Has fear held you back at times from doing something you really want to do? You aren’t alone. Ways I have worked on this are:
These were amazing learning experiences for me and it felt great to dial down the fear and go for it! That's me below lifting off in a helicopter at sunset at the Oregon Coast. What a ride!
When I realized I wanted to guide people by sharing what I had learned including tapping. Then in walked Helen McConnell into my life. She continues to believe and mentor me on this journey.
She wrote a book I love: 10 Simple Things You Can Do Now To Profoundly Change the World. It’s a book on changing the world by changing ourselves. This is one I keep around and continue to go through. It often has ideas that pop out at me. One that did today was on page 3:
“Hiding your true self away is a lot of work and takes tremendous energy. Energy that you could be using for something important!”
It has been a go to for me to hide myself away but I want to share what I have learned and to do this I need to be visible and true to myself. Onward on my journey to guide.
Here's a great quote from: Love for No Reason by Marcie Shimoff and Carol Kline
“Whatever you are doing, love yourself for doing it.
Whatever you are feeling, love yourself for feeling it.” – Thaddeus Golas, twentieth-century philosopher
This reminded me of the set up statement for Gary Craig style tapping that I use. Even though I feel _____ I love and accept myself. When tapping on something we are also tapping in loving ourselves.
Let’s love ourselves where we are at.

When we’ve been hurt before it can be scary to risk feeling it again and we can resist or avoid it.
Let’s tap into our courage and step out into life again, it’s worth it!
Sometimes we get bad news and negative messages or troubled feelings can come up. Today I felt disappointed and dissatisfied about an outcome. Then I decided to learn from this and I asked myself:
What can I do differently next time to have a better outcome?
I had a few ideas come to me and it took the sting out of the disappointment. I have a plan for next time and it feels good to be prepared.
Let’s remember to be kind to ourselves and seek solutions.

Even though it was hard at times to accept help I also realize I did ask for it and for resources. A few years ago I probably wouldn’t have and I did. It’s great to see my progress and know I am growing.
Let’s be open to growing and seeing our progress.
Part 2 Accepting help from others
Sometimes it’s hard to ask or accept help for myself. On my road to declutter and rearranging I’ve had to reach out to people and ask to move heavy things and more. I was surprised how hard it was sometimes and as I write this I realize I turned down some help that I could have used. I just needed to look at it from a different view and see it’s not wasting others time.
Let’s be open to different views and appreciate the assistance offered from others.
Part 1 Accepting Help From Others
It’s important to continue to grow and learn. Communication is an area I continue to explore. Here’s an interesting thought about communication:
“Think of communication as a sharing. Then it becomes important to be aware of how you communicate.” This is from, Powerful Communications Skills, by Colleen McKenna.
Let’s be attentive on how we speak our truth and communicate kindly.

Lately I’ve been struggling and I want to feel fantastic. I started exploring options on how I can feel better.
I went to see my new Primary Doctor and she had some suggestions. We’ll learn more after some lab tests get back. She gave me a few referrals too.
There was a free seminar on stem cell treatment I went too and even had an intake to see what it’s all about it. This was fascinating to learn more about. Possibly in the future it will be more readily available and I’ll go for it. I was surprised how many offices are doing this around Portland, OR.
My inflammation in the body is up. I checked out some books, bought one and plan to make some small changes over time to my diet.
I checked into units similar to a tens unit. I decided to give one a test drive. It gave an option for helping inflammation and had other benefits too.
Wellness is a journey and I am continuing on mine. I am open to possibilities and plan to explore them.
Let’s be open and explore.
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
Write or think about ways you are open to do self-care in your week.
Examples; more sleep, yoga, tapping
Sometimes we need to delegate tasks. Let’s be open to delegating when possible.
