A few weeks ago, I picked up the mail and had the best surprise. A parcel of books that my aunt sent to me. She and I read similar things and she had two Dr. Joe Dispenza books that she passed along to me.
I have been reading ‘Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself.’ It talks about how we hard wire thoughts, which become our mood, which become our temperament which then become our personality. We can change the habit of being ourselves with first, awareness of what these ‘hard wired’ thoughts and beliefs are, and then by care and attention to alter these and replace them with better thoughts and beliefs. Getting rid of that which doesn’t serve us.
And I do realize, I have been doing this for 5 years! Perhaps the slow play… 😂 started with being aware that I wasn’t as positive a person as I thought I was, and reading positive quotes daily, realizing what I was doing was the Law of Attraction and it went from there. I can’t believe it’s been 5 years that I have slowly been building on that.
What I like about this book is more of the science and the research behind why we are like this and how to make effective change. Meditation is the key, and there are instructions in part 3. It is taught as a process so you really learn and understand how to do one part before moving on to another.
The book has made me think, first of all, what characteristics do I want to ‘un-memorize’ and then secondly, what do I want to achieve? Sometimes, I think we can all relate to feeling that rut of ‘all I do is go to work, come home and make dinner, clean up, read or study or do paperwork (insert evening activity) and then wake up and do it all over again.’ But if I break out of my hard wired patterns of expecting and experiencing the same thing every day, what would I want to experience? What could I manifest and steer myself towards?
He says in the book, “if you keep revisiting familiar thoughts and feelings, you keep creating the same reality. To create something different from what you’ve grown accustomed to in your personal world, you have to change the way you routinely think and feel each day.”
What if you taught yourself to feel better each day and then your reality begins to reflect that? I have learned over the years that we all have more power over our mind than we realize. And if we learn how to hard wire thoughts and feelings that benefit us, we can choose wonderful things for our life experiences.
I love learning about this because I always go back to thoughts that we must be capable of so much more than we realize. The fact that there is so much we don’t know, and the potential and opportunity within that is fascinating.
