DWQA QuestionsCategory: Limiting BeliefsIt seems safety is, in essence, a complex miasma of beliefs, often contradictory. Can Creator tell us how belief replacement can work effectively on this problem? We are told, however, that beliefs that are held and embraced by the individual, are often left alone or avoided because they are considered a product of, or adoption by, free will choice. This seems to be one of the biggest barriers there is in terms of getting help from the divine, for people identify quite strongly with their outlooks and beliefs about safety and what constitutes it. What can Creator tell us?

This indeed is a conundrum, that because beliefs are powerful and so important in the scheme of things, they must be reckoned with in order to deal with many kinds of adversity and help people remain on an even keel and restore a healthier outlook when they give in to fear and negativity. At the same time, and for the reason beliefs are so important in governing all that happens and can be allowed to happen because of the makeup of a person as determined by the beliefs they hold, the ability to change negative beliefs into neutral or positive ones is one of the most powerful ways to obtain healing. That cannot be done arbitrarily by the divine realm because it does go against free will. This leaves a person stuck, having been programmed by self-limiting beliefs to be less effective, less happy, and working against themselves. And because they are a product of free will and people have the free will and free agency to make their own choices, including to feel badly, fear the future, and even hate themselves, we cannot simply step in and change that, even though we know it would lift a dark cloud from their existence and be a blessing, but at the same time, it would usurp their power to be in charge, and then we would be running their life and not them.

So this dilemma does have an answer, and that is for the individual to partner with Creator to obtain some help through direct requests for assistance in changing the negative self-limiting beliefs to help them be a healthier, happier individual in their makeup, their inner programming, so to speak. That can be done, but it must be done with someone with belief in the divine and belief in their own worthiness to receive a divine intervention of this magnitude. People are not taught about such things and how to go about developing such a partnership. Most people do not recognize the true dimensions of their own limitations—where they come from, why they are there, and the options that are available to reckon with the difficulty they face in having many distortions of thinking, perhaps a number of bad habits, and self-destructive, self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors. They are not only too close to the problem, they are uneducated and untutored to lack a full understanding of levels of the mind, where problems come from, and what the divine can do in partnership with them to change things for the better. That is quite a tragedy because the need is so great for everyone in the human realm, at this point, suffering a huge backlog of unmet karmic healing and repair needs of all kinds.
