Health challenges are good for bringing beliefs to the surface. Here are some that still come up for me, sometimes – as this weekend – triggered by a simple cold:
I won’t be able to function, people will judge me.
I am a disappointment to god/others/myself.
I am not living up to my potentials.
I am responsible for the cf/dark night.
I shouldn’t feel tired. I need to have more energy (in order to do what I want).
It’s cf. It’s a dark night.
I can’t do what I want.
It’s not what I want. **
Looking at some underlying beliefs:
I won’t be able to function because….
I don’t have enough energy/clarity.
I am not fit enough for this world.
I won’t be able to function and that means…..
I won’t have a comfortable life.
People will judge/look down on me.
People will leave me. I will be alone.
I will be lost. My life will spiral down.
I am responsible for the cf and that means….
It reflects on my character. I have a weak character.
People will judge me/look down at me.
I am a disappointment to myself/others/God.
People won’t like me -> They will leave me -> I will be lost -> My life will spiral down -> My life/mind will disintegrate -> I will cease to exist.
