Your beliefs are developed from family, friends, society, and your experiences. They are nothing more than opinions that you trust and are often passed down from generation to generation (which means that beliefs are hereditary). Beliefs are extremely powerful and give energy very strong direction and force.
If you experience something or are told something and have no reason to dis-believe or doubt the information, it can settle into your subconsciousness or unconsciousness as being TRUE, which creates a belief that in many instances you may not even know is there.
Ask yourself: Is it our belief, or is it my belief? Does that belief resonate with me? Does that belief make sense to me? Is that belief worth me believing in?
Whatever you believe is TRUE for YOU!
If a child witnesses racism, especially from someone they hold in high regard (like a mother, father, grandparent, etc.), they learn to believe that judging someone for the color of their skin or for the slant of their eyes or for their nationality is okay. Judgment of others attracts judgment of you. You must HEAL the instinct to judge others!
If you learned that money is always a struggle, financial abundance may be difficult to come by. You must HEAL the belief that money is always a struggle because telling yourself that you are worthy of financial abundance doesn't change your belief!
If you perceived or were told that you were never good enough, you might believe that you’re not good enough. No matter how many times you tell yourself that you ARE good enough, it does not change the deep-seated belief that you are not and may never be. You must HEAL the belief that you're not good enough and create a new belief that you ARE good enough.
If one day you ate tomatoes and got heartburn, you may have developed a belief that tomatoes cause heartburn. Therefore, each time you eat tomatoes you experience heartburn. Because of this belief, you leave very little chance for your Body to re-act differently. You must HEAL the belief that does not support your desires to give your Body a chance to do something different!
On the other hand, if you have been able to find a job effortlessly, you believe that getting a job is easy. If you have always had the money you needed, you may never doubt that you’ll always have the money you need. If you pick up on new things quickly, you believe that learning is easy.
Either way, beliefs are very powerful and create many things in your life. Are your beliefs creating what you want or are they interfering with you having what you want?
Assess what beliefs support your desires and HEAL the ones that don't! The faster you HEAL the ones that create what you don't want, the faster you can have what you do want!
