Module 4: Feelings of envy that feed a scarcity mindset

EFT Tapping Points

How to use the audio tap-alongs

The above picture shows the EFT tapping points we will be using. Click the picture to see a larger version. One round of EFT begins with the eyebrow point and ends at the top of the head. You will hear a gentle bell sound when it is time to move to the next tapping point. For example, after tapping on the eyebrow point, you will hear a bell sound which will be your cue to move to the next point – the side of the eye. It is okay if you miss the bell and happen to tap on two or more statements at the same point.

This tapping sequence is about comparison. Comparison often leads to jealousy. Jealousy weaves directly into a scarcity mindset. Whenever you meet a successful person or their mention comes up, you immediately realize where you are in comparison to them and you feel dejected. You long for their good fortune whether it is their money, their perfect relationship, their appearance, their job or whatever else. This is jealousy.

Research shows that feelings of jealousy are like experiencing physical pain. When jealousy is cleared, you become free to listen to what you really want. Not something you think you should want because others look happy having it. It becomes even more important to address it if we come in regular contact with people we compare ourselves with. The cool thing about this tapping sequence is that it will enable you to clear feelings of comparison and jealousy in almost any area you can think of. So think of someone whose money, relationships, looks, status, abilities or anything for that matter make you feel distinctly uncomfortable, and tap along with me.

Tap on the karate chop while repeating aloud or silently the following set up statements.

Even though it saddens me to see all the goodness coming their way, I am open to turning my feelings of dejection into something positive, even fruitful.

Even though I don’t want to admit that I long for their good fortune, I’m open to listening to my true desires and taking inspired action that will benefit me.

Even though it feels impossible for me to achieve what they already have, I do know that I can make better use of my time by focusing on my success.
