“Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.”

In my 1/24 post (“Building Beliefs”), I talked about beliefs, conscious and unconscious, and how those beliefs tend to shape the nature of reality around us.

They do this in a psychological way, by causing us to look for evidence that supports that belief, and therefore effects how we view and interact with the world. They also do this in a metaphysical way, by setting our energy fields to a vibration that attracts more of what we believe is so, and other things at the same vibration.

So, if you believe you’re born to win, you don’t necessarily win 100% of the time, but you do tend to win more than the average bear.

And if you believe that you’re a loser….


Let’s not go there.

Better to cultivate beliefs that support better things, people and experiences for you; ones that draw better things into your life.

But what about unconscious beliefs? How can you deal with beliefs you can’t even see that you have?

Well, there’s a few good techniques out there.

The six that I like best are

  • Watching your self talk;
  • Chosing who you listen to, and how much;
  • Positive thinking;
  • Affirmations;
  • Guided meditations;
  • Hypnosis; and
  • E.F.T. (Emotional Freedom Technique).

Any of these techniques can be used to clear out beliefs that sabotague you or do not serve you, and replace them with beliefs that serve you better. We’ll be looking at them in more detail in posts to come.

So, what beliefs would you like to change?…

Was reading a few blogs the other day, and ran across one where the blogger was talking about the movie “Inception” and the nature of dreams. He noted that, at one point, during a gun battle, DiCaprio’s gun isn’t having the desired impact.  In response, his colleague tells him to use a little imagination, and as an example, he pulls out…a somewhat bigger gun. 

The blogger felt that was anticlimactic , because,with a dream, you could make almost anything happen.

Fair enough, that.

But it got me thinking….

What could you do if your mind didn’t tell you that it wasn’t possible?

I’d say that the bigger gun mentally worked for the agent in the movie because it was within his context of what  was actually possible. In dreams, you could do anything but, for many people, something that was too far out of their mental construct of possible would trigger mental resistance and block the whole arrangement

So he could accept a bigger gun, and there it was…

We see the same thing in the energywork of manifestation. Theoretically, anything is equally possible, and it’s as easy to manifest a diamond as a parking space, but most folks have mental limits that see the parking space as easy and the diamond as difficult.

And so they block the bigger item from coming into their lives.

This is why you see a lot of people who use the Law of Attraction to get good parking spaces, but very few lottery wins.

In the movie “the Matrix”,

  • The average mind accepts “reasonable” limits.
  •  The rebels are standouts because they accept as possible skills that reach the extraordinary end of normal human possibility.
  • The “Smiths” are deadly because they go beyond the limits of “normal” human possibility, but still follow natural limits.
  •  Neo is extraordinary, because, for him there are no limits…

And so, Neo can fly……

Food for thought.

What are your limits?

And, could you fly?….

Last time, we took a brisk tour of the conscious and unconscious minds, and what each one is responsible for.

We talked a bit about unconscious beliefs and how those beliefs can be affecting how you live your life even if you’re not aware of them.

So, how do those beliefs get there?

Well, it starts when you’re a baby….

As I mentioned in the last post, your conscious mind has the judgement. That includes the ability to weed through input and say “accept this idea” / “kick this one to the curb””.

The unconscious, on the other hand, has no judgement whatsoever. It accepts whatever we tell it as true. And, since the unconscious has 80% of the power , including the mind-body connection and most of the basic metaphysical/magickal/psychic/etc power, that can make for some challenging circumstances.

At worst, it’s like your unconscious mind is a very trusting toddler with a sub-machine gun…

Our unconscious creates  beliefs from the things we are told, and the lessons we chose to learn from the world around us.


  • some of those beliefs are not accurate,
  • some were accurate at the time but are no longer so,
  • some of them are dysfunctional,
  • some of them are things that were well-meant to protect us but end up limiting or harming us,
  • some conflict with each other,
  • some are negative, controlling or malevolent,

And the unconscious does it’s best to make each and every one of them come true.

For instance, if your family described you as “the clumsy one” , over time you’ll start tripping more and having more accidents, even if there’s nothing abnormal about your motor skills to start out with.

The unconscious hears “Oh, I’m clumsy…” and does it’s best to make it true.

Because these beliefs are hidden in the unconscious, we can’t see them, even though they may be causing wackiness or outright dysfunction in our lives.

So why would people who care about us program us for dysfunction?

For that matter, why would we do that ourselves (because that happens too…)?

Those words are on their way…
