This book is literally called a desktop book by some readers. You can turn to it in those difficult moments when the difficulties of life hang over a person, and it seems that there is only uncertainty and emptiness ahead. This book can help to gather strength, a person understands that everything is in his hands. A brief overview of "Change Lives in 4 Weeks" by Joe Dispenza is presented in this article.
Human nature is such that it does not allow a person to decide on changes until things get really bad. Only extreme conditions, such as crisis, loss, trauma, pain, can make a person stop and think about what he does, how he lives and what he strives for. The main question is: so why wait for extreme states, when there will be no turning back? Why not start early?
The entire material world is formed by subatomic particles. Surely many have heard offamous experiment with an electron and two slits, where it was clearly proved that an electron can behave both as a wave and as a particle. The nature of electrons is such that as long as they are not looked at (i.e., there is no observer), they are pure potential, being in a wave state. If a person can change the material world with one glance (an electron under observation begins to behave like a law-abiding particle), then this may mean that all desires that a person can only imagine are real in the quantum field of probabilities. They are waiting for their observer to appear.
This thesis is reminiscent of the ideas of V. Zeland from the book "Reality Transurfing", where the idea of Dispenza is explained in slightly different words.
All objects of the material world are capable of radiating energy, and energy, in turn, contains some information. By changing his mental state, a person can change the characteristics of his radiation.
In order to change your own brain, you need to get new experience and seek insights in order to wean yourself from the ordinary, the present. Information received by intelligent beings throughout life in the form of knowledge, feelings and emotions is stored in the brain, turning into synaptic connections. Certain environments and events that affect a person give rise to thoughts that activate neural connections already embedded in the brain. These neural connections just reflect previous experience. Thus, argues Joe Dispenza, in realityonly those events can materialize that our thinking is capable of reproducing. That is, nothing new will happen in life if a person "thinks with old thoughts", does the same as always, and also experiences the same emotions.
Quantum field and feelings
In interviews and autobiographies, many well-known people in science, politics, economics and society say that they always had a clear image of their future in their thoughts. Pictures of their success already existed in the quantum field, and these people convinced themselves of the reality of the planned future so much that they lived as if their dreams had already come true.
There is nothing wrong with old thoughts and emotions, but the constant scrolling and revival in the memory of old events and experiences leads to the fact that a person does not have "room" in order to get new impressions, Joe Dispenza is sure.
Here and now
In fact, people are often not in the present. For example, a person goes to work. How can he be anywhere else? Physically, he is indeed right here, but mentally, he is somewhere far away. He thinks back to a trip to the lake last week, and then thinks that if he is late, he will be reprimanded by his boss. So it turns out that in fact a person is anywhere, but not in the present. The state of "here and now" is very important in order to immerse yourself in the moment and be able to move in time and space. This will help to realize any potentials, because there are no potentials in the past, it has happened.
When a person tries to change his life, the mind and body begin to resist. With the mind, you can still try to "negotiate", but in the case of the body, the matter is much more complicated. It is enough to remember how many times each of us tried to start a he althy lifestyle right from next Monday: run in the morning, go to the gym regularly, eat right. The body usually resists. With the mind, a person understands that this cake should be abandoned, but the body has already formed an addiction to sugar! Narcologists say that this addiction is comparable in strength to a drug one.
In any addiction, the body and mind change places, says Joe in his book "The Power of the Subconscious, or How to Change Your Life in 4 Weeks." That is, the body is to some extent able to think for you. Thought creates a memory, and it causes certain emotions. After some time, the thought turns into a memory and later automatically reproduces the emotion encoded in itself. With repeated repetition, these three components (thought, memories and emotions) merge. This is how emotions are learned. When we experience a learned emotion, we usually cannot trace its "roots". So we live "on the machine".
In How to Change Your Life in 4 Weeks, Joe Dispenza claims to stop living"on the machine" is possible only by learning to overcome emotional addictions. As soon as the addiction is overcome, the force that previously triggered this automatic program disappears, which means that the "I" changes. Learned emotions that have penetrated deep into the subconscious literally become part of a person, part of his character and personality. But these are just programs that really have nothing to do with our personality. You can compare it to apps installed on a smartphone.
Mood, according to Joe Dispenza, is a manifestation of short-term chemical states, as well as a lingering emotional reaction. And this means that a person can change his mood if he changes his thoughts.
How to change your life?
First of all, according to Dispenza, you need to work on your thoughts and feelings, and then try out a new pattern of behavior. New behavior will help to get new experience and experience new emotions. Over time, they will replace the old ones. Thus, a person can remove all unnecessary memorized programs, and instead of them leave new and useful ones. If you consciously approach this process, the brain and body will become one and cease to conflict, the author of the book is sure.
It's worth starting with building your happy image in your mind. To do this, you need to think about what you lack for complete satisfaction and happiness, for a life in harmony with yourself. You need to formulate what you would like to add or remove if you were making a new, improved version of yourself.
The book "The Power of the Subconscious, or How to Change Your Life in 4 Weeks" says that addiction states are formed if a person believes in the possibility of getting rid of internal discomfort through the use of any external factors. That is, a person can start chasing pleasure (drugs, food, computer games, alcohol), hoping that this will help him avoid painful and unpleasant emotions. However, he avoids the idea that external pleasures cannot last forever and be unlimited, they will always want more and more. In the absence of external pleasures, the path to happiness and satisfaction will lengthen exactly as long as a person tried to escape from himself. True happiness, according to Dispenza, is not external pleasure, because dependence on any factors only distances us from true happiness. It should be sought not outside, but within yourself.
Mindfulness and Meditation
Mindfulness Joe Dispenza calls the process when a person notices certain thoughts and feelings, and then simply moves on. That is, there is no assessment of what is happening, the person does not think about the reasons, does not accumulate criticism or anger, but simply notes and moves on.
Also Joe Dispenza offers in this book to change your life in 4 weeks through meditation. They are described in detail in the publication. The main ones are two: "Parts of the body" and "Arriving water". This stage lasts the first week, and in the second weekanother stage begins - the process of weaning from oneself. Here the techniques of recognition, recognition and ascertaining are used. For each week, the author offers his meditation practice.
Fixing new qualities
According to Joe Dispenza, it takes seven to nine weeks for the formation and consolidation of new character traits. At the end of each day, you need to take stock, asking yourself questions about whether today's tasks were successfully completed, whether there were breakdowns, and if so, why. It is also necessary to ask yourself under what circumstances and under what conditions old learned reactions appeared, and when these reactions arose so quickly that they could not be analyzed and interrupted. You should definitely ask yourself the question of what can be done to avoid such disruptions in the future.
Judging by the reviews, "Change Your Life in 4 Weeks" can be recommended for self-study, as it describes various practices that you need not just to read, but to work on. Only in this way the information that the author wanted to convey will be useful. Everyone who diligently performed the meditation and other practices presented in the books note that their lives have become more conscious.

The first volume of the trilogy about the Siberian outback glorified the name of Alexei Cherkasov throughout the world. He was inspired to write the book by an incredible story: in 1941, the author received a letter written with the letters "yat", "fita", "izhitsa" from a 136-year-old resident of Siberia. Her memoirs formed the basis of Alexei Cherkasov's novel "Hop", which tells about the inhabitants of the Old Believer settlement, hiding in the depths of the taiga from prying eyes
