Did you know our thoughts directly shape your mind, body and your reality too?
We used to think our brain was unchangeable by the time we reached adulthood, but in fact, we now know the brain is plastic, meaning it is constantly changing, updating and upgrading itself. We also used to believe that our genes, the genetic information passed down from our ancestors to us would determine our lives, our health, and our success. But in fact, that is also not true, through the new science of epigenetics scientists are discovering that we can influence our genetics through our thoughts, actions, and experiences, overriding the DNA data that was handed down to us.
The way you think not only affects the way you feel and behave, it also has an impact on how you perceive your world and how you live in it.
A thought is an electrochemical event taking place in your nerve cells producing a cascade of physiological changes. The article, How Your Thoughts Program Your Cells, explains it this way:
“There are thousands upon thousands of receptors on each cell in our body. Each receptor is specific to one peptide, or protein. When we have feelings of anger, sadness, guilt, excitement, happiness or nervousness, each separate emotion releases its own flurry of neuropeptides. Those peptides surge through the body and connect with those receptors which change the structure of each cell as a whole. Where this gets interesting is when the cells actually divide. If a cell has been exposed to a certain peptide more than others, the new cell that is produced through its division will have more of the receptor that matches with that specific peptide. Likewise, the cell will also have less receptors for peptides that its mother/sister cell was not exposed to as often.”
So, if you have been bombarding your cells with peptides from negative thoughts, you are literally programming your cells to receive more of the same negative peptides in the future. What’s even worse is that you’re lessening the number of receptors of positive peptides on the cells, making yourself more inclined towards negativity.
THE WONDERFUL news is though – every cell in your body is replaced about every two months so you can reprogram your pessimistic cells to be more optimistic by adopting positive thinking practices, like mindfulness and gratitude, for permanent results.
