The Power of the Mind: Understanding How Beliefs Shape Our Reality

What if I told you that your reality was a lie?

Okay, not an actual lie –

But what might seem true to you, isn’t necessarily true for everyone. 

You only perceive it as true, because that’s all you know. It’s the only reality you’ve been exposed to.

Here’s the thing:

Over the course of our lives, our subconscious mind ingests everything around us. It ingests every experience, it ingests rules set by your parents growing up, it ingests rules imposed by society, it ingests the things we hear on the news, and the things we’ve read. 

The list goes on and on…

Now these external factors influence our perception and our beliefs. These perceptions and beliefs become established and engrained in our subconscious mind – To the point that we accept them as our true reality. 

Our subconscious mind accepts these beliefs as our reality.  

The Mind Can Be Programmed

In fact, it already has been programmed! 

From the moment we are born, our minds are programmed with certain beliefs and perspectives based on the information and experiences that are fed to us. 

And it continues to be programmed and reprogrammed based on the information and experiences you take in on the daily!

Our minds are easily influenced by the world around us. 

The thing is, our minds are incredibly powerful tools that have the ability to shape our reality. They shape our perceptions of reality and the beliefs systems we carry with us throughout our life.

Society Conditions Us from the Moment We Are Born

Society is one of the biggest influencers of our belief systems. 

The minute we take our first breath on this Earth, we are conditioned to believe certain things about the world and about ourselves. Society teaches us what is acceptable and what is not, what is possible and what is impossible, and what is true and what is false. 

Societal conditioning poses its limits on us…

We believe we are limited beings with limited potential. But this is far from true.

We have the power to rise above these self-imposed limits. 

The mind can be re-programmed just as easily as it was programmed. 

With awareness, we can rewire our minds to new possibilities and reach our full potential as human beings.

Reprogramming The Subconscious Mind 

It takes a conscious mind to reprogram the subconscious mind. 

A consistent and unrelenting conscious mind. 

Reprogramming requires a conscious effort and a willingness to let go of old beliefs that no longer serve us.

Instead, we can focus on new beliefs, take in new information, experience new experiences  and completely change reality for ourselves.

By thinking new thoughts and shifting into new experiences, we can literally change the way our brain works. 

Simply by being conscious of our thoughts and the information we feed our mind, and by making a conscious effort to shift it – To experience new things, read new books, and turn off the dang news…

We build new neural connections in our brains. We form new neural patterns. We form a whole new belief system.

We completely reprogram our subconscious mind…

Understanding The Power of Belief Systems

The takeaway is this: Our beliefs shape our perceived reality – They can limit us, or enhance us.

Our beliefs are like a lens through which we view the world, and what we see is a reflection of those beliefs. 

If we believe that the world is a place of scarcity, we will see scarcity everywhere. 

But if we believe that the world is abundant, we will see abundance everywhere. 

Our beliefs have a direct impact on what we attract into our lives, so it’s important to be mindful of the beliefs that we hold.

And even more important than simply being mindful of the beliefs we hold, to be mindful of the fact that we are capable of CHOOSING what beliefs we hold.

You are not powerless. 

You have the ability to shape your reality. YOU can shape and filter your beliefs. One conscious thought at a time..

You are The Creator of Your Own Reality

You are the creator of your own reality and hold the power to shape your beliefs and perspectives. 

You can reprogram your subconscious mind. 

You can create the reality you wish for yourself and free yourself from the confined restraints society had pre-imposed on you. You can expand your thinking. 

So, embrace your inner power.

Be conscious. 

And make the conscious choice to change your reality if it’s no longer serving you.

Because, now you know, it is completely possible! 🙂
