Should I uncover blocks before writing goals?
Question: Should I uncover the hidden beliefs that are blocking me before I write my affirmations about my goals?
Answer: It’s not necessary to uncover the conflicts or hidden beliefs before moving forward. Many times, all that is needed is the conscious mind’s focus and commitment to the goal to convince the subconscious to let go of its old beliefs.
However, if, no matter what you do consciously, the subconscious still sabotages you, you can actually create an affirmation stating the “hidden beliefs are now revealed.” Affirmations declaring that you now have clarity, that the old beliefs are now made apparent to the conscious mind, that you now know what has been creating the resistance, or statements that address your situation will start cleaning the window of your mind so you can see what’s going on.
Sometimes the belief is something that you’ve known just below conscious awareness, or it’s something that you’ve taken for granted. But you may be surprised what pops into your awareness concerning the hidden belief. Then you can write an affirmation to deal with that specific belief.
