How to Rewire Your Brain to Create New Habits
This methodical process for changing habits is based on neuroscience. Our brains wire neural circuits to support anything we do, making it, for example, easy to tie our shoelaces. The neural circuits we form support anything we do regardless whether it is good or bad for us. The art of creating new positive habits is to form a new neural habit circuits as quickly as possible, and as strong as possible, to counter a negative habit that we have already wired. The more methodical you are, the more successful you will be.
The first habits you should establish, if you haven’t already, are habits that support superconscious experience, especially meditation, because superconscious experience will not only transform you from within, it will supercharge your ability to form new neural habit circuits to support any other goal you choose. The more attuned you are to your innate superconscious awareness, the more dynamic you become; the more dynamic you are, the more rapidly and successfully you can form new neural habit circuits.
