Feel ~ Body Behaviours that can begin to shape your Future
The reason many people don’t manifest their destiny so is that most people's biology is for the most part is their past. And so if you're not being defined by the vision of the future some new possibility in your life you're only left with the old circuitry in your brain and the old emotions of the past. So the question then is can you believe in a future that you can't see or experience with your senses yet. But you've thought about enough times in your mind that your brain is literally changed to look like the experience has already occurred.
Now the latest research in neuroscience says you can change your brain just by thinking. So then as you begin to think about a new possibility and your brain begins to fire and new sequences and new patterns and new combinations and you begin to plan your behaviors and you begin to review in your mind mentally rehearse who you're going to be in your life the mere action of mental rehearsal begins to install the neurological circuits in your brain the hardware to look like the event has already occurred. If you keep revisiting that same thought in that same sequence. The hardware becomes a software program. Now your brain is no longer a record of the past. Now it's in fact a map to the future.
And if you were then to begin to emotionally embrace your future before it's made manifest in other words you're not waiting for your healing to feel wholeness. You're not waiting for your new relationship to feel love. You're not waiting for the mystical moment to feel awe you're not waiting for your success to feel empowered. That's the old model of reality of cause and effect waiting for something outside of us to change how we feel inside of us. And then when we feel differently inside of us we pay attention to whoever whatever cost that that's a memory. That's how we create associate of memories. But this model is about causing an effect which means you have to feel awe for the mystical moment to occur. You have to become unpowered in order to create your success. You have to feel a wholeness in order for your healing to occur. We have to feel love for ourselves and love for life in order for us to have love in our life.
And so then to instruct people how to teach their body emotionally how that future could feel like before it's made manifest. If they do it properly their body is the unconscious mind begins to believe it's living in that future reality in the present moment and they're beginning to signal new genes and new ways that begins to change their body to look like the event has already occurred. So can you then select the new potential in the quantum field infinite potentials in the quantum field and begin to emotionally embrace that future reality before it's made manifest to such a degree that your body is the unconscious mind is believing it's living in that future reality in the present moment and you're changing your body by thought alone.
Now if there's physical evidence physical evidence neurologically biologically chemically genetically in your brain and body to look like the experience has already occurred then relax because the experience is going to find you and it's going to come in a way that you least expect. M7: Now this is the significance of that. It has to come in the way that we least expect because if we can expect that it's nothing new. It's more of the unknown. It has to catch us off guard. It has to surprise us and it has to leave no doubt that what we've done inside of us produces some effect outside of us.
And when we can correlate the changes we've made inside of us with the effects we've produced outside of us we pay attention to what we've done and we do it again. And that's called Human Empowerment and I don't think there's a person in the world that's so special to be excluded from this phenomenon. So common people around the world right now are doing the uncommon because I think this is a time in history where it's not enough to know this is a time in history to know how and if you can combine the latest research in quantum physics with neuroscience and neuroplasticity and neuro and the chronology and psycho neuro immunology and epigenetics all of those sciences point the finger at possibility.
And so learning it is one thing as philosophy its theory it's knowledge it's analytical information but when you take that information and you apply it you personalize it you demonstrate it. It means you are going to have to initiate some actions.
And when you begin to change your behaviors and you can get your behaviors to match your intentions you are going to have a new experience. Now philosophy learning information creates new synaptic connections in the brain. Thats what learning is learning is forging new circuits remembering is maintaining them. But when you take that philosophical information and you begin to apply it to your life if you do it properly you should have a new experience and the new experience then through all of the sensory feedback from your environment begins to enrich the circuits in your brain. And when those circuits string into place the brain makes a chemical and that chemicals called the feeling or an emotion the moment you feel the emotion from the experience. Now you're teaching your body chemically to understand what your mind is intellectually understood. So we can say that knowledge is for the mind and experiences for the body and in that moment your own body and that philosophy you're embodying the truth of that knowledge and when you begin to up regulate new genes and down regulate old jeans and you begin to rewrite the program which means the book on compassion is no longer theory. You're feeling compassionate. The book on leadership is no longer philosophical information. You're becoming a leader. The book on a patient Perens is no longer just about some conversation about how you're going to be more patient. You actually feel like you're overcoming your impatience so if you're able to do that once then you should be able to reproduce it and if you can reproduce it over and over again the same experience you will begin to neuro chemically conditioned your body to know how to do it as well as your mind and when your body knows as well as your mind or the mind and body merge as one. Now it's innate in you. It's who you are. It's second nature. You've done it so many times that you no longer have to consciously think about it. It's become a subconscious program and now you're memorizing a internal neurochemical order that's greater than any condition in your external environment.
And that's when you begin to master that philosophy. So our job I think is to go from philosopher to initiate to master from knowledge to experience to wisdom from mind to body to soul and from thinking to doing to being. And we have all the biological and neurological machinery to do this. I think the biggest problem that stands in the way for us doing this over and over again and doing it really well is pretty much the hormones of stress and stress is when your body is knocked out of homeostasis the stress response is what your body innately does to return itself back to order. And we have three basic stresses we have physical stress like accidents injuries false traumas.
We have chemical stress like bacteria and viruses and hormones and foods and heavy metals and hangovers and blood sugar levels and then we have emotional stress and that's family tragedies loss you know job finances and all of those things knock our brain and body out of balance. All organisms in nature can tolerate short term stress pack of coyotes chases a deer if the deer out runs the coyotes. Fifteen minutes later she turns back into grazing. She goes back into foraging and grazing the stress response is over. But human beings you know we're so unique because we can turn on the stress response just by thought alone we could think about something that's happened in our past and we can worry about something that's going to happen in the future and by thought alone and we turned on those same chemicals and when you turn on the stress response.
And you can't turn it off now you're headed for some type of disease because no organism in nature can live in emergency mode for an extended period of time. So to answer your question if you can turn on the stress response just by thought alone and it's a scientific fact that the hormones of stress down regulate genes to create disease. Then it means that your thoughts can literally make you sick. So the fundamental question is if your thoughts can make you sick. Is it possible that your thoughts can make you well. Can you explain that meditation does and what happens in the mind.
So the word meditation literally means to become familiar with. So here's the old self. And here's the new self. And it's not like we just waltz over to the new self in a matter of days. We have to go through this transformation that takes place and if 95 percent of who we are by the time we're 35 years old it's a set of subconscious behaviors automatic habits emotional reactions beliefs perceptions and attitudes that function like a computer program that's 95 percent of who we are where the body has been programmed to become the mind. That's what a habit is.
And we're going to begin to change with the 5 percent of our conscious mind. You can imagine that you can think positively all you want but if you feel negatively because you've been feeling that way for the last 30 years mind and body are in opposition you could create the most fabulous dream board in the world with all the things you want in your life. But if you feel unworthy.
That's mind and body in opposition the idea then is to recondition the body to a new mind. So here's the old self and here's the new self and you're going to embark on change the moment you decide to no longer think a certain way to act a certain way or to feel a certain way you are going to step into this river of change because the hardest part about change is not making the same choices you did the day before. So we think 60 to 70000 thoughts in one day out of those 60 to 70000 thoughts that we think in one day 90 percent of those thoughts are the same thoughts as the day before.
Now the same thoughts always lead to the same choices the same choices always lead to the same behaviors the same behaviors create the same experiences and the same experiences produce the same emotions and those emotions drive our very same thoughts and our biology our neuro circuitry our neurochemistry our normal hormones and even our genetic expression stays exactly the same. So now there's a principle in neuroscience that says that nerve cells that fire together wire together. If you keep thinking the same way. Keep making the same choices. Demonstrating the same behaviors keep reproducing the same experiences that stamp the same networks of neurons into the same patterns.
All for the familiar feeling that you've grown accustomed to called you then you begin to hardwire your brain into a very finite signature and that finite signature becomes our identity almost like a box in the brain. There's no literal box in the brain but it's the most commonly fired neurologically wired set of thoughts behaviors and emotions that's acquired through frequent repetition. So how you think how you act and how you feel is called your personality and your personality creates your personal reality.
That said so then if you want to create a new personal reality and new life you'd have to change your personality which means you'd have to start thinking about what you've been thinking about and change it. You'd have to become aware of your unconscious habits and behaviors and even what you say and modify them and then you'd have to look at those emotions that keep you anchored to the past and decide if those emotions belong in your future. So most people try to create a new personal reality as the same personality and it doesn't work. We literally have to become someone else.
So the word meditation then means to become familiar with. So if you're sitting in a meditation and you're observing the thoughts that have been going on behind the scenes of your awareness because you've been too distracted by your external environment and now you're becoming conscious of your unconscious thoughts and they're becoming familiar to you now you're into meditation to know thyself. If you're becoming aware of your propensities and your urges and the body wanting to get up and do things and you're making it sit there and stay and you are telling it it's no longer the mind that you are of the mind and you're becoming conscious of those unconscious behaviors and they're becoming familiar to you. Well now you're in a meditation to know thyself and if you can look at the emotions that bring you to a lower denominator and notice them and not begin to experience them but to observe them the very act of observation means that you are no longer the program you're the consciousness now observing the program and you're beginning to objectify your subjective self. You were looking at yourself through the eyes of someone else which means now you're no longer the old self your pure consciousness observing the old self.
That's the first step in the meditative process. We have to light a match in a dark place and become so aware of how unaware we've been that we don't let any thought and the behavior and the emotions slip by our awareness unchecked. So then if you're sitting in a meditation and you say What is compassion what is a better way to be in my life. How can I turn my life around. How can I feel better about myself. And you begin to think about what thoughts you do on a fire and wire in your brain. You begin to review the behaviors of how you are going to live in this new life. The act of rehearsing the mentally begins to change the brain from living in the past to living in the future. In other words mental rehearsal is going to cause the brain to look
