If we got a penny every time we had a worrisome thought, we’d all be billionaires, or richer. Especially when we’re waiting to see how something will turn out, worry can scoop over our thoughts like it’s no one’s business.
Worry is a disease, slowly eating away at our happiness and taking the joy out of our lives.
Worrying over interview results, meeting deadlines, someone’s health, financial situation and what not! It seems like the mind needs a reason to worry, to keep us occupied.
How about we try EFT tapping to see if we can empower ourselves enough to resist this deadly temptation with which worry seduces us?
EFT tapping set up
Even though this nagging worry has taken over my mind, I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself for not being able to fight it off.
Even though all avenues look grim and the future uncertain, I wish I could think and see myself clearly out of this fog. I’m open to clarity right here, right now!
Even though I hate this uncertainty looming over me, I want to release this need to control every single moment of my life, and be confident about my ability to handle surprises.
Even though my mind is getting bombarded with all kinds of things that could go wrong, what if things don’t turn out so bad in reality? I wish I could be more positive and hopeful.
