When you hear the word belief what does it make you think of? Chances are it is religious beliefs. For millennia religious wars have raged because people are intolerant of others belief systems and want theirs to be the one true belief. Religion is still used today by many people as a way to dominate and control others.
We are all aware that people can be very protective of their beliefs as they form the foundation of their lives and any challenge to them can be seen as threatening. But what many people do not realise is the power beliefs have to shape our lives in ways we are not consciously aware of.
The truth is you are all living in your own worlds created by your beliefs. These beliefs are based on your past experience, your conditioning, other people’s perceptions you have absorbed as your own and the collective unconscious. The part of our unconscious mind that’s derived from ancestral memory and experience that you regularly access in your dreams.
Rupert Sheldrake talks about Morphic Fields as energetic information that surrounds all life forms and control their characteristic activities through repetition of thought and behaviour. When we understand that our thoughts and behaviour are controlled by our beliefs. We can see how our beliefs contribute to our own Morphic Fields and the more energy we give those beliefs through repetition of living from them the more power they have over our lives.
You are a powerful creator
You are in fact a powerful creator who has created your world from your beliefs about yourself. But the good news is in the same way you’ve managed to create a life from your self-limiting beliefs. You can choose to shift your unconscious choices to conscious ones and create a life from positive beliefs about yourself. Close your eyes and imagine what that might look like?
Matrix Reimprinting helps you find those core self-limiting beliefs often created in childhood during an emotionally challenging or traumatic moment. As a child you are the centre of your world and need to have an explanation of why particular events happen to you. Often the reasons you create involve blaming yourself in someway. You decide you are not good enough, not lovable, not worthy, bad, wrong the list goes on. What you don’t realise as a child is from the moment the belief has been formed you begin creating your life from it.
Your beliefs are thought forms you send into the Matrix
The reason these beliefs are so powerful is because they are programmed into your subconscious mind and you have no conscious awareness of them in your day-to-day lives. In the quantum understanding of the universe everything is part of the divine Matrix, a field of energy transformation and manifestation that permeates and connects all life forms. Your beliefs are thought forms you send out into the matrix that you attract back as life experiences. In other words if you have a belief you are not good enough on a subconscious level you are constantly looking for validation of the truth of your belief so you can be ‘right’.
From a survival perspective this is a way of keeping you safe because you are still influenced by your ancestors fear of change as for them change was a real threat to their survival. The problem is when you act from your limiting belief it locks you into a cycle of limitation and restriction because every time you experience your belief being ‘true’ you reinforce it in your own Morphic field and the Matrix.
The only way to change those subconscious beliefs is by finding the memories where they originated. Releasing the emotional energy that is holding them in place in the Matrix and creating new positive beliefs.
Collapse the ‘table top’ of memories based on a self-limiting belief
It may seem a daunting prospect to go back to all those painful memories to clear them one by one. But with EFT and Matrix Reimprinting we use the table top metaphor to show that once you remove the table legs of the most emotionally intense memories. The whole table top of similar memories based on a particular belief collapses.
Once you connect with the power of the energetic universe within yourself. You are able to work with this energy in a proactive way, releasing pain and sadness and making space for new positive beliefs and the emotions they create. From this place you will find new pathways and directions begin to reveal themselves and as you open and expand your inner world you will find your outer world begins to do the same.
