Hi Everyone,

Stewart Robertson from the UK gives us four "reframing Set ups" for common issues. Very helpful because they help the client to see these issues differently. He says, "The four setups and reframes below are tailored to those who have been infected by the not-good-enough virus, or those stuck in sorrow or guilt."

Hugs, Gary


By Stewart Robertson

Feelings of shame, guilt, and unworthiness are among the lowest energies we can sustain as human beings.  Releasing them will have obvious benefits on our day to day energy, healing responses, and the universal abundance showing up in our lives.

The four setups and reframes below are tailored to those who have been infected by the not-good-enough virus, or those stuck in sorrow or guilt.  I usually begin on the Karate Chop point and continue round the usual points whilst continuing my ramblings of such perspectives.

For those concerned about tapping whilst stating positive phrases, remember that even where the client doesn’t “agree” with the statement, or the reframe doesn’t land, the tail-ender objection will immediately be brought up, and we will automatically be tapping on that, either consciously or unconsciously.  Needless to say, substitute your client’s situation and emotions into the setup, and customize as far as possible.

Even though I feel [ashamed, sorry, guilty], this issue doesn’t represent everything about me … it's not my entire person … it's not the last word on me … it doesn't represent me as a person … it doesn't describe all of me … much more to me … my skills, abilities, resources, sparkling attributes, and I am ultimately innocent, and always worthy of love, and I always have good intentions…

Even though I feel [ashamed, sorry, guilty] about this issue … and I DON'T forgive myself for this [problem] … I would never pin this on anyone else, and self-blame is no better than blaming someone else…

Even though I feel [ashamed, sorry, guilty] about this issue … and yet I never feel guilty that I am well, while others are sick … and I can never be hungry enough to feed one starving child, and not even one thimble-full of my guilt will change what happened, somehow I'm managing to feel guilty about this … somehow I'm believing that me feeling bad is helping in some way … which does seem ridiculous...

Even though I feel [ashamed, sorry, guilty] about this issue … I was born deserving, I'll die deserving … the only question is, if I'll give myself a break for the bit in the middle…

With best wishes

Stewart
