Wow! I have so much to share with you today that I can’t wait to get started! Remember my reason to feel glad/happy/joyful yesterday was: “Everything I need to heal myself completely is showing up at exactly the right time in my life?” Well, you’ll never guess what happened today…
I logged into Facebook this morning, for the first time in about a week, and up popped one of those irritating “pages you might like” suggestions – I say irritating, as usually they are, but in this case, it turned out to be something pretty spectacular. The page was called The Law of Attraction and the first post I read had a link to The Law of Attraction Summit 2013, which begins today.
I was intrigued, particularly since law of attraction related things keep popping up in my life at the moment, so I followed the link and went through the registration process, expecting to find that it all cost a vast sum of money. But, I was surprised and delighted to discover that the sessions are free!
Each day for the next 10 days, a video is posted on the site and stays up for 24 hours. After that, you can opt to pay for unlimited access to each session. I felt torn as to what to do, as I knew I should be getting on with some jobs I’ve been avoiding for the past couple of days – tidying/cleaning/boring emails etc – not sitting down watching a video. But, my instinct was telling me that this was important, so I shelved the guilty feelings and made myself comfy on the sofa, with my laptop perched on the coffee table.
I was amazed to find that today’s session is hosted by Bob Doyle, who was featured in The Secret. In fact, it was his section of The Secret I referred to just 2 days ago in my post, Your Wish Is My Command. This had to be a sign from The Universe!
The video begins with an in depth look at the Law of Attraction and what caught my attention in particular was the part about resistance. Often, when there is something we truly want in our lives, we don’t always get the results we desire, even if we are diligently doing all the “right” things in terms of the Law of Attraction. This seems to be because we are holding onto some form of resistance.
I’ve had a sneaky feeling over the past few months, that I might have some resistance surrounding my health, but I never knew what it was or how to get rid of it, so I was really pleased that this was being highlighted. In the video, Bob Doyle explains that there are several ways to release resistance, but the one he uses in today’s video is non other than EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique.) Well, I nearly fell off the sofa laughing at this point, as it was only yesterday that I wrote about how EFT had made a reappearance in my life. Cue the music from the Twilight Zone!
Now for the magic part. The video finishes with a visualisation/meditation which incorporates EFT (tapping.) In a nutshell, you visualise the life you want to live – in my case this is a life where I am completely healthy and filled with energy – and you pay attention to any resistance that may come up and continue tapping in order to release this resistance.
I suspected I may have a small amount of resistance, as is only natural, but man, how wrong was I! You see, in my mind I was imagining myself as completely healthy and picturing all the things I was doing in my life now that I’d regained my health, but the little voice in my head (which was actually very loud and shouty) kept saying, “Don’t be silly, you can’t do this because…” I’d had my first, formal introduction to resistance and it wasn’t pretty!
However, following the instructions on the video, I kept tapping, and when any resistance or negative emotion arose that was particularly strong – this happened repeatedly- I paused the video and did a few rounds of EFT in order to release that emotion.
I was completely shocked at some of the things that came up for me, and even as I was doing a round of tapping, the negative emotion I was releasing would evolve and develop into a different form of resistance. It was fascinating, as well as hugely beneficial and I really feel that today has been a landmark day.
And just to prove it, I didn’t have my customary afternoon nap this afternoon. This is HUGE for me and has only happened once since the start of The Pollyanna Plan. Usually, after lunch my energy crashes and I physically cannot continue without a rest, but today I used the EFT technique to fight the crippling fatigue and, although naturally I feel tired, I was able to keep going. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about this! Yippeeee!
