What the News Is Doing To Your Old Money Stories

Have you noticed how all the bad economic news has activated you these days? My clients and I definitely have!

All the big lay-offs, so many small businesses going under, a tidal wave of unemployment—it’s bringing up a lot of fear and feelings of lack. And it’s activating old money stories.

When that happens, our negative feelings start running the show, affecting how we show up, what we do (or don’t do), and basically messing with our finances.

I go into more detail here.

Maybe you have one or more old money stories that is getting triggered now, something like:

  • I don’t deserve more.
  • Making money is too hard.
  • I’m no good with money.
  • There’s never enough.

If so, you’re probably not enjoying what you’re seeing in your financial picture.

When you’re seeing that kind of hit on your finances, one of the best things to do is to really clear out those limiting stories you have around money so you can get back in charge. 

The best way to do that is with EFT—or “Tapping.”

To get some help with that, check out my Money Blocks BlockBuster Group, which is starting up again Friday, May 15, 2020. In each session we have group tapping on common money blocks as well as individual hotseats where we focus on your specific money stories so you can release and replace them.

For more information go to https://unblockresults.com/the-money-blocks-blockbuster-program/

Or just reach out to me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com. We’ll set up a call at no charge to figure out what your money story is and see if the group is right for you.

Don’t wait too long, though. There are only eight places total, and it’s already filling up. We start on Friday, May 15th—just a little over a week away. And I won’t offer another one until the Fall.

Why You’re Procrastinating Now

If you’re procrastinating—or procrastinating more—these days, there are reasons.

I talked about those reasons in this week’s Facebook Live:

(Please be kind about my hair. This is what it does when it doesn’t get cut in waaaaaaaay too long.)

First, stress is taking a toll on everyone right now. And the energy you use to deal with your stress gets taken away from the actions you would like to be doing now, whether that’s creating an online program, cleaning out a closet, or learning a new language. Understanding this dynamic can help you take some of the pressure off yourself.

Beyond that, more than the usual amount of stress in your life “raises the bar” so that the usual ways you use to get around your procrastination simply are no longer enough.

So, if you haven’t completely gotten rid of the subconscious blocks that lead you to procrastinate (which is what I do with clients), they will definitely be more powerful now.

For these reasons, I encourage you to give yourself grace during extra stressful times like these when you aren’t getting as much done.

Also, try tapping along with the 1st of the 3 free videos you get for signing up for my newsletter. (If you haven’t done so already, get the 3-video series How to Stop Procrastinating Without Having to Push Yourself So Hard here.)

If You Feel Like You Can’t—or Shouldn’t—Sell Now…

If you are struggling to make an offer or close a sale during these challenging times, please know that you are not alone!

So many of us are holding ourselves back, feeling like we shouldn’t be selling. Like no-one has money to buy from us right now. That if we try to sell anything, we’ll come off as slimy, sales-y, mercenary scumbags trying to take advantage of other people.

And yet 

. . .

You have to sell! 

And there are still people with money out there—People who need and want exactly what you offer! 

So what do you do?

I’m on a mission to help small business owners get past this hurdle. Watch the video to see how.

So many of us self-employed are holding ourselves back, feeling we shouldn’t make offers or sell. It doesn’t have to be that way. Please share this page with anyone you know who is self-employed.

My Interview with the MYM Podcast

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of all the emails about the pandemic. So this is going to be about something completely different.

Right before the world changed, I was interviewed by Rev. Frances Fayden for her podcast Magnify Your Miracles. That month she was talking about money, so we focused on the work I do around releasing blocks to having and keeping more money.

I really enjoyed our conversation. (Thank you, Frances!) We covered a lot of ground. We talked about:
• The relationship between procrastination and money blocks,
• Why women seem to develop more money blocks than men,
• What money blocks look like, and
• How I get rid of those blocks with my clients.

Have a look at the YouTube video of the interview:

Just so you know, during the interview I mentioned that I would be starting a Money Blocks BlockBuster Group in April. However, after recording the podcast, the world changed. I put those plans on hold so I could give free Tapping Circles to help folks release their stress around the pandemic. (For more information, and the link to join the April Tapping Circles, go to https://unblockresults.com/tappingcircle/.)

Instead, the money group is starting in May. That means I’m scheduling calls now with people interested in joining the group.

Email me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com to schedule a call. We’ll talk about what’s going on with you and see if there’s a fit.

You can change your financial life. Just picture how that will change your life, your relationships, and your future!

Wishing you the money you’ve been dreaming of!

Tap Along Video for Pandemic Stress

Here’s a tap-along video based on the group tapping we did in my first Tapping Circle for Pandemic Stress. It touches on a lot of what we’re all dealing with these days.

Tap along to get started releasing some of the stress and overwhelm you’re experiencing. Then come to my Tapping Circle to go deeper to release stress and overwhelm caused by the coronavirus pandemic. It’s free to anyone over 18.

You can get more details on the Tapping Circle, including how to attend it online, at https://unblockresults.com/tappingcircle/

That page includes two videos: one teaches the mechanics of tapping and contains a tap-along for basic stress; the other shows you the Zip Up, an easy move to use now to avoid getting overwhelmed by the energy of everyone around you.

Use the Zip Up and some basic tapping now, then come for as many circles as you can. See you there!

Join My Tapping Circle for Pandemic Stress

Come to my online Tapping Circle to release stress and overwhelm caused by the coronavirus pandemic for four Fridays starting March 27th, 2020. It’s free to anyone over 18. 

You might be reacting to stress from the news and changes in your community, work and home from the pandemic in different ways, like

  • Feeling overwhelming emotions,
  • Being unable to think clearly or take action, or
  • Having your body react with tension and even debilitating pain.

If you are reacting in any way that is not working for you, know that you don’t have to be stuck feeling and thinking like this. Tapping is a great way to release stress and get moving again. In this Facebook Live I recorded, I explain all about the Tapping Circle and how it works:

You can get more details for the Tapping Circle, including how to attend it online, at https://unblockresults.com/tappingcircle/ 

That page includes two additional videos. The first one teaches you the mechanics of tapping so you’re ready to tap along in the Tapping Circle, together with a tap-along for basic stress that you can use anytime you feel stressed. The second video shows you an easy move you can do now to avoid getting overwhelmed by the energy of everyone around you, which has been pretty intense in the past few weeks.

Come for just one, or two, or as many circles as you can.

4 Things To Do Now To Lower Your Pandemic Stress

The news is alarming, I know. Wherever you are, know that I am sending thoughts and prayers for the health and safety of you and your loved ones. I also want to send you something more concrete to help you in these times.

I don’t know about you, but I spent last week freaking out as all the changes I’d been hearing about around the world went from distant to my backyard. First the Seattle public schools closed, sending my almost-thirteen-year-old home for two weeks. The next day we heard schools would be closed for at least six weeks. Then the libraries closed. Then all the cafes and restaurants. Each change shrunk my world a bit more.

Now, I understand the need to close these spaces and am more than happy to do my part to slow the spread of the disease, keep my neighbors safe, and limit the impact on our medical communities. But last week I found myself scattered, spending a lot of time on Google News, unable to focus on most things.

The one thing I was able to focus on was my clients, who were also struggling with the changes brought on by this pandemic. Many are business owners who were worried, unable to think of how to keep their businesses afloat. So we tapped on what they were experiencing, lowering their stress so they could access their creativity and find ways to get their businesses back on track.

By Friday, I realized I also needed to lower my own stress levels so I could stop procrastinating and take action in my business. Which I did by Tapping, which is a great stress reliever—when I remember to use it on myself! I also realized that it was important to share tapping with you in whatever ways I can.

So if you are finding your stress levels going up, whether you are a business owner or not, here are some things you can do now to help you lower your stress.

  1. Watch this recording of a Facebook Live I did last week right before everything in Seattle started shutting down. In it I demonstrate two straightforward ways to tap to lower any stress you are feeling from the current situation (as well as some non-tapping actions you can take).
  1. Watch this second recording from a Facebook Live I recorded this week after I had worked with some clients and tapped down my own stress. You’ll not only see how to do an even simpler third way of tapping for stress, you’ll hear exactly why it’s important to be tapping every day, given what’s going on, to prevent future problems.
  1. If you want more, Gene Monterastelli has collected a list of tap-along articles and recordings that Tapping Practitioners around the world are giving away. Here’s that link: https://tappingqanda.com/2020/03/free-tapping-resources-from-around-the-web-responding-to-covid-19/ (thanks, Gene).
  1. Finally, attend my Virtual Tapping Circle (which will be delivered via Zoom). I’m opening it up for all comers—no-charge! We’ll tap together on what people are experiencing (emotionally, mentally, economically) in the midst of this pandemic to lower our stress starting Friday, March 27th, from 8:30 am to 10 am Pacific time (which is 11:30 am-1 pm East Coast time) and meeting Fridays through April 17th. I’ll have more details next week, but I wanted you to clear your calendars now for as many of the Circles as you can attend. Tapping together can be more powerful than tapping alone.

So—right now—try out the resources listed above, and mark your calendar for Virtual Circles at 8:30 am-10 am PDT (11:30 am-1 pm EDT) on the four Fridays starting March 27th.

Please share this post with anyone you think could benefit from these resources. We all need a little extra help now.

Stay safe.

Two Videos to Release Your Holiday Stress

No matter which holidays you celebrate, the end of the year tends to stress out everyone. If that’s you, here are two videos on using Tapping for holiday stress. ‘Tis the Season!

The first video is fairly long. I go into several ways the holiday season can be stressful and how to tap for them, including:
• Overwhelm from your To Do list
• Overwhelm from money pressures of the holidays
• Stress from family relationships
• Grief over a lost loved one
• Stress caused by expectations for how it’s “supposed” to be (which I think is at the root of all the stress)
The last few minutes of the video is a tap-along where you can tap with me to release those unnecessary expectations.

If you don’t have time for the first video because you are toooooooo busy with the holidays, just tap along with the second one. It’s short and is a tap-along focused on releasing some of your overwhelm from your To Do list.

I hope you enjoy both videos. More importantly, I hope you tap along with them so you can relax and find the joy in the season.

And if you’re ready to stop procrastinating and start creating the life you’ve been dreaming of, reach out to set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and see if I can help. Give yourself the gift of the life you’re meant to live!

The Science Behind Tapping

Someone recently asked me to talk about the science behind EFT/Tapping. It’s a question that doesn’t come up too often, but—being the research nerd I am—I was happy to explain what the science shows now.

Check out my new video about how Tapping works and the science behind it.

In the video I describe some of the research about Tapping and how it works. I also apply the theories to the work I do to explain how I think it makes the big changes it does for my clients.

Some of the examples I use show the changes to my clients’ blocks to allowing more money in and keeping it around. It is truly amazing for me to see the changes in my clients’ lives and their futures!

When you’re ready to create the financial life you want, email me to set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and see if the Money Blocks BlockBuster Group is a fit for you.

Transforming Your Money Story

I’ve found that subconscious money blocks are often a big cause of procrastination among my clients. That’s why I decided it was time to offer a group to work directly on the money stories people have to release their money blocks so they can finally transform their financial lives.

Since I announced last week that I’m offering my Money Blocks BlockBuster Group, people have been telling me their money stories—how they experience money come and go in their lives. A business owner told me about their pattern of making plenty of money, then slacking off and making too little money again. There’s been the all-too-common story of someone who can’t bring herself to raise her rates. Another common story I come across is of someone holding themselves back from making more money because some part of them believes they will have to work too hard. And that’s the tip of the iceberg.

If you’d like to hear about these stories and more and what happens when you change them with Tapping, check out the quick video I did.

And if you’re ready to transform a money story or two of your own so you can create the financial life you want, email me to set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and see if the Money Blocks BlockBuster Group is a fit for you.

You can start changing your financial life now. Just picture how that will change your life, your relationships, and your future!
