If you grew up with parents that were always worrying about you then you’ve probably grown up with the message that the world isn’t a safe place and you always have to be careful. If you grew up with these message then you’re probably never relaxed, always on guard and living your life in the future instead of living life in the present, and always concerned with what could happen. Worrying is learned behaviour and yet it doesn’t have to be this way! This is where Tapping therapy can really be of assistance in changing perspectives. What is it costing you to continue to worry constantly?
What is the Law of Attraction perspective on worrying?
Some people unfortunately think that worrying will prevent the thing they’re worrying about from coming true. Years ago I heard someone state that worrying is like a negative prayer. Looking at this from a Law of Attraction perspective whatever you worry about you’re focusing on, in other words in a way you’re asking for it to happen. When you look at it from that perspective you can see that worrying doesn’t serve any useful purpose!
Worrying thoughts become pervasive and can take over your thinking and your entire life if you’re not careful. It can also interfere with sleep. Some people find they have trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep and others find they wake up flooded with worrying thoughts.
When worrying gets out of hand you may find yourself turning to unhelpful coping mechanisms such as binging on stodgy, sugary, or salty foods or drinking excessive amounts of alcohol. Worrying can also cause digestive upsets.
How to use EFT Tapping for worrying?
EFT Tapping is the perfect tool for the chronic worrier. Why not try using the Tap and Talk technique. Begin by rating the problem using the SUDS scale of 0 – 10. Next begin tapping the karate chop point and talk about all aspects of the problem you’re worried about. Continue tapping on the various tapping points on the body while you tap and talk and explore all the possibilities that are worrying you. Don’t forget to also tap and talk about what your preferred outcome of the problem would be.
