Let me share a bit about what I’ve learned to be true about Belief Systems! They’re ALL B.S!! (It’s no coincidence ... BS!)
Cleaning up my shit around what I believe has calmed the anxiety in my life! Let’s see if it can help calm yours too!
A belief is what we “know” to be true based on how we perceive something.
We BELIEVE what we SEE. So how we perceive an event becomes our reality, but that does NOT mean it's TRUE!
Our minds desire to "know" attaches a meaning to what we see because it makes us feel safe.
We then react to what we "see" which stimulates our nervous system to produce very real sensations or feelings in our body. Many of which are unfavourable, causing undo stress, anxiety & dis-ease in our bodies.
What if I challenged you to find 3-5 other possible “Truths” about what you believe to be true about any situation. Would you be able to?
How would this change your perception of events that you currently believe to be true? Would this then question EVERYTHING you know to be true?
Letting go of the need to cling, so desperately, onto our beliefs is what holds us back from living our most fulfilled lives.
So how do we change these deep rooted beliefs, most of which formed at a very young age through our family of origin & culture?
To do this we have to understand how these beliefs formed in the first place.
All that we “know” has been learned by cognitively understanding it or experiencing it, but did you also know that we can learn something by creating it?
This is amazing news! If we can create what we know, then we can create new beliefs.
If we uncover the BS that is keeping us stuck in a loop of habitual patterns & reactions, we can form new connections in our brain that will speak to our nervous system in a whole new way.
When we learn to do this we can stop the anxiety causing us to suffer & transform every aspect of our life, relationships, finances & overall health & wellbeing.
Imagine if you had learned to do this as a child! I highly recommend you learn how to now, it will change your life as it did mine!
