What I'm Reading

Before I get to this - which is waaayyy different than what you're expecting - I want to apologize for not posting a blog yesterday. I've been battling my computer for days - you know, the one that Best Buy had for weeks and I finally got back on Wednesday? I'm trying to restore all the software that I previously had on it - some of which has expired licenses so now I'm trying to figure out how to get the content open without actually having the software. And, I couldn't get the restore function on my external hard drive to work.

But...I'm now winning the battle and while I'm not completely back up and running, I'm much closer and should be within an hour or so.

Anyway, what I'm reading now is not a romance, it's not even fiction. It's by a cell bioligist who has proven some amazing things about our cells. And he's dis-proving many long held beliefs. Like, we're stuck with who we are because of our genetics. I'm not very far into the book, but from what I understand he's actually been able to prove it is possible to change our DNA with our thoughts!!

I've always been fascinated by quantum physics and this book is along those same lines. I thought about posting the Roxanne St. Claire book that I finished earlier in this week and decided to go with the truth...What I'm Reading. Not...What I Read. LOL

Who know, it might interest one of you too. Here's the cover and the blurb from Amazon.

The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter, & Miracles (Hardcover)

Product Description
With more than 100,000 copies sold of his self-published book, The Biology of Belief, Bruce Lipton teams up with Hay House to bring his message to an even wider audience. This book is a groundbreaking work in the field of new biology, and it will forever change how you think about thinking. Through the research of Dr. Lipton and other leading-edge scientists, stunning new discoveries have been made about the interaction between your mind and body and the processes by which cells receive information. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology, that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our thoughts. Using simple language, illustrations, humor, and everyday examples, he demonstrates how the new science of Epigenetics is revolutionizing our understanding of the link between mind and matter and the profound effects it has on our personal lives and the collective life of our species.

About the Author
Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. is an internationally recognized authority in bridging science and spirit and a leading voice in new biology. A cell biologist by training, he taught Cell Biology at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine, and later performed pioneering studies at Stanford University’s School of Medicine. He has been a guest speaker on dozens of TV and radio shows, as well as keynote presenter for national conferences.

I hope it's a fantastic weekend for everyone!!

Much peace and love,

Sounds like a pretty interesting book. I'm currently reading The Phoenix Charm by Helen Scott Taylor. Just started it yesterday, so I'm not very far in yet, but I'll really liking it.

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend! Mine will be spent getting my bookshelves in order and making room for my new elliptical machine.

I'm currently reading THE LOST, an anthology with "J.D. Robb" and others. I'm on the last novella now.

Alannah? I think my brain broke. Quantum physics? Cell/DNA epigenetics? Owwww. Even so, it does sound a bit fascinating. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it once you've finished. :D

Woo-hoo, Liza!! Way to go on getting yourself an eliptical machine. I mean, I know it's hard, but good for you for taking care of yourself.

Silver - the coolest thing about this book is how easy it is to read. He's spent so many years as a medical professor, that he's really great at speaking in terms anyone can understand.

But I'll let y'all know what I learn when I'm finished.
