okay everybody
00:28
good morning let's start with some
00:32
tapping

00:35
our resistance
00:37
to our practice today so follow along
00:40
with me
00:40
and repeat after me and you can change
00:43
the words to anything that makes the
00:45
most sense for you
00:46
if i'm not catching your particular
00:48
issue
00:49
so tapping on the side of the hand

01:00
and i'm just not sure i'm ready to shift
01:03
into meditation
01:04
just yet
01:08
i'm okay i deeply and completely
01:13
accept myself and i accept how i'm
01:16
feeling right now
01:21
even though i'm just not up for this
01:22
right now
01:25
and i'd rather just be doing something
01:26

i deeply and completely love and accept
01:32
myself
01:34
exactly as i am it's
01:37
all okay
01:43
even though i'm sitting here and i feel
01:46
like i don't have time
01:50
and i have other things i need to be
01:52
doing
01:55
i deeply and completely love
01:58
and accept myself
02:03
i'm going to do my best and that's
02:06
enough
02:10
top of the head i'm just not feeling
02:13
this right now

02:20
just not up for this right now i have
02:23
other things i need to do
02:27

i just don't want to focus on this right
02:34
now
02:36
under the eye
02:40
ugh i just don't want to do this
02:47
under the nose
02:50
i just don't want to meditate right now
02:53
i don't want the burden of a quiet mind
02:55
right now
02:58
under the lips
03:02
i just don't want to be in control right
03:05
now

03:26
side of the ribs
03:31
i just don't want to do this right now
03:35

03:41
now take a deep breath in through the
03:43
nose and out through the mouth
03:58
what is your precise resistance
04:03
what's that thing that you would rather
04:05
do
04:06
than meditate we're going to do one more
04:09
round and you're going to use your own
04:12
words
04:14
take a minute
04:24
side of the hand
04:29
even though state your resistance
04:35
i deeply and completely love
04:38
and accept myself
04:42
two more times even though i'm feeling
04:46
like
04:47
fill in the blank
04:53
i'm okay i deeply and completely
04:58
love and accept myself exactly as i am
05:05
even though i have this resistance
05:10
because i need to or want to
05:14
fill in the blank
05:19
i'm okay i
05:22
deeply and completely love and accept
05:25
myself
05:26
exactly as i am
05:31
now create a reminder phrase for your
05:33
resistance
05:35
some way to connect with it and you're
05:38
going to say it on each of the tapping
05:39
points
05:40
so top of the head
05:43
state your reminder phrase
05:48
eyebrow point state your reminder phrase
05:55
side of the eye
05:58
state your reminder phrase
06:03
under the eye
06:07
state your reminder phrase
06:11
under the nose
06:14
state your reminder phrase
06:19
under the lips
06:24
state your reminder phrase
06:30
collarbone points
06:36
state your reminder phrase
06:43
side of the rib cage
06:47
state your reminder phrase
06:51
and i like to do both sides
07:01
take a deep breath in through the nose
07:03
out through the mouth
07:19
okay so today
07:23
we're going to get the heart engaged
07:28
today we are going to take some
07:31
difficulty in your day
07:34
something that you really don't want to
07:37
deal with
07:38
something that when you think about it
07:40
it just makes you feel angry
07:45
and we're going to do a practice that
07:48
brings you face to face with your
07:49
difficulties
07:51
but also teaches you how to open up in
07:54
the face of them
07:55
and accept them while initiating your
07:58
generosity
08:00
so here's what that's going to look like
08:03
let's say you have some person
08:06
you know and if it's if it's night time
08:07
you can you can
08:09
pick someone you're going to have to
08:10
deal with tomorrow or pick something
08:12
from your day that is still with you
08:15
so let's say you have a difficult person
08:18
you are going to place that person on
08:20
the screen of your mind
08:24
see that person on the screen of your
08:26
mind or maybe it's just your job
08:29
whatever you have whatever difficult
08:31
person or situation
08:33
whatever thing isn't working whatever
08:36
harbinger of chaos
08:38
you have in your life and we all have
08:40
them
08:42
you're going to place that on the screen
08:43
of your mind
08:46
on the inhale
08:50
you are going to open yourself up
08:54
to everything negative about that person
08:58
or situation you are just going to pull
09:03
its negativity its chaos
09:06
everything that's difficult about it
09:08
everything you can't accept
09:11
you're just going to pull it right into
09:13
yourself
09:14
on that inhale no resistance to it
09:18
no protections from it you're going to
09:20
take it on
09:22
and take it in at the top of the inhale
09:26
there's that moment where you shift from
09:29
the inhale to the exhale
09:33
in that little gap moment you're going
09:35
to say a
09:36
silent intention
09:42
that the antidote to that suffering or
09:45
that
09:45
chaos or that difficulty
09:49
come forward from you and
09:52
on the exhale you are going to flow
09:56
that antidote
10:00
to whatever you have on the screen of
10:02
your mind
10:05
so on the inhale you're taking it in all
10:08
the negativity
10:09
all the suffering everything awful about
10:11
it
10:12
on the exhale you have unbridled
10:16
generosity a complete willingness to
10:19
give
10:21
a willingness to open yourself up
10:23
completely to be
10:24
nothing but the exact antidote
10:29
to the suffering in that situation or
10:31
that person
10:35
so get your person or your situation
10:39
could be a spouse a pet a co-worker
10:43
or just your job in general
10:46
something that's just making your life
10:48
feel awful something
10:50
that's making your day look like it's
10:52
going to be awful
10:55
put that on the screen of your mind
10:59
on the inhale breathe
11:04
all that negativity in pull it towards
11:06
you
11:07
see it coming from that picture in your
11:10
mind
11:11
into your body filling you up
11:17
then at the top of that inhale shift
11:20
into an antidote
11:22
let the best parts of your being flow
11:25
towards it
11:26
and we're going to do this for the rest
11:28
of the session breathing in the
11:30
negativity
11:32
and exhaling the best our spirit has to
11:34
offer
11:36
to the source of our suffering
11:41
do this until i tell you to stop
13:48
open your heart
14:10
let it all in and let it all go
16:11
nothing to protect yourself from
16:17
nothing to hold back
16:23
nothing to figure out
16:30
breathe it in and let it go
17:39
okay let's talk a little bit
17:45
at a deep level this really this
17:48
practice is the essence
17:50
of showing up
17:54
showing up facing the difficulties of
17:57
your day
17:58
and dealing with them like an adult
18:02
so this is a practice that shouldn't
18:03
just stay on a meditation cushion
18:06
this is something that i want you to
18:07
take into your day today
18:09
and as you encounter those difficult
18:11
moments those difficult people
18:14
instead of distracting yourself for
18:16
pushing them away
18:18
stop and be with them
18:22
breathe them in really experience them
18:26
and then on the exhale be a part of a
18:29
solution
18:31
really just let the solution the
18:34
antidote flow from you
18:36
if you're doing that you're doing your
18:38
part
18:40
and if you really use today
18:44
to do that every time you start to get
18:47
triggered
18:48
i want you to notice how different you
18:51
feel
18:52
at the end of this day
18:55
when you go to bed at night you're going
18:56
to feel like a different person
18:58
than you felt when you went to bed last
19:00
night
19:02
so practice this let me know how it goes
19:06
for those of you that i have sessions
19:08
with today i look forward to working
19:10
with you
19:10
and for the rest of you may today be the
19:12
best day of your life
19:14
okay bye
