Can You Change Your DNA?

Can You Change Your DNA?

Is it possible to change our DNA from within ourselves? Can we even alter our DNA blueprint?

At the Institute of HeartMath, we have been researching these questions for over a decade. This is such an intriguing subject to me that I wanted to share some of the results with you and invite you into the conversation.

First a little background on DNA.

The DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) in the nucleus of our cells contains the blueprint for our developing body and instructions for who we will become. For example, it can tell our eyes to eventually turn from blue at birth to hazel later on, tell our height to grow from 20 inches at birth to 70 inches as an adult, and direct a multitude of other changes over the course of our lives.

Scientists used to believe that the DNA with which we are born is the sole determinant for who we are and will become, however studies have shown that strict genetic determinism is a flawed theory. Thus, a new field of study called epigenetics was born, which is quite exciting.

This is fascinating. I practice cardiofeedback and I'm always amazed at what the EM field of the Heart can do. I would be interested in knowing the harmonic frequencies at which the effect on the DNA occurs. For example, I've found what appears to be a harmonic connection between the thinking mind and the feeling heart that hovers at about 9hz. I would imagine that there are frequencies in the Spectra that promote the regeneration or reboot of our original "blueprint." Astral Technology has come a long way. Have your EM field call my EM field and we'll hook up.

love love super love. odd coincidence I just started Michael Crichton's book "Next" which goes over this exact research... thanks so much!

Interesting, thanks.

Im glad that scientists are looking at this because a lot of people will not be convinced unless science is already believe that this is the case.

Science at the doorsteps of God. The higher dimensional structures- That is it! Feel the connection people. That connection is God.

This should be a criminal act. This is the same what Hitler did with the judes. All people should be even.

I'm leaning towards yes it can be done.

I read to page 3. Utterly not convinced.

Interesting. Thanks Chris.

Doesn't sound too good to me,I'll stick with my fresh strawberry smoothie.

Thanks for sharing, "and happy Sweating"
