Tapping on Self-Trust and How to Build It

Last week we saw how we could learn to trust ourselves, this week I would like you to tap on it so that this really gets ingrained in your being and you really get the change in your body as well as your mind.

For a more detailed explanation of tapping, watch this video:


Here are the tapping points

KC: Karate Chop

EB: Eye Brow

SE: Side of the Eye

UE: Under the Eye

UN: Under the Nose

CH: Chin

CB: Collar Bone

UA: Under the Arm

TH: Top of the Head


So, rate how you are currently feeling on a scale from 0 to 10.

And then just go through the following script.


KC       Even though I sometimes find it difficult to believe in myself I choose to love and accept myself as I am anyway.

Even though there seem to be so many obstacles and points of failure that I am doubting my ability to overcome them, I deeply and completely do love and accept myself.

Even though I have a feeling I might be sabotaging my own efforts, I am willing to place more faith in myself as I deeply and completely love and accept myself just as I am.


EB       how can I trust myself

SE       when I do not do what I promise myself

UE       I am not keeping my word to myself

UN       which makes it hard to trust myself

CH       I find it difficult to believe in myself

CB       there seem to be so many obstacles and points of failure

UA       I am doubting my ability to overcome them

TH       I feel like I am sabotaging my own efforts


EB       I say one thing and do another

SE       I am feeling victimized on my own hands

UE       I often think that I can’t do it

UN       that I am not good enough

CH       that is why do I keep doing this

CB       going against myself

UA       doing all this stupid stuff

TH       that comes back to bite me


EB       there must be something wrong with me

SE       I doubt myself

UE       I second-guess myself

UN       I’m not sure I have it in me

CH       maybe I should scale down my dreams

CB       set “realistic” goals

UA       more suited to my ability

TH       let’s face it, not everything is achievable


EB       I’ve learned it first hand

SE       and other people say it too

UE       it is best to settle for average

UN       that way I won’t have to face failure

CH       I do not have to believe in myself,

CB       I do not have to go after my dreams

UA       that way I can just relax

TH       I do not have to feel the pressure


EB       but I think that is very scary

SE       because that won’t get me anywhere

UE       at least it feels that way

UN       do I not want me to succeed?

CH       do I not want me to be happy?

CB       then why oh why do I get in my own way

UA       I love making things harder for myself, don’t I

TH       it feels like a habit


EB       it is like being on auto-pilot

SE       and I’m not even aware of doing it

UE       at least not until it’s too late

UN       if a good thing might come my way

CH       I’ll make sure that it doesn’t

CB       I truly am sabotaging myself

UA       and a few other things in my life as well

TH       I cannot count on myself


EB       but who can I count on if not me

SE       I’m supposed to be my best friend

UE       where did I learn to be my worst enemy

UN       who taught me to be this way

CH       what if what they say isn’t true

CB       what if I don’t have to settle for average

UA       I wonder if I can turn it around

TH       beating myself up hasn’t worked


EB       maybe forgiveness helps

SE       I forgive myself for my actions

UE       I choose compassion for myself

UN       allowing myself to look past my actions

CH       to really understand why I do what I do

CB       promising to support myself

UA       no matter what

TH       that is how I am becoming my best friend


EB       I’m going for my dreams

SE       because they are worth fighting for

UE       and I have it in me to make them happen!

UN       and if I fail I’ll pick myself up again

CH       if they make fun of me I’ll hold my chin up

CB       if I can’t do it right the first time I’ll try again

UA       I am human

TH       everybody messes up sometimes


EB       at least I tried

SE       maybe I don’t have to be so hard on myself

UE       because I am learning from my mistakes

UN       I can let this go and move forward

CH       beating myself up isn’t helpful

CB       I will keep trying

UA       It’s never too late to change

TH       I know can count on myself

SE       ♡ and this helps me to trust myself

UE       ♡ I trust my own decisions

UN       ♡ it’s safe to be me

CH       ♡ I love being me

CB       ♡ I easily and lovingly show my true self

UA       ♡ I am powerful

TH       ♡ I am supported by myself and the universe


Now, take a deep breath in and slowly breathe out.

Then notice how you are feeling and rate that on the scale from 0 to 10.

I bet you feel better than when you started, right?

If you do this every morning, start your day off with an exercise like this, you will be amazed at the shift within you, and how fast you will notice the changes that are going to happen around you.
