This is one version of engaging the hidden resources in our higher selves / inner wisdom / subconscious mind. This sequence is one way of integrating NLP New Code Breakthrough Pattern technique with Sandi Radomski’s Ask and Receive (www.askandreceive.org). We may use this with or without tapping. We may use muscle testing, dowsing or our emotional intensity about a state or statement.
This works with values and beliefs we need to change (…no longer need to believe…), strategies and capabilities we need create (…how to…), behaviors we need to change(… no longer need to or how to….). Depending on how you use it, you can also work on the identity (… I am…) and spiritual (…. higher purpose…) levels. Multiple iterations will take care of ecological issues and embed the positive intention (and hence psychological reversal) behind the situation you want to change.
The example below is about changing beliefs.
First write down the belief so that you can repeat it word for word.
Secondly, say it out loud and give it a score for emotional intensity.
Thirdly, say the sequence s–l–o–w–l–y.
“There is an older, wiser part of me, who already knows that I no longer need to believe (use your own beliefs)
….that it is dangerous to have expectations and show up in my life…. if I have expectations I will only be disappointed….
That older, wiser part of me is happy to inform the rest of me now ( even while knowing that there may be parts of me who are not ready to let this go, taking into consideration my personal ecology and the positive intentions behind that belief)
It is now doing so with ease and grace.
Information transfer is now complete.
I receive this information with joy and gratitude.”
Fourthly, score again for emotional intensity. Repeat until the statement feels totally untrue. Just breathe for a couple of minutes to feel any changes or differences in how you feel or how you think about the situation. You may have a new realization or a deeper issue or belief that then comes to the surface. If so write it down, and repeat the sequence for the new statement.
Money blocks come in a few guises: beliefs about me (and my parents and my family), beliefs about money, beliefs about people with money. Beliefs are usually about the right/wrong, good/bad, desirable/undesirable variety. Much of our ideas on self-worth, good and evil and identity could be tied to money, wealth and abundance. Sometimes there’s a kind of ‘humble pride’ as a defence mechanism against feeling bad about poverty. As always, substitute with words that resonate with you. You may also try using the second person voice (“you are not good enough”) instead of the first person voice (“I am not good enough”). This is often more effective when you had someone in your life who kept telling you you weren’t good enough.
It is useful to work on different word-themes around money, e.g., “wealth”, “abundance”, “lots and lots of money”, “profit”, “fees”, “salary”…. It is also useful to work on idioms, proverbs and common sayings. They have a way of programming us.
