Deconstructing Belief

What is a belief, fundamentally?

Two main definitions of “belief” are given by Merriam Webster. First, a state or habit of mind in which trust or confidence is placed in some person or thing. For example, “I believe in you”. Second, something that is accepted, considered to be true, or held as an opinion, something believed. For example, political or religious beliefs, such as “I believe in God”. Notice that both of these definitions are about accepting something coming from outside oneself. Faith is often seen as a synonym for belief, but is that really the case? What is faith, fundamentally?

First, let’s talk about belief from a psychic’s perspective. I have personally witnessed that some people’s beliefs are actually alive: psychically they appear as conscious entities, or thought forms that are connected to conscious entities (such invisible entities are sometimes called “spirits” or “demons”). I have observed that, on occasion, a certain thought or idea can activate a thought form in a person that then calls in the presence of an entity. This entity then goes on to offer a range of suggestions to the person as to what to say, how to act, what else to think, and so on. It feeds on the energy the person releases in carrying out these thoughts and actions, as well as on the energy released by other people through their reactions to the first person’s words and actions.

In other words, if one believes a certain thing is true, there is likely something on the other end of that belief that benefits from the individual holding that belief. This is one reason why it is so hard for people to change beliefs or let go of beliefs: the entity on the other end that benefits from the beliefs doesn’t want those beliefs to stop being fed, because then it will be starved of energy and will eventually cease to exist.

Another example of beliefs presenting as cords to negative entities is from an experience I had in the early days of my shop. Two people came in and began asking me questions about psychic readings. As I spoke to them, I said something that triggered a belief in the mind of one of the people, which I perceived led to a cord that immediately invoked a conscious entity into the space where we were standing. The entity proceeded to block the person from receiving the potentially mind-expanding information that I was offering. It also suggested more concrete alternative explanations for what I was saying, essentially attacking my position in the person’s mind. It did this, presumably, because otherwise I might have convinced the person to change or drop the belief, which would have caused the entity to starve.

For another example, a couple came into the shop wearing clothing that indicated that they held a particular religious belief. When they realized that my shop was a spiritual place, a belief was activated in the mind of one of them—causing them to be afraid and quickly run away—along with an entity that stayed in the space long after the people had gone. The entity saw a potential opportunity to feed on my energy by attempting to make me feel as though I was doing something wrong. So it hung around for a time, projecting that energy at me while I held my ground by disagreeing with it, until eventually it gave up and left.

I could cite countless similar occurrences in which I perceived invisible entities. I know that they are real and that they are most definitely called in when beliefs are activated. I can clearly see that this entire consensus reality that we experience is built out of and held together by belief and all of humanity’s agreement with such belief. To change that reality, all we have to do is to change what we believe. But there are entities that benefit from us not doing that, and so they also discourage us from believing that changing reality could be as simple as changing a belief.

People generally have different beliefs about themselves which they unconsciously project outward in order to get others to believe those things about them too. When they do this, they are unknowingly recruiting others to help them feed the entities attached to themselves. Some people who are negatively inclined do this intentionally—they actually project an energy intended to create a specific belief in another. This is the essence of Black Magic.

As an example of this, when I was spiritually awakening, I encountered a popular spiritual teacher on YouTube who has hundreds of videos talking about spiritual concepts. They also hold live gatherings and meet with individuals on stage and supposedly help them with their personal issues. I actually met this individual in person and I was surprised by the energy this individual exudes in person in real time. They are not actually projecting an energy such as one would expect from what this person claims to be and to teach. On the contrary, this person is lying about themselves and what they actually do. What they say they do is use psychic ability to bring through information to help people, but they are actually a very skilled liar, not only plagiarizing the work of other individuals, but also projecting an energy of blindness so that they are not discovered to be a liar. They have a big, thick strong shield around their face that projects a very loud BEAUTIFUL so that that is all people can see. If you try to look beyond that, the negative entity that this person actually is will attack you psychically. I have seen testimony of people who have experienced psychic attack from this person, yet this person still holds a good measure of popularity. Judging from the following amassed by this person, it seems that their intention to create the belief that they are a positive spiritual teacher is very effective.

Just imagine if your beliefs were ideas created by someone else and then installed into you through teachings or repetitive treatment. And then you went on to deal with situations in your life according to those beliefs. Then your actions would not be based on the immediate situation at hand but on someone else’s program—someone who may not even be present. Who then would be benefitting from your actions? And who would be experiencing the consequences of your actions when those actions are not appropriate to the situation at hand?

Religions are responsible for most of the beliefs that serve as the foundation for the basic reality we experience on Earth. For example:

 

“I have to submit to authority in order to not be punished”


“I have to work hard or I won’t be deserving of abundance”


“I have to pay taxes or I will lose everything”


“Following societal norms is enough to make me a good person”

 

Then there are political beliefs, moral beliefs etc. Beliefs are creating the insane world we are witnessing. Question your beliefs.

What are you creating with your beliefs?

In Western society with its confused history of religious worldview giving way to an atheist-materialistic worldview, belief has become elevated to spiritual status, as if it is the most one can achieve in the quest to understand our allegedly meaningless reality. It has become identified with the foundation of one’s personality, as if who you are is defined by what you believe. Yet in truth, belief is not necessary for us to continue living our lives. What is the alternative to belief? Opening your heart, listening to your intuition, tuning your moral compass to your spirit. In practice, this means treating each new situation separately and letting your feelings and inner compass guide you to the right approach, be it action or nonaction—instead of relying on rules to tell you what to do or having a programmed reaction based on an adopted belief.

Let’s talk about the simplest everyday kinds of beliefs, the kinds that get us out of bed in morning, into the shower, into our clothes, into the kitchen, making breakfast, etc. Most of the time we operate based on practical beliefs that the world will work in the same way that it mostly always has, the way that we know supports us or that we know we can navigate. But is it necessary to actually hold those practical beliefs as beliefs in order to function? In fact, we only need to perform the actions that get us through life, we don’t actually need to believe that those actions will have any particular results. It is actually possible to keep going in life, even as we embrace the inevitable reality that we don’t know that the world will keep working the way we expect it to or that we even know where we are going. We can discard all our beliefs about how our actions will carry us through life, yet still continue to function in the usual way. What then is the basis for continuing to carry out those everyday actions?

When all belief has been removed, what is left is faith—faith that those actions will take us where we need to go, even acknowledging the truth that we don’t really know where that is. Previously, our beliefs told us what actions to take and what results we could expect from those actions. Now, without belief to tell us what to do, what remains is the faith that our actions don’t need to be perfectly selected and planned out for success, instead our intentions are enough to make our actions work for us. We cannot know that our actions will guarantee the desired results—so there was never any point in the first place in believing that they would. But we have faith that our actions—chosen and carried out with sincerity—will be enough to realize our intentions, perhaps on a higher level than we had in mind. In fact, this is how reality actually works. Intentional action operates in mysterious ways, sometimes indirectly in what can seem like magic, to align us with our higher desires—even though the specific details of the results may look completely different from what we expected. When that happens, our faith in our path is strengthened.

More effective than belief in yourself is faith in yourself. Believing in yourself means believing that you will succeed, that you will achieve the goals you set for yourself. But faith in yourself means trusting that you will become what you are meant to be, even if you fail at the limited goals you chose to try to achieve. It is faith that you can create your own reality, faith that the divine resides in you and in your ability to be that creator being. You don’t need to believe in other people’s ideas of who you are, what you are, what they say reality is all about. If you find that you need to believe in something, then by all means believe in yourself. But it is better still to have faith that you can create yourself, your experience and your world, in the best possible way, beyond any fixed beliefs you may have about what you are and what is possible.
