It all started with Bruce. Bruce Lipton. And his Petri dish. What he discovered in it and how he put it together in his best seller “The Biology of Belief”.
When I read it 2 years ago I went from Hmm, to Ahh… to OMG! And it helped me understand why I wasn’t getting where I wanted to in life, and how I could start changing it.
Here are my breakthrough moments, and how it helped me change my life.
“Hmm” moment: contrarily to common belief, when you remove all its DNA from a cell, the cell does NOT die, it keeps living and working as per its design. So the DNA does not control the behaviour of the cell, it is merely the blueprint to manufacture its spare parts. The only reason why cells without DNA are dying is because their parts cannot be repaired or replaced when they wear off.
“Ahh” Moment: because he was cloning stem cells, Bruce could take strictly identical cells and put them into different Petri dishes, each in a different environment. Each cell, even though it had the exact same DNA, grew into something different depending on the environment they were put in. A cell growing in a nutritious environment was thriving. The exact same cell with the exact same DNA growing in a hostile environment was dying.
“Oh My God” Moment: when I put it together: the behaviour and health of a cell does not depend on its DNA, it depends on its environment.
We as human beings are a collection of billions of cells. Our behaviour and health does not depend on our DNA, it depends on the environment we live in, and the environment we live in is only as good as WE PERCEIVE IT TO BE.
Do you perceive your environment to be loving and nurturing or to be unfriendly and hostile ?
We see our environment through a multitude of “sieves”, filters, put in place by our brain to avoid us being overloaded with information.
There is only so much we are able to process consciously. If our brain was not constantly screening all the information we receive second-by-second from our environment, we would short-circuit!
So it habitually selects which information is relevant to us, and which isn’t. We are not aware of this selection, and we are not aware of what is left behind as a result of it.
And what are the selection criteria? Where do they come from?
How come some people seem to have more luck then others, why some people seem to come across great opportunities, make good choices and succeed more than others? Are some people cursed and others blessed?
Depending on the selection criteria through which our brains screens in or out the information from our environment - the sieves or filters through which we see our world - what is allowed into our awareness can be constantly positive, supporting & nurturing or constantly limiting, self sabotaging & even destructive.
It is not a question of luck or misfortune, or of curse or blessing. It’s a question of which filters our brain is using to screen all the information we are constantly bombarded with from our surroundings.
What does your brain allow you to notice? How are you screening life? Do you notice the rain or the rainbow? Do you notice that the bus is late or the smile of the bus driver when he apologizes for the delay?
When your brain has a positive filter it will urge you to pick up the newspaper where that ad for the job of your dreams is. It will make you turn left instead of right on the street where you will bump into that old friend you haven’t seen in years. It will make you talk to that stranger who will become your loving life-long partner, etc…
When your brain has negative filters, at best you are just missing out on great opportunities. At the worst you are attracting into your awareness failure and havoc.
Can we teach our brain to screen the good stuff in and leave the bad stuff out? Can we change the filters through which we see the world? These filters are our beliefs, our subconscious beliefs, the ones we don’t know we have and yet dictate what our brain is allowing us to notice and experience.
Do you believe the Universe to be a friendly place? If so you might notice the rainbow more so than the rain. If you are constantly noticing the rain and the late bus, but never the rainbow nor the smile of the bus driver, you might have negative filters, negative beliefs you inherited from your past experiences, your parents, teachers, etc… And that might deprive you from amazing opportunities, & put you in situations where you will fade instead of thrive, like the cell in the wrong Petri dish.
Can we check the quality of our filters? Can we change them if they are no longer supporting us?
Then again, Bruce gave me the answer:
“The ‘secret of life’ is BELIEF. Rather than genes, it is our beliefs that control our lives, PSYCH-K® is a set of simple, self-empowering processes to change your beliefs and perceptions that impact your life at a cellular level.”
(Bruce Lipton, PhD, cellular biologist, world renowned author of Biology of Belief.)
I trained in PSYCH-K® with Katherine Moyer last year, and it was the “beginning of the rest of my life”. I have changed my limiting belief’s, I have changed my Petri dish! You can too.
Katherine is in Dublin for a limited time, bringing again PSYCH-K® to Ireland.
