This is the second highest ranked post for having been shared through Internet circles.  Five years since its original posting, it certainly deserves another read through:


These are affirmations written by Louise Hay.  Anyone working with
forgiveness/self-forgiveness and EFT, I think these would be wonderful
to turn into an EFT script.  They stand alone well as affirmations, if you
believe them.  If you don’t believe them, you can tap on that too, by saying
how you don’t believe you are ready to be healed or whatever affirmation that
doesn’t resonate with you yet.  “I don’t believe, I don’t think I’ll ever believe,
it’s taking me so long to believe, I do this stuff over and over and it still
doesn’t sink in”.  Those are just examples, take your disbelief, blow it up
as big as you can while tapping and watch what happens, it has a tendency
to just dissipate and be neutralized.

The door to my heart opens inward. I move through forgiveness to love.

Today I listen to my feelings, and I am gentle with myself. I know that
all of my feelings are my friends.

The past is over, so it has no power now. The thoughts of THIS moment create
my future.

It is no fun being a victim. I refuse to be helpless anymore. I claim my own power.

I give myself the gift of freedom from the past, and move with joy into the now.

I get the help I need, when I need it, from various sources. My support system
is strong and loving.

There is no problem so big or so small that it cannot be solved with love.

I am ready to be healed. I am willing to forgive. All is Well.

When I make a mistake, I realize that it is only part of the learning process.

I move beyond forgiveness to understanding, and I have compassion for all.

Each day Is a new Opportunity. Yesterday is over and done.
Today is the first day of my future.

I know that old, negative patterns no longer limit me. I let them go with ease.

I am forgiving, loving, gentle, and kind, and I know that Life Loves Me.

As I forgive myself, it becomes easier to forgive others.

I love and accept my family members exactly as they are right now.

As I change my thoughts, the world around me changes.

I forgive myself for not being perfect. I am living the very best way I know how.

I cannot change another person. I let others be who they are, and I simply love who I am.

It is now safe for me to release all of my childhood traumas and move into love.

I know that I cannot take responsibility for other people. We are all under the law of our own consciousness.

I return to the basics of life: forgiveness, courage, gratitude, love, and humor.

Everyone in my life has something to teach me. We have a purpose in being together.

I forgive everyone in my past for all perceived wrongs. I release them with love.

All of the changes in life that lie before me are positive ones. I am safe.

I have developed another new eft set up phrase that I rather enjoy

Even though I experience __________, I give myself the freedom
and the compassionate space to allow love and light in this.

My new set up feels so delicious I sprinkle it in throughout the tapping

I just love it!  It feels so dynamic, so much choosing on my behalf,
and allowing love and light to flow into this experience, whatever it
is, so that I may open myself to expanding into new choices, new
ways of being.

Love, Bethie

Can you imagine how wonderful it would be if you
could live your life without ever being criticized by
anyone? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to feel totally at
ease, totally comfortable? You would get up in the
morning, and you would know you were going to
have a wonderful day, because everybody would
love you and nobody would criticize you or put you
down. You would feel just great.

You know what?

You can give this to yourself. You can make the
experience of living with you the most wonderful
experience imaginable. You can wake up in the
morning so thrilled to find yourself and feel the joy
of spending another day with you.

The above was written by Louise Hay in Heart
Thoughts: A Treasury of Inner Wisdom. There are
many beautiful expressions in that book. My friend
Reggie recently commented how one of Louise Hay’s
writings could be turned into an eft script.

This delicious idea of using eft to neutralize old beliefs and
install new beliefs. If I took the above writing and turned
it into an eft script, it might read like this:

I imagine how wonderful my life can be free of self criticism.

I am willing to release self-criticism one thought at a time.

I am willing to treat myself with compassion, respect and kindness.

I am open to knowing what it can feel like to be at ease
and totally comfortable with myself.

I can imagine the possibility that today is going to be a wonderful
day and my encounters with others will feel infused with mutual love
and respect for each other.

I am willing to make the experience of living with myself the most
wonderful experience imaginable.

I am willing to wake up in the morning so thrilled to feel the joy of spending
another day with my favorite person: me.

And finally:

eyebrow point: I am willing…
side of the eye: I am willing….
under the eye: I am willing….
under the nose: I am willing….
under the chin: I am willing….
collar bone: I am willing….
side of the body: I am willing….
top of the head: I am so willing!

Love, Bethie

Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could. Some
blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in;
forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow
is a new day; begin it well and serenely and
with too high a spirit to be encumbered with
your old nonsense.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Love that Ralph Waldo Emerson.  Blunders and
absurdities, yes, I had some of that yesterday.
And now he asks that I forget about them AND
he calls it ‘old nonsense’!  Is he kidding or what?
There’s a whole novels worth of story making I can
make around those blunders and absurdities :)

Or not.

I used EFT yesterday to get beyond feeling sad
and bad about those blunders and absurdities.
It’s a lifesaver, this EFT.  I wonder: what did
Emerson do without it?  Well, no matter I don’t
have to do without it.  It is the best therapeutic
tool I have come across.

And now, yes I can begin my day anew.

Love, Bethie
