Our AMAZING Brain
Our AMAZING Brain.
I learned some things about this amazing piece of our anatomy that we all assume is pretty much doing all of the thinking of our lives in this human body that is only a temporary vessel for me. I decided to RE-POST today…the following post was written by me in November of 2015! This was a year before our book was published and another year before RECONNECTIVE Healing found me!! But, now I realize how TIMELESS all of this information really is… ENJOY old and timeless wisdom!
During my Near-Death Experience (NDE) I was thinking logically and processing information and yet I was not in my body. I was looking down on a lifeless body. I was in no pain or stress. I was absorbed in total love wrapped in brilliant white light. But I came back with the startling KNOWING that our minds work separately from our bodies. I have spent years now researching and processing as much information as I could about the human mind. I was beginning to ask tough questions. Is the mind somehow separate from the brain?
I assume my brain was still in my body below, and yet…I was thinking logically creating memories that are as vivid today as they were 33 years ago. I was absorbing knowledge shared through God’s love. The mysteries of our universe and how they affect our belief system are still an ongoing journey for me. God sent Jesus to give us some very powerful messages about how to live a life full of LOVE for all. God created us with a brain that is very complex and intriguing.
I have been profoundly influenced by well-educated human beings who have experienced Near-Death and are speaking out about their experiences. I have read countless journeys of persons passing into another realm. Many speak of the same love-consuming white light and are speaking of being in Heaven talking with relatives that have passed on into the next life. In our book, The Light GAP: G~od’s A~mazing P~resence, I will be sharing highlights from many NDE accounts and how they have influenced my ability to “come out” and speak of my own experiences. Fear of being different had kept it all inside…that made inner peace impossible!
Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D is a Harvard trained brain scientist who recounted a unique journey in 1996. She experienced a massive stroke in the left hemisphere of her brain. She observed her mind deteriorate to the point that she could not walk, talk, read, write or recall any of her life. It took her 8 years to recover. Most people never recover from this type of stroke. She is now the national spokesperson for the Harvard Brain Tissue Resource Center (Brain Bank) and one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2008. As a brain scientist she was able to process, understand concepts and relate them to the common person like myself who are seeking answers about the brain that cross over into the spiritual world.
She gave astounding descriptions of how her mind was working, analyzing, figuring things out when to all outward appearances she was “not there.” If you’ve ever experienced someone having a stroke or visited a person who could not communicate with you at all after a stroke, this book is a must read!! Marj and I were with our father when he suffered a stroke right in front of us while eating in a restaurant. But, this book is a more recent find for me, having read it early in 2014. I would have recognized Dad’s stroke so much sooner had I read this book! I have learned so much more about how the brain operates reading her words. I found I could make some startling connections to concepts I learned during my NDE.
In her words; “I realized that the blessing I had received from this experience was the knowledge that deep internal peace is accessible to anyone at any time. I believe the experience of Nirvana exists in the consciousness of our right hemisphere, and that any moment we can choose to hook into that part of our brain.” “Your body is the life force power of some fifty trillion geniuses. You and you alone choose moment by moment who and how you want to be in the world. I encourage you to pay attention to what is going on in your brain. Own your power and show up for your life. Beam bright!” Her insights fed what I already knew about healing from my own experiences.
This “place” she is referring to in our brain can be accessed. Learning how can be difficult. I have experienced the incredible peace she talks about so freely almost on a daily basis now; it allows me to connect to the voice of God. He is there inside of every one of you waiting patiently with unconditional love.
In our Health and Healing workshop I will share how after living with a diagnosis that was attacking every area of my body, I needed to listen to God. Long after I healed, I recognized what I had done to help in my own healing. All along I had been ”hearing” when I went to this place inside of me. The divine was orchestrating it all…step by step and letting me know what to do next. Doctors, information, books, divine words all coming together. My life changed when all of the neatly woven threads came together. It brought INNER peace and outward HEALTH. This journey of about 4 years is what brought me “out” of my shell. I now was experiencing an unquenchable desire to write it all down in our book!
Come join the journey by signing up to receive e-mails from us as new BLOGS are posted! We will be updating information as we have more information about out book!
**** END of repost. 2015 is now a full six years ago. What a journey!
Oh my goodness, life has changed in huge leaps for both Marj & I since that time. My healing practice is now a big part of my life and my understanding of the brain has expanded in a very large way. I hope you take a GOOD look at the image of the brain showing all of the connection pathways in the whole UNIVERSE, not just within the confines of our physical brain. The writing of our book opened many pathways, but so has living every day life with a totally open mind to receive new information.. If you are wanting to OPEN that doorway of understanding some of the thoughts that live in YOUR brain…a healing session can open that pathway for you. The book mentioned above, My Stroke of Insight is still SO VERY significant to all of us. Jill Bolte Taylor now has so much out on YouTube…she is really worth the time to listen to her speak . Here is only ONE of her many TED talks, you might enjoy hearing them. Click here to hear one of them. She also has a new book which I am anxious to read because I respect her so very much. We will let you know what we think of it soon!
CONNECTIONS…wisdom full of light and information! YOU are a beautiful part of those connections! LOVE is the answer…
