One of the reasons that I haven’t posted to the EFTzone for a while is that we recently moved to a new home we had built. Aside from the normal hassles of moving, the 12 month experience was very positive until the last month. We moved in right before Christmas and a lot of things simply weren’t done. Toilets were leaking. Light switches didn’t work. Things weren’t painted. The professional plumbers, electricians, carpenters and others didn’t do a lot of things right. Could EFT help me out here?At the crest of the moment, I just felt like these people were really inept. They didn’t think things through. They didn’t read directions. They made assumptions. They damaged things. They promised and then didn’t deliver. They didn’t show up when they said they would. Don’t they know that Woody Allen said that 80 percent of success is just showing up? They didn’t do many of the things that professional people “should” do.
Of course, I felt like I was the only one who knew how to do things right. At the time, I really didn’t feel like doing any EFT about the issue. Why tap? I preferred to feel ticked off. I was going to keep my feelings of being righteous for a while longer. Finally, I realized that as long as I held on to my thoughts about these people not doing things right, that’s the experiences I would keep getting. I was focusing on what wasn’t right and believe me there was plenty. What we think and believe gets confirmed in our reality. It certainly was in mine. Sure, there were problems. It’s just that I could choose not to laser-lock on them. I decided to change my focus and pay attention to my thoughts and feelings about the things that were right and enjoyable in the house. I was ready to do some EFT. Here’s what I tapped on.
Even though these people don’t know how to do things right, I deeply and completely accept myself.
Even though the professionals didn’t meet my expectations, I realize that I’m the only one who can meet my expectations and I accept myself.
Even though these people didn’t do things right, I choose to have a sense of humor about it and know that everything will be fine in the end.
Even though things aren’t perfect, I love my new house and I deeply and completely accept that all is well.
Even though the house isn’t quite ready, I appreciate my new house and I am grateful for all that I have.
That’s the beauty of EFT. You can use it for everything — even feelings encountered when building a new house. By the way, I’m smiling as I look at the great view of the pond behind my house. Awesome!
