The last 12 years in the neuroscience field has been one of amazement and enlightenment. Scientists call it “The Discovery of the Decade”.

What is this remarkable discovery?

Simply put, it’s the fact that your brain is constantly changing and creating new neural connections based on your environment, your thoughts, your feelings, and your experiences.  The old adage that “You cannot teach an old dog new tricks” has fallen by the wayside because we now know that you can you teach that “Old Dog” new tricks. Thus, you can release old patterns that have held you back from reaching your true potential. By using the newest discoveries in neuroscience, you can do it easier and faster than ever before.

It was once thought that when we grew up, our brains had a set number of neural connections that made us perform in a fixed way. According to the theory of neuroplasticity (or brain plasticity) you can introduce new thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that  actually change the brain’s functional anatomy, and even its physical anatomy, in 12 weeks or less.

The understanding of brain plasticity has roots in animal brain research dating back to studies conducted in the 1950s. These studies were designed to investigate whether environment had any effect on the structure and function of the animal brain. Researchers designed a study of rodents that were raised in two distinctly different environments: enriched and un-enriched.

The animals raised in un-enriched environments were kept in isolation and had no running wheels or toys to play with while the other was given the opposite. When the two groups of rodents were compared following autopsy, results yielded significant differences in their brains. The rodents raised in an enriched environment had a larger cortex, more cellular connections (synapses that help different brain structures to communicate better with each other) and the formation of new brain cells (neurogenesis) in the hippocampus (the structure critical to new learning and memory).

Today, we now know that it is the environment, and not our genes, that predict our future health and wellbeing. In fact, three new studies published between 2005 and 2008 showed that twenty minutes of meditation, positive thinking, relaxation, and mindfulness practice will actually turn on stress-reducing genes. How many genes are affected? 1561, to be exact!

 

The Plasticity of the Human Brain:

Many studies show that extensive learning of abstract information can also trigger long term changes in the brain: in the hippocampus (which is responsible for memory formation and recall), in the frontal lobes (where important decisions are evaluated and acted on), in the insula and anterior cingulate (which governs social awareness, empathy, and trust), and the parietal lobe (a key structure regulating alertness, consciousness, organization, and motivation).

In one study, brain-scan images of medical students were taken three months prior to their medical exam and right after the exam. These scans were then compared to students who were not studying for an exam. The medical students’ brains showed learning-induced changes in regions of the parietal cortex and the hippocampus. By exercising your mind, you improve the overall functioning of your brain, your performance, and your ability to succeed at reaching the goals you desire..

Even basic thinking can change the brain!

In a recent experiment, Dr. Richard Davidson compared a group of advanced Buddhist practitioners with volunteers who had been trained in meditation for one week. Everyone was told to meditate on compassion and love. At the end of the one-week period, two of the controls, and all of the monks, experienced an increase in the number of gamma waves in their brain during meditation.

When the volunteers stopped meditating, their gamma wave production returned to normal. But the monks, who had logged in more than 10,000 hours of practice, did not experience a decrease. The synchronized gamma wave area of the monks’ brains was also much stronger when compared to the activity in the activity in the volunteers’ brains. The monks also showed significant structural changes in many other parts of the brain which allowed them to feel compassion in even the most difficult situation.

When it comes to “Innercising™” your brain, Use It or Lose It!  And the more you use it, the more permanent those changes become.

Stimulating your brain through daily Innercises™ is essential for maintaining a healthy brain. As a 40 year longitudinal study from the Mayo Clinic proved, the “right” attitude will literally add two years to your life. Life satisfaction will increase, and anxiety will decrease. As the new field of neuroeconomics has proven, these same strategies can be used to enhance your capacity to earn more income or grow a business. Specific brain-enhancement Innercises™ have an impact on both your wallet and your health, thanks to the brain’s ability to change and be molded like clay.

When you stimulate your brain through new activities and specific university documented strategies, you can change the functioning of key areas in your brain by as much as 25%, and you can even change the some of the most important structures by as much as 10%. You’ll form new neural connections that will literally change the way your brain perceives reality. When you change these “internal” maps, old habits give way to new behaviors that will change the way you interact with the world. The result? Your outer reality will begin to mirror the dreams you created in your mind.

The neuroscientific evidence is definitive: When you change your brain, you actually transform your life.

1. Visualização matinal com EFT, se necessário

Ao acordar, antes de
encher sua mente com qualquer outra coisa, coloque seu desejo na frente dos seus
pensamentos. Enquanto ainda está neste ambiente quieto, apenas visualize tão
realisticamente quanto possível, seu desejo sendo realizado. Você pode encontrar
alguma resistência neste exercício. Pensamentos como, 'mas isto é muito', ou
'como vou conseguir isto?' são indicativos de que existem crenças limitantes a
serem neutralizadas. Eu uso o procedimento do EFT com minhas visualizações
sempre que possível, e eu recomendo que faça o mesmo.

2. Cerque-se Com
Seu Desejo

Traga consigo figuras do seu desejo. Crie uma colagem que
represente a essência do seu desejo e coloque num lugar que você veja bastante.
Olhe para a colagem com um pensamento em mente: "Isto já é meu." Se não usar
este truque, sua vibração estará levando seu desejo constantemente para o
futuro, porque você será uma pessoa cujo desejo está vindo. Quando você É a
pessoa que tem o que deseja agora, você irá manifestar seu desejo muito mais
fácil e rapidamente.

3. Preste atenção às suas emoções

Perceba
quantas respostas emocionais você tem e que não estão em alinhamento com seu
desejo. Perceba quantas vezes você fica zangado ou preocupado, e perceba o que
está atraindo naquele momento. Lembre-se de continuar usando EFT ou alguma outra
técnica de libertação emocional durante o dia, sempre que QUALQUER emoção
negativa surgir.

4. Aja com inspiração

Você atrairá facilmente para sua vida as pessoas e os recursos que precisa para manifestar seu desejo, e
se verá inspirado com idéias e ações a tomar. Você deve seguir os empurrões
intuitivos do Universo, mesmo que não veja a lógica em tais ações de como irão
levá-lo ao que deseja. Se estas idéias e ações lhe trouxerem alegria no exato
momento, são estas as ações a tomar!

5. Assista o desenrolar

O processo da Manifestação está sempre acontecendo, em cada momento da sua vida.
Você nunca para de atrair coisas. Ao conscientizar- se deste fato verá o
universo de forma diferente, e consequentemente começará a sentir-se estimulado
com as possibilidades ... que são literalmente infinitas. Enquanto estiver
mantendo seu desejo em mente – no exato momento – pode estar certo que tudo que
experimenta faz parte do processo do seu desejo sendo manifestado bem na sua
frente.

6. Sinta genuína gratidão

É preciso dedicar algum tempo
para entrar num sentimento de sincera gratidão por tudo que você TEM em sua vida
que lhe dá qualquer tipo de prazer. Vale até sentir-se grato pela torradeira. O
sentimento de gratidão ativa o processo de atrair mais situações que estão
alinhadas com seu sentimento de gratidão. Portanto, em poucas palavras, quanto
mais grato for pelas coisas que tem, mais coisas novas para sentir-se grato
atrairá.

One of the key concepts to creating wealth is to understand that money is not the goal. That’s right, I said, money is not the goal.

Frequently people will tell me that they want to make money.
However, I know it is not money they are really after. It is the things that money can buy and the freedom of time to do what they really want. While you may think this is an insignificant difference, it is actually the reason so many people never become wealthy.

Most of us were taught throughout our childhood that the whole point of making money is to sock it away and build our own ‘nest egg’. We think of this as a type of insurance against bad fortune, accidents or old age when we can no longer work. The wealthy know that money only works when it is in motion – not when it’s sitting in a bank account. You must understand that wealth is an ongoing journey of growth and circulation and if that circulation is stopped, then the flow of money will cease.

While it may seem that there are many roadblocks on your journey to wealth, the only real obstacle is what you believe, think, and feel about money. Most of us were raised with the cliché “Seeing is Believing” which is a skeptical and negative view of life. Still, we hear it our whole lives until it becomes a part of our thought process without our even realizing it. Wealthy people understand that this cliché is exactly backward – you must believe in what you can achieve before you will see it happen in your life. They know that “Believing is Seeing.” The only thing that separates a millionaire from you right now is a wealthy mindset and the foundation of that mindset is belief.

Does this mean that the wealthy have some special skill or knowledge? No – but they do possess some key characteristics that help them become wealthy.

The first of these characteristics is a willingness to listen to their own heart. If you could become wealthy by listening to the masses, then the masses would be wealthy and they are not. It is a natural tendency to ask the opinions of those we love or respect.
Unfortunately, we listen to their comments and biases not taking into account the results in their own lives. We make a decision to listen based on our emotional attachment rather than by looking at what they have achieved. How can anyone who has not accumulated wealth advise you on how to do it? They can’t.

A second characteristic of the wealthy is the ability to act when opportunities present themselves. Opportunity is often imagined to be something that you can’t miss or pass up. However, I know from personal experience that opportunity is often only a whisper that comes during some of the most trying times of life. If you read the life stories of very wealthy and successful people, you will frequently find they were fired from jobs, kicked out of school or dealt with significant personal tragedies that other people would view as devastating. Instead, they viewed the challenges as opportunities and prospered.

The wealthy also understand that wealth is an ongoing process. It is not a destination you arrive at one day and then stop. It is also rarely accomplished overnight – although it can occur in a short period of time. However, if you gain wealth before you have gained a wealthy mindset then you are in danger of losing that wealth forever. We have all heard of those that win the lottery only to be near penniless a few years later. Since they were never taught to think wealthy, they have very little chance of achieving wealth that lasts and ultimately they lose what money they have.

Those with a wealthy mindset do what they love – and make money at it. Often I see individuals who are seeking wealth like it’s something outside that they have to search for. In reality, wealth exists within you. You have activities and hobbies that you love and you can make these into your business if you choose to. Those who are successful and create a great deal of wealth do so because they are doing something they love. The money follows and is just a logical result of them realizing their dream. Money is not the dream.

Whether you grow up in the worst circumstance or have every advantage, you have the exact same potential inside of you to create the life you want. No matter how many times you read or hear someone talk about how to become wealthy, your life will never change until you believe that it can – Believing is Seeing.

To your success,


Bob Proctor
