Using theTemporal Tap to shift you out of Overwelm

Are you looking for ways to shift into more prosperity, less fear and worry, overcome overwhelm, and step out of self sabotage?

EFT temporal tap 1The “Temporal Tap” is an energy technique that is enormously effective in breaking old habits, attitudes, and emotional responses, and establishing new ones. I first learned it in 1997 when Energy Balancing by Donna Eden, and then was introduced to EFT by Gary Craig.


EFT and Reiki were just coming on the scene back then, and were far from mainstream, and they were bending my skeptical pharmaceutically trained mind. If I hadn’t seen results immediately with my entire family I would have dismissed it, but the transformations made me even more curious to learn more modalities on my journey. I was reintroduced to the Temporal Tap in 2014 when I learned Tong Ren Tapping on Acupuncture points, and then again in 2016 when I learned QCP & New Descision Therapy. It is a valuable and important part of reducung stress and manifesting change.

Can you believe that by simply tapping around the top of the ear you have a simple, direct, and powerful tool that makes the brain more receptive to learning new habits and instilling new attitudes! YOU DONT HAVE TO BELIEVE IT, YOU JUST HAVE TO DO IT.

Tapping here calms the part of the nervous system that fights to maintain your current habitual (stuck) belief systems and behavior patterns, making it easy to instill new activities and conduct that attract success and prosperity into your life.

Energetically it taps into three main meridians:

the Triple Heater Meridian for balancing cell memory, transition, clearing frigid impotent rigid ideas;the Gallbladder Meridian to clear the wei ki, discerning filters, creating fluidity and flow of energy, synthesising, decision making and motivation;the Stomach Meridian for digesting life, ruminating, intellect, full spectrum emotions and conscious thinking.


I am going to use money examples because we just finished February with “Rolling in the $doh$”, and I have never met someone who couldn’t use more money no matter what their income level.

Step 1: Begin by identifying a habit, attitude, or condition in your life that you would like to change.

Write it down stated as a Positive Affirmation in Present Time, as if the new condition already exists. (Writing it down engages your senses of touch, sight, left right brain balancing, intuition and intellect. Say it out loud to hear it and energetically taste it. Make sure it’s one idea per sentence only, short and to the point. The Unconscious Mind likes simplicity and clarity.)

For example, you could say: “I joyfully receive abundance in my life”

or even “I always have more than enough money to pay my bills”

Affirmations can be anything you wish to become true and operative in your life.

They can be specific, such as: “I easily and successfully attract 5 new customers every day,”

or general, such as “There are plenty of customers for my services.”

And they can be used to increase success, no matter what your career choice:

“I am making good money being a writer/ artist/ mechanic/ hairdresser/ etc.”

It is important that the statements are in your native language or the one you are most comfortable with, in your own lingo, and aligned with your own values.

For easy recall, make them short and to the point.


Step 2: Start tapping at the right temple in front of the ear canal and continue tapping on the scalp along the top edge of the ear until you reach the back center of the ear, just opposite where you started.

 Tapping with all your fingertips together ensures that you contact all the points along the Temporal-Sphenoidal (T-S) line. Tap gently, just firmly enough to stimulate the energy. Repeat 3 times, each time repeating your affirmation.

The effects of the Temporal Tap last about thirty minutes, so relax and go about your day  before repeating the tap with the same affirmation. Doing the procedure several times a day can speed up the installation of new behavior and attitudes since reinforcement is an important part of the process.  The more you tap in the affirmation, the quicker and stronger the effect and the easier your habits will change, so do it with other habits i.e. when showering, on the john, walking the dog, waiting for your coffee, on a coffee break … have fun with it.

If while you are tapping you think of a more appropriate statement, write down the new refined version and use that instead. Allow this process to unfold and evolve.

Pick one affirmation per day, per week if you like. Once your statement has become a part of your life, you can replace it with something new to bring into your life.

(I prefer not to use several statements a day, but feel free to Temporal Tap separately for as many affirmations as you wish, as long as you can easily address each one at least several times a day on a daily basis, 30 minutes apart).

trash your negative self talkStep 3: Pay attention to what is going through your mind while you are saying the affirmations!

For example, if you are stating, “I deserve prosperity and abundance in my life” and your self-talk replies, “This is useless, I’m not educated enough to be rich,” then your statement isn’t ringing true for you and needs to be adjusted & modified.

Perhaps saying, “I now have the ability to recognize and take advantage of opportunities that create prosperity” would be more effective.

If you are stating, “Money flows easily into my life” and you hear the words, “My parents lived from paycheck to paycheck and so will I,” then try something similar to, “I am more abundant than my parents because they want me to thrive and  be successful by todays atandards.” Be creative with your affirmations; find one that really resonates for you and that you can really believe in.


Affirmations could be stated as:

  • “I constantly do everything necessary to establish a positive flow of money in my life”
  •  “The universe always supports me”
  • “Everything I touch is a success.”
  • “My income increases whether I am working, sleeping or playing,”
  • “I’m helping lots and lots of people”
  • “I’m making oodles and oodles of money.” Whatever feels light, fun, and possible
  • “I’m making a minimum of $1500.00 a week” or $500 or more, whatever feels right for you. The possibilities for constructive affirmations are endless.

EFT TEMPORAL TAP AFFIRMATIONSTemporal Tapping has helped people build confidence, optimism, and self–esteem while replacing old habits with constructive behavior. It can be used for almost any area of your personal life, including mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, occupational, domestic, and social.

People have used it to lose weight “I enjoy eating healthy foods in the proper portions”, to improve job performance “Right now, I complete my tasks easily, correctly, and joyously”, and even to stop fingernail biting “My fingernails are growing long and strong.”

The Temporal Tap is a simple, yet powerful way to change many thought patterns and habits. Focus on what part of your life you most want to change, and create a simple affirmation that reflects your highest ideals.

Personally: In my 20’s I was still painfully shy, so I took a sales job to bust out of my self imposed prison and liberate myself. What affirmation did I use to instill a newly found confidence into my life? “Right now, it is safe to deeply and completely accept myself in the presence of other people.”

You are welcome to experiment with any positive statements that resonate with you. If you ever feel the Temporal Tap is not working, modify the wording of your affirmation.

Remember, it is important that the statement is comfortable for you and clearly reflects your goals. Use the language you are most familiar with, and words that are aligned with your values and feelings. Go for it: this is your chance to attract abundance, health and positive relationships into your life, right now!

Enjoy using the Temporal tap to reduce your stress. Its a great tool for your personal Fast Aid kit.
