us?
But then I sit there and I talk about it. I’m like, okay, where is this resistance? Why is it coming up? Where is it originating from? Why don’t I want to be good to myself? That’s what usually comes up. Why don’t I feel worth being good to myself?
I took some time off from running and exercising when I was recovering from Adrenal Fatigue. And I was like, Rachel, okay, it’s time to get back into it. It’s only 30 to 45 minutes a day. I had to sit there and re-coach myself to think these are the habits. It’s good for your brain. It makes you happy. Get moving. But I will find excuses. It’s just getting back into that habit of the things that are really good. So good intention!
Jason: Yeah, we’re just gonna do a couple of rounds. We don’t need to do a setup statement on the side of the hand or anything.
So let’s just take a few breaths and we can set an intention. I’m thinking, I choose to grow with ease. What do you think Rachel?
Rachel: I choose to grow without anxiety.
Jason: Let’s do with ease. The brain doesn’t understand negatives. So with ease and flow, do we want to grow? What do we want? Do we want to grow and expand?
Rachel: Yeah, we want to expand.
Jason: So that’s what we want. So whatever you want, choose something and don’t put a negative in it. Don’t say without or not, because the brain doesn’t have it. It doesn’t understand that. So I choose to grow and expand with ease, right? We’re gonna look for ways this week that we’re growing.
And every day we’re gonna be like, that’s right! Okay, so on the side of my hand at any point, I started at the top of the head. I choose to grow and expand with ease. That’s my intention. Eyebrow. I choose to grow and expand with ease. Side eye. I choose to grow and expand with ease. Under the eye. I choose to grow and expand with ease. Under the nose, I choose to grow and expand with ease. On chin point. I choose to grow and expand with ease. And on the collarbone.
Rachel: So I just turned away from the mic because I had a burp.
Jason: If anybody’s yawning, anybody’s burping, anybody have gas, any bodily functions, chills, all that stuff is showing that the energy is shifting in your body. That’s some of the telltale signs of what’s happening. So I just wanted to mention that.
Rachel: Well, that felt good. I’m telling you, it keeps relaxing my body. Awesome. Well, I know you have a free gift that works for emotional eating?
Jason: Yes, I have the Food Freedom. And I also have something that is for coaches. 9 ways to add powerful things that happen when you add tapping to your practice. Or if you want to add it to your league and use it for your life, whatever. t’s really really good. So we made it just a couple of days ago for you guys!
Rachel: Actually before we end up wrapping up can you tell everyone where to find you?
Rachel: All right, guys. Listen, this was so profound. This was such a great experience. You got to see me go through coaching with Jason. And I didn’t even know we were going to do that. So make sure that you follow him. All of Jason’s information will be in the show notes and be sure to look out for that freebie.
