The Mind Brain Connection
I am convinced that your brain will automatically cause you to follow and carryout any instructions it receives from your mind.
When I talk about your brain I mean the organ housed in your head that controls everything about your physical, mental and emotional being.
When I talk about your mind I mean your conscious awareness—yes, your consciousness is your mind.
I must clarify what I mean when I stated “Any behavior.”
We must recognize that we do have some physical and mental limitations. For example: I am 78 years old and 5’6” tall… I believe that I’d have a tough time holding down a starting position on a professional basketball team—I’m a little short and a little old. Some people have brain injury or illness and do not have the ability think to clearly or recall accurately.
Taking into consideration any true limitations you may have, I am convinced that your brain will produce any behavior your mind instructs it to produce. Well, if that is true, then I am sure the next question is: how do you get your mind to tell your brain how to act and feel. I mean, how do you say to yourself: I’m going to quit smoking; I’m going to stop eating so much and start exercising; I’m going to stop my procrastination; I’m going to stop being stressed-out and anxious; I’m going to get over my fear of heights; I’m going to get rid of being anxious about public speaking… how do I say any of these things and then have it all happen automatically? What I am saying is, let’s not create limitations that we don’t have by perceiving that we can’t or shouldn’t.
