More Common Tapping Questions!
Also read Part I and Part II as well.
Q: If I’m in a situation where I feel uncomfortable saying the setup and reminder phrases aloud, can I say them to myself?
Yes, this still works. If you find yourself drifting and not staying focused, you may wish to continue at another time when you can say them out loud again.
Q: If I’m in a situation where I feel embarrassed or uncomfortable tapping, what should I do?
You can tap inconspicuously on any points you can and leave the others until you have the opportunity to tap in private. Also, consider tapping on the feeling of being embarrassed or uncomfortable in the situations concerned.
Q: If I don’t have a particular feeling and I say the setup statement and tap with someone who does, will that give me the unwanted feeling?
No, you won’t take on someone else’s discomfort. Tapping with someone else for his or her discomfort can give you an awareness of a similar aspect that you may have. In that way you may get “borrowed benefits” from tapping with them and reduce your own discomfort.
