I remembered a song one of my dear friends was clinging to for a while last year, “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again.” The title says it all.
A doctor I respect and admire, Dr. Caroline Leaf, a cognitive neuroscientist with a PhD in Communication Pathology specialized in Neuropsychology, encourages her patients to speak to their brain. That action is full of power when associated with faith in the Creator, the One who created it.
Our brain will follow our command.
I’ve learned that every time when we say statements about ourselves, our brain cells listen and follow.
“I can’t do this.”
“They will hire somebody else anyway.”
“What to expect from my body after 60 years?”
“That sickness runs in our family and I will get it,” and so on.
Our brain cells will start working to put in practice what we think.
In the same way, don’t agree when other people speak words of discouragement over you.
“You will never change.”
“Nobody is able to do that.”
“Your career is over.”
Words of declaration are powerful. Your brain will believe them. Use them to water others and bring life to them. Their brain listens as well.
