What you should know about Proxy Tapping
Tapping by proxy, or surrogate tapping, is where we use EFT for someone else who isn’t present or doesn’t use EFT. It could be for our pets, for a situation, for our former aspects (us in the past – or future) or could even be for planetary healing. I have found it so useful where for whatever reason it’s not feasible for a person to tap, but I’d really love to send them some positive energy. I have used it for animals also, asking Archangel Fhelyai to help.
Is there anything we need to beware of in proxy work? Well for me there are two considerations. I was taught in my energy healing journey that it’s best where possible to ask permission of the recipient before doing energy work. So as a rule, I will do this if it is feasible, as it feels to me the right thing to do. And if it isn’t possible I ask my angels and sense whether it feels okay or not.
If you are unsure you can ask that the energy and positive intention goes to something or someone nearby if it cannot be received by the person in question.
Other things to consider: if you have a strong desire to heal someone or something you always need to check for cords. That is, a toxic exchange between you and whomever or whatever it is. There is nothing wrong with wanting to heal or help, but because we are human this desire can sometimes become unhealthy if we cannot send healing intentions and then detach properly.
Healers are usually kind, caring people who are sensitive to the needs of others. And with this can come a desire to rescue, fix, change and other patterns which may show up as being of the detriment of the healer. So the important thing to remember when you send healing to others is to detach afterwards. There are many ways you can do this, it is the intention that is important.
In Reiki I was shown the gesture of crossing the hands over the chest, making an x, and stating the intention to lovingly detach. You can do this in silence. In the featured video ‘Angel EFT Proxy Tapping for Refugees’ I say at the end I say ‘I choose to release this prayer with love.’ Another method of detaching.
You might also use the violet flame, or ask Archangel Michael to cut any cords between you and the person or situation. I have a free visualisation where you do this with Archangel Michael and Archangel Raphael.
You can also use proxy tapping to clear the energy of places. You can send it to yourself in the future in an exam or interview. As always call in the angels, get them on board as well. For a quick reference guide of which Archangel to call upon click here, although it’s fine to call upon any Archangel or group of angels of your choice.
Proxy tapping is a great way to do something positive instead of worrying or getting into fear thinking and feeling helpless. Another blog on proxy tapping is Proxy Tapping with the Cosmic Diamond Violet Flame.
