Who Switched off My Brain?

Good morning, dear Family and Friends.  I got this email from Dr. Leaf and want to share it with you – I have attached it for you.

Have you studied Dr. Leaf’s work yet?  Her work is quite awesome amazing.  Friends and family know me as a basically positive and cheerful person, a result of knowing Christ for sure, yet my husband Tom recently commented that I am “brighter and lighter.” I know this is the result of my using Dr. Leaf’s work.

This research has been confirmed and studied by many other neuroscientists.  Dr. Leaf’s work can be immediately used in a immediate and simple way.  You just state the truth to yourself, within or aloud, replacing dark thoughts and you begin to remove physical toxic axon trees from your brain.   The result is an increase of health in all your body’s systems.

Understanding that there is such a enormous connection between our thoughts and shaping our brain physically and healthily, is a huge and strengthening motivation to ongoingly and quickly replace dark thoughts with healthy and true ones.

Research shows that when we allow toxic thoughts of discouragement, irritation, frustration, negative self talk, depression, bitterness, anger, judgmentalism (i.e condemning someone – it is not condemning to recognize a behavior as destructive, for such recognition itself is essential to our health as well), hate, disrespect, or discouragement to remain unchallenged, these thoughts then take on a literal physical axon form in our brains, and begin a destructive process in us.

Failing to speak the truth to ourselves within 24 to 72 hours works havoc in our emotions, and bodies, destroying our healthy functioning and abilities, and debilitating our capacity to function healthily, messes up our capacity to make good choices and distorts our perspectives of reality in a destructive ways for us.  Her research shows that speaking the truth in this way will begin to restore our brains and health within 3 days.

A healthy response is simple.  We remove these dark thoughts by replacing them soon as we recognize them with healthy thoughts of their correlate truth, like “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faith”  – hmm, heard those before?

It is so NOT complicated – but it is necessary, if you are interested in not sabotaging your own good health and life well-being, and so enjoy a good, joyous future.

Neuroscience research shows that we can even remove stuck patterns of behavior that such toxic axons in our brain cause when we receive such negative thoughts without replacing them, patterns like bursts of anger; over all negativity and pessimism (which all fields of science are now recognizing as one of the most hurtful patterns of all); paranoia; depression; criticalness; fear; anxiety;  bad relational interactions; destructive competitiveness and discouragement.  Dr. Leaf’s research shows that such ingrained patterns can removed through a single one minute-process, used just 2 to 7 times throughout your day, over 21 days.   Her latest book, Switch On My Brain, tells about this process.  Dr. Leaf is giving much help through her work to both secular and faith people and audiences all over the world.

I attach a very short 13 point sum up of Dr. Leaf’s first book for you, Who Switched Off My Brain.  These simple points are some ways her research has found to keep our brains and bodies healthy as well.  Reviewing this 13 point list semi-regularly will make a difference for us!   I made a copy of this list just this morning and am going to put it on next month’s page of my wall calendar, and do this monthly, so I can see it and be reminded of these points. I encourage you to consider doing this also.

Dr. Leaf shares about this all along her latest findings, in her new TV show that just started January  7.  You can watch Dr. Leaf’s second episode online at the link below in her email, and her first episode too.  I just checked my TV channel listing…here in NY on Dish’s TBN channel, # 260.   You can record it to watch at the best time for you.  Check with the listing of your own TV carrier in your area.  You can also email Dr. Leaf to get the time of her show in your own area at  mac@drleaf.com  See drleaf.com/about/dr-leafs-research/

With love & prayers for many blessings on your day and much health in your New Year!

The Power of Right Believing

power-right-believingThe other day Camilla and I were watching a movie called Silver Linings Playbook. At the end of the film I wanted to hug every character in it and give them a copy of The Power of Right Believing by Joseph Prince. I say that because everyone in the movie was broken or damaged in some way. Some had suffered loss, others had been unfairly treated, but nearly all of them were experiencing emotional pain or were in some way afflicted by a mental disorder….

A re-post from the blog of Paul Ellis:  Continue reading

Your Perfect Heart (Part 1)

“For the Eyes of the Lord run to and from throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9

In the New Covenant God says He has given us a new heart – “I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.  And I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statues, and you shall keep My judgments, and do them.” Ezekiel 36:26:27KJ

“According to the grace of God which is given to me, I have laid the Foundation.  But let every man take heed how he builds upon it.  For no other foundation can any man lay that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.   Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay stubble; every man’s work shall be made manifest…if any man’s work endures, he shall receive a reward.  If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss; but he himself shall be saved, yet so as by fire.” 1 Corinthians 3:10-12, 14-15

How can there be differences of reward when God has said it shall all be of grace?  When Zechariah saw the vision of the finished temple that pointed to our life and abiding place in Christ, the Lord said that it would come forth with the shoutings and cries of “It was all of Grace!” Zechariah 4:7   It is not what we build but how we build that God is speaking about here.  We don’t earn something by doing something for God, but we end with results that endure because of building God’s Way.  There is only one Foundation and that is Christ.  How we build once we are in Him is what results in work that will last for eternity.  When we build with “silver and gold” (these metals always  speak of God’s  Life) it results in “reward.”  This parallels how Jesus describes the work we are to do in John 6:29 -when the people asked Him what they should “do” to do the “works of God,” He answered them , “This is to do the works of God – believe in the One He has sent.”

When we trust Christ to be the Life, our new Heart and Spirit within us because of  our union with Him, the work that comes from this is then God’s own work being done through us and by Him, and so it has eternal and lasting results. There will then be “reward” just because only His work can last, for His work is to cause others to be born into His same Spirit.  This very birthing of new lives in the One True Life will be our “reward” which will be part of our joy forever, for these are born into Eternal Life Himself!

If we build with wood and hay, our doing our own kind of works for God, instead of building with the material of gold and silver, (again, these being His works that come through us as we walk by trusting Him to be our new Heart, Life, Power and Strength),  such work can not  last, as it will not result in His  kind of fruit.  Enduring fruit must come from the Enduring Vine.  If we have only “our” works, then, though we shall still be saved, we have still have Life forever in Him, it shall be as “through fire” as when a  person makes it through a house fire but loses all their possessions in the process.
-L. A.

What if: Love Unveiled in Power Disguised

“He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30


What if the one thing we most needed was weakness, and to decrease in our 
wrong kind of self estimations, so that we could really live? What if the 
one call we have is to this decrease, where it is all less and less about 
us, and all about Him, and others in Him? What if every moment in our life 
which is full of frustration and trial and sorrow, is but to bring us to 
this one place consciously, a place called the Cross-Life, where Jesus is 
Lord, and Life, and Love, and we His humbled vessels? What if His call to 
this humility is really just our call to become in understanding, just what 
He has already made us in fact to be, by His Finished work of that Eternal 
Power of the Cross called Love?

 What if this Place of the Cross is the only place where we can experience 
being utterly emptied out of all but this one Power of Love? What if upon 
seeing this in truth, we are then finally able to receive Love as the one 
true fact about our days, and so able to walk out, and in, this one Power 
point of our existence, the Place where we can receive meekly this minute 
this now-engrafted Word–Love? What if we were then able to understand that 
this is the Power we have been born into by that which we have called The 
Cross? What if we then began to rest deeply in such powerful Love, having at 
last received Him as all this with joy, and so could begin to walk in Him 
and glory in Him alone, this Wondrous and Amazing One?

 What if, at the end of it all, when all the irritations and upsets and 
sadnesses and traumas are unveiled before us, we find that we had actually 
been–ever since that first moment of our new birth into Him–we had been 
all along in this One Place of all and utter Power? And what if then we 
finally understand that it was and is all about this, the Cross-Life 
Himself, Love’s Power and Reign Supreme called the Everlasting Son Eternal, 
Jesus, the Christ?

 What then?

Why, I think then I’d laugh and run and sing for joy! Why not 
start now? Will you join me? I hear we’ve both been issued an invitation…

“I determined to know nothing among you save Christ, and Him crucified…” (1 Cor. 2:2).

”For the preaching of the Cross is to them that perish, foolishness; but unto us who are saved, it is the Power of God” (1 Cor 1:18).

“But God forbid I should glory save in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by Whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world” (Gal 6:14).

“A certain man made a great supper, and invited many, and sent at supper 
 time to say to them who were invited, ‘Come! for all things are now ready!” (Luke 14:16, 17).

New Legalism

Something to consider…

“How the push to be ‘radical’ and ‘missional’ discourages ordinary people in ordinary places from doing ordinary things to the glory of God….”

Is Paul’s urging to live quietly, mind your own affairs, and work with your hands (1 Thessalonians 4:11) only for losers? Do you feel that you’re wasting your gifts if you “settle” into an ordinary job, get married early and start a family, or live in a small town or suburb? Acton Institute Power Blogger Anthony Bradley has some provocative thoughts on the “new legalism.” —Marvin Olasky
