On yesterday's blog I listed typical beliefs people have who have poor memory skills. Most people thing ability to perform at anything is inborn "I have a poor memory". "I don't have the genes" etc. However, performance at anything, including memory is largely contingent on how good you believe you are. The brain is as obedient to what we put into it as a computer. There was a phrase in the 90's "Garbage in Garbage out". It was used to describe computer programming. Interestingly your brain works the same way. You put beliefs in and your brain will work to confirm them. I have seen attractive people treated as though they were unattractive because they believed they were unattractive. Smart kids under perform in school because they believed they were not smart. The corollary of this is that people who believe they are smart tend to develop into smart people. The same can be applied to any skill.
Recently I read the book "The Healing Code". It is about doing energy work to heal physical ailments by erasing the memories in the entire body of the belief or emotion that caused the ailment. It exposed the idea that thinking and feeling are included in all organs of the body and not just the brain. This can be applied to beliefs about your memory skills. Whether it's your liver, heart, kidneys or brain, if you believe you can't memorize things your whole body will stop you. I would recommend the book to anyone who needs to heal physically or emotionally.
Well, I have given you something to think about. In tomorrow's blog we will feature a specific way to change your limiting beliefs about your ability to memorize.
