Chance & Change

How to Experience Radical Change – and LOVE IT!

I want to talk to you today about a decision that could change your life forever.  It’s the idea that a small moment, a small decision, that doesn’t SEEM radical, can create radical change.

Whoa…  You say, “Radical change?”  Who wants “Radical change?”  Frankly, I think most of us do.

No, not change as in upheaval, distress, movement, etc.

Change as in, “Everything is better, feels better, life is flowing, relationships are healing, money is coming in, joy has come back into the very core of my being…”

That, to me, is Radical Change.

Why do we need Radical Change? 

Because when I look around, most people are simply NOT feeling this way on a daily basis, or with any consistency.

It seems like we, as a society, have lowered the bar in a significant way.

It’s like an awful game of “Limbo”!

The issue is, there’s nobody out there in the mainstream media, in our communities, or in our families, looking at us and telling us, “You CAN feel good all the time!”

That message simply does not exist.  Imagine that, it doesn’t EXIST!  Look at the messages we are receiving if we dare to turn on the television.  They say, “Here is happiness, joy, and abundance, all you have to do is take this little pill (and please ignore the list of horrible side effects, just look at the pretty pictures).


“Here’s a great time with friends and family.  Everyone looks great and healthy AND they’re drinking beer.”

Those are the “positive” messages.

If you actually watch the programming (and it is “programming”!) you are likely to see awful news on the “news”, or a game show where people are basically gambling to make any money, or a cop/detective show where someone is brutally killed in the first 5 minutes, and then we spend the next hour going after all the suspects and trying to uncover the mystery.

It’s almost laughable, if it were not so painful….

Now, you might say to me, “I don’t watch TV!”  Well, that’s fantastic, a great start.  So the questions then become, who are you interacting with?  What are you talking about?  What are you thinking about?

And if most of you take an honest look at that question, you’ll see it’s not a pretty picture.

So what do you do?

What do you do when everyone around you acts this way and it’s so much easier to “fit in” by just going along with it?

Easy to say, harder to do…

You make a CHOICE!

You make a CONSCIOUS CHOICE to no longer participate in energies that don’t support you and your well-being.  You pay attention, close attention, to how something makes you feel and if it doesn’t make you feel good, you move away from it, stop speaking about it, turn it around.

And you use TAPPING, every step of the way, to make the whole process MUCH easier.

You might be wondering, how exactly do I do that? Let me give you an example:

You just got home from work, later than you wanted to… again.  You’re tired, stressed, just fed the kids and put them to bed, and you’re overwhelmed with all the stress and responsibility.  Your habit and instinct is to put on the TV and watch CSI (a crime show).

You think, it’s a well put together show, and entertaining, and you get to zone out for an hour, but you never feel great afterwards and you often have nightmares from the violence in the show.  It would seem obvious not to watch it, but you’re just compelled to do so, and you just need to zone out…

Instead, here’s what you can do:

In that moment of making the choice between turning on the TV or not, you pause, tap on the karate chop point, and say, “Even though I’m totally stressed out, the kids are driving me crazy, work stinks, and I just want to disappear for an hour into the drama of that TV show, I deeply and completely accept myself.”

You repeat it three times while tapping on the karate chop point and then tap through each of the other points, repeating, “This stress… tap, tap, tap… I just want to watch TV… tap, tap, tap… I don’t have the energy to do anything else… tap, tap, tap…” and so forth, through the points.

You finish one round and take a deep breath… Sigh…
All of a sudden, something has shifted.  Your body has relaxed in a big way.  The stress has lifted just enough for you to say, “I feel ok, and I think I’m going to read my book…”

And that subtle but important choice, is ALL the difference.

Because you just keep making that better choice, again and again.  And you just keep using Tapping to balance your energy and come to that place of peace.

Again and Again.

Tap, Tap, Tap

Sigh… I can now make the better choice.

Again and Again.

And next thing you know… Radical Change!

You feel better, happier, and more fulfilled.


Tap, Tap, Tap…

Radical Change IS possible.  Start now!  What can you tap on to bring some relief into your life?  What empowering CHOICE can you make?


Until next time….

Keep Tapping!
