Stop Dusting off Your Old Beliefs

Dear Friend, I am going to begin by asking you to think of the clothes in your closet. There are all those clothes, some of them you wear and some you haven’t worn since the year 2000. This is a bit like the beliefs that you hold. You have been gathering them up along the way and holding many of them to you much longer than the time that they serve you. A belief is just a thought that you keep thinking, it is just a practiced thought and every thought that you think still has the potential of attracting. The question to be asked now is which of these thoughts  are irrelevant to where you now are and will not help you to move from where you are to where you want to be.

You have got things that are inactive in your experience; you just don’t take them out and look at them every day. They are usually packed away in a room or in a building and you don’t think about them because they are now irrelevant to your now experience. If they were relevant to your now experience, you would bring them right where you are and put them on the dresser, but because they are irrelevant to your experience you tend to let them go. Even if you don’t remove them completely from your experience, you remove them by your lack of attention to them from your active experience.

And yet there are beliefs that you are dragging around that no longer serve you. You don’t put them away in the closet and leave them unnoticed; you bring them out every day and dust them.  In doing so, in bringing them out every day and dusting them off and showing them to others, “I hate this thing but look at it,” “I didn’t like it the first time I ran across it but I take it wherever I go and I show it to everyone I know.” It therefore might be a good idea to begin sieving through your beliefs closet in a way that you have been sieving through your clothes closet and finally acknowledge that “I am not wearing that anymore,” “I am not using that anymore” “I don’t need that.” In other words it served me, I wore it a lot but now it is out of fashion. It is not up to speed with what is going on actively now and so I am not going to do that anymore.

So how do you allow an unwanted, unproductive, unhelpful belief to become inactive? Just don’t get it out and show it to anyone. Don’t talk about it, don’t think about it. If you happen to think about it, think about it in relation to where you want it to be and then release it. A belief, unless it is active, has no drawing power; it has no effect on what is going on in your experience right now.

Most people don’t know this because they keep taking them out and dusting them off, they keep activating those beliefs by the attention they give them. They will see something on television or they read a book and someone who is having an experience mentions something and as they mention it you think about it. You add to it and as you add to it you can reactivate a belief in a short time frame that is now affecting your relationship with the manifestations that you are looking for.  So you need to stop that.  

Until next time, make this a week one in which you are living your life to the fullest.

With appreciation and gratitude
