“Our DNA & Healing” by Rev. Christine 8/22/2021
My talk today is titled “Our DNA & Healing.” Its about our Divine inheritance, our DNA, and tools we have available for changing our lives and healing our self.
The Bible says, in Ephesians 4:6, “One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all.” Psalms 82:6 “You are gods, and you are all children of the highest.” And, in John 3:6 “That which is born of spirit is spirit.” Meaning our very being is of Spirit, is Divine, right down to our DNA.
The following Bible scripture I found most helpful in understanding the power of our thoughts: Jesus said in Matt. 15:11, “It is not what enters into the mouth which defiles a man, but what comes out of the mouth, that is what defiles a man.” and in 17-20, “Do you not know that what enters into the mouth goes into the stomach, and thence, through the intestines, is cast out? But what comes out of the mouth comes out from the heart; and that is what defiles a man. For from the heart come out evil thoughts, such as fornication, murder, adultery, theft, false witness, blasphemy. It is these that defile a man; but if a man should eat when his hands are unwashed, he will not be defiled.”
Jesus, further said, it’s not just the act, but thinking and imagining the act is the same as committing the act. Here he is teaching about the power of our thoughts and spoken words. Just thinking upon something is giving it energy, and that energy affects the mind and body even when no physical action is taken. It is also true that when people think about something long enough, they’re bound to act it out.
But what are those negative, fearful thoughts doing to the physical body? Today science understands that the body doesn’t understand the difference between thinking, feeling and doing. It reacts the same.
The brain sends signals that produces chemical reactions that pumps adrenaline throughout the body, speeding up the heart, tightening the muscles, restricting the flow of blood, reducing airflow, and pours an overload on the organs which affects the cellular structure. Then the memory of the event gets stored, recorded in the subconscious mind to resurface and play again.
People have a tendency to blame their pain and suffering on what happens in the manifest world of experience, while the root cause is within their very own domain of thinking, feeling, and acting.
Emotion is vibration, words are vibrations, and these vibrations may alter our DNA code. Illness and disease may come about through having strong emotions of fear, anger, sadness and grief; these take us out of balance, or out of tune, and may compromise our immune system. Our natural healthy state is a vibrational frequency of love. To support our immune system we need to have thoughts and feelings of gratitude, appreciation, joy, love, and laugh ever day. Laughter is a powerful medicine.
Spiritual teachers have known for ages that our body is programmable by words and thoughts. The Buddha declared “We are formed and molded by our thoughts.” and Proverbs 23:7 says “So as he thinks in his heart so is he.” This has now been scientifically proven and explained.
Although I’ve shared this research before, it is so important that I’m sharing it again today. Back in 2005, western medicine acknowledged about 10% of our DNA is for building proteins, and then referred to the other 90% as “Junk” DNA.
The Russian researchers, however, convinced that nature was not dumb, joined linguists and geneticists in a venture to explore that 90% of “junk” DNA. Since then, the concept of “Junk” DNA is now replaced by the hyper active functional DNA view. That is 99% of the DNA is fully functional.
Our DNA is not only responsible for the construction of our body, but also serves as data storage and communication. The Russian linguists found that the genetic code follows the same rules as all our human languages. Then found that they could create devices that influence cellular metabolism through modulated radio and light frequencies, thus repairing defects.
In an experiment, some human placenta DNA was placed in a container from which they could measure changes in the DNA. Twenty-eight vials of DNA were given, one to each trained researcher. Each researcher had been trained how to generate and feel feelings, and they each had strong emotions.
What they discovered was that the DNA changed its shape according to the feelings of the researchers. When the researchers felt gratitude, love and appreciation, the DNA responded by relaxing and the strands unwound. The length of the DNA became longer.
When the researchers felt anger, fear, frustration, or stress, the DNA responded by tightening up. It became shorter and switched off many of its DNA codes. If you’ve ever felt “shut down” by negative emotions, now you know your body was equally shut down too. The shutdown of the DNA codes was reversed and the codes were switched back on again when feelings of love, joy, gratitude, and appreciation were felt by the researchers.
This experiment was later followed up by testing HIV positive patients. They discovered that feelings of love, gratitude, and appreciation created 300,000 times the resistance they had without those feelings. So this is the answer to what can help you stay well. No matter what dreadful virus or bacteria may be floating around; stay in feelings of joy, love, gratitude, and appreciation!
Now the frequency has to be correct. Much like a piano, violin, guitar; the strings need to be tuned just right to produce a specific musical note. If tighten too much or too loose, the instrument won’t make the same sound. It will be off key, and results will be distorted. Even if we say the right words, but without the matching feeling it’s not going to have the same impact. Both feeling and thoughts must be in alignment with each other for the right frequency and vibration in producing the desired result.
There’s the saying of “having a gut feeling.” This gut feeling is what we really believe, and can be in conflict with our desires. The gut feeling will override the desired result. Affirmations are a powerful tool. In saying affirmations we are affirming our true nature - what we know of God. The Truth slowly overwrites our old belief system with the new. We will have stored in our subconscious, at the cellular and DNA level this new belief.
The amazing thing is that our cells, our DNA, loves to hear the Truth of our being - the body knows. Our body responds with a lightness, we may get goose bumps and tingle, and feel joy. Muscle testing has demonstrated that when we think a negative thought our body becomes weaker, and when we hold a positive thought our body is strengthened.
As of December 2013, a scientific study talks about a second DNA code. The human genome is packed with at least four million gene switches that reside in bits of DNA that once were dismissed as “junk” but it turns out that so-called junk DNA plays critical roles in controlling how cells, organs and other tissues behave.
This discovery, considered a major medical and scientific breakthrough, has enormous implications for human health and consciousness because many complex diseases appear to be caused by tiny changes in hundreds of gene switches.
As scientists delved into the “junk” parts of the DNA that are not actual genes containing instructions for proteins, they discovered a complex system that controls genes. At least 80 percent of this DNA is active and needed. Another 15-17 percent has higher functions scientists are still decoding.
This study found that the hereditary material that exists in nearly every cell of the body, was written right on top of the DNA code scientists had already cracked. Rather than concerning itself with proteins, this one instructs the cells on how genes are controlled.
Its discovery means DNA changes, or mutations that come with age, or in response to vibrational changes within the DNA may actually cause disease by disrupting gene control programs or even both mechanisms simultaneously.
Science has come to the point of understanding that DNA is conscious and is consciousness - it is our bio-circuitry. In 2016, it was announced in MIT News Office that MIT biological engineers have created a programming language that allows them to rapidly design complex, DNA-encoded circuits that give new functions to living cells.
Christopher Voight an MIT professor of biological engineering says, “It is literally a programming language for bacteria. You use a text-based language, just like you’re programming a computer. Then you take that text and you compile it and it turns it into a DNA sequence that you put into the cell, and the circuit runs inside the cell.”
According to Rollin McCraty, Ph.D., of the Institute of Heart Math in Boulder Creek, CO, “has proven that measurable molecular changes occur in the DNA molecule as a result of intention, meditation and prayer. Intention projected into the energy system from the consciousness of the heart can provide miracles of healing through the epigenetic effects of wellbeing on the cells of the body, shaping our genetic expression moment by moment and catalyzing DNA activation. Whenever we engage in healing ourselves through meditation, intention or prayer, we activate a “tuning fork” that send healing vibrations throughout the body.”
Science is now up to what Divine Science, and New Thought, have been saying for almost a hundred-fifty years. That our thoughts, beliefs, emotions effect our physical body. Negative thinking and emotions create illness and disease. And thoughts, beliefs and emotions based in Truth and love, restore the body to its natural state of wholeness.
Malinda Cramer, founder of Divine Science, was asked by her students if she was instantly healed, her answer was “I at once saw the unreality of the conditions of dis-ease and was free from the belief that they had any power, or could control for either good or ill. Thus the ax was struck at the root of the tree, and the old conditions passed away as I disowned the old habits of belief.”
About 20 years ago, someone pointed out to me that a growth near my eye was growing, and they were concerned about it. I looked at it often. Then it came to me to not focus on it. Part of this was to stop talking to others about it, thinking about it, or looking for symptoms, and to replace with Truth. I affirmed: “I release it into the nothingness from which it came.” After a while I forgot about it, then one morning I realized it was totally gone.
With this knowledge we can rewrite our script, our DNA. The power is ours to unfold Truth and set ourselves free. Everyday take time to study and think about spiritual truth. Do those affirmations, and prayer treatments, until those words become part of you. Daily meditate; contemplate about Truth and God, and then go into the silence of inner listening - this is direct communion with the Divine within and is everywhere present. Here healing takes place, the mysteries are revealed, and life is filled with purpose and joy. These practices become a way of life, and a better life.
