Meditation Monday: EFT Tapping for Self-Love

A few weeks ago, I did a Meditation Monday article on EFT Tapping. Since this is the first week of the KINDNESS CHALLENGE, with a theme of SELF-LOVE, I thought this was a great opportunity to revisit this incredible technique.

For those of you not familiar with EFT tapping, EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. For more detailed information on EFT tapping, you can read my article HERE. But, I’ll give you a basic overview here.

In EFT tapping, you tapย 10 different acupressure/acupuncture points, while saying an affirmation. These points are just 10 of the 100 meridian points used in traditional Chinese medicine. You’ll find the 10 points below.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been using this technique with great success, in regards to cravings as well as negative thinking. If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend you give it a try. The more you do it, the better it works.

Below you’ll find three (3) different EFT Tapping videos to help you with self love. The 3 videos cover different area of self-love.

  • VIDEO 1-Loving your fearful self
  • VIDEO 2- Learning to appreciate yourself
  • VIDEO 3-Self love to aid in weight loss.

I hope you find these videos useful. I have made it a goal to use video 3 everyday over the next week. I’ll let you know in my weekly journal how it goes. I’d love any comments or thoughts on this technique. Have you used it? Did it work for you?

Have a great day everyone and

About Tamara Hoerner (1303 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes โ€œGood, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.โ€ I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

    • In my case it’s normally sugar. I’ll say something like “even though I’m craving sugar right now, I unconditionally love and accept myself right now.” You can also add …”I do not crave sugar at this time. ”
      You may need to go through the rotation a few times but it will lessen the craving.
