How Can I Go On?

Hello 2012!

It’s been almost 6 months since the last time I was able to blog and so much has happened since then!

I moved in August and got married mid October! After the honeymoon, I spent November and December settling in and preparing for the holidays.

Time has just flown by, but now that we are well into the New Year, I wanted to start writing and inspiring with new tapping scripts for reaching the goals many have set for the year.
As I dug deep down inside myself for insight and inspiration, I also looked at the remarks and comments on my Calming Your Inner Storm Facebook page. I was drawn to all the sadness and grief that many readers have had to endure recently.

I realized there were many who couldn’t begin to entertain the thought of setting new goals because their hearts were so heavy with emotional grief.

I knew there was no way I could inspire or motivate until I could help lighten the emotional load so many have been carrying.

I felt led today to write a tapping script on dealing with grief as it relates to the death of a loved one. I hope the following script helps in some way to help ease your burdens and open your heart to carry you into this New Year.

If you are new to this blog and unfamiliar with the tapping process, please see the "introduction to tapping" link at the top of this page. It will provide you with everything you need to know!

As always, please change the words to fit your current situation

If you are dealing with the grief of a pet, please look in the archives last May for the post: “I will see you again on Rainbow Bridge”

Karate chop point:

"Even though I am full of grief, I deeply and completely love and accept myself”
"Even though my heart feels like it is going to break, I accept this feeling and everything it means to me”
"Even though I want to curl up in a ball and cry, I know I am stronger than I think I am right now”

Round One:

EB: All this death grief
SE: My heart is going to break
UE: So much sadness
UN: How can I go on?
CH: What will I do without _______ (insert name)?
CB: I feel so lost
UA: Don’t know how to go on
HD: This feeling consumes me
WR: Can time really heal all wounds?

** Now take a deep breath or two and proceed to the second round of tapping**

Round Two:

EB: I hate facing each new day
SE: I don’t like feeling this way
UE: I have to find a way to turn this around
UN: I want to be happy again
CH: I know I can’t change things
CB: I can’t bring ___________ (insert name) back
UA: _______ (insert name) would want me to go on
HD: They would want me to remember the good times
WR: And cherish all those memories

** Now take a deep breath or two and proceed to the third round of tapping**

Round Three:

EB: I forgive myself and anyone else who may have contributed to this grief
SE: I choose to quiet this inner storm starting today
UE: I will focus on happier times
UN: I choose to slowly let go
CH: I fully and freely release this grief
CB: My heart is starting to feel a little lighter
UA: I love how I am regaining control a little bit at a time
HD: Each day will get a little better
WR: I am starting to feel calmer and more peaceful!


  1. It's the first time I visited your blog although I've already liked your FB page a month ago.

    I have entered 2012 with a light heart filled with hope and love. I'll share this post on my page. Thank you for the inspiring words.

  2. Well done, Cindy. Chrissy died 46 weeks ago (but who's counting?) and even though I have been doing better and better, your tapping script brought tears and then relief to my heart...again.
    Like Carol Look, you seem to have the knack for hitting the nail on the head (for me) when it comes to Tapping Scripts. Thank you, Jim Mulvey

  3. melissa - Thank you for sharing! I am so grateful you have become a regular at CYIS!

  4. Jimmy, thank you for your kind words! To be used in the same paragraph as Carol Look is an honor! I have studied her work for years now and I think she is awesome!

    I hope you can use this tapping script as you deal with the loss of Chrissy - Blessings always!
