Core beliefs are hardened, rock-like thoughts and assumptions usually based on early
choices and decisions than are likely long forgotten. Core beliefs are lies about
yourself that you have swallowed e.g. "I am unlovable, I
am ugly, I am totally incompetent". They then shore up
thousands of addictions. You can go after core beliefs directly with consciousness
focusing using a phrase such as "I am beautiful, capable and lovable".
Using a click counter (sold in stationery stores for counting people going into a
theatre), you can say that phrase 1000 times a day as you walk
A similar exercise is to alternate that phrase with the sixth pathway.
- I am beautiful, capable and lovable
- I accept myself completely here and now and consciously experience everything I
feel, think, say and do (including my emotion backed addictions) as a necessary part
of my growth into higher consciousness.

You just keep going every day until it looses its punch. Eventually the phrase just
feels too obvious to bother repeating. It typically might take a week. If nothing happens
after two weeks, you probably have a phrase you too far from your current beliefs. It is
just not plausible. You are not even intellectually buying it. Try a
weaker phrase that is more believable, or try something more specific.
You are trying to bite off too big a chunk of your programming at once. The alternative
is just keep plugging.

The Laws Governing Core Beliefs
Core beliefs are hard for you to detect because
they seem like blatantly obvious Truth. Your brain automatically filters out and forgets
any counter evidence and carefully retains any supporting evidence for the belief. You
will always attempt to prove to the world that the core belief is not true, while
simultaneously trying to prove to yourself that it is true. There are three laws
governing core beliefs:
- The law of Attraction : You will tend to
attract people to you who will act according to your belief, e. g. you will tend to
seek out or attract people who will tell you that you are ugly.
- The law of Projection : You interpret
other’s behaviour to be what you believe, e. g. if anyone rejects you, it must
be because you are too ugly.
- The law of Manifestation : You set others
up to act as you believe. You put others in situations where they are likely to say
that you are ugly.
The good news is, once you change your core beliefs, your experience changes to match.
Changing core beliefs is quite difficult. It feels like lying to yourself. It helps to
get objective feedback from others to help you crack them. It may well be true you are
not in the same league with Denzel Washington, but you are not so ugly no one could love
The main technique for repropgramming core beliefs is consciousness focusing with a phrase that counters the
