1. Why three brains?
Our first brain is the most obvious: the cerebral brain of course. Our second brain is the intestine and I am glad it is talked about a lot nowadays (see the book The Psychobiotic Revolution: Mood, Food, and the New Science of the Gut-Brain Connection).
Lastly, our third brain is the heart. The thing is, these three brains are connected to each other. Therefore they are influenced by one another. If I act on one of them, I am going to see a difference in the others.
2. What is reality?
The author of the French book Le coeur, ce cerveau négligé (The heart, this neglected brain), Gervais Saint-Laurent, explains that reality is an image created by our brain from connections made by the neurones. Therefore, pure objectivity does not exist.
3. What does manifesting mean therefore?
Consequently, manifesting your reality means taking advantage of this power, inherent to all human beings: whenever I maintain my thoughts and my intention on one topic, then I create it.
In quantum physics, it is proven that “Life replies to intention”. So our life circumstances respond to the frequency/vibe/energy we are emitting.
4. And physiologically, what is the heart?
First, the heart is linked to the intestines through the vagus nerve. It is our job to work on relaxing that nerve, through meditation for instance.
Second, the book The heart this neglected brain teaches us that the electromagnetic field of the heart is 5000 times more powerful that the one of the cerebral brain.
5. Living our own life, how and why?
In his book, author Gervais Saint-Laurent invites us to be brave enough to life for ourselves: “we are here to life our own life”.
We are not on Earth to life the life our parents chose for us, whether it is by duty, love or guilt.
Let’s grant us the permission to choose our life and our personal experiences.
6. How to get rid of cellular memories?
Old unconscious thoughts can be sometimes inherited and they pollute us on an unconscious level. However, the body can be cleansed from old ways of thinking stuck in cellular memory.
How? First by awareness, which flows from the heart to the brain. Then the intestines can play their elimination role by getting rid of what we don’t need anymore.
Gervais Saint-Laurent identifies three steps in the process of eliminating old memories: assimilation, elimination then rejoicing!
7. Is there such a thing as coincidence?
Of course chance does not exist inasmuch as we create our life! Contrary to animals, we as human beings possess free will which enables us to influence external circumstances. That is really one of the messages of that book that I love the most.
8. What is the heart major ability?
Our heart can transcend negative emotions. Sadness is turned into forgiveness. Resentment is turned into freedom.
9. How can I change my life?
I change my life when I marry intention and commitment writes Gervais Saint-Laurent.
10. What is the recipe for a successful life?
“Choose with awareness, transform with love and life with your gut“Le coeur, ce cerveau négligé
