Tapping script for depression

His high endeavors are an inward light
That makes the path before him always bright
~ William Wordsworth 

Tapping on the karate chop (side of hand) or rubbing the sore spot, say the following set up statements. Be sure to customise this script for you and how you feel. Listen and tap along to the audio on depression.
EFT Shortcut diagram.

Even though everything is such an effort, I acknowledge how I feel

Even though … feels like it's pressing down on me, I acknowledge how it makes me feel

Even though … feels hopeless, I acknowledge how I feel

Top of the head: This feeling
Eyebrow: It feels …
Side of the eye: It's heavy
Under the eye: It weighs a ton
Under the nose: It's weighing me down
Under the chin: … is pressing down on me
Collar bone: I feel …
Under the arm: And that makes me feel …

Top of the head: This heaviness
Eyebrow: This effort
Side of the eye: This weight
Under the eye: ... takes so much effort
Under the nose: … takes all my energy
Under the chin: … is sapping my energy
Collar bone: And zest for life
Under the arm: I've no zest for life

Top of the head: And that feels …
Eyebrow: I'd love to feel light
Side of eye: I'd love to feel buoyant
Under the eye: But don't know if it's possible
Under the nose: Because there's too much weighing me down
Under the chin: I can't get rid of this weight
Collar bone: That's weighing me down
Under the arm: And sapping my energy

Top of the head: What exactly is weighing me down?
Eyebrow: What's making me feel this way?
Side of the eye: I'm open to knowing
Under the eye: I'm open to feeling
Under the nose: I'm open to allowing
Under the chin: I'm open to healing
Collar bone: This depression
Under the arm: I'm willing to feel

Top of the head: And sort through
Eyebrow: What's depressing me
Side of the eye: I'm willing to get clear
Under the eye: On what it is
Under the nose: That's pressing down on me
Under the chin: So I can feel light again
Collar bone: So I can feel free
Under the arm: Of this weight

Top of the head: I'm willing
Eyebrow: To express
Side of eye: How I feel
Under the eye: Even if only to myself
Under the nose: I'm willing to feel
Under the chin: All of my feelings
Collar bone: I'm willing to accept
Under the arm: All of my feelings

Someday perhaps the inner light will shine forth from us, and then we'll need no other light ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

It has warmed up a bit Trisha, it's the coldest it's ever been in Ireland, it was 6C so the snow and ice is melting :-) What's it's like over there? Lovely and sunny? xx
