How to Manifest Quickly Using EFT Tapping

Written by: Nick Ortner

All too often, our goals consist of little more than a “list”…

  • Make a million dollars
  • Get my book published
  • Travel the world
  • Support my favorite charity

…and so on.

It’s certainly a great start to write them down, but if you don’t dig deeper, they’re unlikely to happen as quickly and completely as you’d like them to.

I’m sure you’ve read plenty of information on how to improve your goals: add emotional value, use visuals, expand on the feelings you’ll have when you achieve the goal, look at them more often, etc.

And all of those ideas are great, but if you’re not in FULL alignment with your goal in the FIRST PLACE, you’re basically wasting your time.

Remember, alignment isn’t just a surface, conscious alignment. You need to be aligned on all levels. You need to address your “what ifs” and “buts” about the issue fully.

When you do that, you get out of your own way and can make things happen without those patterns of self-sabotage that are all too familiar.

Here’s a process with Tapping to help you. This process involves having a general understanding of the Tapping protocols. If you’re new to Tapping, take a moment to review the basics of EFT Tapping.

Remember, the more issues you address around all aspects of your goals, the better your results will be! Perhaps commit to working on one goal or issue a day for 30 days and see what happens.

Step 1: Write down your goal, dream, or aspiration

You can make this a specific goal like: I want to earn a million dollars a year

A more general goal: I want to bring peace to my relationship with my mom

Or it can be stated more as a vision: I’d like to create dramatic social change

With this process, don’t worry about getting it right. Whatever language pops up in your head first, that’s the right language. But DO make sure to write it down.


Step 2: Write down your immediate gut response when you read that goal

How do you FEEL?

Are you 100% in alignment with it?

How does your body respond to reading it?

For example, you might feel and write down, “I feel uncomfortable when I read this, I’m excited, I’m anxious…”

Be specific in your notes and give every feeling a 0-10 rating.

So if you’re feeling anxious as you read the goal, write down, “I’m feeling anxious” and then put a number of its intensity next to it. “8” for example.

You can write down more than one emotion or feeling. Be as specific as possible.

Do you feel tension in your stomach? Write that down.

Are you slightly nauseous? Write that down.


Step 3: Write down what other people would say about your goal if you shared it with them

Friends, family members, society, co-workers, etc.

Whatever pops in your head first, write that down.

So if you think about sharing your goal with your mom, and you picture her saying, “That’s a silly idea…” then write that down, PLUS how you FEEL about her thoughts.

Be specific and give it a number of intensity, as described above.


Step 4: Write down YOUR beliefs about the goal

For example, “Part of me thinks this is impossible… I’ve never been able to do this before… Who am I to think I can achieve this…?”

Note the feelings this brings up and write those down as well.

Be specific and assign them a number of emotional intensity.


Step 5: Systematically tap OUT all of this RESISTANCE and tap IN, positive feelings & expectations!

Go through each item that brought up an emotional response, and tap on it until you bring the feelings around it down to “0” or a low number.

Be sure to keep note of anything else that comes up through the process.

You may not be able to do this in one session, so take your time with it.

When you have tapped through all the issues (and make sure to keep digging for more hidden ones), you’ve then cleared the way for your goal to become a reality!

Tapping Script Example

Let’s go through one example of what this might look like together, so you can tap along.

I’m just making up potential responses so you can see how it works…

Step 1: Write down the goal

EXAMPLE: I want to earn $250,000 a year

Step 2: How do you FEEL?

EXAMPLE: Looking at this, I get a little nervous. There’s a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach, and pressure around making this work. When I close my eyes, I feel this sinking feeling at a 7.

When I ask myself what this feeling is, it’s anxiety. I’m going to do some tapping on this now.

Karate Chop: Even though I have this sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach, I deeply and completely accept myself.
Karate Chop: Even though I have this sinking feeling about making $250,000, I choose to relax now.
Karate Chop: Even though I feel uncomfortable in my body when I look at this goal, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Eyebrow: This sinking feeling
Side of Eye: I’m feeling a little nervous
Under Eye: This sinking feeling
Under Nose: In the pit of my stomach
Under Mouth: I feel pressure around making this work
Collarbone: I feel this anxiety in my stomach
Under Arm: All this anxiety
Top of Head: All this sinking feeling

Keep on tapping around the meridian points on whatever comes up until you bring it down enough to find some relief and feel ready to move on to the positive.


Eyebrow: I chose to relax now
Side of Eye: And release this sinking feeling
Under Eye: I let it all go
Under Nose: From the pit of my stomach
Under Mouth: All this anxiety
Collarbone: Releases now
Under Arm: All this fear about making $250,000 a year
Top of Head: Releases now

Step 3: Write down what other people would say about your Goal if you shared it with them

EXAMPLE: If I told my friends I wanted to make $250,000 a year, half of them would laugh at me and the other half would tell me I was being greedy.

When I think about telling my friends, I just feel small and not confident at all. This feeling is at an 8.

Karate Chop: Even though I don’t feel confident telling my friends about my goal, I deeply and completely accept myself.
Karate Chop: Even though I don’t want my friends to know my goal, I deeply and completely accept myself.
Karate Chop: Even though I know they’ll judge me if I tell them my goal, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Eyebrow: I don’t want to tell my friends
Side of Eye: When I think about telling them, it makes me feel small
Under Eye: This feeling of being small
Under Nose: I’m worried that they’ll judge me
Under Mouth: I’m worried they won’t like me
Collarbone: I’m worried about what my friends will think
Under Arm: If I tell them my goal
Top of Head: Or if I achieve my goal!

Keep on tapping around the meridian points on whatever comes up until you bring it down enough to find some relief and feel ready to move to the positive.


Eyebrow: I release this feeling of being small
Side of Eye: I chose to feel big!
Under Eye: I’m confident in my goal
Under Nose: And I release any anxiety about it
Under Mouth: I’m confident in what I want for myself
Collarbone: And I’m confident that the right people will support me
Under Arm: Feeling strong and confident
Top of Head: Feeling strong and confident!

Continue on to Step 4 and 5, rinse and repeat 🙂

Seriously, the KEY to this process is to get specific on your issues, on your feelings, and to be SYSTEMATIC about it, going through all the different ASPECTS of the issue.

I’d love to hear your results! Please share them below!

    Had a LOL moment while reading your $250,000 script. I used $250,000,000 instead. Then immediately went to “are you kidding me?” in my own mind. Then I replied to my mind: Why can’t I have $250,000,000 instead. It’s only 3 zeros (nothings) more? Thank you, Nick.

  2. Diana Larussa says:

    This article gave me some great tips on how to script my own thoughts in an organized fashion. This is helpful because I just drift in my tapping attempts. I really need a lift in my life as I sort out everything (again). I printed out the page so that I could keep myself in order!
    Thanks and I tap for success in all areas of my life so my pleas for help can manifest before my eyes and in my heart.
    I need this to give me the $ boost, the soul-mate boost and the ‘I’m going to move’ boost…I can’t wait to see where this goes.
    Your success (as I’ve followed it for over 3 years now) astounds me.
    I tap for success. 🙂

  3. karla says:

    Hey…I just want to say that before I was feeling frustated and now I see my mistake : I was doing the tapping (but ) without effort and of course it didn´t work (problem:really need to find someone). I was not being patient about tapping seriously. You see, it´s saturday night and I´m home just waiting for things to happen.That´s not right,is it? Oh well, now I´m taking it more seriously…really. Let´s see what happens!Best of everything to you from Brazil:)!

  4. pat says:

    Thank you, amazing empowerment.

  5. Frank Pereze says:

    This really helps out to let flow the law of attraction !

    Thank you Nick

  6. Mary Cosper says:

    This was a Great! It really helps to have a script to work with God Bless and Thank You!

  7. joe says:

    Oh Nick, you’re so great!

  8. Kim, Perth WA says:

    Thank you Nick,

    Right on queue, I needed this 🙂

  9. Suzy says:

    Thanks Nick. These are great ideas, I look forward to trying them. And a big thank you for organizing the Tapping Experience. I just finished the videos yesterday and noticed today that I am a different person out in the world – more present, less anxious, happier and more patient. And I still have a tonne of stuff to work on so world look out!

  10. LottieAnn Acebo says:

    Really, really amazing!!!!! I want to share to my children what tapping and EFT can do . Thanks for lot . I really do appreciate it.

  11. Ineke says:

    Thank you for putting out this guided script today. I have started the process of writing a book on ‘body techniques’. Things are moving much faster than I anticipated because of two persons who believe in my abilities. I am excited and scared at the same time. I need to tap on my ‘What ifs’, especially “What if I don’t live up to their expectations?” Thank you again!

  12. Elaine says:

    Thank you so much for this post. I especially appreciate the script example. This was exactly the topic I was going to work on today.

  13. Jill says:

    Hi, I can’t wait to try this. Could anyone help me…I am new. What does it mean when it says ‘rinse and repeat?” I don’t know what to do to “rinse” Thanks!

  14. Karielle says:

    Loved it. Helped me to be able to start doing this myself without the assistance of someone else and work through my challenges. I can also better explain it to others and help them do it too.
    Thank you. It’s a “3” now when it was a “10”.

  15. Jim Mulvey says:

    Once again, I would like to offer my appreciation for a guided script that is flexible enough to be used for a myriad of blocks and goals. I recently picked up a shortcut version from Lindsey Wagner. It was illuminating to see someone we perceive as a STAR using EFT. You’re the STAR, Nick. Thanks again for sharing another example of an every day Tapping Solution with us.

  16. Toni says:

    Wonderful script Nick. It helps so much to see it written out like that. Gives me ideas of how to use it with all kinds of problems. I appreciate all you do so much. You have been a great source of learning and growing for me. Thank you so much.

  17. Mary says:

    Thank you so much Nick… are a good man with a good heart. You take the time to help so many people with EFT and it is so appreciated. I know you will be rewarded for your efforts and I wish you many blessings.
    This script couldn’t have come at a better time, my hubby just lost his job today and we’re really stressed to say the least.

  18. Shelley Clunie says:

    I am tapping so when it works for me I can recommend EFT to others. So I set my goal to $100,000 per year as I feel it achievable sooner than $250,000. Wow! I felt guilty even typing that last figure! I’d better tap out the blockage and heaviness associated with guilt that I would either not think myself worthy of the last figure or that I erroniously felt it more humble (whatever I interpret that to be). I included tapping out resentment for people making those large figgures and admitted they have the right to their journey and all the money management skills needed. And that I was also willing to learn to be an excellent money manager.

  19. Una says:

    Today I had time to read your post – it’s just what I needed to “hear” and I want to thank you for giving the step by step examples in your script and letting me know when I write my thoughts and feelings down, not to worry about the exact wording which is usually a lengthy, time consuming (procrastination forming) exercise for me – finding the perfect words for expressing myself, which leads to avoidance and not focusing on what I want to do and achieve in my life and help others do in theirs.

  20. Greg says:

    Thanks Nick as I’ve been tapping to clear physical pains with great success but have never known how, or that I could, get what I want ! I look forward to using your script to see what results I can gain and accomplish, thanks !!

  21. Celiannie says:

    Hi Nick:
    Thanks a lot for this script of tapping. It is fabulous. You can have a print out and use it every
    time you need it. I appreciate your good will and efforts to help us achieve our goals. Even
    though (being sincere), I don’t have the time now to concentrate on it, due to the many situations I’m undergoing, but am always willing to learn and will cross the road with all your group who are so good and loving, giving their time and efforts to help each one of us. My goals are few but will start with one first which I know will be my success, counting with the will of God. Blessings to all

  22. D Makanda says:

    I do tapping for about 2 years now. I did purchase Gary CD material. I have tried several issues like having a lost friend for years (per say) giving me a call in less than two hours after tapping to say She miss me. I saw some other people comment saying it really work do you mean this specific script or previous experience? Great job Nick, you are allways helpful. By the way somebody knows how Gary is doing? Good wish to Him, blessing. D Makanda

  23. Anita Jefferson says:

    Re-write your mental script so that you eliminate your limits – this is one point that I learned from this article. Another learning light is to go deeper than surface feelings as you write and manage your life goals. My third education is from knowing the solution that helps to eliminate limits – tapping so that you are synchronized and aligned with whatever you desire.

    Thank you Nick for these simple, practical lessons. I will pass on this post. The script, modifiable to fit each specific blockage you had in the past, is genius.

  24. Jose Melo says:

  33. George says:

    I am interested in Tapping, but I don’t know where to start. Is there anyone in Central New Jersey who is trained and could help someone like me who has many issues, but is not sure where to begin?

  34. Flavy says:

    hi nick, hi all
    thanks for that very specific eft technique on manifesting goal quickly
    i am going to try it and give you back theresults i will get.

    here is my goal
    i want to produce natural herbal health teas for daily detox and strengh
    and other natural health products to sell it worldwide,
    but i don’t yet have any money to start that activity.
    i have no website, no factory, no farm to grow it in big quantities to reap it and transform it in factories;
    i only have my goal wich is my dream based on my passion.

    logically , i think i need financial assistance or
    a financial partner , and a technical partner to produce it in great quantities
    and i will also need commercial partners in each country
    to send the products to them in order for them to resell it to their local customers.
    i am curious to see what eft will give on that goal;
    thanks in advance,

  35. Genny says:

    I was feeling particularly stressed and as I did this exercise, it all melted away. Thank you.

  36. Angie says:

    Perfect timing for me. I’m taking a skills exam next weekend and have no confidence in myself about passing. Now I have something to work on for the next seven days to wipe out the fears and doubts! I’ll report the results next weekend! Thank you.

  37. Anne Koch says:

    Thank you Nick! Oh all the sessions on self improvement I find tapping the easiest and most helpful! Thank you for you continued classes. It looks to me like you really care about improving the world.

    Anne Koch

  38. Restless in Roosevelt says:

    I tried this and I am feeling strong and confident about my goal. I love how it went straight to the emotions, the tears flowed but so did the words I needed to say that describe the emotions surrounding this goal. Ahhh, I feel so good now.

  39. Kimberly says:

    I agree with Noni, I prefer written scripts, as I don’t usually have time to watch the videos- and this is such good information! Tapping has helped me in tons of areas- I’m so glad you’ve turned me onto it again!

  40. Tony says:

    I havent started yet but just read through it. But I am excited to start this process to help eliminate fear and anxiety about being heard. Thank you for this information. I will also use this on my clients to help them also. Thank you very much!

  41. GregOry Day says:

    This tapping is:-
    1. absolutely amazing – it DOES work, I have used it for a few months now.
    2. better than sliced bread, which I like to slice myself anyway.
    Please try iy. Nothing to loose, and lots to gain.

  42. Sandra says:

    Hi Nick! Thank you, thank you, thank you for yet another tool to help all Tappers deepen and improve on the Tapping experience. I love that I now have more clarity, greater specifics as to how to enhance my tapping….how to make it my own. I’ve been a bit too dependant on the Tap-A-Longs but now feel that I can easily put together my own scripts and create some truly awesome Tapping. Gracias!

  43. Regina Pirani says:

    Your example of $250,000 is exactly what I have been working on. I needed a little help with this and you have magically appeared. No real surprise.
    I thank you, thank you, thank you. I know I can do it now.
    I will let you know as soon as the money is received.

  44. sulistiyowati says:

    thank you so much for the lesson, bewfore i dont understand how to start tapping, it is really helpfull for me

  45. GregOry Day says:

    Absolutely amazing. I love Tapping and it has WORKED for me working through my bipolar issues to do with 1. My Emotions and 2. Achieving things I initially thought were too bloody hard.


  46. Elana says:

    This is the process I have been using for several months now to build my business, Academic Success For All. What has been working for me so far has been this: the flow of ideas is endless. I have so many things I want to do to build and sustain this business, that I hardly have time to read posts like this one (though reading a commenting is part of my business development strategy, so I make of point of doing so!).

    One of my challenges has been finding enough time in the day to actually act on all of the ideas that I have. But I am okay with that, as I use the time that I am not working on business development to do other things that I have identified as being necessary for me to have a fulfilling and satisfying life.

    So while I am still waiting for the clients to start rolling in, I am unbelievably not stressed about that. I wake up every day feeling inspired and happy to do the work I am doing, and I trust that eventually my work will reach the people who need to see it, and that my impact on the world will be all that it needs to be.

    I believe I owe all these feelings–of creativity, of trusting the process, of life fulfillment–to my having found EFT over 10 years ago. Back then, I had no idea that my having learned EFT would lead me to the place I am today. I am profoundly grateful, to Gary Craig, to Nick Ortner, and to every other EFT practitioner whose work has inspired and sustained me.

    Blessings to you all.

  47. Karen says:

    I am confident and strong in regards to my goal! Thank-you for the manifesting goals quickly technique.

  48. lene says:

    Hello, I’m pressed for time but have a real need for this stuff 🙂
    What about a youtube instruction of the same stuff?
    Or is there something similar that you can recommend?

  49. carol says:

    Hi Nick,
    This couldn’t have come at a more appropriate moment, as i try to re-invent my life in all ways. I’m leaving a relationship of 20 years and seeking to fulfil myself for the next few years working with sick children somehow, somewhere in the world where things aren’t as good as they are here .
    Thank you—this tapping script will be a very valuable tool for me in the next days/weeks/ months to come.

  50. Ian Carter says:

    This stuff really works. Well … I can’t say for sure about a quarter of a million a year, but the rest of it. Thanks for sharing this, Nick.
