As tragedy strikes again here in the U.S.A., I feel called to tell you how relevant the learning journey concerning the brain & mind is to transform humanity. This is our moment. This is our time to become and serve at our highest levels. Divided internally or externally we fall. But UNITED we can go to the NEXT level of our humanity.
Encourage your clients and those you influence to volunteer because showing humanity & charity changes the brain.
Being compassionate and selfless allows people to be guided by their higher selves and thus allows us to operate at our advanced brain power.
*Brain imaging studies have shown that TWO major changes take place in the brain when we do charitable works…
1. The positive-emotional brain circuitry as well as the pleasure and satisfaction centers in the brain are activated.
2. There is a high activation of gamma brain waves which indicates new brain cell wiring (or neuroplasticity) that grows as if stretching from the old branches of an ancient oak tree.
Why do these brain changes matter?
The activation of the positive-emotional circuitry along with the new tracks allows us to feel good about ourselves and our contribution to the greater good. When the brain feels good it will continue the charitable behavior making it a habit and natural way of life.
Prayers to our nation. Please share if you believe this message will serve others.
