The Sunflower Secret for Peak Performance

I recently took a road trip to my homeland of eastern North Dakota / western Minnesota. Miles and miles of lush corn and soybeans - a "bumper crop" as farmers say. And then, BAM! - a huge, vibrant field of bright yellow sunflowers - heads turned toward the sun, showing off their fullness of pure Joy, it felt to me.  

The blooming sunflower heads turn toward the sun throughout the day; something that has always intrigued me about sunflowers.


In creating peak performance, it's really the same process as the sunflowers. We turn our inner (hidden) and outer (known) thoughts and feelings naturally and easily toward a positive power source that's ever-present within us. The EFT process literally shifts the body and mind into a more efficient, higher vibratory system. Behavior and mood shifts, things go well, and Joy is often what people report - with themselves and with their performance.


We can easily learn the secret of the sunflowers. EFT allows the shift from a stuck, cloudy pattern to one of joyful, positive flow. It's a full-sun deal!


Give it a try!  You might just produce your own "Bumper Crop" this year!


Eliminating the Weeds - Increasing Yield


Whether you are an athlete, musician, dancer, public speaker, sales person . . . you will often experience the dark clouds of negative thoughts:  thoughts that bring lack of confidence, fear, anxiety, low motivation, just plain being stuck.


EFT is a natural (no artificial or toxic chemicals!) way to eliminate these nasty weeds that choke out nutrients and reduce your yield - it's a natural fertilizer to enrich each cell of your body with just the right organic chemicals (literally!) (learn more at "Why EFT Works: The Physiology of Success") so you will perform at your optimal yield. It's a bumper crop with EFT! I'm still amazed at the results after all these years.


Examples of "weedy" thoughts shifting to sun-drenched thought:

(for athletes --- or anyone, really)


Athletes (like musicians, speakers, sales professionals, etc.) often come to me feeling in a stuck place with their performance levels.One common theme is a past "failure" - the botched tennis match, the important speech or vocal audition that went south... 

The common blocking belief is, "I failed, I'll fail again."  Often this thought is outside their awareness. Sometimes clients have held onto this belief for decades based on some failure in grade school. It can be cleared with EFT so they can get on with letting their best gifts shine.


Negative unconscious thought - "I can never get over that last loss so I am a complete failure."

                        EFT changes this to:

Positive conscious thought - "I can recover from past losses and be successful in future competitions."


Tapping Protocol: Getting Past Failure

EFT combines the hard science of cellular biology, the ancient practice of acupuncture points/meridian tapping, and the artful use of acceptance and compassion.

This example is based on a tennis player - you can easily substitute your own words of "failure" that fit your situation. We focus first on the negative to clean it out, then later we'll anchor positivity into the cells for a superior next performance!


EFT Tapping Points DiagramIf you're unfamiliar with the EFT tapping points, you can see a diagram to the right. Tap firmly, but not so firmly that it's uncomfortable. As you're tapping, focus on the issue at hand. After a round of tapping, take a deep breath and "let it go"...

This protocol is a great guide for your practice and to get results. You'll find the full protocol at Bernadette's blog. Tap along with the script and see what happens!

If you're new to EFT, or even if you've done it before, it can often be helpful to have a session with a seasoned practitioner to move things along. Give me a call with any questions.  303-300-6733.

Enjoy the gift of EFT. You deserve the Joy of a Powerful Performance!

It's All in Your Mind? 

If I had thought about it, I wouldn't have done the experiment. The literature was full of examples that said you can't do this.

I have had compulsive eating issues for my entire adult life ( 51 yrs.old). I took the class 4 months ago, and since that time I have eaten compulsively only one time, and I made that choice. One message which stuck with me was "give all foods equal value". That message combined with the EFT technique has stuck for me. My relationship with food is better than it has ever been in my life.
