The Biology of Belief 10th Anniversary Edition: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles –Bruce H. Lipton

Bruce H. Lipton, PhD is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. Stem cell biologist, bestselling author and recipient of the 2009 Goi Peace Award, he has been a guest speaker on hundreds of TV and radio shows, as well as keynote presenter for national and international conferences. His research at Stanford University’s School of medicine, revealed that the environment, operating through the membrane, controlled the behavior and physiology of the cell, turning genes on and off.

“In the last decade, epigenetic research has established that DNA blueprints passed down through genes are not set in concrete at birth. Genes are not destiny! Environmental influences, including nutrition, stress, and emotions, can modify those genes without changing their basic blueprint.”

“My colleagues and I trained our students to disregard the healing claims attributed to acupuncture, chiropractic, massage therapy, prayer, etc. In fact, we went further. We denounced these practices as the rhetoric of charlatans because we were tethered to a belief in old-style, Newtonian physics. The healing modalities I just mentioned are all based on the belief that energy fields are influential in controlling our physiology and our health.”

“Quantum physicists discovered that physical atoms are made up of vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating; each atom is like a wobbly spinning top that radiates energy. Because each atom has its own specific energy signature (wobble), assemblies of atoms (molecules) collectively radiate their own identifying energy patterns. So every material structure in the universe, including you and me, radiates a unique energy signature.”

“Though conventional medicine still has not focused on the role energy plays as “information” in biological systems, ironically, it has embraced noninvasive scanning technologies, which read such energy fields.”

“Despite this groundbreaking work in quantum biophysics and thanks in part to the vast resources of the pharmaceutical industry, an entity that thrives on sales of chemical signals and abhors drug-free energy medicine, the conventional world of medicine is still essentially ignoring the role of energy in shaping biological expression.”

“While Big Pharma and closed minds prevent some scientists from jumping on the quantum bandwagon, the public leads the way into the frontiers of energy medicine.”

“While many in the medical profession are aware of the placebo effect, few have considered its implications for self-healing. If positive thinking can pull you out of depression and heal a damaged knee, consider what negative thinking can do in your life.”

“Our positive and negative beliefs not only impact our health but also every aspect of our life. Henry Ford was right about the efficiency of assembly lines, and he was right about the power of the mind: “If you believe you can or if you believe you can’t … you’re right.”

“In humans as well, the fundamental behaviors, beliefs, and attitudes we observe in our parents become “hardwired” as synaptic pathways in our subconscious minds. Once programmed into the subconscious mind, they control our biology for the rest of our lives … or at least until we make the effort to reprogram them.”
