Denial Isn’t a River in Egypt
But being in denial about your feelings and beliefs, pretending they’re something other than what they really are, can actually get you in a lot of trouble with the architecture paradigm. Don’t ever pretend you feel better than you do or believe something more positive than you do; positive affirmations and statements, positive intentions, and desires for positive outcomes do not always equate with your true beliefs.
Since the quantum field is responding to your true beliefs (and not your surface-level desires) when it manifests your physical reality, you can often fool yourself into thinking you have positive beliefs about something when you really don’t. So it is very important to acknowledge your feelings and beliefs, just where they are currently, as you also learn not to personalize them.
Practice Makes Perfect
Your beliefs, after all, are only your most practiced, habitual thoughts. Certainly your beliefs feel 100% true to you; after all, your beliefs were not only bestowed to you by people and groups you trusted and/or allowed to influence you, but also you are intimately familiar with them since you have held them and invested yourself in them for such a long time.
And like your beliefs, your feelings, while very real to you, are not “facts”. Your feelings are merely your physical responses to one simple criterion: how closely (or how far apart) your current beliefs are matched up with your dreams and desires. Your feelings, like your beliefs, are true for you (and you alone) and, because of that, shouldn’t be discounted nor denied. Yet it’s also very important to recognize that your feelings are simply emotional feedback for how closely your beliefs are currently aligning with your aspirations for yourself in this moment.
You are Not Your Cut Finger
As you practice objectifying your beliefs and feelings, by seeing them this way rather than personifying them as you have most likely spent your life doing, you will gain freedom from the power they currently have over your state of being. And you will gain the freedom to examine them without so much emotional investment. When you cut your finger, after all, you don’t say, “I am now a sliced, physically imperfect human being”, do you? You simply say, “I currently have a cut on my finger (but my current state of having a cut is not who I am).”
Similarly, when you have a feeling, like sadness, you are not required to say, “I am sad”. You can, instead, now say, “I am experiencing sadness in this moment (but sadness is not who I am).” That second statement still acknowledges your feeling – you’re not in denial nor are you pretending you don’t feel sad. However, the second statement makes it very clear that you are not your feelings; you are merely experiencing a feeling. And that distinction, as you’ve learned, makes a world of difference.
