Out of your mind

Yoga Chakra ChartKarma tends to get a bad rap. We say, ‘Oh that’s just Karma, there’s nothing I can do about that’.

In reality Karma is just all the baggage you carry around with you. Every event and emotion you have experienced in your past. Your mind collects these and keeps throwing them back in your face, often at the most inopportune moments. Your mind is like an annoying nagging friend, that hangs around with you all the time. Whenever you decide to do something new this friend says ‘No, no, no – remember the last time you tried doing something like that – it was a disaster’. So you listen to what they are saying and all that negativity naturally dampens your enthusiasm.

Who does it benefit, apart from the drug companies that have a costly drug that matches that particular pigeon?

    c) You don’t have any unusual beliefs or fears
    d) You haven’t screwed up a relationship

What no hands! Sadly it continues; Read the rest of this entry »

Your choices affect your great grand children

A recent discovery has thrown more weight to the Epigenetic theory that our environment influences and our thoughts have more of an effect on our genes than was previously suspected. Several new studies this year have shown that all of a person’s cells don’t have the same genetic coding, especially in neurons.

“The DNA in each nerve cell has hundreds of mutations of the A-T, C-G nucleotides that constitute the genetic code for the neuron. Thus, no two neurons are alike. The study was conducted by 18 research teams at 15 U.S. institutions, formed as a consortium by the National Institute of Mental Health to examine neural genetic coding, using repositories of post mortem brain tissue taken from both healthy people and those with various mental diseases.” Reference Read the rest of this entry »
