Over the past three weeks I have been training with Lujan learning Tapping. I have some difficulty in writing about this because it has already become a very personal affair, but I wish to share some of my experience to give an idea of what it is all about to anyone who is interested.

I will say here that it is a lifetime practice. Once you understand what it is for there is no turning back.

In Tapping you are forced to face yourself every morning. It is a set of very demanding physical exercises which go deeply into your muscles, especially the legs, stirring up any emotions which are stored there, bringing them to the surface. What you do with these is up to you.

For me, within a few days I had some major upheaval, a lot of stored anger came up. The Tapping brought out and magnified this anger which I had been strongly identifying with to the degree that I was on the verge of exploding for a few hours after the practice. There came a point where I had to question it. Is this necessary? At this point I realised that I could turn it on and off. It was quite funny. I could go from a genuinely violent shaking rage to being completely placid in one second. After this realisation the anger kind of just disappeared. I also experienced severe pain in my throat for the first few sessions, which was related to my inability to communicate, and as the days went on, as I opened up more and more the pain lessened and lessened. .Having to face it everyday puts you in the position where you either deal with it or you continue to experience pain. This is what it is all about, pushing yourself to the brink of what you can handle physically and emotionally, to the point where anything unnecessary manifests very obviously.

The benefits you receive from the practice are proportionate to how willing you are to face yourself. The practice will open you up and empty you out. The feeling that I have after practicing is that every cell in my body is activated, vibrating and alive, and I am experiencing a calmness which I have never possessed before. Magical things will occur, but they are no more important than anything else. The practice is a never ending process, an endless challenge.

I cannot thank Lujan enough for sharing with me a gift that will be with me for the rest of my life. To anyone is a sincere seeker this may be the most valuable tool you will ever find and it will make you realise how many other systems just do not work as effectively. Within two weeks of practicing Tapping I was experiencing a rising of energy from the ground, through my root chakra, through each higher chakra to my crown, which I felt as a tangible sensation of tingling heat which had nothing to do with imagining it. I could feel a line of energy passing through the centre of my body.

Another thing I will mention that Lujan showed me was the “silk veil technique” which dramatically increased my awareness of the energy surrounding my body in the air around me.
