Today I talk about how your beliefs determine your behavior, and how far we’re willing to go when we believe in something. I also answer an email about someone who can’t find work and is worried about falling back into depression. [Read more…]
When you were a child, whatever fear came up, you figured out a way to survive the moment. These survival skills were very handy in adolescence simply because they worked to keep us alive!
Sure, we probably weren’t going to die, but it felt like it! Then, years later we became adults (well, some of us did 😉 ), and soon we were put into situations that caused similar fears and once again, that old survival mentality kicked back in.
Our brains went, “Oh yeah, I know how to get through this! I learned it as a child, this is an easy one. I’ll just… (fill in the blank).” We took the belief system we developed as children into our adult world and suddenly we feel stress and pain and hurt, and all kinds of things we didn’t expect.
That’s because we stuck to the old system of beliefs we created as children. And these beliefs are deep, so it’s no wonder we rarely question what we believe. But, isn’t it time to do just that? Especially if the results you are getting in life simply aren’t what you expected them to be?

What you perceive to be true and what is actually true aren’t always the same.

A convenient belief is something you believe to be true, whether it actually is or not. It is a belief that is convenient for you because it serves a purpose in your life. A good example is distance healing. Sending your thoughts, prayers, positive vibes, or “healing energy” long distance to help someone heal may sound a bit ludicrous to some people. But for those who practice it, and can cite amazing results from doing it, they have no doubt it works.
So the question is: If the results are positive, does it matter if you can’t scientifically prove the process? [Read more…]
