Do you have those internal discussion of thinking yes and feeling no?


Head, Heart and Gut Brain discussion

Do you recognise this?

This morning when my alarm clock went off at 6am, I knew I 'should' get up so as not to be late for work, but I didn't 'want' to get up. I tried to tell myself that I needed to get up, then realised my three Brains were competing in all this:

My Gut Brain wanted to go back to sleep (needed the rest). My Heart Brain was trying to kindly tell me that I really ought to get up.

I then said to those two, "Let's see what the Head Brain is thinking," and instantly had a clear image of what I can only describe as the personification of my Head Brain, shutting a front door and leaving a house! My Head Brain didn't seem to care about what the other two needed or wanted, it was doing what it knew needed to be done.
