I have a question. Suppose I have the belief: Money does not make you happy.
How can I put this belief in the past tense?
Thanks and best regards,
Rita Capitein/The Netherlands

Hi Rita,

Thanks for posting.

To get a proper handle on this, I think it would be worthwhile knowing exactly what you are trying to create.

Have you experienced "Money does not make you happy" and want to believe "Money DOES make you happy." Or do you feel that a belief like "Money does not make you happy" is getting in the way?

Nothing can "make" us happy or unhappy, per se. We give meaning to events and circumstances, or have a conditioned response to them. More to it than that, of course.

In a literal sense, you would change that belief to "Money did not make you happy" or "Money has not made you happy."

However, I would recommend really chunking down on that belief. Is the "you" "people" in general or is it yourself?

Firstly, do you want to believe "Money does not make you happy", or would you prefer to believe something like "I can be happy when I choose to be"?

Do you already believe "Money does not make you happy" and want to eliminate that?

For money-related beliefs, look at some patterns you have around money. Do you feel guilty when you have money or sad when you do not?

What might you have to believe to have a certain pattern of behaviour or emotion around money?

Common beliefs around money might include:

"Money is the root of all evil."
"Money is hard to come by."
"You have to work hard to earn money."
"I will never have enough money."

Hope to hear more from you, Rita, as I am keen to help you with this.

Thank you very much Paul. I have learned this general belief and made it personal.
I think this works the best for me at the moment:

'I believed that money did not make me happy.'

In this way the old belief is more personal. What do you think about it?
Thanks for your advice. Rita

Hi Rita,

Thanks for your message.

I think you could leave out "I believed that" and the meaning would remain intact. It just makes the belief easier to repeat during the process. Generally, the snappier, the better  ;D

There may be an emotional component here too. What would you have to believe to hold a belief like "Money does not make me happy" ?

There could be a series of beliefs propping this up. There usually is with a pattern. Then, just identify the pattern.

Do you think a belief like "Money causes unhappiness" ("Money caused unhappiness") resonates with you?

This is not mentioned in the instructions of Belief Blasters, as that was not the intent, but I find that it can be useful to ask:

"In what way would holding this belief restrict my progress? How would it impact me if I DIDN'T have this belief?"

You know your experience better than anyone, so I would recommend giving this due consideration. It may well bring up some interesting perspectives.

This might also  assist you in pinpointing some other beliefs and targeting those that are getting in the way.

Please let me know if that helps, or if you need any further clarification, Rita.

Thanks,

Paul  :D

Dear Paul,
Thanks very much, this approach does help.  I will experiment with the belief:  Money did not make me happy or Money does not make me happy. Still I am a little confused because this was the original belief but I will see what happens.

And you are right: new beliefs do come up: it is not safe to be rich, I am not allowed to have money, it is dangerous to have money.
I will use the belief blasters with these beliefs and let you know.
Thanks again.
Rita :)

perhaps you could seal it with "money couldn't make me happy"
If you think it, feel it or say it...PSTEC it!

Thank you, Rita.

Yes, by all means see what eliminating "Money did not make me happy" does too. Some experimentation can be involved here, and you might well find that creates a big shift for you.

Brian's suggestion is a good one too. See what resonates with you.

It is good you have found some other beliefs to "blast"  ;)

Hello,

Remember, "Money does not make you happy.' is a 'supporting belief' it is not a core belief. It is prediction or a forecast of what would happen if you have money. Try to identify the core belief or beliefs behind this prediction belief.

Thank you Adam.
Do you have any suggestions how I can trace the core belief?
When I ask myself: what do I have to believe when I think:  Money does not make me happy.  My answer would be: money is bad.

Is this the core belief  you mean?

Thanks Rita

Paul

Hi Rita,

Adam made a really good point there.

"Money is bad" would be an example of a core belief.

"Money is...", "People are...", "I am...", "Life is..." are examples of how core beliefs are held. Completing these sentences would typically reveal the core belief(s).

The distinction here, of course, would be to ensure the sentence has a "belief structure" to it.

"I am a bad person" cuts to the core. "I am feeling low" is emotionally descriptive. It does not cut to the core, as it were.

Obviously these are just examples. Around money, there is a lot of assumptions that are linked to the culture and mày go way back to early childhood.

"Money is hard to come by."
"Money is the root of all evil"
"The only way to be successful is to be rich."

Can you see that, if someone held these beliefs, it would generally affect their experience of life?

It can be really useful to look at your pattern around money (or anything, really). What patterns do you have around money? Do you tend to overspend or do you "hoard" it? What do you feel that people who talk about money a lot?

Think of the pattern and then think along the lines of "what would I have to believe to behave/think that way?"

Hope that helps.

The first question to ask yourself is why do you believe money is important? If you stop to think about it for a second, it's not. It's when you have beliefs that place too much importance on it that it becomes a "problem". Most all importance around money is due to lack which is driven by negative beliefs (thoughts, feelings and behaviors) and it is typically fear related.

If you think it, feel it or say it...PSTEC it!

Hi Rita,

Great discussion and good advice. I personally suggest simply "Money couldn't make me happy"

It is past tense. It is also two parts with connector exactly as per the instructions. Make each one as simple as it can be made. That is the approach one should use. Anything else is a complex belief.

Some beliefs do  present interesting questions though and I'm very pleased you asked.

Kind Regards

Tim

Thanks Paul, Adam and Tim. I am going to  use belief blasters on my belief: money could not make me happy. Immediately a lot of other beliefs pop up as I am writing this. So I will work with all my money beliefs and let you know what happens.

Best regards,
Rita
