TAPPING (EFT)

Most Pressing Issue(s):

“I am depressed.”

“I am full of sadness and despair.”

“I am going to die. I know I am going to die.”

“I am sick and parts of my body are dying."

“I think about my death alot.”

“I might be obsessed with my death.”

“I feel like part of me is dying.”

“I feel like life might be better off without me.”

“Part of me thinks I am not worthy of this life and maybe I don’t deserve it.”

“This life doesn’t really want me here.  No one would notice if I was gone.” 

“Part of me wants to die.”

“I just don’t know if I can do this any longer.”

“My body is dying slowly.”

“I am allowing myself to die.”

Karate Chop Point (KC): 

Even though I think about my death alot, I acknowledge how I feel.

Even though I feel like disappearing might be easier than healing my body and my mind, I choose to honour this feeling right now.  I choose to breathe into this feeling and feel it.  I choose to honour any subconscious desires to die.  I choose to face the truth of my perceived self-worth.  

Even though I am sick and parts of my body are dying off and it really scares and depresses me, I choose to love and accept these feelings.  Even though I feel crazy with thoughts of my death and dying, I choose to accept how I feel right now.  

Even though I have an illness that is physical, it feels like it is also mental and spiritual.  I feel like everything is connected and it feels like part of me doesn’t feel worthy of this life and it feels like part of me doesn’t believe that I deserve health and well-being, and even though all of this is the opposite of what I know I need to do to survive, I am obsessed with how I got here in the first place.  And so, even though I feel all of this deep, dark, heavy energy and confusion about my life, I choose to love and accept myself anyway.  I choose to be open to balancing these thoughts and emotions.  I choose to honour all of my feelings and I choose to be open to loving all aspects of myself.  

Even though I know I can’t keep going in the direction of these thoughts and feelings, I choose to feel them anyway.  I am so full of sadness and despair, I feel so alone and tired, and I’m just not sure what the point is of anything anymore, but I choose to acknowledge all of my feelings.  I am open to accepting this dark and dismal perspective of myself right now, and even though I am not sure how, I am open to honouring my will to give up (either consciously or subconsciously).  

Even though I am sick and I am not sure how to get better, I am open to loving myself exactly as I am.  Even though my health feels so far away - physically, mentally, and spiritually, and the truth is I’m not sure that it is even possible now, or ever, and maybe facing my death is unlikely to make a difference, but I am open to accepting all of these emotions anyway.  I am open to my feelings however dark and depressing they might be.  I think I am also open to feelings hope and increased self-love.  Maybe.  

Even though death and dying can be scary and depressing, I choose to feel these feelings anyway.  Even though I am preoccupied with death and the parts of my body that are in a state of decay, I choose to also consider my life.  I am open to changing my focus from death to life.  I am open to healing my body, mind and spirit and I am open to accepting whatever comes up as a result of that.
