There is a quantum shift happening throughout biochemistry, physiology and biology. It demonstrates that environment (which includes thoughts, feelings and intentions) directly affects DNA, not the other way around.
"The difference between these two is significant because this fundamental belief called genetic determinism literally means that our lives, which are defined as our physical, physiological and emotional behavioral traits, are controlled by the genetic code. This kind of belief system provides a visual picture of people being victims: If the genes control our life function, then our lives are being controlled by things outside of our ability to change them. This leads to victimization that the illnesses and diseases that run in families are propagated through the passing of genes associated with those attributes. Laboratory evidence shows this is not true," says Dr. Bruce Lipton.
He is joined by Carlo Ventura, MD, who showed that even non-stem cells can be reprogrammed back to their neutral state where they can become any other cell type. He used magnetic fields to accomplish this--the very same magnetic bio-field our bodies live in that can be affected and directed by the mind: "It’s like a time machine. You’re reprogramming somehow backward with these cells to an uncertain state in which any kind of decision is somehow possible; even the decision to become virtually any kind of cell of the organism. And just think about the tremendous potential of this discovery."
These concepts lie at the crux of what quantum living is: we are all infinite beings, capable of directly changing the physical world around us. The only block to this is our beliefs that we cannot.
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: What is resisted persists (such as disease, discomfort, depression). The key is allowance, as taught for thousands of years by Zen masters. By allowing everything in life, it becomes possible to choose something different for your body and your life. Use our Meditation Elixir, Zen, to help amplify allowance in your life.
Thought-directed DNA Manipulation
According to the Institute of HeartMath in Boulder Creek, California, epigenetics encompasses far more than just DNA, our environment and life experience. After two decades of study, the researchers discovered factors like love and appreciation or anxiety and anger also influence a person's blueprint. In one experiment, select participants were able to change DNA with positive mental states.
"An individual holding three DNA samples was directed to generate heart coherence--a beneficial state of mental, emotional and physical balance and harmony--with the aid of a HeartMath technique that utilizes heart breathing and intentional positive emotions. The individual succeeded, as instructed, to intentionally and simultaneously unwind two of the DNA samples to different extents and leave the third unchanged."
Control group volunteers who had low heart coherence were unable to alter the DNA.
If we want to nourish our bodies at a cellular level (and not promote disease), the institute recommends an abundant diet of quantum nutrients. When we are stressed or negative, our biological energy reserves are diverted from the important task of regenerating and repairing the body. We can counteract this cellular starvation by focusing on genuine states of care, appreciation and love. These positive emotions enhance our energy system and feed the body, even down to the level of DNA. HeartMath calls such positive feelings "quantum nutrients".
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: To maintain a good flow of quantum nutrients into your body and mind, use Clean Sweep! That's what it's for. It instantly neutralizes negative energy states both within and without the body, including any space with negative human emotions, EMF, anger, fear, etc.
New Study Confirms Thoughts Change Genes
A new study by researchers in Wisconsin, Spain, and France reports the first evidence of specific molecular changes in the body following a period of intensive mindfulness practice. The study investigated the effects of a day of intensive mindfulness practice in a group of experienced meditators, compared to a group of untrained control subjects who engaged in quiet non-meditative activities. After eight hours of mindfulness practice, the meditators showed a range of genetic and molecular differences, including altered levels of gene-regulating machinery and reduced levels of pro-inflammatory genes, which in turn correlated with faster physical recovery from a stressful situation.
"To the best of our knowledge, this is the first paper that shows rapid alterations in gene expression within subjects associated with mindfulness meditation practice," says study author Richard J. Davidson, founder of the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds and the William James and Vilas Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
In the simplest terms, this means that we need to change the way we think if we are to heal, for example, cancer. "The function of the mind is to create coherence between our beliefs and the reality we experience," says Dr. Bruce Lipton, epigeneticist. "What that means is that your mind will adjust the body’s biology and behavior to fit with your beliefs. If you’ve been told you'll die in six months and your mind believes it, you most likely will die in six months. That's called the nocebo effect, the result of a negative thought, which is the opposite of the placebo effect, where healing is mediated by a positive thought."
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Changing basic beliefs and thought matrixes requires a certain level of self-awareness and mindfulness in daily living. Enhance these qualities with our Deep Insight Meditation Elixir.
NEW from Subtle Energy Solutions: Subtle Energy Infused Himalayan Salt Lamps
This new application of subtle energy infusion into a Himalyan Salt Lamp has catapulted the natural benefits of salt lamps to a whole new level. We have infused the lamps with harmonizing, stablizing subtle energies that greatly heighten the similar existing properties of the lamps, making the experience of the lamps a palpable and impressive one. Put one in the office or TV room to neutralize EMF, or "electro-smog". Put one in the bedroom for a soothing night light and negative ions for a restful sleep.
These lamps are approximately 12 inches tall, direct from Nepal, include an off-on rocker switch on an A/C cord, 4-watt light bulb, and a wooden base, only $29.95. (MORE INFO)
Clean Sweep Goes Family Size!
Our popular anti-negativity spray, Clean Sweep, is now available in a 16 oz. size, adding to the 8 oz. and 2 oz. travel sizes. We've also posted a conference call about Clean Sweep as discussed by Dr. Kronn, the inventor, and several doctors and naturopaths. They provide their clinical experiences and measurements using the Clean Sweep in their practices. Fascinating stuff!
Clean Sweep Spray cleans any kind of negative energy. Tangible energetic emanations linger in the environment from all kinds of sources, including distress and suffering, illness, depression, anxiety, trauma, difficult relationships, and negative thinking--as well as from electrical devices, such televisions, computers, cell phones, microwave ovens and wi-fi. Few people are aware of the fact that negative energetic emanations can affect healing time, state of mind, family dynamics, and mental focus. (MORE INFO)
