Lost in translation
Many people have been struggling with positivity their whole lives. As negative emotions arise, they know that these emotions must be transmitted to joy in order to raise their vibration, but sometimes the struggle seems almost impossible. The law of attraction states that what you think you will create. A deeper understanding of why this law works lies in the chemistry of the brain and how your heart and brain interact with each other.
The heart and the brain send signals to each other all of the time. One misnomer is that the brain runs the show, but the truth is that the heart is the epicenter of creation. While voluntary muscles get signals from the brain, the heart, which is an involuntary muscle actually runs the show from behind the curtain.
Your heart generates neuropeptides which are small protein-like molecules (peptides) used by neurons to communicate with each other. These neuropeptides are the food that your brain uses to create your reality and this creates an emotion or energy that reflects the state of being of these neuropeptides. All emotions produce a physical feeling in your body that originate from the neuropeptides that have been pumped into your bloodstream from your heart. Your heart tells your brain how to react and what to do.
The brain cells have receptors that are created to assimilate the food (neuropeptides) they receive. These receptors are formed to accept that food and are used to that kind of food. You are therefore used to those kinds of emotions created by that kind of food.
Every second millions of brain cells die off and new ones are birthed. If you change the type of food that feeds your brain, your brain can create new transmitters that fit the new food. As old neurotransmitters die off in new transmitters are created, it gets addicted to the new transmitters which can create positive feelings.
