    There are many ways of changing thought patterns and replacing negative beliefs. However, just the thought of trying to figure out what the different methods are, and go through the process of finding out what they are, can be an overwhelming endeavor to even begin. So here is my list of things that I have found in my own search. By doing further research on some of the different methods, you will be able to find one or two ways that work well for you.

Here is the list of methods that I have found:

   BWE=Brain Wave Entrainment is used to bring the brain into various states of consciousness through the use of pulsed tones that cause the brain to produce an electrical response stimulating different areas of the brain. In a sense quietening the mind for clearer thought processes. For a more detailed report go to:

   NLP=Neurolinguistic Programming is "the means to study the underlying representations within the mind in order to reconstruct behavior and turn such modeled behavior into permanent unconscious habit. NLP uses Modeling in three patterns of behavior; physical, linguistic, and cognitive." From worldofnlp.com

   Subliminal Messages= available through many programs which use visual or audio messages embedded in video or behind music or nature sounds. They can also be used in any combination including with BWE and or hypnosis.

   Hypnosis=Hypnosis involves an introduction to the procedure during which the subject is told that suggestions for imaginative experiences will be presented. When using hypnosis, one person (the subject) is guided by another (the hypnotist) to respond to suggestions for changes in subjective experience, alterations in perception, sensation, emotion, thought or behavior. A person can also learn self-hypnosis.

   EFT= also known as ‘Tapping'. Basically this therapeutic modality uses tapping with the fingertips at certain points on the body that correspond with energy circuits throughout the body. These energy circuits...or meridians, are a central theme in Eastern health practices and form the basis for modern day acupuncture, acupressure and a wide variety of other healing techniques. The essence behind EFT according to Gary Craig, in The EFT Manual is: "The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system." In essence by tapping these meridians, it is possible to release the disruption in the flow of energy and allow negative thoughts, beliefs, and emotions to be replaced by positive ones. It is more involved than that, but for now...the short version.

   Positive affirmations using short sentences with positive statements, usually in the present tense and with the use of "I am" instead of "I want to", "I hope to", etc...Can also help to change negative thoughts and beliefs.

    Energy Healing=The techniques used in energy healing sometimes called Aura Balancing can used a pendulum or the hands to balance the energy field (aura) surrounding the body as a preventative to disease and a psychological integration and spiritual alignment. the balancing occurs through a shift in reality based on spiritual mind and the expression of living love out of Source. Another method uses intention and the spoken word and can be effective even from a distance. There are many energy workers out there and you can find some of them at worldpuja.org. If you can center yourself and receive the energy, you will see that this can be very powerful in shifting you to the next level of consciousness. 

     This list is meant to offer several alternatives to explore and use for changing negative thinking and beliefs. As always, please do your research before using any of these methods, use what feels right for you, and come back here to look for more detailed information in future posts on each of the methods mentioned as well as new ones that may come to light in the future.
