    2. 2. What Is A Belief? “ We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.” – The Buddha A belief is an idea about your experience that you hold to be true. Such an idea guides your actions, filters your experience, gives or denies you permission to act, lets you know how things work and what things mean.

    26. 26. I am not … “I am not allowed to be happy”

(It may, or may not, be the positive belief). </li></ul><li>I often feel confused after the belief flip, is that normal? </li><ul><li>Yes, once the old belief is gone you brain has to sort through all the elements, memories, feelings that constructed that old memory to update it. This re-filing and re-assessing can take time and you may feel a little confused or disoriented for a while afterwards. </li></ul></ul>

    219. 219. Important If your belief is the result of traumatic, or multiple incidents of trauma or abuse, this process probably won’t be enough to undo the belief. You may need extensive work with EFT or other modalities to take care of those experiences before you can use the Belief Flip on these beliefs. If you suspect this is the case, seek the help of a suitably qualified and experienced practitioner.
