The Vibration of Abundance

Dear EFT Community,

This is part of EFT Master Carol Look's four part series on Attracting Abundance with EFT.

Part 4 of 4: Blessing tapping


Introduction

 

A huge part of my Attracting Abundance with EFT e-book and paperback revolve around expressing gratitude and appreciation for the little and big “items” (friendships, objects, the sun, pets, laughter etc) in your life. Both the tapping sequences and the abundance games in the book center on this expression of appreciation. I have direct experience that these processes work wonders for shifting the energy towards abundance and attracting what you want flowing into your life! I have even started a new series of f-r-e-e-e-e teleclasses called “Gratitude Parties.”

For years now I have used my Daily Gratitude List as a part of my tapping for myself and in classes. I just continue to tap while I am naming what I appreciate. This has several major beneficial effects:

* I raise my vibration and feel good

* I bring up surprising tail-enders that are then neutralized with EFT

* I remember how good my life really is…

Remember, it’s the feeling of abundance or wealth that actually produces more abundance in your life. This is the simplest and most often overlooked piece of energetic work with building prosperity.

The most effective words to start the process for me are, Thank you, Universe, (or Thank you God/Spirit/Higher Intelligence etc.) As in basic EFT, you want to be very specific about what you are grateful for and what you want in your life. (A “lot of money” or a “new boyfriend” aren’t very specific and could get you in a lot of trouble. Any “new” boyfriend doesn’t narrow the field down very much J !!)

Below are 5 variations I particularly enjoy on this theme of appreciation and gratitude:

 

(1)Expressing Basic Gratitude, part 1: Thank you, Universe (God, Higher Power, Spirit, Higher Self) for the blessings I have in my life RIGHT NOW.

(2)Expressing Basic Gratitude, part 2: I LOVE____________ or I APPRECIATE_________________ or I feel GRATEFUL FOR_____________________. (You may do this exercise as a “list” or as a daily walk or jog, but add tapping while you express the appreciation. Also, try both of these styles as a Gratitude Letter to “the Universe” for all the evidence of prosperity in your life.)

(3)Bringing the Future Into the Present:“Thank you, Universe (God, Higher Power, Universal Intelligence, Source Energy, etc) for bringing me_____________.”

 

(4) “Yes!” tapping to help you feel inspired. (It has a very different energy than “No!” as you will see.)

 

(5)“Blessing” Tapping

Part 1 of 4 - Expressing Basic Gratitude

 

This part of the series will include the first two variations listed above:

Expressing Basic Gratitude, part 1: Thank you, Universe (God, Higher Power Spirit, Higher Self) for the blessings I have in my life RIGHT NOW.(Name what you appreciate that is in our life already.) You may do this exercise as a “list” while you tap.

 

Start on the karate chop point as usual, and do a regular round of EFT. Suppose you have been aware of feeling exhausted and having low or no energy recently.

 

Even though I feel exhausted and tired all the time, I deeply and completely love and accept myself…Even though I have no energy, I deeply and completely love and accept who I am right now…Even though I am tired and exhausted and feel like giving up, I choose to recognize the abundance in my life.

 

Then tap on the basic sequence of EFT points as usual, naming the problem:

 

Eyebrow: I feel so tired and exhausted.

Side of Eye: I have no energy and I want to give up.

Under Eye: I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Under Nose: I wonder what emotions are making me so exhausted?

Chin: I feel so tired I could cry.

Collarbone: I’m tired of being tired.

Under Arm: I am completely out of energy.

Top of Head: I am exhausted and tired all the time.

 

After you have completed one full round of traditional EFT as indicated above, try the Thank You, Universe statements for this theme of physical fatigue as follows:

Eyebrow: Thank you Universe for my incredibly strong body.

Side of Eye: Thank You Universe for the stamina of my body.

Under Eye: Thank you Universe for my vibrant health.

Under Nose: Thank You Universe for allowing me to rely on my body.

Chin: Thank You, Universe for all the times my body has supported me.

Collarbone: Thank You, Universe, for strength and stamina in my body.

Under Arm: Thank You, Universe for my overall good health.

Top of Head: Thank You, Universe for all the intelligence of my body.

Or use the Thank You, Universe tapping for a variety of things you appreciate:

Eyebrow: Thank you, Universe for all the energy that I DO have.

Side of Eye: Thank You, Universe for the overflowing abundance in my life.

Under Eye: Thank you, Universe for my incredible strength and health.

Under Nose: Thank You, Universe for such a loving weekend with my family.

Chin: Thank You, Universe for such a pleasurable work schedule.

Collarbone: Thank You, Universe, for all the many blessings I have.

Under Arm: Thank You, Universe for such a peaceful night’s sleep.

Top of Head: Thank You, Universe for those sharp insights that helped me in my work today.

Expressing Basic Gratitude, part 2: I LOVE____________ or I APPRECIATE_________________ or I feel GRATEFUL FOR_____________________. (You may do this exercise as a “list” or as a daily walk or jog, but add tapping while you express the appreciation. Also, try it as a Gratitude Letter to “God” or “The Universe” for all the evidence of prosperity in your life.)

 

Suppose you hate your job, despise your boss, and feel trapped at work. Perform a typical EFT round first, and then finish with a few rounds of “I love, I appreciate, or I feel grateful for ___________.”

Even though I am miserable at work, and no one appreciates me, I deeply and completely love and accept myself anyway…Even though I feel trapped in this lousy job, I choose to accept who I am and how I feel…Even though I hate being stuck here every day, I accept who I am and how I feel.

 

Eyebrow: I hate my job and my boss.

Side of Eye: I’m miserable every day.

Under Eye: It’s not fair to be stuck here.

Under Nose: I feel so stuck.

Chin: It reminds me of that old relationship…

Collarbone: No one appreciates me.

Under Arm: I feel desperate to get out of here.

Top of Head: I hate my job and feel angry all the time.

Now that you have vehemently expressed your anger and frustration about your situation, move on to some basic gratitude tapping. If you “hear” too many tail-enders surfacing as you state the positive statements, go back and do a few more rounds about how miserable you are!! Say it out loud, really speak your mind…get the energy expressed. And then, move to the gratitude tapping.

 

Eyebrow: I appreciate who I am.

Side of Eye: I am grateful this job is paying my rent.

Under Eye: I love how good I am at my job.

Under Nose: I appreciate all of my talents on the job.

Chin: I am grateful for so many blessings in my life.

Collarbone: I appreciate who I am and how I think.

Under Arm: I love knowing I am worthy of appreciation.

Top of Head: I love being employed right now.

 

Stay tuned for the next installment in Part 2 of this series, Bringing the Future into the Present.”

Part 2 of 4 - Acting as if

 

 

Acting as if what we want is already here produces phenomenal results as far as abundance is concerned. Remember, when I talk about abundance, I am referring to wealth, prosperity, vibrant health, and profoundly nourishing relationships. The variation of abundance tapping in this part of the series may be a little hard to get used to (since what you want is actually NOT here yet) but I highly recommend flexing this muscle!

 

The following is from my introduction to Part 1:

“A huge part of my Attracting Abundance with EFT e-book and paperback revolve around expressing gratitude and appreciation for the little and big “items” (friendships, objects, the sun, pets, laughter etc) in your life. Both the tapping sequences and the abundance games in the book center on this expression of appreciation. I have direct experience that this works wonders for shifting the energy towards abundance and attracting what you want flowing into your life! I have even started a new series of f-r-e-e-e-e teleclasses called “Gratitude Parties.”

 

For years now I have used my Daily Gratitude List as a part of my tapping for myself and in classes. I just continue to tap while I am naming what I feel appreciation for. This has several beneficial effects:

 

* I raise my vibration and feel good

* I bring up surprising tail-enders that can be neutralized with EFT

* I remember how good my life really is

 

Remember, it’s the feeling of abundance or wealth that actually produces more abundance in your life. This is the simplest and most often overlooked piece of energetic work with abundance.”

The first two variations on this theme of appreciation and gratitude detailed in Part 1 of this series were:

 

(1)Expressing Basic Gratitude, part 1: Thank you, Universe (God, Higher Power, Spirit, Higher Self) for the blessings I have in my life RIGHT NOW.(Name what you appreciate that is in our life already.) You may do this exercise as a “list” while you tap.

(2)Expressing Basic Gratitude, part 2: I LOVE____________ or I APPRECIATE_________________ or I feel GRATEFUL FOR_____________________. (You may do this exercise as a “list” or as a daily walk or jog, but add tapping while you express the appreciation. Also, try it as a Gratitude Letter to “God” for all the evidence of prosperity in your life.)

___________________________________________________________

This brings us to Part 2--Acting as if

 

Below you will find the third variation on gratitude tapping:

(3)Bringing the Future Into the Present:“Thank you, Universe (God, Higher Power, Universal Intelligence, Source Energy, etc) for bringing me_____________.”(Say this as if what you want has already been brought to your doorstep.) The feeling of gratitude and appreciation when you say these statements as if they were true NOW, allows doors to open wide for you. I have seen this method produce enormous changes rather quickly.

 

Let’s say you are feeling particularly anxious about finances these days. Construct specific EFTsetup statements to reflect your feelings, and then proceed with standard EFT rounds followed by this variation as follows:

 

Even though I feel scared about my financial situation, I deeply and completely love and accept myself anyway…Even though I feel so anxious when I open my bills, I choose to feel safe and calm…Even though I have all these fears about money, I accept who I am and how I feel.

 

Eyebrow: I feel so anxious about my finances.

Side of Eye: I feel short of breath when I think of the bills.

Under Eye: I’m afraid there won’t be enough.

Under Nose: I am constantly anxious about money problems.

Chin: I feel so uptight about my financial situation.

Collarbone: The anxiety is in my chest.

Under Arm: I feel so stressed out about money.

Top of Head: I am frightened about the future of my finances.

 

After you have completed one full round of traditional EFT as indicated above, try “Bringing the Future Into the Present” tapping. Remember, these things haven’t happened yet, you are acting as if they have already come to you…

Eyebrow: Thank you, Universe (or God) for bringing me such fulfilling professional opportunities.

Side of Eye: Thank You, Universe for bringing me that resolution to my debt problems.

Under Eye: Thank you, Universe for bringing me the surprise windfall.

Under Nose: Thank You, Universe for bringing me unexpected abundance.

Chin: Thank You, Universe for bringing me those surprise opportunities to earn money.

Collarbone: Thank You, Universe for bringing me so much prosperity.

Under Arm: Thank You, Universe for bringing me so much cash and liquidity.

Top of Head: Thank You, Universe for bringing me more than enough money this month.

Or use the “Thank you for bringing me” expression for a variety of goodies. Remember, these things haven’t come into your life YET…

Eyebrow: Thank you, God (use any name you wish…) for bringing me that perfect partner!

Side of Eye: Thank You, God for bringing me the solution to that seemingly impossible problem.

Under Eye: Thank you, God for bringing me that stupendous raise.

Under Nose: Thank You, Source for bringing me a perfect celebration with my family.

Chin: Thank You, God for bringing me the exact book contract I wanted.

Collarbone: Thank You, God, for bringing me the relationship of my dreams.

Under Arm: Thank You, Source for bringing me that surprise solution for clearing up this health problem.

Top of Head: Thank You, Universe for bringing me that brilliant idea for the project at work.

 

Stay tuned for the next 2 installments in Part 3 and Part 4 of this series: “Yes, Thank You!” tapping and “Blessing” tapping.

Thanks,

Carol Look, EFT Master

_______________________________________________

Part 3 of 4: Yes, Thank you

 

Think of the energy of the words, “Yes, Thank You!” What a positive, enormous, expansive feeling I experience when I say that out loud. Now notice how you feel when you start a sentence with “No!”

I love this next variation on tapping --- it raises my vibration immediately. It also makes me feel inspired, and I can feel my head, heart and gut lining up and resonating together.

If the following protocol for “Yes, Thank You” or plain“YES!” tapping brings up strong tail-enders, great! Now you know what you need to tap on.

From the original introduction for this series:

“For years now I have used my Daily Gratitude List as a part of my tapping for myself and in classes. I just continue to tap while I am naming what I feel appreciation for. This has several beneficial effects:

 

* I raise my vibration and feel good

* I bring up surprising tail-enders that are then neutralized with EFT

* I remember how good my life really is

 

Remember, it’s the feeling of abundance or wealth that actually produces more abundance in your life. This is the simplest and most often overlooked piece of energetic work with abundance.”

Below are the first 3 variations of abundance tapping included in Parts 1 & 2 of this series:

 

(1)Expressing Basic Gratitude, part 1: Thank you, Universe (God, Higher Power, Spirit, Higher Self) for the blessings I have in my life RIGHT NOW.(Name what you appreciate that is in our life already.) You may do this exercise as a “list” while you tap.

(2)Expressing Basic Gratitude, part 2: I LOVE____________ or I APPRECIATE_________________ or I feel GRATEFUL FOR_____________________. (You may do this exercise as a “list” or as a daily walk or jog, but add tapping while you express the appreciation. Also, try it as a Gratitude Letter to “God” for all the evidence of prosperity in your life.)

(3)Bringing the future into the present:“Thank you, Universe (God, Higher Power, Universal Intelligence, Source Energy, etc) for bringing me_____________.”(Say this as if what you want has already been brought to your doorstep.) The feeling of gratitude and appreciation when you say it as if it were true NOW, allows doors to open wide for you. This may seem subtle, but I have seen it produce huge changes.

Part 3

The fourth version of abundance tapping is “YES, Thank You” TAPPING to help you feel inspired.

 

I think everyone might benefit from relieving some pent up guilt. Choose an incident about which you feel very guilty. On the 0-10 point intensity scale, determine how guilty you feel right now about it when you remember it. Start on the karate chop point as usual, and do a regular round of EFT.

 

Even though I feel guilty about what I did/said, I deeply and completely love and accept myself…Even though I can’t stop feeling guilty about this incident, I deeply and completely love and accept who I am right now…Even though I feel like a bad person because of what I did/said, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

 

Then tap on the basic sequence of EFT points as usual, naming the problem:

 

Eyebrow: I feel so guilty for what I did.

Side of Eye: I shouldn’t have done that, and I feel terrible about it.

Under Eye: I feel so guilty about this incident.

Under Nose: I hate myself for doing it/saying it.

Chin: I feel so guilty it makes me anxious.

Collarbone: I should not be forgiven for this one.

Under Arm: I feel horrible about this, and won’t forgive myself.

Top of Head: I feel terribly guilty about what I did/said.

 

Check your number on the 0-10 point intensity scale again, and do additional rounds of basic EFT if necessary. Then move on to the Yes, Thank You tapping phrases for an emotional lift.

Eyebrow: Yes, thank You God for relieving this guilt.

Side of Eye: Yes, thank You Universe for resolving this problem.

Under Eye: Yes, thank You God for reminding me, I am a good person.

Under Nose: Yes, thank You for such good friendships in my life.

Chin: Yes, thank You for helping me relieve the guilt.

Collarbone: Yes, thank You for helping me forgive myself.

Under Arm: Yes, thank You for making me put this into perspective.

Top of Head: Yes, thank You for recognizing it’s ok not to be perfect.

Or, just tap and say “Yes” as you name your intentions and desires.

Eyebrow: Yes! I want to feel better.

Side of Eye: Yes! I choose to accept myself.

Under Eye: Yes! I have been appreciating who I am more and more.

Under Nose: Yes! I intend to notice the abundance in my life.

Chin: Yes! I want to notice my vibrant health.

Collarbone: Yes! I intend to be a money magnet this year.

Under Arm: Yes! I am an excellent friend.

Top of Head: Yes! I appreciate the miracles in my life.

 

Stay tuned for the last installment of this series, Part 4, on “Blessing” tapping.

Part 4 of 4: Blessing tapping

 

I don’t know what state my personal or professional life would be in emotionally or energetically had I not started using these gratitude exercises so many years ago. From my original introduction to this series:

“For years now I have used my Daily Gratitude List as a part of my tapping for myself and in classes. I just continue to tap while I am naming what I feel appreciation for. This has several beneficial effects:

 

* I raise my vibration and feel good

* I bring up surprising tail-enders that can be neutralized with EFT

* I remember how good my life really is

 

The “Blessing tapping” is new in my daily journal writing, and I enjoy it tremendously.

In spite of enduring the losses that all families must experience, I feel blessed beyond my wildest dreams. It used to feel too good to be true (but I’ve tapped enough so this feeling doesn’t interfere anymore). Now I am able to enjoy all the incredible blessings in my life without feeling guilty or waiting for the other shoe to drop.

The first 4 variations on this theme of appreciation and gratitude from PARTS 1-3 of this series are listed below:

 

(1)Expressing Basic Gratitude, part 1: Thank you, Universe (God, Higher Power, Spirit, Higher Self) for the blessings I have in my life RIGHT NOW.(Name what you appreciate that is in our life already.) You may do this exercise as a “list” while you tap.

(2)Expressing Basic Gratitude, part 2: I LOVE____________ or I APPRECIATE_________________ or I feel GRATEFUL FOR_____________________. (You may do this exercise as a “list” or as a daily walk or jog, but add tapping while you express the appreciation. Also, try it as a Gratitude Letter to “God” for all the evidence of prosperity in your life.)

(3)Bringing the future into the present:“Thank you, Universe (God, Higher Power, Universal Intelligence, Source Energy, etc) for bringing me_____________.”(Say this as if what you want has already been brought to your doorstep.) The feeling of gratitude and appreciation when you say it as if it were true NOW, allows doors to open wide for you. This may seem subtle, but I have seen it produce huge changes.

 

(4) “Yes!” Tapping to help you feel inspired. (It has a very different energy than “No!”)

Part 4: For the final part in this series, I will focus on “Blessing tapping”:

 

(5)“Blessing” Tapping. While you are tapping the sequence of EFT points, bless everything and everyone you can think of and go around and around tapping the sequence of EFT points. This will definitely shift your energy and allow more abundance into your life, as you will be releasing pent up negative energy, tapping on any tail-enders that surface, while recognizing all the blessings you have in your life.

 

Start on the karate chop point as usual, and do one regular round of EFT. Let’s pretend you are having trouble in a romantic relationship (or apply this tapping to the last time you suffered a break-up.)

Even though I have this anxiety about my relationship right now, I choose to feel calm and peaceful…Even though I can’t concentrate because I’m worried we are about to break up, I deeply and completely love and accept myself anyway…Even though I have such severe anxiety about this relationship right now, I accept and love all of me and how I feel.

 

Then tap on the basic sequence of EFT points as usual, naming the problem:

 

Eyebrow: I’m so anxious he/she is going to break up with me.

Side of Eye: This anxiety is in my chest.

Under Eye: I’m so anxious I can’t sit still.

Under Nose: I feel anxious and nervous and can’t concentrate.

Chin: I feel so anxious I could cry.

Collarbone: I feel helpless and hopeless.

Under Arm: The anxiety is overwhelming.

Top of Head: I am exhausted from all the anxiety.

 

After two or three rounds of standard EFT as demonstrated above, finish with one round of “positive” statements to calm yourself and regain your power.

 

Eyebrow: I have decided I can weather anything.

Side of Eye: I temporarily forgot how strong I am.

Under Eye: I choose to feel calm and peaceful, no matter what.

Under Nose: What if I’m the one who wants to leave?

Chin: I choose to feel calm and relaxed, no matter what happens.

Collarbone: I appreciate all of me, even if he/she doesn’t.

Under Arm: I appreciate who I am and how I feel.

Top of Head: I am so calm and peaceful right now.

 

After you have completed one or two full rounds of traditional EFT followed by some positive statements as indicated above, try the “BLESSING” tapping as follows:

Eyebrow: I have decided to bless this relationship and what I learned.

Side of Eye: Bless all the good that came from this relationship.

Under Eye: I bless him/her for what I learned.

Under Nose: Bless him/her for teaching me so much.

Chin: Bless all the men (women) who have taught me what I want.

Collarbone: Bless myself for all my courage and stamina.

Under Arm: I bless the Universe for sending me this person.

Top of Head: Bless him, (bless her), bless me, and bless all my past relationships.

Or, just tap and Bless a variety of things in your life:

Eyebrow: I bless who I am and how I feel right now.

Side of Eye: I bless my family and how they love me.

Under Eye: I bless my incredibly strong and healthy body.

Under Nose: I bless all of my friends and wish them love and prosperity.

Chin: Bless all the abundance I already have in my life.

Collarbone: Bless my home and how I live.

Under Arm: Bless my excellent job, my co-workers and boss.

Top of Head: Bless my mind and how many wonderful ideas it generates.

 

Thanks,

Carol Look

I was using two of my meridians to unload negative thinking and a different meridian to upload positive thoughts to take their place.

Soon after this the top and back of my head itches a lot. I have experience itching in my back and other places, immediately following tapping sessions.

What's going on?
