This is part five of a five-part series on Beliefs.
If you’ve followed along with the ‘Belief’ series, you have learned how your belief system was formed, what a limiting belief is, how to discover your own limiting beliefs, and how to clear limiting beliefs. And now, you’re at my favorite part of the entire series… how to create new more empowering beliefs.
This is where you get to get creative… and have a whole lot of fun!
The way a new belief is created is the same way all of your old beliefs were created, through repetition of a thought or idea.
A belief is only an idea one has accepted as the truth
In creating a new belief, you can use some of the same techniques you used in clearing your limiting beliefs, but this time, rather than focusing on improving an old belief, you will be focusing on creating a new one.
Affirmations and Visualization
Affirmations and Visualization are my foundational tools in clearing limiting beliefs as well as creating new beliefs. They are powerful tools that are simple to use and very effective.
With affirmations, we simply identify an affirmation that supports a new belief we would like to have and then repeat the affirmation often and with feeling.
With visualization, we create a visualization of our life the way it would be if we had this new belief and we do this visualization often and with feeling.
Now, let me say something I mentioned in my previous post, as much as I love affirmations and visualizations, they are limited by the degree your subconscious mind is willing to accept them… and if there is a limiting belief that is much stronger than the new belief you are trying to create, the affirmations or visualizations are going to be kicked right back out until the limiting belief has been removed or, at the least, softened up a bit.
If you’re having trouble feeling the possibility of your affirmations or visualizations, you may need to check in to see if there may be a limiting belief in the way.
Some additional ways to create new beliefs include:
Find Examples of the truth and possibility that support your new belief.
Let’s say you wanted to create a new belief of, “It is possible to look and feel youthful at 40/50/60/70.”
To support this belief, look outside of yourself to other people you know. You’re sure to know someone in whom this belief would be true. And if you can’t find anyone in your close circle, expand your circle until you find people who embody your new belief. You will find them. Find as many examples as you can that support your new belief.
Now, you can create a new affirmation that may have a bit more influence, “(Person in your example) looks and feels youthful at 40/50/60/70, therefore I am willing to see this as a possibility for myself as well.”
Now you have a new more powerful affirmation that should be much more acceptable to your subconscious mind. But again, depending if there are any limiting beliefs that counteract your new belief, it may or may not be effective and you may still need to use other techniques to clear the limiting belief before creating the new one.
Vision Board or Vision Story
Create a Vision Board with examples that support your new belief. Fill your vision board with pictures, quotes, and anything that supports the truth and possibility of your new belief.
I have written a post on creating a Vision Board where I go into much more detail about creating your board.
You can also write a Vision Story. A Vision Story is like a Vision Board, only it is in the form of a story.
Write a Vision Story about your life with your new belief as it it’s already a deeply entrenched belief of yours.

Become an Actor/Actress
Our subconscious does not know the difference between something that is actually happening and something we are just imagining, so in pretending that something is already true, we can actually implant what we are pretending to be as a truth within our subconscious mind.
Get into character and imagine your new belief to be true. How would you act? What would you talk about? What would you be looking for when you search on the internet? What type of stories would you be reading? Who would you hang out with? Whatever your character with that belief would be doing, do it.
Do this often and have fun with it!
If you find you’re having difficulty getting into the part, you may want to check in on any limiting beliefs that may be blocking the good feeling you should be having from your play time.
These are some simple and fun ways you can begin to create new beliefs. Some ideas can turn into beliefs in an almost instant and others may take a bit more work. But keep at it. It’s worth it. The most import thing is to remain consistent with the new idea you are introducing to your subconscious mind.
