THE REPTILIAN BRAIN
Everywhere you go, you can see it: working people arguing and fighting against one another, commentators interrupting each other, insulting twitters and more. Our reptilian brains are being activated 24 hours a day.
Our president sends out tweets every weekend and then watches while the world reacts. As long as people are reacting from their reptilian brains, our president holds the Trump Card. As long as we are reacting, the president controls the discussion.
Advertisers have known this for decades. Sell to the Reptilian Brain. The emotional brain over-rides the thinking brain, but the reptilian brain over-rides everything. The reptilian brain is about survival. Kill it or Sex it.
But, is the Reptilian fight-or-flight response the real Trump Card? In 1991, Dr. J. Andrew Armour discovered the existence of a Heart Brain.
He discovered that the heart has a nervous system of its own, which works independently of the cranial brain. The heart brain sends directions to the thinking brain, which carries out orders.
This is the real Trump Card. The heart brain trumps the reptilian brain.
The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. responded to violence, prejudice, and hatred with unconditional love. Love was his “weapon of choice”. Love was Dr. King’s Trump Card.
The thinking brain speaks. The reptilian brain shouts. But, the heart brain listens. All behavior is either an expression of love or a cry out for love. This work is about activating your core and awakening your heart brain.
