Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
We have a brain that is incredible, and a challenge at times. The lower part of the brain is in charge of keeping us safe. It is still in the mode of running if there is a danger. The danger is no longer something that will eat us (except our cell phones or screens of some other means). We are now having to learn to work with our lizard brain as something that can be managed. According to brain researcher Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor we have a full 90 seconds before we react or act. If we learn to act, even though that person has made me feel like I am non-human, we can have a much smoother life. We don't let the part of ourselves take over when someone is not doing what we think they should be doing. We can step back and find a place that is not so reactive. We can realize that the person that we are concerned about (the over-bearing boss or co-worker) is just using their lizard brain.
The lower or lizard brain, will hold on to things that are irritating for a long time. It wants to figure out what happened. We need to realize that we can expand and make these slights into big things. (Just wait until I see so and so again...) Understanding that we can step back and see this problem from a different point of view, like someone else who this would not bother. This different perspective can make a big difference.
LENS neurofeedback can help the brain to run in a different, smoother manner. It is gentle and safe and effective.
