“Meditation opens the doors between the conscious and subconscious minds. We meditate to enter the operating system of the subconscious, where all of those unwanted habits and behaviours reside, and change them to more productive modes to support us in our lives.”

– Dr. Joe Dispenza


In his book, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, Dr. Joe Dispenza added a few meditations you can buy from his website or record yourself. Below you will find the first part of the 4-step meditation. Each month Funga will add the following step. It is essential to familiarise yourself thoroughly with each step. Magic is waiting on the other side because you start becoming the person you genuinely want to show up as in this world today. To break the habit of being yourself, you have to change your subconscious thoughts. You can finally start making changes to improve your life by better understanding yourself.

Dr. Joe goes into quantum physics to make the point that “your consciousness (mind) has effects on energy (matter) because your consciousness is energy and energy has consciousness. You are powerful enough to influence matter because at the most elementary level, you are energy with a consciousness. To change your life is to change your energy – to make an elemental change in your mind and emotions.” You can do so through meditation by entering the “quantum field where all opportunities exist.”


Joe Dispenza’s recipe for changing might be summarized in 3 steps:

  • Become self-aware: to first change, you need to know how you are today. You need to know how you feel, what pushes your buttons, and what gets you in negative loops.
  • Create new alternatives: once you know the real you, picture the new you that you want to become.
  • Emotionalize your thoughts: make the thoughts of the new you as real as possible by adding emotions to your thoughts.

The central tenet is that you cannot change only with thoughts or only with feelings, but you need both. To access the quantum field, your meditation must have both heat and mind, feelings and thoughts.

When you get from the meditation feeling differently than before you sat down, it means that you are changing and that it’s working. Once you think and feel differently, you will do and act differently, eventually becoming that new person. You are in a new state of being, a new personality. And a new personality produces a new personal reality. (summary taken from here)


Week 1 – Summary of the Water-Rising Induction as written in Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: 

One of the techniques that hypnosis experts use to get individuals into a so-called trance is called induction. Simply put, we teach people how to change their brain waves. All someone has to do in order to be hypnotised or to hypnotise him – or herself is to move down from high- or mid-range Beta waves into a more relaxed Alpha or Theta state. Thus, meditation and self-hypnosis are similar. INDUCTION is a step you will include during the session – in fact, it must be the first step you master, and it will lead off every session. After you have mastered this, you will be perfectly primed and able to complete all steps in the process that follows over the next three chapters.

Specifically, you will focus on the location or orientation of your body in space. For example, think about the location of your head, starting at its top and gradually moving down. As the induction progresses from body part to body part, sense and become aware of the space that each occupies.

Next, become aware if the teardrop-shaped area surrounding your body, and the space it takes up. When you can sense that area of space around your body, your attention now is no longer on your body.

Finally, become aware of the area that the room you are in occupies in space. Sense the volume that it fills. When you reach this point, this is when the brain begins to change its disorderly wave patterns to more balanced and orderly ones.
