Neuroplasticity

rewiring the brain

By regularly checking your symptoms because you have been afraid of them, you have wired your brain into easily feeling them. Neuroplasticity is a component that creates ME/CFS. First you are fatigued because of the trigger, then you have drained yourself with the fight or flight mode and lastly you have hardwired your brain into easily feeling the terrible sensations of complete exhaustion. It becomes the automatic state of being, to be completely wired.

It can also be used the other way around and results can come very fast. Some people will heal completely by only learning to rewire their brain into feeling pleasant sensations. Some in a few days, others in months. By learning to rewire your brain and calming down your nervous system, you can change your auto state and switch your nervous system to the rest and digest mode. There is a big chance at feeling much better and recovering in a short time. It takes work and effort! It is a top-bottom approach and some strategies don’t deal with underlying and ongoing stressors that can still activate the stress mode.

Beside a neuroplasticity technique, there are also other ways of using neuroplasticity. Use a few of them regularly.

Imagination

Imagine eating your favourite fruit and feel what reaction is happening in your body. The concept of how helpful imagination can be, is not new. Over 10 years ago the author of ‘the secret’ already talked about it. But beside using it for material desires to mask an emotional wound, we can use the power of imagination for so much more. You can for example imagine being calm to calm down your nervous system. I have also seen a Belgian man on Dutch television that trained one biceps with weights and the other only by imagination, both of his muscles had grown. The one that had trained with real weights was just slightly bigger. It’s also known that thinking about hugging someone, makes the adrenals already release oxytocin. Athletes like to imagine their match before they start and it has been proven to help. If imagination is hard for you, because you are feeling so bad, then a neuroplasticity program aims to help you with that. Check out the neuroplasticity technique and make it a vibrant experience.

Beliefs

This world or reality is not what you think it is. Although the mainstream narrative seems to distract you from it, more and more scientists have come to understand that we are living in a hologram, an illusion.

When I realized that we are all living in an illusion, I started to heal by first achieving all my lifetime (egoic) goals within 16 months. I then gave up and surrendered to nothingness. Then I got ill as it was time to heal.

We are not just observers in this reality, we can be the creators of it. Our beliefs in the subconscious mind create our reality. Everybody is always right, as life will confirm their reality. So why is there a war going on about truth? Why so much peer-pressure for people with different beliefs?

At this moment, there are people living that can survive without food and drinks. There are people who meditate for a few hours that gives them more energy as an 8 hour night of sleep can do. People are running marathons in extreme weather conditions, like the iceman. You can have kundalini experiences if you want to, it feels amazing. Please reprogram your beliefs about reality, your body and yourself.

Travelling and rewiring

As weird as it might sound, travelling is a good recommendation when you are having ME/CFS. Not the type of travelling where you get drunk, climb mountains before sunrise or sleep next to a karaoke bar. Maybe that was what travelling used to look like before with a stressful personality. No, you can relax on a beach, spend your days sunbathing somewhere nice, be in nature and go for small walks. The experience of travelling will get you out of your daily routine. By having new experiences, you are building new pathways in the brain.

Results will come over time

In order for neuroplasticity to work, you could change your daily routine,  and you can imagine it. Use the technique in the above video whenever you feel bad / stressed / symptomatic. Go repeatedly back to your best memories. Feel how it was to be you in that situation and make it as alive as possible. What did you see, what did you feel, who was there, can you recreate that smile right now? Do this for lets say a minute or 2 and really imagine it to be your current experience, be precise and detailed. Exaggerate your experience and create new situations. After every time, your symptoms might decrease a little. You can do this process hundreds of times a day. Check if it lowers your heart-rate and calms your mind.

Some recovery programs are based soley on applying this technique.

Affirmations

Affirmations make us leave a chronic state of resistance and can make us come back into alignment. Focussing on what you want is better than focussing on what you don’t want. If you state that healing from ME/CFS is impossible, then that will be your reality. It might be hard to focus on something else than your horrible symptoms, but it is not impossible. Take the pressure to heal away and just give positive statements. It will be more likely to get out of the chronic fight or flight mode when you focus on what feels good, rather than what doesn’t.  Look into Louise Hay and Abraham Hicks to find out more about it.

Hypnosis

The state between sleep and being awake is called the theta state of the mind. Little children are almost all the time in this state. In this state you are very prone for suggestions and you can easily learn things. In some forms of hypnosis you can reprogram yourself. A local practitioner would likely be very helpful to inform you of the possibilities.

In one treatment form you can rewrite your life story in the way that would have been ideal for you to grow up. This treatment form can turn off the stress response of your nervous system and make you feel much better fast. Of course it is not a miracle cure and you should invest yourself in being able to do this on a daily basis yourself.
