The foundation of our psychological being happens to be based on our Belief System. Virtually every behavior and emotion stems from how we believe in things. Our beliefs affect the roots of every decision.
Consciously or subconsciously, our minds interacts the reality of how we perceive and adjust to every Life situation. If we say: “I believe in God” verses “I don’t believe that a God exists” or “I prefer conservatism as opposed to liberalism” that changes a multitude of adaptations of how we express ourselves throughout the day.
In simplistic form, our Belief System operates as an algorithm that processes how we value things. When we consider a value, we in turn set an attitude. It’s from our attitudes that we generate our behavior. Again, if we say “I belief in God,” then we carry faith in a higher intelligence, knowing that God loves you and will serve you when in need or just for the asking. But to believe that “God doesn’t exist,” puts the burden directly upon your own understanding and handling of my every day realities. That’s a major difference as it sets forth your attitude and behavior.
Similarly, when we orient ourselves as a conservative, our behavior tends to be more comfortable to keep things under control and consistent. Change is less likely to occur, and sustaining habits become the forefront of our expressed behavior. Keeping things copacetic becomes the motivational force. On the other hand, when one infers “Liberalism,” change becomes a motivational force. One might even presume that risk serves to enhance one’s circumstances.
What incorporates our Belief Systems? It can be the combination of many lifetime realities beginning with our ancestors. Yes, we can inherit beliefs. Beliefs have genetic properties or imprints passed along from generation to generation, as far back as Adam and Eve. “Wow!” you say. In our ZeRo Point Healing Sessions, we’ve uncovered many beliefs, which unfortunately were dysfunctional, and that will soon be discussed.
Beliefs also arrive based on our culture and family influences, especially parents. How we position ourselves in society can be directly related to influencing beliefs. But what leads the way to the development of our belief system and it’s renewal, happens to be our own daily experiences. A book, movie, or person can easily capture the essence of your future perceptions.
By and large, the unfoldment of our beliefs goes hand-to-hand with our enfoldment of wisdom gained as we live our Lives. As we live and learn, so does our Belief System. However, there are historical and dysfunctional beliefs that must be dealt with, as they tend to put heavy demands on our survival, social involvement and well-being.
Therapeutically, what we watch are the individual’s non-serving behaviors and attitudes driving that drive a certain unwanted behavior. From that, we seek to identify the values promulgating the problematic expressions. Behind every revealing value, a dysfunctional belief can be sought and hopefully eliminated. Several therapies are available to perform this removal including hypnosis, ZeRo Point Healings, and Gestalt therapy. Once removed, the void must be filled with positive constructs and in many cases, a healthy and creative belief.
One needs to constantly survey their Belief System to ascertain that this critical psychological process serves to empower growth and over-all well-being. Throughout the course of each day, the Soul provides a plethora of opportunities for us to learn who we really are, and where we are going. If we are lazy and bored with Life, there may be a major dysfunctional belief hindering our self-perceptions and awareness. The “Couch Potato” portrays such a situation. A good example of this dysfunction can be visualized simply as looking out a dirty window on a beautiful day, and declaring that the weather is bad.
Virtually every person could migrate from a dysfunctional to a well operative Belief System. We all have lessons to learn, to choose what is beneficial for us, and to grasp the future with excitement. When I hear an Olympian athlete speak about dealing with challenges and competition, I marvel at their candid and remarkable quest to succeed and enjoy the victory of pursuing the Gold.
In a nutshell, it’s society’s Belief System that perpetuates its culture and survival. The collective truly determines the societal’s government—whether Democrat or Republican, Socialist or Communist, Autocratic or Dictatorship—the power behind how people engage their beliefs eventually cultivates their government. The same rule governs a family as well as a corporation. The root of the individual and of society predicates itself on the Belief System sustained.
Needless to say, if you desire change, investigate your beliefs. These psychological foundations serve as the bases of your character. They are Soul driven, to say the least, and the drivers of our existence.
