…they become your cells, tissues, and organs. There’s no supplement, no diet, no medicine, and no exercise regimen that can compare with the power of your thoughts and beliefs.” Dr Bruce Lipton
What I learned in two hours with Dr Bruce Lipton that could change your life!
I had the great privilege of meeting Dr Bruce Lipton (call him Bruce he tells me), warmly shake hands and be entertained and educated by his presentation, ‘Conscious Evolution: Thriving Through Evolutionary Chaos’ last Saturday. I am grateful for that special moment being with one of our inspirations.
I shared with him how I first heard his name while at iLab in Bali through a good friend in 2016 and have been learning more about his work and why we had to be here this moment. I tried to get him to autograph his book, The Biology of Belief and take a photo together but instead, he took my address so he could send me his latest book. I know we will meet again!
“Every thought we think is creating our future.” Louise Hay
It was first through Louise Hay that I learned of a new paradigm in healing in 1993 that I believe to be true for me. It’s a story I’d love to share sometime later because I know it can help you.
It was Dr Bruce Lipton that provided the ‘science’ supporting her work over 20 years later! Bruce brought Consciousness, Evolution, Biology and Indigenous cultures together in a fascinating, humorous and ‘spiritual’ way resulting in a new perspective on Humanity and Healing, something I’ll attempt to synthesize and share here.
“You’ll See It When You Believe It.” Wayne Dyer
three life changing takeaways
- Believe in that WE hold the key to a better world.
Bruce and his colleagues (you may have heard of Gregg Braden, Dr Joe Dispenza & Lynne McTaggart) bring mind-body medicine and spiritual principles creating this ‘New Science and Spirituality’. But it was through Dr Wayne Dyer and Louise Hay that I first learned that we hold to key to heal ourselves and even the planet. Bruce brings it to another level of understanding!
Through showing us a ‘Spiritual & Material’ evolutionary timeline, we learned that our society went through a very long process (more like a rollercoaster on the graph) from Monotheism to Newtonian physics to Quantum physics. Could the belief systems of our times be referring to the same thing? Could the field of energy (physics) and Spirit be the same? Believe it!
In short, the key is that indeed our belief system, thoughts and conscience can change our biology. This is called Epigenetics as Dr Bruce Lipton describes. We can change our genetic expression, we are NOT victims of our genetics! That’s huge for us engaged with healing and coaching!
“The new physics provides a modern version of ancient spirituality. In a universe made out of energy, everything is entangled; everything is one.” Dr Bruce Lipton
- Seek the truth in all things.
Our educational system, our healthcare system our financial system and many other systems all have hidden the truth on so many levels, it makes it almost impossible to know what the truth is. Bruce shared his over 30 years of experience, frustration and breakthroughs with the medical system why we must be mindful.
For example, many people believe that Darwinism and Survival of the fittest to be the truth (check out Jean-Baptiste Lamarck’s story, if you can). It frames our culture in every way from our own personal belief system to how businesses and societies behave. Many believe we are here to dominate Nature, that competition is best for survival and that our genes dictate how we live and die. Dig deeper and seek the truth!
“We will be known forever by the tracks we leave.” Dakota
- Care for ALL life
In a similar way, our belief system, thoughts and conscience can also change our planet. Dr Lipton passionately expressed the urgency of the 6th extinction, something we are actually experiencing this very moment but who really knows or cares?
For example, ‘on average, we’ve seen an astonishing 60% decline in the size of populations of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians in just over 40 years, according to WWF’s Living Planet Report 2018.‘ Extinction is just one part of the perfect storm!
Stress is not only something humans experience but also our planet, all animal species and our biosphere! We already know that stress is the major cause of many illnesses (especially insomnia).
Think the planet is not our concern? What good is healing if we destroy the world we live in? Bruce believes that we have lost the connection to our Earth and that the Native Americans and First Nations people (in North America) can teach us how to reconnect ‘living with a garden’, something I’ve been close to for many years (remember Avatar?).
Why is this important? If we really care about helping others heal, start with changing our thoughts, our belief systems and touch the Earth gently. We are all connected. This, not just the millennials challenge, it’s everyone’s challenge as Culture Creatives as Dr Bruce Lipton calls us. WE are the new perspective on Humanity. WE care!
“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.” Chief Seattle, leader of the Suquamish and Duwamish tribes
