If You Think It Is Your Beliefs That Are Controlling Things… Think Again!

by Houston Vetter - DocResults on February 16,


It is understandable to think that our beliefs control what goes on in our lives and what happens to us. I’m here to tell you that they don’t. Don’t get me wrong they are in the loop of what controls our lives and changing them, especially the core beliefs can be very, very useful in helping you have the life you want… BUT…

There is something in you that controls your beliefs and that is what is really influencing and controlling what happens in your life.

If You Think It Is Your Beliefs That Are Controlling Things… Think Again!

One of our experts Morty Lefkoe had this to say recently in an article

For many years I thought that virtually all of our behavior and feelings were caused by beliefs.  When thousands of clients found and eliminated the relevant beliefs, they saw spectacular behavioral and emotional changes.

After about 12 years, however, I had a client who eliminated scores of beliefs and made many significant changes in his life, but who couldn’t get rid of the anger he felt toward his mother, who was a partner in his construction business, when she gave him advice on how to run his company.

At that point I realized that beliefs weren’t the only cause of our feelings, that stimuli could be conditioned to cause emotions, such as being told what to do causing anger and not living up to expectations causing anxiety.

As time went on I realized that sometimes a sense of ourselves or a sense of life could result in feelings, as could conditioned expectations.  In other words, there were several sources of emotions in addition to beliefs, although beliefs still seemed to be the major source.

Occurrings are the major direct cause of feelings

I enjoy Morty’s concept of occuring which is the applying a past experience (i.e. belief) to the present moment and responding to the present moment from the past patterned response (i.e. a combination of beliefs that come from core beliefs and decisions of defeat which sets up patterns of reaction).

Morty goes on to say:

There I was for many years until about two years ago when I came upon the distinction between reality and how reality occurs for us, in other words, the meaning we give reality.  I soon realized that the feelings that seemed to be caused by beliefs were caused indirectly by beliefs, but directly by our occurrings.  Here’s an example: Assume a woman has the belief, Men are dangerous.  When she sees a man and feels fear, it seems as if the belief is causing the fear.  In fact, it isn’t.  The belief is responsible for the woman giving the man’s presence the meaning, at that moment, that she is in danger.  That immediate meaning, that “occurring,” is actually causing the feeling of fear.

It is true that the meaning she gives that particular man is determined primarily by the beliefs she already had about men in general, but the feeling is still caused by the occurring.

While I agree with Morty I see it a little bit differently which I think give you more power. While beliefs are one order of experience and occurrings are another order of experience they are both influenced by a higher level order of things.

What is the one thing that must be actual, not reality but actuality for you to be able to have beliefs and occurrings happening in your life? What is the one thing that happens whether or not you are aware of it and it determines and influences everything that happens in your life? What’s the one thing that once you are aware of it you can use it to make all the difference in your world?

The Difference That Makes The Difference

It is the 1st Forgotten Fundamental of an Exquisite Life and that is, “The Individual IS The Meaning Maker”. Without the ability to add meaning, nothing has any meaning to you. It is just what is. It is just what is happening, what is going on and it has no inherent meaning. In other words what is happening has no meaning UNTIL each Meaning Maker ADDS their meaning.

You, the individual, do not have to believe anything and yet whatever you do believe will become your perceived and felt reality. And the only way this is possible is the actuality that you, the individual are the Meaning Maker. As a child until you made the meaning that it is dangerous to play in the street your parents had to keep saying it and the moment you made the meaning (accepted your parents meaning as your own) they no longer had to warn you about playing in the street.

So what is controlling everything in your life, your beliefs, your occurrings, your experiences is the actuality that you are the Meaning Maker.


By exploring the 1st forgotten fundamental there are many possibilities you can come up with to really get your life back and create the life you want. From this place it is easy to change beliefs, remove the charge off of occurrings and began to respond to what you have given meaning to instead of reacting to it.

I would agree beliefs, emotions and choices are huge in dictating one’s results but I have also discovered in my spiritual healing practice that we are also at the affect of past lives and karma. The karma also includes choices made by our ancestors. When you release the cause from your memory bank and computer (your subconscious), your outer results can effortlessly change.

Dr. Joy,

An interesting thing that happens spiritually when you move up to the level of everything being energy then often the concept of past lives and karma doesn’t even come into the picture. Simply by aligning the energy or harmonizing it everything shifts.

That is not to say that one can’t use the morphic fields of past lives and karma to effect a change.

I once put my dogma and my karma in a room and let them fight it out. They both decided they were made up.

To Your Best,
