“Will you Choose to Believe?”
That is an interesting question; or possibly a confusing question!
Perhaps it sounds incomplete; “Choose to believe what?” you might be wondering.
Well, actually there is nothing missing. Let me ask it another way:
Will you choose to believe?
This time I have made the assumption that you must believe something. I don’t think we have a problem with that; most of us would agree that we hold beliefs, about many things.
But by putting some emphasis on the word “choose” I am making the presupposition that perhaps you did not “choose” all of your beliefs, or that you may simply not be aware of making a conscious choice.
This is not so unusual; we learned many things as children and believed what we were told.
That is what children do, because when we are young, we don’t always know what or who to believe, so we naturally look to our parents, teachers or other trusted adults for answers.
My parents, for instance, grew up during World War 2 and experienced the rationing and scarcity that is typical of all entrenched conflicts. Everything was kept and put to good use. My father seldom threw anything away, especially if it was made of metal, wood or plastic. Electrical items were never discarded, even if they could not be economically repaired.
Everything was kept “just in case we might need it (some day)”.
As a child, I did not choose the belief that every electrical item my father held on to had some intrinsic value, but I have certainly carried around or “held” this belief throughout my life.
As a result of this new found awareness, I have pledged to rid my life of the clutter that has accumulated over the years. It is a battle that continues to this day, so deep is this “belief” that I did not choose…
I suppose the point I am really making here is that we all hold beliefs that we did not “choose” and which may put us in conflict with our current wishes, desires and goals.
The solution to this problem?
You may have heard something about belief entrainment already; the concept is hardly new.
In its simplest form, many people around the world have the daily habit of reciting “positive affirmations” or other mantras which can act to reinforce their religious beliefs or even their political beliefs and world view.
Such mantras may be repeated silently within, (like a private prayer or meditation) and often in solitude; or they may be chanted aloud, in a group, or even be sung aloud with a musical accompaniment, which could involve hundreds or even thousands of people congregated together for a ceremony or festival.
These are all variations of belief entrainment, but these popular examples bear little resemblance to the methods we will be discussing here, which some folk might see as perhaps being more scientific, analytical or questioning, as opposed to the “blind faith” that is required of practitioners in many religious persuasions.
The type of belief entrainment we will examine on this website is not geared towards any particular religion or political view; it is rather belief entrainment for the purpose of self empowerment and liberation, which can, in the right circumstances coexist in harmony with religious beliefs (but not always…)
This may be starting to sound like another website about positive thinking and in some respects, that might not not be such a bad thing! Positive thinking will take us much further than negative thinking, that is for sure.
But we all know that it can be quite challenging to think positively all of the time and it is very easy to let our good intentions slip as we fall back into negative thought patterns.
Practitioners of positive affirmations believe that by repeatedly exposing ourselves to positive messages and images, it is possible to combat some of the negative “internal dialogue” which follows us everywhere and has become almost unavoidable in our hectic modern lifestyles. (and they are not wrong, it does work!)
But often people focus on affirmations which only skim the surface and they wonder why they are not getting the results they seek. I have made this mistake myself and it’s a very easy one to make.
We all want to keep a positive attitude, but often we hold strong core beliefs which can be in direct conflict with that desired positive outlook and to make things worse, more often than not we aren’t even aware that this conflict exists! (core beliefs are often held subconsciously; its as though we just know something very strongly but have never stopped to think how or why)
I have been searching for a solution to this dilemma for many years and I’m so very happy to tell you that I have found a wonderful solution: Choose To Believe by Alan Tutt.
Choose To Believe
Choose to Believe is a book and an audio workshop which can be downloaded today and it contains everything you’ll ever need to succeed in developing more “useful” and empowering beliefs.
One reason why this system works so well and why it deserves my my ultimate recommendation, is that it addresses the important concept of dealing with “first things first” and that is something that many of the other available systems overlook.
Choose To Believe addresses all of the different types of belief that we have and hold and the topic of core beliefs is high on the agenda.
