Who Switched Off My Brain? by Dr. Caroline Leaf is probably the most fascinating book on the science of the brain from a Biblical perspective that you will ever read. Dr. leaf does a wonderful job of explaining how the brain was designed to work and her research wholly confirms why the application of Biblical principles are so powerful when you apply them in your life.
The benefits of capturing our thoughts, the importance of forgiveness and the power of our words are made crystal clear through her research examples. Dr. Leaf’s research is a clarion call to honesty and integrity in what we think, say and do, which is the first step in gaining the emotional and physical freedom we so desperately seek and need.
Dr. Leaf points out that negative words, which stem from toxic thoughts previously meditated on, actually reinforces them in your mind and create a negative stronghold. As result, your body reacts by releasing stress chemicals, which flow into your brain, and if they remain there for longer than 30 seconds it literally imprints your mind and impacts your thinking, your intelligence and your body!
Also included in this book are a set of “Brain Sweep” exercises designed to help you work through your thoughts and uncover toxic emotions, thoughts and feelings that have been negatively impacting you and your relationships. Included with this is also a journaling process that helps you to see on paper what your thoughts really look like and the impact of your words on others and yourself.
The Bible makes it very clear that we have a free will and science has now proven through epigenetics that when we change our thoughts we can change our world. The good news is that while we all have a genetic predisposition for certain things, we are not victims of our biology! We always have a choice regarding how those genetics actually play out in our lives.
Dr. Leaf presents her research in plain, easy to understand language and her practical action steps make this book one you will want to include in your library for sure. I highly recommend you get your own copy of Who Switched Off My Brain? by Dr. Caroline Leaf as it truly is a life-changing book.
