The “Limiting Belief” Gap by Leslie Flowers

Cognitive reasoning background conceptYou could already be aware that our limiting beliefs reside in our subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind is not a place, but an activity present in each and every cell of our body. Limiting beliefs are paradigms – or clusters of habits that operate automatically. If someone says, “this is a bad economy” and our first thought is “yeh, it sure is,” the habit or limiting belief of lack (there isn’t enough to go around) responded rather than our making it a conscious choice. We could say, “how do you know that is true,” as example. Questioning, rather than automatically accepting information is how we create new, habits that serve us well.

As spiritual beings connected to all living things via our intuition, we each are born in perfect harmony with universal energy or our creator. The limiting beliefs of others become our own before we reach the age of reason (about 6) as we have no ‘conscious mind’ to accept or reject data. The subconscious mind, however cannot reject, and only accepts information.

A family passes down their limiting beliefs by discussing those beliefs in the presence of a child repeatedly. A family that believes as example,* dancing is a no-no, they don’t dance, they discuss how the family never has danced, why they don’t dance, what’s wrong with those that do dance, etc., and talk about it repeatedly for years, the child now has that limiting belief! An unsolicited gift, if you will, from those who love us and are quite unaware of the less than optimum influence this data has on our life. If we believe there isn’t enough to go around, there will not be enough to go around.

Limiting beliefs create a barricade, blocking access to the perfect harmony we knew as toddlers and our intuition. We want to get back to feeling our intuition and move to shut down our limiting beliefs by creating new ones that will ultimately have us realize that we each have limitless potential!

Julia (2) is my 3rd granddaughter and she spent the night with me last week. She made herself abundantly clear about what she wanted to do and would have no other answer but YES, unless perhaps I offered a new agreement that satisfied her desire for whatever it was. She had no limiting beliefs as to what was possible for her. She would not move on to another task until this one was settled to her satisfaction. She had limitless potential and acted like she was 12 feet tall!

What would our lives be like if we could have beliefs that supported our infinite potential?
If we gave up HOW we are going to do it and only considered WHY we WANT it?

Julia wanted it because JULIA WANTED IT and no other reason. You will be happy to know that it is not a difficult process to create new beliefs that supersede the old limiting ones. That is what my work is all about.

If time and money were not an issue, what would you want?

Forget about how you would get it or that it is something you need.

What do you really want? Do you know that you may have anything you want as long as you do not violate the rights of others? Now there’s a belief system for you!
