[video] Get Over a Relationship Breakup with EFT Tapping

EFT Emotional Freedom Technique tapping for relationship breakup

How to use EFT tapping when a relationship breaks up

When a relationship breaks down, there is an immediate rush of all kinds of emotions.

You vow never to look at the person again. You blame them for the breakup. You thank yourself for being rid of it. You tell yourself how bad things had gotten. And how this was long in coming.

And then you kind of decide to move on. You think of it as a shut case.

The case is shut, but is it over? After everything is said and done, pangs of regret may remain. After you think you have moved on, longing about how things could have eventually worked out, may linger. As the dust settles, a residual sadness may surface, to always remind you of the failed relationship.

Clearing these negative emotions can pave the way for more successful and desirable relationships in the future.

This EFT tapping script focuses on releasing all the sadness, longing and regret that lingers when a relationship falls apart.

This broken relationship could be with your girlfriend / boyfriend, friend, spouse, co-worker, sibling, parent, or even your hairdresser. It hurts when any precious relationship succumbs to circumstances.


EFT tapping set up phrases

Karate chop

Even though it feels like I will never really get over this relationship, despite all the reasons that brought it to an end, I want  to start feeling better, slowly, but surely.

Even though I feel sad and powerless because of all the missed possibilities this relationship could have grown into, I’m open to looking at it from a peaceful and empowered vantage point.

Even though I still miss being in the relationship, and I’m holding on to a remote hope that actually just ties me down, I’m open to releasing this need to hold on to wreckage. It looks hard, but I am willing to adopt it in my thinking in the gentlest way possible.

EFT tapping round 1

Eyebrow    I miss how things were.

Side of the eye    It didn’t have to end this way.

Under the eye    Just like that.

Under the nose    I wish it had worked out.

Top of the head    This emptiness is chipping away at me.

EFT tapping round 3

Eyebrow    I wish the relationship had grown despite all the missing links,

Side of the eye    instead of coming to a dead end.

Under the eye    Why couldn’t we see past the setbacks?

Under the nose    Things looked promising.

Chin    Maybe underneath all my happiness,

Collar bone    part of me felt that it was too good to be true.

Under the arm    At some level, I was filled with fear

Top of the head    that it would slip out of my hands.

EFT tapping round 4

Eyebrow    Maybe we were simply not suited for each other.

Side of the eye    Maybe I was suspicious of where it was headed,

Under the eye    instead of enjoying it for what it was, in the moment.

Under the nose    Maybe I got lost in my frenzy to make things work.

Chin    In the process, I missed grave signs of impending doom.

Collar bone    Maybe I kept wanting to make it work,

Under the arm    even when the cracks in the wall were there for everyone to see.

Top of the head    Whatever it was, I’m sad it didn’t work out.

EFT tapping round 5

Eyebrow    I tried hard, I appreciated the good things.

Side of the eye    And yet it had to end.

Under the eye    My heart longs for that easy confidence I had

Under the nose    that things would never fall apart.

Chin    Even though I understand all the umpteen reasons

Collar bone    why things didn’t work out, I still wish they had worked out.

Under the arm    We just couldn’t change each other.

Top of the head    Or accept us just as we were.

EFT tapping round 6

Side of the eye    Maybe I expected too much out of them.

Under the eye    That they were not capable of, or ready for.

Chin    I feel disappointed for making a wrong choice.

Collar bone    It felt so good to think that my search was over.

Under the arm    But the truth is, nothing lasts forever.

Top of the head    Even with a lot of repairs.

EFT tapping round 7

Eyebrow    And now this broken relationship has become

Side of the eye    a club I’m holding over my head.

Under the eye    How long will I keep feeling bad?

Under the nose    I want to make peace with it, and move on.

Chin    It is not so much about coming to terms with it

Collar bone    as it is about freeing myself.

Under the arm    Free of this longing for what COULD have been.

Top of the head    How about I focus on what CAN be?

EFT tapping round 8

Eyebrow    I’m understanding that it is okay,

Chin    I choose to forgive myself for what happened.

Collar bone    I choose to forgive others who were involved.

Under the arm    I choose to let them be what they want to be,

Top of the head    while freeing myself to be what I will be.

EFT tapping round 10

Eyebrow    I’m keeping the good memories, and letting all this sadness go.

Side of the eye    Releasing this need to arm twist my relationships in the direction I want them to go.

Under the eye    I choose to let my relationships flow, easily and comfortably.

Under the nose    I’m feeling good about myself.

Chin    I’m feeling worthy of valuable relationships.

Collar bone    I’m ready with open arms.

Under the arm    For new and exciting relationships to come my way.

Top of the head    I’m calm and confident and free.

See how you feel after a round of this tapping. You could repeat tapping through it once again if you find any negative charge still remaining.

Tapping through this script may bring up related aspects of the breakup, such as specific incidents leading up to it. With bigger emotions neutralized with this tapping script, you may find it easier to tap on the remaining ones.

    Thank you so much for posting this tool. I was doing good and then after 1 month my ex contacted me with beautiful words and I felt like I went right back to square one. I have been feeling really possessed by my negative emotions in the past few days, what it could have been and this allowed me to release my feelings. I am feeling so much better and relaxed, at peace. thank you so much!

      Neloch, I’m very pleased to know this tapping brought you relief. Yes, I see what you mean – we get stuck in “what could have been” and hold on to hope which sometimes may not be the best thing for us. Most of the tapping scripts come from reader requests, so let me know whenever you’d like to see something not already covered here.

    Great! I couldn’t release the pain, this worked. Thank you.

    I’d like to get some EFT scripts on releasing regret and guilt in a case when I first felt we had met the love of my life, but later broke up with them. (This is because I felt controlled, my emotions not taken care of, that I had to take care of him instead, etc.) Also an EFT script on trusting myself, because I cannot articulate my gut feeling and my brain cannot accept/process them but keeps thinking about it. My brain needs a rationale for breaking up. Thank you so much!

    this relationship tap helps me so much. It helped straight away when i broke off a relationship. to a person i considered to be a son. i thought i could not breathe without him. now im fine. im now using for another person who i also considered to be a son. All he does however is use me for money. and is vile and obnoxious when he doesnt get it. im releasing this person from my life. he is just not worth my time and effort. i am looking after myself.
