“As soon as you tell yourself that you can’t do something anymore, then your biological system will adjust and prove you right.” ~Dr. Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., author of The Biology of Belief
If you want to learn about the power of the mind, I highly recommend you read Dr. Lipton’s work. To be honest, though, it’s not easy to describe Dr. Lipton. I’ve watched many of his videos explaining our subconscious mind, our brain, quantum physics, etc., and quite often I’ve had to pause, rewind, and watch again because it can be some heady stuff. Pun intended, LOL. But it is fascinating!
Another quote from him I like, “If the brain expects that a treatment will work, it sends healing chemicals into the bloodstream, which facilitates that. That’s why the placebo effect is so powerful for every type of healing. And the opposite is true and equally powerful: when the brain expects that a therapy will not work, it doesn’t. It’s called the “nocebo” effect.”
