Belief Busting is a process I use to bust beliefs that aren’t working for me and then replacing that belief with one that is in line with my Spirit.
While I’m feeling bad or feeling what are referred to as negative emotions, I’ll see what beliefs I have that are making me feel that way. When I find it, I acknowledge that it is clearly not serving me because it’s making me feel bad. Usually, I then replace it with a belief that feels better.
I was feeling really sad and then feeling enraged, and I discovered I had the belief, “I deserve to be punished and to suffer for being myself.” (I started to laugh hysterically because I saw the absurdity of it!) Then, I replaced that belief with its opposite. I affirmed, “I deserve to be celebrated and to feel really good about being myself.” What a difference and what a shift! That same night, I talked to a good friend, who affirmed my new affirmation. In our conversation, he reflected back to me the shift that had taken place!
I begin to doubt myself about starting my blog. I was believing, “I think too highly of myself. It’s not okay to want to be successful and there is something wrong with thinking this way.” I realized that I took on the beliefs of other people’s opinions and judgments which have nothing to do with me. (I had a good laugh about that as well.) Then, I replaced those beliefs with the affirmation, “I think highly of myself and that’s okay!!!” That felt soooo much better. A few seconds later, I got two comments from people saying how much they enjoyed this blog. So amazing! Life is so amazing and so good. It truly is a perfect reflection what you believe!
Here’s the thing.
The key to my seeing almost immediate results from belief busting was finding a thought that actually feels good.
Or, as Abraham-Hicks would say, “finding a better feeling thought”.
You may find that thinking the opposite thought of what you currently believe, like I did, just isn’t believable. And because it’s not believable to you, thinking it doesn’t feel good. It may actually makes you feel worse.
No worries and no problem. Find a thought that feels good to you. Sometimes I’ll start with the thought, ‘I want to feel good.’, or ‘I want to feel better right now.’ And in just acknowledging that, I feel better!
Life wants us to feel good. I wholeheartedly accept.
Happy Belief Busting!
