As we become more and more aware of how we are the artists of our own reality, we have to take more responsibility for what shows up. Some people spend a lot of time visualizing, writing down goals, writing narratives of the life story they desire to live... and yet when those things actually begin to show up, it can be scary, even terrifying. It's easy to slam the door shut when opportunity knocks. But when we get in touch with our heart's desire and hold our mental and emotional focus on that, it does begin to move towards us, whether we know it or not. The life of your dreams is probably not going to just descend on you like an LSD trip. It's more likely to begin with a phone call, or a text, or a knock at the door. It might be a chance encounter with an old friend, or an email from a coworker. It could be an invitation to an event. If you're not paying attention, or if you don't really believe that all your visualizing and praying might actually work, you are likely to overlook these little windows of opportunity. So practice saying yes.
It's not that we shouldn't use discernment. It's OK to say no when something really doesn't feel right, but be careful not to respond out of fear. Over-indulging in fear will shut you and your life down. Accepting an invitation can be the turning point in your life. Learn to listen to your intuition. It comes from down deep. It's not head talk, but heart talk that speaks the deepest truth.
EFT Tapping is a great way to work with your subconscious fears and resistance to getting and having what you want. It can be used to your benefit in 3 main ways:
1. To remove the fear or resistance to positive change.
2. To program your mind to focus on and orchestrate the life you are seeking.
3. To manage your fear and self-doubt when good things begin to actually show up.
In short, I recommend using EFT Tapping to remove your self-sabotaging beliefs and fears that block your success.... and then to clarify your real goals and desires... and then to keep you from freaking out when life begins to show up.
Just remember, you're just an architect - an artist - you're not the the manufacturer of reality. Your little ego is not Master of the Universe! You are just directing the flow, not creating the river.
Don't take yourself so seriously. Play and have fun any chance you get, and know that all things change - both pleasure and pain - so don't cling to any of it. Your only real and lasting bliss resides inside you.
