Becoming Supernatural: How Common People Are Doing the Uncommon, by Dr. Joe Dispenza, can place you on the path of transforming your future - in the present.
This is a time in history when it's not enough to know - this is a time in history to know how...Dr. Joe Dispenza.
Right now - in the present - is the only time we have. The past and the future are of value only in so far as they enable us to make the changes needed to get where we want to be(come). If you want to live a more powerful life that is not simply a replay of your past beliefs and habits and is willing to take some reasonable steps to get there, then you need to read Supernatural: How Common People Are Doing the Uncommon.
It's been almost four years since Dr. Joe's last book, You are the Placebo. Fully 93% of those who wrote an Amazon review has rated it as a 4 or 5. My own review is one of those, which I'm proud to say is currently ranked #1 of the more than 700 so listed.
Given that Dr. Joe literally saved my life several years ago when he was still working full-time at his chiropractic practice, it's a small repayment. For several weeks, I suffered incredible non-stop pain from a ruptured disc. The region's top surgeon opined that "Your only option is spinal fusion." Dr. Joe disagreed. With his bodywork, meditative teachings, and encouragement, along with training suggestions from Professor Bradley Steiner, my martial arts instructor of 30 years, I was able to cheat the hangman as my disc repaired itself.
Several years of quantitative analyses on students in his Advanced 4-day workshops in many venues, literally around the globe have led to this, his latest book. Confirmation of the model came from analyzing and measuring brain waves/scans, neurotransmitters, and heart coherence, as well as internal and external energy levels. He concludes, "We now have data from common people, just like you and I, so that once they understand what they're doing and why they're doing it, (practicing and implementing) the 'how' gets easier." You can "tune in to frequencies beyond your material world" by breaking habits of the old self and creating a new one.
Paying attention is being present. We spend the majority of our time either living by past emotions/habits or anticipating the future overlain with the old guideposts. When we get there, that past is recycled into the same behaviors, and nothing really changes.
Eastern mystics and religious leaders have advanced the practice of "being present". But this powerful concept doesn't keep us from dredging up past behaviors and replicating them, if not in the present, then certainly in the future, when we invariably "fall out of being present". You are the Placebo, now reinforced "on the proof side" with an additional four years of scientific, measurable, objective data as recounted in Supernatural, clears the decks. Common people just like us can now see how to go about becoming uncommon, and capable of achieving benefits on the scale of those who have led the way.
Understand that your thoughts create your life. Accept that if you keep thinking the same way, you'll have the same (unsatisfactory?) experience, the same mental anguish, the same untoward physical response. In any skill set - martial arts, mountain climbing, driving a car, you're going to respond in the event the same way you train. Without a change, won't your future be just like your past, since those habits are still the drivers of that future?
You may not have attended a conference. But as my Canadian friends like to say, "No worries!" Don't hesitate. Read Supernatural and see how all the evidence indicates that effecting change is much less complicated than you might imagine. Also, read You Are the Placebo, then get to work following the trail Dr. Joe has blazed, and which is now being successfully traversed by so many others just like you.
A few things help me stay on the path. When negative self-talk crops up, I quickly defuse its effect by simply thinking "Release". You might visualize the idea sailing away or disintegrating - before it can become a feeling, followed closely by a physical sensation of tension, anger or depression. Even if it persists for a while, it seems to have been stripped of its power to bother me. Soon, I get up and do something as it fades away, having deprogrammed my subconscious one more time.
Second, find a couple of things each day for which to be grateful. Try to choose something you'd like which has not yet taken place. The powerful act of expressing gratitude before it happens is an element in creating the future you wish to experience. Dr. Joe is the only person I've ever met who suggested this...and it works!
Third, certain words or phrases can be highly emotive. Before arising each morning, I state silently, "I approach this day with Gratitude, Respect, Observation, and Wisdom (GROW)."
Finally, release these thoughts into the Quantum Field, asking that they are organized in a helpful way; that they are returned in an unexpected, powerful, and positive manner.
Dr. Joe states, "The only way to become "supernatural" is we have to start doing what feels unnatural - then keep doing it over and over again. We can create better lives for ourselves. In fact, each of us possesses the anatomy, chemistry, and physiology needed to become supernatural—it’s merely a matter of awakening it and activating it."
As you reflect upon and practice what Dr. Joe teaches in his seminars around the globe and now, in his fourth book, Supernatural: How Common People Are Doing the Uncommon, you will be acquiring the tools necessary to build an exceptional future before it even arrives! Better able to regulate your internal state regardless of what's going on in the outside world. Your behavior will more closely align with your intentions. You'll be more attached to the future-present than your past-present. As your thoughts and actions begin to mesh, what's unnatural will become supernatural. I am grateful that these elements are at work in my own life. They can help transform yours as well!
