Tapping on what we think others are saying/thinking about us

 

YouTapping aims to release emotional discomfort at the subconscious root. Before continuing or practicing YouTapping, please read our disclaimer and agree to its conditions.

 

Some people have a strong tendency to believe that others are thinking negatively about them. This may in fact be true, but it would seem that most often the belief is actually stronger than the reality.

Imagine that in our childhood, our parents made a comment that seeped into and remained within our subconscious. Perhaps they may have said 'You're so weak'. They may have only said this once or twice, but having absorbed the comment, we begin to believe in its veracity and so say to ourselves 'He (or she) thinks I’m weak' every time we do something that we think might appear to be a weakness in front of our father or mother (or whoever it might be). And even though this is absolutely not the case – after all, we are all children of God and completely perfect if we look beyond what our minds have created for us – the words will still roll around in our head until they become a reality in our lives.

So firstly we need to tap this away as well.  This type of tapping might not be needed for everyone.  However, most of us will at some stage question what other people are thinking about us.  So, tap on the statement that we think they are thinking.  It could be anything, and not just the words used below.  As always, you must take complete personal responsibility for whatever happens during and after the process for you.  Do not tap on anything until you personally feel you are ready to release it :

'He thinks I’m weak'
'He thinks I’m weak'
'He thinks I’m weak'
'He thinks I’m weak'

OR

'She thinks I’m fat'
'She thinks I’m fat'
'She thinks I’m fat'
'She thinks I’m fat'

On a side note, it is important to remember that whenever we are thinking something negative about another person, we are actually voicing that same negativity about ourselves.  So, if you find yourself having thoughts like 'He’s stupid' or 'She’s so disgusting' or 'He’s so fat', then even if we don’t think we are, we are actually thinking that thought or something similar about our self.  Now, though the reader may argue this point (and the author understands the argument!), the truth is that someone who is completely free of judgement and fear and self-deprecation would NOT think the above about anyone.  It just wouldn’t cross their minds.  You may not be fat, you may be absolutely skinny, but you may hold a fear about being so. This is why you need to tap on it because you are tapping on the emotional energy as well as the words that are spoken.

Think of something you have thought regarding a friend or family member or workmate or someone you saw on television, remember the words you thought and then tap by using your own words as the basis for this round.  We'll use some words as an example:. 

'She’s so ridiculous'
'She’s so ridiculous'
'She’s so ridiculous'
'She’s so ridiculous'

AND

'How pathetic'
'How pathetic'
'How pathetic'
'How pathetic'

AND

'What a loser'
'What a loser'
'What a loser'
'What a loser'

It is wise to come at the situation from as many different directions as you can.  So if we think 'What a loser', then we might also think 'How pathetic', so as we’ve done above, use several different phrases that you may have said about someone at the same time.
