EFT Tapping on Our Deepest Fear
I wanted to share a story that I think would be helpful to many. I have been tapping using Marianne Williamson's poem, "Our Deepest Fear" from her 1992 best-selling book, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of a Course in Miracles.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. (Eye Brow)
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. (Side Eye)
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. (Under Eye)
We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?” (Under nose)
Actually, who are you not to be? (Chin)
You are a child of God. (collar bone)
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. (under arm)
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. (head)
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us. (Eye Brow)
It is not just in some of us, (Side of Eye)
It is in every one, (Under Eye)
And as we let our own light shine, (Under Nose)
We unconsciously give other people permission (chin)
To do the same. (collarbone)
As we are liberated from our own fear, (Under arm)
Our presence automatically liberates others. (Head)
After I do a round of "Our deepest fear..."
I then tap from the perspective of:
My deepest fear...
Her deepest fear...
After tapping on this for a few days, I was in a situation where a friend of mine wanted me to continue "shrinking so others wouldn't feel insecure around me." I realized that a huge shift was happening and was amazed that on my drive home, my spine began cracking and elongating. It was wild. My back was stretching out. At the time, I was in a small office where I literally had to shrink to avoid hitting my head. A couple of days after my back starting to stretch out, I found myself in a rental disagreement with my landlord and was now out of an office space. "Playing small doesn't serve the world."
I have since tapped on
"Even though it is my light not my darkness that most frightens me I accept who I am" and,
"Even though my deepest fear is that I am powerful beyond measure I accept who I am."
I'm truly amazed everyday at how much easier life is now that I can tap on my daily struggles. My Life isn't free of challenges, I'm just not making them as serious as I once did.
