BREAKING THE HABIT OF BEING YOURSELF-Overcoming Your Body
(Recap of Chapter 3 )
Why would anyone want to OVERCOME their body???
Well, the simple answer to that is PAIN!!!
So, how do we do that?
In chapter three of Dr Joe Dispenza’s book BREAKING
THE HABIT OF BEING YOURSELF, Dr Joe gives a step
by step approach of how we overcome the body aches and pains.
He states that every time we have a thought, we have a
biochemical reaction in the brain that makes its way to the body.
Oh, you say…our brain is producing chemicals???
Well yes…good chemical for health and good chemicals for
stress situations that if we stay in a stress situation too long
the chemicals change from good to bad, or hurtful to our bodies.
That’s why we hear STRESS is the cause of many, if not most of
So, how do we actually combat that, and produce more healing
chemicals or hormones for our bodies?
Here are some considerations for taking charge of our mind-bodies.
THE THINKING AND FEELING LOOP
There is a synchronicity between the brain and body.
We begin feeling the way we are thinking and because of
this synchronicity, we soon begin thinking the way we are feeling.
DOES YOUR MIND CONTROL YOUR BODY?
OR DOES YOUR BODY CONTROL YOUR MIND?
What most people don’t know or understand is when
we think about a highly charged emotional experience,
we are firing and wiring our brains to that past experience
by reinforcing those circuits into an even harder wired.
OFTEN WE ONLY APPEAR TO BE AWAKE.
Repeated firing and wiring by the body
causes the body to actually become the subconscious
The conscious mind no longer has much to do
with our behaviour. The body begins running on automatic
and we (the conscious) go unconscious.
HELP IS ONLY A THOUGHT AWAY!
Breaking the habit of unconsciousness requires the conscious mind and
body working together again. We must and can consciously
aware of what the body is doing and override those actions by more
favourable actions thus producing healthy chemicals (hormones) that
produce healing. Just as negative emotions can become embedded
Into the operating system of your subconscious, so can positive ones.
WE CAN SIGNAL OUR GENES TO REWRITE OUR FUTURE.
Our genes are as changeable as our brains. Genes are always in flux
and are being influenced. These genes are activated (positively)
when there is growth, healing, and learning. They are also activated
(somewhat negatively) when there is stress, emotional arousal
Just by changing our thoughts, feelings, emotional reactions,
and behaviours (or example, making healthier lifestyle choices
with regard to nutrition and stress level), we send our cells
new signals and they express new proteins.
PERPETUATING OLD STATES OF BEING.
If we stay in the same toxic state of anger, the same melancholy
state of depression the same vigilant state of anxiety, or the
same low state of unworthiness, those redundant chemical signals
keep pushing the same genetic buttons, which ultimately cause
the activation of certain diseases.
As a result of stress or a habit of being repeatedly and consistently
angry, fearful, sad, and so on, the DNA that the peptides use to
produce proteins will start to malfunction.
Now this is what’s important to know:
- If we stay in the same routine, familiar conditions-creating
the same emotional reactions by doing the same things,
thinking the same thoughts, seeing the same people,
and memorising our lives into a predictable pattern,
we are headed for an undesirable genetic destiny.
- It is estimated that 90% of the thoughts we have today are the
same thought we had yesterday. So to change the results of
SAMENESS and ROUTINE. The quantum model asserts that
we can signal the body emotionally and begin to alter
a chain of genetic events without first having any actual
physical experience that correlates to that emotion.
We don’t need to win the race, the lottery, or the promotion before
we experience the emotions of those events. We can
experience joy or gratitude ahead of the environment to such
an extent that the body begins to believe that it is already “in”
that event. As a result, we can signal our genes to make new proteins
to change our bodies to be ahead of the present environment.
EXAMPLE OF HOW WE CAN SIGNAL NEW GENES.
In Japan, a study was conducted to find out what effect one’s state of mind
might have on disease. The subjects were placed into two groups of
patients with type 2 diabetes, all of whom were dependent on insulin.
At the time of this study, the people involved were being treated with
insulin pills or injections to help control their elevated blood-sugar levels.
Each group had their fasting blood sugar level tested to establish a baseline.
Next, one set of subjects watched a comedy show or an hour, while the control
group watched a boring lecture. The test subjects then ate a
delicious meal, after which their blood-glucose levels were checked again.
There was a significant discrepancy between the subjects who enjoyed the
comedy show and those who viewed the uneventful lecture.
On average, those who watched the lecture had their blood-sugar levels
rise 123 mg/dl high enough that they would need to take insulin
to keep themselves out of the danger zone. In the joyful group,
who had laughed for one hour, their after dinner blood-sugar values
rose about half that amount (slightly outside of normal range).
The gene sequences of the jovial individuals were examined it was discovered
that these diabetic individuals had altered 23 different gene
expressions just by laughing at the comedy show they’d seen.
Their elevated state of mind apparently triggered their brains to
send new signals to their cells, which turned on those genetic variations
that allowed their bodies to naturally begin to regulate the genes
responsible for processing blood sugar.
The real key to learning here is to get out of the routine; those day-to-day
activities and thinking that you do day in and day out. Start
thinking new thoughts, meeting new friends, doing new things and
your brain will reward your by triggering new gene expressions
that will allow you to BREAK THE HABIT OF BEING YOURSELF.
