    The process is very well presented.


  2. Mary Schiller

    This video explains a complicated process in a simple, easy-to-understand way. Thank you.

  3. Morty,
    Thank you for the video. You always manage to put in simple words any complicated matter. I tried to explain to myself out loud the Lefkoe Belief Process and it came out terribly. I need more training. But I would love to be able to help other people and ease their suffering (which is self inflicted).

  4. Thank you Morty for this wonderful explanation. Limiting Beliefs are not just a problem with clients but sometimes with the Facilitator as well. Many times I have discovered a limiting belief in myself that I was not aware of while working on the same limiting belief in a client. This has been helpful for me to not only recognize more limitning beliefs in myself but to then eliminate them. Thank you again Morty for all you do to help others. It is greatly appreciated.

    Good video Morty. This is very useful because in real practice we come across various clients with different personalities/belief systems and hence it is not always possible to use a standard formula for the change work. The practitioner has to be flexible and resourceful enough to come up with a strategy suited best for the client and yet which fulfills the purpose of the session.

    All your videos and instructions are very clear and straightforward. It shows that you are very clear about what you are doing.

    Dear Morty thank you very much for the information that you always send to me .Its such a very good message please God
    should reward you.
    Thank you.


  9. Joseann

    Hi Morty, very helpful as always, thank you. What really hit home was this sentence:
    Saying “dogs are dangerous” makes me feel anxious because I really do believe it.
    Is it legitimate then to say that whenever we feel something when somebody says something, we hold a belief about it or to phrase it differently, if we wouldn’t hold beliefs, words wouldn’t make us feel anything at all?
    So the power of a word to make us feel something is depending on us believing (something) in the first place? If we didn’t believe, words wouldn’t have an impact on us? The cause for the feelings is the belief then, not the word?
    This brings up a whole bunch of more questions, but thanks for now, I really have to chew on this one. Joseann

  10. Thank you, Morty, once again for the information you put forth so articulately to share with other facilitators such as yourself. This presentation is very well presented. The points you´ve made are clear, practical, and useful to use on our clients and outselves. Thank you for sharing! Wishing you abundance in all areas of your life.

  12. Abraham

    Dear Morty,

    Thank you very much. I am amazed by the simplicity of the techniques you recommend to probe deep into real causes of the beliefs. I was practcing the techniques on myself and with a friend, and it really works. You are wonderful.

    Thank you.

    thank you very much for sharing this information, it will change my life.


  14. Carlene Neervoort

    Excellent. Very professional and clearly presented. I have written a book and have a fear of public speaking. No good.


  15. Katheryn

    I have no problem identifying beliefs I know intellectually aren’t true but I have a terribly difficult time letting them go. “I’m not good enough” “I screw up everything I touch” “I do not have the capacity for success because I fail everytime” “Trying something is an excuse to fail” “I’m a waste of space because I do not contribute”


  16. phil

    thank you so much, so revieling, thats it in tha core


  17. Joseann

    Brilliant!


  18. Dorothy Perger

    Thank you for pointing out to me where my beliefs come from. – childhood -. Now I need to remind myself of that fact so that I can finally overcome feelings of little worth, at the age of 64.!
    Thank you Marty

    Excellent videos! Thank you very much!

  21. Jennifer

    How is the Lefkoe Method significantly different from mainstream CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy)? I’m a medical doctor who uses CBT in my psychotherapy practice – I’m always looking for something new to try, so I looked into this method, and I can’t see much difference between it and CBT.

    CBT links your moods with certain thoughts (here, you would call them “beliefs”), and then explores the ways in which these thoughts are, in fact, “thinking errors,” and then encourages you to re-formulate the thought more accurately, which in turn, corrects the downward spiral in mood. The identification of “core beliefs” (common ones include “I’m not smart,” or “I’ll never attract a partner”) is an important part of CBT, which is now the primary psychotherapy technique in use today.

    So I’m just wondering how this is different – I can see some small differences – but how is it different in the sense that it’s offering anything new?

  22. Morty, have you had any of your practitioners use muscle-testing in conjunction with your approach? I’ve been using self muscle testing on coaching clients since 2007, and when I came across your information and approach, I incorporated most of it into what I was already doing with clients, which helped me get to the root belief more effectively, and help them shift beliefs at their deepest level more quickly and easily.

    The muscle testing approach allows me to take out the guesswork of trying to “figure out” what beliefs the client has. I can know in a couple seconds whether a client is resonating with any particular belief either consciously or unconsciously. Using MTing streamlines things quite a bit, and I was just curious if you had worked with any practitioners who are using that tool. Feel free to contact me directly if you’d like more detail on how this works. It can shorten the session time dramatically.

    Dear Monty, many thanks for your email I am quite interested in your theories. However,
    In your scenario where you assume the client may think dogs are dangerous and that cats are not, the reality is that some dogs can be very dangerous, but on the whole, cats are not (unless you happen to be a bird or a mouse!).) Therefore, someone’s general belief may be that some dogs are dangerous, but it may not be a core belief (or a limiting one) – unless of course you are a postman!

    Hey, thanks for the video.

  27. Hi Monthy, with regard the scenario involving limiting beliefs concerning dogs and cats being dangerous (or not), the fact is that some dogs can be dangerous and most cats are not. (Unless you happen to be a bird or a mouse!) There’s nothing wrong in some ‘limiting’ beliefs – sometimes they keep you safe (especially if you deliver mail!)


  28. Lauren

    A few nights ago, I dreamed of feeling very angry, even waking up feeling angry. I realized in my family anger was something that we weren’t allowed to express and that I’ve spent my life suppressing anger. The video resonates with me in that I have a hard time figuring out what my own beliefs are beyond those listed in Natural Confidence. The process you present in the video intrigues me in that I’ve encouraged my awareness of my own evolution in the last couple of months. Even more, I’ve paid attention and contemplated my own behavior and what I can do to eliminate the beliefs that affect it. I’m looking forward to the next video.

  30. ali

    hi, Mr. and Mrs. lefkoe

    please help me about how i can trust people ?

    because of events like …my mom and dad told me don’t trust stranger… or told me don’t speak with other boys because they were bang or bad boy. and in my country i can’t speak with girls because of religion and every time i heard that my bigger sister or mother told me don’t go to uncle or nice home because they have girl and this is like… they told me we couldn’t trust you. then don’t go there.

    hi Morty,
    hehe i like the joke in the preview-screen of the first video 😀
    My friend and I laught from core


  34. Tony

    Thank you Morty!!!!

    I appreciate you and your work tremendously!!! And these training videos are invaluable. I plan on studying them over and over. What a great gift!!

    Thank you again,
    Tony

    Hi,

    the first dialoge sounds like a joke – i had to laught.

    Thank You Morty very much for this.
    It would be nice to add this one “if people know s.th. bad about me I’ll be rejected” to natural confidence.
    Even during natural confidence people only talk to the computer, there still might not difference this, because of the talking to the computer. by deleting it first, the client would be on the saver side, and the process would be more effective (in my opinion)

    greetings from europe,

  37. Wow! I feel you are talking about me! Intellectually and rationally I know some of these beliefs I hold about myself are not true, but my mind doesn’t let me see the truth or won’t let me let go of the negative belief! I dwell on things and often generalize things about myself that are not ALWAYS true! I don’t try things because I fear I will fail, I procrastinate because I think I am unable to do a great job, and I don’t like to go to some sociall gatherings, in fear people won’t like me, I hope next lesson you’ll give me the cure!

  38. Great tips. Thank you. I also find that asking “Why do you belief that?” or “Do you belief that?” after a negative statement they have said, works well. That way I don’t have to second guess them. I let the client take the lead. I have also asked when they say they don’t believe it. “If you did believe it, how would that feel?” And then go from there. It works.
    Thank you again for your excellent programs that help so many people.


  39. Nooshafarin

    I truly wanted to thank you . Reading your blog and listening to your videos have made my feelings and emotions more conscious. This is priceless. I’ve recommended it to someone who needs it badly.


  40. Lynn

    This mirrors my experience with the Lefkoe Method, where I was unable to get in touch with any of the beliefs you provide. This is helpful for facilitators, but it would be helpful for you to provide guidance for clients who find it hard to get in touch with a belief.

  41. Thank you for your gift to our world. You are making a somewhat complex process understandable to anyone and broken down into steps. You are brilliant and you care. If everyone was exposed to your method, the world would be a better place.


  42. Bonnie

    Truly helpful material! I usually don’t take the time to watch videos, but I’m glad I did in this case. Appreciate you taking the time and making this info available!


  43. suzanne botka

    Great piece of information… I have come across this problem while working with a few people. It can be frustating when as an observer of the person you can see the problem. knowing these steps helps to keep the process going without getting annoyed and without bullying the client.


  44. Katharine Bain

    I love the seeming simplicity of this material and the profound underpinnings of it. I look forward to learning more and more.

    Thanks


  45. frances cranton

    woah! I found this very informative and helpful on my part thanks


  46. Helen May

    Very interesting


  47. Helen May

    I think that tip three would be difficult to use – looking for the source of a belief that they do not agree that they have. I’d like to be a facilitator at some stage though.


  48. Darl Long

    Thank you for the great insight in these tips. I have run into situations where clients have struggled with beliefs and this gives me some great tools with helping them overcome them. Thank you.


  49. Aaron

    Thank you. Good tips and ideas. I’m curious about the part of the video that comes before this…where with the client we begin to think about and identify negative beliefs (i.e., the ones they CAN admit to). Peace.


  50. Lila Monterrosa

    Thank you. Waiting for more. Lila


  51. Buddy

    I couldn’t figure out how to eliminate “change is difficult and takes a long time” and realized it was actually “change is impossible”. I still couldn’t eliminate it and then discovered that I had to do it with a co-dependant mindset, in other words, trying to change someone else’s behaviour was impossible. I worked through it fine and then I could bring it to myself by trying to change “powerlessness, and related” and now all other change-work is easier 🙂

  52. Wow. This video is clear, and such a great message. I found the tips useful, even to implement them while regularly having conversations with people. Thank you Morty

  53. I think this is great advice and simple to understand.


  54. nooshafarin

    it is starting to sink in and become automatic . Thanks for your priceless services.


  55. suman

    Dear Morty and Shelley,

    I used your ‘End Procrastination’ DVD a couple of days back, and wanted to write to you, about it. I am sure you get a lot of mail of this kind, but still, this is from my experience.

    First of all, I thank you both (and others in your team). I consider you as great friends to me. I have always relied on friends to learn about life. I came across your website a few months back, from another Steve Pavalina’s site, which I had found accidentally.

    I am from India, a woman in late forties, well educated, intelligent, and independent. That said, I have had one particular kind of traumatic emotional life. I had a harsh, abusive childhood – severe verbal and emotional. Strong, continued verbal abuse is actually a form of physical abuse. My parents had a very stable marriage, and ran a stable household. But they had a streak of cruel perversity, and all their children were treated as natural enemies and hence easily available punching bags. But, education was almost free in my country, back then, and all of us did well.Some time along my childhood, I became aware of the extreme, wanton injustice. I was sensitive, articulate, and read a lot. I did not take the treatment passively, and confronted them often.

    This is what I want to point out in particular, since it relates to your method wrt my experience. In my righteous anger, I ‘knew’ a lot of alternate interpretations of my parents behavior, even when it was happening – “they are perversely unreasonable” “I try so consciously not to burden them, yet they act as if I were a reckless criminal” so on. My anger always countered and fought their accusations of my/our not amounting to anything, being up to no good etc. I had cultivated a well informed contempt for all their pronouncements. As a result, I started believing that I had resisted their attempts to damage me.(“I have dealt with them then and there”) And to an extent it is true, I have good sense of self worth and proud of my good qualities. I used to believe the only scars I carried were a sense of isolation and emotional lacking.

    When I did go through your program I discovered that it was not really so. My defense was not as effective as I had imagined it to be all along – all my angry tirades (mental, verbal) were (and still are, unfortunately)actually disguised submissions to their judgment. I needed to realize this fact, in order to see the “mistakes are bad” “I am not good enough” meaning I was seeing in the childhood incidents. This was crucial, in the ‘seeing’ process. After that I ‘saw’.

    I well expected to have the ‘mistakes are bad’ due to the long years of harsh judgement, and also ‘I am powerless’, as all those years of expressed and felt anger showed, and I was right. But it looks like when my mind was screaming something like”they are beastly”, I was actually seeing “I am a failure”.

    It turns out I have (now close to “had”) many of the others: I am not capable, I am failure, and I need people to like me(be nice, not assertive).

    I wanted you know my particular experience. There is a difference in me. I will repeat the process a few more times. Eventually, I want to see that having parents with these natures, the fact of being born in a particular society, the many disadvantages, the few advantages, are all meaningless events that should be shed from my mind. I want to move ahead and enjoy life, use my abilities.
    regards, suman

    Morty,

    Thank you for sharing this process. I hope the rest will be as clear and easy as this first video.

    Best regards,


  57. Cynthia M.

    Great video! Just a couple of suggestions/comments:

    First, you talk about asking a client if they can see “their” belief in a situation they’re describing. I would instead ask them if they can see “that” belief in the situation. After all, they haven’t yet admitted to HAVING that belief–i.e., it’s not yet “their” belief. If they can see “that” belief appears to be inherent in the situation, then it’s easier to think they might believe it.

    Second, when they say they know dogs aren’t dangerous (or some other belief), I would say “I know as an adult you realize that (dogs aren’t dangerous); but as a young child, might you have believed or felt that it was true? Could that small child inside of you still believe that, even though as an adult you now realize it’s not?” Most of our beliefs were formed when we were quite young and didn’t have the powers of comprehension we do now. We’re mistaken if we think our adult knowing changes what that inner child still believes to be true.

  62. Rosemary Baily

    Very helpful information and the summary is also wonderful, very clear explanations. Thank you Mr. Lefkoe!


  63. Lynn

    This is really good stuff and a great training so that we can catch our own limiting beliefs around clients. Thanks for this!

  64. Thank you so much for clarifying this issue. So much food for thought. Believing the intellect always covers so muchThe aim of PDT is to help people break their negative belief patterns, act more decisively, and set clear goals towards achieving what they want from life. Most coaches are highly trained as generalists but many also specialise in areas such as relationships, stress, personal growth, business, careers, motivation, finances, creativity, and family — among many others

    Video would not open.

  68. Dear Mr Lefkoe,
    Greetings,
    I Watched your video intently. I am 64 and almost more than half my life term I served as a Print media journalist. But, I am yet to come across such a video content. Be it the content, approach or handling, there is no doubt you are the master in giving a perfect insight into the problem handling techniques. The techniques per se are effective for those grappling with such psychological problems of not being able to guess why they prefer to go through such an agony throughout their life. Well, this is just one aspect of the sufferers.

    On the other hand, your lessons to facilitators on how to get to the core of the victims’ mindset in persuading them to accept such limiting beliefs are quite convincing. What’s more, it is a thoroughly down-to-earth and practical technique that never fails to yield desired results unless until the facilitator slips in his step by step approach to such events.

    Every bit of the video content is quite absorbing, interesting and innovative; and, of course, result-oriented. Hats off to you. Please continue the service. And, I am awaiting your next lesson.

    With warmest regards,
    SHIVLAL RAJENDRAN

    Thanks Shelly and Morty, this is very useful and as always, so logical and easy to comprehend

    Hi Shelly – thanks for sharing this video. I’m helping my son to overcome his limiting beliefs, but being a teenager, he isn’t always keen to admit they exist. Showing him your video was a great aid. Thanks again.


  71. abby

    Hi , In first video if the lady kept saying no i dont think its this belief why not just MUSCLE TEST??
    That would have saved so much time and frustration???!!

    sencillamente espectacular.


  73. marcia

    I am interested in taking your course eliminating beliefs – is there an exam at the end with a certificate?

    Thank you.
