EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a very simple and effective tapping practice for adults as well as children. It is universally used by professionals as well as novice for physical, emotional, and performance issues. Before beginning a series of tapping, rate the intensity of how you are feeling from 0-10 (10 being the most upset). This will measure how often you may need to repeat the tapping series. The Tapping is done with two or more fingertips. Read the script out loud, allowing your emotions to be heard.
Start with the following Karate Chop Set-up Script For Fear:
Begin tapping side hand and repeat the following out loud before each of the rounds you do.
1. Even though I am so afraid and don’t know what to do. I love and accept myself.
2. Even though my stomach does a flip whenever I think of.___, and how afraid I am. I love and accept myself anyway.
3. Even though I don’t feel in control, and that makes me even more afraid, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
You can tap with the fingertips of either hand, most people use their dominant hand. Where there are two identical points on each side of the body, you can choose to do only one side or both. Again, reading the script out loud allows emotions to be heard.
Karate Set-Up (above script)
Tap five times while repeating script on each of the following points:
Top of Head: This fear
