THE HUMAN BRAIN
Parts I & II
So often I see or hear people using the words brain and mind as interchangeable. I teach, as does Jonah and my Chinese Master, the brain is not the mind and the mind is not the brain. They have different functions and different purposes. I do realize that old school philosophy, teachings, and scientific conclusions are just that, old school, old beliefs, and old outdated theories. Sometimes old school is hard to let go of, especially depending on the belief patterns one holds.
I taught, my Advanced Life Energy Flow Tai Yi class, this past April the importance of understanding the difference. When one understands the functions of both, they are able to work with each on a more diverse level.
A way to examine differences between the brain and mind, the brain is the computer and the mind is the software. If you have a computer virus or difficulty in the hard drive you end up with a mess, or garbled information, or no information at all. Sometimes it can be so severe, you simply get a black screen to look at.
Sally Satel stated in her article, “Distinguishing Brain From Mind”, “The study of the brain is said to be the final scientific frontier. Will we lose sight of the mind, though, in the age of brain science? While the scans are dazzling and the technology an unqualified marvel, we can always keep our bearings by remembering that the brain and the mind are two different frameworks.”
Jonah and I have taught since the mid 80’s the brain is not the mind and the mind is not the brain. It is more recent this is at the beginning stages of being understood again.
The human brain is formed in the womb and ceases to exist shortly upon death. Therefore, the brain holds the experience of beginning and end. It experiences everything as a beginning and an end. This is why it is difficult to conceptualize that the universe has always been and always will be. This confusion is based on experiencing the brain of human, the earth, the solar system, the galaxy, and yes, the brain of the universe, all in its third dimensional energy. As I said earlier, the brain has a beginning and an end, so does the brain of the third dimensional universe. The human brain understands age, getting older, just as the third dimensional universe is aging, getting older, preparing for rebirth.
The brain is a flesh and blood organ, needed for the mind to use a physical body in the third dimension. As I said earlier, the mind is as software. Who programed the software and why? The answer is two fold, but both answers are, you did. The first answer is the higher mind programed what I call the lower mind, the mind that works with physical realities. When the lower mind accepts (no negative ego) the higher mind to be in ascendency, and the brain is clear of toxic beliefs and or toxic chemicals, is when one comes into their full knowingness.
The second answer is based on the experiences of the lower mind. It is possible and often probable you carry the same frequency of lower mind that you did, in what I will call a past life or lives. When this occurs is when one is strongly programed with beliefs, indoctrination of perhaps a past culture, anger, guilt, or social moral patterns of another era in human history.
In addition to these two answers, you also have what I call an etheric film that resides around the brain. If this etheric film is polluted, or has cross contamination, it interferes with the thought processes from the mind, higher and lower. Think of a screen, perhaps a small screen in your showerhead. When it becomes plugged with debris, your water pressure lowers; it restricts the amount of flowing water. The same is true of the etheric film. Is it toxic? The more toxic the etheric film is, the more difficulties one has in life. Beliefs become very powerful, addiction becomes very powerful, and the belief in disease becomes very powerful, often through the filters of depression.
The brain is a very powerful tool for healing, especially in the sleep state. Many do not know this, but the brain is more active when you are asleep (this also describes why you may have the dreams you have). Until the 1950’s, most people believed when you went to sleep your brain was passive or dormant. Science has now discovered the brain is very active during sleep. Jonah has taught, when you are sleeping the brain is more active in removing toxins that have had an influence upon the brain. People who have difficulty sleeping will also be more susceptible to disease. On the other hand, the mind is the same when you are asleep, awake, or even in a coma. The mind is a continuum, constantly seeking import and export from the brain.
The human brain has been categorized into four parts, Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta. Some have added a Gamma brainwave above the Beta brainwave. It has been my experience, as well as my Chinese Teacher’s teaching, there is not a separate brain wave called Gamma. His teachings include four brainwaves, each of the four have three levels or called oscillating spheres with a total of twelve oscillating spheres of brainwaves. The twelve also correlate to the twelve realms of consciousness in the third dimension. I have also noticed some teach the higher frequency brainwaves, Beta and or “Gamma” brainwaves lead to higher consciousness. This teaching I feel is misguided. Some have taught the higher your brainwave frequency the more you heal. This is also very misguided information. I will give an example using an automobile as a metaphor. Beta is first gear, Alpha is second gear, Theta is third gear, and Delta is fourth gear. What would happen if you drove this automobile keeping it in first gear driving 70 MPH (112 KPH)? You would burn up the transmission. The same is true for the human brain. Stay in Beta too long, you will burn up the circuits in your brain. Continuing with this metaphor, you start with Beta and go through the next two and end up in Delta with full consciousness. The three oscillating spheres of Delta allow for healing, strong immune systems, and total connection to the lower and higher mind. Being fully conscious in Delta is the state of one who has mastered this dimension. In this world of stress and conditioned love, many live their life mostly in Beta causing much brain, mental, emotional, and spiritual diseases.
Science is now teaching as published in the Science Translational Medicine magazine in 2012, a report by Dr. Maiken Nedergaard, “She and her colleagues used a new imaging technique, two-photon microscopy, to show that mice brains, which are good models of human brains, have their own plumbing system for disposing of molecular detritus. Known as the glymphatic system, it hitches a ride alongside the brain’s blood vessels to pump cerebrospinal fluid through the brain tissue and wash waste back into the circulatory system, where the liver eventually disposes it.”
Dreams are a subject philosophers throughout the ages have written about. Science attempts to study, and many humans choose to live their life based on their dreams. Dreams can be so powerful they can cause sudden death during the sleep state; they can alter the course one has chosen to follow. Also, they can create relationships and or end relationships with self and or others.
So what about dreams? Each human has brain dreams, lower mind dreams and higher mind dreams. Right now I will write about brain dreams. I said earlier the brain has a beginning and an end. When the brain is developing in the womb it starts out as a very small strip of cells. Soon after, these cells multiply to about 12,000 cells every minute. How many of these cells are toxic, absorbed from the mother who eats a toxic diet, or lives in an environment of toxic waste?
Phillippe Grandjean is the author of “Only One Chance: How Environmental Pollution Impairs Brain Development — and How to Protect the Brains of the Next Generation.” He states, “We must learn from the past. The first confirmation in a rat model that methylmercury was toxic to the developing brain was published back in 1972. Yet children around the world are still exposed in the womb to levels of mercury that studies have shown reduce their mental abilities. We often suffer from “historical amnesia”, our common inability (or unwillingness) to learn from past experience. Now we have the luxury of looking back at the narrow-minded (and wrong) decisions that caused disasters like leaded gasoline, Minamata disease or Morinaga milk poisoning (arsenic). How will people in 20 years, or in 50, think about our lax attitude toward pesticides and other brain drainers and our miserable efforts to protect the brains of the next generation?
We use a specific part of our brains to plan for the future. Because some chemicals affect very specific brain functions, my recurring nightmare is that exposures during brain development are reducing our ability to plan for the future, leaving us unable to prevent even more chemical brain drain. It’s a vicious circle, and hopefully it is just a nightmare. But to quote Jonas Salk, “I have had dreams and I have had nightmares, but I’ve conquered my nightmares because I’ve had dreams.” Protection against chemical brain drainers should no longer be a dream. We need to make it happen.”
When one has a brain dream, and they have a toxic brain you end up with nightmares, dreams of being conquered, and dreams that promote fear. The lower mind, when connected to the higher mind does not promote or create nightmares, nor does it promote fear.
The lower mind often carries an attachment to past/future lives. When one has a lower mind dream, it will most often carry information circulating throughout your lives. This in itself can be very productive, as it allows for one to more clearly understand what is occurring in your other lives.
The higher mind is the golden triangle of unsurpassed beauty, knowledge, and wisdom.
The question often arises; how do I know when I have had a dream from the higher mind? A dream from the higher mind is always in full color, mixed with many different tones and pleasant sounds not heard by physical hearing. A dream from the higher mind will always include a bonding with your guides, and other aspects of your higher self. You wake up feeling full of energy; you can more clearly see the pettiness of the lower mind and brain trying to manipulate its way through physical life. You simply know, and know that you know what you need to do, what are your next steps, and most importantly you experience the full power of love. Not human love, but love. You know how to align yourself with the strings of innate intelligence, or you feel a strong urge of whom you can go to for assistance.
Your higher mind is continuously seeking to communicate with your lower mind and brain. It is important to understand your higher mind is not human, does not speak in human languages. The higher mind speaks in symbols and sounds. At the next Denver Intensive, “Ring of Truth” May 16, 17, & 18, 2014, Jonah will teach the importance of these sounds. Some people say they do not hear sounds or ringing. All humans do. What is critical to understand about these sounds, some people have learned to shut part or all of them off; many of these people experience headaches, and even have a pattern of migraines, not knowing why. It can even cause bipolar issues. Opening up this channel of sounds and knowing what they mean will assist in healing many health issues created through the pain of denial.
The human brain is the most powerful computer in human history; it is also the most destructive computer in human history, when toxic.
To my Advanced Students of Life Energy Flow Tai Yi, in August and November you will be taught powerful treatments for brain healing.
The above is based on the Teachings of Jonah, and the Chinese Master since the mid 1980’s.
