Tess and I were introduced to Gregg Braden (through a YouTube video in which Braden talks about The Science of Miracles ) by our friend, Christy Svanamyr. In the video, Braden talks about a very interesting military experiment on how DNA responds to emotions.
Turns out living DNA, separated from its donor, stays in tune with its human donor, whether that donor is in a separate room in the same building or separated by hundreds of miles. When a human volunteer is exposed to emotional stimuli, DNA being monitored in a separate location registers identical responses, at the exact same time, as does the human volunteer. How cool is that?!
Check out Gregg Braden's video to appreciate the points, which include:
- We communicate to our DNA through our emotions
- The communication is "non local" meaning the communication is instantaneous, regardless of time and space considerations
- Positive emotions such as love, joy, appreciation, compassion, and forgiveness all tremendously relax the DNA--and thus strengthen the immune system response
- Negative emotions such as anger, rage, and hate contract the DNA and thus disrupt immune system responses
- Human emotions change the shape of DNA, and those changes determine how well our DNA regulates health and well-being
- We can boost our immune systems by encouraging positive emotions that relax our DNA enough to do what comes naturally
This research strikes me as incredibly important. Pass the video link along if you do too!
