Manifesting Your Greatest Self Day 2 Tapping Meditation

Written by: Nick Ortner


This is a great meditation to use when you’re struggling to feel and see the positive. With repeated use, it can help your brain be more balanced, less prone to always resorting to the negativity bias.

To begin, take a deep breath, and check in with yourself.

Now that you’ve noticed your brain’s negativity bias at work, what emotions do you feel about whatever caused your brain to go negative? Also notice your physical experience. In this negative state of mind, do you feel tension, tightness, or pain anywhere? Do you feel any clenching, tingling, heat, or cold?

After noticing these different aspects of your present moment experience, notice how intensely negative you feel on a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being extremely negative. Then take three deep breaths. We’ll begin by tapping on the Karate Chop point.

KC (repeat three times): Even though I’m feeling all this negativity, it’s so hard to feel positive, I love myself and accept how I feel.

Eyebrow: All this negativity
Side of Eye: So much negativity in my brain
Under Eye: It feels so real
Under Nose: This negativity seems like the truth
Under Mouth: It seems so real
Collarbone: All this negativity
Under Arm: It’s encoded in my brain
Top of Head: It’s meant to help me survive

Eyebrow: This negativity bias
Side of Eye: It’s trying to protect me
Under Eye: It feels so real
Under Nose: It feels so true
Under Mouth: This negativity bias
Collarbone: It’s very convincing
Under Arm: It’s here to keep me safe

Top of Head: But it also makes my world feel dark
Eyebrow: This negativity bias
Side of Eye: It squashes the light
Under Eye: And makes things feel dark
Under Nose: It feels so true, though
Under Mouth: It feels so real
Collarbone: This negativity bias
Under Arm: It’s so convincing
Top of Head: It’s just trying to protect me

Eyebrow: But it’s too dark
Side of Eye: I don’t need it right now
Under Eye: I can let myself feel the light
Under Nose: And see it, too
Under Mouth: I can trust the light
Collarbone: I can move toward the light
Under Arm: The light is real, too
Top of Head: I can let more light into my life

Eyebrow: It’s safe to feel this light
Side of Eye: And let it seep into my brain
Under Eye: I can let it into my body
Under Nose: And feel the joy it brings me
Under Mouth: I can trust this light
Collarbone: And let it fill me now
Under Arm: It’s safe to trust this light
Top of Head: I can let more light in

Eyebrow: Relaxing into this light now
Side of Eye: Allowing myself to open to this light
Under Eye: I can feel safe with this light
Under Nose: I can see this light and feel safe
Under Mouth: Letting myself feel peaceful now
Collarbone: I can trust that this beautiful light is all around me
Under Arm: I can trust that this beautiful light is real
Top of Head: Feeling peaceful within this light now

Take a deep breath, and check back in with yourself, emotionally as well as physically. Notice any shifts you experience by rating the intensity of your negativity again on a scale of 0 to 10. Keep tapping until you get the desired relief.

    Thanks Nic. Looks like the book will be great. I ordered it last week. I did the meditation from the sample you gave of the book. Would it be possible to have someone make a recording of it in the private facebook section. When i have to stop to read it I loose the momentum. I really enjoyed it though & wish you continued success with the good you do

    Love & light

      Hi Rosalie. We are glad you enjoyed the meditation. I’m sorry but we don’t currently have a recording of that. We hope you will be able to join Nick for the upcoming workshops so you can tap live with him. If not, you can watch the videos and tap along at your convenience. We hope that helps. 🙂
