Do you often find yourself wishing how it would be if your life got better? If you earned more money, if you had more time to yourself, more fulfilling relationships, more fun … Then what’s stopping you from getting there? Maybe you learned early on that when things change, even for the better, they often come with side effects that may not be so palatable. Such incidents or conditioning can instill fear of change in our minds. So even if we apparently want to change things for the better, part of us is not really looking forward to the actual change. And it keeps us where we are. How about we try Emotional Freedom Technique to tap on this internal resistance that’s working overtime to keep us stuck?
EFT tapping set up
Even though I’m stuck and it feels frustrating and disempowering, I wish I could develop the courage and insight to drive my bus into a happy, thriving future without the debilitating fear of running into unsurmountable challenges.
Even though I desparately need for things to move in a positive direction, but they seem stuck, even so I’m open to learning what else or how differently I can do things in order to unstuck myself.
Even though part of me is aching for things to change and for my life to become better, another part of me is uncomfortable about the idea of shaking things up. I wish all parts of me would team up for my highest good and happiness instead of fighing among themselves.
