Feelings of betrayal

Each betrayal begins with trust ~ Phish

We can often feel betrayed by different things in life. Try this tapping script if you have ever felt betrayed. EFT short cut diagram and procedure.

Even though I feel betrayed by ... (for example, my mother, my father, my body, myself) I accept myself anyway

Even though it really hurts to be betrayed, I accept my hurt

Even though being betrayed by ... feels ... it's ok to feel that way

Top of the head: It's hard to trust ...
Eyebrow: I feel betrayed
Side of eye: By ...
Under the eye: It's hard to take
Under the nose: It makes me feel ...
Under the chin: I want to protect myself
Collar bone: From this hurt
Under the arm: I want to close myself off

Top of the head: From being hurt
Eyebrow: I'd like to shut down
Side of eye: My feelings
Under the eye: Of betrayal
Under the nose: So I don't feel hurt
Under the chin: Or the pain
Collar bone: Of being betrayed
Under the arm: I'd like

Top of the head: To not feel this hurt
Eyebrow: I accept how I feel
Side of eye: I'm not going to fight how I feel
Under the eye: I feel the way I feel
Under the nose: Even though I don't want to feel this way
Under the chin: I do
Collar bone: And that's ok
Under the arm: Well, it's not really but I feel this way anyway

Continue tapping until you find relief, be specific about how you feel betrayed, you may have many memories to tap on. Stay with it and be persistent.
