In my last article I wrote about the theme of “Clearing Blocks to Success.” This installment of the Success and Abundance Series will cover the topic I typically address in Class #2 of my teleseries, “Prosperity Consciousness.” In my introductory e-mail for Class #2, I usually ask the participants one or more of the following questions: Do you believe in prosperity or scarcity? Do you believe you will be provided for? Does the subject of money make you anxious and uptight? Do you believe there is enough to go around? Do you feel competitive about money?
Again, after combining my notes on several recent teleclass series, I chose participants’ issues that I thought would be most helpful to a large audience. They are below.
When I asked “Mike” where his consciousness vibrated around the subject of prosperity, he told the group “I never felt safe because we were always on the verge of running out of money. My parents fought about the bills constantly when I was a kid, and I continue to be afraid there won’t be enough, no matter how high my salary is.” We tapped as follows:
Karate Chop Point:
“Even though there wasn’t enough, I deeply and completely accept myself anyway…”
“Even though I’m convinced there won’t be enough, I choose to believe in prosperity now…”
“Even though money makes me feel anxious, I choose to feel calm and peaceful when I pay my bills.”
Then we tapped on the 8 points:
Eyebrow: There was never enough
Side of Eye: I didn’t feel safe
Under Eye: I still don’t feel safe
Under Nose: What if there isn’t enough?
Chin: I feel insecure about money
Collarbone: I can’t handle this anxiety about money
Under Arm: I’m afraid to get my hopes up
Top of Head: I must be careful about money.
Then we tapped a second round on more positive suggestions:
Eyebrow: I enjoy knowing there is enough
Side of the eye: I love feeling safe and secure about money
Under the eye: I choose to feel safe about money now
Under the nose: I believe that there will always be more than enough
Chin: I appreciate my prosperity consciousness
Collarbone: I choose to expand my prosperity consciousness
Under the arm: I am enough
Top of the head: I’m grateful for all the abundance in my life.
“Patti” stated she resorted to hoarding money just in case she would run out. No matter how big her “pile” was, she never felt there was going to be enough. She also admitted to hoarding food, and incidentally, has a weight problem. We tapped as follows:
Karate Chop Point:
“Even though I need to hold on to my money, I deeply and completely accept myself and my feelings…”
“Even though I’m convinced there is prosperity for others but not for me, I choose to release this doubt…”
“Even though I refuse to believe there will be enough, I accept who I am and intend to feel safe.”
Then we tapped the points for two rounds:
Eyebrow: I don’t deserve prosperity
Side of the eye: There’s not enough anyway
Under the eye: I need to be careful
Under the nose: Money makes me anxious
Chin: What if I run out
Collarbone: I need to hold on
Under the arm: Don’t make me let go
Top of the head: I always need more
Then we tapped for more positive suggestions:
Eyebrow: I love believing in prosperity
Side of the eye: I love knowing there is enough to go around
Under the eye: I love knowing I am valuable
Under the nose: I choose to believe in abundance
Chin: I feel safe about letting go
Collarbone: There will be enough
Under the arm: There is already enough
Top of the head: I accept prosperity into my life.
Another caller, “Lisa,” told the group “I don’t feel valued unless I am helping and taking care of others. So if I take care of myself and put my health or my business first, I’m convinced they will be angry or leave me.” As a result, Lisa felt compelled to minimize her talents and undermine herself on every level. We tapped as follows:
Karate Chop Point:
“Even though I don’t deserve prosperity because they never valued me, I choose to value myself right now…”
“Even though I remember when they told me I wasn’t worth it, I have decided that I am worth prosperity…”
“Even though I’m afraid I’ll be abandoned AGAIN, I deeply and completely accept all of me.”
Then we tapped two rounds on the sequence of points:
Eyebrow: What if they leave me?
Side of the eye: It’s not safe to take care of myself
Under the eye: There is only enough for them
Under the nose: What if they resent me
Chin: I don’t deserve prosperity
Collarbone: I don’t want someone else to suffer
Under the arm: There’s only enough to get by anyway
Top of the head: I’m not worth it so why bother?
Eyebrow: What if I’m the one who wants to leave?
Side of the eye: What if there’s enough for all of us?
Under the eye: I believe in prosperity now
Under the nose: I love believing there is plenty
Chin: I feel secure knowing there is plenty
Collarbone: I believe in more than enough
Under the arm: I embrace plenty
Top of the head: I’m so happy I resolved this issue and I embrace prosperity.
Class #3 of my series is titled “Law of Attraction.” I describe this theory to the group ahead of time: Whatever is currently showing up in your life (relationship conflicts, money concerns, health issues) is a direct result of what you are attracting. You are attracting what you are focused on, so if bouncing checks and high monthly bills are your focus, you stay stuck in this energy. You must be able to focus on prosperity and abundance if you want to attract success into your life.
