In order for us to build a new earth we need to change and upgrade our hormones, nervous system, and brain chemistry. Alberto Villodi, author of One Spirit Medicine, wrote an excellent book that makes the connection between our diet, the brain – gut health, and our ability to connect to Spirit and our higher self. He explained that most of the population is running on the limbic brain, which was created for survival and meeting just our basic needs. This part of our brain functions like an animal and is focused on feeding, fighting, fleeing, and fornicating. The human body was not created to operate for just these lower needs and we are cutting ourselves short of our mind-blowing capabilities when we draw our energy from these lower functions.
The limbic system is the part of the brain that craves sugar and cant turn down comfort foods. It is the center that is obsessed with food, in need of constant sex or attention, and suffers from addiction to mind dulling drugs and alcohol. When you are emotionally withdrawing, feeling biased or negative towards another person, or filled with destructive behavior you are functioning from this part of your brain. Most of us are not even aware that we are operating with these types of belief systems, and thus the world is being filled with fear, a lot of guns, and a tendency to run from ourselves. You can see the drive of the limbic system clearly displayed on social media with newsfeeds filled with, fear, food or sex.
If this is resonating with you or you know someone like this, I have some great news. There is nothing wrong with you! There is just something wrong with the neural connections of your brain and your hormonal chemistry and this can be fixed. We are entering new age on the planet – a Golden Age – and in order for us to be filled with inspiration, creativity and beauty, we need to start to work from primarily our Neocortex and not from the limbic system, which is the mammalian center. We can not begin to even envision a new future by repeating the past.
