The most traumatic emotions are stored in the right brain stem, disconnected from conscious memory. Prenatal and birth traumas are often not remembered. Gentle tapping can help release these emotions.
- From the feet to legs, chest, back and head, gently tap everywhere. Focus your awareness on the body sensations.
- When there is a physical response such as shaking, heat or cold, or mental images, allow them to come and go.
- Do not repress the response. If the emotions become too intense, one can use eye rolling to release.
