Do you have EQ? Emotional Intelligence?

While reading this interesting article by Daniel Goleman, the author of “Emotional Intelligence,” I couldn’t help but think that having emotional intelligence is of prime importance. And I am so glad I discovered EFT and the other techniques I use which helped me to gain emotional intelligence. Mr. Goleman says that knowledge, smarts, and vision are important attributes as a leader as is the ability to identify and monitor emotions and to manage relationships. He …

EFT-Tapping and Journaling

Steve Wells an EFT Practitioner from Australia provides this simple but powerful method for getting the most out of EFT while applying it to yourself. He calls the process “Journaling” and, in essence, it involves writing down all those extra aspects, beliefs and thoughts that show up during the EFT process. Each such item represents a new avenue for personal EFT exploration and, unless captured in writing, tends to be forgotten. However, writing down (and …

One way is to imprint the new positive …

Some of these experiences may have been so negative that they can overtake any of the positive experiences you had. We can feel trapped by them, stuck in them and can’t seem to overcome them. I want you to know that they are actually the …

Internal Family Systems – IFS

Internal Family Systems or IFS, as it is commonly called, is an extremely effective and gentle technique for healing and helping the different parts of ourselves feel integrated within us. These parts are very often working against each other in the mistaken belief that they are helping our system be safe. What may be a simple way to describe IFS is to use me as an example. In my 20’s I was performing on Broadway and even though …

Affirmations take a lot of perseverance and many people give up on them when they haven’t worked. With EFT, we have an effective tool that will help you get results from these affirmations.

Beliefs are Passed Down Through the Generations.

Everything we experience in life is filtered through our beliefs about ourselves.

We know that you can say affirmations and yet you still may not be making the money you wanted, or have found that perfect relationship, job or career. You’re still procrastinating …
