Clearing Negative Beliefs
Just reading Shakti Gawain’s Reflections in the Light, and found this “Clearing” exercise to be very helpful for myriad issues: establishing a home yoga ractice, reigniting your spiritual path, cutting out sugar, getting a new job that aligns better with your values, etc.
This is quoted directly from Shakti’s book.
Here is a basic clearing process that you can use to clear out negative beliefs in order to attain a goal. First, state your goal in the form of an affirmation. Second, write “The reasons I can’t have what I want are:” and then start listing every thought that comes into your head. Third, decide which of the negative statements have the most power over you, and make a mark by those. Write an affirmation to counteract each one. Meditate on these affirmations every day along with your original goal.
I am now clearing my negative beliefs.
