Manifesting Your Ideal Life - Part I
Remember, you are not your beliefs. You are a divine spiritual being, so why hold onto anything that is preventing you from realizing this truth?
So here’s the secret.
Look around. Whenever you have a repeating problem in some area of your life, then that is where you have a false or limiting belief. This doesn’t mean that just because you’re in between relationships or jobs, you necessarily have a false belief. But if the problem constantly reappears, then you can be 99% certain a false belief is involved.
Avoid the temptation to blame someone for inserting this false belief into your belief system. After all, you could easily point fingers at your parents, teachers, friends, TV, etc., as well as yourself. It’s not important where it came from, you just want to be rid of it, so you can experience your ideal life.
You have two choices here. You can 1) identify your unconscious beliefs and release them, or 2) learn to recognize the symptoms of accepting this limiting belief and change your thoughts. You can also do a combination of the two.
Choice 1) Use your attitudes to identify your false beliefs.
One way to free yourself of a negative belief is to write it on a piece of paper and burn it while telling yourself it is forever banished from your being. Write a positive affirmation on another piece of paper such as “Good people can have money.” You can add other affirmations, such as “I am worthy of prosperity” and “Money flows easily to me.” Repeat these affirmations aloud 9 times a day for 21 days.This is the length of time it takes to reprogram your instinctive mind, where these beliefs are stored.
Choice 2) Make sure you are always sending out the proper vibration.
Replace your negative thoughts with positive ones. The book, Ask and It is Given identifies and ranks 22 emotions. Understanding that most people can’t go from hatred to joy in one step, they advise you to simply keep moving up the ladder. Eventually, you’ll get to feel joy more and more frequently and for longer periods of time.
In both cases, you have substituted positive thoughts and feelings for negative ones. You may recognize this involves a degree of self-observation. As was inscribed on the Temple at Delphi, “Know Thyself.”
Incidentally, this process of substituting thoughts will work for any thought, including a memory. If you have any unpleasant memories, you can substitute positive experiences for them. Mystics call this Mental Alchemy, after the old alchemists that transformed lead into gold. We’ll cover this subject in our next newsletter.
