How to Change Beliefs

A course subscriber sent me this email about ten weeks after starting the Self Mastery Course.

From Steven and his wife M.

I don’t know where to begin in telling you how the audio sessions have helped us.

Just as a sort of stream of consciousness narrative I will say that when the Emotions audio session arrived it changed our lives more than years and years of counseling. Sometimes Marina has felt overwhelmed by emotions. I haven’t felt overwhelmed by them but have become quite proficient at hiding them, denying them and pretending I’m not affected by them.

Your analogy about the emotions being the feelings when your hand is on a stove and the emotions are not the problem. The problem has more to do with the stories we are telling ourselves. Whew, that had been so unconscious for us and yet when you said it, it was self-obvious. Of course by knowing that, it doesn’t stop the stories, but it is such a ray of light on the process.

After being more and more aware of the stories, to get the Archetype audio session in which we deconstruct some common themes in the stories, that is just awesome.

We both like the way your audio sessions are practical, down to earth and easy to understand, which is rare. Marina and I have found that many teachers end up having said, after you boil down all their flowery words “forgive and be happy” or something like that. Yet if we could do that we wouldn’t need a course or a therapist. Your course has practical step by step exercises that can be applied in a progressive way.

The way I found your website was by putting these search words in Google: “How to change your beliefs, as I had come to realize that beliefs were creating my world to a large extent. Another website that I have found interesting information on is: He talks about experiencing life as a pure consciousness experience without an identity mediating between us and what we see, hear, taste, smell or feel.

Our flight leaves on Monday to India and we won’t be back for a month, so thanks again for allowing us to take the sessions with us.

We feel very lucky to have found your website.

Steven and M.
