If a thought makes you feel bad, you can know that it's not true. Take any negative belief to inquiry and you discover that it never tells the whole truth. Just because you have a history of falling under a particular spell doesn't make it any less a lie. Once you see the lie, the spell is broken, and the negative self-talk no longer has any power over you. If those thoughts arise again, either replace them with positive thoughts, question them using inquiry, or turn away from them altogether.
