Healing and Hope After a Disaster Strikes: Tapping for Australia

Written by: Nick Ortner

We didn’t start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world’s been turning
We didn’t start the fire
No, we didn’t light it
But we tried to fight it

I’m sure many of you recognize the lyrics above from Billy Joel’s song, “We Didn’t Start the Fire”.

It came to mind as I sat down to write to you about the tragedy of the fires in Australia and the feeling that many of us have about things being “on fire” in our lives.

It’s true that many of us didn’t “start the fires” in our lives, that they are patterns from the past; decades, centuries of small fires being lit, of injustices, of anger, of denial, of fear.

Patterns from our ancestors, patterns from the past, patterns of hopelessness, loss and grief.

And maybe those are some of the feelings you’re having as you see the fires burn in Australia – feeling hopeless, feeling overwhelmed, wanting to help.

That’s why my sister Jessica sat down to record a specific audio Tapping Meditation for Australia, titled: Tapping for Australia.

It’s available for you to listen to for free below. Take a few minutes now to use it, to lighten your load, to send healing energy to Australia and the world, and to begin putting out the fires.

This meditation is a sample from our Tapping Solution App that’s available to download here.

    Thank you Nick and Jessica much for this tapping meditation for Australia, this has been so helpful for me, I discovered it a few days ago.
    I live on the south coast of NSW and I am now preparing to evacuate for the fourth time as the fires are closing in on our small town of Moruya. Since last year we have been watching our country burn and as it creeps closer, family and friends loose their houses, our lungs fill with smoke and the anexiety rises. We have become traumatised, I have become depressed, not able to function, just managing to clean up and prepare for the next one. Today is another one!
    I have used tapping in the past and I have now embraced it again after several years and feel so grateful for the reminder of the many ways that it can help.
    Two days ago I was so low and had no energy to even cook myself dinner, I felt like going to bed and hiding. Instead I did a tapping session! I ended up just 10 minutes later, putting on some music, dancing and preparing myself a delicious dinner.
    My spirits are lifted, I feel a sense of optimism and feel joyful knowing that I can work through this and help others.
    Thank you!!! Love love

    thank you so much Jessica and Nick for holding us in your healing thoughts and wishes, and encouraging others to do so. It means a lot and the tapping helps release the bottled up emotions .
    People are mobilizing to help the decimated wildlife and communities, but there is so much loss.
    Everyone is thinking of ways to help, have just dropped off knitting wool to help make pouches for injured wildlife, but it will be a long process…

    Hi, thank you Nick and Jessica. It’s good to feel love from beyond our devastated continent and to be reminded that we can focus our prayers and love towards all the affected regions. I was not aware of how much pain and deep sadness I was holding in my body before tapping. Blessings to you.

    I now am full of love and light. I saw people from all over the world standing around Australia, framing and giving light and love. I saw them flooding the whole land with something looked like a white cloud, cool and wet. Wonderfull vision 😍

  16. Connie says:

    I am sitting in my house in the smoke with my bags packed waiting to be evacuated as the fires come closer. I grieve for my country, Australia, and the huge loss, and I cried as I listened to this tapping meditation. Thank you.

  17. Michelle says:

    Thanks so much, this is just what I needed for my heartbreak about Australia. It gets overwhelming sometimes. Will do this tapping over and over.
