The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles is a book that brings attention to the amazing new awareness that is currently rewriting the science of biology and medicine. Until recently, conventional science has held that genes control life, a concept known as genetic determinism.
While this disempowering belief is still
held as truth by the mainstream public, leading edge research in the
exciting new field of epigenetics reveals a completely different
truth. Genes do not control life. It is the environment, and more
specifically, our perception of the environment that controls gene
activity. In the end, it comes down to a simple case of “mind over
matter” in controlling the fate of our lives.
The membrane proteins that “read” and
respond to these environmental signals are called receptors.
The reasoning behind my transformation
from scientist to spiritual scientist is described in following
excerpt from the
Biology of Belief.
The conclusions I offer in this Epilogue
are also based upon my scientific training— they do not spring from
a leap of religious faith. I know conventional scientists may shy
away from them, because they involve Spirit, but I am confident in
presenting them for two reasons.
The new science of the magical mem-Brain
in conjunction with the principles of
quantum physics offer the
simplest explanation that accounts for the science of not only
allopathic medicine, but also for the philosophy and practice of
complementary medicine and spiritual healing as well. Also, after so
many years of personally applying the science I have outlined in
this book, I can attest to its power to change lives.
But I ran wild-eyed into the medical library because the nature of the cell’s membrane that was “downloaded” into my awareness in the wee hours of the morning convinced me that we are immortal, spiritual beings who exist separately from our bodies. I had heard an undeniable inner voice informing me that I was leading a life based not only on the false premise that genes control biology, but also on the false premise that we end when our physical bodies die.
I had spent years studying molecular
control mechanisms within the physical body and at that astounding
moment came to realize that the protein “switches” that control life
are primarily turned on and off by signals from the environment… the
It is only with a drug like
that they are able to spell relief.
However, I truly believe that only when Spirit and Science are reunited will we be afforded the means to create a better world.
