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.

If this practice of Emotional Freedom Technique brought you relief, I want to know! Leave a comment to let me know how you feel and what you experienced.

If you haven’t felt much of a shift yet, do another round of tapping. You can come back to this video anytime.

  1. That was great thank you! You’re amazing, the universe has your back and other things you’ve done have greatly impacted my life. Love the image of having angel wings try to envision them during my morning practice. Please keep up the great work!

  2. Gabby what is the difference between judgement and observation?

    I’m starting my judgement detox ~ thank you!

    Also, I wanted to add that I’m left eye dominant – are you familiar? Most humans are right eye dominant (this is different than left brain/ right brain/ left handed/right handed). Left eye dominance is lady brain acuity that is akin to near photographic memory, heightened perceptions, heightened detail awareness, etc

    It’s a blessing & a curse! Makes me REALLY good at what I do (!), but has judgement tagging along for the ride I am sure!

    I became “separated” at a very young age from my family of 7, so I’ve been Joelle Judge for as long as I can remember!

    Blessings, love & light, Joelle

    1. Great question, Joelle. Observation is witnessing or noticing an experience. Judgment is witnessing or noticing what is coming up and then determining its value (ie: good vs bad, right vs wrong). It is possible to observe without judgment and that is goal when when we are doing self work.

      I honor your willingness to show up for yourself this way. It takes courage and strength to make meaningful change. You’ve got this, Joelle! xoxo

  3. Thank you for sharing so much wealth of goodness! Questions…

    Do I tap on both sides of my face & body to amplify the benefits or stay on the side that is demonstrated only? Mirror you? or do the same side as you? The visual face illustration has the upper lip point on the right, and in the video we were tapping left…

    In other words, in the video you are tapping on your right side mostly, and mirroring you, I was on my left side? How does that change effects if at all?

    1. Hi Joelle,

      It doesn’t matter what side you tap on. Most people tap with their dominant hand on their dominant side. If you’d like to switch it up and do a round or two with each hand, that’s fine! Let your intuition guide you! xoxo

  4. Where has this been my entire life? Thank you, I am so incredibly grateful for what I’ve learned in the last 24 hours of listening to your book and your amazing (and even free!) resources. So much weight has been lifted away and now I can begin to actually “see” why I self sabotage, feel frightened at 3 A.M., get angry for no reason, feel like a waste of time to myself, and can’t seem to ever really get a “grip” on my life and goals. I am so grateful. This is exactly what I needed. I have never felt so compelled to offer myself self love. And you know what? I am worthy of it and much more. Sometime in the future I will be able to let go that need to control enough and align myself, that finances will no longer be such a worry and I will be able to submerse myself further with the Miracle Membership. Thank you for the gift you and your incredible team have given me.

    1. Gin, this prayer may serve you:

      “Thank you, Universe, for helping me reinterpret my relationship to money. I know my lacking thoughts are based on fear, and I’m ready to release them now. I welcome new and creative abundance, and I will pay attention to the guidance I receive. I am free from my financial fear. I am abundant.”

  5. Hi Gabby.

    I’m reading your book Judgement Detox. I absolutely love it. I tried tapping my MPI was at a 10, now at a 6. Judging a whole group of people! During the tapping process I just wanted to cry and still feel like I should but I just can’t. Is this normal?

    1. Hi Clare. Grateful to read these tools are supporting you. Crying is a very natural reaction to tapping. Practicing EFT can bring stuck emotions up and out. Other reactions might include sneezing, coughing, or burping. Be gentle with yourself and let those tears flow. <3

  6. I found this technique to be remarkably helpful. I will commit to continuing this practice going forward. Thank you so much, Gabby.

I only recommend products and brands I passionately believe in, but wanted you to know that when I make a recommendation, I may receive a referral fee.
