It Was Just My Imagination Running Away With Me

So why does our brain imagine all sorts of horrible things? It’s a question of survival! Even when we’re doing something that makes us happy our Amygdala (fear/survival brain) is continuously scanning our environment to see what ‘threats’ lurk out there. This is done either consciously or unconsciously. Say you’re swimming in the sea; your eyes are constantly searching above and under the water to see if there are sharks, jellyfish, etc; that might eat or sting you. You are sometimes not aware of this. Imagining you might get eaten...

"People Can't Be Trusted!"

"People Can't Be Trusted!"

A Belief is a thought or perception, opinion or idea that you believe to be true! A Belief is a thought or perception, opinion or idea that you considered long before your brain could sort out fact from fiction - to be a fact or the truth.  Beliefs are extremely powerful.  They determine and control the way you think, feel and behave.  They determine the fabric of your life and can unconsciously create your future. We all have conscious and unconscious beliefs about ourselves and those around us and the world, and sometimes they are at...

How Do You Play The 'Blame Game' - Victim Or Martyr?

How Do You Play The 'Blame Game' - Victim Or Martyr?

Victim Or Martyr – How Do You Play The 'Blame Game'? I think that ‘Blame’ is unconsciously about ‘control’ and ‘being right’. That if we can blame others then we don't have to take responsibility for the way our lives turn out - Victim. If we blame ourselves then we can be right about our own unworthiness and allow others to blame us for their lives not turning out - Martyr. Some people choose to do both, Victim and Martyr, the best of both worlds, you can be right whichever way you play ‘The Blame Game’. My Psychologist...

What Do You See In Your Future?

Says Daniel Gilbert, Professor of Psychology at Harvard University in his book, ‘Stumbling on Happiness’; ‘The brain is a belief making machine, and making future is what it does”, “The greatest achievement of the human brain is to imagine objects and episodes that do not exist in the realm of reality, and it is this ability that allows us to think about the future".  Says Daniel Gilbert, Professor of Psychology at Harvard University in his book, ‘Stumbling on Happiness’. The human brain is an ‘anticipation machine’ and...

Time & Tide Wait For No Man

Time in a Bottle – Jim Croce If I could save time in a bottle The first thing that I'd like to do Is to save every day Till Eternity passes away Just to spend them with you If I could make days last forever If words could make wishes come true I'd save every day like a treasure and then, Again, I would spend them with you But there never seems to be enough time To do the things you want to do Once you find them I've looked around enough to know That you're the one I want to go Through time with If I had a box just for wishes And...

I Had No Choice!

I Had No Choice!

“For over forty years I occupied a body that largely ran itself whilst ‘I was asleep’. When I reflect on my 65 years of life, it seems sometimes that I have mostly lived someone else’s life and not one that I imagined or dreamed of when I was a child. When I get up some mornings and take my cup of tea back to bed and think about the day ahead of me, I am still amazed  that today I will be helping people to reclaim their happiness and sanity. How did this come about? How did I create it? Did I create it? How do we? How did I? Do we...

What Are Antagonist Beliefs?

What Are Antagonist Beliefs?

"Antagonist Beliefs are formed when children are denied what they need or want and become angry" As children all we know is; ‘I’ - “I need food, I need warmth, I need love, I need protection, and I need comfort”. It is all about us! No wonder then that if we come from a dysfunctional home or a home where there are many children and we only have our basic needs for food and warmth met our natural survival instinct to get what we want by any means intensifies. Antagonist Beliefs are formed when as children we are denied what we need or...

“Never Take Money From Strangers”

“Never Take Money From Strangers”

“Never Take Money From Strangers” Did your parents ever warn you to never talk to or take money from strangers?  Here's my story of this double-edged warning; When I was six we lived in a small village and one morning I was walking alone through a small wood to get to school because my brother was sick. On the way I was approached by a nice man who chatted away to me and walked me to school. He was there again when I came out of school and offered me sweets to go for a walk with him. Yep – I went, who wouldn’t, I was six and loved...

"I’m Petrified Of The Dark"

Posted by on February 11, 2013 in Fear, What Are Beliefs | Comments Off on "I’m Petrified Of The Dark"

"I’m Petrified Of The Dark"

"I’m Petrified Of The Dark" Fear is a primitive, instinctual behaviour essential to our survival. Buried deep inside the brain are two ancient peanut shaped lobes called ‘The Amygdala’, also called the ‘reptilian brain’ because it is the brain we share with all animals. It is the most ancient part of our brain that alerts us to possible danger and triggers the Flight-Fight-Freeze response. Whenever we feel ourselves threatened or unsafe in any way the Amygdala instantly dumps adrenalin and cortisol into our bloodstream to prime our...
