It took one moment to change Joe Dispenza's life forever.
A car sent him toppling off his bike, causing multiple fractures to his vertabrae. Several doctors said his only hope of walking again was to fuse some of the vertebrae in an operation that would leave him with a lifetime of pain and limited mobility.
But as a chiropractor, Dispenza knew enough about spinal health and his own post-accident physical state to take a remarkable risk: he refused the operation and, along with a careful therapeutic program, literally thought his way to healing. Nine months later, he was able to walk and function as well as he had before the accident, and he credits a large amount of that recovery to the power of his own mind.
This incredible experience spurred Joe on to learn about this most important tool that we all possess—the brain—and he passes that potent knowledge on to you. He explores how the brain learns, how it processes information, and, when it isn't stimulated enough by new experiences, how it can become addicted to comfortable, familiar patterns.
Every time we think a thought or feel an emotion, the brain sends chemicals throughout the body that reproduce that feeling, often giving us a physical reaction. Through prolonged repetition, self-limiting thoughts and feelings can become habitual—producing mindsets such as unworthiness and attracting negative experiences—yet we can still crave them, even when they don't feel good.
But all this can change—and Joe Dispenza will show you how to do it. Step by step, he'll walk you through the structures of the brain, how your thoughts and emotions become hardwired in the brain, how to recognize the patterns you want to change, and finally, how to create new, positive habits that will not only change your life, but also change you—into the person you've always wanted to be.
Why do we keep getting the same jobs, taking on the same relationships, and finding ourselves in the same emotional traps?
Dr. Joe Dispenza not only teaches why people tend to repeat the same negative behaviors, he shows how readers can release themselves from these patterns of disappointment.
With the dynamic combination of science and accessible how-to, Dispenza teaches how to use the most important tool in ones body and life— the brain. Featured in the underground smash hit of 2004, " What the Bleep Do We Know!?, " Dispenza touched upon the brain's ability to become addicted to negative emotions. Now, in his empowering book Evolve Your Brain he explains how new thinking and new beliefs can literally rewire one's brain to change behavior, emotional reactions, and habit forming patterns.
Most people are unaware of how addicted they are to their emotions, and how the brain perpetuates those addictions automatically. In short, we become slaves to our emotional addictions without even realizing it. By observing our patterns of thought, and learning how to 're-wire the brain' with new thought patterns, we can break the cycles that keep us trapped and open ourselves to new possibilities for growth, happiness and emotional satisfaction.
Combining science and psychology, an empowering guide helps individuals break away from the cycle of negative behaviors by revealing how new thinking and new beliefs can change one's behavior, emotional reactions, and habit-forming patterns.
