Belief Self-Diagnosis Exercise


This exercise will help you expose your own subconscious (invisible) beliefs to your conscious mind.  At the end of the exercise, you’ll be asked to consider three beliefs you would like to change. We will take this further when I visit you in your class – this next week, and you can find additional information and resources at the end of this process.

Step One:  Uncover Your Beliefs

You will need a journal or a pad of paper.  Contemplate each question below, and write down every belief you can think of in that category. 

Begin by saying to yourself, “Something I believe about myself is…”  Let your thoughts flow and keep your pen moving. Don’t judge your beliefs, argue with them, or censor them.  Just allow whatever comes up to be written down.  Write down all of them, even if they sound absurd or strange to you.  When your subconscious talks, it’s a good time to listen.  Give yourself a few minutes to write freely on each question.

Answer as many questions as you can in one sitting.  You can always come back and explore the remaining questions later.

The Belief Questions

What do I believe about…




  • Myself

  • My body

  • My health

  • My work

  • My financial situation

  • My sexuality

  • My abilities

  • My limitations

  • My attitudes

  • My soul, spirit or spiritual self

  • My circumstances

  • God/Spirit/Source

  • Money

  • Handicaps, injuries, illnesses

  • My family

  • My relationships

  • My government

  • The world

  • Good and Evil

  • Truth

  • Life

  • The past

  • The future

  • My beliefs




Step Two:  Understand Your Beliefs

Go through each belief on your list and circle between five and ten beliefs that have the most negative charge for you – that is, the beliefs you feel really interfere with your life.  Next to each circled belief, write down your answers to the following questions:


  1. Has this belief been beneficial to me in my life or detrimental to me?



  1. Was this belief indoctrinated into me?  If so, by whom?  Did I ever consciously choose to believe it?   If so, when?  And why did I do so?



  1. What has been the advantage of having this belief?  How has it served me in my life?  What did I get or gain by having this belief?  What did I avoid by having this belief?



  1. Who would I be without this belief? 



  1. What would be different in my life if I held a different belief about this subject?



  1. Would I be willing to try out a different belief?



  1. What belief could I replace it with that would be more positive, beneficial, and empowering in my life?


Step Three:  Which Beliefs Would You Like To Change?

Next, pick one to three of these beliefs that you would like to change, and write them here: 


  1. ______________________________________________________.



  1. ______________________________________________________.



  1. ______________________________________________________.





Step Four:  Create New Beliefs

When you discreate (destroy, eliminate, disappear) an old belief, what is created is space, a sense of openness, of possibility.   You then have the opportunity to install a new, more empowering belief in that space.  If you don’t fill the space, the old belief can sometimes creep back in. 

Look at belief #1 above.  What would you like to believe instead?   A good place to start is its opposite, but don’t stop there.  You can enhance the new belief so that it feels very supportive and positive in your body as well as your mind.

For example: if the old belief is “There’s something wrong with me,” you could replace it with, “There’s something right about me.”   That belief is better, but it’s not really empowering.  If you push it all the way up the scale of good feelings, you might come to: “I am the light of my soul. I shine with my unique and perfect light.” Can you feel the difference?  We’re going for that “WOW” feeling.

Here’s another example.  If you hold the old belief, “I am not loved,” you could replace it with “I am loved,” which is a good belief to have.  But feel what it would feel like to believe, “I deserve and receive love from every person in my life who is right for me.” Since you get to choose the beliefs you have, you might as well find the most empowering beliefs that you can express, own, and enjoy.

Here’s another way to think about it:  Since every belief produces a specific feeling & experience, ask yourself what experience you would LIKE to have about this topic.  Imagine having that feeling right now.  Now ask yourself what belief would create that feeling.

You’ll have an opportunity to try on your new beliefs inside your BeliefCloset, and you can make adjustments as necessary when you’re there.

When you work with a BeliefCloset Practitioner, he or she will work with you to shape the beliefs that will best serve you.   And don’t worry – you can always improve your beliefs later.  You’ve been living with those old beliefs for decades.  Creating new beliefs is a skill that improves with practice.
Take time now and write down the beliefs you would like to have in place of the three old limiting beliefs above. 

My three new beliefs:


  1. ______________________________________________________.



  1. ______________________________________________________.



  1. ______________________________________________________.
