Do you feel resistance to change?

If you have used EFT / Tapping for any length of time you will probably know that some thoughts feelings and behaviours can be difficult to shift.

This can be confusing, if you really want to change, the resistance to it doesn’t make any sense.

One way of understanding this is to give up the idea that you are a single, unitary, individual (which is what your conscious mind would have you believe) and think of yourself as a system of many parts, most of which are at work below the level of consciousness.

It’s as if the conscious self is the captain of a ship, choosing a course and giving commands, and all the other parts are the ship’s crew: sailors, engineers, deckhands who actually do the work.

If the captain and the crew are in alignment about what to do and where to go then the ship works well. If there is conflict between the captain and the crew then problems may arise.

EFT Café – September 11th – How To Achieve Your Not-So SMART Goals With EFT

Not So Smart Goals

Many people are familiar with the idea of Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timed (SMART) goals: pass the exam in July, paint the house next week, run the marathon in less than three hours, lose 15lb in two months, and so on.

Some goals don’t easily fit into the SMART framework: practice meditation, take up regular exercise, finish what you start, learn the piano, be more assertive and so on.

These kinds of goals may involve processes, habits or states of mind that run and develop over time.

The first EFT Café of the new season kicks off with a process I’ve been working on to help you achieve the not-so-SMART goal you want to achieve, but don’t.

If you think you should meditate but haven’t, or take exercise and don’t, finish what you start and don’t, and so on, this could be just for you.
