(as you understand Him)
Powerful tools for recovery.
Hello, and welcome to Tapping Into God! What you will find here is an exciting integration of tools designed to help people discover a "happy and joyous freedom" that they might otherwise never have known.
The Twelve Steps form a proven program that has effectively helped millions of people struggling with a variety of addictions since Alcoholics Anonymous began in the Thirties. Energy therapies - in this case Emotional Freedom Techniques™ (EFT) - have also effectively helped people to recover from cravings and numerous other limiting issues. Combined, they can powerfully clear the way to a joyous freedom from addictions or any other limiting behaviors, beliefs or emotions. The Twelve Steps form the outline for progressive recovery, and EFT (or whichever modality you prefer) provides a tool for overcoming obstacles such as fear, shame and guilt that might hamper the process, as well as a means of healing the core issues at the root of the addiction. The integration of these tools will provide you with an effective framework for recovery from any issue, whether an acknowledged "addiction" or not.
The Promises of the Twelve Steps are these:
We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.
We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.
We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace.
No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others.
That feeling of uselessness and self-pity will disappear.
We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows.
Self-seeking will slip away.
Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change.
Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us.
We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us.
We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
If this sounds like something you want, then we are here to support you. Unfortunately, usually the only people who seek the 12 Steps are those who have been hit with a 2x4. But there is always hope that folks might receive the gifts of this program without that 2x4 being necessary.
Basically, these are tools that can help you achieve:
The serenity to accept the things you cannot change,
The courage to change the things you can,
And access to greater wisdom to know the difference.
