Some people are going to find this article paradoxical, because in other recent articles I’ve written about raising my standards and not compromising (see here about No More Unpaid Speaking Engagements and here), and that may sound like PRESSURE.
Still, I assure you that Holistic Belief Reprogramming is about the opposite of pressure. It’s about returning to our natural rhythms and being. Returning to our natural joy of life.
Much of what we do in Holistic Belief Reprogramming is REMOVE the cultural conditioning that has so many people run, run, running on dozens of hamster wheels. When Chasing Pussy Loses Its Power Over You, chasing promotions, chasing money, chasing happiness, chasing the perfect body, and so on …
This week, I’ve actually been feeling a lot of pressure as I try to wrap up projects, keep a lot of appointments, and get everything ready for a retreat on the California Coast next week with my long-term mentoring client.
And wow, did I not like that feeling of pressure! Holistic Belief Reprogramming is all about shifting from the “have to” obligation model of the world to the “want to” passion and inspiration model of the world. Most of the major lifestyle shifts I’ve made over the past few years are all about eliminating pressure from my life, and replacing it with true freedom of choice.
I began to do EFT tapping on the feelings of pressure, and what a rewarding exercise that turned out to be. Suddenly I was thrown back to my childhood and reminded how EVERYTHING WAS ALWAYS ABOUT PRESSURE, all the time. Pressure to go to school, pressure to go to church, pressure to clean the house, pressure to wake up early in the morning. And how much I freakin’ HATED that pressure. Every time my body needed sleep and I overrode it with the expectations of parents and authority figures, I had more resentment and anger and less feeling of well-being. Yet I didn’t think I had a choice.
This EFT tapping got me in touch with some very deep inner conflicts. Part of me said, “okay I don’t want any pressure in my life at all, and I don’t want to put any pressure on anyone else, either.” And another part of me said, “well, that’s never going to work. When people break their word or procrastinate, they need pressure to do the right thing.”
This raised all kinds of intriguing questions, such as:
* How do we create romantic relationships that don’t have pressure and also have trust of people keeping their word and having integrity?
* How do we have financial abundance without feeling constant pressure to make more money?
* How do we cultivate commitment in those who really need transformation without repeating the pressure tactics of their childhood?
And so the inner dialogues went, on and on. I had some MAJOR epiphanies about where to go next in my clearing with Holistic Belief Reprogramming. Most likely, I will record some more videos very soon for Join our Advanced EFT Tapping Gold membership. And I’ll give you a hint about how these inner conflicts get resolved.
It all comes back to: Let Go and Let God.
