One of the best books I've read in my entire life of 35 years lol This book makes you realize how much your though process contributes to your health whether or not you develop a disease etc. I personally overcame my Crohn's Disease and many of the concepts in this book were part of my healing journey. The best part is that Joe does a great job articulating the information and then using the science to back it up. I cant recommend this book enough. cheers :)
It seemed so logical to me that if a placebo can lead to healing, maybe science ought to be looking at that as a side-effect-free healing method. This book is terrific! It lays a solid foundation from scientific studies to show the proven power of the placebo effect, goes on to describe what science knows about how it works, and speculates on how we as individuals can harness this for our own healing. What isn't mentioned, but logically is implied, is that you can actually take charge of your life experience using this method. It doesn't claim particular results, but I have been doing the meditations (I bought them online), and already I can see a change in my brain wave patterns. I tend to a monkey mind, and since the meditations, I have a calmer, quieter mind and now ideas and shifts in perspective are coming to me that are very positive and helpful for my personal goals. I highly recommend this for anyone who is intrigued with the placebo effect and would like practical instruction for harnessing it.
This book may represent a major breakthrough in the life of humanity. On the other hand, it may be a lot of new-age blather. The jury's out. However, it is well-written and readable, relates a healing method to modern science in an understandable way, and offers clear, understandable directions on how to make yourself over, healing your physical illnesses in the process. I found it a challenging read, because it asks the reader to question many preconceptions and biases. I also found it a hopeful read, and my tentative efforts to follow the instructions seem to be having positive results, although it's early days yet. Using the book to remake your life requires a willingness to commit some time, effort and self-discipline over the long haul. Most of the people whose successful cures he relates were working with his system for two to three years before any major healing took place. To heal or change a number of things would take several years. But you'll be putting in those years anyhow, and if there's a chance you'll be well at the end of them, it just may be worth the investment.
this book takes a more "scientific" look at the spiritual idea that thoughts are things and can create. It guides you through how and why it works and includes all kinds of examples of studies and stories of people who have made the change. Very interesting ideas presented here. I also ordered the meditation CD's to go along with it and am looking forward to getting started once they arrive. If you've ever wanted to heal yourself.. from virtually anything.. this is a must read.
I'm a staunch follower of Dr. Joe. I have a scientific background and always need to know why. So when Dr. Joe Dispenza came into my life a couple of years ago, it changed my approach to meditation. I've attended his workshops and read all his books. Some people don't need all the scientific proof and reap the multiple benefits of meditation. I'm sure they would gain even more from their practice by reading this book. Dr. Joe shows exactly what's happening when you meditate, in easy English terms. You don't need a scientific dictionary beside you! His goal has been to produce scientific proof of why meditation works, what it does, and show us that "miracles" are normal and available to everyone. Our genetics aren't necessarily our destiny as epigenetics and neuroplasticity, the "new" sciences are revealing.
There are several foldout pages of actual scans and recordings from previous workshop subjects which are interesting and revealing. I did see many of these in a previous workshop in Vancouver and found them amazing. There is nothing we can't achieve if we believe and persevere in a daily meditation practice. The meditations must be done with purpose and Dr. Joe Dispenza is a scientist and mentor who will show you how to create miracles in your own life.
I liked the compilation of various interesting studies in this book. I didn't like the author's promoting of his "product," although maybe some people will find his product useful. You can easily skip those parts, though. All in all, I recommend this book because of the interesting studies.
this book should be a mandatory study for college if not highschools (perhaps more simplified for k12). I truly wish I had access to this knowledge 20 yrs ago. but again, better late than never. I'm greateful to live in this era to have access to this knowledge. This book alone, with its actions steps will turn your life around, as it did literally the day I finished reading it, and being conscious of how thought s and mental observation s change our reality.
This book literally changed my life. It completely changed my mindset. I now understand so much more about life. Everybody should read this. We all are the placebo and we can change our life with the right mindset no matter what happens to us.
