When Deepest Cherished Beliefs Come Tumbling Down

A person determined to examine their programming and figure out the truth about the world is an adventurer. Like explorations in the physical world, those in mind or spirit can be laced with surprises and challenges, even dangers. But the person intent on truth is willing to face them, trusting in something within to show them the way.

I want to write today about that something. When cherished beliefs are assaulted by new knowledge, the foundations of our world take the hit. That means the foundations of our psyche itself, because that is where our deepest beliefs are structured, deep in subconscious mind. I don’t think a person can question and explore reality without feeling shaken, even shattered, from time to time, and I want to talk about how I personally deal with that. Because the ability to deal with that determines whether we move forward in our quest or turn tail and beat it back to base camp, trying to block out what we heard and saw in the forest.

How deep does the rabbit hole go? We still don’t know. Those of us who research the secrets of the elitist global agenda have not yet reached the end of it. I still get shaken from things I sometimes find. Here is how I deal with that experience.

I know I have a choice, whether to accept fear or whether to trust myself and the essential goodness in the universe. No one can harm me without my tacit permission, and I give that permission when I get into fear. Fear is a decision we make that we can’t take care of ourselves. Once we’ve decided that, it opens the door for harm to enter our lives. Subconscious permission counts as permission, and that’s why the manipulators of this dimension go to such lengths to secure ours.

Through religion, schooling, news and entertainment, we are programmed to accept ideas that take away our natural autonomy and empowerment. We’re taught that we are born into sin, or that we’re born into ignorance. We’re told we’re selfish and greedy, and that ego identification (cherishing our individuality) is the root of all suffering. We’re told we must forfeit freedoms so we can have safety and justice. We’re told the world is a dangerous place and only governments, rules and restrictions can protect us: the bigger they are, the better the protection.

The more we accept these ideas, the more fear takes over our subconscious minds in the form of deep-seated attitudes that tell us we can’t trust ourselves, and that we are little and powerless. By the time we are adults, our subconscious is in a pretty saturated state of self-doubt, which is why our conscious mind builds so many cathedrals to things outside ourselves that we trust to take care of us and explain the world to us. Spiritual teachers, religious leaders, charismatic politicians, celebrities – we let what they say determine what is real and what is right. Because we have no faith in our ability to know what is real and right for ourselves.

That’s unconscious fear, and that attitude is what our manipulators manipulate us through. If it weren’t there, they couldn’t touch us. It’s that subconscious acceptance of ourselves as lacking that keeps the door open to entities outside ourselves messing with us.

What’s the solution? I think, to really examine who we are. To really look at what we’re made of. At bottom, I find I’m a consciousness, a unique spiritual identity empowered with perception and creativity. I am unique and at the same time totally one with the wholeness of consciousness, the First Consciousness, in which all individual consciousness is structured and of which it is made.

Where is the lack? Where is the ignorance, selfishness, and greed that we have been told we are? Those lame concepts are only attitudes we have picked up about ourselves, not our inner reality. Before consciousness doubted itself, it was complete and perfect. That little thought, “but what if maybe I’m not?” was the seed thought that started all the chaos and suffering in the universe. It’s nothing but a wisp of fear, and it is unfounded. How can we be rightfully afraid when we are infinite, when our very consciousness is the stuff of creation, and a manager of creation?

The belief that fear is founded is the ultimate illusion. When we unseat that attitude from our subconscious, through thoughtful examination of who we really are, followed by emotional acceptance of that wonderful reality, there’s nothing to be afraid of anymore. We have found a storehouse of power and goodness within ourselves, and that is our new home base. The place we go back to when life starts to overwhelm us again.

Life cannot be scary when you know what you are made of. You can relinquish your worship of middle-men who claim they will take you to God, or that they are God, once you know you are God as much as anybody else could ever be. You have direct access to the Source, because you’re a child of the Source and part of the Source. Dogmas and beliefs you previously fell for, you can let go of now. You’re equipped for the adventure of living, and nothing can deflect you from your consistent talent for self-referral. Your personhood, established in your Source, is the authority you run things by. Nothing outside can program you again.

When I start to feel shaken by what’s going on the world, or what I’m finding in my research, this is what I go back to that always sustains me. Manipulating entities can’t mess with me, because I don’t give them permission. If I fall into temporary self-doubt and fear, thereby opening the door to their return in the realm of my thoughts, I have only to remember what I am, and they are ousted. It’s easy, once I self-examine and remember. Then the power of the Source, its creativity and joy, flow into me again. While the thought demons sit on the sidelines wondering, “How the heck does she do that?”

When I encounter new information that shakes my current paradigm and whispers I may need to let go of another belief, I take a deep breath and say, “I can survive that.” My beliefs are not who I am, they’re something I own. And I want to clear out any that don’t correctly match the nature of the universe. This puzzle-piecing business requires lots of paradigm revision. When that starts to feel scary, I focus again on who I am and re-experience that inner reality. Then I can handle anything.

    Not sure what Bill sigler means here.
    I was surprised how easy it is to change your mind. I used to think global warming was caused by us. I used to cycle miles every day to avoid contributing to it. Now I doubt it is caused by us but I still cycle because I feel fitter and healthier cycling.
    A new one from reading these blogs and similar that “the Gods” may not have our interests at heart was a bit harder but not so bad.

    Well said Bronte!
    We need to learn not to identify ourselves, define ourselves so much with our beliefs…and understand that beliefs need to be revised as new info comes in. I find it to be a sign of spiritual maturity and intelectual flexibility. Two necessary attributes of self mastery….and freedom!
    Beliefs are tools, and we must learn to use them as such, not as tribal, social or even individual definitions. We are not our beliefs.

    Bang on again, Bronte. I really enjoy reading what you write.

    Two months ago a new monument went up in the Spanish town where I live. It’s a statue of three penitents, and the one out in front is holding a cross. I failed in my attempt to discover whose brainwave it was to erect this ‘reminder’ (literally what ‘monument’ means) of Holy Week. Instead, I was told by several officials that it was the Town Hall’s initiative. Well okay, but who in the Town Hall? Never did find out. Doesn’t matter now.

    I see people walk past the statue every day. Some barely notice it, tourists take photographs of it, some think it’s ‘nice’ and some call it ‘sinister’. Either way, the monument is there. We notice it, we feel it and we accept it.

    It would not surprise me if we see a steep increase in the number of monuments erected in the next few years, right across the world, as a last-gasp attempt to perpetuate this false existence. The human race is moving towards a new period of realisation, but that will only come on a mass scale if our world is seen to markedly deteriorate first. Things have to get worse before they get better for enough people to realise they are in a dreamy comfort zone. I would rather this weren’t necessary and that the masses could open their eyes right now.

    Just how many of us will need to ‘wake up’ from our collective slumber for the change in perception to gather momentum? And how will the change manifest itself? Bronte, how is it already manifesting itself? I’ll be fascinated to find out.

    My own spiritual awakening happened in January. Since then what I have seen and learned has told me that I can play a part in healing the world – but not by meditating on a mountainside awaiting enlightenment. I need to bring people together, especially the well educated, bright, independent ‘realists’ (that’s what they call themselves, but I call them pessimists even though many are my friends) who could – I think – wake themselves and, in turn, help others.

    I know they would rather be optimistic than pessimistic about the future of this world. Wouldn’t we all?

    Jim, I find your remark and resolve very heartening. That kind of attitude is what’s going to turn this old world around.

    One thing I’ll be writing about in the near future is the power of symbols (as in monuments, tattoos, logos, occult emblems on currency) to influence our subconscious and align us with the frequency of what the symbol represents. This is one tool that is used many times a day to reinforce our hypnotic slumber.

    Example: Every time you bow your head in prayer before a meal, what is that gesture saying and reinforcing?

    More on all this later …

    Dear Bronte,
    I just love what you write! It is such a relief to find a place like this among the zillion other deceptive web sites, this stuff about psychic predation is priceless, and that’s just to name one thing.

    Have you heard about a book called Matrix V? It’s supposed to be advanced spiritual knowledge…to be fair, I did learn a few things of interest in there, but here’s my point: the author of that book insists that spiritual maturity entails homosexuality, especially for men. I thought the idea a bit far out (to say the least), but then I remembered how a lot of occult ritual practices of the ‘elite’ usually feature elements of so-called satanism together with a lot of phallic worship…I mean, it’s as if the more you look into it, the more ritualized homosexuality is associated with luciferian worship, kind of like what we hear about Skull&Bones and so on…
    could it be linked to some kind of psychic predation phenomenon?

    Hi Lechatnor. I, too, have a feeling that the almost militant push for homosexuality these days is more than just the efforts of gays asserting their individual rights. I suspect it’s connected to the elite agenda but don’t know how. Anybody out there got some clues?

    Dear Bronte,
    I feel as though I have found a “sister soul” when I read your work. I am new to your site just this past week, but already feel like it is a home I must return to each evening. You have no idea what a relief it is to find like-minded searchers.
    I too have noticed the heavy-handed attempt to infuse the acceptance of homosexuality in today’s world. California wants to pass a school holiday to honor a homosexual leader and of course there was all the hooplah about the Harry Potter character, Dumbledore, being gay. He’s a character in a book, and his sexual preference had no bearing on the story line, so why make such an issue of it? Like Lechatnoir above, I’m also curious if there might be some connection with the occult rites within these secret organizations. From what I’ve read, these practices are in part, to control participants by inducing “shame” in them. And, I cannot fathom how ritual child abuse would not create horrendous fear on the part of the innocent. How would the author of the Matrix V book rationalize “fear” and “shame” as a necessary means to attaining “mature” spirituality?? They seem the polar opposite to me. The Course in Miracles says that the entire reality of the body experience is an illusion, and there is nothing more “of the body” than sex. So, perhaps this is the final push of the ego-based paradigm to force our attention on sex, therefore keeping the body “real”. (?) Like you, I suspect the elite agenda is behind it but have no idea what goal they wish to accomplish.

    For Jim Porter above, one of my favorite new sayings is, “Pessimists are just optimists who know the facts.” Breaking down our erroneous belief system is hard work and often joyless. Bless us all with continued courage.

    Many, many thanks Bronte, for your clarity and depth of soul searching. We truly are all in this together. Though unique, we are one. You are so right.
    Very best of wishes,

    To clarify my comment; “Though unique, we are one.”
    I don’t mean that in the New Age “we are all One, mantra” sense of the word, but that we are one in our origin. Thanks again. -CKP

    This website and all of these comments have made my day. I have been doing research for only 8 months, but already the knowledge about the world, myself, and other people-the reality that I have molded within my own mind-has proven to be manipulated and corrupt by certain crooks and liars. The path that led me to begin seeking the truth all started when I questioned the existence of organic food. After all of this time and research I refuse to eat anything that isn’t organic. I could go on forever, and I’ve been thinking of creating a site myself.
    It’s always very reassuring to see that other people are forward thinking and have actually found the ability to step back and take a damn good look at themselves and our disoriented society, just for at least a moment, and still find a place to respect each and every individual. Thank you for writing this, I’ll be reading through the other chapters as well. Truly inspired by all of you.

    Bronte, you rock. You are a gifted communicator and I thank you from the bottom of my heart (and the top and the sides and the center, the whole thing) for your courage in sharing your thoughts. Over these last 11 years since I asked the Holy Spirit for help and she woke me up, I have felt every day has been a battle for my soul, that I am alone against monstrous forces. But with the Law of One and your work and that of many others now, this journey doesn’t feel so lonely. I congratulate you on your own awakening and your fortitude in running the good race. I am right there beside you. May it always be so.

    Now that I found you, I will keep learning from you and using your powerful words in joy and love and light.

    Thank you.

    Your friend, Sherri
