As a Chek Practitioner, I rely heavily on the Chek system because quite simply, it works. I have yet to find another system as comprehensive and results-producing.
In the Chek system there are six foundation principles:
Sleep, Nutrition, Hydration, Breathing, Thinking, and Movement
These are the six key areas that need to be addressed in order to create a well-rounded program.
They are each important in themselves, and they are also very connected with and influenced by one another.
I bring this up because even though I may focus on one area, I don't want to give the impression that any one area is more or less important than another and I also want to keep the reference point that you can't properly address one area without addressing them all because they are interrelated.
When it comes to your thinking -- specifically, your self-limiting beliefs -- it's firstly important that you become aware of your thoughts. It's very hard to change what you're not aware of. This is where mindfulness practices like meditation and tai chi come into play.
And by the way, a self-limiting belief is any belief that you're holding onto (and often accepting as undeniable fact) that's creating an experience you don't want.
The cool thing is that once you begin to become aware of these thought patterns, you can then give yourself the power to change them.
Which brings us to the second step, which is recognizing that your potential is virtually limitless -- only limited by your own beliefs about what's possible. The challenge with this is that most of these beliefs were programmed into us by our parents, teachers, society, etc. before we even had the capacity to question them. But that doesn't take away from the fact that they are just beliefs and beliefs can be changed.
So once you recognize these self-limiting beliefs, you can then make it a practice to upgrade them every time they come into your awareness.
This is the third step: create practices that reinforce the thought, word, and behavior patterns that are more aligned with what you say you want to experience in your life. Whenever I see a thought pattern that I'm holding onto I like to ask myself, "Is that really true?"
Is it really true that I'm not good enough?
Is it really true that I don't have enough?
Is it really true that this is just the way I am?
And if you've followed step two, you've likely realized that those things aren't true because your potential is limitless.
From here it's just a matter of staying consistent with your practices long enough to rewire your thinking to these new "self-expansive" belief patterns.
I made a video today getting into greater depth on exactly how to implement this process in your life so that you can transform your life. I invite you to watch it here.
