DR JOE DISPENZA – THE MIND BODY CONNECTION
In 1986 Dr Joe Dispenza compacted his spine in a bike accident that changed his life forever. At first he tried to come into terms with the fact that he might spend the rest of his life in a wheel chair. With six broken vertebrae and a compressed spinal chord plus a T8 compressed over 60%, he would need Harrington Rode Surgery where they would attache steel rods to the vertebrae.
Laying face down Joe decided to try to give his consciousness a template to heal. After six and half weeks of absolute hell, he couldn’t get his mind to concentrate on his template and design. He would drift off on tangents, thinking about how he was going to live in a wheelchair, asking himself if he should he sell his home and his practice. He then realised that he kept concentrating and focusing on what HE DIDN’T WANT TO HAPPEN instead of WHAT HE DID WANT TO HAPPEN. He realised that his survival instincts were making him concentrate on just surviving and what he would do if the worst happened.
After about six and a half weeks he felt like he hit a tennis ball right in the sweet spot, and he was able to fully focus on his template, something clicked and all of a sudden his body started to respond to his mind. Soon what would take him 3-4 hours to do would now take him 45 minutes and his body started to rapidly heal. He was back on his feet in 10 weeks and back training after 12 weeks.
The doctors where absolutely clear that he would not walk again and that he had a head injury that caused him not to even be able to think clearly enough to make serious life altering choices. He thought, well he was going to be in a wheel chair then he would at least give this mind over matter thing a good shot. He was told that he if didn’t have the surgery he would be in a full body cast for 6 months to a year, when he returned back to the doctors they were blown away by his progress. During that time Joe made a deal with himself, that if he was ever able to walk again he would spend the rest of his life studying the Mind Body Connector.
