Tapping Meditation: I’m Stressed About the World

Written by: Nick Ortner

HandsWorld“I’m Stressed Out about the World” – Most of us would be well served to never watch the news again. The amount of negativity, fear, and plain misinformation is terrible.

At the same time, burying your head in the sand and not having any idea what’s going on in the world might not be the best move either.

So what to do? Is there a way to be informed, and to focus on the issues that matter, without getting so caught up that we’re affected in a negative way?

I believe there is—and that EFT can help.

The reality is that if we find ourselves stressed out about the planet, politics, wars, and other issues that matter to us, we are damaging our bodies and becoming less resourceful.

Getting upset about an important environmental issue doesn’t do anything about the issue itself. Many of us have a false belief that nothing will change unless we become upset. The reality, however, is that we help effect change by positive action—not by being stressed out about the issue.

I witnessed this reality just a few weeks ago, through a close friend who cares deeply about animals. She’d become aware of a neighbor who was mistreating many dogs and a horse. She had called the proper authorities, but for certain legal reasons, they were powerless to do anything.

Together, we tapped through the emotions surrounding the situation: her anger, feelings of powerlessness (a common theme with world issues!), sadness for the animals, and so forth.

When we were done, she felt more at peace and was able to look at what was happening from a new perspective.

She still continued to care, but she was no longer miserable while she was doing it. That difference, that small distinction, is massive. The same thing is true when it comes to changing the world.

Here’s a brand new tapping meditation that can help!

Watch, listen, and tap, and hopefully, you’ll get the same results that my friend did. 🙂

Until next time…

Take care, and keep Tapping!

    From 7-5.5 need to make this more specific to my personal situation to go lower.

      That’s a great insight, Sabine! More personal setup statements and tapping is how to really get powerful results. You can use this meditation as a guide to start with, and then change the words to suit your specific situation. 🙂

    I get super stressed out when I hear about the hateful ways people talk about those who have differing opinions, or about death threats against government officials. The hatred in the US is over the top. Hatred against the president. OMG! This tapping meditation really helped me. Thanks.
