I was inspired to write this post after watching the video, 5 Steps To Change Your Life by Dr. Joe Dispenza. It’s a short video that summarizes decades of his research about how to create effective and lasting positive changes in people’s lives.
I believe he has been responsible for upgrading tens of thousands of people’s lives over the last few decades. Dr. Joe is sometimes challenging to listen to, but this short video is concise and at the same time provides the latest known proven methods that teach people how to create lives where they are able to achieve their goals and dreams.
Dr. Joe is a genesis. His years of scientific research have allowed him, through trial and error, to come to understand how our bodies and minds work and to understand how we can easily upgrade the quality of our lives.
So, read on to learn about the 5 Steps To Change Your Life as taught by Dr. Joe Dispenza.
5 Steps To Change Your Life
Predominantly, we are creatures of habit. Each day, 90% of our thoughts are the same thoughts we had yesterday and the day before. Our thoughts determine our feelings and our actions and reactions, therefore they are in effect creating the circumstances of our lives. If we are thinking, feeling, and doing the same things as we did yesterday, last week, and last year, it doesn’t allow much scope for our lives to change. Therefore, we must find a way to change our thought processes so that they will align with the new improved reality we wish to be living.
Step ONE to change your lives For the Better
Take some time out of your busy lives to disconnect from your world: Being alive and dealing with stuff all day every day is stressful. Everything we do involves some thoughts and emotions, and if these are in any way negative, they are detrimental to the overall quality of our life experience.
We need to make sure the kids are fed, we get to work on time, answer our phones when they ring and make sure we are presentable when meeting with friends. All these things, and so much more every day, require our attention to be placed in our ‘outer world,’ the world of sensation and experience outside of our bodies, minds, and emotions.
And while our attention is in this outer world, we are not in control of our ‘experience.’ We are, instead, being controlled by events, circumstances, and people outside of us.
Step one to change our lives requires that we stop giving attention to external stuff, and bring our attention back to the only place that we can effectively change our lives… and that is our internal worlds of thoughts and feelings.
So, turn off your phone, the TV, and your computer, send the kids out for a while, and take some time out just for yourself, without distractions. Sit or lie down, close your eyes and relax.
Step TWO to change your lives For the Better
Become aware of your breath. Notice how it is gently flowing in and out through your nose, and become aware of how, with each breath, you become more and more relaxed.
Bring your attention to the present moment. Center yourself where you are sitting and just notice, without judgment how you are feeling. Don’t ‘TRY’ to do anything, or feel anything, instead, just notice how you are in this moment. When you are centered, you naturally have more available energy to ‘create’ with because your energies are not being fragmented all over your outer world stuff.
When your mind wanders, which it will, to the future or the familiar past, just notice it without judgment and bring your attention back to the present moment. It is in THIS GENEROUS PRESENT MOMENT where we have energy available to create new thoughts which will lead to new feelings, which is the precursor of all change.
Step THREE to change your lives For the Better
Ask yourself “Am I happy to be defined by memories of my past, or do I want to create a new vision for my future?”
To answer this, you will need to know “What do I want in my life?”
Take time to contemplate these questions, and be genuine with your answers. Imagine that all things are possible and choose the best version of life that you want to be living. After all, why would you want to settle for second best (even if it’s only in your mind!)
By VISUALIZING the life you want to be living, you are changing the way your brain is firing. New sequences, new combinations, and new patterns of thoughts are being embedded into your neural pathways….. and if you repeat this process every day, with commitment and passion, these new pathways will begin gaining dominance in your thought patterns….
These new patterns will eventually become your ‘go-to’ thoughts when you are operating on auto-pilot throughout the day…. And because our thoughts are responsible for the way we are feeling, we will automatically be feeling better much more of the time. We are retraining our bodies on what our futures are going to feel like, emotionally.
It’s important that we remain sitting each session until we begin to ‘feel’ the emotions we want to be feeling in our future. For most people, this means we want to feel confident, inspired, healthy, abundant, loving, grateful, appreciated, etc.
Step FOUR to change your lives For the Better
This step involves rehearsing in your mind who you’re going to be when you open your eyes. We do this because if we don’t, we will just go back and continue our lives as they were before…. In other words, nothing will have changed.
The alternative is that WE DO CHANGE! And, after all, this is what we are here to learn about, right…… changing our lives for the better?
So, mentally rehearse the things you will have to do, the choices you will have to make, and the steps you will have to take. Review them over and over again, so that they become familiar and comfortable.
Step FIVE to change your lives For the Better
You cannot move into a better future if you are holding on to the familiar past…. (the one you are wanting to change.) So you need to make some decisions with regard to what thoughts belong in your upgraded future.
It’s quite obvious that old thought patterns including I can’t, I won’t, It’s too hard, I’ll never change, What’s wrong with me, It’s their fault, etc. do not belong in a future where the best version of ourselves has created an awesome life experience.
Strong, confident, happy, healthy, and wealthy people do not use this sort of LIMITING language…. So why would you?
We also need to think about our behaviors, habits, and actions. Do you habitually blame others, complain about things, or make excuses? Do you feel like the world is against you or that life is unfair? Your successful self will of course accept responsibility for all the good things in your life… as well as the few things that may not have worked out as planned!
What emotions do you want to take into your better future? Obviously, jealously will no longer be necessary because you will have everything that you want. Fear of failure is no longer applicable, and neither is a ‘lack’ mindset, (because I’m just assuming you are wealthy in your dream future.) But, hey, it’s your future and you are free to imagine it any way you like!
Do you want to be unhealthy? Probably not! Then you had better leave behind fear and insecurity as well.
The point of this daily exercise is to begin to condition our bodies to accept our upgraded mindset, (our desired future.) And if we do this every day, without fail (two or three times a day is better)…… OUR NEW PERSONALITIES WILL BEGIN TO CREATE OUR NEW PERSONAL REALITIES.
This 5 step process works because our personalities are made up of how we think, how we act, and how we feel. And if we change any one of these aspects of ourselves, WE ARE CHANGING OUR LIVES.
Why not try it for yourself?
