This past week, I watched Dr. Joe Dispenza’s video on Evan Carmichael’s YouTube channel entitled, “Break the Bad Habits of your Brain and Attract Success Daily!”. In this article, I will share my top three favourite habits I learned, so follow on for Dr. Joe Dispenza: 3 Things You Can Learn from Him!
Habit 1: Step into the Unknown
In illustrating this habit, Dr. Dispenza talks about how past experiences like losing your job, divorce etc can take people down a road of horrible emotions. People begin to wallow in self-pity, are always complaining, blame others and feel guilty when trying to cope with these terrible past experiences. However, when people get up and decide not to do these things, they are moving into a new self and away from their old self. He refers to this step as “stepping into the river of change”.
He gives an example about somebody going about their day and things going well for about the past two hours. This is where Dr. Dispenza highlights the fact that the moment somebody notices that they are no longer making the same choices as before, they are going to feel uncomfortable.
This is because people would rather hold onto emotions they are accustomed to than to step into the unknown because at least they can feel something familiar. As a result, the moment somebody realizes that they stop making the same choices they always make, the person must be prepared to be uncomfortable because he or she is awakening into a new self.
Habit 2: Open Your Heart
Dr. Dispenza explains how people are constantly in survival mode with this point. In his first example, he mentions that 70% of the time, people in their waking lives live in a state of stress or survival. It has become a part of us as human beings that we do not even realize when we are doing this.
He explains how as human beings, we are always scanning the environment to determine if it is safe or not. If there is something unusual in the environment, the body will inform us, moving us into a state of arousal.
This leads to us turning on the very systems that begin to say “danger” and “threat”. As a result, when this happens, we immediately begin to anticipate an outcome like preparing for what could go wrong, for instance.
In his second example, Dr. Dispenza uses how the pressure men face to be providers and be successful, causes them to not open their hearts because, at that point, they are trying to survive and thrive in the environment. However, he has seen that when men choose to open their hearts by doing something that makes them happy, for instance, they become free.
Habit 3: Shift Your Mindset
Joe Dispenza sees how waiting for something or somebody to curb an emotion has a huge influence on the way people live their lives. He gives the example of asking somebody the reason they want wealth and the person responds with freedom. Dr. Dispenza suggests that the person should focus on the freedom aspect.
This is because the person understands the sponsoring thought or emotion so there is no reason the person should wait to have wealth before they can feel free. Dr. Dispenza explains that someone should not wait until they have something that they want to feel a certain way. Want to feel happy? Then feel it now!
