50 Bruce Lipton Quotes


“I was exhilarated by the new realization that I could change the character of my life by changing my beliefs. I was instantly energized because I realized that there was a science-based path that would take me from my job as a perennial “victim” to my new position as “co-creator” of my destiny.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Every person perceives the world differently. So essentially, there are six billion human versions of reality on this planet, each perceiving its own truth.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Each of our cells is a living entity, and the main thing that influences them is our blood. If I open my eyes in the morning and my beautiful partner is in front of me, my perception causes a release of oxytocin, dopamine, growth hormones – all of which encourage the growth and health of my cells. But if I see a saber tooth tiger, I’m going to release stress hormones which change the cells to a protection mode. People need to realize that their thoughts are more primary than their genes, because the environment, which is influenced by our thoughts, controls the genes.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Beliefs and thoughts alter cells in your body.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“You may consider yourself an individual, but as a cell biologist, I can tell you that you are in truth a cooperative community of approximately fifty trillion single-celled citizens.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Recently, results of the Human Genome Project have shattered one of Science’s fundamental core beliefs, the concept of genetic determinism. We have been led to believe that our genes determine the character of our lives, yet new research surprisingly reveals that it is the character of our lives that controls our genes. Rather than being victims of our heredity, we are actually masters of our genome.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“You know why it’s hard to be happy — it’s because we refuse to let go of the things that make us sad.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“We are today beginning to see work by very reputable scientists that says the universe is created by our observations. It is not a coincidence; we are actively involved in physically shaping the world that we experience.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Only when Spirit and Science are reunited will we be afforded the means to a better world.” ~ Bruce Lipton

Bruce Lipton Quotes

“The moment you change your perception is the moment you rewrite the chemistry of your body.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Your children’s genes reflect only their potential, not their destiny. It is up to you to provide the environment that allows them to develop to their highest potential.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Life has everything in it. But you only see what your perception allow you to see.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“As soon as you start to tell yourself in your perception that you can’t do something anymore, then your biological system will adjust to prove you right. You will not do what you think you can’t do.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“When two people become entangled, one person will conform to the energy of the other person. When one of them is a healer whose cells are vibrating at a higher level, the client’s cells become entangled, and their energy is lifted. That’s why that old saying, “physician heal thyself,” is so important, even though most don’t understand it: If the physician’s energy is going to influence or, in scientific terms, “entrain” the patient’s, the doctor’s must be higher.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“It is far easier to be entertained by a reality TV than to participate in our own reality.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Your own beliefs are selecting your genes, and if you don’t have the right genes to handle the stress that your in, your belief will rewrite your genes in an effort to do so.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“The overuse of prescription drugs provides a vacation from personal responsibility.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Positive thoughts are a biological mandate for a happy, healthy life. In the words of Mahatma Gandhi: Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.” ~ Bruce Lipton

“Your perspective is always limited by how much you know. Expand your knowledge and you will transform your mind.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“I am the master of my genes, not the victim of them.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Just like a single cell, the character of our lives is determined not by our genes but by our responses to the environmental signals that propel life.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“People need to realize that their thoughts are more primary than their genes, because the environment, which is influenced by our thoughts, controls the genes.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“If I brought you down to the size of an individual cell so that you could see your body from that perspective, it would offer a whole new view of the world. When you looked back at yourself from that perspective you would not see yourself as a single entity. You would see yourself as a bustling community of more than 50 trillion individual cells.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“In reality, a cell is a biological mini-me compared to the human body. A cell has every biological system that you have.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“We are living in a world that is in the late stage of a Caterpillar. It is very important to let go of the old and start to gravitate to the new because we are leaving behind a world that is no longer sustainable and moving into a world in which we can thrive.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Human beings have a great capacity for sticking to false beliefs with great passion and tenacity.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Because we are not powerless biochemical machines, popping a pill every time we are mentally or physically out of tune is not the answer. Drugs and surgery are powerful tools when they are not overused, but the notion of simple drug fixes is fundamentally flawed. Every time a drug is introduced into the body to correct function A, it inevitably throws off function B, C, or D. It is not gene-directed hormones and neurotransmitters that control our bodies and our minds; our beliefs control our bodies, our minds, and thus our lives … Oh ye of little belief!” ~ Bruce Lipton

Bruce Lipton Quotes

living in harmony quote image

“Most illness is just stress from not living in harmony.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“If the brain expects that a treatment will work, it sends healing chemicals into the bloodstream, which facilitates that. That’s why the placebo effect is so powerful for every type of healing. And the opposite is equally true and equally powerful: When the brain expects that a therapy will not work, it doesn’t. It’s called the “nocebo” effect.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“We can control our lives by controlling our perceptions.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Through consciousness, our minds have the power to change our planet and ourselves. It is time we heed the wisdom of the ancient indigenous people and channel our consciousness and spirit to tend the garden and not destroy it.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Deism is the belief that nature and God are one and the same thing. If you study nature, you’re getting insights about God.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Here is the amazing thing: the caterpillar and the butterfly have the exact same DNA. They are the same organism but are receiving and responding to a different organizing signal.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Perhaps if more people realized that coupling in higher organisms is fundamentally about bonding, not only about the drive to reproduce, there would be less prejudice against homosexuality. In fact, homosexuality is natural and common in the animal kingdom. In a 2009 review of the scientific literature, University of California at Riverside biologists Nathan W. Bailey and Marlene Zuk, who advocate more study about the evolutionary impetus for homosexual behavior, state, “The variety and ubiquity of same-sex sexual behavior in animals is impressive; many thousands of instances of same-sex courtship, pair bonding and copulation have been observed in a wide range of species, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects, mollusks, and nematodes.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“The new physics provides a modern version of ancient spirituality. In a universe made out of energy, everything is entangled; everything is one.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Imagine a population of trillions of individuals living under one roof in a state of perpetual happiness. Such a community exists – it is called the healthy human body. Clearly cellular communities work better than human communities – there are no left out, “homeless” cells in our bodies. Unless of course, our cellular communities are in profound disharmony causing some cells to withdraw from cooperating with the community. Cancers essentially represent homeless, jobless cells that are living off the other cells in the community.” ~ Bruce Lipton

“A miraculous healing awaits this planet once we accept our new responsibility to collectively tend the Garden, rather than fight over the turf.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“When we truly recognize that our beliefs are that powerful-we hold the key to freedom.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“We are conscious co-creators in the evolution of life. We have free will. And we have choices. Consequently our success is based on our choices, which are, in turn, totally dependent on our awareness.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“A cell is a “programmable chip” whose behavior and genetic activity are primarily controlled by environmental signals, not genes.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“To fully thrive, we must not only eliminate the stressors but also actively seek joyful, loving, fulfilling lives that stimulate growth processes.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“I see that White Light will only return to the planet when every human being recognizes every other human being as an individualized frequency of the White Light. As long as we keep eliminating or devaluing other human beings we have decided we don’t like, ie., destroying frequencies of the spectrum, we will not be able to experience the White Light. Our job is to protect and nurture each human frequency so that the White Light can return.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“Drugging out symptoms does not solve the problem, it helps us ignore it – until the vehicle breaks down.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“A renaissance in cellular biology has recently revealed the molecular mechanisms by which thoughts and perceptions directly influence gene activity and cell behavior…Energy psychology, through its ability to rapidly identify and reprogram limiting misconceptions, represents the most powerful and effective process to enhance physical and emotional well being.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“The separation between us and them or between us and Nature that we so vividly experience in our reality is an illusion held in place by our beliefs.” ~ Bruce Lipton

“Nature is based on harmony. So it says if we want to survive and become more like nature, then we actually have to understand that it’s cooperation versus competition.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“What quantum physics teaches us is that everything we thought was physical is not physical.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“The fact that science led me to spiritual insight is appropriate because the latest discoveries in physics and cell research are forging new links between the worlds of Science and Spirit. These realms were split apart in the days of Descartes centuries ago. However, I truly believe that only when Spirit and Science are reunited will we be afforded the means to a better world.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“The Universe is one indivisible, dynamic whole in which energy and matter are so deeply entangled it is impossible to consider them as independent elements.” ~ Bruce Lipton


“The trillion-dollar pharmaceutical industry puts its research money into the search for magic bullets in the form of chemicals because pills mean money. If energy healing could be made into tablet form, drug manufacturers would get interested quickly. Instead, they identify deviations in physiology and behavior that vary from some hypothetical norm as unique disorders or dysfunctions, and then they educate the public about the dangers of these menacing disorders. Of course, the over-simplified symptomology used in defining the dysfunctions prevalent in drug company advertisements has viewers convinced they are afflicted by that particular malady. “Do you worry? Worry is a primary symptom of ‘medical condition’ called anxiety disorder. Stop your worry. Tell your doctor you want Addictazac, the new passion-pink drug.” ~ Bruce Lipton
