Am I growing? Can I discern between essentials and non essentials? Is life a patchwork quilt of meaningful work, play and memories? Are each of us wired differently?
Growing Neurons by Joel P. Bowman, Ph.D. (SCS Newsletter, Oct. 2010) asserts that we grow neurons by continuously learning new tasks. This makes the brain "bigger" and thus more flexible to make wise choices in an ever expanding abundance of technology, connections, and information. "Neurons are instrumented in an incredibly complex way....'What fires together wires together.' "
I am "growing" right now as I spread out copious notes in front of me in random and unplanned chaos and begin to cut and paste my thoughts and images into left brain coherence of writing and organizing. My electronic scrapbook blog helps me to do this in a fun and creative way, growing neurons! Facebook connections teach me new tasks totally not on the radar last year. My grandchild encouraged me to join these social networks, "Imagine!" Creative "Green" play is growing larger to include more confidence and expansive outreach.
Think Green, Live Green, Love Green!
Dr. Caroline Leaf, a neuroscientist, pictures growing new pathways in the brain "magic green trees of the mind." Neurons fire at 400,000 billion actions per second. Dr. Leaf feels forgiveness and faith are essential to re-wire your brain's positive growth. We can change our brain's chemistry to receive love and wholeness. "Love grows trees," Dr. Leaf believes. Thought is reality. "Thought travels faster than the speed of light," Shirley MacLaine, Out On A Limb.
Clear out your mental forest by cutting away dead wood (toxic thoughts, speech and actions.) Picture your brain lit up with new green growth, healthy young trees! Reprogramming our wiring can be helped by the study and practice of NLP(neurolinguistic programming). NLP teaches us to use words and thought patterns, reprogramming positive intent for ourselves and others. Blending NLP with energy medicine and the intuitive process are all a part of Subtle Communication Systems (*SCS-Matters). Grow new leaves every time you speak and think. "See" a lush green forest in front of you.
Growing new thoughts are like trees leafing in the spring, an explosion of green is happening right now outdoors and "indoors." Judy adds, "When you think positive thoughts, you change the positive charge of the universe for the better." Green love rays expand from the Heart Chakra, opening and connecting you with Heaven and Earth.
"Sometimes when Daniel Jimenez closes his eyes at night, a galaxy of star-like florescent green spots appears against the pitch-black screen of his mind," (Pitt Magazine, Winter 2010). Jimenez, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Pittsburgh, studies neurons. New neurons can be generated in a few areas of the brain. Research by many specialists world wide may help people reprogram their brain's new growth for increasing memory, physical vigor, mental flexibility, and intuitive process.
Each of our brains works uniquely to receive and process information through different pathways. An artist first receives information in the "picture" part of the brain in froms of spontaneous black and white or color images, slide shows, or movies, clearly detailed or impressionistic, sleeping or waking. Temple Grandin, diagnosed with severe autism as a child, overcame this diagnosis and wrote a book, Thinking in Pictures.
Growing A Green Family Tree
We can change our own brains and rewire them to even heal our DNA and reprogram the DNA of our ancestors. Recently I worked through The DNA of Healing book by Margaret Ruby, an amazing event and learning experience! Use your brain's neuroplasticity plus thinking "I am here and in perfect health now" and "all accomplished already" as plus tools for reprogramming. Genes are pliable, turning on desirable characteristics in behavior and health. "As a man thinkest in his heart, so is he." Any age person can change brain growth!
Shirley MacLaine in her new book, I'm Over All That, feels that "Fear is the most powerful weapon of mass destruction." Fear is a learned (conditioned) response. Whisk away fear of past/present/future as you clear your timeline and infuse it with positive radiant love energy.
"Perfect Love casteth out fear." Author and mystic Albert Payson Terhune wrote about his Sunnybank collies' unconditional love repeating these Biblical words in his dog story books. Sometimes I feel again the invisible presence of my silver blue merle collie Sky as I walk the beach or write. Terhune felt his invisible companions too. Tune in happy living memories as you neutralize fear. Receive and give love with a grateful heart. Picture yourself walking in divine glory light, what color or colors do you see and feel? Who is with you, visible ot invisible?
Typing these words about the Terhune's collies triggered this image: I hear again the ancient Biblical language my Grandma reads to me as I sprawl on the soft patterned oriental carpet, drawing dragons with crayons on white paper tablets. Sunlight filters in through stained glass windows and sprinkles upon the rug and me. "Rewinding Time" is right here right now, a happy visual living moving picture.
The Ties That Bind
In her book, Light Emerging, Barbara Brennan speaks about colorful cords that grow from people's chakras and reach out and attach to love ones' cords, "heart strings." Cords may be torn or damaged, "broken hearted." Barbara believes it is possible to regenerate healthy, flexible, bright colorful cords infused with love. Sometimes a trained therapist is needed to clean and untangle the cords, free embedded cords, and help to grow new healthy cord relationships.
Climb A Green Mountain
Tai Chi ("Supreme Ultimate") and Qigong ("Energy Mastery") help grow new neuron trees because these integrated exercises involve learning a sequence of synchronized interconnected movements. Tai Chi helps your memory. Some Tai Chi forms are practiced with choreographed music themes. Music and form connected step up new learning processes in the brain. In Tai Chi group practice, we relate to our Tai Chi family and feel more positive dimensions of thinking and sharing. Rob feels in group Tai Chi, "Our energy (qi) rises exponentially."
Part of the Chinese character for "Chi" in Tai Chi means a tree connecting Heaven and Earth. The Chinese character for "Qi" (energy) in Qigong contains the image of rice cooking slowly, simmering in a pot, a nourishment over time. Pictures embedded in the poetic classical Chinese written and spoken language paint beautiful images since ancient times.
"Our thoughts are very important and powerful especially now. There are good chances that wonderful changes are coming. It all depends on us and our thoughts. The future is not written in stone. We are creating it right now. Raising our vibrations is important," Bill Homann.
