What if the language of our brain is movement? Some weeks ago we learned about the Mental Gym(ex.touching left hand to right knee) which activates both sides of our brain. Then we were introduced to the five step progression which includes movement each day. Just based on this information, movement certainly appears to be of prime importance to our overall well being. This is of particular interest to me since I have written about being a physically oriented person most of my life. Recently I came across or I should say, the information appeared in my email inbox (do not remember subscribing) about brain plasticity which refers to the brain’s ability to change and adapt as a result of experience. The good news is that these changes continue throughout our lives, so it is never to late to be what we always thought we could be. Which is why I am in the MKMMA and I am creating new neural pathways although a bit slower than I would like because I have to stop and chip off cement from time to time.
Some of the things we are using to establish these new neural pathways are using our attention to direct our movement as in the mental gym. Others are enthusiasm, imagination, dreams and awareness which we read about in the Master Keys every week. Interesting that we can have these ideas validated through other information that we come in contact with and funny how that shows up so timely.
Some weeks back we were instructed to read the foreword of the Master Keys. When I read it I highlighted one passage which is as follows: “Every thought brings into action certain physical tissue, parts of the brain, nerve or muscle. This produces an actual physical change in the construction of the tissue. Therefore it is only necessary to have a certain number of thoughts on a given subject in order to bring about a change in the physical organization of a man.”
This is very clear with nothing left to consider except getting to work producing thoughts of courage, power, inspiration and harmony. So Until next time, now I have thinking and moving to do.
P.S. One of the interesting points about our brain is that when we are using the same existing patterns, the first sign of this is boredom. Associative memory as opposed to frontal lobe activity.
