How many people actually believe in the idea that the way you think has some effect on your life.

The way you think has some effect on your life?

How many people actually believe in the idea that the way you think has some effect on your life. So how many people actually woke up this morning and consciously created a future? You know the biggest reason why people don’t do it is that you don’t really believe it’s true. You see if you knew on a gut level that it was absolutely true.

Would you ever miss a day? And would you ever let any thought slip by your awareness that you didn’t want to experience?

So your brain, according to neuroscience, is organized to reflect everything you know in your life. Your brain is a record of your environment. So record an artefact of your past. So if you believe this then,  then does your environment control your thinking? Or does your thinking control your environment?

Environment

“Or does your thinking control your environment?”

So if you wake up in the morning and you get out of bed on the same exact side as you did the day before.

You shut the alarm clock off with the same finger.

You slip into your favourite slippers, you shuffle into the bathroom and you use the toilet like you always do.

Then you walk over to the mirror and you look at yourself to remember who you are.

Then you get into the shower and you wash yourself in the same routine way.

You then groom yourself to look like everybody expects you to look and you go downstairs and you drink coffee at of your favourite mug.

Then you drive the work the same way as you did the day before.

You see the same people that push the same emotional buttons.

You do the exact things that you know how to do and you memorize and can do so well that you’re an expert at.

Then you hurry up and rush home so you can hurry up and check your emails so you could hurry up and go to bed.

So you’re going to hurry up and do it all over again.

Did your brain change at all that day

Now here’s my question. Did your brain change at all that day? We could say that you were thinking the same thoughts, performing the same actions that create the same experiences, that produce the same emotions, but secretly expecting something to change in your life.

So then as the environment turns on different circuits in your brain, you begin to think equal to your environment as you see the same people and go to the same places and do the same things at the same time.

It’s the external environment that’s turning on different circuits in your brain, causing you to think equal to everything that you know and as long as you think equal to everything that’s familiar or known to you, what do you keep creating more of? Same life.

Now the quantum laws still applying to you. You’re just thinking equal to everything that you know and you keep creating more of the same.

“To truly change is to think greater than your environment”

To change to truly change is to think greater than your environment, and every great person in history knew this. Whether it was William or Mahatma Gandhi or Martin Luther King or queen Elizabeth, the first or Joan of arc.

They all had a vision. They all had an idea, couldn’t see it, couldn’t smell it, couldn’t taste it, couldn’t feel it, but it was alive in their mind. It was so alive in their mind that they began to live as if that reality was actually happening now.

Personality

So can you believe in a future that you can’t see or experience with your senses yet, but you’ve thought about enough times in your mind that your brain is literally changed to look like the event has already happened? Neuroscience says it’s absolutely possible now your personality, your personality creates your personal reality.

That’s it. It’s that simple. And your personality is made up of how you think, how you act and how you feel.

“Your personality creates your personal reality”

So the present personality, who’s sitting here today, you, has created the present personal reality called your life. Would you agree? Would you also agree then if you wanted to create a new personal reality that on a fundamental level you would have to change the thoughts that you’re thinking, the behaviours and habits that you’re demonstrating and the emotions that you’ve memorized, that’s become part of your identity?

And most people try to create a new personal reality as the same personality and it never works. We have to become somebody else.

So then as you keep thinking the same thoughts, performing the same actions and living by the same experiences that produce the same emotions. There’s a principle in neuroscience that says nerve cells that fire together wire together.

And if you keep repeating the same States of mind-body over and over again, your brain begins to fire in the same sequences, in the same patterns and same combinations.

Mind

And whenever you make your brain work in a certain way, that’s called mind. The mind is the brain in action.

So as you remind yourself every day who you think you are, you’re causing your brain to fire in the exact same ways. And as they fire and wire in the same patterns over time, the brain moves into a very finite signature. And that’s called your personality.

Now that box in your brain isn’t literally a box, but it’s the most commonly wired neurologically fired programs that run redundantly because we keep doing the same things over and over again.

To change your mind then is to make the brain work and new sequences and new patterns and new combinations to begin to make the brain work differently. And the one ingredient that allows us to do that is knowledge or information because every time you learn something new, you make a new connection in your brain.

Learning

That’s what learning is. Learning is forging new connections. Remembering is maintaining or sustaining those connections, so now every time you have a thought, you make a chemical and a few have a great thought or an unlimited thought or a joyful thought, you turn on a set of circuits in your brain that fires in a very specific sequence, pattern and combination that produces a level of mind that turns on another part of the brain that makes a chemical for you to begin to feel exactly the way you are just thinking great or unlimited or joyful.

Now if you have a negative thought or an unhappy thought or a self-deprecating thought, you turn on a different set of circuits and a different combination, a different sequence in a different pattern that produces a different level of mind and the brain then begins to make a different batch of chemicals that signals the body for you to begin to feel exactly the way you were just thinking negative or unhappy or unworthy.

So the moment you begin to feel the way you think because the brain is in constant communication with your body, you begin to think the way you feel, which makes more chemicals for you to feel the way you think. Then you think the way you feel and then you feel the way you think. And then you think the way you feel. And some people do this for 20 or 30 or 40 years.

State of being

Now, the redundancy of that cycle over time creates what I call a state of being, in a state of being is when your mind and body are working together or your thoughts and feelings are aligned to a concept.

So thoughts are the language of the brain and feelings are the language of the body. And as people get caught in this cycle of thinking and feeling and feeling and thinking over time, they condition their body to memorize that emotion as well as the conscious mind.

“So thoughts are the language of the brain and feelings are the language of the body”

Habits

And whenever the body knows as well as the mind, that’s called a habit. A habit is when your body is the mind. Now, 95% of who you are by the time you’re 35 years old is a set of memorized behaviours, set of emotional reactions, beliefs, perceptions, attitudes that run just like a computer program.

So 5% of your conscious mind begins to work against 95% of what you’ve memorized. So the person wants to think positively, but they’re feeling negatively. They want to create their dream board, you know, and put up their future life. But they feel unworthy. That’s mind and body in opposition. We have to recondition the body to a new mind.

So how many people know someone who’s memorized suffering and you say to that person, Hey, did you read the book I gave you? What do they say? No. Hey listen, we’re going to go out to dinner. We’re going to go see some standup comedy and go for a walk along the water. Do you want to come? No. What do they say?

I’m insisting on this neurochemical order that no person, no thing, no experience can move us from it.

New state of being

And we have these three brains to allow us to move into a new state of being. And the quantum field, universal mind, whatever you want to call it, responds to who you’re being, not what you’re thinking, not what you’re feeling, but the combination of how you’re thinking and how you’re feeling called a state of being.

Now, most people wait for what crisis or trauma or disease or loss or, or a diagnosis to really want to change. They wait to the point where the ego’s brought to such a low level that they cannot go on business, as usual, any longer.

That’s when we begin to look at how we’re thinking or what we believe or how we act or attitude or what emotions we’re living by.

And my message is, why wait? We can learn and change in a state of pain and suffering, which tends to be the human model. Or we can learn and change in a state of joy and inspiration.

Summary

Expecting change without taking any action or doing anything different is one of the biggest human habits. Dr. Joe Dispenza brings this to life and explains how choosing certain environments in life can have a detrimental effect on our lives.

To truly change is to think greater than your environment. So remember, to change your personal reality you will need to change your behaviours and habits, your thoughts and your emotions. If Martin Luther King did it, then why can’t you?
