Take wrong turns, talk to strangers:)

“Take wrong turns. Talk to strangers. Open unmarked doors. And if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they are doing. Do things without always knowing how they’ll turn out”.   Randall Munroe

Isn’t this a wonderful quote? The essence of living from love and curiosity, rather than from fear.

Those are the things we’re told NOT to do as children and so we stifle ourselves, keep ourselves small because of someone else’s fear.

Where does that come from? From other peoples lives, other times. Times that were different to ours, where starvation, attack, losing all you love was the reality and the trauma of those times gets passed down to us in many ways.

We’ve always known that the fears get passed down by the things that the people around us say and do and now new research at New York’s Mount Sinai hospital with holocaust survivors shows that  trauma is also passed down in the genes. These are things we may have thought were true, but how great to see the scientific evidence for it.

Does that mean we’re stuck with all that fear? Not at all. It is possible to make changes to our feelings and our beliefs right now and as we do, we change the neural pathways in our brains and I believe we also change the genes that are switched on and the way those genes express themselves. If they can be changed by trauma, it follows that they can be changed by the release of trauma.

The limitations that were in place for our ancestors are often no longer relevant for us in 2015 and for the lives that we’re living now and when we release them, we are opening ourselves to creating new beliefs and feelings that are appropriate for who we are and where we are right now! Hurray for Tapping!! We are so lucky to have the skills and understanding that we have now, that weren’t available, even to our parents generation.

It’s time to start again, from where you are now and to create the beliefs and feelings that will support you living the life you want to live now. What a gift to the world that would be:)

And here’s a tapalong to get you started:)

There are so many ways you can use EFT to get you started on a new journey and the courses I’ve created are my way of offering help and possibilities to those who want to live life differently and maybe to help others live their life differently too.

They teach simple and new techniques that help you to get to the heart of what’s keeping you stuck. They teach unique ways of working to create deep and lasting change.

Not only will you finish with a brand new shiny set of tools, but you’ll know how to use them and you’ll have used them to make those changes in your own life. It’s such a win/win. You learn and clear your own stuff at the same time and if you choose to go down that route, you can also become an EFT Expert Practitioner.

Unfinished Past life business and being compassionate to yourself

IMG_0056Isn’t it amazing this work? What a joy to have the power to clear the stuff that gets in our way and of course what brings it up best of all is relationships:)

“Stuff” came up last week for me and I realized that the amount of triggering going on meant that there were a lot of aspects and that they mostly didn’t belong in the present. Generally I find that what goes on now has it’s roots in the past and to clear it properly, the past is where we need to go.

That’s why I developed the Clearing the Ancestral patterns work and the Rebirthing, it makes a huge difference to clients when you can clear that deep stuff first.

I worked with a colleague Sylvia Jackson 

And we got into all sorts:) Stuff I’d not thought of for years and stuff I thought I’d cleared, (funny how that happens isn’t it:) I think it’s just aspects we couldn’t reach earlier,) and of course a lot of it wasn’t mine in the first place, it belonged to my mother and grandmother and probably went back for centuries.

In addition there seemed to be some unfinished past life business going on. Although I don’t talk about past lives to clients unless they mention them, there are ways of using language to clear them, even if you don’t know what they are, without interfering with your clients belief system. ( I teach that as part of the EFT Expert Masterclasses live and Online.)

I personally think that we come in with work to do based on past lives, ancestral survival strategies and what we model from those around us.

In this session, it seemed there were 6 of us linked in this life that had old unfinished business from other lives. As we cleared the unfinished business, I found myself able to reconnect to the resourceful, loving and compassionate self that I like to be. I was able to see people as they are, rather than the enemy:) and I could see me clearly too, with all the light and shadow that is me. Most importantly I was able to feel compassion for me. For the things I’ve been through in my life and for how I’ve responded.

It’s where healing starts, compassion for ourselves. All the blame in the world that we put out there to others, is just a reflection of what we’re feeling about ourselves. When you can love yourself, even just a little bit more each day, we find we can love others too and the world looks a happier place. We’re in an upward spiral and that adds to the joy in the world.

If you need help in finding love and compassion for yourself or those around you, why not book a session with me Jacqui@jacquicrooks.com and clear the stuff that you’re carrying that isn’t yours and then the stuff that is:) Or you could join me on the EFT Expert Masterclasses Live and clear while you learn. They are a lot of fun, you get to connect to lovely people and you learn while you clear your own deep stuff. The things taught on this course are not taught anywhere else and you will indeed be an expert when you’ve integrated them into your work and then you can have fun refining them and making them your own, in your own unique way.

Here’s a Tapalong on clearing past lives 

 Coming soon.

Kicked by a bean!!

IMG_2067

As you may know, I’ll be a Grannie in November. It’s so exciting and when Reema my daughter in law visited last week I had a word with him or her:) They don’t want to know the sex, but there’s definitely a feeling that he’s a boy and probably a footballer, though I guess she could be a girl tap dancer:)

Anyway , Little Bean as the baby is known is very shy. (S)he doesn’t co operate with scans, so it’s difficult to see him/her and when you put your hand on her/him while (s)he’s kicking (s)he stops.

 

A wriggly Bean kicking during the scan:)

I’d done some surrogate tapping for her/him a few days before, after (s)he had a fright, and I really wanted to connect with him/her, so I said “This is Grannie Jacqui, it would be lovely if you could kick me to say hello, ” and (s)he did. there was a moment of thinking about it and then a kick straight into my hand and a few wriggles for good measure. It was so lovely to feel that life there, preparing to come out and live in the world.

The he/she conundrum reminds me of working with clients when they say, ” I was supposed to be a boy (or girl) and I was a disappointment” “I wasn’t supposed to be who I am.”

We’re so lucky that we can use EFT to clear emotions and beliefs right back from the time in the womb and it’s great that I know about the problems it can cause so that we can tell Little Bean that he/she is loved and welcomed whatever sex or character (s)he is.

If you are having a baby, or know someone who is, think about what would be really helpful for them to know. Share it with them. They will connect with you and that understanding will be with them when they’re born. What a gift:)

It’s never too late to make changes for yourself either. If your birth was less than perfect, if you picked up limiting beliefs based on what was going on for you, you can use EFT to clear what doesn’t work and give yourself new information that will be useful for you.

I explain and demonstrate how in my Rebirthing yourself, Rebirthing your children DVD and you could experience it for yourself In the Masterclass live series, or the Masterclasses online, both starting in September. You could even book a session with me and go through it one to one.

This work makes a huge difference to people. Life really does change when you’re no longer carrying those old mistaken beliefs and when part of you knows that you are always in the right place at the right time, with the right people, doing the right thing.

As David Hamilton say, “You can only do it right.” and what a relief it is when we believe it:)

Here’s a tapalong to remind ourselves that we didn’t have all the information that we needed to make the decisions we made about ourselves, when we were born and that it’s ok to let them go now.

And if you had problems connecting to the tapalong in last weeks blog, here’s the link again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjSPHeYuOPM (full link as the hyperlink still seems not to work)

Tell me the old, old, story and cherry picking:)

IMG_3614

Hi Folks,

I’m back home now and suddenly I’ve found myself back in the middle of an old story I thought I’d let go of, after much tapping, several years ago! How many times have we done that I wonder:)

I found myself repeating it endlessly, to myself and anyone else who would listen. I’d rehearse it, look for justifications for it, generally wallow in it and even the part that usually tells me off for doing that was silent. I actually found a family member who acknowledged it and that really gave me joy. See I was right!!! It did happen like that!! It’s wasn’t fair!!

And where did all of that get me? In a very uncomfortable place, feeling feelings that weren’t appropriate for my life now, disconnecting me from people I’d prefer to be connected too and actually disempowered.

I’d chosen to step back into the role of victim and as we all know, that keeps us small and stuck. It’s impossible to live your life openly and joyously and to express who you are in the world, in all your multicoloured glory, when you’re curled up in a ball as a victim:)

It took some tapping, and some emotion code and support from friends, (thank you:)  ) before I could see what I was doing and that it wasn’t where I wanted to be, or who I wanted to be.

It feels great now, as though I can breathe more deeply, move more freely and really connect to the world and the people in it. I’m me and they are who they are and it’s all perfect. We’re all doing a great job in the best way we know how and that’s OK:)

So I created a tapalong on telling the old, old story, and if you resonate with this, it’s for you:)

If you’d like to edit your story, or even write a new one and you’d like my support, you can

Book a one to one session with me

Do the Introduction to EFT day on 11.09.15

Join EFT masterclass live, becoming an EFT Expert on 12.09.15 in both these workshops you’ll get to clear a lot of “stuff” while you learn.

Join EFT Masterclass online – creating an EFT expert toolkit on 10.09.15 You’ll get to clear stuff as you practice with other trainees:)

And the cherries are from my tree. It’s not the picking that takes the time, it’s the stoning and while I was doing that, there was time to think, which gave me insights on what to tap on.

I wonder how you give yourself time to think and connect with yourself? I’d love to know:)

With love from Jacqui
