Learn how to use the potential of your brain: tips and strategies to boost your brain power
When we face obstacles in our lives we not always try to overcome them by ourselves, but we rather tend to believe that we will certainly get some help from the world. We listen to the advice of friends and not-so-friends, family, read all sorts of articles and watch television programs and wait. Suggestion, which is a pretty powerful tool, plays a very important role here.
However, it is not always able to help us, and very often it may even do harm. Everyone has heard stories about how someone robbed people using suggestion. But you can also remember the stories with happy endings, for example, the ones about the placebo effect. (more…)
Fortunately, numerous studies have shown that there are alternative methods to treat pain, which have to do with concentration and mind power.

In this article I will show you a small, simple experiment that anyone can do to see with his own eyes how the mind affects the body. We all know the most famous principle of quantum physics which states that the observer affects the observed. There are thousands of books and articles on how the mind generates almost all diseases in our body.
With this simple experiment you will see what happens in life or, in particular, how the quality of your thoughts is implemented in your body.
Close your eyes… make some deep breaths and relax your body. If you have never performed any form of relaxation techniques before, then you can use your breath.

If this has not happened sufficiently, you can relax your body “manually”. Focus your attention on the bottom of your feet and visualize that with each inhalation you get golden light, which goes to your feet, and with each exhalation (more…)
The most important thing about the subconscious mind you need to know is that it is always “on”. That is, it is active day and night, regardless of whether you are doing. The subconscious mind controls your body. You cannot hear this silent inner process with your conscious effort. You need to start taking care of your subconscious mind. It is vital to maintain your mind in a state of expectation of only good events and make the usual mode of your thinking based solely on loyalty, justice and love.
Faith and belief are the foundation of the subconscious. Do not forget that “you will be rewarded according to your faith”.
A Protestant minister who suffered from lung cancer wrote about his methods of transferring thoughts of perfect health into his subconscious mind: “Two or three times a day, I put my body and soul in a relaxed state, repeating these words: “My feet are completely relaxed, my legs are relaxed. Right now my stomach muscles are relaxing. My heart is beating quietly, my breathing is calm and relaxed. My head is completely relaxed, my whole body is completely relaxed and calm.” After about five minutes, when I got into a drowsy, sleepy state, I repeated: (more…)
In 1936, the American writer Dorothy Brandt in her book «Wake Up and Live» offered some fun exercises for the brain training to help you make your mind sharper and more flexible. These exercises are aimed to get you out of your usual environment, show a different perspective (even a different reality, if you want) and create a situation that will require ingenuity and creative solutions.
1. Spend 1 hour a day without saying anything, just answering direct questions in your usual surroundings, without creating the impression that you are offended or in a bad mood. Behave as normally as possible. Do not make any comments and do not give in to attempts to extract information from you.
2. For 30 minutes a day, think of one and only subject, being completely focused on it. You can start with five minutes.
3. For 15 minutes a day keep conversation without using the words “I, me, my, mine.“
