Tapping Script for Painful Feelings and Beliefs

About Rejection

For a downloadable PDF of this script, click here.


I created this script to help you release pain and/or limiting beliefs you may have about rejection. Read through the statements on this script, and give each one a number between 0 and 10, which gauges the emotional intensity and/or stress you experience when you think about it.


It's very common for our minds to say one thing about a tapping statement or belief, and have our bodies say the opposite. With EFT, it's important to go with how you feel about a statement, not with what you think about it, because we're addressing your emotional truth, so that you can then heal it with tapping. 


You may notice that when you start tapping on these statements, thoughts and feelings will arise that you can 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.


I recommend tapping each statement down to 0 (or no higher than a 2) before moving on to another one. There is a lot of material here, so just do a few statements per tapping session, or no more than an hour of tapping per session. You can return to this script at any time to tap out the remaining statements that feel charged for you.
