There has certainly been a lot of information out there on how our thinking affects our lives and even our mental and physical health. Dr. Caroline Leaf speaks of research that shows 75-98% of Mental & Physical Illnesses Come From Thought Life.

Dr. Leaf says, "When we make a poor quality thinking decision—i.e. a toxic thought such as unforgiveness, bitterness or irritation—we change the DNA and subsequent genetic expression affecting the shape of the wiring in our brain in a negative direction. This immediately puts the brain into protect mode and the brain translates these poor quality toxic thoughts as stress. This stress will then manifest itself in our bodies."

It's quite amazing that science is catching up with the fact that we can actually change our DNA. We are not trapped into the diseases or lifestyles of our family tree. When we become Christians and Jesus followers we become a whole new creation in the spirit realm. All we need to do is access the power of this to change our entire lives. When Romans 12:2 tells us to transform our lives with the renewing of our minds, it's not pie in the sky theology. God doesn't tell us to do things that are not humanly possible.

What we feed into our brains is so critical and when you consider all the negative media news on television, in newspapers, online and bantered back and forth in everyday conversations, we will realize that we're fighting a losing battle unless we make some choices to change things. We have to replace those toxic thoughts with healthy ones or our minds, bodies and spirit will respond in negative ways.

Christians shouldn't have depression and despair. The Bible tells us how to conquer all things, but sadly, the Bible and its Truth is not a priority in many homes today. Negative television programming commands center stage and if you don't think that watching murder, adultery, and a long list of other negative behaviors doesn't affect you, you are being deceived.  At the end of the day, does this Scripture sum up what your thought life has been?

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." -- Philippians 4:8

We may be wired with a lot of toxic thoughts, but God tells us we can renew our minds, even though the devil tells us we can't do it. I've been working through the 21-Day Brain Detox Program. This was created by Dr. Caroline Leaf, a Communication Pathologist, Audiologist and Cognitive Neuroscientist, who has researched the science of thought with a passion and has applied the findings of research and her experience in clinical practice for nearly 20 years into this program. She's a Christian and the program is God-centered. She's been all over the Christian broadcasting arena, so you may have seen a program with her as a guest speaker.  View a video about the 21-day program.

You take one toxic thought at a time and literally change the chemistry of the brain by following step-by-step instructions each day and then viewing a short video from Dr. Leaf explaining what physiologically took place in your brain the day before. It's like having a personal trainer for mind renewal!  I love it!

What could be more important than being able to get those awful thoughts out of the racetrack in our brains?  Dr. Leaf has books that give you a lot of scientific information, in layman's terms, about how our thoughts affect our bodies, and even our genes (epigenetics). View Dr. Leaf's books on Amazon.

We have enjoyed the one titled, "Who Switched Off Your Brain?: Solving the Mystery of He Said / She Said," which has been fun to read with my honey since we have always known we were total opposites, but this shows us why and also the wisdom of God in designing us that way.

Don't let your thoughts control your life in a direction that you don't want to travel in. There is hope and there is change. View Dr. Leaf's Facebook page for many comments and testimonials for the program. By the way, it's only $29 for a year's subscription. You go from one 21-day program into another one as you work through the most important toxic thoughts that you want to totally eradicate from your brain.

In a year you can do 17 of these detoxes.  She's got my vote since the program has done a lot for me.  My husband has been amazed and that really makes me excited. View Dr. Leaf's schedule of speaking engagements around the world.  I had a friend go to one of her presentations and she absolutely loved it!

I don't make anything from you signing up, but I would love to know if you did so I know that we're on the journey together!
