believe. What has become part of your mind's belief systems, often without you being aware of it. However--Seth does make it clear that these ideas we hold are not buried in the unconscious mind; we simply have to be willing to look at what floats up in our thoughts daily and see what is helping and what's hurting.
It helps to write these things down--often you have to find the right words for certain beliefs, to make it clear to yourself. The stuff you may struggle to find are the areas in which you're blocked. How do I really feel about this - this reality, this thing I can't get a hold on? Why do I feel that way? You have to be honest with yourself, be willing to "look stupid, ignorant, ugly, etc..." because there's truth there. Some stuff you write down may amaze you. You see how conditioned we are (from birth) by environment, later by ourselves.
After that - after seeing what's really there - you can "replace" them with the beliefs that are healthy and positive. It's not just some "mental exercise," you gotta really feel it. But what's wonderful is how this ties in to Seth's teachings (in NOPR) about time--that by changing beliefs now, in a sense you're changing your own past. Kind of freaky, but also freeing. The point of power is in the present... is the idea.
