This reader’s question is a common fear-based one. I hear all the time, expressed in many ways.
IF I LET GO OF OLD BELIEFS, WON’T I LOSE SOMETHING OF MYSELF?
In my book, “How to Make the Most of Your Earth Experience (14 Principles for Living Unconditional Love),” I talk about how the question is the answer wanting to reveal itself to you.
If you never tune into the answer to this question—and don’t make full peace with it—then you won’t get around to fully living the innate power of your Divine Soul.
Not facing the answer makes creating the life you want—especially the one you came here to live—more difficult than trying to make a good pasta with no boiling water in the pot.
HOWEVER, if you do take the time to discover and make peace with the answer, it can launch you into new emotional freedoms grander than you can possibly imagine from your current perspective.
So, here goes.
Whether you want to learn to stand up for yourself, speak out, learn to bi-locate, and everything else in between…
…there’s a basic fear dynamic playing behind the scenes in your psyche. Let’s get the fear out of the way so we can get to the answer.
“If I let go of old beliefs, won’t I lose something of myself?”
Chances are that question has passed through your mind at some point, too. It’s connected to one of the most common unconscious fears you’ll ever face when working with the power of Unconditional Love, and using Divine Light Vibrations for transforming past conditioning into illumination.
It holds us back. Keeps our ego intellect busily engaged with making sure we don’t move forward on living the life we came here on Earth to live.
How you face it (or avoid it), directly impacts the quality of Divine Light Vibrations as they move through you, waiting to be formed into something concrete.
It also conditions us to approach our spiritual awakening intellectually, rather than really allowing ourselves to merge with our Divine Soul Knowing.
Because it touches our biggest fear of all: The fear of death.
The Fear of Death will kill a good life faster than anything.
To some, that might seem like a big leap. The fear of death? Give me a break! No, it’s not connected. Not connected at all.
Do you ever resist letting go of old beliefs? And wonder why you’re not getting the results you want? Resistance creates pain, or dullness, but certainly not freedom. Where does that resistance come from?
Why do you think people come back from near death experiences so radically changed and full of love? They’ve come face to face with death, and realized in a concrete way that it’s nothing to fear at all.
I talk about how I first came face to face with my fear of death in the podcast with Peggy Freeh.
When you think about it, all fears stem from the fear of death. Letting go of old beliefs represents a little death of the old to make way for the new.
The fear of death is written in our very DNA from the time of dinosaurs. Since there aren’t dinosaurs roaming the Earth anymore, what’s an ego intellect to do? It changes the object of the fear of dinosaurs and physical danger, and then projects it out onto the unknown where all kinds of dangers could possibly exist, even if they don’t.
Sure, intellectually you know there aren’t any dinosaurs hanging around. But today’s world feeds that base fear with violence, wars, reports of both in our news outlets, as well as emotional power games of all types built into the very fabric of our social structures.
So it’s no wonder we’ve created a fear of losing ourselves when letting go of old beliefs.
When letting go of old beliefs, and asking them to be transformed by the power of Divine Light Vibrations (aka Unconditional Love), will you lose something of yourself?
Yes. You will absolutely lose something of yourself!
And it’s really a good thing.
THE BIGGEST THING YOU’LL LOSE is the psychological weight that’s been holding you back.
If that answer relieves any and all resistance to letting go of old beliefs, feel free to skip to the bottom of the page for your action plan. If you’re not quite ready, read on.
To help your ego intellect to face the fear of death, let’s use a little practical reasoning. Once it does, it won’t feel the need to project imagined dinosaur threats into the unknown when letting go of old beliefs.
Remember, the question is the answer wanting to reveal itself to you, so let me ask you this:
It would keep you from dancing life freely, and sleeping soundly. It would weigh you down to the point that you couldn’t walk upright, and would create problems with your physical health.
The only thing you get in return is you can proudly say you own all those useless rocks.
If we were hanging out together and I asked you that, you’d probably laugh at the absurdity of the question.
Hanging onto your past conditioning is like carrying a back pack filled with useless rocks.
Are you with me?
Back to the fear of death.
In effect, when you let go of old beliefs and ask Divine Light Vibrations to transform them, the weight of that past conditioning dies. It moves on, and turns into another form. Forever.
Well, unless you feel like recreating it. But that means you weren’t really ready to let go of the rocks.
It’s your free choice, of course.
If that doesn’t sound like such a good deal, and you’re tired of carrying those rocks, then go ahead and ask the Infinite Intelligence, All-Knowing Wisdom, and All-Powerful Unconditional Love of Divine Light Vibrations to transform the “rocks” of your past conditioning into the lightness of illumination.
In its place, the Unconditional Love of your Divine Soul Knowing will be born on deeper levels of your human psyche. It’ll rise up from within, and weave itself into the fabric of your daily life on new levels.
My suggestion when letting go of old beliefs?
Don’t let the fear of physical death hold you back.
TAKE IT IN BABY STEPS.
Lighten your load, one rock at a time.
Put your limiting belief from the past in the embrace of Unconditional Love, and let Divine Light Vibrations transform it into the lightness of illumination.
You’ll be so glad you did!
You won’t lose anything of your real self. You’ll find YOU—THE INFINITE YOU—and you are amazing!
On a side note: In the photo, I was on my first trip to India, and clowning around about the weight of my back pack. It was a key experience to letting go of old beliefs that told me I needed all that stuff. I was much smarter about packing on my second trip. Transformation into illumination is infinitely practical AND concrete.
When you’re ready to release the weight of old fears, here’s your kick-starter action plan…
(Because knowledge without action is a Mind Game at best.)
Basic process for transforming old beliefs using the power of Unconditional Love.
- Write down 5 old beliefs that are holding you back.
- On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being the heaviest), give each one a number to indicate how heavy it weighs on you.
- Do the Basic Activation of Divine Light Vibrations guided meditation. (You got access to that when you signed up. **In case you didn’t bookmark it, you can find the link at the bottom of any email from me.) Not signed up yet? CLICK HERE.
- Place your attention behind your solar plexus and the concept of having an Infinite Divine Soul that’s always guiding you to your highest good.
- Release the heaviest one to the Infinite Intelligence, All-Knowing Wisdom, and All-Powerful Unconditional Love of Divine Light Vibrations.
- Ask for the old belief to be transformed into illumination.
- Relax into the sensations of your Divine Soul’s Unconditional Love and acceptance.
- Imagine what your life will be like now that you are no longer influenced by the weight of that old belief. Your Divine Soul will guide you in this.
- Afterwards, make a note to remind yourself that you now no longer carry that rock. Our ego intellects do so love old habit patterns, so create a transitional mantra for yourself.
