Overcoming Your Deepest Fears

Happy Tapping News
August 2008

Marianne Williamson in her book, A Return to Love: Reflections on A Course in Miracles, said:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a Child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Every time I read this, I am moved at a very deep level. In my exploring of new and empowering ways to use EFT, the idea came to me to convert the above principles into EFT setup phrases and tapping sequences. Using the power of these words combined with tapping not only removes false beliefs and misperceptions, it likewise anchors in deeper truths for living on purpose as spiritual beings having a human experience.

I believe the reason this quote is so popular is because it resonates with a prevailing mindset in our culture. We have come to fear our own power because we are highly sensitive to the misuse of power that we have either experienced personally or witness going on around us. This can be within our families, our communities or our role in the national and international arenas.

Below are phrases based on Marianne’s text converted into the traditional EFT setup statement format. I recommend you use the common shortcut method for shifting some core beliefs represented by these words. Be sure to note any shifts in your energy field as you go along. They may be subtle or profound, but I have no doubt you will feel some shifts and changes.

If you find some memories surfacing, assume they reflect an aspect of the same vibration in your unconscious mind and keep tapping. Use this opportunity to clear both your personal issues and help shift the consciousness of all of us in the process.

Say each statement three (3) times while either rubbing the Sore Spot or tapping on the Karate Chop point. Then proceed through the eight points from the eyebrow to underarm ending at the top of the head with each half of each statement. This way you are clearing the problem and replacing it with an empowering thought. (Go to http://www.happytapping.net  for more detailed information on how to do EFT.)

Tapping Out Our Deepest Fears

Eventhough my deepest fear is not that I am inadequate but that I am powerful beyond measure, I accept myself just as I am.”
Example: First time through the sequence, tap on “my fear of being powerful”, second time through, “I accept my inner power”, third time, alternate these two phrases, ending with “I accept my inner power.”

Even though it is my light, not my darkness, that most frightens me, I totally and completely accept both the light and dark that is in me.”
Example: “afraid of my inner light” and “I accept my light and dark.”

Even though I ask myself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous, I accept myself just as I am.”
Example: “doubt/hide my best qualities” and “I accept myself just as I am.”

Even though I may not always know I am a Child of God, I totally and completely love, forgive and accept myself.”
Example: “forget I am a child of God” and “I love, forgive and accept myself.”

Even though my playing small doesn’t serve the world, I accept myself without judgment.”
Example: “my playing small” and “I accept myself without judgment.”

Even though there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around me, I am will to do my best to make manifest the glory of God that is within me.”
Example: “fear of other people’s reactions” and “I choose to be myself.”

Even though I sometimes forget it’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone, I choose to let my own light shine.”
Example: “forgetting to see the light” and “I choose to shine my light.”

Even though I unconsciously forget to give other people permission to do the same, I choose to remember we are all the same.”
Example: “forget to be compassionate with others” and “I choose to remember.”

Even though I may not know how, as I am liberated from my fears my presence automatically liberates others.”
Example: “afraid I don’t know how” and “I choose to liberate myself in service to others.”“I choose to be liberated from my fears.”
“I choose to use the power of my inner light for the good of everyone.”

In years of studying and working to understand human consciousness, I have come to fully believe that as any one of us does this type of inner healing work, all of us benefit. So thank you for your commitment to your own inner journey of health and wellbeing and the healing of our beloved planet.

Happy Tapping!
