When we hold on to stuff we don't need it can weigh us down and hold us back from joy and peace.
Identify one thing you can toss in your donation bag and toss it in today.
Today I was browsing through the book 10 Simple Things You Can Do Now to Profoundly Change the World by Helen McConnell. Chapter two talks about the different ways we judge others
Let’s start paying attention to when judgment comes up for yourself and others. Write it down and Tap about it. Say 3 times while taping on side of hand: Even though I was judging myself or another person I choose to let it go and love myself and others as I am or they are.
We feel more joy when we are being positive
Journal or ponder on: What are things you need to keep and pull out of your bag (purse, wallet, backpack, briefcase…). This idea was inspired by: 101 Journal Questions For Women, by Tony T Robinson
This quote spoke to me, from the book Modern Energy Tapping and I wanted to share it: “If you fill your mind to overflowing with beautiful things, there can be no room left for doubt.” By Silvia Hartmann

Something to think about:
What is one thing you’d like to accomplish this week and what are some steps you can do each day to complete it?
Let’s pursue our goals and aspirations; it can add delight in our day to see progress and overflowing bliss to our lives when we complete them.
For a long time I wanted to complete this one project. It would get pulled out, dusted off and put back on the shelf because other time sensitive projects needed to be completed. Last week I had some time open up and I completed it.
My second book Joyful Life Living Uncover Your Joy is up loaded and approved on Amazon in paperback. I felt overjoyed by completing this. Next is a Kindle version.
Let’s pursue our aspirations and share them with others.
Sometimes thoughts can swirl around in the brain that hold us back from joy. These can be self-sabotaging and bring us down.
Let’s remember to tap on more joy when our head is swirling with undesirable thoughts.
When we find ourselves feeling nervous or edgy this could be a sign that we are thinking of future events and it’s time to bring our mind back to the present. Some ideas on focusing are:
Let’s check in on our thoughts when we feel uneasy and bring ourselves back to the present.
Sometimes we need some extra calm. Here’s a short tapping using points on the hand and fingers. This is inspired by Silvia Hartman’s Energy EFT. See points to left marked by lotuses
Take three deep breaths and say: I want to feel extra calm energy
Start tapping on thumb point and say; calm energy
Take another deep breath move to the next point and repeat this through all the points on the picture below. After the last point (karate chop point) take three deep breaths. Way to go on tapping! If you want to continue repeat the steps and go for it.
Think about this and open your mind and let the ideas flow out...
What feelings do you want to have more of this year?
Today's writing topic is inspired by Leonie Dawson's, Create Your Amazing Year Workbook (2014) from page 17.
As part of my journey to be me I joined Toastmasters to gain more confidence and skill with public speaking. One of my boxes I put myself in is I couldn’t speak publicly. This was an old story I was telling myself from a past experience from childhood. The funny thing is since that experience I’ve done presentations, took and passed a college speech class and even run some workshops but I kept telling myself the old story that I couldn’t speak publicly.
Recently I gave my first speech at Toastmasters. I was nervous and shaking but I did it! I plan to keep working on this until I feel more comfortable speaking. This will help me break free of this box and continue to spread my wings to be free to be me.
We all have experienced disappointments in life and I wanted to create one for this: Check in on the number between 0 – 10 to rate it.
Tapping on the karate chop point and say this 1 – 3 times: Even though I feel disappointed about _____________(fill in the blank) I love and accept myself
Tap on the other points alternating saying these:
I choose to let it go
Take a few deep breaths. Check in on your number and if it is down to 2 or lower your done and if not you can do another round of tapping. Say this remaining ___(fill in the number).
When you get your number down 2-3 you can do a round of tapping on more bliss, peace or calm.
While clearing out emotions from life experiences I had noticed sometimes it's time to let go of old relationships that people had grown in different directions and weren’t a fit any more.
When we are open to more peace in our lives it can show up in different ways and sometimes it’s with shifts within us &/or moving on and letting go.
While clearing out old stuck emotions from life experiences I had with others I noticed relationships changed when I showed up in a more peaceful state.
When we want to create peace start within first and the other can follow.
It would be great for kids to have the gift of Tapping. Here’s a great article on how parents can calm their own feelings down and teach kids a simple way to tap too.

As we go about our weekend let’s pay attention to when we feel and see delight.
Sometimes we need a boost in our day and Tapping can help with this.
Tap on karate chop point and say out loud: Even though I feel _______(fill in the blank) I choose to have a joy-filled day. Tap and say it three times or more.
Let’s have a great day!
In our busy lives we can breathe shallow or catch our breath at times and it can affect how we feel. Do this breathing practice two - three times in a row and enjoy the calmer feeling.
Let’s take time in our day to slow down, honor our body and focus on our breathing.
The Holidays are around the corner and stress can creep in so let’s Tap on it and dial it down:
Check in with yourself and rate it between 0 – 10. Tap on Karate chop Point and say this three times (chart above):
Even though I feel Holiday stress I love and accept myself as I am
Top of head This Holiday stress
Eye brow – Feeling tense
Side of eye – This Holiday stress at a ____ (fill in your rate #)
Under eye - I want to dial it down
Under nose – This Holiday stress
Chin – I am letting it go
Collar bone - I feel is draining from my body
Under the arm – feeling calm and peaceful
Take some deep breaths, drink some water and check in on your #. If it is a 3 or higher do another round.
Let’s dial down our Holiday stress and enjoy the peace.
Let's release some resentment today.
Here is a round of Tapping on it (points shown below): Tapping on the karate chop point and say this two times: Even though I feel resentment I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Continue tapping on the karate chop point and say: Even though I feel resentment I choose to talk to the person, stand strong in my boundaries and let this resentment go.
Alternate between these three reminder phrases on other points starting with Top of the head:
