Love the comments in yesterday’s post on the discussion between whether we are predetermined outcomes of our DNA, or have the power to influence the genetic development of our cells. It’s a fascinating and very important question in the prosperity equation.
The whole subject was jump started by a book I’m reading entitled, The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. Dr Lipton started out as a typical member of academia, spouting the conventional dogma that genes control our destiny, and later evolved into one of the pioneers in epigenetics.
When you take this research on the role of the environment in regulating gene activity – and combine it with what we know about the power of the mind – the possibilities are simply electrifying.
When you stop letting thoughts get programmed into you or simply letting them happen…
When you make a conscious decision to become the thinker of the thought…
When you realize that millions of cells in your body die every day and that your thoughts can help effect whether they are replaced by sick or healthy ones…
Think back to what Napoleon Hill teaches about the power of autosuggestion in Think and Grow Rich. We are not pre-programmed biochemical machines, but organic, ever changing beings who can choose consciousness.
And as a few of you pointed out, we know at the ultimate level we are pure energy. Energetic waves reacting to the energy all around us in the quantum soup. And when you are conscious of this, and make a concerted effort to influence your environment, you influence the very cells that make up you.
Practical application: the very people you surround yourself with and spend the most time with. Having a prosperity manifestation map in your bedroom. Speaking affirmations. Spending daily time in meditation, prayer or other self-development.
It’s not just feel-good, tofu burger psychology. The science behind epigenetics proves that activities such as these actually create and influence the energetic environment around you, and that environment directly impacts you on a cellular level.
Ain’t it great!
