Everyone Has Limiting Beliefs

My guest, Transformation Coach and Shamanic Practitioner, Katie Augustyn spoke with me in detail about how we all have limiting beliefs. The important thing is to realize you can identify and transform them to open new possibilities in your life.

Just because you believe something doesn’t make it true or right. Most limiting beliefs are detrimental and hold you back. Katie and I dig into this topic to help listeners realize that you can identify and banish these thoughts to shift your life for the better.

Often your limiting beliefs are from the subconscious mind and formed when people are younger. Many times they are adopted from parents or ancestors without even realizing it.

All beliefs are not bad – some are actually very helpful, like believing you are capable, beautiful or smart. Belief in yourself is vital to your self-esteem. Your parents give you plenty of messages about who you are – good and bad.

For example, as a child if you didn’t clean up your room, they might have said you were lazy. That could have sunk in deeply and become a self-fulfilling prophecy that undermines your energy and how you get things done.

How to Identify Limiting Beliefs

1. What You Think

One of the best ways to identify your limiting beliefs is to tune into your thoughts. Let’s say you hear about a job and then decide you don’t want to go for it. It gives you a clue about what is going on underneath. What limiting beliefs could be behind that?

  • I’m not good enough to get that job
  • People never choose me
  • I don’t know enough about the work

2. What You Say

Another way is identity limiting beliefs is to listen to what you say to other people. Let’s say a friend suggests going out to a concert, but you respond by saying you can’t afford it. What could be behind that statement?

  • There’s limited abundance available in the world
  • I don’t have enough money for that

You might feel you don’t have enough money, but you could rearrange your expenses, plan for it, or forgo something so you can afford it. There are ways around it when you don’t use the limiting language.

3. How Your Feel

A third way to identify limiting beliefs is to pay attention to your emotions. Let’s say you have a fear of speaking in public and you get a pit in your stomach when this comes up. What thoughts could be behind this feeling?

  • I don’t have anything important to say
  • People don’t want to listen to me
  • People don’t value my perspective

Relationships and love are another big area for limitations. Thoughts like “All the good men are taken” are common, but what is creating that belief? You might think:

  • I’m not worthy of a good man
  • Men don’t pick me
  • I’m invisible to men

You Are Not Limited!

podcast about limiting beliefs by Ronnie Ann RyanThe truth is you are not limited at all and you can work around these negative thoughts. Here’s a great example. I was 35 and really wanted to get married, so I went to see an astrologer who said she didn’t see that in the stars for me.

Thinking maybe that wasn’t the right astrologer for me, I went to another who ended up saying the exact same thing. This made me furious! Who are they to tell me such a thing?

Fast forward five years when I decided I was going to figure this out. I dated 30 men in 15 months to find the adorable man I’ve been happily married to for years. This is a perfect example of making a big shift. I SAW the possibility and transformed the situation to attract the love I wanted.

How to Transform Limiting Beliefs

First and foremost, limiting beliefs are not TRUE. Katie helps her clients transform these limiting beliefs to become empowering beliefs! The first step is to write down the limiting core belief, then turn it into a positive.

If you transform these beliefs, it truly is life changing. So, I’m not worthy of love becomes, I am worthy of love. Have the awareness that you actually have a CHOICE. And then choose differently.

The next step is to connect with your higher self, God, Source, or the Creator, to get out of your head. Imagine that you cancel and delete the limiting belief and then replace it with the empowering one. This is reprogramming your unconscious mind and you reinforce this by saying it, writing it and practicing it.

I asked Katie how you deal with your nay sayer or inner critic. She says that’s exactly why you connect with a higher source. That level of power is pure love and supportive which enables you to change and transform your beliefs.

Chances are it could take more than once through the process, but you can shift this limitation! The very first one to address may be that you CAN change your limiting beliefs.

You’ll learn a lot more, so be sure to listen to the full podcast this weekend.
