Tapping Script to Heal from the Death of Your Dog

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.

 

 

Here are the tapping statements:

My dog died and I am really, really sad.

I loved my dog so much and I can't believe he/she is gone.

___________ has been my constant companion for a long time, and I don't know what I'm going to do without him/her.

I really wish ____________ was still here.

I would give anything to have ___________ back.

I really wish there was something I could have done to save __________.

Sometimes I felt like ___________ was my only friend, and now she's/he's gone, and I feel really alone.

I miss ___________ so much that I don't know what to do.

Ever since my dog died, all I want to do is cry.

It's hard to see how sad my kids are over losing _____________.

I wish there was something I could do to help my kids heal from this loss.

I loved ___________ with all my heart, and I'm so sad that he's/she's gone.

I'm really not ready to say goodbye to ____________.

I'll never get to see __________ again and I am so, so sad.

Putting __________ down was the hardest thing I've ever had to do.

The hardest part about losing ____________ is missing his/her sweet little face.

___________ was a part of our family and we all miss him/her so much.

I wish that dogs lived as long as people do. 

___________ was always there for me, and now he's/she's gone.

Coming home is so hard now without ___________ here to greet me.

I'm really lonely without ____________.

Our house seems really empty without ____________.

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. 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:

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...

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.

When it comes to healing with EFT tapping, the key is to be as thorough as possible in unpacking whatever issue you're working on. This is easier said than done, but there are some tapping tools you can reach for that will get you results every time.

What follows are five of my tried and true techniques for making sure every aspect of an issue I'm working on with a client has been uncover...

Want to make more money? Taking 2 minutes to identify the limiting beliefs in this article which apply to you is a powerful first step. Because the truth is, no matter how hard you work, or how talented you are, these beliefs can stunt your earning potential.

Looking at these seven reasons and how they may resonate with your experience will help you to identify and release inner obstacles to healing. Though it can take courage and a lot of honesty with one's self, the results of this work are nothing short of life-changing.
