Wise words from Dr Joe Dispenza – International lecturer, researcher, corporate consultant, author, and educator.
As humans, we have the ability to look where we are, where we’ve been and where we want to go.
Changing Your Thoughts, Behaviours, Beliefs & Actions
The catch is if you don’t trust that changing your thoughts, behaviors, beliefs, and actions will produce a change, then nothing in your life will actually change.
Why? Because this lack of trust means you’re anticipating the same experience, and that anticipation creates the same emotion.
It’s a bit being like being on a hamster wheel – If we don’t find a way to get off the wheel, then we’re heading for the same destiny, maybe repeating mistakes from the past.
Whether our lives are great or whether they’re falling apart, we can always seem to find reasons to be unhappy.
It’s not just you though, it’s actually the result of survival genes at play – which anticipates the worst outcome, so we have a better chance for survival.
But The Choice Is Yours
Dr Joe shared the story of when he met a lovely 97 year old woman from the mid-west of the USA.
He asked her “what’s your secret to longevity?” She simply replied “You know I’ve always just been a happy person”.
“Were there every any reasons for you to be unhappy in your life?” he asked.
“Oh yes, lots of them” she replied.
“So is it fair to say you were more committed to happiness than unhappiness?”
She looked at him slightly puzzled for a minute, and then replied, “Yes, actually. That’s the truth.”
Living In A State Of Low Frequency
Often people can be frustrated, impatient, angry, judgmental towards themselves, jealous of other people’s experiences, or fearful that the work they are doing is not actually working.
You might realise that it’s not the real you and you’ve shed light on an aspect of yourself that you need to overcome.
The more you live in this state of low-frequency, the more it’s almost as if you’re looking for, or creating a reason, to be frustrated.
Either way, as you feed that feeling (which produces a set of chemicals in your body equal to that feeling), that kind of interaction between your internal and external world causes things to get worse. The result is that you become more frustrated, more fearful, and more impatient.
For many people, these feelings become a downward spiral and they struggle to stop it.
Try This So Simple Exercise
With that said, here’s a simple exercise that Dr Joe recommends you can begin to incorporate into your life:
- Become aware when the program is running
- Stop the program
- Start again
Yes—it can be that simple.
Research shows that when you start making changes for yourself and doing certain things that are good for you, you’ll make more of the same choices.
It’s this process of staying conscious and choosing happiness that makes all the difference in our lives.
Even if you have to excuse yourself from a situation for a minute or two, these three simple steps can change the course of a conversation, a situation, your health…or even your life.
