Many of our core beliefs began when we were children and even at birth i.e.; abandonment issues, scarcity issues, the belief people are going to hurt us, life is a struggle, etc., etc., based on our different birth scenarios.
As children we were not capable of making rational decisions about certain experiences until our right and left brain have separated enough. This is what specialists call the Age of Reason. This doesn’t happen until about the age of seven or eight years old.
But we make many decisions early on in life that wouldn’t make sense to an adult, but make perfect sense to a child. These decisions based on misperceptions get pushed into the subconscious and run our lives as adults. Often, they become core beliefs that we act out as core issues.
We wonder why the same things keep happening to us, not realizing we are attracting in difficult situations based on these unconscious beliefs.
For instance, let’s say you had a toy that was taken away from you when you were a toddler. You may have misperceived and misunderstood what happened. The belief begins, “If I have something I love, it will be taken away.” (Believe it or not, this is a core belief I’ve seen arise for a lot of people.)
Later in life, this could play out in many different ways such as the inability to maintain loving relationships.
Breathwork is one of the few techniques that can access the unconscious mind to get to the memories where core beliefs began.Once you become aware of the core belief, you can work to heal it.
I would suggest that you go back into the old memory, but instead of seeing and experiencing the loss of the toy as a child, you see it replaced with something better. Let yourself feel deeply the simple joy of this. As you do, it will integrate into your subconscious mind so that you can attract lasting, loving relationships now.
As you allow yourself to correct these archaic beliefs and issues, you will see your life change for the better. And as always, I encourage you to remember your passion.
Best, Maren Nelson
