Neuro-plasticity is a real thing. Our brains morph and change according to our beliefs and the environment that we live through. What we permit our brains to think, the thoughts and the choices that we make with our minds, without a doubt will change the neuro-plasticity and structure of our brains – for better or for worse. Beginning our life of improvement starts with paying attention to where our attention goes, and where we give our focus and time each day.
What’s more, don’t let yourself be squeezed into the shape dictated by the present age instead be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you can work out what God’s will is what is good, acceptable, and complete.Romans 12:2
It can be very difficult and not recommended to just put our heads in the sand. The environment that we live in is constantly changing. It is dynamic. And every day there are voices coming to us through our thoughts of what others tell us that we should do, say, believe, what clothes to wear, even how to act.
These thoughts and voices in our head tell us what life should be like and what we should be doing with how we spend our time. It’s often easy to give in and listen to these voices, allowing them to dictate and take over our lives. We begin to morph into the belief system and become shaped by whichever voice is most popular inside of our head, demanding the majority of our time.
However, we have the unique ability to take back control over those voices, the power to not allow them to define us. We have the ability to say, this is not who I am. This is not what I want in my life. By taking the posture of stepping back and becoming observant of our thoughts and being aware of where they come from allows us to reframe our perspectives. Paying attention to this chatter helps us better frame and prioritize our time and mental focus.
Paying attention helps with Neuro-Plasticity
We can make changes to the structure of our brains. It is the process of what neuro-plasticity is. We are not wired the way we were from birth. Our minds are forever being molded and changed by what we allow our thoughts to become. So, Romans 12:2 of the Bible, in my opinion and determination, means allowing the universe, the Divine, our Higher Selves Source, whatever higher level of power you may believe – to bring that connectedness into our present moment awareness. When we say “yes” to this connection, when we say “yes” to this higher source of power, we are brought into the present moment awareness. We then have the power to determine what the direction of our lives will become.
So on this very first, Monday of 2022, as we are sitting through and thinking about what resolutions that we should make for life, take a moment of pause and really reflect on where you’re at. What do you need to drop that is not serving you? What should you embark upon to allow your life and your mind to be molded through the way that you deem best along with that connection to your source and your higher level of consciousness?
Now is the time to cement that affirmation inside of your head, as we embark upon a new year. In this new year, allow yourself to have much more success, happiness, fulfillment, and purpose. Paying attention to that connectedness of our Higher Selves brings you into a present state of awareness. Never allow the vision or the voice of society of the present age to dictate how you should live.
It’s time to live life on your terms. Let’s begin accordingly here in 2022.
