His groundbreaking work coupled with Dr. Bruce Lipton just blows my mind. If you are interested in plunging even deeper into their work, they have an abundance of research, but for the purpose of our time together, I want to highlight segments of their work to hopefully ignite a deeper curiosity on your part.
"The history you share with your family begins before you are even conceived. In your earliest biological form, as an unfertilized egg, you already share a cellular environment with your mother and grandmother. When your grandmother was five months pregnant with your mother, the precursor cell of the egg you developed from was already present in your mother's ovaries.
This means that before your mother was even born, your mother, your grandmother, and the earliest traces of you were all in the same body-three generations sharing the same biological environment. This isn't a new idea: embryology textbooks have told us as much for more than a century."
If you feel like your mind is ready to explode, you're in good company; mine does too! "The pioneering cell biologist Bruce Lipton demonstrates that our DNA can be affected by both negative and positive thoughts, beliefs, and emotions."
Why is this work even relevant? Because we truly are more powerful than we ever imagined, and that's why it is so important to participate in our own healing work, try yoga, develop a spiritual practice, breath, meditate, talk to a therapist, etc. Do whatever you need to do to resolve regret, get rid of perpetual fear, obliterate eternal feelings of sadness, and the list goes on and on. We are not only offering ourselves and our cells a healing, but we can affect the cells of our family members at a generational level.
I was thinking back to an activity that I did at a training and its power blew my socks off! It's really profound and if someone can witness you saying this out loud, its impact is even more poignant! Maybe this exercise offers a sense of simplicity to see how we sometimes take on unconscious patterns that are aimlessly passed down through generations? In this exercise you will simply fill in the blanks.

I hope this deep work benefits and sparks a sense of curiosity in your own life. Digest what resonates and leave the rest. This work is here to illuminate, never to shame. We all do the best we can until we know better. Remember what you are here to teach the world and know that this reason is even bigger than YOU!
