Stress is KILLING You | This is WHY and What You Can Do | Dr. Joe Dispenza (Eye Opening Speech)

Sharing buttons:

It's a scientific fact

that the hormones of stress

down regulate genes and create disease,

long-term effects.

Human beings because of the size of the neocortex

we can turn on the stress response just by thought alone

We think about our problems and turn on those chemicals.

That means then,

our thoughts could make us sick.

So if it's possible that our thoughts could make us sick

is it possible that our thoughts could make us well?

The answer is absolutely yes.

All organisms in nature can tolerate short-term stress.

You know, a deer gets chased by a pack of coyotes

when it out runs the coyotes

it goes back to grazing and the event is over.

And the definition of stress

is when your brain and body are knocked out of balance,

out of homeostasis.

The stress response is what the body innately does

to return itself back to order.

So you're driving down the road

someone cuts you off, you jam on the brakes,

you may give them the finger

and then you settle back down and the event is over and boom.

Now everything is back, back to normal

but what if it's your coworker sitting right next to you

and all day long

you're turning on those chemicals

because they're pushing all your emotional buttons.

When you turn on the stress response

and you can't turn it off

now you're headed for disease

because no organism in nature can live in emergency mode

for that extended period of time.

95% of who we are by the time we're 35 years old

is a memorized set of behaviors, emotional reactions

unconscious habits, hardwired attitudes,

beliefs and perceptions

that function like a computer program.

So then, a person can say with their 5% of their conscious mind

"I want to be healthy,

I want to be happy, I want to be free"

but the body's on a whole different program.

A habit is a redundant set

of automatic, unconscious,

thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that's acquired through repetition.

So if you think about it, people wake up in the morning

they begin to think about their problems,

those problems are circuits of memories in the brain

each one of those memories are connected to people

and things at certain times and places

and if the brain is a record of the past

the moment they start their day they're already thinking in the past

each one of those memories has an emotion.

Emotions are the end product of past experiences.

So the moment they recall those memories of their problems

they all of a sudden feel unhappy, they feel sad, they feel pain.

Now how you think and how you feel creates your state of being.

So the person's entire state of being

when they start their day is in the past.

So what does that mean? The familiar past

will sooner or later be predictable future.

If you believe that your thoughts have something to do with your destiny

and you can't think greater than how you feel

or feelings have become the means of thinking

by very definition of emotions you're thinking in the past.

And for the most part you're going to keep creating the same life.

So then people grab their cellphone,

they check their WhatsApp, they check their texts,

they check their emails, they check Facebook,

they take a picture of their feet, they post it on Facebook,

they tweet something, they do Instagram,

they check the news

and now they feel really connected to everything that's known in their life.

And then they go through a series of routine behaviors

they get out of bed on the same side,

they go to the toilet, they get a cup of coffee

they take a shower, they get dressed, they drive to work the same way,

they do the same things, they see the same people

they push the same emotional buttons and that becomes...

the routine and it becomes like a program.

So now they've lost their free will

to a program

and there's no unseen hand doing it to them.

So when it comes time to change the redundancy of that cycle

it becomes a subconscious program.

Most people then wait for crisis or trauma or disease or diagnosis,

you know they wait for a loss,

some tragedy to make up their mind to change

and my message is why wait?

And you can learn and change in a state of pain and suffering

or you can learn and change in a state of joy and inspiration.

And I think right now,

the cool thing is that people are waking up.

The moment you start feeling abundant and worthy

you are generating wealth.

The moment you're empowered and feel it

you're beginning to step towards your success.

The moment you start feeling whole

your healing begins

and when you love yourself and you love all of life

you'll create an equal and now you're causing an effect.

And I think that's the difference between living as a victim

and your world saying, "I am this way

because of this person or that thing or this experience

they made me think and feel this way."

When you switch that around

you become a creator of your world and you start saying,

"My thinking and my feeling is changing an outcome in my life"

and now that's a whole different game

and we start believing more that we're creators of reality.

If you're not being defined by a vision of the future

then you're left with the old memories of the past

and you will be predictable in your life.

If you can sit your body down

and tell it to stay like an animal.

"Stay right here, I'm going to feed you when we're done.

You can get up and check your emails, you can do all your texts

but right now, you're going to sit there and obey me."

When you do that properly

and you're not eating anything or smelling anything or tasting anything,

you're not up experiencing and feeling anything

you would have to agree with me that

you're being defined by a thought, right?

So when the body wants to go back to its emotional past

and you become aware that your attention is on that emotion

and where you place your attention is where you place your energy

you're siphoning your energy out of the present moment into the past

and you become aware of that

and you settle your body back down in the present moment

because it's saying, well it's 8 o'clock

you normally get upset because you're in traffic around this time

and here you are sitting and you're used to feeling anger

and you're off schedule.

Oh it's 11 o'clock and you usually check your emails and judge everybody, well

your body is looking for that- that predictable chemical state.

Every time you become aware that you're doing that

and your body is craving those emotions

and you settle it back down into the present moment

you're telling the body

it's no longer the mind,

you're the mind

and now your will is getting greater than the program

and if you keep doing this over and over again,

over and over again, over and over again

just like training a stallion

or a dog, it's just going to say,

"I'm going to sit"

and the moment that happens

and the body is no longer the mind, when it finally surrenders

there's a liberation of energy.

We go from particle to wave, from matter to energy

and we free ourselves from the chains

of those emotions that keep us in the- in the familiar past.

So if you think 60 to 70 thousand thoughts in one day and we do

and 90% of those thoughts are the same thoughts as the day before

and you believe that your thoughts have something to do with your destiny

your life is not going to change very much

because the same thought leads to the same choice,

the same choice leads to the same behavior,

the same behavior creates the same experience,

and the same experience produces the same emotion.

So as you become familiar

with the thoughts, behaviors and the emotions of the old self

you're retiring that old self as you fire and wire new thoughts

and condition the body into a new emotional state

if you do that enough times, it'll begin to become familiar to you.

So, it's so important

just like a garden

if you're planting a garden you've got to get rid of the weeds,

you got to take the plants from the past year

and you've got to pull them out,

the rocks that sift to the top

that are like our emotional blocks they have to be removed

the soil has to be tenderized and broken down,

we have to,

we have to make room to plant a new garden

so primarily, we learn the most about ourselves

and others when we're uncomfortable.

The stronger the emotional reaction

you have to some experience in your life

the more you pay attention to the cause.

And the moment the brain puts all of its attention on the cause

it takes a snapshot

and that's called the memory.

So long-term memories are created

from very highly emotional experiences.

So what happens then is that

people think neurologically within the circuitry of that experience

and they feel chemically within the boundaries of those emotions

and so when you have an emotional reaction to someone or something

most people think that they can't control their emotional reaction.

Well it turns out if you allow that emotional reaction

it's called a refractory period, to last for hours or days

that's called the mood.

You say to someone, "Hey, what's up?" And they say "Well I’m in a mood"

"Well why are you in a mood?" "Well I had this thing happen to me 5 days ago

and I’m having one long emotional reaction."

If you keep that same emotional reaction going on for weeks or months

that's called temperament.

Why is he so bitter? I don't know, let's ask him why is he so bitter.

"Why are you bitter?" "Well...

I had this thing happen to me nine months ago."

And if you keep that same emotional reaction going on for years on end

that's called a personality trait.

And so learning how to shorten your refractory period

of emotional reactions

is really where that work starts.

So then,

people when they have an event

what they do is they keep recalling the event

because the the emotions of stress hormones,

the survival emotions

are saying pay attention to what happened

because you want to be prepared if it happens again.

Turns out most people spend 70% of their life

living in survival and living in stress.

So they're always anticipating

the worst-case scenario based on a past experience

and they're literally,

out of the infinite potentials in the quantum field

they're selecting the worst possible outcome

and they're beginning to emotionally embrace it with fear

and they're conditioning their body into a state of fear.

Do that enough times

body has a panic attack without you

you- you can't even predict it

because it's programmed subconsciously.

The hardest part about change

is not making the same choices you did the day before, period

and the moment you decide to make a different choice

get ready because it's going to feel uncomfortable.

I think that, I think that

the bigger thing is that we- we keep firing and wiring those circuits

they become more hardwired, so they're...

you have a thought and then the program runs

but it's the emotion that follows the thought

if you have, if you have a fearful thought you are going to feel anxiety

the moment you feel anxiety your brains checking in with your body

and saying, "Yeah you're pretty anxious"

so then you start thinking more corresponding thoughts

equal to how you feel.

So the body says, "I want to return back to familiar territory"

so the body starts influencing the mind then it says,

"Start tomorrow,

you're too much like your mother,

you'll never change, this isn't going to work for you

this doesn't feel right."

And so if you respond to that thought

as if it's true

that same thought will lead to the same choice

which will lead to the same behavior which will create the same experience

which produce the same emotion.

When people say to me,

well I can't predict my future

I'm in the unknown, I mean I always say the best way to predict your future

is to create it

not from the known but from the unknown.

What thoughts do you want to fire and wire in your brain?

What behaviours do you want to demonstrate in one day?

The act of rehearsing them mentally

closing your eyes and rehearsing the action.

By closing your eyes and mentally rehearsing some action

if you're truly present

the brain does not know the difference between what you're imaging

and what you're experiencing in the 3D world.

So then you begin to install the neurological hardware in your brain

to look like the event has already occurred.

Now your brain is no longer a record of the past.

Now it's a map to the future

and if you keep doing it, priming it that way

the hardware becomes a software program

and who knows, you just may start acting like a happy person.

And then I think the hardest part

is to teach our body emotionally

what the future will feel like ahead of the actual experience.
