How to deal with FALSE beliefs

First of all what is a false belief? Something they believe that is false but appears real. For instance a false belief is “ I can not have a healthy relationship. I never have and never will due to my past. This is only true unless you take an action to change your pattern. If you are willing to do the work and change your mindset and behavior. Then it will not be true. Another example is “ I will fail this test.” This may not be true. How would you feel if you changed that belief and did the work to pass the test? One more example is having a false belief that you are not smart enough. Look back in your history and see all the ways you can prove to yourself that you are smart; graduating from HS or college, your job history and how you have performed well. Replace” I am not smart enough with “ I am smart enough and if I need support I can ask for help or look up the information.” There is a difference in how you talk to yourself  and your brain believes what you speak is either negative thought or positive thought.

Now you can see how false beliefs may not be real. How can you take action to change this belief? Well there are many ways. EMDR: Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing is a form of psychotherapy in which the person being treated is asked to recall distressing images; the therapist then directs the patient in one type of bilateral stimulation, such as side-to-side eye movement or tapping either side of the body. (Wikipedia) This is one way to change how you think and react to false beliefs. Let me give you some more tools. Meditation can support changing these false beliefs. When one mediates and focuses on your breathing it can change your vibration and you can focus on changing the false belief to a positive one instead. NLP: Neurolinguistics is the study of how language is represented in the brain that is, how and where our brains store our knowledge of the language that we speak, understand, read, and write, what happens in our brains as we acquire that knowledge, and what happens as we use it in our everyday lives.

Our brains are like hardwear in a computer. One can change it out from a tape of a false brief to a positive belief that supports you. I just explained a few ways to focus on changing your FALSE beliefs. Once you decide on which direction and tool you wish to practice, I recommend getting support. There are counselors and therapists that are trained in all these different techniques. Life coaches can support you also.
