Before you start turning negatives into positives, you should know that it will involve some rewiring of your brain! You see, when things happen to us, we imprint our reactions and feelings, good or bad, upon a neuronet, or a network of associated brain cells. When you have the same reactions and feelings over and over again, the neuronet grows stronger, like mountain tracks that grow deeper from years of hikers traversing the trail. Once the neuronet is cemented in place, our brains think in a preprogrammed way, so we have the same reactions and feelings again and again—until we rewire the involved neuronet, that is. This is important because nerve cells that are wired together fire together!
The rewiring of a neuronet requires us to shift our perceptions. We must be able to examine things in a new way, and we must be committed to finding the lesson in every experience. This takes practice. The more we practice, the more we disassemble an old neuronet and hardwire a new one. Once this rewiring occurs and positive thoughts flow more naturally, we can cultivate a more appreciative or grateful state of mind. Out of this state of mind we give off positive vibrations that attract more positive experiences into our lives. Breaking through negativity by rewiring your brain ultimately leads you to the life you desire.
