Create Your Own Reality?

By Alison Forster

During this past month I have come across this information three times, which in itself tells me I need to pay attention to it. And after reading the study for yourself you may find yourself wondering what is reality and what do our brains tell us is reality?

In a very early NASA experiment, they placed convex goggles on astronaut candidates that turned everything they saw upside down. They wanted to test the effects of this spatial disorientation on the astronauts' body systems. Would it make them nauseous, have high blood pressure, etc.?

What occurred after three to four weeks was something they did not expect. Each of the astronauts' brains started to turn everything they saw back right side up; while they were still wearing the goggles!

After three to four weeks, each of their brains had formed enough new neural connections to turn this lie into the truth. They had literally re-created reality. They extended the experiment to learn more about this, and, interestingly, when they completed the experiment and the astronauts took off the goggles, everything turned wrong side up again!

They also found that if the goggles were taken off during that three to four week period that this event would not occur. It takes the brain this long to build the new neurons. If we stop the process during the three to four weeks then we need to start all over again.

As we learn new things new synaptic connections are formed in our brains, by repetition, association and emotion. And the more connections there are, the more likely it is that this memory will stay on our 'Important List' nearly permanently.

Sometimes we allow the connections to be 'forced' on us. For example, if you were to be asked where you were last Wednesday at 15.00 hours, chances are you wouldn't immediately recall. But if you were asked where you were when you heard the news about 9/11 you would probably instantly recall. This is because you have repeated this experience many times, via the TV, newspapers, conversations with colleagues and friends. Thus making more and more neural connections until it has become a permanent memory, it has become a reality in your life.

So in future why not pay attention to the people, places and events that you want to be part of your life, of your reality. It's simply a question of making a choice about the connections. Remembering at all times the choice is ours to make, we can choose what to pay attention to and therefore actually 'create' our own realities!
