“You begin to fly when you let go of self-limiting beliefs and allow your mind and aspirations to rise to greater heights.”
How do you change a limiting BELIEF?
Watch this super easy to understand video and below you have the text version.
You can change a belief by reading a book or attending an event or working with a coach. And, after some time, you will definitely have a BREAKTHROUGH. Even better said, a new connection is created in your brain.
Some believe that is enough. But is it?
The truth is that you are just getting started. Let me explain. In order to experience real, long-lasting change, you need to put in the work. Having a breakthrough is not enough nor does it equal long-lasting change. It’s only the FIRST step!
I remember that I once read something Louise Hay said:
“If you accept a limiting belief, then it will become a truth for you”.
I like to compare it with taking a different road home. If you take the same road home for ten years, you don’t think about it while driving, do you? It becomes your truth.
But if you were to take a different one, you will have to make an EFFORT, right? And not just the first time, but maybe a couple of times (possibly even hundred of times!), until you don’t have to consciously THINK which way you should take to get home. It becomes your second nature. And if you take this NEW road enough times, you will start to forget the OLD one.
“The key to optimum health is to upgrade these unconscious maps and limiting beliefs that have been driving us to a toxic lifestyle and relationships.” (Alberto Villoldo)
It’s the same with beliefs. You need to CONSCIOUSLY think different until it becomes so normal that you hardly have the old belief anymore. But (and there is a big “BUT” coming), you need to allow yourself some TIME. And not just that, you also have to be patient with yourself and love yourself. Whenever you catch yourself using the old belief and accept that it is NORMAL, it’s okay!
“You have the power in the present moment to change limiting beliefs and consciously plant the seeds for the future of your choosing. As you change your mind, you change your experience.” (Serge King)
So, without any judgment, you should patiently begin on working to change your subconscious ideas and limiting beliefs into “real expressions of your authentic self”. This is an idea I got from Sue Thoele.
This is the HEALTHY way of changing a belief.
Remember to always LOVE yourself!
