    Lightbulb How Changing Your Beliefs Actually Changes the World Around You

    By Gilbert Ross on Saturday October 7th, 2017



    Change Starts Inside of You

    I always notice a basic fault when I hear people talk about hoping for change in the world. It’s the idea that we see the notion of change as something happening outside of us, driven by some faceless group of elite scientists, inventors and leaders coming up with some revolutionary idea that would set the world on a different course.
    The fault with this notion is that it comes from the same mold which gave form to the problem in the first place–separation. We feel that we are separate from all the atrocities happening in different corners of the world; separate from shady global deals done in the interest of the few; separate from the marvelous work done by selfless peacekeepers and volunteers; separate from the bloodied hands of our previous generations and the problems of the next generations.
    We think that we are helpless, innocent and powerless in the face of all this and that the change we expect ‘has’ to come from others, individuals, collectives or nations.

    The Pain of Separation

    When we look at the world outside, we constantly see problems. We see real world problems such as overpopulation, energy crisis, water scarcity, the destruction of our environment, health hazards, etc. We also see degenerative and auto-destructive patterns of behaviour such as greed, materialism, madness, over-consumerism and the general disenchantment with the world and the universe. In short, we see modern man as having lost his soul and disconnected with his spirit and the natural world.
    When we look at the world outside, we constantly see problems.
    When you think of it, in fact, all of these problems we see are rooted in separation. Humanity seems to be off course because we have separated ourselves from our ancestral wisdom, our enchantment with the magical universe, with ourselves, with our being. We have increasingly ingrained in us the false idea of individual freedom at the cost of community welfare. We feel that we have the freedom to be separate from our global community and affairs that affect the millions. So the recurrent theme is separation.

    Wearing the Inside Out

    On another level, we fail to see that our outer world, with all its blessings and problems, is merely a projection of our inner world, both individually and collectively. Wars, atrocities, eco-destruction and restlessness are nothing more than a projection of what is happening internally, on a deeper psychic level. The state of the world we are in is nothing more than the state we are in internally, on a collective level. Once again, we feel there is a separation between our internal and outer reality which is basically nothing more than a mere illusion. On a positive note, the good change we are starting to witness is also a reflection of our nascent change in consciousness, first on an individual, then collective, scale.

    Re-programming Your Reality

    I feel that the idea to work with is that before we expect any mass changes to the afflictions we see in the world around us, we should start experimenting with changing the immediate reality around us, equipped with the idea that we can bend our personal reality by shifting how we face the world and interact with it. As the iconic quote from Gandhi goes:
    Be the change you want to see.
    We have the power to transform ourselves and the world around us.
    We start shifting our reality not by gaining anything new but by releasing and letting go of years of conditioning and self-limiting beliefs. Here are some beliefs we ought to start adopting, while letting go of their complete opposite, if we really want to start seeing the change happening around us:

    1) You are Always Part of the Equation of Life

    When we feel disconnected we lose our real power. That power is the feeling of being one with life–of being an integral part of the equation. Again, the human ‘dis-ease’ is that we feel separate from, and powerless over, the currents of our life stream.
    When we realign ourselves with the belief that we are part of the whole eco-system of life with its subtleties and magic, we create a powerful inner conviction that enables us to trust and have faith in whatever is happening. This is the magical ingredient for staying in tune with our highest potential and unblocking those obstacles that keep us from moving forward and changing our reality.

    2) You Can Empower Yourself to be the Change You Want

    We are embedded in a system that is programmed to disempower us and conditions us into believing that change happens outside of us. Yet, when we listen closer to our heart, we realise that this empowerment or disempowerment is only in our hands. If we allow ourselves to be ground down by the machinery of the system, then that is what we create.
    We shift our reality by letting go of conditioning and self-limiting beliefs.
    If, on the other hand, we take charge of our life and destiny and encourage ourselves with the idea that only we have the power to make the change, we are turning the tables on the system. We start becoming free hearts and free thinkers. The shackles no longer bind us because we become masters of our own destiny.

    3) You are a Co-Creator of your own Reality

    It’s a simple but powerful truth really. You are the co-creator of your own reality. Look at your life, the state you are now in–whether good or bad. You had a big say to create all that, whether you are conscious of it or otherwise. Since we are agents in our own life, we make choices, interact, dream and act, we are undeniably co-creators of our own reality. The more we catch up with the idea and consciously take hold of it, the more we can co-create and change our life positively.

    4) Healing is Losing the Sense of Separateness and Fear

    If you consciously look deep into yourself, you will find a constant yearning for healing; for restoring your being. This is a constant spiritual quest that we look for in different ways, at different times in our life. What this healing really means is remembering who we really are–our real power, our humanity and divinity at the same time. Most of all, healing is transcending fear and our sense of separateness.
    Healing is remembering our real power, our humanity and our divinity.
    It is important then to always remember that we can heal ourselves by moving away from fear and the belief that we are disconnected and alone in a hostile universe, to one where we have faith that no matter how our life fluctuates, it’s all fine, since we are supported by an infinite source of love and power.

    5) Others are Allies to your Co-Creations

    The sense of separation continues to be reinforced by the sense of ‘us and them’. We feel that others can be a threat to our own wellbeing and happiness. We see them as possible competitors in a limited pool of resources. We enter into the survival mindset.
    This is all very counterproductive at best. The more we let go of the sense of fear and separateness (thus being healed), the more we see others as potential allies and contributors to our own co-creations. This cannot be otherwise if we start from the premise that everything is interconnected and that we are an integral part of the equation of life (see point number one).
    People who have become conscious co-creators of their own destiny know the true value and power in this. They understand the importance of helping, sharing, trusting and giving out, while getting in. They understand human nature more intimately, knowing that each and every person, no matter how his or her outer behaviour can be off-putting, carries the same potential for healing themselves, others and the world around them.
    Become the change you want to see in yourself and the world.

    6) You can Always Change the Channel you Tune into

    Another fundamental truth that has been echoed in various forms, is that everything is ultimately energy and vibration at different levels of frequency; from very low, soul-wrenching vibrations to elevating, exhilarating frequencies of love and bliss. You have the power and freedom to choose which channel to tune into. Negative self-talk, self-limiting beliefs, fear, cynical friends, etc., will keep you stuck in a reality that vibrates at low frequency, so to speak.
    On the other hand, opening your heart to new experiences and adventures, doing more of the things you like, being grateful, surrounding yourself with exciting people, and not being afraid to love, will help you shift into a frequency bandwidth that will make you attract more of the same goodness and excitement. It will literally make you become the change you want to see in yourself and the world.
    It’s basically about tuning into and attracting the energy vibrations you would like to see more of in your reality. Thus, while you are tuning into higher frequencies and tuning out of the lower ones, you are co-creating a meaningful and positive personal reality which ultimately is projected and manifested in the world. The result is that you would be creating the change you want to see in this world. On a collective level, this would be the beginning of a new earth.

    My thoughts exactly.
    Consider focusing your energy on the positives in life rather than wasting energy arguing about such things as politics, religion, the lunatics running the world, etc...

    Awesome post Dynamo. Thank you.
    Abraham Hicks videos are very useful here. They continuously advise the positive, not holding on to perceived painful actions of others and how our thoughts are the attractors of experiences.
    Also, Stuart Wilde follows along these lines. He has since passed but, he is informative and so funny.

    Love this thread!!! Thank you, Dynamo.

    Changing ourselves takes dedication, devotion, and practice. Living from the inside-out empowers us to be our best.

    My daily meditation practice takes me deep within each morning. Time in nature, inner reflection throughout the day, stating attuned to the divine vibrations all helps to achieve what you present so beautifully in yor OP.

    Reminders, encouragement, and support are welcome, appreciated, and loved...as are you.
    Same goes to all of the wonderful souls on this forum.

    Love to all,
    MM

    Dynamo,

    That's beautiful! Thank you so much! I like your message because it doesn't start and end with 'self.' I feel we have to focus on compassion and community. When we have problems it's a good idea to help those who are worse off. It ennobling, narrows the gulf of separation and extends 'responsibility to self' to 'responsibility for all,' which is the greatest of life's purposes.

    One practical way to change the world around one is to practice Ho'Oponopono:

    Quote Posted by Hervé (here)
    Now... if you can "Love thy enemy"... why not yourself?

    There is where Ho'oponopono comes into the picture so that the programming that attracts whatever is out there can be incapacitated and/or disabled:

    ************************************************** *********

    When Joe Vitale met with Dr. Hew Len and asked him how exactly he managed to heal these violent patients without actually seeing each of them in person, his answer was:
    “I didn’t heal them. I healed [the] part of myself that created them.”
    To me that was the most fundamental revelation to date. That phrase alone explains the most important presumption of Ho’oponopono:

    You are 100% responsible for everything. Everything and everywhere! And it means not only your personal screwups and your personal successes. If means if someone somewhere did something and you became aware of that – you are 100% responsible for that.

    Ho’oponopono is not your free ticket to guilt trip. Being 100% responsible is not the same as feeling infinitely guilty for miseries. It’s a reminder of your creative powers and gentle welcome to return back to your inner nature. That is to Zero. Joe Vitale wrote a great book on the subject called Zero Limits. When you're returning back to your most inner nature – to Zero – everything becomes available to you effortlessly and you are being driven by inspiration from Divinity, not by petty ego wants. Ho’oponopono’s Zero is the same thing that Eckhart Tolle names Unmanifested.

    Back to practical reality – let assume that Zero is the next great thing after sliced bread. Or, even, before sliced bread. Whatever. How do we get to that “magical” state? What, exactly, needed to be done?


    This is achieved by constant cleaning process. Cleaning is the actual Ho’oponopono practice. Cleaning what? You clean yourself from subconscious garbage – programs that run your life without your participation.

    Apparently Ho’oponopono process is very simple. Actual Ho’oponopono cleaning process consists of repetitions of the following phrases:
    • I Love You
    • Please forgive me
    • I am sorry
    • Thank you
    These phrases repeated will ignite the self transformation process for the practitioner. This is exactly what Dr. Hew Len did to invite divine transformation powers for his surrounding during his work at the Hawaiian mental hospital.

    I love using ho'oponopono! Thanks for this reminder, Herve!!

    Vigilance is about maintaining this high vibrational way of Being. I'm attempting to ingrain these higher frequencies (entrain my brainwaves) into my consciousness so they are anchored and stabilized.

    I'm really thinking this is the best defense against the radiation and lower frequencies that are put out there to entrain and trap us into lower frequencies that cause bad health. Very peaceful solutions, indeed.

    Consciously clearing old programs; consciously choosing new programs. REAL internal changes to the electrical/nervous system.
