A wise person once said that an un-examined life is not worth living. The way to True Freedom is paved with our consistent efforts to examine our thoughts and beliefs about ourselves and the world and discard those that are limiting or not helpful. And the Releasing Process in one of the most powerful tools available to us to let go of our limitations. This article focuses specifically on material abundance. Many of us carry many limiting beliefs about money and wealth. We try different techniques, attend many self-development seminars which focus on helping us get rich but unfortunately, most of us do not attain anything, mainly because we have not resolved yet to understand what beliefs are hidden deep within our minds which control all our behaviors and thereby the results we produce with regard to material abundance. Releasing Process helps us to discover our inner-limitations and eradicate them.
Let’s examine our beliefs about abundance. Below are many statements listed which are related to material wealth. As we read through the statements we will discover that some or most of them are not merely statements for us, but that they are our deeply-held beliefs about money and material abundance.
As you read through the sentences, whenever you detect an emotional response or any reaction within you, then allow yourself to welcome that and gently let it go. Keep letting go until you feel peaceful enough. Then you move on to the next statement. Keep doing the same process until all statements in the below list are finished.
