Make it Inspiring

Self Help for Clients and yourSELF

By Ranjana Appoo

“The search for contentment is not merely a self-preserving and self-benefitting act, but also a generous gift to the world. Clearing out all your misery gets you out of the way. You cease being an obstacle, not only to yourself but anyone else. Only then you are free to serve and enjoy other people” Elizabeth Gilbert from Eat, Pray, Love

For me, practising SELF help is not just about healing pain but about finding the deep contentment of knowing who we are and our intimate yet divine connection to the world around us. I see SELF help as synonymous with SELF Knowledge.  To KNOW mySELF is to HELP mySELF and vice versa. A favourite Self Help tool of mine is using INSPIRING phrases, quotes, sentences for 28 days or more. Below I have shared 3 of my favourite quotes, and each time I used one of these for a month I made a huge shift.

My clients always report astonishing results after this one simple easy to follow exercise. I remember one client who booked sessions with me on a monthly basis, diligently practised SELF help especially the “I love myself” one below. She reported dramatic changes in the month, the most startling being that she forgave someone that she never believed she could.

Every time i see a client one of the first things I do is check what they are doing for SELF help. My reasoning behind this is if they are not doing this then the chances of them depending on me for change and help are quite high and I really do not want to encourage that. It is important for me that the client is empowered and in charge of their own healing process. So I make this very clear to them. Providing SELF help tools is a great step in that direction.

So without further ado here are 3 favourite SELF help inspirational tapping Sequences, simply tap or imagine tapping on the points as you say these words. Try any one of them for a month and notice if it makes a difference.

This First one was written by Ruth Fox from adventures in Conciousness.

I acknowledge the possibility by Ruth Fox


Karate Chop:  I acknowledge the possibility

Eyebrow:  that the apparently impossible

Side of Eye:  may become possible

Under Eye:  in ways that I cannot imagine right now

Under nose:  and I acknowledge that it may happen

Chin:  in unexpected ways

Collarbone:  and that it could come about much more quickly than I ever thought it could

Underarm:  and that it could just surprise me

Top of Head:  and bring me incredible excitement, peace and joy when I see it unfolding.


The next one is well known for being read by Nelson Mandela, it is from Marianne Williamson’s, Return to Love

Our Greatest Fear is not that we are inadequate. (Eye Brow)

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. (Side Eye)

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. (Under Eye)

We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?” (Under nose)

Actually, who are you not to be? (Chin)

You are a child of God.  (Collar bone)

Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. (Under arm)

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. (Head)

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.  (Eye Brow)

It is not just in some of us, (Side of Eye) it is in every one, (Under Eye)

And as we let our own light shine, (Under Nose)

We unconsciously give other people (Chin)

Permission to do the same (Collarbone)

As we are liberated from our own fear, (Under arm)

Our presence automatically liberates others. (Head)

The last one is, I Love Myself Just the Way I Am, A Song of Affirmation by Jai Josefs. It is an incredibly empowering tapping sequence. When I began tapping with this, the results were phenomenal. I felt lighter, kinder and so much more at peace with everything in a very dynamic way. The feeling has never gone away.


Eyebrow: I love myself the way I am,

Side of Eye: there’s nothing I need to change

Under Eye: I’ll always be the perfect me

Under Nose: there’s nothing to rearrange

Chin point: I’m beautiful and capable

Collarbone: of being the best me I can

Under Arm: And I love myself

Top of Head: Just the way I am


Eyebrow: I love you the way you are,

Side of Eye: there’s nothing you need to do

Under Eye: When I feel the love inside of me

Under Nose: It’s easy to love you

Chin point: Behind your fears, your rage and tears

Collarbone: I see your shining star

Under Arm: And I love you

Top of Head: Just the way you are


Eyebrow: I love the world the way it is,

Side of Eye: and I can clearly see

Under Eye: that all the things I judge are done

Under Nose: by people just like me

Chin point: So till the birth of peace on Earth

Collarbone: that only love can bring

Under Arm: I will help it grow

Top of Head: By Loving Everything


Eyebrow: I love myself the way I am,

Side of Eye: and still I want to grow

Under Eye: For change inside can only come

Under Nose: when deep inside I know

Chin point: I’m beautiful and capable

Collarbone: of being the best me I can

Under Arm: And I love myself

Top of Head: Just the way I am

Hope this Inspires you J

Thanks for sharing your wisdom.

I admire you greatly. I would like to know if you can help me.
I am a resident of NYC (USA). My question :
How could I help one of my relatives
who is 36 but refuse to admit that 'alcoholism' is controling his life. As a consequence, his family is badly affected.

May the universe bless you generously.

Love and Gratitude,


~Have a very Healthy 2016 !!! ~

Dearest Doris,
This is a complex question. Here are my suggestions:
a. It would be great if you can find an emotional freedom practitioner and
/ or trainer near you that can help you.
b. The work of Dr. Len Hew (Ho'oponopono) and Pierre Praverand (the power of blessings) will be very useful.
c. If you would like to book a session with us then do look at our website www.emotionalhealthcentre.com for more information regarding our work.
d. Our book, "Detachment: The Secret to Infinite Peace" will also have answers for you. Hope this helps.
Best Wishes and a Happy New Year,
