Your brain is made of approximately 100 billion nerve cells, called neurons.  Neurons gather and transmit electrochemical signals that tell different parts of your brain to carry out different tasks.  Your brain gives you the power to speak, imagine and problem solve.  It controls your body temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and breathing.  It accepts a flood of information about the world around you and from your various senses (seeing, hearing, smelling, feeling and touching).  It handles your physical movement, lets you think, dream, reason and experience emotions.  All of these tasks are coordinated, controlled and regulated by an organ that is about the size of a small head of cauliflower.  It is truly an amazing organ.

Your brain is the computer that drives the machine that is your body.  And for those that know anything about a computer – it can be programmed and reprogrammed, and yes – the motherboard can crash as well.

To put it rather simply:  In terms of you and I, our beliefs and habits (automatic behaviour) = our computer programme.  Therefore, beliefs and habits adjusted = being reprogrammed.  Another way to say this is:  Our beliefs and habits (automatic behaviour) = our established neuro patterns.  Therefore, beliefs and habits adjusted = establishing new neuro patterns.

Practice and repetition strengthens the new patterns, thus forming new neural pathways.
