How to See with Wiser Eyes

Understanding Perception

In our journey to becoming wiser human beings, we need to understand that there is a big difference between the factual information our senses gather and our INTERPRETATION of these events.

We tend to treat our interpretations as FACT! The truth is – THEY ARE NOT!

Our perceptions often trigger emotional response. Or an emotional response can trigger an old perceptual pattern.

Let’s explore how this can happen.

Perception is the process of gathering information through our senses, organizing and making sense of it.

Wikipedia defines perception as follows:

“Perception is not only the passive receipt of these signals, but it’s also shaped by the recipient’s learning, memory, expectation, and attention.

Perception can be split into two processes, 

  1. processing the sensory input, which transforms these low-level information to higher-level information (e.g., extracts shapes for object recognition);
  2. processing which is connected with a person’s concepts and expectations (or knowledge), restorative and selective mechanisms (such as attention) that influence perception.”

Health Tip of the Month

A Calm Heartbeat

Your heartbeat will change to try to match the beat of music around you. And it does this in minutes! This is one of the ways you are wired to respond to sound and music.

heartbeatA relaxed heartbeat ranges between 50 and 70 beats per minute. So create a playlist of music with a beat of around 60 beats per minute.

Stress tends to speed up the heartbeat. Having this playlist playing quietly in the background will help to reduce a faster heartbeat.

The best part is that by slowing your heartbeat, you also slow down your breathing and your brainwave state, creating more calm and relaxation in your body and your mind.

“The mind is like water.

When it’s turbulent, it’s difficult to see.

When it’s calm, everything becomes clear.”
