My father instilled in me a love for books and before he passed away at 92, this was his favorite one. We would read it separately during the day and discuss on our nightly Facetime calls. Being a pharmacologist, Dad loved the breakdowns of how the brain works. And I, who have long been interested in why we do the things we do, was completely drawn to the idea that we could retrain our brain. Consider this book a science-based version of “The Secret” and so much more. And had I known about manifesting when I first came to this…

We are all running an internal program holding us back from being fully who we were born to be, less socially conditioned by our gender, race, religious background, etc. In this book, Dr. Joe Dispenza brings light to how we can use meditation to unleash some of our unconscious programs and go on the journey of becoming more of you, less who you might have thought you have to be, to fall deeply in love with your life. 

From Runa's list on unleashing your highest potential.

This is a groundbreaking book on the power of your mind, thoughts, and habits. It is rich in scientific studies that illustrate what we know about why and how we do what we do. I personally had a huge shift in my understanding of the science of well-being and achievement. It moved me significantly to realize and learn about the innovations in manifesting the life you desire. This is one serious and ironically light-hearted journey of self-discovery.

I picked this book at a time I wanted to reboot my own brain. For years, I’ve been obsessed with the question of breaking patterns. The fact is that we tend to put ourselves in similar situations to the ones in which we grow up. Those who suffered abuse or abandonment go from being a victim as a child to being a victim as an adult too. But there is no fatality. We can learn to change our deep beliefs and transform our reality. Joe Dispenza’s approach revolves around quantum physics applied to the mind, and transcendental meditations to rewire…
