One of the most empowering messages to come out of neuroscience is that our very thoughts and where we place attention changes the physical structure of the brain (Donald Altman, MA, LPC).  More importantly, the significance of self-directed neuroplasticity (Jeffrey Schwartz) offers hope to those who feel stuck.  It means the power to change old behaviors and rewire the brain is possible through focused attention.  This process is what alters and rewires brain circuitry, which then changes how we will behave in the future.
