<p><b>Best Health Book</b>聽<b>of 2018聽</b>- American Book Fest.<br /><b>Best Science Books of 2018</b> - Bookbub.</p><p>Every creation begins as a thought, from a symphony to a marriage to an ice cream cone to a rocket launch. When we have an intention, a complex chain of events begins in our brains. Thoughts travel as electrical impulses along neural pathways. When neurons fire together they wire together, creating electromagnetic fields. These fields are invisible energy, yet they influence the molecules of matter around us the way a magnet organizes iron filings.</p><p>In <i>Mind to Matter</i>, award-winning researcher Dawson Church explains the science showing how our minds create matter. Different intentions produce different fields and different material creations. The thoughts and energy fields we cultivate in our minds condition the atoms and molecules around us. We can now trace the science behind each link in chain from thought to thing, showing the surprising ways in which our intentions create the material world.聽</p><p>The science in the book is illustrated by many authentic case histories of people who harnessed the extraordinary power of the mind to create. They include:</p><p>鈥?Adeline, whose Stage 4 cancer disappeared after she imagined "healing stars" <br />鈥?Raymond Aaron and two of his clients, each of whom manifested $1 million in the same week<br /> 鈥?Elon Musk, who bounced back from devastating tragedy to found Tesla and SpaceX <br />鈥?Graham Phillips, who grew the emotional regulation part of his brain by 22.8% in two months <br />鈥?Jennifer Graf, whose grandfather鈥檚 long-dead radio came to life to play love songs the day of her wedding <br />鈥?Harold, whose 80% hearing loss reversed in an hour <br />鈥?Joe Marana, whose deceased sister comforted him from beyond the grave <br />鈥?Rick Geggie, whose clogged arteries cleared up the night before cardiac surgery <br />鈥?Matthias Rust, a teen whose "airplane flight for peace" changed the fate of superpowers <br />鈥?Wanda Burch, whose dream about cancer told the surgeon exactly where to look for it <br />鈥?An MIT freshman student who can precipitate sodium crystals with his mind <br />鈥?John, who found himself floating out of his body and returned to find his AIDS healed <br />鈥?Dean, whose cortisol levels dropped by 48% in a single hour</p><p>In <i>Mind to Matter</i>, Dawson Church shows that these outcomes aren鈥檛 a lucky accident only a few people experience. Neuroscientists have measured a specific brain wave formula that is linked to manifestation. This "flow state" can be learned and applied by anyone. New discoveries in epigenetics, neuroscience, electromagnetism, psychology, vibration, and quantum physics connect each step in the process by which mind creates matter. They show that the whole universe is self-organizing, and when our minds are in a state of flow, they coordinate with nature's emergent intelligence to produce synchronous outcomes. The book contained over 150 photos and illustrations that explain the process, while an "Extended Play" section at the end of each chapter provides additional resources. As <i>Mind to Matter</i> drops each piece of the scientific puzzle into place, it leaves us with a profound understanding of the enormous creative potential of our minds. It also gives us a road map to cultivating these remarkable brain states in our daily lives.</p>

<strong>Do you ever wonder what is happening inside your brain when you feel anxious, panicked, and worried? In <em>Rewire Your Anxious Brain</em>, psychologist Catherine Pittman and author Elizabeth Karle offer a unique, evidence-based solution to overcoming anxiety based in cutting-edge neuroscience and research.</strong>聽In the book, you will learn how the amygdala and cortex (both important parts of the brain) are essential players in the neuropsychology of anxiety. The amygdala acts as a primal response, and oftentimes, when this part of the brain processes fear, you may not even understand why you are afraid. By comparison, the cortex is the center of 鈥渨orry.鈥?That is, obsessing, ruminating, and dwelling on things that may or may not happen. In the book, Pittman and Karle make it simple by offering specific examples of how to manage fear by tapping into both of these pathways in the brain.聽As you read, you鈥檒l gain a greater understanding how anxiety is created in the brain, and as a result, you will feel empowered and motivated to overcome it. The brain is a powerful tool, and the more you work to change the way you respond to fear, the more resilient you will become. Using the practical self-assessments and proven-effective techniques in this book, you will learn to literally 鈥渞ewire鈥?the brain processes that lie at the root of your fears.

<div><b>A new theory of how the brain constructs emotions that could revolutionize psychology, health care, the legal system, and our understanding of the human mind</b><br /><br /> Emotions feel automatic, like uncontrollable reactions to things we think and experience. Scientists have long supported this assumption by claiming that emotions are hardwired in the body or the brain. Today, however, the science of emotion is in the midst of a revolution on par with the discovery of relativity in physics and natural selection in biology--and this paradigm shift has far-reaching implications for us all.<br /> 聽聽<br /> Leading the charge is psychologist and neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett, whose theory of emotion is driving a deeper understanding of the mind and brain, and shedding new light on what it means to be human. Her research overturns the widely held belief that emotions are housed in different parts of the brain and are universally expressed and recognized. Instead, she has shown that emotion is constructed in the moment, by core systems that interact across the whole brain, aided by a lifetime of learning. This new theory means that you play a much greater role in your emotional life than you ever thought. Its repercussions are already shaking the foundations not only of psychology but also of medicine, the legal system, child-rearing, meditation, and even airport security.<br /> 聽聽<br /> Why do emotions feel automatic? Does rational thought really control emotion? How does emotion affect disease? How can you make your children more emotionally intelligent? <i>How Emotions Are Made</i>聽answers these questions and many more, revealing the latest research and intriguing practical applications of the new science of emotion, mind, and brain.聽</div>

<b><b>We are profoundly social creatures--more than we know.</b>聽</b> <br /><br />In <i>Social</i>, renowned psychologist Matthew Lieberman explores groundbreaking research in social neuroscience revealing that our need to connect with other people is even more fundamental, more basic, than our need for food or shelter.聽 Because of this, our brain uses its spare time to learn about the social world--other people and our relation to them. It is believed that we must commit 10,000 hours to master a skill.聽 According to Lieberman, each of us has spent 10,000 hours learning to make sense of people and groups <i>by the time we are ten</i>.<br /> 聽<br /> <i>Social</i> argues that our need to reach out to and connect with others is a primary driver behind our behavior.聽 We believe that pain and pleasure alone guide our actions.聽 Yet, new research using fMRI--including a great deal of original research conducted by Lieberman and his UCLA lab--shows that our brains react to social pain and pleasure in much the same way as they do to physical pain and pleasure.聽 Fortunately, the brain has evolved sophisticated mechanisms for securing our place in the social world.聽 We have a unique ability to read other people鈥檚 minds, to figure out their hopes, fears, and motivations, allowing us to effectively coordinate our lives with one another.聽 And our most private sense of who we are is intimately linked to the important people and groups in our lives.聽 This wiring often leads us to restrain our selfish impulses for the greater good.聽 These mechanisms lead to behavior that might seem irrational, but is really just the result of our deep social wiring and necessary for our success as a species.<br /> 聽<br /> Based on the latest cutting edge research, the findings in <i>Social</i> have important real-world implications.聽 Our schools and businesses, for example, attempt to minimalize social distractions.聽 But this is exactly the wrong thing to do to encourage engagement and learning, and literally shuts down the social brain, leaving powerful neuro-cognitive resources untapped.聽 The insights revealed in this pioneering book suggest ways to improve learning in schools, make the workplace more productive, and improve our overall well-being.
