Uncover Your Limiting Beliefs and Mental Blocks -Part 1By
Uncovering your limiting beliefs and mental and emotional blocks will involve some conscious effort on your part. The way you choose to do this is entirely up to you. I have outlined here a technique which I have used and found very effective.
First of all state the intention to become aware of these ‘road blocks’. By telling your subconscious mind that you are willing to start examining what’s going on inside your mind, you are giving it a signal to start bringing these things to your attention.
The first method is to create a list.
Take a clear piece of paper (or empty word document). For each of the items on the list below begin to write as many things as come up:
- I am:
- I should:
- People are:
- Men are:
- Women are:
- Kids are/should:
- Parents are/should:
- I always:
- I never:
- Others see me as:
- My parents think I am:
- I am bad at:
- I can’t:
- I will never:
- Life is:
- The world is:
- I am afraid of/to:
- Abundance is:
- Money is:
- Time is:
- Scarcity is:
- Opportunities are:
- If …then…: (for example: IF I work hard then I’ll be successful).
Do not think too much about what you are writing, and definitely do not judge yourself in the process. Write down as many as you can. You may not think you have so many for each subject, but give it some time (even over a few days) and you will be amazed at how many of these “truths” you carry around with you.
Notice during the days ahead every time you start a sentence with one of those statements and write it down. If you find yourself making statements which do not appear on the list feel free to add those to your list.
By the end of the week you should have a notebook full of sentences.
