Kids Believe and Internalize What Is Told to Them
An unloving parent would say, “You’ll never amount to anything”, so a kid will believe it because they are young and vulnerable! Behavioral scientists say children do this to age 6 or so. We were just little kids when this happened to us. So many children have been made to feel unworthy of love! Anything an important person says; they consider it true.
A belief is a thought you keep thinking
Abraham-Hicks said, “A belief is a thought you keep thinking”. We think about it through the years and believe it. We watch our lives go down the tubes because of these beliefs. We unconsciously act out the words spoken over us. We self-sabotage because we don’t believe we can be successful. Why don’t we believe in our success? It is because we were told we wouldn’t amount to anything and we believed it deep down inside! The sad part is that we don’t realize this is what we are doing to ourselves.
You can change your beliefs and patterns of behavior.
These beliefs must be changed. Behavioral scientists have studied this sort of thing for decades. Self-sabotage is serious business. You can change your beliefs and patterns of behavior. We must not let the words of unthinking parents ruin our lives. We cannot allow our lives to be less than they could be.
You Receive What You Believe.
This is a truth which must be seriously considered. Think of all the times you wanted to do something but couldn’t. Let’s say you were a kid playing the piano at the recital for parents. If you were believing you would make a mistake and fearful that you would screw up, the ultimate thing happens. You missed a note! You think everyone can tell you screwed up. You believed you could not play the piece perfectly and that is what happened. You received what you believed.
So now, contemplate these things and ask for Divine help in overcoming the negativity you accumulated during your lifetime. Learn to take a moment or two and think this over. See yourself clearing all this out of your consciousness and feel emotionally how good it would feel if you were rid of false beliefs from childhood.
We create by thoughts, words, and intentions.
If you believe you are going to have a bad life, or a bad performance, or a bad marriage, this is what you will create. You will unconsciously visualize your belief in your mind. You will also unconsciously set up circumstances to sabotage the good life, or a good performance, or a good relationship. I bet you think it was the old stinker you’re having trouble with. Well, you must admit it, you could have done things differently, right? You could have been nicer, more loving, less critical and so forth. Of course, the other person could also have been much better.
We are created in the image of our Creator, so we also create.
According to the teachings of Abraham, “with everything we do, think, or say, we are creating”. Just think of a nice Thanksgiving dinner all the brothers and sisters get together laughing and talking with parents and grandparents. That sounds like so much fun. But, what if one person makes a cutting comment? What if you respond poorly and make a cutting comment of your own? You have created this scenario. The other person also created this scenario. If you both had chosen better words, or better responses, then the creation would’ve been different, right?
You can imagine the life you want.
Did you ever read any of the books by Dr. Wayne Dyer? He wrote a book about speaking “I AM words”. For instance, do you ever say things like this?
• I am so ugly! Replace it with “I am good looking when I fix up.”
• I am so stupid! Replace that lie with “I am smart, I spend time on my studies and get better every day.”
• I have no love in my heart. Change this to: “I am able to love. Love grows in my heart every day and I see reasons to love others, animals, and I even notice the beautiful trees and plants with love.”
Think about an attractive person you have seen in the past. Let’s say it’s a woman. Do you think she looks in the mirror, says “Oh no!” and gives up? No, she probably searches for makeup and creams that make her face beautiful. She probably spends time fixing her hair and finds just the right thing to create the inner image of the enhancement of her natural beauty. She has a desire to feel confident in her appearance instead of ashamed of ugliness. So, she focuses on the beauty she wants rather than the “plain Jane” she sees in the mirror.
Feel The Feelings
Dr. Dyer tells how the imagination is the greatest gift we have been given. In his book called Wishes Fulfilled, He said “You can imagine the life you want. Everything that now exists was once imagined.” Then, imagine the feelings of having already received the imagined thing you want. So, we don’t receive the changes we want by saying things like “I’m so ugly”.
We are to see what it is we are wanting, then, feel the feelings as if it has already been granted. In other words, we celebrate and feel amazing gratitude before we ever see our desire in actuality.
Divine Solution: Close your eyes, concentrate. Feel as if you are speaking to your guardian angel, or guide, or God. Say something like this:
“I am learning more everyday about imagining what I want, then feeling vividly that I have it already. I do not allow myself to visualize the thing unwanted, but rather only what is desired”.
