Why brain work is so important
There is a magic to our thoughts. We think we get up in the morning and do our best to fulfill our dreams, but often we fail. We get frustrated and feel like life is a burden. Here is what is important: Life is a gift, treat it well and you will enter a stage that you would have never dreamed possible. The key is your own thoughts. The only obstacles are your own doubts, disbeliefs and your fears.
Take responsibility - Empower yourself
We often have the feeling of being unable to change things in our lives, but we have far more influence in our lives than we think.
How does life function?
Fortunately, it is pretty simple. Everything we do is triggered by our thoughts. So we have to control our thoughts.
Thoughts are materializing – everything we are is the result of our thoughts
How do I start?
Firstly, we have to stop complaining and blaming others and the circumstances for things that happen to us. Don’t complain about things that come your way. Instead, try to understand them and what they mean. Every incident that happens to us is a piece of the puzzle of our pathway.
Secondly, love and accept yourself. You only can love others when you love and accept yourself. That does not mean being selfish, the opposite is the case. Don’t ask yourself how you can take advantage of a situation, ask how you can support others instead of what is in for me.
Thirdly, we have to find meaning in life. While this is especially difficult for most younger people, it is very important to feel a sense of purpose within yourself. Look for activities that trigger your passion. Once we see clearly our destiny it seems effortless to define goals and achieve them.
Be present, observe and ask yourself constantly and unconditionally: how can I support others?
The key to reaching objectives is to know what you want. Find a rational reason to change, contemplate and imagine the stage as if you would already have what you want and then let go. Letting go sounds counterproductive, but letting go does not mean forgetting. Letting go means keeping your goal in mind while avoiding constant inner dialogs. If you let go and live in the present moment you will find signs at every corner that will help you reach your target. Living in the moment means observing, not demanding. Living in the moment means learning from the past and trusting in the future.
What does this mean? Learning from the past is essential, but the past cannot be undone. We can learn from the past but we have to accept the past as it is. Inner dialogs, over and over again, about happenings from the past will not get you on track, it is a waste of energy. You have to let go of the past.
Trust that your thoughts will materialize in the future
Once you detach yourself form the past and every future outcome you will overcome and lose your fears. Our fears are a big show stopper. For everything you want in your life you will find a thousand reasons why it will not happen, because of your fears. Once you contemplate what you want, let go and live in the present and your fears will vanish.
Most fears got imprinted during our childhood, and over the years they grew bigger and bigger and can be a big obstacle in our lives. One of the most dangerous sources of fears can be the media. By watching TV, especially the news, your fears get fed. The amount of good news has vanished over the years, bad news sells. It is your decision how you feed your brain, but daily high dosages of negativity will make you sick. It is not only clogging your brain and distracting you from your goals, it will make you more fearful, will create disbeliefs and memes. Richard Brodie, “Virus of the Mind”, explains that memes (e.g. advertising commercials) are working with the same pattern as computer viruses, manipulating and clogging your brain negatively. Use your spare time to elevate your life. Be selective about how you feed your brain. It is a precious think tank!
Don’t believe everything you think
A very helpful tool to put yourself on track and in the right vibration is meditation. In the next chapter you will get an idea how meditation works and where to start.
The importance of meditation
One of the most overlooked tasks is to give our brain rest, regularly. Some find it in a deep meditative stage, some find it in yoga, and some in sport: the situation where you simply don’t think about anything or being 100% in control of your thoughts. For most this is far more difficult than it sounds. Try it: think nothing for 3 minutes!
why we need to relax the mind
Meditation frees us from earthly conditions and attachments. It allows our mind into a higher conciseness by bringing a peaceful blissfulness in our heart and soul that can only be found through meditation.
By meditating daily you get in touch with the universe, experience light, love and inner peace which we share with all that we come in contact with. We keep the energy flowing through our vessel by meditating daily.
It is important to be dedicated to the practice of meditation to receive the benefits. It is best if you can meditate for 20 to 30 minutes at the start of your day, and again for the same amount of time at dusk. Once you start to feel the deep peace and inner joy it brings, it will become an important part of your daily routine that you will look forward to.
You may not feel immediate results. It’s like planting a seed tending to the soil and watering it daily. You watch it and nothing happens, but you keep nurturing the seed, and then one day a magnificent flower blossoms.
Keep meditating and one day the light will enter your vessel. It will open your mind to unlimited possibilities and creativity. You will feel the universe through love, peace and joy. It will change your life. You will find purpose and transform your challenges into blessings. You will see the goodness in others and make a difference in the world.
Meditation can free you from your doubts, worries and fears and can play a significant role in improving your situation if you suffer from depression.
Yes, meditation is that powerful!
The natch teams favorite books
The monk how sold his ferrari
A good way to start your spiritual journey. Written by Robin S. Sharma in breath-taking speed this story tells the life of star advocate Julian who leaves his life behind to explore other regions of the planet. In the mountains of the Himalaya he literally transforms into a different person. A good example that everything can happen. It is all in our hands.
Excuses be gone
Some say spiritual books are usually a great read, but after a few weeks everything is forgotten and the message lost. Not with Dr. Wayne Dyer! His books are legendary, especially “Excuses be gone”. It is a bible for daily life. You pick it up and read a chapter which is exactly what you needed to hear right at that moment. This book is magical and a must have.
Virus of the mind
Richard Brodi gives a good round up of how our brain is working. In a very extraordinary and provocative way he explains how we are manipulated, especially thru modern technology and media. He addresses how our brain processes all the negative and manipulative messages. He explains how these memes (e.g. half-true stories of the media and advertizing campaigns) follow the exact same pattern as a computer virus.
Biology of believe
Anyone who wants to understand how our brain works in even more depth, this is the book to read. Bruce Lipton gives a comprehensive understanding of how a belief is technically possible in our brain. He shows that our beliefs, true or false, positive or negative, affect genetic activity and actually alter our genetic code. Interested folks will hold their breath and read the book in a weekend or less.
