Bruce Lipton shared this information at a seminar he conducted. He said the way babies learn between birth and age six is based on their brain wave patterns as measured by EEGs. Babies operate in the brain wave states of delta and theta. Clinical hypnotherapists refer to this as the hypnogogic state. This is the state that the client's brain must reach so that they are susceptible to suggestion.
This means a baby is being programmed by everything that goes on around it. The baby is making the perceptions and behaviors of his or her parents its own. These then become the baby's fundamental beliefs and attitudes about life. So...if you have a baby, keep in mind that what you say and do has an impact.
