Ever have one of those days where nothing quite goes according to plan?
I’ve just returned from an amazing four-day training workshop where I learned even more about EFT and Matrix Reimprinting. I met some wonderful people and gained so much valuable knowledge. As I’m unpacking, doing laundry, catching up with emails, grocery shopping, and all the things that it takes to settle back into life at home, I find myself feeling quite scattered. What does that look like for me?
I’ve been running around all day trying to accomplish lots of things. My actions have not been the most efficient, forgetting why I’ve gone into a room, dropping stuff, getting distracted by anything and everything. But I realize I’m tired and I’m not at my best. Oh, and I am simultaneously preparing for a speaking engagement at a 2-day festival this weekend! I am shopping for last-minute items for my booth and I realize that I’ve lost my list of all the things to bring to the festival. That was the last straw. I need to turn this around. I’m feeling really scattered. And frustrated. And worried about not having enough time. It’s definitely time to tap. Intensity? About a 7.
Even though I’m feeling really scattered and I’m upset with myself for losing my list, I accept how I feel and I’m ok.
Even though I’m feeling really scattered, I’ve even lost my list that I’ve been working on for weeks, I accept how I feel, I accept myself, and I’m ok.
Even though I feel so scattered right now, I accept how I feel, and I’m alright.
Using the reminder statement of “feeling scattered” I tap through all the points for one round, decide to do two rounds, and then do a check-in. My intensity seems to have decreased, but I’m still a little angry with myself for losing my list. I tap another round about “feeling angry” with myself, listening in as it turns to frustration, which then turns to acceptance and my intensity decreases as I tap. I realized I can make a new list, and it might even be a better list!
I’m feeling less scattered now and definitely less frustrated. My intensity is a 1. I’m starting my new list with a new and improved attitude. How about a little positive tapping?
Even though I had to create a new list, it turned out even better than the first, I feel much better now and I’m going to rock that talk at the festival!
If you have days or even one part of your day when things just aren’t going right, take a moment to be still and just tap and breathe. If words come to you, beautiful. Say what you feel and see what comes up for you. Let me know how I can support you on your path.
Keep Calm and Tap On!
