Thanks for your post and question.
We are, by nature, meaning-makers and there will be feelings associated with the meanings we make/conclusions we reach – this is what we are hardwired to do.
The first meaning you made was that something negative happened to you. You probably based this on the feelings you had/have about the event.
In that case, you can “Click Track as things come up.” As you were negatively impacted, you can try hard to feel the unwanted feelings and CT them down to 0 or 1. When you are neutral about something, you will naturally make different conclusions.
So, go with the feelings first.
To check in with any beliefs you may have formed or which might be influencing your experience, you may wish to ask “what did I conclude about myself, people or life based on this event?”
It will typically be something simple like “I am…”, “People are…”, “Life is…”
There may be more than one belief at play.
If it is something more context-based (e.g. around a certain person, or within work or school), it is probaby not a core belief. Core beliefs like “I am not capable” are typically formed in early childhood. They help influence our thoughts, actions and reactions.
Then, when you identify the belief or conclusion you reached, you can blast it.
These are different ways to achieve the same outcome, so you have some flexibility here.
I hope that helps.
All the best,
