Left Brain, Right Brain!

I’m sure you’ve heard of a number of expressions such as: “Self-fulfilling prophecy“, or “What you think of is what you get”, or possibly “What the mind expects to happen is what is realized” or “You become what you think”, and I’m sure you know that I’m a big believer in the connection of the mind and emotions to the body. I look at the physical part of me as a body and I also feel I have an emotional body and a mental/spiritual body. The 3 of them are always connected, are always linked to each other and  always  communicating with each other. There’s no getting away from it. Positive thinking can be hard work but the results can be mind-blowing (no pun intended, lol). And the more you do it, the better, quicker and easier it is to get those longed for results! Knowing a bit about how each side of your brain works can help, and I’ve included some positive thoughts to inspire you towards creating the you that you really want to be! The happy, healthy, connected and truly beautiful you!!

LEFT BRAIN: 

I am a scientist. A mathematician. 

I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear. 

Analytical. Strategic. I am practical.

Always in control. A master of words and language. 

Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers.

I am order. I am logic. 

I know exactly who I am.

RIGHT BRAIN:

I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion.

Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. 

I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet. 

I am movement. Vivid colours. 

I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas.

I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel.

I am everything I wanted to be. 

POSITIVE THOUGHTSYou become what you think!

I communicate with love. Especially towards myself. 

Every moment is a profound opportunity.

Consider how very fortunate you are. 

Give yourself the gift of being joyfully you.

Complain less, breathe more. 

Be a part of life not afraid of it. 

Make the choice to let go of negative thoughts. 

Let be, let go, let see, let flow. 

You are a walking breathing wonder.

You have a beautiful soul. 

Give thanks for another day of loving…and living. 

One more thing:

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?” Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.”

She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

Remember to put the glass down.

Last thing today…I promise!

A link that I think is informative and scientific without being too dry.

  1. “Positive thinking can be hard work but the results can be mind-blowing…”

    Indeed. It took me a full FIVE YEARS for it to become automatic and there are still days when I have to think really hard about it. Once I get back on track though, I’m good.

    I like the final bit too. Great blog.
