my name is Chip and I’m a born loser. In fact my whole family were born losers.Preface Hello.” My father was a born loser. My mother was a born loser. Chip. “Hello. 4 . except of course my brother and sister who had it better because Mom loved them more.

But this is not a book about how big a loser you are. This is a book about attracting abundance. Being a born loser and attracting abundance have nothing to do with each other. The fact is, it doesn’t matter if you are a born loser or hot stuff. You can still attract abundance. They are not mutually exclusive. There are four possibilities here. • • • • You can be hot stuff and not have abundance. You can be hot stuff and have abundance. You can be a born loser and not have abundance. You can be a born loser and have abundance.

“But wait,” you say. “You don’t understand. I have... ‘issues’...” And I say, • • You can be a born loser with issues and not have abundance. You can be a born loser with issues and have abundance.

“No. You still don’t get it. I have ‘limiting beliefs.’ As long as I have limiting beliefs I’ll never have riches. But I can become rich if I work really hard at eliminating my limited beliefs, and once they are gone money will flow, baby, money will flow.” And I say,

You can be a born loser with limiting beliefs and not have riches. You can be a born loser with limiting beliefs and have riches.

“Let me try to explain this so you can get it. For me, money and self-worth are tied together. I have low self-esteem because I don’t have money. I don’t have money because I have low selfesteem. It’s a vicious cycle. I need to find a way to break this cycle if I’m going to become rich.” Look, will you quit arguing with me? • • You can be a born loser with low self-esteem and not have money. You can be a born loser with low self-esteem and have money.

You can be a complete idiot. You can be a complete idiot with issues and a born loser with low self-esteem and limiting beliefs and still be anything you want. You can be President of the United States. Wait a minute. For a second I thought I flashed on an example. The point is, it’s not about any of those things. It’s just about where you put your attention and how you act as if.

About this book Now that we’ve covered that point... You are reading Part I of The Born Loser’s Guide to Abundance, Make a Transformation Using EFT. This part, called Visualizing the Process, gives you my ideas and theory to get you started on your path to your dreams. It is offered free. In the near future I will produce Part II, called Getting Nitty and Gritty, which includes a lot more EFT exercises and step-by-step methods to get you through the process. That one you’ll have to pay for.

Introduction
“EFT, what is that?” EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques - techniques you can use to eliminate the “charge” from emotions you live with. Pssst. This book assumes that you already know the basics of EFT. But never fear, an additional short book (by yours truly) was included in the email with this book. It’s called The EFT Quick-Start Method. You can learn what you need to proceed. So scurry off, read that book, and come back when you’re ready. We’ll be here waiting. ***

You know you want abundance. low selfesteem and limiting beliefs. “Thanks. Distraction is the problem Look at it this way. but why do I need EFT if I can have issues. and still have abundance as long as you put your attention on abundance and act as if you have what you want. You can imagine what it is like to have abundance. and still have abundance?” It’s because you have issues. Don’t worry. But the second you place your attention on your limiting beliefs (which is an unfortunate habit that Born Losers tend to have . You can have your limiting beliefs.and hopefully this book will help rid you of it). It’s a paradox. you get sucked into that vibration and act as if the belief is your reality.” I know.Welcome back. “But you said. and limiting beliefs.. 8 . You can taste it. You then manifest the limiting belief. EFT is very effective at neutralizing them. etc. to the rest of us it didn’t seem like you were gone at all. All you need to do is move into the reality. You can feel how you feel when you are abundant.. low self-esteem.

How am I supposed to do all that?” This book will help you do it. To get to the vibrational state of your goal accomplished. You will also have to ignore the mental limitations adopted from your parents. and your experiences. Your thoughts and emotions produce a vibration to which the Universe responds. So. and then resume putting your attention on your goals and acting as if. and . 9 .as long as you don’t let those things distract you . you can use EFT to lower the intensity to the point where you are no longer distracted. You have to make the emotional transformation from where you are now to the vibrational state of your goal accomplished. “I’m freaking out here. If these things do become a distraction. you can have issues and limiting beliefs and even be afraid. at about this point you feel fear and stop. Here’s the thing. society. issues and low self-esteem. And you get distracted by your limiting beliefs. you will have to recognize and overcome your fears as well as eliminate the distractions of all the emotional obstacles that kept you from achieving this goal in the past. Your thoughts and feelings revert to the comfort of habit.But do you do it? Chances are.still have abundance.

“Well. limiting emotions and mindsets in four ways: • • • • Slowly work your way through your obstacles Slowly work your way through your obstacles with the help of a coach (I recommend me) Go really fast Go really fast with a coach Generally speaking. I thought I wanted to get there fast. One method is faster. Or you could get a run at it and crash through the brush. Approach at your own speed.. When you snag you can stop and pull them loose. being careful of all the prickers and thorns.” Two Tasks No matter at what speed you intend to pursue your riches.. the faster you work through your obstacles. you still have to accomplish two tasks: 10 . The other method is less painful. You could wind your way through the brush. Suppose you are on one side of a thicket and you want to get to the other.You can overcome the fear. Both methods get you to the other side. the harder it will be on you. then continue through the thicket until you get to the other side. knocking it down and tearing your clothes on the thorns until you reach the other side.

Make the transition from who you are now to someone who thinks. 2.” and be there. “But didn’t you just say that all I had to do was act as if?” Okay I admit it. I’ll just get up and walk across the room and I’ll still end up with the vibration of “me sitting on the other side of the room. and take action. feels.” Wanna race? 11 . Napoleon Hill outlines them in Think and Grow Rich: create a desire. It is theoretically possible to simply change your vibration and manifest your riches without going through Napoleon Hill’s steps.1. Omit any of these steps and you might as well throw in the towel. It is also theoretically possible to change your vibration from “you sitting on this side of the room” to “you sitting on the other side of the room. make a plan.

This feeling of connection will help you to understand the process you are going through and help you make choices in the actions you take. but establish your connection to the divine. • Meditation #2 (10 minutes any time): In this exercise.

More importantly. imagine your goal fulfilled. imagine yourself running that business. (Some ways to connect: Go within and quietly ask to feel love flowing through you. if your goal is to run a lucrative business.• Meditation #1 (20 minutes first thing in the morning): In this meditation. simply connect with the Universe or God or your higher self. Use any technique or prayer you are comfortable with. See yourself outflowing with love and confidence as you meet with clients. Notice what you are doing. notice how you are feeling.

–Napoleon Hill 15 . and do that more often. Roll Up Your Sleeves Remember. The universe responds to the vibrations you emit through feelings. both those you love and the ones who have helped you. acknowledge things for which you are grateful. you can start finding ways to feel them now. The more you feel exactly the way you will when your desire is fulfilled. the way the Universe stepped in and made a connection you had not seen. the faster the universe can accommodate you.If you identify the feelings you will have when your desire is fulfilled. Acknowledge the surprises. The more you appreciate the things you love. no more effort is required to aim high in life. Acknowledge your successes. • Meditation #3 (10 minutes before bed): In this exercise. Acknowledge those things that make you feel good. than is required to accept misery and poverty. Acknowledge the people in your life. to demand abundance and prosperity. Notice what you are doing when you feel that way. Acknowledge all the things that went right for you today. the more you are in alignment with them and the more the universe can give you.

our content differs). all that can be conceived of. Wells outlines the process of manifesting what you want as follows. The Law of Attraction The Law of Attraction is a fundamental principle of the Universe. an Australian EFT Practitioner (although. Here we will use a variation of Napoleon Hill’s framework that was developed by Steve Wells. It exists in and outside the realms of time and space.” Take heart. The Universe as defined here with a capital “U” represents all that is. 16 . using EFT to eliminate emotional obstacles: • • • • • • • Step 1: Decide what you want Step 2: Identify your fears and doubts Step 3: Set goals Step 4: Clarify your values Step 5: Make your plan Step 6: Commit Step 7: Take action “Well. Read on. it doesn’t look like I’m going to get out of a whole lot of work using this system. in a variation on a variation. It will be easier than you think. and includes all states of consciousness as well as all that exists.When you embark upon the course outlined by Napoleon Hill. has existed or will exist. that is the time you roll up your sleeves and get to work.

So the original version looks more like this: As you vibrate.” Abraham describes the Law of Attraction in terms of vibration.com/store. so you become. (Click here to download the original version of Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich http://www.chipeft. The popular version is. coined the term “Law of Attraction.a word metaphor. 17 . so you become.Some people refer to it as God.that people in a human state of consciousness can understand. and vibration in terms of feelings. “As you think. The Law of Attraction is as fundamental to life as gravity is to the planets and stars. People have a misconception about the Law of Attraction. and tells us that our emotions are our guides in determining whether we are on the right path. Napoleon Hill’s original text used the word vibrate. can handle. if you will . The word vibration was also edited out of a popular movie on the subject. the ignorant public. Abraham is using words .html#Think) Abraham. But the concept behind the words is deeper and greater than our language can encompass.” For some reason. known through Jerry and Ester Hicks’ work as Abraham-Hicks. publishers and distributors in the media think that this half-concept is all we. Like any teacher. This word has been edited out of recent editions.

“Getting a little abstract here. our true being simultaneously exists as Soul. outside the realms of time and space. “What exactly does that mean to me?” In theory. The way we create is through vibration. emotions or illusions.” just like that. emotions. and illusions of reality in resonance in with this vibration. Bring ’em on. We as Soul do have awareness and we can create. “Baby steps sound good. or Source Energy. We vibrate. health or 18 .” Although many teachers bring out the principles of the Law of Attraction in the context of creating abundance. teachers like Napoleon Hill and Abraham have created logical steps to lead you through these changes in your belief system. or as a Spark of God or the Universe. we can instantaneously shift our consciousness and create a new version of “reality. and the vibration manifests thoughts. or as our Higher Self.” Here’s my version. While we run the movie of our life. if we change our vibration. Soul has no thoughts. Therefore. for most of us to significantly change our vibration requires such a profound shift in our belief system that we have to take baby steps. because those are part of the realms of time and space. In practice. the Law of Attraction can be used with regard to relationships.

the true purpose of learning the Law of Attraction is to teach us the skills that will lead us back to the Source. but for some of us.” For those of you who hold the belief that you can’t be rich and spiritual at the same time. however.

“I know what I don’t want!” Most of us really want to get rid of the problems in our lives. we tend to put much more attention on what we don’t want than on what we do want. We don’t want stress over paying bills. We don’t want whatever 20 . But frankly. We don’t want limitations in our job or business.Step 1: Decide What You Want This step seems easy: decide what you want.

Make that feeling part of Meditation #2. walk through the area where you want to live and picture yourself there. Identify that feeling. Let’s start by re-framing the negative into a positive. but what we do not want to feel that drives us. If it’s a house. What kind of house? However. We may look at a nice home or car and see no way of getting it. giving. We might wish we weren’t alone. but what we don’t want that we tend to focus on. or even the relationship with another person. we can come up with a dollar figure. We will not have the sad feeling of not being able to afford something.

Make it your focus to feel the success and contentment of the dream as it is fulfilled. maybe even do some exercises in a manual.the more likely we will achieve our goal. now.

Let me put it this way.the more important it is to us .These negative motivators can be an obstacle in Meditation #2 (imagining your goal fulfilled).) But what if I don’t really want anything? You do want things or you wouldn’t be reading this book. or are you determined to do whatever it takes to receive your abundance? “You tricked me into coming around to your point of view there. If you are one of these people. Their distractions can be so entangled they feel powerless. Are you content to dream about abundance.” Will you do what it takes even if it means you actually have to do the meditations? (Pregnant pause. The trouble with some people is that they don’t believe they can have anything. The feeling is why you are doing it. So in your meditation.

The more you build on this relief. if and when you are feeling depressed and abandoned. “Ah. you will bring on more experiences of relief.’” The Born Loser’s Guide to the Law of Attraction As you know. 23 . according to the Law of Attraction. rather to seek out what it is that gives us a sense of relief. When you think of them. the Universe responds to your vibration. If you focus on that sense of relief. not a distraction .a ‘diversion. a character developed by Douglas Adams. When you’re in balance there. you get a sense of relief that you are not in their shoes. you will bring on experiences that increase and reinforce your negative emotions. Abraham advises us not to try to jump to the top of the emotional chart all at once. If you vibrate with negative emotions. If you vibrate in abundance. think about Marvin. read it anyway. If you are not one of these people. One thing you can count on: no matter how bad you think you have it. you will have experiences that increase your abundance. the faster you can turn your life around. go one step in the direction that feels like relief. So.

“I’ll do it. The fact is. as part of an experiment. Marvin was one of 5 crew members of a high-tech starship.” Soon Marvin would have the other machine convinced that life as a computer just wasn’t worth living. Marvin was so depressing to be around that the crew gave him menial tasks just to get rid of him. In some ways Marvin’s affliction was a good thing. Marvin would call the foe’s computer to have a “meaningful conversation.” he was given menial tasks by the other crew members. this tactic backfired on the crew because wherever Marvin went. but I won’t like it. SCC. the Heart of Gold. programmed robots with personalities so they could better interact with humans. ex-president of the galaxy. 24 . At first.” he would say.Marvin Marvin is a one-of-a-kind prototype robot developed by the Sirius Cybernetics Company. Marvin was programmed with depression. The enemy’s ship was rendered powerless when the computer system committed suicide. Even though he had “a brain the size of a planet. Marvin felt he was under-valued as a crew member. the ship’s systems would shut down to avoid interfacing with him. more powerful enemy ship would get within communication range. captained by Zaphod Beeblebrox. Eventually the ship’s systems learned to function while ignoring Marvin. Whenever a larger.

About the time they figured this out. tired and hungry. which was located on the very spot he was standing only 500 plus thousand million years into the future. Zaphod and crew figure out that the restaurant is strategically located on a planet that is best suited for viewing the universe’s destruction . Zaphod got separated from Marvin and. discovered he was actually in communication with his starship.the very planet Zaphod was stranded on. “What are you doing in the parking lot?” asked Zaphod. Marvin called. So when Zaphod told the ship’s computer to take him to the nearest restaurant. right? This story is about Marvin. after which they enjoy the spectacle of the universe being destroyed. 25 . Restaurant patrons come from all eras of history to enjoy the 5star dining. You remember Marvin. at the end of it’s life cycle. Afterwards. no water.

He ordered the ship’s computer to take him to the nearest restaurant. implodes. There was nothing but sand and dirt . the ship took him to Milliways.

“Five hundred and seventy-six thousand million. Marvin had been waiting. “The best conversation I had was over 40 million years ago. The third 10 thousand million years I didn’t enjoy at all. So while Zaphod had been transported to the End of the Universe. Marvin worked another eternity parking cars in the time loop that existed those two hours before the end of the universe. And that was with a coffee pot. five hundred and seventy-nine years.” After being stuck on the barren planet.” said Marvin. think about Marvin and 26 . when time was finally about to end. “and the second 10 thousand million years were the worst. So the next time you think you are starting to feel a little depressed. I counted them all. left to spend the rest of time on a barren planet.“Parking cars. first. Second. “The first 10 thousand million years were the worst. After that. too. I went into a bit of decline.” He continued.” Zaphod and the crew went to the parking lot to find out what happened to Marvin. Marvin was. In other words. he was given an endless job of parking cars at the restaurant where time kept repeating over and over again for the pleasure of the patrons.” Marvin is the ultimate example of how the Law of Attraction provides beings who vibrate with feelings of depression something to be depressed about. three thousand.

then you can let go of the anger with EFT. When you start to feel hope. See if you can find a little relief. 27 . not the depression. If you feel anger or revenge. Let the universe respond to your relief. Marvin’s story was synopsized from The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. So let yourself feel that anger and take back your power. the emotion that might feel like relief could be anger or revenge. Abraham goes on to tell us that if we are feeling depressed or powerless. If you shame yourself because you think good people do not get angry. then you give up your newly-gained power and revert back to powerlessness. or you let others shame you because they feel bad when you are angry. Anger and pain give you a feeling of a little bit of power. do not judge yourself. by Douglas Adams.what happened to him.

you have some emotional obstacles to take care of. But EFT can erase the real. There are already lots of good books and systems for getting rich in every way under the sun. “Bummer. so you can get on with your life unencumbered. Emotional Obstacles Through the course of this book we’ll address many types of emotional obstacles so that you may recognize them and handle each as it comes up to distract you from living your goal: • • • • • • • • • Financial programming from your past Your emotions associated with money Your decisions.Actually.” It follows then that if you want to increase your money flow and rise above your comfort zone. vows and pacts about money and wealth The fear of failure to achieve your goal The fear of achieving your goal The downside of success Your yeah-buts about whether it can happen Gaining insight Clarifying your values 30 . underlying reasons why you’re not there already.

Order off the right-hand column of the menu or get indigestion over the expense. Then tap on the eight tapping points using the reminder phrase: Money doesn’t grow on trees.

Each time a limiting feeling arises. It is important to address every emotional aspect of the incident. Her mom has never bought her something cool 33 . And they will. These feelings. Here’s where you may need the help of an EFT practitioner. The most efficient thing to do is to “take them out” as they arise. She thinks. For example. We can get them if you like. The fourth and youngest child in her family. try to recall an incident or image that evokes this emotion.” Julie’s heart soars. Her mom unexpectedly says. She is in the store with her mother and ogles a pair of cut-off blue-jean shorts. Use EFT to work through the emotion. at about eight years old Julie’s selection of hand-me-down clothes ranks her as less than cool. “Oh. but let’s say this feeling is as much as she knows so far.Emotions From Our Past Associated with Money More difficult are the emotions from our past that we have associated with money. there’s a core issue behind this feeling.

she can almost taste the elated feeling of being accepted. Mom insists on putting the shorts back. and says the shorts were mis-marked. we can get to a number of emotions that Julie might tap on: • • • • • • sadness at having lost the shorts so she couldn’t fit in with the other kids powerlessness that her mother put them back anger at her mother for putting them back shame for not being enough to deserve the shorts shame for not being as important as principles disappointment that the world is unfriendly 34 .

Julie is crushed. Julie learned several “lessons” from this incident. Partly out of frugality and partly out of righteous principles. Trembling with anticipation and holding the shorts all the way to checkout. To Julie.

Even though I was powerless and couldn’t do anything to help myself. As Julie taps on these phrases and clears them out.a core issue behind the core event: • • • • I’m sad that my mom didn’t want four kids and couldn’t handle us I’m ashamed that I’m such a burden I’m sad that I don’t deserve to get what I want I’m sad that I believe I’m not worth anything And so on. I deeply and completely accept myself. 35 . I deeply and completely accept myself. And so on. other issues might come forward that weren’t obvious before: • • • • I’m ashamed that I’m not good enough to get what other kids have I’m angry that my parents didn’t teach me that I could earn what I want I’m bitter that my mother didn’t care about my needs I’m sad that I wasn’t worth the expense to my parents And the kicker .We can use EFT to diffuse this core event by tapping on each emotion: Even though I’m sad that I didn’t get the shorts. and I really wanted them so I could fit in with the other kids.

Vows and Pacts Julie’s world changed that day because she made a decision: “Don’t get your hopes up. each should be explored and tapped on.. a vow changes the course of our lives. ideally with help. Decisions. you can’t have it anyway. Plenty of planting.issues. A child who is cheated 36 .As these issues clear. A decision is one of three ways we limit our experience through a conscious or unconscious choice. how much of those . The other two are vows and pacts.” which became mentally shortened to “I can’t have that” any time she sees something she wants. Explain again. A vow is when you make a promise to yourself. not every stone needs to be turned over for the garden to thrive. Like a decision. Julie remembers a lot of good things that her parents gave her. She feels a sense of peace and resolution about the whole thing so she can move on. tending and harvesting can happen in the available soil. She incorporated this decision into her belief system so neatly that she still avoids shopping today. “That’s heavy. But as explained before.. She gains an understanding of the circumstances that her parents were in.. do we have to handle to become abundant?” When issues arise in a natural way as part of the process..

“Just a little tiny thing for your mom to ask of you. In our current life we successfully kept money from getting between us . vow or pact as the result of a core event.” A vow can also be made to another person. as my mother did after my older brother died when I was four: “Promise me you’ll be good just like Jesus.” The vow was followed by a decision that I had to be perfect. as in the case of my wife above. 37 .” A pact is an agreement on a spiritual level made between two or more people. it needs to be changed. If the decision affects whether or not you can get what you want. Two people might make a pact never to let money get in the way of their love for each other. For instance.out of a prized possession by a friend may vow to “never trust anyone again. as my wife and I did in a past life (for those who believe this) when social obligations of our monied class jeopardized our relationship.that was one way to look at it! Often someone will make a decision. That decision or vow changes the person’s belief system and creates a pattern of behavior. a distraught mother might ask a child for a promise.

and change it into a statement that does. The first step is to transform our core belief into a statement that is more supportive. we tap on the negative statement to release the emotions associated with it. we can transform it to: The Universe will give me all that I can imagine. Pat Carrington.that no longer supports you. vow or pact . We say this set-up phrase three times while tapping on the karate chop point: Even though I decided I can’t have that. Then the 8-point tapping sequence is done in three rounds. For example. These two statements give us the basis for our set-up phrase. I now know the Universe will give me all that I can imagine. if we decided: I can’t have that. The idea of the technique is to take one of your core beliefs .a decision.The Choices Technique A good way to change a decision is to use the Choices Technique developed by EFT master Dr. In the first round. which is a combination of our past belief and our new choice. 38 .

I can’t have that. In the second round, we tap on the new choice to establish it in our consciousness. I now know the Universe will give me all that I can imagine. In the third round, we alternate. For instance, tap on the eyebrow with I can’t have that. Then tap on the side of the eye with I now know the Universe will give me all that I can imagine. Then tap on the under the eye with I can’t have that. Then tap under the nose with I now know the Universe will give me all that I can imagine. And so on. It is important to use an even number of tapping points so that you always end on the positive choice statement.

Other Help Another tool you can use to get a head start in this process is to go through the exercises in Dr. Carol Look’s book, Attracting Abundance with EFT. (http://www.chipeft.com/store.html#Look) This book will point you in the right direction as to what types of issues you may need to deal with. However, the book by necessity deals with general issues. Dr. Look could not address every issue for every person. You have to take the initiative to identify your core issues and experiences and deal with them. Again, look to the help of an EFT practitioner to untangle the mess. “You keep saying that. Don’t people use EFT to help themselves all the time?” At this point, let’s talk about needing help. No matter who you are, you have a subconscious agenda. You aren’t aware of the agenda because it is subconscious. However, your agenda can be very evident to someone who knows what to look for. I’m sure you’ve seen examples. A person may date all the wrong people and wonder why their relationships keep turning out badly. Their problem is obvious to you, but they don’t see it. A

Giving Back You also have to decide what you are willing to do for your goal. Even worse.” Pick a goal that is uncomfortable yet achievable. you must believe that it is reasonably possible.000 to make $53.

“Value for value? How do I know whether what I’m offering is worth what I want?” The value doesn’t have to be in balance in terms of the Universe. if you give me a million bucks I’ll be good. you are not going to manifest enough. “And I could change that belief using the Choices Technique. Not that I’ve ever said that.Universe. This giving is in addition to giving up those emotions that have kept you stuck where you are. it has to be in balance in terms of your own belief system. what are you willing to give back? Praying. You have to provide some sort of service.” In fact it has the inherent vibration. Value for value.” The Universe will respond to those vibrations and give you more need of money and more evidence that you’ll never get it on your own and you don’t deserve it. “God. “Heh-heh. “I need money and I know I’ll never get it on my own.” 44 .” doesn’t cut it. So you can either provide more service. or change your belief to accommodate more abundance for what you offer. If you believe you are not doing enough.” Add to that the vibration that “I am not good and I don’t deserve the money.

The more you push beyond your comfort zone. How I feel about what I’m doing determines whether it is right or wrong. That means I’m the authority on knowing which decisions and priorities match the vibration of my goal. In other words. your fears will be stronger. These fears will take one or both the form of: • • Fear of not achieving your goal Fear of achieving your goal 45 .When you believe. the Universe will respond in kind. like the light passing through a magnifying glass to start a fire. and vibrate that you are giving fully. I like this idea. “Hey.

” Frankly. but knowing that doesn’t change your emotion. not deserving.

You got me pegged. not good enough.that you were not good enough . guilt. Your desire to do something already contains the keys to its achievement. shame. Let go of your own mind games and visualize the perfection in your creation. Feelings of unworthiness speak of core issues. too sick. not smart enough. Like all of nature. doomed to failure. You know this unworthy feeling is bunk. “Ouch. keep up with the meditation exercises. Someone fed you a line . and on and on. self-pity.” Once again. you are a perfect creation of the Universe just the way you are. “Visualize the perfection in my creation .and you swallowed it. overweight. if I could just wrap my imagination around it.

Then it may still hurt a little. if you sit down to meditate after just having hit yourself on the thumb with a hammer. you only have to take out enough so that you are not distracted. again?” The point is.

Being rich and being good are not mutually exclusive. take the core belief and transform it into a statement that is more supportive. you know that having money will not change those things that are fundamentally good about who you are. So will the fear of becoming greedy or climbing on the backs of the poor. Again. You simply will not let yourself become those things. there are four possibilities: • • • • You can be poor and be evil You can be poor and be good You can have money and be evil You can have money and be good “This pattern is starting to look familiar. it’s a lot easier to gain or lose money than it is to flipflop between good and evil. But understanding that you will not become evil does not diminish your unconscious fear. then you will be afraid of turning into an evil person by becoming rich. Use the Choices Technique mentioned above to transform the belief into something more empowering.If you believe that rich people are evil. This fear will cause you to sabotage yourself. Rich people are bad 48 .” Frankly. For example. In fact. When you stop to think about it.

Our set-up phrase. The government will tax you. “I was wondering when you were going to get to that. or trap you in some corporate or political plot to take away your riches. Even though I believed rich people are bad. Your spouse or kids will spend it. I now know that I am a good person and no amount of money can change that. 49 . fear says someone is going to try to take it away. will combine our past belief and our new choice.” If you have money. and finally alternating them. ending on the positive choice statement. People will rob you. first on the negative statement.can be transformed into: I know that I am a good person and no amount of money can change that. next on the positive statement. used while tapping on the karate chop point. Then we go through the eight-point tapping sequence three times. Another aspect of the fear of achieving your goal is the fear of becoming a target. kidnap your kids.

If you are enjoying your new riches. Your friends’ vibrations will likely stay the same. A core event may lie at the basis of your fear. Unfortunately. it’s just that when you become the different person you need to be to attain your goal. The good news is that you will attract new friends who will vibrate in harmony with the new you. You’ll still like them and they you. use the Choices Technique to restructure your beliefs. it is not the money that attracts these dire circumstances into your path. You can speed up the process of obtaining wealth by seeking out those people now. the Universe will accommodate that as well. Use EFT to take out that fear. The Universe responds to your vibration. Define your fear and tap out the intensity. They may no longer be attracted into your life. because they don’t vibrate in harmony with you. It may not have happened to you. “Yeah. your vibrations change. it may have happened to your parents or your grandparents. I was gonna say. that part can be true. If you are vibrating the fear that someone is waiting to take it all away from you.However. Lastly is the fear that you will lose your friends if you become rich. watching what they do and vibrating the way they vibrate. it is your fear and beliefs that create these situations. the Universe will respond by giving you more.

When you fear success. making a plan and taking action aren’t enough. “Heh heh. but it doesn’t work out. look for times in the past when you have felt that way. whether for one of the above reasons or any of countless others.” Dr. Carol Look tells us to look for the “downside. like 51 . You feel like you are doing everything right. but you don’t let yourself get it. you tend to sabotage yourself. I guess that’s why the Law of Attraction gets the credit for making my efforts work: setting a goal. Something always goes wrong. and see if you can identify an event. You know what you want.” Ask yourself the following questions: • • • • • • • • • What is the downside of my success? What will happen if I succeed? Who will I become if I succeed? What will I have to do if I succeed? What will happen to me if I succeed? What will happen to my friends and family if I succeed? What will I be afraid of if I succeed? What will I lose if I succeed? How will I feel if I succeed? If negative emotions surface.

The unspoken version of the affirmation would go something like this: I am so happy and grateful that I make one million dollars every year – yeah-but who are you kidding? 52 . use the Choices Technique to convert them into something more useful.not the spoken affirmation . then you probably have a “yeah-but” . Use EFT to tap on the aspects of that event. If limiting thoughts arise while asking the above questions. I am so happy and grateful that I make one million dollars every year. Remember. and you are not even on the road to making one million dollars per year. but it’s not a matter of positive thinking. use the Choices Technique to change it to a more empowering statement. not thought.

It’s the un-spoken belief .Julie not getting her shorts. the Universe responds to vibration.what Gary Craig would call a tail-ender. Affirmations do work.that does the work.

While you are tapping on the first statement. “Got me again.” but the vibration is “Yeah.” These yeah-buts can be tapped out using either a straight round of EFT. alternating: I’m so happy and grateful that I make $200. To expose these yeah-buts.000 per year. a yeah-but might come up: $200.in a variation of the tail-ender technique by Gary Craig .

It was demoralizing and changed your life. clear those as well. Once you have this event cleared.000 per year. tap on all the aspects. sister.Even though I believe $200.

Now. Then go back to the original affirmation. if I’m working toward my goal. I deeply and completely accept myself.000 per year is out of my league. This process may take several days to accomplish. I’m so happy and grateful that I make $200.” 54 . while you are tapping on that statement you might remember a time when someone told you that you were not that smart and you should just take typing and become a secretary. “Several days? Well. Keep cycling it through until no more emotions or yeah-buts are associated with the affirmation. Work through the different emotions.

Work those through as well. Now go back and do the whole process over for the reverse affirmation: I’m so happy and grateful that I don’t make $200. go back and tap through the sequence.000 per year. to be sure it’s all clear and positive. Give Me Insight EFT practitioner George Duisman shared with me a technique that I have adapted for this book. 55 . See what comes up.The goal is to strip away the negative emotions and limiting beliefs from your affirmation. Many powerful variations can evolve out of his technique. I’m so happy and grateful that I make $200. so that when you say it. what you will feel is how happy and grateful you are that you make $200. I’m so happy and grateful that I make $200.

Even though my plan has gaps. Even though it scares me to approach [guru’s name] with my idea.” Even though I don’t know what I’m feeling. Basically. This is useful while working through the yeah-buts.In the Give Me Insight technique. 56 . Then you tap the first round on the problem (I don’t know what I’m feeling). As George says.

So.the brain must search through those other 4 billion pieces of data until an answer or the path to an answer is found. your brain selects the sensory images that support and recreate your world-view. searching through the data and making connections. In other words. and you act like a millionaire. the brain will work diligently. Likewise. until your goal is achieved. However. As long as your concept of the world remains the same. “Hallelujah!” 74 . and you feel like a millionaire.and focus on the question . when you create a goal and maintain your focus on it and vibrate in harmony with it.

CDs.” You can’t just wish your life better. This is a step up from wishing and a positive step toward manifestation. lessons and study guides. What is your level of commitment to obtain that goal? Some people wish they were a millionaire. My mom used to say. Oh I wish I were a millionaire. and we practice attracting. 76 . you have to become that which you desire and vibrate in resonance with being it. At the very least. This is the stage where we set our goals and do our affirmations. You have to do your part. This is the stage where we learn about the Law of Attraction.Suppose your goal is to be a millionaire. Then I could pay all the bills. “Wish in one hand and spit in the other and see which one gets full faster. and a Playstation® for the kids and other nice things. We don’t have a lot of success because we haven’t actually done anything differently. we start to adjust our thinking. We start to notice our fears and belief systems and use EFT to take out the barriers. This is the stage in which we go out and get the books.

We do the research and determine just how we’ll proceed.” 77 . However. Becoming a millionaire is not the ultimate destination. We know we will do whatever it takes to make our goal happen. this is the point at which we start movement. We create our plan.Some people decide to be a millionaire. “The crow jumps off the wire. How many are left? Answer: Three. First. Some people plan to be a millionaire. Two crows decided to leave. but rather a step along the way to more things to come.

Use the Choices Technique to restructure any limiting beliefs into beliefs that will empower you. feel and do what millionaires do. I want to be a millionaire.Some people assume they are a millionaire. I am committed to being a millionaire. I wish I were a millionaire [or your ideal goal]. talk. Notice what you think and feel. We walk. It may take a couple of days to work through them. I plan to be a millionaire. Here’s an exercise.. I don’t know if I am that committed. and act like a millionaire.

She creates plans like a millionaire would do. “I see.” 79 . you gotta watch your back. if I don’t get a job. What is real. we don’t eat. A person who is being their ideal thinks. their reality may be totally different.The most direct path is to jump to the last level of commitment: being. Because she does. Because of this. she achieves her goal quickly. she creates goals that a millionaire would create.” “If you want to get ahead. “reality. like a millionaire does.” can be a rigid perception. people tend to make distinctions between what is real and what is not. “Way to go!” Imagination and the Sliding Scale of Consciousness So how do you do it? How do you change your vibration from where you are now to where you want to be? In order to navigate and make sense of the Universe. But I might not see it the way you do. “The reality is.

She creates a difficulty when she approaches the problem as if she were going to the store.” she has to get from here to there. If reality is in the eye of the beholder . Likewise. The difficult part of making this change lies in our perception.that is.” while an Easterner may see Earth as the ultimate illusion.

The problem is.000 per year. and that we are in the process of moving reality from $50. reality represents all that of which we are conscious. Sometimes we place our attention on imagining the possibilities. Mary’s perception that being a millionaire is not part of her reality.000 Mary to Millionaire Mary. There is also an assumption that reality is a fixed point. being a millionaire already became a part of her reality as soon as she considered the idea of becoming one. In other words.

Sometimes we place our attention on our dreams and goals. and we act as if that is true. She can develop that part of herself. In the case of Mary. It’s not a matter of looking for it there. Sometimes we place our attention on where we are stuck. one I call the Sliding Scale of Consciousness. In this model. is putting it out of her reach. because it is already here.

There is no duality. the anchor lines can be cut using EFT.000 Mary and some of the time on Millionaire Mary. she can place her attention some of the time on $50. success or failure. There is only where you put your attention. The emotional pains act as anchors to hold Mary’s vibration at the lower end of the scale.

Of course. by placing her attention upon Millionaire Mary and acting as if she is Millionaire Mary. Mary’s state of consciousness. the lower end of the scale moves up and the whole scale shifts to accommodate her. making the shift easier. because Millionaire Mary and $50. “I like this picture. When Mary places her attention on Millionaire Mary and acts as if and vibrates in resonance with Millionaire Mary. There is no getting it right or getting it wrong. This does not have to be an all-or-nothing deal.Millionaire Mary. which also makes the shift easier. Mary can use the Choices Technique to alter her limiting thought forms. 82 .

For example.they need to be completed.” 84 . create a task list. It doesn’t get better. except it does not schedule the tasks. “To Do by 6:00 PM: Quit using to-do list.” You can. You cannot feel powerless and do what it takes to achieve your goals. We then do as many of the things on the list we can on the first day. as a part of your planning. But we have to keep on schedule. so we work a couple extra hours and we still end up rolling over our tasks. Living a life where we fail day after day creates a vibration of failure and leads to powerlessness. To-do lists create in our lives failure after failure after failure. “And appreciation. Pretty soon it is all so overwhelming that we become depressed. If we could not finish one day’s tasks in one day. It is simply there to organize the steps to achieve your goal. A task list is like a to do list. A task that takes days or weeks can be divided up into smaller chunks so you can complete them quickly and feel some satisfaction.

Spend some time on your hobby.” Tony’s alternative to the to-do list is brilliant and simple.” He was joking. even the small ones. pick two things you can do that will profoundly improve your life or move you toward your goal. Perhaps de-cluttering your desk would be the greatest liberator of your success. if you are trying to do your taxes and have no calculator.
