I kicked off 2018 with a blog post that introduced the first step of the Judgment Detox: witness your judgment without judgment. In the book you will do a deep-dive exercise to witness your judgments, but the blog is a great starting point to get familiar with the concept.
Once you’ve witnessed your judgment without judgment, you are ready to begin healing. Step 2 of the Judgment Detox is to honor the wounds that live beneath your judgment. I’m really excited to share this blog with you today, because I decided to include something extra special — a video from my new digital course, The Secret to Living a Better Life!
In this video I guide you through a session of the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), which is also known as tapping.
EFT is a psychological acupressure technique that supports your emotional and physical health. It combines the cognitive benefits of therapy with the physical benefits of acupuncture to restore your energy and heal your emotions. And it’s very easy — you just stimulate certain meridian points on the body by tapping on them with your fingertips.
One thing I really love about tapping on judgment is that it heals deep wounds without asking you to dredge up old memories or relive trauma. Healing judgment requires a lot of courage on our part, because underneath every judgment we make is a core wound. Even the most minor and seemingly insignificant judgments stem from our own shame and shadows.
I’ve found that tapping is one of the most powerful ways to bust through the blocks, relieve physical pain, release phobias and heal the negative emotions behind traumatic experiences. It’s also easy to learn and can be practiced anywhere, anytime. Through the process of tapping you can experience miraculous shifts — and the shifts can happen fast.

In my own process of recovering from judgment, honoring my wounds has been the most important step. My willingness to honor my wounds is what has helped me create significant, sustainable change in my judgmental patterns and in my life.
I’ll be honest: I resisted this practice at first. I wanted to push past the wounds and just get rid of the judgment altogether. But that doesn’t work. If we don’t honor the wounds and the energetic patterns that dwell beneath our judgment, they will keep coming up — over and over and over again. And once I began tapping on judgment and shame, I felt such incredible relief that my resistance melted away.
If you are ready to begin healing judgment, watch this beautiful tapping video from my new digital course, The Secret to Living a Better Life. In this video we tap on judgment.
Here’s how it works:
Whenever you begin the tapping process you start with what’s called the Most Pressing Issue, or MPI. In this case the MPI is related to judgment. Let’s start with the phrase, “I can’t stop judging this person.” You can modify it to make specific to your own situation.
Next, you rate your pre-tapping MPI on a scale of 0 to 10, 10 being the most distressing. This 0-10 number gives you a clear point you can refer back to after your session. Rating your MPI helps you get clear about how you feel, recognize the benefits of EFT and celebrate your healing.
Therefore, we will begin by rating our MPI and then begin tapping. We begin with “negative rounds” and move on to “positive rounds.” We talk as we tap on the different meridian points. You’ll see how it works and get the hang of it quickly! In the video I guide you through everything.
