“EFT To Love Myself”
Gary Craig taught us the power of the acceptance phrase in EFT:
“I deeply and completely love and accept myself” and as we start our healing journey with EFT, we recognize that some of us have a difficult time saying: “I Love Myself.” This might come from beliefs we learned when we were small children. Our parents did not know how to express love, or as Gary Craig said once: “We misunderstood their lack of attention for lack of love.”
We ended up believing that they did not love us, and our perception now is that there is something wrong with us and we are not lovable. Therefore, how can we love ourselves?
We often recommend some of our clients to do “Mirror Work”. We ask them to do their EFT Rounds in front of the mirror and carefully observe their expressions, what are their eyes telling them? At what energy point did they let go a sigh? What were they saying when they yawned? And we let them know that these are manifestations of energy moving and clearing blocks in their systems, which allows room for healthier beliefs, physical healing and peace.
For this EFT Round, we are suggesting that you tap in front of the mirror and observe your feelings and your reactions…
Are you ready?
Note: If you agree to tap this EFT Round, You are agreeing to take full responsibility for your own well-being.
Setting the Intention to Heal:
Tap side of your hand or your favorite energy point and say:
I have the intention to deeply love and accept myself
I intend to live my life loving myself and radiating love
Rate the emotional intensity of your problem on a scale of 0-10 (SUDS RATING- Subjective Units of Distress)
10 meaning – your highest intensity (I feel terrible)
0 meaning- no intensity at all (I feel happy)
Drink water, remove cell and jewelry
Remember that these EFT Phrases will trigger your own memories and emotions, write them down and then tap them away until you do not feel an emotional intensity. You deserve Peace! So keep tapping, keep tapping!
EFT Set Up Phrases:
Even though I might be feeling that I am not worthy of love and that I cannot love myself, I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself (If you feel that you cannot say “I deeply love myself,” substitute that phrase for I ACCEPT THAT I AM HAVING THIS PROBLEM)
Even though somehow I was programmed to not love myself, “they” could not love me as the precious child that I was. I recognize today, that it is their loss. I choose to remember that I came to this world full of love and I can love myself
Even though I might be believing that I am not lovable, I am defective somehow. I know that it is a lie. I am lovable just because I exist
Even though my actions show that I am not accepting of myself. I choose to take care of myself, so my behavior proves that I accept and value myself
Now tap on the following energy points while repeating your negative reminder phrases: (if possible tap on both side of the face and body) (use 3 or 4 fingers of one hand to tap on the energy points)
Crown of head: I am not worthy of love
Beginning of eyebrow: I cannot love myself
Side of eye: “They could not love me as I was”
Under eye: I just don’t love myself
Under nose: They could not love the precious child that I was
Chin: They suggested that I was defective and I believed them
Collarbone: I show with my actions that I don’t accept myself
Under arm: My behavior says that I don’t value myself
Crown of head: I don’t feel safe loving and accepting myself just the way I am
Take a slow healing breath in and out and release your old and false programming. Release it from your MindandBody!
How do you feel?
Rate your intensity level on a scale of 0-10, do several rounds until your intensity is down to ZERO.
Now tap Reframing and Positive Choices on each of the following energy points:
Crown of head: Deep within me, there is an abundance of love
Beginning of eyebrow: I am generous with my love as I am learning to love and accept myself and others
Side of eye: It was their choice to love and accept me, they are responsible for what they did or didn’t do
Under eye: I am leaving the pain from my past behind me, and I am clearing out my need to suffer
Under nose: I am ready to love myself and to radiate love!
Chin: I realize that the more love I project, the more love I attract
Collarbone: I am feeling safe in the world!
Under arm: I am being true to myself as I love and accept myself
Crown of head: Because Love is my true nature!
Take a deep breath in and out and relax your mind and body!
Make your hand into a fist and gently tap on the middle of your chest (your heart center)
I am thankful for my wonderful mindandbody!
I am grateful because I deeply and completely love and accept myself
I am grateful because I am worthy of radiating love and receiving love
I choose to feel grateful because it helps me to feel good!
I am allowing myself to infuse my mindandbody with the healing energy of love and acceptance
I am grateful because I accept myself just the way I am
I really appreciate that I am finally safe and free to love and accept myself
As you do this EFT exercise you recognize that you are feeling better about yourself. Have fun with the process of discovering that your true nature is LOVE and that it is possible for you to change and begin to really love and accept yourself just the way you are.
