It’s your underlying belief systems that shape your thoughts which, in turn, direct your awareness. And there is a fundamental and significant difference between a thought and a belief. You see, it’s your belief systems that direct your awareness. Awareness operates, in much the same fashion, as your car lights do at night. Even though there is a whole world out there in the darkness at night, you only see what your headlights, or belief systems, reveal. This is very similar to how your awareness operates. In awareness, however, your belief systems act as your headlights. In other words, your beliefs focus your awareness in the same way that your headlights direct your vision.
Although awareness gets programmed in many ways, the most powerful are what we call beliefs. A belief is something you hold onto because you KNOW it is true. But unlike a thought, which actually forms words or images in your brain, a belief system is generally silent. Our thoughts are much easier to manipulate and change because we are aware and conscious of them. It takes much longer to change a belief system. This is such an important point. Behind every thought lies the hidden program of belief. For example, if you don’t believe you can succeed at lifestyle change, you most likely won’t!
The truth is, if you don’t believe you can succeed, the battle is already lost. There is nothing more motivating or destructive than the power of belief. It can be your best friend or you worst enemy. The more aware you are of your underlying belief systems, however, the more powerful you become. And awareness is the key to creating that change. Awareness is like a beam of light in the dark room of your belief systems. It breaks through the darkness, shows the way and allows you to move with confidence. Today’s assignment has to do with awareness. Your mission: identify one belief inside you that holds you back in some way. Awareness is the first step toward change!
Wishing You Great Health!
