Belief systems are not always conscious thoughts, sometimes they are subconscious and they can create havoc with our day to day lives.
Have you ever considered your reactions and behaviour changes in certain situations and immediately thought to yourself, I don’t know why I react like this?
Our subconscious can be a difficult mind map to uncover.
When you think all is well and suddenly things start changing in our lives, we have no idea why / how. This is when we need to take a look at our belief systems. In our belief systems we can sometimes find events, memories and trauma that have caused us to believe this way.
Here’s an example:
As a child you can feel super proud of that task / work you just completed and then you show someone and they don’t praise you, they tell you what you could do to make it better next time. This is a common trait for children to carry, and our childhood memories are stored deep within our memory bank, but don’t always show up in our conscious thoughts. But in that moment as a child you feel super proud and don’t get any acknowledgement it is stored as the work / task you did wasn’t ‘good enough’. When this happens more and more this is when we form a negative belief that we are ‘NOT GOOD ENOUGH’ but is this belief true? How many other beliefs have you stored that are ‘not good enough’?
By testing your own worth as an adult you can choose to acknowledge that it is good enough even if it’s just ‘for now’.
The negative beliefs we hold are worth looking at, are they really true in reality? WE hold so much and it takes time to work them out, but having a helping hand to help you alleviate the ones that are affecting your day to day life can help you feel lighter, more at ease with yourself and less reactive to them.
These false and negative beliefs have a huge impact on our personal power, they can make us feel less worthy, unloveable and can also assist in high levels of anxiety, fear, overthinking and stress. All of which do not contribute to a healthy way of being and certainly do decrease confidence, trust in self / others and really do hold us back in life.
All in all, this is another reason why I love EFT it supports us to acknowledge and accept our beliefs, whilst helping us to clear them with ease.
What have you tried to help you with false / negative beliefs, what has / hasn’t worked so far?
