How to Change Your Life with Your Thoughts and Beliefs


Beliefs

If your life is not as joyful as you would like it to be, it is because your thoughts and beliefs are not aligned with your desires and passions. They are not in alignment with who you were crated to be.

Did you know that you can deliberately create the reality you want using your thoughts and beliefs?  You can change your life by changing the story you are telling about your life. Change the thoughts you think and it will change your reality. Your beliefs about your reality will change.

Here are 4 tips that can help you do that:

Step 1: Use affirmations correctly

Affirmations don’t really work for people in the ways that have been taught to them, because when you have a belief like: “I’m not good enough” that has been backed up by years of proof, when you say “I’m good enough” it contradicts your own intelligence, it sounds like a lie. It makes you more aware of where you aren’t rather than closing the gap between where you are and where you want to be.

So we need to back up a little bit and be incremental. We need to place stepping stones on our road to closing the gap between where we are and where we want to be.

Here is an example: If you hold the belief that: “I am not good enough,” just saying “I am good enough” won’t work, but if you start looking for small evidences that you are good enough you can start bridging the gap.

Step 2: Come up with things you actually do believe which are on the way to the belief that “I am good enough.”

Here is an example: Instead of thinking “I’m not good enough,” think: “I am a deep thinker,” or “I am an inspirational speaker,” or “I have valuable things to share with people.” That can be a mental step toward “I am good enough.”

Those are the types of thoughts you want to be using as affirmations.

Practice beliefs (incrementally) that are closer and closer to the vibration of “I am good enough.” Pretty soon that gap will be closed and you will believe it.

Step 3: Try this experiment

Choose something that you have no emotional attachment to and spend 10 minutes a day focusing on it and visualizing it. Don’t choose something you care a lot about because if you are emotionally attached or you are desperate for this thing to manifest you will experience resistance.

For example: you could choose horses or butterflies or whatever, as long as you really aren’t attached to it at all. If for example you choose horses, then set your alarm for 10 minutes and start visualizing riding them, feeding them, stroking their manes etc. Try to visualize in a way that involves your senses (smell it, taste it, feel it). Loose yourself completely in the experience until the timer goes off. Keep this up for at least a week and you will soon find that the thing that you chose to focus on is showing up in your life in amazing ways – on bumper stickers, movies, articles etc. You will be amazed at how this will help you gain the belief that what you focus on becomes a part of your reality. Once you gain a belief in this principle you can begin to use it for other things more relevant to your desires.

Step 4: Look for new evidence of your new belief. The brain is like a scientist and you can send it out on a scavenger hunt for new proof. Once you focus on the proof – more proofs will appear. It will snowball into your experience until you are sitting in an entirely different reality.

I hope you will experiment with these 4 tips and as always I am interested in your insights and experiences.

How to Overcome Addiction!


anxiety

If you are suffering from an addiction of any kind I hope these tips will give you great hope! I have learned about addiction from an amazing woman named Teal Swan. You can find her videos on YouTube.

Addiction is your mind and body’s way of trying to do a good thing. Addiction is moving away from discord toward relief. People with addictions are very sensitive to needing relief from their discord. Your brain has, through trial and error, found a way to find relief from the discord. If you increase your level of stress and discord in your life your urge to engage in an addictive behavior is going to go up. If you decrease the stress and discord, your urge toward an addictive activity will not occur.

Addiction is not about the substance or activity, it is about what the addiction covers up. You have to find out what you are covering up. You have to find out what you’re running away from if you want to get to the heart of an addictive behavior.

Ask yourself these two important questions:

1. “What is the motivation for this particular addiction?

2. What am I trying to escape from and what am I trying to avoid?

Once you have identified the motivation for your addiction, here are some tips that will help:

1. Find people, groups and professionals to support you. Find people who are capable of reflecting back to you the person you really are, loving you when you are covered in vomit, when you are screaming and itching your own skin off. People who will hold an anchor for you – the anchor of who you really are.

2. Ease up about your guilt relative to the subject of addiction and relapses especially. When you feel discord and feel the urge, when you feel guilt for the addiction itself, there is more discord added on top of it and that spirals into more addiction. Ease up on yourself and understand that the reason you are addicted in the first place is that you want to feel good. It doesn’t make you a bad person, you still have every bit as much worth as when you were born.

Every time you add the stress of guilt and of disappointment towards the SELF you are getting to all of the reasons you’ve begun engaging in the addiction in the first place. You have a recipe for failure. There is no reason to put yourself in that kind of prison and punishment. You cannot condemn yourself without feeding the energy of addiction.  Your body will always compensate because it loves you. If you add self-condemnation you will need even more of the addiction. It isn’t the substance that makes your lifestyle worse it’s the deepening guilt.

Once you feel addicted and powerless, you feel absolutely no self-esteem. When you have no self-Esteem your point of attraction becomes worse and the things in your physical reality get worse, and worse. You feel like a failure so your body can’t stay in health.

3.  You need to delve into the motivation for the addiction in the first place. You need to find out what the addiction is covering. Delve into it as deeply as you can possibly go.

This is heavy stuff you are dealing with. People get to addiction because their place of discord is so big. You don’t need to unravel that all by yourself. Find people to help. Until you solve the motivation for the addiction the motivation is still going to exist. You will not get over the addiction while it still serves you. It still serves you when the motivation is not healed. People who say “I can’t get over this” it is because the addiction still serves them. What is underneath must be healed.

4Learn how to meditate. This is one of the most valuable things you can learn. Relaxation is absolutely essential if you have discord. Discord causes the urge. Finding a way to relax, to allow and to let yourself go and find relief in ways that are healthy is absolutely paramount.

5. Start treating your body with health and care. Structure your diet so that it is a benefit to your health. Do the same with sleep and the people you associate with. Do the same with activities.  Structure your life to be in alignment with what you want to attract.  Exercise, healthy diet and healthy activities are conducive to eliminating toxins and positive thoughts.

When you have an addictive behavior – you don’t love yourself yet. Taking an action that is loving seems difficult. Practice self-loving thoughts and actions.

Summary: Overcoming addiction is not about removing the action or substance. It is about creating a life where you do not even feel the urge toward the substance or activity.

As always I am interested in your thoughts and comments!
