At the neuronal level, when your imagination is reframing, Hebb’s Law of neuroscience is being disturbed—which is a good thing. The law says: neurons that fire together, wire together. This means that if you always use the same tricks to solve problems, or always assess situations through the same worn-out, customary frames, those connections in your brain become rigid. In other words, if you continue to react to difficult situations with fear, then difficult situations will always wire with fear-based emotions in your brain. Imaginative reframing disturbs and helps unsync this.
