6 Questions Explaining: What is Belief?

“Most folks aren’t quite ready to have their belief systems blown to pieces with overtly obvious miracles, but this is changing.” ~ The Universe

If you are ready to have your belief systems blown to pieces then see my 6 questions explaining: What is Belief?

Q#1: What is Belief?

A belief is a mental construct that filters your perception of reality.  Just think of it as a sliver of reality. Each one of us can only experience a thin sliver of reality at one time. Most of the time we’re missing all the other experiences we could be having.  A belief narrows down our sliver of reality to only a small fraction of what is currently possible for us to experience.

You can’t experience everything.  You’re always going to miss out on something because while you’re experience this moment n-o-w, somewhere something else is happening.

Your beliefs play a big part in this filtering process.  John Kehoe talks about this thin sliver of reality in his video called, The Ghost Twin:

Q#2: Where Do Beliefs Come from?

Thoughts must pass through your conscious mind before they transform into beliefs.  That means you must have consciously thought what you currently believe before you believed it.

If you repeatedly think empowering thoughts you’ll seed new empowering beliefs in your subconscious mind.  If you repeatedly think limiting thoughts you’ll seed new limiting beliefs in your subconscious mind.

Beliefs are formed in the subconscious mind.  Your subconscious mind is a recording device.  It replays whatever is recorded on it.  It doesn’t have a preference.  It takes whatever you give it.

And since you’re in control of what you consciously think, you are in control of what you believe.

Q#3: Where Did I Get My Beliefs?

For most people, 95% of their beliefs were formed between the ages of 0-5 years old.  Most of these beliefs are from your environment: your parents, teachers and role models when you were still a baby.

The reason this is true is because of how the brain works when you’re a child.  You can learn more by watching this video: The Unconscious Mind Power Series 2

Q#4: How Are Beliefs Created?

Beliefs are created by the repetition of your dominant thoughts – your habitual ways of thinking.  It’s a thought or an idea that you have consistently replayed in your mind. These seeds of thought, played over and over again become recorded in your subconscious mind.

Since nobody has seen the subconscious mind just think of it as a digital recording device.  As you record your voice on this device, it can be replayed back to you exactly the way you recorded it.

The only difference is that the subconscious mind doesn’t record just the voice, it also records the tonality and volume of your voice – as well as any other thoughts and feelings you repeat to yourself on an ongoing basis.  Repetition mixed with emotions are at the heart of changing your beliefs.

Q#5: What Techniques Can I Use to Change My Beliefs?

Start to influence your subconscious mind.  When you start to effectively write new thoughts to your digital recording device, you start changing what you believe.

The most life changing beliefs you can change are the ones you have about yourself.  Here are two techniques that are very powerful if used correctly:

Q#6: How do I know if My Beliefs Have Changed?

The best way to know if your beliefs have changed is based on a change in your behavior.  Your behavior (or the way you act) is always preceded by feelings and thoughts.  If you act differently, you’re also thinking differently:

Thoughts > Feelings > Actions

Here’s an example.  Let’s say you’ve always had a fear of approaching beautiful woman.  And because you fear beautiful woman, you never seem to be able to find a date.

After working your mind, you seed a new belief that is empowering to you.  Something like, “woman find me irresistible.”

Now when you think of approaching a beautiful woman you feel much better about it.  And since you feel much better, your behavior also changes and you start approaching and meeting beautiful woman.

The best way to know that your beliefs have changed is by a change in your behavior.

    In my understanding and opinion, Belief is what you accepted the thing that someone said is true, even you have not seen it and Belief is very important in thinking, learning, studying and visualizing, without Belief all of these are not real and true and make you live your life with failure.
