How Science Supports “Your Thoughts Create Your Reality”
Once again, starting with the idea that your thoughts create your reality, how does modern science support this idea? Two scientists whose ideas have been around for 15-20 years have made discoveries that support this idea. One is Bruce Lipton, a cellular biologist, who made some remarkable discoveries in the lab, and was only able to explain them by turning the accepted understanding of cell function upside down. His discoveries were so radical that when he presented his ideas for peer review to a room full of his colleagues, they ALL walked out!
He decided that he could not change his findings, so he left academic science. He wrote a delightful book, The Biology of Belief (copyright 2005).
“His experiments, and those of other leading-edge scientist, have examined in great detail the mechanisms by which cells receive and process information. The implications of this research radically change our understandings of life. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts” (from the dust jacket of the first edition).
In other words, your beliefs determine your biology. Beliefs are ideas that we have about reality, mostly unconscious, that essentially control our behavior. Many of these deeply held beliefs are thoughts that we consciously express that limit us in very specific ways.
Candace Pert, is another scientist whose work supports our premise. She was one of the scientists who discovered neurotransmitters and mapped the chemical messaging systems of the body.
She says, basically, every thought you think sends a stream of chemicals into the blood stream. These chemicals are secreted by the glands of the endocrine system in response to our thoughts, and create the experience we call our emotions. If you think a sad thought, you get certain chemicals in the blood, or a happy thought, certain others, or an angry thought…
In her book Molecules of Emotion she describes her research on how the chemicals inside our bodies form a dynamic information network, linking body and mind.
Once again your thoughts create you experience which is your reality. Want to know how this works? Learn More…
