In order to help ourselves discover the spiritual essence of who we are, one of the things we need to examine is our beliefs.
Therefore, let’s discuss the power of our beliefs. We saw a friend of ours over the Thanksgivings holidays. He has been through the Unlimited Futures Personal Growth Program, and he wanted to tell us about how his intuition has expanded and about some experiences he has had. He has been able to create many things for himself, but one story that he told us seemed like a great way to help all of us understand the power of our beliefs.
He explained that he has been able to create a lot of things that he wants in his life even though he has not been working with the UF process on a daily basis. He told us that he had a friend that was very sick and he wanted to do something to help, so he prayed for her recovery. Then it came to him that if he wanted to be sure of her recovery he must give up something else that was very important to him in order to be sure of her recovery. So he agreed to give up a big business contract that he really wanted and it seemed that he would get, for the assurance that his friend would recover. He felt good about his decision, and it turned out just the way he thought it would. He lost the business contract, but his friend recovered.
He told his wife and her parents about what he had done, and they told him that he could have had both. He did not believe that was possible. Who was right?
Actually they were both right. It is our beliefs that create our experiences. He could have had both had he been able to accept both, but he was not able to do that, therefore that was not a possibility for him. He firmly believed that he must sacrifice something to get what he wanted most. That belief made that true for him.
This is what happens in all of our lives. Whatever we believe makes that belief true for us. Unfortunately, we are usually unaware of the beliefs that create our limitations. These beliefs get programmed into our thinking when we are very young most of the time. It is just a part of our learning how life works, and we never even become conscious about what many of our limiting beliefs are. The people who are teaching us are simply passing on information that they have been taught.
As we grow sometimes we realize that we really do not want our lives to be the same as that of the people who taught us. Yet it is still a challenge to separate the beliefs that are helpful from those that are not helpful. Even if we become aware that some of our beliefs are limiting and not helping us create what we want, no matter how hard we try, we still are not able to change them.
In order to be able to change our beliefs we need to have a strong nervous system. Even if we know that beliefs are just information that we have accepted as truth, they do not just go away due to this awareness. They keep popping up until we become strong and clear enough to see that there are laws of nature or principles of life that governs how we create our experiences, and clearly understand how they work. Only then are we able to clearly see how life works and at that point the limiting beliefs no longer have a hold on us, they simply disappear. At this point we move into a whole new world of function and experience.
That is what makes the Unlimited Futures programs so different from other self help programs. We not only give you the understanding of how to create the life you want for yourself, but we also provide you with a process for developing your ability to understand the laws of nature. Thereby making it possible for you to change your limiting beliefs, and actually live in harmony with these laws which makes it possible for you to create the life you want for yourself. It is not just a matter of knowing how to do it, it is a matter of being capable of doing what is necessary.
We must discover the essence of our own spirituality. We must discover that we are creating our own experiences, and not only that, but how we create our experiences. The first law of nature that we discover is that everything in existence is Love expressing intelligently through energy. Next week I will expand on this law of nature and what it means in your life.
In the meantime, I have described the Unlimited Futures process in detail and provided diagrams and step-by-step guidelines in my book on Personal Growth. I have also created a CD, DVD and a Companion Workbook for starting to work with the process. In addition we now have our Personal Growth and Development Core Course on DVD, so you can participate in this course in the comfort of your own home. Be sure to download our introduction to this course free before leaving the site.
Once you start experiencing this growth process, we also provide in-residence courses that you can attend to accelerate this natural evolutionary process.
