Infecting the Quantum Field

I recently saw a movie called "What The Bleep Do We Know". I highly recommend it. The most often referenced interview in the film is Dr. Joe Dispenza's comments on creating his day. I was moved by his perspective so much I really felt the need to share it with you. The following is the transcript of that part of the interview.

"I wake up in the morning, and I consciously create my day the way I want it to happen. Now, sometimes, because my mind is examining all the things that I need to get done, it takes me a little bit to settle down, and get to the point, of where I'm actually intentionally creating my day. But here's the thing."

"When I create my day, and out of nowhere, little things happen that are so unexplainable, I know that they are the process or the result of my creation. And the more I do that, the more I build a neural net, in my brain, that I accept that that's possible. This gives me the power and the incentive to do it the next day."

"So, if we're consciously designing our destiny from a spiritual standpoint, throwing in the idea that our thoughts can affect our reality or affect our life, because reality equals life. Then, I have this little pact that I have when I create my day."

"I say to myself, I'm taking this time to create my day, and I'm infecting the Quantum Field. Now, if in fact, the observer's watching me the whole time that I'm doing this, and there is a spiritual aspect to myself. Then I ask, show me a sign today, that you paid attention to any one of these things that I created, and bring them in my life in a way that I won't expect." "So, I'm as surprised at my ability to be able to experience these things, and make it so that I have no doubt that its come from you. And so, I live my life, in a sense, all day long, thinking about being the glory and the power of God, or thinking about being Unconditional Love."

"I'll use living as a genius, for example. And as I do that, during parts of the day, I'll have thoughts that are so amazing, that cause a chill in my physical body, that have come from nowhere. But then, I remember that that thought has an associated energy, that's produced an effect in my physical body."

"Now, that's a subjective experience, but the truth is is that I don't think that unless I was creating my day to have unlimited thought, that that thought would come."

(Dr. Joe Dispenza in "What the #$BLEEP*! Do We Know!?")

Joseph Dispenza received his undergraduate training at Rutgers University where he majored in biochemistry. He received his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at Life University. His continuing education has been in neurology, neurophysiology and brain function.

His research has been into unraveling the mysteries of "miraculous healing" within the context of currently accepted science. For the past three years he has traveled the world lecturing on the close relationship between brain chemistry and physical health. His forthcoming book is on the subject of genetics, molecules of emotion, neuroscience brain anatomy and physiology.


Lose Weight, Keep It Off - slower is better - here's why

“Losing three to five pounds per month is the maximum you should aim for.”

The battle to lose excess inches and pounds of unwanted body fat is a common one. An estimated ten million Americans are currently on some form of weight-reduction program. Unfortunately, the success rate for any diet is ultimately an abysmally low eight percent. What's wrong? Plenty. We jump from one diet to the next; we expect instant results; we have unrealistic expectations. The good news is that with patience and determination, it's not that difficult to lose weight and keep it off. The key principles are:

Set reachable goals. Losing three to five pounds per month is the maximum you should aim for. Taking weight off at this conservative rate means that the weight is much more likely to stay off.

Exercise. There's just no way around it. If you want your diet to work, you're going to have to do some work, too. You could easily lose three to five pounds per month by cutting back slightly on what you eat while burning an extra two hundred calories each day in some form of physical activity. That's about a half-hour doing a brisk walk or a session on your stairclimber or treadmill.

Eat a balanced diet. Balance your meals from among the five food groups - these are fruit, vegetable, grain, dairy, and meat. Don't try to cut corners by skipping meals. Instead, plan your menu so you get three balanced meals each day that are low in fat and calories. As a general guideline, reduce the total amount of fat in your diet to no more than 30 percent of total calories consumed daily. Caution: some low- and no-fat foods are high in carbohydrates. Carbos have a way of adding up quickly - especially when you're scarfing down fat-free baked goods. Wherever possible, check the nutrition labels of the foods you consume.

Exercise some more. Half an hour three days per week is the minimum time recommended for exercise. But more is definitely better. A recent study from Brown University found that 2,500 people who lost an average of 60 pounds - and kept it off for a year - did so by exercising for about an hour per session.

Stick with it. Even if you don't seem to be making progress at first, keep working out for at least one half-hour a day. You may not be able to achieve your ideal body weight initially, but you can achieve an optimal level of fitness, which has many health benefits. And remember, more important than your performance on any given day is your stick-to-it-iveness. The key to obtaining these health benefits lies in the consistency - not the intensity - of the exercise.

Set a simple target. Your goal for weight loss should be to burn a minimum of 1,500 calories a week. Do it while exercising at your own pace and duration. And remember, when it comes to weight loss, slow and steady is the way to go. Be patient with yourself and the changes you're making in your life. Over a period of months, you will not only feel better, but look better, too.

Drinking 64 ounces of water everyday can help weight loss as well. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder. Now, start splashing.


Honor Yourself

"I’d gone through life believing in the strength and competence of others; never in my own. Now, dazzled, I discovered that my capacities were real. It was like finding a fortune in the lining of an old coat."

-- Joan Mills

Take a moment to stop and think about what you give to the people and life around you. Don’t think about what you’re not doing right. Look instead at all you do that is a blessing.

Many of us continually beat ourselves up for not doing or being enough. But imagine for a moment that you are great just as you are. Feel the relief this brings! Now open to the possibility that this is not a daydream. It’s true! Believe it!

"People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success."

-- Norman Vincent Peale

"We cannot rise higher than our thought of ourselves."

-- Orison Swett Marden
