Teach Your Body to Feel Safe Tapping Script

One of my most popular videos is called Teach Your Body to Feel Safe. Our bodies can get stuck in old patterns of anxiety and stress that relate to past events which are no longer relevant. In this video you can tap along to remind your body that right here, right now, you are safe. I’ve made this transcript of the video for those who prefer to follow a written tapping script.

I’ve made a transcript of the video here for those who prefer to follow a written tapping script:

With the clients that I work with, many of them suffer from anxiety or panic attacks. Very often this is a pattern that is stored in the body, because the body is trying to keep you safe.

Normally that threat has long since passed – it may have been a threat at one time, or it may have been an imagined threat. But the pattern is still in the body of trying to be always on hyper alert, hyper vigilant, trying to keep you safe, and it is not useful anymore.

However, some people are unfortunately in a position where they are still not safe. If that is you, I suggest that, first of all, you try and find a way to get out of that situation. So if it’s a person or a job that’s making you not feel safe, you need to get out of that situation. This is a kind of stress or trauma that’s still ongoing.

It’s easier said than done! If you’re living in a warzone, obviously, you’re actually not safe at all. There are unfortunately situations when people are in an ongoing state where they’re not safe. If you’re in that kind of space, I suggest you use No Words Tapping, or Havening, body-based techniques that will just bring down that level of anxiety. Because if you’re able to tap and sit for five minutes to do something like tapping, then you are actually safe enough to do that, right?

I’m giving this preamble because it’s really important that when we tap saying things like, “I am completely safe,” it’s actually true. Because if it’s not true, our body and our mind and our physiology knows that and it’s not going to work and it might be unhelpful. So if you’re not actually safe, if you’re not feeling safe now, if your stress and trauma has not finished yet, then first of all, see if you can do something in your physical reality to make it better, or to leave that situation. And if you can’t, then use something like tapping with no words to just help you come back into your body a little bit and bring down the anxiety level a little bit, so that you can use your thinking mind to help yourself.

Tapping Script

That being said, let’s assume that your trauma has finished and you’re left with feelings of anxiety or stress, and we’ll start tapping:

Side of the hand: Even though those things happened to me, right here and right now I am safe.

Even though there were some things in the past that maybe made me frightened, that was then, and this is now, and right here, right now, I am safe.

Even though I’ve had some stressful and traumatic events in my life, right here in this moment and in this place, I am safe.

Eyebrow: I choose to remember that I am safe now.

Side of the eye: In this place I am safe.

Under the eye: At this time I am safe.

Under the nose: That was then, and this is now

Under the mouth: And I feel my feet, and where I’m sitting, grounding down into the earth.

Collarbone: I feel the support of the earth right here, right now.

Under the arm: Breathing in, I relax.

Top of the head: And breathing out, I relax.

Eyebrow: I soothe and comfort myself right here and right now.

Side of the eye: It is safe to be here.

Under the eye: My body is safe to be here.

Side of the eye: That’s okay too.

Under the eye: Little by little

Under the nose: I choose to learn and to remind my body

Under the mouth: That I’m choosing to feel safe right now.

Collarbone: I choose to remind every cell in my body that I am safe.

Under the arm: I choose to remind every part of my body, every organ, that I am safe.

Top of the head: I choose to remind my brain and my mind and my nervous system that I am safe.

Eyebrow: Breathing in, I relax, I am safe.

Side of the eye: Breathing out, I relax, I am safe.

Under the eye: And I choose to remind every part of my energy system that I am safe.

Under the nose: Right here, right now, I’m safe.

Under the mouth: That was then, and this is now.

Collarbone: I feel my feet on the floor,

Under the arm: And I feel where I’m sitting, grounding down into the earth.

Top of the head: I feel my body in this physical reality,

Eyebrow: Right here and right now

Side of the eye: I am safe.

Under the eye: It is safe to be here.

Under the nose: It is safe to be here now.

Under the mouth: I choose to remember to feel grounded and safe.

Collarbone: I feel the support of the earth.

Under the arm: I relax into the earth.

Take a couple of breaths: full breath in, easy breath out.

And one more in, and out.
