Dr. Bruce Lipton is a well-known cell biologist who wrote the book The Biology of Belief. Through his research, Dr. Lipton came to the conclusion that it is not your genes that determine your fate; rather, it is the environment that is the key factor. He states that the genes are more like a potential blueprint. In and of themselves, they are not, the cause of the end result. Furthermore, he stipulates that a vital part of the environment is your own perceptions and beliefs. It is these beliefs that determine what will happen to the genes. Thus, you are not a victim of your genes. If you change your beliefs, you can affect your health and the quality of your life.
Dr. Lipton explains that the first seven years of your life you are being programmed by everything around you and that your conscious mind is not present during this period. After age seven the conscious mind develops. However, everything that you learned the first seven years now becomes part of your subconscious mind. Dr. Lipton states that about 95% of the time your subconscious mind is dictating what is occurring in your life, and only about 5% of the time is your conscious mind in control. In other words, even though you think you are in control, it is the subconscious programming that is calling the shots. Because it is “subconscious,” or below conscious awareness, you are not even aware of how you are being impacted.
Dr. Lipton further points out that 60% to 70% of the programming that is in your subconscious is not positive; in fact, it is often disempowering. This negative programming prevents you from being your best self and from getting what you want out of life. To make matters worse, this negative programming can also contribute to serious health problems. Dr. Lipton reported that the Jesuits have known this for years and even expressed that if they are given a child for the first seven years of his or her life, that child will belong to the church. They understood all about programming.
One exception to being controlled by the programming is when one falls in love. When this happens, the individual is living very much in the present moment and is temporarily free of the programming. Living in the present moment, or being mindful, releases you from the programming. However, this period does not last indefinitely and once the “honeymoon” is over, you go back to being at the mercy of your subconscious programs.
Although this sounds rather discouraging, there are things you can do to free yourself from the negative or disempowering programming. Dr. Lipton maintains there are only three ways you can do this. One way is with the use of certain types of psychology. Another very significant way is through the use of hypnosis. Hypnosis deals with the subconscious and can thus help you replace the negative beliefs or programs with much healthier and enabling beliefs. Finally, Dr. Lipton suggests the use of repetition. Here again, hypnosis can actually enhance this method by providing hypnotic suggestions to encourage you to practice these new behavioral patterns until they become a habit.
If you feel that you are not living the life you truly desire, or that something is holding you back and causing you distress, hypnosis may be the answer. Hypnosis is safe and is usually very relaxing and enjoyable. You are always in control and will never do anything that goes against your moral beliefs or values. In addition, with hypnosis, you can make significant changes in a relatively short period of time, so it is really quite cost-effective.
