-- Lynne McTaggart, best-selling author of The Field, The Intention Experiment, and The Bond "Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself is a powerful blend of leading-edge science and real-life applications woven into the perfect formula for everyday living. The hierarchy of scientific knowledge tells us that when new discoveries change what we know about the atom, what we know of ourselves and our brains must change as well. Through the 14 concise chapters of this book, Dr. Joe Dispenza draws upon a lifetime of experience to describe how subtle shifts in the way we use our brains are the quantum key to life-affirming changes in our bodies, our lives, and our relationships. In a responsible, well-researched, and practical manual that you'll want at your fingertips for your personal practice, Dr. Joe's easy-to-use, step-by-step techniques give everyone the opportunity to experiment with their own quantum field to discover for themselves what works best. From the powerful exercises highlighting the thinking that keeps us stuck in old beliefs, to the simple practices that catapult us beyond our limiting beliefs, this book is the owners' manual to a successful life we wish we'd been given in first grade. If you've always known that there's more to you than you learned in Biology 101, but find yourself intimidated by the technical language of science, this is the beautiful book you've been waiting for!"
-- Gregg Braden, New York Times best-selling author of Deep Truth and The Divine Matrix "As a semiretired psychologist who has thought about many of these issues for years, I have to admit that [Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself] will likely change some long-held beliefs in the field of psychology. Dr. Joe's conclusions, which are well grounded in neuroscience, challenge our ideas of who we think we are and what we think is even possible. A brilliant and uplifting book."
-- Dr. Allan Botkin, clinical psychologist; author of Induced After-Death Communication "We're in the midst of an unparalleled new era of personal growth, in which a productive feedback loop has been established between the latest discoveries of neuroscience and the ancient practices of meditation. Dr. Joe Dispenza's new book masterfully yet clearly explains the 'hard science' of how our brains and bodies work. He then applies it practically in a four-week program of fundamental personal change, showing how we can use a structured meditation program to consciously rewire our neural network for creativity and joy."
-- Dawson Church, Ph.D., best-selling author of The Genie in Your Genes "Dr. Joe Dispenza brings us the manual for becoming a divine creator!
