This fascinating clip from You Tube shows the power of mirror neurons between a child and it’s mother and the impact her lack of communication has. It’s very powerful, quite upsetting in fact when she withdraws her attention.
The human brain has multiple mirror neuron systems that specialize in carrying out and understanding not just the actions of others but their intentions, the social meaning of their behavior and their emotions.
We are social creatures, and our survival depends on understanding the actions, intentions and emotions of others. Mirror neurons allow us to grasp the minds of others not through reasoning but through direct simulation -feeling, not thinking.
You can begin to see the power of this process and it’s implications for us a human beings, what and who we have in our environment; as parents what our children pick up intuitively, and for any relationships you have or create.
I work with a lot of clients who experience depression and anxiety and are swimming in negativity. When they begin to understand, see and experience the opposite, the results can be life changing!
The good news is that the way you are can have a great effect on those around you, emotions are contagious so let’s spread the good ones!!
