Tapping for Abundance: Unlock Your Creative Potential and Manifest Your Dreams

Hey there, creative soul! Are you ready to unlock your full potential and manifest the abundant life you’ve always dreamed of? Then it’s time to discover the magic of tapping for abundance. In this post, we’ll explore what tapping is, how it works, and how you can use it to supercharge your creativity and achieve your goals. Let’s dive in!

What is Tapping?

First things first: what exactly is tapping?

Tapping, also known as Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), is a powerful self-help tool that combines ancient Chinese acupressure with modern psychology. It involves gently tapping on specific meridian points on your body while focusing on a particular issue or emotion.

By doing so, you can release negative beliefs, reduce stress and anxiety, and create space for positive transformation. One of my favorite ways of tapping is tapping for creative abundance.

How does Tapping work?

So, how does tapping actually work?

When you tap on the meridian points while focusing on a specific issue, you send calming signals to your amygdala, the part of your brain that controls the stress response. This helps to reduce cortisol levels and promote a sense of relaxation and well-being.

At the same time, you use positive affirmations and visualizations to reframe your thoughts and beliefs around the issue, allowing you to shift your mindset from one of lack to one of abundance.

What can you do with Tapping?

The beauty of tapping is that it can be used for just about anything!

Whether you’re a writer struggling with creative blocks, an artist looking to manifest more opportunities, or simply someone who wants to cultivate a more abundant mindset, tapping can help. I especially love tapping for creative abundance because I find when you tap for creativity, wealth follows.

Here are just a few ways you can use tapping to unlock your creative potential:

  • Overcoming procrastination and perfectionism
  • Boosting confidence and self-belief
  • Releasing limiting beliefs around money and success
  • Manifesting new clients, projects, or creative collaborations
  • Enhancing focus and productivity
  • Healing physical symptoms (like Melanie’s migraines)
  • Manifesting abundance and success
  • Reducing stress and anxiety around deadlines or creative challenges

Manifesting Creative Abundance with Tapping

One of the most powerful ways to use tapping is to manifest more creativity and success in your life. By focusing on your big vision and tapping on any limiting beliefs or blocks that come up, you can create a clear path to your goals and attract opportunities that align with your deepest desires.

For example, let’s say you’re a writer who dreams of publishing a best-selling novel.

You might start by tapping on any fears or doubts you have around your writing abilities, using affirmations like “I am a talented and creative writer” or “I trust in my unique voice and message.”

As you tap, you can visualize yourself holding your published book in your hands, feeling the joy and pride of your accomplishment. With consistent practice, you’ll start to notice synchronicities and opportunities showing up in your life, guiding you closer to your dream.

The Prosperity Party: Tapping for Manifesting (+ Tapping for Creative Abundance!)

Something Melanie offers that I’ve tried out myself (and loved!) is her annual Prosperity Party, a 5-day challenge where participants set an intention to manifest a minimum of 500 pounds (or dollars/euros). It incorporates tapping, gratitude, prayer, decluttering, and a supportive community with a collective money manifesting intention.

Some of the incredible manifestations that have come out of the Prosperity Party include:

  • An actor landing a part in Grey’s Anatomy and winning a settlement, totaling $65,000 manifested in one week
  • A man receiving an idea that led to securing a £1 million in funding for a project
  • A woman finding an old bank account with £1500 in it
  • Countless stories of tax rebates, refunds, new clients, and unexpected windfalls
  • And me manifesting ~$450!

Teaching an Abundance Mindset

Of course, manifesting abundance isn’t just about tapping — it’s also about cultivating a mindset of prosperity and possibility. By teaching yourself (and even your kids) to focus on gratitude, abundance, and positive expectation, you’ll create a powerful foundation for attracting more of what you want in life.

Some simple abundance mindset tips include:

  • Keeping a gratitude journal and focusing on the blessings in your life
  • Surrounding yourself with positive, supportive people who believe in your dreams
  • Visualizing your goals and desires as if they’ve already happened
  • Celebrating your successes and milestones, no matter how small
  • Letting go of comparisons and trusting in your own unique journey

Tapping for Creative Abundance in Your Writing Life

Whether you’re a writer working on your book, an entrepreneur growing your business, or anyone with big dreams and creative goals, tapping for creative abundance can be a valuable tool for manifesting the prosperity and success you desire.

By getting clear on your vision, believing in yourself, and shifting your mindset, you open yourself up to abundant possibilities and opportunities.

As Melanie wisely notes, life is a challenging journey full of ups and downs, loss and heartbreak, but having tools like tapping can help make navigating it easier. Money and luck are not finite resources available to only a select few — we all have access to an infinite number of channels of abundance. It’s up to us to claim them.

My Top 3 Takeaways for this Conversation

The 3 things I found most insightful in this conversation with Melanie were:

  • Tapping is a powerful tool that can help with physical issues, anxiety, and manifesting abundance. It works by rewiring our brains and shifting our thought patterns to focus on what we want rather than what we don’t want.
  • Life is a challenging journey with ups and downs, but having mindset tools like tapping can make navigating those challenges much easier. It’s important to pay attention to our thoughts and feelings throughout the day, and if we find ourselves feeling negative emotions, we can use tapping to shift our focus to what we want instead.
  • Money is available to us from many different channels, not just our main job or source of income. By tapping into these channels of abundance both physically and emotionally, we open ourselves up to unexpected opportunities and ways of creating wealth in our lives. Teaching this mindset to our children can help them develop a lucky, abundant approach to life from an early age.
