If you think your body goes through different changes throughout the day spare a thought for the brain. The brain is driving all the functions and is quite often on auto-pilot so you can carry on with other functions. Wow! There is a lot going on in our heads. Simply put, we never stop, we just change gears throughout the day and night. Not surprisingly there is often a rhythm and harmony that is created that we grow comfortable with.
Quite often our lifestyles dictate that we have to follow a rhythm to work or do some meaningful actions. It gives us purpose, an importance and an identity and sometimes our brain just simply loves being busy. We feel in harmony when we know what ourselves or others are doing.
In between these work and doing moments we plan, we think, we work out what will be meaningful and yet strangely enough we have to give in to a force that actually makes sense of all that thinking and doing, Yes, we switch off, we sleep, we dream, we get creative and once we are fully awake again we prioritise all that is meaningful again. The cycle of alert, sleep and dream times are throwing our brainwaves around in a constant tumble dryer of consciousness. Throughout the day we are more alert at different times and the day’s journey can be like going through the gear changes on a bike. From the moment we awaken our brain navigates through lots of conscious and autonomous moments.

Side stepping with Penguins
In reality we are in fluctuating brain states or multi-gears mode all the time, just one gear is more dominant than the others at any given time and each gear can be connected. It shows our brain can fluidly move between all the functions that are happening. The 5 gears (or brain channels) are multi-tasking and cycle through different phases. The changes can be so quick and small changes in directions can lead to an interesting new fluid discovery. Think of it like side stepping in different directions but moving forward, exploring off the known routes and finding new paths to tread. A journey of discovery, like “penguins side stepping but moving forward”. The brain can explore new (mis-directed?) ways instead of the known and pre-determined ways that we know may work but what if we allow to make changes and new directions? Where could it take us? This is how we become creative, where our brainwaves explore a network of routes that we sometimes dare not tread as it deviates from the tasks in hand. Taking a safe route is like the spider that knows what part of the web is not sticky and can find their way and walk through the web or threads that they have spun. They are simple, creative but still have to create new webs and new threaded connections.
How does your brain sound?
Switch on the creative brainwaves. Being creative allows the brain to tune up, progress and learn more by creating new connections with ourselves and others. It improves memory functions too as it brings more content to affirm or retract ideas and purposes. Take time to use your creative brain.
