Joe Dispenza, D. C has written a challenging book that explores the new discoveries in brain studies. Where we once thought that a damaged or addicted brain was permanently affected, his and others who are studying the brain with the newest technologies are finding that isn’t always so. This opens up all kinds of possibilities for growth and change that have exciting potential. The subtitle is: The Science of Changing Your Mind. This work will change a lot of things for a lot of people. Here is a quote from pages 1-2. Triggered by your most recent thought, did you know that suddenly, your pancreas and your adrenal glands are already busy secreting a few new hormone?. Like a sudden lightning storm, different areas of your brain just surged with increased electrical current, releasing a mob of neurochemicals that are too numerous to name. Your spleen and your thymus gland sent out a mass e-mail to your immune system to make a few modifications. Several different gastric juices started flowing. Your liver began processing enzymes that were not present moments before. Your heart rate fluctuated, our lungs altered their stroke volume, and blood flow to the capillaries in your hands and feet changes. All from just thinking one thought. You are that powerful. Explore the rest of the book for a whole lot more.
Alva Noe, a neurologist, in his book Out of Our Heads, takes us into new territory in the discussion of where consciousness resides. He challenges the concept that it is in the brain. The subtitle: “Why you are not your brain and other lessons from the biology of consciousness” pretty much explains his thesis.
