One of my favorite authors is John Assaraf. I’ve read his books and am on his email list. For me, what he says resonates with my beliefs.
On that note, I recently picked up his book that we got a few years ago, The Answer, and am rereading the section on the Neural Reconditioning Process. He asks this question: ‘How do you know what your beliefs are?’.
Good question, since, as he writes, ‘We swim in them all the time, so much so that they are typically invisible to us’.
So how do you know what you believe? Actually there is a simple answer. Just look at your life. What do you see? Whatever you find, there’s evidence of your beliefs. Your current life–relationships, health, lifestyle, where you work, where you play, what you do every day–is an accurate reading of the picture you’ve been holding in your nonconscious brain.
Are you thinking there is never enough… time? Never enough… money? Guess what belief you are holding? And perhaps you are thinking, ‘Well, not now, but there will be soon, eventually, someday’. Unfortunately, to your nonconscious, there is no past and future, only the present moment, right now!
According to Assaraf, the first step is to accept the fact that you are in the driver’s seat: Your life is your creation, and the principal tool you have used to create it is your beliefs.
If you want to change things, then decide what beliefs you want to have.
What do you believe about this work? Do you agree? Have you found some truth here that you can relate with? Personally, I can. I believe that this information is right on. I can see how it has worked in my life. So, for me… lots of room for correcting some of my beliefs and something he doesn’t mention here, but perhaps obvious… self-talk!
Let me know what you think. Would really like to know.
