Wayne Dyer Books In Chronological Order
1. ENLIGHTENMENT THROUGH SUFFERING On the first path of your journey, you learn through a process I call enlightenment through suffering. At this time of life, which has nothing to do with chronological age, you ask, Why me? when something occurs that is painful or difficult. If it involves, for instance, the unwanted breakup of a relationship, you spend your present moments suffering and wondering how and why such a disaster could have befallen you. After a while, as you recover, you are able to look back and say, Now I know why I had to go through that breakup, and you see, with the benefit of hindsight and suffering, that it allowed you to move on to another life experience of great value. From the perspective of looking backward, you realize that you had to experience the pain in order to transcend it.
Wayne Dyer Books In Chronological Order
-- An educational &\nexhaustive look at how the Placebo Effect can transform our lives -- In Dr. Dispenza\u2019s newest book, \"You are the\nPlacebo\" we are provided with the life-affirming knowledge that our\nthoughts and expectations can transform our lives by helping us overcome\nillness, disease, and numerous other afflictions that limit our ability to enjoy\nlife to the fullest. I do not read medical journals, so I can\u2019t make this\nstatement with certainty; however, I would suggest that this book is likely one\nof the most up-to-date and exhaustive works on the Placebo Effect available\ntoday. Furthermore, for those that do not enjoy overly technical books, I\nwould say that in spite of the fact that the nature of this book requires\nmedical and scientific terminology to be used, this is still a very readable\nbook. In my own words, in very simple terms, I see the essence of\nthe placebo effect as: mind over matter. Our minds have the power to overcome\ndisease, depression and a vast number of negative situations that manifest in\nour body. Our thoughts, combined with expectation, can remedy heart disease\n& cancer, reduce pain, and even simulate the benefits of an actual\noperation. Perhaps it sounds too good to be true; however, the placebo effect\nhas been rigorously studied throughout history and continues to\nfascinate/confound scientists to this day. In order to better acquaint the reader with the workings of\nthe Placebo Effect, Dr. Dispenza uses the first part of the book to recount\nnumerous scientific studies that illustrate how our minds can physically change\nour bodies, simply through what we think and what we expect. A doctor using\nsaline water as a replacement for morphine in the late stages of the war,\npeople suffering from depression feeling uplifted by simple sugar pills, even\npatients who underwent simulated knee surgery feeling less pain and being able\nto walk properly again \u2013 all the result of the a placebo being used. There is also the negative side of the placebo, referred to\nas the nocebo, wherein a person believes that they are ill, will die, or that\nthey are suffering from the ill intentions of another person. For example, in\nsome cultures where people believe in the ability for a person to be \u201ccursed\u201d\nby a witch doctor, there is the potential for negative beliefs and expectations\nto due substantial harm. The \u201ccurse\u201d thought is implanted in the mind of the individual\nwho then believes in the \u201ccurse\u201d, which then eventually manifests in physical\nform. People have been admitted to hospital and, even under medical\nsupervision, with no detectible illness, have died because of their negative\nexpectations and beliefs. After the initial discussion and the sharing of the\nscientific research on the placebo effect, Dr. Dispenza goes on to the most\nimportant part of the book: how we can make use of the placebo in our personal\nlives. By providing actual, coloured, brain scans and EEG scans Dr.\nDispenza illustrates that by altering our thoughts and beliefs we actually\nalter our physical bodies. This part of the book is very detailed and a cursory\ndiscussion would not do it justice, but I think this quote from the book will emphasize\nthe essence of what is being said, \u201c\u2026we direct the formation of new neural\npathways and the destruction of old ones through the quality of the experiences\nwe cultivate\u2026The goal here is to change our beliefs and perceptions about your\nlife at a biological level so that you are, in essence, loving a new future\ninto concrete material existence.\u201d This then leads into the final portion of the book wherein\nDr. Dispenza provides information on a meditation that will assist us in making\nuse of the placebo effect. With over 300 pages in this book, there is certainly a lot\nof detail and information for anyone simply interested in learning more about\nthe placebo effect. More importantly though, if one truly grasps the essence of\nwhat is being shared, that our thoughts and beliefs have a vast potential to\nheal or harm us, then a person becomes empowered and they can then more\nconsciously create a life in line with their desires. In a very real, physical\nsense, the placebo effect proves that we can change our reality with our\nthoughts and expectations: what information could be more empowering than that?\n ** While this book can be read independently of Dr.\nDispenza\u2019s previous book, \"Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself\" I\nwould suggest that reading it prior to, \"You are the Placebo\" would\nbe worthwhile.**"},"image":"url":" Are the Placebo_ Making Your Mind Matter.jpg","imageType":"webs","align":"left","width":110,"height":158,"imageWidth":100,"frame":"default","link":null,"caption":"image","inBucket":false,"changeCallback":null,"frameColor":"ffffff","top":0,"left":0,"imageHeight":159,"webs":"fileId":375403311,"path":"You Are the Placebo_ Making Your Mind Matter.jpg","linkInfo":"tab":"webpage","url":" -you-are-the-placebo?from_search=true","newWindow":false,"_id":"5489c9ea6daaa5c443025b1b","_captchaPublicKey":"6Le3aDEUAAAAAMNRsdkVVxpJA05exOZVTuLEqM5u","_renderCaptcha":true,"_site":"id":111835964}, container: $('#webs-bin-5489c9ea6daaa5c443025b1b > .webs-bin-wrap > .webs-container')}).done(function(m)m.oneLoaded();deferredLoad.resolve(););});});require(['jquery'], function($)var deferredLoad = $.Deferred();webs.renderedModulesPromises.push(deferredLoad.promise());require(['internal/sitebuilder/common/ModuleClassLoader'], function(mcl)mcl.create('horizontal_rule', data: "width":"100%","margin":1,"position":"center","_style":"light-7","_id":"525039800cf2ab50c431893b","_captchaPublicKey":"6Le3aDEUAAAAAMNRsdkVVxpJA05exOZVTuLEqM5u","_renderCaptcha":true,"_site":"id":111835964, container: $('#webs-bin-525039800cf2ab50c431893b > .webs-bin-wrap > .webs-container')).done(function(m)m.oneLoaded();deferredLoad.resolve(););););Dying To Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing - Anita MoorjaniISBN-13: 978-1401937515 From the outset I want to say that I read this book severalmonths ago and shortly thereafter I lent it out to someone who had just beendiagnosed with cancer. This means that I do not have the book in front of mewhile doing this review and I will just rely on my memory and share what werethe most significant aspects of the book to the best of my recollection.
