I know it’s hard to Get Back in Gear once you’ve been in neutral for a while. Sometimes being in neutral is even good for you if you’ve been running around too much and being too busy. Several people on the Coaching Call this week admitted that being too busy was “working” for them to avoid standing out and shining. Of course I understand that being and staying in “neutral” can serve you too…

  • What is it doing for you?
  • Why haven’t you gotten back into gear?
  • What is the “upside” to staying in neutral?
  • Did you burn yourself out?

Sometimes we’re afraid to Get Back in Gear. Sometimes we fear other people’s reactions. Maybe it seems like too much work. What is your reason for disengaging and staying in neutral too long? Why have you been “coasting” in your personal or professional life? I’m not talking about taking a needed break, or resting – that’s always a good idea. I’m talking about staying in neutral too long, past its usefulness…

Other emotions besides fear can trigger us as well – are you resentful? Sad? Exhausted? Stressed out? Hurt? There are a million reasons why we choose to stay in neutral rather than putting ourselves back in gear. I’m the first to acknowledge that most of us are too busy. But not doing anything… that’s a symptom of an emotional conflict.

Good thing we have EFT/tapping to release the conflict and move us forward!

What can you tap on?

  • Tap on the emotion (I’m afraid to move forward…)
  • Tap on the conflict (I’m not sure whether I should or shouldn’t), or…
  • Tap on the belief (I won’t get anywhere anyway, so why bother…)

As the cliche goes… today is the first day of the rest of your life. It happens to be true. So I invite you to Get Back in Gear and enjoy your life!

Our thoughts, feelings and behaviors carry energy…

Our vibration matters!

When you are willing to Get Back in Gear you will be able to watch how abundance starts showing up for you. When you are moving your energy, releasing your feelings, and eliminating your beliefs, the Universe will support you in new and surprising ways by opening up new channels of abundance.

Below you will find EFT/Tapping setup phrases to help you be inspired to release your blocks to being able to attract what you want into your life.

When you change your vibration,
you will change your life.
