Do you have limiting beliefs which are accidentally holding you back from happiness? If so, here are 6 steps to overcome and unblock whatever is holding you back from living your happiest life. Read on…
If so, there’s a strong chance your subconscious mind is “programmed with limiting beliefs” – which are causing you to do “limiting habits” which get in your way of a happier life.
That’s easy: Life is difficult.
You need to gain consciousness into your “daily thought patterns,” or else you will continue to find yourself going from saying…
As a result, you’ll turn your present “destructive beliefs” into helpful “instructive beliefs” – thereby unblock the negative beliefs which are getting in your way of joy.
Dare to think about your five most painful disappointing life incidents.
Do you feel tense in your stomach, neck, head, back?
There’s a neuroscientific reason for starting with this physical focus — given to me by neuroscientist and psychologist Dr. Goulston.
Dr. Goulston suggests that to achieve your best stream of consciousness, it helps to start at the lowest spheres of your brain — your animal sphere – then rise up to your emotional — then thirdly head into your neocortex – your highest rational brain processing.
When you start by tapping into your physical senses first, you are starting in a slow way to get in touch with your pain.
Basically, becoming aware of the pain in your body is the least scary self-exploration for people to engage in.
After you are aware of the pain in your body, breathe it out. Try to release it.
You will then be more prepared to explore your emotional pain.
Pick one (or more) of the questions below to answer. I recommend answering at least 3 of these. Make sure the questions you pick are ones which relate back in topic to your present problem(s).
Dispute and discredit your (b)lame excuses from step #3 — by gathering “positive evidence” otherwise!
When you spend as much time as possible with happy people who have what you want – you further shift your belief system to the highly positive.
You change what your subconscious mind thinks is “normal” and develop a “new normal” which is more optimistic.
I promise that if you bravely jackhammer down and get to the root of your limiting beliefs, you’ll be on your way to living a life you love!
After you do these steps you will experience another benefit:
You faced up to the scary, mysterious “Wizard of Oz” fears in your life – and you pulled back the curtain on them!
As a result, you discovered that your “Wizard of Oz” fears and worries – which you blamed for your troubles – were not nearly as scary and powerful as you originally believed!
