With the Mind-Opening Dr. Joe Dispenza from What the Bleep

I first heard of Dr. Joe Dispenza when I saw the movie What the Bleep Do We Know. (Fabulous movie on Quantum Physics.)  He was also in the film Further Down the Rabbit Hole.

I was so excited to get to see him in a more intimate setting at Unity of Phoenix.  He was there twice.  I got to spend some time with him after each appearance and have learned so much from him.

The pictures above and below were when I got to see him for the third time in the Bahamas as he was a featured speaker for a company we were working with at the time.  It was great to see him this time as by now he knew me and we got to have some really great conversations.

The biggest thing I learned from Dr. Joe is that many people have a physical addiction to struggle.  It explains why battered women stay with their abusers and also why many people continually create chaos in their lives.

When you understand that the receptors for the chemicals released are the same as the receptors for heroin, it starts to make sense.  We become physically addicted to these chemicals and when things are not going along as normal will actually create scenarios to bring about the stress needed to release the chemicals we need to “get the hit”.  All unconsciously, of course.

This made so much sense to me when I fully got it as to why people would continue to trash good results or go back to struggle situations.  In understanding this, it’s how we can then change it.  It’s a matter of changing the connections in our brain.

Here’s a writeup that gives more information about Dr. Joe’s background:

Dr Joe Dispenza, D.C., studied biochemistry at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J. He has a Bachelor of Science degree with an emphasis in Neuroscience and also received his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating magna cum laude.

Over the last 11 years, Dr. Dispenza has lectured in over 17 different countries on six continents educating people about the role and function of the human brain.

His approach, taught in a very simple method, creates a bridge between true human potential and the latest scientific theories of neuroplasticity. He explains how thinking in new ways, as well as changing beliefs, can literally rewire one’s brain. The premise of his work is founded in his total conviction that every person on this planet has within them, the latent potential of greatness and true unlimited abilities.

His new book, Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind connects the subjects of thought and consciousness with the brain, the mind, and the body. The book explores “the biology of change.” That is, when we truly change our mind, there is a physical evidence of change in the brain.

As an author of several scientific articles on the close relationship between the brain and the body, Dr. Dispenza ties information together to explain the roles these functions play in physical health and disease.

In his research into spontaneous remissions, Dr. Dispenza has found similarities in people who have experienced so-called miraculous healings, showing that they have actually changed their mind, which then changed their health.

      Thanks Kimberly! To answer your question, I think to massively increase the input of positive programming helps immensely. Reading, watching videos, going to live events and spending time with positive people.
