A co-worker stole credit for your work, again? Your partner let you down, again? A pimple raised its ugly head on your face, again? A dip in the charts, again? A failed relationship, again? Why doesn’t this trend stop already?
If certain undesirable events keep happening over and over, it can build up hopelessness, resentment and anger. And then every time that thing happens again, it seems more difficult than before to deal with all the accumulated emotional charge.
It doesn’t matter what the magnitude of the thing is in real life, what matters is how much power it has over you. How much potential it has to upset you, to disturb you, to make you suffer.
How about we try EFT tapping to see if we can lose the emotional charge and break the cycle of repetitive torture?
EFT tapping set up
Even though I often decide not to lose my peace of mind over this thing, but I fall apart whenever this thing happens, I still love, accept and forgive myself unconditionally.
Even though I feel powerless when this thing happens, I don’t want to empower this thing with my emotional charge any further.
Even though I feel like a sore victim whenever this thing happens, I want to reclaim all power that this thing has over me.
Even though a part of me thinks this suffering is necessary for me and keeps attracting this thing to me, I want all parts of my being to dissociate from this thing for my sake.
Even though I feel the need to blame myself and others for this thing happening to me, I want to stop the blame game since blaming only perpetuates it and gives it a reason to recur.
Even though just the thought of this thing happening again fills me with unease, I choose to tune myself out of all the vibes that manifest this thing into my world.

Tapping through the script should reduce or eliminate the emotional charge around the recurring problem. If you find yourself getting upset if the undesirable event happens again, tap through this script at that time as well. Best results from EFT are often obtained when you’re in the heat of the moment and all charged up.
