My weekend with Dr Joe Dispenza (Part 1)
I have had the privilege to see the awesome Dr Joe Dispenza in action four times now! Dr Joe is a neuroscientist and he discusses in user friendly language the science behind how we can rewire the brain and recondition our bodies to make lasting changes.
Dr Joe is an expert in allowing us to understand how we can manifest whatever we want (or don’t want, as is commonly the case) by thought alone.
He takes into account the latest research in biology, chemistry, epigenetic and quantum physics amongst other areas. It is explained how we can get past our conscious and analytical mind to facilitate change to create whatever we want. during his workshops, Dr Joe provides various examples of how people who have attended his events around the globe who have cured themselves of illnesses and diseases such as cancers, physical and neurological conditions to name but a few. Dr Joe also talks about the ongoing research he is conducting on his students and much of his background study is researching those who have made spontaneous remissions.
Dr Joe is of the view we can literally be who we want to be. But to enable ourselves to do this, we need to shed our old selves. So in order to ‘break the habit of being yourself’, you need to signal new genes to create coherence. Let me expand what I mean by this. Most of us whether we realise is or not are living by the hormones of stress. We are literally in survival mode much of the time. This was extremely adaptive behaviour for our ancestors, the cavemen who had to constantly fight danger or be on high alert to survive. There was the constant need to hunt for food or being ready to fight a sabre tooth tiger.
So at an evolutional level, we are designed, predisposed and evolved to deal with stressful (dangerous and life threatening) situations. In such cases our bodies are very powerful fight or flight producing machines. So in such an eventuality all our stress hormones go into overdrive. Adrenaline and cortisol flush through the body’s system, blood rushes to the extremities to enable us to fight and use all our energy or to run as fast as we can. This is all highly complex stuff and was adaptive back then, in order to prepare us in times of danger. In the present day it is very rare that we are faced with these situations as our predecessors were.
In todays society however we produce those same stress hormones whenever we are in a state of stress, or even when we are just thinking about it. An example would be if you are mulling over and over what to say to a work colleague after a dispute the day previously. Or after having a big argument with your partner. You still experience the same emotions and feelings as if you are still actually in that situation right there.
Continued production of stress hormones over a prolonged period of time is highly maladaptive behaviour. Don’t get me wrong, a certain level of stress is needed in certain situations. This is vital and it enables us to function to our optimum ability. However when we are constantly living by the hormones of stress, we are headed for disease, illness or other related problems. We we don’t realise is that as we think the same thoughts this leads to the same choices to the same behaviours to the same experiences which leads to the same emotions which then returns us to the same thoughts. We are effectively conditioning the body to become the mind. This is great for certain automatic programmes and habits that we might create in order to serve us well for example driving, or walking or talking.
However its not so effective when we condition our body by negative thoughts that then lead to the same negative feelings. We then become conditioned to negative emotions such as those of worry, fear, guilt, anxiety, resentment and judgment. Old emotions are a record of the past so we are literally living in the past. How can we then create a new future while we are living in the past! We may say the past defines who we but we are using situation right now to reaffirm our addictions to past emotions “Oh I’ve not got enough likes on Facebook today”, “nobody loves me”, “its hard to change”, you get the picture. These are all just old beliefs, non of which are true, but it is easier to reinforce as this is the familiar, as its who we are.
In essence our personality then becomes our personal reality.
The good news is we can change and I see transformational changes in the work that I do on a regular basis. If it was easy everyone would be doing it right? Firstly its important to become more conscious of the same thoughts and feelings. Much of this stuff is automatic, a subconscious programme if you will. So become more aware of those negative thoughts. Recognise moment to moment how you are feeling, rather than letting those thoughts pass you by on a subconscious level (most of the time we are that conditioned we don’t even realise we are doing the thinking).
The more we can live by the feelings of gratitude and joy the more positives we will notice in our lives. Be in the now. Live moment to moment and be present. As soon as we are experiencing worry and anxiety, we are right back in the past and the moment we experience fear we are constructing a false future that isn’t even true yet.
