Happiness simply depends on how we view life …

Really, happiness depends simply on how we see life.

A simple act, like to savour a little body, can be a huge source of happiness, if we only decide. As my Mama would say, what a wonderful vine!!

And science is right.

More and more scientists are joining the research of the spirit and energy of love. I share a very interesting interview  that La Vanguardia Digital gave to Dr. Mario Alonso Puig who is a Specialist Physician in General Surgery and digestive device, Fellow of Harvard University Medical School and member of the New York Academy of Sciences and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
“Until now the enlightened, the meditators, and the wise said it; now science also says: it is our thoughts that have largely created and continually created our world. “Today we know that self-confidence, enthusiasm and illusion have the ability to favor the brain’s superior functions. The prefrontal area of the brain, the place where the most advanced thinking takes place, where our future is invented, where we value alternatives and strategies to solve problems and make decisions, is tremendously influenced by the limbic system, which is our emotional brain. So what the heart wants to feel, the mind ends up showing it to it.” You have to train that mind.

I’m 48 years old. I was born and live in Madrid. I’m married and have three children. I am a general surgeon and digestive system at the Hospital de Madrid. Flexibility and tolerance must be exercised and developed. You can be very firm with behaviors and kind to people. I’m a Catholic. I just published Leading Wood (Active Company)

IMA SANCHES – 18/10/ 2004

More than 25 years of surgeon. Conclusion? 

-I can attest that a person who is excited, engaged and self-confident can go far beyond what would be expected for his journey.


-Yes, it is science that studies the connection that exists between the thought, word, mentality and physiology of the human being. A connection that defies the traditional paradigm. Thought and word are a form of vital energy that has the ability (and has been demonstrated sustainably) to interact with the body and produce very profound physical changes.

What is it? 

-It has been shown in several studies that one minute entertaining negative thinking leaves the immune system in a delicate situation for six hours. The distrés, that feeling of permanent agobness, produces very surprising changes in the functioning of the brain and in the hormonal constellation.

What kind of changes? 

-It has the ability to injure neurons in memory and learning located in the hippocampus. And it affects our intellectual capacity because it leaves those areas of the brain most needed to make the right decisions without blood supply.

Do we have resources to fight the inner enemy, or is that wise thing? 

-A valuable resource against concern is to bring attention to abdominal breathing, which alone has the ability to produce changes in the brain. It promotes the secretion of hormones such as serotonin and endorphin and improves the tuning of brain rhythms between the two hemispheres.

Change the mind through the body? 

-Yes. We must draw the spotlight from those thoughts that are altering us, causing discouragement, anger or concern, and that make our decisions start from an inappropriate point of view. It is smarter, not more reasonable, to bring the spotlight to breathing, which has the ability to calm our mental state.

Do you say that you don’t have to be reasonable? 

-We will always find reasons to justify our moodiness, stress or sadness, and that is a certain line of thought. But when we rely on how we want to live, for example without sadness, another line appears. What and why are more important than how. What the heart wants to feel, the mind ends up showing it.


-When our brain gives meaning to something, we live it as the absolute reality, without being aware that it is only an interpretation of reality.

More resources….  

-The word is a form of vital energy. It has been possible to photograph with positron emission tomography how people who decided to speak to themselves in a more positive way, specifically people with psychiatric disorders, managed to physically reshape their brain structure, precisely the circuits that generated these diseases.

Can we change our brains with good words? 

-Santiago Ramon y Cajal, Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1906, said a tremendously powerful phrase that at the time we thought was metaphorical. Now we know it’s literal: “Every human being, if proposed, can be a sculptor of his own brain.”

Are you sure you don’t exaggerate?

-No. According to how we speak to ourselves we shape our emotions, which change our perceptions. The transformation of the observer (we) alters the observed process. We don’t see the world it is, we see the world we are.

Are we talking about philosophy or science? 

-Words alone activate the tonsil nuclei. They can activate, for example, the nuclei of fear that transform hormones and mental processes. Scientists at Harward have shown that when the person manages to reduce that inner cacophony and enter silence, migraines and coronary pain can be reduced by 80%.

What is the effect of unspoken words? 

-We usually confuse our views with truth, and that is transmitted: perception goes beyond reason. According to studies by Albert Merhabian of the University of California (UCLA), 93% of the impact of a communication goes below consciousness.

Why is it so hard for us to change? 

-Fear prevents us from leaving the comfort zone, we tend to the safety of the known, and that attitude prevents us from realizing ourselves. To grow up you have to get out of that area.

Most of the acts of our lives are governed by the unconscious. 

-We react according to some automations that we have been incorporating. We think that spontaneity is a value; but for there to be spontaneity there must first be preparation, but there are only automations. I am increasingly convinced of the power of mind training.

Give me any hints. 

-Change thinking habits and train your integrity by honoring your own word. When we say “I’m going to do this” and we don’t physically alter our brains. The greatest potential is consciousness.

See what’s there and accept it.

-If we accept ourselves for who we are and for what we are not, we can change.

What resists persists. Acceptance is the core of transformation.”
