Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself - Dr. Joe Dispenza

This book provides an excellent education on the brain, the physical brain; the mind, the abstract part of it; and how they are connected to our reality (i.e. what we experience). The book is divided into three parts, and the first one is a deep well of extraordinary explanations.

The second and third parts of the book focus more on meditation, repeating many of the concepts presented in part one. To those who understand well about brainwaves and meditation, parts two and three of the book may seem to drag at times and may cause some loss of engagement. If that happens to you, just skip those parts and keep going toward the end. For total beginners in the quantum concept, this book (or parts of it) may be a little difficult to understand right away, but only persistence and continual exploration of the subject will help one grasp the whole concept. Dr. Joe Dispenza has quite a clear and pleasant way to explain things, so, don’t give up! There is a lot to learn in this book, especially for beginners!


“If the quantum model of reality ultimately defines everything as energy, why do we experience ourselves more as physical beings than as beings of energy?”

Dispenza helps us understand, thus be more aware, of our emotions. When we realize that such emotions (especially the negative ones) are the culprit of a dense existence, we are then starting to gather the quantum concept. The next step is to transform our reality into one that’s more complete, enlightened, joyful.

Meditation is of  great value in the whole process, however, I skimmed through the meditation process he recommends on part three, for I have my own system in place and it works well for me. For beginners, though, or for those people who have already tried to meditate and haven’t succeeded yet, I strongly recommend experimenting with Dispenza’s approach. I did purchase the MP3 files with his guided meditations (it’s optional), and they are very good.

Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself is a well-structured and well-edited book (I just found a couple of editing flaws, which is completely acceptable and even expected). Dispenza’s work and the way he conveys the whole idea are brilliant. Finally, the Afterword section in this book beautifully wraps everything in a profound, well-thought, and highly inspiring way.

This book can be a gem for those who want to understand the intricacies of existing and creating different realities from a quantum perspective.
