Tapping Script for Healing from the Loss of Your Dog

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

If you've ever suffered the loss of a pet, you know that it can be every bit as painful as losing a human loved one. Regardless of whether the loss you've experienced is brand new or took place decades ago, when EFT is used to heal your grief, the layers of pain simply melt away, leaving in their place a profound sense of peace and acceptance. Though the intensity of grief can make it seem like it will never end, when you use EFT to release it, you soon realize that your sorrow is finite, and that though love is forever, your suffering doesn’t have to be.

Below are some tapping statements to guide you in your healing. 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. Once you start tapping, you may notice thoughts and feelings arising that can be turned into new tapping statements, which will then give rise to more thoughts and feelings that can be used as tapping statements, and so on. By using the statements in this script along with the ones that come to you while you're tapping, you'll find that you are able to heal and release a lot of grief in a short amount of time.

HOW TO USE THIS SCRIPT

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 miss the sound of _________'s paws pitter-pattering across the floor.

___________ was the most loyal and loving friend I've ever had, and I miss him/her so much.

It's really hard to face the fact that __________ is gone.

I wish I could wake up tomorrow and realize that this has all just been a bad dream.

A lot of people don't seem to understand what a big loss this is for me, and that makes me feel even worse.

__________ used to be the one to comfort me when I was sad, and now he's/she's gone.

Every morning when I wake up the loss hits me all over again, and it is really painful.

When a person dies, everyone seems to understand the magnitude of the loss, but when your dog dies, a lot of people seem to think, "He was just a dog—get over it," and that makes me feel really alone in my grief.​

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.

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.

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:
