Spiritual people tell me they ‘get it’ but they don’t (me included sometimes)!
Many people that have read a lot of self-help and spiritual books tell me that they understand the principles of the law of attraction, the law of abundance and so forth. Spiritual people explain that they fully understand that our thoughts create things and even some explain how it happens.
I just don’t understand why __________
They then turn around and say, ‘but I just don’t understand why ________’
- I can’t find my true love
- I can’t find a way to make money
- My career path is a total struggle
- My kids don’t like me
- My life sucks
- I can’t shed the weight off
- I can’t get my body healthy
The reason they can’t achieve any of these things comes down to the fact that they just don’t ‘get it’. These people are still living life based on passed programs yet they can’t see them. They don’t see their conditioning running and because they can’t see it, they don’t know how to change it.
We’ve all been giving thousands of beliefs by our parents, environment and everything that’s gone before – some of these beliefs were good for us yet many are terribly disempowering.
Bling ignorance would be better than knowledge without wisdom
Blind ignorance would actually be better than knowledge without wisdom to use it. Instead of not knowing their thoughts create they’re reality, they know it yet their knowledge makes matters worse – they perhaps feel guilty that they can’t really play the game because they don’t know how.
What a mess!
But the reason I can write about it comes down to the fact that I don’t always ‘get it’ either. I often fall back into the trap where my life starts to fall apart and instead of examining my thoughts/beliefs/energy that is creating it, I look around bewildered asking, ‘why is this happening to me?’
I am creating my reality, I am creating my reality…
Then, I remind myself, ‘Kim, this is all happening to you because you are creating it.’
Usually, I then rack my brain to see what beliefs, thoughts, expectations, feelings, etc. are causing the unwanted reality and I’m stumped.
Every so often, however, I’m not stumped. I hear myself say something and have the ability to recognise that it’s the exact thing my mom would say.
Speaking phrases my parents used helps me spot disempowering thoughts
For example, my parents often worried about money. They would say, ‘Money doesn’t go on trees,’ ‘We don’t have enough money,’ ‘Blame the tax man for not having nice things,’ and eventually it became, ‘It’s your fathers fault we’re poor.’ After the poor consciousness was imprinted on me, I was then installed with ‘Men are lying, stealing, cheats…’ It’s a no wonder I struggled for the first half of my life!
My early conditioning cased me to fear being poor
I grew up with huge fears about being poor – so much so that I made it my life ambition to be rich. I systematically poured wealth consciousness into my head by listening to hypnosis and meditation downloads, reciting affirmations (I am wealthy!! I am rich!!) and pushing my way to the top of the success ladder.
For the most part, I forced new beliefs in rather than finding and removing old conditioning. I simply didn’t know how to find the old condition…
Is it better to force new beliefs in without finding the old beliefs?
With this in mind, I usually didn’t catch the beliefs installed in me. It was every so often, I’d hear my mom say something and think, ‘that’s not a good thing to think…and wow, I actually think that too!’ There’s another belief/thought structure to get rid of.
How can you ‘fix’ past programming if you can’t see it?
The annoying thing is this – how can you fix your past programming when it’s almost impossible to see it? Yes – you can pour as much empowering stuff into your mind/body but what about all the crap that’s sitting there? The crap that needs to be dumped?
Neuroscientists tell us that 95% of our thoughts are pre-programmed. We all think we’re living in the now but we’re actually just rerunning the same ole past movies over and over.
At times I feel as if I’m making progress, but often I feel like I’ve taken one step forward and two steps back. I wish I could find a foolproof way to see all my beliefs and then take action to get rid of the ones that no longer benefit me. Any suggestions?
