What Was I Thinking???
“You don’t become what you want, you become what you believe.”
– Oprah Winfrey –
Your subconscious mind accepts as truth, the statements you tell yourself, it doesn’t care whether those statements are negative or positive.
So why would you choose to continually tell yourself that you are not good enough? Not smart enough? Not pretty enough? Or that you don’t deserve to be happy? Have you ever heard yourself saying any of these statements in your head? How about “I’m so stupid, I’m not worthy, nobody loves me, I can’t do this.” Any one of these statements can stop you from achieving what you want in life and the good news is you don’t have to listen to them anymore! First of all none of the statements above are true.
I can hear some of you saying “they are for me” and “they are not my choice!” to that, I say again, NONE OF THESE STATEMENTS ARE TRUE. For anyone. These words are a perspective, yours or someone else’s and your subconscious mind hears these words as the truth. These negative statements are bogus and they were added to your life program that resides in your subconscious mind. At some point in your life or before (another conversation), these programmed statements, and many others were saved in your subconscious mind files causing you to operate in life as if they are true. In other words, these are limiting belief statements embedded in your subconscious mind and they are limiting your life potential. You don’t have to live with these words anymore and you can reform these statements from negative into positive ones and change the outcome of your life. Not only have other people done this successfully for themselves, but more people, like you, are also discovering that they can too.
Consider the alternative statements “I am good at what I do”, “I have all the knowledge I need” “I am beautiful, inside and out”, “I am worthy of the best that love and life have to offer” These statements are true for people who believe these words, whole-heartedly. They are the people who appear to be insanely happy all the time! You know ‘those’ people, the ones who appear to be over the top happy, living life to it’s fullest, always wearing a perma-grin on their lips. I used to think “they can’t be that happy all the time”! Well, a matter a fact, yes they can and you can be as well! In fact, our natural way of being, as a human, is to be happy, content, joyful, grateful, compassionate, caring, social, nurturing, happy, happy, happy! It’s time to be the human being you were meant to be!
So why aren’t we happy?
There is a myriad of reasons why we are not happy and they all come back to what we believe. What we believe about ourselves, our life and the world we live in. What we accept as the truth, either self-proclaimed or told to us by others and how we choose to define our very existence. We actually live in a world of anything is possible, nothing is real and all you have to do is choose how you want your human experience to be. Is that really possible? ABSOLUTELY! Is it easy? ABSOLUTELY NOT! If you are not living the life you want to be living and you are ready to change this, then it’s time to get to work! I am here to work through this with you, to take back your personal power and create your life as you wish it to be.
Let’s try a little experiment here to find out what you actually believe. I’d like you to read the quote below then hear the voice in your head.
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” ― Oprah Winfrey
What did you hear it say? Write down what you heard so we can refer back to it later. Did you say “that’s not true” or “I agree with this statement”? Or did anything else pop into your thoughts about it?
Now take a look at this image, what do you see?
Do you see the beauty of nature or emptiness? Did it stir emotion within you of excitement? Loneliness? Calm? Peacefulness? or nothing at all? Record your thoughts and emotions as they appear to you.
Your initial thoughts and feelings are clues to what you truly believe on a subconscious level and these thoughts and feelings may or may not be in alignment with what you consciously believe. If this is the case, this is where we begin to look for the limiting beliefs that are stopping you from living your life as it was meant to be lived. The first step to removing a limiting belief is to discover it’s existence, then, create a new (positive) statement that is meaningful to you and download it into your sub-conscious replacing the negative one that has stopped you in the past. There are a few techniques you can use to do this successfully and effectively and choosing one that works for you is the key. Over the years I have tried many with some being more effective than others.
