Book Week Day 4: Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself – How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One by Dr Joe Dispenza
It’s been great to see our news feeds filled with kids heading off to school in their book week costumes. So many happy smiles on faces and an opportunity to encourage creativity.
The book I’m sharing with you today was written by one of our favourite teachers – Dr Joe Dispenza. We have followed Dr Joe’s work for around 3 years and were fortunate to spend a week in Cabo Mexico last October learning from him.
Our days were spent in guided meditation as well as learning the latest in neuroscience and quantum physics. We also had the opportunity to participate in scientific testing where we were hooked up to an EEG machine to map our brains and also had our heart coherence measured for 24 hours. To cap it all off, the retreat was held in a stunning 5 star all inclusive resort – Dr Joe’s model for these retreats is “living like you have all of your needs met”.
Dr Joe first caught the public’s eye as one of the scientists featured in the award-winning film “What the BLEEP Do We Know!?” Since that movie’s release in 2004, his work has expanded, deepened, and spiraled in several key directions—all of which reflect his passion for exploring how people can use the latest findings from the fields of neuroscience and quantum physics to not only heal illness but also to enjoy a more fulfilled and happy life. Dr. Joe is driven by the conviction that each one of us has the potential for greatness and unlimited abilities.
As an author, Dr. Joe has written Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind, followed by Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One, both of which detail the neuroscience of change and epigenetics. His latest book, You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter (2014), which is an Amazon Bestseller and hit the NY Times Bestseller List within a week of its release, builds on his previous work.
Whats it about? (from the publisher)
You are not doomed by your genes and hardwired to be a certain way for the rest of your life. A new science is emerging that empowers all human beings to create the reality they choose.
In Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, renowned author, speaker, researcher, and chiropractor Dr. Joe Dispenza combines the fields of quantum physics, neuroscience, brain chemistry, biology, and genetics to show you what is truly possible.
Not only will you be given the necessary knowledge to change any aspect of yourself, you will be taught the step-by-step tools to apply what you learn in order to make measurable changes in any area of your life. Dr. Joe demystifies ancient understandings and bridges the gap between science and spirituality. Through his powerful workshops and lectures, thousands of people in 25 different countries have used these principles to change from the inside out. Once you break the habit of being yourself and truly change your mind, your life will never be the same!
What I learnt
– That I’m not limited by my genetics – concepts of epigenetics
– That I can literally re-wire my brain – concepts of neuroplasticity
– Strategies to easily let go of limiting beliefs
– Strategies to choose and create what feelings and emotions I want to experience in my life
– Meditations to become more present and create space
– Meditations to heal the body
– Meditations to create and manifest an awesome life
We both love Dr Joe’s books, will most certainly attend another workshop in the future and just regard Dr Joe as such an inspiring, humble teacher with a lot of love to give.
I would encourage anyone to attend at least his progressive workshop (he comes to Australia once per year).
Along with the book link, I’ve posted a 10 minute YouTube link which gives a great insight as to some of what you’d expect to learn from Dr Joe.
