Bruce Lipton, PhD

The Biology of Belief, Leading-Edge Science and Mind-Body Medicine and Spiritual Techniques

TRT: 29:09

Bruce Lipton, PhD, author of The Biology of Belief is regarded as one of the leading voices of the new biology. Lipton lectures to conventional and other health and medical professionals as well as lay audiences about leading-edge science and how it dovetails with mind-body medicine and spiritual principles. He also leads his own workshops. He says that many people report having improved their spiritual, physical and mental well being from applying the principles he discusses. Dr Lipton’s work shows that the environment, and more specifically, our perception (interpretation) of the environment, directly controls the activity of our genes through a process known as epigenetic control. This new perspective of human biology incorporates the role of mind and spirit which is fundamental in all healing. It recognizes that when we change our perception or beliefs we send totally different messages to our cells and reprogram their expression. Lipton explains that the (self)conscious mind is the "thinking" mind and the creative mind that expresses free-will. Its supporting partner is the subconscious mind, a super computer loaded with a database of programmed behaviors. Some of these programs are derived from genetics. These are our instincts and they represent nature. The subconscious mind is made up of behavioral programs learned in the first six years of life simply by observing our parents, siblings, peers and teachers and is strictly a stimulus-response device. These previously stored behavioral responses could well be self-sabotaging or limiting behavioral programs in our subconscious which “unconscientiously” undermine the efforts of our conscious mind's intentions. The subconscious mind is really like a tape player playing the recordings from our first years. Consequently, there is no discernment as to whether a subconscious behavioral program is good or bad... they are just tapes. We are generally consciously unaware of our fundamental perceptions or beliefs about life. It is very important to know that, in contrast to the power of the conscious mind, the subconscious mind is a million times more powerful an information processor. As neuroscientists emphasize, the conscious mind provides five percent or less of the cognitive activity during the day while ninety-five to ninety-nine percent of our behavior is directly derived from the subconscious. Lipton says that “positive thinking” is generally not effective if the subconscious supports different beliefs. For this reason it is extremely useful to get in touch with our unconscious beliefs and get them out of our systems in order that we may use our conscious minds to actually get congruency in our thinking and action. Lipton thinks this change is very possible by practicing Buddhist “mindfulness” to bring our unconscious to consciousnessness and also with the use of many of the new energy healing modalities which help to bring out and release our unconscious beliefs—meaning we can “erase those old tapes” and disconnect those “buttons” from our systems and thus more easily and readily creating those positive results our conscious mind wants.
