We’ve all heard the quote that we believe what we see, but the truth is that we only can see what we believe. When there is something staring us in the face that we don’t believe is possible we will miss the cues, and the opportunities that are right in front of us.
I’ve been studying something called the Trust Technique that is mainly used with animals. It has clearly highlighted to me how very sensitive to our minds our animals are. Those of you who have animals are very aware that they respond to our thoughts and feelings all the time. But having just acquired another kitten who is also a nervous cat, and watching the interaction with my other two nervous cats was very instructive of this very point. She saw everything as a threat and behaved accordingly. The other two, coming from feral mothers just backed quickly away from this ferocious kitten (half their size I might add) because she dealt with threats by attacking and hissing. How many of us do that very thing when we meet new people?
If we believe that the world is a friendly place, it behaves as though it is. If we behave that other people are out to get us, that’s what we get more of. It sort of goes along with the Law of Attraction … what we put our focus on we get more of. But it is more than that.
Right from the first breath we take (and who knows maybe even before we are conceived) we are forming impressions about the world around us. It has been found that when in the womb that the baby is picking up impressions of the world it can hear around it, and from the mother’s reactions. If the mother lives in a noisy stressful environment and reacts accordingly, the baby is being pre-programmed to believe that the world is a threatening place. If the mother puts on soothing music and meditates regularly, this too will affect the baby.
So we all have filters in place that affect how we see the world around us. Just look at the beliefs we all have about money! Some people believe they are just lucky and they are. Some people believe they have to work hard for their money and they do have to work hard for it.
Some people believe it’s easy to make new friends and it is for them. Some people feel that they need to get to know other people more slowly in case they are a threat to them. Very often very sensitive people, who pick up all sorts of stuff from other people, need time to sort out their impressions of them, and they will feel they need to protect themselves until they feel safer around someone. And for them, it’s the right thing to do. But if you believe that other people are more dangerous or not trustworthy, it will certainly inhibit your ability to make new friends or attract more clients easily.
So it’s worth a little time to do some inner research on your beliefs and values (that’s another article in itself). Very often this sort of thing comes up in an Akashic Record reading, because the Masters and Teachers can get to the root of these beliefs faster than we could alone. But you can start this exercise by taking a step back and examining how you respond to new things and circumstances as well as people and ask yourself “What do I believe will happen?” And then keep asking until you get right down to the earliest memory you have about a subject and you will discover something that triggered that belief.
We all makes beliefs based on what we feel about ourselves in some circumstances. A lot of them are due to self-worth issues. So it is always a good idea to learn to love yourself and learn to value yourself for Who You Really Are. That’s one of the benefits of having a Soul Profile reading, because that really tells you the beauty of who you are at Soul level, what bits of the Divine you carry always.
So who are you? And what do you believe about life? Good questions to ask yourself this month.
