The Nature of Limiting Beliefs

Our conversations with Alana have spanned almost two decades.

We thought it might be fun to share some of our dialogues with Alana when we were first learning how to communicate fluently with Alana who is not an entity but the “frequency” of all of our hearts.

This is a timeless conversation Kirk shared with Alana back in the year 1997. He is curious about the nature of beliefs and how to assist people when limiting or negative beliefs are holding them back from creating their heart’s desires.

Insights for Changing Limiting Beliefs

Kirk VandenBerghe: Alana, can you provide some insight on how to assist people in changing beliefs that no longer serve them?

Alana: Teach your clients a concept of belief as a doorway.

Once a person can hold the picture of a door in their mind and sense the door as you would a belief, they will be able to open it and see what is inside the basis of their beliefs.

If they are slow to grasp the concept, then teach or help them realize they have the key to this door which acts as a symbol for unlocking and perceiving the belief they are holding. Mysteriously, when they are ready enough to open the door, the door will dissolve or open and provide insight.

The Power of Belief

Kirk: Some beliefs people have formed hold them back, while others help them grow and learn. Can you say more about this?

Alana: There are many different approaches to assist a person in belief realization. Some beliefs are hard to examine, hard to grasp the roots that lead them to be. A person may feel they hold hurtful thoughts. Let’s discuss the nature of beliefs to better understand the intention they hold.

Know all beliefs are essentially purposeful. They ignite emotions and emotional responses that allow people to learn themselves and about others.

When a person holds a belief that keeps them locked within themselves—what you term as limiting—they are creating a path to develop understanding of why others share the same beliefs they do. Usefulness is present because this creates a co-creative type of understanding. We are not judging if the belief is expanding or limiting, just that it creates connection.

Having understanding requires opening to a level of consciousness that has the intent to develop compassion. Without understanding and compassion, we would not recognize our connection. When a belief is imprinted internally then it can change and take a new form.

When a belief is resisted it will mirror back again and again and again. This is why the patterns within the universe of a belief that has rippled through the consciousness of each individual soul who has expressed and then accepted it
through forgiveness can choose to alter (elevate) to a new experience. A belief can collectively transform humanity. A belief offers an individual or humanity as a whole to gain experience and learn into possibility.

Belief Systems Expand Consciousness

Kirk: So you are saying we have our personal beliefs then we have cultural and even global beliefs we all share?

Alana: Yes! And beliefs catch on, and become morphic fields that hold information. Emotional responses are a beautiful fuel that is charged by beliefs.

An emotion is a beautiful expression. When fear charges a belief—which stems from a fear of separation—it affects the chakra alignment of the individual and reduces or inhibits the flow of love.

Fear does have its purpose. It keeps those bonded in belief, and when as a whole we can create that bond without fear as the connector then we will inherit the ability to expand our consciousness to attain more knowledge of our inherit mostly, untapped nature. This will help us collectively, raise our belief system as a whole to new heights.

Belief and Compassion

Kirk: Then on a more vast scale beliefs can be tools of our consciousness that propel us to learn and elevate our awareness.

Alana: Indeed, Kirk. So this is why we can not judge a person for holding a limiting belief, because it is what helps us create doorways. In personal development work, ask each individual to use the key that you offer them to find and eventually the the doorway will unlock and dissolve, and lack will be the first to go.

If you traced all belief that is limiting, or hurtful—such as that of victim—or grounded in not enough . . . that of pain, that of fear . . . I can go on and on. If you traced these fear-based beliefs back to their initial beginning they will connect to a belief in lack, and fear to express due to preconceived projected consequences. Compassion allows us to move beyond identifying with a belief as who we are, but rather a doorway we have created for the purpose of learning.

All emotional feelings are valid. Feeling that resonates within are there for a reason. The reason for the feeling or emotion is not to be judged, just expressed safely and it can transform because as a species we learn. This is why logic is not really our dominate state. It assists, but when it judges it keeps us from allowing our beliefs to continue expanding to embrace greater possibility. Logic is just an aid that is based on our minds ability to compare and reason.

Channeled Insights on the Nature of Intention

When you look up the root of the word “intention” in the dictionary you find:

intend: have (a course of action) as one’s purpose or objective; plan.

Building on that definition you can now describe intention (noun) as: a thing intended as an aim or plan; the action or fact of  intending (verb).

With this description you can gain an idea of what “your intention” in any given situation may communicate, but the dictionary definition falls short in conveying the essence of what an intention does when fueled by the deep seated nature within you that makes an intention such a powerful presence.

So now let’s ask: Why is intention so powerful when it comes to the laws of manifestation and the ability to funnel energy to transform our lives?

The Essence of Intention

One day we had the opportunity for Kirk to chat with Alana on the topic of manifestation. During the discourse we were surprised to receive an in-depth answer from the very vibration, frequency, or “essence of intention.” For the sake of giving the voice that shared the following information a personal name, it presented itself as “Ra.”

Interpreting channeled information is a lot like translating a foreign language until skill is developed between the spokesperson who is conveying, and that which is imparting the information. Often the communicated words seem to speak more to an intuitive part of us that receives insights like they were “thought packets,” dense packets of information that is powerfully packed within a few words.

Swirl of SmokeUnraveling and understanding the deeper meaning of the words in each thought packet requires expanding your perceptions to grasp the meaning beyond the mind’s logical interpretation. As you read the following dialogue it is best to take a few moments, as you would prior to meditating, so your inner ear is open to receiving more detail.

In the beginning of the communications from Ra, Ra is describing the state of channeling, and Ra goes on to describe the essence of the nature of intention and the connection between the human heart and mind.

The Trance State of Channeling

Kirk: Can you describe what is happening during the deep trance state that makes it possible to actually talk with non visible entities and universal frequencies, such as collective heart, or in this case the “essence of intention?”

Ra: The trance state that is entered when one moves into the state you refer to as “getting big”—an expanded consciousness state where the body feels it loses the definition from its surroundings—is when consciousness expands past the sole attention of the body and merges with a different dimension for whatever purpose the intention of your seeking has in that moment. You can consciously intend, or your higher nature may be doing the intending.

When this happens, consciousness may seem detached from the body, not the soul detached from the body. In this state, one accesses an ageless state not restricted by time and space as long as one is connected to the soul. This is similar to the state one enters prior to death of the body, however the intention here is not to create a death transition. The point here is that the being who is conveying moves into an ageless space as their conscious perceptions move one’s focus from the space-time continuum of their physical environment.

Soul gives life. Attachment gives age. Dimension shifting is how we create healing and often instantaneous healing that can ripple back into the physical. A thought energizes or creates intention, and intention can shift consciousness to access a shape shifting ability by moving one’s consciousness into vastness—vastness as a noun—or a state of getting big to access or connect and thus blend with a part of one’s multi-dimensional being. We can go further to say we can also blend with the essence of all that is when holding this expanded intention of conveying.

The Essence of Light & Dark

Kirk: From your expanded observation can you describe how this occurs?

Ra: One finds the formula for creating this state of being by looking into oneself, ardently—again, ardently as state of being—with the heart in full motion. The rhythm is attained to unlock the door to all that is witnessing its light or intention. The heart Chakra is open or expecting to receive—again a state of being not doing.

All that is as thought, light is intention. That is why thought contains darkness. That which is empty or thought, becomes full or light—meaning it is filled by intention—and heart gives it life. And life is best served in full thought and in full light by joy, laughter, and delight because those states are experienced in the now, which leads to being full of oneself or big in consciousness.

When one creates this state of being or is able to move consciousness into different dimensions to experience one’s vastness, fullness, emptiness, or whatever will serve the thought (emptiness), until the light (intention) directs the self’s affairs, agendas, desires, experiences, focus, teaching, action, reaction, creation, or intention of these when consciously directed. One is thus creating their reality rather it be consciously, or subconsciously—or perhaps it is directed through limitation or fullness depending upon the blending of thought, intention, and heart!

Fueling Intention with Attention

Kirk: Thank you. As the frequency of intention, do you have a message you would like to share with humanity?

Ra: Open the gates to other realms. Learn to heal oneself by expanding awareness into vaster dimensions so you may alter past, alter future probabilities and possibilities to create the eternal now within itself.  Now within itself is when one is truly home, it happens only once and that is all that it can be for that is what is limitless and always present.

Ra as intention brings you the strength to arrange creation, and heart will guide your light so that your purpose shall be full of one’s divinity shining like the moon reflecting the sun’s intent to go on to stir the qualities that only heart can bring into blossom. The moon reflects the sun as our reality reflects our intention, and heart is what creates the fullness.

Nature creates the wind, the water, and the air to bring knowingness of feeling to that which man creates with nature’s feelers. We shape material so that we may feel our creations.

And now it is time to refrain (rejoice) the feelers (the elements) and direct them with light (intention) so that man may celebrate the feeler’s freedom to feel fully and without fear. But to experience and feel the loyalties and wholeness that the wind, the water, that all the elements bring within our emotions to bestow heart’s full tone. Nature watches intently to serve her gifts whenever one’s intent chooses to feel full. Joy-filled emotions direct nature to fill oneself with full light while the full and rich void, or darkness, eagerly awaits instruction.

Rejoice in the elements of being human in full thought, full light, full love, knowing oneself infinitely to bring the qualities of Heaven to Earth as you ardently look within oneself to discover the magic of creation.

Top Spirituality Book Translated into 9 Languages: Love Without End by Glenda Green

Love Without End written by Glenda Green

Love Without End, Jesus Speaks is a true story and personal account of Glenda Green’s encounters and “conversations” with Jesus.

And although one would automatically think that this is a religious book it is not. This book, Love Without End, is a spiritual book that teaches the reader many of the “secrets” of life without any religious affiliations.

In this one of a kind, fifteen chapter, 410 page book, Green relates to her readers the conversations as well as revelations that were revealed to her during this time with Jesus. In fact, the book answers more than 400 questions, or more precise Love Without End relays Jesus’ answers to more than 400 often asked, rarely answered questions.

From Priest to Skeptics Love Without End is a Treasure

From priests to skeptics and everyone in between the reviews for Love Without End are extraordinary.

Citing Green’s honesty, clear, easy going account of her four month visit with Jesus beginning in 1992 as a huge draw, Love Without End is one of the most popular, well regarded spiritual books of all time.

This book is used in several university classes, cited by numerous spiritual leaders in their talks as well as their own books by the hundreds. In fact, Love Without End is one of the most quoted books in modern spiritual literature.

Love Without End provides information that bridges thousands of years. The messages that Jesus sends through this visit with Green (originally intended for Green also an accomplished artist to paint his portrait) has valuable insight and lessons that can be applied to daily life in our world here and now.

And although it may be a little difficult to believe or leave you questioning if this four month visit from Jesus (or Jeshua as it is pronounced in his native tongue) is real, Green suggests that despite your doubts you can (and almost undoubtedly will) come to learn and grow from the words you read within the pages of Love Without End.

Most feel this book can change your perspective on life, expand your consciousness and intuitive listening abilities, open your heart, while also acting as a spiritual guide book.

An Open is All You Need for Love Without End

Green is well prepared for skeptics and explains that many of the facts we now accept without question originally came into the open through fictitious stories. Although Green claims this is in no way fictitious the outcome is the same; the ability to gain invaluable insight into yourself, your life, and many of the deeper questions that plague our world by simply reading Love Without End.

This latest addition contains an additional eighty-eight pages that were not part of the previous twenty seven editions. In total there are now twenty eight editions of Love Without End not including the ones in nine languages other than English. This book is a phenomenon.

This book is a wealth of spiritual information that it’s hard to imagine Green could have ‘dreamed up’ on her own. Love Without End answers many of the questions we all have wondered (and been left with unanswered) from our earlier religious experiences.  It is an intense read and I often found myself only able to read a few pages or so before having to put it down and savor what I had just read or more accurately absorbed.

Meet Glenda Green: Painter, Spiritual Teacher, and Author

Green has her background in contemporary spirituality.

She teaches this and much of what she does teach comes from her continued relationship with Jesus. Her teachings are based on universal beliefs rather than affiliated with any religion.

In addition to being a world renowned spiritual leader Green is also an internationally famous and beloved artists. She even boasts paintings displayed in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C.

I encourage all interested in finding answers, or just another perspective on life and pure love to read Love Without End. Begin with an open mind, question if you must, but just keep reading and in the end I really think you’ll be glad that you did.

Dealing with Self Judgment? A Meditation for Moving Into a Resourceful and Non Judgmental State

We are often told it is not good to judge others.

The guilt or shame we feel when we do can turn into negative self judgment.

We can get caught in a mental loop where we begin judging our judgments.

This state can create an emotional dam causing mental reactions that keeps us from accessing a creative state of authenticity where we have access to our inner wisdom and guidance.

The following self guided meditation can be read aloud and recorded. Be sure to include pauses between the paragraphs for reflection. Use The Heart Meditation as a guided meditation to help create a healthy emotional state where judgment transforms into a much more creative awareness: discernment.

Heart Meditation

Heart MeditationLay down or sit quietly with your hands on your heart.

Allow whatever feelings you have to rise to fuller consciousness.

Whatever your feelings are, allow yourself to have them and to just be with them.

Allow whatever is present to be present.

Take a few moments to feel them fully and allow your feelings and emotions to rise to the surface.

As you move into this feeling state remind yourself you are safe to feel what is within you, for what is within you is there to guide you. Your feelings are always valid. Your feelings hold keys to open doors that will free you from fear and self-limitation.

Connect with Your Breath

Windy FieldLike the wind blows across an open meadow and bends the seeding tassels of grass, take a moment to connect with the movement of your breath.

Now, as you inhale, allow your breath to open and feel it move deeper and deeper within your body.

As you inhale deeper with each breathe imagine you are also breathing in a beautiful radiating light.

Know this comforting light holds useful information that you will soon realize along with the essence of compassion.

Compassion for all that you are currently feeling and have experienced in the past.

Breathe in Light and Information

Radiant LightThis benevolent and comforting light is relaxing to your emotions. As you gently and deeply breathe in light and compassion you are beginning to feel a sense of tolerance and deep relaxation.

This state is connecting with your innate senses and your intuition. You are simply gaining greater clarity as this light filled information guides you to a practice of self-care.

Now you are able to remember multiple ways to create and invite self-love. You remember what it is like to nurture and love yourself just as you would any loyal and trusted friend.

The safety you feel is creating a space that allows old limiting thoughts or beliefs to float freely away from your essence…floating and rising into the distance.

Take a moment now to sense a growing new found freedom that can change your reality for the better.

Find a Magical Key

A Key to WisdomThis freedom has the ability to allow judgments to transform into discernments. Any reactions to the judgments you have held onto in the past are presenting keys that unlock a door where discernments are easily realized.

Simple ways to self nurture that help you create life with ease and magic easily emerge from your inner light.

With your breathe, you inhale a deep sense of self-love and any left over limiting judgments easily release from your physical body.

  • You easily release fears from the past.
  • Your easily let go of any fear of the future.
  • Fear you have held onto for lifetimes no longer makes sense to hold and dissipates until it is gone.

Guided by light, you now know all fear that you have held and stored has gently left and moved beyond your field creating space for new realizations.

You are now able to discern your deep innate inner needs and the values you hold dear to your heart.

Visit A Moment in Time

A moment in timeIn the minutes, hours, and days ahead the essence of your purpose will shine brighter.

Imagine a moment in time where you are free to do whatever you please while trusting the guidance of your  inner self. In this moment you realize your purpose both in your inner and outer world.

It is delightful to know that whatever excites you and allows you to thrive is possible.

Take a few moments and feel and sense what you might do, how you might be, and what you may have as you fully express authenticity and divine purpose.

Notice how all of your senses are involved. One by one your senses easily bring an image to focus that reveals your full, sparkling, light-filled essence. This is an aspect of who you really are!

Now trust that at any given future moment you can express from this newly realized light filled essence.

Spend time and look at yourself. Imagine your light filled essence as it speaks to you in a clear voice. What might it say? What words might flow from your true love-filled self.

Notice the words and how they guide you to a deep understanding of your unique individuality, your loving purpose, and why you choose to be in this world at this time in your life.

Experience Clarity

Creating ClarityA sense of clarity allows you to learn from situations you have experienced in this life. You can easily find additional keys as you need them to open any closed doors that appear in your future. Whenever a door appears that is closed as you open it you are able to connect with your personal power. Your keys always help you open doors to abundance, and help you realize new and powerful possibilities.

Now it is time to draw all you have realized, discovered, and remembered while on this journey into your heart. You know you can trust your mind’s ability to grasp this information and use it in the most useful ways.

This heart and mind wisdom will always instinctively know how to balance and remain fully accessible. You’re a beautiful blend of your higher and true self and the person you feel yourself to be.

Pause for a moment or two. Allow your heart to recognize the desire of your mind that wants to help you learn and discover what is most important.

Take another moment or two and pause again. Witness as your mind realizes the wisdom of your heart and its ability to guide you to what you value most…what is most dear to your authentic nature.

Embrace Heart and Mind Harmony

Moving into the heartNow take another moment to experience again your heart and mind in harmony.

As you inhale and exhale your breathe gently assists you to awaken present and clear minded from this compassionate and light filled state.  You awaken refreshed and alert, ready to continue your day.

It is comforting to know at any time you wish your body and senses will lovingly help you remember the knowledge gained during this state of expanded awareness.

Now, slowly count from five to one.

Five: You feel the connection to your body and the room where you are laying of sitting.

Four: The outside world is more apparent as your attention moves to your surroundings.

Three: You gently open your eyes and look around you.

Two: With mental clarity, trust, and courage you are now able to discern what is your highest and best choice in any given moment.

One: You are now fully awake, aware, and ready to go about your day with clarity, peace of mind, and a happy heart.

Healing From the Influence of Negative People

Question for Alana: Hi Alana, I’ve always been aware of spirit in my life and at one point was very well attuned to my guides and was able to communicate freely.

Unfortunately I came across a very negative person who thought that what I was doing was “wrong” and disapproved of this path.

This person was in a position of great authority over me and sadly was a big influence on me, and I agreed to stop. I rejected the gifts that I had, refused to communicate with my guides and cut off from this side of who I was.

Finally, I broke free from this person and began a long process of healing that had taken many years. I feel drawn to returning to what I had before but don’t seem to be able to do this anymore.

I am so sorry and ashamed of rejecting the gifts, and of rejecting my wonderful guide, and I don’t know how to tune myself in any more, and don’t know how to trust myself.

Do you have any advice or guidance? I found your website very helpful.

blue flowerAlana’s Answer: Greetings Dear One, thank you so much for your heart felt message.

Lessons in life often come to us through the experiences of contrast.

There are many gems within your message that will unfold. They will offer you a deepening of your internal connection to your expanded nature and your spiritual self. Let’s take a walk together so you may discover how your experiences can serve you and assist in healing your heavy heart.

When Those of Power Disapprove

Every day we experience hierarchy in some fashion. Whether it is a boss at one’s place of employment, or a teacher at school, a religious figurehead, or even a family member. In some cultures there are cast systems, and in others we are taught that if we put our needs first we are selfish.  So how is it we give other’s power over us? Most would say it is woven into the fabric of our cultures; or authority has to be present to keep some type of order.

That is all fine and good, but the key to recognize is that when we view each other as separate we then really lose our sense of self. (seems contradictory, doesn’t it?) When we can heal this sense of separation we can respect others and in turn remain clear of our own true power center, which is our connection with heart, grace, and the infinite wisdom that lies within the core we all share. We we understand this,  separation of self dissolves and a sense of powerlessness goes with it.

The process of recognizing who we truly are is often a remembrance that resurfaces after we forget. If we hold ourselves with the same type of judgement that we felt we received from those we once thought had greater powers than we did then we are just mirroring back to us the same dynamic and story. So it is so very important to release shame and guilt and grasp that a disconnection from our power may just be the necessary fuel for our eternal being to powerfully recognize our authentic and vital nature.

How Do I Learn To Trust

yellow flowerLearning to trust is a natural instinct when we learn how to sharpen our senses. I am not just talking about our five senses, but our extended senses as well that reach into the non visible aspects of our being. Trust comes from the reconnection to our power center which can easily be remembered through conscious practice.

Recognize doubt can be a tool to help us learn how to trust, for doubt brings with it questions so we may learn to listen.

Most people have at least one sense that is more predominate. So this is the place to begin listening. For example, the gut level feeling we get when we know we should turn right or left when we come to a stop sign and are lost. Or the feeling we get when we know someone wants to hear from us. Learning to trust again starts with listening to whatever sense one feels is the most predominate and honoring the message we receive. Building trust comes through exercising our intuition. Then what follows is personal transformation as we become clearer channels for our values, needs, and authentic natures that wish to guide us.

If Something Is Done Once By Only One Person It Can Be Done Again

When we feel like we have lost a thing, a presence, or a connection it still exists within the field of implicate order. Intention is a powerful resource that shapes matter and presents itself as patterns of thought, expression, and even material manifestations. The first step to take to rekindle your connection with your guides is to ask for it to be so. Then expect to receive and look for subtle signs. Then build on those subtle signs and ask that the connection become more clear and essential. Here is a beautiful mantra!

Divine Love, Light, and Energy, flow through me and bring forth that which is essential for the highest good of all.

A beautiful mantra such as this embraces connection while also staying focused and free from distraction. This mantra embraces the wisdom of all and what is truly divine. Expecting to receive is a wonderful message to give the universe for it reinforces the natural flow of giving and receiving. It offers a consciousness path to find what may have not been obvious to one’s previous perceptions.

Woven in words such as this are also sparks of remembrance. When we point our attention to the home within our hearts we can recognize we have always been full even when our minds have been distracted. So now you can see that the experience you had really can serve as a gift. If your intuitive connection was strong, the veil can be lifted again. Just practice, be patient, and set aside any self judgment because the big picture is always there and always will be.

Alana with the help of Kirk and Sandy has created a beautiful intuition course that will help you reawaken your connection.
