Personal Liberation and the Art of Self-Sabotage

Dr. Bruce Lipton is a cellular biologist that has studied the power of the subconscious mind and discovered that DNA and genes can be turned on and off based on how our mind works. With over 3.5 trillion volts all the way up to 70 trillion volts in total cellular capacity, our brain and body are constantly working through electrical messaging to create our reality through every cell in our body.

Dr. Bruce Lipton on Brain Power

We must first understand that:

“There is no problem, and therefore there is no solution.”

Zen Proverb

If there is no problem, you ask, what’s the actual issue?

“The whole trouble is just our failure to realize there is no problem.”

Bruce Lee in “Striking Thoughts”

If what Dr. Bruce Lipton, the way of Zen, and Bruce Lee says is true, then it must also be true that we create EVERYTHING that happens either through attention to something or the opposite: a lack thereof.

Our subconscious brain is committed to making the reality that we want and believe to be true, actually true. With our brain subconsciously charging up to 70 trillion volts of electricity through the cell membranes, it only makes sense that what we believe will actually be made true in reality.

So how do we change? Where do we start? Glad you asked.

Personal liberation starts with you. The art of self-sabotage is an art we are all familiar with. We sabotage because we don’t know better.

Now you know better.
