Hi this is Joan and this is episode 47 of The Prosperity Show. Thanks for tuning in. Today we're going to talk about something I call the power word technique. But before we get to that, our main site is prosperityplace.com where you can find lots of free information to help you improve your relationship with money and yourself. You can also find information about my book, "Build your Money Muscles - Simple Exercises for Improving your Relationship with Money."

So what you tell it is that any time that you want to release some problems, discomfort, old beliefs, you're going to use this word that you create as a trigger and it will help in the clearing process. You don't even have to actually believe that it's going to work, but it does. And when I was first introduced to it, I had been doing a lot of emotional clearing and saw how effective both EFT and BSFF could be and one of the reasons I liked the BSFF, I know this is a lot of letters, was because you could do it in a very relaxed and meditative state. And the book BSFF has a very detailed account of how to create what we call the statements that are going to be treated. And it's a wonderful manual and it's especially recommended for anyone who is a psychologist or works with...
