Yes, our brain has been placed above everything else physiologically. It is on top most of our being, in the head. That most often during childhood we hear elders say “use your head” when we are lost of what they want us to do. True that we have to use the brain to know what must be done, but there are times that we let our mind go beyond to the point of being controlled by what we think. With this it can be an advantage or a disadvantage. If we invite positive energy and it helps us, then well and good. But if it does not help us instead pull us down with the negativity of our thoughts then we have to STOP and ask ourselves “how does the brain work” and make it work to our advantage.
Have you heard of someone being sick and given the observation that it is just psychological? This happens to a lot of sensitive individuals. They feel a little low, probably due to certain emotional distress, and end up getting sick. They get to thinking they are sick, they are low, they are affected and soon they do feel really sick. They let their brain rule over them. It’s also the same as when a professional who is very good at what he do was asked to give a speech about the job he do everyday just could not remember them when affront the audience just because he is not a “crowd person”. He let his brain rule over him, he panicked, he froze, or what Burt Goldman call it, “he got stuck”. If you think it through, it is all related to our emotions…to what we feel. The professional is scared of people and so affects his ability to think straight unlike when he is on his safe ground, back to work and routine.
This is how I got inclined to read about “How the Brain Works And How To Make It Work When You’re Stuck”. It talk about the states of the brain within the cycle: Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta. Beta being the state we are in when awake, with all the senses and the emotions; and Alpha is the state of being half awake like during meditations where we can most use our mind without being in the emotionally charged state therefore we can maximize use of it and discover our greatest potentials.
Let us rule our life by using our brain, and not let the brain rule our life. But we just have to know how to have the ability to do so. Hear the advice of Burt Goldman of Quantum Jumping as I did and let me know what you think.
