Aude came to me with a problem with concentration while revising for exams. She was in her early thirties and was studying to become a specialised carer for handicapped children & adults. In her final third year, she was revising for her exams as well as writing a 60 pages memoir about a compulsory 6 weeks working practise that she had just completed. Because of ill health, she had missed a lot of her schooling at the beginning of the year and had fallen behind with her studies. Faced with a huge amount of work, she just did not know where to begin and found it really difficult to concentrate on any given task.
We tapped the full EFT basic recipe on the fact that it was not her fault that she had fallen behind as well as various other aspects of the whole problem. Here are the setup affirmations we used:
Although I am really behind with my studies, I accept that it is not my fault and I truly & deeply accept myself.
Although I have so much to do that I don’t know where to start, I truly & deeply accept myself.
Although I feel I am not making much progress, I recognise that I am doing as much as I can and I truly & deeply accept myself.
We also tapped on her problem with concentration:
Although I am finding it very difficult to concentrate, I truly & deeply accept myself.
I then asked her to tap on the following every time she sat down to do some revisions:
Although I am finding it very difficult to concentrate, I choose to really enjoy revising.
Although I am finding it very difficult to revise, I choose to really enjoy learning new things.
I also asked her to tap on the following every time she sat down to work on her memoir:
Although I am finding it difficult to organise my ideas for my memoir, I choose to find it really easy to write down my memoir.
Although I am finding it difficult to write my memoir, I choose to really enjoy writing down ideas.
She did these tappings every time she sat to revise or write her memoir.
2 weeks after our first session, I contacted her to check up on her progress. She sounded much more relaxed and when I asked her about her memoir, she said it was finished and in the hands of her tutor for final proof-reading before submission. :-)
