Know How To Zap A Limiting Belief Into Oblivion?

I’ll be honest. It’s not quite as fast as I made it sound. But … it can still be done in an amazingly short period of time.

What Is A Limiting  Belief?

A limiting belief is a simple statement that puts restraints on your ability to expand and explore beyond what you know. Rarely are limiting beliefs convoluted or complex.

Limiting beliefs are usually one or two sentences that shut the door to the world of possibilities.

Nobody ever notices me. Nobody is interested in what I have to share. I can’t be wealthy. Wealth is bad. Being beautiful is dangerous. Love is painful. Life is difficult and full of pain. I am worthless. I am incompetent. I will never succeed.file0001694774604

Once you find these little gems that create such suffering and despair, there are a slew of ways to decrease their power and made them into nothing but silly ideas you used to have.

You can approach this problem from many angles. But here I’m going to talk about just one of them from the world of NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

NLP is exquisite at rearranging a limiting thought pattern by challenging the unseen foundation it’s resting on.

The Foundation Supporting A Limiting Belief

What keeps a limiting belief in place? Even when you know better, what makes it so hard to loosen up a limiting belief so you can see it for what it is?

In the world of NLP, the answer is the way the words are put together, or the way the belief is structured in language. Continue reading

Want To Be A Healer? But … Is It Really Possible To Heal Another?

The best answer I’ve ever found to this question is the word ‘Po’, coined by Edward DeBono, a modern non-Aristotelian logician.

‘Po’ means neither yes nor no. It means you are neither for nor against either possibility. It means moving beyond the no of logic (that leads you to the right answer), and the yes of belief systems (that make you feel you have the right answer).


‘Po’ positions you in the space surrounding either yes or no as the right answer.

‘Po’ deposits you at the home address of true creativity; that point of power where two opposites meet and merge into a new whole, a new insight, or a new guideline.



What Does This Have To Do With Healing?

Well, here’s the thing. The safest position to take on this question is ‘Po’. Let’s take a look at why I say this.

On the one hand, it sure looks like healers heal others when healing is defined as taking away painbutterfly-on-leaves-in-sun and suffering. If it’s physical pain, the release can be accomplished many ways: an aspirin, acupuncture, surgery, repairing broken links between organs, systems and the brain, and many more.

If it’s emotional pain, reducing that emotional challenge is definitely do-able with the newest Energy Psychology techniques such as Callahan Tapping, EFT, TFT, TAT and many others. You can rearrange the configuration of images, sound, and feeling that create the emotion via techniques from NLP or hypnosis in deep or waking trance. And of course, there’s the age old technique of  simply giving someone a hug or just reaching out and gently taking their hand.

If it’s mental pain, releasing fixed points of view that hamper perceptual flexibility can be accomplished by challenging presuppositions, introducing new models of meaning and purpose, or a simple re-education of how things actually work, like relationships or the fact that consequences are the other side of the coin of accountability.

So clearly healers can release pain in a variety of ways. Yet, here’s where a much more important question emerges; a question far more important for you as the healer than for the one being healed.

Who Is Doing The Healing?
