Tapping for Enneagram Type Five

Enneagram Type Five

Even though I have all these issues below, I now understand that it is part of who I am, I deeply and completely love and accept myself, I forgive myself and I forgive anyone else who contributed to this situation. Sometimes it’s hard to be me, I acknowledge that I have some challenges like:

  • being slow to put my knowledge and insights out in the world, but that’s ok
  • feeling bad when I act defensive or like a know-it-all, but that’s ok
  • being pressured to be with people when I don’t want to be, but that’s ok
  • watching others with better social skills, but less intelligence or technical skill, do better professionally, but that’s ok

Now that I understand more, I can also choose to transcend and release those energies which are not in my best interest to retain. I now choose to release……

  • all fearfulness of the world around me.
  • all feelings of powerlessness and hopelessness.
  • my fear of being violated or overwhelmed by others.
  • my dark and destructive fantasies.
  • isolating myself by rejecting others.
  • believing that no one can be depended on.
  • desiring to antagonize others and ruin their peace of mind.
  • being cynical and contemptuous of the normalcy of others.
  • fearing that others will exploit me.
  • feeling that I am a misfit in life.
  • being secretive and hiding from people.
  • postponing my emotional needs.
  • neglecting my physical health and appearance.
  • the agitation and restlessness of my mind.
  • feeling that I always need to know more before I do anything.
  • avoiding my life by escaping into my mind.

I now choose to appreciate myself for…

  • standing back and viewing life objectively
  • coming to a thorough understanding; perceiving causes and effects
  • my sense of integrity: doing what I think is right and not being influenced by social pressure
  • not being caught up in material possessions and status
  • being calm in a crisis

I now choose to affirm…

  • that I am secure and grounded in the reality of my own life.
  • the strength and wonder of my body.
  • the value of my inventiveness and sense of humor.
  • that I accept uncertainty and abiguity.
  • that my life and struggles are meaningful and rewarding.
  • that I have faith in the future and in human beings.
  • that I reach out to others confidently as an equal.
  • that I find serenity in being compassionate toward others.
  • that I support others from the fullness of my heart.
