It is not a surprise, nor is it new information that our thoughts effect our health and our happiness, but what is a relatively newer understanding is how our beliefs control our thoughts. It is through our belief system that our perception creates our thoughts which then inspire our emotions creating signal impulses that activate our hormones and the rest of our body systems. Bruce H Lipton, Ph.D, explains this process very scientifically yet understandable in his documentary "The Biology of Belief", I highly recommend watching if you would like more understanding of this process.
Beliefs are the filter which information is processed through, this is why no two people have the exact same experience in the exact same situation. Our beliefs are created primarily in the life stages from conception to age 6. According to Dr Rima Laibow in "Quantitative EEG and Neurofeedback" from birth to age 2 our brains are primarily functioning in the lower brain waves of 0.5 to 4hz known as delta brain waves, from ages 2 to 6 we spend more time in the higher brain waves of 4 - 8Hz known as theta brain waves. Theta brain wave frequency is known to be a more suggestible and programmable state. This is the ages when most of our beliefs are formed by the primary interactions with our parents and environment. Beliefs created by observation and cause and affect interaction. Our thoughts processed through the beliefs give us our individual perception and internal thought signals.
This is why our New Years Resolutions often fail by the end of January. Putting all the positive thought and physical actions behind your goal may not be enough if your belief is not in alignment with the goal. So how do we get our beliefs in alignment with the goal?? That is the big question. Affirmations have always been the big answer to this question and in some cases do work, but most often they aren't quite enough. You can repeat an affirmation over and over but if your belief is unchanged you will not succeed. So how do we change the belief? Beliefs are held in the subconscious mind, so we must pass through the conscious to the subconscious and reprogram ourselves. The subconscious is most suggestible and programmable in the theta brain waves, Through deep meditation we can reach the theta state and change our beliefs, this does work for some but is often unattainable as it takes a great amount of practice and understanding of meditation to reach this. Karuna Reiki Healing can access the theta waves and very effectively work to change beliefs, as can theta healing and Psych K healing. Accessing the soul through the Akashic records is also very effective. All of these methods require training and assistance from someone else, and as you all know I am a big advocate of being self-empowered so what is my solution to you? Here it is - combine affirmations, visualization, meditation and brain gym exercises. Sounds complicated? It's not really. I will explain. Most of us already know about affirmations, these are positive statements of our intention, visualization is the mental picturing of desired outcome, meditation is the centering of the mind, body and soul, and the basics of brain gym exercises is the physical crossing of the bodies meridians designed to stimulate both sides of the brain. In application you would find a peaceful place to be with either silence or meditative music, do gentle exercises that cross the bodies meridian such as softly swinging your arms and touching opposite shoulders or thighs. Find a rhythmic pattern to your movement, relax and centre your mind within yourself. Now start repeating your affirmation and bring the visual of your goal succeeded. Repeat the affirmation but do not struggle with the image. Allow your mind/internal voice to bring up your fears and let them go, do not interact with the fears just notice as they rise up and fade away, continue with your affirmation. Stay in this process until you feel it is complete and your new belief is accepted. People often report a sense of lightness, a lifting of pressure, a warmth spread through them, or a sense of joy & peace when the process is complete.
