The idea that we use only 10% of our brains let’s call it a myth.

Our brain is constantly active. It would make even more sense to say that we use 100% of our brain all the time, but even this is kind of confusing. Both 10% or 100% estimates are not even wrong.

Brain function depends on qualitatively different patterns of activity, rather than quantities of activity. These patterns change depending on what you are doing, so some neurons or groups of neurons become active when others become inactive.

Activating all neurons at the same time would be like pushing a brake and the accelerator of a car at the same time – don’t do that, not a very good idea!

Well, what does it mean now? If too many neurons become active simultaneously it can actually be dangerous. Hyperactivity of groups of neurons is associated with epilepsy and other neurological disorders.

When people say “you are only using a fraction of your brain” they are giving a pseudoscientific veneer to a piece of age-old folk knowledge: the perfectly reasonable idea that we are not realizing our full potential as people.

But improving our thoughts and behavior is not a matter of amplifying neural activity. Instead, it is about creating new and beneficial behavioral patterns, which correlate with altered neural activity patterns.

So if you want to explore what else you are capable of, just look around at people who have changed their habits.

What happens when people explore what they are capable of? They push themselves to become better at whatever it is they are interested in: science, art, music, business, and the most difficult skill of all, becoming a more compassionate human being.

The question is left, can we use or increase our brain up to 100% capacity?

The only way you can dramatically increase your brain’s processing abilities to the max. is to to use more of it on your daily basis.


Let’s say, for example, get off your digital devices or use them less and start:

  • trust your own instincts on the road, in the wild or where ever you go
    (no navigation system, use your eyes more to remember directions)
  • do mental arithmetic
  • let your fingers do more complex work
  • have more face-to-face communication with people
  • write handwritten notes
  • take a good walk outside in the park, botanical gardens or any nature kind of environment
    [Tweet “Leonardo da Vinci once said, use all our senses, especially our sense of sight.”]

Constantly strategise and think through your problems, by seeing ahead, seeing beyond, seeing from above, seeing from behind, seeing sideways, seeing beneath, seeing within and seeing through.

When looking at a problem or challenge or issue at hand, explore beyond the positives and the negatives, like what’s interesting here.

Break your patterned routines, so as to be able to see something different or think something different or do something different; more precisely, to see the world afresh and anew.

Out of our own experience, our brain capabilities are only limited by “You”
let’s say there is something “You” want to do and you tell yourself (“You” will never be able to do such a thing) then your mind will most likely be less interested to do such a thing (less active) and you will feel like things are hard to do, but what if you start it different, what if you say (“You” can do that) even if you never tried it. Your brain will be more active in the way you want it. Your brain will feel more challenged and active (Happy).

Short way to say it, by taking an interest in what you do or rather, doing something that interests you. Only when the mind is intrigued can you fully employ it without distractions.

Break your patterned routines, so as to be able to see something different or think something different or do something different; more precisely, to see the world afresh and anew.

Imagine, fantasize, and play diffrent scenarios in your head: best-case, realistic-case, and worst-case. In the corprate/business world, this is scenario projection often practiced by high – performance professionals!

Becoming involved in the arts, movement, like Tai Chi, Qi Gong, etc. develops the “right brain” faculties, and it is more satisfying to have a more fully developed mind.

If you raise your nature gifted routinary(average)consciousness level to higher consciousness, by conscious efforts, done at your deliberate will, in presence of this higher consciousness,many brain areas open up, get activated and show newer functional modalities like to think at will & to be thoughtless at will,for seeing,visionary capacity, sanity, wisdom, holistic seeing, telepathic tendencies, clairvoyance, extra sensory perception etc. Such person shows positive higher emotions.
This is increased capacity of the brain.
