Forgive and move on with EFT Tapping

"Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness." Marianne Williamson

Nearly everyone has been hurt by the actions or words of another.

These wounds can leave you with lingering feelings of anger, bitterness, even vengeance. By embracing forgiveness, you can embrace peace, hope, gratitude and joy.

Generally, forgiveness is a decision to let go of resentment and thoughts of revenge.

Forgiveness doesn't mean that you deny the other person's responsibility for hurting you, and it doesn't minimize or justify the wrong. You can forgive the person without excusing the act.

We also may think that we have to be friendly with them again, or go back to the old relationship. Needn't be so.

Forgiving someone can be hard, but it gets easier if you look at it as a way of freeing yourself from the hurt and moving on.

So if forgiveness is something you could bring more of into your life, you'll benefit greatly from EFT Tapping we'll do today. 🙂

Tapping Script for Forgiveness and Moving On

Bring to mind a person who did you wrong and keeping those feelings in mind, tap along...


Round 1: 

Karate Chop: Even though I've been holding on to resentment against this person, even thoughts of revenge, because what they did was wrong and nothing can change that, I'm open to reclaiming my peace and joy by looking into the possibility of forgiveness. I don't have to condone their actions, only free myself to release the hurt and move on (3 times).

Eyebrow: I can't accept what they did, forgiveness is out of the question.

Side of the eye: Forgive them?

Under the eye: What they did was wrong.

Under the nose: They should not be able to get away with it.

Chin: They should be punished.

Collarbone: They should get a taste of their own medicine.

Under the arm: Then they'll know not to do it again!

Thumb: Only when they are punished I will feel good.

Index Finger: Unforgiveness is hurting me more.

Middle Finger: Don’t they realize what they are doing? 

Little Finger: They do not deserve my forgiveness.

Breathe in and out and take a sip of water


Round 2

Karate Chop: Even though I am still carrying vengeance and I would love to be able to forgive but I am finding it hard to forgive and I feel like I am being dragged into negativity. I deeply and completely love and accept myself (3 times).

Eyebrow: I'm still carrying vengeance.

Side of the eye: That continues to drag me into negativity.

Under the eye: Crowding out my thoughts of peace.

Under the nose: I feel so sad with my situation.

Index Finger: I can hear their voices in my head of when they hurt me.

Middle Finger: I can see the image of them doing that to me.

Little Finger: I am holding on to Unforgiveness.

Breathe in and out and take a sip of water


Round 3

Karate Chop: Even though I would love to forgive them and I am not sure if I can step out of this negativity and it makes me feel really sad. I love and accept myself completely.

Eyebrow: How can I forgive? When I have so much hatred.

Side of the eye: I feel so sad with my situation.

Under the eye: I wonder if I can step out of this negativity and find a place of forgiveness within.

Under the nose: Suppose somehow I could feel more compassion and understanding for them and me.

Chin: What if I could forgive this person?

Collarbone: Not the behavior of the person because what they did was no right.

Under the arm: What if I could forgive them?

Thumb: Suppose somehow I could forgive myself for not forgiving them.

Middle Finger:  I am open to forgiving, letting go and moving on.

Top of the head: I am grateful that I am able to forgive them and myself.

There are so many reasons to forgive:

  • Peace of mind
  • To be able to move on
  • It is better for health (there is evidence to show unforgiveness is linked to illness and cancer)

Here's to forgiveness, personal peace and love.
