Do you often feel held back or STUCK, like Progress is always just out of reach?
Consider this: those old stories you keep telling yourself – your LIMITING BELIEFS – Don’t. Even. Exist… Because a new belief, a new Reality, is only one thought away.
Okay, so does this sound familiar? If only I would have grown up in a household where money was flowing effortlessly and abundantly, then I’d have more money today. Or how about this one? You know if I just would have been treated with a little more love and a little more kindness, my entire life would be different today. You know these are common examples of what some people call a limiting belief. I didn’t get what I needed, and that’s why my life is the way that it is today. Those gosh darn limiting beliefs because of that thing that happened.
You know, I need to get rid of those limiting beliefs. I need to dig out those limiting beliefs and get rid of ’em so I can then have the life that I’ve dreamed of. And there’s an entire industry that’s built up around exercising those demons and getting rid of the stuff you don’t want. But what if there’s an easier way? What if you don’t have to go through all the struggle and the suffering and the pain of getting rid of something that’s actually not even real? What is a belief? A belief is simply a thought. That you’ve kept thinking. That’s all a belief is.
It’s a single thought that’s been repeated enough times to generate some of its own momentum. So it kind of operates on auto pilot. But you don’t need to delete the program, that’s not how it works. You’re only one thought away from feeling a very subtle, very powerful shift in your own energy, in your own feelings. And as you begin to shift your thoughts one thought at a time, you begin to give yourself new evidence, you begin to give yourself a new belief, a new experience. So there’s really no need to curse your past or to get rid of these limiting beliefs, there are no such things as limiting beliefs. There are simply beliefs that have served you up until now. So instead of looking backwards and trying to figure out why it happened that way, how about let’s just get present? Those things served you up until now.
So right now, what do you want? Right now, where do you want to be? Give your attention to that. And perhaps you can practice a little strategic ignorance, and when you feel those old energies coming back, you can say nope, not going there.
There’s nothing there for me anymore. And you will find, minute by minute, hour by hour, you’ll find day by day, that these new thoughts take on a whole life of their own. And next thing you know, you’ve got a whole new set of beliefs.
