More Optimism About Our Ability to Change at Any Age
On the Sounds True recording of The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton the author says that if you want to change your life, you have to change your perceptions. Lipton discovered that the environment activates cells, and our perceptions and beliefs mediate between the environment and the cell. His discovery changes the idea that we are victims of our DNA.
The Biology of Belief is a groundbreaking work in the field of New Biology. Author Dr. Bruce Lipton is a former medical school professor and research scientist. 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; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts. Dr. Lipton’s profoundly hopeful synthesis of the latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics is being hailed as a major breakthrough showing that our bodies can be changed as we retrain our thinking. – www.brucelipton.com
Knowledge is not enough. Lipton talks about the implications of his scientific breakthrough in one of his many videos:
How Does This Relate to Therapy
The take away message is that as each human being is a community of cells, which coexist healthfully when in harmony with the environment. So humans do not need to race to the top by collecting the most toys, or through physical might, but can have heaven on earth by living in harmony with ourselves and our environment now.
I find motivation and empowerment in knowing that my perceptions and behaviors are literally influencing my biology. Change is happening anyway, but the more conscious we become of our life stories and how they influence us, the more we are able to return to the realm of possibility that is our birth right.
With a therapeutic alliance in which you establish a mutual feeling of trust, you can make the change you desire, open to new possibilities, and find more joy in your relationships. Positive outcomes are more hopeful than ever!
