If you were offered a free 30-year old computer, you wouldn’t accept it, because its operating system wouldn’t be able to run today’s software. But this is the situation with your Human Operating System – the beliefs you were programmed with during your first five or six years of life. Your H.O.S. is decades old. It’s time for an upgrade!
Beliefs are the fundamental reality-creating structure that shapes our experience of reality. Each belief functions as a tiny micro-machine that creates a particular experience. Like colored lenses held in front of our eyes, they color our perception of reality. Beliefs generate particular thoughts, feelings, sensations, and behaviors. Once a belief is installed in the mind and set in motion, it continues to create that particular experience at a subtle level from deep in the subconscious mind.
You can test this proposition easily. Feel what it feels like to hold this belief: “There is something wrong with me.” Say it out loud, as if it’s 100% true. Then feel the feelings it produces in your body. Where do you feel it? How does it affect you? Can you feel how it limits your potential? Now release that belief, as if you were taking off clothing that didn’t fit anymore, and discard it.
We all struggle at times with self-criticism, unpleasant reactions, or feelings of fear and doubt. Whatever is going on inside you, you can be sure that old, negative, limiting beliefs are operating in the background. Negative beliefs can stop people from moving forward in their lives. Positive, empowering beliefs can spur people on to greatness. Here’s the good news: beliefs can be easily changed.
Even the deepest programming from our childhood – our indoctrinated beliefs – can be transformed with the right technology. The BeliefCloset Process® is a way of permanently deleting beliefs from the core of the psyche, and replacing them with empowering beliefs that open new possibilities. Changing your beliefs is now as easy as changing your clothes.™
With the BeliefCloset methodology, you can elegantly upgrade your human operating system so it functions the way you want to function. The process is creative and enjoyable, and you can feel the results instantly.
Now that it’s spring, do a little spring-cleaning of your mind. Sweep the old programs out of your BeliefCloset, and make room for some snazzy new outfits – and new possibilities for your life.
