Pathways: What inspired and motivated you to write this book?
Dr. Dispenza: An experience I had 20 years ago inspired me to investigate the power of the brain to alter our life. Much of my spine was crushed in a bike accident, and four surgeons said my only option to avoid paralysis was a type of surgery that would have left me with a permanent disability and possibly, lifelong pain. I had to make the toughest decision of my life, but I turned down the surgery and turned instead to the innate intelligence that constantly gives life to every one of us. Ten weeks later, without surgery, I was back at work, completely healed and pain-free. In the book, I give credit to many factors that contributed to my healing.
Because of that experience, I promised myself to spend a major portion of my life studying the phenomenon of mind over matter and spontaneous healing, meaning how the body repairs itself or rids itself of disease without traditional medical interventions such as surgery or drugs. And so I’ve spent many years studying human potential, our ability to transcend or be greater than our personal limitations, and the interconnectedness of the brain, the mind, the body, and consciousness.
