Why Tapping Works

How to explain the meridians?

Meridians are the internal energy pathways that run through our physical body. They are not like our arteries, veins and the lymphatic system but are pure energy. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine these meridians allow the flow of the energy qi or chi, in effect the life force, to run throughout the body. Traditional Chinese medicine is a medical system that has been around for thousands of years. It is used to prevent, diagnose and treat disease. It is based in the belief that qi, the body’s vital energy  flows along our meridian channels in our, and everyone’s, body. Qi is an energy current that passes through the inside and outside of the body, and also through physical objects too. When your qi is strong, it courses through you and fills you with life and health. When your qi is weak, it remains still and stagnant within your body. Qi keeps a person’s spiritual, emotional, mental and physical health in balance. Traditional Chinese Medicine aims to restore the body’s balance and harmony between the natural opposing forces of yin and yang which can block qi and cause negative emotions and  illness. It is considered that illness occurs when the flow of qi is hindered. This hindrance is considered as a blockage of which must be removed to restore the body to health. So by tapping on the specific acupoints on certain meridians we the unblock the flow of qi(chi) and restore a healthy energetic flow in the body. The chi that runs throughout our bodies are both yin (female and is darkness, tranquility, cold and wet. The moon and water are Yin elements. Yang is the male side and is light, active, heat and dryness. The Heaven, the sun and fire are yang elements Yin allows expansion and rising. Yang causes things to contract and sink. Yin and Yang must work together in harmony as all diseases are caused by a disruption in the bodies energy flow.

Our Meridians

I have given a simplistic description above on how the Traditional Chinese Medicine works with the body’s energy meridians. Now I am putting forward scientific evidence for those that find bodily energy hard to go for. Albert Einstein proved that everything in the universe is energy. Have you ever thought what that means practically? It means that any problem you experience in your life is energy related.

Your emotions and bad feelings (anxiety, depression, stress, grief, anger, fear and more) are low vibrational energies. We accumulate these energies in our body since our birth. These bad energies are responsible for our problems in life and blocks our further success. Like all living systems, your body is a unified collection of energy fields. If you alter the quality of these fields then you can change the way the way your body functions and your life also.

We know that our anxieties are because of our old friend the Amygdala. It reacts and remembers every negative experience we have therefore we will react negatively to a every  similar experience. By tapping on the selected meridian points (acupoints) while feeling/focusing the emotion, it is known to calm the amygdala down and deactivate the link to the original experience. Holistic energy therapies are surprisingly effective method to get rid of bad feelings, to increase the energy within us and to preserve the momentum in any area of our lives. In this way we can move on and live a more successful and happier life.
