You have your hand on the switch. You are the allower or the resister. And your emotions tell you which you're doing right now. It's easy once you understand the formula: When you feel good, you're allowing good. When you don't feel good, you are not allowing good. We didn't say, when you feel good you are allowing good, and when you feel bad you are allowing bad (although it may translate into your experience in that way). There is only a Source of Well-being—which you are allowing or not.

How are you feeling right now? I am feeling pretty good about my decision to stay home from the NYC Marathon so I am allowing good to come from that. I signed up for a new course (another year long one) yesterday but I gave myself about a week and alot of EFT before making that decision. I didn't want to just jump in and form an opinion and then "regret" it or "think I made the wrong decision" (again). So, this time (as opposed to the marathon decision) I had more time to examine my emotions and how I felt about it. The few "negative" emotions I had didn't feel good. So I examined them and they really weren't what I thought they were. They were really fear based hiding under something "more acceptable" such as "I don't have enough time" etc. EFT helped me get into the real cause of the "bad feelings" and once I uncovered them and tapped on them I was able to be "unstuck" and allow the good emotions in and the ease with which the excitement flowed into my "unstuck" drain once again amazed me.
We spend way too much time analyzing things instead of just going with our emotions and figuring out what it is they are telling us. Our goal should simply be to allow good into our lives and cherish it. We need to stop standing on our head and looking at things every which way in order to dissect them. Just go with your feelings and you'll be right most of the time. Of course, that's not natural for us but if we practice feeling good and as a result allowing the good in, we'll be surprised and when we see the results, we'll want to continue to allow the good feelings in.
Try it, you'll like it. Partner up with someone to coach you on this. Let them guide you in your allowing good to come into your life.
