In order to understand the why and the how of all this, you need to understand what beliefs are.

Beliefs are a strong conviction in a certain idea, in a certain concept.

Letโ€™s take an example๐Ÿ‘‡

It is said that drinking coffeeโ˜• at night (can) causes sleep disorder or prevents you from sleeping well or will keep you awake because of its caffeine.
For some, it’s even in the afternoon that its effect will start; for others, they can have their cup of coffee at 10h00pm and sleep at 11h00pm or even at midnight and they will sleep very well!

How is that possibleโ“

Why caffeine affected some and not othersโ“

Its a fact that caffeine is present in the coffee, so why there is no effect all the time? Or it works, or it doesn’t! It can not work sometimes and at other times, it doesn’t! So where is the change happeningโ“

In the persons themselves, itโ€™s obvious!


Now, physiologically speaking, we are all the same, we all have the same organs. Why the “response” of each person is differentโ“

Well… it lies only in the character.

And what makes the character of a personโ“

The “data”; he accumulates, right?

A character is something that is built and is always able to change.

(I know about genetics… about heredityโ€ฆ I knowโ€ฆ but scientists got it completely wrong๐Ÿ™. But itโ€™s fine, it is their experience and they need it. Anyway, this is another topicโ€ฆ)


The character of a person is โ€œbuiltโ€ from his country, his religion (if any), his family, his circle of friends, his school, his university, his environment, work, society, etcโ€ฆ PLUS all that he has experienced before: his past (parallel) lives.

So, with the power of his will and his mind, the person decides that caffeine will affect him or will not affect him, according to his character (to what he has โ€œaccumulatedโ€ as information).


Just by believing that it will or that it will not! Itโ€™s that simple! Just by giving it a meaning, a definition, a tag, a reason, an explanation.

Why he has chosen this meaning or the other oneโ“

Because it makes sense for him.

And why it makes sense for himโ“

Because it resonates with him.

It resonates with whatโ“

With what is true for him, with what is right, with what is correct, with what makes him feel good, safe, secure.

Now, in general, this specific kind of belief is not a โ€œroot beliefโ€.

A root belief is the very first belief which can remain alone and โ€œdo its workโ€, or can be related to other beliefs.

There is ALWAYS a root belief.

Now, when this root belief starts to have ramifications (other beliefs), this whole โ€œthingโ€ forms what is called a โ€œpatternโ€.

And, of course, when a belief should be changed, we should always go to the root belief, otherwise, there will be no change in anything, orโ€ฆ slight changes.

Sometimesโ€ฆ in some cases, a non-root belief can lead to the root one. Once found, and if we are ready, we change it.


Just by deciding to change it!

Change it = give it another definition. Thatโ€™s it! Period. It is that simple!

And if youโ€™re asking how to find the root belief (cuz youโ€™re asking this now, heheโ€ฆ), just by digging within yourself and asking the following question๐Ÿ‘‡

โ€œWhat am I believing in, to have this experience?โ€

The answer will come.

It might come swiftly or it might take some time. And this (the answer) depends on how honest and transparent you are with yourself when you asked the question, and on the power of your will at the moment the question was asked and on your readiness.

When you ask, you just โ€œthrow the questionโ€, so to speak. I mean: Just ask!ย Andโ€ฆ throw it!


Ask and donโ€™t mind (worry) about how and/or when the answer will come, AT ALL! AT ALL!

No expectations AT ALL!

no expectations


๐Ÿ‘‰ Your readiness: If you need to experience more of this โ€œthingโ€ (for your own growth -and this, your higher self holds the decision) or not. If youโ€™ve experienced โ€œenoughโ€ of it, the answer will come in any way, shape, or form; and if you need to experience more of it, you wonโ€™t get an answer.

Now, donโ€™t be discouraged by this, believe me, many, many beliefs are found! In fact, most of themโ€ฆ if not all.


Letโ€™s go back to our coffeeโ˜• timeโ€ฆ lol๐Ÿ˜€

Is this person aware that he has a belief system telling him that coffee wonโ€™t make him sleepโ“

Of course not.

Does this person understand why coffee affects him and does not affect othersโ“

Of course not.

Is this person doing this on purpose to himselfโ“

Of course not.

Though he likes coffeeโ˜•, and he would love to have one, but he canโ€™t, he wouldnโ€™t sleep well at nightโ€ฆ His belief is so anchored in him, that he feels it as โ€œpart of himโ€. He sees it as normal. He might blame his biological structure geneticsโ€ฆ heredityโ€ฆ his parentsโ€ฆ etcโ€ฆ or the coffee itself, lolโ€ฆ or maybe itโ€™s his destinyโ€ฆ maybe itโ€™s Godโ€™s willโ€ฆ

For him, it happens in an โ€œautomaticโ€ way, so to speak. This is how it isโ€ฆ Thatโ€™s my lifeโ€ฆ thatโ€™s meโ€ฆ Iโ€™m like thisโ€ฆ

Of course, Iโ€™m referring here to a (very) non – aware person.

To reply to your question โ€œBut still i don’t know why this.. how can someone escape to do what he/she is so passionate about….โ€

Itโ€™s the same for this passionate person. He definitely has a belief that is preventing him from acting on his passion.

Again, the same procedure/technique: he should ask himself โ€œWhat is preventing me from acting on my highest excitement? What am I believing in, to have this experience?โ€

A belief, a strong conviction in something, is an awesome tool for our growth.

If you want to do something. anythingโ€ฆ you need to be convinced in order to do it, or else, you wouldnโ€™t do it!

You canโ€™t do it by force, right?

You want to KNOW why you do it. You want to know WHY.

What will give you an answer, what will convince you, what will comfort you, what will make you feel safe while doing it, is a belief, and a strong one, of course.

The more โ€œstrongโ€, the more convincing it is, and so the more you will do what you have to do with ease. And you will have no problem at all while doing it, even if the whole planet๐ŸŒ is against you.

For you, it is true, it is correct.


About โ€œIย  am so keen to have this answer coz the same happens in my life… Still happening… I m so passionate about reading Spiritual stuff and publishing it at my own website but Somehow Always lack time to do this… And feel bad for not giving time to my passion.. and its not just my passion anymore… I feel it is the purpose of my life…
Purpose of my existence in this lifetime..โ€

Lack of timeโ€ฆ but this is not a problem. I do have the same problem tooโ€ฆ lol๐Ÿ˜‰.

We should find a compromise between family-work-our passion, there is no other way. Butโ€ฆ I think youโ€™re doing it and itโ€™s working perfectly fine, no? Remember, you have a family to take care of. You have your kidsโ€ฆ your husbandโ€ฆ cookingโ€ฆ your everyday tasks at homeโ€ฆ friendsโ€ฆ social lifeโ€ฆ personal time (time to stay alone, if you feel the need)โ€ฆ maybe doing some exerciseโ€ฆ

Unlessโ€ฆ you have a belief which says โ€œI should do it all the timeโ€ฆ full timeโ€ฆ alwaysโ€ฆ nonstopโ€ฆ the more I do it, the more Iโ€™ll have infoโ€ฆ and the more I have info, the more Iโ€™ll understand thingsโ€ฆ and this will help me in my growthโ€ฆ Cuz I want to thriveโ€ฆ I want to evolveโ€ฆ nowโ€ฆ sooner the betterโ€ฆ


When we act on our passion, it does not mean that we should devote all our time for it.

Wanting to devote all our time for it, if โ€œdecorticatedโ€, means: I donโ€™t see myself as powerful, I need to do moreโ€ฆ always moreโ€ฆ Iโ€™m never satisfiedโ€ฆ I donโ€™t know where and when to put limits for the timeโ€ฆ

Here is how acting on our passion, is โ€œrecommendedโ€ to be done: See what unfolds in front of us and act on our highest excitement.

bashar highest excitement quote

See what opportunities we have in front of us, and act accordingly. If two opportunities are presented, pick the one that excites you the most.

It goes without saying: regardless of its nature, how it looks like. Donโ€™t say โ€œItโ€™s sillyโ€ฆ Why now? How this could serve me? What people might sayโ€ฆโ€

Here is also another way: Wait to see what will unfold in front of us, what is going to be presented to us.

Waitโ€ฆ not really in the sense of โ€œwaitingโ€โ€ฆ kind of โ€œexpectingโ€ something to happenโ€ฆ no.

๐Ÿ‘‰Waiting in the sense of, being in a neutral state (not expecting) and see/discover what will be presented, what will be shown to us. What will happen, will happenโ€ฆ in this sense.

And, if possible, seeing each situation as a new opportunity, as a new discovery, as a new exploration, as a new โ€œchanceโ€ to changeโ€ฆ


Because, not doing so, would be expecting something to come upโ€ฆ and waiting for it. And if we are expecting somethingโ€ฆ it means we are relying on somethingโ€ฆ which is nothing but a belief.

While we know that what is recommended, is to not expect (no more relying on beliefs) and trust that anything which will show up can only be for our own good because itโ€™s coming from our higher source which has the big picture. And also, that this higher source can never harm itself (because I am part of it). So, how could it harm us?
(Higher source = soulโ€ฆ higher selfโ€ฆ Godโ€ฆ it doesnโ€™t matterโ€ฆ)

Youโ€™re saying itโ€™s not your passion anymore. Are you sure? Maybe it is still your passion, but BECAUSE you are not able to give it the NECESSARY time (that YOU have fixed, according to a certain standard, a certain belief), you preferred to change it.

ORโ€ฆ it is really not your passion anymore, which is perfectly okay. Passions are not always meant to last a whole life. They can last from a few seconds (doing something very exciting for just a few seconds or minutes) to a whole life.

In conclusion, beliefs are extremely important. They are the basis of everything. They are so important that our experiences are based on them. It is impossible to grow without them.


If the following question is raised โ€œWhere do beliefs come from?โ€

๐Ÿ‘‰Beliefs come from the One ๐Ÿ’ฏ

This One is our source.

It is experiencing/exploring/knowing itself THROUGH each one of us. Each one of us is like a โ€œportionโ€ of this One. Hence, we are linked and related. We feel as if we were disconnected, but this EXPERIENCE of disconnection is โ€œallowedโ€ on purpose in order to play our role โ€œproperlyโ€.

Once we REALLY trust this whole process, we understand that finally, we are the ones distributing these beliefs to ourselves and that it has NOT been โ€œimposedโ€ in any way by someone else. And if we have put them, we can change them.

If another question is raised โ€œWhat to do when I see someone โ€œstuckโ€ in his beliefs?โ€

I respect him because he is a creation of the One, as I am. I respect his โ€œpositionโ€ (where he is) in the spiritual path. I respect his pace. I donโ€™t blame him (and no one is to be blamed in whatsoever case, never, everโ€ฆ).

๐Ÿ‘‰ The best thing you can do is to be yourself.

When you act as who you really are, just by acting, just by being, just by your presence, you will โ€œemanateโ€, you will radiate certain energy, certain vibes (which he will catch, whether he is aware of them or not).

When you do this, you will present your ultimate, your pure, your best โ€œaspectโ€ of yourself.

He will โ€œtakeโ€ from it what he NEEDS to take. He can ONLY, RECEIVE what is he ABLE/READY to receive.

Remember, he has his own experiences and his own pace and his readiness does not come from him. Wanting or expecting anything else than this (only what he is able to take), is โ€œnot goodโ€ for him and neither for you.

Technically, doing this, at any degree, would in fact send a thought-form with its intention, which will stick to him (to one or more of his energetic bodies) AND to you. And this thought-form, having its own intelligence, will start to grow; and no one knows how it will endโ€ฆ (Of course, it will depend on the interaction between the nature of the seeds (โ€œpoints of intentionโ€) you sent and the seeds he has.

What you can do, is imagine him HOW YOU WANT HIM TO BE. Imagine him in the state you would like to see him in. This will do for both of you. It will serve you both.


๐Ÿ‘‰ We have been gifted with extreme power: the power of choice. We have the CHOICE to choose between โ€œpositiveโ€ and โ€œnegativeโ€ beliefs. We can DECIDE what to choose.

By deciding, we will see and experience the results of our choices. We will understand that WE are the choosers and that we are NOT the victims of anyone elseโ€™s choice. And the best way to fully grasp any choice is to experience it ourselves.

I hope this helped you, and thank you for asking. Thank you also for your presence.
PS: One dayโ€ฆ when you will fully grasp everythingโ€ฆ you will cry of joy when you will
see (experience) the HUGENESS of everything and its perfection. You will experience
who you are, who the โ€œothersโ€ are and you will be โ€œcompelledโ€ to see these โ€œothersโ€ as
you; and you will โ€œunderstandโ€ that you cannot NOT love them. You will love them as
you loved* yourself.

(โ€œLovedโ€ and not โ€œloveโ€, because you ALREADY have started to realize who you truly
are. This is self-realization)
And now, I will end with this๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘
