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.

Let’s share the gift of inner peace and joy.
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:
Part 2 of Freedom
Wow, I loved this post on Resentment Versus Freedom on Good News Network. Add in Tapping and it’s even stronger. Here is a link:
The other day I noticed my freezer needed to be cleaned off. It gave me a smile to see the space cleared off and cleaned and it felt great to have it easily accessible.
Let’s give ourselves a boost of joy by clearing and cleaning off a space so it’s easier to access and use.
When my space becomes cluttered it can throw me off and slow me down. It feels good to let go of unneeded things.
Today let’s look around our place, car, and/or office and release something that we don’t love or need.
I want to spread joy and being a negative Nelly isn’t the way to do this. This doesn’t mean I don’t feel bad at times and want to share my struggles.
It is finding a medium that works for me. I prefer it to be two thirds joy and one third other.
Let's find our medium and have more joy balance in our lives.
I have enjoyed webinars from Fabienne Fredrickson and I ran across a book by her: Embrace Your Magnificence.
While browsing through it I found this beautiful quote by Oprah Winfrey: “People who love you don’t treat you badly. Love doesn’t hurt. It’s supposed to feel good.” This touched me and I wanted to share.
Let's be open to abundant beautiful love in our lives.
Life can get overwhelming at times and over thinking can happen at times. Tapping can help with this:
Tap on Karate chop point and say
Even though I feel _____ (overwhelmed or fill in the blank) and I over think things at times I love and accept myself as I am. Even though I feel _____ (overwhelmed or fill in the blank) and I over think things at times I love and accept myself as I am. Even though I feel _____ (overwhelmed or fill in the blank) and I over think things at times I choose to release the _____ (overwhelm or fill in the blank) and use my tools to get me through.
If you want to do a round of Tapping look at chart and say reminder phrases below.
Top of the head - Feeling overwhelmed
Eye brow – I choose to let it go
Side of eye – Feeling overwhelmed
Under eye – I choose to let it go
Under nose – Feeling overwhelmed
On the chin –I choose to let it go
Collar bone – And use my tools
Under the arm –I am letting it go and using my tools

Let’s release the overwhelming feeling so we can feel more at ease.
There have been times in my life that I’ve been told I’m over thinking. Sometimes I need to rein my brain in. At these times I need to use and rely on my tools and techniques to help me through. A few things that can help with this are:
Let’s rein in our brains and use our tools, practices and techniques when needed.
Here is a quick tapping on being open to more peace and joy. Tap on the Karate Chop point and say either of these out loud three times:
I’m open to more peace and joy in my life. I choose to feel and see more of it, inside and out.
Even though I feel _____ (sad, blue…fill in the blank) I’m open to more peace and joy in my life. I choose to feel and see more of it, inside and out.
Take a few deep breaths and drink some water. Way to go on Tapping! Let’s Remember to Tap into more peace and joy!
When I’ve thought and wrote about my power it was about standing in it with people.
Today I saw this quote “An excuse is nothing but a challenge that you’ve given your power to.” From: You Are A Badass At Making Money, By Jen Sincero. Wow, this was a big aha moment! Standing in my power can be with others and more.
Let’s stand in our power. We are worth it!
