Breaking The Habit of Being Yourself

Dr. Joe Dispenza, and Lisa Garr, talk about being more positive and resilient, creating new patterns and change. Dr. Joe Dispenza, is a neuroscientist. Why is it so difficult to change? Defining what change is, is to be greater than your body, greater than time. You wake up, you go to see the same things happening all around you. The external environment, is turning on different circuits in your brain, to consciously create the same patterns in your mind. If you keep doing the same thing, the same emotions become hard wired in your brain.Nerves that fire together wire together. Learning is making new synaptic connections. They keep repeating the same patterns, this becomes our identity. We are a set of memorized behaviors and emotional actions. Neuroplasticity says that you are changed by firing new sequences, new patterns and new sequences. By changing your mind, it fires new neural connections. You are going to feel uncomfortable, even if its painful. Every time you have a thought, it produces a level of mind, for you to feel the way you were thinking.

If its negative thoughts, it produces a different level of mind. The moment you begin to feel the way you think, you think the way you feel. The cycle conditions the body to memorize the emotion unconditionally. It is a state of being. The mind and body working together. 95% of who we are by the time we are 35, is subconsciously running by our awareness. After, this time we have figured out everything, having it become hardwired. Mind and body work in opposition.Your body knows better than your brain. What does stress do to the mind and the body? Stress, is prepared by a threat from your internal environment. What was once highly adaptive, you are turning on the stress response with thought alone. This then becomes maladaptive, no one can survive under long term stress. According to the American Psychological Association, is that 50 percent of people die from stress. The real stress has to do with internal creation, our the outside environment. Stress is when the body is knocked out of homeostasis. Short term stress, is a function of survival. Long term stress, is when the body does not have time to turn back to order.

This is because we can think about events, thought is more real than anything else. The stress response, keeping the body out of balance, becomes diseases happening in the body. The body believes its in the same experience, over and over again. There is no energy for growth and repair, so if two cancer cells want to get together and start a cluster, it will happen. As the body is living in emergency mode, there is no time for relaxation. We become addicted with the adrenaline rushes, staying in bad environments. Sympathetic nervous system, turns on when stress and adrenal hormones are increased. The fight or flight response. You feel like a victim, from 20 years ago, it produces an emotional reaction; theres a refractory period of past experiences. If people do not know how to control their emotional reactions, it becomes a mood. If you keep this same refractory period going, it is a temperament. Years on end, it is a personality trait.

They need to break the chemical continuity that they have memorized. Your receptor sights become quantified, and eventually, if you change your patterns, it starts to slow down the receptors, the cells begin to change, immersion. When you are knocked out of balance, altered states of consciousness happen, driven by stress. How do the brain get out of this pattern? Nerve cells that no longer fire together, wire together. The frontal lobe gets turned on, metacognition, modified behavior to do a better job in this life. Breaking your communication, breaking the bond, from the observations. We have three brains in one, thinking, doing too being. The neocortex, making neural connections, intellectual data.

This is the thinking brain, you need to modify your behaviors in certain ways, actions equal to your thoughts; you will have a new experience. The second brain, the limbic brain. All 5 senses plug you into the environment, jumbles of neurons fall into place, releasing these chemicals is called feelings. When you are in a traumatic event, it changes your internal chemistry. When you pay attention to impulsive behaviors, restraining those thoughts, behaviors and emotions. The frontal lobe begins to quiet down that level of the mind. Mind is the brain in action, rehearsing mentally a new way of being. You install the neurological hardware to become wired in your brain. The moment you feel compassion, you turn on the limbic brain, learning to what your brain has intellectually understood.

Red brain, in the back is the being brain. Mind and body working as one. Replications are thoughts happening over and over again, neurologically you can create compassion, the thoughts become wired into the brain. Cerebellum, is the third brain. You embody that information, it then becomes an innate concept. Neurons are electrochemical, information begins traveling from one neuron to the next, creating a thought. Neurons connecting, begins to change your biological chemistry compound. If you are thinking and feeling in the same chemicals, in the same genes, if you are in that same cycle over time, you keep the same genes on, and others go off. Biologically, this pattern breaks in the brain, when you break the patterns, the neural connections, become changed, reconnected.

The nobel prize winner Lori Kandel, said you make these connections in your brain, repeating these thoughts , creating new nerve cells. Getting your body involved, philosophically, biologically and neurologically, this creates long term memories. When you have traumatic experiences, the trauma is not only in the brain, it is implicitly logged in the body as well. Regressing back to that particular emotion, that is when they have stopped evolving. Get beyond the analytical mind. Unlearning and relearning, un-memorizing an emotion in your body, moving from your past into a new future. When you can change the emotions from the mind, it breaks free from the past, that liberation is then joy.

If a person has difficulty in their lives, changing these unwanted patterns in the brain, creating happiness through different ways of meditation, gratitude and exercise. What makes great thinkers so unique, is that they all had moments, where they went through trauma. However, they began to ask speculative questions. The moment this happens, we begin to make the brain work, outside of the box. That signature, the identity, becomes a belief. Daring to be original, stepping outside of convention, having that moment of illumination. Then trust that image, making it dimensional, bringing it to life. Once you have that mind, you assemble it into reality. The more you learn, the more knowledge you have, learning from others experiences; the more enriched models you build in your brain. Reproducing the hardware in your brain, this all creates electric impulses in the brain, to change the neural chemical change.
