“There is another way of looking at the world.” When I read those words in A Course in Miracles (ACIM), I had no idea what a game changer they would be for me.
I realize now, after studying neuroscience, the Course was telling me a profound, but simple, secret to creating miracles AND rewiring your brain.
The secret is this: whenever you’re upset, disturbed or challenged, say to yourself: “There must be another way of seeing this.”
Then consciously and consistently change, or reframe, the way you interpret an event. It makes no difference if it’s true or not.
The moment you start telling yourself a new story, your brain’s wiring will change. And when your brain changes, your world changes miraculously.
Admittedly, reframing can be difficult. I’ve found three techniques that have helped me shift my perception—and, as I’ve only recently understood—reprogram my unhealthy beliefs and behaviors into much healthier ones (which, in itself, is a miracle).
