Epigenetics: Have You Restored Your Original OS-Human Settings?
It was only 10-20 years ago that we thought of our genes as being hardwired and absolute. The dye was cast when the the DNA of our mother and father merged in the egg and a zygote was formed. A new field of biology called Epigenetics says otherwise; instead, every significant experience we have in our lives shapes us genetically into who we are. It has been shown that we are constantly turning on and off genes with our mere thoughts and how we process our experiences. With the old model, the way humans evolved over time was from one generation to the next; after you had passed your genes on to your children you were essentially genetically obsolete. We now know we continue to evolve from within a generation. While our parents give us the basic genetic building blocks, the rest is up to us. So the real question is, are you all you can be?!

To Heal is to Step into Infinity
When we are born we arrive as an envelope of conscious light wrapped around, and connected to, a tiny naked body. We come complete with all the basic hardware necessary for survival but it takes another 20 years or so before our brains and bodies fully develop. In that time we have, and do not have, a whole array of experiences that shape who we will become. Because they are interrelated, each experience we have creates a matrix of changes within our bodies, minds and souls.
Imagine, for example, that you are a child born to parents who are afraid of intimacy or uncomfortable holding you when you cry. Instead of picking you up and soothing you they hastily place you in a crib, walk outside and shut the door. They have even read that this is what to do when your baby cries. Many studies have shown, however, that when a baby is held and soothed a whole cascade of genes that shape our immune and nervous systems are activated giving us high resistance to stress and illness; those genes are not activated in those who were never held, making them more prone to illness and nervous disorders in maturity.
