Tapping for Enneagram Type Two

Enneagram Type Two

Sometimes it’s hard to be me. 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 issues like

  • not being able to say no, but that’s ok
  • having low self-esteem, but that’s ok
  • feeling drained from overdoing for others, but that’s ok
  • not doing things I really like to do for myself for fear of being selfish, but that’s ok
  • criticizing myself for not feeling as loving as I think I should, but that’s ok
  • being upset that others don’t tune in to me as much as I tume in to them, but that’s ok
  • working so hard to be tactful and considerate that I suppress my real feelings, 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 feelings of rage and resentment toward others.
  • all attempts to justify my aggressive feelings.
  • all attachment to feeling victimized and abused.
  • the fear that I am unwanted and unloved.
  • all attempts to force others to love me.
  • making others feel guilty for not responding sufficiently to my needs.
  • abusing food and medications to make up for my loneliness.
  • feeling that others owe me for the things I have chosen to do for them.
  • believing that no one willingly takes care of me.
  • expecting others to repay my help in the way I want.
  • all physical ailments, aches, and complaints.
  • calling attention to what I have done for others.
  • feeling possessive of loved ones.
  • doing things for others to make myself needed.
  • flattering others to make them feel good about me.
  • not wanting to acknowledge my negative feelings.

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

  • being able to relate easily to people and to make friends
  • knowing what people need and being able to make their lives better
  • being generous, caring, and warm
  • being sensitive to and perceptive about others’ feelings
  • being enthusiastic and fun-loving, and having a good sense of humor

I now CHOOSE to affirm…

  • that I own all of my feelings without fear.
  • that I am clear and conscious of my motives.
  • that I am lovable for who I am.
  • that my happiness does not depend on pleasing others.
  • that I can let go of loved ones – allowing them to be themselves, and me to be myself.
  • that I nurture my own growth and development.
  • that I love others without expecting anything in return.
  • the joy and warmth that fills my heart.
