Racial Anxiety Relief – Tapping Meditation

Written by: Nick Ortner

One of the most important elements of Tapping is its ability to create the space to see and honor one’s pain. It’s not about ignoring it or just trying to think positively, but about being with your feelings and validating your own experience. That is an essential part of healing, and one of the reasons why Tapping works so well. As the nation mourns the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, we are beginning to truly witness the racial pain in this country. For some of us, it’s a pain that’s been part of our daily reality, and for others, we are only just becoming aware of its depth.

True healing comes when we can stop and acknowledge this pain; when we don’t try to reason our way out of it or dismiss it, but accept it and thus begin the healing journey.

Here at The Tapping Solution, we are committed to listening and learning more about the struggles being faced within the black community and other communities whose voices haven’t been heard.

We are committed to creating a safe space where everyone feels loved and accepted as they continue their own journey of self-love and self-acceptance.

To that end, I want to introduce a new resource created with our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color community in mind, by reintroducing one of our Tapping World Summit presenters, Dr. Damon Silas.

Here is a special note from Dr. Silas, and below it, I’m also sharing resources that we can all benefit from.


“Hi, I’m Dr. Damon Silas, a psychologist who specializes in anxiety and trauma. I am also a black man in mourning.

During this time especially, it can feel impossible to relax. I get it.

That’s why I felt called to create a Tapping meditation for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to experience some ease from the anxiety (alongside many other emotions) that comes from racial injustices – injustices that we are witnessing and experiencing across this country and within our own community.

The pain we are feeling is justified, and our bodies still need a break. Whether you are having trouble sleeping, experiencing headaches, stomachaches, or a racing heart, we need to take care of ourselves so that we can connect to our own power.

You can find this free Tapping Meditation in the Crisis Support section of The Tapping Solution App or simply type Racial Anxiety Relief in the search bar for easy access.

As I was recording this, I had to pause as I almost began to cry. I was reminded again of the power of acknowledging your feelings and Tapping. Sending Peace, Love, and Light to you all.”


We know many members of our community, regardless of race, color, or creed, are struggling to navigate this difficult time. Here are some additional Tapping Meditations that you can find in the Tapping Solution App. These resources are provided at no cost. I encourage you to share all these resources with anyone in your own community who can benefit.
