“At the bottom of all our behaviors, there’s our belief system. It is the foundation for every behavior (or non-behavior) we express in our life, so it is very important to align your subconscious beliefs with your conscious goals and directions.” - Rob Williams (Inventor de Psych-K®)
What is a belief?
A belief is the state of mind in which an individual assumes to be true the knowledge or experience they have about an event or thing. The content of the belief is supported by logical thinking, and is expressed through what we say and affirm, the way we think about the world or our life and through the actions we take every day. Basically believing means "taking something for granted, without having evidence of it.”

Have you ever wondered to what extent the way you grew up influences the person you are today?
We all know that our families, our parents and our environment influenced many of the opinions we have about the world and about ourselves, but we tend to believe that the thoughts we have today are only ours.
I’d like to ask you: how did your mother use to talk about herself? Did she refer to herself with kind words or with words of self-criticism? How did she use to describe herself when looking in the mirror?
And what about when she was describing another woman? Where was the attention directed? To her physical appearance, her attitude or her skills? And the words used were critical or appreciative? Do you think your mother felt good about her body or did she go from one diet to another in a perpetual battle to lose weight? Or maybe when she was feeling stressed she ate more?
I’m saying “your mother” but in the same way it could have been your father, or your sister or brother, aunts and uncles, grandparents or anyone close to you in your childhood.
Try to remember …
What happened when, as a child, you didn't want to eat something you had on your plate? Were you forced to finish it even if you weren't hungry anymore or could you quit? And what about sweets? Did they give them to you as a reward if you behaved well?
Do you remember what happened when you tried to do something and it turns out that, according to your parents, you were doing it "wrong"? Maybe they used to criticize you? Or perhaps they completed the task for you?
Now, do you think these episodes contributed to form the relationship you have with food and your own body and to shape your self-esteem today?

Do you think that in your life you act or judge based on beliefs?
The reality is that 95% of your actions today are carried out automatically and unconsciously and are the direct consequence of our beliefs.
All that we observed, heard and felt as we related to our environment as children was stored in the depths of our minds and formed our beliefs. Everything that came later and until today we interpret according to those experiences we lived back then. And this happens without us realizing it, in a totally involuntary and unconscious way.
This means that when mom spoke of herself or other women in negative terms, we understood that this is how we should judge ourselves and women in general. And when we were forced to finish what we had on our plate even if we were full or we didn't like it, we learned that food has less to do with satiating hunger or nourishing ourselves, and more to do with respecting the rules and pleasing our parents. In other words, we gave it emotional value.
In the same way, when we were continually criticized for not living up to expectations, we formed the belief that we are not good enough. And when they put us aside to finish what we were not "doing well", we learned that making mistakes is not acceptable and that you either know how to do everything perfectly from the start or we will never do. Failing equals shame.
In the vast majority of cases this happened with the best intentions from our parents or educators. After all, they, too, were unconsciously repeating a pattern learned from their own educators.
So, without realizing it, today we repeat those things we learnt over and over again. As much as we want to change our attitude, we can’t do it because it is engraved in our subconscious and it is the only way we know how to live.
Can I change my beliefs?
The good news is that these beliefs and behavior patterns can be changed!
PSYCH-K® is one of the tools that I use in my sessions to re-program your subconscious and thus allow you to leave behind those models that no longer serve you and that prevent you from reaching your weight goals.
PSYCH-K® allows you to change, to achieve goals, and to know yourself in a kind, safe, and respectful way. With PSYCH-K® you replace beliefs that limit you with new beliefs and you can change your perception of yourself and the world.
Imagine how different your life would be if you deeply believed that you can achieve whatever you want. And if you felt only love and respect for yourself and you were your greatest cheerleader!
Psych-K® is completely safe and has no side effects.
