Sometimes you just need a break from stressful and challenging situations. You need to create an emotional/energetic distance between yourself and a lingering image/sound/feel of a situation. This simple technique with an addition of tapping helps you create that space – separation – and hence diffuse such situations. It can provide a much needed respite, and many a times also help to let go of stubborn situations.
