You don’t get what you wish for in life, you get what you believe.
And that can be a tad scary at first because we have all these desires in life but we also often have conflicting belief systems that get triggered once we have a desire.
So if our belief system is not in alignment with our desire, we’ll cancel out our desire each time because the belief system is the dominating energy or force that has the most leverage in our experience.
Sometimes, this understanding makes people wonder, “Well, why go after my dreams then?”
But if we can understand the nature of a belief system, we can understand how to change it and put in its place a new belief that will support our most heart-filled desires.
Think of beliefs (and desires) as quantum energy waves – which are all potential! And that’s what everything on this planet is; a bunch of quantum particles and waves being manifested as matter.
Our beliefs have the ability to crystallize our thought waves into particles.
Because they are the expectations of how we see our world. We expect to see them in our life.
If you have a belief system that only “this can happen” or you want a boyfriend but believe, “I’m never going to find one.” Or you want to book an acting job but your belief is, “I’m not good enough,” the experiences in your life are going to bear out that belief system. You’ll keep missing the boyfriend and keep losing out on the job.
Science tells us that once a thing is observed it becomes the thing. So those beliefs become the very things that we keep observing in our experiences in life.
Beliefs have so much energy around them because we’ve been carrying them around unchecked for such long periods of time that their job is to protect us and continue to create our world the way our belief system is built to believe. Its job is to serve us the way we want (subconsciously) to be served.
Of course, this is what’s maddening about life! A higher part of us wants these things we desire. We want to live a glorious life with creative victories and a lover to share them with and the ability to take a trip to the South of France.
But our belief systems do their subconscious work and keep us missing those desires we crave because the belief is embedded in our core.
This is why creating often feels haphazard, at best. Yes, sometimes our desires do manifest, just by the sheer tenacity of our willpower and perseverance. But there often seems to be such a struggle in many areas that we consciously feel should be easier to achieve.
Look at the history of humanity. Prevailing beliefs win out until someone comes along to challenge the dominating belief system. The world was flat until someone challenged that belief system. (Thank God for the Greeks and Eratosthenes who was ahead of his time, but no one listened anyway.) The earth was the center of the solar system, until Copernicus developed the sun-centered model.
So take heart. If the most stubborn of belief systems eventually could be changed, then you can change yours.
A belief may seem inflexible, but all we have to do is take it out, rewire it and then reintroduce a new concept in its place. Sounds hard? Not really.
I’ll show you how next week.
When you begin to look at the world with its real challenges and tragedies – tsunamis, earthquakes, wars, famine — you hopefully can put your mental stuff into context and realize that most of what you consider “limitations,” simply aren’t.
We take them on as truth because we’ve been thinking them for such a long time that they become part of our neurological wiring.
But repetitive thought doesn’t make something truthful. It just makes it a belief.
So change the belief and your world will change.
The Dalai Lama says that, “Human life is rare and precious. Do not make it a cause of pain.”
It’s such a simple benediction.
When you contextualize your life – really begin to see it in relation to the entire universe we’re living in – you may realize that you simply have no more time to waste doing things, talking about things, and believing thing that don’t make you happy.
The writer/philosopher, Richard Bach, once said, “Argue for your limitations and you get to keep them.”
The more you talk about and give energy to your limitations, the more you complain about them and make them the predominant focus of your life, the more you experience them in your life.
Quantum Physics now proves it: a system returns the same energy as is put into it.
So change the channel your system is tuned into.
Turn it to channel “Winning.“
