You have a choice:
Use the checklist and/or
Use the forms to walk you through what to do.
WHY DO IT THIS WAY?
People who mean well adopt affirmations and/or intentions. These all represent a form of "end goal", a place we want to "get to." However, many of these people do not get the results they desire, too many times falling back into being the victim of the old beliefs.
Not getting the desired result is always an indication of leaving something out and not going through the powerful completion process.
Basically to "get to" any end goal, we must lay out the entire trip, all the steps on how we are going to get there.
Shortcuts, or ways around something, just don't work.
So sad. Too bad. But in the end you'll be glad...
THE CHECKLIST: A BASIS FOR A PLAN TO "GET THERE"
1. Specify your "end-goal". How would you like to believe, feel, look at the world, or.... You may modify or refine it or them to a more powerful statement later.
2. Decide the supporting resources you will use and how. You should do the work and, if possible, access help from those who can help you refine it and be more complete (but you need to do all the basic work yourself first). Who will be a good resource?
3. Carry the thought process all the way out to the extreme and ridiculous in order to find the end-fear and the underlying major beliefs that support the derived beliefs. Review the complete list of "Specific Beliefs" in the Beliefs And Thoughts Detailed Contents/Links to find some of your beliefs and especially the core, underlying beliefs that support the derived beliefs - as there will be a domino effect on those beliefs when you knock out the supporting belief. Use the Forms, especially consider the Thought Change Long Form. Use the Truth Testing Process.
4. Refine the "end-goal" affirmations and intentions, using a powerful positive statement, not a "not" statement. ("I feel relaxed and confident that I am able to...". "I feel powerful and I shall never doubt being enough." Or any such thing that represents what you want to arrive at believing and "feeling".)
5. Use your support person to review your whole plan so that you are completing properly and powerfully. (Changing even one major belief has a number of pieces to it that require a plan of steps to carry out between where one is and where one wants to be.)
6. Install the corrected belief fully.
Review it and the reasoning behind it daily for 21 days, then weekly until
memorized (you could come up with the belief at any time it is asked of you).
misunderstood and poorly constructed and are thus ineffective or only weakly
The above will take up quite a bit of time, but for those who want a preview or perspective ahead of time, you might wish to glance at this. But, please remember that we must still be carefully of getting diverted such that we do not go deeply enough nor completely enough in whatever topic or task we would benefit from completing!!!
