“This is no exaggeration: you were born to put death to death”. ~ Leonard Perimutter
Bruce Lipton, a leading development biologist who believes that genes and DNA can be manipulated by our beliefs is not the only brilliant mind to propose such a mind-bending idea.
In fact, he says that our DNA and cells do not control our health, our emotions do.
The major crisis of the human race is not of raising our IQs, it is one of elevating our WILL quotients.
We must will ourselves to happiness, and thereby experience true health.
While we can’t nor should stuff our emotions down, including negative ones, we can learn to control them and shift our attention to positive feelings as often as possible to dramatically change our bodies right down to our DNA.
Scientists have now been able to measure emotions, including their physiological response on the body.
For example, anger causes higher cholesterol levels and a faster resting heart rate.
Prolonged sadness can cause depression, which leads to a depleted immune system.
Unexpressed or sublimated emotions will get stuck in your back, shoulders, calves, etc.
When too many negative emotions are stuffed away where you can’t see them, or feel them, they can cause the body to come out of balance.
Chinese medicine agrees that emotions can create stagnation in the energy of the body, leading to issues with the spleen, heart, kidneys, liver, bladder, gallbladder, etc.
They usually categorize the emotions into seven distinct areas: grief, sorrow, worry, fear, joy, anger and fright.
Happiness is better even than plastic surgery, and certainly better than chemotherapy or pharmaceuticals at keeping you profoundly alive and healthy.
