“We are what we think
All that we are arises
With our thoughts,
We make our world.”
The human brain is the most amazing and precious gift from cosmic-consciousness.is this the ief centre of all our creation, memory, emotions, thoughts, thinking, and analytical process? It will remain a subject of deep quest and mystery for researcher, psychologist, psychiatrist, mentalist, mind-body interventionists and behaviour modulator. It’s of cosmic creation. For effective functioning of the human system both hard and soft disk should function well. Dear friends, today in this article I will try to highlight and discuss various functions of the brain, types of mind, right and left brain and various interventions to harness the power of this “soft copy”.
I would like to begin this article with a short fictional story of our childhood days, which we repeatedly hear from our teachers, TV episode and various books. It was the story of “Aladdin” (Master) and “Gin” (Servant). As we all know that “Gin” is fulfilling all the wishes, dreams and desires of “Aladdin” just by blindly following the orders, instructions and commands.As you sharply observed and noticed that “the servant” is just blindly following the order of Master. Using the reference and analogy of this short story, it is believed and said that your conscious mind is just like Master (Aladdin) and your subconsciousness Mind is just like as “Gin” (servant). Just be careful about your present thinking process, thought and actions because he thee subconscious mind is always working to make it a reality. This could be one of the reasons that why many religious scriptures and teachings are asking you to remain vigilant about your present thoughts and actions because the “servant” is always trying to turn them into facts. So what was a fictional story of our childhood days is now an inspirational story and message?
In other words, the subconscious mind is like automobile the the the the nandddconscious mind is like a driver, the energy to move is with the automobile but control to choose direction is with the driver. The moral of the story is that subconscious mind can work for you or can work against you according to instructions of consciousness mind. Now, this was a story about consciousness and subconsciousness mind.
The anatomically human brain is divided into the cerebrum, cerebellum, and brain stem.
Brain stem control and regulates the message from the senses and control breathing and heart rate. Next to it is
Cerebellum- It is like “cauliflower” structure and it is centre for muscle movement, muscle coordination and muscle memory. Again the story of the brain does not end here.
Atttooo he of the cerebellum is the cerebral cortex. The cerebral cortex is also divided into right and left hemisphere or right and left brain. The left hemisphere is more logical and verbal and Right is more intuitive and creative. Left deals with words, analysis (to understand anything we require breaking down the information) and Right brain deals with images, pictures and synthesis. (To perceive the information and thing in wholeness). left is the time-bound and right brain has no limits of time.
Creativity and thinking of children, researcher, scientist, writer, painter, latest innovations in science and technology, all the past invention and discovery are thankful for right brain and subconsciousness mind.
The cerebral cortex is also the site for emotion, thinking process and memory. It is also responsible for how we think and feels about ourselves which has a direct impact on our self-image, self-confidence, creativity, behaviour, personality and attitude in life. One important point that I would like to highlight is that every experience of life creates a memory with an emotional association. If our emotional memories of failure are powerful and strong then chances are there that in case of a new challenge and task the probability of failure is high. This could be the reason why so much significance and importance is given to positive thinking and increased self-awareness about oneself. Apart from this, there are other structures like the amygdala, thalamus, hippocampus, hypothalamus (It regulates the hormonal secretion of the body) and pituitary which regulates the brain function but is beyond the discussion. Now it was all about consciousness, subconscious mind, right and left brain and various functions of the brain.
Now I would like to switch over to various time tested measures and method suggested and recommended by psychologist, psychiatrist and behaviour modulator for the effective functioning of consciousness and subconscious mind and to overcome negative thinking in life. They are
1. Increased your self-awareness by regular practice of deep breathing exercise, meditation, Pranayam, prayer, the practice of silence, covenants, scripture study, empathy and compassion. Self-awareness is nothing but awareness about oneself, surrounding environment and people. Self-awareness leads to the awakening of “conscience”-which is nothing but a deeper understanding of what is right and wrong. On the long run, it will help in growing independent will and rational decision making.2. Positive affirmation and autosuggestions-These are positive statement design to make what type of person you are. They should be in the present tense, visual and emotional. It is nothing but harnessing the power of the right brain. These autosuggestions are nothing but instructions to your consciousness and subconscious mind, which in long run bring about a positive behaviour change and transformational attitude in life. E.g. positive autosuggestion and affirmation are, I inspire and motivate myself and others, I am cool and calm, I am committed to self-help as well as helping others
3. Visualization- Many studies in the field of psychology has strongly documented that many world-class athletes and other peak performers are visualizers. Before the actual event, they mentally rehearse the performance many times in their mind.
Visualization must be accompanied by positive affirmations and autosuggestions.
Now I would like to end this article with the famous quote of Rene Descartes (1596-1650)-
“It is not enough to have a good mind; the main thing is to use it well”.Dear friends, this is my opinion, understanding and thinking about consciousness, subconscious mind, right and left brain, creative and logical thinking.
