How to Use Your Thoughts to Transform Your Life

The Science of Personal Transformation

By Goldie KimPublished 6 months ago 4 min read

Have you ever heard the phrase "you are what you think?" While it may sound like a simple platitude, there's actually a lot of truth to it. Neuroscience has shown that the way we think can have a profound impact on our experiences and emotions. But how can we use this knowledge to transform our lives and achieve our goals?

We'll explore the science behind personal transformation and give you practical tips on how to change your thoughts, behaviours, and emotions to create the reality you desire. We'll discuss the importance of mental rehearsal, the power of personality, how nerve cells wire together, the importance of a state of being, and why you shouldn't wait for a crisis to make changes.

Your brain is a record of your environment. Everything you've experienced in your life is reflected in the wiring of your brain. This means that if you constantly think and behave in the same way, your brain will wire itself to reflect that reality, and it can be challenging to break out of those old patterns.

To change your reality, you need to start by changing your thoughts. You need to believe in a future that you can't see or experience yet, but that you've thought about enough times in your mind that your brain has changed to look like that event has already happened. This is called "mental rehearsal," and it's a powerful tool for creating the reality you desire.

Your personality is made up of how you think, act, and feel, and it creates your personal reality. If you want to create a new reality, you need to change your thoughts, behaviours, and emotions to become a new person. The problem is that most people try to create a new reality as the same person, and it never works.

To change your personality, you need to make your brain work in new sequences and patterns. Every time you learn something new, you make a new connection in your brain, and this is what learning is all about. By forging new connections, you can begin to make your brain work differently and create a new reality.

The brain is a complex network of nerve cells that communicate with each other through electrical and chemical signals. When you have a thought, you make a chemical, and if you have a positive thought, you turn on a set of circuits in your brain that fire in a very specific sequence, pattern, and combination that produces a level of mind that turns on another part of the brain that makes a chemical for you to begin to feel exactly the way you were just thinking.

On the other hand, if you have a negative thought, you turn on a different set of circuits in a different combination, sequence, and pattern that produces a different level of mind, and the brain then begins to make a different batch of chemicals that signals the body for you to begin to feel exactly the way you were just thinking.

When your thoughts and feelings are aligned with a concept, you create a state of being. Thoughts are the language of the brain, and feelings are the language of the body. As people get caught in the cycle of thinking and feeling, feeling and thinking, over time, they condition their body to memorize that emotion as well as the conscious mind, and whenever the body knows as well as the mind, that's called a habit.

To change your reality, you need to change your state of being. The quantum field, universal mind, or whatever you want to call it, responds to who you're being, not what you're thinking or feeling, but the combination of how you're thinking and how you're feeling called a state of being.

Most people wait for a crisis or trauma or disease or loss or diagnosis to really want to change. They wait until the ego is brought to such a low level that they cannot go on business as usual any longer. That's when they begin to look at how they're thinking, what they believe, how they act, their attitude, or what emotions they're living by.

But why wait? You can learn and change in a state of pain and suffering, which tends to be the human model, or you can learn and change in a state of joy and inspiration. The choice is yours.

In summary, the way you think can have a tremendous impact on your life. By changing your thoughts, behaviours, and emotions, you can transform your reality and achieve your goals. Mental rehearsal, changing your personality, paying attention to the nerve cells that fire together, your state of being, and not waiting for a crisis to make changes are all important factors in personal transformation.

The key is to intentionally create the reality you desire by changing your thoughts and emotions. This may take time and effort, but the results are worth it. Don't wait for a crisis to make changes; start today and embrace the power of personal transformation. Remember, you have the ability to shape your own reality and create the life you want.
