I am in the midst of an experience that has threatened my feelings of peace, worthiness, and most especially, security.
I have examined how I have manifested this, and find the answers are pretty clear. I had old programming (still) that I am unworthy of a happy, abundant, peaceful life, and fear that the rug can be pulled out from under me at any time. ...So that's just what I manifested. Out went the rug!
The illusion is that I am helpless, which I dismiss as obviously untrue. I know I have only to release all resistance, focus on what I do want to feel, enjoying it clearly in the present moment, and I will manifest circumstances much more to my liking. :)
I have worked on releasing each limiting belief that supports this illusion, and have tapped away all of the unpleasant sensations in my body that feel like they stick to it. I have followed our @Stingray's advice in his answer here, and try not to bother with what it all means, just trusting that the supporting feeling will be tapped away, and that will break down the building blocks of what I am manifesting.
I chased them, calling them what they are, and what they feel like, and stating that I am safe as I release and let go. Starting with my whole middle, to upper abdomen, to throat, to a thin, cold pinstripe running down my breastbone. That last little bit, I have identified as a sneaking suspicion that I am kidding myself. That all of this relief may feel nice, but that big bloody boogeyman is still coming to get me. I keep tapping on it to release, and it just doesn't budge.
I feel like I don't have the most helpful phrases or attitudes or something, to release this last, crucial little bit. I'm missing something...
Any ideas or advice you can share would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
Love, Grace :)
A few (random) points spring to mind here.
If the feeling resists leaving, don't fight it. Just let it be for now. Everything bad feeling is actually on your side anyway because bad feelings are just a mask for your Inner Being to directly point you to what you might wish to "play" with next in your life.
So if the feeling is being stubborn right now, there's a definite reason for it. Since we are projecting into a physical time-based reality, we sometimes have to play along with the illusion of time just to keep up the whole immersive experience so it can sometimes be a case of leave it for now and try again in a few hours/days/weeks.
I would just relax a bit and trust that, since your Inner Being is clearly involved (because of the strong bad feeling), it knows what it's doing even if your physical self hasn't figured it out yet :)
It's always useful to have a toolbox of techniques handy for situations like this. So if something doesn't work immediately, perhaps because you have become "numb" to the method from using it frequently, a different approach can sometimes get the ball rolling again.
...and actually most importantly. In fact, it's so important that it makes Firstly and Secondly somewhat irrelevant...but then this answer would be way too short to provide value-for-money and people would be demanding refunds :)
So, anyway, most importantly of all...you don't really have to clean it up ...you just have to find ways to get yourself back into predominant Vortex alignment again and you can just zoom out of range of it all.
In any case, Life would be soooooooo dull if we actually managed to clean up all the bad-feeling stuff so it's actually quite fortunate that we can't because it keeps the ride going ...and rides are only fun when you are riding them, don't you think? :)
Leaving the subject and coming back later to that subject is a good idea as mentioned by @Stingray.
I also find that sometimes some part of us does not want to let go of a limiting belief completely. People who do energy methods like EFT know that often you can bring a subject down to a one or two on a scale from 1-10. But then sometimes it doesn't seem to move further.
This basically comes down to the self perpetuating mechanisms of beliefs explained by Bashar. The negative belief is afraid of losing its identity and thinks that it (and you) will die if you let go of it. So sometimes there are some tricky mechanisms that hide themselves and you can't even notice them even if you try.
I'm going to suggest two methods you might want to try on that stubborn belief. Especially the second one IMO is a "super-weapon" you're going to like because it's so powerful that everyone would consider it cheating if clearing negative beliefs would be a contest. Seriously! It makes clearing stubborn beliefs so much easier.
The first one is my personal version of the Zpoint "Opening Protocol".
Just read the following sentences and let your feelings fill in the blank. You don't have to use words, even though you could. Then tap the feelings away that come up or use any clearing method you like to clear that feeling that comes up.
Rinse and repeat as often as you like.
Now the second method I would like to suggest you try is IMO one of the most interesting and ingenious methods I came across. You basically get into the Vortex on another subject and then you think about the subject which is bothering you for a few seconds. And then you immediately bring your attention back to your in-the-Vortex subject. By repeating this process a few times, you can easily bring your problem to neutral or even higher on the emotional guidance scale with ease.
You can go as high on the EGS as you wish.
This is so cool because you get into the Vortex where all the answers to all problems are anyway. So you can do no wrong here. But then you use the power of the Vortex to clear negative, stubborn beliefs in an amazingly fun way.
