Brain Meditation: Do YOU THINK Of Your Brain At Least 10 Times A Day?
Even putting aside the hackneyed (and actually erroneous) beliefs about how often men, especially ‘young men’, think about sex (and the appendages involved), how often do YOU think about other parts of your bodies?
Many of YOU, I know, suffer (alas) from fairly regular headaches — even those of you who are in your 20s (or younger)! That is NOT RIGHT.
I can’t remember the last time I had an headache!
I do not say that lightly and to be honest I feel BAD about saying that. But it is the trust. I can go for YEARS (if not longer) without getting an headache. And when I get one I PANIC because it is so rare and unusual. Luckily for I my rare headaches typically have to do with my very poor eyes. [Yes, life is a compromise. Life is a balance. I don’t get many headaches BUT I have very doggy eyes — or at least one eye.]
What do I attribute my lack of headaches to?
The incredible relationship I SHARE with MY BRAIN.
I start my day, before anything else, even before I open my eyes, by wishing MY BRAIN a sincere, heartfelt ‘Good Morning‘.
I talk to my brain — internally — incessantly. I ‘ping’ my brain at least 40 times a day.
That means that, on average, I consciously, commune with MY BRAIN, more than 3 times an hour during the time I am awake.
My BRAIN knows that I sincerely and truly respect it … pay homage to it.
This is how I meditate.
And PLEASE remember and respect that ALL PAIN you experience is created by YOUR brain!
I don’t think about my breathing, red balloons floating in the wind, flowers wilting or sunsets over the ocean. I just think! That is all that is required to mediate.
But, way back … 42 years ago (or more) … I made a pact with my brain. We work together. We are ONE.
So my brain knows me extremely well and I know my brain quite well.
We have a WONDERFUL, enviable relationship.
When all else is dark and bleak I have MY BRAIN — and that is ALL I need. I know my brain will get me through.
Yes, of course, I can get you there TOO.
You and I are going to do BRAIN MEDITATION.
This is how we start:
- First thing every morning you say “Good Morning” to your brain.
- At least 10 times a day, ideally 4x, 8x, 16x more times a day, YOU think of your brain. Just think of YOUR BRAIN.
More steps later. SMILE.
