One of the commonalties we share is that once we achieve our goal, we then come up with a new desire. That is part of being human. We see it in children all the time. They bother you to get them a new toy. They really, really, really need it. You finally get it for them. The excitement is there. After awhile, however, they begin to focus on the next new thing that they need. How often have you seen that happen? Children have an amazing ability to get what they want. They are using the Law of Attraction all the time. It comes so easily to them.
As adults, we have different truths and realize that it is not that easy. Life is more complex. Putting your own desires and goals aside happens when you get busy taking care of others. There are so many demands that get placed on us as adults and there is never enough time to do everything. In order to juggle all of our responsibilities, something needs to be placed on the back burner. You forget what it is that you want for yourself or what your aspirations are. What happened to the dreams and ideals you had when you first started a career?
Defining a goal or a dream is the easy part. We all have the ability to dream. That is using the Law of Attraction to manifest your dreams. The challenge is that little voice that tells you there is a price to pay if you reach your goal. That is what I have begun to term the “yes, but…” syndrome. What is the downside of reaching your goal or peak potential? What keeps you from tapping into success and stimulating your personal economy?
Once you have begun to identify the doubt and negative thoughts you can begin to clear them. Some of the conflicts that come up include:
•Being successful will take away time from family and friends.
•If you are successful, you will have to work harder.
•You don’t deserve to succeed because of something you did earlier in your life.
•You are afraid that you will not be loved or would be rejected if you were successful.
Becoming aware of the doubt and internal conflict is the first step to making change. You don’t have to have them. I know. I had to get over my fear of public speaking and have my first presentation ready in four months. Thoughts can change. Tony Robbins states that “80% of success is psychology and 20% is inner conflicts.”
Now that you have recognized your doubting voice and “yes, buts…” you can begin to clear them. Identify them. Who did you hear this from before? Is this actually your concern or is it someone else’s concern that you heard repeatedly and actually internalized as your own
The Law of Attraction and the Emotional Freedom Technique are the perfect couple. LoA helps you to create your goal and EFT does the clean up work of removing the debris that gets in the way of reaching your goal. Using them will help you to tap into your success and to stimulate your personal economy. This will help you to raise your vibration and increase the success of getting what you want. They make a powerful combination.
If you are not familiar with the Emotional Freedom Technique go to this article on my website at http://www.kolpiacounseling.com/article-eft.html
Pick a “yes, but…” that you have as a block to your goal. We will tap for it.
Setup: "Even though I have doubts about my goals and what would change in my life if I reached my goal, I want to choose success."
"Even though a part of me is comfortable with where I am although I would rather be somewhere else, I choose to feel calm and confident about my ability to reach my goal."
"Even though a part of me is afraid to let go of my doubts and worry, I accept who I am and how I feel."
***Now for the phrases that focus on the problem***
Eyebrow: "I am used to doubting my abilities."
Side of Eye: "I'm afraid to change because I have become comfortable with where I am."
Under Eye: "What if I started focusing on my goal?"
Nose: "I am great at making excuses for staying where I am, what if I could change?"
Chin: "I don't feel safe about the unknown if I began to change."
Collarbone: "A part of me is afraid to change."
Under Arm: "I'm afraid to let this “yes, but…” go."
Head: "I'm willing to change my focus and frequency."
***Now for the positive focus on the solution***
Eyebrow: "I want to feel excited about this goal."
Side of Eye: "I choose to change my focus right now."
Under Eye: "I choose to release my doubts and worry."
Nose: "I appreciate how good thinking about my goal makes me feel."
Chin: "I am willing to change my thoughts and focus."
Collarbone: "I can be positive as I begin to focus on my goal."
Under Arm: "I appreciate feeling inspired to choose a goal."
Head: "I feel inspired to choose a new direction to move in."
Take a deep breath.
Continue to tap for each negative thought that keeps you from reaching your goal. You will begin to feel a change in your energy as you tap into success and stimulate your personal economy.

As you say, we are on the ground floor of the healing high rise. The Emotional Freedom Technique is traditionally used to release the negative emotions in order to create positive change. As EFT has taken hold in the global community, people have experimented and found unique ways to apply EFT. The focus on positive change serves a purpose for all of us.
I think it would be beneficial for the EFT global community to know about the EFT TapFest 2009. It was inspired by a group of like minded individuals that wanted to acknowledge the presidential change and celebrate the inauguration.
At each time zone throughout the global community, there will be “tapping” events where you can participate in the celebration of change. EFT Tappers all over the world will simultaneously tap at noon in their respective time zones in what is surely to be the world's biggest borrowing benefits session! Some events are local and others are global. Envision the worldwide TapFest 2009 as a chain reaction, sending a wave of positive energy for change throughout the world. For more information about the events that are being hosted visit http://efttapfest2009.ning.com/
Imagine how powerful it will be with thousands of practitioners and EFT users from around the world participating. I have been asked to co-host this event with Eleanore Duyndam, Host of EFT Class online at www.blogtalkradio.com/EFTclass from 12-1:30pm PST.

I actually have a firm belief that my life is a comedy. I am not saying that to minimize what I do and how I work. What I feel is that there is two sides, or more, in everything. I can look at what is going on in my life from a place of lack or a place of strength and abundance.
I try to bring that into my work. Even when tapping with clients on issues, I try to look for parallels and see a way that I can bring humor into it. If you are really interested in using humor with EFT, David Lake and Steve Wells are excellent resources. Humor and laughing help to release energy that supports change. It takes something that is very serious and brings some lightness to it. Think about it, how often have you felt that something was a crisis and then looking back on it you were able to see it wasn't a crises at all.
In my group this week, one of the participants had her mother die that day. I felt honored that she chose to attend the group session for emotional support. Although there were tears in the group session, there was also a lot of laughter. She left feeling much better than when she walked in the door. I spoke with her the next day and she appeared to be handling her grief far better than expected due to the work that was done in a safe and trusting space. feel that humor has an important place in counseling, as well as all of life, when used appropriately and with respect.
LoA encourages you to always find the positive in every situation.
