In many spiritual circles, the idea our belief systems can hinder our growth and healing is quite common.
Though things like religious or political beliefs can easily be recognized, there are many internal beliefs that we have that many of us are not consciously aware of. Many of us have beliefs like:
I will never be good enough.
I’ll never find a partner right for me.
I’m not pretty enough.
Bad things always happen to me.
People are ridiculous.
I shouldn’t pay for a massage because its too expensive.
Through this process of recognizing our limiting beliefs in order to heal them and let them go, it can be easy for one to fall into the idea that there are no beliefs that are worth having.
Well, I think there is a little problem with this.
There’s a reason we had those beliefs to begin with: Our beliefs give us a foundation. They help us to be grounded in the world. They can provide us with a solid foundation to build, grow and heal from.
When we push ourselves to have no beliefs at all, then we may find ourselves confused and off balance.
Here are seven non-limiting beliefs to provide you with a solid foundation for your own self and spiritual development:
#1 – Everything in the world is constantly evolving
Nothing ever stays the same in this world. Just as the seasons change, so do people, places, and things. We cannot stop it or control it, but rather move with the flow of this natural evolution.
#2 – Nothing in this world is absolute
People die, relationships end, and we discover that what we thought works actually causes more problems than it solves. The universe will change and adjust as we do. It is conscious and has a “mind” of its own. Just when we think we know something, the universe shifts to prove nothing that we think to be true is absolute.
#3 – The world is filled with endless possibilities for creation
Simply, if we believe that anything is possible then nothing actually is impossible. If we believe nothing is impossible, then we create the mindset needed to create the seemingly impossible.
#4 – We are always supported
Completely taking away the possible religious or spiritual beliefs and putting them aside, if we believe that the universe will always support us then it releases any fear we may have of doing something. If we believe that we can jump and something is there to catch us, then it makes it easier for us to jump.
#5 – We deserve the life of our dreams
If we believe that we deserve everything that we’ve ever dreamed of then we hold no limitations on actually making that a reality.
#6 – We are happiness, joy, and love
If we believe that we and everyone in this world at the deepest core of their being is happiness, joy, and love already then we allow that to not only emerge within us but in others as well.
#7 – Heaven is a place on earth
Yes I know this probably sounds super cheesy, but its a belief worth having. When we believe heaven is already right here on earth right now then we can actually create and make it seen to more people.
