In this very informative video Dr. Bruce Lipton uses the analogy of a TV set and a broadcast to explain the interaction between the cell and the environment. He then goes on to explain that just understanding this interaction and the role of the subconscious and conscious mind alone cannot change your life because the subconscious mind, which is where our tapes are stored, and conscious mind, learn differently.
The subconscious mind learns through hypnosis (theta brain state), repetition (this must be felt and experienced), energy psychology (activities that engage the super-learning processes of the mind) and high-impact events. It is also important to remember that you need to be fully present.
The I Create What I Believe! Program, endorsed by Dr. Lipton and based on his research, offers fun and scientifically sound tools to help both children and adults transform negative beliefs that hinder their ability to thrive. This is accomplished with activities as simple as scribbling and drawing circles and lines.
The labyrinth, which has roots both in yogic breathing and labyrinth meditation walking, can help you relax your body, increase your sense of well-being, and help you become fully present. The repetitive motion and use of deep abdominal breathing can also help you create a theta brain state and shift you from your subconscious mind to your conscious mind. Once that is accomplished, you have the capacity to see and rewrite your programs.
In this exercise the focus needs to be on the tip of your crayon or pencil, not on the design that is emerging. Also, the pencil or crayon can be moved only on your exhalations. The depth of your inhalation and the speed of your exhalation will decide how far your pencil can move with each breath.
When you do this activity, I recommend you pay particular attention to the moment when your mind becomes still and you feel an expanded lightness, because in that moment you have shifted into your conscious mind. It is from there that we want to move through our day. It is also from there that we can create what Bruce Lipton calls “heaven on earth.”
If you are having difficulty bringing on the shift, just slow down your breathing and the movement of your crayon or pencil even more. I also invite you to explore doing this activity with your right hand, your left hand, or both of your hands together. If you find this activity to be helpful for you, remember you can always do it on your leg or arm with your finger. This will enable you to shift brain states anywhere or any time.
