Letting Go of Beliefs Using Emotional Release Techniques

Why Do We Have Emotions?

I was so confused by emotions growing up.  My father seemed to have too few, and my mother seemed to have too many.  My mother’s way of emotional release wasn’t pretty.  I decided at a young age, that I wanted to find the true purpose of emotions.

Most people hate their emotions.  They go to extreme lengths to avoid or suppress them.  If addictions or distractions don’t sooth their emotional body, they make their environment sterile from triggering events and people.  Then their lives start to mimic a fish in a glass bowl.  Every day looks the same — nothing ever changes.  Others develop a hard shell and lose their ability to be intimate or authentic with others.  Avoiding emotions isn’t the answer.

 

Emotions Turn Us Inward

Emotions are designed to pull us inward so we’ll examine our minds and let go of problematic beliefs (causes).  Ideally, when we feel emotion, we’d remove our attention from what is outside and turn inside.  We’d witness or follow the emotion to the causal belief.  We’d let the causal belief go, and the emotion would go too.

When we release, suppress, or express our emotions without finding the causal belief, we create a temporary fix, not a permanent cure.

 

If your beliefs are serving you and harmless to others, you won’t feel emotions and you won’t cause emotional outbursts in others.  Emotions were wrongfully blamed because they reveal beliefs; they keep us truthful.  They push us to be ourselves.

Often people in our past didn’t like our True Self.  They forced their beliefs on us in order to make us like them.  We twisted our minds to think that the emotion we felt around their beliefs confirms their rightness, creating psychological reversal.

We have two choices in life.  We can let go of our desire to live in the world authentically as our True Self and follow the path of our beliefs (false self), or we can let go of whatever beliefs pulled us into the illusion and live as our True Selves.

 

Emotional Release Techniques

Most therapy is about creating an emotional release because emotions are considered evil within the illusion.  If you want complete freedom, you need techniques that free beliefs, not just emotions.  Eliminating emotions provides relief, but it doesn’t eliminate the cause.

If you examine the emotional release technique of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), the practitioner advises the client to rub themselves or tap on certain meridians while saying words like, “Even though I’m very ashamed of myself, I unconditionally love and accept myself.”  Those words still accept the notion of shame as real or possible.  Shame exists only in the illusion so the action is trying to fix the illusory shame rather than let it go.  Shame doesn’t exist in the True Self.

The patient believes they’ve fixed the problem, and so it appears.  But they’ve really put ice cream on top of manure and created a sundae.  They’re left with shame plus a belief that shame was removed.  They don’t get the complete release of knowing that shame isn’t real.

In the illusion, there’s a core principal that the illusion is true.  Therefore, you can’t let it go.  Doctors, therapists, lawyers, government, military, teachers, inventors, and parents are all trying to fix the illusion.  Thus, the illusion stays in tack.  To get free, you have to let go the illusion — not fix it.

 

Letting Go is True Emotional Release

Before I discovered how to let go, I tried to EFT.  I feared that I was going to put holes in my body because I tapped so much.  I lived in an environment where beliefs were spoken all the time.  It was clear that emotional release techniques didn’t help because my environment triggered beliefs and created new emotions as fast as I could release them.

We could adapt the language of EFT to include letting go so it becomes more than just emotional release. You’d do that by changing the language to include discrimination.  When you rub or tap to say, “Even though…blah, blah,” you could change the words to, “I let go of the belief that I’m a bad person because shame is a false idea.”  However, you can’t fake letting go; it can’t just be about saying the words like a mantra.

You must recognize that your belief in shame is false.  Your True Self never did anything wrong, even if your false self did.  Everything judged bad is false because anything bad or evil is caused by false beliefs like the notion of good and evil, and you didn’t invent that.

Bad or wrong only happens within the illusion.  In the illusion, it ALWAYS takes two to tango.  Victimhood is clearly part of the illusion.  Every event in the illusion is about two opposing charges coming together.  Most people are stuck in the illusion because they’ve been labeled bad or wrong, while the person holding the opposing charge is also stuck in their false goodness and irresponsibility.  If we get that, we can free ourselves completely.

When we let go of a causal belief, we return to our True Self.  Emotional release occurs as a natural biproduct.

 

Discrimination

If we do emotional release with discrimination, we’ll eventually realize that tapping is silly.  We’ll realize that what caused the letting go was always the fact that we discriminated between true and false.  We somehow got to the truth and realized that there is no bad or evil.  We realized that shame is illusory.  We can now eliminate the middle man and forget the tapping or breathing or any other ritual.

Emotional release is only a temporary fix.  If we don’t let the causal belief go, it will keep creating reality and those related emotions will return.  When we do the complete job of letting go at the cause, we never have the same problem or experience again.  We’re one belief closer to the freedom of a pure virgin mind.

 

How to Find a Causal Belief

Beliefs are LIES we accept as TRUTH.

The Causal Belief

We eliminate problems by finding the causal belief.  The initiates said that all causes are mental.  We’re all mentally ill.

Finding the causal belief of any problem isn’t difficult.  We’re just trained to look in the wrong places.

The false self is our entire collection of beliefs working together like an army.  The army has a collective identity.  That identity feels a power loss when you let go of a belief.  It behaves as if a soldier has died.  It sees the True Self as it’s enemy because the True Self is more powerful and can destroy the army.  Letting go of beliefs is a lot like fighting a battle.  In fact, that is the meaning of Armageddon — it’s the inner final battle between our True Self and our false self.

 

How to Find the Causal Belief  

Here’s how I did it the very first time.  Since then my methods have become more advanced, but they still rest on this basic technique.

1.  Why do you want to find the causal belief?  Your motive must resonate with the True Self — health, freedom, peace, unconditional love are perfect.  Win-lose intentions don’t work.

2.  Find the observer in your mind.  You can’t let go if you’re wallowing in your emotions or contemplating your thoughts.  Those are false self activities.  The observer (or watcher) is the part of your mind that witnesses your thoughts and emotions.  It’s your True Self.  It is all-powerful and can discriminate and let go.

You activate your observer by imagining that your thoughts are projected on a screen.  The part of your mind that is reading (and hearing) the thoughts is the observer.

3.  Once you’ve found the observer, think of something you fear or a problem.  You should feel emotion in your body.  If you don’t feel emotion, you probably project your emotions on to others.  Ask yourself, who would get emotional about this problem?  There’s your emotions.  Stay in the place of the observer.  Don’t label the emotion.  Just watch it, and feel it.

Everyone’s born with emotions, but we forgot their true purpose.  People treat their emotions as unnecessary, like tonsils.  Authority figures hate emotions because they expose their lies.  Our emotions are our smothered inner Goddess who discriminates and keeps us on our path.  Without her, the nasty ass false God inside our mind wastes our life fighting wars.

Our emotions were designed  to let us know when our thinking was taking us away from the truth.   They also tell us when to believe another person.  To understand this, you have to see your mind as a container of thought.  Our True Selves are collective (one).  The false self was designed to be a separate creative container; we weren’t meant to share beliefs.  But we do.

A free person constantly observes their mind.  They think a thought (cause); then their emotions (effect) give feedback.  If they think a true thought, they feel calm, emotionless.  If they think a false thought or belief, they feel agitated or emotional.  All emotions are the same.  We label them based on circumstances.  You’ll see how perfectly this was designed.

4.  To find the causal thought, we reverse the process.  Our inner observer watches the emotion (effect).  As we watch the emotion, beliefs pop into our mind; all of them are false.  The emotion eventually takes us to a causal belief.

When any belief arises in our mind, it sounds true.  After all, we accepted it as truth from an authority.  It’s tempting to believe it again.  Avoid that temptation.

5.  We  let the belief go by reminding ourself that it’s false.  I usually repeat something in my mind like, “This belief is false because it doesn’t feel good.”  You will find words that work for you.  The key is to stick with it.  You’re trying to kill a soldier in your army of false beliefs.  You want it dead, not hopping around on one leg.  When it’s difficult to let go, you’re battling a seemingly powerful authority figure, like a general.

You’ll notice a shift once your mind accepts that a belief is a lie and lets go.  Then the emotion dissipates or another belief appears to let go.  Continue until all emotion is gone.  The trick is to not believe anything your mind says while watching the emotion.  This process can take five minutes or five hours.  Persistence pays off.

 

It Gets Easier

The process is like riding a bike.  It eventually clicks.  You’ll wonder how in the hell you could have missed something so obvious all your life.  You missed it because you were trained to miss it.  We think our inner (and outer) army is protecting us when it actually causes all of our problems.

Consistent letting go rewires your mind so it naturally discriminates.  You’ll no longer accept beliefs that are false even if spoken by an authority.

When you complete the process, you’ll notice a calm feeling; you might laugh hysterically because the belief was so insane, or sometimes you’ll get an insight into life.

 

Final Warning

You might be shocked at the beliefs that arise.  I’ve had beliefs about curses, karma, evil, sin, and religions I’ve never practiced.  I didn’t think I believed any of them, but I did.  Don’t worry about how you got beliefs.  Just let them go.  You can’t screw up because you can’t let go of truth.

Treat the process like a game.  The false self loves to make things serious.  Every time you let go, your True Self grows in power.  Eventually, you’ll realize that you don’t need an army, and you’ll dismantle the whole damn thing.  You’ll be free.
