Once you identify the negative emotion that you are experiencing, focus on the finger that represents it. Then, wrap all your fingers around the one that represents the negative emotion and maintain the grasp until you feel the pulse. Keep the grasp fro about 2 minutes. If you experience more than one negative emotion, repeat the same procedure with the corresponding fingers.
