Your core beliefs are the ideals that you base your life upon. They affect everything you say and do and think. Because of that, at various times throughout our lives, we each need to pause and examine our core beliefs to see if they are still relevant to the way we choose to live our life.
Ask yourself: What are the core beliefs driving my life? How have I changed? How has the world changed? Are the core beliefs I have built my life upon still the most worthy choices for me or should I be adjusting by examining new core beliefs?
Pause to look at what is more important to you at this point in time. Make new choices – or strengthen your resolve around the core beliefs you choose to keep.
What do you believe in now? How are those beliefs impacting your life? How have they changed as you gain more clarity and insight? What’s important to you at this point in your life? What do you need to explore, contemplate, change in yourself in order to make certain your core beliefs are serving our collective consciousness in this changing world, that they reflect who you have become and what you hold as most important?
What are your current core beliefs?
“Core beliefs” is an elusive term. Stop right now and say aloud three of your core beliefs. I’ll bet it’s a bit tricky to come up with them because we don’t often pause to examine the subtle beliefs that are at the core of every response we have. We simply unconsciously let our beliefs guide every step we take and every decision we make.
Unconsciously! Without thinking or examining or asking questions!
It would make sense for us all to examine our core beliefs and make certain they support our current life path and experience.
What core beliefs did you identify and how are they affecting your life?
I had to figure out what my core beliefs are. Then I looked to see how I’ve changed and how/if my core beliefs needed to change. I wanted to identify core concepts that will support and comfort and guide me in today’s chaotic world. It wasn’t enough to identify them, I had to prioritize them so I knew what was important to me, what was driving my life, the beliefs I was building my life upon.
Shift from “me” to “we”
One of the hardest things to do is to change your mind. Particularly when you are so sure you are right. But “right” means different things to each person. “Right” is usually based on how much you know about a situation, the alternate solutions/possibilities you have taken time to explore, and your willingness to change your thinking as you gather new information.
In my opinion, the most powerful shift we can make in our core beliefs is to move from “me” to “we.”
What are the core beliefs that influence every choice you make?
Core Belief #1: We are all one
My foundational core belief that drives everything I think or say or do is that we are one energy. All one interconnected energy in the Emptiness That Holds Everything. That means everything I think or say or do – or believe – affects the whole. And what you think and say and believe affects me.
If you embrace this core belief that everyone is one source energy, that means that you are energetically one with the guy down the street you don’t like very much. It means we are energetically one with the people doing really bad things to others.
No, I don’t like that either. But we are all one Primal Source Energy. And that very interconnection makes it possible for both of us to influence the whole – for better or worse. Our thoughts have power. When we focus, we can shift the consciousness of the world.
We are like a Cosmic Ocean in which our actions ripple out to affect the whole, in which giant waves ebb and flow and affect the whole even as they are a part of the whole. And like a Cosmic Soup, my “seasoning” affects the whole. As does yours. That means that what I do in my life affects the lives of others, as my actions ripple out over our Cosmic Ocean of Oneness. That’s a big responsibility.
And I’m standing here being swamped by waves from the actions of others.
I get to choose what part of the ocean I live in. I may be an active wave crashing against the cliffs, or a tranquil reflective lagoon. I get to choose my place of service in the Cosmic Ocean.
So, my primary core belief is that we are all one Primal Energy and that my actions ripple out and affect the whole.
What am I sending out?
Knowing myself to be an impactful ripple in our world will cause me to be mindful of my choices and my actions. My words and my deeds. My thoughts and my beliefs. It opens me up to empathy and compassion and unconditional love – for me – and since we are all one energy, unconditional love for all others.
Is one of your core beliefs that we are all one? It will make a powerful impact on your life if it is.
Core Belief #2: We are capable of giving and receiving unconditional love
Another core belief I’m working to build my life upon, is that Unconditional Love is at the core of the Primal Source. My first step in embracing that core belief is to learn to accept unconditional love for myself. Then I can learn to extend unconditional love to others.
Accepting unconditional love for yourself can be tricky. You know your flaws and shortcomings intimately, so accepting those, being patient with your own unfolding life process, loving yourself in spite of how you see yourself is a valuable place to start to understand and experience giving yourself the unconditional love that’s there for you. Learn to accept unconditional love into your life.
Loving yourself unconditionally is a powerful place to begin to change your experience of our world. If you are not worthy of unconditional love, who is? You cannot give love to others until you give it to yourself. Begin by loving yourself.
When you learn to love yourself, your entire life will change. You will learn the power of love and feel your own value in the world. Then you will understand and accept how powerful unconditional love is and turn and radiate it into your world.
We’re talking unconditional love here. Compete acceptance.
Pause a moment in the here and now to accept and feel and experience that you are wrapped in unconditional, all-encompassing love. Accept that love – unconditionally.
Extend your conscious practice of loving yourself to others
Is one of your core beliefs that you are deserving of unconditional love? Is one of your core beliefs that everyone is deserving of unconditional love?
The wall between you and others is built inside you. You are the only one who can take it down. When you begin to make room for a deeper connection with others by extending unconditional love both inward and outwardly, your experiences will expand and fill your heart!
We’re building on two core beliefs here. We are One Light Energy. We each deserve and accept unconditional love.
Core Belief #3: We are totally responsible for what happens in our own life
We create our own life experience. We do that by our beliefs, our thoughts and our actions. No one does it to us. We “do it” to ourselves by what we believe we deserve and what we believe is possible.
Think about that. You draw into your life what you think you deserve. That means accepting unconditional love for yourself because you deserve it. What you believe is possible creates the parameters of what unfolds. It can be limiting or expansive. It’s your choice. What do you believe you deserve and what do you believe is possible?
When you accept that we are all one energetic source, and that we are all connected, it means that the unconditional love you focus and share comes back to you to create and enhance your life experience.
Change your thinking, change your life
Core Belief #4 Our focused thoughts can change our life experience
Our thoughts create our reality. That means the focus of our thoughts should be monitored and purposefully directed. When our thoughts are aimed at the highest good, they have great power, they have the ability to create positive change. In order to rise above the chaos in our current planetary experience, we must carefully and consciously choose the focus of our thoughts.
A simple way to change your life experience is to focus on simply being the light that we are and joining with other light beings who are also focusing on the highest good for our world. That shift in focus has the power to change our life experience. It doesn’t take away from the physical plane activism we may choose to do and it allows us to energetically join with others all over the world who are raising their vibration by focusing on peace and unconditional love.
Not everyone can see their own light, let alone the light in others, but we are all over the world, often finding each other online in groups focused on a specific cause. Whatever your focus, go online and find those who are holding energetic gatherings that will raise the collective consciences. Join your energy with theirs and feel the collective power.
There are other Light Beings working to heal the planet. Find them.
Examine your core beliefs for relevance and adjustments
Our core beliefs are the foundation stones upon which we build our lives. You may still be standing on stones you don’t even know are there. You may have put them in place as a child, from what your parents told you or what you experienced as a child. Now you are an adult with some life experience and you need to examine your foundational beliefs again.
For each core belief you select, ask: “Does this foundation stone still reflect what my experience of life has shown me and is it supportive of the direction I am want to take my life? Is this foundational belief still serving me in the midst of the changes of today?” Then adjust your core beliefs to shape the life you want to live.
What are your current core beliefs?
We have considered these four core beliefs but there are many more possibilities.
- We are all one energy. Our actions and choices affect and influence the whole.
- We are capable of giving and receiving unconditional love. Begin by loving yourself.
- We are responsible for our life experience.
- Our focused thoughts can change our life experience
What are the core beliefs that are guiding your life?
