The impact of how thoughts affect health has been scientifically proven. Over the past 30 to 40 years, hundreds of studies have shown that the beliefs of the mind hold more power over the body than any other factor.
In his book The Biology of Belief, Dr. Bruce Lipton examines in great detail the processes by which cells receive information.
The implication of Lipton’s research, along with that of other leading-edge scientists, radically changes our understanding of life.
The research shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology but rather our biology is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts.
In fact, according to this science, not only do our individual thoughts affect health at the cellular level, our thoughts affect the health and well being of every other living thing.
How does this relate to water? Water is the medium by which cells communicate with each other.
According to a scientist at Newton.dep.anl.gov, “The role of water is primarily that of being the media that the chemicals [i.e., hormones, which are chemical messengers in the body] are dissolved in and transported within.”
This scientist also states that cells require a constant amount of water to maintain osmotic pressure within the cell.
The amount of water required is undetermined, but it stands to reason that cells are able to communicate more efficiently when they are fully hydrated. Or, in the very least, that cellular communication is impaired when the body is dehydrated.
Dr. Lipton’s synthesis of the latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics is a major breakthrough, showing that our bodies can be changed as we retrain our thinking.
As I understand it, the quantum worldview teaches that we are all part of an infinite field of intelligence—the source of our thoughts, feelings, body and everything else in the universe.
This paradigm is gaining more and more acceptance in Western science and medicine.
The implications of this science in regards to healing the physical body are significant. The process of healing is based on a several key assumptions, including the following:
Even though these assumptions may be a stretch for some of us to believe, they are deeply rooted in science.
In essence, quantum physics tells us that our consciousness does affect the biochemistry of the body, moment by moment.
And the more that we believe and can identify with the timeless and changeless nature of our existence, the possibilities for optimal health and wellness are unlimited.
