That’s all it takes, 10 minutes a day…
to reduce your stress load and
increase your abundance!
If you could make this small commitment of tapping with EFT just 10 minutes a day, I am convinced your life would change. How? If you used tapping to clear past events, eliminate your current reactions to stress and dilute future worries, you’d be different “energetically” wouldn’t you? What kind of “different” you ask? Happier, calmer, less reactive, more creative — all good things!
If it’s so simple, why is it so difficult to do?
So what’s the big deal? Most of us say that we want to change, but the truth is, we’re not sure we want anything to be different! There are so many blocks to changing, and they always interfere with a commitment as simple as just 10 minutes a day.
Here’s what I know…
People who tap every day
become more successful!
Most of you reading this have had the exciting experience of getting results with tapping, otherwise, you probably wouldn’t “be” here. So you’ve had success, you know it works, you know combining EFT and Law of Attraction is profoundly effective, and yet, you “forget” to tap, skip it for a few days, neglect your mental health… so there must be a reason to *not* take care of yourself. This brings us to the “yes, but” section of my newsletter :-)
Here are some typical “yes, buts” I find in myself and workshop participants regarding doing daily tapping:
(1) I’m afraid to do what’s good for me, it might work…
What this tells us is that we are all a little bit afraid of changing, even for the better. What if it does work (and we already know that tapping does work…)? What feels threatening about changing? What are you afraid of if you change?
(2) I don’t want to spend the time doing the tapping every day.
Why not? Spending 10 minutes a day tapping on fears, hurts, anxiety or guilt would yield incredible results in a very short amount of time! That’s been my experience for nearly 13 years. Is it possible you don’t think you’re worth spending the time? Or does it go back to the fear of changing…
(3) What if I don’t recognize myself with all the changes I make by tapping?
This is the classic “identity” issue and fear — if you change too much, you might feel out of balance or disoriented. In my experience, we never change that dramatically without the emotional strength to handle it! But this is a wonderful “tappable issue” of course…
(4) What if changing significantly rocks the boat in my family?
Sure, changing could and may well rock the boat in your family, which means the family dynamics will change or at least be a bit off balance. This is again a “tappable issue.”
(5) I don’t want others to have too many expectations if I do change by doing my tapping.
Why not? What’s wrong with others having expectations? You don’t have to manage anyone else’s expectations, just your own! “Even though I’m afraid of their expectations…”
(6) I don’t know how I will maintain the changes…
OK, this can be challenging, but not if you’ve gotten to the core issue. When you truly knock down the reasons you were sticking to old behavior, there’s no need to “maintain” the change — it’s maintained naturally by the new energetic patterns inside of you. “Even though I’m afraid it will be too much work to maintain the changes I make…”
(7) I’m scared of what I might uncover if I tap by myself.
If this is the case, first tap on this fear, then consult an EFT practitioner in your area who has lots of experience!
I am sure that at least one of the above reasons resonates with you. Are you holding yourself back because of any of these “yes, buts” or levels of resistance? If so, they are all tappable issues with EFT/Meridian Tapping.
The question we all need to ask ourselves is,
Why aren’t you already doing your
daily tapping for simple stress relief?
If you don’t want to get into “deep” issues from the past, that’s understandable. If you are afraid to let go of some conflicts you have been using to keep people away, that’s common. But tapping on daily stress issues is a simple request to make of yourself and your time.
What about those annoying emails that come in…. tap while you read them, tap and tap until they are no longer “annoying” to you!
What about the traffic jams that are bound to make you late… tap and tap until your energy changes and watch what happens with the traffic!
What about issues with the kids? Are you tapping before you yell at them? Are you tapping before barking at their teachers? Tapping before you say “stop whining…”
What about issues in your other primary relationships? I have made it a habit to tap *before* I pick up the telephone so I am totally present emotionally before I ask someone for something, inquire about an issue or talk about something challenging with my loved ones.
Sometimes it is challenging to read the above statements and uncover your blocks, so see if any of the questions below help you uncover what’s blocking you from tapping on a daily basis.
(1) What’s the “downside” to reducing your stress?
(2) Does it feel “unsafe” to feel more calm and centered?
(3) Are you more comfortable with the drama in your life?
(4) Are you afraid to be too powerful if you release the stress?
(5) How does staying the way you are “serve” you?
The most powerful question from the above list is:
How does staying the way you
are “serve” you?
Maybe you don’t believe that staying “the same” is serving you, but it must be, or else you would be committed, even inspired to change.
It’s your choice…
