“When you look in the mirror and say, 'I love you,' don't worry if you don't believe it yet. Love is far more powerful than your limiting beliefs.” - Cheryl Richardson
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
What is a belief and where do they come from? Your beliefs impact your world and how you create it. They can raise you to new heights when you choose them lovingly. The choice is solely yours, so revel in the fact that you have the power to choose. You have the power to create a life that is magical when you shift to beliefs that feel good and serve you well.
Your beliefs are the root of who you are, and WHO you are choosing to be. Your belief system is either filling your life with joy and abundance or it's presenting you with a life that you wish was different. That belief system is determined by you as you choose to stay within it or to move out of it. And it's so much more literal and easier to change than you might think.
Everyone has a belief system, but we call it by other names, like "the truth", "the facts" or "reality." It represents our view of how the world works, or ought to work. It's a feeling of certainty around something that exists, and the feeling that it is the "absolute truth" or perhaps the "only possibility."
There are lots of words that you use everyday to signify a belief. While they may not sound so absolute, they represent your belief system just the same, and they are at the root of how you feel. How you feel creates your world, so your underlying belief system is a critical element in the creation process.
We often use 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". Anytime you say these things, it indicates the beliefs that you hold. So, pay attention to the words that you speak. There’s a famous quote that says: “From the depth of your heart, your mouth speaks.” So speak only things that you want to create in your reality.
Remember, your mind does not differentiate between your current reality and your imagination. Ultimately, you get what you expect. So, why not allow into your imagination only those things which will bring you joy!
Are there things in your life that you are unhappy with? Why not begin to change these things, starting NOW! Everything in your life that you don’t like can be traced back to a belief and it’s associated emotion. Know that you are the power behind your life's creation. You can change how you feel about anything, so it’s worth your time and effort.
How can you create a belief system that will serve you well?
1. When you recognize a belief that is not serving you well, be committed to changing it. To follow-through in a practical way, simply write down your current belief and create a new belief that feels better in its place. How will you know it? Simply repeat it out loud and see how it makes you feel. Once you have the right words, begin to repeat the new belief over and over again like a mantra. Repetition is key as it creates the rewiring of your brain’s neural pathways, creating a new “auto-pilot” to operate from.
2. Look in the mirror, put your hands over your heart and tell yourself you love yourself... over and over again. When you wake up in the morning, put your hand on your heart and tell yourself again, “I love myself.” Do it often throughout your day and before you go to sleep. As you do, you activate the 40,000 most powerful cells in your body. You send signals to the brain that release the flow of oxytocin, often referred to as the "love hormone”, into your brain and body, making you feel better immediately. I have seen it’s miraculous effects on clients practicing it in my office, taking away stomach and intestinal pain, dramatically reducing anxiety and improving mood, all in a very short period of time.
You have the magnificence within you to dream and to change beliefs to those that create a whole new wonderful story of your life, if you choose. Yes, it takes deliberate focus, thought, diligence of mind, and knowing that it is possible. Whatever your heart truly desires... improved health, more money, more joy, the career that you love, etc... you can have it if you choose to put forth the effort consistently.
Always remember, the foundation to creating a new outcome begins with you loving you. If there is a secret to getting everything you want, it is that loving yourself first is the way. Knowing how incredible you are allows you to see it in others.
So, start with knowing your magnificent Source of Infinite Power within. When you truly love who you were created to be, and you know that you are magnificent and brilliant in your own unique way, you will choose only loving thoughts, words and actions. Everything in your life will flow easily and effortlessly, just like the flow of a river. That’s when our beliefs turn to knowing and the miracles truly happen.
Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude and fun, fun, fun!
