Tapping Script for Releasing Painful Feelings and Beliefs About Aging

EFT Tapping Script for Healing from the Loss of Your Mother

The first time I freaked out about aging was on my 25th birthday. I remember thinking, "Oh my God, I'm a quarter of a century old! I'm running out of time!"


Though it sounds silly, the feelings were very real. If only I had had tapping back then!

Most people I know struggle with the changes that aging brings. And if they're too young to experience wrinkles, gray hair, stiff joints, memory issues, and sagging body parts, they worry about these things happening to them down the line.


I've been meaning to write a tapping script for releasing painful feelings and beliefs for quite awhile. It's been on the back burner for months, quietly simmering away.

When a client recently came in wanting to work on her painful emotions and beliefs about aging, I knew the time had come to attend to this, so I finally sat down and wrote this script.

 

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.

I wish I could have the wisdom of old age without the wrinkles, gray hair, creaky joints, and cognitive issues that come with it.

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:

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.

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.

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...

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.
