Tapping Script for Making Housework Easier

Some people are so-called neat freaks, and others are so-called slobs, while most people are somewhere in the middle of that spectrum.

 

Wherever you happen to be in the relative scheme of all things housework, if keeping up with household tasks feels like a chore for you (no pun intended), this tapping script will help.

 

That's because with anything in life that we need or want to accomplish, inner blocks can keep us from doing it with the ease and grace that we otherwise would.

 

As you may have noticed, inner blocks can even completely prevent us from accomplishing what we set out to do. Housework is no exception.

 

Some of the issues, beliefs, and feelings that the prospect of housework can trigger (often unconsciously) include:

 

  • Feeling bad about yourself. For example, because a parent, teacher, or other adult would say critical or unkind things to you about the work you were doing or were supposed to do.

 

  • FOMO (fear of missing out). For example, when you were growing up, your friends were all going to the beach on Saturday, but you couldn’t go because you had to mow the lawn or take care of other chores every Saturday. Now whenever you have to do housework, you feel dragged down by feelings of wishing you were doing something else, or even a conscious fear of missing out on other things that you could be doing.

 

  • Sadness or loneliness. For example, if you grew up feeling unsupported, criticized, or unappreciated by your caregivers regarding chores you were expected to do, these feelings can be triggered as an adult whenever you even think about doing the dishes, laundry, vacuuming, etc.

 

  • Resentment. For example, if you were treated unkindly regarding household chores, you might resent the person who treated you that way, and those feelings come up (often unconsciously) every time you’re faced with things that need to be done around the house.

 

  • Jealousy or envy. For example, if you had to do certain chores which a sibling didn’t have to, painful feelings of jealousy or envy might be triggered whenever you have to do that particular task as an adult (again, this could be unconscious, but cause emotional pain and resistance nonetheless).

 

 

BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH THIS SCRIPT

 

If you read through this script and tap through the statements that feel either charged, true, or both for you, these are some of the benefits that you will likely receive:

 

  • Greater ease with getting housework done

  • Less resistance to doing tasks that you find unpleasant, boring, annoying, etc.

  • More energy when it comes to doing household tasks

  • A feeling of “effortless effort” around housework—as though you’re able to get things get done without trying

  • Freedom from beliefs, memories, associations related to housework that have been weighing you down (these are often unconscious, and EFT helps us become aware of them even as we’re tapping them away)

  • A cleaner, tidier, home!

 

Even if you keep your home as neat as a pin, I’m guessing there will be something in this script that’s helpful to you. Perhaps it will help make the process of keeping your home sparkling clean even easier, or uncover a painful childhood memory that you can now heal with tapping.

And if you’re someone who struggles to keep up with laundry, dishes, tidying up, and the countless other tasks involved in running a household, tapping through this script just might change your life.

 

"I hate housework! You make the beds, you do the dishes and six months later you have to start all over again." ~ Joan Rivers
 

 

 

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.

 

If you decide that this is the best course of action for you, and you would like to work with me, you can schedule a session here. If you feel that another EFT practitioner would be a better fit for you, click here to access a directory of practitioners.

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.
