Everything, that you experience in your life is somehow tied into the circuitry of your subconscious mind and then made available to you in some way, or in other words, available to you as a tool to use in some way (either helpful or destructive).
It could be after you think about a solution to a problem for days and some bit of information that you experienced long ago eventually gets to your “reasoning mind” (more about this in other emails) and you come up with some great idea to solve the problem (normally much more subtle and even undetectable). This however is unacceptable if you are to live a life of limitless opportunities/reward/happiness because the premise suggests that you basically “become a victim of your environment” in other words you are not in charge but your environment is. This concept will be covered in future emails but first let’s understand the basics 101 of this magnificent factory between your two ears.
Your brain is a 3 pound organ (1- 4% of your body’s weight) that uses an amazing 25% of the overall energy that your body requires; every few seconds your brain destroys 100 million neurons (brain cells) and manufactures 100 million new neurons to replace them, for every thought there is a reaction in your brain circuitry, in addition to the reaction and in direct proportion to the thought, for its supposed (theoretical/hypothetical) benefit (perceived and believed by the reasoning mind), your brain will rewire its circuitry.
This mass on your head that burns about 25% of your daily calories has 100 billion neurons communicating with one another “electrically” and “chemically” in what is called “electrochemical” communication.
All these hundred billion neurons have wires called “dendrites” signaling other neurons. Every day you have 65,000 thoughts, 95% of those thoughts are the same as a day before. Your brain uses the same neurons or set of neurons and dendrites for repeated thoughts (habits) and for new thoughts other neurons and dendrites connecting those neurons to other neurons for signaling of information. Much of this wiring/programming sometimes causes you to do things that are counterproductive to your objectives/goals, such as procrastination, overeating, bad habits etc.
Structural change that your brain is capable of, where the entire cortical network of your brain reorganizes happens most when you enter the Delta state (sleep) more specifically a state called rapid eye movement (REM). Your brain wants to serve you, however often the messaging is confusing or unclear or without proper conviction or is filtered incorrectly. With the right messaging/programming the dendrite cabling can change into new healthy habits.
The old pathways/dendrites that are connected to old beliefs/bad habits/unproductive traits atrophy and are replaced with new pathways/dendrite cabling; whereas maybe for the first time ever, you are able to “engineer” you. Not your environment doing it, not the Advertisers doing it, but you being the person doing it, you being in charge, you creating you. You deciding/engineering the person that you want to be maybe the person you always dreamed of being.
Sorry if this was a bit more scientific the next coaching session will cover one of my favorite topics and the most powerful all the laws governing the subconscious mind and how to use this law/technology to excel at “all” you do.
There is no greater gift one can ever be bestowed other than the gift of making someone else’s life a little bit better. I hope you are enjoying the journey.
With great appreciation
