Program and Materials
The I Create What I Believe! program, and its books and exploratory exercises in this program are based on Nancy Marie’s professional art experience and the research of Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. In 1987, while Dr. Lipton was a fellow in pathology at Stanford Medical School, his studies proved that our beliefs and perceptions control our cellular biology, and that when we change our beliefs we can change our whole life.
Dr. Lipton also found that hypnotic-like practices were the most effective way to change old beliefs that are stored in our subconscious. He felt that drawing, when approached in a noncompetitive manner, as encouraged in the I Create What I Believe! program, was an excellent method for transforming old beliefs, thought patterns and behavior. This is because drawing in this manner takes the brain into a relaxed and receptive state, which allows for easy transformation of stifling patterns, and it is self-initiated.
