Becoming Supernatural  by Dr. Joe Dispenza – How common people are doing the uncommon

How Do We Change And Expand Our Energy For Maximum Physical Benefit?

  • When you switch attention from where you have to go or from your body and move to consciousness, the brain lights up and permanently changes
  • “When you stop identifying with your body and your environment and time, that’s the moment you reach pure consciousness” – Dr. Joe Dispenza
  • Only when you heighten awareness, can you go beyond
  • In that “place”, you feel less frustrated, less anxious, less judgmental, less impatient
  • Consciousness is executed in the brain- that’s what makes changes

Impact of Stress on Body and Mind

  • When something goes wrong or you feel threatened, the fight-or-flight switch goes on
  • Your attention goes all over the place because you’re trying to predict what’s going to happen next
  • It’s like a lightning storm in your brain fueled by stress hormones
  • When you’re stressed, you can’t learn or create or meditate
  • The average person lives 70% of their life in a state of stress
  • When you live in this “survival state”, you narrow your focus to the cause or the object, on the world or their body and get caught in a three-dimensional reality = Burn out

How to Remake Oneself

  • Go from a narrow focus and begin to widen it, this creates awareness
  • The act of opening your focus causes you to stop thinking
  • Slowing your brainwaves down, allows you to connect to your autonomic nervous system
  • This connection creates order and balance
  • When the two hemispheres of the brain work together – they’re in sync – you will feel great, a wholeness

How to Create Heart-Brain Coherence?

  • When you’re judgmental or anxious your heart beats out of rhythm because you’re “stepping on the gas and the brake at the same time”
  • Your heart is beating and your brain is thinking: t-rex is coming you should be running but you’re not = wasting your body’s energy
  • Regulate the heart center – when the heart beats regularly it creates a magnetic field up to 3 meters wide
  • You become more energy than matter
  • Elevate your emotional state – energy is frequency, emotion carries the thought to the frequency
  • Thoughts are the language of the brain and feelings are the language of the body” – Dr. Joe Dispenza
  • How you feel creates your state of being
  • Mediation means to become familiar with
  • Practice! Rest your attention, start calling up elevated emotions, then sustain it and keep practicing

How Does the Heart Fit In?

  • When people “activate” their heart through meditation, it releases a chemical called oxytocin- the love chemical – it signals nitric oxide and causes the vessels in your heart to swell, it feels full – it’s a great feeling!
  • This process amplifies energy in the brain and resets the baseline in the brain – even with former trauma or anxiety/depression

Where Does Anxiety Stem From?

  • Anxiety is the miss – when the survival gene is activated, you prepare for the worst-case scenario and start emotionally living in that possibility
  • Over time it becomes a subconscious program = panic attacks
  • You can’t control panic attacks because you’ve programmed them subconsciously
  • Self- regulating people create elevated states – their heart scans show they sustain heart coherence as they meditate
  • Out of meditation, monitors show they still have heart coherence
  • If you live in an elevated state and get good at it – nothing can take it away, you’re empowered
  • Therefore, you’re less likely to stress and compete and rush
  • When you start changing thoughts and feelings, you stop being a victim of your life and become a creator of your life

Are Thoughts More Powerful than Emotion?

  • Both are powerful
  • Thoughts produce an electrical charge in the quantum field, feelings produce a magnetic charge in the quantum field – both broadcast an electromagnetic signature
  • You need a balance of thoughts and feelings
  • You live in space and time – all dreams and realities are in it
  • If you create from that energy, you’re now the vortex – you’re playing by different rules = transcendental moment
  • Community groups can synchronize energy – one mind and one heart
  • Change the field and you change matter
    • Tumors disappear
    • Stage 4 cancer disappears
    • Depression lifts

Difference Between Mindset and Consciousness

  • Consciousness is awareness – 95% of who you are by the time you’re 35 years old is a set of unconscious programs that you’ve practiced many times
  • To change, become conscious of your unconscious thoughts

How to Become Conscious of Unconscious Thoughts?

  • Sit down close your eyes and observe your thoughts
  • Now, your thoughts aren’t unconscious any more
  • Ask yourself: how do you speak and act?
  • Its uncomfortable! But you need to move through that
  • The goal: become so conscious of thoughts, that you won’t become unconscious again
  • Live in creation not survival mode
  • It takes work to get awareness of your body and mind

How to Free Ourselves from Programming from the Past?

  • Become aware of who you are, how you speak, your feelings and emotions
  • Get untangled!
  • Use the formula:
    • Open your focus
    • Re-order your brain – break out of your past
    • Keep working toward the future, because you’re in your future
    • Let old grudges go
  • Wholeness comes from within

How to Strengthen Confidence in Yourself Despite Doubts?

  • Learning with your head, applying it with your hands, knowing it by heart
  • Mind, body, soul = thinking, doing, being
  •  Neuro-chemicals are released by new experiences and knowledge
  • Your body has new information and you become that knowledge – it’s who you are
  • You become immune to negative experiences or bad info
  • You can chemically change yourself from within
