I’m sure you’ve heard this expression before – or at least one like it.
But did you know that this expression communicates a limiting belief? It’s actually a limiting belief of the worst kind because it will attract negative things to you.
Let me explain…
You see, every ‘mind’ likes to be right!
If you have a belief that “bad things come in threes” and something bad happens, your subconscious mind will be on constant alert for the other two bad things so that it will feel “complete” in its knowledge and assumptions.
Your mind’s need to be right is so powerful that it may even attract bad things to you.
Learn how to break this limiting belief and end the cycle
Remember that your mind works on two levels – the conscious level and the subconscious level. The conscious level is your “thinking mind” – you are aware of your thoughts.
The subconscious level is the part of your mind you are not consciously aware of – it is where your deep memories, intuition, and belief systems live.
You may recall from our article “Who’s Flying Your Plane,” that your subconscious mind is much more powerful than your conscious mind.
Limiting beliefs at the subconscious level can impact your life without you being consciously aware of them. For that reason, it is important to uncover these limiting beliefs so that you can change them.
The best way to uncover limiting beliefs is to listen to your own language – pay attention to what you say both to yourself and to others. If you hear yourself say something like, “bad things come in threes” ask yourself, “Is this really true? Why would I want to believe this?”
Once you’ve uncovered the belief, you have a choice to make – you can either continue with the belief or you can change it.
Changing the belief simply involves recognizing it and consciously deciding to believe something different. For example, if you want to shift the belief that “bad things come in threes” then each time something negative happens you could say something like, “Bad things are one and done. Good things are coming my way.”
Changing your belief enables you to shut down the negative energy from whatever happened and prepares both your conscious mind and your subconscious mind to create something positive.
The good news is that you can choose your beliefs.
And by the way… good things come in abundance and are headed your way!
