What is my intention?

Intention is the core of all conscious life.
Conscious intention colours and moves everything.
~ Master Hsing Yun

This is the one of the most important questions you can ask your self in life. Asking the question 'What is my intention?' helps you to get clear and focused on what you are intending to have happen, with anything. Write your answers down. You'll probably be amazed at what you write, and it's all good, you can use it all in your tapping, every single bit of it.

By banishing doubt and trusting your intuitive feelings,
you clear a space for the power of intention to flow through.
~ Wayne Dyer

If your intention is to: get rid of “it”, tap “it” away, want “it” gone and so on, while totally understandable, “it”, very likely, is not going to budge. In fact you'll probably feel worse and if you don't, you'll probably only have temporary relief from “it”. One of the best things you can do in this case is to tap on your frustration, rage, anger, resentment, or overwhelm that “it” is still here. And while you're at it, describe in detail what “it” is to you, write it down so you can re-read what you have written. Get really really clear on why you want to get rid of whatever “it” is.

Intentions compressed into words enfold magical power.
~ Deepak Chopra

If your intention is to have true health and you're willing to do what it takes, your intention, or approach, will be different. You'll realise at some stage that wanting the symptoms gone doesn't solve or heal anything. Pushing through your physical or emotional pain, or avoiding it, fighting it, battling it, or wanting to get rid of it, just makes that pain have to scream even louder because you're not listening. You're not listening to what is really going on. We all want the quick fix sometimes, but we miss what Carol Look calls the 'energetic invitation'. The invitation to be aware, the invitation to be at peace, the invitation to be kind to our self, the invitation to accept and love our self exactly as we are now, which, as Carl Rogers says, paradoxically helps us to change.

Intention moves energy.

Energy evolution

The physical act of allowing energy to move in, through and out of our energy systems is from Emotrance. If we can allow that natural action to take place, the movement of the energy itself, in, through and out of our system, nourishes us. It makes us stronger, more resilient, calm, peaceful, joyous and brighter.

Just imagine allowing all incoming energies to move into your energy system, through you and then to be able to let them go? Not judging the energies, not criticising them, not being shamed for having the energy of anger or guilt in your system for instance, which of course is what will stop it in its tracks. All the ways the natural movement of energy is impeded, which can become lifetime patterns of how we deal with energies we've learned are "bad" or "negative" or "shameful".

Being able to handle energies in all their forms is the next step in our evolution I think. We won't create shields for the energies we can't handle and therefore starve our energy systems of those energies, and we'll be able to allow energy to move once it is in our systems, so no blockages occur. Having the skill to allow energy to move, in, through and out is a huge resource. Everyone can learn how to do this, I think it's what we are designed to be able to do, and to do it naturally and easily.

Our energy affects everything, our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. As long as energy is moving as it is designed to do, we have health. Imagine all of our energies free flowing, not getting stuck or trapped and manifesting in physical or mental dis-ease?

Can we let go of what we haven't assimilated?

We experience because we have the ability to feel ~ Antonio Damasio

How can we let go of what we haven't fully digested? Isn't it necessary to experience or absorb whatever it is so we can let go?

How do we do that?

Well, we can tap for the courage to feel what we don't want to feel or experience. We can tap for the frozen and suspended feelings and experiences that we just couldn't feel or process at the time they happened. Irish psychiatrist, Ivor Browne, calls these unassimilated or unexperienced experiences "the frozen present" or trauma. We can tap to allow that experience to move through us so we can digest it, and then let it go. This creates more room for other experiences so we don't feel so full up, so overwhelmed or feel as if we are about to break down. TIP, try tapping back and forth between your karate chop point (small intestine: absorbing/assimilating) and your index finger point (large intestine: letting go).


Even though this ... is frozen, I now allow it to move in, through and out


Even though I can't fully take in .... I'm tapping for the courage to allow it to move in, through and out


Even though I don't want to absorb this ... because ... I'm tapping to be able to allow it to move in, through and out


Even though this ... has not moved in a long time, I am now tapping to allow it to move in, through and out


The least movement is of importance to all nature. The entire ocean is affected by a pebble ~ Blaise Pascal

Small Intestine Meridian

Whenever we are faced with an overwhelming experience that we sense as potentially disintegrating, we have the ability to suspend it and "freeze" it in an unassimilated, inchoate form and maintain it in that state indefinitely, or for as long as necessary ~ Ivor Browne

The small intestine meridian is commonly known as the karate chop point or the side of hand point in EFT. Tapping this point continuously corrects psychological reversal, which is any block that we may have, conscious or unconscious, to healing. The small intestine is where we absorb and assimilate the nutrients from our food. If we carry across the metaphor of assimilation to our experiences and feelings, I don't think it's any surprise that this point helps us to 'digest the indigestible' or unfreeze an experience. Anything that remains unexperienced or undigested, whether it's food, an experience or a feeling, causes indigestion. A hurtful remark can give us the physical sensation of not being able to 'take it in', stomach it or absorb it, just as much as the food we eat. What we don't assimilate or digest can never be eliminated or let go of. The frozen energy needs to be freed up first, so it can move and be released. I have found tapping on this point alone can give huge relief. EFT shortcut diagram and procedure
