First, wash your hands. I’ll wait.

Ok, ready? Here we go. You’re now on the path to emotional freedom. Step One: Identify what is bothering

you and ask yourself how do I feel about it? (Example: I’m feeling so anxious about the future.) Rate your feelings 0 – 10.

Step Two: Tap on the side of your hand and repeat out loud:

Even though I feel so anxious about the future, I accept who I am and how I feel. Even though I’m feeling anxious right now about the future, I deeply and com- pletely love and accept myself.

Even though I feel this stress and

anxiety in my body, I accept who I am and how I feel.

Step Three: Tap gently 5 – 6 times

with two fingers on each of the Tapping points while repeating the examples be- low out loud.

Eyebrow Point: I feel so anxious. Side of Eye: All this anxiety. Under Eye: I’m anxious about the future. 7
