Happiness Is An Inside Job! So, Train Your Brain to Live a Happy Life

Here’s a Way to Train Your Brain to Automatically Keep Your Mind Calm, Clear, and Creative

Follow these simple instructions to train your brain to automatically initiate a natural calming response any time, anywhere. It may take a little while for you to overcome the years of environmental assault on your nervous system, but, however long it takes, it will be worth it. Stay with it, and you will be rewarded with emotional stability, personal confidence, and authentic power you probably never thought possible. Twenty minutes, twice a day until the desired result is attained is a must to overcome the constant negative programming we are subjected to daily, but dramatic positive results will be noticed within seven days.

1) Find a time and a place where you won’t be disturbed. This is essential in the beginning, but once your nervous system is retrained, you’ll be able to do this just about anywhere, anytime. (Turn off all phones and do your best to eliminate other disturbances.)

2) Put yourself in any comfortable position, except your normal sleep position, otherwise your brain will put you to sleep; and, this is not sleep.

3) Close your eyes and put your thumb and first two fingers together separately on each hand. (This specific technique may also be used with other form of meditation or relaxation, in addition to this one.)

4) Take three deep breaths letting them out slowly.

5) Count slowly backwards from 20 to 1, focusing on each number.

6) Introduce into your mind the word TELOG, or any other neutral word or phrase you choose. If you become aware of thoughts, simply turn your attention to your word again as if you were watching a bird moving around in a tree. Twenty minutes is equivalent to 1 1/2 hours of sleep.

*Most importantly, during the day when you recognize that you are tense, simply repeat the three fingers and the word a few times and then go on with whatever you were doing. This takes only a few seconds, but the more you do it, the more you are retraining your brain to recognize unnecessary tension and initiate the calming response. Another amazing characteristic of this technique is that each person can determine what level of stress is too much. Some like the “adrenalin rush,” but even for them there is a limit. Eventually, after you’ve done this often enough to change the neuron pathways to your specifications, your brain will do it automatically, with an occasional reinforcement by using the full technique.

If you find that there are just too many thought intruding in your mind as you use these written instructions, know that Stephen has put together cd’s and mp3‘s in his soothing voice that can guide you easily through these exciting changes.

The “relaxation response” was discovered by Dr. Herbert Benson. Alpha Neuro-Training, a science based technique used to factor back the relaxation response into the brain so that it works automatically, was developed by Stephen Scalese, MSW. Direct questions or comments to
