Many people experience some level of speech anxiety when they have to speak in front of a group; however it is known that public speaking is in fact high on the list of people's greatest fear.
Some of the most common symptoms of speech anxiety are: shaking, sweating, butterflies in the stomach, dry mouth, rapid heartbeat, and squeaky voice.
I have read accounts where people will go as far as drugging themselves in order to stand up in front of a group of people and give a speech.
The good news is!
I have witnesses many times how applying Modern Energy Tapping will enable a person to overcome public speaking anxiety and be empowered to deliver a speech with confidence and elegance.
