Brain Reprogramming… for a Happier Life by Kate Gorman

he power of the mind can directly affect the outcome of disease, pain and even the circumstances of our experiences. Mind training has shown positive effects on the immune system and functions of the brain, and placebos produce physical changes in the body because people believe that the ingested pill has the power to heal. So what mechanism is allowing thoughts to change biology?

Many believe it is the glial cells. These cells make up 90 percent of the cells in the brain and have connections to the spine and heart. The prefrontal cortex, where thought originates, is directed by glial cells whose messages dictate the action of neurons, synapses and neuro-transmitters. Glial cells also initiate communication to the hypothalamus where hormones are produced. Species higher up the

evolutionary ladder have more glial cells. Humans have the third-most, after dolphins and whales. The only difference between Einstein’s brain and a typical human’s is more glial cells. Can people just direct the brain to heal illness, feel happy and think themselves into beautiful bodies? Many say that this is possible. It’s the memories of life conditioning and trauma that seem to get in the way. People generally believe they need something external in action, or a pill or substance to heal. It is not commonly put out there that humans can program the brain and body. But glial cells can reproduce and regrow; they can even become neurons, so people must be sure to tell them how they should grow. Glial cells will do what they are told to do! Self-programming of glia (SPG) is a specialized cognitive therapy that works via the understanding that the pivotal role of the glia plays in the entire human system of health or disease. It works to dissolve trauma and life conditioning in the hippocampus (the brain’s memory storage area) and throughout the central nervous system. Without this programming, the past and the pain are the messages going round and round through those glial cells. Directly programming the glial cells by intentioned and repeated thought will produce a calcium wave of messages that the brain and body will respond to. SPG is a speed course in learning the brain’s biology and becoming the true captain of the ship. People don’t have to be governed by memories or stress, which contribute to physical illness and emotional distress. They can claim their highest abilities and live them by making a real biological change like the production of more happy hormones!
