The Road Less Traveled By (EFT script)

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

~ Robert Frost

Have you ever felt out of place or ahead of your times?  Have you been called to explore new, unknown terrains but felt challenged by circumstances and others around you?  Path-breaking journeys often include a lot of emotional conflict and strife that may or may not be apparent externally.  But if you are struggling between honoring your inner voice and seeking the approval and support from your community, perhaps this EFT script will be useful for you.

The following assumes that you are familiar with Emotional Freedom Techniques.   You can refer to the one pager to get started and if you find it helpful, you can always find more material on the net.  For a more thorough understanding, you may want to get hold of my book ‘Emotional Freedom Techniques’.


Karate Chop:      Even though I feel alone, drawn to a different paradigm

Eyebrow:            And others seem to find me lost, searching all the time

Side of the Eye:    I know I have a new road to carve

Under the Eye:     A new way to be

Under the Nose:  If I feel like I don’t belong here

Chin:                    That is because that is the way

Collarbone:           It is supposed to be

Under the Arm:    To bring about radical change

Top of the Head:   From old patterns one has to break free


Karate Chop:      Even though I am sometimes tired, frustrated and confused

Eyebrow:             In my heart of hearts I know very well

Side of the Eye:    My inner voice speaks my truth

Under the Eye:     All my need for understanding and approval

Under the Nose:  From others I can release

Chin:                     I now choose to focus instead

Collarbone:           On my own choices, actions and being

Under the Arm:     If I want to transform the world

Top of the Head:   All change begins with me


Karate Chop:         As I love and approve of myself

Eyebrow:               I am centred and strong

Side of the Eye:    Fully capable of delivering my best

Under the eye:       Singing my own song

Under the Nose:   “Fitting in”, or “feeling safe”

Chin:                      May not be my cup of tea

Collar Bone:          If I am here to show the way

Under the Arm:     New, unknown terrains and

Top of the Head:   A different way of being await me


Karate Chop:         I give myself permission to be different

Eyebrow:               To not be swayed by praise or blame

Side of the Eye:     To be kind and patient with others

Under the Eye:       Treating myself the same

Under the Nose:     If ever I should feel pained again

Chin:                       I will remind myself of who I AM

Collarbone:             Stay anchored in the now

Under the Arm:      Accepting that transformation

Top of the Head:    Has to break the existing norms

Please try repeating the above routine two-three times, rest a few minutes and drink some water.  Then notice how you feel.  Please do share your feedback.

All good wishes!

  1. Beautiful, Sangeeta. Deep resonance. Woke up disturbed as it happens often. And received this blessed script. Thank you so much. Thank you.

    I revisited one of my Gene Keys- no 8. You must read this one. This moves from the Shadow of Mediocrity to the Gift of Style (a rebel with a cause) to the Siddhi of Exquisiteness. Incidentally same as NS’s also!
    He (Richard Rudd) says in his amazing book, “Gene Keys”:
    ” ‘Style’ is more than skin deep. It is the cutting edge of creation itself.
    Style is dangerous to society and its logical system-based thinking and infrastructure. It is dangerous because it mimics nature, which so many systems try to control and explain. Like nature, style is given shape by a wild, organic, unpredictable energy. It is full of genius and quantum leaps.”

    Further on, he says..
    “These people are not leaders. They are examples. They do not want anyone to follow or mimic them. They are not limited to any single form of expression but will play with science or art or tantra, logic or poetry, since to them all expressions can be a means to display the exquisiteness of the Divine in form. To the person immersed in the blissfulness of the 8th Siddhi, all life is absolutely clear. This clarity moreover is paradoxically found in the very uncertainty and wildness of life. These people leave no tracks for others to follow. They know life as a rush of contradictions and mysteries never designed to be solved.”

    What say?

  2. Reblogged this on Let's CoEvolve ! and commented:
    I love Sangeeta’s writing and wisdom.
    This post particularly resonated with my being and also helped me clear up ‘thoughts and feelings’ that were coming in the way of seeing and being the truth. Enjoy and also see the comment I have shared.

  3. Lovely . I like the last line , ”They know life as a rush of contradictions and mysteries never designed to be solved.” so much. Life is just to be lived and loved , however it is !
