Marina made a comment under a different subject, and it made me think about some false beliefs I am holding onto at the present time. I thought the reply fitted better in 'addictions' as I feel holding onto our false beliefs is about fears and addictions to doing so (especially once we are aware of them).
Link to original post is below:
I feel it is essential to remind ourselves and get to a place of knowing this in our soul's that our false beliefs are NOT real. We need to acknowledge the false belief and feel about why it is there etc, BUT I feel that it is actually dangerous to continue to tell yourself it is ‘real’ because you are reinforcing it and justifying holding onto it when from God’s perspective it is not real and it is not the truth.I have wanted and still want the control and anger because I do not trust that any love can be offered to me in any other, more gentler space.
I am aware it is a false belief, but it is real, and I have to acknowledge that.
I just notice that I hold not ‘false beliefs’ in order to avoid feeling God's Truth on those matters.
I am noticing how addicted I am to holding on to, remaining in and continuing to believe my false beliefs (about all sorts of things, enter yours here). Sometimes I even convince myself it is 'safer' to stay there. But this is not the truth, i am just lying to myself, or trying to get away with unloving behaviours, and the Law of Attraction is a constant messenger showing me that I am in more danger - emotionally, physically and spiritually, when I remain working against God's Laws than when I embrace God's Truth.
Mary once gave me a really great exercise to do:
- 1. Draw up two columns,
2. Write down on one side the false belief/s you are working with (do it for every belief you find if you want to) - you can go into as much detail as you like, like where it came from, how your parents, friends, society, self feels about this issue etc, etc
3. Write down on the other side God’s Truth on the issue (if you don’t know put in what might be the most loving option you can imagine at this time)
4. Then feel/grieve the difference between your belief and how God feels about it. The feeling is the most important bit and if you are open to feeling you won’t need to do the exercise. For me it helped to just begin to think about God’s Truth rather than holding onto my own false beliefs all the time which was making me miserable!
I thought others may find it a helpful starting point
