  • Are subconscious beliefs sabotaging your... Spirituality?

    It's interesting to reflect on the reasons for the eruption of spiritual literature at the end of the last millennium, and its continuation into the 21st century. There seems to be a deep need in many people to fill a void in their lives that material possessions just can’t satisfy. Whether through organized religion or its various spiritual alternatives, the search for meaning in our lives has caused a heightened interest in things spiritual. Often people live in a state of perpetual “overwhelm.” In our high speed technological age, it is virtually impossible to feel “up to speed” on just about any subject or issue in our contemporary society. This sensation of being overwhelmed can, and often does, lead to a crippling feeling of insecurity and uncertainty. A steady diet of the evening news will convince anyone that the world is a bad place and getting worse!

    Furthermore, the menacing issues are so enormous and widespread that any real solution is unlikely. Threats to our well-being come from urban violence, international terrorism, inevitable economic collapse, moral decay, geological catastrophes, astronomical anomalies, biological and genetic aberrations, etc. The list goes on and on. In times like these, unable to manage or control their external environments, people turn inward for solace and comfort. It has been said that the only real security that we can know is our ability to change our point of view. In other words, the power to survive and even thrive in this kind of hopeless environment is to expand the connection to our spiritual selves.

    Using a simple process, you can check to see what your subconscious programs are regarding your spiritual or religious beliefs. You may be surprised to learn that beliefs you hold to be true consciously are not always shared by your subconscious mind! Where there is a disagreement between the conscious and subconscious minds, there is doubt and struggle.

    What PSYCH-K teaches is how to strengthen the beliefs people choose, not to choose the beliefs people should strengthen. So, you can use PSYCH-K to verify and strengthen your own religious and spiritual beliefs!

    Sample Beliefs:

    1. I believe in God (Divine Intelligence, Buddha, Allah, Great Spirit, etc.).

    2. I am loved by God (Divine Intelligence, Buddha, Allah, Great Spirit, etc.).

    3. I trust God (Divine Intelligence, Buddha, Allah, Great Spirit, etc.).

    4. I love God (Divine Intelligence, Buddha, Allah, Great Spirit, etc.).

    5. I am a necessary and important part of the Divine plan.

    6. I am guided and protected by God (Divine Intelligence, Buddha, Allah, Great Spirit, etc.).

    7. I have a personal relationship with God (Divine Intelligence, Buddha, Allah, Great Spirit, etc.).

  • Are subconscious beliefs sabotaging your... Self-Esteem?

    Your self-esteem profoundly influences how others view you. If your self-esteem is high, other people will tend to see you that way also. However, if your self-esteem is low, others will respond accordingly with a lack of confidence and trust in you. Essentially, your beliefs (especially the subconscious ones) are teaching the world how to treat you. The way people treat you is a reflection of those subconscious beliefs. Consequently, if you want to change the way others behave toward you, you need to change the self-limiting beliefs that are causing the undesirable treatment. As the saying goes, “If you can’t love yourself, you can’t expect others to.”

    Another aspect of self-esteem is the concept of unworthiness. Some world religions teach us that we are fundamentally unworthy. Others teach that life is endless suffering and to simply embrace it as an inevitable consequence of being in the world. Perhaps the nuances of these beliefs are understood by theologians in a way that doesn’t lead to the conclusion that “life’s a bitch and then you die,” but to the average person that conclusion is hard to escape. More often than not it leads to a deep sense of hopelessness and helplessness. And to add insult to injury, you are considered not worthy of having it be different! If you want to be free of the limitations of unworthiness in your life, be sure that your subconscious beliefs support that goal.

    Sample Beliefs:

    1. I deeply appreciate and accept myself.

    2. I love myself unconditionally.

    3. I deserve the very best life has to offer.

    4. I am confident and self-assured.

    5. I am proud of my results and comfortable with my successes and my failures.

    6. I am a good person.

    7. I do my best and my best is good enough.

  • Are subconscious beliefs sabotaging your... Relationships?

    For many people, relationships are the most rewarding and sometimes the most challenging and painful of human experiences. Our first role models for relationships are usually our parents. And before you decide to blame your parents for your failed relationships, remember they got their relationship “software” from their parents, who got theirs from their parents, and so on. Blaming your parents or others for your relationship difficulties just reinforces the problem. When you blame others for your problems you establish and/or reinforce a victim mentality at the subconscious level. This program says that other people and forces control your life. With beliefs like that you can see why you attract people and situations that make life difficult. The subconscious mind is simply programmed to recognize and attract what is familiar, not necessarily what is desirable. When you list all the qualities you want in a relationship partner be sure you possess those qualities yourself in order to attract them!

    Sample Beliefs:

    1. It’s easy for me to give love to others.

    2. It’s easy for me to receive love from others.

    3. I am worthy of an intimate, passionate relationship.

    4. I am ready for a powerful, intimate relationship in my life now.

    5. I am willing to risk loving and being loved.

    6. It’s okay for me to express my truth in a relationship.

    7. It’s okay for me to grow and change in a relationship.

  • Are subconscious beliefs sabotaging your... Prosperity?

    Beliefs that limit your personal prosperity are frequently embedded in the subconscious mind. Often our early religious training or parental conditioning create beliefs that are counterproductive to achieving wealth and financial freedom. Beliefs such as “Money is the root of all evil,” “Poverty is a virtue,” “Money is power and power corrupts,” or “You don’t deserve to have lots of money,” are self-limiting when it comes to meeting your financial goals. Beliefs can not only impede the accumulation of money, they can undermine the management of that money even if you accumulate it. It’s a case of spending it as fast, or faster than you make it! If you find yourself making one bad investment decision after another, it is very likely that you have self-limiting subconscious beliefs about money. Beliefs about not deserving to have lots of money are often at the bottom of poverty consciousness. While some people are able to overcome their limiting subconscious beliefs using will power and sheer determination, they often pay a very high emotional and/or physical price for doing so. There is an easier and more effective way!

    Sample Beliefs:

    1. I trust myself to manage money honestly and sensibly.

    2. It is okay for me to want money and I do want it.

    3. I enjoy making lots of money and spending it.

    4. I can make all the money I need doing a job that I love.

    5. I deserve to have all the money I need.

    6. Money is one expression of my spirituality, and my love for God, myself, and others.

    7. It is okay to have more money than I need.

  • Are subconscious beliefs sabotaging your... Health?

    Our health is the foundation of our lives. As the quote above suggests, our minds and bodies are linked in a dialogue that can create health or disease. Western science is finally acknowledging this link between our beliefs and our health and is beginning to study its ramifications for health care in the United States. Other cultures, including the Chinese, Polynesian, Native American, etc., have been using this connection of mind and body for centuries.

    Our beliefs have been linked to obesity, heart disease, arthritis, and cancer, as well as other autoimmune diseases. Weight loss has become a multi-billion dollar industry in the United States. Unfortunately, much of what is being offered is ineffective and sometimes even harmful. One of the most important elements overlooked in diet and exercise plans is the impact of our subconscious beliefs. Issues of self-esteem, self-love and sexuality can have powerful effects on weight gain as well as our ability to take it off and keep it off! To reshape your body you may need to reshape your thoughts about it.

    An entire spectrum of scientific studies support the findings that there is a “disease-resistant” as well as a “self-healing” personality. People with these personality traits enjoy better health than the population at large. Some of these traits are: enthusiasm, alertness, responsiveness, curiosity, security, self-esteem, and contentment. Additional qualities and attributes of healthy people are the ability to express anger, resolve fears, manage loss, forgive self and others, and to see the world filled with hope. Healthful traits are supported by healthful subconscious beliefs.

    While the statements below represent only a small sample of the beliefs that may be affecting your health, they will provide a quick check to see if these subconscious beliefs are supporting your health or sabotaging it.

    Sample Beliefs:

    1. My body heals itself naturally and quickly.

    2. I accept health as being a natural part of my life.

    3. I am a good person and deserve to have a healthy body.

    4. I love and accept my body as it is, and as it changes.

    5. I trust my body to achieve and maintain its ideal weight.

    6. I treat my body like royalty.

    7. I feel safe, secure, and confident when my body is slim and trim.

  • Are subconscious beliefs increasing your... Sense of grief and loss?

    Loss is inevitable; how you respond to it is optional. Whether you lose a loved one, a relationship, or a job, most people feel some degree of grief when such an event occurs. In the case of the loss of a loved one, especially a spouse or a child, the feeling of loneliness and concern for the future can be emotionally devastating. While grief is a normal and usually healthy response to loss, it can become unhealthy and counterproductive if allowed to persist for an inappropriate period of time. Many people believe that grief is not a feeling that can or should be changed and so must simply be endured for as long as it lasts, regardless of the detrimental effects on the life of the person grieving.

    Different cultures have different expectations and ways of dealing with grief. For example, the Egyptians expected that when a prominent person died, his or her spouse and sometimes their servants would be buried with them. By contrast, in a typical New Orleans style funeral, the procession to the grave site is a somber and mournful acknowledgment of death. However, the procession from the grave site is a celebration of life! There are countless examples of people who have turned a tragedy into inspiration, making the world a better place. They are the people who can “make lemonade out of lemons.” So, even grieving a significant loss can be dramatically impacted by your perceptions and beliefs.

    Following are a few examples of beliefs that promote a healthy response to the grieving process.

    Sample Beliefs:

    1. I release all guilt, shame, and blame resulting from my past thoughts and actions.

    2. I forgive myself for love and affection I withheld in anger from myself and others.

    3. I fill my mind with positive, nurturing, and healing thoughts.

    4. I acknowledge my feelings as a necessary part of my healing process.

    5. I know when it is time to let go, and I do.

    6. Everything happens in Divine Order.

    7. I have faith in myself and my future.
