how the brain automatically and habitually works.
The ability to make our brain forgo its habitual internal wiring and fire new patterns and combinations is
how neuroplasticity allows us to change. »
-Joe Dispenza, D.C.
The good news is that our brains are not hardwired, as it has been thought until very recently. Scientists have now proven
that we have the ability to rewire and create new neural circuits at any age! The other part of this exciting news is that our thoughts can rewire our brain. Mindfulness helps us to be aware of our thoughts and to distinguish them from healthy to unhealthy, joyproducing to stress-producing. The longer we practice mindfulness the more quickly we will be able to turn a negative thought into a positive one. The more we do this, we lessen our automatic reactions that produce stress and suffering and increase reactions that produce joy, compassion, love, and equanimity.
It is a joy to know that I can change my thoughts and change my brain at any age and become a happier, healthier person.
