Your Brain Learns From Your Imagination
Think about the last time you watched a thriller where someone was being followed down a dark alley and you felt anxious and terrified even though you weren’t there and even though you knew it wasn’t real.
Think about the last time you had an unpleasant confrontation with someone and whilst replaying it to a friend or partner you experienced the same anxiety, the same anger that you felt at the time.
Did you know that your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between what’s real and what’s imagined.
If you replay in your mind an unpleasant encounter, experience or memory you feel all of the same feelings that you did at the time.
What if you could turn this around and have this work to your advantage?
Do you want to be able to eat only when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full?
Imagine yourself doing this.
Imagine yourself mindfully and carefully choosing foods that nourish your body.
Imagine yourself picking up your knife and fork and eating and enjoying these foods.
Imagine yourself experiencing the sensation that you’re full and putting down your knife and fork and putting the remaining food into the bin.
It's just like a mental rehearsal.
The possibilities are endless.
If you can imagine it, you can make it happen.
The more time you spend imagining these new ways, new positive behaviours, the easier you will find that doing it for real comes naturally.
Yes, it takes practice. No, change isn't going to happen overnight.
BUT never underestimate the power of showing your subconscious mind what you want to happen, the habits that you want.
Create new neural pathways, change old habits and reach your goal..
