It’s amazing how much of our actions, reactions and functioning comes from unconscious core beliefs. These beliefs were set in place when we were very young, around the ages of 4 to 8 and dictate a lot of how we see and interact with the world.
After being told we have to eat at a certain time for years, we start to believe we cannot trust our bodies signals on when we are hungry. We’re shown love only after we do what we’re told and scolded when what we’re doing joyfully doesn’t align with what those in charge want us to be doing and when. After experiencing this for years, we start to let go of the idea of unconditional love and start to believe in condition-based love.
To be clear, this is no one’s fault, it’s just how society is and has been for thousands of years.
We have to develop a new way of being that coincides with the societal beliefs around us. So we start agreeing with untruths to fit in to society. We begin to believe we are not good enough as we are. We believe that we’re not worthy of love or success. We believe that people won’t love us if we’re simply ourselves and that we need to behave in certain ways to deserve love, etc., etc.
The good news is we can change these core beliefs. We can go within, understand what is causing us to experience the sorrow and disconnect that most people feel and then choose something different. Our core beliefs are simply an agreement we made to believe in something at a young age with limited experience in this world. We can look into this agreement, apply the logic and understanding we’ve developed over our life and encode a new belief system.
Once we understand that people were trying to get us to eat at a certain time because people down here believe in this
You can change the agreements inside. The core beliefs aren’t set in stone, they’re just agreed to. They can be changed by going inside and choosing to believe in something more empowering and peaceful. How do you think your life would change if you truly believed you are enough, you are loved unconditionally and that you are worthy just by being you! Exciting huh?
