La mémoire a un penchant négatif et ni vous ni moi ni pouvons quelque chose, à moins que

Le sculpteur fait la sculpture, autant que la matière fait le sculpteur.

De même que les aliments que nous absorbons construisent notre corps, les expériences que nous vivons modèlent et sculptent notre esprit. La forme que nous obtenons, notre perception générale du monde, cette réalité intérieure que nous exportons vers l’extérieur, se compose d’une somme d’expériences bénéfiques et nuisibles.

Le hic, c’est que l’essentiel de ce « modelage » demeure inconscient.

Et c’est bien là que se niche le problème car notre cerveau enregistre et se souvient préférentiellement, des expériences négatives. Ces dernières agissent comme du “velcro” sur notre cerveau alors qu’à l’inverse, les expériences positives glissent dessus, comme sur du “téflon”.

Au final, même lorsque celles-ci sont plus nombreuses, la pile des souvenirs inconscients négatifs grossit plus rapidement. C’est ce qui nous porte au pessimisme et à la morosité.

Qu’à cela ne tienne, éliminons les expériences négatives, direz-vous, sauf que les expériences négatives nous sont parfois utiles. Le stress peut-être annonciateur d’un danger proche et nous amener à réagir dans un sens ou dans un autre. Ressentir de la colère peut venir souligner une injustice qui demande réparation, et perdre un être cher, nous conduire à ouvrir notre cœur… Mais alors ?

Selon Rick Hanson, neuropsychologue et enseignant à Oxford, Stanford et à Harvard et le Dr Richard Menduis, neurologue,  co-fondateurs de l’Institut Wellspring des Neurosciences et des Sagesse Contemplatives, la solution est d’encourager les expériences positives, de « nous en imprégner afin qu’elles fassent partie intégrante de nous-mêmes”.

Selon ces chercheurs, la solution consiste à :

  • porter une attention consciente à tous les faits positifs qui jalonnent nos journées,

  • savourer l’expérience en la faisant durer,

  • s’en imprégner en absorbant les émotions, les sensations et les pensées qui y sont liées.
