Are you struggling with a habit that you cannot seem to break?

If so, you will want to watch my video and learn a simple technique you can use to change a habit, attitude or health concern in less than a few minutes a day!

Temporal tapping is an ancient technique that has been around for thousands of years. It works so effectively because as you tap around the temporal bone, which is where the triple warmer meridian runs, the brain is more susceptible to learning while temporarily suspending other sensory input.

You are also sedating the triple warmer meridian which is a huge player in our energy system because it governs the immune system, the flight, fight, freeze mode and the body’s habit response. By calming the part of the nervous system that fights to maintain your habits, it is easier to introduce a new one.

With temporal tapping you are also taking advantage of the right and left hemispheres of the brain. They each have a different function. Think of the left hemisphere as more critical and negative whereas the right side is more positive and believing.

Begin by identifying a habit, attitude or health concern that you would like to change. Now describe the change you would like to see happen around the issue you chose. Try to come up with a short sentence that would express what that would look like and be sure you make it in the present tense as if the desired condition already exists.

Then you are going to come up with a statement using similar words from the sentence you created but you are going to add a negative word like no, never, not or don’t.

Although they both will basically be positive statements, the statement with the negative word in it will be used to tap around the left side of the ear.

Here are some examples of sentences you could use: 

Around Left Ear

I no longer bite my nails

I don’t feel the need to smoke anymore

I no longer get anxious in social situations

Around Right Ear

My nails look beautiful

I love that I am smoke free and healthy

I always feel calm and confident in social situations

After you create your sentences, you will tap around your ear placing your fingers in a claw like position and as you start tapping from your temporal area, down and around your ear, your fingers will feel like they are bouncing off your head. You will tap each sentence 5-7 times over the appropriate ear. Try doing it 5 times a day. The more you do it, the faster the habit will change.

If you feel like you are not having a shift you may need to reevaluate your language. Just like with EFT, it works best if you use your language and really think about what your intention is. Also, make sure you are really concentrating on the statements while you are tapping and saying them, or your mind will be wandering somewhere else, and your brain will not make the connection to make the change.

The temporal tap is so powerful because you are using a variety of elements such as repetition, autosuggestion and neurological reprogramming.

Pick a habit you would like to change and try this technique out for 30 days. Try to suspend your skepticism during that time and just set your intention for change. Our bodies are always talking to us and always gathering messages from us. The biggest gift you can give yourself is to start listening to your body and tap into your own natural healing ability!

Remember, you truly are equipped with the power to change your life affecting mind, body and spirit. You can start today by using a few of the tools I share with you on my website,  and begin implementing them into your daily routine.

Have you ever tried temporal tapping? What is one habit you would like to change? I would love for you to share your thoughts on this subject!

With Love and Gratitude,

    Thank you for this Beth. Can you tap on more than one thing during this 30 day period? After going through one issue, 5 – 7 times, can you then do it for something else? Do you have to wait a certain amount of time before “changing the subject”?

      Hi Melinda!
      You can absolutely tap on more than one thing. The rule of thumb would be to pick something that still bothers you, something you can get emotionally charged over, etc. Then you rate it on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the worst, how this memory or thought makes you feel. Say it is an 8. You begin to tap on how it feels in your body, what emotions are attached to it, what beliefs, the actual story itself and then you check if your number went down. Ideally you like to try to get it to a 0. Say you get it to a 3 and then you feel ok about it for the time being, then you can go ahead and work on something else. The only time it gets a little tricky about changing the subject is say you were tapping about how angry you are at your boss for hollering at you. You begin to tap and halfway through you remember a time your dad hollered at you. Finish the round on your boss, see what number you are and maybe you will find that you are more emotionally charged over the time your dad hollered at you. Then start tapping on that. I hope that makes sense. Basically you can tap on as many things as you want in the 30 days. Maybe some things you will find are too emotional to tap on by yourself, then just skip to something else and see if you can come back to it later. The key is to get your numbers down to below 3 on the things you are tapping on. I hope this helps and did not confuse you more:) Let me know if you have any other questions.

      Be Well, Beth
