However, sometimes it can be tricky to use as a self-help technique because we are in the middle of what we are tapping on.
When we are on the inside of the problem we may be affected by the emotions of the problem itself and it's hard to have a clear perspective on the problem when you are in it.
It's hard to read the label when you are inside the jar.
This is why working with another person can be so helpful. They are on the outside of our distress - they don't feel it and they can sometimes see what is going on more clearly.
But there is never another tapper around when you need one!
What if you could take a more dispassionate perspective when you are working on your own stuff?
What if you could more easily see what needs to be done and more easily work with it?
3rd Person tapping helps you do just that. By asking surprisingly simple questions we can work with ourselves as if we were someone else and gain a little bit of extra distance and perspective to help our tapping do the work it needs to do.
