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 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.
