In many of my other posts I have asked this question, so now is the time to discus the subject of rewiring the brain.
Here we go…
Have you experienced being in a certain mind set, persona, or a way of being for a period of time? Do you recall what it was like before it kicked in? Well for some of you, it was along time ago, and for others it has been far less. But there was life before. Right! On that basis, we can say there is nothing permanent about where you are, what you think, or what you know; it is just how your brain is currently wired.
In my post Anxiety – Why am I so wired – Part 3 ‘The Science’ I delved into the science of chemical reaction in our brains and our body and neuron connections. For a moment, what I would like to ask you to do, is close your eyes. I want you to picture your brain like an old fashioned telephone exchange, with hundreds of thousands of cables. Somehow, all organised in such a way, that the exchange operators are able to connect every call.
Then a new member of staff, comes along and gets into a pickle, and all of a sudden a few of those cables get crossed, and Mrs Jones is no longer speaking to her son but the fishmonger who wants his delivery of salmon. Now until a supervisor comes along to fix this re-routing, there is going to be a bit of chaos. Not to all communications, but to selected.
Well, your brain isn’t any different. It requires every neuron to be able to relay a message to the next. But for one reason or another, certain neurons aren’t able to, as there is a deficiency or excess of a certain chemical ion or neurotransmitter. So similarly for a while your brain is not able to relay the right messages, store and retrieve information in the right way. This leads to chaos on a mind and physical level.
Now the key factor is, none of the cables or more specifically the neurons have been cut, unless you have had surgery and that is something I will discuss in a separate post. Therefore there is nothing permanent about this re-routing. So maybe the brain can be re-wired…to be continued in part 2.
