Becoming Supernatural: How Common People Are Doing The Uncommon

Dr. Joe Dispenza

Why This Book?

KINRGY’s philosophy aligns seamlessly with Dr. Joe Dispenza’s work with how our thoughts and emotions play a massive role in our physical, mental and energetic health. Similar to our KINRGY trifecta of Movement, Breath and Imagination, Becoming Supernatural explores how to shift your perspective through mindfulness practices in order to transform your mind, body and energy.

Journal Prompts:

Chapters 1-3: If you could expand beyond your body, your environment, time, and into the quantum realm… what would you manifest knowing ANYTHING is possible?

Chapters 4-6: After completing the energy centers meditation, what have you noticed about each center? What are some of the ways you are working toward reconditioning the body to a new mind?  

Chapters 7-9: Now that we understand the link between the heart and the brain, what are some practices you are committed to doing that will cultivate elevated emotions and connect you to your future?

Chapters 10-12: If you were to intentionally activate your senses and connect in a deeper way to your emotions regularly, what positive impact could you have on your future?

Chapters 13-14: What are some of the ways you are contributing to the different extremes? What was your biggest takeaway from Becoming Supernatural?

A New Earth

By Ekhart Tolle

Why This Book?

KINRGY’s philosophy is to connect to self so that we can relate to others from an authentic place of compassion and experience the world with love. A New Earth by Ekhart Tolle focuses on all aspects of the human ego and how we can work to transcend it to live authentically, cultivate compassion and achieve true fulfillment in life. 

Journal Prompts:

Chapter 1: Tolle points out that it is when we are faced with a radical crisis that we are forced as a species to transform ourselves. With all that we have experienced in the past year, what are some of your personal trials that have led to transformation?

Chapter 2: “Body awareness not only anchors you in the present moment, it is a doorway out of the prison that is the ego” (44). Try harnessing your essence identity vs. your egoic mind through practicing “inner body” awareness.  Listen in conversation, pay attention to your life force energy or simply be with yourself in stillness. What truths can you uncover?

Chapter 3: “Awareness is the power that is concealed within the present moment” (78). Practice your awareness by asking yourself the following question and recording your observations: “Can I sense my essential identity as consciousness itself? Or am I losing myself in what happens, losing myself in the mind, in the world?” (79) 

Chapter 4: Tolle describes the ego as pathological, meaning it feeds itself by creating and maintaining suffering. Reflect on any negative emotions you may have experienced recently and ask yourself: Am I indulging in these negative emotions only to serve my ego? If so, how can I practice radical honesty and shift my perception of my reality?

Chapter 5: We tend to feed our “pain bodies” by attaching to negative thoughts and emotions and reliving negative memories or “old stories” from the past. What old stories are you holding onto? Take some time to reflect, release and renew the stories you tell yourself to diminish your pain body.

Chapter 6: Tolle talks about “triggers” which are situations that relate to emotional pain that occurred in the past. Reflect on what some of your triggers are to increase your awareness on when they show up in your life. Come up with a few mantras that will help you center yourself in the present moment amidst your triggers.

Chapter 7: Tolle shares that when we refrain from judging events in our lives as good versus bad and instead remain open, we can fully embrace the interconnectedness that is the nature of life. Think of a past event in your life that you have judged in your mind as “bad.” Practice reframing this event without judgement and reflecting on lessons you’ve learned to release any emotions you may still be holding.

Chapter 8: Tolle discusses the benefits of stillness, and points out that it has been described as the language of God. When was the last time you paused and took a moment of stillness for yourself? Practice finding stillness through meditation. Simply sit with yourself and breathe into the space between.

Chapter 9: Your life has inner and outer purpose. Your inner purpose is primary and involves being, while your outer purpose is secondary and involves doing. We as humans are constantly finding the delicate balance between being and doing. Reflect on your personal balance between being and doing in your life. Where can you surrender, and where can you take action?

Chapter 10: We often have the misperception that joy comes from what you do in the world. However, joy only comes from “awakened doing” – when your outer and inner purpose are aligned – where what you do in the world directly reflects the truth of who you are inside. What are some choices you can make to more consciously align your outer actions with the inner truth of who you are?
