“The Biology of Belief” BRUCE H. LIPTON, PH.D.
This is a book that needs to be red.
This is a book that really shifts the way we understand the world. Everything in the universe is connected and Newton-like science has proven to leave so many doors opened that it can not be taken as final truth.
I think we all have heard about the placebo effect. But do we really understand what it is. It is healing with our beliefs. That`s it. If we believe a drug is going to get us well, it will. But as much there exists placebo effect there is also a nocebo effect. Negative thinking creates negative experience.
I think it always helps when our intuition is proven by science. And this is what this book is all about.
Dr. Bruce Lipton is an American developmental biologist best known for promoting the idea that gene expression can be influenced (via epigenetics) by environmental factors, people have a greater impact on their health than genetic research has previously determined.
His experiments, and that of other leading-edge scientists, have examined in great detail the processes by which cells receive information. The implications of this research radically change our understanding of life. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology. Instead, DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts.
In this book he explains why just believing and saying positive affirmations won`t probably make any positive change. We need to have access to our subconscious mind.
In early age, when a child`s consciousness has not yet developed entirely to understand it`s parents critical comments about themselves and know that those sayings were just a figure of speech and not description of child`s “me”. When those negative comments get recorded in subconscious mind those will become “truths” that begin to have impact in the future life of that child.
When we become older higher frequencies will occure in the brain and we become less influenced by outside programming.
So we have two sources that form our subconscious mind – genetically programmed instincts and acquired beliefs from our parents. Those two actually ruin all of our positive thinking.
Again and again we try to conquer our subconscious mind and get faced by obstacles and stop. Those attempts can even be harmful if done too intensively. Energy psychology is something to look for when there is a need for reprogramming.
In this book Dr. Bruce Lipton described absolutely wonderfully how to grow a child who wouldn`t need reprogramming in the future. This is a biggest gift anyone could make for their kids. Prenatal time should also be taken into consideration. Before conceiving a sparkle should be in the parents eyes. The thoughts and feelings of both parents are very important, during and before pregnancy.
Most of our gynecologists during the prenatal time only care about what the mother is eating, is she taking vitamins and is being active enough. But shouldn`t they be asking what are the women thinking and feeling? The child is born to a world that it`s mother believes in.
We, humans, have the ability to take our lives into our responsibility. We can create the world we desire. We can consciously start to understand from where our behavior is coming and change it. But change it in harmony with yourself. And the good news is that more and more the science is supporting that mindset.
