You may have noticed how complicated your inner life is.
At any moment in time there are thoughts, feelings, memories, fantasies, images, physical sensations, etc. floating along in your stream of consciousness. Some of it may be important, some of it not so much.
If we want to use tapping to work on one of our own issues, or to work with someone on one of theirs, the contents of that stream of consciousness becomes important because you will need to tap on some of it.
Sometimes there’s too much ‘stuff’ to deal with.
When we are struggling to handle difficult emotional issues and trying to understand what is happening, the amount of stuff to tap on can be overwhelming. There’s a lot going on, and if you can only tap on one thing at a time, how do you choose what to tap on?
