Guest post by Lisa Wimberger from the Neurosculpting Institute and Bella Retreats
We are the product of our history and experiences. Much of that history is made of unique moments that linger due to their importance to us. In lingering, we create an ongoing conversation and relationship with those moments, even though they’re gone. They become our stories. They look and feel like aspects of our personality or culture. They are sometimes masked as our deeply rooted beliefs and convictions. They even shape the way we perceive our future as we compare them to the past. Our stories are both our power and our weakness if they run amok.
Just how does one change their story? What if your own limitations no longer got in your way? Imagine how much more deeply you could love if your story of vulnerability were healthy and in balance. Imagine how much abundance you could have if your story of worth got bigger?
Our brain creates and holds the stories and our body believes them. So the key to changing the story is to go into the workings of the brain and learn to train it differently. Neuroscience has led us to the discovery that we can choose what we focus on and the beliefs we entertain and that very focus will create a structural and functional change in the brain. This change moves us towards that new story and pattern and away from the old. It’s called neuroplasticity, and we all have it!
What’s one thing you can choose to view differently tomorrow so that you can tap in to more worth, value, joy, ease, potential and grace?
Retreat this January 21-28 with Lisa and Una right here at Villa Sumaya to rewrite your stories and change your life.
