As you may know, I am a Core Belief Engineer Practitioner. What that means is that I help my clients identify and work through limiting beliefs so they can live the life they really want.
Why are beliefs so important? Your beliefs create your reality. For example: everybody has an “uncle” who goes on and on about getting ripped off, and normally he may, indeed, get ripped off. In comparison, I believe the world is inherently a trustworthy place. Why? Because even though I have lost my wallet several times I have always had it returned – untouched. So, while it is interesting to see why my uncle views the world the way he does, my experiences make me see the world completely differently. It is because of our experiences and our realities that create how we see our world (our beliefs). These beliefs become the lens in which we see the world from.
Once we work through our blocks (our beliefs) we can work to live the life we really want.
So, how do we do that? One of tools I use with my clients is to look for words that help us identify our beliefs. For example, “These are my…” morals, rules, principles, ethics, values, opinions, etc. The words you use identify your beliefs.
The value in identifying beliefs is that sometimes we discover that our beliefs are outdated and are not working for us anymore.
What words identify your beliefs? Did I miss some? Leave a comment, tweet me or visit my Facebook page and let me know. In the upcoming weeks I am going to talk more about how changing your beliefs can create a better reality and how working with a Core Belief Engineer is different from working with other types of therapists.
