    That I “can’t” be ripped, I “can’t” fast for 67 hours. I have before. I guess there isn’t much to do.

    Any. To let go most probably helps. Not to get caught in the one or other aspect or side of a coin means being and staying open despite former experiences, which simply belong to the past.

    All beliefs are at some level limiting, they are to an extent exclusionary. I focus on values which also have a belief underlying them I guess . I don’t embrace the “moving beyond” approaches. My experience is that pushing against things is a source of frustration and I get in the way.

    Well, during corona I started to realise that we should always make an effort to live life abit more”in thepresent” then worrying about the future. Glad I am in that direction.

    I am happy to say that I have overcome most of my limiting beliefs, but I do still find myself with the one that creeps up on me every now and then. I face it when it shows up, and I think about why it came back and what I can do about it. More and more, I have started to believe that I am, indeed, good enough. For my job. For this wonderful life I’ve been given to live. For the love I have been gifted.

    I’m incredibly grateful for the rest of your responses, but especially those I most needed today… the reminder that beliefs are limited when they come from our ego. Thank you.

    The belief that I have to live in the US. I have recently opened my mind to living in other countries & exploring other cultures, and it feels so good.

    Beliefs, in my experience create an environment where you start looking for evidence to support them, rather than seeing things as they really are. I try to seek the Truth – not make conclusions and believe.

    All beliefs are limited if they come from a dualistic mind. So I’m working on letting go of everything.

    I have no limits, so therefore I have no limiting beliefs I have been there, done that in my “Other Life”- you know, that life that used to be until I found my mojo, my voice, my centered being and soul. .

    I’d like to move beyond the gloom and doom belief; and believe that i can rather than i can’t. This would require a lot of discipline on my part. Maybe a lot of reflection.

    The belief that I can’t.
    The belief that it’s always about me.

    Moving beyond this requires learning how to have greater self- confidence…of practicing self love.

    All those childhood thoughts in my head limiting me —- keeping me in a state of ‘lack’ not love. Seemingly silly thoughts when I really focus on my true self. Oh but those swirling thoughts can overwhelm me like —- I’m not smart enough, not pretty enough, not loved. Deep down I know my divinely created being is none of those things and I recognize my gifts. It still takes a lot of personal fortitude to quiet my mind and accept as my Dad always said to me that I am a Child of God.

      O, Debra, may you move beyond those tiring and tiresome thoughts! I can identify with them, and I’m quite old now, so I’ve had such a long time to get beyond them

    Whenever I feel like a victim I know that limiting beliefs are the culprit. So like a sounding alarm I am called to question and change or the cement hardens. I can’t afford to ignore the challenge to move or to act. I then feel my power when I respond its not out of helplessness or anger yet it has force. I love when that happens! When thoughts reemerge from the muddy water I can reevaluate if I don’t get taken under by the weight of the mud. Psalm 40 helps me when I feel like I’m sinking.

      I love to reach out to the Psalms, too…

    Thinking back to the sorts of things I believed as a child, I see belief itself as an impediment to an open mind. Allow, instead, that the mind move like water; with force when necessary, persistent in clearing all it touches but also to become still and clear.

      Dear Javier Visionquest, I like this: “I see belief itself as an impediment to an open mind.”
      This isn’t the belief quote I was looking for, but it came up in my search:
      “Life becomes much more enjoyable when you stop believing your mind.” ~ Adyashanti
      It’s making me giggle now 🙂

    I’m glad to have this question out there and even more glad to have the follow-up question. I needed both.

    Thoughts that suggest inadequacies hinder me & I’m a full-grown adult! It’s fascinating that the pain we incurred many moons ago still lingers & manifests itself in disparaging comments. I know how to quell the voices much better now but they are still there…..focusing on peace & my inner strength coupled with the Holy Spirit is the best combination.

    I watched the 7 minute video featuring Br. David currently featured on this site and it provided me with a life-giving answer to any life-limiting belief that plagues my mind. Life provides the answers, the help I need. if I will let it do so. If you haven’t yet watched it, please take the time to do it today. It is so helpful!

      Thank you, Carol. I will if I get time today (still painting the bathroom but taking a break to go get more supplies).

      I was thinking about you yesterday and hoping that you were feeling well and not experiencing side effects. I’m glad to see you here today. 🙂

      Yes, Carol, Brother David is such a dear!

    There is a constellation of perennial “suffering” narratives that seem to hinder me, like nettles. I have been working through them with writing mostly. In the writing I both process the perceived trauma and plant new storylines. These later allow for subtle shifts in tone and more realistic grasp on actual events. This seems to be helping, and at the very least provide material for my work..

    Like Kevin I have lost faith in my government. However, I don’t think it’s the opinions that bother me, as much as their inability to get anything done. The one that hurts me the most right now is the travesty of the Border. The Mexican government is completely corrupt and what is not corupted by the cartels is controled by the cartels.. the outrage that the media expressed over the conditions people who did cross we’re living in is now but a slight murmur of the media,, even though it’s ten times as bad. The Obama administration had eight years to address this problem they didn’t. Trump had four years to address the problem and he just shut it down instead of dealing with the reality that this country is built by immigrants and needs a program to support immigration, particularly of those being persecuted. The only thing that keeps me optimistic is with God Anything is Possible. So I continue to pray for all of those who are refugees in this country and everywhere around the world, in the hope that Humanity will recognize its obligation to care for those in need., and God will have mercy on them. My prayer is that we all express our concern as citizens to move this front and center as a concern of the American people and address it once and for all.

    The pandemic has created many “limiting beliefs” in my life, all of which are negative and draining. It’s difficult to move beyond them but I know that I can if I only change my attitude, make positive choices and live more gratefully.

    I’m stuck on today’s question… two words, limiting and help kinda coincide with each other – people help each other out. When in doubt ask. Looking forward to reading others responses. Happy Nat’l Nurses Day to all the nurses out there!

    I wish that certain factions of my country’s elected officials could move beyond the baseless, petty squabbling that has, unfortunately, become the norm, but I don’t believe that they will anytime soon. And these “beliefs” don’t limit me as such, personally, they limit my country from moving forward as a whole.

    Such an interesting question, and something I have previously worked on. I struggled with my self belief and having confidence in my choices – to overcome these limiting internal beliefs I got some coaching which really helped me. It is surprising how an impartial perspective can truly highlight my own strengths. I still have the occasional struggle but by sharing my struggles I find that reignites my positive beliefs when negativity creeps in.
