We have all heard the term, You get what you are thinking about. There is more truth to this statement than first appears.
DNA is a self-replicating material that is present in nearly all living organisms as the main constituent of chromosomes. It is the carrier of genetic information.
Thoughts Create ReActions
Students in the ’80s were told to think specifically about the worst things that could or had happened to them. Tissue samples were taken. The results proved their negative thinking damaged their DNA. In other words, their genetic makeup was affected by their thinking.
When this same group of students was asked to think about the happiest and best things that had happened in their lives. The tissue samples showed that the DNA was repairing. Your very thoughts can cause harm to your body!
So, does this mean that we have to always be a positive thinking person? The answer is that there is no such thing as we all have positive and negative thoughts. We have to have balance as for every negative in life there is a positive. Just remember that the longer you stay in negative thoughts the more you damage your body.
Mind Your Thoughts
