Belief as Experience

Inspired by Craig N. Shealy:

Making Sense of Beliefs and Values

A BELIEF is experienced in us as:

An internalized version of reality

A filter of subjective experiences

 In relation to our other beliefs

In service of our core needs

We can differentiate four dimensions

of subjective experiences of belief:

Good or Bad

True or False

 Strong or Weak

Consistent or Inconsistent

(with other beliefs)

Beliefs and Values:

Together make up the Self

Are Products of Experiences

Impact us even when Unconscious or Illogical

Beliefs and Values:

Provide access to transform the Self.

Yet, are not easily Modified.

But when changed, transform other aspects of the Self.
