When tapping on an issue and are feeling better or if you rated it and it’s down to a zero.
Tap on each round point and say out loud; I feel ________ (peace and joy or other words you’d like to feel) flowing in.
It’s important to me to have some adventure in the weekend, especially when we have a three-day weekend. Often, we’ll do a day trip on a long weekend but we had many to dos on our list to get done. We both agreed to forgo the day trip, fit some fun in and check off a number of to dos too.
We even combined a “to do” with some fun by doing an errand, then we found something in that part of town we hadn’t done before. It felt great to fit some fun in and accomplish many “to dos” in our weekend!
Fit some fun in and check off some to do's too, when needed.
It’s been enjoyable to have the amazing thoughts of Louise Hay’s, I Can Do It 2019 Calendar. Here’s one from April 23rd I wanted to share with you:
“I love and approve of myself through all the ups and downs of my life.
All is truly well in my world.“
When unpacking failures and mistakes I realized that using “mistakes” was less uncomfortable than failing. We can learn and move forward when we make mistakes or failures.
When I look below the failure or mistake at the feelings, embarrassment comes up for me. It’s something I don’t enjoy experiencing. I’d like to just own my mistakes and failures, learn from them and move on. We’re not perfect and we are going to have embarrassing moments. We are human!
When we have more information then we can tap on the different parts of it, release what’s holding ourselves back, grow from it and move on.
A year or so ago my Honey, a friend and I talked about going to see an author my friend and I enjoyed. My man wasn’t interested at the time and my friend and I decided not to go.
Two different times this came up a year later. I realized I was sorry we didn’t go and wasn’t sure if he’d be doing any events in the area again.
Then after one of these talks my Hubby checked to see if he was doing events. Not only was he doing them, he was going to be in Portland the coming weekend. We talked about it and purchased our tickets. I let my friend know and she decided to go too. I was glad we were enjoying the event together.
I kept asking myself why didn't we do this the first time, then I realized we were in the right place at the right time, in this moment.
Let's be open to to the moments and be glad for them.
When my Hubby looked up the author events, I felt his intuition was leading him and I was glad he followed though.
Let’s be open to our intuition and explore the possibilities.
Today I was drawn to the book: Mindset Mastery, by Louise Presley-Turner and this stood out:
“How do you want to feel in your life?”
I encourage you to explore this, be on the lookout for these feelings and how to incorporate them into your life.
Let's soar with our life feelings.
Deep self-limiting beliefs play a big part in low confidence, self-belief and self-esteem.
We have laser focus on many failures and beliefs but what if we challenge them when we hear a negative thought come up.
Inspired by: How to Build Your Belief in Yourself by Amy Morin LCSW, posted Oct 18, 2016: www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/what-mentally-strong-people-dont-do/201610/how-build-your-belief-in-yourself
Lets choose to challenge harmful thoughts, follow my savvy ideas and build my self-belief.
While on line I found a comment about confidence. Another word that was used for it was self-belief. It’s been on my mind for a while. I knew I wanted to take some time to explore this. Here’s a definition of it:
“Self-belief is that positive feeling you have inside that you are capable of anything. You feel empowered, confident and fueled with virility in the face of challenges and problems.” From a blog on Mindvalley.com called: 5 Positive Things That Can Happen If You Have Self-Belief on January 15, 2018
What if we can cultivate our self-belief and help ourselves move forward on our journey by looking for optimistic evidence to support it.
Let’s look for optimistic evidence and build our self-belief.

You are an amazing person!

My hubby has been reading an interesting book. When it's laying around, I read some. He's even put in a book mark for me. It’s called:
Dare To Lead, by Dr Brené Brown
There are other book titles that caught my eye by her too.

Old habits can sneak back in if we aren’t mindful. Lately fear has been creeping in and it can block me from what I want in my life.
I was at an event and the seats we choose didn’t give the leg room I need for my knees. I said to my Hubby we can’t do this again and he said: “we could choose different seats like the row behind us.” Yes, of course we can! I was letting the fear of my knees acting up block my options and I don’t want fear to rule my life. In the end my knees were fine and I’d gladly go to an event there again.
When we focus on the positives in life it can take the blinders off, we can see other options and feel more freedom.
What is your focus for growth this year? This can be personal or professional.
Believe in me and money mindset are my choices. By just being open to these I have been pleasantly surprised by how opportunities have started to show up in my life.
Let’s be open to a focus or two for 2019
Here’s a great article on EFT and staying in the positive when others around us aren’t.
There was a friend & she could see my value before I did. She knew I was going to touch people’s lives.
It’s great to have people that care about us & see our potential, even if we can’t at the time. This can plant seeds for future blooming.
Let's be planters & bloomers.
What is one thing you can let go of this weekend.
It can be a feeling (sad, anger, irritated), recycle papers off your desk or let go of something else in your space you don't need any more.
When our minds and spaces are clearer we can feel more relaxed.
Even though speaking my truth during the confrontation still feels like a success. I felt a bit unsettled about it later.
I tapped and talked about it. I was pleased I had improved on speaking my truth and I realized there was room for growth. At times I could say less.
Let’s remember to keep it simple when needed while speaking our truth gently.
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.
