I think one of the most important things in deciding your financial situation is simply that. You have to decide what it is you actually want. Wealth (however you choose to define that) is a choice. You need to be specific & clear about what you want.
The great thing is you don’t need to know how you are going to obtain what you desire. The steps we need to take will be made known to us, we need only listen. Many of us need to have the security of having all the answers. This is why many of us do not live the wealth we desire, as we are scared of not knowing so we do nothing.
The first step is knowing what you desire stems first from a choice - your decision to be rich or not.
Use EFT to eliminate any fears:
‘Even though I don’t know how I will ever be rich, I deeply & completely love & accept myself. I choose to know it is not my job to figure out how I trust opportunities will be presented to be – my job is to simply act upon them”
‘Even though it’s just not possible for me to have the amount of money I desire in my curent situation, I deeply & completely love & accept myself. I choose to be open to the Universe where there are no ceilings on money’
‘Even though I’m not sure presicely what I want regarding my finances, I deeply & completely love & accept myself. I choose to tune in & listen to myself – my true wants will be revealed to me’
Whenever I think about the term ‘mental health‘ the first thing that comes to me is our thoughts. Often there are so many of them. Do we allow our thoughts to control us or are we in charge of them? How to turn off all the noise?
You probably are aware you need to make space to allow in the new. The same goes for our thoughts. The calmest, most poised people I know all meditate. With practise we can switch off from our thoughts & allow a breathing space from our internal chatter.
If you have never tried meditating before, I encourage you to try it. If you are finding it difficult but are still keen to give meditation a go, tap on any resistance using EFT as it arises.
Have you ever come across Don Tolman’s 7 point aproach to living a healthy lifestyle? One point is not more important than the other, all work in harmony.
1. Breath fresh air (if you travel in a car for long distances, wind down the windows every 10 minutes to let the air recirculate)
2. Take regular walks
3. Have loving relationships (Don recommends leaving any relationship that is toxic)
4. Drink water (energise your water by tipping repeatedly from one glass to another to oxyenate the water, which absorbs & enhances the effectiveness of the water in your body)
5. Eat whole foods
6. Expose yourself to sunlight 15 minutes a day
7. Passion – do what you love – it doesn’t have to be your profession, it could be gardening. Make time to enjoy doing what excites you.
Use EFT to remove any resistance you feel about becoming or continuing to be healthy.
I’m aware the word ‘spiritual’ means different things to different people. Whatever term or label you choose to use that feels right for you, use it – whether this be Consciousness, God, The Universe, Higher Power.There is no right way for everyone. No one should have to conform to the same point of view (what a boring world that would be).
Whatever term or philosophy you connect with, whatever works is the correct one for you.
If you are finding yourself judging others or feeling others are wrong as they do not share your point of view you can start tapping. Do you identify with any of the following?
‘Even though I feel insecure that others do not share the same point of view as me I deeply & completely love & accept myself. I choose to see everyone is attracted to different points of view that help them. None is better than the other’
‘Even though ______ is wrong for interpreting _____ religion/philosophy in the way they do, I deeply & completely love & accept myself. I choose to understand I feel threatened that others do not intepret things the way I do’
‘Even though my belief is the best in the world & everyone else should believe it too, I deeply & completely love & accept myself. I choose to accept & be peaceful my belief does not resonate with everyone.’
The word relationship comes from the word ‘relate‘. How well do we relate to others? What we hear & read about relationships influences us. But I think the most powerful conditioning on what is & isn’t expected in a relationship, comes from what we were exposed to when we were growing up.
We often model (act out) what our parents were like – subconsciously. I remember when my wife & I were first married & we stayed with her parents for a month after we’d just arrived in NZ from England. I understood where many of her expectations came from as these were also shared by my in-laws. When I pointed this out to her, she was stunned.
She then used EFT to tap away beliefs that were not serving her. She recognised those were her parents beliefs & not hers. She’d quietly taken them on & acted them out with me in our marriage.
Somtimes it’s easier for others to observe this as they come from a more objective place. Ask your partner (nicely!) to share with you how they think you are similar to your parents.
Listen carefully to what your partner says & decide if what you are hearing could be true. If so, is this belief or pattern serving you? If not, tap on each one as you are made aware.
I would like to share what held me back for a long time. I wanted things to be ‘ready’ & in place before I acting on anything. The reality was nothing much got done. I believed you had to line everything up. I believed you were supposed to aim before you fired.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing & I can see now how much time I wasted. Now I aim first. I take action & then I adjust if need be & then fire again. I believe any action is better than no action. Once you have set something in motion you can then decide if that was the right action or not.
EFT helped me let go of the need for everything to be perfect (things rarely are!). EFT eliminated the worry of ‘getting it wrong’ & the need for things to be spot on the first time.
Is there is somthing you desire in your life? Then prepare to actively receive it. By this I mean physically get ready to have this desire in your life.
I knew of someone who wanted a new man in her life. She physically made room for him as if he were already in her life. She cleared out half of her drawers so there would be space for his things. Soon there was a new man in her life!
It is more difficult for the new to come in when you are clinging to the old. Cut the ties – as daunting as this is. Indeed the physical act of making room for the new, demonstrates your faith & proves you are expecting somthing better……
Use EFT to help clear these fears:
|‘Even though I don’t know what will happen & I feel scared of the future if I cut ties with this person/thing/situation, I deeply & completey love & accept myself. I choose to welcome in new good with happy expectation’
