Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as ‘tapping’, is a fantastic self-help tool which can help you not only identify and release money blocks, but also help you to cultivate an abundance mindset.
If you’re a business owner who has experienced any of the following, then you may well relate to having money blocks…
- Being stuck at a certain income level
- Overspending or underspending in your business
- Having constant pricing stresses because you aren’t sure what to charge
- Over giving and creating an abundance of freebies
- Feeling awkward about chasing up unpaid invoices
- Avoiding money matters and financial conversations completely
You are not alone my friend; most entrepreneurs have struggled with their money mindset at some point along their business journey.
Money blocks show up in many different ways, but one common block is around lack and scarcity…this fear that there’s just not enough money in the world. Oftentimes when you’re in that place of ‘not enoughness’ it not only applies to money, but also to time, clients/customers and sadly, even yourself. How many times have you felt like you aren’t enough too?
Tapping Away Money Blocks
Tapping can really help you to work through money blocks and identify where your deep-seated beliefs about money come from, in fact I’ve created a free Money Breakthrough Guide to help you get started working on your money mindset and recommend you work 1:1 with an certified EFT Practitioner (I can help!) if you feel like your money wounds/financial trauma requires deeper support and healing.
When you’re in a stressed state, which is common with a scarcity mindset, you may find that your negative thoughts about money and wealth increase, leading to yet more fear, envy and helplessness. Hence I’m sharing a simple tapping script to help you feel calmer, release fears and shift into abundance an abundance mindset.
Tapping Script to Help You Cultivate an Abundance Mindset
If you’ve used tapping before and are familiar with where the points are located, feel free to use the script below. If you’d prefer to follow along via video, you can tap with me below.
Please note, this script and video are for personal use only. You are welcome to share it online if you found it helpful, but include full credit/links and do not copy or use with clients without express permission.
Before you tap…
- Find yourself a nice calm space to tap in and make yourself comfortable
- Tapping can make you feel dehydrated, so ensure you have a glass of water nearby
- I always find it helpful to have a notepad and pen besides me in case anything comes up that I want to tap on later – you may even find tapping sparks a new business idea or provides some creative inspiration!
- Take three deep calming breaths before you start
- Tap around 7 times on each point s-l-o-w-l-y, remembering to breathe!
- By using this tapping script and/or video, you agree to take full responsibility for your own health and well-being.
Before you start, ask yourself “How abundant do I feel right now?” and rate it on a scale of 1-10 (10 being extremely abundant and 0 being not at all abundant). This will help you measure the success of the tapping process; we’ll check in again at the end.
The set-up phrases
Repeat these phrases whilst tapping on the karate chop point. You can say them out loud or in your mind.
Even though I’ve sometimes got caught up in lack and scarcity, I choose to be at peace with my past
Even though my world has sometimes felt anything but abundant, from today I choose to expand my world and notice abundance
Even though I’ve felt like there isn’t enough…that I’m not enough, I choose to deeply and completely love, honour and accept myself
Tap through the points slowly as you repeat the following: Eyebrow: Today I am allowing abundance Side of eye: And that starts with noticing…with awareness Under eye: Reminding myself that an abundant world Under nose: Feels like an overflowing fullness Chin: And remembering there is always enough Collarbone: Enough money, enough love, enough of everything Under arm: Because the universe is abundant Top of head: And the universe wants abundance for me, and for everyone
Pause and take a couple of deep breaths before continuing to the next round. This is also a good time to express any negative emotions that may be present for you. Keep tapping until you feel like you’ve had a good rant!
Eyebrow: How can I notice abundance in my life today? Side of eye: What abundance have I overlooked? Under eye: Maybe I could notice abundance in lots of ways Under nose: As I step forward with abundance on my mind Chin: Stepping forward into a new truth Collarbone: That I am worthy and deserving of abundance Under arm: And that I am always open to and aware of abundance Top of head: Noticing abundance in the world around me
Eyebrow: Seeing the abundance of things that are too limitless to count Side of eye: The grains of sand on a beach Under eye: The blades of grass in the countryside Under nose: The stars in the sky Chin: The leaves on the trees Collarbone: The water that flows in the sea…in streams and rivers Under arm: The trillions of cells in my own body Top of head: I am an embodiment of abundance
Eyebrow: The more abundant I feel, the more abundance I’ll see Side of eye: Because abundance is an inside job Under eye: It’s not about what I have or want – It’s about how I AM Under nose: And abundance can flow from me, to me and through me Chin: There is a universe inside of me Collarbone: There is always enough Under arm: I am always enough Top of head: I bask in abundance and enoughness
Eyebrow: I feel so thankful for the abundance in the world Side of eye: And I choose to notice that abundance every day of my life Under eye: As I receive, I give…and as I give, I receive Under nose: And I thank the universe for the abundance I see Chin: With a subtle nod of the head, a whispered thank you, a written note or a special gesture Collarbone: I replace fear with love Under arm: And I stand confident in knowing there is always enough Top of head: Feeling the overflowing fullness of abundance with my mind, body and spirit
Take a long deep breath and pause for a moment to appreciate the tapping and feel gratitude for this time you’ve given to yourself.
When you’re ready, ask yourself again “How abundant do I feel right now?” and rate it on a scale of 1-10 (10 being extremely abundant and 0 being not at all abundant).
Has your score increased, stayed the same or perhaps even decreased?
If it’s increased, you could keep going until you get to at least an 8 to really get those abundance vibes going!
If your score has stayed the same, try and connect more with the process of tapping by closing your eyes and really feeling the words your are saying.
If your score has gone down, it may indicate there are deeper money wounds which need addressing. Take note of what negative thoughts or feelings come up and always be mindful of your well-being when you tap. If you feel emotionally triggered, take some deep breaths and tap on your collarbone point until the feelings subside. When you’re ready, carry on with your day and see what abundance you notice in the world around you.
