EFT for the Holiday Blues

 

For many people, the holidays can be a very difficult time. There are myriad reasons for this. For those who have lost a loved one, the holiday season can bring about a resurgence of grief during what would normally be a joyful time. For people who grew up in dysfunctional families, the time of year when many are turning toward family to celebrate special days can make them feel isolated and more aware than ever of their painful family circumstances.

 

For many others, the holidays are a mixed bag--lots of joy and fun combined with family stress, financial worries, and an overbooked schedule.

And of course, lots of people come from cultures and traditions that don't celebrate any major holidays during what many people around the world think of as the holiday season, and yet they still have to put up with the annoyance of significant inconveniences such as lots of extra traffic, major crowds where they're just trying to run their errands, and holiday decorations and marketing everywhere they look. 

Whatever the reason is, if the thought of the approaching holidays brings you stress or pain of any kind, this tapping script is for you. 

 

 

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.

 

 

PLEASE NOTE​

 

When doing EFT/tapping on your own, if you get stuck, aren't getting the results you want, or would simply like to have the support and guidance of an experienced professional, I recommend working with an EFT practitioner.
