5.0 out of 5 stars Stepping toward your New Destiny!!!, February 18, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Breaking The Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One (Hardcover)
Have you heard about neuroplasticity? Probably you have, since it is becoming a common term thanks to the brain discoveries available with our latest technologies. If you haven't heard about it, I suggest you to google it while your copy of this book arrives because it will be a topic that will come up in a dinner conversation very soon :).

Dr. Joe on Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, combines the science with the HOW TO apply the new discoveries that surround neuroplasticity on our daily lives. Is your life already good? Make it even better! Do you think it could be better? whether your answer is yes or not, this is a must read. I highly recommend this book.

Why is it important to me that functional brain scans are showing that people are activating and expanding clusters of neurons in a specific area of the brain just by rehearsing a thought? Times are changing and to use neuroplasticity with all the amazing discoveries as a topic for your next dinner conversation is fun, but this book will teach you that true empowerment comes when we start to look deeply at our beliefs. It will teach you how to "install" the neural hardware needed to physiologically prepare you for new amazing events by creating the "real estate" of neurons ready to take advantage of opportunities that may have been invisible in the past. Dr Joe takes you on a journey on how to go from thinking to doing to being using our 3 brains, stepping toward your New Destiny in a state of creation and not in a state of survival or by default.
Like any other skill, "..if you keep installing, reinforcing, and refining your neurological hardware, the end result of that repetition is a neural network - in effect, a new software program. Just like a computer software this program (for example, a behavior, an attitude, or an emotional state) now runs automatically.." Dr. Joe says.

And my favorite question you can answer after reading the book:
"..Can you believe in a future you cannot yet see or experience with your senses but have thought about enough times in your mind that your brain is actually changed to look like the experience has already happened ahead of the physical event in your external environment? If so, then your brain is no longer a record of the past but has become a map to the future.."

Hi Tekwho1!!! Yes I have!!! I meditate every morning, I create my day and that makes me believe in future experiences that I have not experienced with my senses yet but that I have rehearsed (in alpha, while meditating) so many times that my brain and my body are prepared for the event ahead of the actual experience. When I do that I am able to use my brain as a map to the future instead of a record of the past. When I take it as serious as if I were preparing for the Olympics, the feedback I get from life, surprises me in ways even better than rehearsed. It takes will and determination but it works.. I can say it from experience.

Could you give an update to your life now as a result of applying these techniques?

Can you give an example of how this has changed you life. I don't mean things like meditating. Have you done anything different that you couldn't do before? Have you become wealthier or healthier or had a soul mate come into your life? What has happened as a result of reading this book? I find people who read this books often don't have what I would call success. I would like to know if I can expect my finances to improve, etc. Thank you.
