MONDAY MUSE: POPPY DELBRIDGE

Mindset is everything and knowing how to work with your brain rather than against it is a powerful thing....

 

As a female founded brand, BELLA's mission is to celebrate our female trailblazers to empower and inspire you along your journey. That’s why we’ve started our Monday Muse series. Each Monday, to start your week on a high, we will highlight one woman who’s paving the way in their own field and in life. Here, they’ll answer questions on everything, from how they started out to challenges and highlights, plus beauty advice they think everyone should know, along with their favourite top trick. What's better is that you can ask them anything via the comment section below! 

This week: Poppy Delbridge, Tapping Queen! Instagram - @poppydelbridge

Tell us about yourself

My name is Poppy Delbridge and I am on a mission to raise the frequency of the world. I want to help people feel more like themselves and create more possibilities in every aspect of their life. To do this, I use a technique called Rapid Tapping, which is a strategic way to achieve your goals and manifest your life whilst reducing anxiety. 

What is rapid tapping and how did you get into it?  

With its roots in acupressure, rapid tapping has evolved from Thought Field Therapy (TFT) to Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). It’s a form of emotional therapy that uses your fingertips to tap on certain meridian points on the face and body to clear emotional tension, change habits, cure phobias and even release physical pain.

Rapid tapping is my way of life and I’ve been using it for more than a decade. It's intrinsic to everything I do and was originally taught to me by my mum.  

What is the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given? 

Focus on what you do want, not on what you don’t want. 

Show us your best beauty hack 

My best beauty hack is actually rapid tapping! Rapid tapping helps to enhance collagen levels as it reduces cortisol. Stress triggers a catabolic hormone which depletes collagen levels as it breaks down skin tissue. This then causes the sebaceous gland to go into overdrive, resulting in inflammation leading to a compromised skin barrier, increased acne and skin redness and blocked pores. 

Rapid tapping slows down cortisol production by lowering inflammation and by supporting collagen levels to recharge, you are naturally able to achieve a clear, healthy complexion, alongside a strengthened skin barrier.

What is your go to make up look? 

I have quite a signature look of a paired down base, fluttery lashes and a red lip of sorts. 

On my base, I wear concealer and then ‘bronze’ with fake tan. For a bit of colour I love pinching my cheeks to get the blood flowing. I’m fortunate to have long, upright lashes so just use a few swipes of mascara on these, I’m really enjoying the BELLA WANDERLASH one! Then my lips tend to be a various shade of red, often with a red polish to match too.

What insecurities have you overcome and how? 

I’m very fortunate to know what my purpose is, and I think a lot of people don’t have that luxury. When I started rapid tapping,  people weren’t accepting of it and didn’t quite understand why I would leave a full-time, well paid job to pursue it. Focusing on the ‘why’ helped me to overcome this, and is at the heart of everything I do - it remained my driving force during the times when others would doubt me. 

What are you manifesting for 2023?

I’m always manifesting! But I’m really excited for a big new phase, following on from my book launch. We are planning on bringing more people into rapid tapping and training people too, so that rapid tapping can become more accessible. I’ve typically only worked in the luxury space, but I’m excited to create more affordable options so that more people can benefit from the power of rapid tapping.

How do you love yourself? 

By doing the things I want to do, not the things I’ve been told to do. We are told all the time that we should be doing something, or that we have to do something. And when we do what we want, we are often asked why. 

I think doing things which are authentic to you is the best way to show yourself love as it helps you to action your desires.

How do you face hardships in your life?

We all face hardships in life, and I think the key to dealing with these is knowing how to use and create the tools to overcome them. Mindset is everything and knowing how to work with your brain rather than against it is a powerful thing. I try to always be present during these times, tap to keep my nervous system balanced and really harness those tools I’ve developed over the years to navigate what is going on.

What’s something that people would be surprised to know about you? 

I think most people would be surprised to know that I’m a mother of a quite grown up, teenage boy. For most of my media career, before I switched to tapping, I worked as a single mother.
