What is it that keeps so many people mired in a bad relationship, unable to break free or to do
what it takes to fix it? Why do some people always seem to be sick, or too exhausted to enjoy
life? How about you—do you find yourself wondering, “Is this all there is?” To you, does the
grass always seem greener in someone else’s life?
Maybe you have difficulty making decisions and sticking to them. Or maybe you know you have
bad habits, but you can’t seem to break them. Why is it that your to-do list becomes the most
important thing in your life, the second your head hits the pillow?
When things are going great do you find yourself constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop?
When someone cuts in front of you on the road, are you consumed with anger and find that it
affects the rest of your day? If someone in your family leaves the cap off the toothpaste tube, do
you react far out of proportion to the seriousness of the offense?
During my career as a medical doctor I have discovered that the key to nurturing the mind-body
connection is dealing with questions like these. Our brain runs everything we do; it is
omnipresent as it directs, plots, and maneuvers us through our lives. Of course, we also need it to
keep our heart beating and our lungs breathing. It is the same brain, for the most part, that has
existed in the heads of Homo sapiens for more than 200,000 years.
A few years ago, a patient encouraged me to “motivate him” with a weekly email message. I decided others might benefit from the same kind of motivation, and so began my weekly message series.
As my messages explored more and more subjects and the number of readers grew larger, I began to receive emails from people who told me that what I wrote seemed to be speaking directly to them. This ability to connect might have something to do with the fact that I have been an internist for more than twenty years and have a lot of experience dealing with all aspects of my patients’ lives. My patients always inspire me. Nevertheless, everything I write is based directly on my personal insight and experience.
I am now excited to share with you the continuation of my journey, so it can become part of yours.
When you learn to stop your own personal brain drain, you will remove the single greatest obstruction to the flow of positive energy into your life. You will understand and take control over that which makes you feel endangered, threatened, or vulnerable and not react automatically to it. You will begin to see life through your mind, and understand that you will always find a way and a way will always find you, attracting the abundance that you deserve.
