Natural Disasters - Tips & Scripts

Updated: May 23, 2020

The devastating emotional impact of ferocious storms, fires, floods and earthquakes can leave us in an indescribable state of despair.  

So where and how do we begin?

At times like these the idea of tapping may not seem appealing, even though we know it can help. So be gentle with yourself, and consider beginning with one of the two silent options suggested.  Going through the process with eyes closed should improve the calming effect.

Touch and Breathe:  Beginning with the Side of the Hand (SH), apply gentle pressure and slowly take a nice deep breathe in through the nose, out through the mouth.  Repeat the process at each point.  Repeat as many times as you like.  Remember, eyes closed.

Silent EFT:  Close your eyes and do your best to be in the present moment. Focus on the predominant discomfort, or just take a couple of nice deep breathes and begin to tap, starting with the SH, continuing through the sequence. Repeat as many times as you like.

And below are a few tapping scripts offered with the hope and desire to help whoever this reaches. Kindly share them with anyone you know or believe it might benefit.  Thank you!
