An excerpt from my book It All Starts in the Mind! By:

~Veronica Coney



It is said that our brain is like a computer, an automatic switching station, that electrical impulse transmits information from one part of the brain to another part of the body in a form of thought rather fast. All this takes place in the brain.


The Brain: The CNS (Central Nervous System) Consists of the Brain & Spinal Cord

The Functions of the Brain are Control Centers for:

  • Thoughts
  • Emotions
  • Wisdom
  • Memories
  • And all activities of behaviors
  • All Forms of Physical Movement

The Brain also consists of 4 major regions

  1. Cerebrum
  2. Diencephalon
  3. Brain Stem
  4. Cerebellum

These regions play a crucial role in our ability to maintain homeostasis (to keep our bodies well balanced and in a healthy state).  

The Cerebrum: The largest and uppermost part of the brain.

The Cerebrum is the place of intelligence in which provides us with the ability to read, write, speak, make calculations, remember the past, plan for the future, and imagine things that have never existed before.


The Diencephalon:

 The Diencephalon: In Short, The Diencephalon consists of the Hypothalamus and the Thalamus which relays sensory information to other parts of the brain, that are responsible for producing different emotions, pleasant or unpleasant emotions. Also, it is the place that works with the endocrine system that secretes hormones that are vital to maintaining homeostasis (to keep our bodies well balanced and in a healthy state) in the body.

The Brain Stem:

The Brain Stem consists of 3 parts, the Midbrain, Pons, and Medulla Oblongata which is an extension of the spinal cord. In short, Grey matter and white matter are present in all three parts and is where the sensory impulses travel to and from the brain and spinal cord.

Controlling functions like heartbeat, respiration, blood pressure, and other vital organs to maintain homeostasis. (to keep our bodies well balanced and in a healthy state.


As I reflect on a time long ago in my early 20"s  I'm 43 now on the power of the intangible forces of good or bad.

I recall writing in my Journal, Im so angry I feel like my head is about to bust, 

Lord and behold years later that thought manifested in a way that almost destroyed the physical  me, I had been entertaining the thought something bad happening to me in those years, all that was around me was destruction and Maham at the time, The thought manifested July 24th, 2007 when I had gotten so angry that my head finally bust to the point that I had a bleed on my brain,. Thank goodness I also entertained thoughts and prayers of restoration in those journals. I am here in the flesh and is a testament that thoughts become words and words mixed with emotion can create an intangible force, That can indeed manifest in the seen world.
