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

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.

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,

Do You Suffer From The Silent Success Killer?

There are many traits that go to creating success, and hundreds, if not thousands of experts who will gladly tell you what they are.

There are also dozens of theories, many of them similar and each with their merits, about what the subconscious blocks are to success. They are many and varied and most people have a number of them that need to be cleared before they can move forward to achieve the success they deserve.

However, there is one that often goes unexplored that I want to look at closely today. It destroys relationships, careers, health, hope and is even one of the underlying causes of most, if not all suicide. This insidious fiend is powerlessness.

Powerlessness takes away hope and destroys lives. It stops people from even trying to change their situation. Ask yourself if you have any areas in your life that you feel powerless. Finances? Career? Relationship? Health? Do you feel at the mercy of other people or your situation? A sense of hopelessness that makes you feel like you have no control over that area of your life what-so-ever?

Of course, control is just an illusion. We live in a global community and people, situations and events will happen that will definitely impact on our lives, this is inevitable. But what we can control is how we respond and use each circumstance as an opportunity to be the best we can be and turn any situation into a blessing.

We are never powerless, no matter what the circumstance. We always have a choice, even when things seem hopeless we can choose who we are going to be and what we are going to do to alter the nature of the final outcome.

Even for those facing terminal illness, today there are hundreds of alternative treatments and therapies available that create miracle cures for people everyday, and if not, then finding a way to approach your final months / weeks / days with acceptance and peace could turn the transition into an event filled with grace. As improbable as that sounds, there are numerous cultures that celebrate the transition from this life to eternal life. After all, as Byron Katie says, ‘We are all on the way out’! Nothing else is more certain than our inevitable passing from this life as we know it.

What we fail to see is just how powerful we truly are. The super successful have not risen to dizzy heights because they didn’t have any challenges or set backs. They have gotten to where they are because they saw each challenge as an opportunity to learn, grow, enrich their experience and be even more successful because of it.

You are infinitely powerful, and if you feel powerless it is because you have been led to believe that you are at the mercy of your environment, your circumstances or other people. It’s time to take back your power and show the world that you will not allow outside circumstances to hold you back. Decide there is nothing that will stop you from achieving your goals and dreams. See each hurdle as an invitation to grow. Harness your energy, your resourcefulness, your creativity, your irrepressible nature. Decide to BE UNSTOPPABLE!!!!

Own your magnificence and your power and nothing will be able to keep you from happiness and success.

Here are some EFT tapping phrases to help you release yourself from the grip of powerlessness and move forward positively and powerfully!

Choose one area of your life that isn’t going the way you would like it to.

Make the statement: “I feel powerless to change this situation” and rate how true that is for you on a scale of 0 to 10, 0 being not true at all and 10 being the most true it could possible be.

Now tap along with the following tapping script. If you have phrases that you feel would be more appropriate for you, then replace the ones I have here with those. These are just a guide to get you on the right track.

Karate Chop:

Even though I have this overwhelming sense of hopelessness about this area of my life, I choose to honour how I feel and know that there is a solution to my problem.

Take a deep breath and again make the statement. “I feel powerless to change this situation” and rate it on a scale of 0 to 10.

Keep tapping using these phrases and other ones that you feel are appropriate for you until you bring the rating down to a 1 or a zero. You will probably need to tap on this every few days until you feel a permanent and powerful shift toward your creative and powerful self.

Happy Tapping!
