Two Videos About Getting Rid of Money Blocks With Tapping (and more)

Here is the fourth video in my series on How Tapping Can Help With Money Problems. This one takes you through some different ways to tap on your money blocks:

In this fourth video I explain some of the ways I tap with clients to release their money blocks. You’ll also do some actual tapping with me to get started releasing your own subconscious blocks.

As I mention in the video, I always do my best to give as much information and help as I can in my videos. But I know that sometimes someone watching wants to go further than I can go in the limited time I have. If that sounds like you, then I have something you’re going to want to hear about.

I have a coaching group to get rid of those subconscious money blocks that get in the way of your plans and good intentions. I’m calling it the Money Blocks BlockBuster Group Coaching Program—until I can come up with a catchier title!

Imagine what your life will be like, what you’ll be able to do, the changes you can make when you release your old, negative patterns around money! (If you want some help visualizing that, read what these clients have to say.)

If this calls to you, watch this video that describes the group in more detail and explains why working with a group can be even more effective than just working on your own. Give it a watch now:

When you’re ready to get rid of what’s been causing your money problems, email me. We’ll set up a call to talk about what’s been going on in your financial life and see if the group is right for you.

Don’t wait too long, though—the first group starts next Friday, November 22nd! This group will have rolling admission. That means you can join whenever there is an opening. But . . .

• It’s a small group by design, only 8 people, so if you delay you may have to go on the waitlist and wait until there’s another opening.

• Getting started with the group now means you don’t have to wait until 2020 to start seeing results in your own money situation.

• And, to reward those who take quick action, I’m giving a private one-hour session to each of the first 8 people to sign up. You don’t want to miss that!

So jump on this opportunity now. Start changing your financial picture—and your life—right away!

Identifying Your Specific Money Blocks

Check out the third video in my series on How Tapping Can Help With Money Problems. This one shows you how to identify your specific subconscious money blocks—an important step in releasing them!

In this video I explain how I track down and put words to those types of subconscious money blocks, measure how powerful each one is, and decide which to work on with my clients.

Then I give you ways that you can start uncovering your own subconscious money blocks. Happy Hunting!

A New Resource to Learn What EFT/Tapping Can Do For You

I’ve created a new resource: a regular Facebook Live to talk about EFT (often called “Tapping”) that I do every Monday at 5 pm Eastern / 2 pm Pacific.

It’s meant to share a lot of information about Tapping. So far, I’ve talked about what Tapping is, a brief overview of what it’s being used for all over the world, what to say when you’re tapping, simple tapping for stress, The Top 5 Things You Can Tap On By Yourself, The Top 5 Things You Need a Tapping Practitioner For, and lots more.

This is the first video in a series about How Tapping Can Help With Money Problems. It was supposed to be a single episode, but I realized there is far too much information to do in just one session. So keep a lookout for more videos in this series.

Here’s my video on How to Tell if You Have a Subconscious Money Block. There’s lots of red flags, from different spending problems to never making enough to being on a money roller coaster to…well, there are a lot. Watch the video to hear about more signs.

What If Your Life Were Easy?

Over the past year I’ve noticed an interesting cause of procrastination in both my clients and myself.

Sometimes we procrastinate because it has become soooo hard to do something to reach a goal that we subconsciously decide it’s not worth trying.

And because we feel that it’s too hard to achieve our goal, we find ourselves putting off actions that could achieve that goal. Then we wonder why we’re procrastinating.

I’ve discovered a way to help both my clients and myself make things easier so we can reverse our procrastination. It’s a little woowoo, but it works!

Watch the video to find out the simple trick we’ve been using to make our goals—and even our lives—easier.

If you’re ready to stop struggling so hard to create the life you are meant to live, email me. We’ll set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and see if I can help.

When Your Golden Handcuffs Are Holding You Back

Are you procrastinating on creating the life you want because your job is just too good to leave? Do you say things like:

  • “I’m counting the days until retirement”
  • “I’m bored, but I’ll never find another job that pays as well” or
  • “I can’t do what I want. I have a family to feed.”

If so, your golden handcuffs are keeping you from creating the life you want.

Watch the video to see what I did to unlock my client’s golden handcuffs so she can go after an even better job.

If you want the key to unlock your golden handcuffs, email me. We’ll set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and see if I can help.

The Money Block

While sitting in a long line of traffic, I started thinking of a block that creeps into many people’s decision-making: they try to avoid spending money, but wind up losing opportunities that would have earned them more than they would have spent.

That day, the toll bridge in Seattle had been shut down, so all of us were shunted on to the other, non-toll, bridge. For $3.69, you can usually get across the toll-bridge quickly and easily. The other bridge has become a stop-and-go nightmare as so many drivers choose that route to save money. While I was experiencing the waste of time that many people willingly choose, I was thinking about how gladly I would have paid the toll so I could get back to my office an hour earlier and make some money. Instead, I was spending more time driving, NOT getting work done.

Traffic Jam!

Fooled by a veneer of rationality?

Usually, a quick way to test whether you have an internal block is to look at whether your actions are rational or irrational. If, rationally speaking, you know it makes more sense to get your report into your boss early, or finish your billing on time, or hold your temper around a client, and yet you consistently do the opposite, it’s a fair bet that you have an internal block that is keeping you from acting rationally. Yet when saving money is part of the equation, our actions can sometimes appear rational on the surface even when a closer look shows us they are not. This veneer of rationality surrounding saving money can keep us from recognizing—and challenging—our own block.

Take that pesky toll. For most people reading this, $3.69 is a trivial amount of money. Pay the toll, if it will buy you upwards of half an hour of time, and you can put that half hour into things like completing projects early, getting more work done, or networking—any number of ways to impress your boss or lay the groundwork for a new job, either of which can lead to a lot more money in your pocket than the outlay for the toll. What is a half hour of your time worth, if you had to reach into you wallet and pay for it? If you own your own business, you can use the time to put your efforts into bringing in more clients, creating a new service or product your customers need, or other efforts to make your company more valuable. Finally, at the very least you could use that half hour for some real downtime (going for a walk in the park, playing with your kids, canoodling with your significant other) that will improve your mood, creativity, and/or quality of life. All for the low, low price of $3.69.

Saving Money Can Cost You

But so often, instead of looking at what an outlay brings us, we immediately think “I can’t afford it,” or “I don’t need that.” A lifelong habit of being careful with money—or a lesson painfully learned from a sudden loss of income—leads to an automatic rejection of any expenditure that we are not forced to make. And that can paradoxically lead to a loss of opportunities and therefore a loss of money.

There are a lot of things we “make do” with in order to save money that may in fact be losing us money. Anything that saves you time that you could better use to improve your business or advance your career can fall into this category. This includes everything from buying new software to having an expert prepare your taxes to picking up dinner at the deli counter on the way home. In fact, anything that you do that is not central to your business or career that could be outsourced is something to consider as a trade off for the dollar value of your time, like bookkeeping, chauffeuring the kids around, rotating the tires on your car, or cleaning your home or office.

Ooooh, that last one is an especially big bug-a-boo for a lot of people. Somewhere along the line they learned that it is morally wrong to pay someone else to clean for them when they are able-bodied enough to scrub their own toilets. But look what you lose when you take the time yourself to do that. You take time away from building up your business in ways that only you can. Just about anyone can vacuum; only you can do the rainmaking, or provide your professional services, or do whatever your customers come to you and not the other guy for. And if you work for someone else, taking time to clean your own home means you don’t have that time to get the certification you need for the next step in your career, or to meet someone in your field who could help you get into that great company you’ve had your eye on, or any of the other things that might move you up.

How To Determine Whether to Spend the Money or Not

To find out if you have a block around spending money that is preventing you from actually making money, try this exercise. Take a piece of paper. Draw a line down the middle. On the left-hand side, write down something you have been avoiding and what it would cost you to buy it. On the right-hand side, write down what it would buy you (e.g., “time to work on presentation” or “time to take on one more client”). Estimate what that could be worth to you. Yes, I mean a dollar amount (“a $5000 bonus” or “$30,000 for one additional client relationship over the next five year”). Now, come up with a percentage likelihood that you will achieve that benefit. (e.g., “15% likelihood that it will lead to the bonus” or “100% ability to work with potential client off my waitlist”). Multiply the potential worth by the percentage likelihood. If the resulting number is greater than what you wrote down on the left-hand side of the page, you have just shown yourself that the rational choice is to spend the money here.

Yes, I know your calculation is not really a hard and fast number, but it is a fairly rational way of estimating what the expenditure is likely worth to you. It is certainly better than a knee-jerk reaction of “spending any money is bad.” Then, if the upside looks like it is more valuable to you than what you have to pay to get it, it is time to spend the money. If it is just too speculative, don’t do it.

Got the Money Block?

Now, if the upside is more valuable than what you would pay and you still can’t bring yourself to do it, you’ve got yourself a money block. Do what you can to stay in your head, being rational, about the expenditure instead of just listening to your feelings that are screaming “Don’t waste money!” You’ve already calculated that it wouldn’t be a waste of money. So take a deep breath and make the commitment to doing the rational thing.

Of course, if you are currently working on a shoestring and you really have to pinch every penny, then you will have to trade some of your time for money, at least until you get some leeway into your system. Then, once you have more money that you can use to “buy” time, you will be able to shift your efforts from money-saving to more money-making efforts. For now, do what you have to. But keep doing those calculations. At some point, sooner than you expect, the upside of spending the money will outweigh the downside.
