How you can change your brain

I recently discovered Dr. Daniel Siegel, who has plenty of research and information to back up what some of us have intuitively known: that the mind and the brain are distinct entities, and that you can use the mind to change the brain. Here’s an introduction to his ideas about how to change the brain.

I’ll be writing a lot more about this later. I’ve been viewing and digesting various videos of his, and it’s somewhat slow going, when I have to stop every 3 minutes to take notes. But it’s good work, and well worth the effort.

Watch, learn, and enjoy.

I am a long-term multiple (mild) Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI or TBI) survivor who experienced assaults, falls, car accidents, sports-related injuries in the 1960s, '70s, '80s, and '90s. My last mild TBI was in 2004, but it was definitely the worst of the lot. I never received medical treatment for my injuries, some of which were sports injuries (and you have to get back in the game!), but I have been living very successfully with cognitive/behavioral (social, emotional, functional) symptoms and complications since I was a young kid. I’ve done it so well, in fact, that virtually nobody knows that I sustained those injuries… and the folks who do know, haven’t fully realized just how it’s impacted my life. It has impacted my life, however. In serious and debilitating ways. I’m coming out from behind the shields I’ve put up, in hopes of successfully addressing my own (invisible) challenges and helping others to see that sustaining a TBI is not the end of the world, and they can, in fact, live happy, fulfilled, productive lives in spite of it all.

  1. BB,

    Another video to watch . . . I’ve heard of this guy, but never heard or read him. I very recently started to understand the difference between mind and brain – ie that they were separate entities, and the dysfunction of one is not the dysfunction of the other. I’ll watch it tomorrow – hopefully just up for a few moments. Man, it’s been a rough week.
