The Temporal Tap is an age-old energy technique that calms the part of the nervous system that holds on to old habits.
It was originally used for pain control in the Orient, and legend also claims that it was historically used by the ancient Chinese to control unruly children.
Now, it is used for reprogramming your mind, in fact, it helps break old habits, attitudes or emotional responses and establishing new ones.
Simply tapping on the head around the top of the ear calms the part of the nervous system that fights to maintain your current belief systems and patterns of behaviour. The brain is then more receptive to learning new beliefs and instilling new affirmations, while temporarily suspending other sensory input.
Tapping impacts our thinking, our behaviour, our nervous systems, our energies and even the activities going on in our cells.
The tapping stimulates acupuncture points that release tension and help to balance the energetic system of the body. When combining this tapping with statements or affirmations, the intention is put into the energy field which is then directed toward achieving the desired outcome.
The temporal area that gets tapped is linked to the triple warmer meridian (“An ancient Chinese medical text states: ‘The Upper Burner controls intake, the Middle Burner controls transformation, the Lower Burner controls elimination – ieske.com”).
When tapped, the triple warmer meridian relaxes, allowing new habits and new attitudes to be reactivated. This works because you are tapping in the opposite direction of its natural flow and it makes the brain more receptive to learning.
Your life is ALWAYS showing you the results of your mindset. Just maybe you’re not aware of the thoughts and emotions that are creating your reality. You can never change your results with the same mindset that got you stuck.
By calming the part of the nervous system that fights to maintain your habits, it is easier to introduce a new one.

HOW TO TAP
Begin at your left side of the head moving from the temples towards the ears. Tap on your temporal bone with your fingertips while saying a positive statement. Perform it for at least 5 times. Say the words to the rhythm of tapping. Now you should repeat the exercise for the right side of your head. However, you should say a negative sentence.
It is important to repeat this exercise several times a day. The more often you do it, the sooner it will influence your nervous system, health, and habits.
Remember to keep it in the present tense as you are informing your subconscious mind that this is a fact now.
Use short, simple phrases that resonate with you. Be specific about what you want, and don’t use phrases that are too vague, for example, instead of “I am a very confident person”, you can say “I do feel confident when I am surrounded by people”.
Left Side Tapping (Positively Phrased):
- I can let go of fear and open up to joy.
- Money comes to me easily and effortlessly
- I choose to release stress and allow my mind and my body to be calm and serene.
- I choose to believe that I am absolutely good enough.
- It is easy for me to lose weight.
Right Side Tapping (Negatively Phrased):
- I no longer experience overwhelm.
- I no longer have issues with money.
- I am not afraid to speak up.
- I no longer believe that I’m not good enough.
- I no longer struggle to lose weight.
If you sense you are resistant to a specific statement, try to analyse what is going through your mind while you are saying your affirmations. If you feel like you are not having a shift you may need to reevaluate your language and change your positive affirmation to a statement that resonates with you.
“Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny.”
