Within you right now is the power to do things you never dreamed possible. This power becomes available to you just as soon as you can change your beliefs. ~Maxwell Maltz
Many of us are limited in our ability to act with our full potential because we have attached to a belief that stops us in life. The belief we first set into place was a fear filled reaction to make sense of and deal with a situation that confronted us and challenged our survival in that moment. When confronted with similar situations, we typically responded in the best way we knew how – with that same false interpretation which at the time made great sense.
By confronting and healing those beliefs that do not serve us any longer, we grow our Personal Power to create a life of joy and full self-expression. Below are some “Keys to Consider” prior to working the 10 steps.
Limiting or negative beliefs originally began as false interpretations, and repeated over time became habits.
To “heal” of overcoming a negative belief, now a habit, requires ongoing practice. However, the 10 step process that follows will embolden your mind by you taking charge of your thoughts.
Thoughts are like race cars going around the track in our mind. We don’t have the power to stop the race altogether, but we can focus on one of the cars (thoughts) and call it into the pit for some service. When you notice that racing thought, do yell “Stop!” and tell it to pause for service.
Fighting with negative thinking does not work. Your act of “aggression” just serves to reinforce the existence of more negativity. Rather, watch and allow the thought to quietly drift down the river (without you jumping on board!).
10 Steps to Healing Your Negative Beliefs
The power to reframe your limiting beliefs was given to you by your Spiritual Source. You have the innate power to rule the universe of your mind.
Your Natural Self is the one that is connected to your Spiritual Source and Divine Goodness. By practicing “attunements” (meditation, prayer, Stillness, etc.) to your Source (I call God) you develop a greater sense of your own goodness. and have the ability to create a life filled with compassion and love.
By acting to help or serve the needs of others, you take your mind off of the “me plan” and your upset rapidly diminishes.
When all else fails, turn your mind to gratitude, the great “mind shifter,” and watch a feeling of goodness wash over you!
