Using EFT to soften Pet Loss

Using EFT to soften grief

 EFT is a technique that has been around for thousands of years. Like acupuncture and acupressure, Tapping is a set of techniques which utilize the body’s energy meridian points. You can stimulate these meridian points by tapping on them with your fingertips – literally tapping into your body’s own energy and healing power. Often times when we experience trauma, especially in grieving a loss, our “chi” or emotional energy becomes stuck. EFT  has been used to alleviate painful emotions. It consists of tapping on meridian points while stating the problems.  By stating and resolving the negative emotions at hand, it will help release the emotion stuck and restore the body to a natural balance.

 The tapping will help release the emotional pain. It will help bring more peace. You can read more about tapping at: http://www.thetappingsolution.com/

Below are some pet loss scripts, I created for a Pet Loss Group I am running adapted sequences from Eva Marklund and the EFT Tapping website.

Even though losing my beloved pet is one of the most painful experiences I have ever gone through

I know that our love is still intact

Our love connection is as strong as ever

Even though I may have been feeling angry with god and punished by this

I choose to know someday I will be able to.

 Even though I miss my pet so much it hurts

I choose to remember that my pet is free now

She is joyful, pain free and at ease

Even though it is hard for me to see past today

I know where my pet is, she can see a bigger picture

She can see our love connects us forever

Where she is, she doesn’t miss me or worry about me

Because she can sense our connection

Because she knows deep inside,

I am ok I am love
