The many uses of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)

As you have seen from previous postings, I am amazed at the effectiveness of Emotional Freedom Techniques to clear deep and long standing painful emotional states and physical pain. EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is also a great tool for anyone. All of us face small frustrations and disappointments from time to time and we can use EFT just about anywhere - OK - if you are in public, find a quiet spot or use a bathroom stall. In just about 2 to 5 minutes, you can get yourself from frazzled to calm and as cool as cucumber.

Why bother for small frustrations? Because even small amount of stress hormones cause damage to your system

Get your passion back with EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)

Hello to all of you who stop by to read my musings. Another month has gone by and even though I had resolved (resolution??) to post more often, life happened. More specifically, I have spent the last month planning a big life change. Because the change has far reaching ramifications, I needed much quiet time to weigh the pros and cons of my decision.

I was able to take a bird's eye view of my decision process. One thing that came up repeateadly is fear. Oh! not dressed as fear. Most days, it came up as reason, urging me to "be reasonable, things are not that bad", or procrastination "take your time, don't rush" even though I have been thinking about it for a couple of months. "What if you make a mistake?" came up almost daily?

If you have been thinking about making a change for a while, you may recognize your own thoughts in the above. By all means, do your homework. Don't be reckless. If you find yourself turning and re-turning the same issue in your head over and over, talk to someone. Make certain though that you do not speak to people who are stuck in their own life. One way to recognize them is that they are the people who complain a lot, those who are the eternal planners but never take action.

What does this have to do with passion? Fear and passion make poor bed fellows. Fear kills passion.

So if you are someone who wonders how to feel passion, examine how you let fear run your life.

You can start using EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) to decrease the intensity of your fears. You can learn more about Emotional Freedom Techniques on my website: .

This year's decisions

Making wishes and dreaming is easy. Even setting goals is easy. However, if you stop at that point and hope that it will happen magically, you are setting yourself up for failure. Imagine that you are at the bottom of a hill and you want to reach the restaurant at the top. Of course, you know that you have to put one foot in front of the other and start the climb.

However in the life of our goals and dreams, we often fail to take the next step, however small it may be.

What secret or not so secret wish do you have for 2008?

Challenge: Write down what your goal is and write what steps are needed to achieve it. Better yet, only write down one step you are willing to take during January, toward your goal. Just one step. If you achieve this first step before the end of January, then write what's next. Keep following this recipe until all the ingredients have been added. You will then find yourself very close to making things happen, almost magically!

If you find yourself stuck at any point, follow the Emotional Freedom Techniques ( to take care of the interfering feelings.

P.S. The beautiful woodpecker that showed up on Christmas Day came back today, unfortunately not long enough to be photographed. Maybe next time.
