How the Economy Affects Your Brain
It’s a well known fact among the Mental Science community that chronic stress can actually alter brain anatomy. Stress (depression, fear, etc.) may cause specific areas of the brain to shrink in size. As the brain areas shrink, their functions (brain chemical secretions and electrical impulses) are altered. This anatomical adaptation to stress will ultimately affect how a person thinks, behaves, and reasons.In other words, changes in the brain due to stress, makes us less able to think of logical solutions to our problems.
In addition to the irrational problem solving capacity produced by stress, the actual brain cells will change according to your thoughts.
On every brain cell (spinal cord cell too) there is a covering called myelin. This myelin covering acts as an insulator for the brain cell’s electrical activity. The more insulation on the brain cell, the stronger the electrical impulse can be relayed through that particular nerve.
In the past 15 years, scientists have observed how the myelin covering changes according to different factors. Specific diseases (Multiple Sclerosis, encephalomyelitis, etc.) or injuries can decrease or dissolve the myelin covering. The diminished covering is what eventually results in a number of disorders or death.
One interesting finding in recent research is how the myelin covering grows or thickens on the brain cell, according to the individuals intensely focused thoughts. You will want to pay close attention to this part of what I’m sharing.
Since our intense thoughts (good or bad) cause an increase of myelin covering, which in turn causes a stronger thought to occur in the individual, this produces stronger POSITIVE or NEGATIVE thoughts. The determining factor is based upon what the person is choosing to emotionally think about most of the time.
Of course, there are many branches of science utilizing these findings and one of them is Quantum Physics. Quantum Physics is the branch of science that studies the elements of life that are smaller than an atom.
Quantum Physicists are observing how thought can actually make subatomic particles appear and disappear right before their eyes. It’s some of this information that my Mental Codes Book and The Progression Video are based. These two pieces of work explain in laymen’s terms how our thoughts are creating—good or bad—our results.
The bottom line is this, “Our thoughts do something to our lives.” If this is so, then, the stronger our thoughts, the stronger will be the effect on our lives. If you don’t change your thinking to have stronger emotions around the correct thoughts, you will produce more myelin and strengthen the negative thoughts instead.
As you strengthen, the negative thoughts, you will end up producing more negative results. Now, we have scientific evidence to this fact.
If you are getting emotional (negative) about the economy and how it’s affecting your life, you are actually strengthening the negative impact and preventing your ability to come up with logical solutions. Now, we have scientific evidence to this fact as well.
To change your thoughts has been a challenge since the early days of time. There are numerous therapies, drugs, and techniques that work to make desired changes. Although the person feels better (at least temporarily), we find limited, long lasting results. But, there are answers for you.
I will share some of these solutions with you in the coming weeks. Note: I’m not treating you, any condition, or rendering any type of professional advice. I’m simply sharing with you what is working for me and thousands of other people. What you do, or don’t do, with the information is entirely up to you.
Solutions to our current challenges and future will need to come from ourselves. The solution to any challenge always starts with the way we look (think) about it.
