Reply To: After identifying a core belief
Hey AAA … couple salient point here on this…
First, while it CAN be true that “… there are strong emotions behind core belief … “; that is not always the case. You can have a strongly reinforced belief without any emotions involved.
But, as you alluded to the PSTEC Negative (PN) Guide, if there are emotions, best to neutralize those prior to running PN on negative and limiting beliefs.
So, if there are emotions, here's how you can tell…
1. When you repeat the negative belief … “I am a loser” in this example … how does that make you feel to BE a loser? What do you imagine when you say, “I am a loser?”
You can start to see memories and imagined events with the feeling.
Keep in mind, again, that you don't have to feel the feeling to run the CT on it; just TRY HARD to feel the feeling.
2. Another say is to ask yourself, 'Why do I believe I am a loser?”
What is the evidence that you are a loser?
Give me an example of what it means to be a loser.
This will bring up memories and imagined events. When it does, take one at a time, and see how you feel about it… note it … rate the feeling … CT it… CT each one.
