Have you ever noticed that after you buy a new car, every time you turn around you are seeing the same kind of car everywhere when they were never noticed before?
This is what brain awareness does. There are so many images and things to see, our brains filter them and look only for evidence of that which is in our current awareness.
Where this really gets interesting is when our awareness is tuned into our thoughts – because the same kind of filter exists for things we think.
So when the dominant thoughts are:
Your brain goes to work filtering things around you to find evidence of your current awareness.
When your dominant thoughts are:
- Faith in people
Your brain also goes to work filtering things around you to find evidence of that current awareness.
Where it gets even more interesting than that, is when you begin focusing your thoughts on things more positive than negative. Is it “luck” when someone is in the right place at the right time, or are they simply aware of the possibility and thus sought out the evidence around them? This might be why some recognize opportunity and others completely miss it.
Where is your current awareness?
