In the past 1.5 years since my cancer diagnosis, I have been reading voraciously, interested in a wide range of subjects pertaining to healing, nutrition and especially the body/mind connection. I’ve made notes about all the books I have read, and want to share the best ones with you.
Dr Joe Dispenza, author of Evolve your brain, was one of the experts in the film ‘What The Bleep Do We Know?” (a highly successful documentary on quantum physics, spirituality, neurology and evolutionary thought). Some of the points in his book include:
- 90% of people’s emotions are negative. It’s an additive state and we can change that state.
- When we are in a state of creation (the selfless state), the frontal lobe of the brain quiets down the other circuits in the brain (the negative, stress parts of the brain). Meditation helps liberate the emotion out of the body – emotion exists more in the body than in the mind.
- Meditation can recondition the mind & body.
- The Mind is the Brain at work. We have 100 billion neurons in our brain. The Mind is the product of the Brain. So what can change the Brain?? -> It’s Consciousness. So when we are Conscious (Aware) this is the state where we can truly make changes.
Dr. Dispenza teaches in-depth courses that shows meditations and exercises to repattern your brain, which repatterns your body. I will be attending his course, and can give you a review of that soon.
His book is definitely worth reading, and it is available in the local libraries. The middle section is very technical about the brain, too technical for me, so I skipped over that part, but the book is still absolutely worth picking up.
Here is Dr. Dispenza speaking about this topic on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drTKVflFXFQ
A lovely friend of mine named Leslie attended his courses and had truly remarkable results. She has MS (multiple sclerosis) and tells her story here.
