This full-length EFT tapping script is part II of my series for highly sensitive people.
To know what characteristics personify a highly sensitive person and if you might be a highly sensitive person, read part I of my post here: EFT tapping is a blessing for a highly sensitive person (HSP).
As a highly sensitive person, you get overwhelmed easily because you are taking in too much information through your fine-tuned perception system. You may feel bad about being different from the not-so-sensitive people around you. This EFT tapping script aims to smooth ruffled feathers whenever you find yourself stuck in this self contempt.
If you are new to EFT tapping, see this beginner’s guide to EFT tapping to learn it within minutes.
You can tap through this script whenever you feel the need. No one will need to tell you when you need it.
The tapping starts out by acknowledging aspects of high sensitivity that often feel like liabilities. Once we have done that and reduced the emotional intensity somewhat, a positive outlook about our highly sensitive nature rises spontaneously as we will see below.
EFT tapping set up phrases
Even though I’m born with a highly sensitive disposition, and it often feels like a burden, what if I could unearth some positive aspects of it and be surprised by what a gift my high sensitivity is?
Even though I get easily overwhelmed by all that goes on around me, and it makes me look weak, I am open to learning new ways of understanding my overwhelm and gently pulling myself out of it. Even if that means I need to pull away from the outside world into my inner sanctuary.
Even though I sometimes feel like a misfit among people who are not as sensitive as I am, I choose to remember that my empathy and intuition enable me to understand people at a deeper level. That is a highly-valued trait in a society where forming deep connections is becoming rare.
