Most humans intuitively understand that there is a connection between their beliefs and their reality. “I’ll believe it when I see it” is an oft repeated phrase and part of conventional wisdom.
Many have even learned to flip the phrase, adhering to the much more accurate, “I’ll see it when I believe it.” These ideas are not foreign; they are widely accepted and almost universally embraced.
You See What You Believe
Of course, you inherit your beliefs as a young child. And they’re stored in your subconscious, where they are able to remain intact from any outside influences to change them. (They remain intact from all outside sources attempting to change them with word-based language, that is)
As you leave childhood and encounter more and more of your reality without the guiding lenses of important caregivers, you begin to have your own ideas about how life works for you. You see and understand how valuable it is for you to believe things like:
- Abundance is not only always possible, it is waiting for you in each moment
- You are just as worthy of wealth (and health, love, fitness, etc.) as anyone else
- Your success can actually help others; you can “lift every boat in the harbor”
- You are capable of almost anything you’re willing to work at
- You can be successful without hindering or preventing anyone else from it
- You bring value to the things you’re involved in; you’re an asset
- You deserve love (and wealth, health, fitness, etc.), just as much as anyone
- Life is not a zero-sum game; making others successful makes you successful
- You are good enough to manifest and experience your most important desires
We All Start Picking Our Own Beliefs When We Get Older
When you’re old enough to start having your own understanding of how life works, it’s natural to develop your own preferences about it. All humans, to some extent, experience this as they become adults. Beliefs like those listed above are much more capable of manifesting a version of reality you truly desire, after all.
So you make new, enlightened beliefs of your own by talking, thinking, and even writing about them. You recite them aloud when your reality is disappointing or painful. You repeat them internally too, giving your Self positive affirmations. Given enough time, most humans feel certain that they have adopted these new, more preferable beliefs. In their mind, they’re re-trained their Selves to hold much more capable and accommodating beliefs about how life works for them.
Don’t Pick New Beliefs – Grow Them Instead!
Unfortunately, though, when new beliefs do not match the ones you were given during childhood, your subconscious completely ignores them. In addition to being word-based (which your subconscious does not comprehend, they are too much of a quantum leap in positivity for your subconscious to consider.
What can you do? Change your beliefs by speaking your subconscious’ native tongue. It really works!
