Have you come upon the writings of Byron Katie? She is a teacher of consciousness that came to her wisdom through a battle with her own mental health. Sometimes it takes a lot for us to really look at ourselves and search for the greater truth. She has four questions she suggests people use to question their beliefs.
Those questions are:
1. Is it true?
2. Can you absolutely know it is true?
3. How do you react, what happens, when you believe that thought?
4. Who would you be without that thought?
These are simple question but using them can liberate you from limiting beliefs and open you to the real freedom of personal expression. If you want to know more about her work, check it out here.
As you know from my past blogs, I regularly invite you to search for your own truth instead of being run by the beliefs you learned in your formative years. This self-searching is very powerful and positive and will enrich your life in many ways. If you use the above questions on thoughts or beliefs that you have that are getting in your way of success, you will free yourself to be who you are capable of being.
Would you prefer to live in joy and love? If so, ask yourself what is getting in your way from making that happen? What beliefs or thoughts are blocking your heart or numbing you out? How are your thoughts holding you back, keeping you down, and shutting out the happiness that is available to you in this moment?
The past can be a set of chains that imprison you. The limiting ideas you learn can hold you back, make you act like your parents, keep you from being open in your mind and heart. Isn’t it time now to have hope for a better life for yourself and those you love? Isn’t it time your release the anchor that has you stuck in the past of limitation and cut the thoughts that bind you?
Enjoy your Sunday and take some time to contemplate this: your thoughts are not real they are just thoughts, the truth is beyond thoughts and known at a deeper level. Question all your thoughts and you will forever set yourself free.
