Mindfulness: A Gateway to Consciousness
Are You Moving Through Life on Auto-Pilot?
Is mindfulness a buzzword or breakthrough? Mindfulness describes a way of being in the world. The practice of mindfulness is sweeping western civilization and evolving humanity. What an exciting time to be on the planet! We are living in a time where science and consciousness is accelerating the evolution of humans.
Today’s study of Quantum physics and Neuroscience is breaking through paradigms of traditional science. The limited beliefs of mainstream science has restricted the capacity to expand human consciousness. The human mind is rapidly evolving and revealing a unified new paradigm in the scientific and spiritual communities. Mindfulness is the practical application of this evolution.

Mindfulness and Neuroscience
How do we get stuck in our habitual patterns?
“Neurons that fire together, wire together.” Neuroscience experts estimate we think 50,000-80,000 thoughts / day, of which 90% are the same! The mind and body are in constant communication. This cycle repeats continuously and hardwires neuron connections.
How have we become disconnected from ourselves?
We currently have a crisis in being present and our ability to focus. Experts have estimated that the average attention span is 6-10 seconds! The information age has overloaded the human brain with data resulting in feeling disconnected with our bodies, emotions, and other people.
Ninety six percent of our mental activity is subconscious habit. Subconscious programming originates from our social environment (parents, teachers, and the media). Mindfulness shines a light on your subconscious programing.
How does mindfulness rewire our brain?
Mindfulness enables us to create new neuro-pathways in our brain. Through mindfulness practices we build awareness of our thought/emotional patterns. From this level of self-awareness we consciously create new response patterns that rewire the brain.
This expanded awareness and consciousness opens the door to the quantum field, an intelligence of the greater mind. The same mind that beats your heart, keeps you breathing, digests your food, and produces 10 million cells per second.
There are numerous effective mindfulness practices. Different practices work better for some people than others. Mindfulness is not about intellectual learning, it’s about the experience. Learning and embodying mindfulness is the art of developing your consciousness muscles. This is one of the keys to what we develop at our Infinite Alignment retreats. .
At Infinite Alignment we use mindfulness practices in the context of our unique ROSE process for transformation. Are you ready to tap into this infinite wisdom and intelligence?
