Book Review – Just Tell Me What I Want by Sara Kravitz

Sara Kravitz book

The right book, the right time!

This book examines the true way to “follow your bliss”.  With memorable quotes like: “The dark side is the place where our socialized being is judging who we really are and want to be.”; “What if everything you wanted was just on the other side of everything you are scared of?”; and “The dark side clearly exists.” Sara digs deep into why it is so important to accept all of who we are in order to find our true purpose of why we are here on the Earth at this most important time.

I believe there is a greater purpose as to why we are here and what is great about this book is, it guides you to ask the hard questions of yourself so you will be able to uncover what you really want out of your life, which is what you came here for in the first place. Forget about what you may think others expect you to do, find out what you really want deep inside.

She also tackles fear—check this quote out— “your fear is just the same thought, on repeat. Like, the same thing, over and over and over again. Sometimes there’s a variation, but mostly it’s the same thought on repeat. How boring is that? You’re better that that.” This book is so juicy! All the advice I needed to hear at this point in my life.

Sara gives the reader permission to find out what they don’t know they had all along. Now you have to read the book to find out what that is for you! The most important thing you will learn from this book is how to live life forward, one decision at a time, one action at a time, one moment at a time, and “how starting [your life purpose] shows you a lot more than endless planning.” Thank you Sara!

Why Hire An EFT Coach?

If EFT is such an effective self help tool that I can learn to do all by myself, why would anyone go to a coach?  Why spend the money ?

EFT is an amazing and effective self help tool and it is possible to get extraordinary change with even the most basic knowledge and little or no understanding of the ‘science’ and thinking behind it. However, there are times when EFT doesn’t seem to work, you just get nowhere or you may have opened up a floodgate of negative emotions and lost memories. This is where the EFT coach comes in, when you are stuck or overwhelmed.

Primarily, the EFT coach’s role is to be a facilitator for healing work to take place, to hold a safe space for the client to explore areas that their subconscious mind may not allow them to access on their own. In doing so, as the coach, I help individuals or couples to grow and heal their relationships. I help women and couples prepare for childbirth by shedding away fear and anxiety regarding their pregnancy, birth and parenting.

My role is also to keep the client focused – to be a kind but firm guide to their process – to gently help the “masters of distraction” focus and resolve their issues in a supportive and comfortable environment – to keep the client not just on track, but moving forward. A good EFT coach will be the detective, use language skills to creatively assist the client to unearth their core issues and beliefs – to question them in ways they wouldn’t think of doing for themselves. I believe that the creative language and questioning skills of the coach are invaluable in allowing the process to flow smoothly.

It is human nature not to “go there” if “there” is too uncomfortable, either consciously or subconsciously. Some of us are masters at distraction – those times when cleaning, laundry, work, caring for your partner and/or children or just hiding away in the cocoon of internet surfing or watching TV suddenly become of utmost importance and just have to be done. Anything to avoid the issues we know at some level we need to be working with/looking at. I know – I am quite an expert on this myself! We have all been there and done that!

As human beings we are use to suppressing our negative thoughts and emotions. We master our skill at ignoring negative emotions and plowing our way through life telling ourselves and others that everything is OK. The most usual response to “How are you?” is “Fine.” How often is that the truth? EFT is all about being in your truth and helping you release the negative emotions and thoughts that kind you from your end goal of love, joy and fulfillment.

When dealing with negative things, people often ignore what is really bothering them, but at some point the subconscious mind will draw our attention to it in some other way, whether through physical aches and pains, depression, anxiety or other emotional states. We might displace or project our negative feelings onto others, and this hurts our relationships. At some point the subconscious defenses leak – something happens and we are forced to confront our reality. This is where the EFT coach comes in – to create a strategy for the client, a path for them to take, to clarify and simplify their work and to support and guide them with it as necessary. With EFT we have ways of carefully resolving and changing the overall symptoms.  And we can often do this for ourselves – but getting started can seem overwhelming, if we can figure out where to get started.

As an EFT coach I am an emotional detective. By using my training and communication skills to question the individual or couple in ways they wouldn’t think of doing for themselves. The creative language and questioning skills of the coach are invaluable in allowing the process to flow smoothly and to assist the client to unearth their core issues and beliefs. EFT is a fast track to cognitive shifts and insights. Acknowledging these changes to ourselves can be difficult. Often we won’t notice them ourselves and it will take our family, friends or colleagues to point them out. A skilled coach will be able to bring these shifts into conscious awareness as they happen.

“Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there” ~ unknown 

That is how I see my role, supporting people as they move along their track, being a clear channel for the work to happen – being aware when they head off track and pulling them gently back, looking for those patterns, helping you examine these patterns and gain new insights and perspectives.

My Turning Point Story

Hello my name is Ilia Blandina CNM ARNP. I am an EFT and Matrix Reimprinting practitioner specializing in pregnancy and relationship coaching.  My goal is to help you to heal yourself from negative emotions that are keeping you from experiencing love and joy in your life. Here I am relaying my personal experience with EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and how it saved my life.

At the stroke of midnight welcoming the new year of 2011, I had a premonition and my first thought was “Welcome the year of Death”. Little did I know how prophetic that premonition would be. Little did I realize how 2011 would become an emotional “perfect storm,” and that EFT, something I hardly knew about as I stood there toasting the New Year would become the life raft I would need to survive that perfect storm.

Prior to the start of 2011 I had a lot of stress in my family, there was gravely ill parents, parenting stress raising 4 boys, and marital stress where my husband and I were just not getting along or communicating well. I made it a mission to make changes in my life. So I started studying energy healing and different forms of it online which led me to EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). I saw how varied the uses were, that you can use it for anything. A strong statement I know, but little did I know how handy the tool would become. In April of 2011 I attended the Level 1 & 2 certification courses offered by EFT Universe and shortly thereafter the storm began.

Several people died through the following months. Basically, one person per month starting on Mother’s Day through August, a total of 5 people, two family members, a colleague, a young adult (child of friends) and a teenager.  Where’s the oxygen? The amount of stress this generated amplified the poor communication patterns that had unknowingly been established with my husband for several years. Our relationship teetered on a breaking point.  I had thought I was in a happy marriage of 30 years but very quickly realized that we had not been happy for a very long time.  This was all so unexpected. Suddenly my whole psychic planet exploded and then my marriage almost exploded. It was the perfect storm at the perfect time with EFT perfectly in place to help us through it.

The stress of that year led to a crisis in my marriage and if it wasn’t for EFT we would not have survived it intact.  This was a very intense time in my life, without EFT I don’t know where I would be right now. My intention is that through my story I will be able to reach out and help others.

Bottom line, I would not have been able to survive it without using EFT. And today my marriage and relationship with my family is stronger than ever. Because we were able to clear the negative emotions from events that happened earlier in our lives we became happier and stronger as a couple and our communication with each other has become open and clear, without any judgments or fear. I have better control over my inner thoughts and emotions. It’s like I ran to the edge of the cliff but was able to stop myself from jumping off!

Even though it was a huge crisis, it was a crisis of perfection. All the pieces were in place so that there was a soft landing spot, as opposed to being all over the cement. I had discovered EFT in 2008 via a free download of the EFT Manual and had put it on the back burner at that time. When I had the intuitive sense that 2011 was going to be a challenging year I used it to prepare myself to meet the challenges. I found that not only was I able to meet them but I came out stronger and it enabled me to grow in tremendous ways. As individuals, and as a couple, we came out healthier and stronger than before we went in.

Before our marriage crisis we were not talking to each other and not connecting. We were functioning on auto pilot. But now on the other side of it life is great. We are communicating, connecting and generally feeling well despite the ongoing stressors outside of our relationship. Instead of overreacting to each other, we listen, respond, and connect. In an ideal world we all want to make it through the challenges in life. EFT was not just a coping mechanism; it was a mechanism for growth and thriving.

Everything turned around so well by using EFT and Matrix Reimprinting that when 2012 rang in my first thought was “Welcome the year of Hope”!

My services are designed to help women prepare for childbirth by releasing any negative emotions they may have before or during pregnancy towards conceiving, giving birth or after the birth. I also want to help couples meet and grow through the challenges in their relationship. Please feel free to contact me.
