We form most of our beliefs before the age of 5.
Have you ever heard the phrase kids are like sponges? It is wonderful to witness how they learn. When we arrived in Australia in January 2014 my son had just turned 4 (August 27th) and my daughter 6 (October the 7th). They didn’t understand English but they were interested in the solar system. I chose some kid songs in English that taught us all about the planets, the sun, the moon, and more. We all sat down looking at the iPad singing along.
They spoke English in school, that was intense learning too, and in 3 months they could communicate themselves very well in English. It was super cute that they spoke it with an Australian accent. I just love it.
We all learn very fast and we observe our surroundings.
The relationship our parents have has a major impact on us.
It is very common to see people that have relationships with very similar patterns than the ones their parents had or have. Dietary habits, wealth beliefs, and so much more.
Some time ago I began to make a list of some of the limiting beliefs I had. I called it the:
“I can’t make it list”. It was very confronting and also healing because I knew what I had to deal with.
I’ll share with you some of them, maybe you have or had them too:
I can’t make it because I don’t have the studies.
I can’t make it because I don’t have the money.
I can’t make it because I’m not good enough.
I can’t make it because I can’t have it all.
I can’t make it because I don’t have the time.
I can’t make it because I have to take care of my family.
I can’t make it because I have a bad memory.
I can’t make it because I’m too sensitive.
I can’t make it because people find me weird.
I can’t make it because people won’t believe me…
We should challenge and question our beliefs. When we do, they are no longer true.
It feels so great to stand in front of those beliefs and ask; “Is that true?”. That came from someone else. There is no one truth in the world, there are as many trues as there are humans and we can choose our own truth. So, what will your true be?
What I began to do was to write a constructive affirmation on a different page and every time I finished writing a sentence, I felt more and more excited. My breathing began to change and I began to smile. I felt so happy to be me, to have all those great attributes, for example:
With or without the studies I can succeed big time.
I can make it with or without the money.
I am good enough.
I have all the time I want and need.
My sensitivity is my strength.
People love and accept my uniqueness…
Imagine all the beliefs that don’t serve us in a suitcase. See yourself handing them back to the people who gave them to you while saying “these belong to you, so I am returning them to you”.
After that, you say goodbye to them and you feel how a waterfall of all the new and positive beliefs are being downloaded into your mind. You can feel them all over your body and you feel grateful and lighter.
I totally recommend you to do that.
You can also use another method were in pencil you write down your limiting beliefs and below each one of them, in red ink you write the truth.
For 7 days in a row, you read the lie firs and then the lie of each belief so that whenever you think about the lie your brain is trained to finish with the truth.
After that, you erase the lie and only read the truths, for as long as you need until you really feel they have sunken.
You can do both, you can go with a life coach or hypnotherapist and have faster results. The main point here is that no matter how old you are, you can let go of them and feel abundant again.
“Abundance is not something we acquire; it is something we tune into.”
Thank you for reading my blogs, I love that you take the time to go through them and then share your thought, aha-moments, experiences, and more.
Abundance is in us, connect with it.
To your success;
