It’s perfectly natural to not feel like tapping sometimes. There are various reasons for feeling reluctant to tap – from just feeling tired to internal resistance because you’re close to a big shift. Many of us find the same challenge with new exercise routines, mowing the grass, or cleaning the house. In fact, if it’s really late and you’re exhausted after a long day there are bound to be times you don’t feel like brushing your teeth. There may be days you wake up and don’t feel like going to work.
FasterEFT tapping is more important than all of these things. Yes, even more important than brushing your teeth and going to work. Why? Because it affects all of those things since it changes how you feel, and whether or not you go ahead and do what you know you need to do.
When you feel too tired to tap, do mental tapping. Just as an experiment. Tap mentally on how tired you feel. Notice how tired you feel – notice how you know you’re tired. Where in your body do you feel it? How strong is the feeling? Then use the FasterEFT technique(just imagine you’re doing the tapping instead of actually tapping as you go through the process), to address that tiredness. It’s worth a try, right? If you don’t have to move, and there’s a possibility it can help you feel less tired, why not try it?
Resistance is a massive and key part of changing and transforming. The most important part of the job of the subconscious is to keep you safe. And the programming that is currently in the subconscious is supposed to keep you safe. This means change is, as far as your subconscious is concerned, life-threatening. When you get too far from your old self, and your old patterns, your subconscious will start to trigger reactions in your body that will signal your conscious mind to take different action.
You will probably have experienced this when you’ve tried to change habits. If you’ve ever tried to start an exercise routine and cut down on unhealthy food, you may have found your enthusiasm and commitment carry you through for a while. But as you start to progress and begin to get close to changing your habit, you will notice you start to feel resistant to doing a workout. You may feel tired or get ill; you may feel stressed and reason with yourself that you need to rest or that the cake will help to give you energy… the possibilities are endless.
If this is the kind of resistance you experience when trying to change habits, can you imagine how much your subconscious will dig its nails in when you try to change core beliefs and programming? The feelings of resistance to tapping are signs that you are getting close to a major shift. The closer you get, the stronger the feeling of resistance may become.
How do You Know it’s Resistance?
When there is something that bothers you, and you don’t want to tap on it, that is resistance. If you tell yourself it’s because you’re too tired, but you won’t even tap mentally (without even needing to move), that’s resistance. When you find yourself distracting yourself with other things, or debating on whether or not it works – that’s resistance. After all, it’s a very simple, easy, non-invasive process that doesn’t require any physical energy, financial investment, or the participation of anyone else. Why not just do it? If you can still find excuses to not do it – that’s resistance.
What to Do About Resistance?
Tap on it of course! 😉 Notice the resistance. Notice just how much you don’t want to tap. Notice where in your body you feel that feeling of not wanting to do it. And then use the FasterEFT process to tap on that feeling. Even if it’s just mentally. Continue with the process until the feeling is gone and you don’t mind tapping. Continue past that point until you want to tap. Then address your other issues. And enjoy the results!
