2013 Tapping World Summit – Tapping and Affirmations

It’s time for the 2013 Tapping World Summit! As you may know, I follow this event every year.

This year they kick off with a rare video interview of Louise Hay, founder of Hay House Publishing and NY Times best-selling author of “You Can Heal Your Life” which has sold over 50 million books in 25 languages!

If you want to know more, just read on.

An opportunity to change…

Do you ever feel held back by things that have happened in your past?

Or like your life has already “happened” and it’s difficult to change course?

Or frustrated by how slow things seem to change for you?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then I think this new video with EFT Tapping expert Nick Ortner and NY Times best-selling author Louise Hay could make all the difference for you.

Watch the video

You might have heard of Nick Ortner, the producer of the upcoming 5th Annual Tapping World Summit or have heard of EFT or “Tapping”, a breakthrough technique that combines ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology, with startling results.

And there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Louise Hay, founder of Hay House Publishing and NY Times best-selling author of “You Can Heal Your Life” which has sold over 50 million books in 25 languages!

In this rare video interview, Louise sits down with Nick to discuss why she believes Tapping is so life-changing and necessary for you to learn.

During the interview, she’ll share with you the best way you can use affirmations along with Tapping for your “Inner Work”, to create the life you want today!

You’ll even get to tap-along with Louise as she releases the fear from a very personal traumatic event when she was 5 years old, when her step father was holding her head under water.

If you have things from your past that you’d like to let go of, to have the emotional freedom to create the happiness, success, health and self love that you deserve, then you’ll want to watch this video.

At about 14:30, you’ll be guided through a heart-warming meditative Tapping process that is sure to make you feel better in just

tapping in my own life.”

Jack Canfield calls it “..the most powerful new transformational technology to come along in years…”

Tapping Into Abundance Review

Tapping Into Abundance review

As you may know, I love Carol Look’s products and have mentioned her before in articles like the top EFT sites and Making Money Online and EFT. In this article I will give you a review of her new product called Tapping Into Abundance.

What is EFT or Tapping

If you are not familiar with EFT or tapping, you can read my article on how to get started with EFT or get more information and download a free exercise at Project Tapping.

What is Tapping Into Abundance

Tapping Into Abundance gives you a system for eliminating wealth-blocking barriers in just minutes. If you already know how tapping works, you know how fast this can work. But it really helps if you know what to tap on. This product gives you plenty of suggestions.

The program is divided in 5 modules. Each module covers a specific fear you can tap on:

  1. Fear of success (8 tapping exercises)
  2. Fear of failure (10 tapping exercises)
  3. Fear of change (7 tapping exercises)
  4. Fear of losing identity (12 tapping exercises)
  5. Fear of unworthiness (13 exercises)

And there are videos with case studies about people who flew out to San Diego for one day of tapping with Carol Look. There are case studies about:

  • A stuck-in-a-rut business owner
  • A teacher battling self-doubt
  • A creative who feared charging for her services
  • A woman with a fear of money
  • A woman battling her past

Each module has a video with a case study and several audio files with exercises you can tap along with. There is also a transcript of all the audio files if you’d rather read through the material.

My Review

I haven’t completed all the modules yet, but got a lot out of the exercises I have done. The thing is that you are not aware of most of your blocks and your limiting beliefs related to abundance. Carol takes you through each module and exercise so that you can tackle all these possible issues one by one. This way it does not become overwhelming and you feel better step by step. And you can let go of issues you didn’t even know were bothering you so much. Just to be clear, you’re not creating issues you never had before going through this program. What I really noticed was that some memories that came up during the exercises still bothered me. This was a perfect time to let those old issues go. The memories remain, but they don’t have the same negative emotion attached to them.

I really like the tapping exercises. The training basically consists of doing the exercises and that is a great way to learn and to move forward. In each exercise Carol explains something about why the exercise is important and how it could relate to you personally. After that you go through several tapping sequences and you can just follow along. Afterwards she gives suggestions on how you can work more on issues that came up during the exercises, so that you can really eliminate all those wealth-blocking barriers. As I said, I also did the exercises that didn’t mean that much to me. But I perhaps got most out of those exercises, because they made me aware of things that I didn’t know were even bothering me. The great thing about measuring the intensity of a certain fear or issue before tapping and after tapping, is that it immediately shows you how powerful tapping can be and what it can do for your personal development, health and abundance.

If you look at all the modules and exercises (50!) it can feel a bit overwhelming. But if you just start with the first module and the first exercise, you just can’t stop. I’ve mentioned before in other articles on this blog that tapping often gives me more clarity and a feeling like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. That’s why I keep looking forward to doing the next exercise.

Is This For You?

I feel that this program can benefit everyone who wants more abundance in his or her life. And abundance isn’t really only about money of course. If you do these exercises you will find that tapping on many of the fears and issues benefit you in more ways than one. Getting over your fear of failure or change will definitely help you in life.

If you want abundance in your life and if you love personal development as much as I do, you owe it to yourself to take a look at Tapping Into Abundance.

Happy Tapping,


PS: I only recommend products I use myself and know you will love and can use in your own personal development. Tapping Into Abundance gets my highest recommendation!

The Science of Happiness

I have already shared the following video on Facebook a few months ago, but I wanted to include it here again for two reasons:

  1. Shawn Achor shares some terrific tips on happiness.
  2. This is a fun video. Even if you would not like the advice, you could certainly enjoy the way he delivers this speech.

I recognized some of his advice from one of my favorite books: 59 Seconds by Richard Wiseman.

Enjoy and have a great day!


Share Your Story and Inspire People

This afternoon I was reading Tim Ferriss’ latest blog post about Neil Gaiman’s commencement speech. He also included Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address in the post.

What really inspired me was Steve Jobs’ story about death. If you have not heard the speech yet, you can watch the video below.

Like I said, his story about death (the third story in the speech) really resonated with me. About a month ago I had a dream where I walked in a large green field. In the distance I saw a group of people standing close together. When I got closer I noticed that group included my parents and a few of my friends. And as I approached the group, it dawned on me – they were standing around a hole in the ground. My grave.

My first thought was “Hey, I’m dead but it doesn’t really feel any different”. But right after that I felt a sense of disappointment and a bit of anger. “This can’t be it. I always thought that I would accomplish more, share more, make more of a difference in the world.”

In the days and weeks after this dream, this feeling has increased. And this is what has driven me every day to follow my dreams and share my message.

Let me know your story or your thoughts on Steve Jobs’ speech by posting a comment below.


Experts Academy – What Experts Do On Their Home Page To Make Money

A few days ago I told you about Brendon Burchard’s new video for Experts Academy: Building an Empire With Your Advice and Life’s Story. Today I’m happy to share with you a new video about how to use your website as an expert to make money.

A lot of people are trying to earn more revenue online based on their expertise, but have you ever wondered simple questions like what to put on your homepage?

I mean, how do you communicate that you’re an expert, create value for your visitors, and actually make money?

Brendon Burchard has a simple and effective approach called “The Home Page ATM.”

Check it out:

Brendon Burchard's Experts Academy video

This video is awesome. I can’t believe he’s sharing his best online marketing strategies so openly.

I also like how Brendon explains his 1-Page Membership Site – it’s one of the easiest and straightforward strategies I’ve seen to monetize your content online.

These two approaches helped Brendon go from broke to over $4 million in sales in 24 months. Such a great story.

Click here for the video

This all proves that sharing and monetizing your knowledge and advice online doesn’t have to be that complicated. It’s totally worth the optin. Enjoy – and take notes!


Experts Academy – Building an Empire With Your Advice and Life’s Story

If you were starting from scratch, and you wanted to make a million dollars offering your advice and how-to content to the world, what 10 things should you focus on?

In other words, if you wanted to become a highly-paid expert in a matter of months, how would you? How are all these authors, speakers, coaches, seminar leaders, and online info marketers monetizing their life’s story, advice, and experience?

This incredible video from Brendon Burchard has the answers:

Brendon Burchard's Experts Academy

You’ll learn:

  • 10 essentials that will help you build an “expert” brand
  • 3 ways to position yourself as a high-value, highly-paid expert
  • 4 products that add to a million-dollars in 12 months

This all sounds high-strung, but the video nails it.

At some point, every “guru” or expert decides they want to use their life’s story or their how-to advice for helping other people to earn a real income and make a real difference. This video exemplifies that.

Btw, if you haven’t met Brendon Burchard, the guy who did the video, I think you’ll find his story inspiring.

Brendon went from bankruptcy to $4.6 million in the how-to space in just 18 months. He really get results:

  • #1 New York Times Best-selling author with books in 20 languages and over 200k ebooks downloaded
  • Spoken onstage with Tony Robbins, Sir Richard Branson, Dalia Lama, Wayne Dyer, Paula Abdul, Frank Kern, Jeff Walker
  • Seminars pulling 800 people at $2000-$10,000/ticket from 42+ countries
  • 100+ coaching clients paying $10,000-$35,000 a year
  • $4 million-plus online product launches and brilliant continuity programs
  • #1, #2 and #3 ranked affiliate for some of the largest online marketing campaigns in the last 12 months

You might have also seen Brendon recently on Anderson Cooper and ABC News.

What’s WAY more impressive is the results he gets for his STUDENTS.

You can see why in his video. The guy cares, he does it himself, and he really breaks it down for you.

I have talked about Experts Academy and Brendon Burchard before (see Free Brendon Burchard Videos). About a year ago I went through his whole Experts Academy course and absolutely loved it. And in March, 2011 I went to his live seminar, learned a lot more and met lots of great people. I still use a lot of what I’ve picked up from the course and from the seminar. But what really inspired me to purchase the whole course was the quality of the free videos he offers. Just one of the many strategies, tactics and tips he gives in these videos can help you make 2012 your best year yet.

Watch the video here

Enjoy the video.

And take notes. Trust me, it’s worth the optin.


Ps. Brendon says he’s taking questions on the blog, so watch and comment. Here’s what people are saying:

  • Tony Robbins thinks Brendon is “smarter than hell”
  • Brian Tracy says Brendon is the “smartest, nicest, most creative marketers I’ve ever met”
  • Paula Abdul says he’s “captivating, present, magnetic and awesome”
  • NY-Times best-seller Dr. Daniel Amen “wishes I would have met him 20 years ago; it would have put my business and myself as an expert in hyperspeed”

Less Is More – Simplify Your Life

Laura showed me a video this morning that triggered something I was thinking about for a few months now.

The video was a TED-talk by Graham Hill about how less stuff could actually make you happier. You can watch it below.

What are some of the ways that you can simplify your life? How much stuff do you have stored around your house or apartment that you never use?

Getting Rid of Things

Recently I sold a lot of stuff, including my PS3 and Wii and also a lot of my books.  That was partly because I needed the money to invest in my new business. I moved some of the bookcases from the living room to my office. Because of that the living room feels larger and less cluttered. It actually makes it easier to relax. Another thing I noticed was that it’s much easier to pick a book to read if you don’t have literally more than a thousand books to choose from. Does that mean that I don’t have enough books to choose from or that I can’t find a book that I would enjoy to read. Of course not. So do I need all this stuff to make me happy. Again, of course not.

Three years ago I wrote a blog post about making room for more energy. In that post I mentioned that when you sell or throw away stuff, you make room for new things. But those new things don’t necessarily have to mean new physical objects. It could also mean that give yourself more energy, more peace, more freedom.

More Ideas

If you need more ideas about how you can simplify your life, go through some of the articles on Zen Habits. Leo Babauta shares some inspiring ideas in articles like Simple Living Manifesto: 72 Ideas to Simplify Your Life and 13 Small Things to Simplify Your Workday. Or go to Amazon.com for his book The Power of Less. You can of course buy the Kindle edition, if you don’t want to get more physical books into your house.

What do you really need to be happy? Get rid of things you do not need anymore and look for more ways to simplify your life. I’m sure it will make you feel better. You will spend less money and it can even make you some money when you sell things. And it is better for the environment. So less can definitely be more.

Take care,


Inspirational Books For Starting Your Own Business

I have started my own business last November, but only really started working on it since May this year. I know I have not posted many updates since I quit my day job. The last few months have been really busy with starting everything up and getting clients.

When you start out, you quickly find out that not everything goes exactly according to plan. Some things that look easy to implement when you read about it on websites or in books, can be a bit more difficult in real life. When you start your own business, especially when you have quit your day job, you will have to step out of your comfort zone quite a bit. That is not always a fun experience, but I have definitely learned and grown a lot the last few months. I still feel that I have made the right choice and I’m still having a lot of fun doing this. It would of course be a bit more satisfying if I had more paying clients and would not have to worry that much about the upcoming monthly bills.

So what do I do to stay inspired and motivated? Well, one thing is to review my goals – why did I want to start this business and does this still give me energy. That always helps. Another way is to read a chapter from an inspiring book. In this blog post I share some books with you that have helped me in the last few months.

Autobiographies of British Entrepreneurs

The first books I read were all books from successful British entrepreneurs. I bought the books a while ago, but had not read them yet.

The first book I read was Screw It, Let’s Do It by Richard Branson. This is a very quick read and gives some insight into why Branson does what he does. Having fun, challenging yourself, family and giving back or some of the things he talks about with great passion.  I’m also going to read.

The next two books are from entrepreneurs known from the British version of the TV series Dragons’ Den. I had never heard of James Caan or Duncan Bannatyne before coming across their books on Amazon, but they were great finds. The Real Deal by James Caan was the first one I read. Some of the lessons from this book are “always look for opportunities where both parties benefit” and “observe the masses and do the exact opposite”. He is not only a very successful entrepreneur, but also comes across as a real likable guy. My favorite autobiography so far.

In Anyone Can Do It Duncan Bannatyne shows us how he became a successful entrepreneur. Compared to others he started rather late at age 30. This book is really fun and inspiring.

The following books by entrepreneurs are on my “to-read” list:

Working ON Your Business, Not IN It

The following books are absolutely must-reads for everyone who is starting or running a business.

The first one is The E-Myth Revisited by Michael E. Gerber. In this book he explains how a lot of business owners spend more time working IN their business than ON their business. It is about balance between the entrepreneur, manager and technician in yourself.

And last but not least: The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss. This is an absolute must-have, not only for business owners. This book is all about lifestyle design – not living to work, but working to live. He gives a lot of tips on how to increase your productivity so you can work fewer hours to get the same things done. And then he shows you some examples of what you can do with all the free time you got now.

Next one on my “to-read” list is Good to Great by Jim Collins.

Timeless Classics

And here I some books I’ve already read, but am going to read again and again. I have already mentioned these in my list of favorite personal development books, but will list them here again.

Tapping Insiders Club 2.0 – More Free EFT Videos

A few days ago I let you know about Tapping Insiders Club 2.0. The first free video was about attracting more money into your life.

Remove Physical Pain in Just 5 Minutes

Here is one more free video. This one is about removing physical pain.

Do you have any physical pain in your body on a regular basis? If so, how do you think it limits your enjoyment of life and what would it be like if it was gone?

If you experience any kind of pain in your body, whether it be long term chronic pain, pain from a recurring sports injury, or just a pain that popped up yesterday, then you need to watch this video.

The good news about tapping is that it’s easy to do and you can do it yourself and see immediate results.

EFT – A Real Solution for Weight Loss

And the last free video I want to share with you is about weight loss. It addresses the underlying emotional issues that lead to weight gain and is a critical component to understanding how to stay slim and healthy year round.

You can see the video here:

Click here to watch the tapping video of Jessica Ortner on weight loss

There are two main reasons for why EFT is so effective with weight loss:

  1. EFT addresses the emotions that are controlling your eating and exercise habits. Everyone knows that weight loss is about eating better and exercising more, but the struggle is in actually following through and taking the necessary steps. EFT will help you break through the emotional patterns that keep you stuck so that you can take the action you need to take.
  2. EFT addresses the emotional issues that send a cascade of chemicals that cause weight gain. Eliminating these emotions and bringing balance to your body will allow you to get results at lightning speed.

Enjoy the video. Here’s the link again:

Tapping Insiders Club 2.0 – Use EFT to Attract More Money Into Your Life

As I have quit my job and I’m now no longer receiving my monthly income from my former job, the information in this blog post couldn’t have come at a better time.

If you have been following me for a while, you know I’m a big believer/supporter/practitioner of EFT (also known as Tapping). I even wrote about Tapping Insiders Club in 2009 and 2010.

Now Tapping Insiders Club 2.0 is coming out and they are giving out all kinds of free information before the launch. The first of this is about attracting more money into your life.

If there was something you could do right now that didn’t cost you anything that would attract more money into your life, would you do it?

I think most of would like to do that, but how many of us do actually take the action to do something when we’re presented with a solution?

Here’s an extremely simple solution for you today that doesn’t cost you anything and requires very little effort on your part.

Jessica Ortner from The Tapping Solution conducted an interview with EFT expert Carol Look about how to use EFT to easily and quickly attract more money into your life. You might know Carol Look from her excellent book Attracting Abundance with EFT.

This interview is full of information that is easy to understand and implement into your own life.  This is one of those situations where a simple solution that works is being shown to you on how you can attract more money into your life.

Please take a few minutes to watch the free video with Carol and Jessica. I know you’ll get tremendous benefit from it.

You can see it here by clicking on the image below:

TIC - Carol Look

If you choose not to take my advice to watch the video interview I recommend taking a second to ask why that is.

Many of us have blocks, limiting beliefs and sabotage patterns that keep us from making more money. If you’re choosing to not click on the link you may be running one of those patterns.

If you can, overcome it and check it out. It will be worth it, plus Carol talks about some of those limiting beliefs and patterns that we have and how we can overcome them regularly in the video.

I will bring you some more free EFT/Tapping information in the following days. Next week you will here more from me about my journey on how I’ve quit my job and how I’m doing now. But first click the link below to watch the video interview.
