Even simple phrases as part of the setup statement can help. Here are some of my favorites:
Even though________, I choose to be open and receptive to all possibilities.
Even though I’m not sure what will happen, I choose to be receptive to abundance and love.
Even though it seems impossible, I choose to be open to the positive outcomes that are equally available to me.
Even though it doesn’t look good right now, I am open and receptive to good things happening in surprising ways.
Even though I can’t see it right now, I am open and receptive to finding a new way of thinking about this situation.
Here’s what happened with a client of mine. After tapping for receptivity, she received the following email from a friend.
I am buying a new truck, and I wonder if you might like to have my car.
Well, I do need a car, but it depends on the cost.
Well for you M., 50 cents!
The irony is not lost on my client that as soon as she started focusing on receptivity, what she needed fell into her lap.
Hint: The key is to stay open, and unattached to the outcome.
In other words, have fun with it!
