00:01:10.350 –> 00:01:11.910
Karen Stultz: Using a little things like.

00:01:13.380 –> 00:01:15.570
Karen Stultz: Well i’ve integrated i’ve created.

00:01:16.740 –> 00:01:17.280
Karen Stultz: The.

00:01:18.540 –> 00:01:22.950
Karen Stultz: system basically from hypnosis hypnosis.

00:01:23.970 –> 00:01:44.490
Karen Stultz: I have a degree in hypnotherapy i’m a master nlp and certifications but none of that makes any difference, I mean it’s basically you want results right so i’ve just integrated everything and eft and all of those different techniques in there, hundreds of them.

00:01:45.570 –> 00:02:07.530
Karen Stultz: And for those that don’t know eft is emotional freedom techniques and it’s techniques, because so many of them so i’ve just integrated all of them, along with essential oils and different things to help alleviate the blocks the frustrations the.

00:02:09.240 –> 00:02:10.680

00:02:12.540 –> 00:02:12.960
Karen Stultz: and

00:02:14.100 –> 00:02:19.050
Karen Stultz: relationship problems to it also helps that he does so yeah.

00:02:19.140 –> 00:02:20.640
kathygruver: With the coaching and then that’s great.

00:02:20.760 –> 00:02:25.590
Karen Stultz: To get rid of that you can actually grow your heart centered business.

00:02:26.460 –> 00:02:38.070
Jason Mefford: Because I think I think that’s you know that’s the biggest thing is, you talked about blocks frustrations and obviously procrastination which usually procrastination is because there’s some block right.

00:02:38.670 –> 00:02:41.550
Karen Stultz: Then I know we’ve we’ve talked about this, I mean we love.

00:02:41.550 –> 00:02:46.260
Jason Mefford: hypnosis nlp eft all this kind of stuff we geek out on this stuff.

00:02:46.320 –> 00:02:47.910
Jason Mefford: On here so we’re glad to have you all right.

00:02:48.570 –> 00:02:49.050
Jason Mefford: But it’s.

00:02:49.230 –> 00:02:54.030
Jason Mefford: it’s it’s just amazing I mean like you said you know you’re at heart energy techniques.

00:02:55.200 –> 00:03:11.730
Jason Mefford: How much of the time it’s us that are blocking what’s going on it’s some energy block it’s us not understanding, some of these simple and in very powerful techniques and a lot of people just don’t know about.

00:03:12.450 –> 00:03:19.950
Karen Stultz: Right that’s that’s it then, and you know, the thing is is so simple that a lot of people cannot believe.

00:03:20.820 –> 00:03:22.830
kathygruver: That they’re actually just set up because.

00:03:24.480 –> 00:03:29.700
Karen Stultz: it’s so simple and I had a client yesterday you know she’s.

00:03:30.990 –> 00:03:37.230
Karen Stultz: Really struggling with relationship loss, and we did one.

00:03:38.820 –> 00:03:49.590
Karen Stultz: Of the hgtv techniques and it’s like oh my gosh I feel light, you know it’s like I wow what happened.

00:03:50.880 –> 00:03:51.870
Karen Stultz: In one fashion.

00:03:52.740 –> 00:03:58.530
kathygruver: yeah and that’s great, and I think I love that you said simple because i’m just going to say that i’ve had so many people were you know.

00:03:59.040 –> 00:04:06.720
kathygruver: Like my father or family members, or you know clients, where I introduce some simple technique like I can’t be that easy What if it is that easy.

00:04:07.380 –> 00:04:09.240
kathygruver: Though that everybody be doing it well.

00:04:10.140 –> 00:04:17.280
kathygruver: What if it’s that easy you know what if you try it and you see that it works, and then you can tell all of your friends at the Bowling league that it is that easy.

00:04:17.490 –> 00:04:28.350
kathygruver: You know it, I think we have this idea in our mind that we have to struggle that we have to suffer that we, it has to be so complicated because we all know that it’s not what’s happening it’s the story we tell ourselves about what’s happening so.

00:04:28.410 –> 00:04:32.790
kathygruver: Talk about the simplicity of some of these techniques I love that you like made lifetime learner.

00:04:32.820 –> 00:04:35.040
kathygruver: Get all these techniques turn them into one thing.

00:04:36.300 –> 00:04:40.380
kathygruver: What was that point where you realized hey I needed to sort of make my own thing.

00:04:42.600 –> 00:04:48.930
Karen Stultz: Well, I tell you it basically I I was never into this, this was like.

00:04:49.440 –> 00:05:08.730
Karen Stultz: Total whoo whoo I was like probably your father it can’t be that easy, but I knew, deep down that anything had to be relatively simple relatively fast, so I started studying coaching found out coaching is great it’s wonderful so much faster than and better than 20 years of.

00:05:10.140 –> 00:05:27.060
Karen Stultz: In office psychotherapy and, in my estimation, and I said, but it isn’t fast enough, not for me I I need help, I need help now what else is out there, so, like you, lifelong learning and.

00:05:28.620 –> 00:05:30.420
Karen Stultz: I found that I was.

00:05:31.650 –> 00:05:52.560
Karen Stultz: But the oils help, but the oils only help if you also do this and that person is not into hypnosis and and they just want to prove you wrong, so what is another way what is another way and, finally, after all these certifications and degrees and whatnot I said.

00:05:53.790 –> 00:06:03.840
Karen Stultz: there’s got to be way, to put it all together and, and that is it so basically after I talked to one of my clients, we find out what the situation is.

00:06:04.710 –> 00:06:21.600
Karen Stultz: And we just start moving towards it and let’s let’s free it up, you know eft is another word for eft for your listeners if they don’t know they probably do because you’re very yeah tapping tapping and I also like the.

00:06:23.340 –> 00:06:23.940
Karen Stultz: The the.

00:06:25.050 –> 00:06:32.460
Karen Stultz: Ease of it and the forgiveness of it, the one thing my clients often say is.

00:06:33.030 –> 00:06:38.730
Karen Stultz: I don’t know if i’m doing it right you can’t do it wrong, we can’t do it wrong.

00:06:39.120 –> 00:06:49.050
kathygruver: And if you feel better you know you know there’s certain I don’t know that we’ve actually had an eft person per se, we have Mike mendell on we’ve talked about it, we had mark on be talking about how a photo photo.

00:06:49.320 –> 00:06:55.530
kathygruver: But you know the there’s certain locations that you’re supposed to tap I don’t do eft, but I think I kind of remember side of the hand.

00:06:56.550 –> 00:07:08.280
kathygruver: If you feel better when you’re done you didn’t do it wrong, you know do better at the end I think that’s with so many things you know with with any of these techniques, do you feel better it yeah that’s.

00:07:08.580 –> 00:07:08.970
Karen Stultz: that’s it.

00:07:10.140 –> 00:07:10.980
kathygruver: Better it’s that simple.

00:07:11.490 –> 00:07:12.810
Jason Mefford: Well, I think it’s great I mean it’s.

00:07:12.900 –> 00:07:13.560
Jason Mefford: like that.

00:07:14.580 –> 00:07:20.910
Jason Mefford: You know it’s like I mean your clients come in, they kind of tell you what’s going on and then it’s like you have a pharmacy you know.

00:07:21.450 –> 00:07:32.850
Jason Mefford: we’re not talking about pharmacology here but, but you know effectively where you can say well okay there’s these five things that can help you let’s now create something that’s going to work for you right.

00:07:33.750 –> 00:07:38.340
Jason Mefford: Because I remember you know when we’re talking with like Mandela about hypnosis there was somebody I mean he’s a.

00:07:39.210 –> 00:07:40.560
Karen Stultz: Huge in hypnosis.

00:07:40.560 –> 00:07:40.860
kathygruver: But.

00:07:41.100 –> 00:07:44.370
Jason Mefford: he’s amazing hypnosis wasn’t working.

00:07:44.400 –> 00:07:53.130
Jason Mefford: For this one client and so he did eft with him, and it was like boom that that hit it for him and so.

00:07:53.610 –> 00:07:59.670
Jason Mefford: Having all these different tools, I think, is fabulous because, like you said just one by themselves might not do it.

00:08:00.120 –> 00:08:18.000
Jason Mefford: Different people react, you know differently to different things, so you have a whole medicine cabinet, if you will, ways to help people, but I wanted to kind of come back is because we taught, you know talking about energy, and you use the word, you said, your client felt light.

00:08:19.020 –> 00:08:27.270
Jason Mefford: And I just wanted to talk about two words that I hear people say a lot and I used this word for a long time, have the.

00:08:27.900 –> 00:08:28.980
Jason Mefford: I feel.

00:08:30.600 –> 00:08:30.990
Jason Mefford: Right.

00:08:32.400 –> 00:08:49.080
Jason Mefford: Excuse me versus light so maybe let’s exactly if we can talk a little bit about the energy because also you know you think about like the energy spectrums you know fear depression down at the bottom, you know well being happiness joy at the top.

00:08:50.850 –> 00:09:09.210
Jason Mefford: That is there there’s there seems to be a connection to write that when people are using words like heavy they’re in emotions that are down in those lower frequency energy areas when they feel like they’re up at the top, as well.

00:09:09.210 –> 00:09:09.930
Jason Mefford: Right so.

00:09:10.350 –> 00:09:20.790
Jason Mefford: So i’m guessing you have a lot of people that come to you they’re heavy they say things like that So how do you how do you help them kind of move move back up.

00:09:20.970 –> 00:09:21.720
Karen Stultz: Because that’s what we’re.

00:09:21.900 –> 00:09:24.030
Jason Mefford: What you’re really kind of move it up here right.

00:09:25.830 –> 00:09:39.360
Karen Stultz: Exactly exactly the first thing I have a program that actually my My big program is awesome life success and awesome is an acronym with the a being.

00:09:40.020 –> 00:09:41.010
For awareness.

00:09:42.480 –> 00:09:46.020
Karen Stultz: So becoming more aware of us, and how we’re feeling.

00:09:47.040 –> 00:09:49.410
Karen Stultz: And like you say those lower.

00:09:50.820 –> 00:10:01.650
Karen Stultz: scale emotions, the guilt, the fear depression and i’m not a psychologist Thank you awesome i’m not there, but.

00:10:02.820 –> 00:10:04.410
Karen Stultz: And that’s why what I do.

00:10:06.030 –> 00:10:07.110
Karen Stultz: is not going to hurt you.

00:10:09.060 –> 00:10:18.990
Karen Stultz: And miss will try it right so anyway um I asked them to become a very aware and notice, if you were holding.

00:10:20.160 –> 00:10:29.250
Karen Stultz: your hands out and your left hand was the way you’re feeling now and the right hand is the way you want it to feel.

00:10:30.690 –> 00:10:33.390
Karen Stultz: Instead, what would that be like.

00:10:35.580 –> 00:10:44.700
Karen Stultz: And whenever you have an issue that you golly I just I just don’t know what to do, I just don’t.

00:10:46.680 –> 00:10:47.640
i’m not sure.

00:10:49.050 –> 00:10:55.470
Karen Stultz: If you just sit back and take a moment and say to yourself, which feels lighter.

00:11:00.000 –> 00:11:14.700
Karen Stultz: And, and whatever the answer is, is there is no right or wrong, it is absolutely fine just be aware of it, acknowledge it take it and be responsible for it.

00:11:15.960 –> 00:11:31.650
Karen Stultz: And I can’t tell you how many times I have sat down on my couch saying I should go upstairs and go to my office and I should be doing this, but i’m also very aware that if I am in that I should I need to I have to mode.

00:11:33.330 –> 00:11:36.090
Karen Stultz: i’m going to do a crappy escaping a bad job.

00:11:37.920 –> 00:11:39.360
Karen Stultz: i’m going to do a horrible job.

00:11:42.180 –> 00:11:50.970
kathygruver: I love it and it’s so funny I traveled recently it was so nice to be in an airport I forgot what a microcosm of craziness being in an airport.

00:11:50.970 –> 00:11:51.150

00:11:52.950 –> 00:12:01.290
kathygruver: Three exceptional examples of reactivity of entitlement of judgment of just nastiness and I just kind of got to sit back and go.

00:12:01.710 –> 00:12:12.930
kathygruver: hmm I got to the airport I love to read on planes that’s the time I have my alone time I brought my book, but stopped into the store and I was called to this book The greatest secret.

00:12:13.140 –> 00:12:13.980
kathygruver: So it’s a.

00:12:14.130 –> 00:12:26.580
kathygruver: follow up book to the secret now I didn’t like the secret, because it was all material I want this car with this House, I want this girl I want this, you know, it was very material based, which is not why we manifest things it helps.

00:12:26.910 –> 00:12:37.800
kathygruver: Not saying we shouldn’t have material things often though we want more spiritual development, so I bought this book kind of almost but grudgingly, but kept calling to me, so I start reading it it’s all about awareness.

00:12:38.190 –> 00:12:38.970
kathygruver: it’s all about.

00:12:39.120 –> 00:12:49.500
kathygruver: 1% of awareness and i’m sure I use the word awareness, all the time what’s hilarious, though, is in the past five days since I picked up this book every interview i’ve done has been about.

00:12:49.500 –> 00:12:52.620
kathygruver: Awareness every client conversation i’m having is about awareness.

00:12:53.850 –> 00:12:54.240
kathygruver: There are no.

00:12:54.360 –> 00:12:55.710
Jason Mefford: Day it’s about awareness.

00:12:58.770 –> 00:13:01.290
Karen Stultz: and awareness, you know.

00:13:01.440 –> 00:13:06.060
kathygruver: it’s true and and I just literally got off a call about my new book on communication.

00:13:06.390 –> 00:13:15.420
kathygruver: And they said, you know, one of the keys, what are the keys of communications, you have to know what you want, you have to be aware of what you want, how to communicate that, because if you don’t know what you want.

00:13:15.660 –> 00:13:26.100
kathygruver: you’re not gonna be able to get it you don’t get into an uber and say take me somewhere and then be mad that you didn’t get to where you want it to go, you have to know your destination and then trust that the uber driver.

00:13:26.520 –> 00:13:31.590
kathygruver: The universe, is going to get you there, so I love that you start with awareness that is just the key to everything.

00:13:32.400 –> 00:13:39.210
Karen Stultz: is absolutely the key the other part of that is action inspired action.

00:13:40.290 –> 00:13:52.680
Karen Stultz: yeah so like you say you get into your uber and take me somewhere that doesn’t help but alright, so I know I want to go to the west coast, I live here in maine I want to go to the west coast.

00:13:54.360 –> 00:14:04.470
Karen Stultz: But without a plan without the right action you’re not going to get there, or maybe you will but it’s going to take you a whole lot longer a whole lot longer yeah.

00:14:06.150 –> 00:14:06.420
kathygruver: yeah.

00:14:06.450 –> 00:14:10.350
kathygruver: that’s true if you don’t have a map and you hope you pick the freeway that goes West.

00:14:13.260 –> 00:14:17.790
Karen Stultz: And you find out no wait a minute i’m on 91 going South yeah.

00:14:21.300 –> 00:14:24.780
Jason Mefford: And I love that question that you asked to which feels lighter.

00:14:24.810 –> 00:14:25.410
kathygruver: I love that.

00:14:25.980 –> 00:14:31.800
Jason Mefford: right because again i’ve noticed in one of the coaching programs that i’m going through as a student to.

00:14:32.850 –> 00:14:37.770
Jason Mefford: A lot of the coaches, one of the questions that they’ll ask is kind of similar to that which is just.

00:14:38.070 –> 00:14:45.870
Jason Mefford: it’s kind of a kick in the face when somebody does it right because we’re usually committed to struggle we’re committed to making things harder.

00:14:46.620 –> 00:14:52.230
Jason Mefford: than they have to be but it’s like, why are you making an issue out of something that’s not an issue.

00:14:52.800 –> 00:15:00.150
Jason Mefford: Or why can’t it be light and easy you know and and I think a lot of times that’s such a.

00:15:00.720 –> 00:15:11.550
Jason Mefford: Very simple question right, which again might go back to some of the nlp stuff right because that’s a lot about asking questions because the quality of our life is determined by the quality of questions right.

00:15:12.060 –> 00:15:24.270
Jason Mefford: that’s right an LP Okay, so you know, asking those questions and then going that way because again like you said if if you’re trying to get to the west coast there’s a lot of different ways, you can do it.

00:15:24.420 –> 00:15:27.150
Jason Mefford: You can just walk out your door you’re walking.

00:15:27.750 –> 00:15:28.290
Karen Stultz: Turn right.

00:15:28.440 –> 00:15:32.010
Jason Mefford: And 3000 miles is gonna take you a long time right.

00:15:32.730 –> 00:15:35.820
Jason Mefford: Well it’s like you put you put the address and your phone and you forget that it’s on.

00:15:35.820 –> 00:15:36.240

00:15:39.240 –> 00:15:40.050
kathygruver: downtown.

00:15:44.010 –> 00:15:45.780
Karen Stultz: Wait a minute 37 days.

00:15:51.060 –> 00:15:52.650
Jason Mefford: Right, so you can you can go.

00:15:53.910 –> 00:15:55.560
Jason Mefford: Here we go and it’s unscripted to so.

00:15:57.090 –> 00:15:58.530
Jason Mefford: Much of my throat.

00:15:59.670 –> 00:16:09.660
Jason Mefford: So you can choose to do that, you can drive, you can go get on an airplane there’s different options, you have right as well and which one is easiest for you.

00:16:10.080 –> 00:16:11.400
kathygruver: Well, and we’re on the west coast.

00:16:13.320 –> 00:16:22.320
kathygruver: You want to go portland go from portland portland Oregon you know is or poor performance I click on the coast, but you know you got to Oregon you got Washington and California, Mexico, where do you want to go.

00:16:23.040 –> 00:16:32.790
kathygruver: And that’s why I love the specificity of it, too, and when we’ve talked with people like Victoria, who came on and did law manifest you know law of attraction manifestations of it is about that specificity.

00:16:33.120 –> 00:16:35.580
kathygruver: And I remember affirming years ago when I was an actor.

00:16:36.150 –> 00:16:44.160
kathygruver: And i’ve told the story before you know I want to be a working actor, I want to be working act i’m a working actor and I realized, oh no i’m already a working actor, I want to be a working actor.

00:16:44.370 –> 00:16:52.680
kathygruver: So I started doing that affirmation, I am a paid working actor and then I got a gig that paid like four bucks an hour little more specific yeah need to be a little more specific, you know.

00:16:52.680 –> 00:17:03.420
kathygruver: And do my affirmations at night with my mental bank and stuff like that I have this many clients, if this much money and I weigh this much pounds that I will you know it’s like be specific, with what you want.

00:17:03.510 –> 00:17:04.800
kathygruver: And what feels better.

00:17:05.550 –> 00:17:09.930
kathygruver: I love that you do, that people have done the you know leaning forward leaning back when you say something.

00:17:09.960 –> 00:17:11.700
kathygruver: sort of yeah.

00:17:12.000 –> 00:17:12.600
Karen Stultz: But I like.

00:17:12.660 –> 00:17:17.400
kathygruver: muscle testing love the what feels lighter that’s i’ve never heard that before the so great yeah.

00:17:17.490 –> 00:17:28.740
Karen Stultz: So yeah and I, and I do I love that it is all about awareness again isn’t it and what happens if they don’t know where they’re going, are they they.

00:17:29.610 –> 00:17:44.100
Karen Stultz: are having a real challenge oftentimes it’s because they are a little afraid to actually look at something because hey you know what I I am stuck here and it can’t be easy.

00:17:45.270 –> 00:17:48.330
Karen Stultz: Because i’m not worth anything if it’s easy.

00:17:49.710 –> 00:17:54.090
Karen Stultz: And it’s like and that’s getting into psychology which I am not but.

00:17:56.490 –> 00:18:00.570
Karen Stultz: You know why not like you say what if it was what if it was easy.

00:18:00.750 –> 00:18:01.260
Karen Stultz: Okay, so.

00:18:01.770 –> 00:18:11.040
Jason Mefford: It was simple and you’re bringing up something so Kathy was just talking about the awareness keeps hitting her in the face right so you’ve hit on one that’s been hitting me in the face, which.

00:18:11.070 –> 00:18:12.480
Jason Mefford: goes back to self worth.

00:18:13.530 –> 00:18:25.620
Jason Mefford: Which which is you know again that how much of us being held back is really because of some of these unconscious blocks.

00:18:26.040 –> 00:18:29.700
Jason Mefford: That we have related into self worth and we all have these.

00:18:29.760 –> 00:18:31.530
Jason Mefford: Right, I mean everybody who.

00:18:32.220 –> 00:18:42.780
Jason Mefford: We think is is is really struggling with this as well and and how actually just focusing on something even as simple as like you said, being aware.

00:18:43.260 –> 00:18:52.560
Jason Mefford: And something like self love self care actually you know really having a sense of self worth and we are worthy.

00:18:53.220 –> 00:18:59.790
Jason Mefford: of having those things manifest because, again, as I keep getting hit in the head with the two before on this so it’s like.

00:19:00.180 –> 00:19:12.420
Jason Mefford: If things aren’t aren’t working out the way you want that’s probably one of the biggest areas to work with so i’m interested, you know and your clients is that kind of pop up as a common theme with them, usually.

00:19:14.280 –> 00:19:27.090
Karen Stultz: Absolutely, and it took me a long time to realize that I had that same issue as well, so it, I think, like you say everybody does in some level.

00:19:27.690 –> 00:19:42.390
Karen Stultz: And the more you stretch out that old programming comes back and says oh wait a minute all right, we let you stretch to this point, but maybe we’re not sure about letting you stretch to that point.

00:19:43.740 –> 00:19:55.200
Karen Stultz: So what I love to do is is the opposite in eft I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of that I use that in my hgtv.

00:19:56.280 –> 00:19:57.570
Karen Stultz: Which is basically.

00:19:59.070 –> 00:20:05.640
Karen Stultz: The tapping you tap on energy meridians around your your face and and head and.

00:20:07.110 –> 00:20:09.150
Karen Stultz: With each tab you say something.

00:20:10.740 –> 00:20:11.280

00:20:13.230 –> 00:20:15.450
Karen Stultz: i’m not worthy enough to have this.

00:20:16.680 –> 00:20:30.060
Karen Stultz: Sure, I am no i’m not I am totally worthy no i’m not yes, I am I am totally worthy no i’m not yes, I am yes, I am no i’m not no i’m not.

00:20:30.870 –> 00:20:45.120
Karen Stultz: And then my part that i’ve added is taking your palm of one hand putting it on the inside of the rest of the other hand, taking a deep breath in release and saying peace.

00:20:46.950 –> 00:20:53.220
Karen Stultz: And just saying it helps it helps you get centered and then notice again getting back to awareness.

00:20:54.540 –> 00:20:55.350
Karen Stultz: What came up.

00:20:56.490 –> 00:21:01.350
Karen Stultz: Did you feel like you were not telling the truth when you said you were not worthy.

00:21:04.650 –> 00:21:05.070
Karen Stultz: Maybe.

00:21:06.450 –> 00:21:10.920
Karen Stultz: And if not, what else came up why aren’t you worried they that’s tap on that.

00:21:11.790 –> 00:21:13.080
that’s work on now.

00:21:14.340 –> 00:21:21.900
Jason Mefford: yeah i’ve never heard the opposite, you know i’ve always heard of eft as far as you know, being like the positive kind of affirmations that you’re saying.

00:21:22.500 –> 00:21:40.830
Jason Mefford: But it’s it’s interesting to go through that because you’re effectively reprogramming yourself right by by bringing out those negative thoughts or feelings that we’re having and then convincing yourself or showing yourself, no, I actually am worthy.

00:21:41.160 –> 00:21:52.410
Karen Stultz: Right huh uh huh or or even finding a way to if it’s too, what if it’s too too much to handle to be able to just say okay.

00:21:54.240 –> 00:21:58.620
Karen Stultz: Maybe i’m not worthy of it, right now, but I know I am worthy.

00:21:59.700 –> 00:22:11.520
Karen Stultz: So I expect that I will be able to do it if I do this one little thing this one little thing will make me feel a whole lot better i’ll feel lighter I can follow through a little bit better.

00:22:12.690 –> 00:22:16.560
Karen Stultz: Yes, I can do this, it gives you hope let’s hope is.

00:22:16.890 –> 00:22:17.760
kathygruver: Also, great.

00:22:19.230 –> 00:22:26.070
kathygruver: Absolutely, and one of the questions I like to ask if it because, again, the self worth and comes up in almost every single one of my coaching clients.

00:22:26.280 –> 00:22:29.370
kathygruver: Whether it’s fear of failure, fear of success, are you worth.

00:22:29.370 –> 00:22:36.690
kathygruver: That thing that you want, and so they have that voice that says they’re not worthy and I always ask is that your voice, or is it someone else’s voice.

00:22:36.900 –> 00:22:38.700
Karen Stultz: Oh it’s my mom like that.

00:22:39.240 –> 00:22:40.680
kathygruver: And then we get like.

00:22:41.160 –> 00:22:42.390
Karen Stultz: You know it’s it’s yeah.

00:22:42.780 –> 00:22:49.980
kathygruver: I love that don’t be too big, why are you showing off nobody cares what you just did that you know social media is ruined that.

00:22:50.760 –> 00:22:55.080
kathygruver: because everyone has a platform now, and they can be as big as they want or as big as they want to make up.

00:22:55.950 –> 00:23:03.750
kathygruver: But you know it is that’s that what are we telling ourselves and what are these people throughout our lives telling us so when you have a client who.

00:23:04.080 –> 00:23:07.920
kathygruver: You know, and you just sort of touched on it, you know, has that message from their past.

00:23:08.190 –> 00:23:19.230
kathygruver: As well as the tapping and everything do any of the other techniques you use help to sort of shut that that negative mom voice out or that and that was nasty or whatever it is, you have any other techniques that you like.

00:23:21.030 –> 00:23:25.110
Karen Stultz: yeah well indeed being able to do a little bit of the nlp.

00:23:26.430 –> 00:23:31.920
Karen Stultz: And and doing a little bit of timeline and and going back and say okay.

00:23:33.480 –> 00:23:36.060
Karen Stultz: Is this yours is it somebody else’s.

00:23:37.410 –> 00:23:39.690
Karen Stultz: How about we just get rid of that feeling all together.

00:23:40.920 –> 00:23:49.170
Karen Stultz: let’s just get rid of that feeling, all together, because bottom line, unless you have that feeling inside of you, you wouldn’t even know that you had an issue.

00:23:50.460 –> 00:23:50.730

00:23:52.350 –> 00:23:53.610
Jason Mefford: Somewhere coming inside.

00:23:55.050 –> 00:24:04.170
Jason Mefford: yeah and doing things like like like a timeline exercise like that you know as i’ve gone through and done some of those before it’s like you know you come out of it it’s like holy shit right.

00:24:04.740 –> 00:24:15.270
Jason Mefford: That that voice in my head is me that was my brother, right now, I remember you know being five years old and hearing this or being being disappointed.

00:24:15.330 –> 00:24:32.130
Jason Mefford: Because of a particular situation like i’m not five anymore, so why do I keep thinking that’s real and that’s still going on right, and so you can kind of push and get that finally out of your life are cleared by seeing it from this different perspective.

00:24:34.110 –> 00:24:36.780
Karen Stultz: And I kind of like looking at it as.

00:24:38.070 –> 00:24:45.450
Karen Stultz: Once you’re aware of it, you can make a conscious decision to make that change as opposed to.

00:24:45.840 –> 00:24:57.540
Karen Stultz: pushing it away because pushing it away is kind of resistance and once that resistance comes in your subconscious, as you all know, is going to say what we’re not gonna let you were stopping you right here.

00:24:58.890 –> 00:25:15.660
Karen Stultz: So being able to you know just really am one of the little things just on the on the tapping again right right in front of your ear I don’t I have my thing there, but right in front of the top of the year, low.

00:25:17.070 –> 00:25:19.890
Karen Stultz: Right at the top of the year there’s a little soft spot there.

00:25:21.390 –> 00:25:23.760
Karen Stultz: And that is where our trauma.

00:25:24.990 –> 00:25:28.080
Karen Stultz: All of those things, create trauma in us.

00:25:28.500 –> 00:25:33.630
Karen Stultz: And that’s where they’re kind of held so being able to just massage that.

00:25:33.660 –> 00:25:36.870
Karen Stultz: Along with the eye, so you know, putting your handling.

00:25:37.920 –> 00:25:41.490
Karen Stultz: All four fingers on the side of the eye and.

00:25:41.640 –> 00:25:47.340
Karen Stultz: Right at the Oscars massaging that, as you were thinking about that and saying i’m making a decision.

00:25:47.670 –> 00:25:48.930
Karen Stultz: I can let that go now that.

00:25:50.730 –> 00:25:52.680
Karen Stultz: I don’t need to carry my mother’s stuff.

00:25:56.580 –> 00:26:00.540
kathygruver: yeah oh that’s great that’s so awesome and of course we’re almost out of time.

00:26:01.320 –> 00:26:01.560

00:26:03.540 –> 00:26:16.140
kathygruver: it’s been so fun having you so any any final thoughts any any tip the tapping is awesome any other tips that you can give that someone can do as soon as we get off this show is they can just make it a small change in their lives today.

00:26:18.780 –> 00:26:24.480
Karen Stultz: sit back and notice that heavy and light if it is something that you really.

00:26:26.010 –> 00:26:26.850
Karen Stultz: want to do.

00:26:28.200 –> 00:26:30.390
Karen Stultz: And you’re not doing it procrastination.

00:26:32.220 –> 00:26:44.220
Karen Stultz: And, rather than analyzing Why am I not doing this just notice if I did this would it feel better or not and and notice that heavy and light and I actually put my hands up there.

00:26:45.330 –> 00:26:45.600
kathygruver: yeah.

00:26:45.780 –> 00:26:49.350
Karen Stultz: And this is something and okay.

00:26:50.850 –> 00:26:57.300
Karen Stultz: I don’t being forgiving to yourself there’s no reason in the world that you have to do it.

00:27:00.900 –> 00:27:01.260
Karen Stultz: Though.

00:27:01.440 –> 00:27:01.770

00:27:02.940 –> 00:27:10.620
Jason Mefford: Allow in i’m guessing when you do this with clients to right because I see this, a lot of people I work with are very left brain analytical.

00:27:11.160 –> 00:27:12.930
Jason Mefford: And so they like to overcome everything.

00:27:13.080 –> 00:27:19.320
Jason Mefford: Right and and so when you’re doing an exercise like this again i’m guessing you want it to be.

00:27:19.800 –> 00:27:30.390
Jason Mefford: quicker intuitive kind of hits because you know again once you get to the seven or eight seconds now your consciousness is starting to come back in and you’re talking yourself out of.

00:27:31.020 –> 00:27:47.400
Jason Mefford: What you already know right so again as as people are doing this sit back notice if it’s heavy or light don’t sit there, and like Fred on it for a minute it’s like you’re gonna know pretty quick when you asked yourself that question I think too right.

00:27:49.020 –> 00:28:05.910
Karen Stultz: Absolutely absolutely and all it does take a little bit of willingness to be aware yeah willingness to make that that shift and recognizing that, if indeed.

00:28:07.140 –> 00:28:10.770
Karen Stultz: This is something that you truly would like to change.

00:28:12.570 –> 00:28:19.080
Karen Stultz: Millions of people have already made that change, including myself yeah so.

00:28:20.190 –> 00:28:23.610
Karen Stultz: It doesn’t mean that you have to make the same change and jump.

00:28:25.080 –> 00:28:26.580
Karen Stultz: Do it little step.

00:28:26.640 –> 00:28:34.530
kathygruver: By step by step, I think that we forget that you know i’ve had so many people say how do you write a whole book I don’t.

00:28:35.220 –> 00:28:48.720
kathygruver: you write word by word and then you have a paragraph and then you have a chapter and then you know I think we do when we making those big decisions of do I stay or go in my marriage do I say yes, this promotion or do I quit my job, do you know that seems like such a huge thing.

00:28:49.230 –> 00:28:53.910
kathygruver: And we forget that we can have these incremental changes and to trust the answer.

00:28:54.270 –> 00:28:59.370
kathygruver: Because I know i’ve had opportunities, where i’m like I should probably take that and then it falls through it i’m like oh my God.

00:28:59.610 –> 00:29:10.710
kathygruver: And I realized Oh, I actually didn’t want you know it’s the flip the coin thing and then, how do you feel about the result if you’re disappointed, then you’ve answered your question if you’re excited, then you answered your question, so I think it is about.

00:29:11.370 –> 00:29:16.110
kathygruver: Questioning sitting in that stillness and listening and then knowing you can make those changes incrementally.

00:29:18.060 –> 00:29:33.870
Karen Stultz: And also journaling journaling is so powerful so powerful I had a client, you know she’s been really struggling with her co worker and the situation and what do I do, what do I do what I.

00:29:34.740 –> 00:29:47.820
Karen Stultz: OK, so we did the eft we did a lot of other stuff and I said now what I want you to do is sit down and write all of the good things about having this person there and the negative things as well.

00:29:48.990 –> 00:30:02.730
Karen Stultz: and take a look at it and say, this is it noticing the emotions that are coming up, these are the good things, these are the not so good thing well guess what the next day, the very next day after that exercise the woman quit.

00:30:05.070 –> 00:30:07.290
Karen Stultz: quit her job she was out of the office.

00:30:07.530 –> 00:30:10.500
kathygruver: Not an issue hey I love it I love it.

00:30:10.950 –> 00:30:11.550
yeah so.

00:30:12.690 –> 00:30:13.110
Karen Stultz: that’s not.

00:30:14.610 –> 00:30:16.590
kathygruver: Easy yeah Karen this has been fabulous.

00:30:16.590 –> 00:30:19.710
kathygruver: Jason Jason any final thoughts before we get karen’s contact info.

00:30:20.160 –> 00:30:35.610
Jason Mefford: Well, I think, just as you said that you know with that client that did the journaling and then the next day, I mean it gets back to again, one of the common themes that i’ve heard over and over again, we already know the answers to our questions we just got to get out of our own way.

00:30:36.180 –> 00:30:37.860
Jason Mefford: Right and so doing things like.

00:30:38.460 –> 00:30:53.130
Jason Mefford: That sit back put your hands out ask yourself the question you know which feels lighter we already know we just have to be aware and accept, and I think you know what you said you know we have to be aware and then make a conscious decision right.

00:30:53.670 –> 00:31:03.540
Jason Mefford: So, again whether it’s that exercise whether it’s journaling we probably already know the answer we just have to use some of these techniques and then trust ourself.

00:31:04.230 –> 00:31:15.480
Jason Mefford: That that really is the right or the best decision, and you know the other thing is so many people are afraid and don’t do anything because they think oh my gosh once I make a decision, I can never make that decision again right.

00:31:15.900 –> 00:31:19.860
Jason Mefford: it’s like know when I was a kid I hated broccoli I still don’t like it.

00:31:20.250 –> 00:31:20.640
Jason Mefford: But i’ll.

00:31:20.700 –> 00:31:30.690
Jason Mefford: eat it now right heck in 10 years I might just love this stuff right, I have, I have the choice it’s my it’s my right.

00:31:31.170 –> 00:31:42.480
Jason Mefford: To make different choices at different points in my life so it’s that way for everybody, with everything just because you make a decision now doesn’t mean you can’t change it later right.

00:31:42.690 –> 00:31:50.610
Karen Stultz: Absolutely I love it well that’s that’s it exactly isn’t it yeah three months is is the time that I usually give people you know what.

00:31:52.020 –> 00:32:01.080
Karen Stultz: Are you feeling good about it right now let’s make it happen if, at the end of three months, you say you know what that may not be what I wanted, after all, I went to something now.

00:32:01.800 –> 00:32:06.180
Karen Stultz: Exactly, we can shift it but but give it some time get it some time yeah.

00:32:06.270 –> 00:32:10.200
