Bubbles of Beliefs: How Our Thoughts Influence Our Reality Through the Law of Attraction

Our beliefs are like thought bubbles of energy that float off into the ether, attracting to ourselves those positive and negative forces that create the small and big events of our lives.  At least, that is what I've come to consider as a truth, even though I have my moments of doubt about my ability to attract what I want in my life, versus what I absolutely do not wish to see happening in my life.  There are many variables in creation but deep down I've come to the conclusion that we unwittingly create from not only the thoughts and feelings of our conscious mind, but from our energy matrix of sub-conscious beliefs, too.  In fact, it is our sub-conscious mind that sends out messages to the autonomic systems of our bodies more than we could possibly understand in a linear, logical manner.  Our bodies are quite often protected in ways that we cannot fathom, but sometimes the "energetic software program" in our subconscious minds becomes so dysfunctional based on chronic false beliefs, fears and traumas, that our body retains these unprocessed, discordant energies as if they were truth.  And that's when the imbalance occurs.

The bubbles of thought that we create in our moment to moment living are producing current realities that make our future opportunities and oppressions. How we treat ourselves and others from the stance of the present moment is critical to how we create, even though we may be totally unaware of our part in creating our unwanted negative outcomes.

The interesting thing about handwriting analysis is that I can see the subconscious fears and beliefs that the sub-conscious and conscious minds are projecting into the ethers of the universe; your movement of the ink on paper, when studied by a graphologist like me, reveals the inner workings of the author's thoughts and beliefs.  And, if it is true that our thoughts create emotional feelings, and our feelings send out vibrations of accord or discord based on the frequencies of those thoughts, it serves to reason that memories and thoughts that come from a place of sadness, grief, anger, fear, and greed cannot attract people and events that resonate with the vibrations of love, joy, peace, awe, and well-being.  To explain, there is not enough alignment between the two polar opposites of thought and feeling and the individual is left with this push-pull sensation of frustration and disempowerment about the fact that their desires are never met within their 3 dimensional reality despite all of their repetition of affirmations and wishes.

So, the next time you get yourself into a funk and find yourself sinking into negative thinking, picture your thoughts floating around you like bubbles and how their low vibrational content may be pulling negative situations and events to you like a magnet.  Catch yourself and search for the next best thought you can possibly create to lift you out of the low frequency so that you will raise your vibration, thereby raising your life experiences.

Act as a young child might be, gladly skipping and reaching for the highest feeling in the moment- a playful thought that will generate pure joy and spontaneous contentment.

We all have baggage, the "stuff" that we carry around with us in the hopes that someday our outdated clothes, or books or shoes will come back into style.  Have you ever looked in your closet and thought, "I don't wear 1/4 of these clothes on a daily basis!"  I know I've been subject to that kind of thought, and it makes me wonder why I walk away from the closet as if some faeries are going to arrive at night and sort my closet for me and save me from my accumulated stuff.  Well, I suppose that is the way our bodies are when we literally and figuratively get 'clogged' with negative experiences, thoughts, and beliefs that further confirm our inadequacies in the world.  Suppressed emotional feelings and beliefs are the true root of feelings of being overburdened and stressed and exhausted in our lives.  If we only just allowed ourselves to literally feel the emotion of sadness, grief, loss, sorrow, anger - even rage - I imagine that many of us would avoid the chronic symptoms of back and neck pain, shoulder pain, leg and knee and hip pain, dizziness and fatigue, etc.

The mind-body connection is quite profound, and as the handwriting healer, I can see literally in your handwritten words those fears and false, self-diminishing beliefs that block the essence of your truth, the part of you who says,"I am wonderful!"  Wouldn't it be great if we recognized our magnificence as we awakened each and every day we have here on Mother Earth?  Wouldn't that be such a relief to not be criticizing yourself and/or others who don't meet up to high expectations?  I for one have been guilty for remaining stuck in the incessant thinking about what I did wrong in my life; the questions about how I could have been a better person, how I could have been more successful and how I should have made different choices, do nothing to support the authentic aspect of me who is doing her best, despite the challenges experienced.

If I were to go up to the persons waiting for their train at any local depot, all staring ahead with their baggage carriers and suitcases, would they release their 'things' for a hefty price tag if I asked, or would they smile and say that they love what they have, and are feeling completely content with their lives?  It might be the human condition after all, but my theory is that we would rather stay with the issues that at least we have learned about and become accustomed to over time, even if we do not like their presence.  There is something about uncertainty and the fear of change that causes us humans to abhor change, even if it's for the better in the long run.

What if you were willing to change your beliefs in favor a new, positive and enthusiastic beliefs that bring excitement, love and spontaneity into your life?  Would you do it?  What if you could clear all of the gremlins of the ego from your energy field that tell you you are not good enough and should not even try to succeed with your latest idea for a business?  What if you could tap into the strongest part of you that tells your self-limiting beliefs with confidence to "take a hike!" allowing you to move forward with joy and anticipation of better days!  With EFT Tapping, I believe that the old, stuck emotional thought patterns that represent previous failures, fears and restrictive experiences can be unclogged and let go for good.  In their place, you can conduct EFT Tapping to re-program into your energetic bio-field or matrix, the new positive dreams you have for your future whereby you feel abundant, relaxed and authentic in your relationships, your finances and your career.

It doesn't mean that you forget what happened to you when you lost that well-paying and rewarding job, or that great date, but EFT Tapping provides a tool for neutralizing the emotional charge attached to the memory that serves to keep you stuck in helplessness and lack of confidence and even despair.  In fact, I have a theory as an energy healer that the trapped emotions that your sub-conscious mind has repressed (in order to protect you) create an "emotional smudge" in your bio-field (or auric field) that contains the unprocessed discordant energies from the traumatic event.  This "smudge" only serves to recycle you deeper into emotional and behavioral dysfunction, pain, and perhaps disease.  It's like a ball of dust that settles into the corners of your psyche, taking up room and not doing much of anything to help your cause.  EFT Tapping is the vacuum cleaner that removes all of those dust bunnies of pain that cover up and clog your best self and therefore, your happiest life.

So let's get the EFT Tapping vacuum out and start clearing away the dirt and dust of lost dreams, sad memories and depressing emotions! You'll feel so relieved to be clear again, charting new directions with optimism and cheer, and yes, so much less baggage!

Three Frogs Tapping - How to Tap Into Your Fears & Leap Into Your Positive Future!

Three Frogs a Tapping!  

The EFT Tapping Points Procedure for Leaping Away From Fear Into Freedom!

EFT Tapping points are easy to learn and you will find that while you may feel a little silly doing this tapping in public, in the privacy of your own home or office, it's really no big deal.  Further, the benefits you gain from Tapping far exceed any of the strange looks or sarcastic comments from those who happen upon you while Tapping.  Frankly, I can think of more embarrassing situations to worry about - LOL!  

So, let us begin with a quick tutorial about the EFT Tapping Points (EFT is an acronym for Emotional Freedom Technique) that are usually used in the process.  I say "usually" because depending on the practitioner, they may create their own system to augment what was already defined by founder Gary Craig and others.  The system is simple and is helpful even to young children and the elderly who may not follow the protocol exactly.  But getting the gist of it is usually sufficient enough when used with clear intent and gentle tapping on the points.

So, here is the process delineated for your tapping procedure:  You can use one hand or both hands, it doesn't really matter.  Use what is comfortable for you and remember to go lightly on the tapping, being sure not to pound your head or facial points.  Tapping is very safe and effective, but you really should be gentle so as not to cause your body any undue harm.  

Before You Begin Tapping:  

The foundational formula for why EFT Tapping works is based on the fact that the cause of negative emotions and beliefs is a disruption in the body's energy meridian system; suppressed or repressed emotional issues that are unprocessed and stuck in the energy field surrounding the individual interfere with the body's energy system, thus creating internal conflict and its resultant physical and behavioral disharmonies.

MPI:  Determining Your Most Pressing Issue

Establish the top issue that is bothering you at the current time.  It can be anything from a personal relationship issue, anger concerns, PSTD, a disease or pain that is causing disruption in your life, problems with business or money, and a whole host of other daily concerns that are popping into your mind.  If you are working with me using handwriting analysis, you might prefer to receive my handwriting analysis assessment about your subconscious and conscious beliefs that are hindering you in order to have the most powerful transformational tapping sequence.  If you are doing this on your own, I would certainly encourage this method.  Just be compassionate with yourself and try not to be too critical of what you're doing.  EFT Tapping is quick and effective, but more chronic, longstanding issues might take a little more patience and investigation before you hone in on what your subconscious mind is holding.  And, if you are not feeling ready to pursue this process on your own, contact a professional counselor, physician or health practitioner who can guide you safely.

Preparation:  Once you have identified the issue or concern that you wish to tap on, also called your MPI or Most Pressing Issue,  you would benefit from giving the issue a number of intensity, selecting on what is called the SUDS Scale (Subjective Units of Distress) numbered between 1 - 10, 10 being the most distress you can imagine feeling.  In this way, before you do each round of tapping, you will be able to compare the relative success of the previous round of tapping on your issue.  If you have say, an "8" (10 being the highest distress) on an issue of giving a work presentation on round #1, and then when you begin a repeat of the tapping points for round #2 on this same issue and your distress went down to a "5" then you know that you have a little way to go in clearing the anxiety about public speaking at work, but you're feeling better than before you began - so you are making progress.   Usually, unless you are tapping on a highly traumatic issue for you, the SUDS scale will lower to a "2" or even a "0" but it might take several more rounds of tapping to neutralize the emotional charge attached to the memory of that most pressing issue you are tapping about.  

Disclaimer:  Use your own discretion when tapping on traumatic issues without the help of a trusted practitioner or counselor.  Some unexpected sub-conscious memories can surface during EFT Tapping and I want you to be sufficiently strong to address these issues without re-traumatizing yourself.  EFT Tapping is generally a very safe technique, but when in doubt, listen to your instincts and contact your health physician or counselor for support.

the EFT tapping points

Typical EFT Tapping Points Used During an EFT Tapping Session Round

Karate Chop Point - Located at the outside palms below the pinky finger.  This is where you say your set-up phrase, such as, "Even though I get very anxious making public speeches, and I must do a talk for work next week, I fully and completely accept myself." 

Top of Head - Tap lightly on the tip top of your head moving along lightly and tapping where a central hair part might be (if you have one).  Remember to go lightly and tap for 6-12 taps at most per round.  Taking the above example, you can say aloud as you tap lightly on the top of the head, "I am so overwhelmed thinking about my speech I have to give at work next week."

Eyebrow Points - Then, go to your eyebrows where they meet the middle of the bridge of your nose. Tap 6 times lightly on these points saying something like this, "The pain of getting in front of people and talking."
Side of Eye - Tap lightly on the corner of the side of your eye (or both eyes with both hands) in a gentle manner as you say, "I get so anxious about public speaking."

Under Eye - Again, tap lightly 6 times under your eye, saying, "I can't stomach getting up and speaking in front of groups at work."

Under Nose - Tap 6 times lightly and say something like, "I am frightened to speak in front of my boss and co-workers."

Chin - Tap Lightly on your chin point 6 times (right in the indentation below your lower lip) saying, "I get all sick to my stomach and lose my breath when I am speaking publicly.  I get faint." (or whatever you feel in the moment about how your body reacts to the thought of giving a public talk at work).  Follow your instincts when doing these tapping rounds.

Collar Bone -  Tap 6 times on your collar bone where the slight bony protrusion connects with the base of the front of your neck.  Say something like, "I hate giving public talks and I am no good at doing them" while tapping lightly on your collar bone.

Under Arm - Tap 6 times lightly saying something like, "I'm afraid to do this talk and I am dreading it."

Post-EFT Tapping SUDS Assessment:  Do an internal scan of your emotional feelings to assess if the tapping made you feel the same, better or even worse about your core issue.  If you feel worse, there may be another aspect of the issue that needs to be addressed.  For instance, the true core issue might have to be about the fear of judgement from your work peers.  And then, you might begin tapping for round #2 by focussing on your relationships with your work peers and how they make you feel.  Begin by doing a new SUDS assessment between 1-10 and proceed in tapping on all of the points for round two, three and four (use your intuition - you may only need one round of tapping) as needed and as delineated above.

How Do You Feel About Your Life? Focus In On What You Are Grateful For Now!

A Quote To Help You Return To Your Center

"The power of love is unimaginable.  When we remember how to love unconditionally, we allow ourselves to experience what we and God (within us) are really made of.  There's no reason why we, as God's creations, cannot remember who we really are.  God is everywhere, in everyone, and Love is our true nature."  Lesson III, Relax, You're Already Perfect, by Bruce Schneider, Ph.D.

Thomas Edison - Focus, Intelligence, Enthusiasm for Work, and Sexual Frustration

Thomas Edison is probably one of America's most famous historical celebrities given that if it weren't for his intense scientific mind, I would not be writing to you with this method.  The discovery of electricity is no small feat, and from what the history books say, Thomas Edison experienced many failures before he was successful in generating and retaining electricity.

Look at his beautiful handwriting.  In some ways, he too has large spaces between his sentences given the small, focussed lower case letters in his handwriting.  Those large spaces denote a desire to be separate, if you will, from society and all of its social norms and expectations.  I don't know much about Thomas Edison, but from his handwriting I can share that he was a strong introvert who showed an objective emotional stance whereby he was unlikely to express emotional feelings, and was perfectly happy working alone doing research with his kite and key.

In fact, his letter "y" indicates some concern, and if he were in front of me asking what he should do for his custom EFT Tapping, I think I would recommend that he focus on his emotional feelings about intimate relationships and perhaps his feelings about money, too.  The "y" here shows some feelings of guilt, frustration and lack.

Interestingly enough, our handwritten signature often mirrors our passion; in his case, look at the overarching pen movement in his capital "T" for "Thomas" and you can just see him looking up to the sky and imagining new possibilities for generating power!

How Your Need for Privacy and Space Shows In Your Handwriting

Did you ever see handwriting like this where the spaces between words and/or sentences are rather large in comparison to the writing?  This is a sample of someone that needs space between themselves and others in their environment, particularly with those who they are closest to; don't be surprised if they ask you to leave the room when you're trying to engage them in some sort of social activity when they're focussed on a nice book, or their favorite tv show.

This sample shows a person who is upbeat (shown by the baseline of the words moving from left to right in an upward slant) which almost always is a positive sign that a person is very optimistic and looks at the glass as half full, rather than half empty.

But as much as this handwriting author may be upbeat, they need their alone time and most likely, will get quite anxious if their 'space' is not honored.  I would venture to guess that this person loves private walks alone or with their pet on nature trails, nearby the ocean, or in the mountains.  If they're in the city, they find a special oasis where they can sit and contemplate the sounds of birds in the trees, or the beauty of water nearby.  This is a more poetic person, sensitive to sounds and stimulation such that they need the respite to rejuvenate themselves.

If this is you and you're wondering what to do EFT Tapping for, it just might be a social relationship issue...just my theory :)  If you're dealing with TMS back pain, I would advise you to consider what person or situation is impinging upon your space.

The Power of the Pen: How Your Handwritten Notes Show Your Fears & Strengths

The Handwriting Healer

Reading between the lines, I help you to see the fears that are thwarting your goals and dreams, sabotaging your best intentions while causing you to be bewildered and perplexed about why you never seem to get that long desired opportunity at work, or the man or woman of your dreams, or the special recognition that you feel you deserve.  Do you feel like you try and try and try, and at the last minute, your project is tabled, or your computer crashes during an important presentation, or the business lead goes belly up before you even have the chance to prove yourself? This could be caused by hidden subconscious beliefs and thoughts that dismantle your conscious mind's dreams and goals.

As a handwriting analyst, I can read between the lines and identify the doubts and fears
that your subconscious mind is so aware of,even if you consciously believe that you have
all the confidence that you need to move forward with your hopes and dreams.  You see, the mind is very powerful as your protector, and it's always looking out on your behalf for the tiger or other threat that may overtake you in an instant!

Unless you are being chased by a tiger in the woods and you need that extra adrenaline to move into the fight or flight response in order to live, most fears experienced in our modern day society are much more insidious.  Intellectual, social and chronic negative attitudes create most of our daily doubts and fears; such fears are often treated as scary emotions suppressed or repressed by the individual to accommodate societal behavioral expectations and mores.  And these submerged
feelings can do quite a number on your sense of self-regulation and control.  In fact, you may not
even know that you have these feelings becauseyour subconscious mind has decided that feeling
physical pain or discomfort is preferable to processing these frightening unfelt emotions that lurk inside your body.

Negative fears or worries about the boss, about your work, or about your family or children are often presented by your conscious mind as true based on the filters with which you are now using - frames of reference created perhaps in childhood or your early teen years that tell you to address a different environment having a different set of challenges with the same old solutions used in the past.  For most of us, we unconsciously relate to emotions as true that were created in the mind as a distorted belief system that says you are in trouble, when indeed you're not.  This is not to negate your intuitive system that gives you hunches that you might be losing your job or your lover.  Rather, what I am saying is that your core beliefs may be tainted by early life erroneous societal, familial or individual teachings and experiences that simply do not correlate to your current situation nor serve your highest interests in the present moment.  It simply does not work in the long run.  Covering your emotions with workaholism, excessive fitness, shopping or more addictive behaviors only serves to further block the true cause of your angst, depression or malaise while serving the purpose of fear, which is to create more fear.

These ruminating fears then cause you to recall past remembrances of traumatic or disappointing experiences such as abandonment, rejection, or neglect. Submerging those emotions of loneliness, rejection and isolation into the psyche, it is no wonder that the subconscious mind works so hard to later surface these debilitating feelings in favor of your freedom.  It's much like holding a beach ball under water for weeks, months or years, expecting the secrets to remain below the surface, all the while expending all of that energy to keep dark or negative emotions hidden beneath the water's surface.

So how do we release these fears that perhaps we don't even know that we have in the first place (because they're being repressed)?  With a pen and a journal, you can accomplish much.  Handwriting analysis is an empirical science that shows a trained graphologist like me what your fears and beliefs are, and how they're being manifested in your life.  For instance, you may feel that you need to be perfect with every work project that you do; you are very conscientious and pay attention to every detail.  You cross your t's and dot your i's with complete focus and care. Your boss, on the other hand, may believe that minimalism is enough.  Can you imagine the strain within your psyche that generates the internal conflict between the inner work bully (your perfectionist self) who demands a perfect product, and the boss in front of you who just wants the project done to meet the minimum standards, without all of that polishing you are known for doing? The internal conflict alone can be the source of your back pain or neck pain or nausea - whatever your mind is generating, there usually over time is a sense of dis-ease that develops in response to all of that internal strife.  And to add fuel to the fire, you blame yourself for the pain which causes more guilt and anxiety and amplified pain!  It's a vicious cycle!

To get off of this treadmill of pain and dissatisfaction with your life, I think I can be of assistance.  Get out your unlined journal and start writing about your life and your feelings in order to release the beach ball of pain that you've been submerging for months, years or even decades.  You deserve freedom from pain, and the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, and then another, and another and another until you've committed yourself to caring about how you feel.  You are worthy of love and abundance and life's joys.  It's time to reach down into your authentic, brave self and find the part of you that knows that life doesn't have to be endured with pain and sadness.  Let's go on this journey of healing together where you handwrite and journal your thoughts and feelings and experiences as I help you to see the self-sabotaging beliefs in your handwritten letters and words that are overwhelming your greatest, most talented and resilient personality.  Let's release all of those doubts and fears further with EFT Tapping customized to your specific story, because none of us are exactly alike and your handwriting shows the truth about what you need to heal.  Your life matters!  Contact me now for a consultation about how you can free yourself from pain and move into freedom and joy!
