Beliefs are ideas that we take and assume to be true.
They are not the truth, but our way of perceiving what we experience.
Let us suppose that it is as if we were wearing glasses through which we see the world and ourselves, and consequently, the reality we project.
An approach to become aware is that the importance of our reality is not in what happens, but in how I interpret, what I feel and what I am saying to myself, regarding what happens.
There are two types of beliefs: the toxic or limiting ones (those that condition us, convict, prevent us from advancing and harm us), and the healthy or empowering ones (that remind us of our true potential and help us open up to possibilities).
If we want to transform or liberate those beliefs, we must begin by recognizing them, accepting them and by being willing to stop identifying with them.
We can begin to release them with a simple: “Thank you for participating” or “I don’t know, I don’t know anything”…
The key is to detect them and to let them go.
By refusing to remain attached to them we make room for a new vision and open the way for healthier and empowering ones.
Observe: What kind of beliefs do you nourish in your daily life, giving them your energy and attention? What kind of ideas have more power over you and your way of life?
