In this short video Dr. Bruce Lipton talks about how the function of the mind is to create coherency between what we believe and the reality that we experience.
About 2500 years ago, the Buddhists said that “what we think we become.” Now the field of epigenetics says, “What you are thinking is translated into chemistry that will determine what you become…” This means our thoughts are translated into chemistry, which is then transmitted to our cells. So if we believe there is a threat, then the signal of “threat” is released into the blood to prepare the cells for a protection response. The problem with this system is that since the cells don’t see the environment, they don’t know if the threat is real or perceived.
Since we are currently living in very stressful and challenging times, I think it is important for everyone to know how to quickly restore balance whenever they find their body in a state of dis-ease. This can be accomplished by doing any activity that moves you from your subconscious (reactive) mind to your conscious (problem-solving) mind.
To accomplish this I often turn to one of the activities in the ICWIB program, because they help me slow down, deepen my breath, let go of my agenda, soften my heart and focus my mind. In the process I change my brain-state and ultimately find a solution. With this in mind, I invite you and the children in your life, to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE.
