Lose Your Mind: Find Your Destiny –
The Teachings of Dr. Joe Dispenza
At the recent Live The Dream 8 in Austin, Dr. Joe Dispenza spoke for over 2 hours without notes or slides so really note taking was next to impossible. However, I have been a student of Dr. Joe for some time so I am going to summarize a few of his concepts for you. Dr. Joe has written several books.
Among them are:
Dr. Joe Dispenza began his journey into the phenomena of mind over matter and how consciousness creates our reality over 30 years ago in 1986.
In 1986 at the age of 23, Dr. Joe Dispenza was a succesful chiropractor in La Jolla CA. He was also an athlete and was training for a triathlon in Palm Springs scheduled for Apr, 12, 1986.
During the bicycle ride portion of the triathlon, as he was waved around a corner by a volunteer whose back was turned to oncoming traffic. Dr. Joe was struck from behind by an SUV moving at 55 MPH. He landed on his butt and bounced along for some time, exchanging asphalt and skin.
Dr. Joe, as you might imagine, sustained multiple serious injuries including compression fractures to several vertebrae of his thoracic spine. He was told he needed virtual immediate, radical surgery known as Harrington rod surgery where they cut off the outer protrusions of the spinal column and insert multiple steel rods. Dr. Joe Dispenza was told he had 3 or 4 days after which he would possibly never walk again. He was also told that due to the nature and magnitude of the injuries, if he tried to stand he would most likely be paralyzed from the chest down for life.
After several days he checked himself out of the hospital, much to the dismay of every doctor he had consulted, and thus began a self-healing process. Now recall he was a chiropractor so he had an advantageous understanding of his body and how it functioned.
Obviously he had opted to forgo the surgery. Dr. Joe made a deal with himself (and perhaps God) that if he could heal his injuries and learn to walk again without paralysis, pain, or suffering, he would spend a majority of his life studying the phenomena of mind over matter and how consciousness creates reality. At 10 weeks he walked back into his life, he returned to his practice and has been a proponent of self-healing ever since.
Do you have a Vision
Dr. Joe Dispenza asks us , “Do you believe that your thoughts have an impact on your life? Do you have a clear vision of your future self?” Do you know that the human brain has between 60,000 and 70,000 thoughts every single day? It is estimated between 90% and 95% of those thoughts today are the same thoughts that you had yesterday.
- Your thoughts determine your choices
- Your choices determine your behaviors
- Your behavior drives your experience
- Your experience determines your emotions
- Your emotions drive your thoughts
Your thoughts plus your actions plus your feelings equal your personality or your personal reality.
We often hear things like “Be, Do, Have. The idea being that we must become the thing we want first, then take the actions that person would take before we can have the thing that we want to have. For many of us that is a hard concept. Take money for example.
We might be told that we need to learn to manage money before we will have any. That seems strange. How can we learn to manage that which we don’t have. So our ego argues back, “I’ll learn to manage money when I have some to manage”. Unfortunately, that’s not the way it works and for you to become successful in your business, you MUST understand and embrace a fundamentally different concept.
Perhaps your goal is to be a millionaire. How are you supposed to be a millionaire and act like a millionaire with no money in your checking account and a stack of bills on the kitchen table?
You might say I don’t need to change my mind, it’s my checking account that has a problem. Sadly, your checking account is a reflection of all your beliefs and prior actions. It is a result, not a cause, and until your change your mind, your will not change the result.
We used to be taught that our brain is hardwired. It develops and by some age, it is fixed and cannot be changed. We now know unequivocally that is not true. The science of neuroplasticity teaches us that our brain is continuously evolving. Your brain will not be the same at the end of this talk as it was at the beginning. Every time a new piece of information is presented, your brain makes new neural connections and sometimes breaks old ones.
Neurons that fire together wire together and memories are created by networks of neural connections that have fired repeatedly.
When you get out of bed in the morning, you wake up at the same time, get out of the same side of the bed, brush your teeth with the same hand, drink your coffee out of the same mug, drive the same car on the same road to the same destination and do the same work for the same people…Then you come home and watch the same television program while drinking the same beer…you are living in the past.
You are running a program that is hardwired into the neural connections of your brain. In fact, that program has been executed so many times that your body, acting as the subconscious mind has memorized it. Your body reacts to external stimuli and goes through the motions with little or no involvement of your brain.
It is estimated that by the age of 35, most of us are running completely on autopilot. Almost everything we do has been “hardwired” into the neural network of our bran and we think, act and feel every day just like we did the day before, yet we secretly hope something will change and somehow by magic out future life will be different.
Again, it is estimated out brain has between 60,000 and 70,000 thoughts every day. Unfortunately 90% – 95% of those thoughts are the same ones we had yesterday. Our brain is running a program on autopilot.
Now if you want a different future you have to change the program, which means we must change the way our brain is wired, i.e. we must lose our mind and create a new one.
You must wake up with a vision of your future self. We all have basically understood that intellectually but how do we embrace it in reality.
Thoughts become things
Every thought produces a biochemical reaction in the brain. The brain releases chemical signals that are transmitted to the body where they act as messengers of that thought. The chemicals that are produced by the brain allow your body to feel exactly the way you were just thinking. So every thought produces a chemical that is matched by a feeling in your body. So for example when you are thinking happy, positive thoughts, you brain manufactures happy, positive chemicals (dopamine) that cause your body to feel happy.
Similarly, if you think hateful, angry or self-deprecating thoughts, your brain also produces chemicals (called neuropeptides) that the body responds to in a comparable way and you feel hateful, angry or unworthy.
Do you know your thoughts even affect your heart rhythm. When we have negative emotions (such as anger and fear) our heart rhythms become erratic and disorganized. In contrast, positive emotions (love, joy, for instance) produce highly ordered coherent patterns that are referred to as heart coherence.
Now what happens is when your body “feels” a certain way (happy , sad or whatever), It signals the brain to produce more of those corresponding chemicals and so we are in a continuous positive feedback loop. Think happy thoughts, generate happy chemicals, make happy feelings, signal the brain to make more happy chemicals and so on. Are you with me?
Thinking creates feelings and feelings create thinking in a continuous cycle.
So the more we think the same thoughts which then produce the same chemicals which cause the body to have the same feelings, the more we physically become modified by our thoughts. In this way, depending on what we are thinking and feeling, we create our state of being. We create our physical reality.
How do we reinvent ourselves
Simple! Think different thoughts. Thoughts are the language of the brain and feelings are the language of the body. When you have a thought, your brain produces a chemical stew that enters the body and causes feelings. Mental rehearsal stimulates the brain to grow new neural circuits which change the way the brain and mind work. Your mind is your brain in action. In order to produce a different future we must quit living in the past and firing the same old circuits and reinforcing the same old neural connections day in and day out.
Spending time every day thinking about, imagining and rehearsing how we will feel when our desired future is achieved brings it ever closer to us. Remember the brain and body work in concert to produce a chemical cocktail that reinforces our thoughts and feelings and when we think about the future and “pretend” it is already here, we begin to make new neural connections. We send chemical messengers to our body that make us feel like we have already achieved the desired result. These feelings then reinforce that thought which produce new neural connections in our brain and soon we are living in and seeing and believing our future reality before it has manifested into our present physical existence.
The summary of this is if we want to change some aspect of our reality, we have to think, feel and act in new ways; we have to “be” different in terms of our responses to experiences. We have to “become” someone else. We have to create a new state of mind. We need to observe the new outcome with that “new “ mind
So the question is, can you believe in a future that you can’t see yet with your physical senses but you have thought about it enough that your brain is literally changed to look like the event has already occurred? If you can, you have changed your brain from living in the past to living in the future.
The Quantum Field
So now let me take you really deep. In quantum physics there is a concept called “The Observer Effect”. Simply stated, the observer affects the thing being observed. For those who saw the movie “What the bleap do we know” we saw the scene where the woman turned her back on the basketball court and the basketball was simultaneously everywhere and nowhere but when she turned and looked, it snapped into position. Because she saw it, it was there. Not the other way around. The quantum field responds to what we expect from it. Now for many of you that may be a mind blower, but trust me. It is our expectations and beliefs that determine our future reality.
In our present view of the universe, all possibilities exist simultaneously in the quantum stew. The one that becomes probable and manifests into your physical reality is the one you see and feel and believe. You must believe it in order to see it and so you must wire your brain to believe your desired futures is already a present reality. Then, and only then, can it manifest into your physical universe.
Dr. Joe states it is a useful model to think of thoughts as the electrical charge in the quantum field and feelings as the magnetic charge in the field. The thoughts we think send an electrical signal out into the field. The feelings we generate magnetically draw events back to us. Together how we think and how we feel produces a state of being which generate an electromagnetic signature that influences every atom in our world. So ask yourself what am I broadcasting either consciously or unconsciously on a daily basis?
Hold a clear intention of what you want, but leave the “how” details to the unpredictable quantum field. Let it orchestrate an event in your life in a way that is just right for you. If you are going to expect anything, expect the unexpected. Surrender, trust and let go of how a desired event will unfold.
So, by rehearsing the thing we want to be, we condition our brain to produce the chemical cocktail that makes us feel like we have what we want and soon, we begin to see ourselves as that thing. That enables us to act the way that person would act so the result we want can manifest into our physical reality from the stew of infinite possibilities. Thus Be, Do Have!
