The tip of the tongue phenomenon. We’ve all experienced it. You know you have some bit of information in your head -- perhaps someone’s name -- but you just can’t seem to access it. It’s often quite frustrating.
Next time this happens to you, try using the Yang Bai acupressure point. Take your thumb and your index or middle finger and place them gently on your forehead, with one finger above each pupil, halfway between your eyebrows and hairline. Hold them there steadily, and expect to remember. Breathe slowly and deeply. You can even massage the point lightly, if you’d prefer.
This might feel familiar to you, since we do it naturally sometimes. We close our eyes, touch or tap that point and say, “Oh, what is that guy’s name?”
Touching this point can also help you to clear negative thoughts, release undesirable patterns, cultivate mental health and increase overall happiness.
