4 Steps to Overcome Self-Limiting Beliefs

  1. Identify your limiting beliefs. Be specific.

What is holding you back in your life? What is it you want to change? It could be around relationships, self-worth, money, insecurities, unprocessed emotions, etc. Try journaling around this topic and/or talking to a friend, therapist, or coach about what you feel is holding you back. Get crystal clear on what you want to change.

2. Realize the truth.

The truth is that you are limitless. It’s only in our minds that we ever feel less than. Adapt to a growth mindset about the possibilities for yourself, rather than a fixed mindset, which will not help you change. Remembering your wholeness is key. You are whole and lacking nothing. You have all you need of this earth to live the life of your dreams. You are supported and guided in every step you take toward living your best life. If this feels hard for you to remember, try a meditation. It’s easier to feel your wholeness when we let go of the outside world. Fill your mind with positivity and inspiration daily and cut out media that doesn’t serve your highest good. 

3. Reset your limitations

This is my favorite part! Once we see our limitations and realize how silly they are to live with when we are know we have control on who we become, we get to create our new mindset. Daily Repetition is key while we preprogram our belief systems. Having someone to hold you accountable is helpful. 

A powerful way to create our new limitless belief system is through affirmations, meditation, and visualization. We have to dig deep and go into our subconscious minds if we want to truly experience lasting behavioral change. The following practices do that. 

Meditation

In a meditative state we can easily penetrate into the deeper layers of our minds. Our subconscious mind rules over 95% of our behavior and so that’s where we need to do the real work. Meditate for at least 10 minutes a day while doing your affirmations and visualizations. They will be much more powerful while you are in a susceptible state of mind.

Affirmations – I am ______

I call affirmations sacred sentences. They are one-liners to speak, write, chant, and/or think on a daily basis. They are words that rewrite the story of our lives to our liking. Humans run off their stories whether we like it or not, so taking control of our story is incredibly powerful.

Use the phase “I am _____” For example, if you want to see more money in your life begin saying “I am a money magnet. I am abundance. I am paid for my great work. I am worthy of all I desire.”

Get creative and customize your own to best suite you. Write them on sticky notes and place them around your house. Make them the home screen on you phone. Get used to saying them outloud daily. You can speak things into existence. Record yourself saying them on audio. Do guided meditations with your favorite affirmations. There are thousands of free ones online.

I hope you realize how incredibly powerful and capable you are of changing your life.

Visualization

Whatever we see, feel, and think consistently will show up in our lives. Envisioning your desired outcome will get you there faster. If you’re limiting belief is that you can’t do something, begin visualizing yourself doing it. Feel the fear, accept it, and then watch it fall away. If you want to travel to Paris but your limiting belief is that you can’t afford it, start visualizing yourself there. The “how?” is not your problem. Get very specific on the details of your vision. Create a vision board. The key is to FEEL the emotion of your desire before you have it. Feel this way as much as you can throughout your life and watch how quickly things change for the better.

4. Marry Your Vision. Know it’s already done.

Bring yourself to a state where it’s already done. KNOW and FEEL that you are the embodiment of who you want to become. If you feel weak and helpless but your affirmation is “I am strong” know you already are strong by embodying strength in meditation. Get used to this feeling and carry it with you. Now that you know it’s inside of you and that you are capable of experiencing it in the world, you will become a magnet for this experience in your life.

Move into the space of the person you want to become on a consistent basis.

Things are worse in our minds than in reality. Tuning up your mindset on a regular basis is well worth it.

These tools are fun and they have majority enhanced my life. It does not work if you do not implement; try it before you judge it!

My Simple Skin Care Routine While I Travel

I’ve had trouble with acne in the past and have finally figured out how to get the skin I want. It took over a year of seeing various specialists in various fields, from dermatology to functional medicine. I’ve tried A LOT of natural remedies, dietary restrictions, vitamins, etc. I refused to take antibiotics or birth control like typical western doctors wanted to prescribe me.

Here’s what I’ve learned: If you are having acne there is an imbalance on your skin and/or in your body that is saying it needs help. Don’t just mask the symptoms; find the root cause and heal it.

While traveling, your body may be under more stress and so it’s more important to take care of your skin. Here are some tips and a routine that will leave you with glowing and radiant skin while you travel.

First step, stop putting harmful chemicals and toxins on your skin. Check out this list of common ingredients to ALWAYS avoid. They ruin the microbiome of your skin, strip it’s natural oils, and some are endocrine disruptors that are linked to cancer. This is important. Opt for organic products. It’s always worth it to pay more for quality when it comes to your health and wellbeing.

Second step, Keep your space clean. Disinfect cell phone often. Clean your makeup often with an alcohol spray. Wash your pillow case a couple times a week. silk pillowcases hold less bacteria. Wash your face twice a day with the right products for your skin type. When you rinse your face, use a fresh cloth every time. Opt for Organic. Include products with probiotics.

Third step, follow this routine to get max benefits with your products. An aesthetician I trust taught me the proper routine to follow when applying your different skin treatments. It’s not just what you have, it’s how you use it. Here’s the routine:

AM

  • Cleanse
  • Tone
  • Treat
  • Moisturize
  • Makeup Application
  • Sun Protection

PM

  • Cleanse and exfoliate
  • Tone
  • Treat
  • Moisturize

MASK APPLICATION

(before a mask at night you want to cleanse, exfoliate, tone and treat first)

  • Mask – 15 minutes and then remove
  • Tone
  • Treat
  • Moisturize

*Guide for Layering Products: Lightest to Richest

Cutting back on processed food and sugar is key as well. I stopped eating gluten and dairy and this made my skin clear up more. I also started supplementing with high quality whole food supplements that fixed nutrient deficiencies I realized I had when I got my blood paneled by a functional medicine doctor. All of these things combined will do wonders for your skin. It is true that beauty comes from the inside. If you want radiant skin you have to treat your entire body with love and nourishment.

The brand Eminence Organics is my favorite organic skincare line; handmade in Hungary. I have had amazing results with them over the last 2 years. They also plant a tree with every product sold.
