The Biology of Belief
Fascinating Connection between Thought and Health,
October 22, 2006
Why do spontaneous remissions occur? Why do you feel terrible
when depressed? What is actually controlling your health? Why do
you feel so good when "in love" or when you feel
In this groundbreaking lecture Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. explores
the reason why our beliefs influence our health. Can changing
your mind change the way your body responds to illness? He also
explores epigenetics, the gap between quantum mechanics and
biology, the chemistry of stress, the healing force of love, the
immune system and a variety of emotional states.
If you watched "What the `Bleep' do We Know" and you
had more questions, Dr. Bruce H. Lipton provides a deeper
understanding of the fascinating connection between how we think
and the state of our health. On this three CD set he explores:
The Central Dogma of Biology
The Human Genome Project
Proteins and the Nature of Life
The 3 Sources of Biological Dysfunction
The Function of the Cell Membrane
How the Cell Controls Behavior
How Perception Influences Behavior
Love and Fear
Perception and the Immune System
Conscious and Subconscious behaviors
The Importance of Fetal Environment
Childhood Brain Development
Changing your Subconscious Programming
Freeing Yourself from the Past
It only takes a few observations in your own life to convince
you that love heals and fear and hate destroy. Look at how you
feel when experiencing a variety of emotions, take notes or
write a journal. Soon, you will start to desire much more peace,
love and emotional connection as you realize you can literally
destroy yourself "physically" with negative thoughts.
We need the right foods, nutrients and supplements too, but
learning to think positively helps to balance out all your
"The New Biology of Belief" is one of the next steps
in human understanding where we take full charge of our health
by learning how to think in ways that encourage health. This
empowering 3-CD set captures a variety of spiritual and medical
ideas and condenses them into a workable theory for advanced
health and well-being.

Open Your Mind, Open Your Life: A Little...
= Illuminating your life's path with wisdom
Reviewer: The Rebecca Review
An Iris represents faith, hope, wisdom and valor. Not
only is the cover beautiful and filled with flowers, the entire
books is beautifully illustrated in an ornate fashion. Almost
every page has a beautiful border and then the quotes are in
black ink and easy to read on the cream pages.
There are two books by Taro Gold with the same name. This is
the first edition or tiny version: 96 pages; Dimensions (in
inches): 0.49 x 3.76 x 3.28. Lest anyone think I am reviewing
the same book, the last one was 132 pages ; Dimensions (in
inches): 0.52 x 5.30 x 5.36.
After finding this version, I think the smaller book is my
new favorite. Not only is it much cuter, you can easily put it
in a small purse or keep it in the pocket of your favorite coat.
I was looking for a copy of the original book for a relative
and found the smaller book. This is an example of when less is
more. For some reason, I enjoyed reading this book more than the
larger version. Perhaps it seems easier to absorb the
information in smaller bites.
Some of my favorite quotes:
“Become a master of words.”
”To change our lives, we must first change our minds.”
“The surest path is one dedicated to a greater cause.”
I believe these must be the words of Taro Gold who writes
extensively for Buddhist publications. Taro Gold has spent much
of his life living overseas. He has traveled to over thirty
countries and has lived in Australia, Spain and Japan. His
thoughts reflect deep contemplation over life’s purpose and
how to live on this planet to encourage happiness in those
For instance, he says: “Do something today to improve
someone else’s life.” This could be easily accomplished by
buying a book for all your friends and relatives for “just
because” presents. I’m sending this to a relative on Monday
who I think will just love the mini version.
Often I think we shelter ourselves from the wisdom of other
cultures, religions and when we are more open to reading
selections and thoughts, we can then deepen our own beliefs and
add a beautiful new meaning to our lives. There are many
universal truths and many are presented in this tiny book.
I love the page about achieving goals and the list of how
negative actions arise from one or more of fourteen categories.
The story about the stranded starfish being saved by a little
boy is a beautiful way to illustrate hope.
It does seem we have been put on this planet to test our
souls. This is a beautiful book which provides guidance and
hope. I found reading the quotes to be a healing experience.
Open Your Mind, Open Your Life is calming
to the soul and will encourage confidence, optimism, good
judgment and courage.

Secret Gardens Notecards
Delicate Gardens, October 21, 2005
The photographs by San Francisco photographer, Thea Schrak,
include four images of garden scenes that range from a Japanese
garden to a Tropical Garden in Hawaii. The soft-edged images
capture the delicate beauty and ethereal quality of the trees and
While viewing these cards you can almost imagine yourself walking
through a Japanese garden or wandering down the trail of a
Victorian garden complete with roses cascading from a high wall.
Water is a feature in all the cards as it mirrors the moments and
captures a subtle elegance.
The cards are high quality and the white envelopes have a nice
gold scroll on the back. They come in a nice flip-top box with
Velcro seal to keep the cards all in order.
Thea Schrak's hand-colored images have been featured in journals
and on address books. Now you can introduce your friends to this
artist by sending them a card. I used two of the cards to make a
customized CD insert. The pictures made my efforts look very
professional and somewhat romantic.
Rick Jarow Alchemy of Abundance
Creative Visualizations through Guided Meditation, October
"The core practice here, akin to the alchemical distillation
of gold, is known as "manifestation," bringing the
deepest, purist expression of your life into visible form."
~Rick Jarow, Ph.D.
Rick Jarow, Ph.D. teaches an opening to the realm of inner vision
in order to manifest abundance in the outer world. He believes
that what we focus on creates our life, thought by thought.
The book chapters include:
What is Abundance?
Gateways to the Temple of Beauty
Challenges to the Alchemy of Abundance
Creating a Lifestyle of Abundance
The Mandala of Manifestation
Creating an Abundant Society
The guided meditations are comforting and infused with beautiful
music which makes them even more appealing. Rick Jarow opens up an
inner world where you literally can enjoy inner landscapes that
lead you on a visual journey.
The CD includes sessions about your body, money, machines, home,
creativity, organization, other, depth, journey, vocation, vision,
dissolution and return. You can either go through the entire CD
all at once and spend about 80 minutes on an inner voyage or spend
about 5-6 minutes on each section. This is perfect if you enjoy a
daily meditation session or you could use this a refocusing moment
any time of the day.
A journal is recommended to write down any ideas or thought that
appear spontaneously. Rick Jarow shows a beautiful depth of
creativity and awakens the inner child who enjoys imagining. It is
amazing what appears as you listen and visualize. Guided
meditations have never been this fun. You truly do receive
guidance from your soul throughout this beautiful gift. Some of
the things Rick says are actually pretty funny and I'm working on
"imagining what I could do with too much money if I had too
much money." That was a fun thought.
The "Body" section was interesting. When you enter the
realms in your mind, you see a word on a door. When you do through
the door, you imagine all sorts of things inside the room and then
when you leave, guides (you imagine two people) give you
something. My guides gave me a exercise bike, which must have
meant I need to ride the bike more and work on that aspect of my
exercise routine. You never know what the guides are going to give
you, but something spontaneously appears.
When I left the realm of machines, the guides gave me what I
thought was a book, then it started spinning and turned into a
clock face with fast spinning hands. Now that was interesting and
must have some deeper meaning. During the home section, I
envisioned steam and aromas lifting off a stovetop and then at the
end was handed a boiling pot, but instead of steam, coins were
rising and falling out into a mist.
In creativity I envisioned a river of book pages and words and at
the end, the guides gave me a swimsuit that looked like it had the
shimmering scales of a fish on the fabric. I assume that meant:
"Do something creative where you feel like a fish in water or
During the organization section I imagined a dining room table and
then a spinning lotus flower that lifted off the table and into
the hands of the guides and then they handed it to me as it turned
from a flower into a spinning pottery candlestick that turned into
a gorgeous gold candelabra with beautiful burning flames on the
top of each candle.
In the realm of depth, I was given a ring with a live butterfly
sitting as the "gem" on the ring and throughout there
were all these images of butterflies moving through a
metamorphosis and emerging from cocoons.
"Journey" had stunning imagery of mountains and retreat
locations with the guides giving me a book of music notes that
flew up into the sky and turned into doves. By this time, I
couldn't wait to figure out what I would see next.
"Vocation" and "Vision" were equally
intriguing. I had to light a candle in the room of vocation
because at first it was mysteriously dark like I had walked into a
nightscape with a forest, but soon I walked through the forest and
noticed a sunrise in the distance. The guides were floating above
me and poured sparkling water into my mouth as I was looking up at
In the last section, I was handed a basket of whole-wheat rolls.
What I found most intriguing within the entire session was the
heart I was handed in one section that was gold and on a necklace
and there were little tears (or raindrops?) dropping out of an
invisible center. "Dissolution" was the most fun with an
underwater world where I was a mermaid one minute and a bird
soaring above the ocean the next, but the bird was like my real
self with wings.
Not only are you enjoying an imaginative journey, you also can use
this meditative space to breathe more deeply. I emerged happy and
delighted by this experience and the book is more of a companion
to the CD and I think the CD is the experience!
I loved this for the brilliant level of creativity. 100 stars! You
have to try this to awaken the answers to questions that could
change your life. If you enjoy archetypes or mythology, this makes
you feel like you have become a mythical being living in your own
Writers and poets may find this especially healing and it
could inspire poetry or even imaginative novels.
