Change Your Life, Evolve Your Brain
In the increasingly exhausting rhythm of modern life, chronic stress has become one of the most harmful factors affecting society at a wide scale. In the face of this challenge, we have two options: to continue to unconsciously run our thought patterns that give power to toxic reactions or to use the extraordinary capacity of reconfiguring our brain in order to change for the better and to create a new reality around us.
“Evolve Your Brain. The Science of Changing Your Mind” is the book that will show you step by step how to reshape your mental circuits, accessing an evolutionary potential that we all have in us, but which we rarely notice because we are inclined to respond more easily to predictability and to a comfort zone welded in many years of repetitive thinking.
Starting from his personal example of curing a serious condition through the force of positive thinking combined with a healthy lifestyle, Joe Dispenza invites his readers on a fascinating journey through the anatomy of the human brain, but also through a series of analyses meant to prove that the deliberate metamorphosis of our own mind is the surest way to real evolution. Using the plasticity and learning capacity of the brain, you will be able to achieve remarkable results at all levels, in your personal and professional life.
Chronic stress is destructive
There are several types of stress. Sometimes stress can be useful, as in dangerous situations that require the activation of survival instincts. Automatically, a stress-specific chemism also occurs in the body. From physical stress, associated with exposure to harsh environmental conditions, to the emotional one, our body reacts through a complex defensive mechanism to stressful agents.
Regardless, however, of the nature of the factors that cause discomfort, stress hurts and cannot be digested. It is now clear that in our modern world stress is inevitable, but here is something that needs to be thoroughly taken into account: its frequency matters. Our body is not designed for continuous stress.
How do we end up living in chronic stress?
To put it briefly, this happens by giving credit to our own thoughts, including negative ones, which strengthens them. “Our thoughts might not be true, correct, healthy, precise or even constructive, but this is how we consider them, primarily because we are the ones who have configured them.” Their repetition creates automatisms, strengthening the synaptic connections to the point where most of the time we feel and think unconsciously.
In this way, we can get stuck in a vicious circle of erroneous and limiting beliefs, which will attract around us even more stress, and more waste of vital energy.
The metamorphosis towards a creative life model
Just as our body is not designed to withstand chronic stress, the brain is not designed to ever stop learning. Overcoming one’s own limiting thought patterns starts from the simple intention of changing ourselves. Even if the unknown can create discomfort as we instinctively prefer familiarity, our mind has the power to direct our being towards new foundations and life attitudes.
Here are some steps to follow when engaging in this process:
- We must carefully examine who we are and who we want to become, making careful self-observation a daily habit.
- By identifying the harmful patterns, we begin to rid ourselves of them through an effort of will. When we gain control over old thought patterns, our brain begins to eliminate redundant and unused ones, just like we modify or delete a program from a computer.
- At the same time, we need to establish new neural networks by mental practice. We have to visualise the inner change to which we aspire, imagining the person we want to become. Mental practice involves focused contemplation, in a state of disconnection from external stimuli. In this sense, the book also offers some precious information about different brain waves and how we can access the specific meditation frequencies.
“Changing our brain means changing the future.” Basically, if we train it to get rid of old habits, it will know how to follow the guidelines of new thought patterns. Finally, we can transform ourselves and become what we have imagined, using our brain’s neuroplasticity and infinite learning possibilities.
Priority number one: to live more consciously
We know it intuitively; quantum physics and other fields of science demonstrated it: the more powerful and focused we radiate our thoughts, the stronger we influence the outside world. Our personal reality reflects the way we think. In other words, “thoughts influence physical phenomena and interact with all matter in the universe.” This means that we are fully responsible for what we think. Under these circumstances, do you choose to think negatively or constructively?
Will you keep following old automatisms or will you evolve your brain to a higher reality, in which you can manifest your highest potential?
