Do you want to feel better immediately about what’s going on right now? Tap on resistance. This is the one factor that’s always present in one form or another when you’re uncomfortable. So if you don’t know what else to tap on, start there.
I did this the other day. I was talking to a consultant who really knows her stuff. She was suggesting something I really didn’t want to do.
Bring On The EFT
Deep down, a part of me knew it would be really helpful to do it. I could feel myself drumming up a bunch of arguments against it. But I realized I wanted to open up to what she was saying, so I started finger-tapping on my resistance, and it disappeared so quickly!
By clearing the resistance right away, we came up with some ways to make the idea completely workable. Creativity and intuition are much more accessible with resistance and reluctance out of the way. This is such a perfect example of nipping things in the bud so it doesn’t blossom into a full-blown major issue.
Your Turn Now
You can do this, too. Think about it: No matter what’s going on with you, if it’s unwanted there is some resistance at work. Maybe the resistance is taking the form of anger. Maybe it’s masking your fear or your sadness. The point is, you don’t have to take the time to figure out if you want instant relief. If you know you’re uncomfortable, just start tapping on resistance.
If you’re by yourself, do the setup phrase, “Even though I have this resistance, I want to love and accept myself anyway.” And then start tapping on “this resistance.” If that’s not convenient, just do silent finger-tapping discreetly – behind your back or under the table – and know you’re focusing on resistance.
Here’s a bonus: As the resistance dissolves, clarity arises. You’ll see the broader picture and the deeper issue (if there is one) that could use your tapping help. That’s what happened with me. I was afraid I couldn’t complete the task in a way that would be useful. And I was mad at myself for not figuring it out sooner. And I was embarrassed for not having it all together before we spoke.
All of those emotions showed up as resistance to hearing what was said. I had no idea all that other stuff was going on until I cleared the right-now resistance. I’ll bet the same clear picture will come into focus for you.
And if you get in over your head, or just want an outside experienced perspective, I’d love to work with you on your challenge. Contact me for a free consult to discuss possibilities for going deeper with EFT.
