36 Setup Statements to Say While EFT Tapping

One of the most common challenges new EFT users have with EFT tapping is “What am I supposed to say while I am tapping?” 

I have had many a student and client share with me, “My mind goes blank when I start to tap.”

Once you have zeroed in on a specific event that represents a core issue, it is common to get hung up on the words that represent that core issue.

You may become tongue-tied and feel that you are somehow interfering with the EFT tapping process. Thus you think it is less effective for you.

There are no exact words, phrases, or statements that fit every individual situation out there.

That is why EFT tappers are urged to develop creativity your setup statements.

It is a trial-and-error process that, once mastered, produces rich rewards. In the meantime, however, there are common themes you can explore in most traumas, core issues, limiting beliefs, and dysfunctions.

I have found in working with literally hundreds of clients that there are some common statements that can be used with a variety of different people to help you clear emotional triggers more effectively using EFT.

For an example, if you wanted to clear a core issue and pattern of “People Pleasing,” here are 36 suggested tapping statements.

While tapping the EFT points say the following statements:

Even though I am [Scared], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I am [In the way], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I am [A bother], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I [Need to do it right] I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I [Have to appear blameless to survive], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I [Have to appear perfect to survive], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I am [Letting it go], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I feel that [I am not okay as I am], I deeply and completely accept myself

Even though I think [I am not as good as another], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I think [I don’t fit in], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I believe that [I don’t belong], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I am afraid that [if they really knew me they would not like me], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I tell myself [“Don’t speak it will ruin the program!”], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I tell myself [“Don’t be forgetful or people won’t like me!”], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though [There is no room for people who don’t have it all together], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I feel [name feeling], I am releasing this feeling, as I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I feel [name feeling], I am choosing to let it go, as I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I am [Scared if I am myself], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I fear [I won’t be accepted], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I fear that [I will be put down], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I feel that [I need love so badly that I do what others want me to for love], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I feel [Angry], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I feel that am [Never good enough], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I [Alter my truth to fit in], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I [Deny my truth to get my needs met], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I feel [Let down], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I feel [Disappointed], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I [Expect others to tell me I am okay], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I [Don’t trust myself], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I often think that [If someone else is unhappy it must be my fault], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though [Letting go of my distorted thinking scares me], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though [I expect others to validate me], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I think that [To get my needs met I must change others], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I think that I always [Jump through hoops for love], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I am [Afraid of being wrong], I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I am [Letting these distortions go], I deeply and completely accept myself.

After tapping out the suggested limiting beliefs and core issues you can tap on the following reframes:

I am okay as I am

I validate myself

I stand for truth at all times

I am worthy of love

I am okay with myself

I am worthy of love

I am open to new freedom and joy

I am true to myself

I take care of myself

I end relationships that cannot be healthy

I change only myself

I am living my life fully

I am wanted

I speak my truth

I am myself and I enjoy it

I have found this statement book to be extremely helpful in my practice and have encouraged my clients to refer to it to assist them while using EFT to clear their blocks and distortions in between sessions.

The suggested statements also help in opening people up so that other hidden issues and beliefs start to come up and clear with more spontaneity and ease.
