While Dr Joe Dispenza is a best-selling author and boasts a whopping 1.7million Insta army, people outside of wellbeing circles may not have heard of him yet.
We say wellbeing, though really he deep dives into many spheres, including epigenetics, neuroscience, and brain-heart coherence.
While they might sound like text-book jargon, Joe simply explores the mind-body connection and strives to show how much power we hold within to dictate how our lives play out.
In particular, he looks at how behaviours and environment can influence the way our genes work, meaning the way that we think can change the way we act and, in turn, the way we feel.
This is thanks to quantum physics, which supports mind-over-matter claims that if we visualise scenarios before they take place then we can give leverage to them happening in reality.
Not only does this hold great significance for switching mindsets and creating a life where we can boost our mental health, but also transforming physical health too to avoid illness and disease.
If it’s all still sounding a bit too good to be true, or even a little gobbledygook, then Joe delivers workshops where he breaks it all down.
His week-long retreats, presented globally, help people really sink their teeth into his findings, inviting you to tap into this way of life through meditation, learning how to heal another person, discovering why trance is important, and programming the subconscious mind into a new future.
If time off work or being away from family is tricky, Joe also offers online courses that you can do at your own pace and has a variety of books to get you started; namely, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, You Are the Placebo, and Evolve Your Brain.
Speaking about his teachings, Dispenza says his interests lie in demystifying the mystical so that people have all the tools within their reach to make measurable changes in their lives.
Dr Dispenza said: “We all have our own personal limits, whether they are related to our ability to create abundance in our life, our capacity to make some type of change in our health or our body, our inability to stop recreating the same outcomes, or just our ability to believe in ourselves.
“When we step beyond our limitations, we become more unlimited.”
He continued: “After many years of witnessing human transformation, we now know that if people are given an opportunity to learn vital information about what’s possible, based in science and reason, and then given numerous opportunities to be stretched beyond their limits to experience the truth of that philosophy, some immaterial energy emerges in them.”
By opening eyes to these possibilities, Dispenza believes his work is just as impactful as therapy as he helps people squash their demons to overcome difficulties and manifest their dreams.
The Californian is also an advocate of the collective consciousness, meaning the ability to change our future depends not just on an individual but on society unified as one mind and one heart.
This all sounds great, you might think, but what makes him qualified to say so?
Well, other than his postgraduate education in neurology, neuroscience, brain function and chemistry, cellular biology, memory formation, and ageing, Joe also reportedly healed himself.
Back in 1986, while competing in a triathlon race, his bicycle was hit by an SUV and Joe shattered six vertebrae in an accident.
Despite his doctors’ advice and wife’s pleas, he refused surgery and instead talks about having healed the damage by thought alone.
Within twelve weeks, Joe was back on his feet and training again, and he credits his road to recovery of healing himself with just his mind.
