Tapping on the Karate Chop Point (Side of Hand) repeat the following:

Even though I’m having these really horrible hot flushes,

I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I’m having these debilitating night sweats,

I deeply and completely love and forgive myself.

Even though I’m having these menopausal symptoms,

The hot flushes and the night sweats,

During the day, and during the night,

These dratted hormones,

Causing havoc in my body,

Feeling so out of control,

It’s such a pain,

And so embarrassing when the flushes occur,

And everyone can see my bright red face,

Getting all hot and sticky,

Needing to throw off the layers of clothing,

Always too hot,

Even when everyone else is quite cool,

And I don’t feel cool,

With my bright red face,

And this hot, tight feeling running through my body,

My head feels so tight and heavy,

Feeling like I’m on fire,

As wave after wave of heat rolls over me.

And then at night,

I’m settling down to sleep,

But now I’m kept awake by these dreadful night sweats

They keep me awake

And it’s so horrible to lie in hot, sticky bed clothes

Feeling like I need to put a towel in the bed.

And it not only disturbs me,

But my husband as well,

Especially when I have to get up and change the bedding

Sodden through,

Disturbing my sleep,

Feeling on fire,

SOAKED in perspiration,

My body, my hair, drenched,

Pillows and sheets so tight and hot,

Stifling and suffocating,

Feeling clammy and wet,

Feeling so unsexy and un-feminine

Poor husband having to sleep with a sweating furnace,

And I don’t know when it’s going to end

And I can go back to a good night’s sleep,

Instead of tossing and turning,

With boiling blood.

I feel so out of control,

As my body takes over,

Driving me mad!

And even though I have these horrible hot flushes and debilitating night sweats,

I deeply and completely,

Love, forgive and accept myself.
