I previously wrote about Gratitude and how you can begin to create the feeling of gratitude.
But yes, life is tough, things happen and how can we have gratitude when we are really feeling awful maybe even physically.
I don't believe that we can shove all those feelings away, and say "hey I'm going to feel gratitude".
Why? Because your body, knows you aren't telling the truth. It really does.
Then on the other hand we know that having gratitude can begin to change the neural pathways in the brain, and switch on and off the genes that allow for inflammation to reduce.
But it is frustrating isn't it? When someone tells you feel the gratitude, and inside you, you feel like screaming because there is either pain, or a certain situation in your life that is causing you agony.
I'm not here to tell you to do anything....but to feel your truth. What is that?
Feel what you feel, really, but this time, don't JUDGE it. Feel it.....
What does that do?
Well it allows your nervous system to relax,...
Recently, I worked with Kayla. I love the passion she has for wanting to BE love, and to be HER.
How is this possible when you have a family and so many demands? We all have that question pop up now and again.
Kayla, inspires me with how she can be a mum and a wife, and learn everyday with all the different demands of life to create a life that is full of love and joy.
She writes with passion about her life, the joys, the not-so-joy moments, all from her heart.
Every time I interact with her whether through her blogs or personal messages she lights up my heart.
What has Epigenetics got to do with this?
When it comes to epigenetics and positive gene expression, it isn't about moving away from the demands of life, in order to go and meditate some where with no interactions. It is about living each moment with choice, each moment knowing that YOU have CHOICE.
After our work together, she wrote this blogpost about our work together, and I wanted to share it here to just share...
With all the recent news that Angelina Jolie had a bilateral mastectomy to prevent having cancer because she was told that she was more likely to get breast and ovarian cancer, it has made me think deeply about our beliefs around illness and wellbeing, on many levels. It has also made me realise how important it is to get the information about epigenetics out to the public.
Why do I feel this way? Because less then 10% of cancer has a hereditary basis to it! We are still living in the old paradigm where genetics was thought to be the major contributory factor that causes cancer. What we now know is that it is our environment, both internal and external that influences whether we get cancer or not.
What are these factors? They are our emotions and our beliefs, these then influence our perception of the world, and this is such a huge contributory factor to whether a cancer develops or not.
Each gene isn't read in one way, it can be read in 30,000 different ways and this is...
I'm SO excited to share with you my new video, Bursting the Bubble on Genes. My aim in making this video was to bring simplicity to understanding the basics of Epigenetics, and that is that the control of our genes in not the genes themselves but the environment.
What environment? Your internal environment, that is your emotions, beliefs and perceptions, and your external environment.
This is a big message, as up till now all we have been taught to believe is that we are victims to our genes. It is time for change.....internally, and this allows you to shift your biology....
I hope you enjoy it as much as I had fun making it.
Shared with love
Here's my latest fun, animated video in the series "Bursting the Bubble.."
Do you suffer from depression, or a feeling of not being connected, or even a feeling that there seems to be a barrier in the way of you giving and receiving love?
Maybe you have a Heart Wall...

Here's my next article - "Is it safe to let go?"
Sometimes we can "work" on an issue till we are blue in the face (figuratively speaking), and still wonder why things aren't changing. Here's my next article on this, and a few questions that we can "ask" our subconscious to allow it to FEEL safe to LET go of the issue in question.
Why beat the door down, when we can just turn the handle...? ;-)
