Many people believe that the harnessing the power of thought, specifically positive thinking, is the key to a successful life (whatever ‘success’ may mean). But really, what makes a thought positive… or for that matter, negative? A thought is simply a thought; it just…IS, isn’t it?
The “good” or “bad” label is an opinion. The “positive” or “negative” is merely the energy behind the thought, the emotion that powers it.
Hold a thought. A good one is “I am beautiful”.
What happens in that instant? Do you react with an expansive smile or an inward flinch? That instinctive, reflexive response is the true energy behind the thought. Remember The Secret? Your life is a reflection of the energy you send out…not the words…the emotion behind them. If you’re flinching…it’s a restrictive, tightness that doesn’t allow abundance to flow.
Emotional responses are signposts telling us if we’re headed in the right or wrong direction. Happiness feels good, keeps us wanting more – energy is flowing and moving us along our path.
Anger, sadness, depression, frustration stop us in our tracks. Energy is blocked – we’re resisting life and our experiences – we can’t move on. And guess what? It’s not BAD – it’s an opportunity to heal.
Our body and emotions tell us when we have a problem and it’s up to us to recognize it, accept it and then, let it go.
Like yoga, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or ‘tapping’ is a powerful, simple and effective way of moving blocked emotion, releasing energy and moving on with life. Based on the ancient Chinese wisdom of energy meridians, EFT is an acupressure technique of gently tapping on specific areas on the face and torso to prompt relaxation. With relaxation, comes release. With release, comes healing.
There are very few things we can truly control in life – the most important one may be how we react to it. Start to take control of your reactions and emotional responses with Tapping. It’s as easy as tap, tap, tap.

When we look at the mind, body, and soul connection, what we are really seeking to understand is the intangible energy of the inner world that speaks from our inner self as the language of the soul.
Karma is an ongoing process and involves not only the past but also present, and the future. Your thoughts in your past lives have an effect on your present life, and your present actions have an effect on your future life. Your current actions can also have an impact in your present life.
