Tapping Meditation: Releasing the Fear of Public Speaking

Written by: Nick Ortner

Fear doesn't exist anywhere except in the mind. - Dale CarnegieYou’ve probably heard the Jerry Seinfeld joke:

“According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.”

I can just hear Jerry deliver it – so good! (And I just re-watched Seinfeld, start to finish. I’m telling you, it gets even better with age!)

Anyway… so… are you scared of public speaking?

When I speak in front of audiences and ask this question, a good 20% of the people there raise their hands.

There’s probably another 20% who are scared to even raise their hands – lol!

And then there are chunks of others who have various feelings like, “I’m not scared of it, but I don’t like it.”

Or they might have specific scenarios that they struggle with. Or they’re only a “little bit” scared, but that’s enough to stop them in subtle ways from creating what they otherwise might want in their lives.

But not to fear – Tapping can help! 🙂

I’ve seen it be utterly transformative on fears of public speaking! And to get you started, I’m sharing a Tapping Meditation today on “Releasing the Fear of Public Speaking”.

It’s my gift for you today because the world needs your voice!

I’ve even made it available for you to download and keep, so you can have it on your phone when you need it most, like before a presentation or speech. I don’t want you being nervous backstage, so I’ll be there to help out. 🙂

    Hi, I experienced some trauma as a teenager related to public speaking. I can trace my fear back to a specific event. It has held me back most of my life. I had a 60 minute presentation to do yesterday for work and I am new to my job. I had to get the fear under control because I am so tired of the worry I have every time I have to speak. I found this tapping series and I have been doing it every few days for two weeks. As yesterday approached, the only stress I had was wondering why I wasn’t nervous. After decades of fear, I am amazed. Thank you!

    Nick I was unable to download the audio except for 2 seconds of music at the beginning. It then cut out.
