describes a powerful way of removing limiting
beliefs using the Core Belief Process.
Here it is in his words:

Steps in the core belief process

1. Think of a particular problem, situation,
or area of your life you want to improve.

Describe it — take two or three minutes to think
about it or talk about it in general.

2. What emotions are you feeling?
Name the specific emotion, such as fear, anger, frustration, guilt, sadness….
(At the risk of making a broad generalization, I have found most women usually
do this very quickly, and sometimes men stumble around in their heads before
they can bring their attention down into their bodies and simply describe their feelings.)
Don’t get into any particular thoughts you’re having about it at this point, just pinpoint
the single word that describes the emotion.

3. What physical sensations are you feeling?
Explore your body, from your toes to the top of your head.
Is there tension somewhere? What’s going on in your stomach?
What is your breathing like?

4. What are you thinking about?
What tapes are running in your head? What conditioning or programming
can you identify? What negative thoughts, fears, or worries are you having?
Take a few minutes to describe your thoughts.

5. What is the worst thing that could happen in this situation?
Ask yourself, “What is my greatest fear in this situation?” If your greatest fear
came true, then what would be the worst thing that could happen?
If that happened, what would be the very worst thing that could possibly happen?

These questions bring your deepest fears to light.

6. What is the best thing that could happen?
What would you like to happen ideally? What is your ideal scene for this area of your life?

You may find this harder to express than your worst fears. If so, your fears may
have been dominating and overwhelming your vision of success. Maybe you have
been focusing more on the half of the glass that is empty than the half that is full in
your life. Keep the best things, the best possibilities, in mind.

7. What fear or limiting belief is keeping you from creating what
you want in this situation?

Once you’ve explored this, write your limiting or negative belief in one
short sentence, as simply and precisely as you can. If you have more than one,
write them all down. Put them in the form of a belief: I believe that I’m
inadequate…. I believe it’s hard to make money…. I believe my life is stressful and unhealthy at times….

8. Create an affirmation to counteract and correct the negative, limiting belief.
It should be short and simple and meaningful to you, in the present tense,
as if it’s already happening. I am enough…. I am now creating abundance
in my life…. I now live and achieve my goals in an easy and relaxed manner, a healthy and positive way….

Your affirmation is the opposite of your core belief, turning a negative,
limiting phrase into a positive, expansive one. Here are some examples:

Limiting belief: I don’t have enough time to do the things I want to do.
Affirmation: In an easy & relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way,
I have plenty of time to do the things I want to do.

Limiting belief:I have to struggle to survive.
Affirmation:I am creating total success in an easy and relaxed manner, a healthy and positive way.

Limiting belief: I’m under a lot of pressure at work; it’s unavoidable in my high-pressure job.
Affirmation: In an easy & relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way,
I now relax and enjoy myself at work, and accomplish everything easily.

Limiting belief: Money corrupts people.
Affirmation: In an easy & relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way,
the more money that comes into my life, the more power I have to do good
for myself, for others, and for the world.

Limiting belief:The world is a dangerous place.
Affirmation: In an easy & relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way,
I now live in a safe, wonderful world.

Limiting belief:It’s so hard to have a loving, ongoing relationship.
Affirmation: I now have a loving, ongoing relationship, in an easy and
relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way.

Limiting belief:I don’t have what it takes to succeed.
Affirmation: I have everything I need to create success as I choose to define it.
Or: I am now creating my success, in an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way.

9. Say or write your affirmation repeatedly, over a period of several days.
Write your affirmation down and put it where you’ll see it often.
Repeat your affirmation silently to yourself, while relaxing.
Picture everything working out exactly as you want it to.

Keep repeating it until you feel you’ve absorbed it as a positive core belief.
If negative thoughts come up, write those thoughts on the back of the paper,
and then keep writing the affirmations on the front until it feels free of any emotional resistance.

That’s the entire core belief process. It has worked magic in my life.

An affirmation for your consideration that I found effective.

I am sensible and in control of my finances.
I am creating total financial success,
in an easy and relaxed manner,
in a healthy and positive way,
in its own perfect time,
for the highest good of all.
