Conversation With Your Brain

Conversation With Your Brain

There is a Cuban proverb that says, “Every head is a world.” Every invention is first an idea. Every creation begins first inside someone’s head. Inside your head right now is an idea, a beginning of something, a seed of creation. Your brain is filled with ideas, questions, information, and experiences.

This simple meditation will help you have an inspiring conversation with your brain. Read it here:

Close your eyes and bring your attention to your breath. Just let yourself breathe naturally, and rest your attention on your breath. Then begin to give yourself permission to relax more and more on each exhalation.

Now bring your awareness to your head. . . As you continue to breathe, imagine the intricacies of your brain, its complexities and its many functions. Imagine on each breath your brain is relaxed and open to your questions. Become aware of the power and potential of this organ. Within it is every moment of your life so far. Spend a couple of minutes visiting your brain. . . experiencing how extraordinary it is, the world of information and memories it holds. It can reveal to you any of its stored information. Imagine yourself holding a conversation with this part of you and ask it to reveal some idea it has been holding on to for you. Just breathe and ask, and trust what comes. What idea comes from it today? Let your brain visit with you. let it talk to you.

Now turn your attention back to your breath. And when you are ready, open your eyes and journal what your brain shared with you. Repeat the line “My great idea is. . .” every time you find you want to stop writing. Keep the pen moving until you have filled the page.

I have been trying to engage my brain in a conversation for some time; it apparently does not want to participate.
