Where’s grace when you’re so far down you have to look up to see bottom?
Have you ever felt deeply loved and experienced deep depression at the same moment. There’s a neural related reason these two cannot co-exist. Opposite emotions cannot co-exist in your amygdala – since love is fueled by serotonin or dopamine (a well-being chemical) and depression is driven by toxic cortisol.
Hurray! Just uploaded my book which is rooted in a lifetime of wondering how faith and brains might fit together as a lived experience. It’s not intended to preach to others, simply to share with friends from inside new neural discoveries and a gift of faith that literally has saved my life at times, and given new meaning at other times. It was written to teach and remind me of the wonders of these two lifelines in my own life, and if it applies to yours I am richly blessed!
Negative emotional responses to hurtful situations – if held onto until they become your inner talk – will block your brain’s ability to enjoy the divine love you crave.
Good news though! Alter your focus from the problem and as you begin to engage a possibility. Growth mindset or possibility thinking often requires a shift to alter your choices from depression to delight. How so?
Each time you choose another inner possibility for grace to grow you also grow another new neuron pathway for its magic. Your brain creates a path from where to stand to peaks that benefit you more from fuel freely given – based on divine LOVE not blocked by your frailty or humanity. Soon this guide will become part of my new book called FINDING GRACE WHEN YOU LOSE YOUR SHOES which will be uploaded at my TpT site.
First ten copies of this practical handbook on Grace and the Brain, will be offered free to first ten people who email me!
