Revealing Free Video on How to Finally Take Action

[Posted February 8th, 2011] by KimRuchAlegant

I have a powerful video for you to
watch from the fr*ee pre-event video series for the
upcoming 2011Tapping World Summit. 

This video is with international known expert Cheryl
Richardson, a best-selling author of 5 books who is
best known as one of the world’s foremost personal
coaching pioneers.

Cheryl has appeared on shows like The Oprah Winfrey
Show, Good Morning America and The Today Show
just to name a few.

You can see this fr*ee video by going here

In this video Cheryl talks out the #1 thing that locks
fear, anxiety and an inability to take positive action
into place…

I think this video hits on a really important topic for
most people because as I’m sure you’d agree with
me, taking action on information you learn is just
as important as learning the information in the first
place.

If you feel like you’d like to be implementing more
of what you learn to get better results in your life
then I suggest watching this video.

It’s the 3rd in the fr*ee Tapping World Summit Video
series that has been released over the last week. 

Over 120,000 people have watched the first two
videos with experts Jack Canfield and Bruce Lipton.

There are also nearly 3,000 comments of praise
and appreciation for the amazing videos on the
blog that is hosting them.

I think that what is going on with this video series
and the upcoming 2011 Tapping World Summit
is something very special and unique that is
worth checking out.

Enjoy the video with Cheryl and if you haven’t
yet seen the videos with Jack Canfield and Bruce
Lipton make sure to watch those also.

Disappointment

[Posted February 8th, 2011] by KimRuchAlegant

How do you handle disappointment? I’ve been pondering this the last few days.  You probably know that in addition to being a coach I’m a lawyer who represents people who have been injured.  I was scheduled to start a trial on Monday, February 7th.  I spent the last two weeks preparing for this trial.  I was immersing myself in the case, only to find out the Friday before we were supposed to start that no judge was available.  Monday we found out the next possible trial date is in May.  What a let down!

I wanted this case to go to trial.  I have time and money invested in this case, and I would like there to be a conclusion.  Now I have at least three more months to wait, if not longer. 

So, how do I handle this?  First, I have to make my brain change gears.  This is taking a few days.  I was ready to work all weekend, and suddenly found I had the weekend free. I thought I wasn’t going to be able to watch the Superbowl.  I got to.  My disappointment is offset somewhat by the free time I now have.  So I am of two minds about this.  How do I reconcile these conflicting feelings?

How many times in life do situations happen which have both positive aspects and negative aspects?  All the time!  The old double-edged sword.  Something as major as death or divorce, or something as minor as the store not having the soda we wanted to buy can leave us feeling conflicted.  I’m sad that someone died, but happy that they are no longer in pain.  I will miss them, but I’m happy that I inherited money.  Someone may be happy to get out of a lousy marriage but feel bad because their children no longer have a nuclear family.  I wanted orange crush, but now I have to get ginger ale. Okay, maybe that’s no big deal.

So what are we to do when we feel happy and sad about something?  Conflicting feelings can lead to us feeling guilty about our feelings, which then makes us feel even more sad.  What’s a person to do?  How about some EFT/tapping?

Tapping can help resolve the conflicting feelings we have.  We may be upset because this particular event is reminding us of something which happened in the past.  If that is true, tap on today’s event and then tap on the event in the past.  Or you can tap on “I don’t know what this is reminding me of, but I choose to release these negative memories now.”

So let’s do some tapping on this:

-Think about a situation that you feel conflicted about.  Give it a name, like a movie title.

KC:  Even though I am disappointed and relieved at the same time about {title}, I deeply and completely accept myself.  Even though I wish I wasn’t conflicted about {title}, I love and accept myself anyway.  Even though I feel guilty about this conflict, I choose to start releasing the conflict now.

EB: I’m disappointed and relieved about {title}

SE:  I feel so conflicted

UE: How can I be happy and sad at the same time?

UN: What’s wrong with me?

CH: Am I crazy?

CB:  Maybe I can accept my craziness about {title}

UA: I wish I didn’t feel guilty and conflicted.

TH:  What if I could release this conflict?

 

EB: I’m ready to start releasing my conflicting feelings about {title}

SE:  I accept that I feel conflicted

UE: I forgive myself for being conflicted about {title}

UN: It’s normal to have conflicting feelings

CH: I accept who I am and how I feel

CB:  Feeling more relaxed about {title}

UA: I forgive myself for feeling guilty and conflicted.

TH:  I choose to accept myself anyway.

 

Take a deep breath.  Make sure you are hydrated.  How are you feeling now?  Did you remember what this present event reminds you of?  If so, do some more tapping.  If other feelings came to mind, tap on those feelings too. 

I think one of the biggest blessings that EFT has to offer is that it helps us to accept ourselves, warts and all.  Each of us could probably tap every single day on “Even though I’m not perfect, I love and accept myself anyway” and then using the reminder phrases “I’m not perfect” and “I love/accept myself anyway”.  What do you think?  Are you willing to try it for a week and see if you feel different at the end?    You could write in your journal how accepting you are of yourself, on a scale of 1 to 10.  Then do the tapping every day, and at the end of the week, check in and see where you are. I’d love to hear your results!


Holiday Stress

[Posted December 8th, 2010] by KimRuchAlegant

Related to, but separate from guilt, is stress from the holidays. We want to fit it all in and do it all right, but unless we clone ourselves, it’s usually impossible to do everything.  Take some time and do some tapping around your particular areas of stress.  Each of us stresses about different things.  I give you some suggestions below, but for you to feel relief, be sure you tailor the phrases to what you need to tap on.

Begin tapping:
KC:  Even though I feel stressed and out of control, I accept who I am and how I feel. Even though there is too much to do and not enough time to do it in, I love and accept myself anyway. Even though I’m worried they won’t love me if I don’t do it perfectly, I choose to feel calm and confident.
TH: I’m feeling so stressed, I’ll never get it all done
EB: I have to buy all the presents, and not spend too much money
SE: They won’t fell loved if I don’t get the right present
UE: I have to live up to their expectations
UN: There’s too much to do and not enough time to do it
CH: I don’t want to disappoint anyone
CB: The house is too messy
UA: I feel so disorganized!

Take a cleansing breath.  If you have more areas of stress, tap on them now.

KC: Even though I want to enjoy the holidays, I feel stressed right now.  Even though I have a lot to do, I choose to relax and enjoy myself too. I know this is a busy time of year, but I choose to be calm and relax this holiday season.
TH: It seems like everyone is stressed this time of year
EB: But I don’t have to buy into the frenzy
SE: I choose to be calm and confident in my holiday preparations
UE: I am going to enjoy this holiday season
UN: I manage myself and my time, and I choose to remain calm and relaxed
CH: I don’t need to do it all
CB: I am confident I can get done the necessities
UA: I intend to enjoy this holiday season

Take a cleansing breath.  Keep on tapping and breathing!


Christmas Guilt

[Posted December 8th, 2010] by KimRuchAlegant

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…or is it?  It seems to me that it CAN be the most wonderful, or the worst, time of the year.  It is fun to get together with friends and family (well, maybe on the family part).  It is fun to get out the decorations and the memories that go with them.  The special tree ornaments, or the decoration that someone who is no longer on the planet gave you can bring back fond memories.

But when we spend our time trying to live up to someone else’s expectations, the season can cause guilty feelings.  If the decorations have to be “just so” and the presents have to be “just right”, everyone in the family has to agree on the gathering, and all the food at the party has to be homemade, the guilt and stress just keeps piling on.

So, what can we do about this?  Tapping, of course!  I’ll suggest some tapping sequences. If you have areas of holiday guilt, I don’t mention, please do tap on those areas as well.

Begin tapping:
KC:  Even though I have to make everything perfect for Christmas, I love and accept myself.  Even though I must live up to everyone’s expectations, I accept who I am and how I feel.  Even though I drive myself crazy every year, I love and forgive myself anyway.
TH: If I don’t get it all perfect, I’ll feel guilty.
EB: I’m worried about doing everything just right
SE: They won’t like it if it’s not perfect
UE: It’s only a party if I make all the food myself
UN: I have to have the perfect presents
CN: I have to have the right clothes
CB: We all have to agree on when and where the family will get together
UA: If we don’t all agree it won’t be perfect

Take a deep cleansing breath.  If you have different areas of guilt, tap on them now.

KC: Maybe I can relax and enjoy the holidays this year.  What if I didn’t drive myself crazy? I choose to enjoy myself and my family this year without everything having to be perfect.
TH: What if I could relax?
EB: I can choose to relax and enjoy my holidays
SE: Everything can be good enough, it doesn’t have to be perfect
UE: I like enjoying the holidays
UN: I’m releasing my holiday stress now
CN: I’m doing my best, and that is enough
CB: Everything I do is enough
UA: I love enjoying this season!

Take a deep cleansing breath

Be sure to make time to be by yourself.  While the fun and crowds are great, we all need time to recharge our batteries too.


The Answers Are Within

[Posted November 10th, 2010] by KimRuchAlegant

I just got back from Colorado for our first Enwaken Coaching training.  Enwaken coaching is about using your intuition to “read” people’s energy. One of the things David Morelli, our teacher, kept saying is that EVERYONE CAN DO THIS.  By this he means, everyone can access their intuition and get answers (and that everyone can see energy, with practice-but don’t let that scare you away!).

On Twitter today (I’m FreedomHealing by the way-follow me) someone posted a quote about how the answers are always within.  You may remember that I’ve written a few newsletters about the “Turning Passion Into Profits” seminar that I attended. After that seminar, I began using EFT/tapping while saying affirmations each day.  The tapping allows you to clear any resistance you have to what it is that you are affirming.  The phrasing of affirmations is very important.  They need to be written in positive phrasing and in present tense.  Not “Money is coming to me” but “I have as much money as I want and need”.  See the difference?  (Feel free to contact me if you want some help to write your affirmations.)  I’ve been tapping and saying my affirmations before I go to bed at night ever since the seminar.

So, one of my affirmations was “I am able to access my intuition at all times”.  I affirmed this because too often my gut has told me to do or not do something, I haven’t listened, and I’ve not been happy about it.  So I was determined to get better about listening to my gut, which is where your “yes/no” intuition lies.  (One thing I learned from David Morelli is that there are different kinds of intuition in different parts of your body, loosely associated with your chakras.)

After a few months of tapping on “I am able to access my intuition at all times” I listened to an interview Bob Doyle did with David Morelli.  David did some mediation type exercises and then offered his Enwaken coaching program at the end.  How could I turn this down?  I had been asking to be able to access my intuition, and here I was listening to this offer.  I couldn’t say no, so now I am learning how to do intuitive readings of people’s energy.

As an aside, if you’ve never experienced EFT/tapping or want to try out my new intuitive energy reading skills, I’d be happy to give you 15 minutes of my time.

So I challenge you to write some affirmations for yourself, and say them while doing some tapping.  Do this at least once a day, but two or three times a day would be even better.  You will be very surprised at what happens with your life.  How do you determine what affirmations you need, you ask?  Listen to your intuition!


A Message to Guilty Moms

[Posted October 26th, 2010] by KimRuchAlegant

I’ve launched an amazing new program to help you release your Mommy Guilt and other emotional baggage. My proven results program is based on the simple approach of Tapping. Also known as the Emotional Freedom Technique, tapping is a relaxing technique that takes physical tapping on key points of your body and combines it with recognition of your guilty thoughts and feelings. This allows you to release the negative thoughts and feelings and replace them with positive ones.

I understand Mommy Guilt because I’ve been there. I am a working mom myself to two children and it can get overwhelming to juggle it all AND mentally beat up on yourself at the same time. Once I learned and understood the power tapping had over my guilt, I knew I had to share it with other mommys. I learned more about EFT, became a certified energy coach and have been successfully helping clients ever since. (Click here for an audio recording of a sample tapping session)

This program offers the support of working with a private tapping specialist (me) only from the comfort of your own home, car, where ever you need it. As a member of the program you’ll receive 52-eclasses all geared toward a specific piece of the Mommy guilt puzzle. Included are topics like working outside the home, taking time for yourself and leaving your kids in day care. You’ll also have access to hundreds of other resources in your member area. These include eBooks, expert interviews and videos.  I will be adding to the content every single month, and we will have recorded coaching calls starting in January.

You can become a member and start freeing yourself from your Mommy guilt today. You simply visit my member site www.theguiltymom.com and sign up. You’ll receive a test drive at only $2.95 (a value of $47) to see what it’s all about. After the introductory period you’ll automatically receive your e-classes and continue to have access to your member resource area with monthly billing.

I know this program can help you, just like it helped me. We all suffer from guilt, and the weight of carrying it around keeps you from living the life you should be living. I look forward to helping you conquer your Mommy Guilt and learning to love yourself a little more.


Feeling Guilty About Working and Leaving My Kids

[Posted July 19th, 2010] by KimRuchAlegant

I have a conflict-I want to work, I don’t want to work

I know I have felt conflict because I wanted or needed to be working, but I also wanted and needed to be with my children.  This leads to feeling very unfulfilled, because we are never present.  At work our thoughts are with our children and when with our children our thoughts are at work.  Or we feel like we are doing so many things, but we are not doing any of them well.  This leads to more guilt and frustration.

Below are some suggested tapping sequences for these feelings.  Feel free to change the wording for your particular situation, and to do the rounds more than once.  The more you tap, the more relief you will get.  I suggest you tap more on the positive aspects, unless you have some very powerful reactions to the negative aspects.  In that case, keep working on the negative until you feel you have processed it. (If you don’t know how to do this, click here for a video or here for a picture)

KC:  Even though I have this conflict, I want to work, want to be with my kids, I love and accept myself anyway Guilt feels so bad, I don’t want to feel it anymore, maybe I’m ready to let it go.  I accept who I am and how I feel.  Even though I feel the guilt in my body, I love and accept my body anyway

Tapping:
TH: These guilty feelings in my body
EB: If only I didn’t have to work-but I like to work, need to work, I spent all that time in school
SE: I feel guilty but I accept my feelings and they are okay
UE: I like my job but hate leaving my kids
UN: I’m so glad I don’t feel guilty anymore. Yeah right.  I still feel guilty.
CH: Don’t want to let go of my guilt bc I deserve to be punished for leaving them
CB: It’s safe to let go of the guilt. No, it’s not safe to get it go.
UA: I’m carrying around all this guilt because I work. Why do I have to work? Because I need the job. 
TH: My source wants me to give up my guilt.  I intend to get relief from my guilty feelings starting right now

Take a deep breath. Take a drink of water.

If particular thought, emotion or reaction came up, you should make a note of it, and then you can tap on it some more, making up your own phrases. Don’t get caught up in the language.  Just say what you feel, and you will begin working through the emotions.  Once you’re ready, move on to the sequences below.

POSITIVE TAPPING:
TH: I deserve to have what I want!
EB: I can imagine having what I want
SE: I allow myself to have what I want
UE: I can work if I want to
UN: I don’t need to feel guilty about this anymore. 
CB: I like working, and that’s okay
UA: If I let it go, something might change
TH: My kids have turned out pretty damn good
EB: Their faults are their own, they are not because I work
SE: I am enough, there is enough, I’m doing enough
UE: I’m doing the best I can and it is enough
UN: I forgive me, him, her
CB: I accept responsibility for going to work.  It is not damaging my children.
UA: I love feeling good about working
TH: I’m okay just how I am. I accept who I am and how I feel. I love this freedom to feel good.

Take a deep breath. Take a drink of water.  Try to do a couple of tapping rounds each and every day.  If you tap while going to the bathroom, it will help keep you feeling good throughout the day.  You don’t need to say anything.  But you can spend time working with words as well.  Just don’t let the words stop you from tapping.

Learn How To Play

[Posted June 21st, 2010] by KimRuchAlegant

 At the Turning Passion Into Profits weekend seminar a few months ago, one of the profound (to me, anyway) statements Bob Doyle of Wealth Beyond Reason made was “learn how to play (any by your own rules)”.

 

This really struck me.  Between work, volunteer activities, kids, taking care of the house, yard and pool—where’s the time for fun?  How the heck do adults play, anyway?

 

Is hanging out with friends play?  Going to the gym?  Going to the movies?  Getting drunk?  Going to a concert? Sports? Gardening?  S-e-x?  Going to a party? Going on vacation?  Mountain climbing, hiking, sight seeing?  Reading a book?  What about playing politics?

 

I can safely say that playing with children is literally playing, as well as playing cards, board games and video games.

 

How do kids know how to play?  It comes naturally to them, doesn’t it?  Play evolves as children age.  Babies have a great time playing with a  simple noodle, then become toddlers who play games like stacking blocks (which helps them develop their motor skills and analytical abilities).  And kids just love running around outside, which makes their bodies strong!  But they don’t even realize it.  Why don’t adults do that?

 

So I suppose the answer to “how do adults play?” is that what you consider play is up to you!  You just need to be sure you fit some play into your life, preferably every day or at least every week.

 

The important thing about adult play is how it makes you feel.  If YOU think it’s lots of fun, it’s play to you, right?  Does it reduce stress, or do you feel charged up afterwards?  Activities that do both are important to have in your life.  

 

Yoga makes me feel relaxed, and is play to me.   When I work in my gardens, I sometimes do call it “playing” in my gardens.  I find it very rewarding when something I put in the ground grows and looks pretty.  Now, my kids are growing up and looking pretty too, but I definitely don’t consider that job play!

 

I know that when my kids were smaller, getting the laundry done was an accomplishment.  How was I supposed to make time for play?  If you have small children and you have the means, make sure you play at least once a month.  As the kids get older, bump it up to once a week.  Play doesn’t have to cost money, except maybe for the baby sitter.

 

So, what do you do to play?  Make the time to do it!  It helps you stay sane.

 

 

Here’s some tapping phrases to help you get on the playing track.  Please change the words to fit your specific situation. (Click here to see the tapping points or here to see a tapping demonstration)

 

Karate chop:  even though I don’t have time to play, I love and accept myself.  Even though I don’t remember how to play, I accept who I am and how I feel.  Even though I want to play but have no idea how to find the energy and I don’t remember how, I love and accept myself anyway.

 

Top of head-I don’t have time to play

Eyebrow-I don’t remember HOW to play

Side of the eye-but I want to!

Under the eye-but I don’t have time

Under the nose-my body and mind need to play

Chin-what if I could find the time, once a week or once a month?

Collarbone-I forget how to play

Under arm-maybe I can remember how to play, if I try

Top of head-maybe I can start making time to play

Eyebrow-I’ll bet Bill Gates and Warren Buffett make time to play

Side of eye-I’m willing to make play a priority

Under the eye-thank you universe, for helping me make play a priority in my life from now on
