Tap While You Gripe is one of my favorite ways to use Emotional Freedom Techniques. It is a super simple technique. Just talk and tap.
There are times when you get angry or irritated about something. Sometimes it helps to talk it over with someone. Talking and venting your feelings can be helpful. Why not try tapping while you are talking about the issue that is bothering you. Just tap and tell the story. You can talk to a real person or pretend there is someone you are talking to.
Don’t get too worried about the exact wording you use or what order of points to tap. You don’t even really need to say the words out loud. Just focus on the negative emotion you want to clear. Keep talking and tapping.
I like to use Tap While You Gripe technique if I am really upset about something but I don’t know where to start. When you start tapping and talking, things will come to mind. Just keep tapping and expressing anything you are feeling until you have poured it all out.
You don’t need to say things out loud. You can be thinking the words as you tap. Just focus on the negative emotion while tapping.
