ARE YOUR GENES BEHAVING?

Sylvia Marina - Saturday, January 25, 2014

ARE YOUR GENES BEHAVING?  ... with Sylvia Marina
 
Genetically, people are inclined to certain behaviour patterns and illness.
These patterns lie dormant till a trigger, usually an emotion results in activation.

Identifying and defusing stored negative emotions means a trigger has nothing to activate.

Our long-time readers will find the following writing that relates to aspects of our self mastery and transforming DNA memories program, from a summary by Douglas F. Levinson, M.D. of Stanford School of Medicine, of good interest.

This is a summary of information about what is known about genetics and major depression.

How common is major depression? At least 10% of people in the U.S. will experience major depressive disorder at some point in their lives. Two times as many women as men experience major depression.

How do we know that genes play a role in causing depression? Scientists look at patterns of illness in families to estimate their “heritability,” or roughly what percentage of their cause is due to genes. 

To do this we find people with the disease who have a twin, and then find out whether the twin is also ill.  Identical twins share 100% of their genes, while non-identical twins share 50% of their genes.

If genes are part of the cause, we expect a patient’s identical twin to have a much higher risk of disease than a patient’s non-identical twin.  That is the case for major depression.  Heritability is probably 40-50%, and might be higher for severe depression. 

This could mean that in most cases of depression, around 50% of the cause is genetic, and around 50% is unrelated to genes (psychological or physical factors). 

We can also look at adoption studies, to see whether an adopted person’s risk of depression is greater if a biological parent had depression.  This also seems to be the case.

What about non-genetic factors?  There are probably many non-genetic factors that increase risk of depression, many of which are probably not yet known. 

Severe childhood physical or sexual abuse, childhood emotional and physical neglect, and severe life stress are probably all risk factors.  Losing a parent early in life probably also increases risk to some extent.

If someone has a family history of depression, are they at very high risk?  If someone has a parent or sibling with major depression, that person probably has a 2 or 3 times greater risk of developing depression compared with the average person (or around 20-30% instead of 10%).

No one simply “inherits” depression from their mother or father.  Each person inherits a unique combination of genes from their mother and father, and certain combinations can predispose to a particular illness.

Our emotional mastery programs (Self Mastery and Transforming DNA Memories) give you the intuitive skill to identify the energetic pattern and hidden messages that lie behind problems and disease.

Using specific ‘keys to clearing’ this understanding enables people to heal underlying conflicts, negative patterns, patterns of fear related to heriditary illness, behaviour and disease, grief, loss and fear of loss. Learning skills to change the energy associatied with ‘fear thoughts’ and emotionally crippling behaviour leads to emotional freedom and greater happiness.

This work is my passion. The first half of my life I constantly fought the crippling effect of unkind, debilitating emotions. Discovering a way to understand and then gently release for me meant the two sides of the brain began to live in harmony, my outlook on life completely changed, happiness and success became my normal.
