11 Steps for Creating Empowering Beliefs

11 Steps for Creating Empowering Beliefs by Karen McKy

It is important to understand that who we are today is a direct result of the subconscious programming we received and have operated from earlier in our lives.

We have all been subconsciously programmed!

This is not a bad thing it is just a fact of life and living. All of us have amazing programming that has been, and still, is beneficial to us. None of us would put our hand on a hot stove as adults. This safety program was installed at the subconscious level early in life to protect and preserve our well being.

Likewise, we all have programming that is no longer supporting us or our development. An example of this would be the belief

Children must be seen and not heard

Assuming you are now an adult, you would not be able to operate well in an adult world from this perspective. You would never get anything accomplished if you didn’t speak up at work or in other environments where your input is important and necessary.

If this belief was your programming as a child, and it was never updated as you grew older, your life would be one of minimalism and ineffective outcomes.

Why be a prisoner of your own outdated beliefs?

Non-beneficial programming such as this is what we wish to alter so we can live our lives more fully and manifest at a higher level than we are currently.

Following are 11 steps for creating empowering belief statements.

This is only PART of what is needed for creating permanent subconscious change in our lives. The rest of what you need to know you will learn in the Basic PSYCH-K® Workshop.


When you write a belief statement it should be short and no more than one sentence in length. Shorter sentences are much better than rambling statements.


The belief statement should be meaningful; that is emotionally moving and important. If there is little interest in the belief then it won’t do much for you once it is installed as a new operating program.


It is helpful if there is measurement included in the new belief statement. This means giving the belief statement some quantifiable point/s. Include how many hours, days, or weeks something will manifest within, or the amount of money you will see in your savings account.


Your desires need to be concrete. Since the subconscious mind doesn’t interpret abstract thoughts your statements need to be clear and precise and explain exactly what you mean and want.


Beliefs need to be realistic, something you know you can attain. It can be better to stair-step your belief statements and keep increasing your goals rather than shooting for something that seems so distant that it appears unattainable. Big goals can be stated and worked with. If you want to be an astronaut or millionaire you can balance for that with PSYCH-K and include smaller steps to get to your goals.


Create your belief statements using a reasonable time frame so you can acknowledge receiving the benefit of your goal. This allows you to remember you created the belief supporting the manifestation. If something you want in your life is too far in the future, you may not remember you actually created a belief statement about it.

First Person

Belief statements should always be created in first person. You can never press yourself upon another person. You are doing work for and with yourself, for your own well being. Therefore, use the word I, my, or me in your statements. Let other people take care of themselves.

Present Tense

The subconscious lives only in the present tense. Even if something occurred 15 years ago the subconscious still thinks of it as if it were happening right now. Eliminate any reference in your belief statements that indicates future or past tense. This includes words such as can, want, will (future tense) and did, had, wanted (past tense).


Your belief statement should be about important changes you desire to have in your life. If something is unimportant or frivolous it isn’t something really worth changing. Focus on what you really do want to have in your life!


Your statement must be written in positive terms. Use of the words, “not”, “no”, or words using “un-” at the beginning, or contractions with “n’t” at the end of them, or use of double negatives cause confusion for the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind does not hear or pay attention to the negative. Re-read your statement without using the negative word, is this what you want in your life?


Be very specific about what you want and need in your life. Being vague will bring you vague results. When you are specific your subconscious knows exactly what you want and mean. Write your belief statements out and reflect on them a bit. This takes the thought out of your head and allows you to see it on paper. You may think you have clearly expressed your statement, yet when it is written, you see that it is unclear. Specificity is the golden key to a well organized belief change statement.

Creating great belief statements is only part of creating change at the subconscious level. Join us at the PSYCH-K Basic Workshop and learn how to make the changes permanent.

Once you have your belief statement it must be integrated into the subconscious mind!

This, along with many other important processes and points, is what you will learn in the Basic PSYCH-K Workshop, along with lots of information about the subconscious mind.

I learned more about myself in my first Basic workshop than I did in 17 years of psychotherapy. I’m NOT KIDDING!

I highly recommend this training and know you will receive many benefits you can’t imagine right now. Everyone who goes through the class experiences magical moments of inner wisdom and insight into whom they really are as a human being.

After the class you will be a PSYCH-K® Facilitator and may utilize this process with clients, friends, and family to assist them, as well as yourself, in creating lasting and empowering personal change at the subconscious level. I look forward to meeting you and having you join us.
