Tapping Script for Releasing Debt Stress and Trauma

For a downloadable PDF of this script, click here.

Being in debt is one of the most stressful experiences a person can have. It can cause sleepless nights, feelings of shame, regret, hopelessness, and despair. These feelings can then cause a kind of paralysis, so that taking action to get out of debt becomes difficult, if not impossible. When this happens, EFT can be a lifesaver. As you tap away the painful emotions that are stuck in your body-mind, you'll begin to see solutions to what may have previously seemed like a hopeless situation.

Even if you don't have any debt right now, stress and trauma from past debt could still be affecting you. One way to find out is to read the tapping statements below, and see if any of them feel stressful or upsetting to you as you think about them. If so, that indicates places in you that are in need of healing, and you can create that healing by tapping on the statements that have an emotional charge for you.


As is the case with all of my tapping scripts, the statements below can be used as is, or modified in any way that makes them resonate more fully with your experience. Also, you may notice that when you start tapping on one of these statements, thoughts and feelings will arise that you can then use as new tapping statements, which will then give rise to still more thoughts and feelings, which you can use to create additional tapping statements, and so on.


I call this following the thread, and it’s a very efficient way to heal and release a lot of painful feelings in a short amount of time.


If, when working with this tapping script, you get stuck, aren't getting the results you'd like to get, or would simply like to have the support and guidance of an experienced professional, I recommend working with a trained EFT practitioner.

I've been an EFT practitioner for over 10 years now, and I'm still learning new ways to use this incredibly powerful tool. I hope you'll try out many of the ones in this article. You'll be amazed by the countless positive changes it brings to your life!

Every fear is rooted in something. Sometimes it's a traumatic event, sometimes it's a belief, and sometimes it's a combination of both. In order to release the fear, you have to identify and release what gave rise to it. Here's how:

There's no getting around it. Grief is an integral part of life. Even if you've never lost a loved one, no doubt you've lost something else that was important to you. Maybe it was a home, a job, your health, a period in your life, or a prized possession. And if you haven't yet lost a loved one, chances are you will.

Are you hurting about an event from your past and are not quite sure how to release it with EFT? Here's an easy to follow list of steps to guide you through the process:

1) Name the memory. For example: My husband cheated on me.

2) Give a number between 0 and 10 to the emotional intensity you experience when you feel into this memory.

3) Now put the memory title into an EFT set-up statement...

As long as we're carrying the past around inside us (which is just what happens to us as human beings--it's not a choice, and it's not our fault), it will continue to affect our present day lives--the choices we make, how we see the world, and the extent to which we're able to realize our potential. 

Though the weight of our emotional baggage can feel overwhelming at times, there is a fin...

One of the things I often hear from my clients and students is that they don't know how to come up with effective tapping statements. It's important to remember that tapping statements are simply a tool to keep you focused on the issue, and it’s focusing on the issue while tapping that releases it.

One of the easiest ways to bring your feelings to the surface to be named, tapped out, and...
