Whenever we are confused — usually about a decision we are faced with making but aren’t yet ready to make — tapping can help. Indeed, one of the phrases that I only hear in Spiritual Workout world is “tapping for inquiry.” This is something we do often and, for sure, when confusion is ruling the day.
There’s no right or wrong here. There’s just a tool, tapping, that can help us to organize how it is we are thinking and feeling.
Remembering that the basic idea of tapping is to unlock/release/move stagnant energy and/or to organize energy that is swirling around (confusion), our basic set-up as we start to tap is, “even though I’m really confused right now about whether to accept the job I’ve been offered…” and we go from there.
As we move around tapping on the different points, we simply give voice to the array of thoughts and feelings we’re having, which sounds something like: “There’s so much about this job opportunity that appeals to me and I put in a lot of effort to interview for it and then prepare for the interview, it would mean not being able to be home on Tuesday nights and that’s a special time with my kids. [Still tapping on all the points.] The salary is way better and Tuesday nights are not likely to last forever, but I don’t want to be the one to put the kabosh on this treasured family tradition. I have shiny, clear intentions about what I want for my work but I also have shiny, clear intentions about the kind of mom I want to be. I’m pretty sure the kids wouldn’t care as much as I do about Tuesday nights right now, but it’s important to me. [Still tapping.] Then again, with a bigger salary, I’d be able to provide that much more for them. But they don’t really care about that stuff. They’re not asking for more, but they’re still young enough to treasure time with me and their dad. I have a few more days to decide so, while I’m at it, I’ll ask my guides to help me with the decision. There might even be a better job out there than this one, but I also really like this one.”
There’s no right or wrong here. There’s just a tool, tapping, that can help us to organize how it is we are thinking and feeling. When we tap for inquiry in this way, to literally inquire with our Selves as to how we’re feeling, what we’re thinking, and/or what action to take, tapping for inquiry always helps. Typical statements from someone who has tapped for inquiry sound like: “yeah, that’s right” or “maybe I don’t have to figure it out today” or, often “well now it’s clear!”
