Learning About What You Don't Want
I wanted to share a story, actually an adventure that I took in 2019. Not only did it test everything that I had been learning in the last 20 years, but it took me and my mindset to another level. I am hoping that this speaks to you and helps you shift too.
It was October 2019 and I had plans to go to Greece for Level 3 Training to be a Certified eutaptics® FasterEFT Practitioner. I was pretty excited because I had never traveled overseas and it would be my FIRST time. Not only that, but I was going to learn all the next steps in being a practitioner and when I passed all the tests, I was going to be able to reach my dream of working on people and helping them reach their goals. It was one of the coolest things I ever have done.
I was to fly from Nashville, TN into JFK airport, in New York City. It was my first time being there too. There was a few hour time frame between the time I flew into JFK and the time my plane departed for Greece. I was flying Delta Airlines and I saw a Delta Sky Club just down from the gate and I needed to eat, so I decided to hang out there comfortably until it was time to go to the gate and I set
New York from the plane my alarm. I enjoyed something to drink, eat and spent sometime on my computer. It was time to head to the gate and I stopped at the bathroom and the next thing I knew, I saw notices on my Delta app that my plane was leaving the gate in like 5 minutes. I took off running, stopped and asked a lady on the way out, if she could help me and got a "no, I am sorry, I cannot." I ran! By the time I got to the gate they had already loaded and shut the door. I was flooded with thoughts and feelings, of what was I going to do. How was I going to get to Greece and I started to cry? I decided only after a minute, I had to get it together and go find out, so I walked down to the nearest Delta counter and asked a gentleman to help me. I explained what had happened and he freaked out a bit and was saying it was going to be very expensive to re-book and he didn't know when I was going to be able to get on another plane. As Robert says, I am probably not remembering all of this correctly, but it's the best I can. When the gentleman said that, $$$ signs started flying in my mind and I thought I was going to lose it! As calmly as I could, I told him I needed to step away and calm down and I would come back and figure something out.
Learning About What You Do Want
I sat down and thought of Robert and all of the wonderful people I had met in training and much of what I learned with him and in the last 20 yrs. I immediately knew I needed to get it together, tap it out and get into a better place, so I went into the women's bathroom and starting tapping on myself and defracing. A term that is used to get yourself out of the space or trance you are in. After a few minutes, I was calmed down enough that a thought came to me and I realized what I needed to do and that was to Focus on what I wanted, instead of what had happened (what I didn't want). So I mentally made a list of what that was.
1. I wanted to be on the plane by the next day so I wouldn't be late for the first day of training, Luckily I had scheduled an extra day ahead of time so I could rest after the flight, and be ready for training.
2. I wanted it to be at a rate that I could afford. Yes, it was my mistake, but maybe they could give me a break on all the extra fees that the gentleman had referred to. I was smart enough not to get a quote yet. Tip: Allow your subconscious to have playing room to think about what can be possible without letting reality describe what it is.
3. I wanted him and myself to speak about this in a calm manner and I saw both of us feeling good and it being a good ending to a mishap. (I refer to this as an intention also)
So, after focusing on what I wanted in prayer and tapping it in all the way back over to the counter, I heard my name on the call system and I thought "What did I just imagine all this?" I went up to the gate and asked the lady that was there now, if my name had been called and she didn't know anything about it and she said I needed to go re-book at the other counter. I walked back up to the gentleman at the counter and explained what had happened and asked him to see what he could do to get booked on the next flight to Athens, Greece. He checked in the computer and said they could "waive the fees" and just charge me the difference in the flights. It ended up being about $400 and I said "Yes" with a big smile on my face.
I ended up having to stay the night in a hotel in New York and I didn't mind it. It was my first time there and I accepted it as an adventure. There was a service that helped me find a place nearby and I went to the hotel, settled in for the night, ate dinner and enjoyed my evening. At some point in the night, I had the thought that I wanted the financial part of this mishap to be taken care of and I let it go. It wasn't an expense that I had planned on.
Tip: Think about it, trust and let it go.
I got on the plane that next evening and it all worked out. I got to Greece in time for training. The only other snafu was that my luggage did not make it on the plane that I was on, I had to wait until the next day and they brought it to me at the hotel. Luckily, the hotel had a laundry service and I was able to have the clothes that I had on for about 48 hours laundered while I took a nap since I had basically been up all night.

Guess what? I always wanted friends ALL over the world!
Trusting in The Universe that You Will Be Taken Care of
I know that this is not the easiest thing to do, but it's so freeing when you do. When I moved forward with the flight, I trusted everything would work out and it did. There is a couple funny things that I wanted to point out and then I will share the surprise gift.
I had always been afraid I would miss my plane. I had only learned about FEFT this year and it was something that was a big part of me, I was Used to thinking about that and I didn't realize it. It was in my subconscious.
I had always been afraid of losing my luggage and it not showing up with the plane. Now, I have it all out of the way, Lol.
We are all co-creators of our experience. Some things, we really don't have a lot of control over, but there is so much that we do. If we tap out our fears, sadnesses etc, we will have a better experience and if there is a snafu, we have a wonderful tool to shift our mindset and get back into a good place and focus on what we would want or just be grateful for the blessings.
The 1st Surprise
The amazing thing is before I left for Greece, I had not had time to open up my mail, so I through it in my computer case for when I had some downtime on the plane or in my room. After a couple days when I was in my room, I decided to sit down and open up my mail and to my surprise I opened 2 different envelopes that had checks made out to me for some type of refund. The 2 checks totaled just over $600, the amount that I had to spend on the hotel and re-booking the flight. God/the Universe is there to answer the desires in our heart, we just need to get in a better space and ask for "What We Want" and let it go! We all have a better experience instead of focusing on what "We Don't Want." This is another gift of eutaptics ® FasterEFT, because you are letting all that stuff go from within, you are allowing yourself to be more "in tune" and receive more of what you do want in life. It's a true gift and I am so grateful for it.
The 2nd Surprise
Some of you may or may not know, but one of the reasons why I got involved with eutaptics ® FasterEFT is because I went to a Grief workshop and Robert G. Smith, the creator of FasterEFT. He worked on me in his "Hot Seat" as they call it, around the experience of finding my son transitioned. This memory haunted me for years and there was nothing anyone seemed to be able to do about it. He worked on that memory and within 45 minutes shifted it to where I could see it in a better way. I had to work on it a couple other times as it was a really loaded memory, with different parts, but it doesn't bother me anymore. Now that is "Healing Magic." I do still miss him and have some grief around it, but this traumatic memory doesn't bother me. Well, when I was on the plane and descending into Athens, I thought to myself that it would be wonderful if I had someone close to me to share this experience with and I thought, well next year. Then as the plane landed, I looked out the window and there in plane sight was this airplane with his name on the side of it RyanAir. My son's name is Ryan and he was there with me, making sure his mamma was getting healed and experiencing this with me!
