It’s a curious fact that so many of us set goals that we never reach. Maybe we lose interest and move on to other things. Or we decide it’s too much trouble or that it’s simply not possible for us to achieve what we want. EFT gives us a very efficient way of checking to see whether the goals we’ve set are appropriate for us and indeed whether we actually want to achieve them. By asking a few simple questions and ‘tapping’ on any limiting beliefs that arise from the answers, we can set more realistic goals and goals that we actually feel excited about achieving. If you already use a coaching or goal-setting method for yourself or your clients, incorporate EFT and watch your results improve!
My clinical work has led me to believe that at some level we all have a belief that we’re not good enough which is based on fears we developed in childhood. This article offers you the opportunity to shine a light on those fears, giving you the option to release them if you choose. In releasing fears you release physical tension and free up energy, making you feel better and more capable of performing to your best ability.
This article is a reproduction of my August 2012 newsletter in which I give an introduction to the emerging field of Energy Psychology and its most popular technique, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).

Doing a job that does not allow us to express important parts of ourselves can lead to an imbalance in our psyche and ongoing stress, potentially even leading to physical ill health.

Mystics of all traditions have for centuries been intuiting that reality is not as it seems, espousing such ideas as everything in the universe is an interconnected whole and that reality is in fact a projection of our minds. Scientists, working in the Western reductionist model, have long scoffed at these ideas. That is until quantum physics came along. The quantum physicists’ astounding discoveries are forcing us to question what we think we know and are finding that the mystics may have been light years ahead of the scientists. In this article, I show how we can take these concepts and use them to lead more empowered, fulfilled lives.
In the Western world, the values of production, materialism and consumption have served us well in terms of raising living standards. However, our excessive focus on ‘doing’ has led to imbalance in that we no longer know how to just be – we may even feel guilty when we’re not being productive. There is energy and wisdom in being so it’s time we reclaimed this valuable state of mind.
For centuries, mystics have realised that while we perceive ourselves as separate human beings, in reality we all have a divine nature which binds us inextricably together. This article explains this concept and discusses important implications for our wellbeing and our ability to relate to and connect with one another.
Stanford University Psychologist, Carol S. Dweck, has uncovered an important concept that can either help your life be happy and fulfilled or dramatically decrease your success and enjoyment of life. Cultivating a growth mindset and kicking your fixed mindset can make a world of difference.
