So how do you go about improving this connection by featuring thoughts that are created by your physical brain?
Unfortunately, the science on how thoughts influence our health and well-being has been restricted to a subset of human beings.
Adopting the mindset of living in harmony with nature is one of the best resources that we can choose to always be our spark of happiness in a way that is positive and life affirming.
Connecting with nature can be introduced in various ways, but primarily through engaging in slow movement. Simply taking time out of your day to just sit quietly for close to 20 minutes helps improve your sense of success and fulfillment.
If you are looking for ways to develop a stronger connection with the universe your thoughts are generating, there are many methods for you to explore.
There is much deep thought in regards to the relationship between thought itself and the universal mind. By disconnecting from your thoughts, just for a moment, it will broaden your perspective. People that have spent a long time trying to understand this relationship often find enlightenment.
One of the most popular methods for cultivating the mind-brain connection is cross-legged meditation. Meditation allows one to have more conscious control of the body and thins enough in one’s mind to allow for deep thought; let overall consciousness descend into a reprieve — an escape land of mindfulness.
Being aware when our thoughts come is often the key to our daily relationships.
One major stumbling block to a mindful, content and satisfying life is thoughts. Thoughts are generated from our physical brain in the temporal lobe; a mere stone’s throw away from our conscious awareness. If a thought crosses over, our rational mind will kick in with negative self-talk, usually something along the lines of “Oh my god, I have only been obsessing about this for three years now.”
If you close your eyes and allow your thoughts to focus inward they should come to rest in greater equanimity. The cerebral cortex makes decisions on what is important to decision making but doesn’t have access to the emotional subconscious state which has access to all symbols and experiential knowledge stored there.
Acknowledge and come into contact with these feelings without dwelling on them or ruminating on them.
Too often we become too attached to our own individual “flavor” of anger which does no justice towards mindfulness or balanced living.
Thinking negatively can cause stress and strain on your mind and body, but there is often an easy solution to stopping the negative thoughts. One idea is simply to learn meditation and find a way to reside in the present moment. Yunita noticed this improvement after she started doing yoga.
Even though it takes a lot of patience and practice, Yunita says that “Meditation has improved my mental state drastically.” With a little discipline, meditation can be a powerful instrument in developing your connection with the universe.
In order to develop a healthy connection with the universe, thoughts must be quieted.
Quiet time is needed in order to get into a neutral state of mind that does not involve specific thoughts.
Sitting by watching your thoughts arise is another form of meditation. This can be helpful to understand the roots of why particular thoughts might be entering your mind, and how they sometimes distract you from doing something else you want to do.
At its most basic level, it is simple meditation. Take a deep breath in. Exhaling deeply and concentrating on your breath, make sure to allow your shoulders and head to relax a little after each inhalation/exhalation. Your eyes will start to move out of themselves as you focus consciously on each inhation/exhalation without becoming confused or caught up in thought loops. This type of meditation helps us realize that breathing in and out on our own does not require anything else if we are ok just being there: observing our breath, feeling
Many of us are plagued by negative thinking that can make simple tasks like falling asleep, studying for school, or performing mundane tasks a time-consuming chore.
The good news is, these thoughts are not permanently etched in your brain- they change. This brings to light the importance of mastering the art of meditation and other practices for dealing with negativity.
Meditation is a state in which the mind does not register anything happening outside of itself. With this steadied, focused state, it can be possible to catch negative thought and push them away, further developing your connection with the subconscious mind.
The more you can let go the more powerful your grasp becomes.
It is not easy to do, in fact, really difficult at times. Positive changes in one’s life can be obtained by sitting down and doing a proper meditation. Developing your connection with the universe will dramatically improve the quality of your life. You will come to understand more about yourself, other people, and the world. A mind that is still and focused on achieving put the brain in a position to receive deep goods from the Universe.
