Our pre- and perinatal experiences form a biological template, which colors subsequent feelings and attitudes about ourselves, our relationships and our connection to Earth and Spirit.
Awareness of this important programming mechanism can be used to prevent further harm, as well as heal the places in our hearts and minds where we ourselves have acquired limiting programs.
In this exciting video, Dr. Lipton reveals that our DNA is like a storehouse of blueprints. The environment is the key that unlocks the DNA, releasing the particular blueprint designed for survival in that particular environment. Our DNA is actually not rigid, but flexible, in shaping our bodies and behavior, adapting to our needs as they are perceived. Since we see our environment through the lens of our perception, it is our perception of the environment that has the final say in how we access our genetic resources.
Knowing the material this video provides gives impetus for us to find ways to reduce individual and community levels of stress and anxiety, especially for pregnant women and their babies. The importance of prenatal life is greater than previously thought; for example, it is estimated that fifty percent of a person's intelligence is determine prenatally. Dr. Lipton's research provides us with insight and tools to make positive, preventive changes for the benefit of babies, families, and society-at-large.
Boldly, Dr. Lipton states that consciousness can override genes and the subconscious and that it is more powerful than either nature or nurture. He proposes that our most important growth factor, which along the way heals the environment and our immune system, is Love. "Our pre- and perinatal experiences form a biological template, which colors subsequent feelings and attitudes about ourselves, our relationships and our connection to Earth and Spirit."
"Nature, Nurture and the Power of Love" is astounding in its scope and knowledge. As always, Bruce Lipton is dynamic, entertaining, and informative. The paradigm shift proposed in this video deserves serious consideration. At minimum, we in the pre- and perinatal field must find creative and powerful ways of implementing and disseminating this information. We cannot afford to ignore the profound implications it has for our future.
Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., is an internationally recognized authority in bridging science and spirit and a leading voice in new biology. A cell biologist by training, he taught at the University of Wisconsins School of Medicine, and later performed pioneering studies at Stanford University. The author of The Biology of Belief, he has been a guest speaker on hundreds of TV and radio shows, as well as keynote presenter for national and international conferences.
