I found Dr. Joe last year right as I was ending a 14 year relationship. Everything I knew was changing, I was at as low a place I have ever been, I felt completely broken. I happened to run across a video series from Dr. Joe and I was so beat down that I watched it and listened to what he had to say. The scientific nature of the material appealed to the academic in me, finally there was proof that real change was possible beyond just taping mantas around the house and trying to think "positively". Perhaps because I was at such a low point and felt I had no other options that I hadn't already exploited, I dug in. I bought "Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself" and instead of just reading it for the philosophical information, I actually did the exercises. For the first time in my life I began to meditate. In the meantime I was looking everywhere for more information on this subject and I found that Dr. Joe is not the only scientist to be saying these same things. I discovered Dr. Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden and others that are extolling the benefits of doing this inner work to change the programming we all received as children and that we now are trying to change. It all made sense to me in a way that nothing before really had...or maybe I just had never tried before because I was pretty well convinced of 'who I was', I was an angry person that didn't deserve for great things to happen for me...no one in our family tree had ever been successful...who did I think I was to want to be happy?? I had so much anger from a lifetime spent processing these same damn emotions of lack, fear, sadness, unworthiness and a host of others that I was like a tinder box, always on the verge of exploding! I had spent my entire life not caring if I lived another day or not because I thought I would never escape those internal monologues and the pain was wearing me down. But I kept doing the meditations every morning no matter what ( I haven't missed a day since sometime at the end of last Feb) and slowly I started to feel the change. It was like literally for the first time in my adult life I felt something other than fear and dread. I felt joy, complete joy for life and my place in it. I continue to study Dr. Joe's work and I believe in my heart that this information has not only saved my life but made it worth living. I am dedicating my Self to learn as much as I can so that I can help others know that there is a different path, one that offers true transformation. I can't express in words the difference I feel inside but the change is real and it is profound! I am thankful beyond measure for all the brave people that are showing us this truth, first among them I offer Dr. Joe my heartfelt gratitude.
