  2. My biggie is “I am not good enough”. This belief has dominated my life, and I am now 74. After doing the process, it no longer affected me. About time too, as I wish to start my healing practice again. So far I feel quite positive about re-starting my career. I am now working on belief 8, and I feel inspired already. I checked by muscle testing, and about a week now The belief I am not good enough has disappeared for good. Thank you Morty

    I have been eliminated 1 belief a day I’m on # 6. I did do the who am l session which I thought was very impacting. I have alway been one to watch what I say before speaking so therefore limits me from speaking. good news is that yesterday i spoke withmy boss and did it freely and effortless. I will keep you updated.

      Congratulations. Please keep me informed.

      Love, Morty

  4. Hi Morty,
    Busted all the beliefs and all the additional exercises but still feel anxiety when public speaking or holding meetings with big bosses. I think it is very therapeutic and helps you get to the bottom of your childhood issues, but my anxiety is work related and has only come about over the past few years due to stress. So do I still have a nagging belief that is not on your list or has the chemical balance in my brain changed me forever ?

    1. Morty Lefkoe says:

      Hi Ralph,

      I can’t tell from your note. If the anxiety just started a few years ago, then you might have additional recntly-formed beliefs that are still causing your anxiety.

      A session(s) with a trained Certified LM facilitator could help you identify and eliminate a couple additional beliefs.

      Love, Morty

  5. Morty, if I am wondering and worrying if I am doing the program right, what belief is that? I have completed the first five beliefs in natural confidence.

  6. Hi Morty

    I tried the failure buster and that felt like it worked. Then I tried the “I’m not good enough’ buster and that didn’t.

    I’m adopted and wasn’t conscious that I felt ‘not good enough’ til I hit 40. I’m now 47 and feel this less…but it’s still there despite a lot of self development work . I came across your website in Nancy Verrier’s book on adoption.

    What advice would you give me?

    Thanks simon

  7. Dear Morty,
    my mother language is German and I am so grateful that I finally found a solution to get rid of the belief “I am not good enough”. I really was astounded in the end, that it was really gone. But the next day, as I went forward to “I am not important”, I realized that over this lies a much stronger belief, something like: My lesson to learn in this incarnation is to experience how it feels completely lost, with no family, friends, without education (therefore impecunious), any chance in the outer world to come out off the drama EXCEPT to make it all alone, because I have to balance karma. I know that if you ask, there comes a light and I experience that in amazing ways, so that I am very hopeful to achieve my goals (I did the “Passion Test” before I came to you, got a link to “Happy for no reason” and a recommendation from Marcy to your site). I go now forward thinking my karma should be balanced all I have experienced and now it’s time for a change: I deserve a nice future, because I want to give and help to make the world a better place with equal opportunities for all. I know out there are places where I am welcome and people who like me.
    Every day I meditate in order to bring heart and mind in alignment (centering excercise: feel the connection to earth and heaven in the heart) what gives me massive support.

  8. Dear Morty,
    I have just completed the 19 beliefs and 4 conditionings – woohoo!!
    I have always struggled with my emotional and physical health, and for 10 years I have been on a mission to heal myself from my childhood experience of feeling unloved. Your work is brilliant! It is making a massive difference to me and I came across it when I was losing all hope of change. It’s a life-saver!
    Wishing you and your family all the very best for the period of treatment you are entering. May it be as successful as your wonderful work!
    Rebecca xxx

  9. Thank you Morty,
    I went through all the 19 beliefs and 4 conditionings and I feel very light. Some of the beliefs were over the chart of a scale of 1-10 and at the end there were all zero.I feel that my self esteem is much better and it can only get better and better. Thank you. thank you. I feel at peace with myself. PEACE. Chipo

  10. Is it possible to create a belief like “I’m not good enough for a relationship” or one even more specific like “I’m not good enough for my boyfriend”? or other beliefs that I think cause me jealously like “I’m not good enough to earn my boyfriend’s attention”

    At first I thought that I had relearned the belief “I’m not good enough” but after going through the video again I think that that belief is unlearned but other similar beliefs are still there.

  11. The power of suggestion, positive thinking all comes into play with your technique… but it’s also a rational understanding of how our childhood shapes us and a good way to change all that. I enjoyed your video and found it helpful. However, I find myself slightly resisting only because I worry I might get lost. Who am I? I’m so used to being the sarcastic nay sayer (blaming the world for my problems) that I fear I won’t recognize myself! Anyone else face this?

    1. Mark, even though I don’t share the same thought, I can see what you mean. Would it help to your perspective? Instead of worrying that you might not recognise yourself if you’re no longer your sarcastic self, why not rejoice in the opportunity to improve your life. You must have wanted to change your limiting beliefs in order to be doing Morty’s videos. I myself feel so empowered by being reminded that: You create your beliefs and your beliefs determine your life! However… you are ‘resisting’, so I don’t think you were successful in eliminating the belief. I’d do the exercise again and see if you notice a shift. Good luck!

  12. Just listened to the free replay. I must say…I believe that was right up my ally. 🙂 Morty, do you have any idea what can of worms you opened up? Although I understood this concept, your method of walking me through it is making me question every limiting belief I have.

    I’ll definitely have to let my friends know about this method. Simply brilliant.

    Thanks a bunch,

    1. Morty Lefkoe says:

      Hi Mark,

      You aren’t really your negative thoughts or your positive thoughts. You are the creator of both.

      You won’t get lost. Promise. over 150,000 have done this.

  13. I’ve been exploring for a little for any high quality articles or weblog posts on this kind of house .
    Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this website.
    Reading this information So i’m happy to exhibit that I have an
    incredibly excellent uncanny feeling I found out exactly what I needed.

    I most definitely will make sure to don?t disregard this web site
    and give it a look regularly.

  14. Hi Morty,
    I am having some trouble with the beliefs, People aren’t interested in what I have to say, What I have to say isn’t important, and It’s dangerous for people to put their attention on me. As I went through the videos I noticed that I couldn’t find a source for the belief that occurred with me parents, although I think that out of all the beliefs, these three are the most true for me. From what I can remember, my parents gave me a lot of attention as a child and cared for me well. I think I learned these beliefs in elementary school through my interactions with my peers. I was bullied through elementary school and middle school which caused me to still feel as if I was being bullied during high school. How should I approach eliminating these beliefs through your videos?

  15. I feel this exercise is very similar to cognitive behavioral therapy. It is replacing a irrational belief with a rational belief. I am happy to say that It woks. Thanks

  16. morty,
    your videos are great.. do you have a video to help me break my belief that ‘I don’t look good enough’? that would really help!

    1. Morty Lefkoe says:

      Hi Brenda,

      No, we don’t have a video to help you eliminate that belief but you could learn how to eliminate beliefs yourself. For information about our training programs please check out http://lefkoeuniversity.com/offer

      Or you can have a session with one of our Certified Lefkoe Method Facilitators who could help you eliminate a few beliefs in a one-hour phone or Skype session. For more information please call us at 415-884-0552.

      Love, Morty

  17. Guys, firstly, I am finding the videos very useful at eliminating beliefs. However, the repetition is killing me and I’m finding it hard to concentrate!!! do you have any tips on how I can get through the next 11 beliefs without going crazy?! I’m on number 8 now and am trying my best to listen to the broken record.. or is that part of the ‘training?’ I am very keen on working through this information so please help if you have any advise.

    1. Morty Lefkoe says:

      Hi Prinul,

      Sorry the repetition is making it so hard for you to concentrate.

      There is a technique to eliminate beliefs permanently and it consists of asking certain questions and helping people to find certain answers. You have to do that if you want to eliminate one belief or 100 beliefs. Unfortunately the process for eliminating a belief doesn’t change after you’ve eliminated the first seven.

      Any technique, be it brushing your teeth, making toast, driving a car, etc. has to be repeated to produce the desired result.

      Some people are able to eliminate 10 beliefs in a day and are not bothered by the repetition. Others do only one belief a day because they are. Do whatever works for you.

      Love, Morty

      1. hey prinul, i’m a college student and i can’t afford morty’s dvd yet , so can you please send me some of your dvd’s please?

  18. Dear Morty,

    I stumbled across your website and honestly didn’t expect much at all. Having watched the video, I must say that I do feel different and much more positive. I would like to thank you for making a difference in my life today.

    Limiting beliefs are so utterly debilitating as you know and it is uplifting to experience any shift no matter how large or small.

    I also liked your presentation. It was a no nonsense, practical approach and it was appreciated.

    I wish you well on your journey and I hope that more and more people get to experience your technique. I will most certainly be spreading the word.

    Kind regards,

  19. The body reacts in the same way for all stressors, real and
    imagined. It is very important to control your thoughts, because your
    strength, determination and ability to win over anxiety can only let you overcome it.

    Meditation and visualization techniques take on many different forms.

  20. Hi Monty,
    I love your work, and it has helped me to the extent the more I use your methods, the more interested in them I become both academically and creatively. The eliminating belief process is great, but because you’re using the internet and therefore are slightly at the mercy of words and the odd picture, it attaints a 2d nature. I was wondering, especially with the ‘create your life’ part that there could be a way of developing it to include senses of taste and smell?

    For example, you could tell people to try something along the lines of a simple recipe for brownies; you tell them what the brownies will taste like before they taste them, (the first way of experiencing something), they then order the brownie from your web sight (ok, slightly squidgy in the post but you get the drift of it,) they then eat the brownie, the second way of experiencing it. Lastly they are given the brownie recipe to make, the third way of experiencing it.

    This may seem a little bit of a strange idea, but it comes from a conversation I had with a little buddhist monk about why they burn insence. He said it’s because smell is invisible, like our feelings, and therefore it would be strange to offer something that is visible when trying to convey a message that is in itself invisible (due to it’s emotional content).

    So yes, quite random but I thought I would post this anyway as I think your work is great, but like anything is always a process that can be added to.

  21. Morty,
    I think your work is brilliant, practical, and it addresses deeply held beliefs. One of mine has been the “not good enough.” I loved your simple way of having people come to expereince themselves as the creator of their own beliefs and thereofre the creator. THANK YOU for your generosity! Carol

  22. Thank you.

    The way that worked was quite intriguing, and it helped my mind think down a path I hadn’t traveled before. I have helped myself get over anger issues and other limiting behavior by introspection but I usually had to catch the experience right at the trigger level a couple of times, as it was beginning to form. This is the first time I’ve experienced a planned activation of a behavior issue. I know it was a belief but it produces limiting behavior.
    Oh, just thank you.

  23. Hi Morty,
    in one of your videos you talk about how the child created these beliefs by looking at the behaviour of the parents. With children being intrinsically good, and not having any sense of judgement unless taught by those around, I have a hard time understanding how the child is able to create such a belief.

    1. Hi Rosalind,

      A child seems to unconsciously ask himself: Why are mom and dad never round when I want them? And he comes up with a logical answer: I’m not important.

      That is the answer most children seem to give to that scenario. And most children seem to conclude I’m not good enough when they don’t do what mom and dad want and they are angry or annoyed.

      It’s not so much a judgment as the meaning children give their parent’s behavior.

      I can’t explain why most children seem to form such beliefs in such situations, but we’ve discovered from literally thousands of clients that they do.

      Love, Morty

  24. Morty, You based all this on childhood. I’m 63 and this has happenened in last 8 years. Do you ever read your mail?

    1. Hi SUsan,

      Sorry I did not reply earlier but we are closed on Sundays and yesterday was a holiday and we were closed also. I just got into the office Tuesday morning.

      Based on our experience with literally thousands of clients who have eliminated many beliefs in order to make profound changes in their lives, self-esteem type beliefs are formed in the first six years of life in interactions with parents or primary caregivers.

      I wrote a couple of blog posts to explain why.

  25. Susan Droege says:

    Most of my beliefs come from many, many disappointing experiences in life, not from my parents.

  26. Hi Morty –

    I am working through Natural Confidence and periodically working through “Who am I really?”. I get that we are the creator of our beliefs and therefore the creator of our lives. But when I get near the end of the segment and you ask about how I feel about the possibilities, I still feel as though there are many beliefs that are in the way of creating my own life and I don’t know what all those beliefs are, yet. So, I really don’t have the feelings that you describe in the segment that others have felt. Any thoughts?

    1. Hi Andrea,

      If you are thinking about beliefs that you still need to eliminate, your aren’t in the “creator space.” You are in your head, thinking about the future.

      Try doing the WAIR? Process again and allow yourself to make the distinction between you the creator and you the creation. Get that who you really are is the creator of your life. When you are in that space, you will not think about what’s missing, it will feel–at that moment–as if nothing is missing, anything is possible, and that you have no limitations.

      Sometimes people have to do the process a few times to be able to get into–or stay in for a few minutes–that space.

      Let me know what happens.

      Love, Morty

      1. Thanks, Morty. I’ll give it a try.

        Many Thanks,


  27. Susan Droege says:

    I can’t get anything out of this website. Am I doing something wrong? If not, you just confirmed my belief of not being important. Pretty cruel!

    1. Hi Susan,

      Sorry you are having difficulties with our free belief-elimination program.

      About 150,000 people have tried it and it works for most people, but not all.

      I am not sure why it is not working for you. If you want to call us perhaps we can give you some help in getting it to work. 415-884-0552.

    Hi Moety,
    I have purchased your program and when I tried to use your helpdesk, the captcha code everytime showed that I entered incorrectly.
    In other words, I cannot get pass your captcha code to submit my request.
    Hence I am writing via this channel.
    It appears that I am not able to get much benefit from the program and hence I would like to request for a refund.
    Please advise the procedure and please note that I cannot communicate thru your helpdesk due to the above issue.


  29. What if my parents actually told me I wasn’t good enough? What if I was told I was the problem and cause of all of their marital discord? What if I was held under water in a bathtub whenever I tried to be heard? Is it possible to get rid of a limiting belief if you were told you weren’t good enough and didn’t just deduce it from your parents behavior?

    Thanks for your response,

    1. Hi Meghan,

      While you may have heard your parents say you aren’t good enough enough, you never heard that what they said was true. One interpretation of your parents saying it is that they thought you weren’t good enough and they were right, another interpretation is that your parents thought it was true but they were wrong.

      Love, Morty

  30. Morty,

    I am excited how you have taken a complex philosophy (existentialism) and made it simple(r) to “get it”. We create/label the meaning from meaningless events. This means we have the ability to create or significantly influence our lives. In concept we are the creator in Genisis. May we remain humble with this knowledge.

  32. Hi Morty

    I just finished watching the videos in your free “I’m not good enough” limiting-belief series, and I’m afraid to say that it hasn’t worked for me. I can honestly say that I never got the feeling from my parents that I wasn’t good enough. They were always incredibly supportive.

    My feeling of not being good enough is quite specific, and it’s centred around my ability (or inability) to attract women. I’m a short man of 5’4″, and the belief that I’m not good enough is a result of beliefs and perceptions surrounding my height.

    Can the Lefkoe Method be applied to my specific limiting beliefs?

    Kind regards,


    1. Hi Jeff,

      Sorry that the free belief-elimination process didn’t work for you.

      Here are a couple of blog posts that explain the source of negative self-esteem beliefs. http://www.mortylefkoe.com/031610/ and http://www.mortylefkoe.com/wonderful-parents/#

      There certainly are other beliefs that lead men to have anxiety about approaching a woman, and I wrote a blog post about that also: http://www.mortylefkoe.com/overcome-approach-anxiety/

      After reading these articles, let me know if you still have any questions.

      Love, Morty

        Hello Morty,
        While listening to you describe your life before your personal transformation and awakening . I heard myself, especially the relationship part:)I am a mother of five children from four different men i was married twice . Was not given much love or consideration by any of them yet gave all of myself to them and spent my life from 15 years old until present 41 loving and caring for my children . I have avoided a relationship of any kind due to not wanting to sabotage another one. I have been readying myself for a fantastic man to come into my life and i believe he is now here!I really do not want to screw it up by being over caring and zealous. I am really watching my thoughts and have caught myself a few times falling back into old patterns of thinking and then acting or doing . I did experience your i”m not good enough exercise and do comprehend the difference. Hopefully it will remain in my consciousness,
        Recent activity in my life offers me the insight that i am well on my way attracting a healthy and happy individual who mirrors me in fantastic ways;although i will certainly take the rest of your exercises as i do not want any old negative beliefs or conditioning to get in the way of our love and happiness together and we attracted each other a month before .
        Morty you are an awesome soul ! Thank you kindly for sharing and
        caring . Morty if you have any advise for me i would happily welcome it!
        All my appreciation Kimberley

    Hi Morty and Shelley,
    being an italian girl i would love to ask you to do this program also in italian since many italians have a feeling of being victim of something or someone.
    Anxiety is the answer for many. They feel no love around them and feel lonley. They usually let go in life. I saw thousands of them, Morty!

    They usually use the expression ” There`s no hope”. No wonder Italy now is the recession and are on their last leg. Of course my parents, friends, relatives and acquaintance speak all the same, “there`s no hope”. They are anxious and in depression. The parents being under stress “attack” their kids. Women are way to strong, they are not subjected to the husband, the husband does what the woman wants or else. Women shouts and show off their nails. Its quite frightening, Morty,.

    I remember my mother doing this with me . I was in fear, shivering and crying in the night time in my bed `til i was falling asleep exhausted. I believe your program not only can help them but also is quite reasonable money wise.

    I`ll be happy to translate for you all of the program.

    Be well, Love
    Annamaria 🙂

    1. Hi Annamaria,

      Thanks for your offer to translate our program. I’m not sure, however, if you are talking about the three free beliefs of the 19 beliefs in our Natural Confidence program?

      In any case, although it would be great to have a translation, we then would have to turn the translation into videos. And even more important, we need to find a way to market the videos in Italy once we have all of them prepared in Italian.

      If someone offered to help us market the videos in Italy, we would be more interested in creating an Italian product.

      I’m sure that at some point we will be able to offer all our program in several languages, including Italian.

      Live, Morty

  34. Hello, im a person who never had success here (tried in past) and back trying again.

    If nothing that happens has any meaning, how are we suppose to live? How do we interpret our mistakes? How do we get better?

    The beliefs I have are based on the consequences I paid after events. We all attribute meanings to events. How many times should I touch a red hot stove before accepting that warm radiation and glowing red color as “caution, may be hot, don’t touch”? In life many things happen and we give them meaning to try to avoid getting burned again.

    If someone comes in a room and doesn’t speak to me. I might think they don’t like me. No problem. Its the meaning I gave it and may not be true. Especially since I can’t “see” it. But later when that person comes up to me and says “Your fired”, that’s a consequence of something in this world.

    I want to change my beliefs, because I believe they are limiting. I think my beliefs have something to do with me consistently getting negative results in life. Yet I go through the videos, say im not good enough outloud, and still feel not good enough. If no events have any meaning other than what I give them, how do I change my life?

    What “reasonable” interpretations should I make to stop having a life that consistently produces results against my goals? The problem is just as extreme as what I feel rather I ‘see’ it or not.

    If im the farmer and the rain makes me feels good since I gave it that meaning. I don’t care. My problem is as the farmer, im getting no rain, and regardless of how I feel, I want to change my circumstances so I can feed my family.

    1. Hi Travis,

      If you call me at 415-884-0552 I’ll see if I can answer all your questions.

      Love, Morty

  35. Thanks a lot for the free programm ! I’ve did the failure and ” not good enough ” programs about an hour ago, as i suspected them to be the root of my procrastination and fear of producing my art ! And i have a question : how do we really know if the belief is gone forever ! I mean, i don’t have any emotional attach to the sentences anymore, but how do i know if it’s gonna really help me in my life, does it take some time to get used to that new awareness ?
    I’m feeling a bit weird ( or different ) just after doing the processes, not only in my mind, but in my chest, and the first time, when i was imagining my parents yelling at me, i was really feeling bad, as if i was living it again, but for the second process, i felt almost nothing with the same memory !

    Anyway, thanks a lot for everything you’ve accomplished !

    1. Hi Walid,

      The only way to know if the beliefs will come back is to check a week or a month later. For most people, the beliefs do not come back.

      Did they come back for you?


  36. I tried the one for “I’m not important”, thinking it wouldn’t take, and wouldn’t be tested. The very next morning, I had a conversation with my boyfriend, telling him that I was feeling a bit neglected since he’s taken on more work. It wasn’t a serious conversation, I was just noticing it. He jokingly said, ‘Well, do you think you’re special?’. In the past (meaning prior to working the video), I would have been crushed, even though he was joking. Instead, I looked right at him and said, “I KNOW I’m special. I want you to think I’m special too.”

  37. I have just started on the remove a limited belief in 20 mins. Must say that I found this very interesting but like any one sceptical . So I will give this a go and see how I am in a week or so time 19/10/2013. Vee

    1. Hi Vee,

      Many people are skeptical that we can help them eliminate a belief they’ve lived with for a lifetime in just a few minutes. But about 150,000 people have done it.

      Let me know what you think after you’ve eliminated a few beliefs.

      Love, Morty

  38. Morty,

    With regards and appreciation
    Thank you very much,

    Violetta Papala

  39. Hi Morty,

    I’ve just eliminated my 11th belief! I am amazed at the difference I’m already seeing in my life! Like you said in the program, I didn’t have to do anything, I just feel different, and I think and behave differently. I’m a full-time stay at home mom with two very young children. I had felt like doing things other than providing basic care for my kids was hard. Now, I’m getting extra things done every day, often without realizing it! Cooking dinner had been a real challenge. But two weeks ago, my husband mentioned that I had cooked dinner every night that week. I didn’t even notice!

    I started a blog, but wasn’t getting to it very often, getting started writing was a struggle, and I was concerned about what others would think of my writing. Now, I’m writing and posting more often, and I’m less concerned with what others might think.

    Even when I’m having a difficult time, I still feel like anything is possible. There are no absolutes anymore!

    Also, as a Christian, I feel like your program has helped my faith because I can believe the Lord with fewer nagging voices in my head saying, you can’t believe the Lord for that, you can’t do that, what if God doesn’t answer your prayer? Your program has been such a blessing for me!

    I can’t wait to finish your program, because I want to see what I’ll be like when I’m no longer burdened with negative beliefs.

    Also, I’m currently working through Shelly’s parenting system too, and I’m noticing an improvement in my parenting. So, please tell your wife thank you for me!

    God Bless You!

    1. hi. how are you doing now? i wish you could give a complete review of this program. thank you.

  40. Carole Howard says:

    Hi Morty,

    I just listened to the program on the belief “I’m not important” because I figured that was the one behind my great anxiety whenever I have to do public speaking — the “all eyes are on me” panic. (This is in spite of the fact that I’ve done it many times and, in the end, it’s always fine.) I enjoyed the program and need to chew on it/think about it for awhile. Is there anything else, in particular, you can suggest I do?
    Thanks, Carole

    1. Hi Carole,

      We have helped about 4,000 get over a fear of public speaking and have discovered that there are 10-11 beliefs and three conditionings that cause the fear in most people — not one belief.

      We have been so successful in helping people that we offer an unconditional guarantee that if your fear is not totally gone in four one hour sessions with one of our Certified Lefkoe Method Facilitators, you get a full refund.

      For more information or to make an appointment, please call us at 415-884-0552.

      Love, Morty

    I completed the Natural Confidence session last week and I’m evaluating how it’s working for me. Good so far. I’ve suffered from social anxiety throughout the majority of my 64 years on earth. In the last week, I haven’t felt scared or anxious in social situations. My head feels clear and I’m able to assert myself easier than before. I’m able to be a better listener. I’m experiencing a calmness which I haven’t experienced in years. I can say the fear is gone. I’ve spent a lot of time and money on therapy and have found the Lefkoe Method to be an effective shortcut for healing my suffering due to my former false beliefs. Thank you Morty, Shelly and their staff.

  42. A little in my head about the belief- “if I make a mistake or fail- i’ll be rejected.” Things that come to mind for me is what about people who get fired for making a mistake or failing? They get rejected from the job position and not as an individual? same thing for kids, they may have made mistakes as kids and gotten themselves kicked out of school. The school rejects the behavior and there by rejects them. How can one see past this of not being REJECTED completely for making a mistake or failing?

    1. Hi Janis,

      The belief Mistakes and failure are bad means you believe ALL mistakes and failure, in any situation, are bad. That statement is not true.

      Can it be true that making a mistake in a specific situation leads to a “bad” result? Of course But finding a single piece of evidence does not mean the generalization is true.

  43. I understand that we give things a meaning and it is our interpretation of the events. I understand that meaning is different to consequences. However, I do not understand how clearing or changing the meaning to an event, whilst it may change the belief, actually clears the emotion and/or consequences from the body (you speak of the mind as if it is separate).

    In my case, many of my beliefs, such as “not good enough” came from a harsh, strict, physically disciplinary father. My body and nervous system, through physical abuse, become primed to be in a certain state of anxiety and fear on an almost constant basis. I can clear beliefs and give the events a different spin, but having 10 Uncle Morty’s across the road wouldn’t have changed how my body and neurology was conditioned.

    I am very interested to hear how your thoughts on how you believe changing your belief system changes all the body systems? Thank you.

    1. Hi Simone,

      I’m not sure how eliminating beliefs changes body systems, all I know from the reports of literally thousands of people that when beliefs are eliminated, anxieties stop. The fear of public speaking has been stopped by about 4,000 people. Social anxiety has been stopped. Anger has been stopped.

      It might be hard to make real if you are only reading about it and not experiencing it. But when you stop giving meaning to an event, the event does not and cannot result in feelings of any kind. We’ve had hundreds of people confirm that.

      Love, Morty

    Dear Morty,

    Hi, my name’s Abigail. I just got rid of my belief that mistakes and failures are bad. I feel so empowered; I’m pinching myself to make sure it’s not a dream. The amazing thing: I’m only 11! (I’m actually supposed to be doing writing, but personally, this is a much better way to spend my time. Please don’t tell my parents! ) Now I have my whole life ahead of me, to use my new-found confidence to do … anything! Thank you so much!

    Hi Monty,

    I went through the “I’m not good enough” program and I see the value in it. My comment has to do with my own personal childhood experiences. I have no memories of my parents making me feel like I wasn’t good enough and yet those feelings exist. When I dug deeper, I realized that my teachers at my Catholic grade school and high school contributed greatly to this feeling. I remembered several specific examples of teachers making me feel this way. In addition to that, some of my fellow students contributed to an already poor self esteem by being just plain mean. I have reconciled these deep seated issues and I thank you for helping me look at this.

  46. Hi Monty

    Having gone through the process of “I’m not good enough” I do feel that this belief is eliminated. I realised that I created this belief as an incorrect interpretation of what I saw in my parent’s reaction to me.

    One question and one observation. You seem to have felled this belief through rationalisation and logic. Why then does one have to work through every belief using this Method surely as a logical follow on it is obvious that this process will eliminate all beliefs. My guts tell me I will have to take each in turn but why?

    The observation is that I also accept I am the creator of myself. However this did not bring me a sense of elation. Instead I felt responsible for either taking up this challenge or not. The most apparent emotion I felt was daunted and somewhat nervous. In fact I am aware that I am uncomfortable with that level of responsibility. (actually as I type this I realise this is in fact another question – basically what’s going on here?)

    Great work btw – I have tried to positively realise myself and this only ever resulted in failure but this objective realisation is really powerful. Thank you so much


    1. Hi Adrian,

      Thanks for your note and questions.

      First, every time we form a belief it seems to us as if we can see that belief in the world. So it seems to us as a child as if we could see I’m not good enough and I’m not important, etc. Merely knowing intellectually that we make up all our beliefs and none are the truth does not overcome the fact that we think we saw each belief.

      So you need to get for each belief that you didn’t see it in the world, that it existed only in your mind, that the events leading to the belief have no inherent meaning.

      Also, when actually in the altered state of consciousness that is produced by the WAIR? Process, you don’t feel responsible. That feeling, that is not very common, comes when you leave that state and think about it afterwards.

      Love, Morty
