EVERYTHING YOU BELIEVE IS A CHOICE
We always choose our beliefs. Beliefs are powerful and fuel everything! They fuel your thoughts, feelings, what you struggle with and what comes easy.
And, if you are not manifesting a big desire, you may need to dive into underlying beliefs that may be creating major obstacles in your co-creative process.
Consider this; there are things that come easily for you. They come easily for you because you BELIEVE and KNOW that they come easily for you.
You are confident in your ability to do certain things successfully.
What things are you confident in? What is it that you do and accomplish easily? What is it that has “caused” that level of confidence? What do you BELIEVE about yourself and others as it relates to those things that come without a lot of effort?
Now, how can you apply that knowledge to the NEW belief/s you are implanting through your continued awareness, spontaneous forgiveness, gratitude, empowered choices, consistency and behaviors that are aligned with what you are in the process of creating?
You can begin to create experiences that support the beliefs that will serve you. Then begin to collect evidence that support the belief.
For example, if you are in the process of manifesting health or healing, one of your new and supportive beliefs may be “I have the power to heal.” Now, let's expand your picture of healing.
What is healing? How do you show up as a healer? How do you heal others? Write down all of the examples you have of being able to heal (cuts, scrapes, past healings). Do you heal through words, touch, through being present, with a smile, a kind word? Do you heal through listening? Through love? Energy? Faith? Prayer? Healthy choices? Learning the language of your body? Through just BEING?
How can you apply that knowledge to yourself? Then complete the statement, I heal through. . .”
NOW. . . RELEASE
What do you release? What do you choose to release? What weighted burdens, if you released them -- right here and now--in this moment--would bring you a sense of incredible freedom and joy?
Write down that which you choose to release, stand up and state out loud, I release______. I release_________. For once and for all, I release_________.
Burn your list and release the ashes to the earth. Or mix the ashes into the soil of a new plant or tree so you can symbolically watch and observe your new growth.

Then, fill in these blanks. I claim_________. I choose________.I attract___________.
Collect evidence and images that support what you claim and choose to bring into your life and write them down and/or add them to your collage. Collect words and phrases that express your power and bring your visions into physical form. Paste them on your collage or a place where you will see them.
Collect evidence in others as well. Remember, just because we believe in something doesn’t necessarily mean we are always able to accomplish it ourselves.
And, just because we haven't experienced something personally, doesn't mean it is not possible or true!
When you look at others who have accomplished what you are trying to accomplish do you feel envy or are you happy for them?
Are you envious of them for having or accomplishing what you want or can you appreciate that you may be able to learn from them?
THE CRITICAL MISSING PIECE
Your main objective is to identify self defeating beliefs and then replace them with beliefs that support, rather than detract from manifesting your desires. You can begin collecting enough evidence in support of the belief so they truly become BELIEFS, not just desires.
This is one of the most critical missing pieces in most traditional Law of Attraction and Manifestation teachings.
Belief fosters EXPECTANCY and CERTAINTY, both of which must be included in the recipe for manifestation.
The second missing piece has to do with ALIGNMENT. You can't think yourself into anything if you lack alignment; alignment of beliefs, thoughts, behaviors, energy and emotions.
Even if you manifest your desire, if your beliefs and behaviors are not in alignment, the victory will not be sustained and then. . . guess what? Now you've successfully set yourself up to waiver in your belief and lose major ground on your evolutionary journey.
WHERE ARE YOU LEAKING?
Ask yourself, “is there anything I am ready to forgive? How can I be more of an expression of gratitude and love? What are the actions, behaviors and activities that bring me joy, increase my confidence and foster EXPECTANCY?”
You may not realize it, but any residual resentments; areas of unforgiveness that cause leakages to your energy, will profoundly undermine organized thought and energy. And, keep in mind that in the long run, no matter how much forgiving you have done, at the core - ALWAYS - the most honest and important forgiveness work is always about forgiving ourselves.
OK, back to the concept of disorganized thought and energy. Disorganized thought and energy are akin to fickle flip-flopping and as far as the Universe/God/your highest self is concerned, you have not reached clarity in your request or desire. Your thoughts and energy are your messengers to the Universe. What messages are you actually sending?
TRUST YOURSELF AND YOUR HIGHER POWER
When do you trust yourself the most? Why does that level of trust exist? How can you apply that knowledge to what you are in the process of creating?
It's easy to trust in ourselves and God when things are working. Yet, the first time we are met with disappointment, or better yet, when we don't recognize that we ARE getting exactly what we are aligning ourselves to get, the trust thing is thrown out the window.
Lack of trust fosters doubt.
Doubt disorganizes your thoughts and energy.
Get the picture?
Below you will find a list of sample belief statements, similar to many we explore in The Power of Our Way.
Examine the belief statements below and see which resonate with you and which don’t. Which statements cause resistance, fear, sadness, and/or doubt? Which foster certainty, expectancy, confidence, excitement, joy? Pay attention to what emerges .
Here are some examples:
- I hear my inner voice easily
- I love myself just as I am
- I am powerful
- Life is easy
- I accept help easily
- My life is perfect
- I have control over my life
- There is nothing holding me back from realizing my dreams
- The Universe always takes care of me and all of my needs
- I consistently make good choices for me and for the highest good of all
You may want to rate your level of belief in each statement using a scale - for example if you rate on a scale of 1-10 (ten being the highest level of belief - equal to 100% certainty and 0% doubt) and then reflect on what you have just learned about yourself.
Do your beliefs support your desires?
