Tapping for Enneagram Type Three

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 these issues. Sometimes I have challenges like

  • having to put up with inefficiency and incompetence, but that’s ok
  • the fear of not being — or of not being seen as — successful, but that’s ok
  • comparing myself to people who do things better, but that’s ok
  • struggling to hang on to my success, but that’s ok
  • putting on facades in order to impress people, but that’s ok
  • always being “on.” It’s exhausting, 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……

  • being obsessed by my hostile feelings toward others.
  • believing that sabotaging others will make things better for me.
  • feeling jealous of others and their good fortune.
  • my fear of failing and being humiliated.
  • fearing that I am inadequate and will be rejected.
  • feeling that I must conceal my mistakes and limitations.
  • closing down my feelings in order to function.
  • betraying my own integrity to get the admiration of others.
  • attempting to misrepresent myself and my abilities.
  • the grandiose expectations I have of myself.
  • craving constant attention and affirmation.
  • using arrogance to compensate for my own insecurity.
  • desiring to impress others with my performance.
  • concealing myself behind masks.
  • comparing myself with others.
  • driving myself relentlessly to be the best.

I choose to acknowledge and appreciate myself for my strong points, like

  • being optimistic, friendly, and upbeat
  • providing well for my family
  • being able to recover quickly from setbacks and to charge ahead to the next challenge
  • staying informed, knowing what’s going on
  • being competent and able to get things to work efficiently
  • being able to motivate people

I now choose to affirm…

  • that I have value regardless of my achievements.
  • that I am centered and emotionally available.
  • that I am caring and have a good heart.
  • that I take in the love others give me.
  • that I am responsible to those who look up to me.
  • that I am happy to work for the good of others.
  • that I develop my true talents by accepting who I am.
  • that I delight in the accomplishments and successes of others.
  • that I can reveal my real self without being afraid.
