You know how it can all just be too much sometimes? You don’t know where to start. Or you think you’ll never get it all done. Perfect time to tap!
Keep It Simple
You can feel SO much better really quickly by keeping it simple. Yes – it’s a great thing to get to the bottom of the problem. But first, just help yourself to feel better. It’s not an either-or deal of either working on juicy issues at the core of the overwhelm OR just suffering. There’s another option for you.
Use EFT to underwhelm yourself. Get back in balance and closer to center. Then you can decide what path to take. It might go something like this:
Setup (rubbing your sore spot on your chest in a circular motion):
Even though I’m feeling completely overwhelmed by everything that’s going on, I’m doing my best to love and accept myself.
Even though I’m going nuts here with everything I have to do, I respect my feelings and know I’m doing the best I can.
Even though I don’t even know where to begin, I know I want to feel different, and I love and accept myself anyway.
Then tap, moving around the tapping points, one round of:
And another round giving voice to your thoughts, for example:
It’s all too much. I don’t know where to start. I can’t do it all. It’s driving me crazy. There are too many demands. Nobody could do all this. I need to start my day earlier. I need to clone myself [humor never hurts!]. I just want to crawl back under the blankets. There’s no relief in sight…. Add your own thoughts.
Now tap a round or two on how you’re feeling – physically and emotionally – and just get it all out on the table. That includes the anxiety, the anger, the blame, the guilt, muscle tension, tight jaws – whatever!
And now refocus on what you really want. Rubbing on your sore spot, do your setup:
Even though I still feel a little overwhelmed, I’m allowing myself to release that. I’m choosing peace of mind. And I respect both parts of me – the holding on part and the letting go part.
Even though a small part of me is still feeling like it’s too much, a big part of me has chosen balance and calm. I’m choosing more of that. I’m choosing total peace and balance for myself.
Even though I’m not quite there yet, I’m committed to coming to a place of peace, no matter what’s going on around me. I have a choice, and that’s what I’m choosing.
And tap some rounds affirming that:
I feel centered and back in balance. I’m thankful for my sense of peace. I’m choosing clarity for myself. I’m grateful for my options. I’m committed to remaining calm. I respect my ability to see new opportunities. I’m resourceful and confident. I’m centered and calm… Add your own phrases.
Now You Have Choices
From your new place of calm, you can choose what to do next. Maybe you want to get to work on one of your tasks at hand. Or maybe you want to take a look at deeper issues and do some more tapping. Maybe you want to contact a practitioner if feeling overwhelmed is a very familiar feeling. Whatever you choose, you’ll be making that choice from a much better place now.
