Book Review: The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton, Ph.D.
Here is a science based book that is not only accessible reading but has the potential to radically change the way we think and ultimately the way we live our lives. That’s quite a claim! If you’re not interested in changing your life for the better right now, don’t read any further as it takes a bit of time to read and absorb all the science. My first read admittedly was a scan to see if I wanted to really get into it. As I had a science background in my early life, I found it compelling and illuminating. And I don’t often go overboard about books, especially when my main genre of reading is travel stories.
Back to the topic of how our thinking and beliefs affect our lives totally. It’s simple, but not easy.
We’ve been taught that we are like machines, run by bio-chemicals and DNA. As a world renowned cellular biologist, Bruce Lipton has discovered that it is actually the opposite. Our entire biology is shaped by the intelligence of each of our 50 trillion cells. And the single most important way to influence them is through the energy of our beliefs. Some of the areas included in this book are:
The science of EPIGENETICS – what it is and why it is important and revolutionary.
Bridging the gap between QUANTUM MECHANICS and biology. This is the key to knowing how your cells listen to the energy of your thoughts
The chemistry of STRESS and LOVE. How your body, mind, and immune system change with each emotional state.
Turning the immense power of your MIND into your most valuable tool for health and well – being.
“Since the publication of Biology of Belief, Bruce Lipton has been widely embraced as one of the most accessible and knowledgeable voices of new biology”.
I can’t really say more than that.
