How To Eliminate False Beliefs : Overcoming Negative Thought Patterns
ARE YOU FEELING OVERWHELMED?
When it comes to what we perceive in our reality our beliefs are very significant. It is said “as you think so shall you be”, yet it should be worded as you believe so shall you be.
Your beliefs are simply thoughts you have thought about over and over again. The more these thoughts are thought about, they become habitual thoughts. It is these habitual thoughts that form your belief patterns.
When it comes to beliefs some may be benefiting you while others may not. In this article, I am going to focus on false non-beneficial beliefs. These are the beliefs that hold you back from your desires.
As we have covered, beliefs form through the repetition of thought. The more you focus on a thought the more it will become true for you. This goes both ways for positive and negative.
In knowing that, to eliminate false beliefs you want to uproot them (find them) and then you want to replace them with better feeling thoughts. As you continually focus on these better-feeling thoughts, you will eventually begin to notice the change you seek.
This may not happen overnight, yet the key is to rid yourself of the beliefs which hold you back.
You may be asking “where do I start?”, “how do I find my false beliefs?”
You can find your false beliefs by asking the right questions... For example, you may not be content with where you are in life... You could then ask something like “why am I not where I want to be in life?”
As you observe the answers, you will notice that chances are, they are majority false beliefs. An example of a false belief response could be something such as “I am not good enough” or “I can't”. Or maybe even “I do not have enough money” etc. These are all false beliefs that have no power over you unless you allow them to.
It is these types of false beliefs that you want to rid yourself of and replace with positive more beneficial ones. In the same way, you programmed yourself with false beliefs, to begin with by constant thought of the beliefs, so too can you replace those beliefs with new ones in the same way.
You have the power within to create your reality by preparing your mind with positive thoughts which reap the right benefits for you.
Now that you are equipped with the knowledge you are, how will you choose to shape your destiny?
