We are not victims to our genes; we can actually become masters of our genetic activity because we have the ability to change our environment and our perception of our environment. In the Heal Documentary that was released last year, Dr. Bruce Lipton talked about how the findings of his scientific research revealed that cells depend on the nervous system’s interpretation to adjust their biology. So if a person changes their perception or belief about life, it (the nervous system) changes the signals that are going in and adjusts the function of the cells.
Dr. Lipton also talked about how we have 50 trillion cells living inside our skin in peace and harmony. Each cell, which has a specific job and contributes to the whole, is like an individual being and even though they are different and have diverse jobs, they are able to work together in unity and cooperation. We human beings on the other hand are living on a planet with 7.6 billion people and we are not living in peace and harmony; instead we are killing each other and ourselves. He goes on to say that we need to look to the wisdom of our cells and their ability to create a healthy economy, because “…They are doing it right and have been for a million years.…”
So how can we live in more peace and harmony, as our cells do, when we live in a high-pressure and stressed-out society?
There are many ways to bring about internal peace and harmony—and in the process gain the ability to change our perceptions—but they all have the same components: slowing down and deepening the breath, relaxing the body, and quieting the mind. Some people accomplish this through physical activity, while others may use the arts, or some form of meditation. The method isn’t important, just find a method that is supportive of your true nature. For example, my body loves to be in motion, so approaching my household tasks in a meditative manner, walking in a rhythmic manner or drawing with the intent of reconnecting with myself are wonderful ways for me to gain more internal harmony and peace. On the other hand, a sitting meditation is not beneficial for me.
In a recent interview Dr. Bruce Lipton said, “…Freedom is the ability to create without the limitation of generational programming.” The I Create What I Believe! (ICWIB!) program is a gateway and a pathway into a new and better future because it allows children to fully express themselves and to not be limited by the beliefs that have been passed down from generation to generation. This program also frees up the children’s mind and allows their creative nature to create a better world for all of us, which is what we need right now!
With this in mind, I would like to share the ICWIB Activity Eight: What Do You See?
I have used this activity to re-center myself and explore new ways of viewing a personal challenge. In the family context, I have used it to connect more deeply on a nonverbal level with my children. In a classroom situation, I have done this exercise on the blackboard with the students, because it can stimulate the mind and increase authentic connection very quickly within a group.
Since the ICWIB program, which is endorsed by Dr. Bruce Lipton and based on his research, has repeatedly demonstrated its ability to help even very young children reduce stress, resolve internal conflict, self-regulate and place their mind in a learning-ready state, we think it should be available to any teacher who wants to actively use it in his or her classroom regardless of their ability to pay for the training.
With this in mind, on March 1, 2018, we launched a crowd-funding campaign to raise money so we can offer the ICWIB training to 150 preschool and elementary school teachers in the upcoming academic year for FREE.
