Although, I enjoy sharing the amazing self improvement skills I've learned over the years, I have learned about MYSELF, that I love reading nutritional stuff. And then trying it out and seeing how it goes. I've loved being in control of my own health, and finding ways naturally (mostly and usually without medical help) to apply knowledge and sit back and watch the miracle of the body take over. I once heard a speaker give an amazing talk about "The Magnificence of Man." And I agree. Our bodies, being built with the capacity to heal, are simply amazing when we give it the proper fuel.
The last few years, I gained some unexplainable weight. Over 3 months, I gained nearly 30 lbs, and over more time, it increased to 40. It has been distressing at times, as I have done everything known to woman, except starve myself to try to shed the pounds. All medical tests reveal me as the ever present Mrs Normal. Well that's a relief on one level. On another, not so much. And even though I've tried low carb, healthy versions of Atkins, paleo type, increasing fruits and veggies, exercising until I am red in the face, nothing has worked, except one small jaunt on HCG, that I lost 15 pounds and it came right back. No, I don't stash oreos and ho hos in my cupboards. I'm normal, but I am more healthy than normal.
It has always been concerning to me the popularity of one "healthy" concept over another. Low carb, high carb, saturated fats, vegan, paleo, mediterranean, and on and on. It's exhausting trying to wade though information and figure out who is telling you the truth. But there has been a little voice inside me whispering for years, "stop eating wheat." Wheat? Stop eating wheat? Are you serious? The staff of life? Healthy whole grains? Are you crazy? Do you know how many products contain wheat? I found out today RICE-a-Roni and Whoppers both contain wheat! What? And I gag the little voice and stuff it in a closet.
But I've known for some time, it was telling me the truth and dang if it doesn't keep popping out of the closet at the oddest times. Combine that with my newfound knowledge about Functional Medicine and Functional Nutrition. (For another post) And my Dr's insistence that the wheat we eat today is not the wheat our grandparents ate. He calls it Frankenwheat. And then I saw the Wheat Belly book. Ok, it's meant to be. I ordered it up through my library. If you haven't tried inter libraray loan, you simply are missing out.
I'll finish it tonight. But what stopped me in my tracks and left my chin hanging tonight is data. Pure, simple date by someone with no agenda. Years ago I read a book called the China Study. To keep this short, you can go find out about it. A 20 year study in China of different nutritional populations and the conclusions from that unique study. Turns out, even the China Study left out some crucial data, and someone took the time to dive into that data and see what it really said. One major thing left out of Dr Campbells conclusions, in his own book, is the unhealthy relationship with wheat. I am telling you this PAINS me. My cravings are breads, crackers, chips, etc. Mostly of the wheat variety. And there is a reason for those cravings but you'll have to read Wheat Belly.
Anyway, because of the data this young woman extracted about wheat from the China Study, I have all the reason I need to continue with my recent foray into a wheat free experiment. (I am sure my family will be regretting it eventually). So, I went to Denise Migner's website and found she has written a book. I'll confess I have a sick and twisted fascination with smashing paradigms (thus my love of all things EFT), and this gal seems to feel the same way. I've only read the first post, but I know what my next book will be. Death by Food Pyramid. Check it out at Death By Food Pyramid.
The positive correlation between wheat and adverse health conditions is pretty undeniable based on her data analysis. If you have chronic health conditions, and you have no other place to go, you can skip the somewhat technical information in Wheat Belly, and simply drop all wheat from your diet for 4 weeks and see what it does. Pretty incredible case studies. And as a trivia question, the glycemic index for 30 grams of wheat bread is 71. 30 grams of M&Ms? 33. That means that 30 grams of wheat bread will raise your blood sugar more than twice that of the same weight of M&Ms. It just seems like there is something wrong with that. Want to experiment with me? Drop the wheat. 4 weeks. Let's see what happens.
Well, here it is a New Year. And I have tons of things to share. I've been wanting to begin posting again for some time, and this video actually inpired me to finally do it. Because I have experience with this. I've been to Kirk's classes. And applied some of what he teaches, but I believe this one thing is the most powerful thing he shares. And it works.
I had a poster with my vision on it hanging in my office. Every time I went in, I took it out and looked at it. Not only did I sell all four of the houses on the poster, but I had my biggest year ever and sold 4 more. That might not seem like much to your average realtor, but in a county that only sells 12 houses a year, it's HUGE. Did I reach the exact goal? No, I fell 13% short of this specific $ goal. Do you think I'm crying over that? No way!
I used this technique to go from a $10,000 YEAR to a $10,000 MONTH (which was only part of the goal that year). And I have been able to repeat it. We've used it to purchase vehicles with the features we want, including price. Last year, I used it to sell several properties that I represented as a realtor. (See above picture) My son used it as a missionary to help him to be successful in his goals as a missionary. And as I write, I just realized that since we moved twice in a year, I haven't had one up for awhile. And I will remedy that VERY SOON. This works. And I invite you to try it. Kirk explains it best, so I am going to let him. And while I want people to follow what I teach, and become interested in the programs I am building, this is too important not to give you the link to the video. Please, if you want to accomplish things you never thought possible, this is worth watching. Click on the picture.
Edit: I already know the first question that will be asked. How long does it take? The short answer is, that depends entirely on you. The more negative mindset you have, the longer it will likely take. But even with a positive mindset (that I have been developing for over 6 years now) it can take time. I had a small square of paper that said, "I have my first $10,000 month in real estate." I looked at it every day twice a day as Kirk suggests. And after 2 months I sure didn't see it happening. In fact, the evidence seemed to indicate I was on track for the worst year of my real estate career! How was that possible, because I BELIEVED! I was very tempted to take the darn thing down, but Kirk also says never take it down until it is complete. I guess the exception might be if you find out that it is not the thing you want. So, I thought to myself, if this takes me 6 months/a year to accomplish, will it be worth it? No answer but YES!
So, I kept going. At five months I actually decided I was leaving real estate, but kept looking at it every day. I set a date to quit. And 2 weeks before that date, SEVERAL transactions came "out of the blue." In real estate, you work for months sometimes on a property, before you see one penny. I could see that it would take time, and decided to stay in until the end of the year. In 3 months, as each of my transaction closed, and I added up my totals, I found to my delight that I had reached my goal of a $10,000 month. It took 8 months to complete. And I'm glad I stuck with it. The next year, my business increased 4 fold. And as I said before, I'll be putting a vision board up again soon. I hope you'll join me in your own experiment.
PS. You cannot get lost in vision. If you do not take action the vision does not come into creation. Take inspired action to see your vision come to life.
Yes, I am an EFT Practitioner. And I have been for the last 6+ years. At first just working with my family and friends and gradually expanding out to people who had been referred to me and paying clients. My only wish is that I had more of them more of the time. I love seeing the happy disbelief in others who experience success with me. The results have been so astounding as to change my entire medical paradigm. And I was extremely conservative BEFORE EFT. (Emotional Freedom Technique). You would think, and it is usually the case, that EFT would be my first choice of treatment most of the time. And you'd be right. But every now and then, for whatever reason, it doesn't even occur to me until it occurs to me.
So, a few days ago, on our way to a movie, I realized my shoulder was hurting a bit. Hmmm. I hadn't done anything to strain it. I tjust didn't feel quite right. After the movie, on the way home, it was really bothering me. A 6 or 7 on a scale of 1-10. And it hurt. It felt like deep in the joint. That night we had a tremendous wind and rain storm. And between the rain and shoulder pain, I didn't sleep much. I realized that the pain likely came from overextension of my shoulder in the natural position I like to sleep.
On the next day, it continued. And I thought, hey! I need to get out my essential oils. So a few times, I rubbed Deep Blue on it and it felt a little better. Maybe down to a 4 or 5. It wasn't until the 3rd day, I did the V-8 forehead smack and realized I hadn't done any tapping. So, I spent about 3 minutes and was proud of myself that the pain was mostly gone. Until later, walking with my husband, and I told him "Look at my shoulder!" Intending to show him it was all better, as I raised my arm, ouch, there it was again! Dang! So, this time, I spent a FULL FIVE MINUTES, and got the pain down to a zero. Where it has stayed since. I can't think of any physical therapy that will do that in five minutes. (Results often typical but not always).
It's difficult to be successful when you have aches, pains, and other symptoms that prevent you physically from your goal. EFT allows you to improve and remove the physical challenges that hold you back. Try it today. Make an appointment. Money back guarantee.
It's called Emotional Freedom Technique. In 25 years of the study of natural health and healing, I've never seen anything like it. It sounds to good to be true. But it's not. It has changed the way I think about the body and it's possibilities, the potential for healing, and what is known vs what is possible. I have a tendency to disbelieve most of what doctors say, because I've seen things happen and resolve in ways that medicine doesn't seem to be able to explain. And I can't explain it either. Unless I go with the founder's (Gary Craig) explanation that the cause of all negative emotion (linked to physical as well) is a disruption in the body's energy system. Remove the disruption, remove the negative symptom.
If you are familiar with acupuncture, it won't seem strange. But it does seem a little strange if all you are used to is a typical doctor's appointment. Gentle tapping of certain pressure points that correspon to Chinese meridians, while saying affirming phrases and focusing on the current problem or symptom, usually for only a few minutes. Sometimes less than five. Sometimes up to an hour. With severe things, perhaps several hour long sessions.
I see so much potential with EFT to improve nearly every other modality. Weight loss? How easy would it be if you could crush cravings? Athletic training? How about easily blasting through limiting beliefs, fears, and increased healing times for minor injuries, increased range of motion, and much more? Pain and discomfort? Headaches, stomachaches, joint pain, back pain, surgery pain, any kind of pain you can imagine? Improve drastically or relieve completely. Mental blocks, emotional conflict….I could keep going. But you just cannot imagine unless you try it. There are three ways you can do that.
Choose the most difficult thing in your life, past or present. Let me teach you and walk you through an hour session. For $50 you will find the greatest improvement you've ever experienced, or your money back. I do appointments by phone, skype, google chat, I've even had success PMing on facebook. Email me at dawn @ dailyabundance dot net. Type as you normally would. Spammers overwhelm me when I just type it out. You can also call me at nine two eight, two nine two, zero zero one six.
If you just want some introduction in the quiet of your own home. To learn how I teach it and some of my successes, as well as instruction for you to try. Then just go here: My FREE Page. It will come in several email lessons over 2 weeks so you don't have to take it all in one sitting.
Finally, you can go to the original source. If you want 1000 hours of free tapping videos by the originator. Gary Craig has put together a rich collection of resources on every condition and topic and challenge imaginable. For $150 you get endless situations to tap along with and borrow benefits. Borrowing benefits simply means that as you tap along with others, your issues subside and disappear. It's an amazing side benefit.
So, 1, 2, or 3. Give EFT a try. I guarantee you will not be sorry.
Here are just a few testimonials others have shared with me. What others say about me.
