We all know how our beliefs define our reality. I currently use the Abraham/Stingray method of finding one better feeling thought/statement at a time. I really like this simple and incremental approach to belief-change.
Here is an example of this method from the book The Astonishing Power Of Emotions.
What is your preferred and most effective method for belief change you have used?
I have been absolutely shattering my old negative non-serving beliefs recently. Almost like there has been a massive acceleration in the growth of my consciousness.
The one major hurdle that took me years to figure out was that "I create my own reality."
Even though I heard that statement over and over again, it really never triggered that understanding (or belief) mechanism inside of me. Then I realized through consistent listening and absorption of resonate information that...
"...every single belief that I can choose, good or bad, exists right now in a parallel reality. All I need to do is choose the one that feels the best and know with zero doubt, this is who I am Right Now. I am now a completely different person with a completely different belief system."
The infinite parallel reality concept, and knowing that they are all happening right this moment, are the simplest and most effective tools that work for me. It just went from wondering if these teachings could be true, to knowing without a doubt that they are true for my experience.
I create my reality 100% which means I can shift to any experience I desire 100% of the time.
I have the following quote from Bashar printed out on paper in big bold letters and positioned right above my computer.
I believe that I can easily switch to any parallel reality that I choose, since all realities that I experience are contained within my consciousness, and my consciousness alone.

I have released a ton of old beliefs that no longer pair with my current vibration by:
Simply choosing to relax and see passing thoughts as powerless. I just allow them to pass, almost like quick scenes in a movie. The more I "watch" passing thoughts, the more I discover about Self.
Long ago when learning about LOA, I got caught up in every thought, thinking they would "create my reality" immediately. Which led me to fear my thoughts, and that led to trying to control them often, thereby creating more resistance. Needless to say, that didn't work well.
As you allow thoughts to pass freely, you're less likely to DWELL on things, and as a result don't attract the unwanted--and you simply FEEL BETTER.
I also stopped obsessing about things I do want. I find it creates resistance as well. Just be easy about things. Choose to know that everything is working out for your highest and best good. We really don't have control over anything other than ourselves. So release trying to control outer circumstances. Trust yourself. I mean REALLY start trusting yourself. What will be, will be, and it begins with being Present.
Being Present = Relaxed feeling state = Less resistance = More happiness = Receptivity to seeing things differently = Belief change.
Questioning "why" I feel the way I do about the things I think, say and do. Just really being the "watcher" of my thoughts and actions. Ask yourself, as Eckhart Tolle suggests:
Simply put: Be Present.

My preferred most effective method for belief change is to go back to the truth. Once you know the truth about yourself, your belief system will stem from the truth. To know the truth is to view the world from your heart. When you are viewing from your heart you are able to identify the duality based judgements/beliefs coming from your brain more easily. When you identify your beliefs you can compare them to the truth, and either keep them or change them. Check it out, the truth isn't as mysterious as it seems. Ask your heart, do the research and you will find that the truth is, you walk with God and everything else is God, and it's all perfect. It's true, I Am that I Am, as above so below. Peace

Questioning my thoughts. The mind loves to weave stories but when you begin to question any stressful thought as it arises, the mind begins to open up enough to consider other possibilities.
Simply ask if you can know for sure that the thought is absolutely true...when done consistently you'll be pleasantly surprised at what begins to happen :)

I just invoke a paradox. You know how typically if you are dreaming and you realize it's a dream, that dissolves it? Well the same principal applies here. If you realize that you have a negative belief as well as WHAT said belief is, then logically, that cancels it out. Because if you've figured out it's a negative belief, that means that you consciously know it's false, and obviously you're not going to willingly hold onto a negative belief. So thus, if you determine the false belief, then by virtue of paradox, you've canceled it out.
However, for more deeply-rooted beliefs, it doesn't always work the first time around. You'll continue to think the negative thoughts just out of habit sometimes, and have to repeatedly remind yourself of the paradox. But eventually, you will finally whittle it away.

Well as far as beliefs in finding a partner.. I have a loving partner for the past 32 years that I fall in love with daily (or try too ;) )

When I find beliefs that I want to change, I convert it into one I want. When I say my target belief, it doesn't feel quite right, and sometimes like nails on a chalkboard. So I use Two Hands Touching to neutralize the charges associated with it. I feel better right away, but since life is still happenening, things get brought up again, so I keep doing it daily. I repeat each supporting belief every day in a 'THT sandwich' until one gets dropped off because I am seeing results or feeling better consistantly.
Also, I do general beliefs that leave reality wide open for infinite possibilites. Like, "I can do all things through Christ [The Universe, All that is, etc...] who strengthens me." This eliminates many unconscious beliefs that you don't have to work on individually. One of the most limiting beliefs is the illusion of separation. A good way to reconnect with people that 'bring you pain or frustration' is from Florence Scovel Shinn, "I am connected in love with everybody associated with _. Let the divine idea come out of the situation," and for individuals, "Salute the divinity in ____ and send him/her love." If I am having a problem with a company, I use both of these phrases. The first one for the company as a group and the second one for the individuals within the group that give me the pain or frustration.
You don't have to start with a negative belief. You can start with what you want and creating beliefs that support that. Florence Scovel Shinn has many of those also in the link above and in the links from there.

It isn't the idea of how to make belief changes as much as it is the way you understand, AND believe in, your own power, abilities, and loving yourself.
love,light(wisdom),awareness, 3 keys to happiness.
Once I recognize the belief in question I then ask myself if it's serving me or hurting me. I ask myself "who am I?" and "what do I really want for my life?" ,"is this belief working towards what's best for me?". I also ask myself what do I think would happen if I changed that belief.
