Tapping Script for Raising Self-Esteem and Increasing Confidence

As you know, having healthy levels of self-esteem and confidence is critical to your overall health, happiness, and success.

Likewise, having wounds to your self-esteem and confidence can have far-reaching and long-lasting effects.

Everything from your career, finances, relationships, and physical health, can be affected by feelings of low self-worth, which can hold you back for a lifetime.

I see this in my work with clients every day, and it is heartbreaking. Thanks to the gentle power of tapping, I also get to help people break free from these issues, as the wounds to their self-esteem are healed, allowing them to realize their worth, and feel good about who they are and what they have to offer.

For most people, it can be tricky to pinpoint why their self-esteem and confidence aren't what they would like them to be.

It often takes some sleuthing and strategizing to uncover the painful experiences that have given rise to limiting beliefs about the self, as well as hurtful self-judgments that have nothing to do with who the person actually is, and everything to do with wounds from the past that were never healed.

Which leads us to today's tapping script. I wrote it to help you uncover, identify, and release any past traumas, limiting beliefs, and self-judgments that could be keeping your confidence and self-esteem from being what they could be.

Even if you already think of yourself as a confident person with healthy self-esteem, my guess is that at least a few of the statements on the script will resonate with you, indicating areas that need healing.

So take a look at it, see what fits, and tap it out. Every part of your life will benefit from this healing work, and you deserve every one of those benefits!



Lack of self-esteem is what causes wars because people who really love themselves don't go out and try to fight other people ... It's the root of all the problems.  Oprah Winfrey





Read through the statements, and give each one two numbers. The first number is how true the statement feels to you on a scale of 0 to 10. The second number is the emotional charge the statement has on a scale of 0 to 10.


Pay close attention to how you really feel when you read these statements. Your initial reaction to many, if not all of them, may be, "No, I don't believe that at all." But if you feel into each statement for a moment, you may notice a secondary response. While intellectually you may not think that the statement is true for you, at the same time, the statement may feel true for you. If it feels true for you at all (meaning that it’s a 1 or above), tap on it.

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 either feel true, have an emotional charge, or both.

You may notice that when you start tapping on 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. Tap each statement down to 0 before moving on to another one.


There is a lot of material here. 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 another time to tap out the rest of the statements that have a charge for you, either in terms of believing it, or in terms of carrying an emotional charge, or both. 



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 don’t know about you, but I’m not feeling super excited about getting my taxes done. Sometimes I get them done early in the year, which is a huge relief, and frees up a lot of bandwidth which would otherwise get gobbled up by stress and worry. This is not one of those years. For myriad reasons, this year I haven’t even gotten started yet, and the more time goes by, the larger the knot...

Once you've learned the basics of EFT, you can give yourself a great (even life-changing) tapping session. However, oftentimes, when people set out to use EFT on their own, they just tap for a few minutes here and there when they're stressed-out, without giving themselves what they need to really go in-depth and get to the root of the issues that are causing them to suffer.

Here are the...

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.

One of the easiest ways to bring your feelings to the surface to be named, tapped out, and...

Though EFT tapping is incredibly effective for grief recovery, most people don’t fully recover from losing a loved one. Throughout the past 10 years as an EFT practitioner, I’ve observed 5 main reasons for this. In today’s post, I’ll go over each one, including examples of how these inner obstacles to healing tend to present.

The annoying thing about EFT is that it only works if you do it. Those of us who have been tapping for awhile can attest to this frustrating fact. The thing is, even though tapping is so powerful, a lot of the times when we need it most, we don't do it.

We tell ourselves we're too busy to tap right now, or we pretend the intense pain or stress we're feeling is no big deal, or, my persona...

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:
