Your Belief System Rules Your Life!
What you believe is what you receive. This is your Paradigm. So you need to learn how to take affirmative action and use positive affirmations to shift it for the life you want to have.
Using the Law of Attraction
Are you fed up with your life as it is now? Want to manifest love, health and money in your life? I show you how to use the Law of Attraction so that it works for you.
My 3 Law of Attraction Success Stories
Changing your Belief System
Do you feel you can achieve so much more but something always stops you getting it. What if I was to tell you that you are correct that there is something stopping you from achieving what you want right now! Every single thing you do and feel is a direct result of your own belief system.
This is not an instant magic formula. It will take time and some perseverance on your part. But if you want to change your life into something so much more rewarding then this is worth the effort. The method is written below so that you can start straight away!.
So if you are prepared to put a little work into changing how you think and act into a more positive way this article will show you how to change your paradigm and finally get a better life.
What is your Paradigm?
It is the collection of the ideas and patterns, negative and positive, that have been ingrained onto your subconscious mind after years of conditioning. It is your belief system that you act upon in everything you do in your life. I explain how the mind works and what could have happened that has stopped you from achieving all you want and deserve for a better life. This is not a quick solution by any means. It takes time to train your mind to replace those negative thoughts and beliefs that have been controlling your actions up to this point in your life.
Believe it - Achieve it - Receive it
It also takes a huge amount of belief on your part that you can attract positive outcomes in all you do from now on. Once you really believe you can achieve something then you will be guided on the correct path to receive it. You really can manifest everything you want in life but it does take time and concentration. The videos in this article are awesome!
I have made a Favorites list on my You Tube account and listen to them all the time. In fact as with most times during the day as I write articles on the internet I am listening to them now! If you have not achieved the things you want you can change your belief system, your Paradigm.
There are many books out there about how to change your life for the better. You can borrow lots from the library as I did. This particular book Change Your Mind Change Your Life was so good that I decided to buy it because I wanted to read it over and over again.
Positive Thinking and Affirmations
By repeating affirmations that apply to your chosen new life you can create a new reality for yourself. A reality that you have decided you want and deserve right now. You can harness the power of your subconscious mind. This in turn will create your ideas and dreams into reality. Make this conscious effort of changing that lifelong paradigm conditioning and you can start your journey of attracting and creating all that you want out of your life now.
Create energy to harness the power of the subconscious mind. Train your subconscious mind to operate on a different frequency, a different wavelength, a different vibration. You are what you believe. You are what you think. By saying positive affirmations over and over again they will create your new reality. You can change your life exactly how you want it.
Did the Book "The Secret" Work for You?
It is very easy to get everything you desire in your life, just like the book suggested. But what was not made clear in this book was the one simple fact of repetition. You need to repeat over and over again to yourself your affirmations, as many times a day as is possible.
These affirmations will become implanted onto your subconscious mind. Your conscious mind will then start to create the actions needed to change your paradigm and therefore change your life to what you want it to be. I believe this is the real secret that the book did not emphasize enough.
When you first started to drive a car did you get behind the steering wheel and become an expert driver immediately. No, you had to learn how to do it first and gain confidence and a belief that you could drive. It is the same with anything you desire. The first step is to gain that belief that you can achieve it. Once you have done this by conditioning your subconscious mind then you are ready to act on your belief.
Dreams and Wishes
What are your goals in life. Your life is your choice. If you want to change it then choose to do it now. If you don't know where you are going, how do you expect to get there! How is this going to work for you? The first thing you must think about is what you want out of life.
Goals in Life
What are your dreams and wishes? But none of this will happen if you do not believe you deserve all that you want. Change your paradigm of self hate and ‘not deserving’ mentality. Tell yourself, ' I love myself, I deserve the very best that life has to offer.'
What We Believe
Children absorb energy quicker than adults. Think back to when you were very young. What did your parents or friends tell you about yourself. Did you hear over and over how clumsy, fat, ugly, useless or stupid you were?
Or was it that you were told how clever you were; that you could be anything you wanted. Children absorb energy quicker than adults do because they accept everything they are told as true. Your Paradigm was Altered by your parents, friends and the society around you. The child in all of us has kept whatever thought patterns were instilled in us at that young age.
Think back to that time for you, what you remember being told as a child, I bet you still have those thought patterns today. If they are negative we need to get them out and replace them with new positive ones. Change your paradigms by re-programming your subconscious mind now. Think thoughts of abundance and you attract abundance towards you. Think thoughts of poverty or lack and you attract that into your life instead.
You do deserve the very best, we all do. So what's stopping us getting it? We are. Or rather our thought system is. A lot of us do not believe that we deserve wonderful things to happen to us. We can think of all the things we've done wrong and all the things we should have done right that makes us unworthy of being happy now.
We all want these nice things to happen but we are unconsciously stopping them because we feel we do not deserve it. This is where we need to take action to change our paradigms. Say the affirmations to yourself silently in your mind. Over and over again, whatever you are doing. Keep your mind on positive thoughts and you will become positive in every situation. Say this positive affirmation now. ‘I love myself, I deserve the very best that life has to offer.'
You need to change your thoughts in order to change your reality. Your actions change into positive actions and the pattern of self hate and unworthy thoughts are replaced by new positive energy. I am not saying to forget all the things you know you did which you're ashamed of, all the mistakes you've made. Put them aside for the time being, they are done with, in the past.
You have a choice right now to let these past mistakes continue to influence your present and your future life. Or decide now to accept happiness and fulfillment. If you still hear your negative thoughts intruding then tell yourself in the mirror, ' I let go of the past.'
Forgive yourself for those things you did that caused pain, sorrow or hurt to others. It's not what happens to us that shape our lives, it our attitude towards it. Today is your new beginning. Today you change your paradigm and therefore your life. This is the day you choose to take control of your life. The possibilities are limitless and wonderful.
Choose to do it differently. If you worry about a situation all the time then you draw that worrying energy into your life. It attracts more negative thoughts and feelings until it takes over, it gets a life of its own.
You can choose to turn it around on its self and make it become positive energy. Say you are worried sick about your child when he goes out to school or with his friends. You think of all the terrible things that can happen to him, all the temptations he will face. Every time he is late back you go through all these negative outcomes. It makes you scared, you feel awful until you hear him come in and he is safe again.
Creating Negative Energy
All that negative energy was not only creating a build up in your own system it was also being projected onto him. You were unwittingly drawing the negative energy towards him. Choose to do it different. Every time he goes out say to yourself, 'My child is safe and protected at all times.' That way you are creating positive thoughts and energy around yourself and your child. The situation is still the same; it is your attitude that is different.
Say these positive affirmations to yourself over and over again.
- I AM tuned in and receiving my financial wealth, success, and abundance.
- I enjoy love, joy, health and family togetherness in my life now.
- Money comes to me easily every day.
- I earn ………… a year at a job I love and enjoy.
- I am financially secure for life now.
- I release the past. I love myself. I allow myself to be at peace and trust life.
- I receive large sums of money every day to spend as I wish when I wish.
- I enjoy excellent health. My life is full of love, joy and laughter.
- I am open and receiving my financial wealth, success, abundance and health.
- I love myself and deserve the very best in life right now.
- I am so happy and grateful now that money comes to me in ever increasing quantities from lots of various sources on a continuous basis.
- I am tuned in and ready to accept abundance from the Universe today.
- This is my reality everything in my life is easy.
- I accept and allow financial wealth into my life now.
- I am so happy and grateful now that money comes to me EVERY DAY.
- I am tuned in and ready to accept abundance from the Universe today.
- I am tuned into to the frequency of receiving money today.
- I deserve the very best that life has to offer.
- Something wonderful happens to me today.
- I have the power and strength to change my life for the highest good of all concerned.
- I accept abundance in every area of my life right now.
- I love and admire myself. I take control of my life.
Your subconscious mind only accepts what you tell it. If you write I want a five bedroom house in such an area then that is what you will get. The wanting! You will always want. The correct affirmation is ‘I buy this five bedroom house for cash today.’ ‘It has ………. (put in here as much detail as possible)’
Tomorrow never comes is a cliché but like all cliches is true. If you write ‘I buy that five bedroom house for cash tomorrow’, then you are conditioning your subconscious mind that it will be bought tomorrow. Tomorrow never comes, so neither will that house purchase nor anything else you wrote in your affirmations with that word ‘tomorrow’ in it. If it is money you want, then write. ‘I receive $..... ….. today.’ Or ‘I earn $........ today’ or ‘I win $........ today’ Or whatever currency you have in your own country. So go ahead now and work out exactly what you want in your life now.
Updating Your Affirmations
Windows movie maker has a great facility on the program where once you save the content of your new movie you can change it anytime by clicking on ‘save as.’ This is very useful because when these affirmations start to change your life you want to change and update them. You can do this with windows movie maker software without having to start from scratch.
Shifting Your Paradigm
It is your belief system that you act upon in everything you do in your life. Your paradigm is your personal belief system that you were conditioned with as a young child. You have reinforced these beliefs by continuing with the habits and same actions and reactions to situations that occur in your life. Albert Einstein stated that insanity is ‘doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.’
Attract Positive Energy
In order to change your life so that you can achieve your dreams you must change your paradigms. Do this by conditioning your belief system with positive thinking and repeating your own specific affirmations. This will then enable you to change whatever negative actions you have been repeating in your life that creates failure and unhappiness.
You will find you are now attracting positive energy that enables you to instigate the correct actions that are needed to achieve those positive results in your life. The constant re enforcement of positive ideas is essential. Follow the instructions above on How to Change your Paradigm and you will be on your way to a Wonderful and Better Life.

Happiness is derived from all kinds of sources and beliefs. When I was a volunteer counselor for many years, often people who were in dire circumstances still had a positive outlook on life and a strong belief system in place. They exuded positive energy.
L M Reid (author) from Ireland on February 03, 2019:
Hello Audrey, Yes I agree with you. If we don't forgive ourselves for bad things we've done or even for good things we have not done then our Paradigm energy is all out of kilter. We are in the mind set that we don't deserve good things happening in our life. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
Audrey Hunt from Pahrump NV on January 29, 2019:
Forgiveness, both for others as well as ourselves, is the most powerful force for shifting our paradigm. Even the law of attraction is inhibited by our lack to forgive.
Thanks for this good hub!
L M Reid (author) from Ireland on January 28, 2019:
Hello evie, yes I agree with you about that book.
Evie Sparkes on November 22, 2018:
I loved The Secret and did some little experiments at the time way back when it came out and then got on with life and forgot all about it. I now see it as a good starting point but it's too full of quotes and anecdotes for me these days. It has it's place or beginners but I wouldn't re-read it myself.
It doesn't quite convey that it's all in the feeling of the thing rather than a few little words.
I always re-affirm by beliefs with little positive affirmations if I'm having a bad day. Thanks for the article.
Dave Page from Hampshire on March 05, 2017:
Brilliant Hub, I had to read it twice, just to absorb the detail!
Bob Proctor explains it that way in a "6 minutes to Success" video I saw on YouTube today.

Marcy Goodfleisch from Planet Earth on January 03, 2015:
Viking - I absolutely believe that positive thoughts and conscious affirmations can improve our overall state of mind and emotional well-being. I'm glad to see this topic at the start of the year - this is a time when many people need to shed old fears and issues and move forward in a positive way. Nice job!
Audrey Hunt from Pahrump NV on January 03, 2015:

L M Reid (author) from Ireland on September 10, 2012:
Yes once you believe that good things will come your way then they do. Repeating the positive affirmations over and over again helps to train your subconscious mind.
Once we start excepting miracles and good things in our lives then they do appear. Thank you Lipnancy for taking the time to leave a comment

Germaine Mitchell on March 19, 2011:
Wow! What a beautifully uplifting and motivating presentation! And it's so appropriate on this first day if Spring! Thank you for providing much needed tools to change my paradigm! Thank you again!
Grace Marguerite Williams from the Greatest City In The World-New York City, New York on February 02, 2011:
Great hub! I agree with you a centillion percent! We make our own reality! Case in point, my mother graduated from college as a valedictorian yet she consigned herself to lower level nursing jobs although she was capable of much more. She did not believe that she deserved happiness. She often said that she would be glad when she died as so many people depended upon her. She was martyr who let people defecate on her and could not say no. As a result, people,including her family of origin, delighted in taking advantage of her. She elected to be powerless and so-called altruistic. Me, on the other hand, graduated from college with a B average and clawed to obtain a high powered position. I believe that I deserved the better things of life, not crumbs and I was going to get that job. I believed in putting myself first, second, third, and fourth. I set definite boundaries and will not let others take advantage of me. I believed in myself and I won.
L M Reid (author) from Ireland on May 21, 2010:
Thanks for your comments Garlic Angel. Yes I believe if you use positive affirmations every day it can change your life for the better. Because you are filling your day with
positivity and not all the negative energy that surrounds us in this world

2patricias from Sussex by the Sea on May 01, 2010:
This is a very good hub. We do think that a positive attitude helps one to achieve, and enjoy life.
L M Reid (author) from Ireland on April 26, 2010:
Your welcome Jaypyraimd and thks for the comment. Yes it is better if the video is made by yourself with your own specific affirmations in them. The Windows Movie Maker is very easy to use. Good luck
Jaypyraimd on April 26, 2010:

L M Reid (author) from Ireland on April 25, 2010:
Thank you for your comment. Yes I agree with you, there are a lot of people in this world who are struggling with their lives right now. I hope the affirmations strengthen their positive energy and allows them to succeed and be happy.
BJBenson from USA on April 25, 2010:
Very good Hub. I hope this hub can help some of those out there I read about how lost they feel, and alone.I believe that how someone feels about oneself helps how they think or don't about God. How they deal with everyone around them.
Very good Hub if I say so again.
