Session Transcript

We subconsciously can use emotion to manipulate people and situations and to try and get support and be understood. As emotions are meant to support us in feeling good and to also be used as a navigation tool to help us make decisions, using them for other purposes can be a hindrance to what they are designed to be used for. This clearing will help you stop the pattern of misusing your emotions in ways that will only create more lack, pain, and struggle in your life.

Repeat this affirmation after me, “I am recognizing any emotional addictions that are not serving me and letting them go. I am connected to my center of calmness.”

While tapping, repeat after me. “Thank you, God, for helping me release all of my patterns of emotional addiction, including, ‘Nobody would notice me if I don’t get emotional.’ Putting up emotional walls to punish you. Overreacting to get back at you. You’re not listening so I’m going to get upset so you will listen to me.

“I won’t let you know how I feel because you don’t really care. You had your chance to support me emotionally, but now it’s too late. I’ll just keep it to myself. Sad my emotional needs are not met, still looking for someone to meet them. It’s your job to take care of me emotionally, don’t you know that? Releasing and letting go of the only way I will get my way is if I’m sad or upset. Now you’ll listen to me now that I’m getting emotional about it. My needs are not met. Emotion gets me attention.”

“Angry that I lose control. Nobody listens to me until I get angry. Using anger to get my way. Using sadness to get noticed. Feeling empty if I don’t feel all of this pent-up emotion. Releasing and ending the pattern of don’t know how to use words to ask for what I want. Pouting so you will ask me what’s wrong. It’s your job to read my emotions and then reach out to me. Angry when you don’t notice I am upset. Didn’t get my emotional needs met as a child, looking to you to take care of me emotionally now. What’s wrong with you? Don’t you know I need your emotional support? Why should I have to ask for it? If you really love me, you would know how I feel.”

Let it all go once and for all, tapping it out of your body, your mind, take a deep breath in and release it.

Place your hand on your chest connecting with your heart energy and repeat after me, “I forgive myself for using my emotion to get my needs met, I’m doing the best I know how.”

Continue tapping while repeating after me, “Thank you, God, I am growing up emotionally. I am using my feelings in healthy supportive ways that add peace and happiness to my life. I am in charge of my emotional self. I am sharing how I feel when it is appropriate. Positive outcomes result from it. It is safe to feel my feelings. I give myself attention and receive attention from others. I am in control of my feelings. I manage them wisely. I am emotionally balanced and calm and I am heard. When it is correct for me, things go my way and I stay calm. I feel full of joy and peace and it is familiar. I am noticed for the good person I am. The appropriate words come to me to share how I am feeling. When I need emotional support, I ask for it, and I receive it.

I always create positive experiences and outcomes. I am calm. I am at peace. I am managing my emotions wisely. I am feeling all my feelings. I am connected to my emotional self.”

Take a deep breath, and fill yourself with light, feeling that joy that you’re now feeling, that peace, that calmness, and breathe it in. As you move through your day, notice any tendencies you have to use emotion to be manipulative in any way and try and get something that you’re not asking for in that moment with your new-found awareness, chose to use words instead and put words to how you’re feeling and you’ll be amazed at how much support you readily bring to yourself.
