Whenever you’ve learned anything new that requires your full attention and committed practice, you probably follow specific steps during your initial instruction. This makes it easier to break down the complexities of the skill or task at hand so that the mind can stay focused without being overwhelmed.

It’s easier to comprehend and execute any new skill when by repetition, you master one small task or procedure at a time and then move on to the next. Over time you string each step together as part of one coordinated process.

I studied music and guitar in my teens and when I would learn a new song I would have to take each step, each bar, and each measure and it needed my undivided attention. How I would execute this on the guitar? At first, it seemed too difficult and my hands would not coordinate what it needed to produce the sound. But after persistent practice, I was able to execute the song prolifically.

I believe it is the same here, building and neural network for meditation is no easy task. The more knowledge you have the better prepared you are for a new experience. What I love here is Dr. Dispenza lays it out in a 4-week program that we can follow, and this chapter is the beginning of that process. I’m excited! I have practiced other meditations and prayers, affirmations, etc. But here what excites me, even more, is that this step-by-step guide will be with me every part of the way.

In some circles, they say it takes a moon cycle to create a new habit or break one it tat a coincidence that Dr. Despneza lays it out for us in this fashion?
