Happy Halloween, Witches!
We are all Witches and Warlocks.
We all have great power.
We can all cast spells.
This is scientific fact.
The frontal cortex is the area in our brain that plans, and believes. This lone area sets us apart from every other creature. It is what physically, and cognitively, defines our humanity because no other animal has the ability to believe, or plan for the future.
When we set an intention, a goal, we ignite our own humanity, firing up our uniquely human area of our brain. Neuroscience has found that writing down and saying our goals aloud further lights up our brains, making the goals even more likely to happen.
This is a spell that you cast on yourself. Read the incantation out loud. Again and again. Believe it. Visualize it. Watch the magic you create.
Goal setting is powerful. Set a goal for yourself, write it down, and speak your spell daily. What you are doing, exactly, is triggering your human powers. You are redesigning your behavior, and setting ideas into motion.
Happy Halloween. Cast a spell on yourself.
