Many of us have heard of what are called “limiting beliefs”. These are beliefs about ourselves that are programmed and have been there most of our lives. They’re often REMARKS that someone made many years ago that stuck and we accepted them as fact. Here are an excellent examples of limiting beliefs.
In the beginning Baby elephants are always tethered to a strong rope which in turn is tied to a stake in the ground. Try as much, the baby elephant is unable to free itself as the rope as well as the stake are stronger than its strength. After numerous tries, the baby elephant abandons its attempt to be free and accepts the leash as part of life. A new belief has been installed in it that it cannot break free from the rope. Years pass and the baby elephant has now transformed into a full fledged adult elephant with enormous strength. However, the limiting belief still exists in its mind. So, even though it can now easily break the rope because of its huge strength, it does not do so, because it “thinks” that the rope is stronger than itself. In fact, there are stories where, a circus tent caught fire and elephants burned to death because they would not run in spite of the fire because they “thought” that they could not break the rope.
Are you too programming your child’s mind with these limiting beliefs? like: “Why did you only get a B when you could have got an A?” or “Your sister can figure it out, why can’t you?” or “Why would you want to do that? You’ll never make any money”. When parents say such comments their intention is to motivate their children to do better; to strive for something higher. But Do children see it that way? No not really! What they hear is “You don’t measure up” or “You’ll never amount to anything” or “Nothing you do impresses me”. Those words become part of lasting effect of the comments and limiting beliefs. We all have triggers, and people close to us can easily activate those triggers with their words or actions that might remind us of a criticism we heard repeatedly when we were growing up. Hence dear Parents ALWAYS WATCH YOUR WORDS – empower your children with these powerful REIKI and affirmations.
