Here’s a clever way to talk with your clients about belief filters and how beliefs can color perception of reality. The words, “You are wonderful! You are beautiful enough, rich enough, and smart enough. You are free to choose who you want to be,” are printed on card stock. Above this is attached a mylar filter that, when flipped down, covers the writing leaving only the words, “You are a fool. You are inadequate, stupid, a failure, dumb and bad.” This is a great visual tool for discussing how beliefs alter perception.
