If you read my favorite meditations. You know I like Dr. Joe Dispenza. Since I learned about his work, it made sense for me. For some of my neuroscientist friends, his explanations could be oversimplistic or too bold claims on what meditation can do. But from my own experience meditating over 10 years now, I’ve experienced some things he explains in his books.
As a curious and instigative person, I’m willing to give everything an opportunity before judging it. From trying very woo-woo meditations and teachers to reading the peer review articles and questioning and talking to scientists.
When I started to meditate, it wasn’t mainstream, and I kept it only for myself. During the last 15 years, I’ve seen science back the exercises my meditation teachers taught me before that. If you don’t try it, then you will never know if it’s for you.
Kim Boda and her story motivated me to give this a try
Recently, I interviewed Kim Boda for The Going Forward Podcast, she is the team leader for Joe Dispenza’s workshops and Certified Neurochangesolutions Consultant by Dr. Joe Dispenza and a Certified High-Performance Coach™ by Brendon Buchard.
Kim combines knowledge and her experience following the Real Estate Crash of 2008, where her world was turned upside down. Between 2008 – 2010, she lost everything: her home, her investment property, her vacation home in Palm Springs, her Range Rover, and her savings account. She was under serious stress, depressed, and experiencing anxiety.
That’s when her friend invited her to a book study “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself” by Dr. Joe Dispenza. She started the meditations, which are about rewiring your brain to rid yourself of beliefs that do not serve you, and after 2-3 months of daily meditation, she felt renewed joy, for the first time in years.
You can listen to my episode with Kim here:
Something that caught my attention is that she creates in her meditation and she invites us to stick with the habit of meditation for at least 3 months before seeing any results. I’ve done Dr. Joe’s meditations before but not for 3 months, not even daily for a week.
So, I’m embarking on a journey to meditate with Dr. Joe Dispenza’s 1-hour meditations for 3 months. Even though I meditate regularly, waking up at 5 am to meditate and do one hour every day is not something I do every day. So this is challenging for me.
At the end of this journey, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on Dr. Joe Dispenza’s meditations, and if I feel different as his thousands of testimonials that assure this changed their lives.
