What is a Limiting Belief?
A limiting belief is a state of mind or belief about yourself which restricts you in some way.
Who Has Limiting Beliefs? (Spoiler: Everyone)
If everyone suffers from limiting beliefs, what sets people apart? What makes certain people so successful and others not?
The answer is that it all comes down to their beliefs.
Many of our beliefs are tucked away and hidden in our subconscious minds, and we don’t even realize we are tied so tightly to them. People with challenges and struggles in life can always find some limiting beliefs that prevent them from living a life full of ease.
Jean explains that limiting beliefs create an obstacle that says, “You don’t deserve this. This won’t work for you.”
Atman also maintains that when we can see those obstacles, we can actively choose something different for ourselves in spite of our predisposition for limiting beliefs. Furthermore, once we unearth those limiting beliefs, we can easily unpack them and create an improved way of living.
Optimize How You Clear Your Limiting Beliefs
According to Atman, when you think about your beliefs or thoughts, it evokes an emotion. In turn, your emotions then produce a powerful energy which surges through your body.
People have trouble overturning their old belief systems because it is literally a part of their natural energy.
Admittedly, energy and beliefs can seem so abstract. Therefore, the first step to solving this is recognizing that you’re not in the place that you want to be.
If you are in a state of suffering, worrying, etc., you’re working through a limiting belief. Awareness of this and the wisdom that it doesn’t have to be is extremely important. When you know it, you can see it and start to unpack it.
Awareness is key.
Intention: Your Most Powerful Tool
Intention is a powerful assistant for us.
What are your thoughts? Are you suffering? From what are you suffering? What is the root cause of your limiting belief? Find it, label it, and accept it for what that emotion or action is. Once that emotion is labeled, a plan can be put in place to circumvent your suffering.
We tend to find evidence of why things can’t work. We get caught up in the hows, whys, and what-ifs. That stops forward movement. If we can stunt our over-excessive thinking, we can feel into what feels right and true to us.
We have ease, and we have abundance. We have everything we need already within us.
The only thing that keeps us from those things is believing that we don’t have them. So understand the lies and limitations for what they are: lies and limitations. Your brain might be saying they are a giant part of you. But they are not you. They are feelings, and feelings can be labeled. Understand them, accept them, and move forward knowing they are part of you but you are not your thoughts.
This will change your energy and change your vibration.
If you’re vibrating at a place of fear and worry, then you’re cultivating and creating more of that in your life experience. So if you can stunt that and think, “I’m going to choose not to feel that way,” you will see the results you want to see.
The outcome you desire might take a little time because of the hard work you need to invest, but if we have patience knowing that we changed our thoughts and emotions, the rest is coming.
So we just need to be patient and wait to see the results of that.
Tap Into What You Actually Want
Atman knows that changing thoughts is easier said than done. Unfortunately, an old version of us always tries to pull us back into the fear and lack mentality.
The secret is tapping into what we want.
We need to get clear on where we want to go because a lack of direction causes a sense of fear which can ignite the nervous system. When our nervous system is aflame with fear and doubt, we stay contracted.
Meditation is an effective tool to combat this form of contraction because it allows you to center your world and focus on your goals. If you acknowledge your limiting beliefs, but label them for what they are and place them in the appropriate mental bin, you can understand what’s happening inside yourself. As such, you can make positive changes which will lead you to success.
Change has to happen within. So the more you understand yourself and what’s going on inside, the easier you can make a change.
How To Stay Consistent With Your Personal Growth
Once you understand where you want to go, pick that goal and stay consistent before moving on to the next. You will be surprised at how quickly things can shift for you.
Atman notes the old methods of deep transformational work used to be like a purge.
Now, according to Atman, we don’t have to re-walk through trauma to heal it. When we clear our energy, all the emotions attached to our past trauma flow out.
We don’t need to do talk therapy and get into all the trauma, the hurt, and the pain. We can remove the energy and the associated emotions around it become neutralized.
We can do much more efficiently than what used to take months or years to heal.
The awareness of something can radically shift the energy around it.
