There’s something called “experience-dependent neuroplasticity,” which is the constant creating and grouping of neuron connections in your brains that take place as a result of your life experiences.
From a very young age, your brain actually begins to anticipate what it believes is going to happen and it reacts based on these beliefs. This experience-dependent neuroplasticity can contribute significantly to stress, anxiety, mood swings and even addiction.
In 1949, Donald Hebb, a Canadian neuropsychologist coined the phrase, “neurons that fire together, wire together”. What this means is that whenever we think a thought or have a feeling or physical sensation, thousands of neurons are triggered and they all get together to form a neural network.
With repetitive thinking, your brain learns to trigger the same neurons over and over again.
So, if you keep your mind looping on complaints, worries and fears… on how life hasn’t turned out the way you planned, how you can’t get ahead, can’t find true love, can’t make enough money…
your mind will more easily find that part of your brain and will quickly assist you in thinking those same thoughts over and over again.
This process shapes your mind into greater reactivity, making you more vulnerable to anxiety, stress, worry, anger, self criticism, self doubt…
It’s time to take radical personal responsibility for your own happiness and success in life.
The No Complaining Challenge last week held so many insights that we’ve decided to do it again and ADD No Self Judgments – yes, that’s 2 ego puppy tantrums to focus on at once –
YOU CAN DO THIS!
Let’s all challenge ourselves to do this… go one whole week without complaining about ANYTHING – YEP, that means NOTHING…AND, no negative, unkind thoughts about yourself.
You will be training your brain to create new neural pathways and jump start your immune system…
Did you know your immune system is compromised when you are stressed?
And COMPLAINING & SELF CRITICISM STRESSES YOUR BODY, MIND AND SOUL.
When you feel like complaining –
forgive yourself and others
take a deep breath and
change your mind
You are a sovereign being and only you have the power to control your thoughts!
Get NEUTRAL to what’s happening around you.
Take a deep breath and look at the opposite of what a complaint or self judgment might be
The Ego Mind wants you in VICTIM mode – every complaint is your Ego Puppy sabotaging your power as a sovereign being.
This week, take RADICAL PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for all your thoughts
Here’s a quick video to help you become strong, empowered to forgive on every level so you can live as the perfect divine being that you are.
There is always so much love for you here,
Sandra and Daniel
