Many associate the word belief with religious connotations. That’s probably because most of us have been brought up in some form of religion or another and we have been taught that belief is the key in anything that we do.
I’d like to attempt to explain belief from a more “scientific” point of view.
Firstly, let me explain what my definition of belief is. I define belief as a knowingness that what we want already exists somewhere in the field of infinite potentiality. Some attribute this to God or the universe providing it for them when it is required. Others, like me, may see it as a co-ordinate somewhere in the axis of the infinite universe. Either way, it is a knowingness that what we want does exist.
So why is belief important? It’s because a belief keeps your hopes up despite your existing circumstances. That’s the other reason why I define it as a knowingness that what you want already exists, somewhere, as a co-ordinate in the universal energy field. When you know that an idea that comes to you, came to you because you have had a glimpse of the alternate “reality” that can occur, it aids in your belief that it will happen.
When you believe that there is an answer to every question, that there is a lesson behind every challenge and that we are never given any challenge that we cannot conquer, that represents your knowingness that there is perfection and order in chaos. It may seem insurmountable in your current circumstance, but if you use your imagination to start thinking about what you want and why you want it, and you couple that with the belief that you can overcome the situation before you, whilst you’re feeling good about the seemingly bad situation that you’re in, you will find that everything happens around you to support you in your belief.
Don’t believe me? Just read up on all the instantaneous remission stories or the stories of growth and courage and you will find loads of information out there. Yes, you will also find lots of sad and depressing gut-wrenching stories on the internet. So here’s my challenge for you: every time you come across a bad situation, look for the good in it. Why? Because behind every obstacle is the solution to the obstacle, but you cannot concentrate on the solution if you are not looking for the solution.
By looking for the good in everything, you will begin to shift your own vibration. How? By consciously looking for the good in every seemingly bad situation that you encounter, you are training your subconscious mind to also do the same. And in doing so, you are reprogramming your subconscious mind (and your brain and the cells in your body) to do always look for the good in a bad situation. You can also improve your health by doing so because the body is the instrument of the (subconscious) mind.
We all feel good when we know what we’re doing. This is where belief is important. If your belief correlates with your knowingness that there is a solution to your challenge, you will do whatever it takes to get you to there. You no longer wallow in anger and sadness as you continue searching for the solution. As you feel good about your search for the solution, you your subconscious mind tells the brain to release growth, happy and supportive hormones to maintain your body’s immune system and return the body to its perfection. You are perfect and so is your body: it is just your programming from over the years that told you otherwise.
The Law of Attraction works, but it should be understood that LOA is a secondary law. The primary law is the Law of Vibration. That is what makes up you and me and the rest of the universe. We attract that which is in harmony with the beliefs held in the subconscious mind, not what is held in our conscious mind.
The law of vibration always working. So if you’re working on LOA and you’re not getting the results that you’re after, you’ve got to stop and ask yourself a very personal question: what does my subconscious mind believe?
Realising this made a huge impact on my life and on my perception of how the universe works. Did my life change immediately? No, because I was reprogramming my subconscious mind based on constant spaced repetition. However, the change is a lasting one. At first, I was always searching for the cause of my son’s autoimmune disorder. I was looking to blame it on someone – anyone! When I decided to stop blaming, and to look for the solution to my challenge, my view of the universe changed. When I decided to believe that there is always a solution to a challenge, and we allow it to come to us, we will always be shown the solution. It may not come to us all at once; more often than not, it will be given to us in baby steps.
The key is to believe that anything is possible.
