Why What You Believe Matters

The ideas you have matter

Most people never realise that our beliefs and what we believe in truly matters. If you believe that life is hard, then life will be hard. It’s a self fulfilling prophecy. If on the other hand you believe that life is easy, then it will be.

That doesn’t mean that there won’t be effort involved because that goes without saying – effort to achieve anything is a must. What it does mean is that you get what you believe in.

I was listening to a conversation between a group of people that were talking about the idea of manifestation. They’d watched “The Secret” and felt that it was a load of rubbish, that the idea of manifestation is not true.

Again, we get what we believe in and if we don’t believe that manifestation is possible then it won’t be. Whatever it is, if you don’t believe it, then it isn’t going to be. The thing to remember is this:

First you have to believe, then you can receive.

This rule has been told to us time and again by various people. The same law is in the bible:

Matthew 21:22 (KJV) – “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”

Your brain

Our brains are self guiding mechanisms – I don’t think I could point this out often enough. That means that whatever you set your mind on, your brain will take it on as a command and head for just that outcome. Whether you want it or not.

The difference between achieving something or not is the strength of belief you put behind it. This is what your brain will focus on and direct you towards. It’s as if something else is controlling your fate, but actually it is your thoughts and your beliefs. Your brain acts like a self guiding missile that will take you where you have programmed it to go.

The path it takes can be erratic but it will always hit it’s mark. To your benefit or your detriment. So believing in the best in you life improves your mental state as well as the outcome of your life.

That energy

So the belief in being able to manifest anything you desire is not down to some “magic” but to the way our brain and our mind work.

As humanity we are continuously discovering that everything around us is energy, that nothing is a solid as we think it is, that everything is about frequency, vibration and energy. And why should our thoughts be any different to that?

Have you noticed that you seem to attract a certain type of person, whether in a relationship or in your friendships? Why is that?

It’s because of the energy you are putting out, the beliefs you have. Other people subconsciously know then, feel them and are attracted or repulsed by them. This is why the only way to change your life is by changing the way you think about things. When you change the way you think of them, your energy is different and, if you are “not into” the energy side of things, your brain and your mind are given new goals to aim for.

Everything you think about, everything you believe in, has a signature to it, an energy. Change that and you will change your life.

Seeing is believing

For most people, they will not believe anything until they see it with their own two eyes.

So allow me to challenge that thought. When you last wanted to do something, what was the first step? The answer is that first you had to think of it – first is the idea. From the idea you create some kind of plan of how you are going to go about making it happen. And all the time images come up in your mind.

If it’s something simple and attainable, you will have no issue whatsoever believing that it’s possible. For example, say you want to travel and you have the finances to make it happen you will believe it. But if the finances are not there, you’ll say that it can’t happen, it’s illogical. It’s only illogical because you don’t see the money in your hand or your account, at the moment. But what if you simply believed that it’s possible? It’s also just an idea, right?

And that is where things go wrong. We say that it will work for this but not for that. Well, the rule is simple and there is only one rule – you get what you believe in, what you focus on, what you think is possible for you.

In every case there has to be some form of action on your part. You must act with faith and belief that the outcome is inevitable.

Say it till you believe it

In a way that is what the idea behind affirmations is. To repeat something until you have believed it. You are in a way brainwashing yourself. But there is a method to the madness.

And it goes back to your brain, because when you believe that something is possible, your brain, your mind will make it into a goal and aim for it. Hence the saying, “Fake it till you make it”. By faking it you are telling your mind that that is the way things are. Our subconscious doesn’t know the difference between a fact and fiction – it believes whatever you tell it.

It internalises anything you believe in, what you are emotionally attached to.

So if you want to achieve success, whatever that means for you, but don’t believe it’s possible… it’s a self fulfilling prophecy. No belief, no emotion to make it happen, no action, no “manifestation”

Don’t think that manifestation is making something happen out of nothing, like a magic trick. There is sense behind all of it. One part is how our brain works, the other is all the energy that we are part of and surrounds us.

What you believe in, what you think you can and can’t do, can and can’t have are all possibilities that you create. All it takes is a shift in thinking.

That is where the real magic happens – the creation of a belief in your mind.

Pretending is the fastest way to believing, and believing is the fastest way to receiving.
