Many people believe that our genes control our life and that we are ultimately destined to become a victim of our heredity.
Essentially believing that since we can’t change our genes, it clearly means that our life is pretty much predetermined, and we therefore have very little control over our health.
However, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., best-selling author of The Biology of Belief: Unleashing The Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles, says that our genes are merely blueprints with no more power than a paper blueprint. We give them power to turn on and off with our beliefs. He also states that most health problems occur because of “mis-perceptions” that we have learned or acquired through life.
What this new discovery in science means, is that we are NOT controlled by our genetic makeup.
This new science shows that our genetic blueprint (which genes are turned “on” and which are turned “off”) is predominantly determined by our environment and lifestyle, belief systems, attitudes, thoughts and emotions, and our perceptions about same.
…and since perceptions can easily be changed, so too can our health and wellbeing.
During sophrology training we learn about how our perceptions control our biology and its innate ability to dictate our tendency to express health or disease. We progressively learn to change our perceptions, giving us an advantage over our health, because if we can change our perceptions, we can shape and direct our own genetic blueprint.
Using sophrology techniques, we encourage our genes to express vibrant, health and wellbeing which helps to regulate our genetic expression. While practising sophrology exercises we “remind” our cells of their healthy function, so they can go back to being vibrant, healthy, normal cells.
Sophrology teaches us how to maintain optimal wellbeing at the epigenetic level.
So the good news is that you are in control of your genes …
