Marianne Williamson On Success

Bruce Lipton, a world famous physician, educator and writer is often quoted by his supporters as an icon of self-help and physical fitness. Born in 1906, Bruce Lipton obtained his medical degree from Harvard University and worked for the U.S. Public Health Service for over twenty years. He’s famous for his studies into the human mind and the world of human consciousness.

In his book The Biology of Belief: Research on the Changing Self, Bruce Lipton reveals how our thought processes are connected to the physical body. In this book he explores how opinion can control and shape our conscious information processing and our behavior patterns. To understand how this works you will need to examine how we think and why. According to Bruce Lipton, once we believe, our brains release chemicals called neurotransmitters, which flow through pathways in our brains. These neurotransmitters are responsible for coordinating all our thinking, communication and physiological functions.

Our thoughts, emotions, memories, skills, wisdom and creativity are all produced by these neurotransmitters. But it’s important to understand that our thinking is not solely a function of our mind. Our body, including our thoughts and subconscious mind also affects our thinking. Weaker believing can manifest in many different ways, from poor concentration and problem solving to cranky, anxious and angry.

Because our conscious mind does not always control our conscious information processing, sometimes we are forced to rely on our unconscious mind for help. As an example, if we are solving a problem or developing new skills, we may start by using logic and rational thinking. However, as soon as we get caught into our own”logical mystery” we revert to our emotional memory and behavior patterns. And before we know it we’re back at square one, with another issue and possibly another round of frustrated and angry response.

Bruce Lipton believes that the way we consider problem solving goes much beyond our intellectual capacities. Instead, he believesour unconscious mind provides the important information that guides and directs our behavior. And although this portion of our mind is far more difficult to influence than reflection and logic, it’s also more resistant to negative manipulation. It follows that we can change undesirable behavior patterns far more easily and effectively than we can with logic and rational thinking alone.

Bruce Lipton recommends using several problem solving techniques along with his classic ones. He says you need to be willing to go outside your comfort zone when solving complex problems, and he advocates using intuition as an additional tool. Intuition comes into play as it helps us connect what we know to our subconscious mind, which in turn helps us make connections to the unconscious mind. Another tool he suggests is to create an inner filter to remove conscious information and focus all attention on the intuitive part of the brain. Because conscious information tends to limit our instinctive skills, consciously processing too much information at once can have a serious inhibitory effect.

Bruce Lipton presents several practical actions to help people solve their particular problems. These measures are based on his years of clinical practice and research. These steps are especially helpful for those who cannot afford or don’t need to spend money on counseling sessions. In fact, if you feel that you need more help with problem solving, Bruce Lipton can often be a terrific source of support and inspiration.

Bruce Lipton’s problem solving techniques go beyond mere tips on the best way to solve problems. In addition, he teaches that there are two parts to a problem; the physical problem and the psychological problem or concern. And he believes both of these parts can be separated because the physical problem is simply a symptom of deeper emotional problems. . .so if you ignore the psychological problem, you will not be dismissing the physical one .
