I recently watched the movie, “Awake: the Life of Yogananda” about the life of Paramahansa Yogananda, a yogi and guru who introduced millions of westerners from 1920 to 1952 to the teachings of meditation and Krya Yoga. Yogananda brought the concept of the science of religion to American that is religious practices can be explained through science, including the idea that the hardwiring of our brains from our past negative experiences can be rewired.
I have been vastly interested in this biological and psychological question, can the brain be rewired once it has been hardwired for addiction, trauma, and other negative life experiences? Neuroscience is explaining that this can be done due to brain plasiticity, and this is the first of a series of articles I will be sharing on my blog.
This first article is on the specific techniques on rewiring the hardwiring of the brain by Hilary Stokes Ph.D. and Kim Ward Ph.D. who have been a team for 20 years, specializing in mind, body, spirit psychology, and bestselling authors. Their article “5 Ways to Rewire Your Brain for Meaningful Life Changes” is at the following link:
I hope you find this helpful for your spiritual and emotional healing practice!
