You Are The Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter
About this deal
He emphasizes the point that if we want to heal from something, we need to signal new genes in new ways to create new results. I discovered that if I could teach people the scientific model of transformation (bringing in a little quantum physics to help them understand the science of possibility); combine it with the latest information in neuroscience, neuroendocrinology, epigenetics, and psychoneuroimmunology; give them the right kind of instruction; and provide the opportunity to apply that information, then they would experience a transformation...
It's a must read for everyone who wants to transform themselves into better living beings and who want to experience the unknown. To be fair the author also explains how to do your own tape. But since few are going to record their own instructions, it also works as a neat sales technique.You need to figure out which thoughts and behaviors you are engaging in that are signaling the genes to give you the problems you are dealing with now. You Are the Placebois the instruction manualfor how to produce miracles in your body, with your health,and in your life. It’s simply magnificent. This maybe the only prescription you’ll ever require.”
That's not even the real problem. The real problem is that he is bound to rub a lot of atheists the wrong way as he goes on to talk about how all of us are connected by the quantum field and waves of energy (true) and that this energy is God (his assumption). This is where most people get it wrong. They try to begin thinking positive- but they are still FEELING worry, fear, anxiety, shame, etc. This causes CHAOS within the body because mind and emotions are not in line. There are no schools of ancient spiritual wisdom sitting high on mountaintops in the Himalayas waiting to initiate us into becoming mystics and saints. Our lives are our initiation into greatness.If this is your personality then your personality creates your personal reality. It’s that simple. And your personality is made up of how you think, how you act, and how you feel. And finally, anyone who tries to tie the realm of Quantum Physics and neurophysiology are beyond presumptuous. It's pure overreach and unfounded science.
Despenza talks about the many functional brain scans he performs on people who sit down to meditate and visualize their body changing. Their brain is physically different before and after the meditation.
The second study, conducted in 2013, found that eliciting the relaxation response produces changes in gene expression after just one session of meditation among both novices and experienced practitioners alike.” Dr. Dispenza suggests that these jumps can somehow be used by the human mind to communicate to the body and soul. This is pure bunk, and I nearly tossed the book at this point. But I was almost done and felt the need to finish. Mistake. if you can experience a healing over and over again in the inner world of thoughts and feelings, then in time, that healing should finally manifest as an outer experience. And if you make a thought as real as the experience in the external environment, shouldn’t there be evidence in your body and brain sooner or later? In other words, if you mentally rehearse that unknown future with a clear intention and an elevated emotion, and do it repeatedly, then based on what you’ve learned, you should have real neuroplastic changes in your brain and epigenetic changes in your body.”
