The Human Mind

“The human Mind- Many times people confuse the words “mind “and “brain” and use them in an interchangeable manner which strictly speaking is not correct. The brain is a physical organ which carries out specific processes under a fixed regime of rules producing outcomes based on the data it receives from the body sensors. But the brain is not capable of determining, on its own, either the task to be performed or the purpose which will be served by such performance. This is where the concept of human Mind enters the discussion. In simple terms one could think of the Mind as being the combination of a physical entity, the brain and the entity commonly referred to as human Spirit. This Spirit is the internal energy and driving force behind one’s creativity and imagination. It enjoys every possible freedom to direct the brain’s tasks towards imagining, conceptualizing, designing and creating anything which is within the limits of “logic” and the limits of “possibility”. One will be correct in considering the Spirit to be the motivator and initiator of every single human activity, thought or imagination. Utilising the capability of the brain, the wants, desires or designs of the Spirit are processed in a logical sequence and they are transformed, if possible, into tangible and defined outcomes. It is obvious that without either the brain or the Spirit the Mind has no meaning, or substance. A brain on its own cannot produce any outcomes because it lacks the energy and the motivation which can only be provided by the Spirit. Similarly the Spirit on its own is unable to logically process any sort of data or input because it lacks the processing capability. But these two elements together form a completely functioning unit which in the final analysis provides the distinction between higher and lower forms of life, with the differentiating characteristic being that of “reasoning” and “creating”. It is important to remember that as far as the internal processes are concerned they are hidden from any outside observer and the only one aware of their existence and outcomes is the person whose Mind produced these outcomes. In turn, the Mind on its own is incapable of communicating anything to the outside world and therefore it is in need of two things; the first one is the assistance of the physical body, which is the interface between the human being and its environment; the second thing needed is a control mechanism which regulates and adjusts human behaviour so that it conforms to the the rules and requirements of the particular environment. It must be pointed out that this control mechanism acts in an advisory capacity to the Mind and it does not posses a direct link to any functions of the human body. It is generally referred to as the human Soul”

Breathing is a necessity in life

“Do you know that a great many of us do not actually breathe properly? It is one of the most important elements of life, otherwise, without the breath, we cannot live.
Breathing may be an automatic function and a vital one, why then do we spend so much of our time shallow breathing? When we breathe in an unmindful way, we often fail to fill our lungs fully as we only using the upper part, but like anything, our lungs must be worked. Shallow breathing limits the range of motion of the diaphragm, and this can make you feel anxious and, as if you do not have sufficient breath.


We need oxygen for every single cell in the body. Inhalation and exhalation impact the heart and lungs but also, is essential for energy production. Your body’s tissues and organs are made up of cells, and they must receive the right nutrients and oxygen to function correctly.”

“How often do we pay attention to how we breathe? We don’t really, until we succumb to colds or chest infections. There’s little attention paid to our respiratory system. It’s only when you struggle to breathe that you realize just how important it is. If you consider that your nose, windpipe, lungs, circulatory system and the muscles all provide the vital role of transporting those all-important breaths that you take, each part of the body’s systems are inter-linked, but without breath, the body fails to exist.


Dr. Herbert Benson wrote about controlled breathing in his book The Relaxation Response which discussed the oxygen exchange i.e. oxygen being inhaled while carbon dioxide is released. He stated that by controlling breathing, it centers the parasympathetic nervous system which counteracts the body’s fight or flight response. So, this means that by focusing on the breath, it’s possible to de-stress and to manage any anxieties (and anxiousness equates to shallow, rapid breaths). But it also increased brain growth and lowered blood pressure and heart rate. Research endorses this argument and so, yes, focus, breathe correctly, and be healthy.”

“Our breathing is either:
Thoracic or diaphragmatic
Interrupted or continuous
Irregular or rhythmical


Paying attention to how you breathe is important, but it’s also relevant to consider that your breathing is affected by your emotional or physical well-being. Think back to a time when you were angry, fearful or sad, these emotions would have affected your breathing. As you try to recall the memory, tune into the physicality’s of the moment. What was your breathing like? It’s important for you to determine if you have emotional triggers which will interrupt the natural process of breathing. Awareness is key because you can then re-train automatic responses, breathing correctly while improving your health.”

“Have a go at monitoring your breathing for a while and notice if you are guilty of shallow breathing all the time. It’s easy to correct so don’t worry if you do this. It’s very easy to fit some techniques into your daily life and, if you feel anxious at any point or fearful, know that when you focus on your breathing, you can reduce this feeling. The breath has such a calming effect. When I’ve been fraught with tension and have been worrying like mad about things, I found that by taking slow, deep breaths and focusing on the inhalation and exhalation, it really works. If you tune into the breath and focus, you can’t worry about anything else.
There are so many symptoms associated with anxiety and these include:


Feeling faint
Racing heartbeat
Feeling lightheaded
Chest pains”

“We’ve already discussed the connection between the mind and the body and so, it won’t surprise you to know that if you start feeling anxious, it’s possible to experience severe physical reactions. It’s true to say that some people are even hospitalized because they feel they might be having a heart attack. Many symptoms occur through shallow breathing. In fact, anxiety and shallow breathing go hand in hand. This is because the individual takes in only small breaths during any anxiety attack instead of breathing all the way to the bottom of their lungs. Shallow breathing may not be dangerous as such, but you can bet that it’s not good for you.


With shallow breathing, there’s often a need to take deeper breaths, simply because you are not getting in sufficient oxygen levels.
Have you ever noticed that people start yawning to compensate on a subconscious level? It is the easy way to obtain sufficient oxygen and promote healing from within. Take 3 or 4 deep breaths and then go back to breathing normally, just do this more often that’s all.

“Feelings of anxiety promote the activation of our body’s fight or flight system. By its design, it is meant to keep you from safe from any danger. So, if you are faced with a dangerous situation, your heartbeat naturally speeds up, and you start to breathe faster, so to get more oxygen in your system ready for either fighting or fleeing from the situation. This, of course, makes sense.

But anyone who suffers from anxiety is probably not facing any actual danger but the body still reacts exactly as if they are.
Of course, we all suffer from moments of anxiousness from time to time. Our errant thoughts can run astray and make us hypersensitive as to all the numerous things that could go wrong in life, and don’t we always think the worst? Left unchecked, this can develop into some sort of anxiety disorder, and you don’t want that.”

“When this happens, your body consistently starts to release adrenaline, behaving as if you are in a terrifying and life-threatening situation. The chances are you are not in a life-threatening situation, but your stress response activates anyway. You will breathe more rapidly but shallowly. In a panic attack, the individual can end up hyperventilating. Let’s dismiss one myth here when you breathe shallowly, it does not mean that you need to increase your oxygen levels. Actually, it is the opposite. It means that you are over-breathing, shallow rapid breaths and exhaling carbon dioxide far too quickly before your body can make more.
Let’s consider the importance of breathing correctly. Inhale, and oxygen levels increase. But carbon dioxide actually takes time to develop and so, when the breath is shallow, you emit more CO2 than your body creates. It is this that will eventually lead to hyperventilation.

Now, as you hyperventilate, your body feels as if it is not getting sufficient levels of oxygen. Therefore, you start to take even more quick breaths in as you’ll feel panicky and of course, this makes it worse.
Hyperventilation will lead to other side-effects including:


Feeling weak
Tingling sensation Feeling feint
Increased heartbeat
Chest pains
Dizziness
Aches and pains
Reduced mental clarity.


Surprisingly, shallow breathing is one of the most important things to control, and if you can understand how shallow breathing is connected to anxiety, it makes it so much easier to deal with it.


Slow breathing
You may not want to slow your breathing down during an anxiety attack, but it is important to fight the urge to take deep, fast breaths but instead, just to slow down the breathing cycle. To do so, focus on your breathing and make each breath deliberate. Counting can help, and you should inhale for 5 seconds, hold the breath for 2 seconds and then, slowly breathe out for an extended period, for 6 to 7 seconds.”

The Base Chakra The Muladarah

The word chakra can be literally translated to mean the word wheel. Some references depict them as lotus like flowers. A chakra is an energy center, this is where the finer imperceptible energies of life itself are joined with an energetic type matrix. These then are mirrored by physical attributes. Such as, the body, the organs; while playing an integral part in the entire processing of living organisms.

Many cultures recognize these energies such as the ancient Hindus, Buddhists and Jainism as well. They documented and practiced these fine things for many years. This base chakra is also called the muladahara. It is the most frequent word used for the base chakra, in many languages. It was from the ancient Sanskrit word meaning root support.

The chakras as energy centers begin by being placed on a color wheel, a vortex. They are considered to be somewhat of a three dimensional shape. They project outward from the center position of the human body, correlating to a narrow point that projects towards. They are also behind the body, moving out of distance in the physical body. They are also conjoined through the “finer” energy bodies, surrounding our physics forms. Energy that vibrates at such a rapid pace will hold itself in that physical form; being actively attracted to the earths surface through the gravity pull it has on the force of nature’s holdings.

The base chakra being extremely special, although they are all linked, instead of the base chakra projecting outward, it inverts inwardly, transversely. it radiates downwards towards the focal point, into the earths core. The other six chakras radiate upward, while the base chakra; is the most important and vital chakra.

The Muldahara, (base chakra), when activated to a basic life sustaining level; effects consciousness, the internal organs, and it directs earth energy up, straight to vortex. This then feeds on the energy of the other six chakras. It is the primary physical chakra , where the earth energy is transferred and modulated into the body and then to the other centers.

Basically, the base chakra, is a psychological, emotional, and developmental chakra that has a whole affect on the human anatomy. On a spiritual level, the base chakra is a starting point. If one is seeking enlightenment, a better understanding of the self, this is the creative energetic platform to begin with, the start of your journey.

Understanding Your Brain and Some Basic Psychology


Who are you? What makes you , you? The answer is your brain to the most extremes. Your brain in turn is made up of billions of neurons. These are small cells that have tendril like extensions reaching out and into the different corners of your skull.

These neurons can be created , destroyed or changed due to any experiences that we encounter. They represent all kinds of things such as memories, sight, smells, thoughts and the commandments to move our bodies.

When an electrical impulse moves through a neuron, this means it is firing and thus we experience whatever correlates with that firing. If you open up someone’s skull and use an electrode to stimulate individual neurons, then one might make someone see a point of red light, one might make someone move their arm, and another might make them remember their mother.

These neurons are all interconnected and the more often two neurons Fire at once, the more connected they become. Thus, when one neuron fires, it is likely that others around it will fire depending upon the strength of the firing. This is called the action potential.

Some clusters of neurons from the major brain structures, like the occipital lobe, motor cortex or the hippocampus; are responsible for particular behaviors. Other neurons reach from one end of the brain all the way to the other end of the brain.



Already you can see your brain is not entirely under your control. If you see something specific this will cause certain neurons to fire based on your memories and understanding of that object. But, it also might cause surrounding neurons to fire, depending on the associations you have formed during this lifetime.

When certain neurons Fire, they cause particular emotions. Thats because neurons communicate across synapses. Small neurons between the end of one neuron ( the axon which is the tail) and the dendrites like arms of another.

At the end of each axon , is the synaptic knob. This is filled with chemicals called neurotransmitters, held inside neuro- vesicles. When the synapse fires, it causes these neurotransmitters to be released and that then alters the behaviors of the transmission and the surrounding cells.

Some neurotransmitters are excitatory, and make other neurons more likely to fire. Others are inhibitory and make them less likely to fire and become more suppressed.

Neurotransmitters are linked closely with hormones as well. Some hormones act like neurotransmitters while some neurotransmitters act like hormones. Essentially, hormones are longer lasting and generally produced in the body. While, neurotransmitters have shorter lasting effects and are produced in the brain. Even the hormones produced in the body though, are largely triggered by the pituitary glands. This is located in the brain.

An example is a lion , and your brain will sit up and take notice owing to the associations you begin forming with that image. Relevant neurons will fire, and because those neurons are coded with danger, they will release a number of neurotransmitters that will release dopamine and cortisol that will increase activity and say that something important is happening.

This increased activity , causes more of the brain to light up and areas around the hypothalamus will then begin to trigger activity to the pituitary glands. Producing adrenocorticotrophic hormones. The adrenal gland will also be triggered at this point, releasing the hormone epinephrine. This is essentially a form of adrenaline. This is then the set of changes that it causes in the sympathetic nervous system:

The triggers of psychological changes include:

The acceleration of the heart and lungs

Vasoconstriction- the thinning of the blood vessels

Dilation of the blood vessels leading to the muscles

Dilation of the pupils

Inhibition of erection

Sense of dread and anxiety

Tunnel vision

Pain reduction

Thickening of the blood to encourage clotting after injury

Shaking

Contraction of the muscles

Suppression of digestion and immune function

Essentially, the body now directs all blood, oxygen , nutrients and resources to the muscles and the brain. In order to aid in combat or other physical activities. There are many complex interactions of chemicals and hormones going on inside your body all of the time.

Everything That You Perceive, Think, Feel and Focus on changes your Brain

Whatever you focus on , care about and or worry or obsess about becomes the more prominent neurological factor in your brain. Furthermore , everything that you think, feel, decide , do or do not do changes your brain. This is whether you want it to or not.

Then, your default reaction becomes whatever is locked in your mind at that generated interval of time. Then, sometimes you just can’t turn that burning switch off. This is if you don’t take

Your brain does not develop strong synapses which are pathways to experiencing full emotion, unless it begins to see something habitually forming. what you do constantly is what will become wired into your brain neurologically.

Connections that are less active will receive less nerve growth. In turn, your nerves will begin to deteriorate. This is kind of like the idea of plants that don’t have enough fertilizer or water based in them on a daily basis.

When you contemplate on your sufferings, especially your past vulnerability; that you can’t prevent because it already happened. This causes the brain to increasingly focus on the suffering and the pain.

If you rely on the automatic reactions that are embedded in your habitual brain, aka the subconscious mind frame. This therefore, will help you react automatically to new events, new ideas, new pleasures, even if this reaction is denying you in some aspects.

If you train your brain to think about some hurt from the past, it will stay there. This isn’t about ignoring our past, it’s about ignoring the suffering that comes along with our past. What is within your power to change this in order to live to your fullest potential. Cultivate the actions that will move you toward the life that you want. This is by questioning these automatic response actions and turning them into positive thoughts.

You can’t live consciously thinking about your past. Your injustices done to you are done, leave them in the past. If you do you will become miserable. You will feel victimized by yourself, it won’t make you a great life because it can’t and never will.

Whatever you focus on becomes ingrained in your brain and makes your neurologically stronger. You can reshape your brain to respond to whatever it is that you want it to.

Wire your brain right now, know that you have choices in this life and that tomorrow is a new day. Even today, lets start on your new life, learn how to rewire your subconscious mind for its attainment.

Mental Fatigue and How it takes A Toll on the Body

Mental fatigue occurs when the brain is overstimulated. Also from a lack of mental stress. If someone is mentally stressed , they may find it hard to sleep or to stay asleep. Alternatively, stressed individuals require more sleep than usual.

If you are lacking sleep it may be hard for you to retain anything in your brain, your memories may become scattered. Everything therefore, slows down and or freezes. Your brain begins to feel overload and then becomes foggy 🌫. If you are showing symptom of brain fog , it is time to go to sleep or take a nap.

People suffering with mental fatigue often become bombarded with confusion. Especially when they are bombarded with an endless source of information. Such as when looking on a computer. When you are mentally fatigued you might ask someone to repeat themselves. Even if you heard them perfectly, you are mentally clouded and in need of taking that material in, digesting it once more.

If you are irritable, sad or just not in the mood to do anything, you are showing signs of mental fatigues. Out of control emotional distress is a sure sign of mental fatigues.

Mental fatigue may make you crave sugary or salty foods. Others, may lose their appetite all together. These negative eating patterns have to do with the fact that your brain is not dealing with the stresses; so it’s time to make a change.

Your mind and body are connected and therefore, if your mental health is having problems; your sure to see your physical health having problems as well. Muscle pains, headaches, constipation and high blood pressure are signs of mental fatigue.

It may start with rapid heart rates, shortening of your breath , stomach pains and your teeth grinding. This is a sign that harmoniously your body and brain are not working together.

If you want to have a healthy body, you better realize that it all starts with your brain. It is the central processor. Make sure your brain health is performing optimally , so that your entire body is at its best too! ❤️🤟

Sleep 💤 can actually clean your Brain 🧠

Have you ever realized why you need to sleep? This is not just to survive, your brain actually clears and cleans itself while you sleep.

During sleep the brain actually clears out all of the toxins you have accumulated while you were awake. The cellular structure of the brain changes while your sleeping. One study that was published shows that the brain cells actually shrink during sleep. This therefore, creates gaps between the tissues, allowing the neurological waste to be pushed out and flushed away.

The waste removal system is referred to as the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is found to be ten times more active when a person is sleeping. The brain flushes the waste through the cerebrospinal into a fluid like form. This same fluid is the fluid that brings nutrients to the brain.

Getting enough sleep actually lowers your risk of getting Alzheimer’s. As a topic that many people are aware of , it’s an open discussion that when you do not receive enough sleep your brain can become clouded and increases your risk of Alzheimer’s.

The brain flushes out these proteins during sleep called beta amyloid proteins. If your brain is healthy, these are flushed away, if not it creates a sticky plaque. The plaque is found is many patients who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

Also memory impairment is caused by not getting enough sleep. Mathew Walker, a neuroscientist , involved in a study; found that having an increasing amount of beta amyloid proteins in the brain, led to not being able to achieve a deep sleep. It also impacted the memory. The less sleep you get, the less likely you are to have a low level of beta amyloid proteins. Your brain health will begin a very vicious cycle and begin to deteriorate.

Bedtime habits that could harm your brain; neuroscience experts suggest that people who pay better attention to their sleep hygiene are more likely to also focus on their diet and exercise more presciently.

Keeping a smart phone (cell phone) close to your head, emits signals that have the capability of adversely reconstructing brain cells and preventing the process of cleaning out neurotoxins in the body.

The brain needs about 6-8 hours of sleep each night. If getting enough sleep each night is a challenge for you , try and take a twenty minute nap each day. It will boost your brains memory and capacity for learning. Research suggests that the brain actually has limitations. Even if we would like to believe otherwise. Go get some sleep! Happy sleeping 💤 😴

Silence and The Brain

Studies show that silence helps trigger the development of new brain cells, which develop into functional neurons. The hippocampus which is responsible for learning and processing emotions and memory; shows newly developed cells after exposure to silence.

Some people believe that silence relaxes the brain too much, whereby it may become unproductive. However, if you are in a totally silent environment the brain is still busy processing thoughts. It is also busy evaluating information.

You would have experienced this, by silently pondering and reflecting on past events. This is when your brain is not distracted by noise. This is when it can process information smoothly.

Noises stresses the brain and the body. Noise can have a negative impact on the brain. This is a result of the body releasing the stress hormone cortisol. Experts believe that the amygdala , which is situated within the brains temporal lobes; is constantly activated through the chronic production of the stress hormones.

The amygdala is the part of the brain that processes memories and emotions. Therefore, an individual living in a noisy environment is more likely to produced high levels of cortisol. It can cause distress both physically and mentally as a result of constantly induced brain activity.

Silence releases stress from the body. If noise is a problem then silence is a solution. The findings of a study that was published in the heart journal showed that two minutes of silence produced more relaxation benefits than a person listening to two minutes of music.

Noise harms cognitive functioning in the brain. Noise is harmful to a persons productivity and performance. It decreases motivation. It increases the tendency to make mistakes. Noise can have an adverse impact on the brains cognitive functioning and affects the brains ability to process memory, focus and to solve essential problems.

Noise increases risk of illness. Experts have figured out high levels of blood pressure linked to noise. Chronic exposure to noise from airports or highways. It is also linked to higher rates of heart disease, sleep loss and tinnitus.

Cortisol increasing in the body do to high levels of blood pressure and putting more stress on the body, significantly strains your body’s entire system. This results in in a high heart rate and constricting blood vessels. This is a precursor for developing heart disease.

This can also increase the risk of developing anxiety and depression. Also, unwanted behaviors of anger and or aggression.

To better understand the noise on our heart health, a study showed that being exposed to persistent noise greater than 65 decibels , affected the cardiovascular system.

65 decibels is the background noise in a restaurant. 86 decibels is approximately the noise a blender would create.

The Greatest Power

Gisele Bundchen

The greatest power is the power of our subconscious mind. Once we understand this and learn to use the power within us, we can create wonderful changes in our lives. We will be able to achieve many goals.

How can we access this power of the subconscious mind? Is there a key? Well yes. The alpha level of our mind is the key. This level can be reached through meditation. Scientists have done an eminent amount of research involving the brain.

The electrical impulses being admitted continuously by the brain , keep changing in frequency; depending upon the activity involved. This is measured by an equipment called EEG, in cycles per second.

Alpha is a brainwave frequency between 7 and 14 cycles per second. This is the level between sleep and wakefulness. While functioning at this level, apart from the usual brain activity our right brain also gets activated. This makes a person thinking very powerful, very intuitive and very reactive.

This level connects us to our subconscious and helps us access the amazing powers lying dormant there. It has been found that any thought projected in the mind , at this level will certainly be manifested in real life. Apart from this , practice of Alpha mediation for about 15 minutes everyday improves memory and sharpens the mind.
