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?

I subscribe to OPRAH magazine. Why do I subscribe? I like several of the authors who write for OPRAH and feel a monthly jolt of their positive energies will keep me and those people I gift the magazine to in better balance.

This month, September, 2013, I read with anticipation a wonderful article called, “What Makes You Tick,” under a monthly column written by Martha Beck, “May We Help You?” The summary encourages us to read it by saying that Martha Beck will describe how to defuse “explosive situations.” In addition, she will enable us to “Revisit emotional triggers of the past.” p. 44.

Beck uses the language of war. It appears that we all have had social minefields, “created whenever we ground our actions in some form of fear.” P. 45. Then emotional triggers are set up for us to relive and re-engage our emotions as if still living through the original “trauma-drama.” Whatever and however created, we continue to visit these minefields over and over in our lives. We are triggered by people or events and end up right back in the minefield.

Martha Beck describes a beginning method to alleviate these drama-trauma and excessive intensities by use of her three-step system called “RAT.” First, she suggests you begin to Recognize when we are in the throes of an emotional trigger. Then she says to analyze: feelings before, what is associated with that feeling, when begin, and especially, “Do I want to keep on re-creating that trauma?’ And lastly, as point three, use Beck’s system called ‘Tranquil Eyes” to make your reaction less explosive and even create fewer trauma-dramas.

EEKS, not enough! EEKS, not fast enough! I actually spoke out, “Why did you stop there?”

Here is where I suggest Martha Beck truly help people to lessen emotional intensity around these minefields. I am aghast to see that tapping/EFT [Emotional Freedom Technique; see http://www.eftuniverse.com] was not properly cited as a method to calm and release the intensity around these minefields. Tapping is a method that uses our own physical bodies to release the energy blockages that have occurred around the emotional minefield.

Understandably a system so easy to learn and also to teach and write about would help any of her readers immensely. Please, Martha Beck, do know that what you gave was, in my opinion, misleading. When there are methods such as tapping these Chinese acupuncture points for stress relief, why are you neglecting to educate?

Life will go on, yet my reaction to this article is an important sign to me.

I plan to spread the message about tapping/EFT even more strongly in this blog. Here an accepted and acknowledged expert in the helping field leaves a large reading public in the dark about the best and quickest way to defuse these emotional traumas and minefields. Why did she fail to help more people in such an open forum?

Please, any readers of this blog, go over to the http://www.eftuniverse.com and watch free videos and subscribe to the free manual to learn how to successfully work with these emotional triggers. There are also practitioners listed all across the world. And there are classes for you to attend and learn more of this system being used more extensively to lessen both emotional and physical pain. You do NOT have to continue re-living and carrying around in your energetic system these old drama-traumas the rest of your life.

Any questions? Write me below:

I was coaching a new client who was unable to get past the movie title to their traumatic event.  I questioned them to find when problem started, what was their body trying to tell them, colors, shapes, and also how their life would be different if this movie had never happened.

We had tapped the movie title down to a low level.  We also tapped down the worry that they would not ever be not ready to release this movie from their life.

I had given client homework to do based on client’s own words.  They would tap each day on these phrases before returning to our next tapping session.

Client then asked.  Could they videotape me doing the tapping while speaking the set up phrases and reminder phrases.?  He felt he’d then have an easier time doing the homework I had given him.  Of course, no problem.

Then the idea came to me:  why not have the client videotape themsleves on their own iphone.? The client could do the tapping while also speaking the set up statements and reminder phrases.

Eureka!

Client was coached to tap and speak the full tapping basic recipe for three relevant set up and reminder phrasex.  Client videotaped themselves speaking the three statements successfully.  cCient was very appreciative of this ability to watch themselves tapping.

How about that?  Here we can use mirroring of the client’s behavior to reinforce the effects of the homework tapping sessions.

I very much enjoy this new technology for its value as a solution-based idea to be used successfully with tapping.

 

Money Drama: Tapping Script for When You Recognize You NEED Drama about Money
I had an AH HA moment when traveling recently. I am a former United States Peace Corps Volunteer, 2010-2012 in Ukraine, and had visited USA and returned to Ukraine to visit my partner Mike and to teach tapping. Then, I traveled to India, Nepal, Thailand, and Vietnam. The AH HA knowledge came about because the fluctuations in the local currency exchange rates were not easy and not capable of being always calculated immediately in my head. The joy of traveling includes changing currency. You’re planning to not have too much “excess” cash left from one country and yet have enough to get over to airport. I had been tapping and using exercises from Carol Look’s Attracting Abundance,, and realized I still had blockages in this area of money. Tapping allowed me to clear this blockage.

So, I went shopping before I left Kathmandu and flew to Bangkok. The AH HA moment was this: How did I do this? And how had I so many times in my life I had “mysteriously” done the same? When I shopped, I realized I actually had an automatic sensor that made me shop until I got CLOSE TO BUT NOT OVER the money needed to get to the airport. So, the very act of shopping until almost all money exhausted brought many aspects of money to mind. I thought and tapped two rounds:

Even though I have this feeling I need to spend almost all of the money in my pockets, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

But wait, more came up: Why did I need to do this? Why was a similar feeling, like I had in university, of stress coming over me? How did I also mysteriously always have “just enough money” left to pay the necessary accounts……..BUT felt worried and stressed out because my calculations had cut it so very close? Thoughts of university fears came crashing into my head. Two more rounds of tapping:

Even though I was fearful of getting the university tuition paid on time, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Now, a long string of similar events came to my mind, and I did several tapping rounds on each:

Even though I was fearful of paying law school tuition on time, I deeply and completely accept myself and my feelings.

Even though I was fearful of paying monthly installments for the orthodontic work for my children, I deep and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I was fearful of how to pay off that mortgage, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I was fearful of getting the money together for……(please add in your event here)……, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Wait, there was more: Thoughts about how money was handled in my family house came into my head. Dad had full control of money. Mom had to ask for any money for anything. Money in my family brought up a feeling of fear and of drama, “Do you NEED it now?” When is it due; Is it due tomorrow?” “You should have asked sooner.” “Why do you need those pants?” “Why do you need those shorts?” “Why does school ask for that?” The feelings about money were that money was never easily acquired. There was a sense of fear and drama because when you needed something, you had waited until the last minute. Fear and uncertainty became normal about money. “Would I get this request?” “What could happen if money did not come through?” Money equated, in my mind, in addition to fear, a sense of uncertainty that was drama. Drama had become irrevocably linked with anything to do about money.

Had this drama become a necessity in all money matters? Or, possibly a rise in the cortisol level was demanded as explained below and by Dr. Dawson Church?

Even though I grew up with fear and drama in my life over money, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I am an adult with a need for fear and drama in my life about money, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I am addicted to feeling fear and drama whenever I have any dealings with money, I am an ok woman.
Now comes the great part: This realization was made: Do I have to carry that fear and drama around with me the rest of my life? Is it possible to be free of that fear and drama and move ahead confidently and securely? I can change this! I know how to tap. Now, I am not at the whims of past conditioning: So, tapping several rounds visualizing my future with money, I said:

Even though I used to feel anything involving money must involve lots of fear and drama, I now choose to be relaxed and contented about money.

Even though I needed to feel drama about money and its use, I plan to spend appropriately and to save appropriately, and I deeply and completely accept myself and my feelings.

More of an opening came then. Now, in adult hood, how did these fearful situations seem to arise? Who made these situations arrive? The law of attraction involves what I am focusing on and feeling. Could it be I am responsible for this fear and addiction to drama? Could it be I set up these situations so I could enjoy this fear and drama? That fear and drama about money matters are what I had become used to all of my life. That was a big mental leap here. I realized I was setting up the situations where I could be fearful about money and could have that sense of drama. More tapping, and yet now with a sense of lightness and freedom appearing:

Even though I set up the situations about money to have that fear and sense of drama I’ve come to expect, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I used to set up fearful, dramatic experiences about money, I plan to see other options in experiencing the energy that is money.

Already a smile filled my face and my mind and my heart.

Follow up: I used this script with a friend to also check if clearing a money block this way made sense to them. We had a fruitful and energy-blockage clearing tapping session.

Happily, I see changes in so many of my behaviors about money. I feel a sense of peace and a lack of stress about money matters. I am excited to know that drama is no longer needed. I plan to continue growing using my own personal peace procedure as well as working along with other tapping practitioners.
