At a time when intentions manifest at warp speed and our every expression reflects our inner world with perfect transparency, it is a good time to visit the beliefs that determine the shape and form of the realities we manifest. Our beliefs narrow or expand our field of potentials and determine the timelines we will move along. As we move further into the new time, the power of our beliefs becomes more profound than ever before.
Beliefs are filters we place on reality. Everyone holds beliefs about themselves, about others, the nature of reality and the universe. Some beliefs empower us while others disempower us. The good news is that it’s just as easy to hold an empowering belief as it is to hold a disempowering one. It’s just as easy to believe in a world that radiates the unlimited love and blessings of spirit as it is to believe in a world where pain, suffering and struggle are our fate.
Shining the Light of Awareness on Beliefs
You can examine your beliefs to see if you hold any that are holding you down. For a time you may choose to become a detective of your life to shine the light of your awareness on your beliefs. Ask yourself what you believe about your potentials and your love-ability. Ask yourself what you believe you deserve.
It is also helpful to ask yourself how you see others and the world around you. Do you believe others love and support you, or do you believe others use you toward their own ends and abandon you when you need them most? Do you believe the saying that ‘no good deed goes unpunished’ or do you believe the good you do returns to you tenfold?
Do you believe in the divine wisdom of the universe or do you believe you are a hapless pawn in the hands of a hostile and punishing god? Are you a victim or an empowered being who creates your own realities? The identities you hold offer important clues to your beliefs.
Your Beliefs are Real and True for You
Any belief you hold is real and true for you. If you believe you’re unloved, you will live your life as if this is true. If you believe you’re loved for the unique qualities you possess as a human being, you will feel loved and you will live your life accordingly. When you feel loved you will love. When you love, you open the door for more love to flow into your life.
Testing the Beliefs you Hold
There are some simple tests you can apply to your beliefs. One way to tell if you have beliefs that don’t serve you is to hold a belief in awareness and ask yourself if the belief empowers you to reach the highest and best in the universe or does it bind you to dense realities that limit and disempower you? Pay attention to your feeling state when you focus on the realities your beliefs create. Do you feel angry or agitated or do you feel happy and at peace?
Here is another test. Imagine you’re holding a belief in your hand. Does it feel heavy and leaden or do you feel yourself lift off the ground as you hold it? What brings you down is a belief you can let go of. What lifts you up is a belief that holds the power to lift you to your highest potentials.
Everyone Deserves Love
One reason some hold disempowering beliefs is that they feel they don’t deserve to be loved and empowered. Unfortunately this is a core belief that can disable a lot of empowering beliefs. The solution to this is simple: adopt the belief that each person, as a spark of spirit, is deserving of the best the universe has to offer. Each person inherently deserves unconditional love and the blessings of the universe. So long as you sincerely believe good things are the birthright of every person, you’ll be able to extend this belief to yourself as well. When you believe you deserve the best the universe has to offer, each day becomes a joyful journey along timelines where you experience ever expanding realms of love and bliss.
