Got Writers Block?

Sometimes we’re stuck for ideas.  We simply can’t think of a thing to write.  Luckily, I don’t have a problem with this.  Mine is the opposite.  I have too many ideas and get overwhelmed easily.

But, I do have blocks though on other things like dealing with paperwork, going to the gym and ironing.  When these activities become pressing, I tap on them and they clear within minutes and I am then able to complete the dreaded task. I know that sounds almost too good to be true, but why is that we never question advances in technology, but we are still so sceptical about advances in human technology?

I find that amazing.

Tapping works the same for any blocks, including writing blocks.

I can’t honestly explain to you how or why it works, I just know that it does.

Tapping is easy to learn and apply to any mental or emotional ‘stuckness.’   It is a form of what is called Energy Psychology, which addresses the relationship of energy systems to emotion, cognition, behaviour and health.

The true name for Tapping is EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique and has been used as a therapeutic tool for more than a decade, but it is fast becoming the modality of choice for personal development, motivation and mindset.

So, if you are having problems with writer’s block or indeed any block, find out about Tapping.  Your mindset will change so fast you won’t believe it and within minutes you could be flooded with writing ideas. If that is the case, do what I do and start a list.  I have a list called Future Blogging Ideas.

If you would like to learn more about Tapping, join me in a Facebook group in which you can learn how to apply it to your own blocks by reading articles and asking questions.


Happy Tapping

    That is really helpful 🙂 Thank you for posting this. I have not really used tapping but am aware of it. I never thought of using it for writer’s block.

      You can use it for anything. You are only limited by your imagination. Oh, and you can even use it to expand your imagination. If you have any questions, pop over to my Facebook group and ask them in there. Happy Tapping.

    Madonna, i have been introduced to EFT and know that it works. My current post talks about how I used it in a stressful situation in an ER setting. Thanks for spreading the word. I also applied to your FB EFT page.

      Great David. It certainly works in stressful situations and quickly. Once you realise what else you can use it for you will be amazed and happy.

    Tapping works a treat…re writing I find that if I am doing businessy stff then it’s hard to write. Have to kickstart that right brain with a daydream first.

    Thanks for sharing Madonna x

        Oh I mean that if I am doing sales or accounts then try to write straight off the back of that I can;t….I need to let my imagination cut loose for a while to start the creative side of my brain. Does that make more sense?

    Tapping is such a fantastic tool that is so simple and quick to use too – I have myself written childrens books, created character and music for them to use and worked with people both individually and with practitioners to help them help even more people discover this great technique…

    Brilliant share and highlights that so many people forget to simply “tap” on “anything”!

    Well done for spreading the word about EFT and how much it can help you get unstuck

      Hi Louise,

      Absolutely agree. It helps with everything.

    I personally have not found much benefit from EFT although I have friends who swear by it, so maybe it’s just me.

    When I struggle with writer’s block, I write free-form (without worrying about spelling or punctuation) for 15 minutes without stopping. For me, writer’s block happens, not when I don’t have anything to write about, but when what I want to write about doesn’t fit into the subject that I *need* to write about.

      Hi Lesa,

      The biggest difficulty with using tapping initially is the words you use. Get that right and tapping changes your life.

      Why do you need to to write on certain things?

    Madonna, I started to research Tapping a few years ago and didn’t have much success, it could be the words, as you mention above, even though I attended a couple of sessions with a practitioner, but I still believe it works as I’ve seen it happen for others on video and I do follow some EFT email lists – so perhaps you can lead me back to it… I don’t have writers block, just far too much going on to clear my mind, but always lots to write about – however, I know that is just one thing you’ve chosen to highlight today in your post – which I enjoyed, and I will be joining your facebook group, so thank you for sharing today 🙂

    Hi Madonna, I was introduced to EFT last year and although I have not introduced it to my daily personal development routine I love the concept. I think it can work for many issues and blocks in our lives including “writers block”. What a wonderful post…Thank you, ~ Nathalie

      Thanks for that Nathalie,

      Your comments are much appreciated. You seem to be coming from a pretty good place already. Not everyone needs tapping and if your life is wonderful, you probably have no pressing reason to use. It can be used a tool for assisting with goal setting and affirmations. There are multiple uses.
