Beliefs Create Biology

on April 3, 2014

“…collective beliefs of a culture or society also affect our personal biology or behavior.”

Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. and Steve Bhaerman in Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future (And a Way to Get There from Here.(Emphasis mine.)

What is your reaction upon reading that? It is easy to agree that cultural and societal beliefs and norms affect our behavior. But can beliefs affect our biology?

Our behavior certainly affects our biology. On a fundamental level, the foods we eat, the beverages we drink, and the air we breathe become our body. While we are eating an apple, we see it as separate from ourselves. Within a few hours, we experience that apple as ourselves.

What is it within us that creates human beings from apples? Something within us changes an apple into a human being.

This same something can re-wire our brains (and change our biology) beyond social upbringing, family situations, and genetics.

(Thanks to Sadhguru for this insight.)

The Earth and the biosphere (which includes each of us) are an integrated living system.

If our beliefs are creating our bodies, our experiences, and our Planet, what would happen if most of us changed our beliefs?

What do you believe is the future of our children?

What do you believe about life?

Most of us have a whole series of limiting core beliefs such as:

  1. I don’t deserve an easy life.
  2. I’ll never have enough money/love/happiness.
  3. I’m stupid/ugly/unlovable.
  4. I’m being punished because I’ve done some bad things.

How has your child has changed your fundamental beliefs about life? Tell me in the comments or visit the Swan Mothers page on FaceBook.
