Tapping to restore your connection to divine purpose

Tapping (EFT)

Tapping, also known as “Emotional Freedom Techniques” (EFT), is a new cutting-edge technique that has emerged and, in my experience, is a powerful tool for transforming the energy signal of your beliefs, thoughts and emotions, making it easier than ever before to experience resonance.

The concept of tapping may seem a little weird at first; I know it did to me. But I was open to giving it a try, because I was ready to eliminate doubts, fears and self-defeating habits.

Over the years I have found that affirmations, visualization and reframing were effective, but when I combined them with tapping an amazing transformation occurred.

My wife will attest to the fact that within a few weeks of beginning EFT I was making significant progress. I was much more optimistic and fun-loving. Before I began tapping I would wake up depressed and overwhelmed, but now I roll out of bed excited about the day. My anxiety and Limiting beliefs seem to be disappearing. I’m going after my dreams and passions.

So what is tapping? You have probably heard of acupuncture, EFT works in a similar way. For thousands of years, Eastern medicine practitioners have believed that our bodies contain energy pathways called “meridians”. These energy pathways often become blocked or sluggish due to trauma, illness, and negative thought patterns.

When acupuncture needles are inserted into the skin at certain points along these meridians, it releases energy that may be “stuck” and allows the free flow of energy through the meridians again. When the stuck energy is released, it usually clears up the problem(s) that were caused by the blockage.

Tapping works almost the same as acupuncture, except there are no needles involved. Instead, you tap lightly on the meridian end points while tuning into the problem mentally and emotionally, and this releases the stuck energy.

Tapping is still fairly young compared to other alternative treatments, but it is quickly gaining in popularity and people are getting astounding results from it. It’s being used successfully on mental, physical and emotional problems like addictions, post-traumatic stress, physical illnesses of almost every description, fears, phobias, weight problems, and even for dissonance from your divine purpose.

How EFT works

Think of an experience that made you angry or upset. If you continue to think about it, even if you try to ignore it, you’re building more and more neural pathways of stress and upset. The fact that this process gets stronger over time makes it even more essential that we interrupt the process of creating these negatively based neural connections, because any negative emotions or limiting belief will only get worse over time, not better.

Tapping interrupts this process. Tapping send signal to the brain to react with calm, not with fear or upset. It has been proven to drastically reduce cortisol levels. This in turn reduces stress. Any time you think about something upsetting , whether it’s an action that your about to take or a disturbing memory, tapping helps to neutralize it. (Canfield & Bruner, Tapping into Ultimate success, 6-7)

When you release dissonant emotional energy from your body, you improve your vibrational signal!

When your vibrational signal improves, you resonate with the divine power you want to attract into your life. So, when you tap to clear negative dissonant energies, what you’re really doing is tapping to clear feelings of anger, frustration, resentment, jealousy, fear, anxiety, and anything else that is blocking your ability to resonate with your divine purpose.

How to find true success and avoid myth-based philosophies!

Winston Churchill once said – “Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing happened.”

The chances are that many of the things you’ve learned about success and meaning are wrong? Unfortunately, there are many myths and traditions that cripple our thinking and distort our connection with divine purpose. Any idea or philosophy that runs contrary to universal laws is a myth.

One example of a myth-based success principle comes from a very popular book I was given years ago titled “The Common Denominator of Success.” The book’s premise is that the secret of success lies in the fact that successful people form the habit of doing things that failures don’t like to do. (Albert E.N. Gray, Common Denominator of Success). This myth perpetuates the belief that if we just force ourselves to do things that unsuccessful people don’t like doing, we will be very successful. Unfortunately, these types of myth-based philosophies keep people doing things that do not resonate with their divine purpose.

I speak from personal experience when I say that I have spent much of my adult life killing myself (literally), and not experiencing the  rewards and fulfillment I had hoped for. The fanatical effort I put into following these philosophies felt like running into a wall, only to  get back up and do it again and again.  A severe anxiety disorder and a heart attack at the age of 49, were the price I paid for following these philosophies. I felt less and less purposeful and more and more emotionally and spiritually bankrupt. Until I learned about dissonance I remained blocked from a life of meaning and abundance.

So what is dissonance? It is the opposite of resonance. It is when energy frequencies do not match up, or harmonize.  Unfortunately, many people live their lives in a state of dissonance. The efforts and energies they put out are not in harmony with their divine purpose. Their divine purpose passes them by without resonating, because its vibration is dissonant to the signal they are putting out.

Henry David Thoreau is credited with saying: “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.” Their songs never harmonized with their divine purpose.

Another common myth is that: “the only way you can be successful is by working hard in school and getting good grades so you can get a job with a good company.” This myth has been proven wrong by some of the most successful people in the world.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not against education, my college days where some of the best days of my life, but you don’t have to be an Ivy League graduate to align your life with amazing success, joy and fulfillment. “Top academic institutions are wonderful, but there are unrecognized benefits to not coming out of one. Grads from top schools are funneled into high-income 80-hour-per-week jobs, and 15-30 years of soul-crushing work has been accepted as the default path.”  For many people this path leads to a dissonant life of being grossly over-worked and severely underpaid, and hating every minute of it.

The secret of success has nothing to do with forming the habit of doing what failures don’t like to do, or forcing yourself to follow a path that is dissonant from your divine purpose. Principle-based success works in alignment with universal laws and principles, like the principle of resonance. Principle-based success is recognized when you find that which resonates deep in your soul. It is found in connecting with your divine purpose.

Tips for Living a Gold Medal Life! by Leila Reyes

Many people feel frustrated with the lack of fulfillment they experience in at least one area of their life. This frustration can evolve into anxiety and depression. It can snowball effecting your self-esteem, your happiness, your relationships, and even your health. You can lose your standing on the podium (a disaster to any Olympian) when your willingness to put yourself into your own life is compromised. You might experience a giving up or settling for less than the Gold Medal life you want. This is a vicious cycle and you can lose touch with essence of who you are – you can lose touch with yourself and why you’re here. Disastrous!

Tip #1 – Get into a Creative Space! Make a list of 100 things you can do that move you, inspire you, or get your creative juices going. If you can’t think of 100, then remember back to your childhood. Ask friends, family, or co-workers what they do to get their creative juices flowing. Choose at least 3 items on your list that you are willing to take action on during the next week. Share some of the items on your list and what action you take on my blog. (I’ll post this assignment on my blog, so you can share and get support.)

Passion leads to purpose

I’m posting today about some great comments from Wendy Betterini who created the Allow Abundance course

Even though it may seem risky, do what you are passionate about. Otherwise you will always be chasing after something else until you find what you are passionate about. If you don’t pursue your passions, where will you be in one year, five years, and ten years? How will you feel having allowed ten more years of your life to pass doing what you know will not fulfill you? If you can look out ten years and know that you will regret the path you chose, that is the greatest risk of all.

Focus on your passions. We all enjoy doing many different things, but we don’t necessarily feel passionate about all of them. You need to figure out which of the things you love doing are things that truly stir your passion – the things you can’t get enough of; the things that make you feel so good while you’re doing them that you don’t want to stop.

What are your natural talents and skills. What are you good at? What do you do very well? What are people always asking you to help them with? What are things that are important to you? Which causes, issues or subjects really get you fired up? On which of these issues would you like to make a difference?

Request inspired guidance! Say something like: “I intend to discover a powerful purpose for my life and I am open to insight and guidance.” Or, “I know you will show me the most perfect purpose for my life, and I know I’m going to love it!” Or, “Please show me the best ways for me to live a purposeful, passionate life.”

Divine Purpose

The Divine Purpose in Christ: Ephesians 1:3-14

God’s ultimate purpose is to unite all things alienated in the universe into one harmonious whole through the one cosmic event of the reconciling work of Christ from which all blessings flow.

The Divine purpose is to bring things into harmony and that was the purpose of the Atonement.

We find our divine purpose when the energies of our beliefs, thoughts and emotions  harmonize with our source – Jesus Christ. We are in resonance with who we are intended to be.

(Ephesians 1:1-14)

“And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment – to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ” (Ephesians 1:9-10).

Thoughts and emotions are magnetic

Fear attracts more fear, hate attracts more hate. It as if the emotions that emanate from us are a song. It is important to feel good! We could say that “feeling good is feeling God

Do you believe that events in your life happen for your good? Jack Canfield teaches of a process he terms being a “reverse paranoid.” Rather than believing the “world is out to get you,” you believe that it’s working for your good. This is a great way to create reframes. Here again we have a choice – an opportunity to use our agency. We can choose to believe that “God is out to get me,” or we can believe that “all of this is happening for my learning and experience.”

The Apostle Paul taught the same principle saying: “we know that all things work together for good to them that love God” (Romans 8:28)

Create a new belief that makes that event, person, or circumstance make you feel grateful. Gratitude is one of the most powerful emotions in connecting you to divine purpose, and it just feels good. If you believe that everything is happening for your good, you are always looking for the good in life. You will be constantly “tuned in” to the positive energy in your life.

The Law Resonance

The Law of Resonance

Resonance is a universal principle that works in our spiritual lives just as it does in a physics experiment. Here are some simple examples of how resonance works:

If we take two tuning forks of the same frequency and place them near each other and strike one of them, the sound waves will travel through the air and cause the other one to vibrate as well. We could say that they resonate with each other. However, if we use tuning forks of different frequencies the resonance does not occur. If the frequency of one matches the frequency of the other it picks up its vibrations. That is resonance! Resonance is when energy frequencies align, or vibrate in harmony.

We could also say that resonance is being in tune. A radio will pick up a radio signal if it is tuned-in to the same frequency as the signal. If you change the radio’s channel, or frequency, it will pick up different frequencies, or channels. That is resonance! So what does this have to do with divine purpose? You’ll see how this all works together as we move along.

So in order for me to experience resonance with my divine purpose, I must be transmitting an energy frequency that is in harmony with the frequency of my divine purpose.
