Feel with EFT
I give myself 100% permission to have and experience the emotion of__________*
This enables you to stop struggling not to feel________ Stop trying to avoid the emotion of__________ Stop resisting _________ Just stop. Give your self permission to stop trying.
Follow these three steps the next time you find your self avoiding, resisting, struggling, dreading feeling the feeling of_______.
1. Pay attention, adopt an attitude of curiosity and observance. Observe how the emotion of ________shows up for you and observe and pay attention to whatever happens. Notice when the resistance, struggle, judgement, criticism or avoidance appears.
2. Tap on whatever shows up. See the tapping as a way of helping you to dissolve the energetic blocks to fully feeling this emotion 100%. This will help you to process and feel this emotion, maybe for the first time ever, and it also clears the way for you to feel this emotion in the future without experiencing any energetic blocks or disturbances.
3. Breathe, keep breathing and pay attention to when your breath becomes shorter, more shallow or quickens and, again, tap on whatever shows up.
* Don't be surprised if, when you say this out loud, you immediately come up with all sorts of tailenders like “Who am I to give myself permission” or “I can't do that!” or “I can't feel that, it's unbearable/bad/unacceptable” and so on. Tap on these tailenders, the tailenders themselves are actually a great way of getting to the bottom of why you are resisting and struggling with certain emotions. Specific memories may pop up that you can tap on too, events and memories where you came to the conclusion or decision that this emotion__________was not safe to feel, not safe to express, or the consequences of feeling or expressing it would have been/are___________.
