Welcome to another episode of Inner Archeology, and the first
that we are releasing with video! Should you wish to watch us
rather than listen to us, we hope that seeing our faces helps you
connect with us on a deeper level. Today, we’re talking about
something we have touched on before: consciously choosing our own
beliefs. This is an interesting concept, and one that isn’t as
simple as it sounds. Whether you realize it or not, your reality is
built on a system of beliefs that you have selected for yourself.
Are you choosing beliefs that allow you to live a better life? Or
are you clinging to limiting beliefs that no longer serve you? We
dive into all this and more in this episode, from our personal
experiences of deconstructing and rebuilding our belief systems to
how we believe you can practice compassion for yourself, shift away
from fear and judgment, and find equilibrium while adjusting your
own belief system. You can hold beliefs that empower you, allow you
to achieve your goals, and feel worthy of love; you just have to
choose them! Tune in today to learn more!
