EFT tapping helps us drill down right to the “blockages” – it’s physical and invokes our greatest BS detector – our emotional self. Feel good? It’s worked/working. Feel bad or the same? Nothing’s change, keep at it.

EFT cleanses the mind, so what can we do to nurture the soul, once we are free of these god-awful blocks?

Meditation, affirmation, intentions – all of this is good, and I also think cleansing the soul is also important. This is what I’ve found to help accomplish this. (IF YOU CAN THINK OF OTHER METHODS/TECHNIQUES that enrichen the soul and spirit, please share)

Ho’oponopono (Huna tradition)

The basic premise:

Ho’oponopono is not a religion With Ho’oponopono there are no teachers, gurus or high priests. Ho’oponopono practitioners know that the Creator is the only teacher there is. yes, there are those who are more experienced in the practice of Ho’oponopono, but they are regarded in the same way you would regard an older brother or sister.

Ho’oponopono is a tool for atonement, for correcting errors, erasing the effects of past actions and memories that cause havoc and grief in our lives, the lives of others and on mother nature as a whole.

Ho’opononpono has but one requirement: You have to be willing to accept that you are responsible for everything that has happened/is happening in your life. For a lot of people, this is a deal-breaker. If you aren’t willing to be responsible, this system will not work for you – find something else, but if you’ve embraced concepts like the Law of Attraction, you should be okay with this. (I know, it’s still TOUGH)

When faced with any adverse situation, the Ho’oponopono practitioner will immediately ask “What is it in me that is causing this event to take place, this person to behave this way, this sickness to manifest? etc”. Ho’oponopono practitioners know that blaming others is a sure way for making sure of the recurrence of a problem.

There is a lot of free information on the web about Ho’oponopono and I recommend you do a little exploring. In the meantime, here is the basic cleansing meditation that’s common in all of the Ho’oponopono rituals:

“I am sorry”
“Please forgive me”
“I love you”
“And I thank you”

The following explanation comes from the following source: http://www.thereisaway.org

“Dear Father:”
Here we acknowledge the Creator who gives Unconditional Love. If you believe that you are the result of an explosion or worse still that you created yourself, you are going to have a lot of trouble with this one.
The word Father means “Giver Of Life” and I am sure you realise that it has nothing to do with bearded patriarchs.
Addressing the Creator is fundamental to this process, since only the Creator can fix the mess that we (and our ancestors) have created.

“I am sorry”
This statement opens the door to atonement. The moment you take responsibility for any negative manifestation you experience or witness you also create an opportunity for healing.
The apology is not directed to the Creator. The Creator is Spirit and does not need nor care about apologies.
The apology is an acknowledgement that we are sorry for whatever it is that we (or our ancestors before us) have done to cause the adverse circumstance to take place.
There is no need to grovel, just a simple “I am sorry” will do.

“Please forgive me”
We are asking for forgiveness for having forgotten how much the Creator loves us.
We are asking for forgiveness for having shut out the Creator from our lives and missing out on all the wonderful experiences that we could have had.
We ask for forgiveness with the absolute certainty that it has already been granted. The Creator is Spirit and is Unconditional Love, incapable of experiencing feelings of anger, resentment and all the other ego related neurotic behaviours that afflict humans.
It is important to note here that Ho’oponopono practitioners never have to forgive anyone, since they realise that all wrongdoing is the result of their own wrong action or memories–past or present.

“I love you”
When Jesus was asked “which is the greatest commandments of them all” he surprised everyone (typical) and stated “You shall love the Lord Your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”
Love is a great healing power. Sending the Creator an SMS of love will reverberate through your psyche and generate an immediate feeling of well being.
Once again being pure Spirit, the Creator, does not need your love, but the very act of thinking loving thoughts will tune your mind to that frequency with remarkable and immediate results.

“And I thank you”
As stated earlier, whatever your petition or concern, the moment you take responsibility for its occurrence and seek a way out–you are guaranteed a response.
Almost invariably the response will never be what you expect (or in some cases want)–but what you need to start the process of healing or reconstruction.
Your “thank you” is the acknowledgement that your petition has been heard and acted upon–that is all.

Yesterday I went deep – exploring EFT. While listening to Carol Look’s podcast, I discovered some very profound insights from Emanuel Swendenborg, an enlightened soul who lived in the late 1700s. What follows are some of the key takeaways:

Experiencing Heaven or Hell while living on Earth:
Keys to living in Heaven – Focus on what is Life Sustaining

The most profoundly life sustaining things; things that live in Heaven that you can give your attention to are:

I don’t have love, I am love
I don’t have God Consciousness, I am God Consciousness
I don’t have value, power and worth – I AM IT

And as God Consciousness:
I can’t create a learning experience that I don’t need
Everything I am doing is bringing me enlightenment and I can be grateful for it

I can trust my human experience
I can trust where I am going
I can trust what I am doing

These things live in Heaven.

“We have to live according to what we love – if you give your attention to a limited thing (how am I going to pay the bills; everyone is going to be happy except me, tec.), you have to live within the confinds of that…

If you give your attention to an unlimited truth, you get to live in an unlimited place

And if you give your attention to a limited thing, you have to live within the confinds of that

“The human experience is such a profoundly spiritually accelerating opportunity. Because when we as spiritual creatures come to the planet, and inherit the physical body, it comes complete with the nervous system. So here on the Earth, we have to “feel” the consequences of what we give our attention to…”

Focus on what is life sustaining, unlimited – until you feel it. The nervous system keeps it real, keeps you honest…

“My car accident” “The car accident”
________________________________________________________________________________________

Focus until you FEEL IT – The feeling body is the ultimate higher truth barometer …The intellect has a very supple talent of deceiving us (“Oh no no no we’ve already dealt with this…”)

Trama – car accident – you talk about it for 3 months – you own it “My car accident” it’s just an experience: “The car accident”

YOU are a force of Diviine Love, so when a car accident appears in your life – you don’t keep owning it. It’s “the car accident” it’s not who you are…

Languaging is extremely important in letting these experiences come and go, to get through it which we are designed to do…

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

There are two forks in the road: One fork, you are only as good at something as you have practiced at – most of us are very practiced at being self-judgemental, self-critical, and self-diminishing.

The other fork in the road – “If you are looking for the magic door that leads to an elevator that opens where you can get in to it and you can start ascending – it’s GRATITUDE. Start practicing being grateful for the health that you do have, the money that you do have, the people in your live that love, encourage and support you today and allow yourself to be possessed by an attitude of gratitude because what that does is that it focuses your attention towards what lives in an unlimited place. It allows you to start living a heavenly existance.”

To make a radical shift in your life – Gratitude is the accelerator…

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

You have to accept where you are right now and it doesn’t mean you have to be stuck…

You can’t change what you are not conscious o “Accepting where you are will allow you to take the journey to change”

The Universal Truth – There is only the One; there is always infinite abundance (There is only one God) – one Love, one Life, one Abundance and we are all sharing it…

_______________________________________________________________________________________________
Ego – Frontal Lobe- Designed for solving limited problems in a limited world (pay bills, balance checkbook, dress, droom) Deceptive. It resists acceptance; ego contaminants the present moment because it wants to blame it for x…

The EGO subtly hates the present moment – prefers reliving the past, living in the future

It’s a temporal problem solver…

5% of your daily life are you solving a temporal problem in a temporal world

Relationship problems – can’t be solved by the ego/intellect…

To Friends and Family:

For many of us – myself included, 2010 was a year of transition and growth.  For me personally, 2009 was a year of tremendous challenge.

For most of the year, life demanded from me that I “walk in faith.”  To continue walking towards a better day, even when there seemed to be zero evidence that better days were to come.  And within this challenge I found opportunity – and a life lesson.  The lesson was:  To improve your life – focus on helping to improve someone else’s.

A Year of Renewal  – Over the course of the last two years, I have received many gifts:  words of encouragement and support, advice as to taking the next step and then another, connections, resources, money and opportunities – all were presented to me freely and willingly.  And in turn, I did what I could to reciprocate this to those who needed the same from me.

For those of you who have played a role in this, know that I am forever grateful.


Lights at the end of the tunnel – This past year has been amazing really.   The fall semester’s Intro to Entrepreneurship class at Shenandoah’s School of Business was the first class to use my book as a part of the course curriculum.  Speaking in front of about 50 students, I presented additional insights and fielded tough and thoughtful questions- something I’m hoping to be able to do with future generations of students…

I successfully launched The Lazarus Group and most importantly, was presented with about a half dozen short-term projects with various startups, leading to two great clients (one an old and dear friend and business man and another new to me).  What makes them great?  Well, they both had very interesting complex projects with which I could create great value in addressing.  The results have been the creation of another book:  “The Five Pillars to Prosperity:  Essentials of Faith-based Wealth Building,” penned by Yaqub Mirza and the other a very interesting startup due to fire up in 2011.

Along the way, I was happy to donate about 15 hours to advise F.A.I.T.H. a mature non-profit organization based in Herndon and take on a budding entrepreneur whose making a big splash in the networking and event creation world.  It feels good to be providing value for others and god willing, this will only continue in the coming years.

2011 – Another book in the works – Next year, I’m looking to continue to develop and grow my consulting practice and in conjunction with one of my oldest friends, set to write my second nonfiction work.  This book will focus on and walk the reader through using enterprise architecture to transform a business.  This is something that is occurring extensively within the U.S. Government – we’re looking to bring these practices and strategies to Main street.  We’re aiming for a Summer release – fingers crossed…

The “Real” Project for 2011 – I’ve ended 2010 immersing myself in personal development, psychology and prosperity consciousness thinking.  I wanted to end the year strong, by planting the seeds for the coming year’s “harvest.”

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
The mind is everything. What we think we become.” — Buddha

It’s my hope and wish that all of you find yourselves thriving in 2011 and beyond.

Wishing you the best New Year to come.

Namaste,

Chris
