How to Harness The Power of Beliefs
How to Harness The Power of Beliefs
First of all, we must be clear about what a belief is. A belief is pretty much a thought you keep thinking. If you understand the Law of Attraction then you will understand how powerful beliefs are in creating your reality. Your beliefs determine the way you act and respond to every event in your life. It has been said that your outer world is simply a reflection of your beliefs.
Throughout this article I will be directly quoting Seth, a very wise entity as chanelled through Jane Roberts in their book, “The Nature of Personal Reality.” If you would like to read this, or any of their other books I will give you more information about how you can do this, at the end of this article.
Another very powerful definition of a belief, as dictated by Jane Roberts for Seth is “anything that you think of as absolute truth is a belief that you hold.” Seth goes on to say, “Your beliefs form your reality, your body and its condition, your personal relationships, your environment, and en masse your civilization and world.”
Remember, you must always keep an open mind! As Seth says, “You form the fabric of your experience through your own beliefs and expectations. You take your beliefs about reality as truth, and often do not question them. They are not recognized as beliefs about reality, but instead considered characteristics of reality itself. Frequently such ideas appear indisputable, so a part of you that it does not occur to you to speculate about their validity. They become invisible assumptions, but they nevertheless color and form your personal experience. Some people, for example, do not question their religious beliefs but accept them as fact. Others find it comparatively easy to recognize such inner assumptions when they appear in a religious context, but are quite blind to them in other areas.”
You must never forget what Seth says next, “Your conscious mind is always trying to give you a clear picture, but you often allow preconceived ideas to block out this intelligence”
But don’t worry, Seth goes on to explain that you can change your limiting beliefs and how to go about doing it. “Your beliefs can be like fences that surround you. You must first recognize the existence of such barriers—you must see them or you will not even realize that you are not free, simply because you will not see beyond the fence. They will represent the boundaries of your experience. There is one belief, however, that destroys artificial barriers to perception, an expanding belief that automatically pierces false inhibiting ideas:
The Self Is Not Limited.
There are No Boundaries or Separations of the Self.
You Make Your Own Reality.”
This is the most powerful belief you can have. This one belief will do more for you than any positive thinking, meditation, yoga, or any other practice.
Personally when I first read this I wrote out this belief, in capital letters, on a large piece of paper. Then I hung this on my bedroom door. Everytime I entered or left my room, I would repeat this belief to myself. It is very empowering, and I recommend you make it one of your beliefs too.
You must begin to remove all your limiting beliefs and replace them with true, expanding beliefs (such as the one above). Remember, nobody can change your beliefs for you, you must change them for yourself. Also, nobody can force beliefs on you, unless you allow them to (consciously or unconsciously). But you must be absolutely certain that you can change your beliefs and you must be willing to try!
“You are not your ideas, nor even your thoughts. You are the self who experiences them.”

I have used many excerpts from the book “The Nature of Personal Reality” by Jane Roberts and Robert Butts, because their books (called the Seth books) are one of the most powerful sources for knowledge on any metaphysics topic. If you are interested in these books click here. © Jason Randhawa 2006
