To use this process, you will need some privacy, a copper penny and the ability to reduce your discomfort to a single emotionally-charged statement.
A. The statement
An example might be something like:
“I hate it when (insert name) disrespects me and treats me like garbage. He’s (or she’s) a dirty rotten (insert expletive)!”
Make certain to include his/her name and some inappropriate name-calling (even if you might not do it in front of anyone in real life) and make sure that when you speak the statement you muster up all the bad feelings you possibly can.
Say the statement out-loud just to make sure it is an emotional match to how hurt or mad you are.
B. Place and charge the penny
There are three location of your body that you will hold the penny flat against your body with your non-dominant hand.
Just above and between the eyebrows against your forehead
Over your heart
Mid-way over your stomach-area.
Starting with the head location, hold the penny flat against your forehead, repeat your emotionally-charged statement (you should feel the negative emotion as much as you possibly can) and charge the penny.
As you repeat your statement, tap the penny at a comfortably rapid pace with a finger (or multiple fingers, if that is more comfortable for you) of your dominant hand.
This charges the penny with the electrical components of the emotional charge from your body.
Repeat as many times as necessary, repeating the phrase and charging the penny at the head, heart and stomach locations.
Usually three rounds of head, heart and stomach will yield a major reduction in your level of pain and/or discomfort.
C. Discard the penny
Smile. You feel better. You’re done with that penny and statement. You will find that you can now verbalize that very statement without feeling the emotional pain connected to it. Congratulations!
It’s so effective, you might like to get another penny and try another painful emotion that you’ve kept bottled up inside.
