What is a belief?
A belief is simply a repeated thought. Some are empowering, and others are disempowering.
we have long held beliefs, they can seem very real to us. When we take
a moment to look at them we often find that they are no longer
supportive or true. Most people don't take the time to clear up
unsupportive beliefs and continue to run their lives on autopilot at the
whim of their old beliefs.
Why is it important to clear up beliefs?
you find yourself repeating behaviours that generate less then useful
results, you are probably working from a limiting belief. People
generally want to operate at their best, so in order to do that, we need
to clear out limiting beliefs and choose some new empowering ones.
Points to note about beliefs:
- They are not always true, they often seem real because they have been with us for some time.
- They can be changed to an empowering belief.
They can run our lives without us being aware of them if we don't take the time to work with them.
They are a personal thing, what seems important to me may be totally irrelevant or insignificant to you.
How do we change a belief?
There are some simple processes we can use to change limiting beliefs.
will be examing these in the 'Tude E-coaching program in greater
detail. The intensity of beliefs is very personal, it is important that
you decide for yourself what your limiting beliefs are and how deeply
are the first steps to changing your beliefs. We cannot give you the
full process as we recommend only qualified practitioners take you
- Identify your limiting belief and state it clearly
- Check whether it is useful in any way or any situation
- If it's not useful, we can
change it completely, if it is useful in some situations, we can keep it
for those and change it for situations where it is limiting.
Notice whether the belief is still true for you. Do you know when you decided to believe it?
For some beliefs it is simply a matter of being aware that it is no longer true, and this allows you to let it go easily.
deeper or more emotionally charged beliefs we recommend you do a Belief
Change process with a qualified practitioner to ensure the process is
completed safely and with ecology.
Examples of beliefs we can help you with include:
- I'm not good with money
- I'm not good at anything
- I'm not good at relationships
- Relationships never work out for me
- I'm not a good learner
- Nobody loves me
- I always come last
- I'm not popular
- I'm not a good person
I'm a procrastinator
I never finish anything
I'm not wealthy
I'm not confident
And the list goes on...
are so many beliefs we hold onto, as adults many of us still hold onto
beliefs from our childhood. A simple belief like 'I'm not good enough'
can manifest itself in all areas of our lives, creating a web of other
limiting beliefs. These can take some untangling in order to uncover
and shift the original belief.
