Why We are Tapping on the Negative
Welcome! My name is Julie Jacky I’m a Certified EFT Practitioner & Coach and I’m here with the tapping tip.
So, one of the biggest questions that I get asked is “why we are tapping on the negative?” and my answer is “because is there”. So many of us have been trained to only focus on the positive, so many of us have been trained through the love attractions to just focus on the positive and when you focus on the positive everything will go your way and you get exactly what you want…

Does it matter which hand I tap with?
No, it doesn’t matter which hand you tap with – use the one that you are most comfortable using.
How do I know it’s working?
You’ll know it’s working when you experience any one or more of the following:
- The intensity of your emotion changes
- The feeling you first felt in your body subsides or moves to a different location
- Have an itchy nose
- Or even pass gas (yes, I am serious… it could happen – it’s your body’s way of releasing)
- You feel calmer inside
Any negative side effects?
The only negative side effects I am aware of are:
- Once you start tapping you may have other items surface that will also need to be cleared
- Tapping too hard may cause bruising (solve this by tapping lighter. You need to tap enough so you can feel the pressure of your fingertips, but not harder than that.)
How do I know what to say?
This is a great question – one that I get asked a lot. You say whatever is going on in your head – the things that you say to yourself (but don’t necessarily say out loud or share with others). That’s the trick. Say out loud what you are saying in your head.
If you get frustrated about trying to figure out what the heck to say – then tap on that:
- I am so frustrated.
- I don’t know what to say when I am tapping
- I don’t want to screw it up
- What if I do it wrong
- I want to do it right
- I don’t know what to say
Can I mess it up? Or do it wrong?
Tapping is incredibly forgiving. You can miss a point or two and it will still work. You can tap in the “wrong” order and it will work. You might not know exactly what to say and it will work. The main thing is – keep tapping. The act of tapping – works. Keep doing it.
Is tapping over the phone as effective as it is in person?
Yes, tapping over the phone is as effective as it is in person. When I tap with my clients over the phone my hearing and special senses kick in. I listen for your yawns and sighs. I listen for the way you say words, what you are saying and how you are saying it. My intuition also guides me to help you.
Some clients feel freer to share thoughts in their heads over the phone – which also can make the tapping session more effective.
Why do you focus on the negative?
Yes, it is true. When you work with me, I teach you to “Tap on the Crap™”.
Why the heck would I want to tap on the crap, Julie? I don’t want to focus on the negative. I want to focus on the positive!
Of course you want to focus on the positive! We all do! And working with me will ultimately be a positive experience, I promise. However, the negative stuff is already inside of you and needs to be let go. In order to truly experience happiness you must first acknowledge and release the anger. That’s what I teach you to do. It’s kind of like cleaning. If you just sweep the dirt under the rug, things look clean but they’re not. Tapping on the crap helps you get rid of the hidden “dirt” – the emotional barrier hidden somewhere in your body.
Once you Tap on the Crap TM and release the negative emotion, true happiness will follow.
