Introduction to Abundance
Lots of money by itself doesn’t make you abundant. Abundance is an emotional experience… a feeling we either have… or don’t. Imagine that you had piles of money... millions of dollars in bills, gold and silver coins, stacks of treasury bonds. More money that you could dream about. Everywhere you looked, there was more currency. But if there wasn't anything to exchange it for, it would mean nothing. If you couldn't trade it for anything, all the power and joy would go out of it. Imagine you are on a deserted island. Alone. You have piles of money in every denomination. What good does it do you? Without interaction and value to trade it for, money becomes pieces of paper and bits of metal. Worthless and valueless. Alone on a deserted island, you’d probably trade all those piles of money just for someone to talk to. So is it the money you crave… or the love connection? We’re not discounting the usefulness of money. It is okay to desire it, work for it, enjoy it. Just keep your focus on the fact that it is not money you want... it’s how you will feel, laugh, play, and explore with that money. Knowing this can give us balance and power in our lives… and make Abundance something you can experience NOW… not just when you “get enough money.”

What is Abundance for You?
For you, abundance may be owning a large, beautiful home. You may value the feeling of having a lot of space, security, craftsmanship, and a sense of belonging. Or, you might delight in simplicity... a smaller space that is easy to maintain so you can focus on inner and outer exploration. Abundance may be having spare time to relax and enjoy loved ones… or seek quiet time alone. Abundance is a unique expression of your heart’s desire in a given moment. What society, parents, or friends think often just confuses us to the point where we end up chasing ―a dream‖ that really isn’t ours.

Money is Still Required to Play Certain Games
If you want to play computer games, you need a computer… and electricity… and internet. Money is a pre-requisite. If you want to eat in a restaurant, you’re going to need money. In our society, money helps us be more free and secure. Anyone who has (or is) struggling with debts and tight budgets knows this is true. We just know that the FEELING of emotional distress can come just as intensely to someone making $100,000 a year as the person making $20,000. We can show you how you can eliminate the emotional distress and how to start using your authentic gifts to bring more financial abundance into your life.

Abundance Isn’t JUST Money
Health and well-being are another form of abundance. Chronic exhaustion or illness can sap our enjoyment of life and limit our possibilities. Having the energy and focus to co-create what we want, while we enjoy our bodies, is a key for a thriving life. We will help you identify and then energetically release negative emotions and stored traumas that are distressing your body and limiting your natural self-healing. Self-confidence and self-acceptance are just as important. Ever feel miserable and scared and disgusted with yourself? In those moments just having a hot lover, beach side home, nice car, great body, and a big bank account is not going to solve the problem. We know it’s possible to accept yourself and feel resourceful no matter what comes your way. What this requires are some new skills for emotional transformation... and we can help you today! Warm Wishes for an Abundant Life,

1. Feeling Safe
There is a difference between being safe and feeling safe. Our primitive brain can feel scared sitting on our couch or talking to a prospective customer… even if neither situation poses a threat. We often learn these patterns very early… and get stuck acting them out over and over again. This chronic scared feeling is a major block to abundance. Anytime you feel afraid, you’re tight and resistant... in your muscles… and your whole being. It's hard to allow acceptance and love when you’re defensive and resistant. It may be hard to even notice what's already in your life or the opportunities that are passing you by. A lot of us have reasons to feel unsafe and afraid. We may have had early experiences that ingrained in us that the world is unsafe… that danger lurks around every corner. Because of the way the brain works, we internalize those "rules" and lessons and may carry them forward, even if we live in a very different environment today. If you want to learn more about how your brain stores trauma and how that affects your life experience, check out: http://www.thrivingnow.com/primitive-brain

Tapping For Your Life
Tapping is a great way to recondition your mind and body to a new way of being. Allowing safety into your life will reduce stress on your body and bring more clarity. And tapping changes your vibration from one of lack and protection to that of well-being and openness… so you can feel safe to create more abundance in your life. As you tap, make note of any specific memories or limiting beliefs that come up around safety. For example, you may remember being threatened by the school bully in 3rd grade. Or, you may sense a fear that ―bad things will happen" if you allow yourself to feel good. Releasing the intensity around those specific blocks can open up new doorways for you. (If you don’t know how to do this yourself yet, it’s our specialty, and we’d love to help!)

Let's Do Some Tapping!
As with any of these tapping scripts, take care of yourself. Stop if that is what’s best for you. Get help if you need it. If you find that you have a lot of emotions coming up during any of the tapping, you may find our grounding exercises helpful: http://www.thrivingnow.com/grounding If you need to see a diagram of the tapping points, you can find them here: http://www.thrivingnow.com/tapping

Karate Chop: Even though I don't feel safe right now, I am open to relaxing at least a little bit. Even though my muscles are tight, and I feel threatened, there is no immediate danger right here, right now. Even though I have a habit of feeling scared and I learned this pattern long ago, and I would love to enjoy a more relaxed state of being. Top of the Head: I don't feel safe. Eyebrow: I have to be vigilant. Side of the Eye: That's how I am. Under the Eye: Isn't that how I'm supposed to be? Under the Nose: My body is pretty tired. Chin: It's hard to focus on what I enjoy. Collarbone: I just don't feel safe. Under the Arm: That's how it is. Top of the Head: But what if I could change just a bit? Eyebrow: I'm afraid I can't let this go. Side of the Eye: What if I could release 10% of my fear? Under the Eye: Would I still be safe? Under the Nose: What am I afraid of anyway? Chin: I'm so used to the fear. Collarbone: I needed it back then. Under the Arm: Is it still useful now? Top of the Head: What if I could change? Eyebrow: I do have lot more power now. Side of the Eye: What if I could relax and enjoy my life? Under the Eye: That would feel sweet! Under the Nose: I am safer than I was back then. Chin: I give my body and my mind permission to relax.

Collarbone: I'm open to noticing how safe I really am… Under the Arm: And feeling surprisingly calm and confident. Top of the Head: I allow myself to feel safe. Take a deep slow breath. (Slow breathing sends a signal to your primitive brain that all is well. Quick shallow breaths can make that part of your brain think you’re under attack). How did you feel as you said these statements? It's okay if you felt an inner conflict as you said some of the statements, or if some parts felt like they weren’t completely true for you, yet. Just write down what you noticed so you can use those insights for future tapping exercise. As you continue tapping, you may find yourself surprisingly delighted with the changes you manifest in your life! If you want more help with your issues around safety and abundance, our Group Coaching Program is designed to help. The sense of belonging and community our team members experience are powerful ways to allow your primitive brain shift and re-align.

2. Deserving
Do you deserve abundance? Really? You may think that you're clear on this one, but many of us have subconscious beliefs that limit what we attract into our lives. To find out what maybe blocking you, imagine that you already have something you want.    It could be money in the bank You might be wearing that size 6 little black dress and feeling fantastic. Maybe you have the key to your new home.

Really tune into the experience of having what you desire. Now, notice how your body feels. Do you feel completely at ease? Or is there tension growing? Notice what thoughts start coming up. Doubts? Fears? Judgments? If you run your "daydream" forward in time, does the vision stay happy and nice… or do bad things start happening? If your body feels uncomfortable or frightened while imagining that experience, then your primitive brain is resisting… blocking you from actually getting what you want! Weird, isn’t it? We want something… yet part of us does NOT!

So Let’s Do Some Detective Work
What happened in your daydream? Was it fun for a few minutes and then bad things started happening? Perhaps your family showed up looking poor and sad, demanding money. Or you "saw" your mother's face when she saw the pretty dress and you "heard" her judgments about people wasting time on vanity. Maybe you imagined being in your nice house and feeling frightened that someone would find out you don’t deserve to have nice things and take it away. Such stories are your subconscious mind's way of communicating its perspective to you. It's giving you clues to the beliefs and fears that are holding you back. You might ask yourself where you learned these "truths." For instance, how do you know that you don’t deserve to have nice things? When did you decide that? Was it when you were in 5th grade and the school bully stole your new lunch box and ruined it? Or did you drop your ice cream cone when you were 4 and get shamed for it?

Tapping to release issues and past traumas around deserving can help us attract a lot more abundance! Karate Chop: Even though part of me thinks I don't deserve the things I want, I'm getting ready to allow them anyway. Even though I feel ashamed for wanting wonderful things because I was so bad back then, I'm open to letting that go and feeling surprisingly okay enjoying abundance. Even though I never thought I deserved to have so much, I bet I could get really used to abundance in all its forms! Top of the Head: I don't deserve it. Eyebrow: I'm not good enough. Side of the Eye: There are so many people without. Under the Eye: How can I deserve to feel good? Under the Nose: I might just mess it up. Chin: They don't think I deserve it. Collarbone: I don't deserve it. Under the Arm: That's the truth. The OLD truth. And nothing but the OLD truth! Top of the Head: What if I don't have to deserve it? Eyebrow: But I have to earn it… don’t I? Side of the Eye: Maybe I could just allow it. Under the Eye: What if the Universe would like to send me gifts? Under the Nose: That would be awesome! Chin: But part of me is still tuned to not deserving. Collarbone: It was my explanation for why I didn't have it… back then. Under the Arm: Do I need that belief anymore? Top of the Head: I used to have a lot of reasons for not deserving abundance. Eyebrow: But I'm tapping on them and getting clearer every day. Side of the Eye: I'm ready to allow rich experiences into my life. Under the Eye: I'm ready to appreciate them. Under the Nose: I used to think I did not deserve them. Chin: I choose to see them now as gifts from Source. Collarbone: You don't have to deserve gifts. Under the Arm: You just say THANK YOU! Top of the Head: Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!

Take a slow, deep breath. What came up for you? Did you realize that even life is a gift, each breath a gift from the Universe? If you remembered reasons why you still believe you don’t deserve to get what you want… at least you are getting more clarity. With clarity, we can clear them out move towards what we want with a deep feeling of safety… and gratitude. If you don't feel adept tapping on these issues yourself, no worries—a lot of these issues are best faced together. Get a private session, organize or join a tapping group, or find a tapping buddy. Our Getting Unstuck program can help you through this as well. Purchase it here: Getting Unstuck! http://www.thrivingnow.com/really-stuck

3. Self-Acceptance
If we don't like ourselves, it's hard to let nice things in, no matter how much we may want them! I mean, who goes out of their way to help someone who isn’t likeable? Many of us were taught not to think too highly of ourselves (to say the least! Some people are downright HATEFUL towards themselves.) This isn’t a natural or healthy state of mind. But unresolved shame or constant criticism from ―loved ones‖ can destroy our innate sense of self-worth. When we value ourselves, it's natural to set good boundaries and care for our body and mind. Self-accepting people find it easier to allow themselves to relax and play. Healthy boundaries, self-care, relaxation, and play are all critical to our sense of abundance. Does it feel safe to appreciate yourself? Who would judge you if you highly valued who you are and what you create in the world? Was it safer back then to undervalue yourself so it didn't hurt so much when others were mean? If you would like to open up to caring more about yourself in a balanced and mentally healthy way, ask yourself… Who taught you this? Where were you? When did you decide to reject yourself before others did? Tapping on the specifics can transform the way you feel about yourself. Karate Chop: Even though I don't really appreciate myself, or even like myself very much sometimes, I'm open to figuring out ways to release these old patterns. Even though I don’t really like myself all that much, I do want to feel more loved… and maybe I can start by liking me a wee bit more. Even though I never learned to like me, I'm open to noticing things I can appreciate about me now. Top of the Head: I don't like myself very much. Eyebrow: It doesn't feel natural to appreciate me… Side of the Eye: or the things that I do. Under the Eye: I haven't had much practice liking me. Under the Nose: What if I started? Chin: Would that be safe? Collarbone: Do I dare?

13

Under the Arm: I don't notice good things about me. Top of the Head: But what if I could? Eyebrow: What would happen if I accepted myself? Side of the Eye: Would they judge me? Under the Eye: It might be more trouble than it's worth. Under the Nose: But I do want to feel loved and appreciated. Chin: What if I could start by appreciating myself… Collarbone: Just a little bit more than I did yesterday. Under the Arm: It might be nice to feel better about myself. Top of the Head: What could I appreciate about myself right now? Eyebrow: I like that I do want to feel better. Side of the Eye: And that I'm taking action right now. Under the Eye: It does take courage to change. Under the Nose: I do like that about myself. Chin: I'm open to noticing more things to like about me. Collarbone: I starting to appreciate myself… Under the Arm: Right here… right now. Top of the Head: And that definitely feels better. Take a slow, deep breath. What came up for you while you tapped? Did you remember times when you did things that you still feel ashamed of? Or reasons why you shouldn't like yourself? Perhaps a time when others rejected you? Tap on those memories and beliefs so you can allow more abundance and self-acceptance in your life. Did you notice things you liked about yourself? Wonderful! You can tap on the positive as well. It reinforces the good feelings. And it sends out a vibration of gratitude that the Universe responds to (Law of Attraction in action!) Just tap through the points as you list all the attributes of what you appreciate. You can tap on the karate chop point if you like, or not. What feels right to you?

Feel free to change the words to fit what you notice about yourself. Karate Chop: I really like how strong my hands are. Top of the Head: And my warm friendly smile. Eyebrow: I like my laugh. Side of the Eye: And how open I am to learning new things. Under the Eye: I'm so glad I like to feel good. Under the Nose: And that I'm tapping right now. Chin: I'm proud that I never gave up. Collarbone: And that I attracted tapping into my life. Under the Arm: This feels like abundance! Top of the Head: I like myself more each day. You can do as many rounds as you like. Don’t worry if negative thoughts come up – just take them as more data and energies you can tap on next time.

4. Letting It Be Easy
What if it could be easy?! Wouldn't that be great! For many of us, there are subconscious beliefs that prevent us from allowing it to be easy. We may want things to go smoothly in our conscious minds, but subconsciously we're hearing all that old baggage…  No pain, no gain!  Nothing good comes easy!  Easy come, easy go! Since our primitive brain want us to gain abundance… to have good things… and does NOT want to lose what we have… in the presence of one of these subconscious rules… easy becomes scary. Our primitive brain can sabotage anything that threatens our survival. And since that part of our brain is very black and white, it may believe that anything easy needs to be sabotaged in order to keep you safe. Have you locked your keys in your car just when things were going well? Spilled coffee on your shirt when you were congratulating yourself for being prepared and ready? ―Forgot‖ to return an important call until it was too late? Sometimes accidents do happen. But if you (or your friends…) see that you have a pattern of this kind of self-sabotage, getting rid of any subconscious blocks you have to allowing it to be surprisingly easy to get ahead is a great place to start. It can help to look at how your parents and siblings view ―life and work being easy,‖ too. Even if you don't consciously agree with them, your subconscious may have internalized their rules. Separating out what’s your and what’s theirs can put you on your own path with your own clarity. We can help. You may be surprised at how fun and easy your creative flow can feel! Whee!! Say out loud, ―I can let it be EASY.‖ How true does that feel when you say that, where 0 is NOT true at all, and 10 is totally true? Where do you feel that in your body right now?

16

Let’s do some tapping… Karate Chop: Even though I was taught that it's not supposed to be easy, I'm open to trying a different way. Even though I think I always have to struggle to get it done… what if I don't! Even though I equated hard work with abundance… that's an old rule… and I'm ready for an easier life. Top of the Head: It has to be hard. Eyebrow: You must struggle… Side of the Eye: If you want to get ahead. Under the Eye: That's what they insisted. Under the Nose: That's how they live. Chin: If it isn’t hard, how can it be worthwhile? Collarbone: It has to be hard. Under the Arm: I have to WORK HARD at everything! Top of the Head: When did I decide this? Eyebrow: Why does it have to be hard? Side of the Eye: Lots of things I value… Under the Eye: Are easier than in the past. Under the Nose: I can call NY and talk to someone I love… Chin: without getting on a horse and riding for days. Collarbone: I can warm my home… Under the Arm: without chopping down a tree. Top of the Head: What if it can be surprisingly easy? Eyebrow: A lot has changed since they made those rules. Side of the Eye: I don't use carrier pigeons to send messages. Under the Eye: I email my friends instead. Under the Nose: What if this can be easy, too? Chin: And even fun? Collarbone: I do want abundance. Under the Arm: I want to succeed. Top of the Head: And I'm ready for it to be at least a BIT easier! Take a slow, deep breath. Say out loud again, ―I can let it be EASY.‖ How true does that feel when you say that now, after the tapping (0 is NOT true at all, and 10 is totally true)? Does your body feel more comfortable with the notion that you can let it be easy?

Did any limiting beliefs come up as you tapped? Did you feel resistance? If you life unfolds with easy, peaceful abundance in every way… who might be upset (or feel jealous… or left behind)?

5. Celebration
What are success and abundance without celebration? It feels wonderful to celebrate. To receive congratulations. To be proud and happy of what we've accomplished. But if there are any hidden blocks, you may rush through the after-party. Or you may not allow yourself to really appreciate what you have already. In some cases, it may feel safer not to succeed at all! Do you feel comfortable feeling really good? Celebrating? Sharing your successes with others? For some of us, we learned early on that showing joy was dangerous. What we treasured would be taken away… or someone would shut us down with harsh words:      You are getting way too big for your britches! Shhh! Don't make other's feel bad! You may be laughing now, but you'll be crying tomorrow! The higher you fly… the further you fall. After joy… sorrow.

(Tap tap tap tap tap!) Harsh words can be traumatic. As can crashing from joy to despair. If you were feeling happy and really connected with your feelings of accomplishment… and then something bad happened… you may not feel safe celebrating even decades later. Celebrating is like the bubbles in champagne. Without celebration, life becomes flat (and never tickles your nose). What happened to your bubbles? Karate Chop: Even though I'm afraid to celebrate too much… and I have my reasons… I’m open to feeling safe enjoying my bubbles. Even though I'm afraid someone will take it away if they know I really like it… and that was true back then… I choose to feel comfortable celebrating now.

19

Even though I'm afraid of crashing after I celebrate, I choose to feel surprisingly good right here, right now. Top of the Head: But it isn't safe! Is it? Eyebrow: Someone will get mad. Side of the Eye: They'll be jealous. Under the Eye: Or resentful! Under the Nose: And they always take it out on me. Chin: They might try to take it away. Collarbone: It's better to be quiet and not enjoy myself too much. Under the Arm: Even though that's so sad… and definitely not much fun! Top of the Head: It isn't safe to celebrate. Eyebrow: Or is it? Side of the Eye: I would like to revel in my success. Under the Eye: Enjoy good feelings. Under the Nose: I bet it's safer than it used to be. Chin: Part of me still feels nervous. Collarbone: And that’s okay. Under the Arm: I’m in the process of feeling safer when I celebrate. Top of the Head: I am stronger now. Eyebrow: And I have better boundaries. Side of the Eye: Would it be okay to celebrate a little? Under the Eye: It's such a good feeling. Under the Nose: And it sends wonderful vibrations to the universe. Chin: It wasn't really safe to rejoice back then… Collarbone: But my life is so much better now. Under the Arm: I do have a lot I could celebrate… Top of the Head: And I've decided to start right now! Take a slow, deep breath. How safe does it feel to celebrate now? Did you notice a shift in the tension in your body? Is there anything you fear would happen if you celebrated? Does it feel safe to tune into one thing you're proud of? If that feels frightening, remind yourself that you can always

keep tapping! One way to loosen up is to find a private, safe place and tap while you celebrate. (Just tap around the different points as you talk, cheer, and shout). If there are specific rules, beliefs, and memories getting in your way, try some Inner Tapping. See our free tutorial here: http://www.thrivingnow.com/innertapping And if you have old traumas you're ready to shift, our Childhood Trauma Starter Set can get you off on the right foot.

6. Trust
Trust allows us to open, relax, and feel comfortable connecting. Trust flourishes in an environment of safety, respect, and freedom. Alas, many of us were not raised in such an environment… or have been hurt and betrayed as adults. That can make trust a real challenge… until we heal those traumas. If we don't have some trust in our lives, vigilance and stress are going to deplete our energy. And over time, constant stress makes us feel overwhelmed and frazzled. Even for those of us who feel very loved and safe, the experience of trusting and opening is an ever-evolving process. For those of us with painful experiences still haunting our systems, the idea of trusting ANYONE or anything feels ridiculous. When we don't trust, we believe we must plan for every possible disaster. We're not saying that planning is a bad thing, but hoarding everything from antique cookie cutters to scraps of wrapping paper is a clue that your energy is out of balance. (For many people, clutter arises from a core distrust that there will EVER be enough. Clearing Clutter with EFT addresses this: http://www.thrivingnow.com/clutter ) Trying to protect yourself from everything and every possible hurt is impossible. But a lot of people try it. That's why fear-based marketing works so well. People will buy what they think will keep them safe. The tapping approach we use focuses on emotional resiliency… so that when painful experiences come (as they do), you feel empowered and strong anyway.

Isn’t It Stupid to Trust?
When we become more trusting, we actually become smarter! We can better feel into a situation and know more clearly what (and who) is safe… and what isn’t. Our brain shifts out of fear mode. Our intuition becomes more powerful. Our heart feels more open to loving safe people, while at the same time more protected from unsafe energies.

Karate Chop: Even though I don't trust much, I'd like to start trusting more and feeling more relaxed. Even though it's hard to trust, I have a lot of reasons not to, I deeply and completely accept all of my feelings. Even though I'm not sure I can trust, I'm open to seeing the safe and pleasing things the universe sends my way, and maybe re-evaluate my decision not to trust anything. Top of the Head: How can I trust?! Eyebrow: It isn't safe! Side of the Eye: I have to be on guard… Under the Eye: Or I'll get hurt… Under the Nose: Or tricked. Chin: Bad things will happen if I relax… won’t they? Collarbone: How can I rely on anyone…? Under the Arm: Or anything? Top of the Head: I guess I trust there will be air to breathe most of the time. Eyebrow: And there is usually water to drink. Side of the Eye: The sun rises MOST mornings… Under the Eye: And it sets ALMOST every evening. Under the Nose: My heart has been beating ALMOST my entire life. Chin: What if I could trust my heart to do its best? Collarbone: What if I could trust myself to be okay… Under the Arm: Even if something bad happened? Top of the Head: I used to be overwhelmed… Eyebrow: And really scared. Side of the Eye: And there ARE a lot of things I can't control. Under the Eye: But I am getting stronger… Under the Nose: And I'm learning new ways to take care of myself. Chin: I don't need to be vigilant all night to make the sun rise in the morning… Collarbone: Or to make my heart beat. Under the Arm: Maybe I can turn those things (and more!) over to the universe to take care of… Top of the Head: And allow more trust to flow into my life. Take a deep slow breath. How do you feel now after the tapping? Does your body feel a bit more relaxed? Did some SPECIFIC fear come up? We love helping our clients to trust themselves, because that’s where Personal Power is reclaimed. Learning to trust again, or to trust more deeply, is a journey. So take note… What stands in your way right now of relaxing into life?

7. Allowing Love
Love nourishes us. Love fills our core with peace and warmth. Love is Abundant. And yet… if we were raised in an environment where the natural flow of love was constrained… where attention and affection were limited and rare, we end up expecting a world where there isn’t much love. We close off the channels in our energy system that thrive on love energy. I mean, why keep your heart channels open if love is never going to come? Love is learned (ideally) through early bonding with our mother and father. Yet, our parents may have been over tired, over worked, and overwhelmed. They may have had their own unresolved traumas and active addictions. They were probably doing their best to cope with their own stuff, all the while passing on what they had learned about life… the good, the bad, and the ugly. Even if our childhood was warm and affectionate, other negative experiences later in life may have left you stuck, closed off, and afraid. Our brain looks for evidence that matches our beliefs... and filters out that which does not fit. Once we become conditioned to expect lack and loneliness, we tend to see that all around us. Walking in the mall we’ll see all the lonely, discouraged, closed-off people… and miss the lovers holding hands and the happy friends completely! By tapping and tuning into appreciation and connection, we re-open the love channels. When we notice and appreciate something, we attract more of it (by the law of attraction). Just by noticing it and saying ―Wow, how nice, that felt really good,‖ we send out rockets of desire to tell the universe that we want more. And when we feel relaxed, loved, and cared about, it’s much easier to appreciate and connect with everything around us. The simple act of washing our hands can change from a task to be rushed through… to a beautiful connection between our body and the warm clean water, the fresh smelling soap, and the fluffy towels. We become more abundant in every mindful moment like this. We are allowing love. As we tap, notice what comes up for you. Does it feel safe to allow love in? If not, when

did you learn that love hurts? Or does it hurt most when love goes away? What rules and beliefs to you have about love? Feel free to change the words in the tapping script if other words feel more comfortable. Some people like asking God for help, others like ―Source‖ or ―Universe.‖ Use what feels right to you. Karate Chop: Even though I feel shut down to love, and I don’t notice very much around me, I’m open to seeing more of it and feeling a bit more love in my life. Even though that feels a bit scary… I’m not sure it’s safe to be loved… I really enjoy the feeling and I’m open to allowing more love every day. Even though I learned that there isn’t much love in the world for me… and that was true back then… what if I could see that I’m in a different place right now… and attract an abundance of love and warmth for me? Top of the Head: I don’t allow love. Eyebrow: At least not as deeply as I’d like. Side of the Eye: That’s the way it’s been. Under the Eye: I thought that was how it was supposed to be. Under the Nose: What if that’s not true? Chin: What if there’s a whole universe of love… Collarbone: And I just have to tune in? Under the Arm: I really do want to know I’m loved and lovable. Top of the Head: I ask the Universe to help me with this. Eyebrow: God, please show me… Side of the Eye: In lots of little ways that I can easily notice… Under the Eye: That you love me. Under the Nose: Can you help me connect? Chin: And let go of this fear? Collarbone: I want to feel loved and safe. Under the Arm: I could really use some help allowing love into my heart. Top of the Head: Maybe this isn’t as frightening as I thought. Eyebrow: I can just allow love. Side of the Eye: All I need to do is accept it. Under the Eye: And enjoy it. Under the Nose: A thank you might be nice. Chin: I can just relax and allow love to flow to me. Collarbone: Source loves me and wants the best for me. Under the Arm: I am loved. Top of the Head: And it feels sooooooo good! Take a slow, deep breath.

What do you notice? Remember, any reaction is okay. Your thoughts and feelings (even of inadequacy) can direct you towards what’s still blocking you from feeling wonderful! Can you think of little ways that the Universe can show you that you’re loved? What if the traffic light changed to green as you approached it? Or a great parking space opened up? Or a friendly stranger smiles at you as you walk by? Could that be God smiling through them… to YOU? When we allow in the little things, we start opening up our heart to the love all around. As we practice, love becomes our way, our joy, and the firm foundation of all the Abundance in our lives. If that is what you are looking for, we invite you to join us. In our Group Coaching Program you’ll find lots of connections and insights to appreciate. You will learn how to tune into (and trust) the vibrations of safe, loving, healing support … and attract more and more of what you want into your life. We look forward to engaging with you.

About Us
Rick Wilkes and Cathy Vartuli have been working together since 2007. Their common interest in freeing people from limiting beliefs and fears—combined with a mutual interest in supporting people as they move towards abundance—has evolved into the cocreative business partnership and friendship that you see demonstrated here. Rick was one of the four expert practitioners in the EFT documentary The Tapping Solution. He has presented on emotional freedom, trauma release, pain relief, and abundance at a number of conferences with Carol Look, Karl Dawson, Sue Beer, Robert Scaer, Rue Hass, Bob Doyle, Jennifer McClain, Nick Ortner, and Emma Roberts, and he has been interviewed many times for The Tapping World Summit, Living Energy Secrets, and EFT Hub Radio among others. He is also a co-author of Freedom At Your Fingertips. Rick is a certified AAMET trainer, emotional release bodywork and massage therapist, and has worked with over 2000 clients with EFT. He also has over 25 years of entrepreneurial experience in co-creating successful internet and software publishing businesses. Cathy got her Masters in Physics at SUNY Binghamton and her PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Florida. She has been using EFT since 2006 and has worked with over 800 clients. She loves helping people reclaim their confidence and inner power. Cathy is a certified AAMET Advanced Practitioner. She has been interviewed for EFT Hub Radio on Romance, Body Image, Marketing and other subjects. Rick & Cathy combine Energy Tapping (EFT) and the Law of Attraction to help people create thriving lives. They are especially interested in how traumas and limiting beliefs are stored in the mind and body, and they have evolved their own comprehensive approach to unwinding blocks in a practical way that connects each person to their own authentic strengths and wisdom. Many coaches take the ―intellectual‖ and ―doing‖ approach to life. By combining an awareness of the body-mind and emotional components with vibrational technologies like Tapping (EFT) to clear blocks and old traumas, you can supercharge your focus and attract abundance at new levels. And make it fun and playful, too! They've worked with successfully with thousands of clients, and now they’d love to work with you, too!
