We think and do a dynamic impact on our brain’s health, impacting our attitude and, ultimately, our reality. Most people can agree that the brain functions as a primary receiver, organizer, and distributor of vital information for our body. It is made up of a right hemisphere and a left hemisphere. Colloquial wisdom says one side of the brain is usually more dominant than the other brain side. The right side of the brain is associated with cognitive skills. These skills are directly connected to our creativity, emotions, and intuition. Right-brain dominant people are usually the artists, innovators, the free-spirited people in the world. Conversely, if you’re primarily analytical and methodical, you’re said to be left-brained.
Yoga for the Brain
The most common method of keeping the brain healthy is by eating greens, which contain vast amounts of chlorophyll, a direct natural medicine essential for a healthy brain.
Another method of improving or maintaining proper brain development is through the practice of yoga. Yoga, although an ancient tradition, has grown in popularity in recent years. This practice connects the body and the mind – meaning it brings you to a higher awareness that your body can do anything you desire it to do. In some known cases, people have said they’ve been able to fly or levitate for brief periods (seconds in most cases.). For these reasons and many others, when the terms “mind, body, and spirit” are often mentioned within this context, connecting the spirit means transcending the mind to its highest form, described as your “God Self” or the divine inner you. If you will, having the mind, or brain, be the centerpiece between the body and the spirit, arguably can say that the mind is the most valuable part of the body. It controls both the physical and spiritual selves.
Have you ever heard the saying “mind over matter? Mentally, if you tell yourself you can do something, you will yield those results in the physical world, or you will become whatever it is you’d set your mind to becoming. This is considered the “Law of Attraction.” This Law of Attraction is essentially a commonsense practice that dictates that we invite into the world what we set out to achieve and what we allow ourselves to desire fully. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
Yoga, in practice, transcends the physical. It taps into the mental state of being. Within meditation, you consciously bring your thoughts to happy places, inviting them into happy moments, embracing love, success, or whatever brings you joy.
Positive word affirmations are also a great way to strengthen your brain. The act of speaking aloud with powerful words invites you to reflect self-empowerment and self-love.
Crowned Emperor of Ethiopia, crowned King of All Kings of the world, Haile Selassie I states, “Discipline of the mind is a basic ingredient of genuine morality and therefore of spiritual strength.” If humanity puts their mind into reviving the natural way of living, restoring unconditional love, and empowering mother nature, healing on earth would be inevitable and magical. As Emperor Haile Selassie also mentions, “It is only when the human mind is guided by religion and morality that man can acquire the necessary vision to put all his ingenious inventions and contrivances to really useful and beneficial purposes.”
