When You Can’t Say, “I Love and Accept Myself”

Do the classic EFT Setup Phrases work well for you? If your answer is “sometimes” or “no” you’ll be happy to know there is a solution.

As many of you may know, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) was originally taught by Gary Craig. Prior to that, TFT (Thought Field Therapy) was taught by Roger Callahan (from which Gary adapted his own EFT method). During both these trainings, these experts instructed us to tap on an issue in this manner:

Before we started tapping on the issue we would first tap on the Karate Chop Spot or rub the Sore Spot on the chest and simultaneously say aloud, “Even though I have this (here we would insert our own issue), I deeply and completely accept myself, or I love and accept myself.”
