I love synchronicity and that I ran across this information in the video below right after talking about this very thing with someone earlier today. If nothing else, listen to what he has to say at about 3:40 minutes in, BUT… I highly recommend watching and thinking about everything he has to say from the beginning.
He says that the research of Nobel Prize winner Eric Kandel shows that in one hour of sending signals through a neural pathway, you can double the synaptic connections in that pathway.
And that’s worth noting because the strongest, biggest connections will fire faster and easier than the ones that are smaller and not used so much. That means your thoughts will go down that path more often. And you may have noticed that what you think about and dwell on becomes more prominent in your life.
So think about it a minute. What kind of signals were you running through the wiring of your brain today? How about yesterday and the day before that? Was it what you do want your life to look like or what you don’t want your life to look like?
If you don’t like your life, then you have to stop reinforcing the areas of your brain that fire because you’re thinking about what you don’t like about life.
Change your thoughts, change your mind, change your life. The idea is really really that simple.
