Tap, tap, tap, what are we to do when friends and relatives speak a litany of illnesses and tests?  Yes, exactly that, tap, tap, tap on those Chinese acupuncture points as you listen with your whole heart and soul and every ounce of your spirit.

No lengthy comments are needed.  Just do an active listening murmur every so often, “Ahh ha,” or “I hear you,” or even “What a pity.”

Compassion is great and highly recommended.  Beware, however, you do not need to take on that person’s complaint or illness or allow your empathy to run wild.  Use energy mathematics and tap while hearing the list of malaise.  Know that tapping keeps your own cortisol level lower and so you feel free to listen, without a reaction, without taking on that person’s emotional state.  And, great news, listening has not been called a source of contagion!

Also, why not do energy preventive measures?  If you know each day you call them with a sincere wish to send that person love and concern, then prepare yourself.  Keep yourself centered and grounded.

Centering may be as easy as raising your arms high over head and bringing them down and around your body to visualize your arms resting securely in the deep earth.  And visualize a white light, or whatever color you may feel safe in, around your entire body.   That protective bubble exists all day and all night.  Know and visualize that any negative words or thoughts or feelings from another will be blocked.  Those negativities will be bounced right back to the sender tout de suite.

Enjoy your listening skills that will become stronger and stronger with this practice.

Thank you, Gandhi!
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Thank you, Mahatma Gandhi.

What are some things I be the change for better in this world?

People complaining about illness all the time.

People who feel once they become 40, or 50, or 60 or 70 or 80, life is over and not much remains to be enjoyed.

Babies who are not loved and touched kindly and affectionately.

Adults who are not loved and touched kindly and affectionately.

People who fear other nationalities or credes.

Here are some potential solutions:

I plan to keep discomfort and bitching and gossiping to a minimum. I’ll tap while complaining or bitching and fill myself energetically with relief, peace, and joy.

I plan to keep active and energetic by doing some exercise each day and volunteering for as long as possible.

I plan to keep teaching workshops on tapping so each adult knows of self love; foster love, kindness, and affection to rule in each energetic being.

I’ll encourage and spend time and money on movies and tv shows that focus on cooperation between nationalities

Tell me:

What change do you feel you can be that will improve what you see happening in this world of ours?

Tapping today with friends at Ukraine Window on America English Club.  We discussed anger and its forms.  We also discussed where anger appears in our bodies.  Also how do we know we are angry?  Especially since we are told by our parents and our teachers and our religious leaders as children that anger is not appropriate, how do we know we are angry?

And, consider, do we want to reach our death beds with all of these angers remaining blocked in our energetic and physical systems?  Especially since you know tapping can help lessen both the intesity and the prolonged duration of anger, why not try it?  Tapping works even if you do not believe in it.

And once we know we are angry, how may we open up any blockages in our body and mind and soul that are frozen in anger?

How do we find where we have “stuffed that anger?”

LISTEN:

Anger could be hidden behind your words such as “irritation” or “frustration” or “annoyance” or even “my pet peeve.”  When you say, “I feel annoyed…..,” pay attention and see what you are experiencing in your body and mind.  Write down any such annoyances or irritations in a small notebook and tap on them when you have time.

So today listen to yourself.

FEEL:

Anger may be hidden behind some pain or discomfort in your body.  Scan your body now.  Is there discomfort or pain?  Rate how high it is now on a scale of “0” bein no pain, to “10” being an excruciating pain that will not lessen.

Write the level of pain down in your notebook.  Then, tap fully on the discomfort or pain.  Tap to lessen that pain or discomfort to a “0” or a “1.”  Be aware that other stories might come up as you tap.  Write these stories down for a later tapping session.

As always, we may do tapping secretly, so no one near us knows what we are doing.  Tapping will still help us lessen that anger that is showing up.  And tapping is very efective at lessening that pain or discomfort we feel n our bodies.

SUGGESTION:  In the evening before sleep, take a few minutes to think of anything or any body who annoyed you today.  Tap to lessen that sense of annoyance or irritation.

In the morning, what is on your mind as you first wake up?  If any annoyance or irritation at something or some body appears, then tap for a minute or two so you can lessen that impact.

Tell me how you feel and if your sense of anger/irritation/annoyance/frustration/pet peeve have been lowered?

Wow, I know in working with tapping of your Chinese acupuncture points, there is much to be gained by looking at all modalities. What color is this? What shape? What does this problem remind you of?

And, to be gaining more knowledge about a person’s concern or problem, I often ask about what songs a person hears while tapping or while remembering their younger days.

Guess my surprise? This morning I woke and am doing the Donna Eden energy exercises (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gffKhttrRw4 if you haven’t learned them yet). when I listen to myself and hear the song I am singing with gusto during these energy exercises.

It is the song called, “Que Sera Sera,” and made famous by Doris Day. It is a sugary song; a song that indicates that life brings you whatever and that “whatever” is totally outside of your control. This song fails to be a good example of people taking any responsibility for their lives. Instead, this song admits that “What will be, will be,” and we as humans have no input into our lives.

What a funny and yet worthwile revelation to me of that inner dialogue shown in songs I sing. The song is totally at odds with all I profess and have come to beleive over the years. I know I DO change what happens in my life; I know how my heart’s messages get transmitted so easily and broadly.

So, listen to your songs that you hum as you tap or even that you sing or hum as you go about your day…

What do your songs reveal? Are they songs that show the real you? Are they songs that you might want to tap on for some relief from old beliefs?

All the BEST! Tell me if you are listening now to your own song or to a song that needs updating to the real YOU?

Ahh, tapping makes one so aware of how I feel and also how I are relating to other people.  So, an ahh-haa moment from a recent tapping episode about an irritation I had had:

Wait!  I am affecting how others talk and relate to me and even feel about me.  If I want to improve this, I am the main mover who can work on changing this.

So, instead of showing and sending angry or irritated or critical thoughts out, I concentrate on sending out thoughts and feelings like these:

WE are safe;

WE are accepted;

WE are free of fear;

WE are love;

We are unconditionally loved.

Already i feel that lightness in my body that says this works.   It amazes me even more when I am holding hands with someone and I do the same thing, POWERFUL!  I know I work on my own issues with tapping of Chinese acupuncture points, yet what a joy to know my vibrational messages can and do make a difference.

Please tell me if you have this feeling also?

Now, how to make this accomplish more and do more for all people in the world whether Protestant or Muslim or Jewish or Catholic or Buddhist or Agnostic or Atheist or ?

Recently I had visited Ukraine again with my partner. We flew in during the week September 11 to September 18th. It was an interesting trip. So now that we have delivered your Letter of Hope to our friends in Peace Corps and our friends in Vinnytsia, I feel I must express my feelings.

It was my first experience in traveling to a war-torn country, and I admit I was not sure what to expect. I enrolled with both the UK and US Embassies to let them know where we would be staying. Yet also I concentrated on sending love to all parties involved, and most especially sent healing energy to friends we had made. There were many sensation that arose. We continued to act as if all was well, and on the surface, all appeared to be. We experienced several closed places in public transportation, but nothing like those disruptions that Ukrainians in the eastern areas were experiencing.

So, people keep asking, “What was it like? How are people handing this?”

My answer upon reflection:

I sense Ukrainians are depressed, suffering with the pain of loss. This loss is like losing a sibling to death. Compare it to losing a favorite older brother or sister who dies unexpectedly. The loss involves so much more than what is revealed in the factoids covered in newspapers.

You, the surviving sibling ask, “Why is this happening? Why are unprovoked hostilities breaking out when we have done nothing to upset? We used to feel taken care of by Russia. Now, we are attacked and Russia is killing off its own family, its own brothers and sisters. What is this and please, we are fearful, how will it all end? We watch and see soldiers returning to the hospital seriously wounded, and this is during a cease-fire time. How can we go on? What does all of this mean? What will happen now to the rest of my family?”

Waves of grief overcome the Ukrainians as they contemplate and wonder. All those years of Russia watching out for the younger sibling, Ukraine, where has that family feeling gone to now?. Waves of grief and waves of understanding a new reality: yes, Ukraine is a country and yes, patriotism is needed at a time like this. No longer can we hide our heads and say, “Let them take care of it.” Ukrainians are now becoming responsible, no longer feeling the older brother will take charge and they can just sit and watch and feel entitled.

I continue to send love and thoughts of energetic healing to all, the Ukrainians as well as the Russians so this family of man sees how it is all connected. I ask that all appreciate their history, feel the joy it brings to be part of a family, yet also remain aware that change is what moves our whole system, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. Those people/things/organizations that do not change and grow, they die off. Those people/ things/organizations willing to learn and work at improvements for all people, those people/things/organizations will grown and be healthy and prosper.

All love and laughter and health to you!

Because of tapping on a daily basis and becoming so much more aware of my own body and its joys and discomforts and feelings, I had a brilliant idea.

Experts say to “Create your day in advance.”  I had been doing that for many years.  Before attending and graduating from law school, I made sure that I created the room and the time and the intent for success.  I had also written a list of goals that probably were like a bucket list.

And after mulling over and reading Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project, I felt I was able to feel what is more ME. How am I to expereince and see life and relationships in a more fruitful and relaxed way, and also a way that is my unique way of seeing the world?  For example, I happen to LOVE taking notes.  Rubin mentions that as one of her fond things to do.  I also find it relaxing and even focusing and increasinng my creativity.  

What else?  I find my drawing and gardening so ME;  I return back from a workshop and that is all I feel like doing, sit and draw or paint or weed or plant……  Those two activities bring me back to being the unqie person I am meant to be…..and they give me back a happy spirit that emerges even after helping clients with their woes of life.

Yet it was an AHH, AHH moment when I realized:  No more To-Do list, but instead concentrate of my To-Feel List.  I plan to feel good and happy.  I intend now to have more time focused on the things that are unqiuely my spirit and loves.  So, call Regina, YES!  Grab the protractor and draw a new geometric design, YES!  Hug my partner, YES!  Call my children and rejoice in their voices, YES!

And after a week of concentrating more on my feelings, guess what?  I can tell my whole body is saying, “Good deal!  Way to go woman!  Enjoy your uniquess for all it offers!

Yes, we sit and watch one thing, yet here are others, in Syria, Nepal, Ukraine going through a different kind of life. Is it a matter for us to think or feel about? Do we all have to take responsibility in our hearts for creating the world as an abundant happy place for everyone?

I learned in Ukraine how many limiting ideas I kept holding onto in my life. A person had asked that I work on getting the whole town wired for Internet. I said internally, “But many places in the USA do not have this yet……” And so feeling this place in Ukraine should not have it until WE in US had it…..EEKS!

It shocked me to realize my thinking. So it is something I work on, there is abundance for ALL. We do not need to fear that giving another person something–be it love, money, trees, or ducks–will diminish us in the least.

As a matter of fact, we will grow more in the scale of ALL things worthwhile!

I now take responsibility for creating the world as happy and abundant place for me and for everyone. So, to that end I am now doing my tapping and meditations with a sense of “We……..” So as I go through the day and look for items to improve or to enjoy, I can now say, “May WE all be at peace. May WE all have abundance. May WE all realize health in or lives.”

Please try asking for things for yourself and for everyone in your world and in the whole world. Use the word “WE” when asking for help or praying for an intent.

Let me know how it goes: Does it change your relationships in any way? Does it have a spiritual side that amazes you? And as per the law of attraction, do you see your own life changing in wonderful ways?

A friend who lives in Ireland had e-mailed me this article from the newspaper Irish Mirror:

http://www.irishmirror.ie/news/irish-news/crime/gardai-begin-probe-800-babies-3657033

The article tells of a prior 1975 discovery of a mass grave site, this site only being investigated now in 2014.

My friend and I use tapping of Chinese acupuncture points to clear our old stories and lessen the impact of things that trigger us emotionally or physically.

Yes, this article triggered me. It opened up more of the pus under the scab unearthed after I had seen the movie Philomena. The pus seemed to relate to how church has done what the church believed was for our best, while the church benefitted economically. Please note I am using this word “church” in a general way to cover more than one denomination here.

So, reading this article brought forth ideas to tap on. I share them here, and I plan to keep working to uncover more of a solution. May these ideas help you also find more peace.

“Even though some people in the church do mean things and things to profit themselves, I deeply and completely accept myself and my feelings of anger and distrust.

Even though I grew up believing the church was right and knew the best for us all, I deeply and completely accept myself and my feelings of anger and disappointment.

Even though I believed so strongly that the church was correct, I accept my feelings of anger and disappointment.

KC: I needed to have security

TH: I felt protected by the church

EB: I was so naive.

UE: I could kick myself for believing the church and its rules.

UN: I feel so stupid.

CH: I feel so stupid and say, “Is there any good that comes out of this?”

CB: A good for me: I am learning to trust myself and my gut feelings.

UA: A good for me: am learning to trust in myself and validate my own behaviors and beliefs.

UN: A good for me: I am positive my heart and my feelings connect me to integrity.

Wrists Together: The universe is constantly looking out for my welfare.

TH: I am fearful of replacing one dogma with another.

EB: I am searching for my own true values and universal truths of our world to lead me on our common journey.

SE: I trust that being open and connected with all people of the world will help me accomplish my purpose here on earth..

UE: I trust my own guidance system.

UN: I love myself and my viewpoints.

CH: I enjoy people who calmly argue and say their positions pro and con on all topics.

CB: I speak my truth with calmness and love and joy.

UA: I listen with respect and an open mind.

UN: I digest and clear out old or toxic or misinformed ideas.

Wrists Together: I am ready to forgive those in the church.

TH: I choose to forgive people in the church; they were doing the best they could.

EB: If I forgive them, will anything change?

SE: I trust the universe will open the minds of people involved and bring about change in church.

UE: I see that all churches use all their resources to support people in their life journey.

UN: I see churches discovering their purpose to improve the lives of women, children, and men.

CH; I see a world whose people are free of fear and are able to grow to their fullest in spirit, mind, and body.

UA: I see a world where all people know they are connected and their actions show that connection.

Take three big breaths; drink some water if you are thirsty.

Please send all healing energy to Ireland.

I dare you, doctors of all kinds!

I dare you to breakaway from that TV set in your waiting room.

I dare you to encourage wellness.

I dare you to stop advertising sickness and pills and drama and all that goes with it.

Suggestion: REPLACE all of the pharmaceutical videos and supposed “health” infomercials with videos.

Yes, with videos, and what about comedies? How about you start with a Laurel and Hardy short video? Let that play for one week and see the difference in your office environment.

See how people respond when the nurse asks them, “How are you?”

See how your staff responds after one week of a lighter feeling pervading the space.

See some smiles around the office? Maybe you’ll start to see some lightness of heart in your staffs? Maybe even you will feel more like talking and laughing and sharing what is going on in your own world?
