The brain is so amazing! And we still barely know anything about all of its possibilities. What we do know is that our brains can continue to learn and grow throughout our lifetime.
I remember in my earlier self-healing experiences, I spontaneously tried something that helped me to understand that I could change my mind. I was sitting quietly and noticing that my self-talk was trash. So I literally just blurted out, "la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-blah-blah-fart-noise!" It gave me enough space to pause the negative self-talk and enough time to choose another direction to go. And I kept practicing that; it was light and funny and helped me create a new habit.
