Your Personal Brain Stage

   You may recall the famous quote to the effect that all the world is a stage and we are only players. Metaphorically, your brain has a stage and you are on it every waking moment of your entire life. One personal assistant (core emotion) is on stage with you at a time, with the other three waiting in the wings to move on or off the stage, one at a time, depending on the circumstances and events in your life. According to Candace B. Pert, PhD, a specific neuropeptide (a brain chemical than affects moods) may be associated with each emotion so you can experience only one core emotion at a time, although they can rapidly alternate on stage. Learn to identify quickly when emotions change on stage. Your brain will create a feeling about the emotion and what it means. Know that you have the power to change the way you feel by changing the way you think about the event or situation because feelings always follow thoughts. More tomorrow
