Tapping For Fear Of The Virus

Updated: Apr 13

I was doing some tapping this morning around the virus, and I had the thought “this feels like the plague.” I kept tapping and what came to me are these rather obvious thoughts.

Yes, but we have better healthcare now.

Yes, but we have better communication now.


Yes, but we aren’t living in the 1500’s. (I was off with my dates – the plague was in the 1300’s.)

We can feel fear that’s actually rooted and being amplified by the past and in our genetic memories. And if we bring conscious awareness to this fear, it can shift. To borrow a phrase from Internal Family Systems, what if we can update our fear and let it know it’s 2020? So a very simple tapping could start with something like this:

Side of the hand points

Even though this feels very scary, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though this feels very dark, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though this feels like the plague, I deeply and completely accept myself.

The points

  • Beginning of the eyebrow point: This feels dark

  • Side of the eye: Feels like the plague

  • Under the eye: Feels like the plague

  • Under the nose: This feels really big

  • Chin point: This feels really scary

  • Collarbone: This feels really dark

  • Under the arm: This feels like the plague

  • Top of the head: But what if it’s not

  • Beginning of the eyebrow point: We have hospitals

  • Side of the eye: We have scientists

  • Under the eye: We have social media

  • Under the nose: We have laboratories

  • Chin point: We have ICU’s

  • Collarbone: We have technology

  • Under the arm: We are more resilient than ever before

  • Top of the head: We can do this!
