Role Play Sessions Help Build Confidence
by Dr Jill Ammon-Wexler, Personal Excellence Mentor and Pioneer Brainwave Researcher - Our Overlapping Worlds
We now know beyond a doubt that everything in the known universe -- from the 'physical' world, to our innermost thoughts -- is basically energy in motion.
Actually, our inner 'mental' reality and the world's 'outer' reality are an intimately interwoven quantum event. We are participants in an open and dynamic living universe. And we are actually living in two side-by-side overlapping worlds.
Sound strange? Perhaps. But if you view your thoughts and memories as 'energy sources' that exchange energy back and forth with the 'external' physical world, you're right in line with modern quantum physics and neuroscience.
Several years ago I had an experience walking on fire. The first time across the red-hot 15-foot bed of oak coals, a fist-sized piece stuck to the side of my foot. I knocked it off and rejoined the line. And interestingly, although the coal had 'branded' itself into the side of my foot, I had NO burns at the end of the experience.
Do you still doubt the impact of our mental energy on the physical world?
How We Create Our Reality
Today's PET scans let us 'see' the brain actively change and grow with each thought. The power of a thought can no longer be excused lightly as a metaphysical theory.
Each image of the 'outside world' forms and changes your brain on a physical level. From these images our minds then construct what we call 'reality.'
Your eyes don't really 'see' anything, They simply collect packets of light reflected off an object. Those packets of light are transmitted into your brain as electronic signals. According to your past experiences, your brain then interprets the signals and tells you what you are 'seeing.'
'So how does all of this tie in to creating prosperity?' you ask.
According to science, the 'real world' is made up of nothing more than vibrating energy. We now know that each person creates their own version of the world based on their beliefs, expectations, and personal history.
So...your personal 'prosperity' is determined by what you imagine, visualize, desire...OR fear and reject.
Enter the Mind
Viewed in terms of neuroscience, prosperity is a 'mental concept' in our physical brain. The mental concept of prosperity lives in the conscious rational portion of your brain. I'm sure you can give an accurate definition of the word 'prosperity' without becoming emotionally involved.
But if I ask you, 'What does prosperity mean to YOU personally,' everything suddenly changes.
In a millisecond, your subconscious mind briefly revisits your 2rd grade best friend comparing their family's new Cadillac to your family's Ford; or perhaps when you wanted a new bike, but were told to 'be realistic' about your family's financial status. Or being told you would never 'be truly prosperous' without becoming a doctor or lawyer
Where does this happen? Deep in your subconscious mind. And unfortunately, the subconscious mind does not respond to logical reasoning about how those old lessons no longer apply.
Does YOUR lifestyle fall short of your dreams?
If so, you can be sure your subconscious mind is the source of what's holding you back!
And the problem is, each time you 'revisit" one of those subconscious limiting thoughts, the neural tracts leading to it are physically strengthened!
This is NOT theory. This is hard, observable science!
There is only one way to overcome the subconscious 'stuff' that keeps you from creating your ideal lifestyle. You're going to have to reprogram your neurons (your brain cells) on a physical level
It there some fast and easy way to do this?
Nope! Let's face it, if it was, everyone would be living the life of their dreams.
But it IS achievable!
Your Brain is Either Shrinking or Growing
We now know that the brain is not the unchanging organ we once thought it was. It is actually 'plastic' and physically changes with each thought or memory.
When you think, perceive, remember or learn something -- chemical messengers are sent from one neuron (brain cell) to another. And if you think that 'something' frequently, or with intense emotion, the associated neural physically grows in strength.
If you cease to think or recall something (like a bad memory), the associated neural pathway begins to physically break down - and will eventually even become non-functional. Of course if that bad memory has attached intense emotions, it will take longer.
But there's something very important to be learned from that! Neuroscientists have found clear evidence that emotion strengthens the neural pathway holding any memory or thought.
Emotion can be a powerful ally in reprogramming your mind!
Harnessing the power of focused thought
Harnessing the forces of your mind to create your ideal lifestyle can be a truly exhilarating experience. So, assuming you've decided you truly want to create the lifestyle you long for, let's lay out a practice run:
- It all starts with a decision. That only takes a milli-second of time.
- Then you take a dramatic step (this one is life-changing). You get real with yourself and ask questions like: 'What IS prosperity to ME? Is it a financial state, or does it have less to do with money and more with free time? What am I willing to give up to create a 'prosperous' lifestyle? How will this look on a day-to-day basis? What do I have to change to achieve this?'
- Next you make a commitment to do whatever it takes. The more intense your emotional commitment to create what you want, the faster you'll get it! That's why it's so important to go after what you feel passionate about!
- Finally, harness the power of focused thought to begin to reprogram your neurons. Here's an easy method of getting started:
Every morning, get a 3x5 card and write a brief statement of your most important dream. Then on the other side list one *specific* thing you will do TODAY to move closer to your dream. This must be real, specific, and achievable today! Put the card in your pocket or purse, and DO that specific thing by the end of the day.
In only one month you'll be astonished at how your life has changed!
