Understanding how the mind works is critical to attracting and enjoying abundance, wealth, prosperity, and affluence.
The part of your brain that you are aware of is your Conscious Mind. On the flip side of the token, pertaining to your brain, of course, is the Subconscious Mind-the part of your brain you are unaware of.
The Mind and the Brain are two different things:
- The Brain is the three-pound organ in your head. It is tangible.
- The Mind is something larger and more elusive. It is intangible.
The Mind works through the Brain, which is why brain health is so important. You must take care of your brain and feed your brain the nourishment it requires, such as oxygen, minerals (especially Potassium), vitamins and B-vitamins, and trace elements to name a few.
States of Mind
Science has discovered that there are four states of mind: Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta.
The Alpha state is characterized by a brain wave frequency of 8 to 13 cycles per second (cps). We naturally go into the Alpha state many times each day, but usually only sporadically and fleetingly. We call it daydreaming. It is known as the meditative state – a state of relaxed, focused concentration. When we are in the Alpha state we lose track of linear time.
The Beta state is our normal waking life state and is characterized by a brain wave frequency of 14 cps to 100 cps. This frequency is higher than other states and also more erratic due to the fact that are waking life mind is busy – we’re aware of many things that are taking place around us. We are in the beta state most of our awake hours.
The Theta state (4 to 7 cps) is similar to the Alpha state but deeper and characterized by sudden intuitive insights. These insights are global and sometimes ethereal.
The Delta state (3 cps and lower) is the sleep state wherein there is no consciousness-the state we visit the lower 4th dimensional plane (astral realm) and where dreaming occurs.
Comparing Conscious to Subconscious
We hold memory in both Conscious Mind and Subconscious Mind. Memory in the Conscious Mind is short-term and limited. The memory in the Subconscious Mind is unlimited. It stores every thought you’ve ever had. Every sense is also stored there from smell, sight, sound, taste, and feeling (or touch). Every emotion from birth is stored in the Subconscious Mind.
The Subconscious Mind is awake 24-hours a day and never sleeps. It is awake even when you’re under anesthesia.
The Conscious mind is rational, logical, and mathematical. The Subconscious Mind takes everything literally. This plays into a thing called “organ language” where the organs take everything (stored in the Subconscious Mind) literally.
To be great and to do great things in life calls for you to ignore your Conscious Mind many times because the Conscious Mind will reason you out of doing certain things. On the other hand, the Subconscious Mind is irrational.
The Subconscious Mind is your genie. It answers all of your wishes-the ones you want and the ones you don’t want as even when you don’t want something, you’re still wishing (and desiring).
The Subconscious Mind cannot determine or differentiate a real thing from an imagined thing. This is why imagining and visualization are so important. Your body responds to things real or imagined. If you think about sex, your body is going to respond to this thought. Your heart will start beating faster. You may get chills all over your body. And all from something imagined in your head (mind).
Magical thinking means you can literally change your life by changing your mind.
There are a few herbs that one can take to help nourish the brain but also to tone it, strengthen it, stimulate it, and rejuvenate it. These include:
- Gingko Biloba
- Gotu Kola
- Ginseng (all kinds, e.g. Chinese, Korean, Brazilian, Siberian, American, etc.)
- Holy Thistle
- Green Tea*
- Kola Nut (a/k/a Bissey Nut)*, and
- Yerba Mate*.
*Contains bio-active caffeine. This kind of caffeine occurs naturally in Nature and is non-addictive.
Agents that are detrimental to brain health include but not limited to:
- alcohol (spirits)
- aspartame (converts into a neurotoxin)
- corn syrup
- high fructose corn syrup
