====== Miracles Tapping Script =======

I want MIRACLES in 2011
…and that includes money!

Karate Chop Point:
Even though the truth is that one of the big miracles
I want this year is money, and I’m not sure how I feel
about that, I’m not sure how God/The Divine would feel
about that, I’m open to releasing all my negative
judgments about money.

I’m open to allowing money to be a miraculous swirling,
nurturing, flow in my life. Money has been flowing
through my life in a trickle.
I’m now allowing it to be a river.

Even though ‘miracles’ is a really big word, I’m
open to being a miracle in my own life.
I’m open to being the miracle in other people’s lives.

Even though ‘miracles’ really seems like a stretch,
I’m open to widening my view and suddenly seeing
miracles unfolding all around me, in every smile,
in every sunset, and every person.

Even though it’s hard to believe in miracles,
I’m open to seeing the miraculous things that have
already happened in my life,how far I’ve come,
how much I’ve manifested.

Tap Through the Points Your Favorite Way:

One of the miracles I want this year is money,
And I have a lot of judgments about that,
And I worry God/Divine has those same judgments.
that is is wrong to ask for miracles in my money
I’m ready to let go of that pretty bold assumption,
That I know the mind of God/the Divine
and I’m now open to allowing money,
YES, even MONEY
to be a miraculous flow in my life,
Flowing and swirling and nurturing me,
Flowing in and out of my life.
Through money I’m connected to millions of people.
I’m connected through giving and receiving.
I connected through exchange of buying and selling
I’m connected through our time and energy value!
Money connects millions of people across the world.
all trading in their energy
using the currency of money!
I’m open to letting that swirling energy
Flow into my life like a river.
And I’m open to being a walking, talking miracle myself.
I’m open to being the miracle in my own life.
I’m open to being the miracle in the lives of others.
A miracle of self-acceptance,
A miracle of self-love,
A miracle of abundance,
Letting everyone around me feel that miracle too.
I’m open to all miracles showing up.
Little miracles,
Big miracles,
Miraculous, divine, inspired miracles.
and even everyday miracles.
I am now open to widening my view
And seeing miracles unfolding everywhere.
The miracle of every blade of grass,
Of every hug offered, given and received
And in that moment
I commit
That I will now pause
And allow that miracle
To wash over me,
Electrify me,
Inspire me,
Mind body and soul.
It’s almost 2011 and I am totally wired for miracles.

(wow, that felt good!)

Get the details about Margaret’s new course,
“Tapping For Miracles In 2011”

Margaret spent the last couple of months soul searching
and researching the subject of miracles and
discovered some very interesting things.

Most importantly is this: Your ability to ask
for, receive, allow and even SEE miracles will
take you light years beyond where you can go with
your will power and hard work alone.

But this ability is limited by our programming!

In this special class you will find and clear your
programming around infinite possibility, connection
to the Divine, and your worthiness for miracles
AT EACH CHAKRA! 7 classes clearing all 7 chakras.

PLUS: given the serious and spiritual nature of
subject, Margaret has a very special guest star joining
her in each class! The special guest will perform a
special energy “blessing” for each chakra to end each
class with a a powerful clearing and spiritual boost!

Listen to what Margaret has discovered about
miracles and why this is so important here.

Getting Yourself Motivated, Aligned and Energized In The Morning

How often have you found that you either, can’t seem to get going in the morning or that the stuff of daily life just seems to suck you in real fast? So, right from the early hours of the day you are already dragging and are mentally off base.

This of course is not a preferable state of mind to be in, you are not really in command of your thinking, in touch with yourself or very focused on what you would like. This kind of mindset will have you easily repeating an unintended cycle day in and day out. The only way to progress in life is to become present with your awareness and be in command of your thinking.

So, how can you change this habit of falling into this same cycle every day? One way is by centering yourself in the morning. There are various ways this can be done, one is by positive self statements. This could be called affirmations, but that would not fully describe this method of centering and energizing yourself. The point is to boost your self-confidence and set the right attitude so you can be more focused and powerful as you go about your day.

In the morning after you first get up and you have done any other self centering exercises such as meditation or visualization, stand in front of a mirror – look yourself in the eye.

Ask yourself, “Who an I?”

Then make some powerful affirmative statements about yourself.

Like:
I am powerful!
I am talented!
I am loving!
I am efficient, I get things done!
I am the best at . . . !

These statements can be anything positive you want to say about yourself.
More will come to you as you begin to do this.

Say these statements to yourself verbally with energy and conviction!

Get loud if you want, this will enhance the energy build up.

The idea is to get yourself to believe these things about yourself, and to feel the energy of them.

You will find yourself not only waking up to the day easier, but more energized and positive about yourself going into the day.

Here is a wonderful example I came across to show you how it can be done.

Notice the energy!
. . . you don’t need to get up on the vanity!

Life Can Be Exciting

There is nothing more exciting than being in a life that is going and blowing! I think that term, ‘going and blowing’ is an old railroad analogy, it describes a locomotive that is racing down the tracks full speed with a steady stream of smoke blowing out of the stack. We can use this to relate to living a life of constant self-discovery, personal growth and development.

Now I’m not implying that you should be pushing yourself all the time. There is a big difference between moving forward consistently and confidently, and in being in a hurry, rushing around. Rushing is when you are late for work or are trying to cram too many things into a short time frame, this is not freedom! This kind of behavior comes from a lack mentality, usually including the feeling of not enough time, among others.

When you are in a mode of consistent self-discovery and growth you get very excited with what is going on. You see new possibilities for yourself on a regular basis, which lead to more and more. You feel more and more freedom, the feeling of really being alive and unrestricted.

Even discovering what in your thinking has been responsible for an undesirable condition or behavior is exciting as this opens up your understanding and what you can do about it. You will see first hand how life works, what your role is and how you can best participate. You find out more of what you are capable of, which opens even more possibilities.

Your confidence rises substantially as you take command of your thinking, as well as responsibility for it. Your vision expands greatly as your faith in both your abilities and the possibilities available to you grows. Your ability to just accept your current situation along with taking responsibility for it becomes easier and easier. You see how change is more about choices and faith than about current conditions or past experiences.

You become more open to the new and different, and less attached to your existing beliefs and perceptions. You become comfortable with change as that is really life, always evolving. You stop trying to create a perfect, set, predictable life situation for yourself, as that is just fighting the natural flow of life.

You learn to know the difference between guided and inspired thought and the ego based protection thoughts. You take purposeful action based on the correct thoughts knowing that this is what you ought to do in order to have the experience meet with the idea, your role in the law of attraction.

Human history has shown that all this does not happen very often accidentally, although it does. But if you make it your intention to live your life in constant growth, you will. It is really an every day activity that you will have to develop into. Your days are already full, right. You will want to gradually make room for YOU time to do something related to your self-discovery and growth, and you will see that it will expand into everything that you do.

One thing that can help is to get a picture and even the feeling of what you want, because you will actually want to think, feel and act like the person doing and having what you want, in this case a lifestyle of consistent growth and development. Back to the train analogy, we can elaborate on this picture of the train going down the tracks and how it can relate to our life. It can be useful to have mental pictures that you can relate to as a way to further engage your thinking and enhance your feelings.

  • It’s steadily moving forward.
  • The scenery is always changing.
  • It’s moving confidently, it knows where it’s going.
  • It’s being guided on it’s way.
  • Moving is what it was created for.
  • It’s getting something done.
  • It’s involved with people, things and places.
  • It has purpose, taking purposeful action.

And maybe there are more aspects we can relate to, what do you think of when visualizing a fast moving train?

You will find that in choosing constant growth rather than trying to create a ‘perfect’ life, life is much more comfortable and satisfying. You will be less likely to be rushing around and more likely to be calm mentally and physically, getting more done – of what you want and enjoy.

Be A Magnet For What You Want

Another article in the ‘Daily Action For Self Improvement’ series, articles focusing on the personal development and growth actions you can take daily to support a high level of happiness and satisfaction in your life. In looking what you can do each day to support what you want in your life - check your thinking throughout the day. Ask a simple question of yourself, “Am I a magnet for what I want?” You see, your predominate thoughts direct your magnet. Unfortunately, spending a lot of time thinking about what we don’t want seems to be the norm. But doing this just defines your creation magnet - so you are essentially requesting more of what you don’t want. You do this when you re-play in your head; What you don’t like, What you are upset about, What you worry about, What you are afraid of And, this is so easy to do, it is automatic. But it doesn’t have to be. You can stop and shift ‘thought gears’ whenever you want. The first option is to switch your focus onto something, anything that you can feel good about. Get yourself to delve into this topic for a while to divert your attention. It is easier to replace thought with another thought than it is to try to get yourself to just stop the current thinking. Replace your thought with something desirable. A second option when you catch yourself stuck in ‘the negative thought spiral’ is to look for the opposite of what you are thinking. Usually at the opposite of a dislike is something you would want. Identify this and place your focus on it, allowing yourself to feel better. Wherever your mind is - you are seeking more, even if it is what you don’t want. So, train yourself to not remain in that state of whirling around in what you don’t want - use that to look for the opposite, what you do like. Or even just switch to thinking about anything to get your mind into a happier place. To get yourself to begin to notice more often what you are thinking about try this: Get a 3 x 5 card to take with you for the day. Write on it - “What am I thinking about right now?” “Does it make me happy?” “What else can I be thinking?” Keep this where you will see it often. It’s good to put it somewhere where you will accidentally notice it without thinking about it. This helps you catch yourself off guard so you can take notice of your thoughts. Using a tool like this can help you to learn to take more notice to what you are thinking all the time. When you are aware of your thoughts, you can decide if you want to change them.

Are Your Self Questions Leading To Stress And Anxiety Or Happiness?

What is your mind doing all day long when you are doing what you do?

It is very common to find yourself asking yourself questions, which is a very powerful personal growth tool that you should be using.

If that is, if you want to discover ways to improve your life and reduce your stress and anxiety.

But, many times the questions that you are asking yourself are more of the negative vein.

Like-

Why does this always happen to me?

What is wrong with me?

Why don’t they like me?

Why is it always so hard for me?

Why can’t I always screw up?

Why do they do this to me?

Now, can see that these seem innocent enough, but they are actually very damaging if you persist with this line of questioning.

It is actually a form of complaining.

When you continuously repeat those kinds of questions you are just reinforcing what you don’t want.

These are actually negative affirmations that you are hammering in to your mind.

There is a way to reverse this negative thought bombardment on your mind.

You need to become aware of your mind chatter and what you say to yourself all day long.

This way you will catch these innocent questions early before repeating them for a time.

Now these are natural questions that come up when you are in certain situations, this is natural.

But the trick is to quickly flop them around to an opposite positive statement of something you do want.

Then when you say this positive statement or question you are actually seeking a solution based response from your inner self and the universe.

Such as-

What can I do to help them to like me?

What is the best way to do this?

What can I do to do this well?

What outcome do I want with this?

How can I get the outcome I want?

What can I do right now to change the way I think about this?

Of course you can get more specific to the situation at hand.

Flipping a negative question is easy, just rewrite it based on what you want.

With any thing you don’t want, like, have, feel or do – you can then look to its opposite – what you do want.

That is what you should be keeping your mind on.

Your subconscious and the universe responds to your thoughts.

Take command of your thoughts and guide your life experience to how you want it.
