For Day 14, You're Encouraged To Tune Into Your Belief Systems.
What You'll Need
A Journal or Notebook
25 to 30 Minutes Of Free Time
A Quiet Place To Journal
For this journaling prompt, you'll be tuning into your belief systems. Your beliefs are the ideas that you hold inside about yourself and the world. Some of the beliefs that you have, you're going to want to keep. They ignite your spirit and fuel you. Some of the beliefs that you have, you're going to want to discard them and create new ones.
Start to write down what you believe about yourself. Who are you? What do you believe you are capable of? What do you believe about the following areas of your life (money, love, connection, being a female & what's expected of you, what you can and can't do, etc). Write them all down.
Be sure to number each item as you're writing down the list.
When you're done writing out your list, go down the list and put a star next to each belief that's a positive belief. Then go down the list and put an X next to each belief that's a negative belief. The negative beliefs will be the ones that dampen your spirit when you think about them.
You're going to be taking those negative beliefs and transforming them into something new. Check out the alchemy practice below.
Take Your Journaling A Step Further
If you want to add another dimension to your journaling session, you can draw a picture with you in the center of the page and write all of your beliefs around the picture. You can start each sentence with I AM, or LIFE IS, or LOVE IS. Once your done filling the page with your beliefs, highlight all of the statements that are positive with a yellow highlighter and cross out all of the statements that are negative with a black marker.
See how much space is taken up with negative beliefs and how much is taken up with positive beliefs. How do you feel about the picture in the end? Are there some things that you would like to change or do you have any "aha" moments. Be sure to journal about anything new that you discover.
Take a look at all of the items that you put an X next to on your "beliefs" list. You're going to be taking those beliefs and transforming them one by one.
Read the statement out loud and then take a separate sheet of paper and write what you would like to believe instead. Do this step for each and every one of the beliefs that you put an X next to.
Once your down writing down the list, pick one or two statements that evoke the most emotion.
Which ones do you feel are affecting you the most? Create a positive affirmation out of the statement of what "you would like to believe instead." For example if you have a belief that money doesn't grow on trees and you would like to believe that you should have access to what you need when you need it, create a positive affirmation out of that new idea.
Example, your new affirmation will be something like this: I'm gaining access to what I need when I need it.
Write that affirmation down daily (preferrably at the start of each day).
Fill the page of a composition notebook with that phrase each day until you start to feel yourself ease up in that area. You'll know when it's time to stop writing the affirmation because you'll feel easier about the subject altogether.
You can then go back to your original list and work on the other beliefs. Be sure to use the process anytime you need to change a belief.
