When we realized that it can be more flexible, it becomes more flexible, so the key to this is being aware of the beliefs we have about reality itself and today what I'm going to share with you how to do is how to change that, have your beliefs about reality itself. Because the thing is if we believe that for example, money is hard to come into our lives, then it will be hard to come into our life.

If we believe that it's hard to lose weight, then it will become hard to lose weight. These are all things I've realized also more recently, I've been redefining a lot of my beliefs about the way reality works recently because I'm realizing that a lot of the beliefs that I have are simply there to keep the oldest self-image in place.

It is there to reaffirm me knowing how reality works when in actuality reality is so much vaster than I could even imagine. And what I'm realizing is everything. Literally, everything in life is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Meaning if we believe it to be true, then that becomes our reality. I realized this when I was the other day I was paying attention to how my diet has been recent.

I've been eating a lot more nutrient-rich foods. I've been in a lot of like raw foods, get a lot of like natural enzymes in and perfect digestion. Kind of wanted to go through a detox mainly just because I know that, uh, I've never really done a heavy detox before.  I kind of wondered if there was like those heavy metals in my body.

I was like, Huh, what do I want to do to re like to let go of the heavy metal metals in my body? And I was looking at different ways of going about it. Of course, raw food is like, you know, one of the best ways and I've been looking at my lifestyle. Last year I had been doing what is called counting my macros. Counting macronutrients are nutrients, which is like counting calories.

And what I realized I've been doing is I've been counting calories and the idea is that if I, you know, my certain body weight for like how much weight I want to gain or lose if I burn, for example, if I burned 2,800 calories a day, then the idea is that if I were only to eat 2,600 calories a day, then I'd be losing weight.

If I were to eat 3000 calories a day and only burn 2,800 calories a day, which I burned a lot of calories because I do a lot. Um, I do a lot of a workout at the gym. I run sometimes. These are things that influence my energy. And the thing is, is when I was last year, I've been going about things.

I've been very measuring everything, but what I'm realizing now is that that system does work if you buy into the system itself. If I look into it and yes, at a certain level we can look at science. We can be like, well, science shows that it works. It must be true. And from a certain perspective, yes, if we play that game, however, I'm starting to look at it a little bit differently now.

The reason that is, is because I've read a book called the autobiography of a Yogi, and in this book, one of the Gurus that a Yogananda comes across is talking about that, of understanding that our mind is the melder or welder.

I can't remember how to say it, of the muscles, so it's about understanding that our mind keeps things in place more than we think it does. As much as I want to count macronutrients and count calories and all that stuff, what I'm realizing is that it's also the mind that is holding these things in the place. Like what if I had a belief that I didn't have to eat a certain amount of like for example, protein.

There's like these social condition thoughts that you need a whole bunch of protein in your body in order to stay, to survive or even to like to look a certain way or to be a certain way. And I'm thinking to myself, well, there's a certain belief system that I bought into it for a long time. And yes, from a certain point you'd be like, well, science proves this, that and that.

But the power of belief, I believe, I believe is more powerful than other things because we know the placebo effect is right. Even more of the times, like pharmaceutical drugs, we'll compare how effective something is to the placebo effect because the placebo effect is that effective.

Think about that. Literally that is what happens is when they are doing and studying pharmaceutical drugs, it depends on how much it will rank against a placebo because the placebo effect is that effective, upheld as nothing in it other than maybe saline or something that's utterly neutral thing, but yet it still has a massive result just because of the belief that people have of what's inside of it. Everything in life is a form of placebo, everything.

And sometimes you say, well, I can back it up with science. Okay, well maybe that's the key, the key. But if you're looking to the belief system of science than maybe that's what you need to reaffirm that reality. From a certain level, of course, there's this understanding that there are certain things already put in place that are easier to believe.

Like for example, you'd be like, well, I'm just going to believe I can fly and I'm gonna go fly. Well, there is also, we did plug ourselves into this reality and part of this reality agreement that we made is that we were going to abide by the laws of the collective consciousness as well, which means that flying isn't as probable because we have gravity or whatever it may be.

But it's about being aware of these different nuances and understanding that within the nuance which within the very general things, you know, not the necessarily the extremes and maybe there are certain beans that are able to get beyond that like enlightened people.

And that book, the autobiography of a Yogi, there was a. There was like a Yogi that could teleport. You know, I think that that could be possible from a certain perspective and it's just that most people don't experience that because we are conditioned by society because it is a. we're not necessarily enlightened at that level. That maybe there's this Indian Guru.

Was that a Yogananda in the book, the autobiography of a Yogi and a Yogi came across. However, what I'm saying is I don't know if it's possible or not, but I like to believe that it could possibly be the case, that that is something that is possible because the reality we live in is a form of a dream. That is something I do believe. When you start to meditate, you start to go within and you start to really redefine your belief systems.

You realize that a lot of the things you believe to be true are they're just going to be reflected back to you and if you change what you believe to be true, you change your reality. That's what I've been realizing lately as I'm like, okay. I normally believe so. What I did recently is I went to a more of a raw food type diet, so I've been eating a lot of big salads with a lot of different vegetables in it. A big smoothie with fruit in it, and I used to not eat that much fruit because I was like, well, fruit has sugar and I don't want that much sugar because the sugar will turn into fat and not want to be lean.

And all of these beliefs, but now what I'm realizing is it's more important how I feel when I eat those foods. I feel really good. And what I'm realizing is I had this belief before that you needed a whole bunch of protein, so I see a lot of Tofu and stuff in order to gain muscle up.

Tofu is processed. When I'm realizing now is I'm starting to change my beliefs about the diet itself. We'll see how it goes because it hasn't been like, you know, years or anything since I've been doing this. However, I'm maintaining my muscle and everything by doing this because I'm simply believing that that's going to be the case for me.

That is me a filling prophecy. I'll see how it does long term, if I can read it, if it doesn't work long term, it doesn't mean that it doesn't work, it just means that I haven't, I don't believe it yet for that to be the case for me. There's also a guy that, uh, victor, my friend Victor, on YouTube as collaborative before, his name is Ray Moore is a YouTube channel. And he does these chronic initiations were like, you do these dry fast for like four days or longer, I think maybe even a week.

No water, no food, which goes beyond the belief system of most people because what do people tell us? You need food and water or you will die. That is how it works. You know? That's the belief system we kind of subscribed to. But what he does is he takes people, it takes like 40 people at a time on these retreats and they go a week without eating or drinking water. How is that possible? You see what I mean? It's kind of.

And this dude, if he wasn't, he's in good shape. He's not like the skinny. He's not like a skinny. Like sometimes you see those really skinny people are like, Oh man, you just need a sun gays and do this and do that. And they're really skinny. And you're like, ah, I don't know if I want to be that skinny, you know?

That's how I was towards. If you see some people will talk about it, but this guy actually has good body weight, body mass, and the dude hardly ever eats, so I'm not saying I'm going to completely give up food or anything. I'm just saying that what this is doing is this is redefining my idea of beliefs of protein, of how the body maintains itself and it's making me see the world differently because I'm seeing that literally, things in life will be true if we believe that to be true.

Depending on how we depend on how we define ourselves, depending on which belief systems we prescribed to, that's going to be the different levels of how we experience reality. I'm looking at these macronutrient things where it's like I normally count my calories and I'm not going to count my calories in a more.

I'm going to do more of what is called intuitive eating, which is where I listen to my body rather than my mind because my mind is very logical. It wants to understand, well, if you put in this much calories and you do this and that, well, yes, from a logical perspective that is true and from that level of belief that is true. However, the one truth in life is that all truths are true.

Whatever you believe to be true is what you're going to find more reflection up, so I'm thinking to myself now, well, why don't I break the rules a little bit? Why don't I not eat as much protein as I normally eat, but have this belief that my muscles were retained, the level of a muscle and it's that I can eat less and eat more raw foods and that I can still feel great and not feel like I'm fatigued or something like that.

Why don't I develop that level of belief and that's what I have now and I've been doing this for a couple of weeks now and I feel great? I feel higher vibration than ever. This is what I'm sharing with you. My experience with this and that is that I am redefining my beliefs and I'm redefining what I believe to be true. From a certain level, you can look out into society and you could see people that get a certain type of result because they model successes.

Other have other people that can work, but understand that that's a belief system that's like, okay, someone else has done it. Therefore, I can do it, and sometimes that may be the path of least resistance. That then causes a momentum. If we tie onto those thought forms. If you were to be in traffic and get angry, so I'm cutting you off. There's been a lot of other people in that same position that have been angry about traffic. You may be also picking up on their forums because thoughts are literally things we think because thoughts are invisible. They don't exist.

Thoughts are still energetic patterns, so when we become aware of that, we can see what do I choose to believe because most of the beliefs we have are just on autopilot. There are things that we believe because for a long period of time that's been the case, but what we could start to realize is that we can let go of these beliefs. They don't have to be our reality if we don't choose them too, but the key is to first off, be aware of it because when we're aware of it, we start to take our power back.

When we're not aware of it, we made in the autopilot mind. The autopilot mind will do everything. The reason I say that is because I'm now becoming aware of a lot of the subconscious beliefs that I've had about the way reality works, how reality works this way, this is how things are, and I'm looking at it and I'm like, wait, can I think about this in a new way? Is there a new way that I can approach this when it comes to health, when it comes to relationships, when it comes to money, when it comes to all of these things, abundance, doing my passion, I'm starting to see things is more inclusive?

What about this and this instead of this or this because of this or this is the mind coming in that's trying to decide how things work in society. For me, this is about just becoming aware of the beliefs and understanding that everything in life is a self-fulfilling prophecy. They did this study before. There was a study where what they did is they got somebody that had multiple personality disorder and what they did is from one personality, somebody would have a certain medical condition.

Twenty minutes later after they shift to a different personality, that mental condition can be totally gone, which means the biological structure of that person's body literally at a cellular level has changed because they changed identities. They've changed personalities, so in one they may have a tumor and another one, they may not have the tumor and within 20 minutes that tumor disappears simply because they've shifted their personality and their identity.

Think about how interesting that is. They've also shown that certain people's eye color will change when they go from personality to personality, so it just shows us the power of belief in the power of identity and when we change our belief and ourselves and how we view ourselves, that's when things begin to change in a powerful way.

I'm not saying, hey, you got to develop a personality disorder or something like that, that that's how you have to be from this point going forward. But what I am saying is that you can start to become more aware of how you are and how you define yourself, because you do not have to define yourself in the basis of the limitations that you make for yourself. You can understand that you are so much more than you can even imagine, but the way you tap into that is by redefining yourself.

It doesn't mean you have to pile on a new belief or a new idea just means you have to be aware of the old one that you're playing according to. This works for everything, by the way. From a certain perspective, you could say, well, astrology is true. The patterns are true, numerology is true, and yes, I think it is in can be true. However, are you playing to that game?

Are you playing according to the game? Because the game will reinforce it to be even true for you. And maybe you say, yes, I like this game. I like this permission slip, but recognize it as simply a permission slip. That's it. Just recognize it as a permission slip and as you recognize it as a permission slip, you can then see that these things are more choices. Most of the beliefs that we have about our past have simply been handed down to us and we've agreed to them at a certain level.

We might not be aware that we agreed to it, but we did and even if it were five years old and we agreed to it, we absorbed it into ourselves and us to suit. We made a choice that this is the way reality is. Even at an unconscious level, it is still a choice that we made.

The key is to be aware of all of these beliefs that we've made and then deciding that we can let go of the beliefs that no longer serve because many of us will have beliefs that have been holding us back for years and years about the way reality is. These beliefs about how people treat me and how I am in public and how the relationship with my parents is. All of these things are just beliefs and more important.

I was talking about this earlier, more important than just the beliefs that we have about little things like money, relationships, like the little smaller subjects. What are your beliefs about life? What are your beliefs about how reality works? Law of attraction can be powerful and maybe it is a law for the way the universe works. However, I'm saying the more you believe in the law of attraction, the more it tends to work for you or the more aware you are of the correlation between what you're thinking and what you're feeling.

Some very successful people don't even consciously use the law of attraction. They may use it unconsciously, but they do not consciously use it and they still find what works for them. With this whole process, there is no right way. There is no wrong way. There simply is the way and the way is what works for you. But just recognize that when you have these beliefs when you have these ways for going about how reality works, see them as a choice.

And the thing is with choice, if you continue to live out a certain choice that serving you or not serving you, then you realize that because it is a choice, you can choose something different. If reality is fixed in reality, just is the way it is, then it becomes unmalleable unchangeable, solid and real, real serious, and the more serious things are, the more that we find it has power over us. One big thing you could do to loosen up how your reality is going is just to enlighten up, loosen up a little bit.

Reality doesn't have to be so serious. Things don't have to be so rough and hard. Laugh at it. Let it be something that is there. You have a negative belief that you find that came from childhood, kind of Snicker at it. Be aware that you became aware of it. The more that you make it serious, the more you hold that reality in place in, the more that reality remains in its power.

Understand that you are so much more than you can imagine. My sound is so true because of we ourselves with the box of our own belief system. We have certain beliefs. We say, this is who I am, this is what I'm capable of. Not knowing that if we simply took ourselves out of the belief system, we take ourselves out of the limitation because the beliefs we have are like a little box. It's like a box that we keep ourselves in.

That box we keep ourselves in is the limitations of however we see ourselves, but the moment we take ourselves out of that box is like, whoa. The view from up here, it looks way better. I want to be over here, and that's what we realized is that we can move outside of that box. We can move outside of that self-image.

Everything I'm showing you right now is just what I'm currently going through is I'm redefining my own beliefs and I'm becoming more free, free to be myself. Since I've been back from Costa Rica. You may notice that my energy is totally different. I feel much more authentic, much more than I can be myself, fewer walls up and a lot of that is because I'm just redefining my beliefs, my belief about working hard, my beliefs about all these different things.

I'm learning just simply to let them go. Not necessarily on a new believer. It's not like am I letting go of the belief that I have to work really hard. I'm like, I'm going to paddle out of belief. That is easy. How do you do that? Simply ask yourself the question, what would I have to believe is true to be having this kind of experience?

As you become aware of what that belief is, you start to gain more of your power then back. Your mind will start to look for a reference.

You start to gain more of your power if you become more aware of your beliefs.
