Sympathetic Nervous System vs Parasympathetic Nervous System
Follow with me for a minute here so you can best understand how this part of the human mechanism works. The beta frequency, our thoughts, (14-40 Hertz, or cycles per second) these thinking frequencies. They are transmitted through the electromagnetic center of the heart via the Vegas nerve. It is part of our autonomic nervous system. There are two parts sharing this neuro highway. The Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) and the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS). In the brain, these frequencies are creating the neuropeptides that connect to our emotions so we can feel them. The beta frequency travels up the nerve to the brain stimulating the thinking and feeling activity in the brain. We experience this overactive thinking in the brain as what we call anxiety, nervousness, or overwhelm. It has learned from out past experiences that this is the feeling it should create.
We need a different kind of brainwave to balance it out…the other type frequency comes from the Parasympathetic Nervous System to counteract the fast wave activity that is out of control in that moment and why we feel anxiety, overwhelm, or fear. When the brainwaves are balanced that activity is known as a coherent brainwave. Basically, the thoughts, wanted or unwanted, are known in science as being “in phase.” The energy waves are moving in the same direction. When they are balanced from this different wave from the parasympathetic nervous system the brain can be quiet.
I believe what Blaise Pascal was describing is this condition of unbalanced brainwaves which made it difficult for people to think or be able to quiet their brain. So, as he says, “All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.” That balance is essential for creating a meaningful life. I have programs to teach people how to create balance in their thinking, feeling and change subconscious beliefs that they probably learned growing up, but they are still living those patterns because that’s how we are wired. If we are meditating, or doing anything else in life, we need listen to that “still small voice” from our Inner Being, our intuition. In other words, to connect to the guidance from our intuition. Otherwise, we will be subject to being driven by the subconscious rules that drive our behavior.
Our intuition speaks to us primarily with emotion. When we are headed in the right direction, when going to a particular event or meet with a person…it feels right! That is our intuition telling us that is the correct choice. If it doesn’t feel right, if it feels off in some manner…that is our Inner Being or our intuition telling us that is not the way to go or the thing to do. Now, if you have all that beta brainwave activity in your sympathetic nervous system you won’t be able to hear that “still small voice” or feel the emotions to let you know that the choice is the right or wrong choice, situation or person are not the right direction. If there is too much distraction from everything else, or our unwanted thoughts are dominating our thinking we most certainly will miss the message and will make choices that are leading us away from the meaningful life we desire.
Our highest priority should be who we are as a person. Our own identity, who we believe we are and what we can do or not do. We need to Believe in Ourselves, See Blog #8. We want to be better control of our thoughts and behaviors. Our career that contributes to our well-being. Our meaningful life might be more driven by spirituality. Perhaps it provides more satisfaction through our relationships and friendships. It is not for me to say what a meaningful life for you, that is for you to decide. That is your choice and for you to accept, create and bring into your reality!
I have heard it said that anyone can guide the ship in calm water. It is more challenging and requires more skill and experience if the sea is choppy and not as calm. The sea is only still on occasion and for short periods of time. We must learn how to steer our ship when the waters are not calm…which is most of the time. We may encounter some choppy seas that requires us to make choices to navigate a path through the water that is not calm. Sometimes there is a raging storm that requires more skill and has choices that hold greater consequence. Develop your experience, find your balance!
Follow with me as I lead you to gathering and applying the secrets to creating your meaningful life. One of the pillars of my new book are the teachings of Albert Einstein. He spent a lifetime understanding and teaching how Universal Laws work.
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want, and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” – Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein (1879–1955) is widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest physicists of all time. Einstein is best known for developing the theory of relativity, but he also made important contributions to the development of the theory of quantum mechanics. Relativity and quantum mechanics are together the two pillars of modern physics. His mass–energy equivalence formula E = MC2, which arises from relativity theory, has been dubbed “the world’s most famous equation“. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. In the 1930s, Albert Einstein battled with Niels Bohr, a Danish physicist, over the completeness of the emergence of the new physics that included quantum mechanics. To explain something that at the time had no real explanation in science, Einstein referred to it as “spooky action at a distance.” I believe that term is his way of talking about Universal Laws.
The importance of Universal Law is that they work even if you don’t know about them. They work even if you don’t understand them or even care about them. They work the same for everyone, whether we want them to or not. To create your meaningful life, it is important to understand the basics of this…you cannot attract your meaningful life if your personal vibration is out of alignment, and you are pushing it away.
Knowing that Universal Laws are at work in our life and knowing how to use them will keep you from wondering why you think you are doing all the right things but not getting the result you desire. Sometimes it seems to work and other times it seems confusing because it isn’t working. If it isn’t working it is because you are out of alignment…it could be your thoughts, feelings, or your behaviors need some fine tuning.
Someone or something is not doing this to you or for you…many may think life is happening to them…fact is, you are the one creating the outcome of what you are attracting. Because of your lack of alignment, you are the one pushing it away from yourself the very thing you think you are attracting to yourself. That has to do with your subconscious beliefs…the rules that drive our thinking and behavior.
I find that most people need help, guidance, and instruction on how to implement this in their life. It is not that some people have this gift, and some do not. Everyone on this planet is subject to Universal Laws. You need to decide you want to learn how those laws work and put the solution into attracting your meaningful life.
The importance of using these Universal Laws in your life…
1. We Are Not Separate Entities
All things in the universe have a link to each other. Our existence is like a circle, and it is impossible to live a solitary life. Our Collective Consciousness and shared universal energy bind us to everyone and everything.
2. Everything We Do Has an Effect on the World
Thoughts. Actions. Words. Beliefs. All of these have an impact on us as individuals and on our Collective Conscience and existence. The significance of this is that you influence the type of life you lead and your circumstances.
I have created a program that teaches you to change your subconscious beliefs from what you don’t want to ones that work for you and not against you. This training allows you to identify what is wrong and know the steps to changing it within yourself. That way you will learn how use your power from within anytime you desire to make a change. You will learn the steps to do it for yourself whenever you need it.
A meaningful life is about making informed choices. It is about following through with our choices. We begin by deciding what a meaningful life means to each of us. Then it is about making choices that set the feeling and tone for what we are thinking or doing. More information can be obtained at www.thoughtgenius.com/meaningful
1) I used information from two surveys that were given to 4,729 people from across the United States.
2) Americans are most likely to mention family when asked what makes life meaningful.
3) After family, they mention a bunch of other considerations from which they derive meaning and satisfaction. One being, their career or job, nearly a quarter mention finances or money, and one-in-five cite their religious faith, friendships, or various hobbies and activities.
4) Around 1654 Blaise Pascal coined the phrase, “All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”
5) People have a very hard time controlling their thoughts to create the inner peace they seek.
6) There are two parts sharing this neuro highway. The Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) and the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS).
