Most of us want to improve our lives in one way or another. Usually, we want to improve our financial situation so we can have the “good things in life", however we define that. And of course most folks do desire to be healthy and fit despite the fact that it seems impossible at times.
So, we start a new business, get a new job, start a new diet, make resolutions, and in general try to DO things differently. And what happens? Sure things change for awhile, but usually it doesn't last long and we are back to “same old, same old". DOING things differently is good, but what, on a deeper level, causes us to do what we do?
It's no secret that if we are BEING angry, we can DO some rather hurtful things to others. And if we are BEING kind, caring and compassionate we can DO some amazingly wonderful feats. If we are BEING fearful, resentful or critical we might just DO something hurtful. If we are BEING supportive, loving and helpful, it's obvious that we are going to DO something good in our world. But what, on a deeper level, causes us to BE the way we are?
If we believe we are helpless victims with no control over what happens to us, it's bound to make us BE angry. If we believe that we are all worthwhile and deserving, we will BE kind and caring to those in need. If we believe that others are out to get us or are “not good enough" it is easier to lash out in a misguided attempt to protect ourselves or prove we're bigger/better/stronger. Bur what, on a deeper level, creates our beliefs?
Unfortunately, we usually believe what we are told to believe, often without question. We are told what to believe by our parents, teachers, doctors, religious leaders, and especially, the media. The problem here is that most of these beliefs are just that, beliefs. Not truths. The solution is to recognize that your beliefs are not necessarily true (especially if there is anything less than joy, abundance and harmony in your life) identify those beliefs, and then change them! But, on a deeper level, there is a little more to it.
Thoughts create beliefs, and beliefs create thoughts. Why is this important? We're going to learn a little about quantum physics here first.
Your body is made up of cells. These cells are in turn made up of molecules, which are made up of atoms, which are in turn made up of sub-atomic particles such as electrons. Everything is made up of large groups of sub-atomic particles which are rapidly flashing packets of energy. Because they are rapidly flashing, they can exist at various points in time and space.
They are not “objects". They are ‘probabilities of existence’ and at the same time ‘multiple existences’. They are also wave-like and particle-like at the same time. They are the ENERGY which everything, including our thoughts, is made of. It has been proven scientifically that these particles react the way the experimenter EXPECTS them to react. In other words, we are in control. Our thoughts and beliefs create our reality.
Therefore, it is necessary to change our thoughts and beliefs before we can create any kind of permanent change in our lives. After having spent a good amount of time trying to figure out how to do this, I've come up with two solutions that are easy and effective. One is EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and the other is hypnosis, both of which tap into the subconscious, but in different ways. Once the limiting beliefs are identified and the associated thoughts and beliefs are changed to ones which are more beneficial, you'll begin to see real changes in your life!
