Epigenetics: New Insights Into Our Unlimited Potential

Epigenetics: New Insights Into Our Unlimited Potential

As a bio-energetic practitioner, I’m always reminding my clients of life’s endless possibilities. The same goes for you! In order to achieve greatness, you must work diligently in cultivating your life in accordance with your values. Life-affirming practices like mindfulness meditation make all the difference in your mindset and your physical reality.

As humans, we have the capacity for boundless success so long as we take time to nurture ourselves. We’re not victims of fate’s evil hand. Quite the opposite! We are superheroes of our own making.

To reach your highest potential, you have every tool in the universe at your disposal. I’ve talked before about how quantum physics proves you can alter reality with the power of your thoughts. There’s an additional, emerging scientific field called epigenetics that also reveals how we can shape our material reality to match our life’s greatest purpose.

Epigenetics is a relatively new scientific field, which makes it so exciting and transformative! It’s a phenomena that proves our environment impacts our physiological makeup – including the way our genes express themselves!

 

How does this occur? Scientists have discovered that environmental factors such as parental neglect or abuse, work stress, exposure to toxins and a poor diet can have a profound effect on your genetic disposition. All of the factors I mentioned can add or remove chemical labels on our DNA, turning certain genes on or off.

In other words, our environment directly impacts the way our genetic code is scripted and interpreted.

This is a revolutionary way of looking at how the physical makeup of the universe – including our own bodies – can be altered. Are you nurturing yourself? Are you surrounding yourself with positive things and adopting life-affirming practices? Or are you driven by physical or emotional addictions, negative people and toxic environments?

The genes you inherited do not control the outcome of your life. Neither do the terrible experiences of your past that continue to impact you. You can make wise, practical choices in the here and now that can heal your mind, body and spirit. Epigenetics reveals the manifold ways that you can manifest and materialize your highest potential.

As a bio-energetic practitioner, I can guide you through practices designed to overcome the negative emotions and experiences that have you spiritually blocked. You can achieve the life you truly desire. Learn more about my bio-energetic sessions today, or contact me directly. I cannot wait to connect with you!

Gratitude and Grace

Gratitude and Grace

As the Peak Performance Expert, I help people remove the mental limitations that prevent them from achieving greater success 
 
One of the main emotional blocks I see among my clients and others, time and time again, is this: a diminished capacity for gratitude.  
 
We, as a society, seem to have forgotten what it means to receive with grace. To experience and express gratitude, which is a blessing in itself. 
 
In fact, we’ve replaced the practice of gratitude with a negative mindset, that of dissatisfaction. We spend each and every hour striving to do more and be more without taking a moment, a mindful pause, to give thanks to the universe and our Creator for all the resources we already have. 
 
Instead, we barrel forward with our heads down, focused entirely on the end result rather than the present moment that is perfect just as it is. 
 
In fact, it is God who reminds us of our innate perfection. Not only is this moment perfect, but we too are made perfect in His image. God also reminds us that generosity is part of the natural order. Romans 8:32 speaks of the grace that comes with giving and receiving: 
“He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” Romans 8:32
The good news is that you can beginning practice gratitude in the here and now. You can give yourself permission to feel joy in receiving the gifts of the universe. When you open your heart to this energy, you will only ever attract positive things. 
 
Greet each moment with your palms up. You can think of palms up in a figurative way, signifying an open-hearted and receptive approach toward the universe. 
 
You can also practice this position literally by sitting in meditation with your palms up. Mindfully consider the things in your life that you’re grateful for. We often take the things in our lives for granted, so now is the time to pause and give thanks for the small things that give our lives meaning will in turn bring those larger gifts we desire i.e. abundance, prosperity, peace of mind, high quality relationships, strong communication skills.  
 
When you practice gratitude, it becomes habitual, something that comes naturally to you. You are in effect creating more life-affirming energy that sustains you rather than depletes you, as I’ve explained in another article about the laws of biocentrism.  
Here’s another way of putting this elegant, simplified truth. When we appreciate even the smallest things, such as a kind gesture or the check in our hand, our liveliness quite literally appreciates. It leads to an endless, abundant energetic flow, an increase in the value and positive meaning of our lives over time. 
 
Energy attracts like energy. If you’re ready to begin the life-altering practice of transforming your current energy in new, positive, elevating waysreach out to me. I look forward to beginning that journey with you! 
Rebrand Your Business, Rebrand Your Life

Rebrand Your Business, Rebrand Your Life

Personal branding is a way of signaling to others what your unique identity, vision and values are. It’s an authentic revelation of all the things you have to offer the world. 

 What happens when those values or aspirations change? What happens, and how do we take the next step in our personal or professional growth? That’s where rebranding comes in.  

To rebrand is to realign ourselves and our goals by harnessing new, revitalized energy. We grant ourselves new possibilities, new inspirations, and new joys. Simply put, to rebrand means to evolve.  

Many people are afraid of change, even though it’s an instinctual, bioenergetic process that’s required for our spiritual growth. We are beings made of energy. We’re driven to evolve. Just like the energy that comprises us, we are constantly in motion. When we harness that powerful, catabolic potential we discover this exciting fact: that we are in an upward-trending spiral toward our highest calling. 

Rebranding involves opening yourself up to new opportunities with optimism, and this mindset attracts the very best things in life. Whether it’s a new set of dedicated clients, a new service that’s in alignment with our deepest-held values, or a stronger, more supportive networking circle, we rebrand because we’re working toward something greater than we imagined before. 

 

Energy is just like that. In an earlier blog post, I explain how altering your mindset can physically change your reality, even your biological makeup! This is exactly what rebranding does. An example of this is the branded color scheme. Branded colors are evocative of the emotional energy that’s authentic to your identity and your mission. When chosen wisely, these colors transform the attitudes of everyone who comes in contact with your brand and attracts likeminded, positive energy. 

The power suit is another example of this phenomenon. A power suit is a tailored, signature work outfit meant to exude a strong sense of leadership. When you put on your power suit, you feel more confident and successful, which in turn transforms you into a person who is actually – not just potentially – confident and successful beyond their wildest dreams. 

People will often rebrand themselves because their old ways of self-marketing aren’t working. Rebranding, however, is more than just a way of attracting better business. An authentic personal brand has the power to attract all the positive resources in the universe. When you change your energy, you change your material reality.  

 That is the purpose and magic behind rebranding. If you’re ready to embrace change, reach out to me, Amy D, Peak Performance Expert. We’ll begin that journey today! 

Qi’s Connection To Illness

Qi’s Connection To Illness

Have you ever gotten sick and not understood why? Illness is connected to germs and pathogens, right? Have you ever considered that illness might be attached to your emotions? It seems strange. But, for thousands of years the connection between body and emotion has been well known. Different cultures call this energy connection by different names. The Chinese have arguably the most ancient (over 3500 years worth), detailed documentation of this energy system that they refer to as “Qi”.

Qi is composed of the forces of Yin and Yang. If these forces stay balanced a person will remain healthy inside and out. If the balance is disturbed or the energy is blocked, one can become ill. These energies flow through channels in the body called meridians. Meridians are the pathways in which energy flows to nourish the functions and organs the body.

These blockages can occur because of stress, bad eating, negative thought patterns etc. And they can cause you to become very ill. So something as simple as a common cold, flu, or other ailments can be caused by an energy blockage? Yes, that is exactly the way energy flow along meridians works. So, what can you do to release blockages and keep yourself well?

There are many ways in which you can remove blockages along the energy meridians yourself. Exercise, meditation, affirmations, clean eating, getting back to nature etc are all good ways in which you can start to heal yourself. However, some blockages are so deep seeded that you may need to seek the help of a professional to overcome them. Acupuncture and meridian massage are probably the most well known ways to overcome these energy obstacles.

Once you begin to understand how these meridians function and how they connect to specific parts of your body, you can begin to remove blockages and move past emotions that may have been holding you hostage for years. If the DIY methods I recommended don’t get you where you need to be, reach out. I am here to help you remove these obstacles and clear the path to better understanding and healing.

Reset: Meditation and Your Natural Set Point

Reset: Meditation and Your Natural Set Point

Meditation has stood the test of time. The fact that people have been meditating since the beginning of human civilization is a testament to its many benefits. Scientific research over the years has proven this. And I have spoken at length about it on this blog many times. But, did you know meditation can help you hit the reset button on your brain? Read on to find out about set points and the power of meditation.

Each of us has a set point for positive and negative emotions. The Set Point Study found that people who are naturally happy have more activity in the front part of their frontal lobes. While those who are prone to anxiety have more activity on the right side of their frontal lobe. When you go through intense events in your life, your emotions shift away from that natural set point.

For example, this study worked with naturally happy people who only recently began suffering from spinal cord paralysis. The study found that those people returned to their natural demeanor after a brief depression. Your brain chemistry will always regress to its natural set point. However, this process takes about 6 months.

It is possible to reset your natural emotional set point. This reset can be achieved through meditation. Participants in the study meditated for 1 hour a day, 6 days week. After 8 weeks, follow-ups showed a change in each participant. They were happier and became more in tune with the emotions of those around them. In addition, their immune system responses improved.With MRI scans, scientists have noticed that people who meditate have larger brains than those who don’t. Elderly people who meditate regularly also lose less gray matter and have a thicker prefrontal cortex. The prefrontal cortex is where your attention and control are determined.

Armed with this knowledge, you can make meditation a priority for your health. Ease meditation into your day, starting with 15-minute spurts. Eventually, you will work up to the 1-hour meditation session per day, 6 days per week schedule used by the participants in this study. If you are naturally anxious or depressed, you can change this set point over time with this schedule and improve your overall quality of life.

If you find it challenging to make positive changes in your life, you’re not alone. It could be due to the HeartWall. When the HeartWall is removed, you connect on a deeper level personally and professionally, experience increased health, have a greater peace consistently and are more abundant.
