Are you afraid to face the truth? Facing the truth about a situation is not always easy.
It can be scary and overwhelming to look past wishful thinking and facing the reality of our life, the reality of a situation or a personal relationship.
On the other hand, releasing the fear of facing the truth is the first step to a successful life.
When we have the courage to just look at things the way they are, it becomes much easier for us to make good decisions.
Facing the truth gives us options to decide what we want to do, how we want to take charge and how we want to continue to live our life.
Take a heart and tap along!
First, I'd like to encourage you to chose a topic for your tapping. Pick something that you don't want to look at.
Rate your fear of facing it on a scale of 0-10.
Where do you feel this in your body?
For the purpose of this tapping sequence, we will assume it is in your gut and throat. But it might be a different location for you.
Just acknowledge that it is there and make a mental note of how strong it is.
Then let the thoughts go and just focus on the tapping.
No need to get upset now!
KP: Even though I have this gut wrenching fear of facing the truth, I completely accept myself and my feelings
KP: Even though I just can't get over this fear, I just don't want to go there, I love and accept myself, and I choose courage when the time is right.
KP: Even though I feel so overwhelmed by this thought, I don't want to have to look at it what if it is not safe or I get hurt badly? - I choose to be more calm and relaxed anyway. Everything happens in devine and perfect order.
TH: I am overwhelmed.
IE: I am REALLY scared right now
OE: I really don't want to have to face this
UE: I just don't want to, it feels too uncomfortable, too scary to me
UN: I really don't want to have to think about this
UL: I just don't can't go there, it doesn't feel safe
CB: I have this unsettling feeling of overwhelm right now
UA: This fear that I just can't go there
TH: I have this feeling in my gut that I don't want to face this, I just can't, and that's the truth!
OK, well done 🙂 Take a breath and just relax for a moment.
This is not easy. I understand. Just breathe, and get ready for another tapping round
TH: What if I could allow myself to just relax a bit
IE: What if I could feel more in control, even if it's hard
OE: Maybe I don't have to be so overwhelmingly fearful
UE: Maybe I could just take a peek at what is truly going on
UN: I can choose to tap along until I feel better
UL: After all, what happens happens, whether I know about it or not
CB: But when I know what's going on, I can make better decisions
UA: And I don't have to feel so overwhelmed and out of control anymore.
TH: I choose to feel a bit better about myself and the control that I have, even if I have to face the truth about this.
Take a breath again. Do you feel a bit more optimistic? Do you notice a shift?
Nothing has happened yet. You are in control. Just take it one step at a time and as you tap along, you will find more and more opportunities to make decisions that help you move forward.
TH: What if I could be relaxed and just let it be easy?
IE: What if I was making at least a part of this problem up?
OE: My denying of the truth doesn't change a thing
UE: It just makes me feel uncomfortable, it makes me feel scared
UN: I choose to release this daunting fear now
UL: And I choose to begin to explore what the truth is all about
CB: I choose to be very thorough with this and honest to myself
UA: After all, I know that there is more to it than just what I am afraid of.
TH: I am grateful that I am now beginning to see this differently.
Take another breath and check in with your body. How do you feel? What is coming up for you?
Any changes? Good - take a mental note.
Let's do one last round on Gratitude:
TH: I am grateful that I am beginning to let go of this fear
IE: I am grateful that I didn't give up, and take it one step at a time
OE: I am grateful that I have the courage to claim my power back from this daunting fear
UE: And to begin to see opportunities where I used to only see fear
UN: Maybe I can begin to see the truth in all of it's facets
UL: The truth is not one dimensional - there are many things I can impact and change
CB: I am grateful for my courage to put this behind me
UA: And I feel confident now that I can handle this, one step at a time.
TH: And even though I was so afraid to face this, I am grateful for the opportunities I am beginning to see.
Thank you, I am grateful for my control and strength.
Breathe. And check in with your body. How do you feel?
What do you notice?
There is so much to facing and understanding the truth, and when you have the courage to see the whole picture and not just a part of it, you will also find your strength to make the right decisions and do what you have to do to let the truth be a good thing.
