It's a super-powerful technique you can use to look critically at what your were thinking about during times that were particularly good or bad, successful or not, happy or sad. Thoughts become things, and learning to go back and retrospectively dissecting our own thinking during such times is a superpower for learning how to replicate the good and avoid the bad outcomes next time we encounter a similar circumstance.Scripture: Isaiah 44:14-20, Isaiah 45:20Music by Tommy Walker(Music shared on The Dr. Lee Warren Podcast is authorized under BMI license #61063253 and ASCAP license #400010513 ) This is a public episode.

    Are We Managing Our Lives, or Really Changing Them?Our last good decision for September is to commit to real change, instead of just managing things over and over!I see people in my office every week who are hurting, and often times I can offer them a fix for their problem. But some folks just want to manage their pain, take a pill, or do something that's quicker and less scary than having surgery.This episode was inspired by Tommy Walker's song Water Into Wine, which was written out of the story in John 2:1-5 .In the story, Jesus changed water into wine. This wasn't just a little change of the water. He didn't add some powder to it and stir it up. He actually transformed it into the best wine the people had ever tasted.Take a few minutes and look into this question with me: are you tired of just trying to manage the issues and problems you're dealing with in your life, or do you have the courage to actually change them for good? Scriptures mentioned: John 2:1-5 , Isaiah 51:1-2, Isaiah 61:1-3(Music shared on The Dr. Lee Warren Podcast is authorized under BMI license #61063253 and ASCAP license #400010513 )Links: Water Into Wine by Tommy Walker videoThe Book of John in Song by Tommy WalkerMy appearance at First Presbyterian Church Bonita Springs Florida This is a public episode.

    Self-Brain Surgery Saturday #3: Sever Sick Synapses

    Play Episode Listen Later Sep 24, 2022 27:54


    Synapses are where the business of the nervous system happens.Lately, we've been talking about the basics of self-brain surgery to learn how to think about our thinking, and the ideas behind my new book, Hope is the First Dose.But this isn't just some “self-help” or motivational speaker-type thing. Because the vast majority of your life, the decisions you make, the relationships you have, the things you accomplish or strive for come out of how you think: your attitudes, your thought patterns. Everything about how you handle stress, unexpected challenges, and the hard parts of life is determined by your thinking.But the problem is, most of us spend our lives reacting to our thinking, because we never think about our thinking.And the reality is, our baseline thoughts are not very reliable most of the time. Why? That answer is rooted in the science of how our nervous systems are wired. The bad news is that your nervous system has a set of responses to challenges, threats, and stresses, and that set of responses isn't very specific. In other words, you basically feel the same things in your body when a tiger is actually chasing you as you do when you hear a sound in the next room and wonder if someone's breaking into your house- even if it's just the ice maker. Those triggered responses aren't very helpful when they make us reflexively freak out.But the good news is, your brain can be trained to separate the response from the stimulus. But it requires brain surgery.That's why I'm always saying, “You can't change your life until you change your mind.”In other words, if you keep thinking the same thoughts- if you never change how you look at things or the mental framework from which you approach the world- then you're going to keep experiencing the same patterns and outcomes.And the part of the nervous system that connects two nerves, or nerves and muscles or other organs, is called a synapse. In your brain, there are about 100 trillion of them. Trillion with a T. And when those synapses don't work right, you don't work right.Today, we're going to look at two diseases that affect the synapses between your nerves and your muscles. And I want to show you a little of how the nervous system works, so we can see how important it is to make sure we have healthy synapses.If you want to become healthier, feel better, and be happier, you've got to think about your thinking. But sometimes life creates unhealthy connections- sick synapses- that trigger thought patterns and behaviors in us we're not even aware of.You can't change your life until you change your mind. And severing sick synapses- breaking down those bad connections life has created and making better ones- is a key to getting that done.Remember Proverbs 17:27-28 in The Passion Translation (TPT):27 Can you bridle your tongue when your heart is under pressure?That's how you show that you are wise.An understanding heart keeps you cool, calm, and collected,no matter what you're facing.That's one of the secrets to becoming infinitely happier, friend.Learning to stay cool, calm, and collected no matter what we're facing. That's useful during any problem you're facing, but it's also useful in everyday life. And it doesn't happen by accident. It happens by severing sick synapses. My friend, we're going to learn how, and we're going to start today. This is a public episode.

    Self-Brain Surgery Tip #7: (It's Tata's birthday! Email him if you'd like to say hello! lee@drleewarren.com ) When you make a mistake, admit it to yourself and correct it going forward. Excuses build the false idea in your brain that it's not really your fault, and you'll be more likely to do it again. Own it, recalibrate, move forward and you'll be happier! It's No-Slip November friend! In the Bible, we read of how the Israelites turned an 11-day trip into a 40-year-long journey through the desert. And many of us are tired of covering the same ground over and over in our lives instead of finally breaking through to where God wants us to go.  So it's time to use that self-brain surgery tip, stop making excuses, and get after it!

    When You Can't Hear Truth in Your Own Brain, You Need Better Words (REPLAY of Season 5, Episode 89 for Wild Card Wednesday) “Take to heart all the words by which I am warning you today, that you may command them to your children, that they may be careful to do all the words of this law. For it is no empty word for you, but your very life, and by this word you shall live long in the land that you are going over the Jordan to possess.” (Deuteronomy 32:46–47) In this episode, we're going to look at how God's words- all of them- have the ability to give meaning and purpose to our lives. How we have need of them for all the things we'll face in our lives. How we can rely on them when the massive thing happens. And how sometimes God says, “You can't have that.” So what do we do when it feels empty and void? We need some words in there, and God always has them. But we have to start today.  Scripture: Isaiah 55:11 Music by Tommy Walker Sign up for my Substack letter here.

    30 Good Decisions: Hobson's Choices

    Play Episode Listen Later Sep 10, 2022 33:22


    It's Throwback Thursday!In September, we're making 30 good decisions. One of them is to learn to settle Hobson's Choices.Life is a Series of Hobson's ChoicesHobson's choiceA Hobson's choice is a free choice in which only one thing is offered. Because a person may refuse to accept what is offered, the two options are taking it or taking nothing. In other words, one may "take it or leave it". WikipediaThere are some things you need to settle if you're going to be happy. What are those for you? Write them down. Start praying for peace around them. Start clarifying the true things in your life, and disavow yourself from the notion that you need to have a pain-free life in order to be happy. The degree to which you couple emotion and circumstance in your life is inversely proportional to your ability to be happy.And what kills us, is the unwillingness to accept the quantum duality that life is hard and we can be happy anyway. We focus on the but and the and and the woe and the oh no and we forget the tho and yet.Scriptures MentionedJohn 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”John 10:10  The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.Mark 9:28-29 After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, “Why couldn't we drive it out?” 29 He replied, “This kind can come out only by prayer.Luke 18:1 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.Matthew 5:30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.Hebrews 12:1-4Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. 4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted    and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
