“If your thoughts contain noticing you do not have it yet, you will continue to attract not having it yet. You must believe you have it already. You must believe you have received it. You have to emit the feeling frequency of having received it, to bring those pictures back as your life. When you do that, the law of attraction will powerfully move all circumstances, people, and events for you to receive”

Belief systems are the stories we tell ourselves that define our personal sense of “reality.”  Every human being has a belief system that they utilize and it is through this mechanism that we individually, “make sense” of the world around us.

A belief is just a thought we continue to think over and over.  Repetition deepens the impression or in other words creates a belief system, positive or negative. 

“All behaviors are sponsored by beliefs.  You cannot make a long-term change in behaviors without addressing the beliefs that underlie them.  Seek to change beliefs, not behavior.  After a belief, the behavior will change by itself.  You can take whatever action you want to take to alter someone else’s behavior or to stop it, but unless you alter the beliefs that produce such behavior, you will alter nothing and stop nothing.  You can alter belief in two ways.  Either by enlarging upon it, or by changing it completely.”  – Neale Donald Walsch 

How do you get yourself to a point of believing? Start make-believing or imagining. Be like a child and make-believe. Act as if you have it already. As you make-believe, you will begin to believe and feel you have it already. The Universe is responding to your predominant thoughts all the time, not just in the moment you ask. That’s why after you’ve asked, you must continue to believe and know. Have faith and believe that you have it and that undying faith will be your greatest power. When you believe, you are receiving.  So get ready and watch the magic begin!

To master yourself, to master your thoughts, you do not have to control your thoughts. If you try to control your thoughts, you will attract having to control your thoughts. If negative thoughts come, don’t resist them. Just let them be, and then use the power of your will to change the focus to thoughts of appreciation and gratitude. Worrying about negative thoughts or trying to control them just brings more of them to you. If you don’t resist negative thoughts they will diminish, and if you laugh at them and make light of them, they will disappear completely.

One of my favorite quotes, one that I share with all my clients is the Bumblebee quote…

“The Bumblebee’s wings are too small for it to fly but the Bumblebee doesn’t know that, so it flies”

This quote says it all.  Aerodynamically the Bumblebee should not be able to fly but it doesn’t “believe” that so it goes on flying.  Remember, your beliefs dictate your behavior and your behavior shows the world who you really are.  

Thanks for reading and have an awesome week!
