You are the placebo: Making your mind matter

You have no doubt heard stories of people being healed from illness by taking miracle drugs, only to find out later the drugs were “placebos” – or harmless sugar pills.  How, then, were these people healed?  Dr Joe Dispenza explores this phenomenon in his book.

This book goes into fine details on what the human being is capable of. If you are familiar with the power of your mind and thoughts, this book takes you to the next level.

It’s very well explained with diagrams and scientific evidence, which made the concept off “belief” easier to take on board rather than others whereby the authors rarely show the science behind it.

About the book

The book is split into two parts.

Part 1 is Information and Part 2 is Transformation.

Part 1 teaches you all about how the placebo effect works, a bit of history about the subject, how the brain can be tricked into thinking something that’s not actual, how attitudes, beliefs and perceptions can impact on how we behave and see things. It also goes into quantum physics and how it relates to the mind.

Part 2 Is mainly about meditation. How it works, how to do it and what happens with your brain when you do meditation. Some of the pictures above are what happens to your brain when you are meditating.

Towards the end of the book he gives detailed success stories of people who have healed themselves with thought alone.

e.g Someone with Parkinson’s disease cured themselves without a placebo or drug. She is a woman in her 60’s and was diagnosed in 2011. I won’t go into too much detail in case you buy the book then I will spoil it for you.

John who broke his neck in a car accident in 2009 and was told he would never walk again. Well I will leave it up to you to read the story.

These are all real people with true, success stories.

My final thoughts

I have read this book twice now as there is a lot of information to take in. The second time I enjoyed it more than the first. 

It is so detailed with heavy science that it can make for hard reading. I would suggest if you struggle to focus then the audible version would be better suited. The only downfall with that is you won’t get the pictures.

After reading the book you get to realise just how the human body and mind is capable of wonderful things and this book shows how it can be achieved.

An outstanding piece of work by Dr Joe Dispenza. Taking control of your own destiny by thought alone…………Is it possible? Read the book and find out………

Anybody that follows this blog will know I have seen Dr Joe Dispenza live at Edinburgh at a weekend workshop. You can read about my experience here ?
