I hadn’t been to any conferences since our children were born, but the decision to attend was an easy one. My husband agreed to take care of all 3 little ones and we both prayed that our exclusively nursed baby would give me enough time to enjoy the speaker.
My dad had introduced me to her work years before. I was intrigued because there aren’t too many health or wellness professionals who can effortlessly explain the science and the scripture.
She didn’t disappoint.
Dr. Caroline Leaf stood before me describing the neuroplasticity of our brains in a way everyone could understand; weaving together how we can wither or grow pathways in our brains with the thoughts we think.
Yes, I’m a forever fan.
I’ve been reading books like Your Life Follows Your Words and Battlefield of the Mind for years, describing the power of human thought to help or hinder you.
I’ve stood next to patients who were wide awake while surgeons cut into their brain, witnessing the phenomenal data center that processes all that we encounter.
I’ve also studied how music can make a person with Alzheimer’s or a form of dementia recall information the medical world said they’d lost forever.
So the work of Dr. Leaf not only amplified what I was learning, it offered a fresh, practical and God centered way of thinking, learning and being.
Her latest book Think, Learn, Succeed: Understanding and Using Your Mind to Thrive at School, the Workplace, and Life is now available and I highly recommend it.
This book teaches you how to harness the power your thoughts so you can experience greater intellectual and work performance, emotional control, improved memory and relationships and mental and physical health.
Dr. Leaf wants you to learn how to learn, understand and master mental self-care and develop a whole mind lifestyle, so you can transform your life and the world.
