Bruce Lipton was born on

and went on to become a college professor of anatomy. He did
research on muscular dystrophy and muscle cells and discovered
how perception played a role in the behavior of genes.

Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter, & Miracles"

by the publishing giant Hay House. It won the USA Book News
award for Best Science Book in 2006. In this groundbreaking
book, Lipton shares his research in cell biology. He explains
how he discovered that DNA does not control our bodies and
thinking but factors outside the cell controls DNA. He
discovered that thoughts and beliefs can change DNA. The
implications of his research are that we are capable of
changing our DNA by changing our thoughts and beliefs. The
personal development advice offered in this book is backed up
by his years of in-depth scientific research.
Wisdom of Your Cells: How Your Beliefs Control Your Biology"
was published in 2006 as an audio book. In it, Bruce Lipton
explains his work in a manner that is engaging and easy to
understand. It is targeted towards the average person who is
interested in personal development advice, quantum physics,
consciousness, and evolution of the human mind and spirit.
Lipton explains that cell membranes are like tiny television
receivers that pick up signals from our thoughts and the
universe in general. These outside influences govern how our
cells, DNA, and genes express themselves. He further teaches
listeners that cells have a far greater intelligence than ever
imagined by science. This knowledge combined with taking steps
to use it wisely could hold the key to longevity, vitality,
More and more books are becoming
available as ebooks and audibles.
• "Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive
Future and a Way to Get There From Here"
was published in 2009
and is a book, ebook, and audio book. In this work, Lipton
compares spontaneous and miraculous cures from illnesses by
individuals to what is happening on a planetary scale right
now. He theorizes the planet and humankind are going through
the process of spontaneous evolution. Lipton explains each
person acts as a stem cell for humanity, and with each
individual awakening, humanity as a whole becomes a little
more enlightened. Rather than personal development advice,
this book offers planetary development advice and insight.
Bruce Lipton collaborated with Steve Bhaerman, a political
philosopher, on this book. They covered concepts such as the
old beliefs in DNA controlled biology, how mind affects
matter, how beliefs shape our culture, and how individuals
affect the evolution of our world.
