4 Magical Reasons to Love Your Brain

In law of attraction and positive thought circles, brains often get a bad rap.  It’s the “monkey mind” that we want to quiet. It’s good for keeping us safe and helping us remember to pay our bills, but not so much for helping us achieve inner peace and joy.  I recently found that our brains are a powerful force for manifesting.  I meditate daily and I usually start by sending love to each part of my body, never realizing I’d been leaving my brain out of the equation.  I sent love from my head to my toes but I never focused on my brain.  Then, I had an experience during mediation that was the most intense, love-filled moments of my life. Really. And it originated in my brain. I could feel all these lovely sensations coming from the one part of me that I had been ignoring. I had treated my brain as a computer that processed information for me, but didn’t give it credit for much else. I decided it was time to investigate and learn a little more about our brains and why my most neglected body part would shower me with love. I found some good reason to send your brain love.

1. It feels good. When we focus on love we feel good anyway, but our brains seem to really appreciate finally getting some care and they respond with sending us lots of good feeling emotions. You might not have the same experience that I did, but according to Neil Slade anyone can experience clicking their amygdala, two glands located behind on frontal lobes. Also, the pineal gland and frontal lobes are considered to be sites in the brain that activate in enlightened people, which Pam Grout tell us is just another word for being in alignment.

2. We learn faster.  The video below shows how using the brain to imagine performing actions can improve our skills faster than just practicing the skill.  The Russians found that gymnasts who visualized 75% of the time and practiced 25% improved faster than those who practiced 100% or even practiced 75% and visualized 25%. Visualization and mental training trumps hard physical training every time.

3. We manifest faster. Anything that creates feelings of happiness and gets us in our vortex, will make us manifest faster. I’ve had several instances happen this week.  I needed a mortar and pestle for some tinctures I wanted to make, but I didn’t want to order one online because I wanted to see the size and check it out first.  I forgot about it and the next day I went to Costco, of all places, and they had the perfect stone motor and pestle.  I’ve never seen them there before and it was only fourteen dollars. Score! Neil Slade calls it Brain Radar that allows him to easily find things he needs when his frontal lobes are activated.

4. We could experience ESP. Many people at the brain in experiences ESP without trying. TD Lingo, a brain researcher, found that he and the people who came to his retreat to focus on mediation and brain research experienced spontaneous extra sensory perception, even thought this was not their goal.

I’ve just skimmed the surface here, there is so much more out there about our fascinating brains. Take it from me, just spend a few minutes a day, thanking your brain and sending loving thoughts its way and you will receive great dividends.

I’d love to hear your comments and any expereinces you’ve had using your “brain power.” To prove it, I’m giving away one of my Angel Card readings (see service page) to one of my commenters during the month of May. I’ll put everyone’s name in random.org and choose a winner to be announced here around June 1st. Then I’ll email the winner with the details if I have access to their e-mail or you can check back here around the first and e-mail me if you’re the winner.

    What a great topic Michelle. I’m always fascinated with brain how it works and why. There are so many things we still don’t know, it’s exciting to think how much is left to discover.

    I love how you realized you forget about including your brain when giving out love. Thanks Michelle I enjoyed it. XOXO

      Thanks, Dawn! I think our brains are fascinating and I love learning new things about them. 🙂

    The brain is a wonderful organ, there is no debate there. The brain produces the chemicals that create the entire range of feelings. And if we accept that feelings are the ‘early warning systems’ for future events, then it figures that the brain must really know what’s going on. Yet, it is the ‘mind’ that is said to be storehouse for feelings. So the way it really works is that the brain sends a request to the mind and the mind sends the response to the brain which then proceeds to do the job.
    An awesome system. Thanks for the post – and Thanks to the brain, for making it happen.

      Rakesh, an awesome system indeed! Thanks for explaining that. I was wondering right after I posted this, if there is a difference between the mind and the brain and then you come along and explain it perfectly! Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge.

  • I really like this one. When I first started studying meditation and was doing breathing and gland exercises, my favorite exercise was the pineal gland exercise because I liked the idea of opening that spiritual center. Also the meditation process I was taught focused on the upper two centers in the for-head and top of the head both located in the brain. I have so many wonderful experiences focusing on these parts of the brain from seeing future possibilities to out of body experiences. I must say I love the way you teach us and remind us of the importance of our brain. Thank you.

      Craig, Thanks! I’m sure you know way more about this subject than me, but I love all that I’m learning about it, so I wanted to share. If people knew that amazing experiences that they could have meditating, they wouldn’t need to do drugs. It makes you feel good, relaxes you, improves you life, gives you mind altering experiences and there’s no hangover or side effects. 🙂
