Tapping Script for Healing the Pain of Unmet Childhood Need for Attention

EFT Tapping Script for Healing from the Loss of Your Mother

When children don't get the attention that they need, the issues that this creates can last a lifetime, manifesting in many different ways.

This tapping script is one that has been requested by many of my Facebook followers, whom I polled back in October. It is designed to address the pain and patterns that not getting enough attention can cause, so that they can be tapped away.

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.
