When Science and Spirituality Come Together
During my internet travels, I came across a place where science and spirituality are studied hand in hand. The wonderful thing is that one doesn’t make sense without the other.
That place is a called Quantum Physics. Lynne McTaggart author and investigative journalist writes about this subject in her book The Field, that references many scientific studies showing how your mind and what you think has an influence over your body and your environment. This book led me to a biologist named Bruce Lipton. One of the most happiest and inspirational people I have come across online. Now I’m not going to even try to explain Quantum Physics but put as simply as I dare. All atoms and the particles that make up the atoms live by different rules than anything we know in normal life. The particles are drawn together by energy fields. Particles can move differently than larger matter. The same particle can even be in two places at once! Also particles and energy fields during tests did not behave in the predicted way and gave different results depending who was observing them. It changes the way we have always viewed reality. Dr Lipton says that genes are just a blueprint. With the new science of Epigenetics, our environment or our perception of the environment control genetic activity. We have to adjust our thinking to believe that we are not victims of genes, bugs, germs etc. We are the masters and have the say over what effects us and what doesn’t when it comes to disease, ageing and so on. Although it’s easy to say that in theory, it’s hard to do in practice. Dr Lipton says that before the age of 7 we ‘download’ everything from our environment. From our parents, teachers and peers. How to react, behave, what is or isn’t important, huge amounts of information. All this downloaded information becomes ‘set’. By the time we are adults, all of this downloaded information becomes part of our subconscious brain. Dr Lipton says that we spend 95% of our lives operating on the subconscious mind. Only 5% is conscious. Our conscious mind is the creative, wish filled brain that has desires and looks to the future. The conscious brain is what can be called truly our identity. The problem is that we are on ‘Automatic’ most of the time, letting our unconscious mind go through life with predicted actions and reactions that really, are not even ours. They are learnt from other people. That explains why we dream and hope for better things in life but the rest of you is doing everything it can to sabotage those wishes because it is programmed with a different belief.
The key is to reprogramme the subconscious.
