I've been practicing and leading EFT for over 4 years now and even though I have seen some miraculous things, I'm still surprised and heartened at the amazing things that happen when you tap. It can change your life in an instant!
This is my story for how I manifested my dream life in Bali... I was at a cross roads in my life and had been yearning for spiritual community for a long time. I had plans to move in with my boyfriend to a great high rise apartment in the city. It all sounded amazing, except there was one problem... Something didn't feel right. I was in love but knew in my heart it wasn't were I was meant to be.
Once I had this realization, I was pretty upset because I knew I had to break promises and leave... I tapped on ending my relationship. I said:
Even though I'm really in love I know I need to leave and that makes sad.
I'm sad but that's ok
It's safe to be sad. It's safe to feel this way.
But I'm confused... I don't want to leave
I need to leave
I don't want to leave
I need to leave
Even though I don't want to leave - I know I need to. I accept these feelings in my body.
It's possible that I will make the right choice.
Even though I'm breaking my promise I am following my heart and that's what is important.
Even though it's a tough decision, I'm curious to see what will happen!
Once I moved through the anxiety from leaving a long term relationship, I began to search for what was next. I knew I wanted playful spiritual community in the sunshine.
Whenever I have something I want that's important to me - I always do a manifestation tap.
At the top of the page I wrote (in present tense):
I live in fun, vibrant, happy, honest, playful spiritual community in The Tropics.
Then under I wrote my doubts, a few of which were:
Yeah but they might not like me
Yeah but I might not fit in
Yeah but I don't know if it even exists
What if I get bored and don't like it?
What if I'm making the wrong decision?
Once I had my list, I rated each point with it's intensity - I had a lot of high charged numbers holding me back from finding my dream. So I tapped through each thing, neutralizing each of them as I went. I would say:
Even though I want to live in playful, spiritual community in the tropics I have my doubts it's possible
I admit I have these doubts and I love myself anyway
I want to find spiritual community but... I don't know if they would like me or if I would fit in
I might not fit in
I might not fit in
They might not like me
I might not fit in
Even though I have this fear I deeply and completely love and accept myself."
After a few more rounds of tapping down the fear it was greatly reduced. So I went on to say
Even though part of me is still worried they might not like me, it's ok!
It was hard growing up, I didn't always fit in. I choose to send love through space and time back to the younger version of me...
I send love to this left over feeling. It's ok to feel this way!!!!
Maybe they will like me... I love and accept myself!
Maybe I will find a community of loving people who love me too.
I choose to give myself permission to be completely who I am
I am a good person
It's safe to be me
I love and respect myself deeply and completely.
I kept tapping through each point in a similar fashion until the list didn't have a hold over me anymore.
Within a day or two my life dramatically shifted. I emailed friends who have traveled many amazing places around The World and one of their suggestions was Ubud, Bali.
I was in Italy at the time and in my search I immediately found a one way ticket to Bali for only $550! I then logged onto couchsurfing (a website for travelers). I was going start a thread in the forum "Looking for spiritual community to live in." I didn't have to.
A community house had already posted saying they were looking for people like me and had a spare room. Within a day we had emailed back and forth and they invited me to stay. Then a random friend replied to that same email thread saying he would give me a lift from the airport because he was going in that same direction the day of my arrival... So I also had a free lift from the airport waiting for me.
It was like the red carpet had been rolled out because I followed the yesses - it was amazing. I only stayed in the community house for just over a month. I made special friends there but needed my own space, so repeated the manifestation process.. I tapped to manifest the place of my dreams - And again I felt rewarded by The Universe!
Within a few days I met a young Balinese man near the river and he knew people on this beautiful trail I had never heard of. It was nearby and we walked up and down and he spoke to people in Balinese and got me a really good deal on a deliciously beautiful one bedroom villa in the forest. It was next to the river so I could swim, and it had such a beautiful, peaceful energy.
I lived in Bali for 7 months and grew so much from my time there. If it hadn't been for tapping, my life would be very different. Thanks to tapping I was able to follow my heart and meet some of the most amazing, uplifting people I could have hoped to meet.
