“Before you even start becoming intentional about shifting your vibration towards alignment with your dream life, you need to be prepared to deal with the resistance that will likely show up. The failure to have these tools to do so is what accounts for virtually all perceived failure of Law of Attraction techniques or programs.” – Bob Doyle
Since the cause of all perceived failure of desired manifestations is resistance, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), also known as tapping, is a perfect match to the Law of Attraction because it literally taps out the resistance that keeps you from having the life you want.
Resistance is anything that is not in harmony with your Inner Being. It comes in the form of negative emotions such as fear, anger, anxiety, depression, and can slow your energy down. Resistance wears you down and over time, manifests physically as illness or pain.
EFT tapping helps to release resistance by balancing the energy system of the body and restoring emotional alignment. This allows the body and mind to resume their natural healing abilities. EFT often works when nothing else will.
EFT tapping is easy to learn and apply. While focusing on an issue you want to release, affirmation and reminder phrases are repeated as you tap various acupressure points on the body with your fingers. Often the process only takes minutes to achieve results. In other cases it may take a little longer if there are underlying issues that also need to be addressed.
EFT tapping can be used with the Law of Attraction in the following ways:
Negative Emotions – You can use EFT to dilute or eliminate feelings of sadness, anxiety, anger, frustration, jealousy, resentment, or any other negative emotion that lowers your vibration and robs you of your natural state of well-being. EFT tapping is an excellent tool to reduce your stress levels and restore you sense of peace.
Limiting Beliefs – People get hung up on all sorts of limiting beliefs of why they shouldn’t, why they can’t, what others might think, and beliefs about what might happen if they succeed (example: “It’s not safe to succeed.”) Tapping out limiting beliefs will help you to break the cycle of self-sabotage so you can be successful at whatever dream or desire you pursue.
Affirmations – After tapping out negative emotions or limiting beliefs, tap in at least a couple rounds of positive phrases, such as “I am worthy of joy,” “I am worthy of being happy,” “Happiness and joy are my birthright,” “I allow myself to be happy.” This has worked exceptionally well with my clients and leaves them feeling uplifted and optimistic.
Visualization – Tapping on the meridians of the body stimulates the energy flow, which allows the mind to be more open and receptive to your input. Tapping in positive statements while visualizing what you want enhances the experience and gives a sense of stronger belief that you can truly have what you are visualizing. You can use statements such as “I see myself winning the lottery! It feels exhilarating to know that I am now financially free and secure.” while you are picturing yourself with a winning lottery ticket.
Meditation – Spending time in meditation on a daily basis is highly recommended as a resistance release technique for the Law of Attraction. But if you’re like me and have a difficult time quieting your mind, try using EFT before you begin your meditation process. You can use statements such as “Even though it’s hard to quiet my mind,” “Even though it’s difficult to suspend my thoughts for 15 minutes,” or “Even though I can’t stop thinking.” Tapping is very calming and will help you to relax your body and mind for a more satisfying meditation experience.
Although EFT tapping is simple to use and very forgiving, there are a few tips that will help you to achieve more consistent results:
- Drink water before and after tapping. EFT is more effective when you are hydrated and the water helps to flush out any toxins that are being released from the tapping.
- Be consistent. Make tapping a priority and set time aside daily to focus on tapping out any negative stuff you might be dealing with in your life. I like to use EFT after my meditation time. My day always runs smoother when I include it as part of my morning routine.
- Be persistent. If you don’t get results, keep trying. There may be other aspects to explore and tap on. If a seemingly unrelated thought comes up during a round, tap on it also. There may be a connection that you are not aware of. Ask your Inner Being to guide you.
- Relax and have fun! Remember not to take yourself too seriously and keep an open mind.
Having a simple, yet powerful tool like EFT to eliminate your limiting beliefs and negative self-talk will prove to be an essential key for leveraging the Law of Attraction! After you have learned to make EFT a habit and experienced its amazing results, you’ll wonder how you ever got by without it. Soon you will be attracting everything you have been wanting into your life!
