Have you heard of it? I have. I’ve been hearing about tapping for the last couple years, mostly through my “woo woo” friends who also do energy work and other kinds of non-scientific work.
Don’t get me wrong, I believe in the woo woo stuff. But I also have a HIGH BS meter. It wasn’t until I met Nick Ortner that everything changed.
Nick and I are a lot alike. We’re open hearted. We both have a deep desire to change the world, and also both have a high BS meter. Nick is a fellow Hay House author and I met him a little under a year ago in San Jose, CA at a Hay House event.
Nick filled me in on all the science and data of tapping and how it’s helped so many people. Ever the skeptic, I started to KIND of believe him, but still didn’t really believe him.
He told me that his “Tapping Coach” was the best there was. So, I hired her. I wanted to see what it was all about.
Well, tapping changed my life. How? It got down to the root of my fears, it helped me to discover some seriously pain causing core stories about life – and all through a simple process of tapping on the meridian points and saying a few different phrases.
Basically, you just tap on meridian points in the body that send calming signals to the brain, which lowers your stress level. And our brain and body store stress from previous trauma, so the process goes to the depth of our mind/body system.
This past weekend I was with Nick again, we both spoke at the Hay House NYC event. I couldn’t believe what Nick was doing now. He lives in Newtown, CT. That’s right, Newtown.
I heard that Nick was working with some of the parents and children who lost Loved ones in Newtown. They’ve also been working with first responders. I heard that the people they were helping were getting better.
Now, normally I write blogs about “concepts”. But, I was so moved by Nick’s story that I just had to write. Nick is taking tapping and being of service to a whole new level and using it on the ground in Newtown.
Nick and the tapping team even donated $30k out of their own pockets to start up an awesome non-profit that is dedicated to helping heal the Newtown community as well as bringing tapping to the world. Louise Hay even donated $10,000 to the foundation because she believes in it so much.
I was so inspired by Nick and everything he is doing in Newtown. It’s far more powerful than a law or regulation; it’s REAL work on the ground healing those that have been hurt by this tragedy. And LONG after the news crews have left, Nick and his team are still on the ground effecting positive change in Newtown.
If you feel called to help, you can. Nick just wrapped up the 2013 Tapping World Summit. And it’s available to buy for one more day. They are raising another $50,000 to support Newtown, CT and are donating all their sales until they hit $50,000 to the foundation that is doing all this amazing work.

There is also an awesome video explaining the amazing work that Nick and his team are doing.
How has tapping changed your life? How has what Nick is doing inspired you to be of service in your community?
