That Sinking Feeling….. I Knew It Well!

empty pockets
Do you know what I’m talking about?  That sinking feeling you get as fear & worry creep in?  Or maybe it comes as a jolt that courses through your body– I’ve had that one too!  Not a lot of fun for sure.

Mine came around money.  Fear of not having enough.  Ever.  It didn’t matter whether I was in “good times” or “bad times”– As far back as I can remember I reacted with fear and trembling whenever I opened my checkbook, peeked at my account balance or opened those dreaded credit card bills!  Yikes!  What a way to live!  I was always worried something terrible would go wrong and I wouldn’t be able to pay my bills or wouldn’t have enough for the basics let alone for fun stuff!  I was stuck and desperately wished I could find a way to relax around this.

Long story short, I met and became good friends with EFT!  This certainly wasn’t a “one minute wonder” turn-around for me.  This is something I tapped on persistently, covering many angles and limiting beliefs that had crept in over the years.  But sure enough, little by little things started changing and in less than a year I had reached my tipping point!  It was amazing– I nearly tripled my income from the previous year and these amazing, out of the blue opportunities kept popping up!  My abundance ball had really started rolling and it felt like it was rolling downhill  (a good thing)!  All I needed to do was keep taking action for the momentum to continue to build.  I was no longer struggling against myself but felt hand-in-hand with my conscious dreams and desires and my subconscious “directives.”

So often we don’t get why achieving what we want in life– higher income, better health, happy relationships– seems so hard.  Everything is a struggle and we wonder why we’re stuck.  My answer has been tapping and to that end I have a mini tap-along below to help you get started — I’ve written it around fear of not having enough money so if this is something you struggle with TapTapTap!

Karate Chop:

Even though I have this big money worry and I really feel stuck, I choose to honor my feelings anyway
