Haven’t mentioned Dr. Joe in awhile, so since today he seems to be touching on the REALITY subject that I’ve been recently exploring, I’ll list him as a good source of theoretical discourse and experiential training in what it takes to shift your thinking, your energy, and then your life to what you truly want it to be.
I can repeat it over and over ad nauseam, but it is still TRUTH: The energy that you hold, is the energy that you attract; or more specifically in sequence: the focus of your thoughts becomes the context through which you view/frame your life, which then becomes your ‘intention’ locus to where you direct your manifesting energies.
Dr. Joe describes it in terms of ‘your personality determines your personal reality.’ (A bit more catchy phrase.)
“If we can’t stop thinking about our problems, our mind and life will merge. The objective world is colored by the perceptions of our subjective mind – and reality continuously conforms.
We become lost in the illusion of the dream.We could call this a rut, but it goes much deeper than that. Along with our actions, our attitudes and feelings also become repetitive. Eventually, as we become enslaved to our environment, we form the habit – of being ourselves.
To change our lives, we must fundamentally change the ways we think, act, and feel. Because how we think, feel, and behave is – in essence – our personality. And our personality creates our personal reality. So to create a new personal reality – a new life – we must create a new personality. We must become someone else.”

Hmm, …“We must become someone else.” Sounds a bit like reinventing ourselves in a way; or taken more negatively it might sound like we are playing a dramatic role for a staged effect—which is NOT what this is really about at all. If you want genuine life changes, you must make genuine effort toward that change.
Phrase catchiness and ad bites are okay to draw your attention to the main point, but if you take this too flippantly, you might miss the actual substance of it.
Genuine personal change is indeed possible. And yes, you can change your life for the better once you focus your thoughts and energies into doing it, but first know WHY you are doing so. What aspects of your current life are so untenable that you desire a serious life change? Stop and list them on paper for yourself as concrete evidence that your life needs to change for the better. (Journaling is a great tool for self-discovery.)
Increasing our self-awareness is a life-long effort, and it is probably one of the main reasons that we are currently enrolled in this earth-plane training ground.
But another main reason for being here is to learn how to shift your own energies in the direction that you truly wish to head. You are not at the mercy of FATE here. You can set your own life course once you learn to control your thoughts and control your manifesting energies that define your chosen life path.
In general THAT is what Dr. Joe is offering in his books and participatory courses—he’s showing you HOW to shift your thinking to refocus your energies and redirect the course of your life.
I list him only as a resource to consider because he is a proven ‘change maker.’ And I believe in sharing resources in this blog.
