The healing power of gratitude - Bruce Lipton explains telomeres

Thanksgiving. Take away the turkey, the candied sweet potatoes and the football … and what’s left? At the core of the Thanksgiving holiday is gratitude. This special day is set aside to reflect upon and express our appreciation for the gifts of life we have received. As important, Thanksgiving is an opportunity to “pay-it-forward” by returning that kindness back into the world.

Gratitude is expressed as a primary emotion. It is a state of mind translated by the brain into complementary neurochemistry that is secreted into the blood stream. The chemistry of gratitude energizes the body and releases a wave of euphoric sensation, a sense of harmony with all that is.

About this “chemistry:” The emotional chemistry of gratitude engages the activity of an amazing enzyme – telomerase, the cellular equivalent of the Fountain of Youth. This month’s video, a little longer than usual (~11 minutes), provides the science of how telomeres can influence the onset of aging, disease and depression. AND … how consciousness, such as gratitude, happiness, positive thinking, in other words, how expressing “Thanksgiving” every day of the year, can provide for a more youthful, long-lived, and vital life experience. I hope this month’s video empowers your life at this time of planetary evolution.

For my own thankfulness, I am in deep gratitude for all of YOU cultural creatives, for your consciousness is shaping a more thrivable future for civilization. I am most deeply indebted to my love, Margaret, for the joy of partnership and celebrating life on planet Earth. Our efforts to provide knowledge that can empower people really wouldn’t work without the beautiful souls supporting the mission of Mountain of Love Productions: Sally Thomas (choosing retirement after 14 years at the helm), Annie May Willis (our new spirit-of-love running the office. Have a moment? Check out tracks on Annie’s fabulous CD, This Love, in the store on our website), a very special thanks to Laura Virgallito, whose youth and vitality have empowered our social media outreach. Major contributors in promoting our mission in support of evolution include Marsha Lipton, wonderfully managing fulfillment in the store, and Beth Karish, whose efforts support our growing membership site. And, of course, a very, very special shout-out to Alex Lipton, whose fabulous video creations help bring into consciousness the principles of a thrivable world.

With Love, Light, and Gratitude,

What would your life be like if you learned that you are more powerful than you have ever been taught?

Groundbreaking scientific studies find that genes can be turned on and off by environmental signals including thoughts, feelings and emotions from outside the cell. Cellular biologist Dr. Bruce Lipton, a former medical school professor and research scientist, was one of the first scientists to posit such extra-cellular control. Dr. Lipton conducted a series of experiments that reveal that the cell membrane, the outer layer of a cell, is the organic equivalent of a computer chip, and the cell’s equivalent of a brain. Although this view conflicts with the widely held scientific dogma that genes control behavior, papers by other researchers have validated his iconoclastic thinking.
