Hello, friends! And welcome to Move Into Coherence. I’m Pamela Stokes. In today’s episode we will be doing an EFT Tapping script for rage. It’s a challenging emotion, and, rather than having it spill out when we don’t want it to, we can have a little say in the matter and calm our nervous system. So let’s get into it.
Rage is not the same as anger, because it contains a component of the fight-flight-freeze mechanism—the trauma response—and that’s why it can spill out or be explosive. In this tapping script, we’re going to be using a different hold than we normally have and this way we can really tell our nervous system everything’s OK, everything’s OK at the same time that we’re saying these words. The way that we’re going to be doing the hold is very simple. One hand will come behind the head, just above the neck, in the lower part of the skull that’s called the occipital region. That hand will be horizontal. The other hand will be—placing vertically—your palm over your third eye (forehead) area and your fingers will wrap around the top of your skull, coming to the crown. So your longest fingers will touch the crown of your head. This is a really nice hold. If it’s too long of a time to hold it this way, you can switch your hands; you can relax your hands in the middle and then come back into that pose. But I think this one’s a really nice one to really feel that support of your own self holding yourself gently, and really allowing yourself to feel these things. So let’s begin.
Check in with your body when you think about what makes you feel rage. Let yourself feel some of the rage, and notice where you feel it, and how strong it is. Give it a rating from zero to 10. And now we’ll take three calming breaths through the nose and deep into the lungs: inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, inhale, and exhale. And then repeat after me, placing your hands in the position that I described.
Even though I feel this rage, and I feel it in my _______________(You can fill in the blank here.), I choose to love and accept myself anyway.
Even though I feel this rage, I choose to love and honor myself.
Even though I feel this rage, things are really upsetting me, and even though I feel this rage, I choose to deeply and completely love, honor, and accept myself, and maybe anyone else who might contribute to this rage, but probably not yet.
All this rage
All this rage
I’m so angry
I am so angry
I can’t believe these things are happening
I can’t believe people do these things
I’m so upset
I’m so angry
And I have a right to be angry
I cannot deny what I feel
Part of being human is feeling emotions
And needing to express them
Not to suppress them
I’m feeling them now
I also have a right to feel peace
Part of me says I don’t
I should be angry
I should feel this rage
I have to feel this rage
I must be this angry
Maybe I’m hoping it will motivate me
Part of me likes the feeling of power that comes with this rage
What am I hoping I’ll do if I get angry enough
Perhaps I will speak out
If I speak out when I’m enraged
Will it be effective ?
Perhaps I can access this power within the rage
To express myself in constructive ways
I cannot deny what I feel
—–And let’s take a pause here and do a Sigh of Relief. And you can relax your hands. Small breath in through the nose, larger breath in, and then with mouth closed, mmmmm. And then go ahead and place your hands again in those areas: one on the back of your head just above your neck and the other one on the forehead with the fingers wrapping up towards the crown. And let’s continue. Repeat after me.
Maybe I need this rage to overcome fear
Maybe I’m afraid of taking action
And I’m trying to get so upset
That I’ll force myself to take action
And I’ll deal with the consequences later
Maybe I can remember times in the past
Where I allowed rage to motivate me into action
Maybe it didn’t work out so well
So I’m allowing myself to calm down
And figure out what really needs to be done
As I clear the rage
I also clear the fear that stops me from taking action
And finding the best solutions
I’m clearing the fear that if I’m not outraged
I won’t stop things that I think are wrong
If I’m not outraged
I’ll just let bad things happen
Who cares? I feel fine.
I’m clearing my fear of this
As I clear my fear of taking action
And let go of this need to feel outraged to motivate me
I’m clearing the fear and the rage
And allowing myself to calm down
And see what’s really important
What’s the best I can do here
What’s the wisest choice I can make
The more I calm down
The wiser I get
So I’m allowing myself to calm down now
And allowing my wisdom to guide me
I can express my emotions in a way
That helps me use my wise mind
To find creative solutions
I’m choosing to let go of the fear
I’m choosing to let go of the rage
Allowing it to move through me
So I can be free to feel ease in my body
It’s safe to feel ease in my body
Allowing in the ease and calm
Feeling calm now
And allowing in my natural state of peace
In my body mind and spirit
And now let’s relax the hands, and we’ll do another Sigh of Relief. Small breath in through the nose, larger breath in and with lips closed, mmmmm. Thank you.
Today’s episode was about how we deal with rage. It can be a difficult emotion to feel. It’s best not to suppress it, but to allow ourselves to feel just enough, so that we can find ways to use it constructively. Maybe there is something that we need to be motivated to do—to take action—but not with rage. We stay in a place of calm and peace, we’re much more effective. We reduce the fear when we do this tapping script—getting us out of the trauma reflex and coming into our natural state of calm confidence. There’s definitely a lot of things these days to feel angry about and rageful, but it only creates more problems if we act out violently. I hope that you’ll guide yourself to find some peace and calm and clarity of mind, and perhaps take some action with a smile on your face. Thank you for joining in today, and send yourself some appreciation for doing so. This has been Move Into Coherence. I’m Pamela Stokes. Take it easy. ☺️
