        I choose to investigate how I reacted in accordance with this pattern to four of the losses that I described in task 10, and four incidents where I did not react with sorrow to the loss I thought I had incurred.

        17) At which times and in which ways do I behave in similar ways as I have attributed above to the devil,

        Satan and an evil person, and what feelings do I have when I behave in that way?

        TASKS FOR WORKING STEP SIX

        First we chose to begin making ourselves entirely ready to allow our Higher Power to liberate us from the pain in our defects of character by learning to consciously move from the Rings of Pain to the Rings of Joy.

        We did this by first moving mentally and emotionally and then we moved energy wise or energetically by the help of EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique, popularly known as tapping – that has sprung from acupressure which is a milder form of acupuncture, which is a 3-4,000 year old Chinese technique used to prevent illnesses or to treat illnesses that are erupting whether these illnesses are of a physically, energetically, emotionally, mentally, socially or spiritually nature, by working with the body’s energy pathways called meridians.

        There are many meridians, and therefore there are many tapping points in different Tapping Protocols that I can choose to research on the internet anytime I want to, but at this time I choose to use the following meridian points for my tapping.

        Task 1.

        THE RING OF EMPTINESS-THE RING OF FULFILLMENT.

        If I want a more detailed description of how I can solve this task, I choose to use the suggestion from the book Sixth Step Analyzed for members of Active Addictions Anonymous – The Wild Life

        I describe a situation from the day, where I used

        1. Emptiness

        2. Boredom

        3. Meaninglessness

        4.  Loneliness

        Today I used The Ring of Emptiness, because

        I write down how making use of The Ring of Emptiness made me think, feel, act and relate to others in about the situation.

        Emptiness:
        1. I thought that

        4. I related to others in the situation by

        Furthermore, I write down what it was that I hoped to achieve by using this Ring, and if I achieved it.

        I hoped to achieve that

        Then, I describe how I believe the situation could have transpired if instead I had used

        The Ring of Fulfilment with its

        1. Fulfilment

        2. Interest

        3. Meaningfulness

        4. Oneness

        I believe that if instead I had used The Ring of Fulfilment on , then , because

        Furthermore, I write down how I believe that my use of The Ring of Fulfilment would have made me think, feel, act and relate to others in the situation.

        Fulfillment:

        Furthermore, I write down, if I believe it would be easier for me to achieve what I want by using this Ring and why.

        CONTENTS

        I believe that if instead I had used The Ring of Fulfilment on , then , because

        After having moved mentally and emotionally from The Ring of Emptiness to The Ring of Fulfilment in this way, I choose to move energetically between the two Rings as described below by first inserting my answers in the tapping protocol and then I finish my Six Step analyses by tapping through the protocol that I have written.

        I begin with:

        The Ring of Emptiness with its:

        1. Emptiness

        2. Boredom

        3. Meaninglessness

        4.  Loneliness

        First I take a deep breath and then I feel how the intensity of my pain is by being in the The Ring of Emptiness on a scale from 0-10.

        The pain is at

        I then choose to tap as suggested below on the topic that I have used the The Ring of Emptiness on today.

        Task 2.

        .THE RING OF SELF-CENTEREDNESS-THE RING OF GOD-CENTEREDNESS

        If I want a more detailed description of how I can solve this task, I choose to use the suggestion from the book Sixth Step Analyzed for members of Active Addictions Anonymous – The Wild Life

        After I have completed task 1, I describe a situation from the day where I used

        The Ring of Self-centeredness with its:

        1. Euphoria

        2. Depression

        3. Self-criticism

        4. Self-praise

        Today I used The Ring of Self-centeredness, because

        I write down how making use of The Ring of Self-centeredness made me think, feel, act and relate to others in the situation.

        Euphoria:
        1. I thought that
        2. I felt that
        3. I acted by
        4. I related to others in the situation by

        Depression:
        1. I thought that
        2. I felt that
        3. I acted by
        4. I related to others in the situation by

        Self-criticism:
        1. I thought that
        2. I felt that
        3. I acted by

        Self-praise:
        1. I thought that
        2. I felt that
        3. I acted by
        4. I related to others in the situation by

        Furthermore, I write down what it was that I empowerment to achieve by using this Ring, and if I achieved it.

        I empowerment to achieve that

        Then, I describe how I believe the situation could have transpired if instead I had used the corresponding Ring of Joy, which is:

        The Ring of God-centeredness with its

        1. Joy

        2. Empowerment

        3. Open-mindedness

        4. Gratitude

        I believe that if instead I had used the Ring of God-centeredness, then

        Besides that, I write down how I believe that my use of The Ring of God-centeredness would have made me think, feel, act and relate to others in the situation.

        Joy:
        1. I believe that I would think that
        2. I believe that I would feel that
        3. I believe that I would act by
        4. I believe that I would relate to others in the situation by

        Empowerment:
        1. I believe that I would think that
        2. I believe that I would feel that
        3. I believe that I would act by
        4. I believe that I would relate to others in the situation by

        Open-mindedness:
        1. I believe that I would think that
        2. I believe that I would feel that
        3. I believe that I would act by
        4. I believe that I would relate to others in the situation by

        Gratitude:
        1. I believe that I would think that
        2. I believe that I would feel thaT
        3. I believe that I would act by
        4. I believe that I would relate to others in the situation by

        In the end, I write down, if I believe it would be easier for me to achieve what I wanted by using this Ring and why.

        I believe that if instead I had used The Ring of God-centeredness on , then , because

        After having moved mentally and emotionally between The Ring of Self-centeredness and the Ring of God-centeredness in this way, I choose to move energetically between the two Rings as described below by first inserting my answers in the tapping protocol and then I finish my Six Step analyses by tapping through the protocol that I have written.

        Task 4.

        THE BIG RING OF PAIN -THE BIG RING OF JOY 

        If I want a more detailed description of how I can solve this task, I choose to use the suggestion from the book Sixth Step Analyzed for members of Active Addictions Anonymous – The Wild Life

        After I have completed task 3, I describe a situation from the day where I used

        The Big Ring of Pain with its:

        1. Avarice

        2. Envy

        3. Hatred

        4. Arrogance

        Today I used The Big Ring of Pain, because

        I write down how making use of The Big Ring of Pain made me think, feel, act and relate to others in the situation.

        CONTENTS

        Avarice:
        1. I thought that
        2. I felt that
        3. I acted by

        3. I acted by
        4. I related to others in the situation byFurthermore
        ,
        I write down what it was that I hoped to achieve by using this Ring, and if I achieved it.

        I hoped to achieve that

        Then, I describe how I believe the situation could have transpired if instead I had used the corresponding Ring of Joy, which is:

        The Big Ring of Joy with its

        1. Faith

        2. Hope

        3. Love

        4. Truth

        I believe that if instead I had used The Big Ring of Joy on , then , because

        Besides that, I write down how I believe that my use of The Big Ring of Joy would have made me think, feel, act and relate to others in the situation.

        Faith:
        1. I believe that I would think that
        2. I believe that I would feel that
        3. I believe that I would act by
        4. I believe that I would relate to others in the situation by

        Hope:
        1. I believe that I would think that
        2. I believe that I would feel that

        2. I believe that I would feel that
        3. I believe that I would act by
        4. I believe that I would relate to others in the situation by

        In the end, I write down, if I believe it would be easier for me to achieve what I wanted by using this Ring and why.

        I believe that if instead I had used The Big Ring of Joy on , then , because

        After having moved mentally and emotionally between The Big Ring of Pain and the Big Ring of Joy in this way, I choose to move energetically between the two Rings as described below by first inserting my answers in the tapping protocol and then I finish my Six Step analyses by tapping through the protocol that I have written.

        I begin with:

        The Big Ring of Pain with its:

        1. Avarice

        2. Envy

        3. Hatred

        4. Arrogance

        First, I take a deep breath and I sense how the intensity of my pain is by being in The Big Ring of Pain on a scale from 0-10.

        The pain is at

        I then choose to tap as suggested below on the topic that I have used The Big Ring of Pain on today.

        I choose to do task 5 minimum once.
         

        Task 5b:

        If I want a more detailed description of how I can solve this task, I choose to use the suggestion from the book Sixth Step Analyzed for members of Active Addictions Anonymous – The Wild Life

        If I choose to move from the Small Ring of Envy to the Small Ring of Hope I choose to use the format below for my analyses.

        1. Disbelief

        2. Superstition

        3. Submission

        4. Defiance

        Today I used The Small Ring of Envy, because

        Furthermore, I write down what it was that I hoped to achieve by using this Ring, and if I achieved it.

        I hoped to achieve that

        Then, I describe how I believe the situation could have transpired if instead I had used the corresponding Ring of Joy, which is:

        The Small Ring of Hope with its

        1. Credence

        2. Information

        3. Discernment

        4. Serenity

        I believe that if instead I had used The Small Ring of Hope on , then , because

        Besides that, I write down how I believe that my use of The Small Ring of Hope would have made me think, feel, act and relate to others in the situation.

        In the end, I write down, if I believe it would be easier for me to achieve what I wanted by using this Ring and why.

        I believe that if instead I had used The Small Ring of Hope on , then , because

        After having moved mentally and emotionally between The Small Ring of Envy and the Small Ring of Hope in this way, I choose to move energetically between the two Rings as described below by first inserting my answers in the tapping protocol and then I finish my Six Step analyses by tapping through the protocol that I have written.

        In the end, I write down, if I believe it would be easier for me to achieve what I wanted by using this Ring and why.

        I believe that if instead I had used The Small Ring of Truth on , then , because

        After having moved mentally and emotionally between The Small Ring of Arrogance and the Small Ring of Truth in this way, I choose to move energetically between the two Rings as described below by first inserting my answers in the tapping protocol and then I finish my Six Step analyses by tapping through the protocol that I have written.

        I begin with:

        The Small Ring of Arrogance with its:

        1. Superiority

        2. Inferiority

        3. Overcrowding

        4. Defiance

        First, I take a deep breath and I sense how the intensity of my pain is by being in The Small Ring of Arrogance on a scale from 0-10.

        The pain is at

        I then choose to tap as suggested below on the topic that I have used The Small Ring of Arrogance on today.

        Task 6.

        FROM ADDICTION TO CHRONIC DISSATISFACTION TO CONTENTMENT

        If I want a more detailed description of how I can solve this task, I choose to use the suggestion from the book Sixth Step Analyzed for members of Active Addictions Anonymous – The Wild Life.

        When I have completed task 5, I describe a situation from the day where I used addiction to chronic dissatisfaction and how I can move to contentment in a similar situation in the future:

        Addiction to chronic dissatisfaction – Contentment.

        Today I used my
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my

        a.    Limitation
        b.    Ignorance
        c.    Powerlessness
        d.    Mortality/Changeability

        Today I used my addiction to chronic dissatisfaction, because

        I write down how making use of my
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction made me think, feel, act and relate to others in the situation.

        Limitation:
        1. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my limitation made me think that
        2. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my limitation made me feel that
        3. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my limitation made me act by
        4. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my limitation made me think relate to others in the situation by

        Ignorance:
        1. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my ignorance made me think that
        2. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my ignorance made me feel that
        3. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my ignorance made me act by
        4. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my ignorance made me think relate to others in the situation by

        Powerlessness:
        1. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my powerlessness made me think that
        2. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my powerlessness made me feel that
        3. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my powerlessness made me act by
        4. My addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my
        powerlessness made me think relate to others in the situation by

        Mortality/changeability:
        1. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my mortality/changeability made me think that
        2. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my mortality/changeability made me feel that
        3. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my mortality/changeability made me act by
        4. My
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction with my mortality/changeability made me think relate to others in the situation by

        Furthermore, I write down what it was that I hoped to achieve by using my
        addiction to chronic dissatisfaction, and if I achieved it.

        I hoped to achieve that

        Then, I describe how I believe the situation could have transpired if instead I had used contentment with my humanness:

        C
        ontentment with my:
         
        a.    Limitation
        b.    Ignorance
        c.    Powerlessness
        d.    Mortality/Changeability


        I believe that if instead I had used contentment on my human limitation, ignorance, powerlessness and mortality/changeability, then , because 

        Besides that, I write down how I believe that my use of
        contentment could have made me think, feel, act and relate to others in the situation.

        Limitation:
        1. I believe that I would think that
        2. I believe that I would feel that
        3. I believe that I would act by
        4. I believe that I would relate to the other/others in the situation by

        Mortality/Changeability:
        1. I believe that I would think that
        2. I believe that I would feel that
        3. I believe that I would act by
        4. I believe that I would relate to the other/others in the situation by

        In the end, I write down, if I believe it would be easier for me to achieve what I wanted by using
        contentment and why.

        I believe that if instead I had used
        contentment on , then , because

        After having moved mentally, emotionally and socially from my addiction to chronic dissatisfaction to
        contentment in this way, I choose to move energetically from my addiction to chronic dissatisfaction to contentment as described below by first inserting my answers in the tapping protocol and then I finish my Six Step analyses by tapping through the protocol that I have written.

        I begin with my:

        Task 7.

        I choose to carry out minimum one inventory with one set of The Four Minirings.

        Task 7a:

        If I want a more detailed description of how I can solve this task, I choose to use the suggestion from the book Sixth Step Analyzed for members of Active Addictions Anonymous – The Wild Life.

        If I choose to move from the Miniring of Avarice to the Miniring of Faith I choose to use the format below for my analyses.

        THE MINIRING OF AVARICE-THE MINIRING OF FAITH

        The Mini-ring of Avarice with its:

        1. Pettiness

        2. Clinging

        3. Malaise

        4. Hoarding

        Today I used The Mini-ring of Avarice, because

        I write down how making use of The Mini-ring of Avarice made me think, feel, act and relate to others in the situation.

        Pettiness:
        1. I thought that
        2. I felt that
        3. I acted by
        4. I related to others in the situation by

        2. I felt that
        3. I acted by

        2. I felt that
        3. I acted by
        4. I related to others in the situation by

        Furthermore, I write down what it was that I hoped to achieve by using this Ring, and if I achieved it.

        I hoped to achieve that

        Then, I describe how I believe the situation could have transpired if instead I had used the corresponding Ring of Joy, which is:

        The Mini-ring of Faith with its

        1. Largesse

        2. Letting go

        3. Wellbeing

        4. Sharing

        In the end, I write down, if I believe it would be easier for me to achieve what I wanted by using this Ring and why.

        I believe that if instead I had used The Mini-ring of Faith on, then , because

        After having moved mentally and emotionally between The Mini-ring of Avarice and the Mini-ring of Faith in this way, I choose to move energetically between the two Rings as described below by first inserting my answers in the tapping protocol and then I finish my Six Step analyses by tapping through the protocol that I have written.

        I begin with:

        The Mini-ring of Avarice with its:

        1. Pettiness

        2. Clinging

        3. Malaise

        4. Hoarding

        First, I take a deep breath and I sense how the intensity of my pain is by being in The Mini-ring of Avarice on a scale from 0-10.

        The pain is at

        I then choose to tap as suggested below on the topic that I have used The Mini-ring of Avarice on today.

        The four setup statements for the two tapping rounds below:

        1.      KC

        a.      KC left: Even though I chose to use The Mini-ring of Avarice today by using pettiness to , I completely and totally love, accept and forgive myself for being exactly the way I am, because , and I also completely and totally love, accept and forgive The Mini-ring of Avarice for being exactly the way it is, because , and I also completely and totally love, accept and forgive the pain for being exactly the way it is, because

        9.      TH: My hoarding makes me think that

        Then I take a deep breath and sense how the intensity of my pain is on a scale of 0-10.

        The pain is at

        And I choose to continue to tap as suggested below.

        1.      EB: Maybe I could open up to let go of my pettiness if

        2.      SE: Then I could also let go of my clinging by

        3.      UE: If I did that I might no longer need to hold on to my malaise, which

        4.      UN: Then I could also let go of my hoarding by

        6.      CB: Yes, actually, I begin to believe that I can let go of both my malaise and my clinging, because

        7.      UA: Now, I open myself completely to let go of The Mini-ring of Avarice because

        8.      TH: I now feel entirely ready to allow my Higher Power to liberate me from The Mini-ring of Avarice and thereby from using pettiness, clinging, malaise and hoarding in relation to myself and others, because

        Then I take a deep breath and sense how the intensity of my pain is now on a scale of 0-10.

        The pain is at

        I continue my tapping rounds until my pain of being in The Mini-ring of Avarice is tapped down to minimum half of the number, which I gave the intensity of the original pain, and preferably a number that is even smaller, before I choose to go on tapping as suggested below on the corresponding Ring of Joy, which is:

        Task 7b:

        If I want a more detailed description of how I can solve this task, I choose to use the suggestion from the book Sixth Step Analyzed for members of Active Addictions Anonymous – The Wild Life.

        If I choose to move from the Miniring of Envy to the Miniring of Hope I choose to use the format below for my analyses.

        THE MINIRING OF ENVY-THE MINIRING OF HOPE

        The Miniring of Envy with its:

        1. Insecurity

        2. Confusion

        3. Unclearity

        4. Wretchedness

        Today I used The Miniring of Envy, because

        I write down how making use of The Miniring of Envy made me think, feel, act and relate to others in the situation.

        Insecurity:

        Furthermore, I write down what it was that I hoped to achieve by using this Ring, and if I achieved it.

        I hoped to achieve that

        CONTENTS

        Then, I describe how I believe the situation could have transpired if instead I had used the corresponding Ring of Joy, which is:

        The Miniring of Hope with its

        1. Safety

        2. Well-informedness

        3. Clarity

        4. Nobleness

        I believe that if instead I had used The Miniring of Hope on , then , because  

        Besides that, I write down how I believe that my use of The Miniring of Hope would have made me think, feel, act and relate to others in the situation.

        In the end, I write down, if I believe it would be easier for me to achieve what I wanted by using this Ring and why.
