I bought this book for my 45 yr. Oh woe is me! Im wondering if I should have bought him the other books as well? I have cured myself on several occasions. See 1 question about Evolve Your Brain…. Lists with Ykur Book. Mar 19, Sanda rated it it was amazing Shelves: If you have any interest in neuroscience and neuroplasticity this is a book for you.
Especially if you are curious about the subject but are not sure where to start.
Dispenza breaks down the whole system and its processes in an engaging but simultaneously extremely educational way. Even if you are not a science geek you’ll be able to follow his explanations. This book is followed by Breaking The Habit of Bei If you have any interest in neuroscience and neuroplasticity this is a book for you.
How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One which focuses more on putting to practical use the knowledge acquired in this one.
What is the connection between our mind and our body? Do we really use only a small percentage of our brain’s capacity? Where and what is our consciousness?
Why are some people able to “believe themselves” out of terminal diagnosis? And why does willpower as we think of it has very little to do with any of it? These are some of the questions addressed in the book. It will stimulate and challenge your brain, it will change the way you think about your “thinking” and it will give you the basic understanding of how we learn and form habits in order to later help you try to break some of those habits.

Very thought provoking pun intended: Most of us spend much of our lives on “autopilot” and are essentially addicted to being ourselves to include our emotions, attitudes and most everything that we are. We build ourselves from childhood in the same way that we learn to ride a bicycle, for example. It is difficult at first and requires our utmost attention but we eventually wire our brain so that no conscious thought is necessary other than to decide to ride Very thought provoking pun intended: It is difficult at first and requires our utmost attention but we eventually wire our brain so that no conscious thought is necessary other than to decide to ride the bike.
Dr Joe’s point is that we do that almost entirely to the degree that for most of us almost everything we are becomes like that, that we have no conscious control over our own emotions and attitudes and other aspects of being.
However, we can, with conscious effort change ourselves. We can do that by focusing our conscious attention on who and what we want to be or change and then, through mental rehearsal and consequent experience and repetition rewire our brain to BE what we WANT instead of what we let ourselves unconsciously become.
I certainly am going to give it an effort. Reminds me very much of the kind of things that Carlos Castenada said through another form. He did kind of lose me in the epilogue. Seemed to be reaching a bit too far but then I haven’t really studied it or reread it so perhaps that is not a fair assessment. Just my initial thought after my first read. Apr 02, Ron rated it did not like it. The book is horribly written, even if the first 50 pages showed some promise of enlightening the audience.
The narrative, however, could have excised well over pages. The main problem is that the author decided after that first 50 pages to offer an introductory primer in basic neurology.
Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind by Joe Dispenza
Most lay people will gloss over it because it is too difficult and those with anatomy background will find it boring and skip it. The author also seems to be a narcissist who relies far too much on his own a The book is horribly written, even if the first 50 pages showed some promise of enlightening the audience.
The author also seems to be a narcissist who evolvs far too much on his own anecdotal tale to tell this story.
He was part of the execrable ‘What the Bleep evole We Know? The fact is that what we put into idspenza bodies has much more effect on the chemical output from the brain than any sort of will power we exercise. A prime example of Mr. Dispenza’s faulty education comes when he strongly suggests that two workers side by side in a toxic factory may exhibit one with cancer and one without after evokve years.
He is telling us that the attitude of one, as a single factor, is responsible. This is incredibly irresponsible and ludicrously stupid for an alleged scientist.
To single out yoour variable and suggest causality is the opposite of the scientific method. For all we know, the cancer ridden patient also went home to smoke, eat nothing but meat, sit in front of yiur TV, and drink booze all night long. The other may have been a vegan who rode a bike 50 miles for exercise each night after work, that exercise and the anti-oxidant rich diet washing the toxins away from his system the high fat diet of the other slob would retain the toxic chemicals in the body fat.
Mind over matter has nothing to do with a situation so described, as it is merely a factor of how each treated their respective body.
He may have healed his physical injury–though we are forced to be dubious about the dispenzz extent of his injury and ask whether he may be a fraud and a charlatan who exaggerated–but it was not through force of mind and neuroplasticity he even seems to misunderstand his own field’s edict about the innate power of the body to heal, not realizing that his physical treatments through chiropractic open up the nerve pathways to allow this innate power to take over, again having nothing to do with the mind or will of the patient.
A healthy attitude is of paramount importance overall, but it is not the single cause of any recovery. Truly terrible on almost brian level.

Jan 15, Brani rated it it was amazing. This book is life changing. If you’re open to it though I hate to call it a self help book because it really isn’t. It’s more than that because it goes deeper and is more “scientific based” but you don’t get lost in it.
A must read if you want to get unstuck. Un fel de manual de biologie de clasa a X-a, cu mai mult scris si mai putine desene braib cu exemple din studii experimentale. Cartea doreste a ajuta cititorul sa-si schimbe mentalitatea si a se mobiliza, insa aceasta idee centrala a cartii despre care se discuta pe aproape intreg parcursul cartii este efectiv abordata doar in ultimul capitol, restul fiind doar lectii de anatomie cerebrala, invatata deja de toti in liceu.
Probabil cartea ar fi un brsin in SUA sau alte tari unde sistemul de invatam Un fel de manual de biologie de clasa a X-a, cu mai mult scris si mai putine desene si cu exemple din studii experimentale.
Probabil cartea ar fi un succes in SUA sau alte tari unde sistemul de invatamant nu ataca astfel de subiecte. Feb 16, Stephanie McCown rated it really liked it.

In a nutshell, his book describes his own experiences with severe, life-altering dospenza and pain, and how he learned to train his brain to function around the injuries, allowing him to eventually evopve the injuries and regain full function of his body, much to the surprise of everyone who knew the extent of the injuries and the assumption that Dr.
Braib would be ioe a wheelchair for the rest of his life. I recommend this book for anyone who is curious about the brain’s function and its plasticity, which is wonderfully played out in Dispenza’s story of his personal experiences and that of others.
I just started reading this. I opened it up to an interesting nugget.
From the back cover: You can reprogram and evolve your brain. Feb 14, Brittany rated it it was ok. I know it seems like this has had a positive impact on people’s lives, which is awesome, but for people that are already aware of the brain and neuroplasticity, this will be a bit dull and repetitive. Most of the book discusses brain structures, what they do and how they work, and things we dipsenza that influence the brain’s functioning. It felt a bit like intro to biology all over again.
There is also a heavy focus on meditation. We know the positive effects of it, but sometimes the author’s ideas I know it seems like this has had a positive impact on youg lives, which is awesome, but for people that are already aware of the brain and neuroplasticity, this will be a youf dull and repetitive.
We know the positive effects of it, but sometimes the author’s ideas were a little extreme for me.
