Cascade tapping

Hi Everyone,

Angela Treat Lyon offers a tapping routine that she calls Cascade tapping. It involves a great deal of tapping and parallels the continual tapping idea put forth by Dr. David Lake. You will need to try it to see if it creates more benefits for you over repeatedly tapping in the normal way. I offer a perspective at the end of her article.

Hugs, Gary

Hi Gary,

I thought you'd be interested in an interesting way I've been taking people through EFT. It's powerful, sublime, and very effective. I'm calling it Cascade Tapping, because it feels like standing under a waterfall.

You know how some people are stuck in their thoughts and have a hard time feeling or saying what's going on with them? I've used it for hundreds of people now (both in live sessions and in my teleclasses), and I've found that this way of tapping helps take them from thought to feeling in seconds.

It's really very simple. Instead of jumping from one point to the next and tapping on each one 5-7 times, you move gently and gradually in little half-inch increments from one point to the next, only tapping on the incremental spots once.

So you start at the eyebrow point and tap over to the side-eye in about 8 little steps, then down around and under the eye in about 6 or 7, and so on down the side of the face to the under-nose, over the lips and down the chin and throat, and so on.

When you get to the collarbone points, you tap down diagonally to the under-arm point, and circle down to the liver point on the ribs. Then jump over to the inside-wrists and up to the top of the head and down again if appropriate or needed.

There are now variations and ideas about where to start, but I usually start at the top of the head with very gentle circle of tapping, then trek on down to the third eye, and on down. No hard fast rules.

I'm finding that there's an almost instant yawn or sigh factor for anxiety and fear, in particular. I do it while I'm driving in heavy weather and am calm almost immediately.

I'm including a part of one my Wealth Maverick teleclasses where we were tapping with M___ , who felt that "everyone can 'do it' (market themselves, have abundance, success, etc.) but me."

The teleclass was Rebonding with Abundance, bonding with the Mother Principle - both for those who never bonded with their mothers and for those who wanted to strengthen their bond (not just to their own mothers but the Archetypal energy that makes it possible to be open to receive abundance).

On the Karate Chop Point:

I feel like everybody else able to make it when I can't…

I feel like I'm missing something…

and I can't stand selling myself…

because I have so many doubts about my self worth…

I haven't been able to sell myself…

I doubt myself…

on the other hand…

I feel special…

but other people don't see it…

because I don't sell myself…

but that's OK, I still want to love and accept myself…

I haven't been able to sell myself…

because I haven't known what to say…

or get across how much I love what I do…

without feeling like a pushy salesman…

I'm going to change that today…

because what I'm going to do…

is continue my connection with my Mother (the Archetype)…

so that I can feel like I'm receiving…

and be able to talk from a space of fulfillment…

rather than being needy…

BECAUSE I love and accept myself…

sometimes I've felt really stupid…

but I know I'm intelligent…

how come they've got it and I don't?…

I have tried and tried and tried…

I've done all the same things they do…

but they succeed and I fall short…

I feel like there's a wall between me and life…

I work and work and work and what do I get?…


...And it makes me so mad!

...I've got this reversed energy all the way through my system

...all the way from birth and maybe before!

...But I know I can reverse it

...this EFT stuff is pretty handy.

...I know that I can reverse things that I never knew about I'm using this energy reverse the non-bonding with my Mother that I can open up every one of my cells entire body

...and my entire energy system the bond with my Mother that I never had before

...and when I do this's an opening to the Mother Principle even if I don't like my Mother

...that's alright, it's not about her's about the receiving principle

...I'm choosing to open up myself fully today

...right now, right this moment

...BECAUSE I believe in me.

Cascade Tap from the top of the head, just saying each phrase one after the other at your own pace:

...I believe in me

...I believe in this bond

...I've never had it before

...I never knew that I was even missing it, I'm opening up my ability to receive

...because in the past

...I just didn't know where to turn

...I didn't even know what was missing

...I tried and tried and tried

...and I always fell short

...I never could reach my own expectations I always ended up so disappointed

...I wanted and wanted and wanted

...and always fell short

...and got so mad

...and so sad

...and disappointed

...and depressed

...all that energy sitting there in my system

...that I've used for anger and sadness

...disappointment and depression

...I'm flipping it on it's back right now that I can use it for creativity instead

...and it's jumping up and down

...and saying it's about time!

...where have you been all these years!

...I've been trying to help you!

...and I just couldn't get through

...I'm so happy to be connected.

...I can see a pipeline

...from me to my mother

...and the abundance that she carried in her body

...all the way back to my original ancestor

...from my grandmother to my great-grandmother

...great great grandmother all the way back through the ages

...all the way back, sending a line of light all the grandmothers

...all the way back to the beginning

...and coming back to me

...a solid line of being connected the Mother principle

...of love, and abundance

...and prosperity

...I'm now taking that same line

...and shooting it forward

...through all my family members

...and my descendants, whoever they are

...opening up that line of receptivity they don't have to suffer being closed off

...this is how I can share my abundance

...because I truly do love and accept myself

...and today I'm removing the wall,

...and turning it into a river

...of abundance and prosperity

...I'm creating new pathways of safety and prosperity

OK, take a deep breath, in and out. How's that feel?

M_____ says: "It feels wonderful. There were times that I just wanted to stop tapping and open my arms to the receiving. It felt like I want to open my hands, my palms, my fingers, the inside of my arms...all the front of my body, to that receiving mode! My body is just open to all that abundance that I knew was there!"

GC COMMENT: I admire the creativity here and offer the following perspective: (1) there is a LOT of tapping in this method and such persistent tapping often produces this open and relaxed sense. This is true for continual tapping whether or not one is using this cascade method and (2) even deeper results can be gained if one aims at the specific events underlying the problem.

much aloha -
