Donna’s Journey of Transformation: Overcoming Struggles with Joe Dispenza’s ‘You’re the Placebo’ 

 July 6, 2024

Donna Swank, author of “Culture Food for Life,” shares her transformative experience with Joe Dispenza’s book “You Are the Placebo.” As a Hay House author, she faced immense pressure while writing her second book, struggling to meet a looming deadline with just six weeks to spare. Overwhelmed by her accelerating business and the demands it brought, Donna decided to retreat to her boat, bringing only her computer and Joe’s book. Within a couple of days of diving into the book, she experienced a remarkable change, accessing a creative part of herself she hadn’t known existed, allowing her to complete her book within a month.

Initially, Donna felt euphoric and immersed in a utopian state while writing. However, upon returning to her everyday life, the positive energy she harnessed began to dissipate, causing disruptions in her relationships and business. In line with Dispenza’s teachings, she realized her energy had become unbalanced, creating a tumultuous period marked by swings between utopia and disaster. This period underscored the necessity of doing the work—meditation and mental training—to stabilize her invigorated state.

Despite being forewarned by Joe about the challenging nature of this work, Donna found herself doubting the necessity until she experienced it firsthand.

Seeking to deepen her understanding and growth, Donna attended one of Joe’s advanced workshops as a self-reward, which she found profoundly enriching.

Reflecting on her journey, Donna expresses deep appreciation for Joe’s influence on her life, which has been markedly positive and empowering.

Donna concludes with heartfelt thanks, crediting Joe’s work with not only aiding in the completion of her book but also significantly enhancing her life.
