17. The Temporal Tap

  • George Goodheart
  • Donna Eden

18. The Temporal Tap

  • The temporal tap was created by George Goodheart, the founder of applied kinesiology
  • Indications:
    • stopping smoking, drinking, overeating
    • changing compulsive habits
    • building confidence, optimism, and self-esteem
    • stimulating the immune system when fighting a serious illness
    • improving metabolic activity when trying to lose weight
    • enhancing co-ordination when trying to learn a new skill

19. The Temporal Tap

  • Your mind is receptive to specific affirmations when youre tapping around the temporal bone
  • The temporal tap affects the brain and each meridian
    • It sedates the triple warmer, because you tap in the opposite direction of its natural flow
  • The triple warmer governs your bodys habits
  • By calming the part of the nervous system that fights to maintain your habits, it becomes easier to accept a new habit

20. Right / Left

  • For right handed people, tapping on the right side strengthens positive statements
    • Under pressure I stay calm and centred
  • Tapping on the left side affirms negative statements with a positive intent
    • I no longer get stressed under pressure

21. Location

  • Tap on the temporal sphenoidal diagnostic line beginning just in front of the ear, at the temples
  • The tapping begins in front of the ear and proceeds around the TS line and finishes at the posterior of the ear, near the base of the skull

22. How to Tap

  • How to tap:
    • Tap with the three middle fingers of your hand
    • Tap hard enough to feel a firm contact and a bit of a bounce
    • As you tap, say the affirmation in the same rhythm
    • Tap from front to back about five times, making the statement with each pass
    • You can tap with right hand on right side of head and left hand on left side (Donna Eden) or the other way around (George Goodheart)

23. The Positive Statement

  • Creating the positive statement:
    • Focus on a goal that you want to achieve:
      • changing a habit, overcoming an addiction, etc.
    • Affirm the goalin a single sentence
    • Create the affirmation the way you naturally talk and think
    • Ask inside if there is any part that objects to the goal and the corresponding statement
    • Make sure that you release any objections before attempting the temporal tap

24. The Negative Statement

  • Creating the negative statement:
    • Create your positive statement first
    • Change the positive statement to a negative form by including words that still emphasise the positive intention
      • no, never, don't, won't, etc.
  • The meaningstays positive:
    • I eat for health and fitness and enjoy my food
    • becomes:
    • I dont eat from anxiety or compulsion

25. Frequency

  • Repeat the procedure several times a day
  • The more you tap in the affirmation, the quicker and stronger the effect on your nervous system
  • The temporal tap can also be repeated at the moment of an addictive or compulsive urge
  • It may take many days of repeating before the benefits become observable

26. Caveats

  • Wrong wording can trigger an opposite result
  • If one part of you says a + affirmation another part objects to, the negative can be reinforced
  • Test for counter-statements opposing the affirmation:
    • Check while tapping and saying the statement with one hand, use the other arm to have someone do a muscle test
