Here’s what happened when I tried the “quick tap” to help manifest many things (including good skin)

dThe word manifest makes you think of mood boards, mantras and The secret? Well, same until recently when I had the chance to meet Poppy Delbridge, author of Tapping In: Manifest the life you desire with the transformative power of tappingand was fascinated by the rapid tapping method he had devised for the demonstration.

Blending the art of ancient touch therapy to displace stuck energy, along with repetitive speech, micro-meditation, and visualization, Delbridge says you can take control of your life with just a few moments a day. Curious as to whether or not this would actually work, I tried rapid tapping for a week.

What exactly is tapping?

The concept of tapping originated in the 1980s when acupuncture students realized that they could stimulate pressure points without the use of needles. It began as a method of relieving physical pain, but in the 1990s psychologists revealed that tapping on certain facial spots could also serve as a form of therapy to help balance negative emotions. Nowadays, the best known form of tapping is called the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and involves affirmations being spoken while touching pressure points. For example, I first learned about the practice during a fear of flying therapy session, where I learned to tap whenever turbulence made me anxious.

The more simplistic version of Delbridge’s practice, which coined quick tapping, is a set of short routines that are rooted in the same ideas but introduce a goal-setting element. Traditionally, tapping has been used to remove pain and trauma and to reduce stress, but my rapid tapping technique is also about moving towards potential and possibility, that’s the biggest difference, he says. What you believe it’s possible it’s ultimately possible, because it’s all about adjusting your energy to match what you want. It’s a proven technique that connects thought patterns about yourself to your potential.

How does the quick tapping method work?

Delbridge says the more you talk about and tap into positive beliefs and affirmations tailored to your ideal future self, the more likely they are to come true. Essentially, by focusing on the outcomes you desire and strengthening those connections in your mind, you make them deeper and stronger through a process called neural plasticity.

In terms of the physical act, Delbridge says she thinks of quick tapping as a distant cousin of acupressure, the needle-free version of acupuncture., which humans have done for centuries to promote maximum health by encouraging Qi energy (i.e. life force) to flow in perfect balance.

It is also important to imagine the result you want to manifest. Visualizing while tapping is an important way to mentally try something that gives your brain parameters that weren’t there before. He compares it to what athletes do all the time before a game.

Remove blocks and limiting beliefs

Delbridge explains that only positive thinking (like, I want a yacht!) i won’t give you what you want. But unlocking deep feelings about why you don’t deserve that yacht will raise obstacles you may have subconsciously set in order to achieve your financial goals.

And just as I was taught to tap during turbulence to calm my nerves, removing negative narratives is easiest when you’re in a slightly altered brain state (Delbridge explains that this is when you’re most suggestible to positive changes). We make memories when we were very emotionally charged, like your wedding day, or when something really terrible happens, she says. The quick tap will put you in that energized brain state by turning off your stress reaction, which is the perfect time to use my energy techniques to seal in that positive frequency. She adds it Then you can introduce goals and ideals into the image.

How to perform the quick tapping method

There are a few quick touch points (like between the eyebrows, under the eyes, on the collarbones, and above the heart), which act as meridian endpoints (again, think acupressure). In his book, Delbridge suggests measuring your progress through a series of automatic checks that assess the change in your emotional state as you learn that exercise will, over time, increase.

As the book outlines, I was asked to breathe deeply, with my hands on my heart, and to say out loud how I feel. Next, I massaged the pain points (a comforting spot under the collarbones that regulates the nervous system) and reframed any negative feelings with positive ones, charting trails for the day. Finish by tapping with self-affirmations and then rubbing your hands together and placing them around your head in an embrace to recalibrate and seal the positive frequency.

Delbridge explains that this exercise alone has the power to instantly change your mood (and it really did, for me). But as a longtime beauty writer, I’d be remiss if I didn’t add one seriously enticing side effect of this practice. Because you’re tapping on your face in one continuous motion, tired eyes benefit from the gentle lymphatic tap, which increases blood flow for de-puffing benefits. Such skincare claims may seem far-fetched, but one look at Delbridge’s clear, vibrant complexion and you could become a believer, if not a tapping fanatic.

What can you use quick tap for?

Really for anything, says Delbridge (think: creative prosperity, financial abundance, great sex). She explains that when large groups come together with a unified focus, a higher frequency is created, which is why she is hired to work with larger business teams and communities so often.

As for my personal wiretaps, there were some really heavy items that I wanted to wiretap for, namely gun control, reproductive rights for all, bathroom renovations, but for the sake of this article I picked something more immediate; I turned my passion for travel into a sideline a year ago and now design luxury travel for my network, so I decided to tap into a fantastic new client. Since I don’t actively promote myself, I rely on referrals from friends, who often feel left out to the universe.

What happened when I tried tapping quickly

I’m very disciplined when it comes to routines, so ending my day with a few minutes of quick tapping was no challenge. (I actually enjoyed the ritual of it all.) When it came to making a difference in my skin, I can say no, I haven’t seen a reduction in wrinkles or an increase in collagen (although that’s hard to gauge at the time). mirror), but yes, there has definitely been a reduction in the puffiness around my eyes, an age-related issue that has made me self-conscious. As a longtime fan of lymphatic massage, I wasn’t surprised by the instantaneous effects of the fluttering strokes around my eye sockets and find myself gently tapping them when I’m sitting at my desk.

Did I reach my goals in one week of tapping? Yes and no. A new client didn’t walk into my life during those weeks, but two current clients asked me to make last minute summer travel plans. One of my goals for this new side gig was to get returning customers, another way I measure my success. Did my tapping attract this positivity? Perhaps! Delbridge admits that even though the process is backed by science, there’s a magical element that plays into realizing your vision, one that’s hard to prove or explain. Some things are unfathomable to the human brain, he says, but if it makes you feel better you end up saying, I’m in!
