Rewire Yourself

1609932229-03a6a63b340195b78aaa4672dc2c8ea4

We come into this world prewired and that wiring gets shaped by our family and the outside world. This is all good when our wiring is mostly positive, but when our wiring is pretty much negative… that’s not so good.

The good news is we can rewire our brains by how we choose to think. We are who we are, but if there are things we want to change about ourselves such as being happier, kinder, compassionate, and patient beings we can do that. It all just takes willingness and a lot of practicing in order to make rewiring possible. There are therapists, books, articles etc. out there to help along the way.

A good start is simply learning to be more mindful. Don’t be too hard on yourself when you slip back into your old ways. I do that more than I like to admit. I don’t like it when I slip back, but I remind myself that it’s my default wiring kicking in. Recognizing slipping back shows rewiring is developing and that’s good because you’re getting somewhere, and that’s what it’s all about.

Anything is possible if you really want it.

“Neurons that fire together wire together. You can rewire your brain for higher consciousness by focusing on love.” ~ Deepak Chopra

    • Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed it. Sorry to reply so late but you got stuck in my spam folder. This seems to be a problem some bloggers are having, so I guess we better check it often.

    Although they say about childhood brain plasticity, I think the adult brain is capable of amazing things, too. We can retrain our thoughts, adapt our perspectives, continually learn throughout life, become more mindful and stress less, make new neural connections… it’s all very exciting and should give us hope that things can and do change. Wonderful post! xx
