Beliefs are like recordings that play in our mind and mold our thinking and behavior. Look at your beliefs in relation to God and spiritual life and find beliefs that are impediments to your spiritual progress (for example, I can’t control my desires, it is too difficult to control the mind, etc.) Pretend these beliefs belong to someone else and they are asking you for guidance in dealing with them. Convince them how and why these beliefs are working against them, making their spiritual advancement difficult. Suggest new empowering beliefs and show how these new beliefs will help them.
