    I have been struggling with neck pain & headaches and used your metaphors in my tapping. I realised that I have been afraid of moving forward and being successful because it would upset my sister who has a very closed mind when it comes to EFT and alternative therapies. The metaphor I came up with was that when my marriage fell apart and I had no money we were on a level playing field but that if I move on with my life she will be left behind and I don’t want to hurt her. The pain hasn’t completely gone yet but now I know what I need to keep tapping on.

    Hi Amy,

    Funny how I came across your article because this morning I was doing just that for the first time: metaphor tapping!

    I was concentrating on my throat and chest, in relation to clearing away my unhealthy relationship patterns with men. In relationships, I tend not to speak up for myself and over time build up resentment and get very angry (all suppressed though). I am now single (single mum!) and am working through all my issues so I can well and truly leave them in the past.

    Another one I was working on was my big toes. They have been very sore the last month, I thought I was getting an ingrown toenail or even getting an infection! I now realise that it’s my feeling like I can’t properly move forward, and being ungrounded (always in my mind, thinking thinking). Now that I’ve identified these metaphors I will continue doing the tapping around these… I’m sure they will shift pretty quickly! Thanks again for your article!

    I’m going to take a look at your book now… I’m interested in writing a book too!

    See ya,
    Kate :)

    I’m a big proponent of using both EFT and metaphors to heal–and they combine together particularly well. As Carl Jung said, “Images have the power to initiate healing without the cooperation of the intellect.” Working with your mind/body metaphors bypasses the limited understanding of your conscious mind and gets to the core of your issues. I like your suggestions, Amy!
    You might also want to look into the work of David Grove called Clean Language. He developed a way help clients explore and change their metaphors in a profound way. See my workbooks on the subject: Mining Your Client’s Metaphors: How-To Workbook on Clean Language and Symbolic Modeling.
