Fear and Deception

In this short video Bruce Lipton talks about how fear is a great motivator and if you can get people to live in fear you can sell them anything. He goes on to explain that when we are in fear, our chemistry changes and our stress hormones change the operation of our brain so we become less intelligent, more open to manipulation, and further disempowerment.

How does this happen?

When we are in fear our stress hormones constrict the blood vessels in our forebrain, which is where conscious reasoning and logical thinking takes place. It then forces the blood to the hindbrain where no thinking takes place and we operate from reactive behavior.

If you find yourself feeling fearful, stressed, or overwhelmed, how can you move back into your forebrain or conscious mind?

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 learn how to activate and move back into their conscious mind (forebrain) with activities as simple as scribbling and drawing circles and lines.

Explore and Ponder: Activity Two

Each I Create What I Believe! (ICWIB!) art activity is built upon the previous ones. In the first activity, Just Scribble, which is an introduction to the art of self-reflection, you learn to use the movement of your crayon and your breath to increase your focus, go inward, and observe. In this second activity, Explore and Ponder or the preschool version, Circles and Lines, you learn to uncover how drawing specific-shaped lines and patterns can shift your mind-state quickly and effectively. In the process, you are creating a “tailor-made” set of tools for shifting your mind-states anywhere or any time.

As you explore drawing both circles and lines, pay specific attention to the size, direction drawn, and amount of pressure that gives you the most pleasure, because feeling pleasure and joy are indicators that you have activated your conscious mind (forebrain). When you activate the conscious mind, the feel-good hormone oxytocin and the neurotransmitter dopamine are released into your body and brain.

Once you have uncovered the pattern that gives you the most pleasure, use it as your own personally tailored stress-reducing tool. I also invite you to share this ICWIB! activity with your family, friends, colleagues, and community, because I think everyone—both young and old—could benefit from having their own tailor made stress reduction tools.

Any Surface

I had known for a long time that I felt better whenever I was drawing, painting, or sculpting, but I didn’t really understand why until I met Dr. Bruce Lipton in 1989. It was at that first meeting where he explained to me that our mind actually consists of two minds—the subconscious and the conscious mind. They were designed to work together in tandem, but they are very different.

The subconscious or reactive mind is stronger, bigger, and a million times faster than the conscious mind. On the other hand, the conscious mind has the capacity to rewrite beliefs and perceptions we acquired in our early childhood that hinder our ability to succeed.

The creative process requires the conscious mind. Since the two-mind team—subconscious and conscious—operates in an “either-or” system, when you activate your conscious mind you also suspend the subconscious mind. This means you are also suspending preprogrammed beliefs and perceptions, which creates an opportunity for you to identify an inaccurate belief, change it, and create a more effective response.

With this in mind, any time I need to activate my conscious mind and I don’t have paper, canvas, or clay, I will use any surface available to me to shift myself from my reactive mind to my conscious mind so I can continue to create a more authentic and joyous life.

I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE because they are a simple and effective way to activate your conscious problem-solving mind.

Thrive

When life doesn’t play out the way we want, we can try and change others or we can learn how to go inward, identify what we need to change, and then change it. The first action of trying change a situation by changing others never really works and tends to be disempowering for all concerned. On the other hand, learning how to go inside and change an inaccurate belief or perception can have a profound impact on a situation and is an act of self-empowerment.

When Dr. Bruce Lipton said, “When you change a belief, you can change your whole life,” this is what he was talking about. So whenever you find yourself wrestling with a challenge, instead of fixating on what others need to change, step back, go inward and discover what you need to change and then change it. Responding to a challenge in this way can have a profound impact on your whole life.

I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE because they are a simple and effective way to help you learn how to go inward, change a belief or perception, and ultimately change your whole life.

Bite Yourself in the Butt


Have you ever said or did something that later came back to bite you in the butt? I know I have. When I was younger I tried to sweep those moments under the rug or downplay them because not being perfect and being caught in the act of not being perfect was too embarrassing. Now in my less-than-glorious moments, I try to not run, hide, or sweep the event under the rug. Instead, I try to stop, look inside, and discover the root or underlying belief or perception behind my behavior, and then change that. This is not a chastising moment, but rather one of peaceful and loving acceptance of myself.

How does stopping and going inside help me discover the underlying cause or belief? Slowing down and observing each step helps me to shift from my reactive, unconscious mind to my conscious, creative problem-solving mind. In the process, I gain the ability to see the cause of my problem, and also create a new and more appropriate response. This is what Dr. Bruce Lipton is talking about when he said, “…When you change a belief or perception you can change your whole life…”

I often turn to the simple ICWIB art activities, which require no artistic training or skill because they are a fun and easy way to discover the underlying belief or perception behind behavior, and then change it.

With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE.

Epigenetics 101

Even today, medical students and practitioners are operating under the assumption that genes are the primary factors in biological processes and that we are essentially all just victims of our heredity. To put it simply, modern science has mistaken the blueprint, in this case the DNA, for the contractor who actually builds the house.

The revolutionary science of Dr. Bruce Lipton proved that it’s actually the cell membrane, which is covered in hundreds of thousands of receptor proteins, that is specialized to interpret different signals from the environment and relay the information back to the cells. Epigenetics has scientifically proven that evolution is no longer a mindless game of chance based on random hereditary variance, rather it is an interactive dance between organism and environment.

Since we now know that evolution is not a mindless game of chance, but rather this interaction, how can we actively transform any negative programs we have and also help our children transform any negative programs they might have already acquired?

I Create What I Believe! Program, endorsed by Dr. Bruce Lipton and based on his research, offers fun and scientifically sound activities that teach both children and adults how to transform negative programs quickly and effortlessly.

The Programmable Mind

At UPLIFT Festival 2014, Dr. Bruce Lipton shared how “your life is not coming from your conscious wishes and desires, your life is coming from your program.” He stated the function of the mind is to create coherence between beliefs and reality and simply put quoting Henry Ford, “If you believe you can, or you believe you can’t—you’re right.”

Dr. Lipton explained that scientific research shows we are only truly conscious 5% of the day, meaning only 5% of the day comes from our creative wishes, desires, and aspirations. The other 95% of the time we operate on autopilot with the default program that resides in our subconscious mind. The problem with this equation is that the majority of the programs that reside in the subconscious mind are negative, limiting, and disempowering, and stress triggers this part of the mind to take over and run your whole system.

So how can we shed our negative programming and create more from our wishes and desires when we live in a high stressed culture?

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 learn how to change their negative programming with activities as simple as scribbling and drawing circles and lines.

Explore and Ponder: Activity Two

Each I Create What I Believe! (ICWIB!) art activity is built upon the previous ones. In the first activity, Just Scribble, which is an introduction to the art of self-reflection, you learn to use the movement of your crayon and your breath to increase your focus, go inward, and observe. In this second activity, Explore and Ponder or the preschool version, Circles and Lines, you learn to uncover how drawing specific-shaped lines and patterns can instantly shift-mind states for you. In the process, you are also able to create a “tailor made” set of tools for shifting your mind states anywhere or any time. This means you won’t have to be a victim of your programming anymore!

In the programmable mind video above, Dr. Bruce Lipton says, “…The way to create peace is to help our children not acquire negative programming.” I would like to add, “…and provide them, their parents, and teachers with tools so they can all release any negative programming they have already acquired.”

How could doing the ICWIB! activities help bring about peace? When you shift from your reactive mind to your conscious mind your heart opens, your mind becomes clearer, and you experience an inner peacefulness. This in turn shifts your perceptions and allows you to move through life in a more open-hearted and compassionate way, instead of responding from your negative programs.

So with this in mind, I invite you to collectively join together and learn, practice, and share the ICWIB! activities with your family, friends, colleagues, and community, and when you do, please share your stories with all of us on our ICWIB! Facebook page.

Choosing Love

In this delightful video, Dr. Bruce Lipton and his wife Margaret Horton share with you the importance of choosing love and how that one single choice can change your whole life.

It is important to remember that the body can only read two emotions—fear and love. Hate, anger, anxiety, guilt, and frustration can trigger the reactive subconscious mind, which is where our fundamental beliefs about life and ourselves are stored. No thinking takes place in this part of the mind. Love, contentment, peace, and joy activate the conscious, creative, problem-solving mind. In that part of the mind, we have the capacity to create anything. Deciding to choose love is quite simple; however, stepping into each moment with or from love can sometimes be a challenge

Choosing Love

"Choosing love is probably one of the most important choices I've made in my life."Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D and Margaret Horton open up about their relationship and what it takes to make love last.

Posted by Uplift Connect on Thursday, April 20, 2017

If we want to create an authentic and joyous life, we must first learn to identify when we are in our reactive mind versus our creative mind, then we need to transform the beliefs and perceptions we have acquired, which are at the root of our fears, and replace those old beliefs with more accurate beliefs, perceptions, and responses.

So how can we accomplish this in our fear-ridden society, where we are already overbooked with commitments and overloaded with stress?

The I Create What I Believe! Program, endorsed by Dr. Lipton and based on his research, offers fun and scientifically sound tools to restore balance in your body and help you shift effortlessly from your reactive mind into your conscious, creative, and problem-solving mind.

One of the most important messages you will ever hear!

The implications Dr. Bruce Lipton’s research has radically changed our understanding of life, specifically dispelling the myth that we have no control over—and are victims of—our genetics. This video shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts.

In this dynamic and mind-shifting video, Dr. Lipton also talks about the evolutionary stages that have transpired since the beginning of time and how these steps are playing out right now in our personal life and life as we know it on this planet.

Very simplistically, in the first evolutionary step there was bacterium. Then they colonized and became an amoeba. When the amoeba colonized they became a human. As humans we are now colonizing into a super-organism called humanity.

To become part of the cooperative community that is coming together creating this new super organism called humanity, we need to approach life from the awareness of our integrated connection instead of the survival of the fittest perspective. In order to accomplish this, many of us will need to change some of our fundamental beliefs about life and ourselves.

Is there a simple way that both children and adults can change their outdated and inaccurate beliefs and perceptions so he or she can become a healthy and positive contributing cell in this new super organism we call humanity?

The I Create What I Believe! Program, endorsed by Dr. Lipton and based on his research, offers a fun and scientifically sound tool to do this. In Activity One, Version Two, this fun and simple exercise will help you become a healthy, vibrant, and positive contributing member of humanity.

Living from our deepest wishes and desires

In an interview on E-Motion Health, Dr. Bruce Lipton shared that we’ve been programmed (similar to the Matrix) and that our lives have been driven by the program, instead of our deepest wishes and desires. He said that this programming resides in the subconscious mind, and once we let go of the program we can change our lives instantaneously and live from our deepest wishes, desires, and aspirations.

So how can we let go of, or change, our programming?

The I Create What I Believe! Program, endorsed by Dr. Lipton and based on his research, offers this fun and scientifically sound tool to change your perceptions, let go of inaccurate programming, and help you create a more authentic life.

We Are Stronger Together

In his Uplift podcast “Why We Are Stronger Together”, Dr. Bruce Lipton explains our world is not meant to be a battleground and how ‘survival of the fittest’ theories have led to a breakdown of community. Instead, he argues that humanity’s best survival strategy is unity.

So how can a person change these negative ideals if how they were taught to relate to the world?

The I Create What I Believe! Program, endorsed by Dr. Lipton and based on his research, is an innovative and scientifically sound way to change these negative ideals and create a more balanced and unified life.
