I am NOT my Brain

I am NOT my Brain. 

My brain is a tool that I use to interact with my environment. 

Sustaining a Traumatic Brain Injury forced me to learn how to use my brain and NOT have my Brain use ME. 

When I can silence my brain by engaging in activities that require concentration and mindfulness, such as playing the guitar, listening to music, meditation, or exercise, I am able to block out all the negative energy. This gets me into a space between my Brain and the Universe. 

I think of this space as my mind, my spirit, my soul, my psyche, etc.  This special space is NOT in my Brain. 

My Brain didn’t come with an owner’s manual, however by carefully observing the activities going on in my brain, I realized that I was in control and not the other way around. 

I am able to teach my brain new programs that will reduce, anxiety, depression and other mental challenges. 

Activities that help me teach my brain include: Playing the guitar, listening to music, Exercise, Meditation, Mindfulness, Journaling, Talk Therapy, etc. 

“To say that the brain creates the self is like saying that paintings create their painters.” 

I am NOT my Brain. 

One Step at a time and “Always Believe.”
