I ask this question to myself, my clients, and want to pose this self-awareness question to you.
Why do you believe what you believe?
You might have to actually ask yourself what you believe before you can even get into the why of what you believe. And the journal prompts below will get you there.
As a spiritual journeyer on this gorgeous voyage I’ve committed to, one thing I’ve had to do is get really clear on what I believe, if what I believe is serving me to become a better version of myself, and why I believe what I do.
When we do the inner work to ascend into a higher version of ourselves, we almost have to break down every old idea or belief we had that was conditioned by someone else OR that we internalized a certain way that led to us believing some down right ugly beliefs.
When this can get the most messy is usually related to religious beliefs and that’s a subject I was previously very confused about. I also avoided talking about it with others because I don’t like conflict and when you get into religious beliefs and questioning WHY, there can be some major triggers that happen. I mean, we have wars over this stuff because we have such conviction about our belief in God and who God is.
Why does it really matter if you believe what you believe and if you’re willing to shift those beliefs? Well, it really comes down to if you are complacent with who you are and where you are in life now or if you are ready to create new beliefs so you can grow personally and spiritually. I have chosen to grow and therefore some of my previous beliefs had to die.
Here are some of the deepest beliefs that I’ve had to look at in terms of WHY and are opening me up to answers I have within and plenty more research on history, religion, and humanity.
Who is God? Why do I believe this? Who do I want God to be?
Who am I? Why do I believe this? Who do I want to be?

What do I believe is my Truth? Why do I believe this? How can I be true to myself?
What do I believe about expressing myself? Why do I believe this? How can I feel safe fully expressing myself?
You see, these can be dissected for just about anything in our lives. We have all the answers we need within but sometimes need to access our higher wisdom though using techniques. All the ways I have grown and continue living a more magic filled life are what has changed me from within.
I don’t go a day without asking myself deep questions, getting in touch with Spirit and my higher self, writing out my I am statements and future life, sharing a message of my truth with my tribe, and living in appreciation of the planet and something in my life.
Are you willing to look at your beliefs to grow? I’d love to hear what your realizations are around some of these questions.
