A Belief is a thought that you keep thinking repeatedly. Your belief form reality. Both your individual belief and your joint belief create your situations, and circumstances. The intensity of a belief is extremely important. For example, if you believe that people mean you well, and will treat you kindly, they will, And, if you believe that the world is against you, then so it will be in your experience. F you believe that you will begin to deteriorate at 22 ,then so you shall, And, if you believe that you are poor, and always will be, then so your experience will to prove to you. Your beliefs meet you in the face when you look in the mirror.
Your beliefs form your image. You cannot escape your beliefs. They are, however, the method by which you create your experience. It is important that you here realize that you are not at the mercy of the unexplainable, that you are not at the mercy of events over which you have no contrast whether those events are psychological events or physical ones, in your team.
Examples of Limiting Beliefs;
- Life is a valley of sorrows.
- The body is inferior. A a vehicle of the soul it is automatically degraded, tinged. You may feel that the flesh is inherently bad or evil, that its petites are wrong. Christians may find the body deplorable, thinking that the soul descended into it “descent” automatically meaning the change from a higher or better condition to one that to worse. Followers of Eastern religions often feel it their duty, also, to deny the flees, to rise above it, so to speak, into a state where nothing is desired. Using a different vocabulary, they still believe that earth experience is not desirable in itself.
- I am helpless before circumstances that I cannot control.
- I am helpless because any personality and character were formed in infancy, and I am at the mercy of my post.
- I am helpless because I am at the mercy of events from post lives in other incarnations, over which I now have no control. I must be punished, or I am punishing myself for unkindness’s done to others in post lives. I must accept the negative aspects of my life because of my karma.
- People are basically bad, and out to get me.
- I have the truth and no one else has, or, my group has the truth and no other group has.

- My existence is dependent upon my experience in flesh. When my body dies my consciousness dies with it.

Seth’s Wisdom on Beliefs
“Your events, your lives, your experiences, are cused by your present beliefs, Change the beliefs and your life changes.”
“The human race is a stage though which various forms of consciousness travel. Before you can be allowed into systems of reality that are more extensive and open, you must first learn to handle energy, and see, through physical materialization, the concrete result of thought and emotion.”
“In more advanced systems, thoughts and emotions are automatically and immediately translated into action.. Therefore, the lessons must be tought and learned well, The responsibility for creation must be clearly understood.”
Seth- “Events are not things that happen to you. They are materialized experiences formed by you, according to your expectations and beliefs.”
“If you are in poor health, you can remedy it. If you personal relationships are unsatisfactory, you cn change them for the better. If you are in poverty, you can instead find yourself surrounded by abundance..”
“This does not mean that effort is not required, and determination. It does mean that you are not powerless to change events, and that each of you, regardless of your position, status, circumstances or physical condition, is in control of your own personal experience.”
“If you do not like your experience, then you must change the nature of conscious thoughts and experiences.”
“You need to learn the power of thought and emotion..Once you realize that your thoughts form reality, then you are no longer to slave to events. You simply have to learn the methods.”
“As I have told you before, in a manner of speaking you are given the gifts of the gods. Your beliefs become reality. What you believe is, and becomes real in your experience. There is no area in your life to which this does not apply.”
“In basic terms, civilization is dependent upon the spontaneity and fulfillment of the individual. Your civilization is in sad straits. Not because you have allowed spontaneity or fulfillment to individuals, but because you have denied it, and because your institutions are based upon that premise.”
Seth’s Wisdom on Deliberate Creation
You must never forget what Seth says next, “Your conscious mind is always trying to give you a clear picture, but you often allow preconceived ideas to black out this intelligence”
But don’t worry, seth goes on to explain that you can change your limiting beliefs and how to go about doing it. “Your beliefs can be like fences that surround you. You must firmest recognize that existence of such barriers- you must see them or you will not even realize that you are not free, simply because you will not see beyond the fence They will represent the boundaries of your experience. There is one belief, however, that destroys artificial barriers to perception an expanding belief that automatically pierces false inhibiting ideas:
“The Self is Not Limited. There are No boundaries or Separations of the Self. You create your own Reality.”
Write out the belief, in capital letters, on a large piece of paper. Hang this on your bedroom door. Every time you enter or leave the room, repeat this belief to yourself. It is very empowering.
You must begin to remove all your limiting beliefs and replace them with true, expanding beliefs (such as the one above). Remember, nobody can change your beliefs for you; you must change them for yourself. Also, nobody can force beliefs on you, unless you allow them to (consciously or unconsciously). But you must be absolutely certain that you can change your beliefs and you must be willing to try).
“You are not your ideas, nor even your thoughts; you are the self who experiences them.’ -seth
Changing Beliefs using Emotions and Imaginations
Your emotions and your imagination both follow your belief. When the belief vanishes then the same emotional context is no longer entertained, and your imagination turns in other directions. Beliefs automatically mobilize your emotional and imaginative powers.
Few beliefs are intellectual alone. When you are examining the contents of your conscious mind, you must learn, or recognize, the emotional and imaginative connotations that are connected with a given idea. There are various ways of altering the belief by substituting its opposite. One particular method is three-pronged. You generate the emotion opposite direction from the one dictated by the belief. At the same time you consciously assure yourself that the unsatisfactory belief is an idea about reality and not an aspect of reality itself.
You realize that ideas are not stationary. Emotions and imagination move them in one direction or the other, reinforce them or negate them.
Quite deliberately you use your conscious mind playfully, creating a game as children do, in which for a time you completely ignore what seems to be in physical terms and “pretend” that what you really want is real.
If you are poor, you purposely pretend that you have all you need financially, Imagine how you will spend your money, If you are ill, imagine playfully that you are cured, see yourself doing what you would do. If you cannot communicate with others, imagine yourself doing so easily. If you feel your days dark and pointless, then imagine them filled and joyful.
Now this may sound impractical, yet in your daily life you use your imagination and your emotions often at the service of far less worthy beliefs; and the results are quite clear – and let me add, unfortunately practical.
As it took a while for the unsatisfactory beliefs to become materialized, so it may be a time before you are physical results; but the new ideas will take growth and change your experience as certainly as the old one did. The process of imagining will also bring your face to face with other subsidiary ideas that may momentarily bring you up short. you may see where you held two quite conflicting ideas simultaneously, and with equal vigour. In such a case, you stalemated yourself.
“Pretending” is in general rather not considered as a virtue. However – it is one of the most effective mental-tools you can use.
False it till you makes it.
Throughout, your reincarnation existences you expand your consciousness, your ideas, your perceptions, your values. You break away from self-adopted restrictions, and you grow spiritually as you learn to step aside from limiting conceptions and dogmas.
Your rate of learning depends entirely upon you, however, Limited, dogmatic, or rigid concepts of good and evil can hold you back. Too narrow ideas of the nature of existence can follow you through several lives if you do not choose to be spiritually and psychically flexible.
There rigid ideas can indeed act as leaches, so that you are forced to circle like a tied puppy dog about a very small radius. In such cases, through perhaps a group of existences, you will find yourself batting against ideas of good and evil, running about in a circle of confusion, doubt, and anxiety.
Your friends and acquaintances will be concerned with the same problem, for you will draw to yourself those with the same concerns.
We create our own reality from what we choose to believe about ourselves, and world around us.
If we do not CONSCIOUSLY choose our own beliefs, we UNCONSCIOUSLY absorb them from our surroundings.
“How you define yourself, and the world around you, forms your intent, which, in turn, forms your reality.”
Lack of understanding and acceptance – Pain
Understanding and acceptances – Peace and Joy.
