The third healing intelligence, the thought intelligence, is broken up into 2 parts: the lower thought and the upper thought. Our last article talked about the lower mind intelligence and now we move on to the upper mind.
The upper mind is where we observe our thoughts and the lower mind. It’s where we ponder things, have revelations and gain insight on ourselves.
This is often known as the space of the observer in meditation. When you sit down to meditate or when you observe your thoughts, you may be able to recognize that you are not your thoughts. You are able to watch your thoughts go by. The person observing the thoughts go by is the upper mind healing intelligence.
With this healing intelligence, we can decide which rules still matter to us and which ones from our past we can let go of. This is where you can change your story about who you are!
Here is an exercise to get to the upper metal intelligence. Sit for 5 minutes and observe the thoughts that fill your mind.
When you realise that you are having thoughts enter and leave your mind, recognize that you must be observing them from a higher level of thought.

The third healing intelligence, the thought intelligence, is broken up into 2 parts: the lower thought and the upper thought.
A thought allows you to freeze an event in time so you can play it over and over again. Why would this be important? So you can take a closer look at an event, deconstruct and examine it.
This is done for protection purposes. It allows you to ask yourself if this event is something you need to be concerned about or if this something that you need to protect yourself form.
The lower thought intelligence makes rules for what something is, what it means and what it’s supposed to be. We have rules for what it means to love, be loved, hate, feel rejected, sad. Etc. These rules were established by you through what others told you and your own personal experiences. Most of your rules were form early on in life.
Onces a rule is triggered, it sets of a specific thoughts, emotions, behaviours, etc that correspond to the rule. For example, if in grade 1, Miss Smith told you that you were stupid, you would store that in a file somewhere. Imagine 25 years later and 5 diplomas later, you get stuck on a problem, your brain will say, that’s because you’re stupid.
This is why it’s important for us to examine our reactions and why we have them. Most often, when there’s an upset, it’s because one of our rules have been broken in some way.

The second intelligence is the emotional healing intelligence. The purpose of an emotion is to regulate your life force to cause you to take rapid action, create change and drive you towards a purpose.
The emotional intelligence is tied to the life force (see previous blog on the Bio-energetic healing intelligence) because it directs the flow of the life force. For example, when you experience the emotion of happy, your energy moves upwards in your body. Conversely, when you are feeling sad, your energy will flow downwards and towards your feet.
An emotion is designed to last minutes to hours, at most. It runs through your body so you can make rapid change. Imagine you are treated poorly by sometime and you get mad and angry. This emotional energy will allow you to say “Enough of this! I will not let this happen to me again!”. Then you will take the necessary steps and actions to keep this from happening again to you.
When an emotion lasts longer than a few hours, it is no longer an emotion but a state. You can experience the emotion of anger or you can know someone who’s always angry and therefore in a state of anger. In order to sustain a state, you require specific behaviours, structures or posture of your body, actions and thoughts to create the state over and over again.
Unlike the bio-energetic healing intelligence which is present in all living beings, the emotional intelligence is not. Some animals have this and other’s don’t. A snake may have a preliminary version of this intelligence to be able to react to it’s environment.
People who have difficulty making changes in their life or taking action often don’t have enough emotional energy expression to do that.

The first intelligence is the bio-energetic or life force intelligence. Life force flows through you and allows you to effect your biochemistry in your body.
Life force drives your body’s processes and makes sure that the proper chemical and physiological reactions take place are the correct time to ensure that you stay alive. Ie. heart beats at a certain rate, lungs expand and contract at specific intervals. Life force is important for activity in your cells, connective tissues and for organ function, growth and repair.
Life force is present in all living things and it’s role is to keep your body functioning at baseline. It keeps your safe, secure and alive.
When you are at rest, your life force is slow. Movement is what allows you to change your life force. With increased heart rate, respiration and body temperature i.e. exercise, your body’s biochemistry kicks into high gear.
When your life force isn’t flowing properly, you feel lethargic and if it becomes stagnant, you start to feel ill. The lack of life force does not make you ill directly, your body will lack the ability to eliminate the toxins and move waste in and out, due to the lack of life force flow. When there is disease in the body, there is usually a problem with life force.
When we first start off working together, the treatment sessions are usually focused on getting your life force moving properly again throughout your body.
