Can I re-wire my brain?

Looks like it is possible! In his book, The Brain That Changes Itself, neuroscientist Norman Doidge writes about how “the brain can change its own structure and function through thought and activity.”

Much of our reaction thoughts stem automatically from our belief system formed in the childhood. Louise Hay, the author of “How You can Heal Your Life” says that our brain wiring is done when we are 3 years old!

Once our brain was wired, it could still be rewired. Here’s an interesting experiment that talks about re-wiring your brain in just 2 weeks!!

It’s a hi-fi gadgety experiment! I don’t know how to get all those gadgets yet. Till then, I can keep working on my daily sessions, barehanded!! :)

Ganapati: The God of New Beginnings

Mumbai has a unique vibration with it’s never-say-die spirit and creating new things. That’s perhaps the reason Ganapati Bappa is such a revered God in Mumbai. He is the God of new beginnings. So even if you have failed last year, this year is always a new beginning!!Ganapati Bappa Morya

While we say goodbye to Ganapati Bappa today, we look forward to him next year too. And I affirm:

My life is ever new. Each moment of my life is new and fresh. I use my affirmative thinking to create exactly what I want.

This is a new day. This is a new me. I think and speak and act differently.

It is a joy and a delight to plant new seeds.

Ganapati Bappa Morya.
