When we first started to learn EFT, we were focused on the tappinig, sending the intent of our words through our system to remove blockages. We were instructed to say, “I deeply and completely love and accept myself”…sometimes we threw in “forgive” as well…and tap, tap, tap.
As I’ve progressed in EFT, the word “accept” has come to stand out as the ‘magic word’. Remember as a child, we were asked by adults, “what’s the magic word?” and we’d say “Please”…and voilå, the door opened to ice cream or some other wonderful thing we wanted.
“Accept” seems to be the adult word that triggers magic. To accept everything just as it is, even if we don’t like it…..just accept it, and changes take place. For in acceptance, we let go and stop gnashing at the past.
The Universe has sent me a number of ‘acceptance’ statements in the last couple of months.
A fortune cookie on Face Book said,
“Accept what you cannot change, and you’ll feel better”
Hmmmmm…when you get down to it, we can’t change the past. We say we can’t change others, and that’s true, but we can change ourselves and then our outer world changes…EFT Master, Rue Hass, gave us that.
Next, the humanist psychology founder, Carl Rogers, said:
“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
That’s the crux of EFT…”Even tho I have this….headache…I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself”…tapping, “this headache’ all around.
