Belief Blasters / Re: 23 beliefs to eliminate for natural confidence

He believes that negative core beliefs cannot be totally eliminated, but rather can be balanced:

I've ready his books. They are a great source of info and have helped me spot several blind spots though he should eliminate that belief. It's untrue. :)

Although this topic has not received posts for a long time, I want to contribute an update to the page of negative beliefs Bloodfish provided. It was moved from its previous location, and when I found out it was created by John Nutting, I knew it was worth tracking down:

http://www.core-beliefs-balance.com/example_negative_core_beliefs.htm

He believes that negative core beliefs cannot be totally eliminated, but rather can be balanced: http://www.core-beliefs-balance.com/understanding_belief_patterns.htm. This approach appears to be different from that used by PSTEC.

Whether one agrees with his mode of therapy or not, however, Nutting's understanding of how negative core beliefs are formed is kind and wise. I learned from him how to discover mine, and to stop scolding myself as they reveal themselves one by one.

Even though old core beliefs may be completely and totally useless and devastating ad destructive to us now, once upon a time they were logical responses to an illogical world. Back then, taking them on helped ensure that we survived childhood. Removing them now means shedding our old rusty armor and revealing new strength (and fun!) we didn't know we are capable of.

In addition to what I had already posted. Blast these in past tense:

I am guilty
I have done something wrong
I am wrong
I am to blame
I am bad
I am a bad person

Use long 18 min BB and REALLY feel the feelings with each one while you think of all the possible memories, past, present and future. You may need to run one more than once if these are really strong beliefs.

Hi Truman,

Thanks for posting.

It is all a model, really. Pain and pleasure, to an extent, are entirely subjective. What one person finds painful, another finds pleasurable...and vice versa.

Of course, there are certain experiences which seem to be universally painful. If you were neutral about everything, which could be achievable, is that the best outcome for you? Judging by your question, I don't think so.

It seems you want to sit with the pain, allow it to be there and to resolve.

As I understand it, however, more spiritual freedom can be attained from giving up the attachment to certain outcomes.

Beliefs are often below conscious awareness, but we can bring them to conscious awareness.

A belief that tends to get in the way is "everything needs to go my way", allied with "I have to be perfect" and "pain is bad."

Eliminating these from your model of reality can create freedom and allow pain to be experienced...and cleared.

Some good suggestions for PQT:

"I now safely navigate pain to be who I was meant to be"
"I am safe to be me now"
"I can absolutely handle and resolve my pain now"
"Pain has a message for me, so I listen to it"
"I am definitely made of strong stuff"
"I use all pain to create a pleasurable life"

Hope that helps, Truman.

All the best,

Paul

I also feel my subconscious is sabotaging my efforts to change the memory/emotion because it perceives it to be dangerous to do so. Therefore this is why i am not getting results. Does click track deal with this resistance and if not then how would i us pstec do make my subconscious perceive changing these negative memories to be safe and beneficial for me?

Yes it does, just CT those feeling to a 1 or 0.

Also CT any feelings of frustration and also impatience around pstec not working/not working fast enough to a 0.

So, I finished with BB on sentence "everything is my fault". Wow! I am so full of energy for few days. Great experience! :) But, now I feel I have some more of guilt. I'll continue with BB.

Hi Alakh,

Thanks for your post.

I am sorry you have not had any results yet.

We have corresponded before, so I know you have tried many different modalities.

Sometimes a desperate desire to change, while coming from a good place, CAN impede progress. It can get in the way because, when someone is desperate for something to work (whether it is a modality or a social interaction), it tends to take them out of the present moment.

So, the first thing I would recommend is to CT the annoyance that "nothing works" and that you have had zero results from your efforts and expenses. Allow yourself the opportunity to get really annoyed at this. You may need to run the CT several times.

Also, you could try saying "It is safe to be happy" and see if any thoughts that run counter to that show up.

These can be run through the Belief Blasters.

Also, you may wish to see if these beliefs resonate with you:

- "Nothing could have ever worked for me"
- "Change was impossible"
- "My mind was against me"
- "I was defeated"
- "I could never have been who I wanted to be"
- "Everything was a waste of time"
- "Everything was a waste of money"
- "It was all pointless"

If they do resonate, try hard to believe them whilst running each statement through BB.

I know you have tried various modalities, and this can occasionally lead to confusion, overwhelm etc. when you are using them simultaneously. They all have different methodologies.

Tapping, for example, is just a very small part of PSTEC. It's not a tapping or energy modality. The tapping is just there as a pattern interrupt.

PSTEC's core tracks are composed of many complex and proven psychological elements.

Generally, if PSTEC hasn't worked at all for someone, they:

a) misunderstood the instructions or assumed it WAS a tapping/energy modality....and so incorporated other elements of other modalities.
 b) gave up too soon. Sometimes more persistence is needed.
c) didn't really try to feel the feelings (too painful or too difficult)
d) wanted it to not work in some way, as a way to prove their problem was too complex/unsolvable and thus that nothing worked for them...or ever could.
e) encountered a modality that just didn't resonate with them
f) were not focused on the issue at hand

 or

g) they wanted to retain the problem for some reason (e.g. to make someone "pay for what they did", as getting rid of the problem might let them off the hook)

I recommend giving PSTEC another go, Alakh. Even 15 mins a day can have an impact, as you will be chipping away at everything that bothers you.

Even if you decide not to do that, you absolutely can resolve all your fears and make the changes you desire to make.

Please keep us updated.

Best Regards,

Paul

Hi I am following your advice but the click tracks dont seem to be affecting how i feel. the memory/thought is always the same intensity even after click tracking it 2,3 times in a row.
