If there is any area of your life or business that you have tried to change/improve without success, then you have conflicting beliefs that need to be identified and reconciled within your consciousness.
It is important to identify the beliefs that you bump up against (blind spots which you have practiced yourself into ignoring/repressing) as you attempt to change/improve certain areas of your life.
Until you resolve the inner conflict these ‘beliefs’ create, you cannot create different/improved circumstances in your life.
To some degree we can, and do, naturally shift old defeating beliefs. However, when you consistently try to change something in your life – unsuccessfully – it can be beneficial to enlist the help of an outside source. Preferably someone who is highly attuned to identifying beliefs and patterns of behavior, and can offer guidance as to how to shift them in positive life enhancing ways.
You don’t need a healer, coach or therapist… nor do you need a modality, religion or outside force to change you. The real power is always within you no matter what path you take in life. That being said, we often will manifest people, circumstances or events that help us facilitate changes that we’ve clearly identified we want to make.
The key to recognizing what ‘external solution’ will help you, is to feel for a resonance or alignment with the specific solution. If it feels good – for instance you feel relief when you contemplate moving forward with a healer, coach or modality – then you know the experience will bring you benefit. Always feel for the alignment.
A Strategy for Identifying Conflicting Beliefs:
Sit down in a quiet area with paper and a pen.
Take several deep cleansing breaths to center yourself and prepare your mind for this process.
Write down on the paper your intention, in this case, you may write something like – What do I believe or expect with regard to ____________? (fill in the blank with the subject you are working through).
Now write down everything you think, feel, believe, and/or expect. Let it flow naturally. Some of it may seem empowering; over the years you have accumulated many positive beliefs about this subject. Other statements you write may seem very negative. It is common for you to see patterns in your current life, as well as expectations about yourself/your future that correlate to childhood feelings/experiences. During this part of the process (assuming you are being honest with yourself about all of your thoughts and feelings) you will begin to see with more clarity what beliefs are still active within your consciousness.
When you feel a sense of completion, stop writing. Note: It is okay to stop and reflect, then resume writing until you feel complete.
As you take time to reflect on what you’ve written, be aware of metaphors that enter your mind. For example, your past limiting beliefs felt like you were swallowed up within a swamp – you’ve been functioning with your head barely above the filthy water. But now you can see yourself emerging from the murky muddy swamp into the clean clear valley. You have been cleansed of the past stuck-ness and now feel light and free.
The metaphor is a powerful part of transformation. Metaphors and symbolism are frequently used in rituals and mindset work because of the effect they have on our consciousness. That being said, if you do not immediately resonate with a metaphor, it is okay. You may process the shift in a slightly different way at an appropriate time. Some people will experience the reconciliation of beliefs during the dream state.
This is one of many processes you can use to identify and shift old beliefs which no longer serve you on your life path. If you are interested in individualized support, you are welcome to schedule a complimentary phone consultation to discuss my private one-to-one services.
