Tapping for Enneagram Type One

Enneagram Type One

Even though I have these issues, 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 these issues. I recognise that sometimes it is hard to be a One, I have some issues like:

  • being disappointed with myself or others when my expectations are not met, but that’s ok
  • feeling burdened by too much responsibility, but that’s ok
  • thinking that what I do is never good enough, but that’s ok
  • not being appreciated for what I do for people, but that’s ok
  • being upset because others aren’t trying as hard as I am, but that’s ok
  • obsessing about what I did or what I should do, but that’s ok
  • being tense, anxious, and taking things too seriously, but that’s ok

I deeply and completely love and accept myself anyway, I forgive myself and anyone else who contributed
to this situation.

I now choose to release…

  • holding myself and others to impossible standards.
  • my fear of losing control and becoming irrational.
  • my fear of being condemned for being wrong.
  • refusing to see my own contradictions.
  • rationalizing my own behavior.
  • obsessing about things I cannot change.
  • all bitterness and disappointment with the world.

  • believing that I am in a position to judge others.

  • fearing and disowning my body and my feelings.
  • allowing my desire for order and efficiency to control my life.
  • automatically focusing on what is wrong with things.

  • being reasonable, responsible, and dedicated in everything I do
