When you’ve finished reading this article, I suggest you go off and read a book, and I’m going to do the same.   Not just any old book, but a book called ‘The Genius in All of Us’ by David Shenk.

Now I don’t normally recommend books which I haven’t read, but I’ve just read an article on the BBC website (see link below) which discusses its content.  It seems pretty much in line with what I already know on the subject of genes, hereditary factors and environmental influences on human development.  So, when you’ve read it (either the BBC article or the book) let me know what you think, and whether or not you’ve decided to become a genius!

Last summer I was fortunate enough to have been taught, amused and hugged by one of the world’s leading authorities on the biology of perception, Bruce Lipton.  See us together here – I bet you can imagine me rushing to the front of the lecture theatre in order to talk to him – I’m such a poser!   Bruce is an internationally recognised authority on cell biology, having performed pioneering studies at Wisconsin and Stanford Universities Schools’ of Medicine.  That’s good enough for me – this guy knows his stuff, puts it across in a really simple, easy to understand manner AND he’s a thoroughly nice person.  Perfect way to learn!

(Me and Bruce Lipton)

The implications of his and other research suggest that… our genetics and DNA do not control our biology; rather that our genes and DNA are controlled by signals coming from outside the cell.

And these signals are partly the energetic messages which arise from either our positive or our negative thoughts.

Because we can consciously choose how we perceive our world, we can choose whether our thoughts are negative or positive. The energetic messages that these two types of thought will send out, will obviously be very different and therefore differ in how they affect our cellular make-up, or biology.

Once we learn how to control our thinking, we get to choose how we feel about the world, which has an effect on our genetic make-up. If we chose to think positively about the world and ourselves, this could in turn help us to make better decisions about our lives and how we live them– including whether or not we want to be a genius!

So, when you’ve finished reading ‘The Genius in All of Us’, move on to the ‘Biology of Belief’ by Bruce Lipton, or vice versa.  If you don’t want to read, then watch Bruce’s stuff which is posted on my youtube channel in the ‘favourites’ section.  http://www.youtube.com/user/TheLisAllenTUBE?feature=mhum#p/a

If, as a result of reading this, you decide to become a genius, remember, you read it here first!!Happy New Year – Happy New Life
