I've managed to overcome a LOT, and even change myself physically. To be honest, though, I still have some very limiting beliefs and I know it's going to take me at least a few weeks or months to work through them. I don't want to be impatient, but I'm eager to feel even better :)
I noticed I've been attracting a lack of credit for my ideas and sometimes it feels like I'm almost sending my ideas to others if that even makes sense. Like, people will come up with the exact same specific things, only they'll get there first. I mean, like really specific things only they'll get there like hours before and get lots of people praising their work and mine gets ignored. It's frustrating. I know it's like Abe says...all the questions have the same answer. I'm just being grumpy.
In reality I've overcome a humungous amount in a relatively short amount of time. If I can overcome these limiting beliefs, I'll be doing even better :D
I'm also working on trying to change limiting beliefs. The last four days I've been listening to Youtube subliminals on the topic that I'm working on. You can't hear the subliminals consciously, but they're supposedly heard by your subconscious which gets programmed by them by listening to them over and over again.
If you look at the comments under some of these videos you will see that some people report that they worked for them. And some people report that they didn't. Maybe the people they didn't work for didn't give them long enough, I don't know. I heard they can take a few days, weeks, or sometimes months before they works. Listening to them more often can supposedly help speed up the process. You can even listen to them while sleeping.
If you give subliminals a try, I would pick ones that list the affirmations under the video. Obviously you want to know what exactly they're programming your subconscious mind with. There are also hypnosis videos on Youtube on different topics, but I don't know if they work any better then subliminals. I would assume the do the same thing - give suggestions/affirmations to your subconscious.
I suppose you could also say affirmations over and over, but it seems like that would take longer.
Thanks, Ndacloud! I'll look into this for sure. I suppose if you believe it's going to work, then it will work for you! :)
From what I’ve been reading here and elsewhere, changing your focus or a thought will change your belief. Joseph Murphy says, “A thought is a belief.” Think the same things frequently or enough times and it becomes a solid belief. Think or focus on contradictory things and you’ll negate the other belief. So focus on what makes you feel good! Think thoughts that feel good! Do it enough times and it’s concrete.
I’m still learning. Not the board’s leading LOA expert yet but all this sounds right to me. Some say if you sit there trying to dissect your beliefs and thinking about them, you won’t change them as well.
Limiting beliefs are a really fascinating subject to me. I’ve looked at this in great detail over the last few years especially and find books on behavioural kinesiology to be real gems with this stuff. Muscle testing to determine if you really believe things can be really eye opening and it’s a fun and physical thing to do also which I like.
For me subliminals didn’t really work. I’ve used quite a few different ones and never saw much from them. I think the key is actually making the decision to change. As when you get really clear on that, its amazing to see the Universe takes notice and starts to rearrange tiself.
With affirmations, they were originally designed to uncover subconscious blocks and they really do work but they can seem like hard work for sure. When they were originally introduced, you would fold a piece of paper in half, and write the affirmation on the left side, and then jot whatever thought or feeling came up on the right side next to that affirmation, and you would repeat the process until you have literally got rid of all the junk you had going round in your head in relation to that statement. Believe me – sometimes you could write pages, pages and pages but it was also interesting because you would see responses that perhaps you weren’t aware of and spot patterns or reoccurring themes that you may not otherwise be aware of. Plus if you are stubborn (like me) sometimes your hand would ache from all the writing but it was an easy to do method for uncovering blocks and integrating the affirmation. Nowadays, mirror work is a faster route, but nonetheless its still a valuable tool to have in your toolbox
Ask your higher self to show you what your MAIN LIMITING BELIEF is. From that, most if not all other limiting beliefs stem and create your reality. Once you know what it is you can then work on turning it around and releasing it in your mind. Ask it and keep on asking for a few days and then it will show you in some way. It could be an article, a conversation with someone else, a person who really stands out in some way, an uncomfortable feeling you may have, an experience, a film plot etc...there are all sorts of possible ways. Just be open to receiving the idea and working out what it could mean.
Changing be!ifes. This implies an underlying belief. That belief can be undone through catharsis. Just saying outright that belief you hold that you want to undo. Then simply affirm, visualize, intend as usual.
In rebirthing it is taught that we all have one underlying limited belief and a great emphasis is placed on locating that belief. For me, I did it for years and kind of disagree. Rather than having just one belief, it can be a collection of beliefs. Often times its thought that we have repeated many thousands of times particular beliefs by the age of 3 years some several hundred thousand times. I have no idea how they calculated that - but its interesting. So sometimes i think that just saying one opposite belief to that number of beliefs seems hard to believe that it can and will counteract all those repetitions. However I also believe in the power of choice too.
Eliminating the Main limiting belief is not only an answer to a current problem but also for consistent results.
Sometimes we work on eliminating the ‘sub-beliefs’ and it brings us temporary success but eventually we go back to where we started . It takes a lot of energy to keep fighting the main limiting belief when eliminating it is very very liberating .
That kind of implies though that we all have one main limiting belief and I'm not really convinced that we do. It kind of falls under the psychological idea (that is still argued and unproven) that one primary thought dominates our entire life and is the underlying structure we use in every single decision. Even to some degree if there was a primary belief, you would need resources to identify it, and I have yet to see anything that truly can show one belief that is a primary focus point in our experience. Often its a collection of beliefs.
You can use youtube 'guided meditation' hypnosis. I like HYPNOTIC LABS, there is one hypnotist named Joe Tracy and he is great, he guided me to past lives, spirit guides, finding my field of abundance. It really helped get my hidden contrary beliefs on the same page as the words I was speaking. He uses a technique where you are lucid, and in control at all times, but it relaxes your wake mind so that he and you may gently guide your image mind.
"Hypnosis for Changing Your Reality and Beliefs (Law of Attraction)"
If I may, I'd like to ask a few questions about the way in which you used hypnosis to change your beliefs. Did you hypnotize yourself once to change just one belief? Also, did you use hypnosis to change deep-seated beliefs or just a few trivial ones?
I used two techniques. I used affirmations as I slept, 5+ hours of I AM ... affirmations. Such as I am abundance etc. I also dedicated an hour a day to guided meditation hypnosis before sleep and would choose to release unconscience blockages, meeting my spirit guide, and many for prosperity and joy. I chose a new one each day. It was amazing, and I still do this once or twice a week and at night with the sleep hypnosis affirmations
