The choices we make determine our experiences and our beliefs determine the kind of choices we make. We have been programmed to believe certain things, and most of our beliefs were programmed into our minds before we were six years old. They are the things our parents and the people around us believed when we were growing up. Since that time many things have changed in our lives and we have many insights that were not available to our parents, but still unless we stop and question our beliefs we are still making choices dependent upon those beliefs, and those beliefs are affecting our perception.
I am reading an excellent book entitled Harnessing the Power of the Mind for Healing by Susi Roos, and in it she tells us about an experiment done with cats were one group of cats were raised in an environment with only horizontal planes and another group were raised in an environment with only vertical planes. When they were moved into a typical room with both planes present each group saw only what was available in the environment where they were raised. They would literally bump into or fall off anything that was created from the opposite plane. They literally did not see the other plane, for them it simply did not exist.
The same thing happens for us, we unknowingly limit what we accept into our perceptual field based on our expectations, conditioning and beliefs.
Everyone tells us that in order to change our lives we must change our beliefs, whether it is religion or self-help programs. They all tell you to do something that you are most likely not able to do. It simply doesn’t work to just say I want to change my beliefs. Those beliefs are programmed in the pathways of our minds or the energy that makes up our minds and bodies.
We now know that everything on the physical level of life is energy, including our minds and bodies. Therefore, in order to change our beliefs we must be able to change the energy that makes up our mind/body system. Until we are able to change that energy we are not even aware of most of our beliefs, much less how they are affecting our lives.
Scientists have also discovered that it is consciousness that moves and forms the energy into everything we see and experience.
Fortunately, many years ago, I discovered a process that releases stress and strengthens our nervous systems which makes it possible for us to refine the energy of the mind/body system and discover the laws of nature or principles of life that governs how we create our experiences. As the mind/body energy is refined it becomes capable of merging with universal intelligence or all knowledge. At this point we can clearly see and understand life doesn’t work the way we had believed it did in the past. This is a part of the evolutionary process of mankind.
Just as it took some time to program our present mind set, it will also take some time to become aware of the power we have deep within ourselves to take charge of our lives and create them the way we want them to be, but it is definitely possible and the only hope we have for changing our beliefs so we are then capable of changing our experiences.
It is our consciousness that forms the experiences in our lives and we have a choice, we can stay functioning from the level of our old beliefs or we can discover a much more advanced level of consciousness and functioning.
I was taught to believe that I could never win a lottery and to buy a ticket was simply a waste of money, so therefore, I never buy lottery tickets or of course, win any money. However, I just read an article in the paper about a lady who won a lottery of $112 million dollars. You may have seen it. She said that she visualized that she would win it, and knew exactly what she would do with the money. She not only visualized winning the lottery, but she totally believed that she would win it. So, you see it is all a matter of what we can see and believe.
What is possible for you? It is possible for all of us to refine the energy in the mind/body system and change the beliefs that are blocking our ability to create the kind of life we want. One of the principles of life that we work with in our courses is that “Beliefs are simply information that we have accepted as truth”, but until we are capable of changing our beliefs we will continue to experience whatever we believe.
I have described the process for refining the energy of the mind/body system and changing your beliefs in my book on how your beliefs are affecting your life experiences, entitled Unlimited Futures: How to Understand the Life You Have and Create the Life You Want. I have also created a CD, DVD and a Companion Workbook to help you get started. Once you begin to experience the changes taking place in your life, you will want to get our Personal Growth and Development Core Course. You can get more information on that course by clicking on www.unlimitedfutures.org/products . You can also download an introductory session of the core course absolutely free . You simply click on the box that gives you that option on any page of our web site.
Once you start experiencing this growth process we also provide, in residence, courses to accelerate this natural evolutionary process.
