Intuition is acting with common sense and not producing some sudden mind-blow. But how do we think comon-sensely?
First, shut off your amygdala circuits. Fear will be gone. Then activate the heart´s influence on the brain. This is done by breathing a bit slower than usual. This way your heart goes into sinusal rhythm.
And then smile. Smiling is parasympathetic and shuts off fight-or-flight reactions.
When your heart beats sinusally and you´re smiling, you´re ready to perceive the common sense ideas lodged in your right brain waiting to pop out.
There are many more brain neurons transporting from the feelings zones to the thought zones then the reverse. This is why feelings can shape thoughts but thoughts never reshape feelings.
Some of us are able to use inner thoughts to appreciate feelings. During the process we allow our relatively newer thought brain cells to feed from older, memory cells. This is what wiser men mean by telling us to listen to our hearts.
Can you spot the child in you patiently listening to the wiser man? By doing so you gain access to the frequency of the heart.
Mood can add either norepinephrine or endorphin to the fluid bathing brain cells.
If you´re in a low mood norepinephrine prevails. It then enhances autodialogue. You will hear yourself saying how this could have been done better and how that could have rewarded you more.
If a mood shift comes in endorfin is released. It then weakens self-pity connections between memory nerve cells. It disengages neurons momentarily so that they can connect in different ensambles. This in turn generates fresh ideas.
But remember - your task is not to generate those fresh ideas. It is to be able to bring about a mood shift.
Thinking is the motionless activation of motion brain cells.
By thinking no action takes place immediately but eventually follows. Your brain presumes it´ll follow.
Action is a sequence of events whose processing uses three sets of nerve cells. The first informs, the second processes information and the third acts.
Thouhgt is a large-bandwith process of engaging middle neurons. Too much thinking devoid of post-processing motion can lead to depression. No thinking leads to mental poverty. Fine balance leads to creation.
Are your thoughts today leading to a piece of action?
