Learning and understanding what core beliefs are and how they impact your life because you can step into the awareness of when your drift into old habits. It’s like your ego remembers a contract you have signed a long time ago but that you have since forgotten about and ego makes sure you remember that contract.

Discovering hidden core beliefs is like going on a scavenger hunt and can be an uncomfortable process as you notice the destructive behaviors your core belief persuades you to participate in.

But amazingly, we do have the ability to not only become aware of our belief system, but we can change it.


Daily journaling of 3 pages, 10 minutes or 30 minutes is a great place to start because you can go back and read them and notice a pattern of your thoughts and the belief you are holding onto. A belief of “I don’t matter” or “I am invisible” is something you have learned through experiences. Effective journaling will help you recognize that the core belief exists.

Thought Awareness

As you are writing in your journal or go about your day, take note of the things you are telling yourself. Paying attention to our inner dialogue helps us recognize when we are engaging our core belief.

A thought diary is a great way of exploring your thoughts and brings your core belief into the forefront so you can choose to change it.

  • A thought diary may include the event.

“My girlfriends went out for Karaoke but I wasn’t invited”

  • List all self-statements you are telling yourself about the situation and ask yourself what does it mean?
  • Beliefs – everything you believe about the situation
  • What does that mean?
    “My girlfriends don’t like me”
  • What does that mean?
    “There must be something wrong with me
  • What does that mean?
    “I am unlovable” this is the core belief
  • Write down words describing how you feel.


This process helps you shift through the layers until your reach the bottom of the barrel. And you are ready to identify where it originated from, the impact it has and how it feels.

I have created a core belief exercise worksheet to help you not only identify the core belief but also transform it.

The key will be to acknowledge when it comes in, tell it to stop and state the new core belief. Eventually, the old core belief will no longer be in your existence.
