When those fingers are pointing at you, is it really your fault?
WELL, there is a lot we can do! But first we need to take a good look at our genetic code and our programing on all levels, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. As I was contemplating my own evolution of my family code this year, I stumbled upon some WELLness ideas for all four areas:
Physically: My friend Ioana introduced me to “Genewize” for example, a company that personalizes your supplements according to your physical genetic disposition, as it reveals itself in your saliva test that they take.
In the realm of Emotional WELLness, I met the Gestalt Psychologist Veteran, Anne Teachworth, who gave me her book Why we Pick the Mates we Do a wonderful guidebook to the emotional disposition we inherited from our parents and parent’s parents. It demonstrates how our “gut-feeling” is often just a hand-me-down…
Mentally, I was contemplating how my disposition is very much affected by the thoughts, spoken and unspoken, that are broadcasted in my living environment. So I surrounded myself more with people of a positive mind set and created a Woman’s WELL meet-up. I also got invited by my friend Michelle to open up one of her Women’s Heart Circles , another beautiful WELLness idea.
So while we may not be as authentic and self governed as we would hope, there are recent breakthroughs in biology that show how our DNA, the code that makes us who we are today, is not necessarily in control of our destiny. Rather it is our general attitude in life that tells our DNA what to become. This means that every thought, feeling and action we make in life is imprinted in every cell of our body. Negative thoughts cause our DNA to contract and positive thoughts cause our DNA to relax which puts us in charge to transform our Family History into the kind of Family WELLness we want to eXperience.
As Richard Rudd puts it in one of my favorite spiritual study materials of GENE KEYS (oh yeah, it’s way more then just a book):
“You are the architect of your evolution. When you fully embrace the implications of this truth, then your journey has begun… As reflected in the lives of all great saints and spiritual teachers through out history – inside of us lies a vast potential and beauty, and it is limited only by the ways we see ourselves and the world around us.”
