Ten years old, I grew a garden and sold my harvested product. I remember imaging how much money I would rack in and, the excitement of buying whatever new toy awaited my vast income. I planned the garden's spot and bought the needed seeds. I plowed the dirt and planted my money. I picked out sneaky weeds and watered the fruits daily. And at last, the bountiful crop harvested, I sold to family and friends. I did not become rich and do not remember how I spent the money, but I do remember the valuable lesson learned. You get what you plant! https://youtu.be/RvSlm4rASRI
Now let’s discuss a scientific term, neuroplasticity, in simple terms the ability of the brain to change continuously throughout life. Why is this PLASTICITY important to us? Because behavior, environment, emotions, and THOUGHT, can change our brain's behavior, therefore, changing our beliefs and personality. In short, if you’re unsatisfied with life, change your behavior, environment, thoughts, emotions, and watch the brain go to work for you! https://youtu.be/FUJDQ8H5Efc
How does this work? The brain cannot distinguish between what is real or imaginary. For example, if we play a scene over and over in our head whether or not it be true, the brain perceives it as actually happened and restructures the paths of the brain to work compatible with the thought. Thus restructuring the brain and the behaviors associated with the thought, whether good or bad for your physical, spiritual, or mental health.
In a scientific study, two groups were brought in, one given a piano and taught chords and scales to practice, the other group showed the scales and chords to imagine and play mentally. Both group’s brains were scanned and both group’s brains restructured as if both had physically practiced.
Within every acorn lies the possibility of a 100ft tree. So it is within our brain. Our thoughts are much like the outer elements of water and sunshine. The thoughts we allow the brain to run with will create! The simple truth is when we produce thoughts our brain goes to work building our thoughts and the behaviors and personalities accompanying them.
The surrounding environment, our family, job, health, finances, social groups are a mirror of our internal state. We must realize that our every thought carries the ability to produce a harvest. It is our job to create either good or bad. One can never be upset with circumstances but must recognize we help create circumstances. GOOD THOUGHTS EQUAL A GOOD LIFE...
