I received an "e-gossip" that "quoted" a speaker named Gregg Braden, author of The Isaiah Effect and Awakening to the Zero Point. Being very skeptical of anything I receive via email or see on the web, I tried to verify the info in it. I've asked for bibliographical references, so perhaps they'll come through. But, I did find this link - twm.co.nz/DNAPhantom.htm - on the web. I fully realize, it may not be real and believable. Especially since several of the crucial links to supporting info in this web page are not just broken but purposefully left out and camouflaged as links. However, I wanted to share it, just to see what kind of thoughts anyone else may have on it. I hope this is an appropriate location for this kind of thing. :)
I'll do my best to comment intelligently on this, but I'm not a scientist. I'm just a very curious learner. :)
This is the man referenced in the email I received: www.sacredspaces.org/GB-011202-Ind.asp. The first thing I note is that this guy is making good money off this (charging a fee that I could not afford). That always bothers me. This does not, however, mean that he's taking advantage of faulty information.
Below, is the email I received. My comments are in bold. The capitalization within the article is entirely the author's, not mine.
Hi All.. I thought this article was so interesting, it's on how our
emotions (vibrations) effect our DNA. Lynda
HEALING HEARTS/HEALING NATIONS: THE SCIENCE OF PEACE AND THE POWER OF PRAYER Manipulating DNA
BY NOW, I suppose you are thinking about anthrax. If so, you will be happy to get the news I have from Gregg Braden, author of The Isaiah Effect and Awakening to the Zero Point.
The title of his program was Healing Hearts/Healing Nations: The Science of Peace and the Power of Prayer. To this end he reported on three very interesting experiments. Gregg Braden started off as a scientist and engineer, before he began pursuing these larger questions.
The first experiment he reported was done by Dr.Vladimir Poponin, a quantumbiologist. In this experiment, first a container was emptied (ie a vacuum was created within it), and then the only thing left in it were photons (particles of light).
They measured the distribution (ie the location) of the photons and found they were completely random inside the container. This was the expected result. Then some DNA was placed inside the container and the distribution (location) of the photons was remeasured. This time the photons were LINED UP in an ORDERED way and aligned with the DNA. In other words the physical DNA had an effect on the non-physical photons.
After that, the DNA was removed from the container, and the distribution of the photons was remeasured again. The photons REMAINED ORDERED and lined up where the DNA had been. What are the light particles connected to?
Gregg Braden says we are forced to accept the possibility that some NEW field of energy, a web of energy, is there and the DNA is communicating with the photons through this energy.
-- ANGEL'S REMARK: I love that last paragraph above. *snort* It's so sensationalist, so naive. I'm envisioning a wide-eyed, blue-eyed, little girl writing it. "Mom! Could it be true?!" --
These were experiments done by the military. Leukocytes (white blood cells) were collected for DNA from donors and placed into chambers so they could be measure electrical changes. In this experiment, the donor was placed in one room and subjected to "emotional stimulation" consisting of video clips, which generated different emotions in the donor.
The DNA was placed in a different room in the same building. Both the donor and his DNA were monitored and as the donor exhibited emotional peaks or valleys (measured by electrical responses), the DNA exhibited the IDENTICAL RESPONSES AT THE EXACT SAME TIME. There was no lag time, no transmission time. The DNA peaks and valleys EXACTLY MATCHED the peaks and valleys of the donor in time.
The military wanted to see how far away they could separate the donor from his DNA and still get this effect. They stopped testing after they separated the DNA and the donor by 50 miles and STILL had the SAME result. No lag time; no transmission time.
The DNA and the donor had the same identical responses in time. What can this mean?
Gregg Braden says it means that living cells communicate through a previously unrecognized form of energy. This energy is not affected by time and distance. This is a non-local form of energy, an energy that already exists everywhere, all the time.
The third experiment was done by the Institute of Heart Math and the paper that was written about this was titled: Local and Non local Effects of Coherent Heart Frequencies on Conformational Changes of DNA. (Disregard the title! The info is incredible.)
-- ANGEL'S REMARK: I found a link to a very brief overview of this paper at twm.co.nz/SubtleEnergy.html. --
This is the experiment that relates directly to the anthrax situation. In this experiment, some human placenta DNA (the most pristine form of DNA) was placed in a container from which they could measure changes in the DNA. Twenty-eight vials of DNA were given (one each) to 28 trained researchers. Each researcher had been trained how to generate and FEEL feelings, and they each had strong emotions.
What was discovered was that the DNA CHANGED ITS SHAPE according to the feelings of the researchers: 1. When the researchers FELT gratitude, love and appreciation, the DNA responded by RELAXING and the strands unwound. The length of the DNA became longer. 2. When the researchers FELT anger, fear, frustration, or stress, the DNA responded by TIGHTENING UP. It became shorter.
If you've ever felt "shut down" by negative emotions, now you know why your body was equally shut down too. The shut down of the DNA codes was reversed and the codes were switched back on again when feelings of love, joy, gratitude and appreciation were felt by the researchers.
This experiment was later followed up by testing HIV positive patients. They discovered that feelings of love, gratitude and appreciation created 300,000 TIMES the RESISTANCE they had without those feelings. So here's the answer to what can help you stay well, no matter what dreadful virus or bacteria may be floating around. Stay in feelings of joy, love, gratitude and appreciation!
-- ANGEL'S REMARK: I wonder whom she's trying to convince more, us or herself? --
These emotional changes went beyond the effects of electro-magnetics. Individuals trained in deep love were able to change the shape of their DNA. Gregg Braden says this illustrates a new recognized form of energy that connects all of creation.
-- ANGEL'S REMARK: *blinkblink* Individuals trained in deep love? What the heck does that mean? And how do you measure it? And can I take that class? Heh. --
This energy appears to be a TIGHTLY WOVEN WEB that connects all matter.Essentially we're able to influence this web of creation through our VIBRATION.
What do the results of these experiments have to do with our present situation? This is the science behind how we can choose a timeline to stay safe, no matter what else is happening. As Gregg explains in The Isaiah Effect, basically time is not just linear (past, present and future), but it also has depth. The depth of time consists of all the possible prayers and timelines that could ever be prayed or exist. Essentially, all our prayers have already been answered. We just activate the one we're living through our FEELINGS. THIS is how we create our reality - by choosing it with our feelings. Our feelings are activating the timeline via the web of creation, which connects all of the energy and matter of the Universe. Remember that the law of the Universe is that we attract what we focus on.
-- ANGEL'S REMARK: Is this the law of the Universe? --
If you are focused on fearing whatever may come, you are sending a strong message to the Universe to send you whatever you fear. Instead if you can get yourself into feelings of joy, love, appreciation or gratitude, and focus on bringing more of that into your life, you are going to avoid the negative stuff automatically.
Staying in these positive feelings maintains an incredibly strong immune system.
So here's your protection for whatever comes: Find something to be happy about every day, and every hour if possible, moment-to-moment, even if only for a few minutes. This is the easiest and best protection you can have. If nothing else, be joyous that the criminals (whomever they may be) have "already been caught" by the Universe!
The author of this "article" is obviously taking a layman's, emotional approach to it. I would guess it was written by an amateur writer. The summary seems to me to be nothing more than a splat of lovely sentimental drivel, but hidden in all that Pepto-Bismal-colored lace is a grain of truth. I sense it there. Ahhh....
Anyway, this has gotten quite long and cumbersome. Please do let me know if this is inappropriate.
