How Does EFT/Tapping Work?

One of the most common questions I’m asked about EFT/Tapping is “How does it work?”

For the full answer, watch my video.

Here’s my abbreviated answer.

For a long time my answer was two-fold. First, I’d say no one really knows how it works, but I don’t care because I know it does and there’s research that shows it is effective.

Second, there was research that showed acupuncture and acupressure, which use the same points as Tapping, send a message of safety and calm to the amygdala in the brain that interrupts old connections there that trigger emotional responses.

The research has advanced since then. Now it tells us:

• Tapping leads to the downregulation of the amygdala, including a measurable lowering of the stress hormone cortisol. (Kinda the same thing I was saying in the past about that message of safety and calm, but in a more academic tone.)

• The results hold after we stop tapping because of Memory Reconsolidation, a way to permanently change the emotional component of a traumatic memory.

This explains why Tapping is a great way to release Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and phobias, but it still doesn’t exactly explain why MY tapping works.

Watch the video for my best guess on why Tapping works on success blocks like clients’ money ceilings.

When releasing subconscious success blocks, I rarely work directly with specific memories anymore. Many of these blocks come from multiple messages and years of experiences in childhood, many of which were not traumatic.

Plus, I’ve found—and created—faster Tapping techniques to effectively and permanently release success blocks than going through memories, one after the other, to get rid of all their emotional content.

So, while I believe I am using Tapping to send the message of safety and calm to the amygdala (i.e., “downregulating” it), I don’t know that I’m doing “Memory Reconsolidation” to make the changes permanent.

I’m guessing that there is some sort of Memory Reconsolidation for ideas that’s happening in the brain.

So I’m back to saying Tapping works on my clients’ subconscious success blocks. I don’t really know how, but I know that it does.

I’ll have to wait for the research to catch up to me to explain it all with hard science.

Hope that was interesting.

Until next time . . .

Happy Tapping!

Why Extra Money Doesn’t Stick Around

Think about the last time you had some extra money. Not just a couple bucks (or pounds or euros)—a significant amount.

What happened?

If you’re like most people, that extra money just . . . went away.

Maybe an unexpected bill came in.

Or you found some great opportunity to spend it on.

Or for some reason the next month—or two, or three—was lean, with less income than usual.

It’s not just you. This happens all the time.

But why?

Watch my video for an in-depth look at why your subconscious may be making the “extra” money just go away:

Well, the short answer is that having that extra money (i) doesn’t match how you see yourself and (ii) conflicts with your internalized, subconscious beliefs around money.

Let’s start with those subconscious beliefs, which I call “success blocks.” Some of the common success blocks you might have are:

  • A subconscious belief that rich people are bad, greedy, or evil. So your subconscious protects you from becoming one of them by getting rid of the money as fast as possible.

  • A feeling that having too much isn’t safe—because you’ll be rejected, or targeted, or it will get taken away. So, again, your subconscious protects you by making sure you don’t keep it.

  • A money ceiling—an amount that fits the lifestyle you grew up with. Even though you’re capable of bringing in more, your subconscious puts the brakes on whenever you start to make that happen.

Those are just a few of the common success blocks around money my clients come to me with. And there’s lots more.

If you’ve been through enough of those experiences where you can’t seem to hold on to extra money or sustain that level of income, you may start to see yourself consciously as unlucky.

Or no good with money.

Or a bad business person.

It’s really none of those things. It’s just that your subconscious needs to be changed.

That’s where Tapping comes in. It’s the only way I’ve found to actually change the subconscious.

First, identify and tap to release your negative success blocks around money.

Then create and internalize a new identity—a new picture of who you are with more money. Tapping can help with that, too.

(Some people will tell you that you should skip straight to changing your internalized identity around money. That can work, but if your subconscious success blocks are too strong your new picture just won’t stick. That’s why I release the old blocks first.)

Then, with the old blocks gone and the new identity internalized, you’ll start to let the money in. And keep it.

Because your subconscious will accept that higher level of income as your “new normal.”

If you’d like some help creating a new normal for your income, just reply to this email. Let’s talk about what’s going on with you and see if Tapping may be the way to let more money in for you.

Happy Tapping!

It’s Hard Right Now—I Hope These Make It Easier.

A lot of people are struggling.

If you’re not—if everything is going great for you right now—that’s wonderful!

But life is still hard for many people, so if that’s you, please know that you’re not alone.

It isn’t just what we’re going through with the pandemic. There are a lot of people going through really hard times now for many reasons that the rest of us don’t know about.

And I know that it’s hitting business owners in all kinds of ways, both personally and professionally.

So…

I’ve got three things to tell you about that I hope will help.

Watch the video for all the details:

First of all, here are two free opportunities:

  • Free tickets to a 3-day virtual retreat starting Wednesday, May 12, 2021. If you’ve been thinking about writing (a book, articles, emails, even better social media copy) and want to leverage what you write for more impact and money, you’ll get powerful training at the Writing for Impact retreat.

    I’ll be one of the speakers on Friday, so you can come as my guest. Get your ticket at https://saraconnellcoaching.lpages.co/grant-spring-retreat-opt-in-page/

  • Three free tap-along videos to shift common blocks. You’ll get these when you take my Uncover Your Success Blocks quiz for business owners and find out where your subconscious success blocks fall—in Mindset, Visibility, or Profitability.

    Take the quiz at https://unblockresults.com/qz.

Finally, I’m holding a Quickstart Session day next week on Tuesday, May 18th.

I rarely offer these sessions, but I’ve set aside six 45-minute slots for people who have never worked with me before to come in and tap one-on-one with me.

My specialty is releasing subconscious success blocks that hold entrepreneurs back from what they want for their businesses, like more clients, more visibility, and more money. I’m happy to work on any of those, of course.

But for this day, you don’t have to be an entrepreneur. And you can work on anything you want. (Well except for mental health issues. The Law won’t let me do that.)

I’m offering these QS Sessions at a much reduced price. Usually they’re $347. On the 18th, they’re $97.

If you want one, just reply to this email. I’ll let you know what times are available and send you an invoice.

So the sooner you decide, the more times will be available.

(If you’re a current or former client, maybe someone you know could really use this right now. Please feel free to forward this email to them and tell them why you think working with me could help.)

Please take me up on whichever of these calls to you.

Until next time . . .

Happy Tapping!

The Three Internal Blocks Most Women Face

Women leaders have a lot to contend with out there in the world that male leaders don’t—cultural expectations, laws, even violence.

Those external blocks definitely have to be changed!

But what holds most women back more than anything else is their internal blocks.

The subconscious rules and beliefs they’ve internalized that have them stop themselves before they ever come up against any external block.

Have you noticed you stopping yourself?

I definitely know I’ve held myself back at times.

What I’ve found from working with many women business owners is that these internal blocks fall into three categories.

  • Mindset—how you see yourself subconsciously as a leader. Do you know you deserve to lead a great team and have your voice heard? Or do you find yourself settling for what’s “good enough?”
  • Visibility—how you show up. Do you let yourself speak and write powerfully and consistently in your networking, on stage, and on camera? Are you letting others see the real you? Or are you hiding by trying to do things the “right” way?
  • Profitability—this covers all things money. Are you making the kind of money you are capable of and your peers seem to bring in easily? Do you manage it well, or does it seem like you can never get ahead? Do you use your money to grow your impact?

(That’s why I started my MVP Club for women leaders, where we release blocks in those three areas.)

Monday was International Women’s Day.

I did a short video celebrating and talking about how we need more women leaders now, how women hold themselves back in these three areas more than men, and what to do about it.

Watch the video here.

If you have any blocks in any of those three areas, please know this.

You are here for a reason.

You are needed now more than ever.

Because no one can do what you do in the way you do it.

So if you find you are holding yourself back, pleeeeeeease find someone to release those blocks.

You know me. I’m big on using Tapping to get rid of internal blocks, but if Tapping’s not for you please find another modality that works.

You don’t have to be stuck with internal blocks holding you back.

Be the leader that the World needs you to be now.

Happy Tapping!

What Does Success Look Like For You?

How do you define success?

As one of my clients reminded me, it’s important to get clear on what success means to you. Otherwise, you’re going to be chasing somebody else’s dream, not following your own.

Here’s how she turned her back on the conventional view of success, and the two questions that can help you define it for yourself:

So don’t just listen to the next “guru” who says—

You need to make a certain amount each month to be successful.

Or build a following of tens of thousands of people on FB.

Or write a book.

Or launch an online program.

Or anything else.

Get clear on what “success” looks like for you.

What you truly want.

To figure that out, ask yourself two questions:

What do you want your life to look like? Do you want to speak to thousands around the world? Make a ton of money? Work less and spend more time with family? Or something else?

What kind of legacy do you want to leave? Do you want to set your family up financially to follow their dreams? Train a small group in a method you’ve created so it lives on after you’re gone? Or . . .

Clients have come to me to release blocks to knowing what they want. Once a block was gone, they could go after what they wanted. (Their version of success.)

But let’s be clear—Tapping freed them up to know their own heart and mind.

I didn’t tell them what they wanted. Or how to be “successful.”

They decided for themselves.

You get to do that too.

So don’t let anyone else tell you what success is.

Not even me. 😉

I firmly believe that, the more you follow what calls to your own heart, the more of an impact you will have.

Whatever that impact is meant to be.

That’s how you become the leader you’re meant to be.

That’s the leader the world needs now.

And that’s true success.

I’d love to know what success looks like for you. Please shoot me a message or email me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com. Tell me what calls to your heart.

Until next time . . .

Happy Tapping!

If You’ve Been Holding Yourself Back…

Last week I realized something.

In fact, it was a Divine Download. (I didn’t even know I could have one of those!)

Watch the video to hear about how it showed up for me.

Here’s what I journaled:

It’s time for all people with a bigger vision—who want to help others, who want to change the world, or just their corner of the world—to step up.

It’s time for you to have more money. A lot more money. Money to pay for the support and wield the influence you need to do what you are called to do. For all of us.

It’s time for you to trust yourself. To know you are right. To know that you are here to make a big difference.

It’s time for you to stop playing small. To let yourself be seen.

To step up and lead.

No more “Who, me? I’m not that important.”

YES. YOU. ARE!

The world needs you, now more than ever.

The world needs the biggest you that you can be.

It’s not just about taking care of yourself and your family (although that is important).

It’s about being fully you. Bringing all the power you have to your purpose so you can have the biggest impact.

To counteract what’s wrong in the world now.

The time for playing small is over.

You are called to something too important to let your old way of thinking and being hold you back.

It’s time to leave that behind.

To step up.

To lead.

For that you need money. You need support. You need visibility.

You need to believe in yourself.

So do what it takes to release what’s holding you back.

The world can’t wait anymore.

We need you NOW.

So that’s what I journaled last week. (Well, I cleaned it up a bit. But not much.)

I wanted you to see it.

Because you and your purpose are too important to play small.

The world needs the leader you can be.

Happy Tapping!

If You Keep Saying “I Can’t Afford It”, This Is For You

I have some tough love for you today.

First, you should know that my Money Blocks Solution starts this Friday, October 9th.

Which means tomorrow (Tuesday the 6th) is the very last day to reach out to me and set up a call to see if there’s a fit between what you’re struggling with and my group.

That’s so we’re both ready to dive deep on Friday and start releasing what’s holding you back from making—and keeping—more money.

So I want to talk about what I know is one of the big reasons you might be thinking it’s not the right time for you to join.

Money.

I get it. It can feel like you shouldn’t pay money for something right now when money is the problem.

But hang on. How long have you been struggling with money?

If this is a pattern in your life, what’s going to change that pattern?

How are you going to have more money to invest in yourself the next time I offer the Money Blocks Solution?

By now, you probably sense that your money issues start inside of you. That there’s something keeping you from doing (or not doing) the things that will make you more money. Or keep your money around longer.

I call those internal, subconscious obstacles to improving your financial situation “money blocks.”

If you don’t get rid of them, they’re just going to keep running the show.

Keep you stuck.

Right where you are.

And if nothing changes, how will you have more money to invest in the group—or anything else you truly want—in 2021?

Or ‘22? Or ‘23? Or . . .

Plus, the longer you drag your feet on changing what’s getting in your way, the less money you will make over the course of your life.

Think about it.

If I could wave a magic wand and get rid of your money blocks today, you would start seeing more money come in. NOW.

And that would start adding up—and compounding—right away.

So the longer you wait to get rid of your money blocks, the less money you will have in your life. By a lot.

The less money . . .
• To take care of your family
• To take care of yourself
• To grow your business
• To live the way you want to
• And to do what you are here to do!

The longer you drag your feet to release your money blocks, the less money you will have in your life for all of these important things.

So if you are saying “Oh, but I don’t have the money to work with you now, Nancy,” well, then, when are you going to have it?!

Okay, no, Tapping is not a magic wand. I can’t get rid of all your blocks today. But it does get rid of money blocks.

And it works much faster than anything else I’ve ever seen.

In fact, some people working with me start noticing improvements in their actions and their money within the first week!

So I really want you to get this. If you have a money block preventing you from getting and keeping more money, waiting until you have more money to get rid of that block just won’t work.

That’s backwards!

Instead, I want to stand up for you today, especially if you can’t stand up for yourself right now.

Please. Know this:
It’s time
• You are worth it.

Reach out to me. Email me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com.

You can get rid of your money blocks.

Let’s do this.

Now.

It’s Time

Are you struggling to make the kind of money that would let you breathe easier?

That other people seem able to earn?

That you know you’re capable of making?

If so, then it’s time.

It’s time to let more money into your life.

It’s time to make the changes you need to so you can start living the way you’ve been feeling is out of reach.

It’s time to change your mind.

What am I talking about? Well, you know those money problems you have? They start out as money blocks in your subconscious.

And, because they’re in your subconscious, you usually only see the results in the real world, with no idea why you keep struggling, year after year. (Boy, do I know how crazy-making that can be!)

Luckily, your subconscious can be changed.

I know this because I’ve been getting rid of clients’ subconscious blocks to having more money for years. Literally.

It is amazing what they start seeing financially as soon as their blocks start to melt!

Right now I have two ways for you to get started making the same kind of change.

First, join my Money Blocks Solution. It’s a small, select group of people who are ready to change their old patterns and start having more money in their life. Together we go deep into the specific causes of each of their blocks, then release them. Here are more details: https://unblockresults.com/money-blocks-solution/

To see if the group is right for you, just reach out. DM me or email me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com. We’ll set up your free Money Blocks Assessment to identify your subconscious blocks to having more money in your life and see if there is a fit with the group.

And if you contact me before Friday, October 2nd—tomorrow—you get my early bird bonus as soon as you sign up for the group.

The bonus is my online program Release Your Money Blocks, filled with videos you tap along with on your own schedule to release common money blocks, raise your money ceiling, and even make the Law of Attraction start working for you.

I very rarely make Release Your Money Blocks available to anyone outside my private coaching clients, but when I do I sell it for $297. You can get it for free as a reward for taking action now.

Don’t wait though. To be eligible for that early bird special you have to reach out to me for your assessment by tomorrow (Friday).

Now I know this might not be the right time for you to join my group. And I don’t want you to wait to start changing your mind to let more money into your life.

So here’s the second way you can get started changing your subconscious . . .

You can get my Release Your Money Blocks between now and the end of the day on Friday, October 9th, for only $99. Yep, that’s way more than half off the usual price. Here you go: https://unblockresults.com/product/release-your-money-blocks/

Because it’s time.

Hit a Money Plateau? My Money Blocks Solution Starts Soon!

Are you stuck? Plateau-ed out? Can’t make more money no matter what you try?

Man, do I know how frustrating that can be!

Fortunately, there is an answer.

In my Money Blocks Solution, we use Tapping to rewrite your subconscious financial programming, getting rid of your money blocks so you can start earning—and keeping—the kind of money you know you are capable of.

It creates truly amazing results.

Don’t take my word for it, though. Listen to someone who has gone through it.

Here’s Ciara:

Before doing the Money Blocks Solution, Ciara was doing work she didn’t like and actively avoiding accepting money for it!

After joining the group, she stepped up and started creating the business she’d been hoping for.

Within a week of her first session Ciara was able to network and send out proposals.

And after finishing the Money Blocks Solution, she went from avoiding promoting herself and resisting getting paid for her services to making $5000 in her business the very next month!

Now, in spite of all the uncertainty COVID has brought, Ciara has bounced back and is not only ready to move forward with some passion projects, she’s also willing to get paid for them—something she knows she wouldn’t have been able to do before we worked together.

If you’ve been holding yourself back, limiting the kind of money coming in, you owe it to yourself to at least have a conversation about what’s really going on.

So reach out.

We’ll set up your free Money Blocks Assessment Call to identify your subconscious blocks to earning and keeping more money and to see if the group is right for you.

Now I know what can happen. You think “That’s a good idea,” and you put it on your To Do list to think about later.

But life happens, other stuff comes up, and before you know it you’ve missed the deadline.

I don’t want that to happen to you. So I’m giving you a reason to reach out NOW.

If you reach out to me by this Friday, October 2nd, to schedule a Money Blocks Assessment Call, and sign up for the Money Blocks Solution (which starts on October 9th), you get my early bird bonus.

What’s the early bird bonus? So glad you asked!

It’s my online program you tap along with to release common money blocks, raise your money ceiling, and even make the Law of Attraction start working for you.

This is already getting long, so I won’t say much more here. I promise to tell you more about the online program in my next post, though—including a way to get it even if now is not the right time to join the group.

In the meantime, reach out. Set up your Money Blocks Assessment call so you don’t miss your chance for that early bird bonus.

I’m looking forward to finding out what’s going on with you and the money you should be making!

It Can Be Easy To Make More Money. Seriously.

I know, I know. With a heading like that I probably sound like a used car salesman. But hear me out.

There’s a way you’re making it hard for yourself to make more money.

And you can change that. Here’s how I know . . .

Let me tell you about Jenny.

When Jenny came to me, she was worn out.

Her business wasn’t making enough money.

She knew she could be making more. She knew she should be making more. She even knew what she had to do to make more money.

But she wasn’t doing it.

What was up with that?!

In the past, Jenny had tried everything she could to grow her business.
• She’d followed numerous marketing experts.
• She joined as many networking groups as possible.
• She pushed herself to have a presence in every social media outlet she could.

She drove herself to do more. And more. And more.

It wasn’t enough. She just wasn’t making the money. And she didn’t know what else to do.

Jenny was exhausted and empty.

She had even found herself slowing down recently, not doing the things she knew would work.

It was baffling. She truly wanted to make more money. Why wasn’t she just doing the “sure things” to make more?

We started working together and quickly uncovered a subconscious block Jenny had to making more money. The block sounded something like:
• “Making money is too hard.
• It’s painful.
• I have to give it everything I’ve got to make money.
• So If I make more money, I’ll get sick
• If I make too much money, it will kill me!”

This block had been running in her subconscious for a long time, so of course she hadn’t been letting herself make money easily.

It had to be hard.

In fact, as far as her subconscious was concerned, it wasn’t safe to make any more money at all.

So we tapped and released that subconscious block. As we released it, it got easier and easier for Jenny to figure out what would actually make more money in her business.

She started just doing what would work and stopped doing all the other things.

And Jenny made more money. Easily.

The end . . .

Okay, I have a confession. There is no “Jenny.”

At least no single Jenny.

This is actually my story. And it’s the story of sooo many of the clients who work with me.

Believing that it’s too hard to make money is a really common block.

But it’s a block you don’t have to keep around!

Seriously.

If there’s even a tiny part of you that’s curious if this might be true for you, it’s worth a conversation.

Email me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com.

We’ll set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and see if there’s a fit with what we do in my Money Blocks Solution: https://unblockresults.com/money-blocks-solution/.

We’re starting on October 9th.

I have a spot for you.
