In this short video, Bruce talks about how positive thoughts can help negate the toxic effects from the outer world, thus protecting us from the harm. He speaks of how changing his thoughts brought about positive changes in his own life.
He goes on to say, “At one point, I realized that whenever I heard a negative conversation in my head, I needed to correct it right then, in that moment, and put in a more positive conversation…The beautiful part was that it didn’t take very long before I started to realize that my life had turned around because I had changed my opinion of what I expected from my life. I started to become happier, healthier, and much more successful, not because the world had changed, but because I had changed.”
Is there a simple way to apply Bruce’s research to help you transform your life? Yes!
The I Create What I Believe! Program, endorsed by Dr. Lipton and based on his research, is an innovative and scientifically sound way to transform negative and fear-based beliefs and create a happier, healthier, and more successful life.
Remember that our mind is really a two-mind system (conscious and subconscious) and it operates in an either/or manner—meaning you cannot be in your conscious mind and subconscious mind simultaneously. If you activate your conscious mind, you automatically suspend your subconscious mind and the tapes that are stored there. This creates an opportunity for you to write a new and more appropriate response.
Some adults and children love this ICWIB! activity, while others may find it a bit challenging. If you encounter difficulty with this activity, just slow down, get curious, and pay attention to your body’s sensations so you can feel when you have shifted from your subconscious to conscious mind. When that happens in me, I normally feel a great stillness or calmness wash over me.
Remember there is NO wrong way to do any of the ICWIB! activities. If you have difficulty duplicating a mirror reflection, just slow down and pay closer attention to the intersecting points of the lines. If you realize when you finish doing your reflective circle that you didn’t flip a previous image to create a mirror reflection, remember what you did is NOT wrong. Instead, just note that your drawing is showing you the underdevelopment of this part of your mind. Repeated practice of this activity will help spur further development here, which in turn can increase your ability to see and transform inaccurate perceptions and negative internal chatter.
