When you find yourself in a tense or stressful situation, here's a quick way to reduce the tension.
Start at the Sore Spot or KC, and repeat a positive affirmation while tapping on each point. Breathe deeply as you tap, and your stress will be reduced in no time.
One of my favorite affirmations is: "Out of this experience, only good will come."
The great thing about this affirmation is that it's easy to accept and it doesn't deny reality. It doesn't deny that the situation you are facing may be uncertain or even grim at the moment. So it is less likely to trigger resistance. You are affirming that you are open to the possibility of a positive outcome. If resistance does arise, use EFT to erase those competing thoughts.
Choose an affirmation of your choice. I like "the world in conspiring in my favor" and "I have everything I need."
Once the tension is reduced, you can think more clearly and focus on the situation at hand.
Affirmations are underused and misunderstood. Read what Gary Craig has to say about the missing piece of the affirmation process and how he lost 30 lb. using this technique. Then put this powerful tool to work for you.
