We used to think that we are at the mercy of our DNA, that genes created disease. We assumed that if someone in our family havw died of heart disease, then we have pretty hight chance of also developing heart disease.
But Science of Epigenetic tells us that it’s not the gene that creates disease but the environment, which is programming our genes to create disease. It is both internal and external environment which creates it .
External environment -cigarettes smoke or pesticides .
Internal environment- the one outside our cells. By saying internal, which is also called within our body, I mean emotions which are chemical feedbacks, the end product is experience we have in our external environment, that produce the emotions. Internal chemistry can signal genes to either turn on or turn off.
Turn on – up – regulating or producing an increased expression of the gene.
Turn off – down- regulating ,or producing a decreased expression of the gene.
Gene itself doesn’t physically change, the expression of the gene changes, and that expression is what matter the most ,because it affects our health and lives.
Today I’d love to show you and talk a little bit about the books which has helped me, while going through my journey .
In short I’ll introduce the ones I love the most and which gave me the most of knowledge and understanding. I have read them multiple times ,and each time I get more from them ,or should I say my understanding deeper.
Today I will start with Becoming Supernatural by Dr. Joe Dispenza.
Let me tell you in a few words, how important it is to practice and master the present moment which we also call eternal now.
If you ever been wanting to heal yourself, your body, create new experiences which would go beyond your imagination, then mastering the present moment, is where you should start.
Most people will understand the basic idea of what it is to be in the present moment, they know that they must be now and here, and not to think about the past or future. In the Becoming Supernatural, we are given a completely different concept of how to practice that.
“it’s going to require that you get beyond the physical world- including your body, your identity, and your environment- and even beyond time itself.”
We are told that by using this concept, we will be turning possibility into reality, and for me that statement, makes me want to practice that even more.
You will have to get out of your own way, we need to transcend the memory we hold of ourselves as an identity, and allow to be taken over by mystical experience, something much greater than you.
Our mind is a record of all your experiences, and what you have learned in the past.
Our experience creates emotions and also, they enhance brain circuity.
The stronger the emotions are in certain situations and events, the stronger the experience it leaves in your brain, if we keep maintaining those emotions, we will create a connection, and so with repetition of a thought, choice and behaviour, neurons fire and wire together and they will sustain a long-term relationship.

When you live in the stress, you simply live in the survival mode, stress hormones take over.
A primitive nervous system, called sympathetic nervous system start turning on the body and mobilize enormous amount of energy in response to the stressor.
The body automatically starts to tap into the resources it will need to deal with the danger.
Heart rate and respiratory rate increase, we can run, fight or hide. More energy is produced by raising glucose level which is released to the blood system.
Our immune system dials up and then dials down as adrenaline and cortisol flood the muscles, rush of energy is provided, so we can either escape or fend off the stressor.
Our hind brain takes over our rational forebrain, we then have less capacity to think creatively, and we rely on our instinct to instantly react.
Our large brain, makes us capable of thinking about our problems, reliving the past events or even forecast the future by thought alone.
Our body doesn’t know the difference, whether is past or future, the feeling you bring back, feels like it’s happening right now. Which shows us that, even thought it has happened in the past, the body feels like that’s what is happening now.

Becoming Supernatural by Dr. Joe Dispenza.
I have found an interesting article from Nature neuroscience and the subject of the article was the “Brain Adapts to Dishonesty” , I was scrolling through Since Open website ,looking for researches about neuro plasticity and came along this article ,short article but I would say eye opening ,at least for me , I have always been wondering about whether a lie and dishonesty are exactly the same things and I think they actually can be taken as such ,for a very long time I have been thinking that only because I don’t lie about the certain situation it doesn’t necessarily mean I’m being honest, many times I have been withdrawing the information which I thought are not important ,yet deep down I knew they could change a lot in certain situation. I still cant grasp my head around it and whatever to think that not telling the full story is lie or dishonesty but I’m sure that everyone will have different perspective on that subject , sometimes we say to ourselves that we didn’t lie but from the other end we didn’t speak up honestly and we hidden certain facts from others ,so in my opinion it can be treated as a lie , white lie ? I have no idea how to think of it , I myself many times didn’t go with the full explanation because I thought it would be an unnecessary in those circumstances ,but thinking about it now ,makes me realise that not saying everything means you are trying to hide something from others and make them believes things without you actually correcting them if you know they wrong about the thing they implement .
In this article I read, they stated that “dishonesty is an integral part of our social world “, and that “Behaviourally, we show that the extent to which participants engage in self-serving dishonesty increase with repetition”
So from my point of view the fact that we are not fully honest or that we would not correct others if we know something to be true or not , we are creating a lie ,thinking that it is just a small act of dishonesty or lets say not telling some parts of the story ,then the story remain a lie in other person perspective ,no matter if the other person is aware of it or not ,we are the ones who create dishonest circumstances .
Life examples, we can give plenty but lets say there is a married couple and after 20 years of being together ,the wife decide to split up from her husband ,she don’t find him supportive and she says that she want more from life ,the husband on the other hand is constantly trying to please his wife and do everything he can in his power to make sure she feel loved , the wife however have met someone and is entertaining the other person ,hence the idea of divorce ,but in this case we can see that there is both a dishonesty and a lie , wife is dishonest ,I can only think in that case it is because she don’t want to hurt her husband, and she don’t want him to find out about her seeing someone else ,but on the other hand ,she is telling a lie about her life where she doesn’t feel appreciated in her marriage , however the guilt and fear of being caught on seeing someone else is bigger that the guilt of putting someone in the state of mind that they haven’t done enough in the marriage ,in this case her husband , that brings me to the conclusion ,that no matter what we say or do ,all we care about is how others will see us ,nobody wants to be a bad guy ,the one who broke off the marriage, but why do we have to put ourselves in the position of the victim while in reality we know we are not telling the whole story ,even to ourselves quite often .
I hope it will make some sense, stay healthy, safe and till the next time x
