Change Your Brain Change Your Mind ~ Yes Literally
4th August, 20090 Comments
Brain scans have show that each part of the brain is allocated a job and Neuroplasticity, or brain plasticity is a relatively new science which proves that we can train the brain to develop in ways we wish it too by actually doing something more or even just thinking about it.
Experiments have shown that the neural pathways ( or brain maps) built up during thought are just a powerful as those built up during actual activity.
So if you imagine you can’t do something then your brain will believe that you can’t and you won’t be able to. However with practise or using hypnosis, NLP or visualisation new neural pathways can be built up which are more productive for the individual. What messages and therefore beliefs are you giving your brain?
