you are not sure how to change one if you find one so today I’m going to make a video all about that all about the art of changing a limiting belief so if you want to find out how to do that then be sure to keep watching what’s up guys welcome back to my channel my name is Jen I am a spiritual life and business coach and you have found my youtube channel this is where I make two videos for you guys every week all about combining spirituality and personal development together so that you can use them both to create your best life if that sounds like something you’re interested in and then be sure to go ahead and hit that subscribe button so welcome back guys thank you for joining me here today and like I said at the top today we are going to talk all about how to change a limiting belief so you have probably heard me talk about limiting beliefs on this channel before but just in case you’re new here or just in case you need a little refresher I’m going to start off by explaining what a limiting belief is so we all have limiting beliefs and a limiting belief is just something that you have latched on to it is a belief that you have had probably for a very long time which either limits what you think is possible for yourself or limits what you see as being possible in the world and so that is a very kind of broad statement but an example of a limiting belief would be I’m not good at public speaking for example so yes of course maybe in the past you’ve had some moments of public speaking that didn’t go that well but continuing to believe that your life will always be like that and that you will never be a good public speaker is a really good way to limit what you actually accomplish in this life so there are a lot of people out there I can guarantee who are going around believing this about themselves but what they don’t realize is that with a little time and attention and practice and a little bit of mindset work they could probably turn into a pretty great public speaker it really isn’t about what your actual limitations are because the thing that is really getting in our way and giving us limitation is us it is us saying I believe this or I believe that I can’t do this I should say and that creates a self-fulfilling prophecy of course if you don’t think you can do something you’re never going to be able to do it so that is how a living belief changes the way you are in the world and actually changes your world it will actually limit what you think is possible for yourself and limit the possibilities that you see in the world around you so when you start to do the work of personal development and manifestation you are probably going to come across some of your very own limiting beliefs and it is one thing to talk about them and it is one thing to understand that everyone has them but it is an entirely different thing to find your limiting beliefs and to start to change them so that’s why today I wanted to put together this quick video for you with four steps to tell you how to find and change a limiting belief so this could apply for basically everybody so I hope you’re excited to learn the process today and let’s get right into it so step number one to changing a limiting belief is simply to noticing the belief and that might sound like it’s not even a step but it actually is we need to have awareness of the problem before we can start to solve the problem and this is the case of limiting beliefs most people just think these things are real and they believed in them for so long that they don’t even realize that these are limitations that they are believing in so this might be challenging for you to come up with at first but I want you to start thinking about an area in life where you feel stuck or an area in life where you feel like you want to grow but you’re like not making the progress that you want to so I want you to think now about the ways that you think about yourself the way you describe yourself the common things you say so for example say you are trying to find a romantic relationship and you’re looking for your ideal partner but sometimes you’re out with your friends on Friday night having some drinks and you find yourself saying all the good ones are taken or all the men in this city are terrible or oh I only attract people that are wrong for me or something like that so at first you might even really believe in these things right you might believe all the good ones are taken you might believe you just live in the wrong place or you might believe that you just have some sort of personal luck following you and only bringing you people that aren’t good for you but I can assure you that every single one of those things is actually a limiting belief and actually sitting around talking about it complaining about it giving this idea more and more power over every Friday for months and years is actually giving this idea that you have about the world a whole lot of power and therefore a whole lot of magnetism it is going to keep expanding in your space unless you do the work to go out and reprogram it so those are some very concrete ideas of limiting beliefs you might also want to think about the way you think about money about the way you describe yourself about whatever it is that you are trying to work on I just really challenge you to get a little bit curious and just really notice what you are putting out there what you’re thinking what you’re saying so the point here is not to be judgmental and the point is definitely not to say to yourself oh well I don’t really think that or I don’t really believe that if you find yourself saying it or if you find yourself like hearing it like a voice in your head like think like I thought you probably have had that thought there before you probably come back to this conclusion multiple times before so I just want you to first start off by making a note writing it down maybe do this for a whole entire week and when you get to the end of the week you can pick the one that you want to work on but just bringing this awareness to what you’re thinking and believing and saying is so key and so many people misses Park completely so like I said the very first step is awareness and once you have your thoughts once you’ve figured out something I’ll go over and meet you in the second step okay step number two for changing a limiting belief now that you have a list maybe of a bunch of different limiting beliefs it is time for you to pick one that we are going to work on so we’re going to do this one belief at a time unfortunately you cannot just go in and banish all of them at once it’s going to take a little bit of work for you to locate them and go through them one by one so once you pick your one belief that you want to work on now I want you to take a little bit of time maybe grab a note and set aside some time where we can go and sit down and think about this one statement so limiting relief is just a sentence right it is just one singular sentence and again maybe that sentence for you is all the good ones are taken so I want you to take your piece of paper or your journal and I want you to start writing down all the evidence that you have in your brain for this limiting belief and that might be months of evidence years of evidence but I want you to get curious and to start to write down this stuff so these are all your memories all of your past incidences that have proven this statement to be true and maybe there are a lot of them or maybe there’s only a few but they’re really big in your mind and they hold a lot of pain so I want you to take just whatever they are and put them out on a piece of paper and just kind of look at them and understand that your brain has been proving you right so I’m not saying that you have caused these things to happen to you but the fact that you’re holding on to them as evidence is keeping you stuck in the same paradigm okay so what we really need to start to do is to start to look beyond this paradigm and I’m going to get to that in the next one for now it is just a moment for you to thank your brain for doing its job and your brains job is to try to keep you safe and by categorizing things under this limiting belief it is trying to do its best to keep you from having these things happen to you again unfortunately that’s probably coming along with the opposite intention of keeping you stuck in the same place so again release this with expectation don’t get stuck in judgment don’t get stuck in self-loathing and once you have this list then you’ve completed step two and you’re ready for the next step okay step number three and how to change a limiting belief is to decide on what you want to believe in so I know when it comes to limiting beliefs people think that oh this just happened to me I started to believe these things because of the world that I lived in and to a certain degree that’s true like you obviously had very real experiences that happen to you and I’m not to minimize them or say that those things didn’t happen but this is the cool thing you are a conscious creator which means you get to consciously create your life any way you want it to be and so your choice right now is to look at this belief and to look at this pattern that you’ve been carrying around and to decide whether or not this is serving you so I know when it comes to limiting beliefs it can be hard for us to get out of our old perspective so my very first question to get you starting to shift your perspective here is just to ask that is there another way of seeing this situation so to go back to our simple limiting belief all the good ones are taken is there another way that I could look at this is there another way I could see this in the world is there another option available to me so those are all really important questions to ask yourself and this is kind of a two-parter because the second part of this is what do I want to believe in so what beliefs would serve me and what beliefs would serve the kind of a person I want to be and the future I want to create for myself so again you get to choose your beliefs no one else comes along and puts them in your brain you ultimately are the one in charge of doing that so my challenge for you today is to pick the belief that serves you that doesn’t hurt you that doesn’t hold you back that doesn’t minimize you that doesn’t make you play small the belief that has you show up as your best brightest shiniest self what could you believe in instead that would help you to be that so most people will want to hold on to their old beliefs just because they’re right and our brain really would rather be right even if that keeps us unhappy then change its perspective because change is always scary and new and scary and new always means that maybe you’re gonna die which is completely illogical of course but that is exactly what our brain is doing so again this might be really uncomfortable it might be really challenging you for you to go through this part of the equation but this is your power this is you choosing and building and creating your life I really believe the conscious creation is the of choosing this is where you were choosing you are choosing where you were going so get excited and choose what you want okay we’re almost there so for step number four the final step in choosing a looming belief now is your job to go out there and to start collecting evidence of what you want to believe in so we already looked at the evidence that you used to have of the idea that you are trying to get rid of so for example all the good ones are taken so you’ve got your little list there of ways that this has been proven to be true for you so we are gonna send your brain now and a little scavenger hunt so you built up those memories you build up that reserve of ideas about that belief effortlessly over time because this is just what your brain likes to do your brain likes to decide on something and then it likes to look for proof that things are true so we’re just gonna work with what your brain automatically does the only thing that we are doing differently now is consciously choosing what you want to believe in so now that you have your conscious new belief about the same situation I want you to start challenging yourself to look for evidence of the new belief so this might take a little bit of time or maybe no time at all it really depends on the situation I mean you can really undo a limiting belief really quickly and then other times it takes a little bit of work because again remember all of this stuff took a lifetime for it to come into your brain so it likely probably is going to take a little work to undo and to create a new expectation system around us and that is totally okay just be gentle with yourself again don’t be judgmental and don’t berate yourself don’t you know go down the self-loathing highway none of us need any of that again this is all about choosing consciously and choosing with love and choosing and choosing and choosing until your choice becomes your automatic default so if you want you can make like a notes page in your phone write down all your evidence in there or maybe it is enough for you just to remember it and to consciously look for it as you go through your day it really depends on the situation for you you also might want to take a notepad sit down and start to look for the in your path of how this wasn’t true so that’s actually very powerful because you’ve already lived these experiences and now that you have just a new lens sometimes you can go back and look at the same experiences and to see something different so growth is all about changing our brain to move differently to think differently to fire differently and sometimes you can do that by looking at your past style so whatever method you take and no matter how long this takes I just want you to commit to this and there’s not going to be like a bell that goes off and tells you when you’re a limiting belief is gone so it’s going to be up to you to come back and check on this but any time you find yourself crawling back creeping back into that old limiting belief that is keeping you stuck just remember that you can choose the new one and you might have to practice choosing over and over again before it becomes a habit you also might get it overnight I don’t know but either way I just want you to have fun with this be loving with yourself and just be excited for the kind of future that you are creating so again you get to believe in whatever you want to believe a belief is just a thought and you are the one who is the gatekeeper of the thoughts and beliefs so even if this thought has been yours since you were five years old if it isn’t serving you now you have my full permission to go in locate and change it and in fact I really challenge you to do that especially if you’re feeling stuck about anything so that’s it for today’s video thank you guys so much for being here I would really love to know how this worked out for you so if you have any questions or
