Bruce Lipton, The Biology of Belief, and the Wisdom of Our Cells

Photo Credit
I've referred to Bruce Lipton frequently in these posts, as well as in a number of the articles I've written for my newsletter (now also in Spanish), due to the cutting-edge research he has done in cellular biology. I've also referred to his book The Biology of Belief: Unleashing The Power Of Consciousness, Matter And Miracles in order to encourage people to pick it up and look into the results of the incredible data this scientist has come up with.

This morning on the beach (hey, it's the weekend) I took along my CD player and was listening to an interview Art Bell did with Dr. Lipton, and was again reminded of the gloriously liberating data that is coming out of so many sectors of science.

In this case, the work Bruce Lipton has done has demonstrated empirically that we are not at the mercy of our genes. This is paradigm-shifting information that takes us right out of the box and into our own ability to be the creators of our own lives.

On his website, Dr. Lipton offers a much fascinating information. One of the articles available there goes more deeply into the subject of our freedom from genetic dominance, explaining (as recent discoveries in quantum physics also demonstrate) that we are indeed in charge of our own healing, and - in many ways - our own destiny.

Lipton writes: "The new science takes us from victim to creator. " What could be more liberating than that?

The Wisdom of Your Cells

"The Wisdom of Your Cells is a new biology that will profoundly change civilization and the world we live in. This new biology takes us from the belief that we are victims of our genes, that we are biochemical machines, that life is out of our control, into another reality, a reality where our thoughts, beliefs and mind control our genes, our behavior and the life we experience. This biology is based on current, modern science with some new perceptions added.

The new science takes us from victim to creator; we are very powerful in creating and unfolding the lives that we lead. This is actually knowledge of self and if we understand the old axiom, "Knowledge is power," then what we are really beginning to understand is the knowledge of self-power. This is what I think we will get from understanding the new biology." read more

I encourage you to inform yourself. This information is life-giving and enriching, liberating and broadening. If you are skeptical despite the empirical proof, ask yourself this: What if he is right? What will I lose by not informing myself and putting some of these ideas into practice in my own life?


  1. This is wonderful information, Gabriella.

    As you know I do a blog about adoption, and I see that some people get bogged down in how genes and biology might dictate many aspects of an adopted person's life "no matter what their parents try to do".

    I think everyone needs more of this kind of information, but it can be especially liberating for people who have been adopted and know nothing about their genetic past. For some people, this kind of information could be equivalent to writing them a blank check - suddenly they are in charge of life instead of the other way around!

    Thanks again!

  2. Yes!

    It is so important and so liberating to have this information. That's why I am so interested in getting this to young kids - obviously the sooner we start teaching things of this nature in schools, the greater a degree of inner freedom our children will have - and consequently, we assume - much better lives.

    Are we born depressive? Is it in our genes? Are we born agressive? Is it in our genes? Do we stand to inherit the cancer that took mother when she was only 54? Or the heart attack that left dad paralyzed when he was 62?

    This paradign-shifting stuff that so many fields of endeavour in science are coming out with is so incredibly enlightening!
