Information flows through eyes, ears and other senses



                   Doorway of the mind



                   Thalamus and hypothalamus
                   (transmits electrical data though
                   your brain activating existing
                   thoughts)

                   Breeze through the Trees

Attitude
This process activates your attitude.
Def: a state of mind (all thoughts on the trees) that influence our choies and
what we say and do as a result of our choices.
Resulting in causing a feeling.

      Negative memory:
                Causes bad attitude
                Sends information back to memory – feelings of fear, can’t
                 do it
                (negative emotions) and ultimately blocking the building of
                 new information
                Makes the situation worse
                Creates an anxious feeling
                Recognize it – the awareness is good
                Deal with it
                Don’t suppress it

The hypothalamus links to the “trees” and releases chemicals in response to
emotion. Bio-chemicals in your body carry feelings.

Fear-based feelings                      Love-based feelings
      Bitterness                               Joy
      Anger                                    Peace
      Hatred                                   Trust

      Depression                               Gentleness
      Confusion

     Fear-based chemicals are distortions of faith-based chemicals.

     Powerful
     Chemicals flow to build memories and emotions.




                  Information drops into the amygdala
                  (Emotional perception)
                  Designed to protect you from any threat to your body &
                            mind.
                  Is it truth or fact?

                  Deals with love-based and fear-based emotions.
                  Perceptions store emotional perceptions but could
                   be incorrect.

                  Like a Library

              Emotions are activated every time we build a memory.
              Is in constant communication with the hypothalamus
              Causes body to feel reactions to thoughts

                   Then flows into the hippocampus.
                   Information stays in the hippocampus for 24-48 hours.

                      Corpus Callosum (C-shaped structure in brain)
                         Connects two sides of the brain
                         The harder we think the more change we can make.
                         Actually does your thinking
                         Analyzes information
                         FREE WILL code actually has a structure in your
                           brain (in the front – shown by small blue dots)
                         Reads information based on your FREE WILL and
                           have a choice to accept information – in your control.
                         You activate it.

Thinking       = ask/answer/discuss

Thinker        = corpus callosum

Thinking       = ask/answer/discuss
               = understanding
               = good memory




“AHA” Moment!
     Both sides of the brain are thinking
     Grows branches in your memory
     Physically changes the structure of the brain

Attitude will occur at free will point in the brain.

You can make a decision and get rid of bad thoughts when the thoughts pass the
free will point.

When reject bad thoughts – becomes heat energy
When accept good thoughts push them into the branches of your mind to build
good memories and information.
Location of Soul in the brain
       Intellect - Hippocamus and Corpus Callosum
       Will – front of the Corpus Callosum
       Emotion - Hypothalamus

Soul is under direct attack from Satan daily with five senses

Endorphin rush and then drops to a low

Battleground in brain – and gets down into spirit.

Bad memories look different compared to good memories

Toxic memories grow black clouds in your brain, causes actual thorns to grow

Can activate chemical release when even think of negative memory
and then actually relive and feel the emotions of that memory.

Renewing the mind – fixes these strongholds. Romans 12:2

Forgive
Unforgiveness, Hurt, pain – grow thorn trees and will eventually dominate all you
do.

87% of illnesses come from toxic thoughts

How do I get rid of toxic thoughts?
   Get thorns off the tree by repentance and forgiveness.
   Forgive self, other person. Break that memory down.
   As forgive and thorns fall off, dissolve and can actually be reconstructed.
   Release into God’s hands to do work

      Negative memories Corrosive to your brain
      Maintaining anger disrupts physically
      Can build a new memory over an old one once forgive

The Heart-Brain
    Brain in our heart
    40,000 nerve cells
    Links to your free will area in your brain (Heart links to the brain)
    Heart is the Small still voice
    In constant communication with your brain
    Works on a moral conscious
    Heart heavy feeling it isn’t secreting a chemical (ANF) to the brain -
    ANF is a balance and motivation hormone
    The message from the heart affects behavior
    The heart is the body’s strongest oscillator – it pulls every other system of
     the body into its own rhythm.
    Surrender free-will to God, reject thought
    Heart helps break down memories
    Need guard your mind through Christ Jesus
    The heart at peace or filled with love, the entire body under the direction of
     the brain feels peace and love.
    When your thought life is toxic, your heart is heavy and burdens your body
     and mind (Physical state)
    Love speeds up the heart – brain communication
    Love actually conquers all – releases chemicals related to love, most
     powerful that your hypothalamus can release.
    Acts as the seat of conscience and moral character
     2 Samuel 24:10
     Acts 2:37
     1 John 3:20
    It is the sphere of divine influence – the Holy Spirit speaks to our spirit
     here
     1 Peter 3:4
    When the heart has received the Word through the mind and exercised its
     spiritual powers on it, the Word is no longer void and has accomplished
     God’s purpose.
    When you get your inside world – your mind and heart put right, then you
     can see God in the outside world (Matthew 5:8)
