We all have thoughts and feeling that do not serve us well in one way or another, though it is always possible to transform them in a way that works to our benefit rather than our detriment. Sometimes we are quite aware of these thoughts and feelings and their negative impact on us. Many times, however, we fail to realize how deeply they affect how our life unfolds and the experiences we attract into it.
We know they are there lurking, but we avoid really paying them mind when they arise and we find a way to distract ourselves. We obsess about trying to think positive thoughts and trying to adopt positive beliefs, hoping that the other garbage will just go away – in theory, totally possible, but the theory requires you to be able to completely wipe out limiting thoughts and beliefs in an instant, something that most of us have a hard time doing. While focusing on the negative is usually discouraged, sometimes that is where we need to start to truly begin living a life filled with more positive experiences.
We want one thing, but our beliefs and thoughts completely contradict this vision and the changes we desperately want have yet to take hold. Let’s take money for example . We yearn for more money to give us greater freedom, but we hold so many conflicting thoughts that will keep it out of our reach, such as poverty is virtuous, money is the root of all evil, to gain means someone else has to lose – the list could go on and on. We have negative feelings towards rich people and we get great pleasure seeing them falter in some way, whether this misfortune affects their bank account or some other aspect of their lives. We look at our outside circumstances that have always included a lack of money so we can never get into that vibration of feeling like we have money, it just seems impossible. Money is a very complicated thing – it surely cannot make us happy, but it can do a lot of good.
Before you can let money or anything else into your life, you need to face up to any negative thoughts and beliefs you have about said thing or your ability to get it. Yes, I know you need to think good things and feel good thoughts, but if you keep sweeping the negative under the carpet instead of owning it is there and vowing to transform it, what you want will always be out of your reach. You will get frustrated that this whole attraction process does not work and you will give up.
If there is any area of your life right now that is lacking in any way, it is imperative that you examine your beliefs and thoughts in this area, because there is something within you that is contributing to it. There are thoughts and beliefs that are keeping you here instead of moving you forward to where you want to be. What are they? Why do you think them to be true? What could you believe instead that would be more empowering and lead you to getting what you want? Facing that stuff can be uncomfortable in more ways that one, but embracing is necessary to let it go.
Taking an honest look at what we think and believe and how we came to hold these things is a great first step in transforming them into their positive counterparts and making that your new reality. Often times, when we are trying to improve ourselves or our lives, we feel guilty for still having negative thoughts and beliefs, but it is nothing to feel guilty about. If they are still there, you need to own they are there and know that they are simply things you just told yourself over and over again, they are not cold, hard, unchangeable facts. This will reduce their grip on you and allow more empowering beliefs to take root and grow. The other stuff may pull at you sometimes, but it will lose its power. You will see these limiting beliefs and thoughts as fleeting and temporary, just a bad moment, rather than any hard declarations of truth.
