I’ve said before that the brain cannot tell the difference between what is real, and what is vividly imagined. Many neuroscience experiments have shown that very similar areas of your brain that process thoughts (I think I’m moving my finger), also process the actual doing (I’m really moving my finger). This is why vividly imagining relaxing or improving your body or your skills can be effective in helping you reach your goals.
We’ve also talked about the power of emotions, and how your body is the interpreter, so to speak, of the emotions formed in the subconscious mind, to let your conscious mind knows what’s going on.
And in the midst of all this awesome ability of your mind and body to work together sometimes signals get crossed and your body doesn’t correctly communicate messages, or your conscious mind misinterprets them. As in any complex piece of machinery, there’s always room for error.
Over the next few weeks we are going to talk about various examples of this. As it’s hard to distill some of this into 2 minute sound bites, the blogs may be a bit longer, but they will be interesting, so stay tuned! Next week we’ll start with emotions.
