Parents, Kids, & Teenagers

Tapping With Teenagers

Written by: Nick Ortner

I want to share a short video with you that shows the power of Tapping with teenagers.

It’s an excerpt from a workshop I did a few years back at a Hay House conference and only 17 minutes long. A couple of things you might want to note about this video:

  • This young lady did something she’s embarrassed about, and we tap on it together WITHOUT her telling me exactly what happened. This is HUGE for teenagers who don’t want to tell adults, parents, teachers, etc. exactly how they feel. You can still work on an issue without talking about it specifically.
  • Humor, in the right moment at the right dose, can be just what we need to help heal.
  • Notice how current events, even for a young teenager, are often built upon earlier childhood traumas.
  • Watch how you can use empowering states and resources to overwrite old traumas.

I hope you enjoy the video and use Tapping with your teenagers! And please share it with those that have teenagers.

Until next time…

Keep Tapping!

    EPIC. I tapped along and a specific incident popped into my from 30 years ago that I managed to clear. Thanks to Nick, this brave young woman and the supportive audience for creating a space for healing.

  3. Diana J. says:

    Simply awesome… A Beautiful Blessing for this young girl and all those who tapped along with her. “To feel Loved for the first time!”

    I was in a ceremony, I had to give the words in the name of the group of 28 women. With all the fuzz involved and having to travel from one city to the other, I forgot the words that I had already written in my notepad. Then I started tapping meanwhile my time to speak came, when I started to speak the words came out of my mouth so fluid and without any nervousness at all. I was amazed and thankful to God and my partners that commended me to speak for all of them. I was congratulated.

    Sharing this young woman’s experience reminded me that as a Mom I want to be careful of my anger around my teenage daughter – not to stuff it, but to find healthy/responsible ways of expressing it so I am not crushing her and leaving long-term pain behind. Thank you for all your good work, Nick! much love.

    Thanks Nick! It is just wonderful how an experience like this can help us tap and release present emotional pain that is related to traumatic events of our past.
    Epic!

    I cleared some anger and issues on some school issues that I had many years ago plus cried with love at the end. fell less tight in my chest and will use the imaging of drawing over the pain. liked that idea.
    So thank you . now I need to work on my own teenager to encourage her to use tapping and not find it all a hassle.

  9. Alice / Therapist says:

    Thank you Nick for the wonderful humour in leading this teenager through huge pain to an EPIC result she will never forget this moment keep up your amazing work. Much love and gratitude!

    We don’t always realize how our emotions at a young age can stay with us and hurt us later on.

  11. Monique says:

    Very powerful and commend the young lady’s courage to take this step in a public setting. It was also healing for me. Thank you.

  12. Leanne Mollins says:

    Wow!!! I almost went into the ugly cry at the moment I felt this young lady feel “gotten” by you and the audience members. My teenage niece has been staying with me and my family for the last month due to a broken relationship with her parents. I feel hopeful for her after watching this video. She and I have already begun tapping together. Thank You.

    i cryed baby while i taped along.

  14. Gail Marie says:

    My 72nd birthday is tomorrow; today I cleared, with the gently release of many old tears, two incidents in my teenage life that very evidently still were unhealed and fairly raw within me.
    My journey on this path has been almost 24/7 since 1986!!! and I now share the results with many clients and in leading groups on 13 week intensives. This is another gift of peace for me I have been blessed to receive.

    in gratitude and appreciation!!! deeply!!! thankful.

  15. Karen Floyd says:

    Nick is such a master… I cannot watch his gentle, loving guidance through the tapping process and the recipients’ unveiling of the healing, without tears rolling down my face! Life changing for not only the participants, but for all of us getting to view as well. Thank you, thank you, for sharing your gift!

  16. Stephanie says:

    Thanks for sharing this. I teach teenagers voice lessons and I’ve been incorporating tapping into what we do and it was good to see a demo where you allow the teen to think about what happened without having to give the details. I also appreciate finding something she loves and using that positive feeling to replace the negative feelings.

  17. BB says:

    Life changing tapping in action! Amazing video! Cried seeing you help her bring the love and strength out, replacing anger, shyness, shame… Epic for sure!
    Thank you Nick for doing what you do and sharing it with the world! Yours is one newsletter I always open with a smile and excitement.
