In my first blog post on my book Judgment Detox, I guided you toward the first step of this six-step practice: witnessing your judgment without judgment. In the book you will do a deep-dive exercise to witness your judgments, but that post 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. We do this through Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as tapping.
I’m really excited to share this post with you. I decided to include something extra special. It’s a tapping video from my Judgment Detox Digital Course.
In the video below I guide you through a session of EFT. We’re going to tap to release judgment.
What is Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and how does it help heal judgment?
Emotional Freedom Technique (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.
Tapping is 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, because underneath every judgment we make is a core wound. Even the most minor judgments stem from our own shame and shadows.
EFT is one of the most powerful ways to bust through blocks, relieve physical pain and heal any kind of negative emotion.
Tapping is also easy to learn and can be practiced anywhere, anytime. Through the process of tapping you can experience miraculous shifts 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 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.
Once I began tapping on judgment and shame, I felt such incredible relief that my resistance melted away.
Before we begin tapping to release judgment, I’ll explain how EFT works.
How EFT tapping works
Whenever you begin the EFT 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 Emotional Freedom Technique and celebrate your healing.
We will begin by rating our MPI and then start 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 EFT works and get the hang of it quickly! In the video I guide you through everything.
