Here is the template summary:

Each step of this simple and effective 3-part Tapping Template for Anger and Frustration begins with two words. Those are: I feel… I wonder… I choose.

While you're learning to apply this template, choose a situation with a SUDs charge between 3 and 7. After you've applied the template to two or three lower charged issues, you can then apply it to issues with higher SUDs levels.

Bring to mind the situation you're choosing to work with.

Identify your stress response level on the 0 to 10 Subjective Units of Distress (SUDs) scale. Alternatively, use Low, Medium, or High sense of stress. Ask yourself, ”In this moment, what is the SUDs charge on this situation?".

Verbalize Honestly About What You’re Feeling! When working with chosen issues, don't censor what you say. Be an observer as you allow the words to flow. If curse words come out, let them come out. This is especially important when you're in the, "I feel…" step of the template.

Remember, the template is, I feel… I wonder… I choose…

Yawn, Sigh, Stretch: Begin with a really good Yawn, Sigh, and Stretch.

Step 1: I feel…

Tap the Karate Chop point (side of hand) as you give voice to what you’re feeling about the chosen situation.

Example: ”I feel so angry, so frustrated about ________________ ! Give voice to what you’re feeling in your own words.

Reminder phrases: Use short reminder phrases as you tap around the points. Example:

Side of eye: “This is so unfair!” (use your own short reminder statements).
Under eye: "So unfair!"
Under nose: "So, so unfair!"
Under lip: "Unfair!"
Collarbone: "So, so, so unfair!"
Underarm or remain at the collarbone point, your choice: "Unfair!"
Crown point: "So unfair!”

Hands over heart: Place hands to heart, right hand over left or left over right, either is fine and allow three comfortable in and out breaths.

Step 2: I wonder…

Tap the Karate Chop point and give voice to questions about the situation.

Examples: ”I wonder why he said those awful things?. I wonder what got into him?”.
Insert your own, "I wonder….?”  setup statement about your situation.

Reminder phrases: Tap the other points (see above - “Under eye, etc.) and voice short reminder phrases beginning with, “I wonder _______”. Example: “I wonder what got into him?.”

Hands over heart: Place hands to heart, right hand over left or left over right, either is fine and allow three comfortable in and out breaths.

Step 3: I choose…

Tap the Karate Chop point and give voice to what you are now choosing to feel, understand, and do ongoing.

Examples: ”I choose to know he has the problem. I choose to know I may never figure out why he behaved that way, but it doesn't matter. I choose to recognize I can only control my own behavior. I choose to maintain a sense of acceptance of what is as I release my reactions to his behavior and allow my sense of emotional balance and wellbeing to guide my thinking and feelings ongoing. I choose to be calm and confident.

Insert your own, "I choose…" statements about your chosen situation.

Reminder phrases: Tap the other points (see above - “Under eye, etc.) with short “I choose….” reminder phrases such as, “Calm and confident!”.

Hands over Heart: Place hands to heart, right hand over left or left over right, either is fine and allow three comfortable in and out breaths.

On the third out breath, say, "Peace and release” and do another, Yawn, Sigh, and Stretch.

Check SUDs level and repeat if needed. Check to identify if one or more new aspects emerged and tap accordingly.
