Can we escape from our biology and become more evolved?

Neuroplasticity challenges the idea that brain...

My blog today is written from a place of seeing the pain that some people close to me are going through……..love and light to them.

Can we escape from our biology and become more evolved? – To coin a very well known phrase “YES WE CAN”

Why is it that when 2 factory workers sit side by side and are exposed to the same carcinogenic chemicals for 20 years that one manifests cancer and the other doesn’t? Maybe, just maybe, there is some kind of internal order at work that supersedes the  continual environmental exposure to harmful chemicals which are known to genetically alter tissue. Is it possible that managing our own internal environment, regardless of the external environment we can maintain or change our genes?

There is a growing body of studies & evidence that points to the effect of stress on our bodies and it points to the fact that most species live in a primitive state of survival. This limits our evolution as the chemicals of stress alter our internal state and pull the trigger of cellular breakdown thus chronic long term stress weakens our bodies. Over a period of time we begin to like and cannot shake the internal state of turmoil and we rely on the chemical state that drives us to experience confusion, unhappiness, aggression even depression etc.

So, why do we cling to relationships or jobs that that logically no longer work for us? If it is the conditions of our job that we dislike so much, why don’t we just get another one? If there is something in our personal life that causes us to suffer, why don’t we change it? why does changing ourselves and our conditions in life seem so hard?

The answer to those questions are that we choose to remain in the same circumstances because we become addicted to the emotional state they produce and the chemicals that arouse that state of being. Is change easy? For most people I would say the answer to that is no which is why some people choose to stay in situations that produce the kind of troubled states of mind that plague them for their entire lives – Ouch, that’s gotta hurt!  People choose this state of ‘ being stuck’ partly because of genetics and partly because a part of their brain has become hardwired by their repeated thoughts and reactions that limits their vision of what is possible. Everyone probably knows someone that isn’t happy unless they are unhappy !

When it comes to evolution, change is the only element that is universal, or consistent to all species on earth. To evolve is to change by adapting to the environment. Our environment as human beings is everything that makes up our lives. You know, all those complex circumstances that involve us, our loved ones, social status, where we live, what we do for a living, how we react to those around us & even the times we live in.

When we change something in our life, we have to make it different than it would be if we left it alone. To change is to become different, it means that we are no longer who we used to be. We have modified how we think, what we do, what we say, how we act and who we were being. Personal change takes an intentional act of will, and it usually means that something was making us uncomfortable enough to want to do things differently. To evolve is to overcome the conditions in our life by changing something about ourselves.

We have an innate ability to be neuroplastic – the ability to rewire and create new neural circuits to make substantial changes in the quality of our lives. Our ability to be neuroplastic is equivalent  to our ability to change our minds, to change ourselves and to change our perception of the world around us; that is, our reality. In order to accomplish this we have to change how the brain automatically and habitually works. When you effect neuroplasticity your brain has permanently changed; it neurologically tracked a new way to fire off circuits, by making new neurological patterns that work in a different pattern.

Here is a great example… what do you see when you first look at this image? Now, look at it again and what do you see?

Maybe you first saw a candlestick or maybe you saw 2 people looking at each other !

What you first see in the form of a picture will be what is the most familiar pattern in the shape you are looking at. Just above your ears, the temporal lobes (the brain’s center for decoding & recognsing objects) locks in a memory. The picture activates a few hundred million neurological circuits, which fire in a unique sequence and pattern throughout specific parts of your brain, and you are reminded of a candlestick or 2 people looking at each other – cool !

So, going back to neuroplasticity,  what if you saw the candlestick and I told you to no longer see that object and to see 2 people looking at each other instead. For you to accomplish that feat, your frontal lobe would have to force your brain to “cool off” the circuits that are related to candlesticks and reorganise it’s circuitary to imagine 2 people looking at each other instead. The ability to make the brain forgo it’s habitual internal wiring and fire in new patterns and combinations is how neuroplasticity allows us to change.

Breaking the habit of thinking, doing, feeling, perceiving or behaving is what allows you to see the world and see yourself differently. You change your mind by altering the brain’s typical firing pattern and by strengthening new chains of brain cell connections, and thus who you are has changed as well.  Umm, does this then mean that change, neuroplasticity and evolution all have similar meanings?

Wow that was Miasmic!

Miasms are energetic tendencies which predispose an individual towards manifesting particular illnesses. It is not a disease, it is the potential for a disease. Most are inherited or acquired & are the root cause of all chronic diseases & contributing factor toward many acute illnesses. In chronic conditions the vital forces and recuperative powers of the body have been profoundly disturbed.

Miasms may be acquired as a result of an infectious agent. They reside in the subtle bodies until their latent toxic potential is released into the cellular level of the body where disruptive changes or illness may manifest. They weaken the natural body defences in particular areas, creating a tendency toward manifesting different types of illness at a later stage.

Planetary miasms – held in the collective consciousness of the ethers.

Acquired miasms – result of acute of infectious diseases.

Inherited miasms – stored in the cellular memory of individuals. These place the organism in an energy state of potential system breakdown or illness susceptibility. They tend to impede the flow of life force into human bio-energetic system.

There are 4 basic inherited tendencies:

1)     Psora – produces irritation, inflammation, congestion & hypersensitivity

2)     Sycosis – (gonorrhoeal) leads to infiltrations, indurations & growths – cellular growth

3)     Syphilis – tends toward granulation, degeneration & ulceration – sore not healing

4)     Tubercular – tends toward tubercles, fibrosis, discharge & suppuration.

There are 5 modern acquired tendencies:

1)     Sensitivity to petrochemicals & synthetic drugs

2)     Sensitivity to radiation

3)     Sensitivity to heavy metals

4)     Sensitivity to vibrational remedies

5)     Sensitivity to vaccinations

Retroactive (acquired) inheritance factors

These are actually resonances of things that activate or aggravate miasms i.e. from previous illnesses such as chicken pox or infections, contraceptives, medications or circumstances. Not only can illness related symptoms be produced but certain viruses DNA may incorporate itself into the chromosomes of the human host and theoretically be passed on to future generations.

Future Generations

Miasms represent an energetic pathway by which events in the life of a parent can be transmitted to their offspring. By our unwillingness to handle or defuse current stressors we set up new family tendencies.

Planetary Miasms

These are miasms of our collective consciousness expressed by things like: The great depression, the holocaust, Things are so bad, self deprecation & other similar expressions & behaviours. They reflect blockages in conscious growth that mankind has not yet overcome. Our ability to resist subtle and overt attacks by microorganisms & noxious substances is a reflection of how connected we feel to our higher selves and God or The Field or whatever your belief system.

Miasms represent key issues or learning experiences which impede humanity’s progress in it’s struggle toward spiritual evolution & enlightenment.

In Kinesiology we have a finger mode dealing with something that is a triggering inheritance factor activity which we use to clear the energetic imbalance because when supressed, weakness due to inherited factors go deeper into the system.

What the “bleep” is Nutrigenomics?

It is now accepted that a person’s state-of-health arises from the dynamic interaction of environmental factors with his or her genetic uniqueness. These factors can positively or negatively impact the extent to which people will realize their genetic potential.

Nutrition & Healthy Genomics, Proteomics, and Metabolomics
It has been demonstrated that nutritional factors have a major influence on healthy gene expression (genomics), protein synthesis (proteomics), and metabolism (metabolomics), as pictured below. As a result, a new patient-centered health care is emerging that will rely upon nutrition and other modifiable lifestyle factors to help people achieve optimal genetic expression.

The Future is here

The specific fields of genome health nutrigenomics and genome health nutrigenetics are emerging as important new research areas because it is becoming increasingly evident that (a) damage to genome is the most fundamental disease; (b) risk for developmental and degenerative disease increases with DNA damage which in turn is dependent on nutritional status and (c) optimal dietary intake and tissue concentration of micronutrients for prevention of genome damage is dependent on genetic polymorphisms that alter function of genes involved directly or indirectly in uptake and metabolism of micronutrients and those genes required for DNA repair and DNA replication.

Development of dietary patterns, functional foods and supplements that are designed to improve genome health maintenance in humans with specific genetic backgrounds may provide an important contribution to a new optimum health strategy based on the diagnosis and individualised nutritional prevention of genome instability.

The most exciting thing is that we can now purchase Nutrigenomic based nutritional products that are specifically formulated for Anti-Aging. If you are interested in more information about this, review the AM/PM product information on www.youthspring.com.au
