The Power of The Mind- Is There an Easy Way to Unlock It?

May 22, 2008
In this day and age of information, we struggle to cram our brains with all the information that we can. Still we often can't seem to unlock the more than 70% of our brain's capacity that we don't use. And people are making fantastic claims every day- claims that we can have wealth, happiness, fulfilling love, and abundance. And we can have this just by choosing that we want it, and using our brains more effectively.

I have been around the block a bit when it comes to tools to work with my mind. I have done yoga, meditations, and body-mind-spirit practices where I go in the body to access the mind. I have read Louise Haye Affirmation books and cards daily. I have attended 12-step programs and read wonderful books to instill new and positive ideas and thoughts into my brain. I have attempted, with some good success through all of these methods, to reframe the very thoughts in my head.

How often have you gone to a party in this, the' new age of enlightenment' and heard someone talk about 'mind over matter' or a way to increase mental power. If you're like me you nodded your head yes to the person across from you, while also thinking "Well, you can say it- but can you do it?" Or more to the point, you thought 'But can I really do it." And there may have been some frustration because you'd been working on that skill for a long time already. And if you're like me, you were probably not acknowledging your successes- but only how far you seemed to be from your goals.

If you are adventurous, you can take a life-changing course called The Landmark Forum. Here you will get to look at "mind over matter' from a very different perspective. You will delve into the question "What does it mean to be human?" You will look at yourself as a human being and see how your very 'self' was created. You can then dissect the process if you so desire to shift the very way you are, and become all that you want to be. During the process you will certainly look at how your brain operates, and when it empowers you, and when it (very frequently) dis-empowers you.

It has been said that the mind is a machine. It is a machine very much like a computer. When you input information into the mind's machine, the mind comes up with an answer. Unfortunately, sometimes what you put in the machine is intrinsically flawed information. Life gives the mind a scarring experience. Life gives it other people's words that cause pain. Life gives the mind physical and emotional trauma. Usually these events are not the average. They are not happening every day. But by their very oddity the machine that is the mind singles them out, and makes special note of them. It then outputs some negative thought into your brain that will stick with you for life- and may sometimes be so intrinsic that you can't even see it.

One has to wonder if the mind truly can speak to the very cells in your body. One has to wonder if the claims people make about the mind's power to cure all manner of diseases are really true. Can the mind cause you to lose weight effortlessly? Can you become a master at some unknown task overnight. Is it perhaps true that faith- your faith in your mind's ability- can move mountains. If we believe, can we accomplish a miracle? And truly, this level of believing itself seems to be a miracle.

There is a lot of speculation that you can skip over the hard work of 'mind over matter.' They say that you can give up your daily affirmations and bathroom books and simply train the brain in any direction you want- while you lay there and relax, and listen to a CD or tape. What a wonderful idea? They call this method brain entrainment, and I am told there are no subliminal methods to worry about. Personally I am inclined to give this method a try, and stop working so hard.

Brain entrainment is one powerful tool to increase mental power and access the power of my mind. The other tool is to do it every day until it sinks in. This may well be the true test of training my brain. And one that many of us need to pass- no matter which methods we choose.
