For hundreds of years, the mind-body dualism was widely adopted by many scientists and psychologists. Confirming that mental experiences are separate from body experiences.
The nervous system has two main elements, the central nervous system (CNS), which are the neural networks in the brain and spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system (PNS), which are the neural networks outside of the central nervous system. Neurons in the CNS communicate with neurons in the PNS and vice versa. Saying it another way, a thought isn’t just in the head, a thought is also experienced in the body. Body sensations (pain, temperature shift, twitching) are not just in the body, they are experienced in the brain as well.
The unconscious mind has within it enormous potential for change and is able to learn positive new responses easily as well. It’s a question of stimulating the unconscious mind through effective communication with it to create change.
If you want to affect change in your life at a core level then you will have to work on your programs that are held in the unconscious mind. There are specialized ways to make that happen.
By continuously being in charge of your own thoughts through directing your focus and using visualization, you can influence what programs the subconscious mind constantly runs. Do this often enough (and with enough emotional energy) then it will start to reprogram your unconscious internal representation and belief system. And when that happens you’ll experience change on a very deep level!
It’s very much a top-down approach. After all, it’s how your habits, behaviors, and beliefs were created in the first place. Remembering that your unconscious is responsible for;
– Preserving the body: One of its main objectives is the survival of your physical body. It will fight anything that appears to be a threat to that survival. So if you want to change a behavior more easily, show your unconscious how that behavior is hurting your body.
– Running the body: The unconscious handles all of your basic physical functions (breathing, heart rate, immune system, etc.). There are believes that the unconscious holds the blueprint of your body as it is now and also the blueprint of your perfect health. Rather than telling the unconscious what perfect health looks like, try asking it what it knows and what you need for better health.
– Is like a 5-year old child: Like a young child, the unconscious likes to serve, needs very clear directions, and takes your instructions very literally. So if you say, “This job is a pain in the neck,” your unconscious will figure out a way to make sure that your neck hurts at work!
The unconscious is also very “moral” in the way a young child is moral, which means based on the morality taught and accepted by your parents or surroundings. So if you were taught that “hitting is unacceptable” your unconscious will still respond to that teaching even after your conscious mind has rejected it.
– Communicates through emotion and symbols: To get your attention, the unconscious uses emotions. For example, if you suddenly feel afraid, your unconscious has detected (rightly or wrongly) that your survival is at risk.
– Stores and organizes memories: The unconscious decides where and how your memories are stored. It may hide certain memories (such as traumas) that have strong negative emotions until you are mature enough to process them consciously. When it senses that you are ready (whether you consciously think you are or not!), it will bring them up so you can deal with them.
– Does not process negatives: The unconscious absorbs pictures rather than words. So if you say, “I don’t want to procrastinate,” the unconscious generates a picture of you procrastinating. Switching that picture from the negative to the positive takes an extra step. Better to tell your unconscious, “Let’s get to work!”
– Makes associations and learns quickly: To protect you, the unconscious stays alert and tries to glean the lessons from each experience. For example, if you had a bad experience in school, your unconscious may choose to lump all of your learning experiences into the “this is not going to be fun” category. It will signal you with sweaty palms and anxiety whenever you attempt something new. But if you do well in sports, your unconscious will remember that “sports equals success” and you’ll feel positive and energized whenever physical activity comes up.
So you absolutely have the power to change your status by the way you think about it. There is nothing profound or mysterious about this, its a simple truth of life. Your energy is connected to everything and in this space-time separation, quantum physics clearly shows this fact.
How many times we had the experiences of being in a bad mood when it seems like the whole world and everyone in it are against us. It appears like all is happening outside us. But is it or did we create it?
What is happening when we decide to pick our mood up? All of a sudden, the things outside us seem to get so much better. If we can understand this concept in relation to a good and bad day, we can start by looking at the staging and setting our life.
If our life is often full of the bad situations wouldn’t it be fair to say you had accumulated many belief systems and thought that won’t benefits us?
We’ve got too much emotional addiction. Our brains are a fascinating mechanism. Scientists have proved that we create the structure of the neurons within our brain through thoughts.
We all literally create our brains depending on our beliefs system and perceptions. When we think negatively, our neurons relating to pain and misery will join with each other and wear themselves into a pattern of negative thinking.
The law of attraction allows us to realize that when we emit negative energy, thoughts, into the universe, we draw more negative experiences. Which of course means we have more justifications to keep thinking more and more negative thoughts. So it’s becoming a close circle.
We can get rid of anger, grief, despair, jealousy, antipathy or any other range of thought and feelings that simply not serve us and just keep us trapped and in bondage. The bondage that has nothing to do with our outside world. It starts within ourselves and we have the power to turning it around.
Our emotional results are absolutely reflected physically within our brains. If we have been thinking negatively for a long time, we have to do the work to undo the damage and remodel ourselves.
Science demonstrated that a positive thinking and change of a wrong perception will literally unveil the “negative coupled” neurons and cause them to reform “positive coupled” relating to positive thought.
The more loving, uplifting and more positive thoughts and feelings we have, the more neurons will become conjoined with this and the more positive results we attract in our lives. Our brain is a biologically sophisticated machine, that got this exceptional ability of learning and rewires itself.
We can succeed in that by learning how to control and manage our emotions and feelings.
