The majority of people don’t know what strength they actually possess. We always think that if something amazing or inexplicable happens — in other words, some kind of miracle — it can only be explained as a random occurrence. This just shows that we’re collectively stuck within certain patterns of thinking: in particular the stubborn belief that everything in life is decided by external factors. We cannot accept that we can shape the world in which we live.
Scientific proof of this has been provided by Richard Davidson, a world-renowned neuroscientist from the University of Wisconsin. He conducted an experiment involving the participation of eight Buddhist monks whose brains were studied as they concentrated their thoughts on specific feelings such as compassion, joy, or happiness. The results surpassed all expectations of the scientists.
Brain activity in the left frontal lobe of those who were studied (which is responsible for producing positive emotions) outpaced the activity in the right frontal lobe (responsible for negative emotions) — something that had never been noticed when studying ordinary mental activity.
Based on the results of this research, one important conclusion was reached: it seems likely that the structure of the brain, like the shape of one’s body, can be changed by willpower.
This is what the law of attraction could be said to be based on. To make it work in our favor, we have to better understand how our minds and our bodies interact with each other. To achieve this, we need to do the following according to Dr. Davidson:
1. Make a real connection
We make new connections in our brains by knowledge gained through information, philosophy, and study. Each time we engage in learning, we create a new neurological connection. The memory sustains the connection, and by repetition the neurons maintain the science of awakening the relationship.
The law of attraction then works this same way. If every day for two weeks you spent two hours in meditation focusing on a single-minded thought, such as the best version of yourself or the happiest you could imagine yourself to be, you would then train your brain and wire it into memory.
By rehearsing this ultimate version of yourself, the brain will then register these thoughts and the frontal lobe will capture it, logging it into your memory bank, thereby projecting the person you are to become in the future.
2. Rewire your mind
It is proven that every time you have a thought either positive or negative, you make a chemical and create a chemical reaction within your body. This is because feelings and emotions are the end product of any experience, real or imagined; when we aren’t experiencing any new thought, we continue to feel the same way.
The longer we hold on to a thought, the more we maintain the probability of its future manifestation, whether it be negative or positive. If we are holding on to negative thought forms we can break these thought forms by introducing new and positive thoughts that will change the chemistry in the body. Yet, similar to addictions, the body doesn’t like the offset and lack of the chemical and sends a signal to the brain. This is why it is so hard to break negative thought patterns and why we continue to live based on past addictions.
So it is through our own thinking that we can change the chemistry in our bodies, allowing us to break these emotional addictions and free ourselves from repeating the same negative cycles.
3. Make sure your feelings are controlled by your thoughts
We exist in a society where the mind is the servant to the body, causing us to live out our own genetic destiny where nothing new will ever happen.
To manifest our own reality we need to remove our automatic programming and rewire so that our bodies become servants to our minds and not the latter.
For example, when you are feeling insecure you start to think about the way you are feeling. Then, you begin to feel the way you think, and feeling becomes the means of thinking. When this occurs, the mind becomes immersed in the body and you begin thinking as a body and not as a mind: it becomes your state of being.
In this situation you can’t think of anything other than the way you feel, and if you are feeling bad, then you are thinking bad. When we can break this loop of thinking and feeling, we can then start thinking as a mind, becoming a conscious being and elevating ourselves into becoming the creators of our own life.
When you change your thoughts, you really can change your life.
