Where is the time for us to sit down and not think about anything, but just relax and soak in silence? Our mind is constantly bombarded by external stimuli including the technology enable visual media all the time, which pushes the mind to keep thinking about whatever the eyes perceive. We have lost out on recognizing the power of the mind.
Mind is the central processing unit in the brain that sifts through all the information. It retains the required information in the subconscious to be able to retrieve when required and the rest it discards. Though the mind is capable of doing this function efficiently and keeps the clutter out, not many people are aware and use the will power to do so. They just tend to let the mind get crowded.
The mind has the immense capacity not only to hold the thoughts, but to process them and discard the unwanted information and delete it from the mind. Only the required information is stored in the memory and can be retrieved at any future point of time.
Whenever you need to take a decision on any matter, it is your mind that is going through all information that is available and arriving at a logical conclusion based on objective reasoning and tells you what to do and how to act. This is one of the most important functions of the mind apart from storing information.
When ever you wish to achieve something and have set your mind on certain goals. The mind works with the will and ensures that it leaves out the rest of the thoughts to focus only on the goal at hand. When this concentration is further strengthened by the will, you are able to pursue the goal with dedication and nothing can stop you from achieving your goals.
By the power of concentration of the mind, you will be able to visualize the direction in which you need to move forward and the steps you would need to take to reach your goal.
In people who meditate, who are peaceful and have powerful and calm mind, they are able to use the sixth sense or what is popularly known as sixth sense, which guides the individual to the right decision. This sense works at a higher dimension in our minds and needs to be developed sufficiently before we learn to base our decisions on our sixth sense. When we have not yet developed the habit of listening to our intuition, we are likely to get misguided by our conscious thoughts and mistake them for the intuition and can end up making mistakes.
Most of us underestimate the power and potential of the mind and tend to use it for carrying on with our day-to-day activities in life. Mind has unlimited potential to express itself and help you realize any goal that you want to achieve. You can unleash the power of the mind or brainpower to achieve your dreams by following disciplined approach and other scientific techniques like meditation.
