Marianne Williamson Work Is Your Ministry

Bruce Lipton, a world famous physician, educator and author is often quoted by his fans as an icon of self-help and 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 best known for his research into the human mind and the universe of human consciousness.

In his book The Biology of Belief: Research on the Changing Self, Bruce Lipton shows how our thought processes are linked to the physical body. In this book he explores how belief can shape and control our conscious information processing and our behavior patterns. To understand how this works you need to look at how we think and why. According to Bruce Lipton, when we think, our brains release chemicals known as neurotransmitters, which flow through pathways in our brains. These neurotransmitters are responsible for coordinating all our thinking, communication and bodily functions.

Our thoughts, emotions, memories, skills, wisdom and creativity are produced with these neurotransmitters. But it’s important to realize that our thinking is not solely a function of our mind. Our body, including our thoughts and subconscious mind also affects our thinking. Weaker thinking 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. For instance, if we’re solving a problem or developing new skills, we might begin by using logic and rational thinking. But as soon as we get caught into our own”logical mystery” we revert to our emotional memory and behaviour patterns. And before we know it we’re back at square one, with another problem and possibly another round of frustrated and angry response.

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

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

Bruce Lipton presents several practical actions to help people solve their particular issues. These steps are based on his years of clinical practice and research. These steps are especially valuable for those who can’t afford or don’t want to spend money on counselling sessions. In actuality, if you believe that you want 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 how to solve problems. Furthermore, he teaches that there are two parts to a problem; the physical problem and the emotional problem or concern. And he believes these two parts can be separated because the physical problem is only a symptom of deeper emotional issues. . .so if you ignore the emotional problem, you won’t be dismissing the physical one either.
