Hi Gary,

I have been working through my Personal Peace Procedure and have cleared the 'major ones'.However what I was left with were global and general feelings; one was about not being good enough. I had made good progress on this but I knew there was more to do but I couldn't find any real memories or events that had any charge to them. So I looked for a different way that could lead to the underlying core issues. I know that it is difficult to be both 'doctor and patient' but I was determined to try.

One day, when I had done something 'stupid', I actually realized that I was in the process of a 'not being good enough' thing and I was really quite shocked to hear the things I was saying to myself, talk about reinforcement!

The thing that really struck me was that it was as though there was another person in my head saying theses things to me. Now I know about our 'inner critic' and had done lots of tapping around this but I had always used 'I', as in 'I'm not good enough' and 'I don't deserve ' etc. Now I realized that I don't use 'I' when this stuff is going on it's always 'you'!

As I noted the things I was saying like 'You idiot', 'you always do that', 'you should know better', 'why do you keep doing it?', 'you never get anything right', 'You're useless', 'you just never learn' and 'you don't deserve anything', I wondered if I had hit on something.

I tapped a few rounds on the above ending with 'You deeply and completely accept yourself anyway' and felt quite a few shifts, a few tears and fleeting images of people from my past and after that I felt quite calm and much lighter.

I noticed that in subsequent situations where this reaction would have been normal for me I was being much less hard on myself and way more accepting of what was happening.

I have also begun to use this 'self talk tapping' with my clients, who have found it very empowering and useful for clearing the inner critical part of themselves that cannot always be found from an event or clear memory .

It's another door!
