Nothing has more influence on our lives, success, health, and happiness than our belief system. Yet most people treat their beliefs as coming from their experiences, rather than knowing that their experiences come from their belief systems. Thanks to ‘The Secret’, the ‘Law of Attraction’ and other popular self-empowerment ideas becoming more prevalent, this is changing.
However, even people who know that their beliefs have an effect on their experiences don’t always know how to shift their beliefs if they aren’t empowering ones. Consider the following:
It takes money to make money, and I don’t have any.
Some people (I) just can’t lose weight.
I can’t help being angry, even though I know that I’m the one that’s suffering.
I can’t do what I love, and make a living at it.
Most people reading this letter already know that those beliefs end up as self-fulfilling prophecies. But those beliefs often go back for years, and have so much baggage in them, that changing seems impossible.
Not any more! The field of energy psychology is now making it possible for even long-held, deeply entrenched beliefs to be changed, often quickly and usually painlessly. One of the best examples of this work is EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique.
Based on 5000-year-old Chinese Meridian Therapy (the same ideas used in acupuncture and acupressure) EFT often works where nothing else will, whether on disempowering beliefs, fears and phobias, traumatic memories, performance anxiety, cravings/addictions, physical pain, and more. Here is a brief introduction to EFT:
EFT is based on the idea:
“The cause of ALL negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system.”
EFT is elegantly simple, in that it does not attempt to diagnose which of the many energy meridians of the body is disrupted – with a simple routine you can activate most of the meridians, and you will, by default, remove the disruption.
If this is all sounding a bit weird, I recommend that you try the routine before dismissing it! Many thousands of people have benefited from EFT – why not give it a try?
If you have disempowering beliefs like those mentioned above, and could change them, would it make a difference for you?
