Your consciousness is your Mind telling your brain what you want it to do.
However, oftentimes the Mind is not as good an employer as it might be and the brain has a lot of time to wander. If you were to add up the amount of time your brain has to wander from thought to thought and emotion to emotion, what do you think you might find?
Some time would be taken with events that we might consider negative and others might be taken with events we consider positive, but a large amount of the time would be spent on the brain just going from thing to thing to thing.
The brain has a lot of time to think up thoughts (which is its job) and a lot of time to go from feeling to feeling to feeling, unsupervised a lot of the time.
If you decide to tell your brain to go to positive feelings and to feel them, just a little, gently, over time, you will feel the emotions you choose more regularly and consistently and you will grow in an UpSpiral.
It’s as simple as that. Positive emotions, positive moods, and a positive consciousness take time, and it takes intent that builds upon itself overtime.
You are constructing new neuropathways composed of new neurons and cells that can reconstruct the nature of your brain, your perception and your consciousness.
Every cell in your body “hears”.
Not only do your cells “hear” music at the same level of your audible hearing, but your cells also hear what you are feeling and thinking. Every thought, every feeling is heard by your cells through sound waves and sensory transmissions that are audible to the sensory mechanisms of each of your cells.
Stop and consider this for a minute. Every minute of everyday, you are telling your cells how to feel.
How do you think that affects their health?
So what your cells assimilate and what they expel, and how they function in healthy or unhealthy ways is fundamentally and radically affected by their environment of sensory information. That information comes from your choices about how you feel and how you think.
Positive emotion is the most powerful anti-toxin.
Make the choices for love, peace, gratitude and joy throughout the day. Maybe everything isn’t going like you planned or expected, maybe there is a downer or two, but you can still feel these emotions on some level of 1-10 from just a little to more and more.
Can’t feel them at all, you say? Then think them. You don’t have to deny negative feelings, but you also don’t have to stay in them, live in them, or obsess over them. Let negative feelings be a signal to find something to be grateful for and start to pulse a little bit of a thought and feeling of joy.
You move in the direction that you intend to go –into an UpSpiral or into a DownSpiral. And your cells are listening to the choice you make.
What effect do you suppose this choice to feel toward the “good” has on the health of your always “listening” and sensory receptive cells, to each and every one of them?
