Tapping Script for Healing from the Loss of Your Brother

For a downloadable PDF of this tapping script, click here.


Losing a sibling is one of the most profoundly painful experiences we can have. Whether our relationships with them are primarily positive, negative, or a mix of both, our experiences with our siblings are woven into the fabric of who we are, and when they are gone, the sense of loss can be devastating. Thankfully, with EFT, this pain doesn't have to be permanent. What we learn when we tap our way through loss is that while love is forever, grief doesn't have to be. 



As with all of my tapping scripts, these statements can be used as is, or modified in any way that makes them resonate more fully with your experience. Some of them will fit for you, and some will not. Just use the ones that fit your experience and have an emotional charge.


You may notice that when you start tapping on these statements, thoughts and feelings will arise that you can then turn into 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 don’t know about you, but I’m not feeling super excited about getting my taxes done. Sometimes I get them done early in the year, which is a huge relief, and frees up a lot of bandwidth which would otherwise get gobbled up by stress and worry. This is not one of those years. For myriad reasons, this year I haven’t even gotten started yet, and the more time goes by, the larger the knot...

Once you've learned the basics of EFT, you can give yourself a great (even life-changing) tapping session. However, oftentimes, when people set out to use EFT on their own, they just tap for a few minutes here and there when they're stressed-out, without giving themselves what they need to really go in-depth and get to the root of the issues that are causing them to suffer.

Here are the...

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...

Though EFT tapping is incredibly effective for grief recovery, most people don’t fully recover from losing a loved one. Throughout the past 10 years as an EFT practitioner, I’ve observed 5 main reasons for this. In today’s post, I’ll go over each one, including examples of how these inner obstacles to healing tend to present.

The annoying thing about EFT is that it only works if you do it. Those of us who have been tapping for awhile can attest to this frustrating fact. The thing is, even though tapping is so powerful, a lot of the times when we need it most, we don't do it.

We tell ourselves we're too busy to tap right now, or we pretend the intense pain or stress we're feeling is no big deal, or, my persona...

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:
