What bothers you? Notice what tension, pain, memory or craving is there. Name it. Be really specific and detailed. How does it make you feel? Can you give it an intensity number on a scale of 0 to 10?
B – Balancing
As you tap the “Karate Chop Point” – the middle of the outside edge of your palm, say three times:
“Even though I have (this problem), I deeply and completely love and accept myself.”
This is known as performing the Set-Up.
C – Clearing
Tap with two fingers on the eight acupressure points saying a few reminder words about the problem – “this problem” – to focus your attention. Tap the crown of your head first with your finger tips. Then tap the rest of the points, about
7-9 times on each point.
Take a deep breath and close your eyes for a moment.
Tune into the problem.
Notice what has changed or what emotion emerges.
Measure your intensity level again and repeat ABC on the remainder of the problem.
As youtap the karate chop point, say: “Even though I still have some of this remaining (problem), I deeply and completely love and accept myself anyway.” Adjust your reminder phrase accordingly and remember to say it as you tap through the points: “This remaining problem.”
Continue tapping until you feel better. If you feel like it, move on to tapping for another aspect of the problem.
