This is a book I could not put down. I am now up to doing the Induction Step of the Meditation, and I quickly rushed to Dr. Joe's website to purchase the audio materials for the meditation. The book has been divided into 3 parts, I have written my notes on each chapter as follows:
PART I - THE SCIENCE OF YOU
Chapter 1: The Quantum You:
-You and the world are made up of energy and matter.
-If you look at the body, including the brain, at the cellular level you have: Tissues > Cells > Molecules > Atoms > Subatomic Particles > Energy.
-Your thoughts have an effect on the Quantum Field.
-We are in control of our past, present, and future.
-When we focus on a thought. Single--mindedly, we make it more real than anything else. We are experiencing the thought beyond the physical realm.
-We can create our future.
Chapter 2: Overcoming Your Environment:
-The environment causes us to think. Familiar places, things, people and circumstances fire a set of circuits which cause the brain to think in certain ways (an external stimulus is causing us to think).
-If the environment causes us to think, firing the same circuits over and over, the circuits become hardwired and part of our being.
-"Nerve cells that fire together wire together" - Hebbs Law
-To change then is to think greater than the environment and any external stimulus.
-Mental Rehearsal plays a major role in building new neuron networks in the brain.
Chapter 3: Overcoming Your Body
-Every time you have a thought you make a chemical.
-If you think the way you feel, and feel the way you think, over and over, you create a state of being.
-Positive thoughts alone will not work to change this.
-The environment pushes genes in our bodies, which cause stress, disease, or happiness and joy.
-If you ever forget to remember a phone number, you pick up the phone and you just put your fingers on the buttons, and suddenly your body knows better then your brain.
-To change is to pull the mind out of the body and put it back in the brain.
-To change is to think greater than how you feel.
-Mental Rehearsal also contributes to changing the body physically and mentally.
Chapter 4: Overcoming Time
-We happen to live in the emotions we have memorized from the past.
-We need to live in the present moment and focus on new emotions.
-When we watch a movie, read a book, go on a long drive, etc - we lose track of time.
-To change is to change the emotions we memorize, we need to move from a state of anger or jealousy to a state of thankfulness and gratitude.
Chapter 5: Survival Vs Creation
-Living in a state of survival creates stress, disease, and it activates the fight or flight nervous system.
-To change is to be selfless, not selfish. Forget about: Time, Your Body, Your Environment.
-True Creation is forgetting the "Big 3".
1. Metacognition: Become self-aware, an observer.
2. Create a new mind to think about new ways of being... asking questions like: What would it be like to... ?, What is a better way to be... ?, What if I was this person, living in this reality?, Who in history do I admire, what traits do they have I can resemble?
3. Make thought more real than anything else is creation.
PART II - YOUR BRAIN AND MEDITATION
Chapter 6: Three Brains: Thinking To Doing To Being
-We go from: Thinking (Neocortex) > Doing (Limbic Brain) > Being (Cerebellum)
Emotions (in the limbic or mid brain) are the end products of experience.
-If you wake up from meditation differently before you sat down before, you have changed. You feel different.
-However, you must think and feel in harmony, you can not think one way and feel another way.
-When you think and feel different, and once you do something and taking action consistently, you will eventually be that new person. You will be in a new state of being, which is wisdom.
-A new state of being creates a new personality... A new personality produces a new personal reality.
Chapter 7: The Gap
-We only get our identity from other things, people and circumstances.
Our cars, phones, jobs, etc make us feel good.
-When we die, none of this exists... so where does true happiness come from?
-Happiness must come from within, not from the outside world.
-What we appear on the outside is different from what we really are.
-We need to close the gap and start being happy inside - meditation will help with this.
Chapter 8: Meditation, Demystifying The Mystical And Waves Of Your Future
-Remind yourself who you no longer want to "be" until this becomes so familiar that you know your old self - thoughts, behaviours and emotions connected to the old you that you want to change - to the extent that you unfire and unwire the old mind away and no longer signal the same genes in the same ways.
-Then repeatedly contemplate who you want to "be".
-This will fire and wire new levels of mind. Eventually this will become second nature, and that is change.
PART III - STEPPING TOWARD YOUR NEW DESTINY
This particular part goes into Chapter 9: The Meditative Process: Introduction and Preparation - which explains all the tools you need to prepare you for the meditation. The chapters that follow after, are all the steps clearly explained for your meditation journey.
Part III is the "how to do it" part of the book - with fantastic ways and variations to do the meditation. If I was asked today what would be the only book I could recommend for creating change in our lives and breaking old habits and routines, I would answer "Breaking The Habit Of Being Yourself - By Dr. Joe Dispenza".
Update 13/10/2012: To compliment this book in terms of also breaking habit's, I highly recommend the book "The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business" which can be purchased here on Amazon!
Update 17/07/2014: I'm still using the techniques in this book and is still very effective. Check out Dr Joe's new book "You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter" As that book focuses on changing illness/beliefs while this is more habit based changes, per just my opinion.
Dr. Joe on Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, combines the science with the HOW TO apply the new discoveries that surround neuroplasticity on our daily lives. Is your life already good? Make it even better! Do you think it could be better? whether your answer is yes or not, this is a must read. I highly recommend this book.
Why is it important to me that functional brain scans are showing that people are activating and expanding clusters of neurons in a specific area of the brain just by rehearsing a thought? Times are changing and to use neuroplasticity with all the amazing discoveries as a topic for your next dinner conversation is fun, but this book will teach you that true empowerment comes when we start to look deeply at our beliefs. It will teach you how to "install" the neural hardware needed to physiologically prepare you for new amazing events by creating the "real estate" of neurons ready to take advantage of opportunities that may have been invisible in the past. Dr Joe takes you on a journey on how to go from thinking to doing to being using our 3 brains, stepping toward your New Destiny in a state of creation and not in a state of survival or by default.
Like any other skill, "..if you keep installing, reinforcing, and refining your neurological hardware, the end result of that repetition is a neural network - in effect, a new software program. Just like a computer software this program (for example, a behavior, an attitude, or an emotional state) now runs automatically.." Dr. Joe says.
And my favorite question you can answer after reading the book:
"..Can you believe in a future you cannot yet see or experience with your senses but have thought about enough times in your mind that your brain is actually changed to look like the experience has already happened ahead of the physical event in your external environment? If so, then your brain is no longer a record of the past but has become a map to the future.."
Dr. Joe is one of the best communicators in the world of this area of science as well as neuroscience, neurology, brain function, chemistry, cellular biology, memory formation, and aging and longevity. This book follows his first, Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind which laid down the science for this one.
The first book was a bit heady and as a layperson with an avid interest in personal development and a growing interest in science, I must admit it was a bit difficult for me to read. I think it may have been intended for those who are practitioners with a science background as well as those in holistic and heart-centered therapies who by now it seems, should really know this stuff if they are working with people. I found myself recommending the first one to a whole host of professionals in the helping and healing professions - nurses, psychologists, physiotherapists, body workers, yoga teachers, EFT practitioners, and those who lead courses in personal development and spirituality.
This new book is a real breakthrough in terms of practical application. Dr. Joe's genius is in many areas, but certainly he must now be seen as one of the world's top voices in how to apply the new science to your life. It is a delightful tour of what makes us work and more importantly, how you can make lasting change in your life. I have done several personal development workshops and many claim to bring about lasting change, but few really deliver on that promise. But this book and I am sure Dr. Joe's trainings bring this important work to the common individual and it is designed to facilitate change.
Mainstream science is being forced to catch up to the cutting edge scientists who have labored long and hard without the benefit of grant money because the subatomic world is affecting everything from computers to smart phones to warfare. I look forward to the day my college physics teacher has to recant due to the fact he once said to me after discussing the classic work, The Tao of Physics: An Exploration of the Parallels between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism that "You really don't think this affect us in our day to day lives do you?" That day, thanks to works like this one, is coming sooner than most people would think!
I will still recommend this for the professionals to read and I think they will read it with glee and gain many insights. But this one I like to think is for people like myself - those who want to grow and change and develop to be their best from the inside out!
I noticed that Dr. Joe is also in a number of other films that are out, but one that sounds very exciting is the forthcoming film "People vs. the State of Illusion," which I am sure many of his fans will want to catch.
It is a matter of indifference to me whether chiropractic is an efficacious medical intervention or not. My problem, having read the book as a Kindle purchase, is the summary dismissal of EVERYTHING Dispenza asserts because some readers suggest these assertions are in opposition to legitimate (my word) scientific truths.
This mindset--a hybrid of arrogance, bias, intellectual rigidity, and ignorance of the many errors of science--is summarized by a reader who merely said, "Dr. Joe is a chiropractor. Don't waste your time and money on this book." This critic might be reminded that the Wright Brothers were bicycle repairmen who were also printers and that they never took a single university-level (or any formal) course on aerodynamics; Hedy Lamarr was an Austrian actress, who with George Anthiel, a composer, developed a "Secret Communications System" to help combat the Nazis in World War II.
Michael Faraday, a man who with no formal education worked in a bookshop and yet revolutionized our understanding of electricity; William Herschel was a German musician who discovered Uranus and several moons with a home-made telescope ridiculed by scientists; Donald G. Harden was a high-school teacher, not a cryptologist or criminologist, who cracked the code of the Zodiac Killer--an unknown murderer who terrorized the San Francisco area in the 70's, attacking couples in secluded areas, and George Mendel was an uneducated monk who discovered how genetics work.
If the people who gouge Dispenza's book solely on the grounds of what they perceived to be unacceptable academic credentials, had the power to give a thumbs up or thumbs down on Faraday's and the Wright Brother's ideas, how long might it have been until we had heavier-than-air flight, or the concept of the electromagnetic field in physics postulated by a book vendor?
Another veneomous review suggests,
"In terms of science, this book is less than total garbage." (Is that an admission that the book is NOT total garbage?)
Indeed--as if many of science's most-cherished truths have not ultimately been proven to be "garbage".
Lord Kelvin, Britain's leading scientific intellect at the time, gravely miscalculated the age of the earth. Albert Einstein, speculated incorrectly about the forces that hold the universe in equilibrium. Dennis Gabor, a Hungarian-British physicist, received the Nobel Prize for inventing holography - - but entirely failed to anticipate e-mail and the modem, considering them ridiculous notions. Stephen Hawking initially believed nothing could escape the gravitational pull of a black hole; he was wrong: radiation could. Wrong again, Einstein refused to believe the universe was expanding.
To bring matters closer to home, nutrition and public health experts advising the federal government now recommend that cholesterol no longer be labeled a "nutrient of concern". The person consuming five or six eggs a week was on a fast track to a heart attack. For decades men over 40 have been urged, often coerced, or firghtened into having an annual PSA test, but it turns out that the test's many problems led to it being given the dreaded "thumbs down" award by the US Preventive Services Task Force in 2012. Unconflicted experts who look closely at the science conclude that, unlike its `lifesaving' veneer, the best meta-analysis of PSA screening says that it doesn't save lives and adds nothing to the quality of life. The NNS (number needed to screen) has been calculated that to save one life you have to screen 1,410 men. So much for the test that was considered the gold standard for prostate cancer screening. Even it's founder, declared it worthless.
Here's the point. I'm not a neuroscientist and I doubt there are many who have rated this book are. Dispenza seems to me to be dispensing some fundamental truths as well as questionable assumptions. The task of the reader is to decide, on balance, if applying the practices Dispenza advocates enhance their life or not.
There are two major mistakes a person canvmake when reading controversial non-fiction books: believing everything one reads and believing nothing. Both are potentially grievous.
I would follow the Buddha's advice here:
"...Don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought... .
The Buddha taught that personal experience and the "counsel of the wise" should be the arbiter of what is or is not true.
Experience is not necessarily personal experience it can be vicarious. I don't need to play with scorpions to know it's not a good thing to do.
But who are "the wise"?
We all are, in one way or another. Read the five-star reviews and read the one-star, and if you choose to, read the book and some inner knowing--if you set aside your biases--will tell you whether the book rings true for you or not.
But recalling the triumphs of Mendel, Heddy Lamar and Faraday as well as the blunders of Einstein and Hawking, don't think everyone who discards this book as "scientific garbage" has cornered the market in truth.
And if you like eggs, you can start eating them again.
UPDATE 12/4/13: I've struggled with depression for most of my life, but since reading this book, my depressed periods are reduced. Doing Dispenza's daily meditation makes me feel so good, I'm hooked on it, but it takes a huge daily commitment and a willingness to seriously examine your emotions and beliefs.
UPDATE 3/25/14: now I'm using the meditation to work on my money situation. I've recently become aware of a way to make money that I hadn't considered before and now I'm collecting two paychecks. In addition to working my new home business, I visualize myself holding paychecks of certain amounts and seeing bank balances of certain amounts. As I do this I feel gratitude and joy at having reached my goals (I'm sure reality will catch up soon). I'm also visualizing myself fitting into clothes that I outgrew last year. With no emphasis on changing my eating or exercise habits, I've started to lose weight over the past three months. It's very gradual, but it's happening! My favorite Dispenza quote: "It's not your job to try to create it. It's your job to design it."
