The power of your thoughts creates your reality. Everything that impacts your life has its origin in your thoughts and beliefs. This is a powerful concept but science is beginning to prove that this is true. Your thoughts are alive. Each time you have a specific thought, you release a specific energy vibration. The following experiment teaches us about an energy that connects all of us. We can choose what we think about and in turn determine our peace and happiness.
This experiment was done by The Institute of HeartMath and a paper followed published by Glen Rein, PhD, and Rollin McCraty titled Local and Non-Local Effects of Coherent Heart Frequencies on Conformational Changes of DNA.
In this experiment, some human placental DNA (the most pristine form of DNA) was placed in a container from which they could measure changes in it.
Twenty-eight vials of DNA were given – one each – to 28 trained researchers. Each researcher had been trained in how to generate and feel feelings, and each had strong emotions.
What was 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 codes! If you’ve ever felt “shut down” by negative emotions, now you know why. Your body was 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.
Testing HIV-positive patients later followed up this experiment. Here, they discovered that feelings of love, gratitude, and appreciation created 300,000 times the resistance than the subjects had without those feelings.
There have been other experiments that have shown similar results. The people trained to generate feelings of deep love at will, were able to change the shape of their DNA. There seems to be a universal web of energy and our DNA is communicating with it. In other words, we are able to impact our lives and even the universe through our own vibrational emotions.
Greg Braden states that all our prayers have already been answered. We activate the one we’re living through our feelings. This is how we create our reality – by choosing it with our feelings. Our thoughts and feelings can connect us to the energy and matter of the Universe. If we can get ourselves into feelings of joy, love, appreciation, or gratitude, and focus on bringing more of that into our lives, we are going to avoid the negative stuff automatically. (Braden, Gregg)
The scripture tells us a lot about the importance and power of our thoughts. Science is beginning to prove what the scriptures have been telling us.
“Finally Brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
