"Tapping negatively is heavy-duty work. We have heard for decades to repeat positive affirmations about ourselves and situations around us. Dr. Gabor Mate explains why positive affirmations simply don’t work:
As Dr. Michael Kerr points out, 'compulsive optimism is one of the ways we bind our anxiety to avoid confronting it. That form of positive thinking is the coping mechanism of the hurt child. The adult who remains hurt without being aware of it makes this residual defence of the hurt into a life principle.'
He continues, 'Even more fundamentally, not posing those questions is itself a source of stress (author’s emphasis). First, 'positive thinking’ is based on an unconscious belief that we are not strong enough to handle reality. Allowing this fear to dominate engenders a state of childhood apprehension. Whether or not the apprehension is conscious, it is a state of stress.'" (Mate, When the Body Says NO, 244–24)
