Part III of the series on Rewiring the Hardwiring of the human brain is by Geoffrey James with additional techniques on how to rewire your brain of negative events by weakening them and rewiring the brain with positive events to create more success and abundance in our lives. Geoffrey James’ article is provided in the following link:
The next article on rewiring the hardwiring of the human brain is by Jan Porter on the work of Rick Hanson, Ph.D., a neuropsychologist, Senior Fellow of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley, and New York Times best-selling author. His books include Hardwiring Happiness, Buddha’s Brain, Just One Thing, and Mother Nurture. Founder of the Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplative Wisdom, he’s been an invited speaker at Oxford, Stanford, and Harvard, and taught in meditation centers worldwide.

I recently watched the movie, “Awake: the Life of Yogananda” about the life of Paramahansa Yogananda, a yogi and guru who introduced millions of westerners from 1920 to 1952 to the teachings of meditation and Krya Yoga. Yogananda brought the concept of the science of religion to American that is religious practices can be explained through science, including the idea that the hardwiring of our brains from our past negative experiences can be rewired.
I have been vastly interested in this biological and psychological question, can the brain be rewired once it has been hardwired for addiction, trauma, and other negative life experiences? Neuroscience is explaining that this can be done due to brain plasiticity, and this is the first of a series of articles I will be sharing on my blog.
This first article is on the specific techniques on rewiring the hardwiring of the brain by Hilary Stokes…

With the advances in neuroscience, brain research as shown that physical wiring of the brain is effected by our thoughts moving through it. During periods of sustained attention, neurons will wire together to create neuropathways directly affecting what we experience in our lives. Therefore, if our thoughts involve fear, worry, and doubt, then more neuropathways will wire together causing us to experience more of these feelings in our lives.
This is known as neuroplasticity, also known as brain plasticity, and is defined as changes in neural pathways and synapses which are due to changes in behavior, environment and neural processes, as well as changes resulting from bodily injury. Neuroplasticity has replaced the formerly-held position that the brain is a physiologically static organ, and explores how – and in which ways – the brain changes throughout life.
Therefore, in order to change our neuropathways, we must begin by changing our thoughts to compassion, kindness, and unconditional love. I have witnessed changes in people I have observed who have changed the course of their lives to more positive results in that they met their perfect mate, got the job in their chosen field, and found a community of friends they longed for. The following posts provide specific methods and techniques to change our brain’s neuropathways as follows: Rewiring the Hardwiring, Rewiring the Hardwiring II, and Rewiring the Hardwiring III.
These positive results began with changes in their thoughts, whereby their neuropathways began to change, and resulted in concrete positive changes in their lives. Along with these positive thoughts, practicing acceptance and surrender will bring further peace and bliss into ours lives. It is wonderful to see that spiritual consciousness can be explained through modern science. (Copyright 2013 Awakening Journey with All Rights Reserved)
During these past few months, I have been confronted with some deep seeded distrust as a result of my childhood abuse by and a philandering father. As an adult, I attracted men like my father into my life causing more emotional injury and trauma to my life. This has translated into distrust of men that is deeply ingrained within me. These past emotional injuries resulted in deep blockages within my sacral and heart chakras. In my attempts to unblock these chakras, I have tried the following methods:
- Letting go what you can’t control and letting go of past emotions and behaviors through intention, belief, and actions
- Awareness of triggering thoughts, events, and statements by simply observing them without reaction
- Acknowledge your fears through stating them out loud or writing them down
- Forgive yourself and others for past mistakes and failures by accepting your past
- Learning to love yourself through self care, setting healthy boundaries with others, and nurturing yourself
At the root of distrust is the lack of self love and fear. When we fear betrayal and being hurt again, we have not forgiven ourselves and others for injuring us. We have not learned to love ourselves through setting clear and healthy boundaries with others, and taking responsibility for and control of our actions that are forms of self love.
When we learn to let go of the past through clear intentions that we no longer want certain emotions and behaviors in our lives, we follow up with the belief that we can and will change them, then follow through with consistent change in our actions. Good luck with healing your past emotional pain. (Copyright 2017 with All Rights Reserved)
My biggest hurdle is my jealousy from a sacral chakra blockage caused by childhood sexual abuse. This abuse began at the age of eight years old by my father creating an unhealthy triangulation between my father, my mother, and me. My father also had many sexual and romantic partners while married to my mother. My jealousy has to do with distrust of men, and feeling unworthy due to my relationship with my father.
Recently, I have felt pain and discomfort in my sacral chakra area, and suffer an urinary track infection. When we have blockages within our chakras, we are more likely to experience physical problems and illnesses in that region of the body. Although I am treating my symptoms with antibiotics, I must clear this deep and stubborn blockage in this chakra.
These blockages occur in many layers of pain and emotional wounds. I already have removed some of these deep and stubborn layers, but I still must work deeper and deeper to clear the remaining blockages. I us the following six techniques:
1) Creative practice (Dance, art, music, singing, etc.)
2) Exercise, particularly in nature
3) Hip opening yoga postures
4) Crystal healing
5) Throat chakra opening and clearing
6) Learning to let go of your past through Emotional Release Practice
Good luck with your sacral chakra clearing and healing journey. Sending blessings of love! (Copyright 2017 Awakening Journey with All Rights Reserved)
Many have commented and questioned about my Twin Flame relationship. These are the 14 signs and symptoms of Twin Flames relationship based on my personal experience as follows:
* Synchronicity and organic initial meeting (we met in person in Cinque Terre, Italy when we both live in the United States)
* Sexual experiences together are tantric (dual energetic circuits)
* Rise of Kundalini energy during the journey together
* Able to feel each other’s emotions and experiences from the beginning (energetically and emotionally)
* Similar life experiences and emotional landscapes although different races, ethnicity, and cultures
* Incredible compatibility (best friends)
* Intense sexual and energetic connection ( intense sexual chemistry)
* Time stands still during our journey together
* Similar core values
* Similar spiritual journeys
* Similar professions
* Similar interests
* Similar lifestyle
* Similar tastes and preferences
These are the 14 signs and symptoms that I have experienced with my Twin Flame while others may experience other connections . Although we also may experience these symptoms between two Kundalini active individuals, the compatibility and similarity between the two individuals are likely to diverge in their values, professions, interests, lifestyle, tastes and preferences. Every Twin Flame experience is slightly different, but the similarities outweigh the differences. It is both a compatible existence, but also a sexually intense connection.
The key to Twin Flame success is the ability to communicate about the intensity of this relationship, and working through the spiritual and emotional hurdles we face together. My twin and I spend time each day to share how we are progressing on our respective spiritual journeys and our emotional healing progress. We talk openly and authentically about our fears and how to work through the darkness we each face. Twin Flames trigger each other’s emotional wounds, and reflect back to one another our darkness and lightness.
When I address my concerns about my twin, I am truly addressing my own injuries and wounds. Whenever issues arise between us, I know I must do my own emotionally healing work just as he must do his work. We are working hard and progressing forward together as his Kundalini energy is rising now, and his emotional work must be done in order for this Kundalini rising to be smooth and without so much physical pain and discomfort as it was for me.
