Here are some beliefs among folks I’ve encountered. Do you recognize any as true for you? “I always get a cold when the weather changes. I get the flu whenever it goes around. If I am around children a lot, I will automatically pick up whatever germs they bring along. If I drink from someone’s cup who has a cold (flu or whatever), I will get it too. It takes “X” amount of time to recover from this injury/ailment.”
What was that story about a little boy who was supposedly terminally crippled/sickly and was always kept in bed and treated as such? Then his bright little cousin who didn’t buy into that concept ended up living in the same house? Ah yes, the Secret Garden!
How many people believe that they will be cursed by the Goddess Pele if they take coral from Hawaii? Then, of course, something “bad” happens that they totally attribute to the curse causing some to even return the coral. Then, of course, there are all the myriad variations of walking under a ladder, a black cat crossing their path, the number 13, a cracked mirror…..
More and more people now are starting to “get” this concept but mostly with thoughts and beliefs they are aware of. Often the most powerful, life driving beliefs are those held subconsciously that they are not even aware of. Deepak Chopra speaks it profoundly, “Now I realize that it isn’t the miracle that creates the believer. Instead, we are all believers. We believe that the illusion of the material world is completely real. That belief is our only prison. It prevents us from making the journey into the unknown.”
It’s not that what we believe in is not real. In fact, our very belief makes it so. Of course, it gets a bit more complicated for some when they say, “I would have never wanted to create this or that. Or, “I want this (fill in the blank) and I believe it but it doesn’t happen. Yes, this discourse can go on and on for chapters and books and centuries…and it has!Do you want to get clearer for your specific life journey?
