You deserve a wonderful holiday. All too often this time of year is full of stress and worry instead of quiet connection and wonder.
We’ll share some tapping with you to help in just a minute…
But first, Thank You for making an AMAZING difference in so many people’s lives this year. First by spending so much energy and focus on making yourself the best person you can be, and second, for being part of the team here.
There is a powerful energy when we gather together. When we all read the same emails, tap on the same issues, clear energy together.
And whether you read the emails and wished people well, contributed the $7 for the call we had on The Question, or donated more (whether it was $8, $10, $25 or $50… We’re very touched!) you made a difference, too.
It was SOOO fun to send the money to different people who needed microloans to help their community or to get their farm or business going. As a group we helped 38 people.
We loaned Mary in Kenya money to get a solar light source for the vegetables she grows to sell to support her family… For Sokheang in Cambodia to put a roof over the room where she has her sewing machine so she can teach other villagers how to sew and make money… And Vestine in Rwanda money to buy shoes to sell in her small shoe store. We helped Janneth Vanessa in Ecuador buy some chicks so she can support her family selling eggs… and Sou in Samoa to buy supplies to start a small bakery.
We did this together! We made a difference. We gave people who might never break out of subsidence living have chances at better lives and access to new ways to contribute to their families and their communities. We gave them access to their dreams! (If that doesn’t prime the pump for abundance, I don’t know what will!!)
And since Kiva.org loans are repaid 99% of the time, and we’ll reinvest the repaid loans again and again… The abundance is multiplied over and over again.
Thank you for helping raise more than $1157 for Kiva microloans around the world (http://www.kiva.org/) — Your donations will be invested and then continually reinvested as the loans get paid back, so you’re money will lift lives over and over again!
If you still want to contribute you can! Contribute $7 or more here, and get the replay of The Question… A call designed to line you up for a very successful 2015. People who tuned in live had a lot of ah-ha’s and new possibility!
The tapping for fulfilling and gentle holidays is below…
May you have a loving and gentle time this year, and renew and reflect so you can start 2015 with intention and quiet strength.
With much love,
Cathy and Rick
Tapping for Holiday Stress
The holidays can be so stressful. And it can be easy for people to get sucked into anxiety and loneliness during this time of year… Rather than the warm fulfillment and connection people long for.
Taking 3 minutes to tap can change your state of mind and allow that warmth and fulfillment to come in. No matter how much you’re trying to do over the next few days!
So join with me and give yourself the gift of the next 3 minutes.
Take a nice slow deep breath. Let the Universe handle all the crisis for the next few minutes.
And tap along, gently and with compassion for yourself if you can.
Karate Chop: Even though there is so much to do, and I feel so behind… I love that I want to do so much because I care.
Even though its easy to get stressed, I remind myself that I am a generous person and I want to do things “right.”
Even though I’ve been trying to do things the “right” way, maybe what people want most is me to be present and loving with them.
Top of the Head: Presents and trimmings are fun.
Eyebrow: Dinner with all the trimmings can be delightful.
Side of the Eye: And people most want to be seen and loved.
Under the Eye: Maybe I can take a deep breath.
Under the Nose: Maybe I can start by being present with me.
Chin: Even if the gifts aren’t wrapped perfectly, and I forgot to get Aunt Martha’s slippers.
Collarbone: It doesn’t matter if dinner comes out looking like Martha Stewart cooked it.
Under the Arm: What matters to me are the people and the connection.
Top of the Head: I choose to start with connecting with me.
Eyebrow: And giving myself some appreciation for the care and effort I put in.
Side of the Eye: I don’t want anyone to feel left out!
Under the Eye: I want everyone to feel cared for.
Under the Nose: I want to feel cared for.
Chin: So I tune into me.
Collarbone: I tell myself, “Good Job!”
Under the Arm: And I let myself breathe for a few minutes.
Top of the Head: What if I let go of perfection…
Eyebrow: And brought in some humor and delight?
Side of the Eye: What if I notice the abundance of choice I have?
Under the Eye: And print out a gift certificate for Aunt Martha?
Under the Nose: Maybe we could go shopping together for just the right slippers…
Chin: After the holidays are over!
Collarbone: I choose to allow fulfillment and peace fill me.
Under the Arm: I appreciate myself and all those around me who do their best.
Top of the Head: And I let the spirit of the true holidays fill me.
If you can, let yourself be quiet for a minute. Let the tapping and the intention release the stress in your cells. Let the energy of beauty, warmth, gratitude and love fill you.
And please know you are loved.
Rick and Cathy
