Conflict is a Normal Part of Friendships
I was paired with a partner during my five-month tapping course. We had to work out calls through different time zones, which created tension between us. Through that, we learned that conflict was a normal part of friendship and that feeling validated is one of the biggest parts of that experience. #relationship #communication #friendship #conflict

Self-Love Isn’t Always Pretty
Self-love is the foundation of your life: it’s how you’ll interact with every experience. It can only be created by you, within you. But I think the way it’s being shown, for example through social media, is a demonstration of loving yourself. It’s misconstruing the idea that self-love is always happy when it’s actually full of tough choices. #lovingyourself #selflove #choices

Self-Compassion Is Key
The idea of self-love is prevalent but misunderstood right now. I believe self-compassion is key. We’re human and we make mistakes. The ability to say that’s okay is self-love. #lovingyourself #selflove #mindfulness #selfcompassion #mistakes

It Took Me Five Hours to Upload My First Instagram Post
When I put my tapping business under a brand, it took me five hours to upload my first Instagram post. I had a fear of putting myself out there. I’ve realized now that my job is to share information that people need and it has nothing to do with my fear of rejection. The more you try new things, the more it becomes second nature. And as you push yourself, you’ll grow. #productivity #wordsintoactions #fear

Asking for Help Is Beautiful
I think we’re in a movement where we’re celebrating vulnerability. It’s essential for connection to show up completely as you are. Asking for help is the most beautiful thing. It’s an act of vulnerability while honoring the person you’re asking. #TheAOProject #bigquestions #vulnerability

The Universe Works Through People
I believe that the universe works through people. Even though we’re all on our own journey, if you see something that resonates with you that someone else has said or done, it’s still a part of your journey. #TheAOProject

I’m Not Done Growing
When I started building the Instagram page for my business, I was reluctant to share my story. I felt that I had to only show that I’ve been fully healed, and I later realized I’m not done growing - nor do I want to be. #productivity #wordsintoactions #growth #healing

What Are We Afraid Of?
We do errands to avoid big-ticket items because they’re easy, controllable and give us an instant sense of accomplishment. We need to ask ourselves why we’re afraid of doing that important big task. A lot of it comes down to fear of rejection or oftentimes a fear that once we get to a certain accomplishment, we won’t feel successful. #productivity #wordsintoactions #procrastination #fear

Social Media and Value
I love how social media is used for positive movements. At the same time, there’s a lot of judgment that comes along with it. The most beautiful thing is that I know what I do has value regardless of what others think. #socialstatus #socialmedia #titles #credibility #value

Money Is Energy
Money is energy. There are some people out there who are in flow with money, and they seem to not care about it, but it shows up when needed. It’s important to know that if you’re generous, the universe will provide for you. #money #generosity #universe

Are The Rich The Happiest?
I don’t think money can bring happiness. It can increase your general well-being, but going back to traveling, some of the happiest people I’ve met are those with very little. #money #freedom #happiness #travel

Loneliness Is Present When We Self-Judge
I think there are a lot of facts out there that show we are more lonely than ever. We often live alone and we're attached to our screens. I also find that loneliness is more present when I’m self-judging. #loneliness #aloneness #judgment

We Need to Be Sexually Woke
As much as sex is out in the open, it still seems difficult for people to have a conversation about it early in a relationship. There are so many women who aren’t ready to be intimate, but they think it’s the expectation. #sex #taboo #intimacy #relationship

Our Meridian Points
I adjust the way I speak about tapping depending on the audience I’m speaking to. If people aren’t familiar with the language, meridian points are points we would typically touch if we were upset about something. #lifepurpose #purpose #path #selflove

The Beauty of Tapping
Tapping has been proven to be more effective at treating depression than antidepressant medication. It also lowers cortisol levels by 25% after an hour. My wish for this world is for tapping to be a normal part of our daily self-care practice. #lifepurpose #purpose #path

How I Found Tapping
If I hadn’t felt like I hit my bottom, I wouldn’t have found tapping. I discovered it in my first therapy session - not knowing what it was - and I fell in love with the practice. As a practitioner, I’m there to facilitate people’s own answers, which I believe come up with tapping. #lifepurpose #purpose #path #answers #tapping

The Many Uses of Tapping
I am not in a position to solve someone else’s problem, because it’s their life and experience. Neither is anyone else. People know there’s an inner wisdom that knows what they need, and this wisdom comes up with tapping. My clients come from all walks of life, and tapping addresses all of their different issues. #lifepurpose #purpose #path #tapping

Your Soul’s Purpose Doesn’t Have to Be Evident to Others
I think we do have a purpose, but I don’t know if it’s as big as people want it to be. Some people think it’s some big accomplishment that’s evident to other people, but your soul’s purpose could be to learn how to forgive. #lifepurpose #purpose

We Don’t Want to Deal with the Wounds

Helping Others Find Their Balance
In general, when I work one-on-one with someone, we work on whatever is presenting itself that week. Over time, I’d like to get people to a state of being where they can approach issues they’ve faced before our session. Through workshops and retreats, I work with people to build self-acceptance. #harmony #balance #peace #selfacceptance

Achieving Harmony & Balance
Surrendering and Accepting
I did a tapping session with one of my clients who had a chronic skin disease, and from the tapping, it cleared up. I do tapping with clients who have autoimmune or chronic conditions because they’re in a state where they don’t want to accept what’s happening to them. A lot of people have a hard time with acceptance because they feel like it’s surrendering, but there’s so much more waiting for you if you can start from a foundation of acceptance. #harmony #balance #acceptance

Our Thoughts Are Closer Than We Think
There’s a Japanese doctor who did an experiment with water. He exposed a container of water to negative energy, and he exposed another container to positive energy. He froze both containers and looked at the crystals under a microscope. The container he spoke positively to had beautiful crystals and the negative ones didn’t. Our bodies are made out of 60% water, so we need to think about how close our thoughts are to our bodies. #harmony #balance #mindbodyconnection #water #positivity

As I Read, I Felt the Pressure Taken off Everything
A groundbreaking book I read is Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian Weiss. I wasn’t open to it before, but in one week three people told me to read it. The idea that we’re souls that have different experiences through different lifetimes takes the pressure off everything. #harmony #balance #books

There Are Only Two Things You Can Control
The Pocket Therapist by Therese Borchard is full of small chapters with questions. The author didn’t give specific stories, she wanted you to take in how the information related to your own life. Out of that, I learned there are only two things you can control: the way you feel about yourself and your thoughts, and your reactions to your emotions. #harmony #balance #books #emotions

Balance Doesn’t Come Easy
My life has to be in balance all the time. When I spend too much time in one compartment, I’ll pull myself out to keep that balance. It takes planning, honoring yourself and the ability to say no. #harmony #balance #timemanagement

25% Of People Will Like You
We meet people we resonate with and those we don’t. Someone I know said that 25% of people will like you, and to stay with those people. Usually, when we feel like we don’t like a certain person, it’s often a reflection of our own baggage. #relationship #connection #baggage

You Can’t Run Your Own Business Without Self-Love
I went to a weekend retreat for energy practitioners, where I had a full-blown meltdown. I ended up connecting with a psychologist that used tapping, and he was rolling out a group program. I paused getting a certification to do the program, and looking back I realized I needed to help myself before I could work on others. #lovingyourself #selflove #tapping

I Thought Traveling Would Fix Everything
Before I left for my travels, I said to myself, "I want to fall in love with someone or something elsewhere." It didn’t happen. I naively came back thinking life would fall into place, which is when I hit bottom. I tried something called tapping and I loved the practice so much that I went to get certified in it. In the end, I found self-love. #lovingyourself #selflove #tapping

Traveling as a Lone Female
I traveled for 10 months, and I saw a constant theme of the oppression of women. That was difficult and eye-opening as a lone female traveler. On the positive side, I observed faith around the world. I was in awe of people who took time and effort to create or build things in honor of their faith. #happiness #faith #women #travel

Moving Between Emotional States
We place judgment on happiness and negative judgment on sadness, but both are parts of life. Being content and open to freely move between both states is more important. #happiness #peace #sadness
