WATCH: 'I'll Be Happy When...'

(0) Comments | Posted December 11, 2014 | 5:00 PM

Happiness is something we too often put off until certain criteria are met. During this holiday season and on into the new year, I hope you might allow yourself to be happy now. I hope this helps...

If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the "Tap Out Your Fears" series -- which explains the basics of EFT -- click here.

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

For a picture of the tapping points -- and more info on EFT -- click here.

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at

For EFT with kids, please visit:

WATCH: Permission to Feel Good

(0) Comments | Posted December 5, 2014 | 7:44 PM

I believe our default position is happiness (peace, joy, love, etc.) but it's only under certain conditions that we allow ourselves to feel that. The rules about when that can happen are based on our programming, and vary from person to person. What if we could rewrite those rules and...

WATCH: 'Tis the Season to Overeat...

Having just celebrated Thanksgiving, it's now officially the holiday season... traditionally a time of mixing an abundance of food with family gatherings (and all the drama that might be involved in that). For many, this creates a perfect storm for overindulging. I hope this will help you practice good self-care...

WATCH: 'What's Up With Me?' (Questioning Behavior Rather Than Attacking It)

(0) Comments | Posted November 13, 2014 | 5:48 PM

Too often, we get frustrated with ourselves about our behavior without considering that part of us believes there's a good reason for that behavior. Being compassionate with ourselves and looking at what is really going on will be much more beneficial that beating up on ourselves. I hope this helps...

WATCH: Resisting Action on Little Things

(0) Comments | Posted November 7, 2014 | 10:13 AM

Life is full of little things that need to be done... and for various reasons we may find ourselves avoiding getting them done, even when it would be relatively easy to do so. There may be more going on there than you realize (it's not just that you are lazy...!)....

WATCH: Feeling Defensive

(0) Comments | Posted October 30, 2014 | 8:44 PM

As I've often said, self-sabotage is misguided self-love. We do some really questionable things because of an unconscious belief that such behavior will somehow keep us safe. The need to defend our ego is one of those things that can often snap us out of being a reasonable, rational and...

WATCH: Stuck in 'Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda'?

(0) Comments | Posted October 23, 2014 | 6:39 PM

As we go through life, chances are we will make one or two (or a billion...) choices that we regret. As if that's not troublesome enough, we then waste a lot of valuable time dwelling on these choices, futilely trying to erase and rewrite history. You've got better uses for...

WATCH: Expecting to Be Afraid (Anticipatory Fear)

(0) Comments | Posted October 15, 2014 | 5:16 PM

It's uncomfortable enough when we experience fear in challenging moments... and we often make it worse by experiencing that fear when we are anticipating such moments in the future. Sometimes we even mark them on the calendar: "Bad stuff happening today -- be afraid." Hey, why put off until tomorrow...

WATCH: 'Should' You Feel Bad?

(0) Comments | Posted October 13, 2014 | 1:17 PM

One of the reasons we tend not to feel as good as we could as often as we could is that we have a lot of training in how to feel bad. Not only are we shown how to do this, we are often encouraged to do so. In fact,...

Wouldn't it be lovely if others always saw things our way...? Nah... probably be pretty boring, actually. But even though it would be dull and stifling if everyone always agreed with us, it can be challenging and even painful when they don't. I hope this helps...

Although most of us have been heavily programmed to believe otherwise, we really do have the ability to choose how we feel. I hope this will help you make a more joyful choice...

What we focus on expands. Wouldn't it behoove us, then, to let go of any lack mentality we might have and trade up for an abundance mindset? Yeah... I think so, too. I hope this helps...

WATCH: Crappy Benefits

(0) Comments | Posted September 6, 2014 | 11:35 AM

Perhaps you've heard this: Human beings do what works. Every action we take is because we believe it benefits us in some way -- as illogical as that may seem at times. Too often, we are caught in habitual behavior that isn't rewarding us in a way we really want....

Chances are you've heard the expression, "It all depends on how you look at it." This tends to be true with how we feel about something that has happened. I hope this will help you look at some things a little differently...

Well, the World Cup has finally come to a close... and I can start focusing on work again.

While many are rejoicing, many are also licking their wounds -- and maybe taking it really hard. Maybe you've heard the expression, "This is football. It's not life or death... it's...
