Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer- 8/21/2017
"Our belief system is just like a mirror that only shows us what we believe."
~ Don Miguel Ruiz
What is it about a belief that either raises you to new heights in your life or holds you back? What are beliefs and where do they come from? How can you change your beliefs so they help you get what you truly desire in every area of your life?
Your beliefs are currently defining how you see the world, the way you think it works or it ought to work. They are unique to you, representing WHO you are choosing to be, and you are using them as a basis for creating your world, probably without knowing it. Your belief system is either filling your life with joy and abundance or it's bringing you more of what you don’t enjoy. Your belief system is controlled by you as you choose to stay within it or to move out of it. It's so much more literal, and can be so much easier to change, than you might think!
Everyone has a belief system, but we call it by other names, like "the truth" or "the facts" or "reality." It's a feeling of certainty that something that exists is the absolute truth. Perhaps you think it's the only possibility. There are lots of words that you use everyday to signify a belief, and while they may not sound so absolute, they represent your belief system just the same. They are at the root of how you feel, which is the most important point. Remember, how you feel creates your world, so your underlying belief system is a critical element in the creation process of your life.
Words like "this is my opinion," "this is how I feel," or "I see it like this," as well as statements like "I think" and "I expect"..... indicate the beliefs that you hold. Do those statements that follow these phrases make you feel happy?
You will feel happier as you change your beliefs to those that open your heart to love. You have free will. So, why not begin to change these things, starting NOW! You have the magnificence within you to dream, change to beliefs that support those dreams, and create a whole new story of your life if you choose.
There is nothing better than feeling joy as you transform your mind by feeling more love and gratitude first for you and then, more naturally, for everyone around you. The starting point for your next experience and the next beyond that is determined by how you feel NOW. As you make choices now toward better feeling thoughts in this moment you get where you want to go. You create your life only in the moment you are in so let go of the past as it does not matter.
How do I know this to be a fact? Because I see it every day!
I see true miracles occur on a daily basis for clients who did not believe something was possible, only to find that within hours, days, weeks or months that some less than joyful circumstance of their life has changed dramatically.
So, what do you want your life to look like?
Whatever you feel, that’s what you create. If you feel that you are special and brilliant, that is how you will be treated by others. You must believe that you are worthy and loveable before others will treat you that way. If you believe that everyone loves you, you are going to experience love all around you. And, when you feel that all the people in your life are amazing, you create them that way too.
So, any time you look at a person or any situation as you are in it, decide how you want it to be. What does the perfect outcome look like? When you feel really good, your mind is calm and you will create the outcomes you want. Remember, changing a situation or a person depends purely on YOU. Like famous quantum physics experiments have proven, the results of the research depended purely on the scientists’ belief.
