Tapping for Thanksgiving Cravings and Anxiety

Written by: Nick Ortner

The holidays are coming!

This is either a joyous thought OR one that has you running for cover… (or a little of both maybe…)

One of the biggest stress factors we face is around the subject of food. What to eat, what not to eat, and how to make healthy choices without feeling deprived.

Jessica ran an amazing 7-week program on the subject of Weight Loss and Body Confidence, and recently, she shared a tapping meditation about food. This meditation includes making good choices while avoiding deprivation, and all the conflict that comes with that.

But today, we’ve pulled it out of the 7-week program to share it with you, for free!  It’s great audio that you can use for “Tapping for Thanksgiving!”

A little holiday gift for you. 🙂

Press Play to Listen to the Audio Below

Enjoy it, and Happy Thanksgiving! (or Happy Regular ‘Ole Thursday if you’re joining us from somewhere else around the world!) 🙂

Until next time…

Keep Tapping!


What was your experience? Are you looking forward to Thanksgiving? How can you make it a stress-free experience?

    Thank you! I actually listened several days after the holiday, and the mention of the feeling of sluggishness really hit home! For two days I have been feeling that way–thinking that I was sick, getting nothing done. After this procedure, I am ready to continue cleaning up the Thanksgiving kitchen with energy and gratefulness! Again, thanks!

  4. Sudershan says:

    Felt quiet reassuring.

  5. Eileen says:

    Thank you. I’m hoping this will help, not only now, but at all future gatherings where overeating is normal and expected. This could be the end of my overeating!

  6. Margaret says:

    Thank you so much for this wonderful time just before my thanksgiving diner. I appreciate every minute of it. I am a lot more confident with all this food in front of me. I am able to make better choice now. and not just for today but for many more days coming.
    Thanks again
    I love you You help me in so many ways I am grateful for all of you from the tapping solution.

  12. jas says:

    Felt great.

  13. Shari says:

    I loved it but I wish there was a video with it.

  14. Mary says:

    I find tapping helpful, and I like the fact that it’s akin to acupuncture without the needles. I’m sure this “meditation” is appropriate for lots of people. Going off on a tangent: I find it amazing that fruit and vegetables are even “colour coded for us.”

  15. Lena says:

    I’m recovering from some horrible flu and had not been able to eat for awhile. After tapping, my stomach relaxed and I’m enjoying my fresh juices and things that make me feel well. The session also relaxed me, in general, like coming home. Not too slow at all. Thanks and I know I’ll enjoy my “just another Thursday” much more. Will listen again.

  16. Harry says:

    what audio? try again.

  17. Coachb says:

    Wow – What a way of getting grounded to allow yourself to enjoy the Holiday Season and Spirit beyond the food. Sometimes it is easier said then done. Tapping allows me to overcome the emotional craziness around food. Tapp away….

  18. annamarie says:

    Nice, but too slow. Also, several times I had moved my hand away from the tapping point, but Jessica had only paused and was still continuing the phrase for the point. The phrase should be said all at once. Have a good one.

  19. Denice Roberts says:

    This was wonderful. As usual hit several of my emotions around eating on the head. I plan to listen to it tomorrow morning also.

  20. Diane says:

    Thank you Jessica . . . it was wonderful to reflect on love and gratitude!!!! Happy Thanksgiving to you!!!

  21. Shelly says:

    Wonderful meditation. I just started a gluten-free diet and this will be very helpful as I move into this new way of living.

  22. Susan says:

    Thank you Jessica and Nick for making this terrific holiday tapping routine available to all of us who struggle with so many addictions. I wish I could have seen your smiling face when you were tapping but that’s ok. Very relaxing and soothing.. Your voice is wonderful and so healing to listen to. I
    hope wherever you and your family are going you have the best time ever. Keep shining your light, you are such an inspiration. This one hurdle remains to be my biggest life’s challenge. Beaten so many addictions thanks to tapping and my “food is my comfort” is the one that remains
    Love and Light always in All Ways, Susan Pharis Huntingtown MD

  25. Moira says:

    Happy holidays to you all and thank you for your gift. Unfortunately I couldn’t here your words as the music was too loud. Is there anything I can do to let me hear it without the music? Fingers crossed!

  27. Arhat says:

    Jessica – your tapping is wonderful – but I must confess, I dont feel “deprived” when I eat what I love knowing and experiencing its beeing GOOD for body and mind.
    Eat less, chew more, enjoy it! . . .

  28. Eva Bryant says:

  30. Senguttuvan says:

    Thanks Jessica,

    There was a temmporary detachment with your inspirational words with the tapping enhancing the brief period. Thanks once again and wishing you and Nick a happy Thanksgiving.

    Let Peace Prevail.


  31. Cindy says:

    Thank you for this meditation. I am so looking forward to being present and remembering the good feelings I experienced at the end of the audio. I’ve started my list of things to be grateful for and you’re at the top of the list! This is so inspiring……I’m making a wish to have the whole world tapping! Happy Thanksgiving.
    With love and peace,

    Hi Nick, I couldn’t get the audio to play! But am excited to learn more. I did the Seven Weeks to Financial Freedom and it has been amazing. Thank you so much for bringing tapping into my life. Much love & respect. Kia Kaha. Helinor.

  35. Helen says:

    Yes, it gives me a feeling of appreciation for everything I have. This is the first holiday without my husband (married 55 yrs) , but I look forward to enjoying this holiday with one of my sons, and the other holiday with our daughter and other son. This is helping me to look forward with gratituted for what I still have. It takes away the fear of unhappyness.

  36. Carmen says:

    This is a wonderful tapping meditation ,
    Thank you so much for remind us how easy this holiday season could be if we focus in gratitude and unity.

    Happy Holidays!!

  37. Cris says:

    Very empowering! Thank you for guiding me to a positive place. I am grateful for the gifts life offers. I able to enjoy the love of my family and friends.

  38. Marie Rosier says:

    Thanks Nick & Jessica, This really centred me first off and helped prepare me for a client with weight issues (amongst other things). As usual your tapping models inspirational words to ensure tapping follows a healing sequence from acceptance to letting go, from what was to something preferred. Happy thanksgiving. Marie

  39. Mique says:

    Your a natural! Thanks a bunch for your calm reassuring manner. Is it possible to download this one Tapping experience?
