Take Your Power Back With EFT

Do you feel powerless? Hopeless? Like there’s no point putting a lot of effort into your future because it doesn’t turn out the way you want it to? Do you feel as if you have no control over your own life?

The truth is we have been conditioned to give our power away to people and situations in our lives for centuries. We carry this disempowerment in our cellular memory from past lives, past generations and from our current history. Because we don’t know any better, we allow it to dictate our present moment and the outcomes of our future by giving our power away. And often we give up because having given our power away, we feel powerless, disempowered, hopeless. It feels like there’s no use.

Can you relate to any of those feelings?

If you want different results, it’s time to take your power back. Time to take charge of your life and be the captain of your own ship and create your own destiny by design, instead of default. Don’t allow other people, events and outside influences to dictate how successful and happy you are. To do so makes you a victim to circumstance and as long as you are being a victim, you will be at the mercy of life.

Taking your power back does not mean you have to dis-empower or bully others. It means being confident in your own being and not allowing external situations to influence the decisions you make or actions you take in your own life. It is up to you to decide what is for your highest good and define your life accordingly.

There will always be outside events and people that affect our lives, but the ultimate outcome for you is determined by how you respond to those.

So think for a moment where you have given your power away. There will probably be several areas where you have allowed yourself to be disempowered and possible hundreds even thousands of events that have occurred. Choose the memory that feels the most intense when you think about it.

How does it make you feel to know you gave your power away? Sad? Angry? Frustrated? Disappointed? Powerless? Hopeless? Weak?

The following EFT tapping script is going to focus on the feelings of powerlessness and hopelessness, however, you can substitute any of the above feelings, or others that may be more appropriate for you to do the tapping. And if you have several feelings around this, then keep doing the EFT until you have got them all down to a 1 or a 0.

Make the statement: “I have given all my power away and feel completely powerless.” Rate the truth of that statement on a scale of 0 to 10, 0 being it’s not true at all and 10 being the most true it could possibly be.

Now tap along on the points with the following script, substituting different words and phrases that are more appropriate to your circumstances if you need to.

Set Up – Karate Chop Point

Even though I have given all my power away to this situation, I choose to love and accept who I am and how I feel.

Even though I feel so disempowered because I allowed it / them to take my power away, I choose to love and respect myself anyway.

Even though I gave my power away and have been left feeling hopeless and powerless, I deeply and completely love and accept who I am and how I feel.

Tapping Through the Points:

Eyebrow: I feel so powerless

Outside Eye: I gave all my power away to this situation / person

Under Eye: I gave up even trying because it feels so hopeless

Under Nose: It’s not fair that they took away all my power

Chin: And I was stupid to let them

Collar Bone: I didn’t stand a chance

Under Arm: They were too powerful for me

Top of Head: They completely over ran me and made me feel powerless

Eyebrow: No wonder I haven’t been able to be successful

Outside Eye: I should have known better

Under Eye: I should have been stronger

Under Nose: It’s just hopeless

Chin: There’s no way I can succeed

Collar Bone: I let them run all over me

Under Arm: This situation / person completely took all my power away

Top of Head: And there have been many other times too

Eyebrow: I’ve got no power left because I gave it all away

Outside Eye: I feel so hopeless and disempowered

Under Eye: How am I ever going to succeed when people and things stop me

Under Nose: Why do I keep giving my power away?

Chin: They / this took all my power away from me

Collar Bone: It’s not my fault

Under Arm: I feel completely powerless and hopeless

Tope of Head: And there’s no point trying because I don’t have the power to succeed

Now, take a deep breath and again say out loud “I have given all my power away and feel completely powerless.” and rate the truth of that statement on a scale of 0 to 10.

You may need to focus more on the negative to bring the feeling down to a at least a 1 or a 2 before proceeding. Again, say it the way it is. How you are feeling and what is appropriate for you. The more you get in touch with your own feelings, the more effective this is going to be.

Now we are going to do a positive round of tapping.

Set Up Statement – Karate Chop Point

Even though I still feel this sense of powerlessness and it makes me feel really sad, I deeply and completely love and accept all of me.

Even though I gave my power away and have been held back all these years because if it, I profoundly love and accept myself anyway.

Even though I allowed them / it to take my power away, I choose to love and accept myself and know that I have been doing my best all along.

Tapping Through The Points

Eyebrow: How could I give all my power away like that?

Outside Eye: That was just stupid

Under Eye: And now I choose to forgive myself

Under Nose: And take my power back

Chin: I choose to know I can take all my power back right now

Collar Bone: I choose to take control over my life

Under Arm: I didn’t know any better before

Top of Head: And that’s ok

Eyebrow: Because now I choose to take my power back

Outside Eye: I choose to be captain of my own ship

Under Eye: If it’s meant to be, it’s up to me

Under Nose: I’ve had some set backs

Chin: But everybody has those

Collar Bone: I choose to know I can over come anything

Under Arm: I choose to know in every fibre and cell of my being that I can achieve anything.

Top of Head: I choose to know in my physical being and my etheric being that I am infinitely powerful

Eyebrow: And I can achieve anything I set my mind to

Outside Eye: I choose to take all my power back right now

Under Eye: I love feeling powerful and knowing I am in control of my destiny

Under Nose: They / It doesn’t have any power over me any more

Chin: Because I choose to take all my power back

Collar Bone: And take positive action toward my goals

Under Arm: Even if it doesn’t turn out perfectly straight away

Top of Head: I know I have the power to eventually achieve anything I want and I love feeling my infinite power and knowing I am capable of achieving anything I set my mind to.

Take a deep breath and again rate that statement: “I have given all my power away and feel completely powerless.”

Keep assessing your feeling of powerlessness / hopelessness in the days to come. If a situation comes up where you feel powerless then tap again. You will probably find more feelings and aspects associated with your feelings of powerlessness that you haven’t explored yet.

Remember, you are a work in progress, and everything is perfect right now, and it will take time for you to heal deep wounds that have occurred during this life time and others so you can reach the point that you are living to your full potential and living the life of your dreams.

Be kind to yourself, forgive yourself, be patient and expect miracles and magic in your life.

Take care and happy tapping,

Power Does Not Corrupt, Powerlessness Does

We have this commonly held belief in our society that power corrupts. In fact the opposite is true. What corrupts the hearts and minds of men is our egoic belief that we are vulnerable and must protect ourselves and our false belief systems for fear we may be overpowered.

The truth is that when you experience your true power, when you embrace the truth that who you truly are is capable of absolutely anything, good and bad, that humility settles into every fiber of your being.

Those who use their perceived power to control and manipulate and destroy what they see as a threat are in fact the weakest of all our society. They protect their worldly identity and position through intimidation and fear.
